RErORT OE TEAr'ERANCE COA
A7VEE OF Y. A. C. A.
The following report, presented and adopted
at the last regular meeting of the Y. M, C. A.,
Nov. 16th, was ordered printed, ami the me
morial subjoined to be presented to the King
and Privy Council.
The special subject referred to us for consid
eration, and report at this lime is the question,
what lines of work can we lake up now, or
follow up, in promoting the cause of Temper
ance? This question is one of vital and pressing im
portance. Many of our young men in our
highest social circle it is said, have already
formed the habit of tippling. There have
been several instances reported of intoxication
at social parties and In the public streets. Such
advice as has been given from some pulpits lo
young men, "lo use ihc good things of this
life without abusing them," or "to let one's mo
deration be known of all men," affords license
and encouragement to those who need rather
warning and restraint. The Church of Christ
must hold up the high standard of precept and
practice we have had given to us in the teach
ings and example of the Lord Jesus. And
our Y. M. C. A. cannot take any lower stan
dard, or show to social evils any compromising
spirit unwarranted by Christ's life and works.
The professed disciples of Christ must be
united, heart and hand, if any successful effort
is to le nude to combat this hydrahcaded
monster of intcuqierance. We rejoice that
any of our English friends are moving in the
right direction. We shall rejoice still more
when all their Ministers ami all their congre
gations, shall by precept and example incul
cate ihe Christian duty of total abstinence
front all that can intoxicate.
Wc must do all that we can individually and
as an Association to awaken and foster a
healthy public sentiment. The press has lwcn
and will be, of great service. Much can lie
done by the circulation of Temperance litera
ture. The co-operating of members of this
Y, M, C. A. should be given to the work un
dertaken by "The Committee of twenty-one."
Frequent public meetings are needed to keep
the subject prominently and persistently before
the public. The development of public senti
ment js a nutter of slow growth. There is a
power In a growing tree to rend a rock, but it
takes years to do it. The power of living
growth it not the explosive force of a charge
of powder, touched ofTin a Hash. We would
rccoinu.cnd as one means of showing the in
creasing majority of temperance advocates,
and of helping to form public opinion, that
the members of this Association wear the blue
ribbon, as a temperance badge. What this
V, M. C. A. ought to do in Ibis department
of f hmti.m work, is similar to that properly
exacted of Ihe ( hurch of ( hrist. The sphere
of Ihe t hurch, i more comprehensive thin
thai of any Tcmjierancc Sociely. And our
main object, helping )oung men to a vlgorou
and rvnnly social hnslian life, require of us
thai Ihe reformation of the intemperate should
lie regarded a one of Ihe incidental and sub
sidiary object of our Awmciallnn. Vet In Ihc
opinion of our Commlllc, one of the most
Iwneficcnt ami Christ-like enterprise In which
till V. M. C. A. has engaged, ha liecn "the
Saturday Evening Gospel Temperance Meet
ing." Here have lieen over sixty case of re
formation during ihc fourteen month In which
tlit meeting ha liecn held, and only four of
those who have signed Ihc special pledge and
roll, have gone back again lo liquor, drinking.
All Ihc member of ihl Awiciation should
feel ajaiecial interest In the success of this
meeting. Wc may not all be able to take an
active mrt nurselvc in Ihat meeting, Init wc
can show onic appreciative sympathy for Ihc
brother, who In liecn the head and front, Ihc
Imckbone and Ihc right hand of that meeting.
vac ought also lo replenish "the Relief rund,"
which under Mr. Aldridge's prudent manage
ment his proved of such service to many a
one in need.
Your Committee arc of the opinion Ihat it
Is not desirable for Ihi Aociatlon lo assume
any rcpnnibllity a an organization In efforts
thai may properly lie made lo suppress Intem
perance by enforcing Ihe law. The new
liquor law ha proved Itself a curse let loose
iikiii Ihe people of Honolulu. Your Commit
tee arc of the opinion that prohibition Is Ihc
short and simple cure, which government must
ultimately adopt, lo slop Ihc ravages of Intern
pcrancc, as lotal abstinence Is Ihc short and
simple way of safety for the Individual. Wc
never can be free from Ihe burdens entailed by
intemperance until there shall have been en
acted n clear and clean Prohibitory Law.
yet if cflort is wisely made Id enforce the
Civil Damage Act, for Instance, the experi
ment is worth trying, ami worthy of the sup
port of members of this Association.
The new liquor law is vi false in principal
and so faulty in construction, thai Ihosc on
whom rests Ihc resonsil(ilily for this piece of
legislation, and whose Niast it was that they
would make liquor free, miy well hesitate to
extend its baneful influence lo other districts.
As an Association we may prox-r!y attempt lo
influence legislation by a ctition to the Privy
Council to refuse licenses. The petitions, pre
pirctl and presented by this Association two
years ago, were instrumental in securing the
veto of the law passed at that session. Your
Committee submit herewith the draft of a me
morial which they recommend should be
adopted and forwarded immediately. The
Psalmist pertinently inquires of Jehovah, "shall
the throne of iniquity have fellowship with
Thee, which formcth mischief by a law?" We
Iwlicvc we arc in fellowship with God, follow
ing out the line of His purposes in every legit
mate effort wc may put forth to destrov the
demon of intemperance, or lo limit his power
for cv il.

The follow ing is a copy of the memorial pre
sented to the King and Privy Council :
"Wc have been instructed by the Young
Men's Christian Association to present to your
Honorable Hotly the following statement and
"Ever since the new liquor law went into
operation it has been increasingly manifest that
its effects are harmful. Wages have been
spent for drink instead of the necessaries of
life. Kamilics have been left destitute of foot,
and wives have wailed in bitter grief before
liquor saloons where their husbands were wast
ing in drunken riot the money that was needed
to purchase the necessaries of life. Employers
have liecn embarrassed in their business tic
cause those on whose labor they depended
were unfitted by intoxication for the work they
w ere paid to do. The law has utterly failed
to repress the secret illegal sales by Chinese
and others. The vilest compounds arc sold,
antl the deleterious effects of alcoholic liquors
arc multiplied by the adulterations palmed off
as gin and whiskey and brandy. Crimes com
mitted under the influence of liquor are on the
increase, and poverty; is clutching in its grip
the fast-fading native race, succumbing also
more quickly even- than lieforc to the attack
of Disease on bodies enfeebled by drink. Young
men who ought to lie fitting themselves for
places of responsibility antl usefulness, are
constantly being tempted to waste their time
and energies, and forfeit their opportunity for
acejuiring skill in their occupation, or accumu
lating property for future profitable business
ventures, by indulgence in the liquor saloon.
Wc do therefore respectfully petition your
Honorable Hotly, in view of these evident and
acknowledged evils, arrising from the sale of
alcoholic beverages, that you withhold your
sanction from any additional licences for the
sale. A. Pratt, President,
W.J. How en, Secretary;
