CONCESSION BY EXECUTIVE
New Regulations to Apply to All Saloons
at One Time.
Members of Government Disclaim Acting on
Their Private Ylews Why Minister Da
mon Changed His Attitude.
It was decided by tho Executive
Council this morning to go slow
with now conditions for Baloon
licenses. Licenses falling duo fcr
ronowal now aro to havo a clamo
inserted, making them subject to
such regulations us tho Minister
of tho Interior, with tho approval
of tho Cabiuot, may prescribe nud
promulgate. In tho moau time
tho whole matter of additional
restrictions is to bo thoroughly
canvassed. As Mr. Damon put it,
at tho Executive Council meeting
this morning, tho quostion should
bo well thrashed out before do
finite action bo takon. Whatever
new rogulations may bo formu
lated, tlioy will bo promulgated
first and then, at tho begiuuiug of
next yoar, apply to all saloons
simultaneously in accordance with
tho clause in tho liconscB already
This action was takon upon tho
representations of Moasrs. Hatch
and Thurston before tho Council
this morning. They pointed out
that one liconso rouewal was grant
ed only a fow weeks ugo without
tho coudition of "tho opou door,"
which gavo that saloon a handi
cap ovorothtr saloons having thut
condition put in their lico see
Mr. Thurston, in answer to a
quastion by Presidont Dole, as to
how tho open door would injuri
ously affect other businesses in the
noighborhood of saloons, cited the
case of his own refusal, when
Ministor of tho Interior, to grant
a liconso to Bradley for a saloon
whoro tho Hobron drugstore now
stands. He refused it on tho
strength of a petition signed by
business mon situated on all Bides,
who repreaontod that tho saloon
would drivo custom avay
from their stores.
Attorney Oenoral Smith inter
rupted, saying the difforont posi
tions assumed by counsel for tho
liquor party wero inconsistent.
If tho sight of intoxicaiod mon
going in and out of a saloon drovo
customers away from adjacent
stores, then the open door ought to
diminish tho evil in quostion by
reducing tho liability of thoro bo
ing, intoxicated persons froqucnt
ing tho baloon.
Mr. Thurston retorted that ho
had boon answering a question
given by tho Presidont, and tho
point indo was entirely diatiuct
from time whioh tho Attorney
General put in opposition to it.
Thoro wob" a groat difforonco with
a woman botwoon only knowing
that a mouse was iu the room and
actually seoing tho inouso running
across tho room. So there was a
difforonco botwoon a woman's
knowing that druuken men were
ou tho othor sido of a ecroon and
hor being loorod nt through an
open door by men drinking at a
Presidont Dole took occasion to
say that no mombor of tho Execu
tive, and ho wanted tho statement
applied to himself in particular,
hud or claimed tho right to act iu
this matter upon his own private
opinion of tho liquor traffic,
r tho question of prohibition.
Thoy wero entirely govorned by
their sonso of tho Executive's ros-
tonsibility for tho preservation of
aw and order.
Mr. Cooper ejaculated "Kokual"
the native exclamation of assout.
Mr. Damon said that all along
ho had conaiatontly opposed any
changes in tho conditions of the
liquor business which wero not
ordered by tho Legislature. Tho
recent disturbances in tho streets,
togethor with tho related fact of
a largo garrison being stationed
here, however, had led him to
como over to tho President's viow
of the matter.
Mr. Smith intervened to say that
tho presence of tho United States
garrison had not had anything
to do with tho case. Tho question
of additional restrictions camo up
long before in other connections,
and had acquired fresh vitality
from tho discussions of tho now
wino and beor licenses.
Mr. Damon, with the corrobora
tion of tho Presidont, ronowed his
statemout as to his own attitude.
Ho had been porfectly consistent
throughout, first iu opposing and
then in supporting new restric
To-day's liko Friday's hearing
was rather informal. Mr. Thurs
'on had not had timo to proparo a
stntemont of objections for his

iu his absuuen ho is jjoing to Ha
waii tomorrow tho Cabinet could
give tho mattora thorough hearing.
