THE RAINES BILL.
Tho Htunos liquor law, which
was imssed hy tho logiblnturo of
tho Stnto of Now York nt its Inst
session, wont into force this
month, und so far it has not
worked ns woll ns its projector
and supporters anticipated. It is
u high liconso bill, which pro
vides that no saloon shall be
maintained within 200 feot of a
church or school-houso. It ex
pressly prohibits Sunday traffic in
all kinds of Jiquora in barrooms,
restaurants, drugstores and tho
like, but curiously enough says
nothing about hotels and thereby
created a loophole which thoso
interested in evading its provi
sions wore not slow to take advan
tage of. Tor instance, ovory
saloon that could find as many as
ton rooms abovo it has secured
them, put furniture in thorn and
under tho Now York law trans
formed them into a "hotel." Under
tho Bainos law, tho hotol-koeper
could furnish liquors with meals
but tho restaurant-keeper could
not. Consequently all that it was
necessary to do aftor tho now law
wont into operation was to go to
a hotel, order a sandwich and
whatever was wanted to drink.
"Whothor tho sandwich was eaten
or not cut no figuro in tho trans
action as long as it was paid for
and in ovidonco.
Practically the bill has resulted
in tho closing of tho ton thousand
and odd saloons in New York city
on Sundays and reduced the num
ber of places where liquor could
bo openly obtained to the city's
iivo hundred hotols, to which
thero will undoubtedly bo a largo
addition in the near futuro. It
enables tho man who sits in a
hotel cafe with an untouched
morsel of bread boforo him to
have tho tablo covered with li
quors, while tho mau who sits in
a splendid restaurant with a first
class dinner on tho tablo can ob
tain nothing stronger than water
to moisten his food.
Another provision of tho law
abolishes tho froo lunch in tho
saloon. Nothing whatever to eat
is nllowed on tho premises. Tho
saloon-keepers themselves sent a
delegation to Albany to got this
provision incorporated iu tho bill,
their objection to tho freo lunch
tablo being its great expense. Sen
ator Raines also objected to free
lunches as a sanitary measure,
arguing that it was certainly
dangerous to ono's health to use a
fork that has perhaps boon in tho
mouths of fifty people before,
claiming that contagious diseases
could bo transmitted in this way,
and it was uckuowledged in tho
Legislature that tho argument was
It is claimed that tho law is al
ready doomed on tho ground that
laws which oporato unequally and
produce absurd results aro novor
permanent. One contested issue
arising from tho law has already
been decided adversely to it by
tho Court of Appeals, which lays
down tho rule that tho law does
not prohibit Sunday drinking iu

Tho Bainos bill is tho outcomo
of tho spaBin of virtuous indigna
tion which haB latoly Bwopt over
Now York Stato and which was
caused by tho revelations of
municipal corruption in Now
1'ork city made through tho efforts
of Dr. Parkhurst and othors.
Since tho passage of tho Raines
bill the peoplo of that city, how
ovor, have just awoko to tho fact
that the farmors of tho Stato
through tho ltainos liquor bill
havo attempted and almost suc
ceeded in regulating their person
al conduct and thoy don't like it.

bill, was positively rofused vrino

But ho can't get trade
By sitting in tho shado
Waiting for business to grow.
The only way to get trade
is to jjo after it and bring it
back with you and keep t
when you have got it. Tin's
is our doctrine and we prac
tice what we preach. We go
after the trade of Honolulu
and the Hawaiian islands by
advertising for it, and we find
that it pays us to use whole
columns of the newspapers in
doing so where many mer
chants only use inches. There
is no use denying that adver
tising will bring trade, but any
amount of advertising won't
keep it. The only way to keep
the trade we get by advertising
is to sell good reliable wares,
and never misrepresent an ar
ticle we advertise. We have
never done this yet and we
don't intend to commence at
this late day. The success
which has attended our intro
duction of the wonderful
"NEW PROCESS" BLUE
FLAAaE COOKING STOVE,
is an instance of the way we
do business. We accepted the
agency of this stove because we
knew its merits. We advertis
ed it with certain guarantees
which in every case have been
fulfilled. Our sales last week
were phenomenal but in every
instance the stove sold has
done just exactly what we said
The Wonderful "New Pro
cess" Blue Flame Oil Stove, is a
coal oil stove that gives a pow
erful blue flame; that operates
without the slightest smoke or
odor; that uses common
Coal-oil (Kerosene); which
will do the work as quickly
and perfectly as any Gas of
Gasoline Stove and in the
operation of which there can
not be the slightest fear of ac
cident. It is the most econo
mical operating stove in the
world, and a stove that admits
of drawing light and heat from
the same barrel.
We have these stoves in two
sizes. The larger with three
top burners and oven is sold
at $2S; the other with two
burners and oven is 22.) 0.
