tho goal of nnnoxntion. (Ap
plause.) "With regard to tho opium ques
tion, ho might bo rogunlod as a
heretic by many o his friends for
his views. Ho did not admit tho
aBBortions sometimes liiwlo of tho
largo part tho opium liceusu bill
had in producing tho overthrow
of tho monarchy. ( Itcertainly did
not have, groat influence on his
action. As a matter of fact, ho
did not vote against the bill in tho
Logislaturo of 1892. What had
more influonco than tho signing
of tho bill itself with himself and
othors was tho mannor in which
tho bill was passed. They saw a
numbor of mombers come ovnr
from tho palaco, with lew tircvunl
their necks, to yoto for tho hill.
Ho did not considor that financial
considerations should cut a figure
in tho sottloment of tho question.
Opium was an unmitigated evil,
with which our race was vory littlo
acquainted. It was different from
liquor in that respect, as a vast
proportion of our raco had boon
accustomed to liijuor from timo
immemorial, and would continue
to be so for timo immemorial.
Tho speaker told of the evil effects
of an opium license horo a scoro
rf ,nn,c. iirti i.lin linf n fnw mntl
of his acquaintance wero wrecked, S
most ot tnem neing now ui-uu. jj.o
did not agree with tho theory
somotimos broached, that tho na
tives could look out for thorn
solves. Tho natives worowith ub,
ond would continuo to live liero.
Thoy woro not going to leave tho
country, which wa9 their homo.
Their interests woro therefore in
our kcoplug, and anything that
would do them harm ought to
bo prevented from introduction.
There was no question that under
license Uio uso of opium would
become comparatively common
among tho natives as well as
whites. It was thoroforo an ovil
that should bo stumped out with
all tho ppisisteiK'o and energy
possible. On tho other hand,
tho udvocnU s of ticonsu for opium
point to tho public scandal of vio
lations of the prohibitory law.
Yet it was cortain that, to a large
extent, tli'o prohibition of opium
did prohibit. There might bo
moro stringent provisions added
to tho present law. For instance,
if o man was lined $200 for tho
first olIVnsG of opium smok
ing, and sont out of tho country
for a second ono, the traffic would
bo greatly curtailed. If an offend
er was giviug the option of leav
ing tho couutry, rather than pay
ing a heavy fine or going to jail,
tho probability is that tho number
of opium smokers in tiio country
would be reduced in ono year by
about frvo thousand. Yet, under
tho present law, tho extensive vio
lation of the law mado a woighty
argument in favor of license A
policeman or a customs guard get
ting $-10 a month would liardly bo
accused of boing a great villain
with a seared conscience if ho
took $200 to mako him look tho
othor way occasionally. When
peoplo saw tho police court block
ed with opium cases, and only
occasionally a principal brought
up with a round turn, it had a
tendency of habituating the com
munity to tho violation of- law,
which had n most demoralizing
influonco. Yot, when all was said,
his conclusion was tho samoas in
tho mattor of liquor, that it was
best to loavo tho question of
opium just where it stood, and
keep tho community united on tho
common aim of annexation to tho
Mr. Towso, editor of tho Star,
was called upon as a substituto for
Mr. Robertson. Ho said it wob
an honor to bo considored as a
substituto for a man liko Mr.
Robertson, who had distinguished
himself by saying in tho Legisla
ture that a publio oilico was a soft
snap. Making an allusion to tho
anniversary of St. Patrick, ho
spoke of tho gathering in that hall
in December, 1893, whon it was
decided to stand togother if tho U.
S. S. PJiiladolphuvs forces woro
lauded to work u littlo game. Tho
speakor disoussed tho liquor ques
tion, telling of his having boon a
witness to tho failure of prohibi
tion in Iowa. Ho favored regu
lation of tho tralllo by some sys
tem that might combine tho best
foaturos of tho Gothenburg and
tho South Carolina schomos.
Speaking in favor of opium liconso
as a preventive of tho scandal of
illicit dealing therein, ho said that
ho would undertake to go out and
iu fifteen minutes bring opium
into tho hall. Mr. Towso mado
JaimnoHo aggroKsiou tho mibiout
ot liia Htroiif.ii.troiiuU'l.H. Thoy had
noon lately tho luwt HtrontH of tho
ctity ocuupiud iu purl by .Ji.tmnimo
storoH, uiul that nutluimllty lind
mado moro oncroachmonton trado
and industry horo in ton yearB
than tho Chincso in fifty. Soine
pcoj)lo g good Honso hero bolioved
that Japaueso wore oligiblo to tho
franchise, which they claim as a
treaty right, and if they wero it
was only a question of timo when
tho 20,000 Japaneso in tho coun
try would bo in control. Thoro
Was nothing to prevent a Japan
ese contract laborer from having
a vote if his fellow-countryman,
the Nutiauu street merchant,
could get one. Tho plant
ers said thoy could not do
without Japaneso labor, but if thoy
wore told that thoy must look
olsowhere for labor perhaps thoy
would mid it. (.Loud applause.)
Senator Wright was asked for
remarks, but ho said ho had como
to listen. It would not bo proper
for him to speak on that occasion,
as ho wanted rathor to obtain tho
views of his constituents.
Rov. H. W. Peck boing request
ed to take tho platform did so,
saying that his viows were already
known through tho papers. Al
though ho was a prohibitionist
ho was not a crank, ' aud, conced
ing prohibition to bo at prcsont
impracticable, ho favored tho next
best thing. Ho proceeded to arguo
in favpr of placing tho liquor
traffic in tho -hands of two com
panies, under government super
vision, suggesting tho two firms
that ho said already practically
controlled tho trade. Lot thoro
bo two places where thoso who
must have liquor could got it,
under some such system as that of
South Carolina, with tho treating
practico eliminated. "With regard
to opium, Mr. Peck reiterated his
published viows against liconso.
In tho courso of his remarks ho said !
that tho movement of 1893 which
overthrow tho monarchy would
novor havo succeeded, if tho solid
and sensiblo men of Honolulu
had not stood behind it, and con
tended in effect that tho viows of
that class upon publio questions '
wero now entitled to respect. Al
though he was a British subject
ho was in favor of annexation to
tho United Statos, believing that
such was the ultimate destiny of
President Murray announced
that tho League would hold an
open mooting on Thursday oven
ing, when tho proposed "Third
Mouso" lor free discussion ot pub
lio affairs would bo organized.
