JAY O. WARNER
Superintendent of the Anti-Saloon League
Jay O. Warner, for the past three
years secretary of the Youfig Men's
Christian Association on Kauai, has
accepted the' secretaryship of the ter
ritorial Anti-Saloon league and is
leaving for Honolulu next Saturday to
assume his new duties.
Mr. 'Warner had been intending to
leave next month for the mainland
where he expected to return to tl.
ministry, bat the need for an earnest
and active worker in the cause of
prohibition in Hawaii is creat, and
when this call came for him he felt
it his duty to respond.
The Anti-Saloon League of Hono
lulu was organized in 1901 with a
Rev. Dr. Hartley of Los Angeles as
its first Superintendent, who was
succeeded by Rev. W. H. Rice.
In 1907, Hon. John G. Woolloy, who
has only recently retired from his
public activities in behalf cf the
cause of Prohibition, visited the is
lands and for three years worked
hard for a "dry" Hawaii. A plebis
cite was held in 1910 but the "wets"
won out by a largo majority.
In 1914 Dr. John W. Wadman be
came the superintendent of the
league, which was reorganized and
became The Anti-Saloon League of
Hawaii, with a territorial delegated
annual conference, the first of which
was held February 27th, in Kawaia
hao Church, Honolulu, attended by
300 delegates. The National Super
intendent of the League, Dr. Purley
A. Baker, was the honored guest and
the late W. A. Dowen, a veteran
temperance worker, the presiding of
ficer. About this time the League insti
tuted its campaign in the public
schools of the Territory and amoi'E
the young people. The watchword
of the movement was "alcohol is a
poison" and a Lincoln-Lee Legion
was organized, with total abstintnce
pledge cards, badges, and banners,
with a membership numbering thous
ands and branches in every settle
ment of the Islands.
In January, 1910, Dr. Wadman was
sent by the League to Washington,
D. C. to "lobby" for a dry Hawaii by
Federal enactment. He went armed j secured, and a program outlined. To
a member of the League, and Mr,
Geo. P. Castle, one of Its prominent
officers throughout its entire history
Dr. Wadman remained at the Capital
till June, 1918, pushing his campaign
against great odds, especially the op
position of the Delegate, though he
was subsequently won over to the
cause and became an active partici
Dr. Wadman co-operated with the
National Officers of the League and
took a prominent part in the big
drive for a "dry" nation in the pas
sage of the Eighteenth Constitutional
Amendment operative January 16
1920. He assisted also in the lobby
for a saloonless Capital, a "dry'
Alaska and Porto Rico.
April 10th, 191S, a Presidential or
der was issued making the Island of
Oahu "dry" for military reasons, and
a little later a war measure included
all the islands in the same area.
In the meantime, the so-called
Sheppard-Kuhio bill was pending in
both chambers of Congress.
needed hard work to press it through
At last the House of Representatives
after a fierce fight between the
"wets" and "drys", lasting nearly
three hours, passed the bill by a vote
of 237 to 30, the largest majority in
favor of any prohibition bill up
On May -Gth, 1918, the Senate ap
proved without a record vote, largely
because of the skilful tactics of Sen
ator Sheppard, and on May 25th the
President affixed his signature and
tlie law became effective in Hawaii

Recently there nas come an ur
gent demand from the public and
from the Federal authorities to re
