Tliroughont nil the diseusfuon
o thu (incation of liconsiug tho
opium trnfiic, in ninny years, lifllo
or no tangible ronson 1ms boon
given in support o tho theory
flint such n clinngo from prohibi
tion would put n stop to smug
gling. If tho drug veroinndo cheap
under a liconso system, or com
paratively froo trade in it brought
about, there would bo room for
argument in support of that theory.
The measure now ponding in tho
Legislature, however, does not
comply with any such conditions.
It fixes an enormous ad valorem
duty of ono hundred porcent on
opium, which in itself places tho
drug in tho vory highest class of
luxuries for taxation. In its bulk
relative to valuo opium would un
dor such a tax bo far abovo cigars in
comparison as an incentive to
smuggling. Indeed, it would
not bo a comparison but
n coutinst. Yv'ilh such a tax
upon it, there would bo more com
parison with silk, ns nn under
ground commorcinl commodity.
Thero is not only tho
liugo tariff tax proposed tq place
a premium on illicit trnfiic, but
ihe internal revenue tnx in tho
form of prodigious license fees for
running opium joints. These fees
muouut for all tho iHlnuds nt
tho upset price that miry bo
far exceeded in competition
'to sixty thousand dollars. Bo
sides these heavy import and
liceuso taxes thoro is a stamp
tux of ono dollar for every
lialf-pound of opium imported.
Prohibition can surely go no fur
ther in giving tho drug a fictitious
value,promising lucrative gnins to
tho daring and skill of tho smug
gler, than such ponderous taxa
tion ns thnt horo dotailod. Tho
idea that tho licensed dealors from
their self-interest can better pre
vent smuggling than tho Gov
v eminent for tho sake of
its good name carries an insulting
implication to both tho Govern
ment ond the country, and does
no credit to tho sngacity of those
who promulgate tho idle notion.
There is not tho least doubt to
take up another phaso of tho ques
tion that licensing would great
ly increuso tho consumption of
the drug. Is this desirnblo ? Is
any class, tho smallest proportion
that is worthy to bo mentioned in
argument, of tho population suf
fering for want of easy access to
opium ? Tho greatest good to tho
greatest uumbor is interpreted po-
litcally to mean whatever tlio do-sires-
good or bud of tho greatest
number aro.By this criterion alone,
then, tho licensing of opium ought
to bo ruled summarily out of
court. Opium smuggling as now

carried on, however bnd as throw
ing contempt on law, really
docs not hurt tho greatest
number a little bit. Undor tho
relaxation of liconso, however, tho
community at largo would bo sore
ly pained nt results of tho trnfiic
that would soon bo universally
patent. Those who aro apprehen
sive of tho ond of existing Asiatic
aggression should opposo opium

77? e Guardianship
of a Watch -maw
STRANGE that wo should
be advertising our watch de
partment so much, when al
ready every one in the islands
knows that WE ARE TILE
PEOPLE for fino watch
work. But the point is just
this: Our perfect work is so
appreciated, that wo find our
present facilities are just a lit
tle too small to handle thu
large volumo of work with dis
patch; so we aro going to en
largo tho department, and
WANT YOUR WORK also.
Seethe point? Excellence
tho tup notch of perfection
that's the tnngnet which drawj,
and the only one we use. If
you could only realize how
much worry we can save you
by bringing your timepicco to
us in the fust placo, you would
not hesitato an instant, when
things have gone wrong, but
bring your watch to us at once.
Complicated work is our spe
cial delight. The watch 1ms
not yet been mndo, which wo
cannot handle in a proper and
workmanlike manner. Today
wo do all work which up to a
few years ago had to bo sent
away; in so.mo cases ovon to
the factory where the watch
was mane. io amount ot
bragging on our part could bo
as convincing to you, as tho
great number of watches, of a
complicated order, which have
been perfectly repaired by us
in tho past few j'ears and of
which tho owners will tell you,
that they aro PERFECTLY
Do you wish to be convinced
of this. No better way than
to appoint us your watch guar

A church congregation clown
in Sanders, Ky., was dismissed
most summarily under un
pleasant circumstances two
Sundays since. Right intheljfLJSl
middle of the preacher's dis
course there bolted into the
church through the half-open
door what appeared to be a
black and white cat, closely
followed by a yellow dog. Cat
and dog ran swiftly down the
middle aisle to the platform.
The preacher taken unawares,
did the natural thing, kicked
at the cat, hit it, and landed it
squarely in the middle of the
congregation. Then it turned
out that the cat was a skunk.
The rest of the story is left to
the imagination of the reader.
This week we want to call
your attention especially to the
Alaska Refrigerator and
give you a few items concern
ing its construction.
To give strength and. dura
bility, an inside body, or frame
is made of well dried, matched
wood, to which hardwood
cleats are solidly nailed. Uport
these cleats the outer body, or
frame, is built.
The inner frame is made
from perfectly odorless wood,
and is lined with zinc. Po
lished as bright as a mirror,
presenting a very clean and at
All exposed wood, as under j
the lids and about the doors,
is odorless tulip poplar,
thoroughly shellaced. This
makes the Refrigerator clean
Between the outer and inner
walls there is an inch and a
half space filled with PURE
Charcoal. There is nothing
so oood in every way for fil
ling the space between the
two walls ol a Refrigerator as
The locks are entirely new
in principle, and are, without
exception, the best ever used
on a Refrigerator. They will
keep the door closed perfectly'
tight, even, if they were left
one-eighth inch loose.
The hinges are very strong,
beautiful in design, and- made
expressly for Ihe Alaska
All the trimmings are- solid
brass, dipped finish, this being
the latest style in fine brass
From, the results of tests
made during the past three
years, we are convinced that
the Alaska is the best Re
frigerator in the market, in
construction, in pawer to pre
serve perishables,, in economy
of ice, and, in fact, in all the:
points necessary to make them,
first-class in evecy respect.
