A. Hocking having been a chiof
promoter Jn establishing the Hono
lulu browwry, Is naturally llablo to
have the charge of selfish interest
thrown at him the moment ho pre
sumes to discuss local option.
The principal business of the rad
teals In tiie prohibition campaign is
often proved to be that of exchang-

hi" says the owner of property in

beverages Is an enemy of good mor-

psnser oftbevcrages is satisfied Jhnt I
thc "prohi" Is not only unfair but
aocs not oDjcct to receiving ground
rent or house-rent where the liquor
business Is carried on, nor spurn div
idends from the stock.
We fnll to note that tho stock
the brewery with which Mr. Hocking I
Is connected has suffered nny serious
reverse, and If his views, on local op
tion arc unconsciously Influenced by
private Interest ho Is not' moro hu
man than those by whom ho Is so
Tho "vested interest" Involved in
thc liquor problem is not set aside
with a sneer by the sensible men ot
the community who nro nlmlng to
strike n fair solution of tho liquor
trafllc. If a vested Interest becomes
a predatory Interest It Is entitled to
all the condemnation it gets, Under
nny circumstances, it Is entitled to a
fair hearing and to Justice.
In considering tho brewery, wo
have always to remember that a very
good-sized section of tho community
does not look upon Us cxlstenco as
an evil, was pleased when It wbb pro
moted ns a local Industry, nnd found
satisfaction In the fact thnt men
gained employment through Its con
struction and profltnblo operation.
Thc men whose Interest Is vested In
this enterprise cannot, nil ot n sud
den, have become vile.
Where the II u 1 1 o t i n believes
the radical temperance people nra
making their mistake Is In heading
the movement to tamper with the
liquor law, when wo have a law now
on the statute books which Is about
as perfect local option as anything
can be, and keep the liquor business
out of politics.
The tempcranco men nnd the liq
uor men are a practical unit In ad
mitting that the present law is tho
best Hawaii has ever had. Tho liquor-license
boards are independent,
and, being appointed from among tho
citizens ot the Counties over which
they havo authority, they nro In
touch with tho local sentiment.
In granting licenses there has not
yet been n 'case whero tho public
sense ot decency has been outraged
by indifference to tbe methods ot con
ducting liquor shops. Protestants
aro granted every courtesy, and we
know of no Instance whero n major
ity against the existence of n saloon
has been overthrown or scorned.
This law has had two years' trial
nnd the people generally appear sat
isfied. The supplemental local-option
feature will unquestionably tend to
bring tho whole liquor matter Into
politics, from awhlch, as we under
stand, the radical temporarico people
are first to assert it should bo ulways
The enthusiasm for local option
seems to bo Inspired by the fact thnt
some of the liquor men oppose It.
Perhaps some of the liquor men op
pose It becauso tho "prohls" want it.
The practical fact Is that, onco the
fat of liquor legislation is in tho fire,
there is no telling where it will .wind
up. When you start tampering with
a law ot this character, you aro as
liable to discover in the end that you
have a wide-open law as you are that
It turns out just as was intended by
Local option is American when the
people are allowed to vote whether
they shall have a saloon as well ns
vote whether they shall not. The
local-option program seems to be thai
the people shall vote only when they
wish to wlpo the saloon out of tholr.
The real question for the average
citizen to decide is whether the con
ditions ot the liquor traffic will .be
Improved by starting off on a new
tangent before the present law has
been given a fair trial, and whllo It
is favorably commented on as far as
it has gone.
We do not believe that the people
of the Territory view Mr. Hocking's
enterprise as a nuisance or that any
thing he has to say on tho regulation
ot the liquor traffic Is Justification
for a' brutal and Insulting reference
to his enterprise as a public nui
sance. . -
It Is true that any free-born
American people may grapplo an en
terprise by tho throat nnd throttlo it
It has not proved n good policy tn
do so. And wo doubt that Hawaii

women to President Roosovelt may re
