letter to you, In tho Public Press, bo
that you may clearly understand
that tho lawabldlng citizens of Ho
nolulu are ready to back you up, as
strongly ns possible, In tho difficult
situation now before' jou. It mny be
n little hard on Honolulu, to hnvo
to ndmlt, thnt it is so difficult to se
cure the enforcement of Its laws, but
we must face the situation as It Is.
The Ministerial Union, nt Its reg
ular meeting this week, unanimously
voted to continue, and enlnrgo, tho
special Committee on lwllct, nnd
law enforcement. It directed thnt
commlttco to go ahead and work.
Wo Intend to do so, Tho right of n
few to agitato and BCcuro n certain
policy, has been questioned. We be
lieve, however, that tho great ma
jority of tho best citizens of tills
city will ngrco that tlio principle of
securing the enforcement of Impor
tant laws Is a right one, AYo also
admit that those who fall to see the
u bo or valuo of these laws have n
perfect right to agitate and seek to
secure their change.
In tho work of cleaning up UlU
town, and freeing it, to n large ex
tent, from this, which we consider
nn unnecessary evil, wo know is
hard work. We would like to have
)ou know, Mr. Iaukea, that thero nre
many men ready to stand by you In
this good work. Wo should bo glad
to recclvo suggestions from you ns
to how wo mny best co-operoto In
this difficult task. Let us know how
wo may help. Tho Ministerial Un
ion wishes to practice as well as
preach. There mo some, however,
who slnuercly bellovo that thero
should bo regulation of this evil. And
we would present to you n brief con
sideration of that sldo of tho ques
tion. KHCIULATION OF ClJlMB AND
Tho only safe way for any com
munity Is to work for tho principle
of the enforcement of Its laws. That
Is the basis of Its government. It
would bo unwise to seek to regulate
stealing, llclng, perjury, gambling,
and so of any vice. Regulation of
crime, and vice does not regulate. In
the present discussion, many be
lieve,, und honestly so, for thoy are
good men, lliat regulation Is tho
best thing for tho community. A
few weeks alio tho good Eplscopallau
lllshop. oft-Honolulu believed so.
Then ho studied tho matter care
fully, read the rcpoj-t of tho commit
tee o liftmen; regarding the seaport
of Now YorJj;,. Hu came to the con
clusion that -regulation does not reg
ulate, a (id ,, declared emphatically
that which fs the very platform of
this reform ,movcment, "that tho
laws must bo enforced, not only In
this one place, but everywhere else."
That Is a Biife principle, and In ac
cord with true American Ideal?.
Thero Is no real -gain, in tho protec
tion, largely, of Oriental persons, In
the carrying on of an unlawful busi
ness; u business that enriches somo
of the very worst men In tho com
munity, nnd offers temptation nnd
danger to our own sons nnd daugh
ters. In ono placo In Southern Califor
nia, where this great evil was realiz
ed nnd met, a certain tlmo was given
to these pertons to lcavo tho town,
and they left. Somo of these unlaw
ful persons now In Honolulu could
bo required to lcavo tho country.
This nest of vlco Is not necessary,
under our present laws, and It Is Im
possible to drove thnt It Is.
A friend, a Christian gentleman of
common tense, who holds n different
opinion from ours, said: "I believe
that rigid regulation, and Inspection,
both of mon nnd women, Is tho best
plan; keep this business All In one
place." Many others hold thnt vlow.
Dttt consider It. If carried out as

proposed, It would mean almost pro
hibition (n good thing). Thero
would not bo tho chance of bo much
money-making by vicious men,
which is one of tho grent causes of
this evil. Then the plan proposed
by the above gentleman wns to have
n locked stockade, like Knllht re
ceiving camp, with an officer nlwnys
on duty. All persons wishing to
carry on this business wero to ho
kept there, and not allowed to go
out. Persons entering wero nil to
bo Inspected nnd nny needing treat
ment wero to bo required to receive
It, In nn adjoining locked hospital.
This plan would bo regulation, but
probably impossible to carry out,
more so than tho now-called en
forcement of present laws to re
strain nnd lessen the evil. Tho
nbovo plan would really "mean olll
clnlly recognized slavery of tho worst
kind. This certainly is a most dif
ficult question, nil admit. Tho only
true way at present Is to demand tho
honest nnd faithful enforcement of
tho laws. It can bo dotfe. And if
moral forco Is not strong enough In
Hawaii to support this reasonable
demand, tho backing of ninny of tho
most Influential religious bodies nt
America can bo secured. Wo hope
that you, Mr. Iaukea, wHl meet tho
present conditions by strongly up
holding tho law, as you havo now
ENDOUSEMENT OF IAUKEA.
Wo cannot eudorso too strongly
your present stand, that this evil
shall bo met, with tho enforcement
of tho law, not .pnly nt this ono
place, but everywhere it is found In
tho town. Wo feol thnt you havo
followed tho only true and right
cource. As nn ex-Governor of this
Territory has well said: "Enforco
the law; It's the only thing to do."
Wo will give you, Mr. Iaukea, our
hearty and continued support In this
matter. It has been Bald that when
the ministers attacked Iwllel before,
that they stirred up n mess, sent the
tioublo Into town, nnd then forgot
nlf about It. Wo will not do so this
time, wo assure you. Wo Intend to
STAY by you, nnd do all wo can to
help you protect the town. Wo si-nll
keep at work.
