J. 0. Warner Says
Liquor Laws are
Enforced in States
FORMER LIHUE MAN WRITES
ABOUT PROHIBITION ON
The following extract from a let
ter from Rev. J. O. Warner, former
Kauai county Y. M. C. A. Bccro
tary and later agent ot tho Anti
Saloon Leaguo In Honolulu, will bo
Interesting to our readers:
Mr. Warner Is now taking a course
of study in Drew Theological Sem
inary and doing field work for the
Ant I Saloon League of New Jer
sey and New York on Sundays.
"Say, but how the folk lied to us
down there In Hawaii about lax en
forcement in the states! Don't you
believe it. Tho government is on
the Job. Ono hundred and twenty-
seven agents clean-up thrco big
eastern Pennsylvania cities in ono
forenoon, confiscating $10,000 worth
of booze; CO agents swoop down on
Atlantic City and close up evory
boozo Joint nnd drain tho resort dry;
CO recently raided a big distribut
ing center In tho shapo of a big
New York hotel, operated by a for
mer brewer and got quantities of
tho forbidden stuff. Last week they
dug thru two feet of solid concrete
in New York and found $700,000
worth of liquor stored completely
sealed up on all sides.
You can stand on top ot tho Bank
of Hawaii and shout to the people
of Hawaii for me if you want to
that I havo visited San Francisco,
Ogdon, Denver, Chicago, Dayton,
Columbus, Clevelend, Canton, Pitts
burgh, Philadelphia, Trenton, New
ark and New York tho past summer
and In all put together I have not
seen as many drunks as I saw on
a single Saturday night or Sunday
morning In Honolulu!
On different nights I havo walked
the strets of lower New York, on
the west side, indeed all the way
from G9th street down to tho piers
and I did not see a single drunken
person or any evidence of boozo at
all. I could scarcely believe my eyes
for I knew that section in pre
prohibition days I lived in it two
straight years; there was a Ealoon
on nearly every corner and the bar
tenders sprinkled boozo on tho saw
dust in front of their establishments
to attract the weak ones!
Of course, I am not saying they
are not drinking cocktails and high
balls and hootch in the cafes and
cabarets In New York for they are
but they are mighty quiet about It
compared with tho old days, and the
folk who arc doing It do not count
for much In our national affulrs any

Bids are Opened
for New Library
Building at Lihue
JACK HANSEN IS LOW BIDDER;
CONTRACT TO BE AWARDED
Bids wero opened last week for
the new A. S. Wilcox memorial li
brary by the board of trustees and
while the only other bid submitted
was by S. B. Goss, who bid $G7,500.
Jack Hansen was found to be the
low bidder, with a bid of $G2,500.
Tho contract was to havo been
awarded today, but owing to pres
sure of business, Hart Wood, the
architect was unable to come to
Kauai last night and tho meeting
of tho trustees was postponed un
til next Friday afternoon.
Tho new library building will be
built of Hawaiian stono something
on the lines of the Llhuo Memorial
Parish house. The entranco lanal
howover, will be butlt of concrete
and will bo finished off to resemble
cut stone. Tho roof of the building
will bo red tile.
The main room of tho library will
contain a reading room, a chil
dren's reading rqom, a delivery desk,
book stacks nnd a packing and ship
ping room. These rooms will bo
partitioned off by book stack-.), but
really will be one big room.
One of tho pleasant features of
the building will be the reading
lanal on tho rear of tho building. It
is planned also that this will bo
tho periodical room. Tho lanal will
be enclosed in glass with tilting
windows so that they can be open
ed or shut as necessity requires.
That tho Institution of tho li
brary on Kauai has been a success
can be seen from the fact that the
local library has the highest book
circulation in the islands.
