This work has beon propared
for the Y. M. 0. A. nnd submitted
for tho consideration of tho Liquor
Commission nnd tho general pub
lic. Its facts nnd figures Iihao
beon compiled from tho reports of
tho Chief Justice, tho Collector
Gonornl of Custom?, tho Attorney
Gonoral, tho Board of Health nnd
tho District Court o Honolulu.
Comparisons to bring homo tho
author's arguments for tho res
triction of tho liquor traffic aro
given. This is ono on tho first
pago: "Tho liquor consumed iu
Hawaii in tho years 1870-1895 in
clusive would fill a trench, 5 foot
wido and four foet deep, reaching
from Honolulu Post Office to half
a milo boyond Mr. Paul Isonborg's
residonco at Waialao GJ miles
and still leavo a tank "holding
1-1,000 gallons unused."
Ono of tho tables shows that tho
liquor traffic has grown from 11,
000 gallons in 18G5 to 479,000 gal
lons in 1895. From tho statistics
of criino givon tho author deduces
tho proposition that in tho yoars
from 1870 to 1895 inclusive
tho country has inclined a loss
through drink of 19.000,000.
"This inonoy would build a SoOOO
houso oji oory GO foet frontage on
both sides of a stroot twonty-ono
and a half miles in longtli. It
would buy n &200 lot and put n
$275 houso upon each lot for every
native Hawaiian and lmlf-whito
(10,000) in tho llawniinn Islands,"
To remedy tho evils of thotiaffic
Mr. Peck inoposes to givo it into
tho bauds of one or two chartoied
companies, only allowing thorn a
reasonable intorost on tho capital
invested instead of tho profits.
Ho would confine tho salo to
ordinary business hours,rostrict all
Balos to cash, allow no drink to bo
consumed on promises where sold,
placo hoavy ponnlties upon Bales
to minors, havo frequent chonii-
cal inspection of tho goods and a
government auditing of all ac
counts. Tho pamphlet provides finished
work partly of tho kind for which
tho Liquor Commission was appointed.

Christianity is not nn abstract

THE bTANDAllD OE 1'UIUTY.
Tho Btnndnrd of purity has boon
steadily raised nnd it is steadily
rising. Neither Swift nor Storn
would bo tolorntod today in any
Christian pulpit. Tho tonoof tho
English literature has beon great
ly oiuvnted since thnt timo and,
mor'oor, it is cnuso for gratitude
that pure nnd healthy litornture is
nowadays qiiito as chonp as that
which is filthy and degrading.
Rov. Jumos MoLeod, Presbyteri

War means n picture too horri
blo to contomplnto; it moans sa
cred relationships broken, it means
homes shattered: it means univer
sal sonow and mourning; it moans;
prosperous cities erased from the
map oE our country; it moans great
fortunes lost; it moans nn iuhqrit
nnco oE poverty to our descen
dants. War is a relic of barba
rism, a brutal devico of savagery.
