TEMPERANCEJTC RACE ISSUE.
There nro many white men In
tho Islands reudy to help tho
Hawaiian majority throw off the
liquor yoke, but the majority of
tho whites will bo found, very
probnbly, opposed to tho enact
ment ot uny prohibition law,
either by Congress or by tho
Legislature. Tho white man Is
not the great sufferer from tho
liquor traffic In these Islands;
the white man Is the great
gainer, so far as money and
lands are concerned. Tho llq
por traffic Is a white man's
truffle; In Its abolition in Ha
waii, Hawalians have nothing
to lose and the preservation ot
themselves as one ot tho world's
rnces to gain. Thurston's Ad

One Instance will suffice for the

for Belzlng a piece of land from tho
