Mr. Smith were In dead earnest for

personal grievances, the case In

defending himself against the Bul

standing of the case for the People
in the pending cases.
The truth is, his present open

SMITH'S N)TuF GOLD.
When the II u 1 1 e 1 1 n last night
referred to highly valuable and
gratuitous services rendered by Mr.
Kinney personally to the editor of
tho Advertiser at a trying time
In tho experiences of that gentleman,
it seems that upon reading the arti
cle In question Smith threw himself
back In his editorial chair and ex
claimed repeatedly, "How mean to
refer to that subject," and In this
morning's Issue of the Advertiser
the person in question calls our ac
tion a "mean personality."
This Incident Illustrates ngaln the
monopolies claimed and largely en
joyed In this community by Mr.
Smith In vituperation and attack.
For some days, If our eyes have
not deceived us, that man has been
speaking of tho pot of gold at tho
end. of the rainbow as the MOTIVE
01' THE PROTEST IN I1EHALF OF
THE STRIKE PROSECUTION
AGAINST HIS KNOCKING. The
word "FEE" and "WOItKINO FOR
A FEE" together with the pot of
gold reference has been upon the
lips of Mr. Smith and rolled au a
sweet morsel under his tonguo
throughout this controversy.
When, under these circumstances
(ho having opened the fee question
himself and kopt It going), refer
ence was made by the B u I ) e 1 1 n
to the occasion when this fee-hunt
ing lawyer stood between Editor
Smith and Jail, or extreme danger of
jail, without a fee, ho Immediately
throws up his hands, tosses his pen
upon the table and declares that the
meanness of that outfit in referring
to the Incident in question beggars
This simply means that tho King
can do no wrong, and It Walter 0.
Smith cannot enjoy an exclusive mo
nopoly of vituperntlon and personal
attack, he will sink the Islands, and,
with grip In hand, will hie to pas
WJS KINNEY PAID A FEE?
An Interview with Mr. Kinney as
to the question of fees In reference
to the Indictment of Editor Smith
several years ago elicits the state
ment that Mr. Kinney has positively
no recollection of ever having re
ceived a fee of any kind for the ser
vices rendered his recollection be
ing decidedly tho other way that
he may possibly be mistaken and
that a small fee may have been paid,
but he has no recollection whatever
of any such circumstance, und he
should very much like to see a re
celpt for any money paid for tho ser
vices In question.
'Tlioso now hero who were resi
dents of Honolulu at the time re
member perfectly well the clrcum
Btances of tho Humphreys-Smith In
Mr. Walter G. Smith was cited
personally as a witness before the
Grand Jury to glvo evidence under
oath touching u matter then being
Investigated by that body. Ha did
so, wus sworn, and mndo curtain
statements which turnod out not to
be true. Tho Grand Jury Indicted
blm for perjury. The general pub
lic then and now believed that there
was nothing wilful In the mis-state
raents of Mr. Smith, and there Is no
doubt that Mr, Kinney then and
now entertains that view.. Smith
having been Indicted, It was In or
der to try him for the offense, and
it soon became apparent that Judge
Humphreys, then In n desporate
frame of hostility and bitterness
against Mr.. Smith arising out of a
long, bitter and open controversy In
tho press and otherwise, was going
to preside at Smith's trial. Smith
and his friends felt that this would
be absolutely unfair, and that It It
took place .Mr, Smith ran a chance
of being convicted, where, according
lo their view, Justice required nothing
of the kind.
Under theso circumstances the
question nroso how to prevent Judge
Humphreys from presiding.
There was no statutory disqualifi
cation, the only possible question
being whether the courts might not
hold a disqualification In enso an
actve, deep and bitter personnl bins
and hostility on the part or tne
Judge was shown to exist.
This, though a forlorn hope, was
the only chance In sight In tho judg
ment of n number of prominent at
torneys who came to Smith's assist
ance, including Mr. Kinney, and this
forlorn hope was no hope at all un
less It brought out to the fullest de
gree the hostility and bias charged.
Under theso circumstances affidavits
were prepared, material for which
was furnished by Mr. Smith himself,
going at length and In detail Into
the bitter feud existing between the
Judge and the prisoner at the bar.
It is quite true, as Smith now
says, that these affidavits were pre
pared without regard to consequenc
es, and certainly with no flinching
on the part of the men who prepar
ed and presented the material fur
nished by Mr. Smith.
When It was completed and sworn
to somebody had to present It, and
that somebody who undertook the
Job was Mr. Kinney, though it was
freely predicted and expected that
the result of presenting the motion
and affidavits would be Imprison
ment for the lawyer thnt did It. Mr.
Smith never spoke truer words than
when he now says: "The affidavit
was 'unguarded,' " and it Is equally
true that the man who reaped the
benefit of that desperate protest
against his trial by a bitter enemy
was this same Mr. Smith who now
chides Kinney with having drawn
up an unguarded affidavit.
It Mr. Kinney had been on his
guard, ho never would have run the
risk at all, which was a service rend
ered beyond tho strict requirements of
his professional obligations, and
which, as a matter of fact, was not
purchasable with money. Mr. Kin
ney, together with Judge Hallou und
Judge Hartwell, his associates, who
were only Incidentally concerned
with the matter, were sent to Jail
for contempt of court, Mr. Smith es
caped unscathed, and later the At
torney General dropped the case.
This we think an unvarnished
statement ot the situation brought
out by the Incessant suggestion ot
tho editor ot tho Advertiser that tho
strike prosecution 's attitude ot dis
trust towards him Is merely the
eagerness ot counsel to get a fee.
The most suggestive feature ot
Smith's reply this morning to the
matter ot past services rendered by
Kinney and the best Index by which
to read the man is the claim of Edi
tor Smith that "he never employed

a bill from him and never owed him
