AMERICAN TALKS 10
Editor Evening -Ilulletln-
Through your paper I, as a prl
vii to cltlzefi, and In no wise Inter,
ested In tho liquor trdfllc of these
Islands other than to see n proper
and strict regulation. o( tho same,
wish to sny n few words io tho na
tlvo llawallana; and I wish to say
thoso fow word's In plain, everyday
Klrst. I would revive In the minds
of tho native Hawatlans the fnct that
hut a few years ago a law was ennct
ed here that took away a portion of
their liberty; In fact, It was" worse
than that, inasmuch as It put In the
hands. of another, not of their na
tionality, the authority to prevent
tnem from exercising a part of their
liberty us men. 1 refer to the law
which mado It a crime fqr nny per
son to sell liquor to u native Ha
waiian. That was the" exact law with no
frills, and what was the result? Most
al( Hnwallans can answer that ques
tion belter than I can. I do know
thnt native llawallana clstlllcd a
mixture thnt was far wnruo In Its
effectB than thp vilest tanglefoot thnt
Is sold hete inlay. And all native
Hawaiian Know It.
Then came the time when Hawaii
hovered under the protecting wing of
the United States, the land of lib
erty, the land that glvcs'e'quurrlghts
to all, tho land that recognizes your
ilghtH as a man, no mutter what the
color of your skin may bfc,
Among tlioKy rights of liberty thnt
cunio to j on with annexation wus
tho right to cat or drink any food
or liquor for which this same govern
ment gave Kg approval, through II
cense, for" tho eii'c or manufacture, of.
Now come j a man, J( G. Woollcy,
who would attempt to deprive the
native Hawallnns of a part of tho
liberty thoy havo enjoyed. Aro they
willing to go backward? Aro thoy
willing to accept conditions even
worse than before annexation? Aro
they willing to accept a cortuln con
dition that B.ivors of slavery again?
Anything that deprives a man of the
least lota of liberty In any way,
6hnpe or form harkena back to slav
ary, there is ;io middle ground.
Should Prohibition be placed on
Hawaii, the native Hawaiian will be
tho sufferer. Tho huolo will always
obtain liquor (If ho wants It).
While tho proposed Prohibition for
theso -Inlands Is new hero, it Is old
In tho States. It has been a failure
wlferever saddled onto a Stnte, It
has uoer yet prohibited the salo of
liquor and never "w,-111. '
In n fow States where Prohibition
prevails, nioro liquor Is sold than
In a wdc-opon Stato where a saloon
la IJcensed. In a Prohibition State
liquors costs moro. In n PrcMbltlon
Stute, tho",lln.uor 3 viler than else

olo In nnmo n Prohibition Stuto. In
which I can not purchase ton drinks
of liquor In ton minutes. The same
stato of urTnlis will obtain here If
Prohibition takes root. The haolo
will r;ot all he vrants, hut tho native
Hawaiian will he tabooed,
I Klnl not close, however, with
out sounding a note of warning ns
to the preseiiUcondltlon of tho Hquor
traffic In Hawaii." "From my, point of
view there are lots of needed reform,
but not through the Prohibition
route. Prohibition will complicate
matters rnthcr than straighten them
oht. The remedy for the ovll enn

at the liead of Prohibitions grave,
"Rest In Peace."
When It comes to voting on, the
question, let no native Hawaiian vote
away any of tho liberty which has
been granted him by annexation.
