One ot tho last acts of the retiring

arguments and sets them forth In his
best and most forcible stylo. The
letter Is as follows:

"An administrative officer has often

every law Is an abridgment of a pri

Justice and permanency depends upon
its usefulness to tho majority. Every
rule has its exceptions, and a law In
our country which is obnoxious to the
people will not stand for any length ot
time, nor will they long tolerate Its en

often will enforce an obnoxious law
in order to secure its early repeal. But
we In Hawaii' realize that tho coast
wise law has much of merit in It, and,
do not believe that your department
should enforce it in such a manner as
to make it obnoxious, with a view to
securing its repeal, for tho lawmaking

"I have It on so high an authority
