THE GOTHENBURG SYSTEM.
Sketch of this FamouB Plan for
Diminution of Drunkonnoss.
In spito of tho prnisowortliy oxor
tions of tlio Bluo liihhoii Longuo,
Good Tomplnrs and other total ab
stinonco soeiotioa to froo tlio world
from tho ovils of tho drink domou,
it is yot a tplorably settled fact, that
tho public in gonornl cannot bo kept
from drinking alcoholic drinks, and
it is a vory much disputed dogma
whothor tho tomporato drinking of
alcoholic bovorages is good or bad
for tho human constitution in gen
eral. Lot us suppose it is bad; wo
cannot stop it; thou lot us abate it
and mako it tho least possibly objec
tionable. Not only thousands but
millions of people are of the same
opinion as we, that good alcoholic
drinks takon temperately, so that
they do not intorforo with a man's
family and business alfairs or the
public, is not an objectionable luxury.
A man is entitled to that luxury legi
timately, as well as obtaining oay
chairs and spring mattresses legiti
mately. This theory is quite well
Bottled in tho minds of a groat part
of tho govorning pooplo of our
try, but thoro has been great dis
agreement as to tho best way to
furnish tho pooplo with alcoholic
drinks in such a manner, that it
should not bo obnoxious to the non
drinking part of tho public in gen
eral, and it is this that has prompted
us to offer tlio following suggestions:
Boforo 1884 saloons woro only
licensed in Honolulu, but t hat j-ear
a law was passed to license saloons
in ovory district of tho islands, and
saloons woro started in tho moie
populous districts. Some of these
saloons, which woro run in a proper
manner, aro in existence yot, but tho
most of thorn aro closed up; I hoy
were often run by natives, who are
utterly unfit for such a position, and
tho saloon was in consequence run
in such a manner that it was a dis
grace to tho community, and peti
tions woro sent by tho law-abiding
people of tho district to hao tho
iiconso cancelled or not ronowed. It
lies with tho Minister of tho Intorior
to grant liquor licenses and ho has
rightfully boon vory rosorved about
issuing somo licenses, leaving it
mostly to local option in the coun
try districts, and tho Minister has
also used his discretion in issuing
licenses in localities of Honolulu,
whore tho respectable people ob
jected. When one of tho subscribers was
abroad last year ho visited his native
country, Norway, and traveled about
a good deal visiting several towns,
whoro he had been ton or more years,
ago, and had a good chance to com
pare, and ho was pleasantly surprised
to see all tho improvements in and
around tho towns. In particular ho
remembers visiting an old school
mate, who is a minister of tho gos
pel in one of tho small towns on the
sea-coast. This good cleigj'inan
took him about tho little town to
see the sights, and as ho had spent a
whole summer in said town somo
fifteen or sixteen years ago, ho could
mojre easily see tho changes than a
man who had lived thoro all tho time.
His friend took him over a piece
of macadamized road to tho church,
instead of the old cow trail which
was impossible for any other vehicle
than a wheelbarrow. Tho church
yard was well kept and surrounded
by a now substantial fence instead of
tho old broken-down affair. Ho
was shown a nice now schoolhouso
and a small hospital. Ho asked his
conductor how a small town like
this, with no more than two t hou
sand inhabitants, could afford to
keep up such institutions and . have
such improvements made. Ho was
answered with tho onby word,
"Whisky," and afterwards on furth
er inquiry, it was explained that
years ago an association for tho sale
of ardent spirits, wino and beer had
boon started by tho leading citizens
of tho town, tho surplus of which
was used for public improvements
and benevolence, philanthropic in
stitutions or other objects of general
utility; honco all tho improvements
of tho public institutions, which he
had found. Tho minister further
told him that povortj' was diminish
ed and drunkonnoss, with all tho
vices in its train, had boon so abated
that ho had not seen a drunken man
for a long time, and tho salo of
liquor, which was generally consid
ered one of tho curses in tlio world,
had been cut down thoro to "next to
nothing" as a vice, and tho benefit
to tho community derived from tho
salo of liquor anybody could see, as
tho poor widows' circumstances
were alloviated, tho orphans takon
caro of and educated, tho sick nursed,
and benefit was derived thorofrom
by all public organizations of bono
volonco, philanthropy and general
This system was originally started
in Sweden, but it is now introduced
in almost overy town in Sweden and
Norway, as tho pooplo woro not slow
to perceive its benefit, and it lias
created considerable attention in
other countries. Tho well-known
writer, Itight Hon. tho Earl of
Meath, had an article on tho subject
in The Nineteenth Century, Decem
ber, 1891, which is full of good
thought and strong argumont for
having a similar sj-stoni introduced
in Groat Britain. Tlio Earl of Meath,
howovor, is not tlio fiist English
writer on tho subject. Mr. Thomas
M. Wilson, G. E., Avroto in 185)0 a
pamphlet in which ho gives the his
tory and general account of the sys
tem, and tho Earl of Month has
used this pamphlet as a basis for his
article The subscribers havo never
soon Mr. Wilson's pamphlet, but to
i'udgo from the parts which tho
Sari of Meath has used, it seems
correct and is mostly based upon
tho arrangement of tho association
in tho city of Borgon.
According to tho laws of Norway
the salo of spirituous liquors in
quantitios of and over -10 liter is free
to ovory holder of a general mer
chandise license. For the salo of
spirituous liquors in smaller quanti
ties than 40 liter, but not less than
a bottlo, anothor kind of license is
needed, for selling by the glass an
other kind of license is used, and for
eolling of wino and boor by tho glass
still anothor kind. For tho salo of
spirituous liiniora in smaller quanti
ties than 40 liter tho Iiconso is had
from tho city council, which body
also decides about tho nuinbor of
licensos to bo issued. For every li
cense is paid a certain feo to tho
poor-houso fund. Tho amount is
determined by the city; council for
every year and the feo is regulated
by tho quantity of spirituous liquors
calculated to bo consumed in tlio
ensuing year. A tax of 18J oro (4
cents) is supposed to bo imposed on
every liter. And the amount is then
divided with the nuinbor of liconsos
and the quotient is the feo for each
retail liquor license.

Aid to Boarding Schools.
It scorns to nie that thoro is a
great deal of misconception touch
ing the present value and tho mis
sion of the three or four so-called
denominational schools, for whom a
small appropriation is asked. Tho
parrot cry of "stato aid to religion"
is raised when tho honest crj should
bo, "aid for afow hungry and neg
lected children against starvation."
1 am opposed to stato aid to roli
gion or roligjous teaching as such;
and I am still stronger opposed to
the starvation physical and mental
which would bo tho lot of many a
poor child, at this present crisis,
were it not for these few schools for
whom a paltry pittance is asked,
hardly equal to the paj' of a stato
teacher for each school.
It might bo argued from tho stand
point of common honesty, by par
ents who liko nvysolf profor tlio
teaching of a denominational school,
that thero is surely a national stato
valuo in tho secular teaching of such
schools; but this plea of general
valuo is lost sight of in tho greater
one, that hero only tho criminal
child is entitled to the caro of tho
statoj and if a child remains obdu
rate in his proforonces for virtuo, ho
must tako the consoquoncos legally,
'in such cases made and provided,"
aim starve, unless tlio menus ol a
denominational school take pity on
Tho stato has hero evaded a mani
fest duty, and thrown it on tho
boarding schools, whoso resources
aro now taxed to the utmost.
