Third This reason of course is of
more interest to us than to our cus

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? , .

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

each holder of a permit, lifty grains

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.
