Official Of Planters Association
States His Strong Views
W. 0. Smith, secretary of the Hawaiian Planter' Attoclatlon and a
trustee for Hawaii of the American Board of Foreign Mlulont, will not
support th,e prohibition propaganda of John G. Woolley. He declared this
morning that he does not and will not favor the enactment of prohibition
legislation for the Territory and tha he believes that the existing law,
with the possibility of a local option feature, should be amply sufficient for
even' the extremist advocates of prohl r.ion.
Mr, 8mUh .takes' a ground practical.
ly similar to that already expressed
through the columns of the Bulle
tin hy L, Tenney Psck. Prohibition,
unless supported by the united senti
ment of the people in all districts cl
the Territory, would be a farce and
would not' be- effective.
"tfty attitude Is along the lines of
progressive control of the liquor traf
fic," declared Mr. Smith this morn-

opinion at the last .regular session of

requiring a change, let a local option
feature be Incorporated In It.
"A prohibition law In a district that
was not supportod by the people there
in and was du'e4o a vote cast In other
parts of the Territory, would result
In perjury, evasion and connected
evils. I have strong, doubts of prohi
bition legltJatlonjTjp the Territory as
regards the proper endorsement of the
law.' If any 'changes are to be made,
