WHY THE DIFFERENCE?
Tho board of liquor llrpnap commis
sioners should bp commended for its
careful Investigation of the charges
made against the saloon-keeper
Thompson, also for Its verdict., but
NOT for Its sentence. There appears
to be no cood and sufficient reason
why Thompson should have been plven
the privilege of selling out his joint
and making a profit on his license. It
is questionable if his fixtures and
stork in trade would invoice a great
deal over $1,000, yet he is permitted
to dispose of the business to the tune
of $8,000, of which amount $7,000 la
clearly the price paid for the license.
Comparisons are usually odious, but
frequently necessary. The case of
saloon-keeper Marlowe Is still fresh In
the minds of the public, and the board
was highly commended for cancelling
that, gentleman's license. Now the
public is rather inclined to sympathize
with Marlowe, in the light of the
Thompson decision. Marlowe was
thrown out, baK and baggage, for hav
ing made "false statements" to the
board. The board abhors a liar.
Thompson was convicted of sell'ng
"slops" and of doctoring bis booze,
but he is allowed to peddle his license
to do business.
There appears but little justice in a
comparison of these two cases and
Honolulu would have been none the
worse off had the Thompson license
been revoked permanently. There are
sufficient saloons tn town as matters
stand, and an easy way to eliminate
the drink evil would be to cancel
licenses whenever the opportunity
presents itself, and to issue no new
ones. The New Freedom.
THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION
The election last Tuesday on the
mainland was abundant In surprises.
It was a surprise, for instance, that
Wilson failed to carry his own State.
It. was a surprise that Hughes carried
New York by a small a majority. It
was a surprise that Maine switched in
a month from the Republican to the
Democratic column. It was a surprise
that Oh'o went Democratic and that
Indiana went Republican. It was a
surprise that Utah went Democratic
and so on and so on.
It was truly a remarkable election.
That the labor vote went to Wilson
is doubtful. Indications are that such
was not the case, for the reason that
such labor strongholds as New York,
New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Illinois
voted for Hughes. The main factors
'n the success of Mr. Wilson were the
slogan "He has kept us out. of war"
and women. There seems a doubt
hut that the vote of the Rentier sex
in " the equal suffrage States went
strongly for the President.
The election was unusual In another
particular. Not in many years have
two men of such marked capabilities
been pitted against each other in a
presidential contest. It has usually
been the case that one strong and one
doubtful man appeared in the field;
but this time the competitors were
easily the strongest men In their re
spective parties, measured by any or
every standard. '
Mr. Hughes may be defeated, but
the indications are that he will yet be
president. Barring untoward happen
ing, he will In all human probability
be the Republican candidate for presi
dent four years from now and he will
win. He Is practically four years
younger than Mr. Wilson, so that at
the time of the next election he will
be about the same age as Wilson now
It Is worthy of note here that most
of the best sugar States supported
Wilson. It is supposable that that
may prove an additional nail in the
coffin of free sugar. If so we will have
a substantial measure of consolation
for the disappointment this Republ
ican community may feel over tho gen
eral results. Garden Island.
ONE EXPLANATORY THOUGHT
Every political observer has his
own explanation of Mr. Hughes' de
feat and there will be excuses, com
ments and "alibis" from now until
historians cease writing, but here is
one guess at the reason which we be
lieve not far wrong:
Hughes' first stumping-tour of the
west and the Pacific Coast.
In more than one state it was a
failure. In Washington and in Cali
fornia he went into states torn with
party factionalism, with the Progres
sives ostensibly coming into camp but
in reality as obstreperous as ever.
Hughes was advised and took the
advice to "play safe." As often hap
pens when a man takes the middle of
the road, his course was colorli'ss. lie
failed to make an impression of daunt-
: less strength and the brimming ilo
I ments of leadership.
I Washington helped to beat Hughes
' and California finished the job with
! neatness and despatch. Had he stay
ed out of these states on his first tour,
he could probably have carried both.
With the house nearly evenly divid
ed between Republican and Demo
crats, it is probable that the balance
' of power will be held by a group of
j Tammany Democrats headed by Filz
Herald of New York, who will again be
chairman of the appropriation com
mittee. Tammany Democrats have no
i love for the president, but he will have
to have their support to win against
the strong Republican minority. It is
obvious that the south will not control
Congress during the next two years.
