in IS PROVIDED Nf BILL
Has Proviso That
May Decide After
Is Over For
Frilrr.il, war-time prohibition lor Hawaii, with a provision
'wherchy the voters of the Territory may decide whether or not to
" permit the law to remain in force after it has heen given a fair trial
and in case the war lias been ov er for at least six monfhs. is pro
vided for in a bill introduced into the senate yesterday by Senator
Motrin Sheppard of Texas.
The bill is short but comprehensive, if it follows the line of
one received by mail by the Anti-Saloon League from Dr. . V
W'adman, which he said would soon be before congress. It is taken
for granted that the bill is as drafted, the report concerning its in
roduction so intimating.
It provides for the prohibition of the sale, manufacture, giving
' .away, inijortation, exportation and transportation of all intoxicat-
rng liquors, excepting for sacramental, scientific, mechanical and
' medicinal uses. Rules for regulating such uses are to be drawn up
, ly the territorial legislature, presumably at af special session after
July 1, at which date, if the bill passes, it will go into effect.
' The text of the draft as received in Honolulu is:
