Vcr Advocated, ric.
In tho Senate this morning
tho Special Commission
on tho Liquor TraOic presented
an olaborato roport to tho Sonato,
which was ordered printed. Tho
majority roport contains somo
sixty odd pages of closely written
matter, together with a quantity
of statistics and othor information
gathered by the Commission dur
ing its BOBsion. Tho majority ro
port is signed by five mombors of
tho Commissioned is accompani
ed by two Acts drafted by thorn
nnd a Joint Resolution. Tim Inf.
tor authorizes tho appointment of
a Commission of threo persons to
continuo tlio work for tho next
two years and roport to tho noxt
Legislature. Of tho two Acts ac
companying the roport ono pro
vides for nn additional duty on
said or all wines not mado from
tho grnpo; tho othor amends tho
existing liquor laws in accordance
with the recommendations of tho
Commission printed below:
Your Commission fool thnt on
many accounts rrdical changes at
tho presont timo aro inoxpediout
and that tho adoption of either
the Gothonborg or Dispensary
system complete, as developed
and working in tho countrios of
thoir origin, would not suit con
ditions in Hawaii. If it woro pos
sible to introduce either plau, it
must bo with modifications suited
to our mixed population. Such
modifications can bo mado only
after a careful study and consul
tation, and sufficient timo has not
olapsed sinco it was possiblo to
got digests of tho systems before
tlio Commission for such work.
No such plan has been prepared
and your Commission is not
therefore ready to recommoud any
definite, entire and absolute
chango from thnt now in vogue.
Thoro nro certain minor chnngos
which, however, appear both
foasiblo and hi lino with restric
tion of tho ovil to bo remedied.
Saloons should bo de
creased in number, not bo
opened oarlior than (5:30 a
ra. and closo not later than 8 n.
in., not bo opened at nil on Sun-
aays, Holidays or any general or
othor election dnv. nnd nlwavn
close on order of tho Marshal
when occasion requires. Thoy
should communicate with a public
Btroot directly and any soorot or
unusual avenuo of approach
should bo visited with severe pen
alties. Suri'uib abutting them
from tho view of tho street Bhould
bo abolished and all games and
music Bhould bo prohibited.
Tho law providing for a "Deal
er's Liconso" should bo so chang
ed as to permit of sales for medi
cinal purposes, upon tho pro
scription of u liconsed physician.
At tho snmo timo tho laws re
garding illicit soiling should bo
made moro stringent. As nn in
ducomout for informing, a largo
proportion of tho fino might bo
paid over to lnfoimois. Proof of
illicit dealing should bo miulo
easier and thoroforo moro of tho
burden of proof might bo placed
on tho dofondnut.
