MOTT-SMITH TRIES TO
KEEP CCOKE ON BOARD
(Continued from P 1)
enco Cooko's letter of resignation Is as
"I am In receipt of jour letter of tho
8th Inst., In which J on state that nflcr
ic.nferenco wllh several gentlemen as
to jour supposed disqualification us n
member of the Hoard of Liquor Lio
nise Commissioners for Oahn, b), rci
Mill of being n director of the Inter
Island Steamship Company, joii feel
Hat )ou are disqualified and hence
tender vour leslgnallon.
"I exceedingly regie! that joii lme
found such action necessary. I do not
wish to embarrass joii by n different
construction of th- statute than that
upon which joii nru rcljlng ns I appre
ciate that, serving ns joii do gratui
tously ami for tho public good, jou
should not bo put In a position where
vou might reel there was some doubt
as to jour cllglhllltj-. Nevertheless, as
tho press has put tho matter before
tho public In such shape thai may
place jou In an ambiguous iiosltlon,
to-wlt: thnt ns a director of the Intel
Island Steam Navigation Company jou
aro directly Interested or concerned In
thc manufacture nnd tho sale of Intox
icating liquors, I desire to say that I
do not rally agree with this construc
tion. Having had something to do my
self with the limiting or the provision
In question, I am nwure or tho reasons
for thu language used there. The sec
tion as originally dratted was. That
l.o member who Is or becomes en
gaged, or directly or Indirectly Inter
ebted In the manufacture or sale of
Intoxicating liquors should remain on
tho Hoard.' Tho provision so worded
gave riso however to grave doubts ns
to Its scope, particularly tn view or
tho numerous decisions ns to tho ills
e.uallflcatlou or government onlcers and
Judges. If tho provision had remained
so .worded theiu Is no doubt that It
would have rciched under the close
construction that such provisions aro
usually given, thu must remote nnd
Infinitesimal Interest In tho salo or
manufacture of Intoxicating liquors.
For this reason tho provision wns
worded ns contained In thu statute.
You will nolo that tho words "any bus
iness for the manufacture or sale or
intoxicating liquors" nro used. Tho
words "any business" wcro Inserted
for tho purpose of avoiding the point
or remote or Infinitesimal Interest. If
a close construction Is given these
words I hero Is hardly a person tit tho
Territory who might not bo connected
up In some oxtrcmcly remote fashion,
unknown probably tn himself, with tho
tale or mnnufnctiiin or Intoxicating
liquors. The provision contained In
the stututo wns so worded Hint only
such ns wcro engaged or Interested ill-
icclly or Indirectly In tho business nt
tho salo or manufacture of Intoxicat
ing liquors would bo disqualified, the
idiject being to.cxcludo thoso who
wcro so engaged In tho Terrltorj-. In
jour case It seems to mo to put n very
flue construction on tho law to Bay
that jou, as ft director of thu Intei-ls-land
Steam Navigation Company, nru
directly or Indirectly engaged or In
terested In the business, or tho sate-or
Intoxicating liquors, particularly as It
does not appear clear to mo that thu
Inter-Island Steam Navigation Com
pany Is engaged In that business. The
Inter-Island Steam Navigation Com
pany do sell Intoxicating liquors on
board their steamers, but that It not
their business. Their business Is thai
of n common enrrler. Moreover tho
Inter-Island Steam Navigation Com
pany Is not directly or Indirectly en
gaged or Interested In the business of
thc sale or Intoxicating liquors In thu
Terrtory ot Hawaii. Could tho con
Etructton bo put on this provision that
an j ono directly or Indirectly engaged
or Interested In tho business of selling
intoxicating liquors In tho Statu or Cali
fornia Is disqualified. Fnally, jopr
disqualification has not jot nppcared
for tho reasons abovo stated nnd for
the additional reason that It has not
Leon raised In tho usual manner, and
licnco has not jet appeared.
"I ask that jou reconsider your res
ignation tor tho reasons abovo stated
tho purpose of this letter being to
point out that. In my opinion, as a dl-J
rector or tho Inter-Island Steam Nav
igation Compa'ny you nro not directly
or Indirectly engaged or Interested In
tho business of tho sale or Intoxicating
liquors n tho Terrtory or Hawaii and
tho constructor that jou nro Is alto
gether too remote."
