W !Enot!ce,f ,say Collier's Weekly, of July ,7,
. . a recent ift Wiat 'seems to us an unusually
bold cas the fftorts occasionally made
. s .... '
. courts to punish men for contempt other than con
tempt committed StTtlie presence of the court. No-
TKKiy denies the right of a judge to visit summary
punishment 'for contempt committed within the
. court room. Such a right is
orderly judicial procedure. But when the alleged
contempt occurred Outside of) the presence; cif the
court thyf flPn'fQfl jwfljr, hcdgc hpuld..be
at one and Hie same time prosecutor, judge, and
jury, .Cases of this kind have occurred more or
Jess recently ia Ohio and Colorado. , . X . '.!
A later case "occurs in New Mexico. . A , news
paper,, the. New Mexican published at Santa Fe,
became involved in a libel suit in the course of its
opposition to the local political machine. The case
was tried before Judge Merritt C. Mechem. During
the trial one of the plaintiff's attorneys, it was al
leged, signaled to the plaintiff on the witness stand
, in the course of his examination and suggested by
, signals negative or affirmative answers to ques
tions put by the newspaper's attorneys. Reputable
persons testified that they had witnessed this per
formance, and the attention of the judge .was
' drawn to it in 6pen court. He refused to take any
. t.ction, on the ground that he had not himself seen
the signaling, and that it was a matter for another
tribunal.":' " : ' 1
Later, charges were filed with
Bar. Examiners against the lawyer, ' and Judge
.: Mechem camejtq. , the, rescue of the accused in', a
strong statement sworn to before a United States
commissioner, about whose right to swear a per
son under, these circumstances there is now some
question. The New Mexican charged that", the
statements in this alleged affidavit wjre directly
contrary to the judge's statements at the time of
the alleged signaling in the court room, and rather
severely criticized him as a witness. The judge
, has cited .Colonel Branson M, Cutting, president
of the newspaper, corporation, E. Dana Johnson,
its editor, and Francis C, Wilson, its attorney, be
fore him for contempt. .' He will, if the usual pro
ceedings in "such cases are followed, hear the evi
dence, if he allows any evidence, will sit in judge
ment Li Ins own case, and will render a verdict. , It
may. be a jail sentence, and the sentence may be
- indefinite.-.'; .' '. -".' v .' .'
We call attention to these facts because it is an
other example of an attempted terrorization cf the
press on, the part of .the judiciary which, in our
judgement, ought' to be stopped. .If the press' can
not criticize a judge the same as any other public
ofricer; the' press will be rendered silent. There is
no reason inherent in the nature of a judge's func-1
tiona which should give to him, as against offenses
committed outside the presence of the court, any
remedy other than the remedy open .to every 'rinir
public Officer. ' There is something essentially ab-
. horrent in ;;rr one man beinf at one and the same
time in (he position of prosecutor, jury, and judge.
Tor J he man who makes an accusation to have also
unqualified, power. to try; the case and name the
: punishment U so contrary to the American idea of
law, to say nothing of fair 'play, that it can be con-
. Ceded only , tinker, the most restricted circum-
. stances;.. v';' '. . ,' ',
A S an advertisement of the fact that July 31 is
A Registration Day and as a way of giving
notice to all the people of Hawaii that the day
has been set aside by the President for a certain,
. necessary and patriotic duty, the proclamation de
claring it public holiday is justified.
It is probably not at all necessary in Honolulu,
nor in Hita, nor in the two or thee other centers
of population, but it is necessary. that nothing be
left undone to, focus the. attention of the people
of the various inland hinterlands upon the fact that
every male resident whatever his nationality or
' citizenships-must present himself at the regular
f oiling booth in his precinct for registration if he
has attained his twenty-first birthday and has not
passed hU.thirty-first. , : ' . . -
."J The .impression continues to be prevalent that
Registration Day is of interest only to citizens, and
this, impression must be cleared away.
" f Hawaii has never been asked to do such a thing
before and, in all probability, will never be asked
to do it again. We ought, therefore, to be able to
spare this one day out of eternity from our regular
bMsiness...If .necessary,. Jet a iop .off a few of the
vnnecessary holidays we nowr have to make up

-Take the worda of Chrtat, 'f Wbonoever amiteth thee

' Thooo worda were never meant to be understood in a .

U1T7HO will dictate the terms of peace? If
: W- Germany '.does, God help you and me,"
writes Roger. W. Babson, special writer for the
Saturday Evening Post, lecturer and author, who
has . written a little pamphlet containing all that
it is necessary to say to Americans about the war.
The pamphlet is entitled "Two Stories," and these
sre: V . ,
"I want to Bnd Marshal Joffre! Can you tell me, ,
Mister where tho' great f reach general ia staying! ",
asked little girl of everyone she met It was oa ,.
the; morning of May 18, 1917, in Boston, when tho
hero of the Marao waa, visiting that city. :. V,',
Bono poop! brushed jthe child aside; others polite; ''
ly answered her ..tho best, they could, finally aho'
reached tbo Seara homo on Beacoa Street where tho '
marshal waa ataylag. 1 will not bother you with any
more of tho story excepting to say that this poor littlo ..
girl had brought Joffre one red rose and all her lif 'a ','
savings, amounting to about ten dollars.
, "I want , to givo these," she said, "to help tbo ,
good people of Franco and the littlo orphans over
there about whom I havo heard. I haven't much),
but I cannot bo happy so long as I have more than1
"God bloaa you, my dear child," replied the famous
man, aa bo leaned over and kissed her. "When tho
people of your great country catch your great spirit,
tho war.,wiU.ooa bo over.' i ;
A. friend of mine recently went thyough a clothing''
factory where women were, making coats for our sol-, '
diora. While passing along through the aisle he no
. ticod that homo of tho people seemed much more in
terested ia their' work than others, A ho waited in .
on of the rooma for his guide to answer a call, hi
eyes fell upoa a middle-seed white-haired man. When
apokea to, this man looked up to my friend with a
out wita eyes saa aud weary,
aeour o interested in iny!workfyou,.'i'wlkoa kii School, CUaxrinan , Bam

Europe many year aad realize what those old French
comrade of mine aro fighting for. You see, I .don 't
need to work, but I wanted to help in some , way. i
I am a tailor by trade, so . I thought I could, beat help ',
her in this place. Of course,'! would novo liked
a pleasanter job; but so long as I can help, it make
mo happy Just tho am."
Now these stories show the spirit which w6 all
need to. catch, comments Mr- Babson. "Never
mind how the, war started," he says. "Probably
Germany was' hot the only guilty one in bringing
on the terrihle conflict. We can forget the past ;
hut we cannot forget the future. We. can atop
talking about ,the beginning of the war; butl we
cannot atop talking about the end of the war. The
rurest bet fcoday is that the war will end some day
und in .some way. The greatest bet today relates
to. who ;will "dictate the terms of peace. ;,. If Ger
