BLIND PIGS CARE
Kdltor Evening llulletln:
Hero's n text for entertainment!
The Advertiser says editorially:
'Nail up the brewery and shut up
the wholesale importers, and tho
blind pigs nnd tho spenk-cbsles will
take caro of themselves." I
Of course they will; that's Just
where the trouble lies with prohibi
tion which docs not prohibit blind
pigs and speak-castes.
Prohibition ever was and ever will
be the political, actual friend of
blind pigs and spcak-easles, which
will most certainly "take caro of
themselves" In tho ovent ot prohi
bition becoming lnw In this Torrl
nilnd pigs and speak-easlcs can
not very well take care of thcm
selves now, for tho simple reason
that good liquor Is too great a com
petition. Men get their liquor nt
properly-licensed nnd properly-regulated
saloons, cafes and hotels, and
there Is not much show for the hole-ln-tho-wall,
tho speak.easy or the
blind pig. Hut, oh, what a change,
my' brethren, If prohibition passes!
Then the blind pigs will multiply
and the smell ot the spoak-easy will
abound In the land, to say nothing

If there Is no liquor allowed to be
sold or manufactured in Hawaii, the
Internal revenue officers will pack
their grips and quit, and there will

There'll be a pretty mess for the
little police force to handle.
