Interviewied by an Advertiser
mai, yesterday, Wallach said as
"Well, I'm shut of all my
troubles now, and I'm mighty glad
of it. High Sheriff Henry told me
that he had seen the Attorney
General and that the latter had
said that he would not proceed
against me on the other charges of
practising medicine without a
-license if I showed evidence of
wanting to become a good citizen.
"The High Sheriff treated me
fine, and I was, in a way, sorry to
leave him. The officers at the jail
also were kind to me and I have
no kick coming. I worked two
weeks with the gang at Waikiki,
but was taken sick, and the last
three months I had no hard work
to do. I gained thirty pounds
uliile in jail.
rill positively leave medicine
alone as long as it is against the
law to practise.
"I am through with the Atcher
leys, because my connection with
them did me moreharm than good.
"I intend to have nothing to do
with politics, and will not allow
my name to be mentioned in that
connection. As soon as I got out
of prison, politicians from two of
the parties came to me and said
that I would be all right and that
I needn't worry if I'd only promise
them that I wouldn't leave the
"I said to these people, 'You
mind your business and I'll mind

Works as soon as there is an open

my trade and will be glad to get to
"I have seen my mistakes and
will make no more trouble, but will
try to be a good citizen."
Wallach received many con
gratulations!) his liberty yester
day. The first thing that he did after
his release was to buy $15 worth of
fruit, cigars and tobacco for his late
friendB in misfortune on the reef.
Before ho came out he asked the
prisoners what they wanted, and
the list he made contained a large
variety of items ranging from man
goes to hairpins.
THE CANNY WOOEU.
It was fair timo in Selkirk, and
Sandy and his sweetheart were
wandering around arm in arm en
joying the sight?. Presently they
espied a smart-looking pie. shop,
which they promptly entered. San
dy ordered one pie, sat down and
commenced to eat it. Meanwhile
the girl looked shyly on.
"Is't fine, Sandy?" she timidly
"Ay, 'tis awful fine, Jennie," he
answered. "Ye should buy one."
A QUESTION OF COST.
Two little sisters of seven and
nine wno were taken to see
'"Othello," were much impressed
by the death scene. "I wonder
whether they, kill a lady every
night?" said Lucy.
"Why, of course not, Lucy,'
said her sister; "they just pretend
to. It would be altogether too ex
pensive to really kill a lady every
night." "Harper's Magazine."
Hawaii Japanese Won
M. Mochihata. a Japanese cane
planter, of Kallmann, Hawaii, has
been notified that lie has drawn the
ten thousand-dollar prize given by
the San Francisco Examiner to one
of its subscriber". lie has been
notified of the c-iiniim oT the money,
but r fuses to believe that there is
that much money In the world until
he sees it piled up in front of him
and can handle it. Not that Mo-
hirata is a poor man, fey the
Scriptural maxim that to him that
hath shall be given is proved in
this case. He has over two thous
and dollars saved up from the re
sults of his labor already, and the
prize monev will make him a
Mochihata is one of the three or
four hundred Japanese, who take
the Examiner regularly, although
unable to read a word of English,
subscribing for that intellectual
journal on the same basis that they
buy che-fa tickets. So little dees
the winner of the premier prize
know of English that he carried
the letter of notification around
with him for 'several days before
he could get it translated, and it
was several days more before he
grasped the idea conveyed.
Honolulu, July 3. Territorial
Treasurer; Campbell has referred to
Attorney General Hemenway the
question of whether he can issue a
hack driver's license on the certi
ficate of the High Sheriff of the
competency of the applicant as a
driver, and of tlu soundness of
horse, hack and harness. The ques
tion has arisen in the case of Joe
Lucca. He applied to Sheriff Iau-
kea for the certificate as to com
petency as a driver and the sound
ness of horse, hack and harness
which is required before a license
can be issued. Sheriff Iaukea re
fused on grounds other than those
of competency. Lucca then applied
to the High Sheriff', who, after mak
ing the necessary examination, . is
sued the certificate, and this was
presented to the' Treasurei and a
license applied for.
In 1904, Takichi Sakata and
three other Japanese hackmen were
refused certificates of this kind on
the ground that hey did not speak
or understand the English language
well enough to be hackmen. Tbey
sought to compel the issuance of
certificates by mandamus, and the
Supreme Court, Governo Frear
then being Chief Ju-tiee, decided
that they were entitled to the cer
tificates, the question of 'heir un
derstanding of the English langu
age having nothing to do with the
Sheriff Iaukea expressed the
opinion that the High Sheriff was
butting in by issuing those certifi
cates when it has been customary
for them to all come through the
County Sheriff, and Iaukea refused
the certificate on grounds which he
thought ought to commend them
selves. High Sheriff Henry, how
ever, says the law makes it man
datory on him to issue such a cer
tificate when it is applied for and
the applicant is a competent driver.

Honolulu, June 27. An amus
ing incident of the rcreption to
Secretary Garfield Inst week at the
Young Hotel is going the rounds
and told by an eyewitness, it is is
follows: The Secretary was receiv
ing thp attentions of the multitudes,
each individual of the crowd appar
ently having been intimately ac
quainted with either the father or
mother of the guest of honor. This
lasted for quite awhile and was re
marked upon by one who had over
heard the word.-" of some of those
who had shaken hands with Mr.
One townie who wanted to be
different from the rest of his fellows
Qi shaking hands with the distin
guished visitor said, 1 knew your
grandfather." "Which one?'' en
quired the Secretary, quick as a
(lash, and then the ush;r slipped
in and led the stuttering and
noplused citizen out into the air.
"Keep Up Fight," '
Mr. Spreckels. Now
and then you and Mr. Ileney and
the others who are associated with
you must feel downhearted when
you see men guilty of atroeiom
crimes who for some cause or other
succeed in escaping punishment,
and especially when you see men
of wealth, of high business and, in
a sense, of high social standing,
banded together against you.
My dear sir, I want you to feel
that your experience is simply the
experience of all of us who are en
gaged in this fight. There is no
form of slander and wicked false
hood which w ill not as a matter of
course be employed against all
men engaged in such a struggle,
and ihis not only on the part of
men and papers representing the
lowest type of demagogy, but, I am
sorry to say, also on the part of
men and papers representing the
interests that call themselves pro
minently conservative, preemi
In such a struggle it is too often
true that the feeling those engaged
in it becomes peculiarly bitter, not
merely in the business houses of
the great financiers who directly
profit by the wrongdoing, but also
in- the clubs, in certain newspaper
offices where business interests ex
ercise an unhtalthly control and,
I regret to add, in other newspaper
offices' which like. to be considered
as in a marked degree the repre
sentatives of the cultivation and
high social standingof the country.
Now, I do hope that you and
your colleagues will treat all this
bitterness with entire disregard. It
is of small consequenee to you, or
to any of us who are engaged in
this work, whether men think well
or ill of us personally; but it is of
very great consequence that we
should do the work without flinch
ing, on the one hand, anil, on the
other hand, without losinsi our
good humored common sense, with
out becoming angered and 'iritated
to a degree that will in any way
cause us to lose our head.
Therefore, I hope that you and
Ileney and your associates will
keep reasonably good natured; but
but that above all things you will
not lose heart. You must battle
on valiantly, no matter what the
oiigest businessmen may say, no
matter wnat tne moo may. say, no
matter what may be used by that
element which may be regarded as
socially the highest element. You
must steadfastly oppose those
foolish or wicked men who would
substitute class consciousness and
loyalty to class interest for loyalty
to American citizenship as a wholej
for loyalty to the immutable laws
of righteousness, of just and fair
dealing as between man and man
It is just as bad to bo ruled by a
plutocracy as by a mob. It is pro
foundly un-American and, in t!
social sense, profoundly immoral,
to stand for or against a given
man, not because he is or is not a
brave, upright and able man, but
because he does or does not belong
to a labor union or does or does
mt represent the big business in
terets In their "essence, down at
the foundation of things, the ties
that are all important are those
that knit honest men, brave men,
square dealing men, together, and
it is a mighty poor substitute if we
replace these ties by those that
bind men together, whether they
are good or bad, simply been use
they follow a particular business,
have a given social standing or be
long to a parti rular organization.
It is an evil and a dreadful thing
for laboring men to endeavor to
secure the political dominance of
labor unions to conniving at crook
edness or violence, by being "loyal"'
to crooked labor leaders, for to be
"loyal" to the fancied interests of
the unions when they are against
the laws of morality and the in
terests of the whole people means
ultimately. the destruction of the
unions themselves, as an incident
to the destruction of all good citi
zenship. But u is, if anything, an even
more evil and dreadful thing to
have the merchants, the business
men, the captains of industry ac
cessories to crime and shielders
anil suppoiters of criminals; it is
an even more dreadful thing to see
the power of men high in State
politics, high in finance, high in
the social life of the rich and
fashionable, united to stifle the
prosecution of offenders against
civic integrity if these offenders
happen to be their friends and as
sociates; and most evil of all is it
when we see crooks of a labor party
in offensive and defensive alliance
with the crooks of a corporation
party. Labor unions and corpora
tions alike should be heartily slip
ported when they do good work,
and fearlessly opposed when they
stand for what is evil. The best
kind of wage-worker, the best kind
of laboring man. must stand
shoulder to shoulder with the best
kind of professional man, with th -best
kind of businessman, in putt
ing a stop to the undermining of
civic decency, and this without any
regard to whether it is a labor
union or a corporation which is
undermining it. without any ro
gard.to whether the offender is a
rich man or a poor man.
Indeed, if there can be any de
grees in the contemptuous ab
horrence with which right thinking
citizens should regard corruption,
it must be felt in its most extreme
form for the socalled "best , citi
zens," the men high in business
and social life, who by backing up
or by preventing the punishment
of wealthy criminals set the seal
of their approval on crime and give
honor to rich felons. The most
powerful ally of lawlessness and
mob violence is the man, whoever
he may be, politician or business
man, judge or lawyer, capitalist or
editor, who in any way or shape
works-so as to shield wealthy and
powerful wrongdoers from the con
sequences of th"ir misconduct.
You have heart-breaking dilli-
culties with which to contend. You
have to fight not only the handed
powers of evil, but, alas, that it
should be said, the supineness and
indifference of many good men on
whose zealous support you had a
right to feel that you could rely.
Do not be discouraged; do not
flinch. You are in a light for
plain decency, for the plain demo
cracy of the plain people, who be
lieve in honesty and in fair deal
ing as between man and man. Do
not become disheartened. Keep
up the fight.
Very sincerely yours,
