A proposal to apply the principle of
the "Survival of the Fittest" in the
administration of the new Liquor Li
cense law was put forward in an argu
mentative way at yesterday's meeting
of the Board of License Commissioners.
There are ninety-three applications
for licenses in this county, and the pub
lic hearings which are required by law
will begin June 21. The meeting yes
terday was more especially for the pur
pose of considering and framing the
regulations and conditions which are
to be made a part of the license, in
addition to those provided in the law
itself, conditions and regulations which
the Board is authorized by the law
The application of the principle of
the survival of the fittest was put for
ward by Commissioner Lucas, not dog
matically as something he had come
to an irrevocable conclusion on, but
tentatively and suggestively as some
thing that might be considered.
"A lot of these applicants will vio
late the conditions of their licenses
within two months, anyway, no mat

Commissioner Lucas, '"and then it will

Eighty-Fifth Meeting Came to
' a Close at Noon
The Evangelical Association closed
its eighty-fifth meeting yesterday at
noon. An address by Eev. Mr. Thwing
upon the two great Asiatic conventions
was heard with deep interest, after
which Eev. John Kalino spoke upon
the "Influence of Slusic on Hawaii."
He was followed by Miss F. E. Yarrow,
whose paper entitled "The Kind of
Music Our Sunday Schools Xeed" was
so thoroughly appreciated that the as
sembly voted to ask for its publica
tion in the Hoaloha.
Among the important actions tken
was an enthusiastic vote to send Eev.
W, W. Lono to Apaiang in November
to attend the Jubilee of the Micronesian
Mission. Mr. Lono was formerly a
member of this mission. After full
debate the association decided to in
stitute a campaign of evangelism by
appealing to the churches of all the
islands to cooperate in a special mis
sion. Kaumakapili, Wainee, Haili and
Kapaa churches were requested to loan
their pastors for two or three months,
so that thev may so two and two

will be a double visitation of all Ha

A tragic incident was the calling of
Eev. Messrs. Kopa and Gulick to the
bedside of the dying veteran Pastor
John Kauhane of Waiohinu who was
taken ill a few days ago and borne to
the Queen's Hospital. Mr. Kauhane

$16,Ci9.6L'. These are all assessment

No cases were heard yesterday but
all were set for hearing, the hearings

afternoons until all are heard.
In three cases it was agreed that
they should be submitted on briefs for

that they could be submitted at once
to the Supreme Court. There are two
cases appealed by the Oahu Railway

only to the lessee's or actual pineapple
producer's interest, and not to the les
