MONDAY, JUNK 5, 1882.
THE LIQUOR TRAF21C,
The closing of Uio liquor saloons
on .Saturday Inst, on nccount of its
being election day, suggests a few
reflections which may he considered
ns pertinent. To a nt ranger just
arrived in the country, it would
unturnlly excite a good ninny ques
tions, to bo told that by the laws of
the country the keepers of these
naloons, and everybody else, are
strictly forbidden to sell, give or
furnish any intoxicating drink to
'native Hawaiian at any lime, and
that as a rule, the law is faithfully
observed by tho saloou keepers and
the gicat majority of foreigners.
The first question asked by the inno
cent stranger would be, If the
natives cannot get liquor, why then
close the saloons ? It. would le
difficult to frame a satisfactorj'
answer. Perhaps it is thought lest
. to " assume a virtue, if you have it
The fact is admitted that, notwith-
standing the law, the natives can
get as much liquor ns they are able
to pay for, and not from the liquor
'Baloons either. This is illustrated,
particularly on Sundays, when all
liquor establishments are, we arc as
sured, faithfully kept closed. It is
next to an impossibility for a for
eigner to buy a bottle of liquor on
that day, but it is well known that n
native with money can obtain it
without any trouble. Instances, we
are told, are not infrequent of for
eigners employing natives to get
their supplies of liquor on, Sundaj's.
Good and salutary laws arc out of
place on the statute books, if they
arc constantly and notoiiously
broken. In oider to secure the
strict and honest enforcement of any
penal law, like those under consi
deration, for instance,
the liquor traffic and Sunday obser
vance it must have the backing of
a solid, intelligent public opinion! .

Notwithstanding the liquor
saloons were closed on Saturday, it
was evident early in tho day that
" tho spirits " were making their in
fluence felt on quite a number of na
tives in and about the Government
House. Qf course, they bought the
aforesaid spirits at the saloons the
day before !

print from the Friend of yes

" Sabbath Observance," .and call at
tention to it, ns a timely admonition
from one who has the best interests
of the Hawaiian People at heart.
I trust tho select committee to whom
the subject has been referred, will
give wise counsel in their report to
tho Legislative Assembly. ,
" Latu papers from tho coast in
form us that the people of the State
of California, arc determined to cn
forco a wholesome Sabhatli Law,
which closes all places of business
and public amusement. This is a
step forward and not backward. A
similar ell'ort is now being innde
in many of the Eastern States,
nnd it is with no moderate degree of
surprise and shame that, wo notice
an cuort on tho part of our legisla
tors to break down our Sabbath
Laws and open places of amusement
on the Holy Sabbath. We hope
thcro is good sense nnd principle
sufficient among the members of the
Legislature to frown down such a
project to legalize wickedness. Wo
call upon all good people of every
sect and creed to put their faces like
a flint ngainst this project on the
part of some to trample upon God's
command to Kcmember the Sabbath
and keep it holy.' Sabbath-breaking,
rum-Belling and vico of all kinds bo
long to tho same class of defiant and
overt acts of wickedness tending to
demoralize tho cummunity and bring
down the displeasure of Heaven.
Now is the time for virtuous woman
and good men to Bueak out and
shame down these men who would
open the flood gates of sin and im
purity, crime and licentiousness upon
our island cummunity. Wc cannot
imagine that a majority of our Legis
lators are prepared to sanction a mea
sure fraught with such untold evils.
With free rum, free opium, free Sal
bath, and what are wc coming to?
Ye fathers and mothers of families !
Ye pure and virtuous women 1 Ye
correct men, young and old, now
speak out, and apeak to those who
sit in our Legislative Hall and there
would legalize sin, encourage crime.
