A VICTORY TOR PROHiniTIONIflTS.
The passago of tlio Kcnyon Hill In wmerowi li the moot signal victory
won in Into yours by prohibitionists ami lt iinKe it of ronsldornblo Interest
in Hawaii, inasmuch ns It wns tlio ulwonro of such legislation tliht helped very
largely In defeating prohibition in tlio Islands. The Kcnyon DM Is intended
to prevent the shipment of intoxicant from "wet" Into "dry" States and
III- Territories and its enforcement will glvo prohibitionists the chnnce they hnvo
long desired of demonstrating that prohibition will prohibit. Tlio greatest
drawback, undoubtedly, to tlio success of State prohibition has been tho fact
thnt immediately after tho pnssago of n prohibitory law every express ollico
becntno :i distributing point for intoxicants sent In from States whero tho
licensed salo of liquor was allowed. Through tho oxprcss companies and by
freight, bootleggers secured their stocks, blind pigs replenished their supplies
and those who hnd the prico got their privato shipments, thus nddlng.u
to tho difficulties of enforcing tho law, wliilo the blind pigs, tho bootleggers
and tho homo "collars" furnished with their arguments
against tho impossibility of n majority stopping tho members of a
minority from making any particular kind of it tool ot himself thnt tho particular
member might happen to bo when drunk or tipsy.
When llnwnii was in the throes of its prohibition plebiscite, tho stock
argument used to Influence tho Hawaiian voters was that no law existed whereby
tho "rich hnolos" could not import all tho intoxiennts they wanted, while
tho "poor Hawaiian" would have to go dry nntl iinsntlsfied. This phase of
tho matter was harped on industriously to bIioW tho llnwaiinns thnt prohibition
hero would bo practically class legislation. The Kcnyon Hill, when signed
by the President, will mako a repetition of that stock argument impossible,
hero and clsowhcrc. " '
This bill is a fnir ono and a just one. It is fair that thoso communities
which voto not to hnvo liquor and which forego tho questionable benefits of
liquor license fees should bo protected agninst other communities which desiro
to bavo liquor sold and which collect llconso fees to holp pay police, penitentiary
and. Insano asylum cxponscs. It is just that tho lnws of ono Stato
should bo respected by tho citizens of other States.
Tho passago of tho Kcnyon 15111 indicates a desiro on tho part of tho
federal government to bo fair towards tho stnto and territorial governments.
Heretofore tho federal government bus been collecting federal liquor licenso
fees in prohibition territory nnd making no effort whatovor to help enforce
tho stato laws against liquor sellers. To bo perfectly consistent, howovor,
congress should follow tho Kcnyon 1)111 by legislation withdrawing federal
licenses altogether in prohibition States and refusing to cast oven tho shadow
of respectability around illicit dealers. AVith fcdcrnl licenses withhold, tlio
internal revenue departments could assist in tho detection of such dealers and
could prosecute, if necessary, in the federal courts, where punishment to lawbreakers
would bo dealt out without fear or favor.
That tho consequences of tho Kcnyon Bill will bo is evidenced
by tho bitter fight waged against it in congress by tho liquor dealers'
throughout tho Union. Tho Advortiser has rccoivod hundreds of letters
and clippings fropi tho publicity bureaux of tho liquor dealers of tho mainland
inviting us to join in tho fight against tho measure, nnd every otbor newspnpor
has been likowiso importunod. Tho liquor dealers know that this law, if
properly enforced, will mako prohibition prohibit whero herctoforo it lias boon
almost a farce.
Today tlio world will celcbrato tho birthday of Abraham Lincoln, Among
all tho sons of men that havo contributed to progress nono is moro deeply
loved arj(l admired than bo, who served his country in its greatest trial and,
died as his work was accomplished. Lincoln has been dead now almost half
n century. During every day and year of that timo his character has grown
as history has mado him hotter known.
Of this groat man, ono of his successors, Thcodoro Roosevelt, said in
"This this boy who passed his ungainly youth in tho diro
poverty of tho poorest of tho frontier folk, wIiobo riso was by weary nnd
painful labor, lived to lead his people through tho burning flames of a struggle
from which tbo nation emerged, purified ns by flro, bom nnow to a loftier life
After long years of iron effort, nnd of fnilurd that enmo moro often than
victory, bo at last roso to tho leadership of tho Republic, at tbo moment when
that leadership had bocomo tho stupendous world-task of tho time. Ho grow
to know greatness, but nover case. Success camo to him, but novcr happiness,
savo that which springs from doiDg well a painful and a vital task. Tower
was his but not ploasuro. Tho furrows deepened on his brow, but his eyes
woro undimmed by cithor hato or fear, llis gaunt shoulders wcro bowed, but
his steel thews novcr faltered as ho boro for a burden tho destinies of his
people. .Disaster saddened but novcr dismayed him. As tho red yoars of war
wont by thoy found him over doing his duty in tho prosont, over facing tho
futuro with fearless front, high of heart, nnd dauntless of soul. Unbroken
by hatred, unshaken by scorn, bo worked and Bufforcd for tho people. Triumph
was his nt tho last."
AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE CLERGYMEN.
Tho clergymen of Honolulu havo a chance offered them now to set a good
example to tho people of tho Territory and to do somo good work for tho
public. On Monday, the members of tho hoiiso of representatives majority
will meet in caucus to dctcrmino upon tho selection of house officers for tbo
session of tho legislature to convene on Wednesday. Among tho offices to bo
filled is that of chaplain, a position which calls for tho services of an ordained
minister of tho gospel for ilvo minutes a day during the, session, thee
of tho position calling for on invocation of flqm two hVndrodytoa
thousand words, tho longer prayers coming during tho first few wpeksaccorw
ing to customs. Heretofore it has been the custom to appoint politlculparBijifs
in tho bouso and senate, paying from two hundred to tbreo hundred .dollars.
n session to each. This has been long regarded, ns, and is, "graft"; par
ticuiariy mean grait because collected in the namoj or the herd.; P

THE EITECT OF PUBLICITY.
Several bard fought senatorial contests of Jnnunry hnvo been followed
by reports bf a contest in Washington. Nono of them, howovor, seems nt
nil serious thus far. 'While thcro havo boon nsscrtions about considerable
expenditures of money in these contests by certain wealthy men, tho required
statements filed with tho socrotnry of the sonato under tho new fodcral law
show very monger disbursements. That need not bo nlwnys taken ns final
proof. Although tbo law was supposed to havo been cnrofully drawn, it is,
as a matter of fact, far from rigid in its nctunl requirements. Lawyers say
there is no means of enforcing it. All In nil it is not an effective law and
its utility probably will prove to bo that it is ono Btngo townrd tbo euactment
of n hotter statute.
Tho sensitivo attitude of public opinion is probably a greater deterrent
to men who would get into tlfo sennto by improper methods, than this publicity
law. Tho Lorimer case has exercised a tremendous influence in that regard
Such nn upheaval of sentiment wns novcr before known over tho possession
of a senatorial toga. Leaving asido entirely tbo question of whether Lorimer
shoud or should not have been unscatod, tho sennto promises to bo very
responsive to public opinion for ti wliilo in such cases.
The senate Is no longer comprised ns numerously of multimillionaires
as it was n few years ngo. Hut whenever n very rich man undertakes to
net to the senate, there Ib a likelihood that reports of unduo influence, if not
of improper uso of money, gets speedily into circulation.. Thnt tendency may
hnvo had much to do with tho recent dispatches from Wyoming thnt, while
Senator Warren, now chairman of npproprintions, would probnbly be reelected
his politirnl enemies would tnlco tho caso promptly before tho committco
on privileges nnd elections at Washington.
Apart from the Lorimer case, tho senate has hnd very fow, contests of
recent years. Tho contest ngnlnst Reed Smoot dragged along for two or three
years but tho Utah senator is now about tho only mombor of tho "upper
legislative" branch who bad any serious trouble over his senatorial title
after his credentials hnd been presented. Twenty years ago it was otherwise.
Every bicnninl period, when legislatures assembled to chooso United States
senators, there followed many ugly charges nnd in about overy congress there
wero two, or three contests for trial before tho Benato.
Just now thcro is fnir promiso that tho sonato will havo its full membership
of ninety-six senators after March -1. New Ilnmpshiro and Illinois legislatures
arc yet in deadlock and Delaware, that used to bo tho homo of many
unseemly senatorial squabbles, is also in somo trouble. But indications aro
not only that thcro will hardly bo any contests boforo tho sonato during tho
next two years but thnt the elections aro decidodly cleaner than of yoro.
MR. WATSON'S CANDIDACY.
Publication of tho report that E. M. Watson is an active candidato for
the governorship is received in two ways: among many with genuino pleasuro
at tho implication that ho is .sufficiently recovored from his sovero illness to
bo physically in n position to considor tho taking up of tho arduous work
of tho most trying office in the local government; tho other reception given
tho report, by tho majority, is ono of regret that Mr. Watsou should havo
allowed bis name to bo used, bocause, despito opinions otherwiso cxprcssod,
tho general fear is that Mr. Watson would bo undortnking too much in attempting
to fill Governor' Froar's shoes at this timo. This latter sentiment
is invariably accompanied with expressions of regret that Hawaii should bo
doprived of tho services of ono who in every way .but that of physical strength
is'cmincntly qualified for tho highest position1 in tho Territory. It Is gencrnlly
recognized that Mr. Watson has tho ability! training and high character neces
sary f.or1 tho governorship, and, woro thq -matter to 'como up a year from now,
by which timo ho should bo thoroughly recovered In health, tho support given
him would bo practically unanimous, both in his own party and from tho
Under different conditions Tho Advertiser would gladly support Mr. Watson's
candidacy, but is constrained at this timo to say that his appointment
would bo unfair to tho Territory nnd to him. Hawaii is-a small community,
but tho administration of its affajrs calls, for tho settlement of important and
complex questions, to grapplo with which calls for a man in unquestioned
physical obwc11 as inontal condition.
A PROMOTION ADVANCE.
Thnt tho promotion committeo has "boosted" . and nover "knocked"
Hilo and tho Volcano trip is ovidonced by tho victory of tbo committco in
goting tlio steamship company to alter its itinerary to
include a cull nt Hilo on nil futuro world cruises of tho Clovoland, or any
other Bteamcr which tho company may send.
For two years Secretary Wood has worked on tho Hilo-Kilauea plan, utilizing
overy possiblo influonco ho could bring to bear to got tho company
to go to Hilo in order that tho crater of Kilauea might bo plncod directly
on tho tourist map, and has accomplish results which will mean a good deal
in tlio development of tho Big Island as a tourists resort.
Tbo Hamburg-American company, nccording to its Teprcsontativo aboard
tho Cleveland, will "play up" Hilo and tho activo crater of Kilauea ns features
in all its futuro advertising. In fact, tho crator will bo mado ono of
tho principal attractions for tho now world cruise, sharing honors for first
placo with tho Panama Canal, through which tho tourist-liner will paBS on
nor noxt voyage.
Now that tho Hamburg-American company intonds to mako Hilo a port
of call, tho necessity for' making that harbor absolutely safe for ships at
anchor and of dredging a deep, navigable waterway to tho now wharf Is
greater than over.
AT GOVERNOR'S SLIP
If tho be suppllcd'with list'of mor kl"Ks nd eons used to sit in
Republican caucus on Monday wcro to a
names of Honolulu clergymen willing to officiate in turn in houso and sennto
without pay, it would set an example that might Bbamo tbo members out of
repeating other grafts that havo long been -a heavy drag on tho treasury,
upon which there havo been nnd will bo moro legitimate, demands tbau can
bo met. Thcro are. in tbo various Honolulu churches, at least half a hundrod
clergymen and priests, many of whom can 'speak Hawaiian, If any ten of
these would volunteer their services, tho call upon any ono would not bo excessive.
Every Christian church should bo represented among tho volunteers.
If tho clergymen set tho example, tho rest of us can tho moro readily
preach economy and advocate tho wlpiug out of expensive sinecures, such ns
tho legislature provides biennially. If, on tbo other hand, tho mon of God
sot nn example by taking excebsivo paymont for invoking tho Divino blessing
upon tho lawmakers, who will bo loft in n position to object to ordinary laymen

tho over-paid positions t
