Woolley Admits Mistake. John (. Woolley. who will bo tho lender of tho prohibition campaign, mndo a nhmber of calls upon his sup porter In the city this morning. HoJ nns aircauy given voice to soma or nis !dHB on tho approaching plebiscite and his statement Is characteristic of tho extremist advocates ot prohibition. "It is a fine test of tho capacity of the neonlo for sflf government." ho Bays, "and 1 think from what i know! or tno crystallization or tlio semimnnt of tho people that they will pas upon It cmpuntically and squarely and that the Legislature will deal fairly with it." Tlio Inferenco to bo drawn from this statement of Woolley'B Is that tho peo plo of Hawaii nro to have their su premo and first test of the, qualifica tion of s'o.lf-govcrnmcnt on, July 23th and that n man who docs not vote for prohibition is not competent to cant a ballot. Incidentally yoolloy acknowledges that ho made n mlstako when ho sil ently stole off to Washington and at tempted to forco the Curtis, bill through Congress without giving the peOplo of tno Territory a ennnco w. exprcefe their sentiment. "Tho Prluca won out In his fight contention," says Woolley, "but I made the best fight t colild, and I am glad now that ho .won out, for, from what I havo thought of, it l tnuiK lu Is right about It, to submit this mat ter to tho people hcmsrtvcsv" J The present Porto Itlco law, gen erally Known as the Fornker Act, 'llnllts tho amount ot agricultural (land that may bo hold by a corpor ation to five hundred acres, hut, pro viding no penalty for violation of the law, It Is n dead letter. Whether this law for Porto Itlco may be regarded as an Ailmlnlstra tloh measure, this paper Is not' in It niuicars from the committee ro-. formed, but tho particular reference port that this, new rule, tor. the dlspolu the committee report to tho small slUon ot the lands ot Porto Klc? is planter is n very strong Indication framed with spcctel reference to tho .that tho hill carries out PreslJent sugar Industry of tho Islands.

AND SUGAR LANDS ' nejerfhee has been mado in theso columns to the determination ot Congress that, the lands ot the new possessions shall not bo "gobbled up" by corporatlpps, whatoyer be comes ot the lapds ot tho mainland, This Is suggested by the following from the bill before Congress to amend the Organic Act ot Porto nco: "Section 68. That no cor poration shall be authorized to -conduct tho business ot buying and sellng real estate, or be permitted 'to hold or qwn real estate, except such as may. be reasonably necessary to, enable It to carry out thn purpose for which It, was created, and every corporation engaged In agricul ture shall be restricted to the alcohol, that deadly poison, instead of the milder poison, the ordinary aiconoi mat goes lnio manuiaciurea wnuitcy, The New York Evening Post, in announcing this intemtinir result of "total abstinence." says: "Thus far eleven persons have died sudden ly.within the, past, week', and.it is. known that at least nine of the num ber had partaken of the poisonous potion. An arrest'.is expected within a short time." Eleven dead ii enough to emphasize the common-sense facts con cerning true temperance which we have often put-before our readers, and which we shall put before them often in the future. Xou can not in a day or in, a century change, the habits of eighty millions of people. You could not make vegetarians of all the, people in. this country by any" number of laws', although, by closing the butcher hop'tyou might encourage the eating of decayed meat just as in this prohibition town prohibition has forced upon the people the drinking of poisonous-wood alcohol whiskey. . It isn't possible to stop. absolutely the sale, and the drinking of stim ulants. Every sane man knows it. Every Congressman who voted to close ud the canteens in the United States army unless he was a fool knew that he was casting a hypocritical, vote, He knew that he was driving the soldiers from the use ot beer under, vynwesome surrounaings to the drinking of vile whiskey in dives. The man who votes to make a city "dry" knows, if he knows any-, thing, that he is really voting to stop the sale of the mild stimulants, and to'force those, that drink to drink poisonous spirits, easily con cealed. It oucht not to be necessary to have many more doses of this "me dicinal whiskey," many more deaths from wood alcohol, to make, sane men realize that those that really want REAL TEMPERANCE should work to discourage in every possible legal way the sale of the. whiskeys and other highly alcoholio poisons w!.h high, license. And at the same time encourace the sale, under cood conditions, of the- light beers and light wines universally consumed in Europe, AND WITHOUT DRUNK ENNESS.
