The Star-Ktilletin has not the slightest idea of condoning the jMdiccman's offense. It is the more heinous because to the forces of. law the city naturally looks for at least ordinarily de cent conduct. At the same time, the eopIe of Honolulu should realize that present conditions in the jiolice department make ossihle such an offense as this. When the department is admin istered by a man who affords anything but a good example -of sobriety and propriety to those under him, when there is practically no training of officers in either moral or physical ideals of stheir profession, the way is ojK'n for irresjnmsi bility, recklessness' and violation of sworn dutv. Sheriff Jarretfs administration is lax; liis men receive no training for their work worthy of the name, and Honolulu may expect malfeasance u the iM)lice department just so long as Honolulu tolerates an incapable or unfit sheriff.

MANY COUNTRIES AT ' NEWCOMERS' CLUB An interesting meeting of the New comers' Club was held in Cooke Hall, Young Men's Christian Association building, yesterday afternoon, when some thirty men, representing fifteen different countries, were asked to tell something of their native land. During the meeting, while the men were telling their names and their countries, one man arose and said that his name was Jansen, and that he was 'a native of . Denmark. The man who was sitting next to him got up and said that his name was also Jansen, and that he was also a native of Denmark, but was no relation to the first-named Jansen. The subject of discussion for. the afternoon, which was led by Secretary Super was "How To Keep the New Year's Resolution." At the fellowship supper which fol lowed the meeting of the Newcomers', the seventh of the travel, talks was given by T. F. Sedgwick, who told of his travels in Peru. ,Mr. Sedgwick was a resident of that country for five years, and,, besides telling of his personal experiences,' displayed pot tery, cloth and tools which he dug up in the remains of an ancient Inca village. ., ' , M.

AH the samples. , of the tokay which wer$ examined shewed approxi mately the same , results. The alco holic contents .varied from nineteen to twenty per cent, while the total acids in the eighteen samples was practically the same in all. The gly cerine contents were found to vary from 28 per cent to 32 per cent, and no artificial or poisonous coloring was found in any of the samples. The solids were found to correspond close ly to grape solids, and the total su gars was found to be 1 close ; to ten per cent, which yis nearly the amount required. No abnormalty was noted in any of the wines. The examination further showed that all the wines were made from grapes and the glycerine contents in dicated that they had been subjected to the usual fermentation. As a re sult of the examination the only lo gical conclusion which, can be reach ed ls that all the wines -are. normal and are entirely free from adultera tion. Particular care was taken to secure samples -from the retailers as well as from the wholesalers in or der tq determine whether or not the wines had been tampered with by the local dealers after their arrival here. This was proved not to be the case, however, as all of the wines ex amined showed practically the same results. ! "It is my opinion," said Food Com missioner Blanchard ? this morning, "that we must accotuft for all of the evil effects caused by the over-consumption of the so-called "dago red" In some other way than by adultera tion. It must be remembered that these wines are comparatively young and that they also have an alcoholic strength nearly one-half as great as that of whisky. The alcohol in these wines is largely concealed by the high 6ugar content and for this rea son the consumer is liable to drink more than usual, and I believe that the ill effects from this liquor come principally from the large quantities in which it is consumed. If it was consumed with the same moderation as whisky, I do not believe that there would be any ill effects." men, since the receipt of sailing orders, gb about their work blithly singing "My Rose of Honolulu," and other softly sentimental songs, while picture post caras or iropic scene? m tne shade of the sheltering palm" are highly prized as a foretaste of the life to come.
