The: opportunity will noon bo given
to demonstrate whether prohibition
really prohibits. That there will h
infra' liori of the law roes without
Haying. The powers that be have
been afraid of the golden calf. They
have fought John I'.arleycorn with a
m-are-l look hlid their hands on their
po I tbook. Now the matter has
reached the point where the govern
tnent has stepped in and says: "Thus
fir. but no further."

his brains away.
Men who hive not drawn a sober
breath for years will come home sober
with money in their pockets for the
wife and babies. The Saturday night
saturnalia which for centuries has
disgrved nearly every large city in
the I'nited States will be no more.
'1 be population of the jails will be de
creased, the bank deposits will be in
creased. We will all be happier, bet
ter, cleaner men. And the country
will be more prosperous.
The day dawns in tb" Mast, the
night of debauchery vanishes, and
diwns the day of hope. The star of
Iiethlehem still shines. Let us turn
our races toward Jerusalem, and away
from evil influences. I. el us look no
more upon the wine when it Is red;
when it. moveth itself aright within
the cup. l-'or at last it biteth like a
serpent, and stingeth like an adder.
The men at Washington engaged in
tin; management, of food conservation
should be men having special knowl
edge of bow food is produced, and at
bow great a cost. In a word, they
should be men who are experts in re
gard to the industries they are endeav
oring to control. Can men gather figs
from thistles, or grapes from thorns?
Some one over there-has recently
issued tin order that no more hens or
pullets shall be. killed or traded in.
Ths doe: not mean that poultry
now in cold storage cannot be sold,
but it does mean that no more hens
or pullets may be killed after the order
goes into effect.
l-'or a specimen of assanine orders,
this takes tin; cake.
It. will be seen that it places no
inhibition upon the killing of roosters.
The nat rural result of lhat will be
that their numbers will be rapidly
decimated. If that goes on very bin;;,
roosters will be non est, and the poul
try business will rapidly decline.
Of course, w should not kill the
hen that lays the golden egg, but
must everybody be allowwcd to live
but fat her?
Russia was comparatively safe as
long as she continued to be faithful to
the Allies. Now lhat she lias de
serted her best friends, and has
threatened to repudiate her public
debt, she hasn't a friend among the
nations of tin- earth. Cermany has
been pretending th it she was friendly,
but Russia le:.rned. wlc-ii it was too

J '.pan has wanted Siberia for many
years. Kverybody acquainted with In-
I ternational affairs has been aware
of that. Japan's course In the pro
posed seizure of Siberia, however, has
been very honorable. She has con
sulted with the Allies ns to her course,
and they have given Japan a free hand.
This would never have happened had
Russia been honorable in her dealings
with the Allies.
At this distance, it looks like Japan
is thereby given an undue advantage,
as she will beyond a doubt lie allowed
to i -I ,i I ii utahever territory she may
lie aide to capture there. She will
also dominate Manchuria.
That will materially strengthen the
hands of Japan. However. America,
!t b-. ;!. h a no colonial policy, and
';ii'cr ; 11 onllnary cin -.iinstaiices, will
not la lain c.iptuicd territory. If
(here is no other Power of the i-a-:enle
which cares to assume the bur
den of pi'e.enting Russia from asstim
'ng greater control in Asia. Japan will
be allov.ed to have her way.

Japan is se-'-uriir; far greater advan

'Inn she is through actual warfare!.
She hasn't shot a gun. except to take
Tsang Tail, but she has thrown some
diplomatic boiujis which have given
her a dear road to her ambitions.
Very acule, is Japan. America taught
diplomacy, in the litsl place, and she
is beating us at our own game.
William Kikepe of Honolulu has
never been able to understand why
the I'nite-d States should demand a
license for the selling of liquor. He
has not been alone In that matter,
for many persons have wondered why
any licenses for the salt! of liquor
should be issued. However, Kikepe
knew that the- government demanded
a license, hut he was persistent in
his desire to be a free trader, and
was duly arreslod and lined. He did
it the second time, and indeed, went
i-i-'bt on selling, whel her courts inter
fered or not. lb- committed the
offense ux the ninth time, last week,
and was lined $fiim. He says he will
quit, now. It is a wise man who
