Prohibition is forever promising
ono thing and delivering the goods
or quite another. Hut there Is onoj
icaturo of tho communication that
brings out the hjpocrlsy of Prohibi
tion as clearly as the manner In
vlilch It was handled by tiro paper
giving It publicity. The paragraph
follows: , '

Jlbcrty "wherefore ff meat

will eat no flesh whllo the world
stnudeth, lest 1 make my broth

Prohibition atwajg want's to' pro
hibit for the other fellow. As tho
public understands tho Prohibition
proposition as presented by Woolje,
the Committee of Ono Hundred nnd
others, the purpose is to prohibit tho
nnla of liquor In this Territory, not
by moral teaching nnd education,
but by la Ing the heavy hand ot im

No ono of tho Committee ot One

and, Inking the splendid sentiment

lint, If prohibition passes, the conditions will change. He who sought

If, however, the broom sweeps every corner nnd prohibition prohibits,
then, the question Is whether vr not our working men will be satisfied.
Sake, which Is our .national beverage, Is used In nil ccrcnionlis of Japan

Illrthduy, at wedding and birthday celebrations, nnd even nt funerals.
At nit occasions which call for congratulation nnd lit nil kinds of cer
emonies, 'sake Is served.' It Is to the Japanese the "broom that sweeps
nwny nit worry mid pain of life." It'Is sold In every grocery store In our

Sake drinking became, long ngo, n part of Japanese life. "Without sake
drinking, even 'the charm nnd beauty of cherry blossoms Will lie lost," Is
the way Japanese put It, nnd Indeed, without It the social part of our life
would liuve no meaning.

Yit believe that such will bo the general sentiment among Japanese
laborers when prohibition prohibits. If, on tho contrary, the prohibition
does not prohibit,, the nlteruatlvo will be that they will take anything that

WHAT JAPANESE SAY
1 r .
Tho following Is from the editorial columns of Edltor 'Blicba's paper,
the Hawaii Shlnpo Sha and gives the Japanese view of tho attempted
Prohibition for Hawaii:
.The plebiscite of ' July SO Is being watched with much nuxlety by the
Japanese residents directly nnd Indirectly Interested In the liquor trade In
which there Is Invested nbopit (Ire hundred thousand dollars of Japanese
capital. The rest of our community look askance at the question.
.Some of (lie Japanese think tbut'ns they hnve no voice In the plebl
sclte, It, Is to no purpose to express 'their views. In the matter, while others
cannot realize that such 11 thing coufd be, to prohibit 11 man from drinking
unless 'he he (in offender n,gulnt tha law, suylng It Is no more or less
than depriving 11 riiun of his liberty. Still others entertain 11 n exceedingly
optimistic lew. They say to this effect 1 Uiy, no such law can entlafue-torllj-
be enforced Just ns no broom 'can sweep every corner prohibition
cun never prohibit, and, when there are fonnd more swipes nnd qkolehau
In the country, even the enthusiastic advocates nf prohibition 'will open
(heir eyes nnd the present sane nnd effective regulations will come back ns
sure us Spring 'follows Wlnlcr.
If prohibition carries, everything inuy freeze and die out us In H Inter,
exceptlug, of course, the native race, If the main contention of prohibition
enthusiasts be true. Such Is still another vlewv .
Five hundred thousand dollars Invested by the Japanese lu the liquor
trndo Is not 11 small amount compared with the local Japanese capita nt
our command. The loss of such an amount 'US' well us tho business In.
Tolved will undoubtedly lie u blow to our local, economic conditions, and
coupled 11 lib the cost price regulation of the Planters' Association, the
business enterprise of tho Japanese merchant class will rontplitdy crush
