Editoii Bulletin : The letter of
your correspondent "Nota Bene"
6 printed in io-aay s jbolletin, pur
ports to be an answer to a communi
cation of Mr. D. M. Crowley's;
and if Nota Bone had limited the
scope of uiari'marks to .ah Asporta
tion intended solely for Mr." Crow
ley's benefit, I would not interfere
In the matter, as I presume Mr. D.
M. C. is well enough qualified 'to
tako care of himself ; but when tho
whole tenor of Nota Bcne'8 letter is
really an attack upon prohibitionists
generally, I, as one of those whom
he s kind enough to describo as
"the sincere and honest portion of
the prohibition party,' think it my
duty to claim the privilege of having
my "say" on the question. Nota
Bene intimates that his "sole pur
pose is to steer his fellow man into
the path of truth and correct under
standing," which is a very cpm
me'ndable mission for any man to
engage in, but the method by which
he is going to execute his highly
benevolent purpose is the queerest
ever proposed by any man avowing
benevolent intentions. He deter
mines not only . to open wide the
flood gates of riiin through which
the Hawaiian race is passing to-day,
but also to knock down every man
who attempts to close theso gates.
His reason for launching so unique
a scheme of benevolence is about as
wise as the scheme itself. The best
he has to offer is that the laws of
Iowa, Maine, and other states are
not enforced as they ought to be.
An unanswerable reason truly 1 He
has evidently been consuming the
midnight oil in the perusal of anti
prohibition paragraphs in Ifarper's
Weekly, and the Cincinnati Com
mercial Gazette; but has he ever
heard anything of the decay of tho
Hawaiian race, which probably the
journals named would tell him, if
he did not kow it before, is physic
ally, and in many other respects,
one of the noblest, if not the noblest
qt all the islands of the Pacific? If
he will look at the Honolulu Police
Court reports in tho daily news
papers and note well the names of
the individuals fined and imprisoned
for drunkenness, he will find some
truths more startling in their direct
ness than he can ever hope to im
port from abroad, and that may
help to light his way into "the path
of truth and understanding." It is
very fine to show up the short
comings of the administrators of
prohibition laws in Iowa, or in
Maine ; but if he really, means to
, "let us reason again," I am ready
to reason right from book. A large
proportion of all tho indictments in
our police courts consistsof charges
of drunkenness, and a still larger
proportion of the' charges of drunk
enness stands against names of
natives. .1. venture to predict that
Nota, Bene will find, on Monday
next, in the police reports of this
city, an array of arguments in favor
of prohibition of the liquor traffic
that will need something more for
midable than blank cartridge fired
off from borrowed Iowa guns to re
pulse. No man who is honestly and
sincerely solicitous about the future
of the Hawaiian race, not to speak
of other nationalities, will engage in
a free rum and whiskey crusade ;
for of all the elements of ruin at pre
sent forcing Hawaiians to extinction,
the liquor traffic is responsible to an
incalculable extent, for ''the deep
damnation of their taking off." If
the unsophisticated native, whose
very docility of character makes him
an easy prey to the spoiler; were pro
tected, as he. ought to be, with a
strong wall of prohibition ; his share
of tho "worst crimes recorded in
the calendars of the courts" of this
Kingdom would be small indeed.
This assertion, the calendars of
the courts are open to prove in
the face of all the fancy logic that
can be brought from New York,
Iowa, Maine or anywhere else.
Nota Bene's enumeration of crimes,
"the work, not of individuals crazed
by, rum, but of those, in their sober
senses" simply proves that some
men are fools, whether drunk or
sober "only that and nothing
more." Lest I be left under the
ban of not "having the slightest
particle of intelligence," I willingly
"concede the fact" that all the
crimes in the category of human
"diabolism and folly, drunkennesses
and the D T's excepted I hope
he will concede tho exceptions may
be perpetrated by persona who
"eschew the uso of intoxicating
beverages;" but I beg to inform
him of the bold fact that I have
been an "attentive reader" for more
than a quarter of a century of all
sorts of literature, moral and im
moral, religious and infidel, histo
rical and fictitious, reverent and
blasphemous, sarcastic and solemn,
wise and foolish, nonsensical and
metaphysical, including the Bul
letin, the Press, tho Advertiser
and tho Gazette, -with a little spicing
from the Luto Hawaiiano and the
Chinese News', but after all this
' variety of " observant" reading, I
have yet to see the .first of those
"only sided and fanatical' prints"
by which, any read.Gr can be "misled
into n chronic belief that offonoos
against law and order arc perpe
trated wholly and solely by persons
whoso brains have becomo deranged
by the excessive use of alcoholic
liquors'," and I have yet to meet
tho first person who was bo misled ;
nor do I believe that Nota Bene can
produce one of such prints Issued
by any author wiser than himself.
Whllo I have seen none of tho mad
literature he refers to, I have both
9'eifl and heard the testimony of
courts, of pSilpits, of prisons, of
bar-rooms, of mad houses, of dun
geons, of homes that were homes
anil ot homc3 that were hells, nil
duly noted, certified nnd attested,
that the prohibition of the liquor
traffic Is ono of the most desirable
reforms of tho present age. And
bofore ho can presume to face "tho
true metal of all prohibitionists,"
I, for one, demand of him to show in
what particular the liquor traffic in
any state of existence, licensed or
unlicensed, is a benefit to the un
diyidual, the home, or the nation.
And if he aspires to join issue yet
more closely; with "the true metal
of prohibitionists," the lists are
open. Entering there, he will find
himself confronted with a solid
phalanx composed chiefly of the
men and women of all nations,
whose every power of mind and
soul is bent to its utmost to raise
society up into a higher and purer
atmosphere of virtue and happiness
But I doubt very much if Nota
Bene, backed by the anti-prohibition
men of the world, has the
Quixotic Knighterrant recklessness
to hazard such an encounter.
Now that I have aired the fore
going opinions which kept bubbling
up all the while I was reading
Nota Bene's correspondence, and
trusting that he may be led into
"the path of truth and understand
ing," I beg to tender him a'hearty

1st The Society issues all tho approv.
ed forms of assurance, including Ordl
nary Life, T3 dowment and Tontine po
licies. It is immaterial to the Directors
which form of policy is taken by in
2d The Life and Endowment forms
of policy provide for annual cash divi.
dends and a surrender value; aio indis
putable after three years and payable
immediately after proof of death
8d The premiums on a Tontine po
licy nre tho same nB on tho Ordinary
Life, but, while the latter is only pay
nblcin the event'of death, the holder of
tho Tontine policy has the right to draw
tho whole of tho reserve and the accu
mulated profits in cash at the end of a
stated period; thus, during his own life
time, after his producing years are past,
ho can, without any larger premium
than on nn ordinnry policy, secure theto
4th Experience shows that the return
paid in cash on maturing Tontino po
llcies approximates to or exceeds the
amount of premiums paid by policy
holders, bo that tho average cost of the
assurance will bo only about the interest
on the premiums.
5th Tontino, policies, like others, are
paid in full in tho event of death at any
time during the term of the pulley, and
aro incontestable after three years, and
payable immediately after due proof of
Cth Experience shows, that thomor
tallty is lower among Tontino policy
holders, as tho better lives seek this
kind of assurances, which is a consider,
able source of profit.
7th Tontino policies will be made
non-forfeltable under the laws of the
State, If bo desired at tho time the as.
suranco is effected.
8th Tho Tontine system is fair and
just; its accounts aro accurately kept,
separate from all other business; tho
funds judiciously invested nnd Improv.
cd, and the accumulated profits faith,
fully guarded and properly apportioned,
0th The Society has Binco its organi.
zation transacted a larger amount of
now business than any othor company,
whllo Its now business for tho first half
of tho present year Is $1,750,000 larger
than that of tho first half of 1884. It
