THE PROHIBITION SITUATION.
The gist of it is that one section
of Honolulu doesn't bellevo It Is
threatened, another section doesn't
care whether It Is or not, and the
third hopes and prays that It Is.
That Just about solves the mys
tery of the refusal of the business
men of the city to respond to the
hurry-up call of K E. Thompson to
tho attorneys of his firm In this
To ono who likes to take a long
range view of this' community and
somo of its Individual peculiarities,
tho situation Is ridiculous. It Is
absolutely funny to watch somo of
tho leading men of tho city dodgo
tho issue in their struggle to carry
water on both shoulders in this mat
ter as they have in many others.
Some claim that they do not ap
prove the prohibition legislation,
and yet at the same time they will
take' no actloni to protest against' It,
because of thtlr fear that they will
"pour water on tho wheel" of tho,
liquor Interests., - - , I
In tha same breath they declare'
in'stcntorlan tones against tha pos
sibility of government by commis
sion, knowing ns they must that the
progress of this prohibition move
ment will mark the advance steps
of .government of these Islands by a
c ...amission, nnd the destruction of
the presont Territorial status.
It seems Impossible that those hon
estly opposed, to. Interference with
the measure of independent govern
ment we now possess can' longer re
main Inactive or refuse to place
themselves on record.
There Is also no better time for
tho men of affairs In Honolulu, and
on the other islands for that mat
ter, to declare themselves on prohi
bition, oft the liquor traffic, as
Whatever differences may exist
regarding the management ot the
liquor traffic, an overwhelming ma
jority Is not only opposed to prohi
bition by Federal statute, but Is also
against prohibition by Territorial
And they ought to say so.
This talk about prohibition legis
lation being necessary to save the'
soldiers of the country. Is principal
ly buncomb nnd Is so accepted. The
declarations in this connection have
been largely a riot of excellent men
gone wrong1. Wo doubt, very much
thaxtheir, views would be endorsed
by the military or naval leaders
There Is, however, the, problem ot
handling another evil that will even
tually .brjog the power of military
influence Into line for a larger meas
ure of military control, and that Is
the moral method by which this city
controls or fails to control the social

HAWAII SCHOOL FACTS.

"During tho last year the attend

Qlrls' Reform School from 37 to 53."
(Cxtract from letter of Superintend

To suitably accommodate In school
nil children now applying for admit

quired' and much additional building.
It Is good business and good senso
for citizens to faco these Issues like
men; express their honest opinions,
nnd let the wealthy Idealist with
patronage to bestow, express his.
Wo may .depend upon It that gov
ernment 'of these Islands by a com
mission ot malnlanders or military
men would not bring to Hawaii pro
hibition ot tho liquor traffic nor a
continuation of tho present methods
of handling the social evil.
