OF THE COURT
Manifestly the aim and jutt-posc of prohibi
tion ia to prohibit, not to regulate or restrain
the manufacture and sale of liquor, but, to pre
vent the same. To this end the law provides
such penalties as are supposed to be prohibi
tive, leaving however to the court a liberal
range of discretion in the imposition of them.
The law provides that any person who
manufactures or sells liquor in violation of the
law shall be subject to a fine of not more than
.? 1.000, or imprisonment not to exceed six
mouths. Very much depends on the attitude
and outlook of the court as to what the punish
ment shall be. It may bi merely nominal in
which case the moonshiner pays the fine, ac
cepts it is a legitimate expense of the business
raises his price perhaps, and goes ahead again,
not taxed or discouraged in the least, but
harder to catch the next time.
Manifestly that kind of enforcement of the
law defeats the very, purpose of it. We want
prohibt ion. We want to stop the manufacture
and sale of liquor, not to raise the price, or in
crease the risks, but kill the business.
The effective way, manifestly, is to give the
moonshiner so strong a dose of the law that he
will never want another. For these disloyal
and criminal gentry we dout want a course of
treatment so gentle and considerate that it
will act as an appetizer or tonic, to stimulate
to fresh and larger violations of the law. We
want them to understand that the law means
business and that it is a "knock out" policy
from the word go.
(Jive them all the law will stand, for each
and every offense, and don't limit it to a fine
which can be paid out of the profits, but give
t hem a salutary dose of imprisonment.
We look to the courts for effective aid in
enforcing this very important law.
THE AXTISAU)() LEAGUE AGA1X
We note with satisfaction that the Anti
Saloon League has come to life again, with
fresh vitality and vigor, and will leave no stone
unturned to check the ilagrant violation of the
Ths is the line of success. The law will
rive opposition to it on the part of lawless and
unscrupulous interests and a good deal of in
not enforce itself. There is a good deal of ac
difference on the part of a great many more
who don't much care whether the law is en
forced or not. Keally loyal citizens, who be
lieve that laws are made to be enforced, and
who believe further that .litis is a very neces
sary and salutary law, must make a stand
against these lawless agencies of destruction
Our emphatic approval and our best hopes
for elliciency and success go with the Anti
Saloon League of Hawaii.
Si-ores of passengers were kept waiting

(ierniany loses no opportunity to demand
thai her burdens be lightened. First one thing
and then another is brought forward by her as
a basis for a demand for leniency or considera
tion upon which to base a claim for the reduc
tion of her indemnity or evasion of the terms of
the treaty. Now she wants a rebate of 21 5.000,
000 marks from the 7,000.000.000 marks to he
paid France, as her share of the indemnity,
fixed by the treaty, on account of improvements
on the French roads made by German prisoners
of war. It would appear that Germany had
an idea ihiit she won the war and was dictat
ing terms to the allies.
Maine is celebrating her 100th Birthday.
The festivities began on Monday and are to con
tinue for a week, in the city of Portland. In
other towns there will be interesting events
a'i through the summer. On March l.'ith, lOL'O.
Maine was oilicially set off from Massachusetts
and became a separate State. Kvery citizen of

let loose among the people.
Over in Europe people are busy, and the
busier they become the less time they have to
think about bolshevism ; hence, except in dis
tricts where they are actively engaged in kill
ing each other, that wave of insanity is recced
ing, even in Kussia, and will ultimately die a
natural death. France, Italy, Holland, Bel
gium, Spain, Germany and Czecho slovakia
have laid aside war for the labors of Peace,
and they are making good. They are producing
abundant crops, and within three nuniths will
have driven even the shadows of the wolf from
Italy has made a remarkable recovery, es
pecially in the l'iave district, where 5,000
square miles of territory were devastated and
:50 towns destroyed. Signa Nova, Minister of
State for the Liberated Provinces, reports that:
"A house has been built for every one destroy
ed in the rural districts. Many towns have
been re built and the railroads and public utili
Kussia blindly pursues her course, under
the whip of the national ring-master Lenine;
but the Utopian dream has become a nightmare
of horror, and the elysian lields pastures of dis
content, and the time is not far distant when
there will be an awakening that will put an end
to the hallucinathui, which is today compelling
rather than enticing. The iron hand of Lenine
and the work of his proselyting emissaries are
alone spreading bolshevism among iguorunt
people, while those sections of Kussia, where
the ruin has been greatest, and where the re
sources have been exhausted, are awakening
to their folly, and would get out from under
the yoke of the despotic dictator at the first
The' Czar of Kussia was a despot, who
never reached his people to realize their true
condition. His mind was cramped and warped
by his autocratic courtiers, his wife and favor
ites, and prejudiced by designing public ser
vants, who amassed wealth through criminal
practices that awakened the minds of the op
pressed people to a hatred for the royal aris
tocracy, that lived in luxury at the expense of
the ignorant and improverished people.
The Kussian government was bureaucratic,
impenetrable to the common people, and
fraught with a system of extortion that made
the lives of the Kussian people miserable; but
their misery, under the rule of the Czar, never
reached the desperate character of the present
condition, and the people, though ignorant,
possess suflicieut intelligence to understand
that the communist government, as administer
ed by Lenine and Trotsky, is anything but the
beautiful dream that it was represented to be.
Even Emma Goldman writes to her friends
in America that she is "homesick" and disgust
ed with the whole Kussian problem.
Poland, which for more than 100 years
bowed in submission to her opressors, is a com
ing power, although she is now engaged in a
senseless and bloody war with the bolshevists
of Kussia. Her people are industrious, patrio
tic and thrifty, and will yet discharge their
obligations to the world with credit to them
selves and honor to the nations that have been
instrumental in gaining their freedom and in
guaranteeing its permanency.
Another case of destructive and demorali
zing influences is to be found in the condition
of Austria and Hungary, and while they will
have abundant crops, they are sowing the seeds
of discord and civil strife.
Jingo Slavia, ami especially that portion of
it that was formerly Serbia, and which suffer
ed most from the war. is an example of fruga
lity and thrift. This season's crops will put
them outside the pale of distress, and start
them on the road to national prosperity.
In truth, many (tarts of Europe are laying
aside the uniforms and the engines of destruc
tion to take in hand the implements of peaceful
The report that 1,000 Turks were killed in
a bombardment of Ismid by British ships lying
at anchor in ihe harbor, before the town, indi
cates that the war in the near East is not yet
over; and the manner in which the Greek
troops are wiping up the country in the Smyr
na district indicates that it may be some time
yet before peace will be restored. In any
event the job should be so thoroughly lone that
the Turks will he smislied thai further resis
tance will be fuiile. and that her policy of mur
der, outrage and brutality must cease.

LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE
Editor Garden Island: "Resident's"
letter in your last issue anent the pro
posed switching of Makahuena and
Nawiliwili lights has come to my no
tice and I Just wonder, if "Resident"
knows, what he is talking about.
The white light placed on Kukli
point some years ago has always been
considered as a nuisance by seafaring
men; it is too bright and glaring and
interferes with proper navigation.
A small red light, as asked for by
Capt. Gregory in the first instance,
would be sufficient to guide a steam
er to its anchorage. The light was
placed there as a guide and not to illu
minate the sea and the workings of a
steamers boats and when the light is
confusing and interferes, Its useful
ness is at an end.
It is most likely the proposed change
is the answer of the Lighthouse In
spector to sincere prayers by seafar
I do not believe, as insinuated, the
Inspector or any other official would
favor any locality; their actions are
guided by expediency and not whims.
Thanking you for space allotted,

Editor Garden Island: McBryde's
protest is based on the explanatory
notes of Section 6 of Rule 56 by the
editor of "Spalding's Official Baseball
Guide" 1920, which permits a batter,
after making a long hit or a home run,
to sit on the tench and then resume
his journey to first without liabilty of
being put out if the ball in play has
not been held on first before ho reach'
es it. The play in dispute on Sunday
Jiowever, was totally different, as no
hit was made and the catcher had the
ball ready to throw to first after he
had dropped the third strike, but
Ishimura made no attempt to go to
first and wal':ed back to the bench
when Captain Henderson stopped him
halfway and made him go to first after
the umpire had yelled "batter's out.1
The rule cited above only applies
when no play is possible on the base-
runner, as the ball is being chased by
the outfielders, while the runner is
sitting on the bench before going to
first, but common sense would indi
cate thRt the runner in Sunday's game
at Eli ele had no chance whatsoever
to reach first before the ball.
