the present Liquor License Act of the
Council of any
Municipality may direct the Issue of

descriptions only: (a) Tavern Li
censes, (b) Wholesale Licenses. Tho
said licenses shall be signed by tho

to Bccure such consent Is an absolute
disqualification. Primarily, there
fore, traffic is in the hands of the
people nnd Its more substantial por
tion, tho property holders, nnd yet n
Hoard of five men nro permitted to
substitute their wishes for those di
rectly personally and Immediately In
terested. Whllo tho traffic may bo n privi
lege and not a right, it Is our pur
pose that tho privilege be exercised
under conditions that have unquali
fiedly for fair play and not bo dis
pensed arbitrarily without reason,
qualification, or limitation.
Again, an application lor a r onow-
al of a license is considered under the
net to the uamo effect its nn original
application. Under tho discretionary
powers of tho Hoard It may oxcrclso
Its powers us above described and It
may also do further, without reason
and arbitrarily, nsslgnlng simply as
a ground for refusal that too many
llconscs exist, destroy not only the
good-will of un established business
but also destroy all tho stock of
goods and merchandise as a salcablo
asset within the Territory of Hawaii.
I)y the act Is provided a method of
disposition of stock ln trade and mer
chandlso upon the licensee becoming

Should such a discretion lo grant
or refuso exist In any man or body of
mon? We think not, And should
nny business whether It be n privi
lege or a right, bo placed In such n
position that upon the mere dicta, of
five men that business becomes abso
lutely a ponsaleablo asset, "
It Is this that the proposed amend
ments seek to correct. And tho pres-
pnt discretionary power In the Hoard
Is'ln Itself ample Justification for that
Let un next consider the power to
regulnte and control licenses. Hero
again the power is absolutely without
limitation. In other words, every li
censee during tho term of his llccnso
mny be subjected to endless Inconve
nience nnd expense upon the mere
whim or caprice of a Hoard, charac
terized by It as an exercise of Us dis
The power to suspend nnd revoke
licenses also stands upon tho samo
basis. Not only is n licensee llnblo
to havo his license suspended or re
voked upon his conviction of n viola
tion of any of tho provisions of law
relative to his license or the proper'
exercise thereof but also "for any
other cause doomed sufficient by tho
Hoard." In other words, the Hoard
Is tho sola arbiter of the existence
or continued existence of n license.
Its word Is absolute.
And this discretion In respect to
the granting or refusal of a llccnso Is
bo great that a licensee Is absolutely
helpless. It may bo rejoined that
whenever the Hoard unreasonably re
fuses to renew licenses, or suspends
or revokes nn oxlstlng license, that
tho licensee hns his remedy at law.
Let us prcstimo that to be true. Hut
what Is to prevent tho Hoard, upon
action being taken by the licensee In
respect to the suspension or revoca
tion or his license, should ho provall
In his contention, upon the expiration
of bis license and Ills seeking a re
newal thereof, from denying such re
newal for the real reason that he has
proved himself recalcitrant and de
feated tho Hoard, but upon the Btatcd
reason "that It Is for tho best Intel -cats
of the community that his ll
ccnso bo refused."
Appeals, therefore, are proposed by
theso amendments by Section 3SA,
from tho decision of Hoards to tho
Circuit Courts of tho same circuit. It
an application for u llccnso or tho re
newal of a licenso Is refused arbi
trarily, or a license Is suspended or
revoked unfairly, should n right of
appeal bo denied? The rights of lire,
liberty, and property are usually plac
cd In tho protection of courts, and
disputes In relation thereto aro refcr-
ed to courjs for determination.
Therefore jjiiy should not decisions
ui uoaruH ue suumiticu to iiko ucter
mination? The courts aro abovo par
ty, saloon, or anti-saloon. And It
certainly cannot be said that courts
aio less fair than Hoards.
Objection Is made that the licensee
upon giving a bond can continue tho
exercise of his llccnso pending an ap
peal even though suspended or re
voked by tho Hoard. This Is a per
fectly reasonable demand. Tho ex
istence of a business Bhotild not ho
left In the absolute .unlimited, and
unqualified discretion of nny man or
set of men. The Legislature has by
luw permitted tho salo of Intoxicat
ing liquors. Tho business theroforo
Is a legal one; Icgitlmnto and cntl
tied to rights and fair dealing. Aud
