Following is llio minority re
port of tho Liquor Commission in
fall as prcsoutcd to tho Somite
While ngrooing in tho main
with tho goncral report and re
commendation of tho nuijority of
this commission thoro ro some,
faults in the recommendations
find proposed nets with which v,q
The illicit sales of Saki mid
othor spirituous liquors aro hoped
to bo controllablo by introducing
"An net to further rostrict tho
illicit vending nnd sale of spiritu
ous liquors." It is our humble
opinion that sueh au net en
croaches upon tho liberty of tho
bUbjoct,und as such is unconstitu
tional, especially ns sections of
this nut are similar to Section
1 and 5 of Laws of 1888, declared
unconstitutional by tho Supremo
Court. "Wo doubt again whothor
in prnctico tho provisions of tho
act can bo carried out in a satis
factoiy manner. It prevents per
sons, licensed to sell liquor, to
furnish tho same in quantities
moro than ono gallon per month
to holdors of retail merchandise
licenses, licensed victuallers, or to
keepers of bath houses, dance
houses, otc, and whilo they in turn
are not allowed to have upon suoh
promises moro than 3 gallons at
any ono time, there is nothing to
prevent sales to any store which
does not need a license, (such ns
stores of homo products only) nor
to a convenient friend living in
an adjoining ynrd, who, ns soon
ns tho 3 gallons aro consumed
can be culled upon to replenish
the "long felt want." "Wo aro of
tho opinion that our oxifrting laws
if only put into force aro amply
sufficient to prevent illicit gelling,
nnd wo cannot ndviso encumber
ing onr Codes with theoretical
laws which upon their face aro
impracticable and therefore, nover
carried out. As long as a govern
ment logitimatiseb the liquor busi
ness, such business is cortainly
entitled to all tho lawful and
moral protection to which its
license nnd tax ontitlos it. As
long ns thoro aro pooplo who will
drink liquor, thoro aro bound to
bo sellers, and wo doubt
very much of the hiicccss in
recommending nn attempt
to doviso means to stop
sales at rosorts at Waikiki
or any of tho suburbs of Honolu
lu or in fact at any centers of
population within this Republic.
Ah long ns tho liquor business
is legitimatized it would seem
moro reasonable tor tho govern
ment to rocoivo n rovonuo by
granting licenses in such outsido
districts or resorts for tho salo of
light wines nnd boors, nnd, by tho
terms of tho license, suoh plnces
would bo brought under polico
surveillance. It is n fact thut wo
aro not confronted with many of
tho objoctiounblo features of
saloons nnd liquor interests ns in
tho United States. In those isl
ands tho liquor intorests are in the
hands of a higlily respected class
of citizens who take an interest in
making their business as unob
jectionable as possible, and it is
Avorthy of noto that no word of
complaint or fault finding has
been brought before this commis
sion in regaul to tho legitimate
liquor iutorests and saloons. The
complaints havo nil been of tho
lack of protection to such logitim
ntiBed intorcst,by tho non-euforco-jnent
of oxisting laws. For tho city
of Honolulu retail liceuses should
not be incensed over thoir pro
beut nmnbor. Whilo approving
of tho theory of early closing of
saloons wo doubt if tho prnctico
would have tho desired effect.
That tho consumption of liquors
will bo lessoned, or that drunken
ness Mill bo less prevalent, bo
causo of tho shortening of tho
hours, is ono upon which thoro
may bo nn honest difforenco of
Tlint tho early closing of snloons
in Honolulu will very much in
crease tho illicit salo of liquors
cannot bo gninsayed. If is our
belief that shortening tho hours of
tho liconscd Baloons will only tend
to lengthen tho hours in which
illicit dealers will ply thoir voca
tion. This bolief is supported by
tho testimony of tho Marshal of
tho Republic. Cortainly ovory
effort should bo made to protect
tho lawful and logitimuto interests
of licensed dealers. With tho latter
thoy aro right undor-tho eye of tho
polico dopartmont, while with the
illicit trallic, its very naturo must
romovo it as far as possiblo from
legitimate control. It does not
seem fair that after dumauding
a heavy liconso and bond for car
rying out its conditions that their
places of business Bhould bo
closed only to onablo thoso who
pay not ono cont of tribute to tho
Government to profit by our
misplnced confidence in a theory,
that lessoning tho hours will tend
to lesion drunkoniipss.
Wo heartily concur with the
majority roport that it would bo
inadvisable to adopt tho Gothen
burg orDispousary Bystem for tho
regulation of tho saleof intoxicating
liquors at this timn. Certainly any
attompt to adjust tho features of
either of these systems to tho coudi
tionoxisling hoio willdomaud moro
thought und preparation than
yourcommissionorshavo been ablo
to give it. Should it plonse tho
legislature to contiuuo the ser
vices of a commission to roport at
tho next regular session in 1898,
suiliciout limo will thus
bo given to mnko n more compre
hensive roport. "With these ex
ceptions, wo aro, in the main in

ommendations nnd propobod nets,

A FEW WORDS ON BICY
CLES AND CUTLERY.
In a Coast, newspaper de
voted to the bicycle business
we read that dealers in bicy
cles are authority for the state
ment that the business aspect
of the bicycle trade has mate
rially changed during the past
year. Instead of the main
business consisting in dealing
with men's wheels, quite the
contrary is true. Dealers are
now doing their utmost to
attract the eyes of the women.
All of which shows that the
ladies are taking very kindly
to bicycle riding all over the
world. And it is the same
here, the demand for ladies'
wheels is continually increas
ing. We have received five
of the TRIBUNE LADIES'
WHEELS on this steamer and
have more on the way. These
wheels are of this year's make,
direct from the factory, no back
numbers, and have all the latest
We have also a number of
Tribune racers and gent's road
sters, and a number of "Zim
my" wheels. This is an en
tirely new machine, named
after the great rider, Zimmer
mann, and we shall be pleased
to explain its merits to in
But we started in to say a
few words on CUTLERY, of
which we received an im
mense assortment on the Aus
tralia, which is now unpacked
and on exhibition. In table
cutlery we have an immense
variety in new and elegant
patterns and all sizes. In pock
et cutlery we have a number
of new designs. Knives to
cut lead pencils and knives to
trim your finger nails with, and
knives to cut down your ex
penses with. We have prun
ing knives which are just the
thing for the members of the
Legislature to use in cutting
down the appropriation bills,
and some suitable for the Ad
vertiser man to do his "cheese
paring" with. In fact we
have all kinds of knives, large
and small, light or heavy, but
all of them of the best quality
We have carving knives
with ivory, buckhorn or bone
handles, butcher knives, skin
ning knives, knives with cork
screws in them for camping
out or staying at home. In
fact we have all sorts of knives
suitable for all sorts and con
ditions of people.
