THE VETO OVERRIDDEN

The Ilubnto on tho President' Veto
or tlio Srtko Illll-Tlio NenMo Vn-
nnlinonM) Snstnln (lie limine.
In tlio Houso yesterday itor
noon tlio dobato ou tlio Brosi
dout's veto of Ufo sako" bill aroused
coiiRidorablo interest. Nearly all
tbo Senators occupied suits and
wero extiomoly interaated in tlio
argument pro and con. Besides
tlio Souato delegation there wns a
largo nunibor of spectators.
Tbo veto niessngo ou tbo sako
bill yesterday is given in full:
"To tbo Legislature of tbo Re
public of llawaii:
"I berowitb return for your re
consideration, Hoiifao bill 51, en
titled 'An Act to incronso tbo duty
on spirituous liquors, still wines
and other beverages made from
materials other than crane iuice.
amending Chapter 25 of tho Laws''
o lbUiJ, entitled "An Actio amend
Chapter 28 of tho Session Laws
of 1878 relating to duties." '
f'My objections to tbo said bill
are as follows :
"It seriously discriminates
ngainBt a fermented liquor im
ported largely from Japan, known
aB sake. While it is truo that
sako, under tho provisions of the
presout law, pays lowor duties in
proportion to its alcoholic
strength than tho other liquors of
tbo Bamo oIbbs, such as lager beer,
stout and ale, it would, under this
bill, if it should becomo law, pay
far higher duties than tboso
liquors in proportion to its alco
"I am reliably informed that
'nearly all tbo sako which is im
ported for Bale as a bovoraco con
tains over fourtoon por cent of al
cohol, it boing necessary for its
keeping qualities that it should
contain about shcteon por cent. This
would mako it liablo under this
bill to a duty of one dollar a gal
lon, or about six cents for each
degreo ot nlcoholio strength,
whoreas lager boor, stout and alo
pay from threo to five conts, two
and a half cents and from two to
two and one-half conts por do
groo of nlcoholio strength respec
tively. "Distilled liquors pay from
seven to olovon and two-thirds por
cent on each dogroo of alcoholic
strength; thus under tho bill be
fore mo, sako in its liability to a
duty of upwards of six conts on
each dogroo of alcoholic strength,
would approximate to tho class of
"I feel that legislation iB desir
able in order to place sako in its
proper position as rogards its lia
bility to duty in relation to other
liquors of a similar character.
" I am informed that sake is al
most tho solo intoxicating bovor
ago of tho Japanese part of our
community. A groat many of
thoso pnoplo aro of small means,
and a largo incronso in tho cost of
thoir accustomed Btimulant such
as would bo caused by tho in
crease of duty contain plated by
this bill, would bo to them a sori
"Thoso peoplo aro an important
part of tho Ilawaiian community
and aro not diroctly roprosonted

phasizes tho duty of tbo Legisla
ture of watching thoir interests
and assuring to them as far ns
possible the protection of our
Signed " SANroim 13. Doli:."
After moving to pass tho bill
over tho President's voto Eop.
Robertson referred to the ovil
effects of sako on tho natives and
said that thoy woro such that tho
government was almost justified
in putting it in tho same category
as opium and positively forbid
ding its importation, oxcopt per
haps for medical purposes. Tho
othor liquors mado from grain,
such as whiskey, paid from 7 to 12
couts por centum of thoir nlco
holio strength whilo sako only

paid G cents. Instead of sako bo
mg discriminated against it was
tho opposite Ho hoped thoHoiiBO
would stand by its colors and pass
the bill notwithstanding tho voto.
Minister Cooper again explain
ed tlirt President's iuoIimm and
nrgued in favor of tho stand ho
had taken in vetoing the bill.
Ren. Rvcroft said tlio drinkiiur
of sako had been going on long
enough for tho government to
find out what its ellects were. IIo
bad Boino knowledgo of brewing,
enough to mako tho assertion thnt
a II per cent, alcoholic strength
wino could not bo ''made from a
bre,w. Tho brow was fortified
afterwards by alcohol made in a
still Ho was convinced that
sako was delotorious aud it was
not from tho alcohol it contained.
Ho understood tho deleterious
effects woro caused by a species of
seaweed used in tho manufacture
which affected tbo brain. Tho
government should have posted
itself ou tho matter.
Speaker Nnono called Rep. Ry
croft to the chair aud said ho had
voted for the pnssago of tho bill
but now ho thought there was
food for reflection in tho Presi
dent's messago and tho remarks
of tbo minister. Ho had como to
tho conclusion ho bad been too
hasty and would voto against tho
Rep. RobortBon again refuted
the arguments advanced by tbo
Speaker aud MiniBtor Cooper aud
wound up by saying that ho was
surprised to find that the Spoakor
who was n tomperanco man and
would-bo prohibitionist arguing
in favor of a liquor that was fast
sending bis raco to perdition.
Rop. Hanuna had not intended
to spoak ou tho motion but could
not keep quiet after hearing tho
Speaker's romarks. Ho said: "If
I had my way thoro would not be
a drop of liquor in tho country,
but that isout of tbo question. 1
am surprised to boar that tho
honorable member from, Hono
lulu would favor anything that ho
knows means death and destruc
tion to his people. Tho honora
blo Speaker is tho superintendent
of a Sunday school, and as such
tells his scholars of tho ovils of
sake, aud yet ho gets up hero and
favors an action that will admit
tlio misorablo stuff into tho conn
try at a lowor duty than tho bill
provides. I hopo boforo tho Houso
ndjourns that ho will see' his
mistako and voto to pass tho bill
ovor tho veto of tho President.
Tho othor day tho Minister of
Pinanco showed us that tho
tendency of tho peoplo ran toward
lightor drinks, and wo passed a
bill admitting light wiuo frpo; it
was a stop toward prohibition.
If tbo Presidont has mado a
mistako in vetoing tho bill, it is
our duty to correct it rather than
ondorso bis action."
Rop. Rycroft wound up tho do
bato by saying that if trouble
caino with Japan ovor this legis
lation so much the bettor. Tho
throat of Japanese interference
had boon hold ovor us long enough
aud it was time it ondod. If
Japan did interforo so much tho
bettor, for right thon and thoro
tho United Statos would annex
tlio Islands or deolaro a protector
ate and wo should finally know
whoro wo woro at.
Upon tho call of tho roll tho
voto in favor of tho motion stood
10 to 1, Speakor Naono being tho
Aftor notifying tho President
that tbo Houfao was ready to ad
journ and passing tho usual com
plimentary votes to the officials,
tho Houso at 3:30 p. m. adjourned
The Sonato reconvened immedi
ately aftor tho adjournment of tho
Ministor Cooper presented tho
President's veto and tho clerk
read a communication showiug
tho action of tho Houso thereon.
A motion was immodiatoly
mado to paBS tho bill ovor tho
voto, in accordauco with a caucus
decision previously arrived at.
Ministor Uooper reiterated tho
arguments mado by him in tho
lowor Houso and insisted that tho
voto ought to bo sustained. IIo
referred to tho distribution of
J documents in tho lowor House
emanating from dealers iu Cali
fornia wines. Ho feared tho Sen
nto was allowing itself to bo in
fluenced by thorn.
Senator Baldwin said tho gov
ernment bad not Jived up to its
promises on tho liquor question.
It was understood they woro to reg
ulato tbo duties on liquors in pro
portion to tho alcoholic strength,
but thoy had douo nothing of
the kind. On tho contrary thoy
bad introduced a bill clearly dis
criminating in favor of California
wines. If tho government had
tho right to discriminate in favor
of ono class of winos, the Legis
lature had an pqual right to dis
ci immato against another, es
pecially whou tho lattor woro
shown to bo delotorious to tho
public health. Too much had
been said about this being a sako
bill and that it discriminated
against tho Japanoso wiuo of that
name. Ho would remind tho
Senators that tbo word sako was
not oven mentioned in tho bill.
Ho would voto in favor of passing
tho bill ovor tho veto.
Senator McCandlcss closod tho
dobato by reading at length tlio
document which Minister Cooper
had complained was distributed
by tho California wiuo dealers. If
tho figures thoreiu woro not cor
rect it was for tho govornment to
show it. Thoy bad not douo so
aud tho infoienco was that thoy
woro correct. Japan allowed a
robato on export duties oil sako
sent to this couutry and he bo
lioved that tho import duties
should bo correspondingly in
creased. Ho was satisfied that
tho bulk of tho sako brought hero
should bo classed as a spirit in
stoad of a light wino. Ho should
voto to pass tho bill.
On tho call of tho roll it was
found that tho Sonato had unani
mously voted to pass tho bill over
Sonator Brown was appointed
a committee to notify tho Pre
sident that tho Senate was ready
to adjourn and returned with tho
information that ho bad no further
communication to mako. Where
upon at 4:30 tho Sonato adjourned
