THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER: HONOLULU, JUNE 21, 1S9S.
The best at the lowest price at HOPP'S. A Warm -1 C5 Policy. During the last (fortnight we have refrained from talking shop for three reasons: First Every one felt so -wrapped rtp in the "Boys in Blue" that they did not care much about furniture or listening to any lengthy talk on our The weather having been such that people would much rather stay at home and keep as cool as possi ble in preference to moving around in the sun. Third This reason of course is of more interest to us than to our cus tomers, unless they are directly in terested by having goods in our re pair shop. Regardless of the hot weather we have had as much, and some days more, than we could handle in the repair and upholstery depart ment. So that while you folks have been entertaining or keeping quiet we Lave been operating a bee hive. We do not object at all, in fact we will be more than pleased to see the orders roll in to such an extent that we would fbe forced to employ additional upholsterers. ooo Table Talk.

J h ARGUE AT LENGTH A House Comttee Does Hot Lite tie Opium Bill. OH A HIGH MORAL PLANE Criticises Construction of Act. Board of Health and Physi ciansOfficials. The act placing use of opium in the Islands under control of the Board of Health has passed the Senate. The adverse report given below has been presented in the House, but the act has some strong advocates in the low er branch and the fight will be a close one. The committee says: The claim of those who favor the act is that it will put an end to smug gling of opium and that It will restrict its use. This claim your committee does not think can be good. Inquiry shows that though it may make the gains of the smuggler less, there will still be inducement for him to smug gle. As to the restriction of its use, your committee sees that the act pro vides that opium shall only be sup plied to those who are now habituated to its use, but what is to prevent those habitues from furnishing the drug to others who have never xtsed it, there by swelling the number of its users, who will in time, demand their sup ply of the legal purveyor of the in stitution created by law to pander to the appetites of the victims of this habit. Under Section 1, your committee would point out that there is no pro per definition of opium. For instance, the form of opium used for smoking is not the medicinal opium, nor can opium as prepared for smoking be used in medicine or for the manufac ture of medicinal preparations of opium. Under Section 2, the Board of Health is constituted a body for the importa tion of that which is forbidden to firms and individuals; the importation of an article which all agree is the most harmful and degrading drug within the reach of man. Boards of Health are constituted to conserve the health of people, they should not be the agents that assist in hastening them to a miserable grave. Section 3 is one that will strike every one who gives it thought as essential ly a vicious one. The Government Physician, the District Magistrate and the Sheriff or Deputy Sheriff, of the different judicial districts, are, by this act, constituted an "Opium Board." Would any o propose the appoint ment of Government officials to act as a board to allow other vices inci dent to weak humanity? Can any one think that a self-respecting educated physician, one whose mission in life is to heal the sick, re store to health the afflicted, and lead to a higher hygienic life, would so far forget his duty and his calling as to serve on a Board whose duty it is to serve out the means of degradation to erring fellow creatures? And what would ibe the action of our Board of Health supposing any Government physician refused to serve on an Opium Board? As the law reads there must be a Government physician on the Board, and should a conscientious man refuse to serve there would be nothing to do but cancel the commis sion and appoint a man who could put his conscience in one pocket, while he put dollars in the other. Then ronsido another member of the "Opium Board." the District Ma- istrate. On the one hand, lie is tne dispenser of justice, on tne otnei furnishes a victim with the means or crime. J HIS is an aiiuuiaiv niuw -self-apparent and self-convicting. An opium smoker might commit a crime under the influence of the drug and might have to be sentenced to pun ishment by the very member of the Board who assisted in furnishing him with the drug. One of the many reasons that are advarfced for the licensing of opium, is that unlicensed it corrupts the offi cials. While we have good material both among District Magistrates and Deputy Sheriffs, it does not seem as if there "is any better material than there has been among our police and customs officials and the means of cor ruption are as likely to be u?ed to de feat the present law, as ever they were to defeat prohibition of the drug. The act provides that no minor hall be enrolled on the list of habit ual users. This will not. cannot, from the verv circumstances of the case, prevent 'minors from obtaining access to the drug through the habitual users, whether from curiosity, weakness or as a bribe to greater crime and mis fortune. Under Section 4. the Board of Heahh will have to furnish the Opium to the Opium Boards, in such quantities as they, in their discretion, think suffi cient Bv whom and by what stand ard is the "quantity sufficient" to be determined? Who of the Board, un less he be a user of opium, can say when the "quantity sufficient" has been reached? , . member of the Opium i.oaru u the end. by authority or nearer thfr degraded. It is not necessary to go into tne further details of this act. That those who support it are entirely honest m their views, is to be presumed. But required, by this act, to dole out to each holder of a permit, lifty grains of opium a day. That is. on each and everv dav of the year, every hoal nf n nermit. weaker, .more debased. to law bv act of Government, win ueni blinirlv approach this Government dis penser and obtain his further allow ance in order that he may be still far- that it will work harm and be a source of corruption appears on the very fac? of it. Aside from all political reasons, and these in the minds of the committee are strong, for it must be remembered, that was the at tempt to pass an opium license bill and a lottery bill which finally over threw the monarchy, was in fact the teterrima causa of that cataclysm, there is the consideration of the man's duty to man, no mere sentiment, but the duty of the stronger, the better in evolution, to his weaker, his less educated, the man further advanced advanced brother, not further to de grade him, rather to assist him as far as possible by removing from his path, by putting out of his reach, all means, all temptation which may further cast him down. Your committee therefore recom mend the bill be laid on the table. (Signed) A. V. GEAR. A. T. ATKINSON. D. H. KAHAULELIO. NOVELTIES AND MILLINERY. By the Barkentine W. H.
