Ileal Issues ileelop regardless of
declarations that they should not cx
it, and this seems to be the status
if the liquor question at the present
Tlio Ilenubllcan party In framing
Is platform declared against any
general revision of the present liquor
law. Slnco various men read this In
various ways, we now find that many
vood citizens believe the wording Is not
of right and should not be Interpret
ed to mean that the liquor law can
nut bo touched at this session of the
Legislature. More important still,
this opinion is held by very excellent
men elected to the Legislature.
The Democrats are not bound by
any Republican Interpretation, so tho
Territory finds Itself with a liquor
question on Its hands whether liking
It or not.
Some of our best citizens nre bois
terous In their demand that tho liquor
law should be left violently alone.
Others of our best citizens, while not
so boisterous, aro convinced that the
law should be changed In some of Its
details, that would not Involve a gen
eral revision or an Increase of the sa
loons. Hills of various descriptions deal
ing with the liquor question havo
been Introduced regardless of the Re
publican declaration. This morning
comes the most radical of tho lot, al
though the statement was made last
night that the liquor dealers would
make a move toward less radical leg
islation than the bill In the Scnute
with which their name has beon asso
ciated. Where this latest bill comes
from has yet to be learned. Tho spon
fcor for It Is from IIIlo.
All of which shows that Issues
cannot be made to order, and plut
form planks, framed to suit demands
for a local-option regulation more ex
plicit than that now contained In the
law, may be Interpreted with lioneit
Intent to mean revision In other mi
What should the Republicans do
about It? They aro facing a condi
tion, not a theory. ,
Obviously they should not swallow
tho Democratic law now before tho
8hould tho Republican majority
use their power to blockade ull leg
islation in this connection and thus
be assured of a lively friction through
nut tho session, or would It bo better
to courageously take up tho question
and make amendments to the law
within tho limits of tho platform
qualification, thus perfecting the law
and It's administration?
As the subject Is developing at tho
present time, It seems certain that
the Republican majority will bo forc
ed to act as the most offectlvo means
of quieting the agitation
' Mr. Uullentyne surprised many
when In his remarks before the Men's
League he noted tho points that could
be Improved by amendment. It the
law can bo Improved without wreck
ing It, why evade the Issue?
The Bulletin Is not Informed
as to tho demands or requests of the
liquor-dealers of the Territory. It
does not know whether tho Democrat
ic "bill In tho Senate expresses their
wishes or not. The liquor mon have
not been heard. They have been con
demned "right off the reel," and,
while this Is a favorite pastime of
some of our citizens, the II u 1 1 o 1 1 n
has always stood fur at least a hear
ing and an attempt at fair-play.
Right here conies In ono of tho
features'of tho present law which
this paper believes could well be
changed In the Interests of common
justice and common decency In gov
ernment. The meetings of the Liquor
Commission should bo public at all
This paper has recently been In
formed, neither directly nor Indirect
ly through tho liquor dealers or liquor
Interests of the city, of a most Iniq
uitous proposition that was at one
time all but put through the Oahu
Board of License Commissioners, and
It was possible only through the bo
crecy of tho Hoard's proceedings. Tho
scheme was blocked by one member

The Hoard proceeding as presented
to this paper was disgraceful the
product of tho arbitrary power under
tho law. It could nut have been los
Bible under a law calling f or full pub
llclty In the meetings of the Com
missioners. It would not have been
broached under the glare of news
paper publicity. V
Another feature, where amendment
has been suggested is to givo tho
right of appeal from the uctlon of
the Liquor Hoard. The average bus
iness man does not take kindly to
any law that robs a man of his right
to appeal to a court of Justice. Even
the Prohibition States allow this. The
proposal to grant the right of appeal
is attacked by tho radical temperance
people as practically nullifying the
law. It seems extraordinary that any
law should bo. nullified It robbed of
the privilege which every American
has come to consider a matter of
Tho restrictions regarding tho res
taurant license to which Mr. Ilallcn
tyne called attention might also be
carried Into effect.
Changes of this character could
properly be said to come under tho
head of a perfection of the law. They
would not lnvolvo a general revision.
It Is possible that In the Interests
of community harmony tho Democrats
will not Insist on all the radical tea'
turcs of their bill, and that the Leg
islature of the Territory of Hawaii,
now In session, would witness a ra
tional amendment, not radlcul change
of the law.
The II u 1 1 e 1 1 n opposes tho wide-
open town In the sense of having
liquor shops on every corner. We
don't believe the liquor dealers of tho
city or Territory want a return to
tho conditions of the old liquor law.
We know of no ono anxious for It.
If Improvements can bo made with
out upsetting the whole law, let good
work go on.
Under any circumstances, thcro
should bo no radical steps until there
has been a complcto presentation of
both sides. Thus far, but one has
THE IMMIGRATION ISSUE
The particular attention of Hul
lo 1 1 n readers Is called to tho ex
tract from Director Howell's report,
given In this Issue, In which he deals
with tho labor problem and Immigra
tion of Hawaii.
Our people often forget that the In
dustrial projects of the Islands have
prospered through Immigration. Tho
basis of all our progress has been the
Immigrant, backed, of course, by the
Conditions have not changed so fur
us to tho necessity of Immigrants to
maintain Territorial prosperity.
The radical change Is: that the
sources of supply In the Orlont have
been cut off. This Is absolute. As
Mr. Newell says, the barriers aio
raised all arouud us.
The only present door through
which too Immigrant can be obtained
to carry on the development of the
Territory Is European. Hawaii must
have additional laborers, and the
Federal Government or, to put It
moro correctly, the American people,
aro determined that tho future devel
opment of theso Islands Bhall not be
bas'ed on further addition to our
population of laborers from tho Orl
ont. Tho suggestion amounts to a com
mand that the American or tho alien
ollglble to become an American shnll
he tho future workman In tlio fields
of Hawaii. How to get theso people
und develop the new source of supply
Is the most Important issue before
tho citizens of this Territory today.
Tho prosperity of, every porson In
these Islands depends on a proper so

stamped and recorded, stamped a dun
llcato of tho mortgage, placing on it
$428 worth of stamps.
A Little Raise.
A communication from the Supervis
ors of the County of Hawaii, ttunsmit
ting a resolution to ralso tho salary
of Clerk KnI of that County to mi
amount equal to tho salary of the
County Treasurer or Auditor, nroiuod
a mild discussion as to what fchould be
dono With It. It was flnclly referred
to tho Hawaii delegation A bill to
carry out the proUslons of tho josoai
tlon wns Introduced some tlmii ngo.
The Reason Why.
Tho Public Land Committee, re
porting on Houso Hill 72, to exempt
tho family homestead frort execution,
recommended that tho bill bo referred
to tho Judiciary Committee, giving no
reason for tho recommendation. Thla
caused n plentiful waste of argument,
Castro objecting to such nrbltiary ac
tion. About half tho members took u
hand In the matter, the final result be
ing that tho Speaker ordered tho bllj
recommitted to tho Judiciary Commit
tee for Bomo more satisfactory report.

appropriation of money for Imple

Furtado's Inltlativo and relorendum

recommended that It be retorted to
