Tbe best thing tho Cnbinet can

People generally liavo yet to sue
tho nuthority on which tho Cabi
not is acting. Their iloraand has
coino like a thondor bolt from a
clear sky. Thoro has been no
recent clamor against tho disorder
ly character of tho licensed drink
ing places. What good reason can
be given for tackling this new
regulation ? At whoso request is
this being done ?
The nnswor to this last qnostion
is particularly interesting at the
present time becauso tho report
of tho Liquor Commission was
sidetrnckul by tho Legislature.
Tho duely elected representatives
of tho people wero satisfied with
prrHont condition of tho Falcons.
Tuo people havo not approached
tho Cabinet with a domand that
sweeping reforms should bo in
stituted in tho liquor business.
Tho question has not been thor
oughly discussed. There, has boon
comparatively Mtlo attempt to
fool tho puldo of tho peoplo on the
As pteviously stated in this
paper there orp citio3 where the
open door has mot with succesi
notably Kpriugfiuld, Mass, a city
of over ,"U,Oi)0 inhabitants, but tho
regulation was not brought about
by the bold and radical action of a
mayor or a marshal. Tho ques
tion went beforo tho peo
plo and they settled it
with their votes. Now if this i'b to
be an American colony, why
Buould tho laBt days of tho (armor
republic be marked by a display
of three men powor. Tho Cabinet
doubtlesb is thoroughly honost in
its desires to uplift ami glorify
humanity, but tho action on this
poiut is decidedly ill advised.
Unless there are fenturos about
tho liquor traflic with which th
peoplo aro not acquainted, and
wo doubt if such a condition
oxists let this regulation be
dropped until tho peoplo can
register their opinions at the
A point whero tho Cabinet is
drawing tho lino altognthor too
fine is tho proposition to do away
with rooms where Ihoso buying
liquor can sit at tables to drink it.
Open door or no opon door there
is no earthly uso or bouefit to bo
derived from this regulation. We
havo yet to hear of the city
in tho Uuit'd States whore
this regulation is enforced.
Not ovory man who patronizes a
saloon cares to bo required to
drink his boor at ono gulp. He
won't do it oithor. Tho regulation
will simply mean crowding tho
bar at tho busy timos of tho day
and increasing tho possibility of
barroom fights. Tho peoplo can
Btand a certain amount of reform
soraotimos but thoy will not stand
tho pressure of too much of a
good thing. From tho temper
ance standpoint, tho Cabinet's ac
tion is ill-adviso I, becauso many
who might approve tho action at
tho polls aio not in a frame of
mind to acoept too much assump
tion of powor by tho Executive.
Thore is a groat deal that is iu
torestiug in tho report on tho
Azores by tho Hawaiian Consul
Qonoral, apart from tho fact of
thoro being a largo number of
Azoroaus living in Hawaii. Tho
matter of tho agricultural and
other industries of that Atlantic
archipelago is an attractivo subject
for our peoplo. Tho climato of
tho Azores would seem to be
much liko tho Uawaiiau, and tho
industrial lines in some respects
identical, whilo in othors exhibit
ing success achieved wlioro our
farmers havo not got beyond the
stngo of theoretical discussion or,
at tho furthest, initial exporimont
atiou. Their profitable raisinc of
piuoapples on a largo scalo under
glass, with tho ability then to
mako tho fruiting como at any
time desired, would indicato that
porhaps our growers havo sonio
thing yet to learn about that cul
ture Thoy produce merchant
able fiber, that wo havo talked
about in vain for nearly two de
cades. Their porsovoranco till
suocess was won with other in
dubtries, in tho face of vory nd
verso circumstances, is a lesson
for our peoplo. What has boon
accomplished in making a harbor
at tho priucipal port shows what
could bo dono for Hilo, but, as
tho United Statos is going to do
this thing for Hilo, the example
comes to our kuowlodgo too latp
for presenting to tho local author
ities. It is doubtless tho coloniz
inc power, anyway, and not the
colonists, to whom tho credit is to
l)o awarded in tho example. While
it is enough to mako us wickedly
envious of tho Azores that their
chief islands havo tolcgraphic
communication with tho outer
world, yet is thoro not a beautiful
spectacle for breeding in us con-
tontment with our lot in those
smaller islands, whoso peoplo live
a "puro local lifo" and, though
cut off from communication with
pvpii their near island noighbors
f'r months at a time, "aro very
happy?" Tho principal Azorean
district enjoys a very liberal sys
toin of home rule, tho actual form
iniviug moro popular control in it
than tho Republic of Hawaii. And
thiR is at tho hands of Portugal

liuropo" sometimes read about.

equanimity tho bare suggostiou
