PROHIBITIONISTS AND HAWAII.
"Prohibition bills are sleeping" Is
the message that comes aer tho
They ought to bo deader than Hec
tor's pup after tho .coroner got
through with him.
Indeed tho revival of the Prohibi
tion bills In their application to Ha
waii Is about the most perfect Insult
to tho people of these Islands that
could be Imagined. It shows tho cal
iber of tho Prohibition outllt and gives
iv clearer Idea of why they arc so
lly bringing theso bills or tho bill
that proposes Prohibition for Hawaii
to tho front, the Prohibitionists uro
making a vicious attack on Hawaii's
privilege of self government; they
aro flaunting tho sneer of Incompe
tence In tho face of tho electorate;
they nre entitled to neither respect
for Integrity of their motives nor
honor for the loyalty they aro pre
sumed to bear the principles o'n which
the government of our common coun
try is foundnl.
. ANOTHER JOKER.
It must bo remembered in connec
tion with tho McCrosson bill, an
amended by tho Governor, that as
soon as tho ditch company has
brought tho water to Its destination,
tho Irrigation company Is entitled to
the use and possession of tho gocrn
ment lands, to be turned over to It by
the executive, with tho privilege of
holding them or renting them to tho
plantations UNTIL such tlmo ns tho
homesteader appears and demands a
home, and Is willing to tako a homo
with water at n flguro fixed by arbi
tration between tho government and
tho water company.
In other words, the bill Is so ad
justed that It is to tho Interest of the
plantations nnd the McCrossnn end of
It to stand tho homesteader off ns
long ns possible, and If ho still In
sists upon taking up land and agrees
to the prico for water, to freczo him
out ns Ronn ns possible
Tho plantation Is the customer nnd
tho best customer and tho surest pay,
and will give tho least bother for It
will take tho water In largo blocks.
Therefore, tho ditch company will
naturally prefer plantations to home
On tho other band, bo far as tho
plantation is concerned, every homo
Btcadcr who nppcurs means that much
less water for tho plantation, so that
tho bill, us framed, might well bo
stamped us one designed to muko tho
homesteader an Intruder on tho pub
lic lands, n nuisance to bo got rid of.
That Is ono reason why tho McCros
soii bill ns amended Is declared to bo
wrong In principle
THE ADVERTISER AND
Tho Advertiser seems to bo hack
ing tho McCrosson bill, but, evidently,
Is doing so with u lump In Its throat.
It mildly Riiggcsts that as the Mc
Crosson bill Is designed to make tho
desert blossom iib tho rose, that cer
tainly it should not bo killed on sight,
us suggested in the Bulletin.
Probably wo could mako tho desert
blossom us tho rose If wo let In two
hundred and fifty thousand more Jap
anese. Everybody on tho Insldo with
land to bo developed, work to bo done,
enterprises to be started, would prof
it for the tlmo being by such an In
flux of labor and many lands now dry
us deserts would blossom iib tho rose.
The trouble would begin lifter tho
roso hud got through blossoming
As Darius Green suld In reference
to his flying machine tho Hying was
ull right, tho trouble began when ho
lit. So too with, the McCrosson bill
It wlU,be the llglulngporlod that will
open nit? eyes. '
The ofil ndageof "I-ook before you
leap" Is to tho'polnt.' Meanwhile what
has tho Advertiser to say us to the
different reaturosjifjhat bllf thiit ul-
