PROHIBITIONISTS AND GOVERN

Ono ot the threats of the Prohibition
campaigners Is that the people of Ha
waii must vote for Prohibition or they
will get Government by Commission.
Tills Is on a par with the bald false
hoods that aro the last resort of Pro
hibitionists everywhere. Nothing
could bo more removed from the

Is the truth of It.
One has only to tako a vlaw of tho

campaigners aro foisting upon tho ol
ers .wham they take to be Ignorant.
Thurston, the chief exponent of
Govornmcnt by Commission, Is the
chief worker with Woollcy In tho
causo of Prohibition. No Intelligent
voter of Hawaii who knows Thurs
ton's record can doubt that ho would
use u favorable voto for Prohibition
as n weapon to nguln wago his Gov

Is the great cry of the forces of Gov

Prohibition as a declaration favorable
to an overthrow of popular govern
ment nnd substituting their schemo
for "government by n fow of us."
That Is one ot the reasons why tho
men who have tho best Interests of
Hawaii and Its pcoplo at heart will
voto NO In tho plebiscite.
On tho whole, It hns not been good
for prohibition In the West. This Is
tho conclusion of the New York.
Worldf which may be taken as an
authority ae against the local Prohibi
tion organ that discovered Jack John
son to bo n total abstainer. Thero
has been voting under local option by
towns In Hllnols, Nebraska and Colo
rado and by counties In Michigan,
with obvious advantages to tho tlilrs
ty. In Topcka, Kan., there was no dl

elected who Is understood to favor lic
In Illinois 39 "dry" towns turned to
"wet," while only 19 reversed that
process. Seventy-two "wet" towns
and 110 "dry" remained ns they were.
Decatur, which went "dry" by 1,020
two yenrs ago, Is now "wet" by f00.
Tho cities generally remain with the
In Colorado the "dry" voters made a
gain of 'two towns in 22 voting, but
tho "wets" still have 13 of tho num
ber. Twenty counties out of 30 otlng In
Michigan returned "dry" victories, but
those will closo only 282 saloons out
of 1,101 In tho voting territory. Of 20
counties, already "wet" 14 voted to
stay so, while of 10 "dry" counties In
tho voting lot two reversed them
selves; Kent County, Including Grnnd
Rapids, repulsed the prohibitionists
by n 7,500 majority after u hot cam
paign. Waxford and Oakland Coun
ties returned to the license column
after two years of drought. An In
teresting "dry" victory was won In
tt n n n ;t nnitttiHiUR t:
trial by Jury was denied. Ono provi
sion prohibited any sort of 'liquor ad
vertising.' Another provided for tho
impeachment of ofllcors who should
fall to put the law Into effect."
Such iiu Ironclad statute ought, one
uoiilit think, to lime tnthlird the
Alabama prohibitionists; hut It didn't.
They conceived u violent Jcslro to
put their statewide prohibition Into
the state's constitution. They drew
up their proposed amendment uccord
Ingly, mid submitted It to the people.
The people rejected It; tho udrcrse
majority wits In excess of 27,000 lotcs
n thumping big majority ns Ala
linnin majorities go. That mis the
first unmistakable proof that the Hood
hud subsided. Monday of this ncek
brought unothcr proof. JInllory (Pro
hlblMoiifst) nnd O'Neill (uutl-prohlbl-tlonlst)
were competitors in tho Dem
ocratic Slate primary, each seeking
the nomination for tho Uomuorsblp,
and It's O'Ncnl who Is the nominee.
Ills majority In Monday's primary ran
up Into the thousands.
A decislvo victory for temperapco;
tho crazyldcn of universal prohibition
Is passing, says the "Richmond Tlmos
Dispatch." It was Inevitable that tho
pendulum Bhould swing slowly buck
toward readjustment, sayB tho ''At
lanta Constitution," to which journal
It also "appears certain that open bar
rooms will never roturn to Alabama,
as It Is equally cordilti that open liar-
rooms will never return to Georgia.'
A mistake was made by the prohlbt
llonlsts In forcing the tight for pro
htbttlon, before the people had been
ufllclently oducated for lt says tho
avannali 'Nfews." Alabama Is glv

.'1.1 ... ..

Therein lies the wholo orror of tho
theory of prohlbltldtii It tHInkr e'
tcrnal thtnga can mako a man vlf.
tunus. We find by reviewing tno
cvldcnco of the lllble, which Is at
tempted to. be used as tho great
weapon of prohibitionists, that drink
plays n very minor role In causing
crime. Very frequently drunkenness
(and there Ms nil the difference In
tho world between drunkenness and
drink) is not a cause, but nn ef
fect. A man who Is unhappily mar
ried and who has no peace at home,
will be driven to drunkenness often
cr than his drunkenness will cause
unhnpplncss nt home, for It Is un
reasonable to siffiposo that a man
happily married with a lovely wifo
and children should tako to getting
drunk. Likewise, a man who has
lost all his savings, perhaps through
the failure of a bank or through
fraud by a supposed friend, Is llablo
to beconfe a drunkard, whereas the
cases whero drunkenncu hns actual
ly ruined a hank are very rare. Liv
ing In unsnnltary places ot toll, with
long hours ot labor, bad literature,
bad associations, bad cooking, will
crcnto unnatural cravings, a desire
for too mUch liquor. All these
things should bo taken Into consid
eration, and It Is ndt fair for the
prohibitionist to assert that all evil,
or even that most evil, is caused
by drink. It Is not fair, such a
statement; It Is not Just; nnd think
ing people will not stand for It.
Drunkenness Is moro often the
"result" of wrong than It Is the
"causo" of wrong.
When tho prohibitionist sweeping.
ly declares drink to bo tho "causo"
ot sin, he Is speaking unthinkingly,
fanatically, or he Is doltberately at
tempting to deceive.
Let us not bo deceived by the
prohibitionist or by hla thoughtless
statements. TAIR THOUGHT,
