intorviows given below woro pick

possible in tho words of thoso in
terviewed, tho only question put
by tho roportor boitig: "Will
you givo tho Bulletin your
reuyoiiB for signing the potition
for or against the lioensoi"'
Senator .Watorhouse: I signed
tho petition against issuing tho
liceJiRO for tho reason that I bo
liord it will simply open tho door
for moro of tho oauie kind. I am
a nroporty-ownor at Waikiki and
1 beliovo it to bo to my interest to
I keep things cs they aro. 1 don't
waut my children to grow up in
tho neighborhood of lintols and
saloons. With regard to tho
illicit solliug of liquor at the
beach of which so much is said, I
Grmly beliovo it could bo stoppod
if tho police did their duty.
John Eua: 1 bolievo tho license
should bo granted. I signed the
petition without giving tho mat
ter much consideration but am
convinced that a liconso
should bo granted. It would
put tho placo directly under
government control at all times.
Believe that a hotel at tho beach
would bo a good thing, not only
tor tourists but everyone horo.
Waikiki is advertised far and
wide ns tho great pleasure resort
of Honolulu, and u placo like that
ought to have at least ono good
hotel. I don't believe tho hotel
could he made to pay without a
licenso to sell liquors. The peo
ple who would bo the best patrons
of tho hotel nro thoso who aro ac
customed to havo liquor with their
meals, and they could not bo ex
pected to stay in a placo which
did not furnish what they required.
W. H. Paiu: Iu reply to your
question I will ask another.
What is the uso of advertising thia
country far and noar as an attrac
tive rosort for tourists whon wo
have uo hotel accommodations for
them when they get here. In all
the great seaside resorts tlint I
know of, they build big hotels first
and thon advertise, but it seems
wo do differently here. I consider
that one or moro well conducted
hotels at the boaoh would be a
great acquisition to Honolulu and
redound to its benefit in ovory
way. As far as tho Hawaiian
Tramways Company is concerned
I wunt it to go on record
that tho company is pre
pared to furtber tho plan
in every reasonable way. If tho
liceueo is granted and a good
hotel opened on the Loach I will
put on 15-minuto mifl ou the
King streot lino on tho day tho
hotnl is opened, and keep them on
regularly thereafter in tho day
time. While this would bo a di
rect loss to the company at firht
1 am euro we should hoon mako
up for it in increased travel. Per
sonally, 1 am heartily in frivor of
tho g) anting of a liconso to any
T. F. Lausing: Honolulu ueeda
better hotels both in tho city and
at the bench. As far as I havo ex
amined tho proposed buildings on
the Peacock premises they Beera
to bo very desirable and just what
wo want. I beliovo such a hotel,
proporly conduoted, as wo aro as
sured it will bo, would be woll
patronized by tourists. Instead
of peoplo coming down on tho Aus
tralia and going back on tho noxt
trip as many of thora do now, wo
should find thorn stopping over
for two or three trips. I believe
that buoh a hotel should have a
liconso to sell liquor. Tourists
and traveling peoplo genorally are
acoustomed to all tho privileges
thoir wealth allows them. They
are tomper&to as a rule, but like
to havo a bottlo of claret or
boor for dinner. Thoso peoplo
won't demean thomselvoa into
buying ourroptitiously what they
cannot obtaiu oponly and legally.
Thoy expect to get what they waut .
and what thoy aro used to huv- J
iug, and they aro willing to pay j
woll for it. Such a place as the i
proposed hotel could not degoner- I
ato into n mere liquor solliug re- j
sort, for there would bo too much
capital at slake. I would lik to '
see the placo opmied right nwny
and beliovo a liconso nhould bV
W. 0. Weedou: I nm opposed.'
to tlio issuing ot a liconso at Wai
kiki, tho same as 1 am at any
othor plnce. I am opposod to the
salo of liquor. on tomporanco prin
ciples. John Phillips: Some years ago
thero was a company formed here,
I beliovo it was called Tho Haw
aiian Improvement Company, or
something like it, with a capital
of 825,000 to encourage touriRt
travel to theso islands. I don't
.know what tho company ever did
to bring tourists horo hut I
thought then asvI do now that it
was useless to Iry to bring people
hero when we have no placo to
! put them. What is tho uso ot
I inviting poople to a seaside ro
I sort and then putting thorn
I up iu little stuffy places iu
I town? And I oay this with all
) due respect to my friends at tho
Hawaiian and Arlington hotels.
Wo must be able to show our
-visitors a place at the Beaside,thoy
all want to atop thoro and if they
can't find accommodations they
leave ou the next steamer and tell
their friends abroad thero is no
placo horo fit to stop at. If wu
have a good hotel at the beach it
must have a licenao to sell liquor
nu Zl ....11 ..L ...... Af..l nf il..
or it will not pay. ' Most of tho
tourists who visit theso islands
como from England, tho United
States or Australia 1 havo yet
to hear of a single, hotel in either
of those countiicB where a man
cannot purchase all ho needs to
drink in reason. As a rule near
ly all of theso peoplo nro accus
tomed to tho uue of liquors, not
necessarily spirits, and thoy will
havo them if thoy aro to bo
bought. I beliovo it is bettor to
soil liquor oponly than sub rosa,
and it scorns to be common talk
that thero is plenty of tho latter
at Waikiki. Tho granting of a
license to a rospectablo hotel
would tend to largely decrease
illicit soiling and placo the sale
directly under polico control. For
unn icaoiMi j. uniuiu il miuuiu uu
granted. 1 will go still further
and say that I beliovo one placo
in oach little town or village on
theso islauds should bo licensed
to sell liquor under propor con
ditions. If thia woro done wo
should hear of no moro illicit
selling or making, for it is the
illicit selling that opens tho door
for illicit manufacture. That is
my opinion on tho question.
