The Advertiser is mighty tit call
ing names and making unsubstan
tiated assertions. In a plea for
legalizing the importation of opium,
mingled with a coarse tirade against
the advocates of prohibition, to-day,
it says: "In this case, at least,
prohibition docs not prohibit. Quite
ns much opium is imported contra
band as would be imported were
there no embargo upon it." After
ward it bays: "When 2,000 tins
of opium, more or less, are seized
every few weeks, the scandal of
the trnfllc has reached a point at
which public policy must interfere
to put a stop to it." So prohibition,
" in this case, at least," does pro
hibit to the extent of 2,000 tins of
opium " every few weeks." Facts,
as was pointed out in these columns
the other day, are against the morn
ing paper's assertions. A member
of the House of Nobles, a leading
merchant and planter, went all over
the Kingdom to ascertain for him
self the effects of the prohibitory
law. The result of his investigation
he stated in the Legislature, in the
opinion that the plantations were
comparatively free from the drug.
When prohibition has put the price
up to 870 a tin, nobody of any sense
will say that it is not prohibitive to
thousands of our population, who
would otherwise be enslaved vota
ries of the drug. The " scandal of
the traffic," aecordingto our sapient
contemporary, seems to consist in
the fact that seizures arc made. It
would be scandalous, rather, if the
importations escaped scizuc. The
embargo is effective just about in
the degree that the customs and
police ollicials are up to their duties.
It is in the power of the Government,
if it chooses, to make the prohibi
tion as nearly absolute as the law
STATE OF TRADE.
The Advertiser gives figures,
partly approximate, showing exports
of domestic products of the king
dom, for the past six months, to
have amounted to S5,81S,133.70,
and the imports, at the port of
Honolulu, of merchandise, to 81,
598,757.81. Deducting 8171,-107.20,
value of coin imported, it is found
that the value of exports exceeds
by three and a half times the value
of imports. Our contemporary con
cludes that "there is really nothing
whatever in the industrial condition
of the kingdom to account for the
existing depression." Business men
give as one reason for the depres
sion the unsatisfactory position in
which the currency is left, and they
are doubtless correct. Another
reason freely given about town is
that Chinese mechanics have driven
out hundreds of the best customers
of the white shopkeepers. This
also is bald fact.
The 1JUIJ.KTIN, on Thursday, Fri
day, nnd Tuesday, will contain in
teresting original essays on "Moths
and Butterflies," by Emma M. Hen
ton; "Mammalia of the Hawaiian
Islands," by llnttie Hitchcock;
"To-day wc fashion destiny, Our
web of Fate we spin," by May
Dillingham. The essays will be
printed, one in each issue, and in the
order named above.
A very interesting letter, "About
Molokai," appeals on the fourth
page of this issue. Wo should be
glad if our friends who move about
would follow llio example of tills
correspondent, nnd give the results
of their observations to the public
through our columns. Thus many
wrong impression regarding the
countiy would be corrected, and
much valuablu information be mndo
A rather unique mark of fnor has
been bestowed by the Government
upon the rcliiiiig United Stales Con
sul at this port, in making him Con
snUGencral of this kingdom for tho
Pacific Coast. Tho citizens of Hono
lulu, who havo observed Mr. McKin
lcy's conscientious discharge of duty
townrd the Government whose ser
vice he is leaving, will be confident
that he will he equally faithful to the
interests of the country adopting
him as its representative.
