Members of the Industrial Accident
Boards of the various islands are al
ready complaining about the unex
pectedly large amount of work they
have to do to set the new law in mo
tion. In all probability, however, the
greatest strain is over, and hence for
ward there will be easier sailing. The
members of all the Boards (and parti
cularly of Honolulu) will, however,
earn all the glory that they may be
able to get out of It. Garden Island.
Maui has decided against Sunday
"movies," the supervisors of that coun
ty having turned down an application
of George Freeland, of Lahaina, for
permission to give such entertain
ments Sunday evenings. The reason
given by the oupervlsois for their ac
tion was that no real public demand
exists for Sunday shows. The situa
tion on Kauai is much the same, and
the action of Maul on the question
may well be duplicated here. -Garden

Answered bv Facts
Secretary Case of License Board
Shows That Anti-Saloon Man had
No Ground to Back up Attack.
Following the attack of Dr. John W.
Wadman, superintendent of the Anti
Saloon League, upon the Maui board
of license commissioners, because the
board saw fit to permit the saloons of
Wailuku and Kahului to remain open
for three hours during tho forenoon
of July 3rd, D. H. Case, one of the
new members who was particularly
scored by Dr. Wadman's letter, made
reply to the accusations, in a letter
published in last Saturday's Star-Bulletin.
Mr. Case makes a strong case
for the board, and because of the very
general interest in the matter here on
Maui, his letter is reprinted in full
below. It follows:
SALOONISM ON MAUI THE
Wailuku, Maui, July 16, 1915.
Editor Honolu'.u Star-Bulletin,
Sir: In the issue of your valued
paper of date Thursday, July 13, un
der the head of "Letters' 'appears an
article entitled "Saloonism on Maui,"
signed by john W. Wadman. This ar
ticle contains some few truths; more
unfair and misleading statements
based on "reliable information" evi
dently obtained from persons plainly
lacking the moral courage to come
into the open and express themselves,
and very wil'.ing to make the writer
of said article the goat.
Rev. Mr. Wadman lays great em
phasis on the undue haste with which
the newly appointed members of the
local board of liquor commissioners or
ganized. He says "the new board,
with Messrs. Case, Kaae and Lyons
arranged well beforehand to
convene july 1, and, having organized
with Mr. Lyons as president and Mr.
Case as secretary, proceeded at once
to iconsider the motion of the former
board, and, after some discussion, re
scinded the action taken June 24, and
threw the day of the races wide open
In the morning after 9 a. m." I call
Mr. Wadman's attention to the fact
that, on the morning of July 1 there
existed no organized board of license
commissioners in the county of Maui.
Possibly he may not know that it is
not only a custom but the duty of
elective or appointive, members of any
body to promptly organize in order
that they may bo ready for business.
The facts are Mr. Lyons was made
permanent chairman of this body upon
motion of D. C. Lindsay, seconded by
C. D. Lufkin, both members of the
old board; and Mr. Case was made
permanent secretary upon motion of
Mr. Kaae, seconded by Mr. Lufkin.
Mr. Wadman recently declared to
the undersigned that in his opinion the
closing of all retail liquor nouses on
Maui would not materially lessen
drunkenness and its attendant evils.
Wherein then does he see so great
an offense in the modifying (not re
scinding) of the order of the former
Mr. Wadman also declared to the
undersigned that he doubted the wis
dom of any law or order preventing
treating in saloons and, in his opin
ion, the issuance of such an order on
Maui would not accomplish much
At this same hurry-up meeting of
July 1 a resolution was Introduced by
Mr. Kaae, favored by all of the new
commissioners whom Mr. Wadman
chooses to identify with the liquor in
terests, to the effect that from and
after August 1 there shall be no treat
ing upon any licensed premises within
he county of Maui where intoxicating
liquors are sold. This is undoubtedly
the backward step taken in temper
ance reform to which he refers as
having caused such humiliation in the
county of Maul.
These same commissioners so close
ly "identified with the liquor inter
ests' favor the closing of all liquor
houses on Memorial Day the day set
aside as sacred to the memory of
those who died for our country. In
the writer's opinion such action is of
far more importance to the general
public than the closing of the retail
saloons in the district of Wailuku for
a few hours on the 4th of July. "Con
sistency thou rt a jewel" but, to the
prejudiced mind or to the one seek
ing its own ends thou art an unknown
That Mr. Wadman may know the
opinion held for many years by the
man whom he chooses to style "a com
missioner with the reputation of a
temperance advocate" I will again
state that I do not feel that the former
board of license commissioners or any
other body has the moral right to bind
an incoming board to any given line
of action. While personally believing
that prohibition, rather than the regu
lation of the liquor traffic, will do
more towards minimizing its attend
ant evils, I take tho stand that this
is supposedly a free country where
every man has the right to his con
scientious opinion and liberty of
speech and action, and no one man,
or handful of men has the moral right
to bind, force or coerce his fellow-
For Instance, because Dr. Wadman
may not see wherein the closing of
the retail saloons or the enacting of
an anti-treating order can accomplish
much good, I would not go to the ex
tent of allying him with the liquor
Mr. Wadman is able to affirm on
good authority" (?) that "there was
more open drunkenness seen on Maui
July 3 last than on any other race
days for many a year. This was par
ticularly true among the Hawaiians
One need hardly ask who was Mr.
Wadman's informer since in the state
ment itself, "a wayfaring man though
a fool" can easily recognize the ear
marks. The sheriff of the county of Maui,
his deputy and lieutenant of police
state that July 3 last was as free from
drunkenness as any previous race day
and exceptionally free from disorder
ana that no arrests for drunkenness
or disorderly conduct were made.
I am privileged to use the names of
the following Maui citizens:
C. D. Lufkin who saya that the near
est approach to drunkenness which he
saw was one man whose gesticulations
and manner of speech indicated hav
ing imbibed a little too freely.
Editor Vetlesen of the Weekly
Times: "As a matter of fact never
before has such a quiet, orderly and
Bober crowd been seen at the race
track as this year and less di links
were seen in the streets than at any
previous celebration on Maui of the
.Rev. J. Charles Villiers: "I was
about the streets of Wailuku all of
July 3 and must say that I was im
pressed by the quietness and entire
absence of the evils that might nat
urally be expected to How from the
festivities of the' day. I saw no
W. F. Crockett: "As secretary nnd
treasurer of the Maul Racing Asso
ciation it is my duty to have general
oversight of affairs at the races. We
have never experienced a more order
ly day, nor one so free from drunk
enness. In former years considerable
liquor has been brought to the racing
grounds and doled out behind the
bleachers. Nothing of the kind occur
red this year and there was likewise
a noticeable absence of other evils."
Dan T. Carey of the executive com
mittee: "Maui has never experienced
a racing day so free from drunkenness
and disorderly conduct."
Editor Cooper of the Maui News:
"I was about town until 11 o'clock
and then attended the races. I saw
neither drunkenness nor disorderly
conduct in either place."
II. Gooding Field, one of the judges
at. the races: "It was an unusua'.ly
quiet day, with no evidence whatso
ever of drunkenness or disorder. I
remember remarking to my associates
that Honolulu might well take point
ers from Maui."
As regards Mr. Wadman's further
assertions I would say that, during
my residence of 19 years in the is
lands, 12 of which have been spent on
Maui, it has been my endeavor always
to give of my best whatever I had
to give for the good of the public and
I 3hall continue to so act according
to the dictates of my own sense of
what is right and wrong even though
It may not meet with the approval of
Mr. Wadman, his timid informers, or
any other self-constituted critic.
Mr. Wadman, you are engaged in
furthering a great and good cause,
that of temperance. You daily advo
cate temperance in the use of drink.
Would it not be wise for you to prac
tise temperance in the use of your
pen? Do not lessen your inlluence for
good by intolerance and narrow-mindedness.
Yours for fairness,
D. H. CASE.
