Dealers in this eommoditv seemed to
have taken it that their business was
not affected by the new prohibition
as the kind of nteohol thev sell
not usually considered as an in-
toxirating liquor. This is because j
such grades as wood and denatured
alcohol are often used for the purposes
specified. However, there are grades
of prairi alcohol largely ued for me
rhanical purposes, such as for wireless
I 'unls and chemical mrrtnrea, which
can be made IntA'a pawible drink with
out danger of instant suicidal results.
vVTut Jb a Drink?
In an offhand decision, Assistant At
torney Oenernl Harry Irwin has ruled
that the transporting, importing and
sale of the various grades of alcohol
come within the meaning of the pro
hibition act, "if such alcohol can be
drunk so it will make tbe drinker
drunk before it will kill bim aa a
quick poison." He explains, though,
that the ' distinction regarding the
various grades and posslbje use qf tbe
nlcohol jwilj 'have to' D determined
"by th facts rather than the law"

Granting of joint jurisdiction to the
territorial courts and officials in the
enforcement of the Hawaii Prohibition
Act, which went into effect at mid
night last niefht, by congressional
amendment of the new law, has been
recoihmended to Attorney Oenernl
Oregofy is the best way violations may
b checked and violators prosecuted
Thia recommendation has been msdo
to Attorney (leneral Gregory by Dis
trict Attorney 8. C. Huber and Marshal
J. J. Rmiddy upon he suggestion of
Assistant Attorney General Harry Ir
win. The reco'mmendation is the fed
efal Authorities' answer to the attor
ney general's qnery as to how the pro
hibition law is to be enforced in Ha
waii. Unless some such action is taken
and taken" almost immediately, the fed
eral authorities and others believe the
United States marshal's staff will have
to he increased to a force of twenty
v or thirty deputies, In order to cope
with the situation as it stands today,
and provide the needed machinery
trietly to enforce the new low.
If some such action is taken the
several district and circuit courts of
the Islands and approximately "0 i
lieeinen will be as much responsible for
the enforcement of the federal prol.i
bltion law as they are for the enforce
meat of the territorial litpipr statutes.
Method Ii Easy
Amendment of the Hawaii Prohibi
tion Act, no equal jiirisiftetion will be
gfven to all territorial courts and ofti
eials with that of federal authority,
will be a simple and effective expedi
ent. Alt that will be necessary, it is
aaid, is for congress to add a short
section to the prohibition act, express
ly stating' that this jurisdiction has
beenx'teiided jointly to the Territory
with that nOw imposed in the federal
courts and onicials.
Hope is expressed that Attorney
General Oregory win realize the need

informed of the local conditions and
ht,w the w6rk of a large territorial staff
of policemen must be enntinued, or
their services retdace.l with .federal
bffirers, and that he will at once ask
congress to pass the necessary amend
ment. Beveral benefits will be derived from
the passage of the joint jurisdiction
amendmear, in the opinion or Assist-
ant Attorney Oerteral Irwin ''the fa
i sacramental, mechanical, mediciiiul and
(!hief of the benefits will be thn
great saving of expenses to the fed
eral government, and to witnesses, de
fendants, and all other litignnts in
volved in any liquor cases, he says.
For instance, he points out, by this
joint jurisdiction arrangement a de
fendant arrested in Kailuu, Kona,
could be tried in the Kailua district
or circuit court, without the necessity
of being brought to Honolulu with all
the necessary witnesses fend arresting
officers,, as Will tie Otherwise reojuiriJd,
a the law stands.
"Besides," Attoruey Irwin aaya,
"The present requirements of the law
will U.hke persons on the outside Is
lands backward about giving informa
tion regarding violations, us they
not want to become mixed up in
a CUliri HCIIOIl WHICH winini I " C"
"''Also;'' be .ays, "the Island poll
a court aetiou wnicn won hi require
will have an interest iu arresting vio
latori of the law so long as the de
feudants caa be prosecuted in the
courts of their district, which they
,. L,.ru:.s uo.ol.l it'll knip HO I CI 11 u nit
i tn,v ii,;.,., iH tt ,niter for federul
. attention. "
In addition, Attorney Irwin asserts
that under the present legul require
ments of the prohibition act Ihe Cult
ed Btates marshal's force, now con
sisting of only two deputies, will bu
entirely inadequate to control vinln
tios of the law.
It is he who estimates that it would
require at least twenty five or thirty
deputy marshals to provide a force t"
replace the services of the territorial
police, unless the services of these to
lice iu enfuv'ing the law as expressly
required by statute.

While District Attorney Huber be
lieves the assistant attorney general
has struck the right solution of the
probleni of the federal snthorities in
