a place where prohibition was in
force. I believe that there are
other methods which are more effective
in fighting the evils of intemperance.
For instance, the
Gottenberg system, which has
been tried with much success in
Sweden, once one of the most intemperate
countries in Europe,
appears to me to provide the most
practical method. I have been
much interested in this system.
"Of course- it must be understood
that this is my personal
opinion. The clergy of the Episcopal
Church does not take any
part in the present agitation. We
are working in the cause of temperance
always, but we look upon
the present situation as one which
must be handled by the politicians,
and as a thing in which we
will not take part."

I love the flowers that come about
And whether they be scarlet,

It mattereth to me not anything,

Who can tell
Why to smell
The violet recalls the dewy prime
Of youth and buried time?

I brought him home, in his nest,
He sings the song, but it cheers
For I did not bring home the river
He sang to my ear they sang

" I have no hesitation in saying
that the greater part of misery
and illness among the Hawaiians
is due to the abuse of liquor and
that the decrease of the Hawaiian
race is traceable to that source
This verdict on the effect of
liquor among the Hawaiians was
rendered the other day by Dr. A.
Mouritz, qualified to speak by
twenty-five years of medical experience
among the Hawaiians in
"The easier the facilities for
drinking the more drunkenness
there will be," said Doctor Mouritz.
" I may not believe in prohibition-
but there should be a
five times stricter regulation of
the liquor traffic in the Islands
and lacking that I can only hope
that prohibition will be passed.
"The saloon men say that if we
take the liquor from the Hawaiians,
they will manufacture their
own okolehao and swipes. Well,
let them. It is not as bad as the
majority of the cheap liquors that
are sold daily in our stores and at
least does not cost them anything
does not rob the women and
children of their food."
