a vote for prohibition was a vote for
the home and the family as against
influences which break up the homo.
He had taken the stand in favor of
prohibition with his whole heart and
strength, and asked the women and
children to exert their influence on
the men to vote for prohibition
.Mr. Win. White followed with re
marks relative to the issues before

Rev. E. B. Turner spoke of hero
ism. He was in New York when
the Windsor Hotel took fire, and
saw people jumping down to their
deaths from the tenth story win

from door to door warning people
of the danger. Ho stuSk to his post

In sentencing tho prisoner, after
tho plebiscite had settled the public
view on tho liquor issues Wednesday
last Judge Burchard oxprossed him
self in the following terms:
This defendant had plead guilty
to a charge made in this Court of
having sold intoxicating liquors
without a license in common par
lance, of having conducted a V blind
Tho defendant is old and blind,
and yet it appears from the evidence
taken that ho has been quito an ex
tensive dealer in tho forbidden
merchandise. I believe from all
the facts that he is trying to shield
others more guilty than himself, yet
ho persists in denying that ho is so
doing. Ordinarily a man in his
condition would apieal strongly t&
one's sympathies, yet it is shown
by tho evidence that he'lfas been a
persistent dealer; he has carefully
prepared a plan and actively en
gaged in disregarding this-wholesome
law, and by reason thereof all
thoso sentiments that arc a shield to
tho helpless and unfoitvnato do not
I cannot find words too stroug to
condemn tho crime charged against
this man. In fact, the Legislature
has provided strong penalties to be
administered in such cases as the
one beforo us ; wo have laws regu
lating ;he Bale of intoxicating li
quors which provido limitations as
to days of sale, as to persons to
whom liquors may bo sold, as to
the character of liquors to be sold,
and many other wholcsomo provi
sions intended to guard tho public
against imposition and fraud.
To men engaged in similar busi
ness as that to which this defendant
has plead guilty, they know no law
of society or decency; for mero
avarice and gain they will sell any
compound however .injurious to the
physical, mental and moral nature
of their victims; as they do not pay
a license and are not subject to any
limitations they become unjust com
petitors of those who obey the law
in order to conduct their business;
they become a menaneo to society
at largo by producing the worst form
of debauchers, and thereby their
injury is far greater to society than
that of the criminal who, led by im
pulse and emotion, or tho sudden
riso of passion may commit an act
violating tho law. Theso pestilen
tial spots breed crime, dethrono
reason, blunt tho intelligence, ruin
homes, make widows and orphans,
and brutalize their victims. I need
not draw the picture of their villain
ous influence, upon tho public at
largo; they produce calamities that
cannot bo measured in words; thoy
worse than destroy human existence
itself. They must and shall be
suppressed, and fio ollicer or citizen

Wailuku's Water System
Could Not Stomach It.
Sunday last District Overseer Bal
installed a big water meter along
side tho road and a little below the
reservoir, for the purpose of mea
suring the amount of . water drawn
daily from the Government reser
voir. The work was begun early Sun
day morning and by three o'clock in
,tjo afternoon when tho flood gate
tl opened the big meter was at
work registering a flow of 18,000
gallons of waterman hour. Monday

Finding that tho meter was re-'
tarding the flow of water more than
was expected, District Overseer Bal
had it disconnected, and now every
thing is running as smoothly as it
was before the water meter idea was
over thought of.
Fatal Accident on a
Portable Railroad Track.
Saturday forenoon of July' 23rd,
Sayahara, a Japancso of the ago of
47 years, was working in tho cano

Waikapu. He was tending to some
cars on a portable track loaded with
seed cane and while riding in front
of one car tending to the brakes, his

of the car which was moving on a
