THE GARDEN ISLAND TUESDAY, JANUARY 23, 1917,
THE LIQUOR QUESTION
Editor Garden Island:
As a render of the Garden Island
for ninny yenrs I have followed your
articles with much interest and have
found them invariably on the side
of good government and progress.
I must tnke except inn, however, to
your approval of our licensing sys
tem as practiced on Kauai. You
have from time to time referred to
it as idenl legislation or at least
much ahead of the laws in force on
our sister islands.
The principle may he all right
hut the administration of it is much
in the hands of the (so called) whole
saler, hut Kauai is learning what
other communities have learned lung
ago "liquor dealers cannot he en
trusted to enforce the law." If
these gentlemen valued their licens
ing privileges ns they ought to do
they would pvit their ftet down on
the blind pig and wash their hands
of the dirty business.
Let me take Koloa ns nn example:
We have several of these law evad
ing gentlemen in the very heart of
the business center, one nt least
doing a business that would make
many a tax paying saloonkeeper
green with envy. Unlike the saloon,
these law breakers have no hours to
do business. Sunday anil Saturday
are all the same to them, and the
only holidays they respect (strange
enough) is the jury terms.
Their evil influence can be seen
in many directions; they are lead
ing many young men to drink, caus
ing poverty to others, while the
elliciency of our police force is much
impaired. If our good sheriff will
only say the word there are mem
bers in the Koloa police force ready
and willing to do their duty.
Another prohibition fight is sure
ly coming. How can the license trade
espeet the continued support of the
moderate, drinker (who holds the
issue in his hands) if they support
such traflic? A glance at the land
interests in Koloa looks rather ugly,
to put it midly.
I have dealt with Koloa more than

Doro as the principal attraction,
contains many interesting scenes
and episodes, but probably the most
unique is the evolutions of a hat.
Miss Doro makes one hat into 12
no mean task', it must be admitted,
and were husbands to train their
wives to be economical with their
millinery to the same extent tin
funny man would he very shy on
Marie Doro is known ns "The
Kid,'' a worker in a pVper flower
factory. She is a child of the slums.
She produces for herself a hat that
is a monstrosity, but which she
loves as none of the other girls has
anything like it. She is removed
from her slum environment and
there is instilled into her child mind
the elements of refinement and sim
plicity. During the 12 mom lis of
her mental metamorphosis the hat
in question remains with the girl,
hut it undergoes as many changes
as does its possessor until in its
numerous changes her former friends
would never recognize the object of
their one-time envy.
"Personally," says Miss Doro,
"I do not recommend encouraging
wives to remodel their millinery too
often, although it might meet with
favor, from the head of the family."

I had intended but Koloa is not the
only district at fault.
I hope this may be the means of
some one in authority taking a step
to suppress this growing evil.
