The president has gone into action aft or Ion ir it.l.v l V A Judicial appointments, with the noml nation of Attorneys Ashfcrd and Ed lngs to circuit bench positions. An Associated Press wireless dispatch to the Star-Bulletin shortly before 11 o'clock this morning came almost si multaneously with a special cable message from this paper's Washing ' ton correspondent The Star-Bulletin" immediately informed the appointees of the president's action. V The news of the appointment of Attorneys Ashford and Edings has been variously interpreted in various quarters. It is generally held to be a victory for the Bar Association, which indorsed Edings for the Maui bench and gave a quasi-lndorsement to Confirmation Expected. No doubt exists that the two men will be confirmed. There may . be a prelect, It Is felt here, for It is known that there Is opposition to each, but . that this opposition will be success ful Is not believed. -Ashford, according io the cable news, . Is named to succeed H. E Cooper, whose term expired March Jfcv,J$JlL Judge" Cooper, Jert tefcen"ch at the expiration cf lus term.-'' JrJ-e ri:r.rs is named to succeed Jud,e StlJcn n.

Governor Tinkham, while docllninf to diecuss the appointments, Is not pleased with the situation, lis hat not favored either of the men men tioned for the positions to which thej are txow appointed. To this extent, his friends feel that ha has failed to get support from Washington, for his pians ana ponces in uawau. In the McCarn camp, the appoint as an evidence that the district at torney is vindicated, as both -of the men are his supporters. Both have appeared as his counsel In fighting the territorial and tederal Indictments brought against una tor the McCarn McBrlde affray. , ; C' Offley Gets Action, i . i . One thing generally recognized Is that the president is taking action on the advice of W. M. Offley, the quiet, lynx-eyed investigator sent here by the denartment of justice to nrobe the local situation. f Offley, declare those on the Inside, recommended the appointment of Mr. Ashford, and it Is believed, he recom mended Judge Edings also. The fact that Offley is reported from Washington as adverse to Me; Cam is taken to mean that the Ash-ford-Edlngs appointments are not Mc Carn victories. Lven McCarn's friends point out that McCarn is not upheld by the investigator who recommended Edings and Ashford. - Bar Association Members Gratified. gratified at the President's action, ac cording to a leader of the local bar. On January 16 the association indors . v n..u..- ed Judge Edings for the Maul bench. The stand taken by the association upon a successor for Judge Cooper is ratber peculiar.

While the conference was private, the information was given out short ly after adjournment was taken that some little difficulty will be experi enced in completing the panel. Of the present panel, 30 jurors now are subject to call. Of these jurymen, 12 sat in the Sylvester case and there fore will be disqualified. There are about five of the present panel who are now known to desire to be ex cused for reason oTf business hardship. It Is also probable that several more of these Jurors will ask to be excus ed for similar reasons.

The question now is being considered whether the court shall draw a panel from bystanders of Ho nolulu on the day of the commence ment of the trial August lOor from the box by lot in advance from voters of the whole territory: - The opinion now is, however, that a panel will be drawn from the entire territory.

From every standpoint the practice was a success and Captain H. J. Hatch, commanding the 104th company, came in for congratulatnons from those who witnessed the firing. This morning's practice was what might be termed an, added number., on the week's program, in that it does not count in the target record of the com pany. Each battery Is allowed to fire a pertain amount of service ammuni tion each year to observe the effect of the burst and it was these high ex plosive shells that ;were being fired today.

Today's firing would have torn any target to pieces with the first shot so the imaginary target was ..used..1 '. . - The range this morning was about 3500 yards and although there was a tedious delay in getting the target on the course, owing to the breaking of a tow-line and a mix-up of signals from shore to ship, there was no delay from the battery once the word was given to commence fire. . - General Carter, the department com mander, was an interested spectator of the firing this morning.
