6 HAWAIIAN GAZETTE, TUESDAY, OCTOBBtt IS. 1912. WEEKLY.

The Liquor Men and the Shrievalty.
Hawaii nei ihas many points of dissimilarity from ocry other, place, and
iar regard to most of thorn wo havo not rt little natural pride. Wo like to
joint out to the mnlihinis that "things nro different here." One nftcr another
t the witnesses examined by Secretary Fisher told him that "our conditions
are peculiar." Wo liko to have them that way. Hut, in somo of our peculiarities
wo certainly show room for improtemeiit.
For instance, take our Delegate to Congress. Hofis now before us for
Toolection and has asked us to oxainino his record. What has been his record
during tho past two yrarst Is it one that any other tnombor of Congress of
iho United States would regard as a good1 recommendation! It decidedly is
aot. It includes everything from treachery to his party to the slandering of
tto -voters of Hawaii. Ills pride iu pointing to it, however, is one of tho
'peculiar" things pprrounding us and tho fact that wo can hear tho Delegate
talking of this record of his nnd repress our grins is another of tho things that
aako us "different." A good many of us actually attempt to bcllove that
tlere might be something creditable in that record nftcr all, if wo only had
atmiscroscopo. to find it. Some quite intelligent voters intend to support tho
Delegate because lie has turned his coat back again and is wearing it now with
iho Republican,, side out, while the ultra peculiar among us, I nm informed, lire
actually helping pay Kuhio's campaign expenses, despito tjie fnet that ho spit
in tho faces of those who dug np two years ago.
Kuhio deserted his post at Washington during tho whole agitation respect
bg frco sugar. Ho drew pay for two sessions without attending either of
them except for a few days. Ho raised a row over tho reappointment of Governor
Frcar and so muddled matters politically that the Democrats are going
to win a majority of the offices next month and, when tho thing camo to a
bow-down, ho had. not an atom of proof to back up the very serious charges
ae raado to tho President regarding tho Governor, tho sugar interests nnd tho
Ho emerged from an investigation ho had himself invited without tho
Ssast credit. Tim not result of the Fisher probing was to bring to light tho
iacts that the Governor had docs much to bring about improved conditions and
that Kuhio had done nothing. And yet, in tho fnco of demonstrated inefficiency,
tie Delegate has the ncrvo to ask tho voters to look at his record nnd tho
community apparently fails; to boo the joke.
Assuredly havo been "different," but I have an idea that after tho fifth
af. November it will bo shown that we hnvo rubbed out somo of tho things
that make us distinct. In any other place, a man who would mako unfounded
charges against another official nnd against the business of a community
and havo tho facts against him proven o clearly as they Have in tho
caso would never bo allowed to hold ofllco again, and I rather
boliovo. that, when tho votes aro counted next month it. will bo shown that tho
majority horo agree that tho sanio result should follow here. Kuhio should bo'
ilafaatctl at tho polls in November. If ho Tio reelected, ho will tako it and,
xitii. plenty of reason as nn indication that ho is a Utile tin god on wheels
who can do and say just as ho pleases and that there is no power in Hnwaii
io check him.
I boliovo that Kuhio, up to the last two years, has justified tho belief that
V) would mako a good rcprcsciitntiu iu congress. Ho lias always been enough
f a freak to attract attention and ho has been ablo to get things dono for
Sim by others becauso of his "good follow" characteristics, but after his investigation
folly ho can havo no woighl whatever in Washington. However "peculiar"
wo may bo hero in putting up with him, tho Washingtonians aro now
an to him and will havo no hesitation in letting him know it. Cupid has
Itought upon himself what ho has coming and it is duo early next month.
& J Ot
It is a peculiar thing that those who nro hading Captain l'nrker for tho
anriovalty should invito any discussion of cither "boozo imbibing" or of
"whiskey ring backing. In this regard Parker's fool friends should bo suppressed;
otherwise tho temptation to respond on the part of Sheriff diirrett's
""iickors may becomo too strong to bo resisted. This would bo unfortunate.
enn do no good and no strong reason exists to go into tho matter
ctf.tko personal habits of cither of tho candidates.
In Uq matter of campaign funds, howovor, it might bo as well to let in
sown light. It has been charged that tho liquor dealers nro paying for -Sheriff
Jarre tt's campaign for reelection, tho iuferenco being that tho sherilt is indulgent
when it comes to enforcing tho law against liquor dealers.
Now, it is not a fact that tho liquor men nro cither financing tho .Tnrrctt
sunpnign or particularly anxious to havo him reelected. Peacock & Co. nnd
the XiQVojoy liquor company have contributed to tho Democratic campaign
iund, but they also have contributed to tho Republican fund and. gave tho
latter just twico what thoy gave tho former., Whilo Hnckfcld & Co. enn not
Se strictly classed as a liquor house, yet that firm handles a good deal of
..ntoxicants. It has been mucli more liberal to tho Republican collectors than
to tho Democrats, while Bertram von Dauim, of Hnckfeld & Co. is certainly
sot working for Jarrctt, to say tho least. Tho Honolulu Urewery, represented
Jn this campaign by its manager, is putting up liberally for tho Republicans
ihjne. When tho suggestion was mado at ono of tho Republican committee
jieetingB that tho saloons bo canased for funds, Mr. llartlott, of tho brewery,
wid that tho committee could wifely leave tho snloon collections to him nnd
the committco did. Certainly Mr. lkutlctt is not working for Jnrrett or allow-MS
tho saloons controlled by him to do so. So far as either tho wholesale
retail liquor dealers' ntuociatioiiH working as bodies for either candidate,
ttd bcliove thoy aro not, but individually the liquor men are supporting Parker.
1 do not believe that they expect any particular favors from Parker, should
?ie be elected, or that they would get thorn if they did. Howovor, it has been
3iade necessary to state the facts, inasmuch ns those opposing Jarrett havo
aeon fit to misstate them. Jarrctt has enforced tho liquor law. His department
Has given every possible assistance to tho lireuso iuspoetor, to which wo boliovo
iospextor Fcniioll will testify, and it is wholly unfair and untrue to state that
ar saloonkeepers aro intercxtud in tho reelection of Jnrrett any furthor than
tlat thoy know they will get from blm tho same squaro deal and immunity
arom graft that everyone elho gets. Anyone of intelligence cnu seo thnt tho
nalooBS nnd liquor Iioutes of luue Wen kept well within bounds during

fell fnr short of specifications, but what boy tlicu suw n circus except through
tho har.o of his own imnglnlngsl Whcii the day of tho proeestian arrival, n
series of unparalleled disasters fell upon a large pnrt of tlio school population
nnd Its Immediate rclnthes. Grandmothers died in nstoundlng numbers. Ilnv
nglug toothaches developed overnight nnd necessitated nu Immciiiute visit to
tho dentist. Overworked mothers suddenly collnpscd under tho strain of duty,
and so required the imperative presence) of their boys at homo. Society shitted
from its moorings.
"The number of smnll boys who effected a surreptitious cntranco under the
canvas tent or earned their1 -way by performing valeting service in tho menagerie
was, after nil, not very largo. Tho great majority camo in by tho front
door, openly, oven ostentatiously. To mako this possible, thoro was n raid
upon hoarded treasure. Tin savings banks wero unlocked ceremoniously in
tho presenco of, nnd with the sanction of, tho heads of tho family, or were
broken open in tho dead of night with n hatchet. Sleds, rubber-boots, aset
of carpenter's tools, n bicycle, all theso became remote 'ideals iu tho face of
tho living present. Whero such accumulated treasure did not exist, there was
n sudden riso in the moral tone of tho school population during the week immediately
preceding tho advent of tho circus. Lessons were mnstercd with n
devotion and facility that was almost nlnnniiig. Chores found themselves done
without orders from superiors. Cleanliness of face nnd clothes became tho rule.
Boys clamored to bo allowed to do their homo lessons nfter supper and theo
wero interrupted only by anxious inquiries addressed to bewildered parents
whether it wnsE'. time for children to go to bed. Wo firmly boliovo that tho
influence of tho circus ns n moral force in the community has been greatly misjudged.
For every boy who ran away to bo an ncrobat or played truant to
bo a spectator, a dozen boys experienced an extraordinary spiritual regeneration.
It is truo that the awakening began tlio day tho circus posturs nppcarsd
on tho fences nnd vanished tho day after tho departure of tlio show, but then
what would you nsk of poor human nnturof
"Our children who go to tho circus nowadays arc fearfully blase. To them
tho circus is not nn event, but an incident. Its features have b'een appropriated
and fnmilinrizcd and cheapened by the vaudeville houses, nnd tho
roof gnrdens, nnd tho summer parks. Tho gift of illusion is waning among
fathers and children nlikc. But in tho circuB thnt used to come to town when
Garfield was President, illusion prevailed, nnd in tho circuses that corns tb
thoso happy places that nro still towns and not vast acreages of brick and
mortar, illusion still prevails. ,
"Whon a magnificent, unparalleled, nnd totally unprecedented prize of five
dollars was offered to any ono in tho audience who could ride the recalcitrant
donkoy, tho effect of dramatic suspense wub perfect. Tho young soul know
what was coining, but it had not seen the thing happen often enough to lose
tho capacity for surprise. First a comic Irishman would try to rido tho donkey
and bo thrown off nt the first attempt, nmidst vast hilarity Then a Dutchman
would try; bo lasted a little longer than tho Irishman, but ho, too, met his fate.
Then n clown would enter the lists. He held on long enough to rniso tho highest
hopes, but be also succumbed at tho apparent moment of victory. And all
this tinio the young soul knew thnt somewhere in. the audienco was tho man
of destiny who would cling to tho donkey's tnil with ono hand and tho donkey's
head -with the other, and conquer him. Tho man will mako his appearance in
tho guiso of a country bumpkin whose ungainly appcaranco arouses shrieks of
laughter. His rido will bo a scries of ridiculous contortions nnd apparent hairbreadth
CBCnpes from death. But once ho is declared tho victor, ho will cast
his rural garments from him and, revealing himself in tho splendor of pink
tights and spangles, rido out from tho ring amidst tho clamorous applauBC of
"And now we havo circusos, nnd glorious Eastern pageants, and
rovolving stages, and lingo tanks of rcnl wator, and complicated mechanical
daredovil oxplolts. But whero is tho zest of other days, tho soul fastened
ifs breathless attention upon ono ring instead of scattering it wearily over
thrcel Threo rings instead of ono; nnd sanitary ginger-pop in individual bottles
drnwn through a straw instead of the pink lemonado showing a quota of microbes
to the cubic millimetre that would make Doctor Wiley shudder! Where
is the tang of intimacy and participation which brought tho smnll boy and
tho clown nnd tho elephant nnd tho donkey into ono bond of sympathy f Will
not somo Winthrop Ames of tho arena give us a Little Circus t Or must wo
bo told by George W. Perkins" thnt tho day of the small circus is gono forover,
nnd that only tho Big Circus can flourish amidst conditions unforeseen by the
Fathers who mado tho Constitution? Happy thoso rurnl portions of tho nation
whero tho old ideas still prevail. For us in tho city it only remains to remember
nnd regret. Tlio pink lemonade is gone, tho steam calliope is gone, the
freaks aro gono; oven tho advance agent's alliteration is dying out."

with the poisoner," says Carl Carlsmith,
in tho' Hawaii Herald, in commenting on
what ho denounces as the

Mr. Carlsmith and Hr. Desha have
been whanging each other with vigor
during the few days prior to tho coming
of the reverend gentleman to Hono

Desha denies that ho is a
saying that all that ails Carlsmith is tho
fact that the llawnnans nave no use
for him, because they l.nnw him so well.

orator, naked him to speak at ono of the

strict attention to pulpit work, but
coupled with his refusal some remarks
that showed that lie had a soro head

What Desha Says.
"As a matter of fact," ho told the
Herald, "at tho firrst mcoting of the
