"Assembly, niul will probably be tnk-
$. ,.. on up for discussion dunng the com-
1 lg week. Its main fea'.urcs arc ; one
annual license, for Honolulu only,
tp 1)0 sold at auction at an upset
price of thirty thousand dollars ; the
purchaser giving bonds In ten thous-
, and dollarViiot to sell to other. than
Chinese, &c, &c.
The main arguments in favor of
'.. the proposed measure, so far an we
have been informed, are that the
. prohibition of the importation, and
k'j,, i )iuu: w uijsuiuy u inuuii'i iu.id-
fyjj ': much as it is patent that largo quan-
L'tUies arc smuggled into the couutry,
U-"f' not only by Chinese but by others to
whom the large prolit is a temptation
to go into the business ; that an it is
manifestly impossible to utterly ex
clude opium, the winer course will
bo by licensing to control it ; and
that a high price put on the license
will ensure watchfulness on the part
of the licensee against smuggling
On the other hand, the opponents
of the opium license aver that it
was abolished, after a trial of a num
ber of years, principally for the
reason that by the use of opium be
ing legalized among the Chinese the
pernicious habit had extensively
spread, among the natives, adding
another to the many already oxisting
causes of death and disease; that
prohibition has not been a failure,
but a reasonable success ; and that
,, the quantity of the drag smuggled
' has been very much exaggerated.
,'In view of tlio' largo body of Chi
nese already here, and the prob
ability that we shall yet bo so un
fortunate as to have many, more in
:lr - i fitcad of less, this question of licens
ing opium is n very important .one,
.and. should be carefully weighed.

Mn. Editor.: InV.tHo published
report of Yhe .speeches made at the
mass meeting in Music Hall, in tlio
early part of tlio present month, to
discuss the question of n law pro
hibiting the importation and salo of
intoxloating drinks in this Kingdom,
among other things that might be
criticized, in my humblo opinion,
was a remark in tho courso of the
address of Mr. P. C. Jones, jr. of
the Arm of Brewer & Co. That
gontleman ia quoted as having said:
"1 take tlio liberty of suggesting
that by the passage of this law the
expenses for the police force must
be greatly rodueed, it would not
necessitate, the enlargement of the
prison as is -now contemplated," &c.
Now, it is curious to note bow
people who are enthusiastic on a pet
theory, jump at , conclusions, and
how apt temperance folks arc to talk
iutcmperatcly. I don't believe that
iu a matter of pure business the
gentleman named would misa his
calculations so widely as he has, in
my humble opinion, when he paints
to our imagination the delightful,
elysian condition of things to result
from a prohibition law little or no
further need of police or prisons !
We are to suppose that everybody
will of course Bit quietly and obe
diently under prohibition there will
be absolutely no smuggling, and
illicit distilling will never be dream
ed of. Why, Mr. Editor, oyer since
the memorable episode of our mateijj
mil ancestor about the apple, there
has been an inherent inclination in
humanity to seek after'that which is
forbidden; and so here, if you
utterly forbid tho importation of
spirits, your customs guards and
your police force will have a lively
time in preventing on tho one hand
the smuggling of the1 nrticlo from
abroad, and on .'the- ether, its, sly
manufacture, in. thib country ., ,

A slight injury, 'severe cold, or
shock to the body or mind, will
commonly provoke acuto disease,

alcohol, ho ia more Incurable and
more generally diseased. The con
stant uso of beer evcryl dt$ 'gives'
the system no time for recuperation,
but steadily lowers tlio vital forces.
It is our observation that beer-drinking
in this .country produces the
very1 lowest forms of inebriety,
closely allied to criminal ins'nnity.
The most dangerous class of trampa
and rutllians in our cities are beer
drinkers. It is-asBertcd by compe

dity are more positive in tins class

are well founded,, the recourse to
