Prohibition in The Advertiser of January 1 It li has tlio follow-
Hawaii. ing editorial on t lie prohibition movement that
is so much to the point that we reprint tho same. '
We shall watch with interest the attempt, which Mr. Woolley
promises to make against the liquor license system in these islands.
Mr. Woolley is the leader in the American Prohibition v party and
is a very earnest and aggressive man. For many .years, lie has
kept the tight moving; he has seen the Prohibition banner rise and
fall and rise again and has always been hopeful and courageous in
gloomy times and a prophet of national triumph in the bright day
of local success. It is his nature to be sanguine and we are not
surprised that he should think Prohibition as feasible here as it is
in Alabama or Kentucky. v
Perhaps it is, though if the result depended hero as there upon
a popular vote, we should think differently. The aboriginal natives
and the balf-whites, constituting a large majority of the voting
element of Hawaii, would be hard to bring into line for prohibi
tion especially by a man who could not address them in the ver
nacular. Nearly half of them are Catholics and the church of Kome
does not teach total abstinence nor piacticeit, hence no hope of aid
from the priests. A very large number of natives are Mormons,
who are given wide latitude indeed, as respects personal liberty.
Neither class could be reached by an evangelical worker. The in
fluential German element believes in beer and the English and
American classes, while generally for temperance, number but a
small body to whom political prohibition appeals. To convert out
of this widespreading opposition a majority support for prohibition
measures would be a more diflicult task by far than the regenera
tion of southern States where white men see a stern domestic
necessity for keeping liquor away from negroes. It is possible
there to elect an anti-liquor legislature; but looking over Hawaiian
legislatures as they stand and the people who choose them, does it.
seem possible to elect such a body here?
Nevertheless the liquor line, as we suggest above, is not invul
nerable. It may be pierced, as was the Mormon polygamy line in
the Territory of Utah, by act of Congress. A Territory is a crea
ture.of Congress; it may be governed and regulated or changed in
its political guarantees or im munities, as the national legislature
may decide. Should Congress forbid the sale of liquor in Terri
tories, as it forbade plural marriages in them, and as it has forbid
den the sale of liquor to'Indians, then prohibition for Hawaii would
It may be a move like this which Mr. Woolley and his friends
contemplate and of the results of which they are sanguine. But it
can hardly be the conversion of an electorate such as these islands

we thought sized up the educational situation pretty correctly.
Now, five or six weeks afterwards, in answer to "Viator" ther.
appears a "roar" over the signature "Truth." This "howl" the
style of which betrays its authorship, is beneath any serious notice,
being composed solely of heated atmosphere, befogged with im
potent rage and malice, but wholly guiltless of either sense or

occasion for the expression of an opinion on an allied topic.
W. II. Babbitt, Superintendent of fublic Instruction, is display
ing uncommon vigor and ability as an executive. We vpry much
doubt whether any other department of the territory is more
efficiently administered, from a business standpoint, than is the
department of Education. As an organizer, Babbitt is making
record. Now, having the business of his otTice thoroughly syste
matized and in order, if he will but apply the same good sense and
sound judgment to the question of education, cutting loose from
"Truth" and others of that ilk, who have for years been a dead
weight upon educational progress, we predict that Babbitt will
prove himself as successful an educator as he has shown himself
to be an administrator. -
Swatted by Fist of Justice.
Honolulu, January 8. George Ke
kauoha, who was the central figure
in the "Mormon case'' in Judge Dole's
court recently, got a swat from the
, fist of justice this morning that
knocked him clear out of the ring.
George is now serving a four
months' sentence fcr adultery with
Amia Liiilii, one of the fair ones of
the Mormon colony at Laie. fie was
also under Indictment for having won
the love of Keleheua, a inurtieii wo
man of the same community, and yes
terday both George and the woman
plead guilty. They came up l.efare
Judge Dole this morning (or sentence,
and George got his good and hard.
Nine long months at hard labor was
the package handed out by the
The story of George's offense, as
briefly outlined by. Judge J) le in
passing seutence, is like the story
fiora the Old Testament about King
David and the method lie adopted to
get another man's wife. George
didn't exacfly send the man to the
fore-front of battle to be killed; but
he did send him where he would be
out of the way and unable to block
the wi'.fs of the erotic George. As
Keleheua, the husband of the woman
coveted by Kekauoha, was one of the
latter s suborJi.ialrs in tho road eh
parliiient, George found it an easv
matter to dispose of hiin.
When Kekauoha was asked by the
Court whether or not he had any
thing la say why sentence should not
be pronounced, he made a speech-
he never misses an opportunity to do
that in which he slated that with
great effort and by the sweat of ids
brow lie had accumulated a consider
able amount of properly on the oilier
side of the Island which, if kept, in
jail until after April, he would lose,
as he had pledgee! it to raise money
for I is defense. "When 1 married
my wife," he said. "1 was the best
oil of any of the llawaiians on that
bide of the I, land. a-k the Court
to l)e very lenient to me, and when I
get out of jail, promise lliat 1 rill
not commit the olT.-n-e uuv more."
Keleheua had little to say for her
self, merely' asking that her sentence
be us reasonable as possihlu.
"I am not disposed," said Judt
Dole, "to lie very lenient to you, Jv'e
kauoha, because of the very fact, that
you have amazed eotwalei able ro
perty, and that you are evidently
one ( f the most in I el lii'on of the Ml
waiians, a man of i i. tl ihmh-o and good
address. , Yt, with all thn', yen

a happy family - and destroyed tiie

of Keleheua, who ..told me what I
have beard In fore, that he was a
subordinate oT yours in the r.iad de
partment and that in order to enr-'.y
out your design you stanoiwd bun so
far away that lie could not aily re

"The sentence of the Court, con
sidering that you are already in jail,
is that you be imprisoned for nine
mouths, running simiiltatie.His'y with
your present sentence. As you sti:l
have about three mon l h to .-ervid,
this amounts to abi ut six tiioni' .'
"And, Keleheua, the law is always
lenii nt to warned in such cases. Ye'
you have '-iiinril toward your family
and allowed it to be broken' up and

of Kekai oha, or seriously disturbed

have been enough to deter you fi oin
