MILgS OF SEA BRIDGED BY ONE
WHAT SENATE LIQUOR BILL DOES
Editor Evening II u 1 1 c 1 1 n :
Tho unwarranted attacks made upon
those Republican member's of tho
Scnnte, who, yesterday, voted for Sen
ate Hill No. 29, known as tho liquor
bill, nrc as usual fraught with MroI
cd calumny and the display of com
placent Ignorance worthy of tho mind
of their author.
"Whiskey ring," "gin mills," and
words of similar Import may roll
from the tongue, with pleasure to
the speaker, but to him who listens
for instruction nro of but Idlo Im
port. Hut since tho report of the Ways
nnd Means Commttteo upon the orig
inal bill, not one word has appeared
as to tho effect of tho bill. And the
attempt Is made to hide the real fea
tures of the bill In tho charges of
breach of party pledge.
Tho Republican party by its plat
form pledged Itself against a "gen
eral" chango of tho existing liquor
Did that mean that the bill wob not
to be changed in any rcipectT That
Irrespective of the renl faults of the
bill, It was not to be changed by el-1
thcr tho friends or tho foes of that
bllf? Any such deduction from tho
plank of tho Republican party would
be as ridiculous u's It would be un
reasonable. The Republican party intended
that "generally" the main features
of the bill, that had for tho control
of the traffic should remain; that Is
tho local option feature, placing the
option In property holder aljulnhit;
the premises proposed to bo licensed,
together with tho majority of the reg
Istered voters of tho precinct.
These features still remain.
Tho Hoard of License Commission
ers still retain tho full power, au
thority, and discretion, arbitrarily or
othorwlse, to grant or refuso an ap
plication for a license In tho first in
stance. Thoonly change made of any con
sequence affects the power of tho
Hoard to arbitrarily suspend, revoke,
or refuse tho renewal of licenses, ind
giving tho right of appeal from tho
Hoard to tho Circuit Court In such
The adjoining property owners as
well as the precinct voters, can atlll
protest against tho renewal of a li
cense, and in such case tho Hoard
must refuse an application for a re
newai, tiio entlro control of the
traffic still remains In the option of
tho people Intimately and Immediate
ly affected. And no nppenl can af
fect their expression of desire in tho
matter. If they say a Baloon shall
not exist, the Hoard as well ns tho
applicant U powerless, nnd tho ap
plication for a renewal must be re
fused. And yet It Is claimed that this Is
a "general" clinngo In the. act.
Again, relative to tho licenses and
Mr. Hallentyne, tho chairman of
tho Hoard of tho County of Qaliu,
publicly, at af meeting of tho Men's
League of the Central Union Church,
went on record as to the desirability
of amendment In tho following lan
guage: "Hut there are some Imper
fections In tho law which work a
hardship, I think, on the saloonkeep
er. I don't bellovu, and the Hoard,
I think, never believed that the sa
loonkeeper under the law is given
exactly a SQUARE DEAL . Now
olthcft)ne of two things is wrong
tho saloonkeeper Is paying too much
or tho rcstaurant-keepor tm l'ttle,
nnd I think that Is a matter which,

should be adjusted, in all fairness
That Is one of the reasons for the
amendment of Section 9 of tho Act,
reducing the saloon llcenso fee from
S7G0 to X2S0 everywhere outside of
Honolulu and Hllo, and the raising
of the restaurant licenses from S2S0
to 1G00 outsldo of Honolulu and Hllo.
Take tho amendment proposed to
wholesale licenses. Mr. Hallentyne
"Another defect In tho law Is this:
tho wholesaler pays a llcenso in Ho
nolulu of 11000 a year, and while
tho law says that he shall sell only
in original containers or In bulk, ho
has the privilege of selling even
down to a gill, If ho cfuwog
ond bucIi containers have been deliv
ered hero to enable the wholesaler
to deliver In small quantities. A
man can go In and get a gill arid take
It outside, Just as well as he got a bot

m&hifrtMim-Mttuix rannvi ffliii lijitf in mV
Hence tho proposed amendment fix
ing tho minimum quantity of sales
In bottles In quarts to n half-dozen,
and In pints to a dozen.
Further upon tho reduction of the
wholesnlo license fee from $1000 to
(G00 outside of Honolulu and Hllo,
Mr. Hnllcntyno also stated:
"Tho holder of a retail license"
(the saloonkeeper) "has the privi
lege to sell In nny quantity, either n
drink or 1000 barrels."
The severnl Hoa'rds hIvo attempted
to prevent the saloonkeeper from
delivering, but thoy can't, and under
the law they nro permitted to do so.
And tho proposed amendment In
this regard attempts to equalize tho
fees between tho retailor and whole
saler. Why should a wholesaler pay
11000 to do what tho saloonkeeper
can do under a fee of 17G0? -
Again, take tho amendment pro
posed In respect to restaurants. What
did Mr. Hallentyne say In that re
gard? We quote his language:
" He has this privilege of a sa
loon for the full 24 hours, nnd for
3GT days In tho year; ho can sell nt
meals and nlso at tables. "
Tho amendment says no moro than
this. Hut It Is further designed to
give tho restaurant nnd hotel-keepers
less privileges. They will have to
closo on election days; and the res
taurant cannot sell without meals on
The only amendment, therefore,
that does not meet with the approval
of Mr. Hallentyne, tho chnlrmun of
tho local Hoard, Is that In respect to
appeal lii cases of suspensions, revo
cations, or refusals of renewals of li
censes, which uro certainly not "gen
eral" changes of tho net, but simply
designed to protect tho business when
once established, from any nrbltrary
action of the Hoard. It tho Hoard is
correct In Its refusal of a renewal of
a license, or In the suspension or rev
ocation of an existing license, wliy
should tho Hoard or anyone olse fear
tho reviewing power of tho Courts?
THE COURTS ARE DESIGNED TO
CORRECT ERRORS AND NOT COM
MIT THEM, and any man or body of
men who fear to have their acts re
viewed by the regularly recognized
court is and are unworthy of tho ex
ercise of any power In respect to
