TUESDAY, MAY 2, 18H2.
The House mot at 10 o'clock yes
terday, according to adjournment
from Saturday, Hon. Sin. Bishop,
President pro ton., in the Chair.
The first business was the examina
tion of credentials of Hcprcsonta
tives, by n committee of the Nobles
chosen for that purpose. The certi
ficates of election were all found in
duo form, and the districts all re
presented on the floor of the House ;
with the exception of Llhue, on
Kauai, and Knannpali on Maui.
Hon. Mn. Kick, the member for
LilnnJ, was reported as detained by
the result of an accident; while at
Kaanapall no election had been held,
for the reason that the Attorney
General could find no warrant under
the law for appointing a Hoard of In
spectors for that district.
Nominations for ponnanent offi
cers were now in order. The House
proceeded to ballot, when tho follow
ing were declared elected :
Hon. Godkkey Riiodks, President.
Hon. L. Aholo, Vice-President.
E. A. Piekce, Secretary.
"W. L. Wilcox, Interpreter.
H. L. Sheldon, Translator.
Rev. M. Kuaka, Chaplain.
A. N. Tuii'i', Sorgcant-at-Arms.
J. D. Holt, Jit., Messenger.
Tho Assembly being thus organised,
the first actual business of the
Session, a matter of importance
that required dispatch was pushed
through. This was tho introduction
of a bill to provide for an election at
Knanapali, and to prevent that dis
trict from being unrepresented in
tho future. The mil, under a Bus-
pension of the rules, passed its
formal readings and will finally be
passed to-morrow to go Into effect
immediately. The House then ad
journed until to-mojrow at 10 o'clock.

Logio About Prohibition.
Mu. EutTon: Since the Planters'
Association passed a unanimous re
solution recommending the adoption
of n law to prohibit the manufacture,
importation, and sale of all intoxica
ting liquors, I hnve heard the matter
much and variously discussed at the
street comers and elsewhere. Iu
fact, Prohibition and Free Hum aj
penr to be the two principal topics
of thought and talk among the peo
ple natives and Foreigners alike.
As in all such questions, opinions
and wishes arc divided, some de
siring and pleading for free drink
and others voting for prohibition.
One class of anti-prohibitionists
argues thus : Prohibit a thing and
you create a desiro for its acquire
ment; remove the prohibition and
you destroy that desire. Let intoxi
cants bo abundant, cheap, and free
for all, then people will be sober
and temperate: let the uso of intoxi
cants bo prohibited, and people will
lie intemperate." Another class
argues that it is folly to enact a pro
hibitory law, for the reason that
such a law cannot bo enforced.
Say they, 'It might be for the
good of the country to bo without
iutoxicatiug liquors, but intoxicating
liquors cannot bo kept out: they
arc sure to be smuggled into the
country, ns well as manufactured
Now, Mr. Editor, I nm not dis
cussing tho desirability or otherwise
of a prohibitory measure, but deal
ing simply witli tho reasoning of
antl prohibitionists. I fancy that to
men of thought and retlcction tho
lines of argument above indicated
must appear fallacious and foolish,
weak and worthless in tho extreme.
Every law eithor enjoins tho per
formance of some specified duty or
forbids tho committal of some pro
scribed act. If the prohibition of
otiicr acts causes that act to be com
mitted, the prohibition of other nets
causes those acts to be committed.
If one luw is bad simply because it
is prohibitory, every other law that
prohibits is bad for tho same reason.
In other words, of the prohibition of
intoxicating liquors bo the means of
increasing drunkenness, the prohibi
tion of robl e.y, theft, murder, and
all other crimes, must conduce to
their increase. Then all prohibitory
laws arc not only useless, but posi
tively hurtful. The surest way to
lesson, u not entirely cure, every
ucBcriptu n of evil-doing is to abolish
all prohil itory laws, and allow men
full libei ty to do 'whatever they
please. If it is folly to enact laws
against th" uso of intoxicants be
cause it t icants will bo used in
spite of such laws, better abolish all
laws against every species of crime
because every species of crime con
tinues to exist in spite of those laws.
Tliis is reasoning after tiie manner
of tho antl-prohibltionists above
mcutinned. If their reasoning is
trnc, so in mine : if my reasoning is
false, bo is theirs. Consistency.
