Honolulu ha- learned by expert

Iltlo Supervisors seem to have
mailo up their minds that they will

they tako the samo position on In

No one should consider that
tho Crane Incident is closed so
far as Mr. Crane's friends are
concerned. The atmosphcro or Chi
' cago is by no means comfortable
for Mr. Taft Jut now, and Mr.
Crane's friends are not likely to for
got, as witness the comment of Wil
liam Kent, one of Crane's personal
friends, and very well known here.
Mr. Kent Is quoted as saying, "The
heedlebs butchery of a friend Is too
soro a topic for temperate discus
sion. Mr, Crano's Chlcaen frio.wia
will got together to discuss the af
fair and take concerted action."
Mr. Crane refers to his recall as "a
personal humiliation such as no self-
.respecting man who is drafted Into
tho service should be called upon to
enuure, out i am grateful indeed
that I have had the test of official
iCholce and support here rather than
'In China, and now, rather than at
V'some crisis involving the honor or
tho Interest of the nation." Neither
Taft. nor Knox can slap a man of

'getting a return with interest at an
rappronrJate tlrao and Place.

This Is the verdict returned by n
Jury that listened to the caso of n
man who stabbed one of his fellow

brought to the police station after
committing tho murderous deed de

This man brought before tho bar
of Justlco on the charge of assault
with a cwapon "Imminently and ob

long struggle with a refractory
Juror, found guilty.
Not only Is he found guilty after
long deliberation, but In order to
secure a verdict he is recommended
to the mercy of tho court.
To tho mercy of tho court!
Great God, whnt for?
What rightful claim has any
Juror to commend the man who
missed tho fate of an assassin by so
narrow a margin to particular mer
cy of tho court?
Ily what rule of law, of Justice, or
of common decency Is any man In
such a position entitled to the spe

Wherein is Justlco served, In what
way Is the right of life, liberty and
the pursuit of happiness to bo more

Many citizens of Honolulu, no
doubt, felt Bomo satisfaction when
they learned that n verdict of guilty
had finally been secured after they
had been led to believe that tho
culprit In a vicious street stabbing
Hut tho final verdict returned by
the Jury Is almost an Insult to tho
Inw-ablding people of this country,
almost as completely a trnvesty
on justice, very nearly as powerful
an exhibition of tho daring Indiffer
ence with which certain aliens have
defied the laws of this Territory, as
a hung Jury would have been.
If this Is to be tho record of the
Juries In this Territory, tho Japan

to complain that they And It im
possible for Japanese residents to
secure protection fiom criminals or
fanatics of their own kind within
tho Territory of Hawaii.
American law Is common Justice,
and the extent to which the justice
of the Territorial courts has been
tempered with alleged mercy toward
the people engaged In promoting tho
recent strlko Is more likely to create
tho Impression among thn nllen peo
ple involved that the courts of
America are more "toft" than kind.
Escapo of rioters from their Just
deserts was a dlBgracc. Tho record
of the last six montliH has been ono
that should arouse every American
with a spark of respect for his coun
try In his soul.
Tho record Bhows that not only
were vicious aliens deliberately set
ting at naught the laws of the
country In which they find a kindly
domicile, but they were making
rules of their own, and further that
they have betn ablo to escape tlio

of tho cases growing out of tho

It u 1 1 e 1 1 n that his conclusion was
practically made on that basis or
whether a Juror's vote was bought,
tho fact remains that tho record ot
tho past six months Is such as to
point to the whole system of gov

sidious, alien, traitorous force.
