This Is the caliber of the people
who want to enforce their Prohibi

they each day find their causo Is

THE FEDERAL SITE.
Most everyone In Honolulu views
with considerable -suspicion anything
that Is done In Washington In con
nection with the Mahdkn site. Con
sequently, no marked degree of en
thusiasm greets (be cnbled an
nouncement of Delegate Kuhto that
ho has secured the required J3G0,
000 with which to purchase or con
demn the blocks facing on Kort
street and carry tho Federal build
ing site through to that street.
According to tho Associated Press
cables, the Omnibus Public Dulldlng
Hill has paused tho Homo. It seems
nrobable that the Delegate has se
cured an Item in that appropriation
bill providing money estimated as
sufficient to' enlarge tho Federal
building blo:k. This Is.eooiI work
and showg that Chairman Harth'oliit
Is still Honolulu s and Kuhlos
Hut that bill has to pass the Sen.
ate before the appropriation becomes
It Honolulu's 1350,000 Item Is
spied in, the Scnato by some anxious
Senator who may not always listen
to our good friend llartholdt, it
stands a chance of being lost, where
upon the .whole site question will bo
tip In the air again, and the Palace-gjUtare-Blto
people of Honolulu nmi
Washington will have the opportu
nity they havo been scheming fo'r.
This Is the most seriously doubt
ful quantity In tho slto question as
It is now presented on Incomplete In
formation from Washington.
Meanwhile, Honolulu's place In
the ma'tle'r seems to be to wait like,
a child and try to continue to be
good after It finds out what has been
done tq it by tho officials acting In
ftuhto clearly feels very certain of
tho result, as he promises to arrivo
op the Siberia. Should he fall In
landing what ho has set out for in
this respect, his vacation would lie,
TARIFF COMMISSION WORK.
One of President Taft's victories
at this session of Congress is the ac
ceptance by the Senate Insurgents of
ine item appropriating izuu.uuu lor
his Tariff Commission. In a fire:
vlous issue we pointed out what the
President expects from thla commis
sion. The Insurgents felt that Taft's
tariff commission scheme was weak
and Insufficient,, but apparently tney
concluded that to give It all the life
possible, by means of an appropria
tion, was better than nothing.
What the Insurgents wanted In
the way of a tariff commission is
probably as well set forth In Sen
ator I .a Follette'a weekly as any
where. La Follette does not always
voce the sentiment of the com
bin'ed Insurgents, but as he wag the
original Insurgent ho may be class
ed as an expounder ot the creed.
In one of the recent Issues of "La
Follette's," the Insurgent idea of
what a Tariff Commission should do
Is set forth In (he following com
plete terms; whether the Idea Is In
surgent or riot, tt is' a very excel,
lent outline for a lot of work ot tre
mendous value to the country:
What questions should n per

Editor Evening- BUI lo tin:
Thrco questions are Involved In 'this
prohibition excitement In Honolulu
and Hawaii .whether tho Territory
needs' prohibition, whether the people
want prohibition, und, last, whether
wc are going to have prohibition.
No ono will dony that hero, or liny.
where else In tho world, there aro
certain individuals who should not
drink Intoxicants, cither because they
aro not In a, physical condition to nl
low such, or because they cannot, ap
narcntly, tnke a' drink without be'
coming Irresponsible. Such persons,
of course, need prohibition, that W
prohibition for their own Individual
benefit and not calling for general
prohibition such as In advocated by
tho so-called prohibitionists. It
stands to reason that there is a man
fest unfairness In prohibiting any
thing In il general way just for the
sako of protecting a very few, com
paratlvcly a very few', who cannot
take caro of themselves'; Why should
automobiles or railways or steam''
ships, bo prohibited just because cv
ery now and " then d'ekth occurs
through their ubo? Morn people nro
killed in one day in tho United States
by the accidents occurring in trans
portation than are killed by ovef-uso
of liquor in n hundred days through
out tho nation. Tho law ot the land
regulates tho mctiiods of transporta
tion to render travel ns safo ns can
be, Just ns, In any .well organized
community, tho liquor traffic Is reg
ulated for tho protection of consum
ers, to protect them aganst bad
booze, against adulteration.
Honolulu has alt tho official ma
chinery for proper regulation of tho
liquor irnlflc, tho present liquor law
being, with few exceptions, nlmost
model In Its spirit Tho exceptions
referred to nro rather harsh than oth;
erwlse. There seems to bo not so
much fault with the law ns In the
method of enforcing It. We might Im
prove the method of enforcing the
law; wo might well look mora closely
Into some of the less rcputablo sal;
oons and among some of tho less de
sirable dealers to mako sure that
'"rot-gut" or practically poisonous
cheap wines nro not served; that ir
responsible persons are not served;
that drunks nro not served with
liquor, but beyond perhaps improving
tho supervision of tho traffic, nt:d
forcing some dealers, not Inclined lo
bbcy tho spirit as well as tho letter
of the lnw, to bcfonsclontlous or get
out ot business, it doci not appear
that Hawaii Is In need ot prohibition
of liquor any moro than tlawull is In
need of prohibition of chovlng bum,
which 13 snld by soma doctors to be

which Is not a pretty habit It has
been said many times before, In print
hero and In mainland publications,
that Honolulu for tho size Is particu
larly freo from crime, particularly
when It Is remembered that Honolulu
Is a seaport. This Is a fact well rcc-
'ognlzed, nnd where tho need ot this
prohibition, which doesn't prohibit
anyway, comes In, is not plain.
Ab to whether or not wo want pro
hibition, It Is very evident that the
present agitation Is fathered by n
few. There are n tow malo "Carrie
Nations" in Honolulu whoso ' hands
are Itching to smash the saloons with
tho hatchet ot fanaticism. Tho elec
torate majority 'doesn't want prohibi
tion, ns will rurcly bo provon at tho
plebiscite, July 26.

voters will not ask for It at the plebi
