JANUARY 18, 1918. ...
KUMO( shapes up beautifully in practise in
the' prohibition game,' but every time he
comet to bat in actual performance he fan.
- His attitude tbvrards the chamber of commerce
resolution is to be regreUed, particularly for Ku
." Wo'a own sake, because his protestations of food
;- faith in a desire to help his own people by elimi
i. nating booze have been taken at face value, time
after time top td this time. Even the fact that he
has invariably found occasion heretofore to permit
'. technicality td pot him oil record against prohibi
tion when his attitude really counted had not whol
' ly shaken the confidence many have had in him.
The'Dcle'lt pOStrtonr ia as hard to grasp as is
' " that assumed by. the commanding general of the
' department, This latter officer of the government
refuses either to endorse or condemn the request
jf the chamber of commerce that the President
exercise his right under the Selective Service Act
to proclaim pahu a dry territory during the period
' "of the war.' He takes the stand that this is a mat
7 ter to be decided by the civilians and is something
; which does not concern him as commander of the
. regular forces, an extraordinary attitude, surely.
. The power which the President is asked to in
voke was voted to him as Commander-in-chief of
the American Army and as a military measure, an
extraordinary law necessitated by the war. The
. action of the chamber of commerce here is taken
solely because of the presence on Oahu of several
thousand menf the regular army, whom it is de
sired tQ protect. Such protection is desired as a
military, necessity by the President and by every
' patriotic, ipan ;.whp beHeves in going the limit to
ibcat the, Hubs.- , The secretary of war has called
. upon the jcjvjil administrations to do whatever is
within their power to aid the army, in the suppres
sion of the booze trade among soldiers and of the
traffic in vice, implying by his request that the
army may? be depended upon to lead the way in
. such suppression. And yet, General Wisser be
lieve qt, to be none of his business; as commander
of the Hawaiian department, whether the booze
, trafficv. among , his own men is suppressed in the
only possible way or not! At least he refuses to
; endorse a request to the President that it be sup
Kuhio differs from the general in theory but sup
ports him in practise. The Delegate believes that
we should not call upon the President for his help
in handling yever, sir hat . we all know is beyond our
own accomplishment.' He believes in going about
.half way in prohibitw&v throwing all the business
5nto Hi1 Pkp?-?f ?n
only thdse;tv hTic ha afford to imporCther
own stocks or rVhd "are 'small- enough to become
patrons of the illicit dealers. He places his "home
rule" theory 'ahead of the' plain, patriotic require
ments of theUimes.- '
. , Apparently Neither the Delegate nor the depart
ment commander have grasped the fact that this
is a war-time, patriotic question, to be settled for
..the benefit pi the soldiers in training and in garri
son here. It is no more a purely civilian matter
than the cleaning up of Seattle was, and Major
General Greene showed no hesitancy in declaring
. himself there for thefprotectkn of the men at Camp
Lewis'. It is no more a civilian concern than the
vice and booze situation in Newport, in which
Secretary of the Navy Daniels took a prompt hand.
It is no more a matter to be settled only by the
civilians of Honolulu than the cleaning up of El
' . Paso was a: matter for F.I Pasans alone, and the
- late Major General Funston made that very plain.
In the same way, the Delegate ought to know
that th,f(rpatjer referred to the President in no
wise clashes with his "home rule" policy. The
fact of the war has swept that policy aside, just
.".'..as it has the policy of the right of the individual
,"-.. to govern his own life, the right of the individual
, corporation to own and operate a railroad, the
I right of the shipowner to charter his vessel to
- j Whom he will and the right of American youths to
V elect whether to become soldiers or not.
5 v' This is war, gentlemen, and in war America ex
v pects every man to do his duty, whether he likes
' -: it or not.
People Are Saving
IT has been pointed out as evidence of how
strongly the duty of saving had been impress
led upon the F.nglish people by the war-savings
y campaign in that country that in the year 1916,
although purchasing billions of dollars of war
, .Ixwidrt, he rnal savings-bank depositors in Eng
; land 'increased their deposits in savings banks
r , over $60,000,(X)0, this in face of the fact that the
, English have Uen noted as a spending rather than
zs a saving people.
.'- . " It seems that a similar process has taken place
in America Two great Liberty Loans were float
v,'Ct in the ear just closing, and nearly $6,000,000,
; (XX) of Liberty Loan lionds were purchased by the
' people. Vet instead of being depleted the savings-
hanks depu-its of the couutry have been increased.
The president of one of the large New York sav
ings bank is quoted as saying on December 20,
','.' "One of the most remarkable things about the
V Liberty Loan campaigns is the small effect they
; have had on the savings banks accounts, which
nliow an increasf. This we lay to the appeals
made to 'the American people to purchase the
. bonds out of their earnings, paying for them from
. ' week to week or from month to month. The peo
ple appear to be doing as they have been urged,
,,' purchasing the botfcls from current savings."
Question '6fl&or$3': lfs$
RECOGNITION ;of the vital necessity of, an
fdeate Mppfy of latior VfoV agricultural
pursuits in order that there. may S& falling off
of the food supply of the 'nation i W its' 'citizens',
its soldiers and sailors and a urjli$ which imay
go to the Allies is spreading! ' l U generally ad
mitted there are only a very few real remedies.
One of these is exemption irony the draft of farm
labor or, a parole from the draft"hile ,sucH labor
makes good in agricultural frxleavory otherwise
the army. A second proposal is totiscrlption of
labor for the farms, the aiiie'';whlchvii the
farmer demands skilled labor and. "wijl not pay
the price whleh'skilted labor can secure In num
bers of other industries. Athird 'suggestion is the
importation of labor, preferably Chinese, since
the Chinese make satisfactory laborers 'on farms
and plantations. Thus the Chinese .would release
to other fields of endeavor in whi$h. higher wages
are paid men who must otherwise- be engaged in
the production of food and foM&Offsr ;
The cry of "Chinese cheap laboi carries no ter
rors at this time. ,The supply of labor , is far be
low present demands and before we are through
with this war such conditions, will be much fur
ther aggravated. With additions to the draft will
come, further withdrawals'"'fr6m the farms and
plantations. There, must be found a 'way, to re
plenish labor from such losses. "Why not Chi
nese?" is asked more and rnoft frequently.
One proposal, the Californian, for bringing such
labor here under deportation rule has much in it
which is not satisfactory to Hawaii nei. To bring
several thousand men, without, wives or families,
has been tried here and it Means increases in dis
order and in crime. Witness the, Filipinos-who
supply the greatest number of. offenses of violence
in these Islands, court statistics show. It ,1s de
sirable that men of any nationalities should have
the restraining influence of family ties to hold
them in bound. The California; proposal 'does not
countenance, this. Labor of that class would be
far and away better than Filipino labor, but would
not be .satisfactory and bo 'efficient as it might
be. v - , x- 3. ' v- '; ' '-:
There probability latJthis time' that Chines
immigration will be permitted under certain rules
and restrictions and the .hope may be expressed
that the rules and restrictions will not be such as
to retroact against the possible benefits , which
might accrue. ' ' !-'

all the crooks of the State' are to be photographed
and finger-pruTted and the data placed in the hands
of the police of all the citiei of the State. Clar
ence Merrill of the Berkeley poljce department has
been placed in charge of the bureau and he, with
his assistants, is now instructing the police of Cal
ifornia in the very elementary matter of taking
the finger prints of convicted criminals.
There should be such a bureau for . Hawaii,
where, because of our large Oriental population,
the matter of positive identification is otherwise so
difficult. Any school boy of normal mentality
could learn to take and classify finger prints with
fn a week. Even our chief of detectives could
grasp the matter of classifying finger prints, if he
could get someone to write down the figures and
letters for him and properly index them.
Several years ago Sheriff Jarrett started the
matter of establishing an identification bureau, for
Oahu, but it has been allowed to die down. We
suspect that the main idea for permitting the sug
gestion to lapse since Jarrett's time is because.
through such a system it would be possible to
keep a complete record of the Chinese gamblers',
thereby making bail jumping and the convenient

It is a certainty that "if the finger print system
had been Inaugurated here three years ago the
number of convicted murderers would have been
trebled and half the burglars now operating would
be behind the bars. Of course, before any such
system would be of benefit we would have to have
detectives who know the difference between a
thumb print and a water buffalp.
