Woolley and The attempt of Jolin (i. Woolley, tl'i!ii'l attorney of
Prohibition, the Anti Saloon League, to get Congress to pass a jm
hiliition law for this territory is an insult to tin- electorate of Hawaii.
His course means that we are not competent to attend to our own
affairs so he u recent arrive from Chicago attempts to get laws passed for
The action of the legislature in Koing on recoril as opposed to the en
actment of a prohibition law lor Hawaii ly Congress was not so much a
question of voting on the cpiest'ion of prohibition as it was the matter or
voting against interference ly Congress in the management of our own
We have as near an Meal liquor law as is possible to enact. Mr. Woollen
says it is the best he ever saw and then makes a sneak for Washington
to get a prohibitory law enacteil for the territory.
We contend that if prohibition is to rule in Hawaii it must come from
our own legislature.
We are competent to govern our selves without the assistance of Mr.
Wool ley or any other paid lobbyist.
Mr. Wool ley lias dealt the prohibition caii.se the hardest blow it has
yet received. His scheme has ended his usefulness in the cause of tem
perance in Hawaii. He should have known that local self government
is dear to the hearts of practically every citizen of Hawaii nei and his at
tempt to ride over the heads of the people of Hawaii in getting a law
enacted to govern Hawaii cannot lie forgotten.
The Hawaiian Star says editorially:
"It is not fair to the people of this community for any citizen to go
to Washington and other Eastern centers, lobbying for passage of a law
applying to Hawaii, without consulting the people of Hawaii ami having
their authorization to represent them, (ieneral Wool Icy has no commis
sion to so represent the people of these islands. If a Prohibition law for
Hawaii is to lie passed, it should be passed here. The spectacle of one
citizen, a very recent newcomer at that, - attempting to settle the whole i
question for us in Washington, though it is a question of admitted great
difficulty to all, is an impertinence that is naturally resented. Of
course Mr. Wool ley may know more about Hawaii and what is good for
her than people who have lived here all their lives and studied hard over
laws and policies for the benefit of her people. lut the people of Hawaii
think they have shown pretty fair ability tit look after themselves and
Mr. Woolley, if he only knew it, is dealing a blow' at the cause he wants
The Hulletiiisays editorially:
"Of course the citizens of the Territory of Hawaii, except for a very
small prejudiced minority, do not want prohibition of the liquor traffic
in these islands. Hawaii lias been ami now stands for high license.
"The presence of John (!. Woolley In-fore the I'nited States Congress
contesting for prohibition in Hawaii is ail insult to the intelligence of the
citizens of the Territory and a distinct threat against the. privileges of
self government now enjoyed.
"Nothing under heaven but a political trick and a misrepresentation
of the delilieratc judgement of the overwhelming majority of American
citizens within the Territory can ever secure prohibition of the liquor
traffic in Hawaii by act of Congress.
"When this Territory wants or needs prohibition, the people of the
islands will send men to tin- Territorial Legislature to pfacc prohibition
laws on the Territorial statute books. -Anil the mere fact that Mr. Woolley,
as the paid agent of the local prohibition forces, has to go to Washington
and attempt to ride down the Territory's privileges to take can of itself
in this matter is proof that the eople of the islands are not with him,
prohibition is not wanted, and in order to gain even the appearance of
winning he must adopt methods that endanger the whole scheme of gov
ernment organization whereby I lawaii is given'a status as nearly approach
ing the independence of a State as can he secured under the Territorial
form of government in the I'nited States.
"Wool ley's only hope of success is that he call play upon the weak side
of sonic Congressmen who would vote for prohibition in Hawaii because
it might enable him to gain a few votes from the radical temperance
jxople of his home district by saying that he ha I cast a vote for prohi
bition. "Fortunately Congress is not made up of a majority of such men.
"Therefore the only interest Hawaii hasin the mission of Mr. Woolley
is that he shall not further misrepresent Hawaii, that he shall not in the
enthusiasm of his great prejudice jeopardize the right of the Territory, of
Hawaii to take care of its local affairs."
