Contention Of JudQeAshford That
Power of Confirmation Lies
With 'Circuit Court and Not
Supreme Court ll Denied
C AN FRANCISCO, March 8
(Associated Press) The cir
cuit court of appeals yesterday!
handed lowi1 aty pihinn sustain- j
ing (he -"right of the Supreme
Court of Hawaii to appoint trus-t
tees to fill vacancies on the board
of the Bishop F.state, denying the
contention of Circuit Judge Ash
ford that the right to appoint has
now devolved upon a circuit court
judge sitting in equity.
The decision, written by Judge
Wolvertoit, says that personal in
terest arising out of pride of opin
ion to have one's choice of tfp
pointment sustained does not nec
essarily entail judicial bias.

, claiming that? th right devolved apoa
f hlitf as ' circuit eourt Judge Mlttiag
in equity, r The ttaoset of authority,
he decided, had ben incladed In the
Judiciary Act IfferttVa ' January 1,
ISM. The itatement Xf the court waa
a long one, reviewing, much of the
history of the Bishop Estate and the
Kamehameha Schoola. ' ' J
Umler the authority claimed, Judge
Aahford appointed Charles K. King, ao
nlnmnus of the Kamehameha Befools
of the first elasa of 1891'. The reasons
given why the appointment of Mr.
Williamson waa not regarded by him
as aatisfactory were "that it haa aot
beeu made to appear that he ia ao qual
ified, by length of residence in Hawaii,
or by familiarity aad sympathy with
the history, mannerl, customs, lang
uage, i, teals and aspirations of the Ha
waiian people aa to mark him out as
a nt ami suitable person to ie appoint
ed to au office where he would he au
thorized and expected to exercise a
wide, benevolent aad sympathetic dia
oration with refereneea to the educa
tion of lluwaiiau youth, of either sex,
uad concerning the general scheme,
xysteni and regulation to be adopted
and olHrved duriug their attendance
at the schools in question."
The position on the board has been
belli, pending the decision of the ap
.enl, by Mr. Williamson, under authori
ty of the derision of the supreme
court. The cane has been of most di
rect interest throughout the Islands,
the appointment of Mr. King by Judge
Ashford. on the fact of his Hawaiian
Mood, having stirred the community,
for and against th basis of the ap
(.ointment. The Kamehameha Alumni
have been particularly Interested, Mr.
King being an alumnus and the first
such to be so recognized. Adding to
the interest has beea the fact that the
alumni have been criticising the mau
ngement aad curriculum of the schools
nnd insisting that there should be a
Hawaiian trustee to bring about the
reform they believed necessary.
