THE PETITION FOR DE BOLT,
Does nil) ono doubt that a pctl

for tho appointment ot Judge Do
Holt to the Supremo Court of tho
Terrltoiy, despite the fact that Mr.
Anderson appeared to have a firm
hold on tho place and despite the
fact that Do Holt did not- have the
support of the Governor?
If nnjono questions these facts, let

casion for doubt.

Knowing Honolulu business men
as well as we do, this paper Is sat
isfied that the business nnd the pro
fessional men do not Intend to pur
chase peace at any such price, and,
furthermore, there Is no necessity
It Is hardly necessary to state that
the II u 1 1 e 1 1 ii Is not an enthusiast
on the Do Holt promotion. Wc feci
certain, however, that ho Is a strong
er man for the Supreme llench 'than
Mr. AhdersUli. And we are quite
clear on the' point that failure to
look or another tlmli these two
candidates for the placo Is not be
cause of any lack of first-class avail
able material. .
Hut to return Jo the petition. How
' ng has It been tho Amerlenn sys
tem for the peoplo to do us thcy.uro
told by the Executive rather than
for tho Executive to follow tho ob
vious mandate of the people?
What vigorous-minded citizen of
the United States would. In his Bane
moments, tell the thoughtful men ot
this city that they aro foolish not to
agree with the Governor though they
be convinced that ho is wrong and
his course Is a mistaken one?
ConVlctlon that the Governor Is In
error must have been tho reason for
tho general unanimity ot tho Do Holt
endorsement and later petition. Mr.
Do Dolt has fovv favors to grant and
tho Governor has. Tho signers nt
thnt petition know that their posi
tion in the matter will bo no secret,
Consequently the conclusion must be
drawn that theso gentlemen bollovb
Anderson should not ho appointed In
preference to Do Holt, mid they lire
not nfrnld to say1 so.
The II u 1 1 e 1 1 n would suggest as
a means to accomplish the best
progress of this Territory, thnt tho
Governor .Keep more closely in touch
with public sentiment and exert him
self to tho utmost to not only follow
It, hut fairly represent It, In his
dealings with Washington authori
ties. That Is the best way to secure
peace and a united community. Let's
havo a little give and take. Don't
force all the give from one side, re
