This obvious fact is not to the
discredit to Mr. Anili'tson. Attorneys
and tho people who know him havo
the most kindly feeling tor 'the mall

mended by the Governor. And for
that tcason there -would bo n general
hesitancy to, lodge a formal protest
against Mr. Anderson.
The belief is general, however,
that there are others better equipped
In consequence of tho finishing

the mature Judgment that comes or

All this has been clearly manifest
in the action of tho Honolulu ll.ir

Similar Ideas nre expressed in bus
iness circles vvliero tho suggest

ops no enthusiasm, ns well ns no

' The gist of the whole situation Is
that tho nverngo citizen In every
walk ot life believes that community
expression should havo more weight
In appointment to public office than
the say-so of ono man; also, that when
men of Judicial experience, capacity
hnd pioved worth mo available, the
