SATURDAY. MAY 16, 1908
The Liquor If those who are sincere in their desires to pro
Question, mote temperance and sobriety through out the
Territory would work for a practicable solution of the evils that
attend the liquor traffic instead of advocating measures that will
make the conditions worse than they have ever been much good
Prohibition of liquor to the Hawaiians was a law on our statute
books for many years and an effort was made to strictly enforce it
but those who were here during that period state that there was
greater drunkenness then among the Hawaiians thaa there has
The next step was to allow the Hawaiians to use liquor but the
number of licenses was so limited that it was impossible for many
to purchase liquor from licensed places and in consequence illegal
dealers not only sold but manufactured liquors which business
they followed until the Federal authorities stepped in and put a
ston to the manufacture but eranted Federal licenses to those
whom they knew to be selling in violation of the Territorial laws.
In order to stop the illegal selling Governor Carter got through
a law lowering the licenses in the outer localities but it was held
that the Treasurer was compelled to issue to the applicant a
license regardless of his character and in consequence many
licenses were issued to many of the lower class of Japs and China
men to whom a license should never have been issued and as this
was the case the law proved to be a failure.
The last session of the Legislature placed the liquor traffic prac
tically in th9 hands of a commission appointed by the Governor.
This law has proved to be the best yet on the subject for the
reason that it places the liquor business in the hands of men of
high standingln the community and has given them such discre
stionarv cowers that even those who might otherwise break the
law are held in check by fear of losing their licenses if they go be
yond the limits of decency in the conduct of their business.
Prohibition has not entirely prohibited in the most advanced
localities in the States. It would never prohibit in the Territory
while we have the class of population we now have.
Local ontion would tend to increase the number of saloons we
have and place it in the hands of a lower class of men and the evils
would be multiplied instead of being diminished.
It seems to us that the most sensible plan would be to appoint a
commission from the members of the commissioners from each
county and have them draft such amendments as they deem best
and submit the same for consideration by the next Legislature.
The nrespnt law with certain amendments could easily be made
ideal in theory and as near perfect in practice as is possible.
Reception was given
to Nr. and Mrs. Waltrip.
Rev. and Mrs. Theodore A. Wal
trip, who arrived from San Fran
cisco on the Nebraska n early Mon
day morning, were tendered a de
lightful reception on Wednesday
evening of this week at the home of
Mr. and Mrs. Ferinand lions of
The house was lx'autifully deco
rated for the occasion, and the
spacious double parlors were ad
mirably suited to such an event.
Hon. and Mrs. II. P. 'Baldwin, and
Mr. J. N. S. Williams received with
Mr. and Mrs. Waltrip. After the
large numlier of guests had all been
met, a very pleasant musical ' pro
gram was enjoyed. tlev. L.anon
Ault pleased the guests with a mini
lcr of choice selections, which were
much appreciated. Miss Foltz, ac
eompanied by Miss Mary Huff man,
delighted her audience as she always
does. One of her striking pieces
was me comical nine song in iiuu

singing of Auld Lang Syne closed a
very enjoyable evening.
What is hoped will prove to be the last act in the
judgeship contest took place Saturday when act
ins under instruetions of Attorney General Boneparte, Judge A
N. Kepoikai took the oath of office as Judge of the court of this
For months a fight has been going on against the re-appointment
of Kepoikai while the Judge and his Irion ds have left no stone un
turned to defeat his apponents.
This state of affairs has made deep wounds and both sides would
have been much better off if the contest could have been avoided
This community is too small to be divied agaisnt its self. There
is room for all and many more here and a tearing open of old
wounds has already been found to be both unpleasant and unpro
Those who opposed the Judges re-appointment did so for various
reasons. Unquestionably a great majority were conscientious in
their views and if the Judge is as sensible as his friends claim he
is he will profit by the criticisms of those who honestly exercised
their rights in expressing their views on the appointment of
If the Judge is as big hearted as even some of his opponents
claim he is he now has the opportunity of his life to prove it and
will let the dead past bury its dead. He will prove that be was
worthy of the strong support given him by showing that he is not
influenced by scheming politicians as was believed he was by some
who otherwise would have supported him in bis recent tight.
The News has taken no side in the contest but now makes the
above friendly suggestions with the hope that each side may profit
by them. (ljjL)0 n .. .
