License The Liquor License llonrd met on Tuesday afternoon
Granted, of this week and passed upon the applications of a
number of individuals and corporations for licenses to dispense
The liquor problem has been m a most satisfactory condit ion on
Maui, since the present liquor law has been in force and it was
but natrual that all of the former liquor dealers should be given
renewals of their licenses which was done in every case except in
the case of one applicant from Molokai, whose license is held in
ahoyance for ten days until a report can be had from there as to
t he ni;.nner in which the licensee has conducted his business.
The Board took the same view of the News as given editorially
in our issue of last week in regard to the application of the Oki
nawa Liquor Company and refused that concern a license.
The Board put its official seal on certain restrictions on the
license of W. II. Field of the Maui Hotel, but as these restrictions
were practically what was asked for by Mr. Field it can hardly be
said that ho has lost anything or that he has been given less lati
tude than he desired.
The restrictions apply to the matter of closing the bar to the
general public at regular hours and all day on Sunday and to the
sale of liquor in quantities.
Rev. E. B. Turner sprung a surprise by being present and op
posing the issuance to three of the applicants. The application of
Mr. Field was one of those that were opposed. Mr. Field made a
plain statement of his side of the case and was given just what lie
The Board, we believe acted wisely. There is no occasion for
the enactment of prohibitory laws where licenses are granted only
those who will respect judicious laws. Our liquor law is a good
one. Let it remain but see that it is intelligently enforced.
Calhouns That the trial of Pat Calhoun resulted in failure was
Mistrial, probably no surprise to ninety per cent of the re
sidents of San Francisco but was just what was expected.
No part of the graft prosecution was ever begun for the purifi
cation of the political corruption of the city. It was a personal
matter between Calhoun and Spreckels and came about as a re
sult of Spreckels breaking faith with Calhoun and of the latter
snubbing Spreckels at a banquet.
This explains why hundreds of indictments were made and no
attempt at prosecution was made but this was used to lash the ac
cused into turning states evidence against the arch fiend the man
who had dared to publicly snub Spreckels. For this crime the
great arm of the law was used to smite Calhoun. City and county
funds was used lavishly and Spieckels himself put up $175,000 to
down his enemy and profit by his conviction.
It is no wonder that there was hardly a newspaper in all of San
Francisco outside of the one owned by Spreckels that would stand
for such dirty work.
To try Calhoun by a jury it was necessary to call two thousand
three hundred nnd ten San Franciscans. Of these, nine hundred
and ninety-eight were examined by the attorneys, eight hundred
and eighty-four were excused by the court, four hundred and
forty one were challenged, and thirteen were accepted for jury
duty. The official transcript of the court proceedings during the
one hundred and fifty days consumed in selecting the jury contains
five thousand nine hundred pages.
It is no wonder that ten of the jurymen were for acquittal and
only two for conviction. Those who know of the manipulations in
II. C. & S. and Oceanic S. S. Co. look askance when the name
Spreckels is heard.
A Jingo The strike leaders seem still to be able to deceive the
Appeal, poor ignorant laborers as ,to what may be expected
from the home government as a result of taking possesion of evi
dence of an incriminating nature. Neither Japan nor any other
nation will attempt to shield conspirators against the lives and pro
perty of the subjects of a friendly power and to do so in the case
of those who are accused of conspiring against the lives and pro
perty of other citizens pf her own government in violation of the
laws of the country in which they may reside is a most absurd pro
position. If the evidence secured from the.strike lenders is of an incrimi
nating nature they must take the consequences. Their attorney
will probably profit greatly by the fat fees he may gain from the
continued delays but the laborer will simply be bled for all that he
will stand and gain nothing. He had just as well make up hU
mind to that right now and if he is not satisfied with the oppor
tunities offered here he should return to Japan where he will get
The idiotic appeal of the Nippu Jiji to the home government to
intercede in behalf of the laborers and save them from slavery is
yellow journalism with a vengeance. Such articles are written
solely for the purpose of influencing the ignorant laborer and was
never intended to be taken seriously by a government that is con
ducted by such intelligent men as the officials of Japan are. .
The planters are able to carry on their plantations very satis
factorily without the strikers and the longer the working laborers
continue to support the idle labors the poorer the rest of the
laborers will be and the more subject they will be to the will of
the planters. They should see this and look out for themselves
instead of becoming impoverished by supporting a hopeless cause.

if not actual criminal acts on the
part of one Horace Kekumu and

of October last . On account of the
distance and inaccessibility of the
witnesses required in this investiga
