"WEDNESDAY, MAY , 1882.
The one subject which is just nt
tins moment the topic of discussion
in public ami private, throughout the
length ami breadth of these Islands,
in the pioposcd legislation prohibit
ing the importation, manufacture
and sale of nil alcoholic beverages.
Copies of a printed petition, in both
languages, have been sent into every
distiict, and probably not a house or
n hut, from one end of the group to
the other, but will bo visited by
ze.dous canvassers for signatures.
As none of the other journals of this
city have printed this petition, we
hereby put it on record in the
columns of the Bulletin :
TO THE HOKOKAIU.C TUB LEGISLATIVE
AsSKMBl.Y OK T11K HAWAIIAN IS
The Undersigned, Residents of
the Kingdom, Respectfully represent
that the consumption of Spirituous
Liquors has of lato alarmingly
inci eased; that tuts increase has
been craater than the growth of the
population for the same period ; that
in consequence tnereor vagrancy,
crime, and disorder have multiplied,
iucicasing the burden of taxation
and endangering tho peace of tho
Community; that tho morals of tho
youth aic corrupted, ami that usciui
lives are theicby destioyed; that ex
perience has shown that in this coun
try there are especial difficulties in
executing tho laws intended to rc-
stiaiuthe sale and use of intoxicating
liquors, while other laws allow such
liquors to be imported without limit ;
that thinking men all over the civilized
world arc rapidly adopting the
opinion that the use 01 intoxicating
drinks by any one is wasteful and
injurious, aud oujiht no longer to
have the sanction of law; and that
the present moment is favorable
opportunity for tho Hawaiian King
dom to taku an advanced position on
this subject among the sisterhood of
nations. Your petitioners therefore
pray, in behalf pf themselves and
lor the good of all who dwell in
these Islands, tha a law, applying
equally to all classes, maybe enacted
prohibiting the importation as well
as the manufacture und sale of all
That buch a law as is hero pro
posed, if thoroughly executed, would
ie a blessing to the country, both
morally and materially, no ono will
probably deny. But there are many
things to be said by botli xides of the
controversy, and which will doubt
less be often recapitulated in the
discussions that will come up in the
Assembly. We may expect a decid
ed sensation when the monster peti
tion shall be rolled into the House ;
and we shall look about with con
siderable interest for tho member
who is to immortalize his name as
the introducer of the Hawaiian Pro
hibitory Liquor Law.
We aio requested by Mr. Dole,
Chairman of the Loan Exhibition, to

The temper of the Rcprcscntnthes
towards the Ministry, was slightly
indicated yesterday. The Report of
the Minister of the Interior, includ
ing those of the several bureaus un
der that Depnrtmrnt, was presented ;
the Minister of Finance explained
that owing to a delay in the printing,
the Report of his Department was
delayed. Whereupon the Hon. M.
Palohau, of Hanalei, observed that
the only report that was absolutely
required by law, (Constitution Art.
44) was that of tho Minister of
Finance, who " shall present to the
Legislative Assembly in the name of
the Government, on the first day of
the meeting of the Legislature, the
Financial Budget, in the Hawaiian
nnd English languages." There
was n general chorus of approval of
this view of the matter, on the part
of tho Representatives.
Tho bill authorizing an election in
the district of Kaanapali, Maui, was
finally passed, whereupon the House
The entertainment last evening at
Music Hall called out a very largo
audience. In fact, it seemed that
everybody and his wife and his
sibcers and his cousins and his aunts
was present. The music, tho
singing, the readings, the tableaux
were all really excellent, and
elicited hensty applause throughout.
The tableaux' were exceptionally fine,
and were put on the stago most art
istically. But our space will not
allow us to particularize we leave
that task to the big weeklies.
