tho present system of police It Is Im
possible to enforce the present liquor

'oxlsts In tho cities of the United
States, is ono that Is n dlsgraco and
shame, nnd too often fattens from con
nivance with lawbreaklng.
In considering this subject It should
be borne In mind that there was a kind
of prohibition In' operation for many
years In this Territory, under which
there was a large penalty for selling
or giving intoxicating drink to 'Hawai
lans. In talklnn lately to Mr. Luther

that district for many years, he said
that when this prohibition law was In
force a worse condition prevailed In
Hllo than at any time since. He tald
that with a bag of sugar, a few hops
and other Ingredients, certain stuff
was brewed which from the amount
consumed did more harm than any
drink now purchased and drunk. W.
O. Smith who was sheriff on Kauai
during the same period takes the same
view as mr, severance, many oiner
men, white, and Hawaiian, have made
similar statement! to me.
From my own experience In portions
of the United States where prohibi
tion laws were In force, I believe that
a strict and rational regulation under
such a law as we now have, In the
hands of Judicious and right-minded
men will do more for the caure of
true temperance than prohibition and
will be far better for all concerned.
Whenever prbhlbltlon Is voted upon
many drinking men favor It, They be-
lleve It will help them. Many moder
ate drinkers, carried away oy proces
slons of children and tho prayers of
women vote for the measure. It has
been my personal observation that In
a 'short time many of these men be-
'.. HaaasLra . It.. l luih.Aljl
(.vine . iiu .. . n.iu inuifcn
ers to get a drink.
' It has been my personal experience
that In any community even with n
'considerable mlnorlts'ingalnst prohibi
tion that It Is Impossible to get a Jury
to convict In cases brought to trial.
This nil results In evasion of the Inw
which brings all law Into contempt. As
a people wo are In grent danger at tho
present time from u disregard or con
tempt of law. It strikes at the founda-,
tlon of our government to fur reach
ing is it in Its results.
It Is all very well to say: "Tho law
punishing theft does not prevent steal
ing." Tho cases are not analogous. To
steal Is by nil men acknowledged to be
n crlmo ngalnst society. To drink a
Klass of beer or wine Is belloved to
bo admissible by millions, yes, by a
Vast majority of tho best men 'and
women, and millions of tho bcBt Chris
tians In tho world. Prohibition pro
hibits that which a majority or men
do not bellcvo to bo wrong. This will
always mako It 'difficult of application.
This Is shown In tho way in which, in
tho past sixty years.- States havo, pass
ed and nbollshed prohibitory laws. In
1859 when John Stuart Mill wroto his
"Essny on Uborty" nearly one-half
of the United States had prohibitory
laws. Stato after Stto has tried and
haH rejected such laws. Many of tho
'Southern States because of tho negro
population, "havo recently adopted pro
hibitory laws, Already tho Rlgns nro
that tho oxperlmeht will not last long
and that other methods will prevail.
In going about tho Islands In tho
past fow months , and talking freely
With nil sorts nnd conditions of men.'
I havo found a largo numlicr, who while.
they aro hot total abstainers and
while they do not bcltevo In tho prin
ciple tif prohibition, say 'something
like this: "Drink Is kilting off tho Ha
waiian pcoplo nnd is the causo of much
suffering nnd crlmo: I am thercfqro In
favor of abolishing the sa!6on."
They seem to .ho of tho opinion .that
prohibition Is the only way to accom
plish the betterment of 'conditions.
Many of tho men who talk this way
aro not totnl abstainers, and they tnko
a position In favor of prohibition out
of a laudable. And high-minded deslro
to help their fellow men. Somo ot.thcso
who tnko this stand aro employers of
labor, wh6 feel deeply thd Intcmpcr
nnco "of their men and deslro td help
Ihcm. All honor bo to them.
Thero wero until recently among
those who favored prohibition hero
men who expected to get wines and
beer from Ban Francisco for house
hold use. The latest platform of thoso
who fnvor prohibition sets tho matter
In Its trup light. It was stated spme
time, ngo in " Tho Advertiser, In n
signed letter by Mr. Thurston, that
this was not n question of tho right or
wrong of using intoxicating drinks,
nor tho uso of them, but a question
of saloons or no -saloons. Now tho
platform puts It clearly that tho In
tention is to prevent Individuals in
their homes or nuywhero olso from
drinking wines nnd beer nnd so on ns
bovcrnges, and to accomplish this by a
federal law prohibiting importations.
If tho question wero tho closing. of
saloons, It could be done under tho
excellent law under which wo nro now
working. This lias been shown,, wo
aro told, on Kauai.
My personal opinion may be worth
little,- but stneo my namo has bsen
used I woitM llko to say that in a citS'
such as New York for exnmple much
may be said about a certain class of
saloon being tho poor man's club, but
that can not bo said of country sa

There are thousands of men on these
Islands who believe that It Is a part
of their Individual liberty to drink
beer or Wine or liquors in their names
and they believe that to deprive them
of that rlVit, which It Is the Intention
of prohlb'tlonlsts to do, would be an
art In i- -co with their personal
Mbrrty J c ts. I am quite familiar

wh.c, :sets us aa a nation Is that
malorltles often forget that democracy
may Invade individual rights and be
come tyrannical just as j-eaouy as an
autocracy may do so.
It, would do men good at this time
to read Johil Stuart Mill's "Essay on
Uborty." Thero ono finds tho matter
argued In tho clear loglcnl stylo of
which Mill was master. In reviewing
tho arguments for prohibition ho says
"they aro far moro dangerous than nny
slnglo interference with liberty. Thero
is no violation of liberty which Ilka
arguments Would not Justify. They
