The effect of the new liquor law
upon the native population becomes
daily more apparent. .The records of
the Police Court show an increase
of drunkenness within the past twelve
months, and it is noticeable on the
streets. "We have examined the Po
lice Court records of 17th November
1881 and 1883; on each previous
day there had been a holiday and a
regatta. In 1881 the natives were
not allowed to purchase liquor and
there were seven cases of intem
perance brought before the Police
Court ou the 17th November. On
the same day, last week, there were
twenty cases, an increase of almost
two hundred per cent in two years.
Do the records of the Court repre
sent all the cases that occur? No
they do not represent one quarter of
them. It was very generally re
marked on the occasion of last week's
holiday, that there was more intem
perance among the natives than had
been seen for years. Many of them
escaped the clutches of the law by
'being driven home. Young girls,
under twenty years of age, were seen
unable to walk.
His Honor the Chief Justice, at a
recent meeting of the Y. M. C. A.
said that, within the past twelve
months, crime had increased among
the natives, and he attributed it to
their increased consumption of li
quor. Rev. A. Forbes, at a more
recent meeting of the same institu
tion said, that drunkenness was in
creasing, on the other islands, among
the natives, that they now buy their
liquor by the case and carouse till it
is gone, when they get more. It is
known throughout the kingdom that
liquor is sold on all the islands,
where there is no license to sell it.
What is being done to prevent it?
Nothing. In Honolulu there are
temperance lodges, but do 'their
members try to prevent intemperance
among the natives? The Y. M. C. A.
is now doing good work in this
cause, and has recently provided
free entertainments, especially for
young men. Does this association
reach the natives? No.
p Some change should be made in
the present liquor law, wnicn re
mains in force till 1st January 1885.
It will bo no easy matter to make
a change since the natives have once
had the right of purchasing all the
liquor they want, or rather do not
want. If the law cannot be re-
pealed, the quantity of liquor con
j sumed can be reduced by regulating
J' its quality. A bottle of brandy can
l(iiow be purchased for a dollar ; the
duty on that bottle is half a dollar ;
it has to be manufactured, or we
"should rather say concocted; the
1 concocters make a profit; there is
"freight ,to be paid; there is the profit
of the wholesale dealer and the profit
'' of the retail dealer. All these
charges come out of half a dollar ;
. what, then, can be the quality of
the liquor consumed ? Why is the
stuff not analysed? The Govern
ment at least have power to take
1 this step. If it be imperative to sell
liquor only of a good quality, and
even at higher prices than at present,
' then some reform would bo effected ;
tho natives could not purchase as
.xauch as they do now, and it would
"f lib less hurtful to them.
r' ' Here is something for the great
and good Mr. Gibson to take in
; i hand ; hero he can show his loye for
a "simple and ignorant people; '
'yjiuru no cuii employ uis uuiu uuu
intelligence better than by issuing
paltry protests, or by Haunting "gay
ers of meaningless uniforms
before the mocking eyes of real
power and prosperity." Wo will
conclude witti a lew more ot his own
iyrordB, when ho was not the Premier.
1'fSb'all we wait for the prompting
and example of the respectable.

to help a fallen brother. Wo like,
however, tho goods of this world,
and we havo a reasonable desire for
the glittering filthy lucre that help

so ninny needs, and enables us to

bo happy to spend a fortune in tho
