The intention is to glva the San

How thin diversion ia being accom
plished, both through congestion of
freight and by the operation of the
freight broker, i told by W. J. Moy
lan, tniflie 1 manager of Dill-Crosctt,
Inc., who condemn the operation of
some of the steamship companies oper
ating from here. This i what Moylan
ays: , '
"We bnve just booked 0500 ton of
freight over the Chicago, Milwaukee
k rtt. Paul railroad, through Seattle
and thence to the Orient. Aa aoon a
it reaches Seattle there will be ; a
there have ftlwuya been steamer
there to take it. There will be no
delay and we are certain of the Ship
ments. Whyt Because the steamship
men at Senttle are absolutely fair and
do not "overbook" their vessels. That
is the vital point.
Ship Men Blrvned
"What ha been our experience
heref I have several hundred ton of
resin in San Francisco and thia freight
bns been here from the East for two
month. I hold in my desk a definite
written contract with a steamship com
pany, entered into before I ordered the
resin. When the resin arrived what
happened t Steamer after steamer of
that line left port, carrying freight at
the choicest rats eeeured by freight
brokers while freight contracted for
delivery is utterly ignored.
"It is useless to go to law bocause
the government would not permit us
to. tie up a steamer pending litigation.
"We have had good here to go to
Japan since August 10, under contract
with another steamship line not the
Toyo Kisen Kalsha. That does us ho
good. The Japanese purchasers have
now refused to take the goods.
"There is no such condition and no
such congestion at Seattle, and no such
methods among the steamship men.
The business men in Seattle pull to
gether and would not tolerate it.
"The Kxporters' and Importer' As
sociation is forming to correct such a
state of affairs, if it i ossible. It
may be ablo to do something. If not,
you may rest assured that the import
ers and exporter will favor Seattle,
much a they would rather do business
through here. I suppose that at least
eight out of ten of these men are al
ready preparing, to switch their busi
ness north, if they have not already
"There are steamship men in Sun
Frnncisco who live up to their con
tracts, particularly the Pacific Mail
mid the Toyo Kisen Kaisha. There
are others who do not, and their at
titude hurts San Francisco,
"Our people have been practically
boycotted in certain circles here be
raiiNo I have made statement like
those among shipping men, but that
does us no injury as long as we are
handling everything through Seattle.
"The jam of cars in the terminals
here is not so much to be laid at the
doors of the railroads as with some of
the steamship people. By the system,
in vouue, cars are delivered to the Stat'
Kelt Line at the command of the dock
superintendents. I know of -instance
where money ha been paid by ship
pers to got their cars out of the jam
and their goods into the holds of the
Trelcht Tied Up
"Our position is thut we have 2800
ton of freight tied up in Snn Frsn
riseo, which ha been accumulating for
the past there month. We brought
it here on steamship contract to load,
prior to making the purchase of the
goods. There are more than 100 local
exporters in the same fix, with vary
ing amounts of freight.
" Do vou blame u for going else
where f What els can we dot We are
not point out of business, and if we
cannot get service here we will have
to do business where we can. San
Francisco is losing its business; It is
losing the ndvnnt.nge of emploving hun

ance the young men are enrolled in the

month. There they are given the op

"We are having a. large number of

Major Clark yesterday. As "a" rule

' ."When we get our planes here and

Resignation of Chief Justice and
His Statements Regarding" . '
It Cause Discussion
Chief Justice A. TJ. W. Robertson '
resignation and frank statement he
has made disapproving of the ppliey
followed by the Washington admtnia
tratlqn In making judicial Appointment
were topic that engaged the interest
of tb legal fraternity in Honolulu yes
terday, but no steps bad been taken
last night by political bodies or by the
bar association to aet in the matter of
nominating a uceeseor, though it is ex
pected that the new appointment will
be announced from Washington within
the next two weeks.' '
In forwarding his resignation to Pres
ident Wilson Monday afternoon Judgo
Robertson asked to have; it take effect
by December 30. It waa suggested that
press of war work at Washington or
other matter might cause the -appoint-
nent to be delayed so that a successor
could not be named in the time fixed i
Judge' Robertson's resignation. 1 Asked
If he would eontinae to serve in the
event of snch a delay, Judge Robertson
answered, "I auppne eo," but he ex
pressed the belief that a ueeor
would - be named before the month 1
, In speaking of matters in connection
with his resignation last night Judge
Robertson criticized a 'purported re
port of statementa he had made, pub
lished In the afternoon newspaper. He
declared that a wrong Impression had
been given In the report.
An Important factor that led to his
actioa he said was the present admin
istration's policy of making judicial ap
pointments. "Time, was," his state
ment nvs, "when a judicial position
In this Territory, especially one on the
upreme' bench, could properly be re
garded as a high honor, but that time
ceased when judicial appointment were
dragged . ipto politic. The ahabby
treatment which the administration ac
corded Judge Dole etanl a a warning
to all that no appreciation or gratitude
need be expected for even life-long ser
vice and devotion to the public good."
Judge . Robertson particularly criti
cised the manner in which the report
of hla statement had been presented to
the public. A heading stated the chief
justice In resigning "hinted at politi
Did No Hinting
"The headline to the article in ques
tion,," Judge Robertson aaid in a writ
ten statement, "is entirely misleading.
I hinted at no political jobbery or job
bery of any kind. I had fn mind only
facts of common knowledge. Those are
that the judges' terms are' sliort Kinly
four years, and the chances are. .as
Jndge Perry, DeBolt, Cooper and Par
sons, as well a Judge Dple,'ean verify,
that unless one la in aecord with the
national administration, he will nqt be
reappointed, however, satisfactory hi
work on the bench mav have been. The
instance of the reappointment of Judge
Whitney and myself are exception
which merely prove the rule.
"The existing condition .with re
Teet to judicial appointment are per
fectly well understood. There is no
need of 'hinting' at anything, much
les at 'jobhery. '
'One thing the Star-Bolletin neg
lected to say was that I have enioyed
my experience on the bench very much
and greatly regret that circumstance
have arisen which make ft advisable
for me to resign at thi time."
To Resume Practise
Judge Robertson' disapproval of the
administration's policy is but a single
factor entering into the reasons for his
action. He stated thnt "a combination
of circumstances" led hint to quit the
bench, but he was unwilling to go into
any other reasons than those he spoke
of. He said that it is his intention
to return to private practise, but he
was not willing to make public any
thing in thi connection now or to
state what new affiliation lie might be
In political circles a question is
whether or not Judge Robertson's suc
cessor will be a Democrat.. Associate
Justice James L. Coke is said to be in
line for the vacancv created, as well
ss Associate Justice R. P. Queries, and
Circuit Judge Clarence W. Ashford's
name has been mentioned.
Former Pnited Statos Judge Charles
P. demons, who ha also been men
tioned as a possible successor, has stat
ed that it is impossible for him to con
sider permitting his name to be men
tioned. Concerning Judge Robertson's future
activities, it ha been urged that he
would he the logical man to fill a place
on the board of trustee for the Bishop
estate, a position over wheh there
has been some conflict of opinion In
court. Delegate Kuhio had been sug
gested n a trustee, but a he is ohliged
to be in Washington so much of the
time, it i rontfindnl by spme that aome
other should be named. '

It has been customary to pse crude

The police will bring Buick before

crime which Buick is charged with
provides for a fine, in case of convic
tion, of not exceeding one thousand
dollars or imprisonment at hard labor
of not more than. live years.
The detective department, under Cap
tain McDuftie, haa worked continuously
on the case, and ita members believe
they hove woven a chain of circum
stances about the prisoner, and that
any effort to prove au alibi against this
barrier will be difficult.
At the time Buick was captured by
the' puliee he wore a hat and did not
possess' a revolver. ' The police ' say
they havo affidavits from a number of
people that' he was prone to wear a
cap, but tbia cap has not been fmin.l
since the aasault, and was not at his
room or places he frequented. Furth
ermore, the police have located a num

former having been in the possession
of Buick not long before the assault.
During the Jatter part of November
Buick is ullegnd to havo had a revolver
which ho showed to a number of people
in a public place, being unable at the
time to get it togother after he had
taken it apart.
There are a number of other Inter

Compensation Act : -Constitutional
Says Supreme Court
Ruling of Circuit Judge Ashford
Is Overturned Higher Tribu
nal Following Legal . Fight" On
Validity of 1917 Statute .
In a ruling of the supreme eourt writ
ten by Chief Jastica A. O. M. Robert
son, , and handed down yesterday, the
Workmen' Compenation Act. passed
by the 1917 legislstare Is held to be
constitutional. The decision follow a
legal fight in the course of which the
measure was held to be unconstitutional
by Judge C. W. Ashford when the ease
ws heard in the-circuit eourt. .
The uit under which the act was
tested was a damage suit filed In
March of Inst year by Edgar T. Ander
son, a workman employed by the Ha
waiian Dredging Company. He suffered
erion injuries in a fall from a aeaffoli
while at work on a steel scow and he
sued the eompany for JO,fM)0.
When ihe ease was presented In the
circuit eourt the dredging company,
through It attorneys, offered a de
murrer, contending that any claim An
derson held fqr injuries received came
within the scope of the .Workmen's
Compensation Act. The demurrer wa
overruled wdth leave to answer, arid an
interloeqfory bill of exceptions waa cer
tified to the supreme court. :
The long ruling of the eourt is most
comprehensive and question railed in
connection with 1 the 'proceedings are
deftlth with in detail. Under th term
of the ruling the ease i reminded to
the circuit eourt with instructions to
vacate the order given there and sus
tain th demurrer.
The decision states that 7
"The right of the legislature to estab
lish a new 'system based upon the theory
pnderlying workmen's -compensation
aets doe not necessarily depend upon
whether the employe was engaged in
' haxurdous' or extra 'batardous' em
ployment, or on whether he ia a skilled
or unskilled workman, or upon the mak
ing of any such 'classifications. The
act fn which classifications have been
made have not been sustained because
of them, but in spite of them. Nor does
the legislative power depend on the In
clusion of a provision for a govern
mental compensation fund to which all
employers shall contribute.' In our
view the theory of the statute of this
Territory that each employer, should
provide for the compensation of the em
ployes injured in his own employ is
every whit ns reasonable aa that of the
California act. Its natural ; tendency
would be to cause greater care and, bet
ter management on the' part of employ
ers of labor." " . . '
