TO FEDERAL CONTROL
(Continued from Page 1.)
Tho gist of Thurston's argument
was. that tho people should bo glad to
bear the beneficial burden of Federal
Interference In local atTnlrs-lf thereby
th'ey were ip oscapo from tho political
yiucc which ho insisted' the liquor deal
ers had fastened on tho .hecks, of tho
good citizens. " ' ; .
Ily a oto of 28 to 14 the Assqcla
Hon adopted (ho resolution of Smith
in favor of homo rule, as opposed to
tho resolution of It. II. Trent, which
favored tho passago and enforcement,
of such a bill us Is now Irj committee
or the Senate of tho United states to
secure tho passage of a Ifecjeral law
closing Hnwnli to tho liquor (faille.
Mr. Smith's resolution reads as fol-
sago and enforrement of such n hlllj
by tho United Stales authorities.
In answer to tho question put by 11. 1
H. Trent ns to what was the nature of
the legislation In regard to tho liquor
trnftt n W Hmilh rnnllo.1 (lint llo
had drawn tip a set of resolutions cov
crlhg this vital topic.
'l rilnnn nm rnsnnnfdhle for this
preamble and tcsoludon," said Mr.
Smith. "1 did not deem It advlsablo
to call n meeting earlier, ns It would
have been disadvantageous to tho cit
izens as a whole"
Sir. . Smith's address was well
thought out, nnd wns well received by
Iho largo gathering. "For n period of
CO years as an independent nation,
Iho Republic of Hawaii controlled any
condition within her boundaries and
made; 'such laws ns woro deemed nec
essary. Under tho Republic, such
men as Dole, Carter, Thurston, Castle,
Froar nnd many others met all erne--
Wo havo ns good men today as
then, we havo tho saino opportunities
now as then to make good. Tho fault
lies not with tho avcrago citizens but
with the men at the head of affairs.
To havo Congress step In will only
prove our inability to rulp ourselves."
James Wakeilold then Introduced a
substitute resolution calling upon the
association ,to adjourn, ns ho thought
Mr. smith had not stated cicany wnni
the meeting had been called for. "It
is inopportune, as wo have no jlcflnlto
authority foigo up agalnBt Congress
and until we tecclvo moro Information
from Washington, tho meeting (should
bo .postponed." W, A. Howcn second
ed this resolution.
J. D. Mclnerny slated that ho was
In fayor of tho resolution introduced
by 0. W. Smith. "Something Is being
done in Washington which wo have no
Idcn of. Shall wo havo to call In Fed
eral help? Do wo want government
by commission? I ft'"1! that Hi wall
has eeu Insulted nnd taken by storm.
,Thero Is a proper and an honeot way.
to havo our laws enforced, and that Is
by bringing tho matter before tho pao
ple. If wa want government by com
mission then let us talk tho matter
over quietly and not allow Congress to
tako our-liberty away from us."
Mr. Thurston spoke at length, but
It wns chiefly historical. Ho Intro
duced scvorarifeatnres which had no
boaring on the liquor question. ,
Ho spoko at length on tho yellow
fever In tho Southern States and.tho
bubonic plaguo outbreak In San Fran
cisco, which tho Federal authorities
had been asked to stamp, out. These
wero temporary measures and not per
manent as Is the traffic In liquor. "I
do not believe that we can get local
prohibition by.ilocal methods." After
speaking nt length about tho various
lulers of Hawaii and the manner In
which they tried to prohibit the salo
and Importation of liquor In Hawaii,
Mr. Thurston said: "I do not thln't
we can divorce the liquor question
from us by local optica.'"
"I am not trying to oust tho liquor
dealers, this has been handed us as u
gift. If this iB'self-govortTmcnt or free
government, then It Is a very different
stamp of self'govcrmnu'.it than I luvo
been used lo. d don't want government
by commission, neither do I with any
prohibition, whereby the whites aro
favorpd at the expenso nf natlvr up
wallans. Thoro aroover 300 recorded
'blind pigs' right hore In Honolulu. It
is ,a very dlfforent thing when Itroj
Breckons gets after culprits aa when,

Theodore F. .Lansing rnado a
forceful address. "Tho great fault
of tho present law Is that too many
people can get liquor licenses nowa
days. I am opposed to any prohibition
law cnactod by Congress which affects
Hawaii. If Congress enacts this' law,
it strikes a blow at tho labor question,
the very root of our prosperity, which
will affect us very considerably. You
cannot go to Congress and ask them to
repeal a law, when once that law has
been put in operation, without Infinite
trouble. I do not believe that Con
gress has tho right to enact any such
a law as Is now contemplated. I en
dorse Mr. Smith's resolution heartily.
I will work with you for local prohibition."
W. A. Dowen, In a short addrozs
stated that "Tho whole question of
homo iiilo was something which had
not been contemplated .by any ono per
son from any ono source. I am willing
to second the motion of Mr. Thurston.
I still am afraid of homo rule unless
wo can really act up to our own laws.
I believe that If wo havo Federal pro
hibition hore It will bo condtrclvo to a
lotter state. Tho soldiers need protec
tion. Tho nntlvo Hawallans need pro
tection, I havo como to tho conclusion

was that delivered by F. W. Macfar-
