Judge Arthur A. Wilder takes own life, 1917.

TAKES HIS OWN LIFE

Former Judge Arthur A. Wilder of the supreme court took his own life with a bullet from a pistol. The bullet entered beneath his right eye and exited behind the side of his head and he died instantly. He carried this out at the home of his cousin, James A. Wilder, in the evening of this past Thursday at Kalia, Honolulu.

He was one of the knowledgeable attorneys of this town, and a fair judge while he was sitting on the bench.

This happened as a result of bad feelings as a result of Mr. Watson leaving his seat on the supreme court in place of Mr. Wilder [Mr. Wilda].
