Aliens as Proposed changes in the existing; liquor
Liquor Dispensers, laws soein to have called forth more
senseless expressions than tiny thing heard of for a long time-
Dickey's crowd of visionary theorists are clamoring for local option
but instead of giving local option propose to prohibit the legiti
mate sale of liquors by refusing to grant to any person for a term
of two years a license where a petition signed by a majority of the!
voUrs in that place has been tiled with the County Board of Sup
ervisors. This means that the Government will lose n large reve
nue from ligitimate dea'ers whilo illicir. soiling would soon become
rampant and it would cost a very large sum each year to control
the trade. To stamp out the traffic would be next to impossible.
The proposition to have the liquor business entirely in the hands
of American citizens would improve the evil . conditions thatnow
exist and should be oue of the changes in thoyprcscnt law. Every
one knows that all classes of Asiatics are constantly violating
many of our laws and will continue to do so as they do not respect
our institutions nor customs and will obey only such laws as they
are compelled to. Visit almost any Saloon outside of Wailuku that
is run by a Jap or a Chinaman and you will find women and minors
hanging about the place after night more or less under the in
fluence of liquor while places licensed to Americans are nearly all
free from this class of people.
It should not be the purpose of the legislature to make any dis
crimination against Japanese or Chinese in the persuit of trade
but the betterment of the evil conditions that have been brought
on by these people should be the purpose of that body.
The proposition to prevent the issuance of a license to any ono
for a term of two years by the presentation of a petition signed by
a majority of the legal voters of that place is too silly for anv in
telligent body' to consider. Any one who lias intelligence enough
to keep out of the insane asylum knows that any one can get a
majority of the voters to sign a petition either for or against any
old thing and to drive out of business any class of people by this
means would be an injustice that would be a disgrace to the legis
lature while it would give an impetus to crime by encouraging
illicit selling of liquor.
Only a few years ago liquor could be bought in nearly every
coffee shop run by an Oriental throughout the Territory and yet
how few were convicted for the offense It was the purpose of the
Governor to stop this that the present law was enacted and it is to
the credit of the Governor that his bill did practically put an end
to illicit selling in such places.
Since the San Francisco school question has come up many
foolish expressions have been heard of the danger of offending
these people and even in print may be found expressions equally
silly. More lawyers have developed in the last few months than
have been licensed since the organization of the Courts and each
one interprets the terms of the American- Japaueso Treaty to suit
himself while the Constitution of the United States is made to
guarantee privileges to aliens that were undreamed of by its
That changes in our liquor laws are needed is admitted by all.
That those changes should be made to promote the good of the
people and at the same time protect vested rights and existing in
terests must be conceded by all fair minded men.
The legislature will doubtless deal intelligently with the subject
and not be swayed by those who have made a signal failure of
everything they have undertaken.
Last week assisant Post Master
and station agent, Frank Dillon of
Kahului was believed to be short in
his accounts and was discharge.
Just how his account stood in the
Post Office were not known but. the
Inspector was sent for and an invest!
gation it lti currently reported that
his accounts were short to the extent
of over four hundred dollars He
was arrested on a charge of embez
zlement of the sum of fifty four
dollars und forty cents from the Iva
hului Railroad Company.
When his Tost office was examined
the inspector asked him to go to Ho
nolulu with him which he did and in
case the report that he is short is
true he wiil probably be prosecuted
there before the U. 5. District Court
Dillon was a capable young man
and it is a mystery how iie got into
financial difficulties for he had a good
salary ami no one depending on him
and so far as known did not uatnb'c
nor was he addicted to drjr.k to anv
ItJs said he had borrowed con
siderable money from personal friends
here during the month, most of whom
are still out the amounts loaned.
