One of the lending contractors of
tho city Is authority for the stntC'
ment thnt there nre not enough skill
ed mechanics In Honolulu to supply
the demand In connection with the
new work to be done under contract
with the Government. During the
dull times the skilled mechanic had
to leave. There was nothing for him
to do. The local skilled mechanics Stnto is now tho liquor dealer. After
are at work. Tho harbor-dredging a waBtc o( many lalueable weeks on
work at this port necessitated the lm- liquor legislation, the Commonwealth
portatlon of twelve skilled "Callfor-as put In charge of a whisky, wine,
nla" mechanics. The contention of ( and beer business that makes of Ok

mechanic" !s being slighted and that record. There Is a general dispone
the "California mechanic might do Ing agent, with numerous aids all
the community more hnrm than over the Stntc. The first order for
good" Is preposterous. It shows on 'whisky ran Into largo figures. Deer
what flimsy misrepresentations thb by the carload will be n part of tho
antl-Amerlcnn outfit have based their
attacks on the American workman
Chief Taylor Is reported to have
been lntor lowed by a lunatic. A
lunatic is only once removed from a
fanatic and Taylor has had loads of
those lately. But that Isn't the ques-
tlon. What the public wants to
know Is whether there was fifty do!-
lars involved In the Interview and
who wrote the interview
It isn't the liquor law that's at
fault. The administration and Inter
pretation cause all the worry.

THB MERRY SUNSHINE OLUB.
Emperor William not long ago had
a pleasant trip to London. He saw
all of the klnfolks and enjoyed him
self generally. The entente cordial
finished strong. After a stay of some
time he went to tho Continent and
saw his cousin Wllhelmlna. Mean
while, Edward of England having
Journeyed id France to look in on
some of his old college chums, the
President, Mr. Fallleres, better
known as the Clnclnnatus of Ham
boulllet, packed his trunk and ar
ranged ,to go to London In order to
show that William was not the only
favored guest at Buckingham and
.other palaces. The visit has been at
tended by notable exhibitions of Joy,
and by cable accounts Mr. Fallleres
had a very pleasant time.
Over on this side, Mr. Takahlra is
telling banqueters all about how
good Japan Is and how much she
likes ub. Japanese baseball teams
have been playing the American na
tional game for tho amusement of
sailors of the fleet. In Washington,
Fan-America recently assembled to
' lay the corner-stone of future amity
King fcuward and the Czar are
holding a love-feast at Reval. They
are showing how a constitutional
monarchy nnd the worst government
on earth can get together.
The little disturbance in Morocco
nnu on the Afghan frontier is a more
pastime to prove that all Europe is
united against the heathen in North
ern Africa and that England's strong
right arm In India has lost none of
.Its strength or cunning.
All in all, and by and large, the
International Merry Sunshine Club is
doing very well. Brotherhood is in
tho saddle, enjoying Itself.
Hawaii of all the earth seems tem
porarily out of tune all on account
of the fear of an anti-American out
fit that the California mechanic will
do them more harm than good.
" A SALOON KEEPING 8TATB.
When tho newest State In the Un
ion got ready to build a Constitution,
the first planks laid had to do with
the liquor question. There oxlsted
In all parts of tho twin Territory a
sentiment against the saloon, Tho
eastern half the old Indian Terri
tory had no saloons. The Federal
law provided against the license,
largely because of the Indian. The
western half of the new State tho
old Territory of Oklahoma concluded-
that what .was good enough for

1 the other side would do for It. So,
by a safe majority, prohibition was
otcd Into the Constitution.
Thero was a loophole. The St.
Louis Times bellecs there alwajs Is
a loophole. The Constitution said
thnt prohibition should prevail, but
there was a provision for State con
trol of a dispensary system. The
order. Already the State Is puzzled
over the patronage end of the prob
lem. Corruption must be kept out.
The bootlegger and prescription ex
pert must bo eliminated. A police
force must bo provided, but there is
no license fund wltn which to take
care of It. Eventually, perhaps,
-profits from the State's saloons may
bring the needed money, but this is
all in the future.
It there is any moral to be found In
the Oklahoma case. It Is tho old les
son of the futility of State-wldo pro
hibition. Of all the Commonwealths
In the Union none has had a better
opportunity to make a thorough test
of liquor regulation thnn Oklahoma.
The law was voted Into tho Constitu
tion. Half ot the State bad never
had saloons. Tho dry organization
in tho other half was Btrong. The
Governor believed In prohibition and
me Legislature and party back or
him were pledged to it.
Yet, at tho beginning, we find that
Oklahoma has gone Into the Baloon
business. Wines, whiskies, and beer
nre ordered In largo quantities. The
thing has got Into politics. Prohibi
tion is already a theory in Oklahoma.
