The Hobson resolution has lwen taken as a huge, joke by many in the liquor trade. ISut is it such a joke with the wave of reform fluctuating as it is?" One of these vivid signs of the times that the liquor interests are recognizing is the movement in favor of national legislation on the subject. For many years stanch advocates of prohibifion have differed widely on the question of how to secure it. Local option in various forms, state legislation and national legislation ach has its sincere followers. Now the sentiment in favor of national legis lation is manifest! v growing fast. Here is an Associated Press news item which proves it : Columbus, Ohio, Jan. 3. After rejecting a proposi tion to endorse the demands of the Anti-Saloon League for an amendment to the federal constitu tion providing for nation-wide prohibition, members of the Progressive party in Ohio in conference here today took a less drastic stand on that subject, fa voring submission to the states of an amendment to the federal constitution granting to the national Con gress power to deal with the problem. It is national legislation now proposed for Hawaii in the (Jronna bill. Even some of the most jealous upholders of state's rights are com ing to iK'Heve that national legislation to curb the. liquor evil is not only justified hut proper.

There are several methods employ ed to kill the bacteria and to remove other impurities which are found in water, and particularly in surface wa ter, or water that flows from fields, mountains, etc.. and which gathers up ! so much refuse matter and deposits it in the reservoirs. The proper filtration of Impure wa ter through sand is said to remove 95 to 99 per cent of the bacteria from the water, but even this method leaves enough of this substance to be a men ace to inhabitants. Light and oxygen, chlorine, o2one and ultra-violet light and other meth ods are also being used in various cities of America for cleansing the water. The ozone method for steril izing water which is more in use in Europe is used with success. The ozonec air Injected into the water is usually affected by pressure, and is to it. D. KALAUOKAI-ANI.
