STILL MORE REASONING.
KniToit 15uixi:tin : In your issue
of 17th hist., "Aloliu," unable to
longer keep down what 1ms been
bubbling up all the while he was
reading my correspondence, comes
to the front with the grand flourish
of selected bubbles, misconstruc
tions, and groundless charges, with
which he confidently seeks to send
me Hying from the helm of truth
and correct understanding. To seize
upon and strangle in a literary sense,
eacli and all of his erroneous as
sumptions and stereotyped prohibi
tory tlights of unreasonable exag
gerations, would be (piite an easy
task for me, provided 1 had the
time and the inclination to do so. It
was my intention not to reply to
"Aloha's" letter, but as he writes
very much after the manner of a
new-comer to our islands, dependent
entirely upon information derived
from a numerically small class in
our community, who are prone to
picture everything and everybody
in the darkest colors that refuse to
be dovetailed into their rickctty and
creaky platform, 1 deem it a "duty 1
owe to mankind generally, and our
friend in particular, to steer him
into the path of truth and correct
understanding. lie says: " lie
determines, not only to open wide
the Hood gates of ruin through which
the Hawaiian race is passing to-day.
but also to knock down every man
who attempts to close these gates."
To this ilagrant and foundationless
charge, 1 will merely say that
"Aloha" docs mu a gross injustice,
and that he has read nothing in my
correspondence to warrant him, or
any intelligent reader, in arriving at
any such conclusion. My primary
anil chief object in entering upon
this controversy, was to disprove
misrepresentations and false state
ments set on foot by unblushing and
fanatical sticklers for the prohibi
tion muzzle, which they fain would
fasten over the mouths of their
fellow men, and to prove that pro
hibition in the liquor traffic had
been, is, or may be, attempted to
be forced upon an enlightened com
munity. Having accomplished this
"commendable mission," I propose
to gracefully step back to my legi
timate pursuits, after imparting to
"Aloha" the truthful information I
promised him, and which he appears
to stand so much in need of.
With a sort of inflated turkey
gobbler strut, he pompously puts
the question: "But has he ever
heard anything of the decay of the
Hawaiian race?" Now, Mr. Editor,
after an unbroken residence of
nearly forty years among the Ha
waiian people, I feel myself pro
perly qualified to answer this ques
tion, and slate that I not only have
heard but know of the real causes,
which have led to "the deep damna
tion of their taking off;" and if
"Aloha" will have a little patience,
I will set before him a few incon
trovertible facts. In the year 1818,
there arrived here the United States
frigate Independence, Commodore
Sliubrick, having the measles on
board, which disease found its way
on shore, spread rapidly among the
natives, carrying off several thou
sands. Anyone conversant with the
habits of Hawaiians and their ideas
on the preservation of health knows
well enough that upon the approach
of the slightest wela, or fever, up
to within a few years ago, they
would immediately plunge into the
coldest water procurable, thereby
aiding the deadly effects of the
measles. No rum there, "Aloha!"
In 185U, the clipper ship Charles
Mallory arrived from San Francisco,
having the small pox on board, and
though the ship was immediately
placed in quarantine in a suitable
position off Waikiki, the deadly
plague, which was secreted in a lot
of becond-hand clothing which had
been brought here for speculative
purposes, was disseminated among
the natives, breaking out and raging
in its most virulent form, carrying
off over 10,000 of them on this is
land alone and entirely depopulat
ing many districts cold water, as
in the case of the measles, lending
its aid to lengthen out the death
list. No rum there, "Aloha!"
Again, some ten years ago, or
thereabouts, a mystorious disease,
which puzzled the doctors to find a
proper nainc for, so far as 1 am
nwarc, was introduced and spread
rapidly among the natives of the
whole group, and this malady also
succeeded in carrying off vast num
bers. No rum there, "Aloha!"
Later on, during the so-called Car
ter Administration, the smallpox
made a second onslaught on the
already pretty well thinned out
native population, and the many
graves which found unfortunate
occupants on the reef-beach oppo
site Honolulu, will give a more cor
rect answer as to the number of
deaths which ensued than I can.
No rum there, "Aloha!"
Add to this ghastly array of stub
born facts, the wide-spread preva
lence of scrofula and other death
dealing disorders among the natives,
mid the too frequent aversion of the
native women to the bearing anil
roaring of children 3u times past,
coupled willi tha aversion of many
of the natives to call in a properly
qualified physician to minister to
their wants at the proper time, and
we have the main causes of the
deciniaiiou of the Hawaiian race,
w'lich "Aloha" and others of his
school of reasoners would lay at the
door of nun "merely this, and no
After a somewhat, strained and
ions-drawn out display of flowery
and windy rhetorical dodgings, and
with the air of a modern lileiary
Claude Duval, he reaches for my
knowledge purse with : "I for one
demand of him to show in what
particular the liquor tralllc, in any
stale of existence, licensed or un
licensed, is a benefit to the indi
v'dual, the home or the nation."
lteing of a most obliging disposition,
ever ready to throw light into dark
ened places, if the gentleman will
take the time to ponder over and
carefully digest the following bit of
valuable and truthful information
..om a high authority, I think I
shall fully satisfy his demand :
Dr. Roberts, of Manchester, Eng
land, obsei ,'e- that It Is dilllcult to be
lieve that the habitual use, even In a
most temperate degree, of so .subtle and
so potent an agent as uleoliol Is with
out influence on the moral and lutcl
leetua' development of individuals and
their descendants, and, therefore, on the
rnccnnd nation. Xothhurtolilnils more
astonishing than the dhferciit Impres
sions proiluecd'by an examination of the
alcoholic question as It regards the In
dividual on the one hand and the race
or nation on the other. Nowhere amongst
civilized communities is there seen so
much phvsieal, moral and intellectual
ruin of Individuals as in Great Britain,
and yet the national deatlirato is one of
the lowest In the world, and the moral
and intellectual vigor of the race and
nation is unsurpassed. Again taking a
wider view and surveying the nations
which abstain from alcohol the vast
Mussulman population and the other
millions of Asia we recognize that they
are, upon the whole, far inferior to the
alcohol-bred nations of the West. The
Japanese are the only Asiatic people
who haveforccuturies consumed alcohol
Inrgelv, and it is curious to note that
they display a mental receptivity and a
love of progress which arc iu marked
contrast with the stagnation around
them, insomuch that they have been
called the Europeans of the East.
These strange contrasts and they might
be multiplied arc not, of course,
wholly due to alcohol. Ear from that,
hut it might be hazardous to conclude
that alcohol was not a contributary fac
tor. It would not be altogether satis
factory to llud that, after banishing
alcohol, we should become poorer in
manliness and intellect.
In conclusion, allow me to say to
"Aloha" and his would-be prohi
bitionists : Cease your fruitless at
tempts to foist upon mankind laws
totally at variance with the require
ments of this enlightened age, and
repulsive to every liberty-loving
man and woman in Christendom.
The time which you arc wasting in
your efforts and struggles to curtail
the liberties of your fellow men,
millions of whom arc better qualified
to judge for themselves between
right and wrong, and what is good
or hurtful to them, than you or your
cohorts are to judge for them, might
lie more profitably spent in many
another and more laudable pursuit.
