77: WAIUEA DISTRICT VOL'ltT
Petitions an bring circulated to have
Judge Ilofgaard of Hie district court of Wai
mea, reappointed by the supreme court. A
rouuter petition is being eiivulated to ap
point II. M. Nawai to the position, Hie claim
Ix-ing made that be is a Ha waiian, ami
therefore should' be shown a preference for
The Garden Island belieuvt that the 11a
waiians should be shown the preference but
not to such a degree that it interferes with
the efficiency of the courts.
Judge Hol'gaard has served as judge in
Ihe Wainiea district for the past eighteen
years and during that time las earned the
distinction in legal circles of being the best
district judge on Kauai. According to Ihe
information received by the (iarden Island,
Mr. Nawai has never practiced law and has
just lately passed his bar examination.
It is hard to see where, the qualifications
of the two men are on an equal basis, and
it is the opinion of the (iarden Island that
there has been a tendency to make a farce
of the court procedure in some of the dis
trict courts, and the best insurance against
this in the Waituea district is to reappoint
Judge Hofgaard to the position.
WHERE WAS THE TRAFFIC COP?
Fully fifty per cent of the cars that
turned the Lihue Store corner after the ball
game last Sunday did so on the wrong side
of the silent policeman. There should be a traf
fic officer placed at this corner on such oc
casions until the people learn what is ex
pected of them at this place.
IT IS TIME TO ACT
It is now time for government interven
tion in the coal situation. It is time to de
clare whether this government is to be ruled
by the unions or whether each and every
American citizen shall have a right to labor
and provide for his family under the protec
tion of laws that are made for the benefit
of all men, regardless of color, religion, or
labor organizations. Labor unions may be
beneficial in a degree but when it conies to
depriving non-union men of the right to la
bor and provide for themselves and their
families, killing and maiming them on the
way to work, and peaceful occupation, it
seems it is high time the government of the
states and the nation interferred with the
unrighteous program of unionism and make
it safe for any man to act and labor as be
pleases and for whom he pleases so long as
he commits no unlawful act. It is not a
question of protecting the mine operators and
profiteers, but it is a question of human lib
erty. It is a question of whether or no the
United States of America is to lose her
freedom and be subjected to the caprice of
labor organizations, capitalistic organiza
tions or any other organization not in ac
cord with law and order and the individual
rights of man.
The way the politicians are throwing
their hats into the ring they don't seem to
care what happens to hats.
Some men are judged by the company
they keep ami others by the kind of printed
matter they use.

We don't care how short the women wear
their skirts, but we can lick the fellow who
decreed that man should not eat in his shirt
Too many men seem to think that the
tree of liberty is a good place for them to
feather their own nest.
We agree with the Lihue man who de
clared in our presence yesterday that the worst
tiling about money is there isn't enough of it.
''What will become of the young people?"

grow old and worry about the young people

U7.17' DRY AXn WET FACTS REALLY
U is not fair, nor is it reasonable, to
maintain that prohibition in the United
States has bad a fair test, in the somewhat
more than two years that have elapsed since
the Eighteenth Amendment to the Constitu
tion became operative. On this point it is
not necessary to lake the opinion of anyone
not competent to judge, for a statement
made by William Howard Tail, formerly
president of the United States and at present
its chief justice, will carry weight with ev
eryone. Mr. Tuft, who is we'll known as an
opponent of prohibition, stated in a syndi
cated special editorial article written a short
while after the Eighteenth Amendment was
ratified, that it would be ten years before
anyone could pass judgment on whether pro
hibition was proving a success or a failure
in America. Taking Mr. Taft's statement as
authoritative, it is obvious that, when oppon
ents of prohibition assert that the movement
has proved a failure, they have some motive
back of their contention other than the es
tablishment of a right conception of the
state of affairs in America today.
As a matter of fact tabulated statistics
of arrests in twenty-five typical American
cities for the two years prior to the insti
tution of prohibition from a national stand
point and for two years thereafter, tell a
story that is its own proof. These statistics
show that whereas during 1917 and 1!)18,
out of a population of somewhat over 4,000,
000, there were almost 1,250,000 arrest from
all causes and somewhat more than 400,000
arrests for intoxication, during the years 1020
and 1021 there were only a few more than
1,000,000 arrests from all causes and less than
250,000 arrests for intoxication. These facts
are outstanding and can be verified by any
one who is minded to seek the proof. They
show that although there is much yet to be
done, much has already been accomplished
with the promise of still more good to come.
Law breaking in connection with the li
quor traffic is not a lately introduced inno
vation. In 1S05, David A. Wells, commission
er of internal revenue said in a public address
that by statistical reports it had been proved
that, while ((,000,000 barrels of beer were
brewed annually, only about 2,500,000 bar
rels paid the taxes thereon that were due.
This is not very different from the findings
today that of some 500 breweries having per
mits to make near beer, about 250 have been
found making stronger beer than is legiti
mate. It is easy to pick out isolated facts and
draw therefrom conclusions to suit the in
dividual fancy, and it is an old proverb that
says there are none so blind as those who
will not see. It must be remembered that
when liquor selling was the rule and was al
lowed ' by law, ,it was expected that men
would drink, and drunkenness was not a sur
prise. The enactment of prohibition raised
the standard of thought and action of the
American people so that the whole subject
is being judged from a different standpoint.'
There is a clamor against what was once ac
cepted as unavoidable, and this of itself in
dicates that there is a great moral revolution
in progress. To see its full benefits a suffi
ciency of lime must be granted. From The
Christian Science Monitor.
