"America has given us the privilege to make the choice for ourselves by providing the plebiscite. It is up to the people of Hawaii to torn to God and leave off drinking," was the opening statement made by Xakookoo at the prohibition meeting at the Haili church, Hawaii, last .Sunday. A number of prominent Hawaiian speakers were present and addressed the audience on the evils of drink. Among them were Messrs. Nakookoo, Mossman. Drahnis, Smith and Desha. Rev. August Drahms was the first speaker. He said that next month a great question was to be decided, which had been forced upon the Hawaiians bv necessity. Before the foreigner came to Hawaii the Hawaiians were a temperate people, and they were now to decide whether they intended to re main so or not. A majority of the States of the T'nion had decided that liquor was a cure, and had become dry. Tt was sig nificant that fonr-fifths 'of the States in the South had turned to prohibition; this was a strong indictment against, the liquor traffic. There were several wnvs of legislat ing nil this great issue, 'there was high license, making the license practically so high that it eliminated the smaller saloons, and limited the evil to the so cal'e.l " respeetaT'Ie " saloons. That, it could be readily seen, was no cure, for there would be as much drinking as before, even if there were only two "respectable" saloons that was a misnomer, for there were no respect able saloons. It was like placing a plaster on the body to cure heart disease. The other method of fighting the liquor evil was by means of prohi bition measures, by which a State could p'ohit it the manufacture and use of intox-ants. Now, if the use of in toxicants were a crime, the question arose whether it was best to use mere superficial treatment or to resort to a "nmpletr eradication. That it was a crime could be seen from the expres sions of men like Lincoln, and by the United States Supreme Court.

All Honolulu celebrated Kamehameha Day yesterday, the weather being per fect, and the varied program of observ ance in memory of the great Hawaiian conqueror was carried out without an incident to mar the anniversary. It was the same kind of weather which made the celebrations in monarchical times so successful days when the ruler of the Islands joined in with the people to give homage to the great Napoleon of the Pacific. The entertainments yesterday were varied, ranging from Sunday scho picnics and yachting cruises to base ball, golf and polo matches during the day and squared-eircle contest in the evening, with luans, replete with Hawa iian delicacies of imu-baked pig and fish and kulolo, at all hours of the day and night. It was a day when all Ho nolulu seemed to be moving on pleasure bent a day when the street cars wer-J filled with patrons, and hundreds of pleasure seekers motored into the val leys and around the Island, while a multitude sought recreation at the bath ing beaches and in the parks. Amongst the Hawaiians the dav was begun at daylight, when the statue'of Kamehameha was decorated. Members of Hawaii Chapter, No. 1, Order of Ka mehameha, assembled at their hall and marched to the Judiciary building, bearing leis and palm branches, all of which were artistically drapod about the statue, mere was much chanting of the genealogy and praising of the virtues of the conqueror, the ceremony attracting a multitude of people of Ha waiian birth, while tourists found the scene one of the most interesting they have recorded by kodak. All day long Hawaiians made pilgrimages to the stai'tv-, depositing floral tributes at the bas4 of the pedestal. The time-honored annual picnic of Central Union Sunday school was again a feature in the grounds of Oahu Col lege, where hundreds of young people were entertained throughout the morn ing and early afternoon by their elders, when basketball and baseball and all kinds of games were played, soda water dispensed in unlimited quantities, a lunch served to about "twelve hundred people and a good time had by all. Other picnics were held at Moana Lua and Tear Harbor, the shaded lawns of Mr. Damon's estate affording much fOontinued on Page Two.) ST. PAUL, June 12. GitTord Pinchot and James R. Garfield were the guests last night of the St. Paul Roosevelt Club at a banquet marked with en thusiasm.' H. Albert, president of the club, in welcoming the guests of honor, referred to them as leaders of an as yet unnamed new party in American polities. The inference was plain that former President Roosevelt is expected by the St. Taul insurgents to lake the leader ship of a party to be made up from the ranks of the Republican insurgents and the Democrats who sympathize with the insurgent principles.

Leslie Shaw, former secretary of the treasury, in a speech last night scored the insurgent wing of the Republican party for their effort to bring about another revision of the tariff, to lower the schedule of duties.

The Herald says: The beauties of the crater of Kilauea ' are being sung by the members of the', McRae stock company, who, after com- deting their engagement at the Gaiety1 Theater on Saturday night, packed up their trunks and were all ready for the vacation trip on Sunday morning. The party was a jolly one and filled two big automobiles to the limit. After lunch at the Volcano House the party went down to the crater, some going on foot, some by auto ami some on horseback. All hail a good chance to see the vol cano, both by daylight and by dark, and several members of the party were so enthusiastic that thev remained till nearlv daybreak watching the varied forms outbreak. Miss Margaret Oswald was one of the most enthusiastic, and showed her appreciation by being the last to leave the pit. In speaking of the volcano she said: "Do you suppose that T would leave here without taking in everything there was to see and without being fullv sat isfied with the wonder of that boiling mass of melted rock? The vol'-ano is one of the chief causes of my coming to Hawaii. T have wanted to see Ki lauea for vears, and when Hawaii was sugges'ed to me I immediately thought of that and came at once. It is ton much for me to try to say what I think of the show- that Madame Pele gave us. She has the finest stage manager in the world ba-ked off the boards when it comes to stage effects. I only wish we could put en a play and use such a set ting as that. ' ' Miss Laura Hudson, the clever little woman who made ;n-h a bit here in "The Lion and the Mouse," had quite a d liferent strain. She eaTT: "It was the greatest thing possible to sit 'here and watch all those little devils lumping round. T could see them very plainly, and row and then a really big devil would come along and drive them all awav so that he could have some fun himself. I coidd see the whole thing in the costume line horns, f orked tail and cloven feet. T rever knew that there were so many little devils in existence before. It is the greatest sin-iit I ever expect to see." Col. Walter S. Schuyler, Fifth Cavalry, from the homeland. Colonel Schuyler was named by the war department as a special military aid to the Chinese Prince Tsai Ta'o, who first trod Amer ican soil at Honolulu. Colonel Schuyler accompanied the prince and his party through travels and visits in the United States as Uncle Sam's special escort. This detail end ed on May 5, when Prince Tsai Ta'o departed from New Tork for London. Conel Schuyler then reported at Wash ington and was ordered to return to hia station at Schofield Barracks.

His bride is the fourth he has led to the altar. TOO STRENUOUS FOB HONOLULU Twenty-Four-Hours Go-as-You-Please Race Is a Fizzle.

The members will turn out in their regalia. An effort to hold a twenty-four hours go-as-you-pU-ase raee in Honolulu yes terday and Friday was a fizzle. The teams apparently couldn't stand the pace and about fifteen hours after the start, nearly all the runners were out of business. Daniel Fahy and his partner W. Feagler were exceptions. They stayed with the game to the end and finished in triumph. The contest started with two Amer ican teams, a Portuguese, a Chinese and a Russian team. It began on Fri day evening at ten o'clock with ery lively running by some of the competi tors, who paid for their spurting efforts the next day. Yesterday afternoon the continuous run proposition was aban doned, and all hands took a lay off, owing to the heat. The American team No. 1 consisted of Nigel Jackson and Pat Walsh. They led yesteraay morning, and both seem ed game and willing. But at eighty four miles and eleven laps, they quit the game. This was at about seven o'clock last night. The Chinese team started out on Friday night with a whoop, leading all others. But yesterday C. K. Charlie, who did the spurting, was nearly use less, and the team had to retire. Chung Lung, his associate, did some very game work, but couldn't handle the proposition alone, and the team had to withdraw. When they quit they had made fifty-seven miles and seventeen la jis. The Russian team quit at fifty-three miles arid seven laps. A specially game tight was made ly Simeon, a Russian lad who stayed with the race to the limit of h;s endurance. The Portuguese team consisted of A. Cravia and li. Martin. Both developed blisters on their feet, being apparently ill prepared f r the contest, and they rave up after making only twenty-one miles. The Nigel Jackson Pat Walsh team made eighty four miles and eleven laps before 1 quit, which they did at vo'n o'clock last night. Neither win in verv good condition, and the Faiiy Feag'er team was by that time evi dently the winner. This team kept on the run. to finish the twenty-four In urs and trv for a record.

The general committee of the Socialist party has instituted a national movement in aid of the Russian laborers in Hawaii, said to be held in peonage by the managers of the sugar plantations in the Islands. The pdans of the Socialists, so far as they have been matured, is to begin an independent investigation of the re ported conditions in Hawaii and to institute legal proceedings to see that the Russians secure their rights. They intend to send an attorney from Los Angeles to Honolulu, representations having been made to them by the Ho nolulu Socialists that it is impossible; to hire a lawyer in the Islands who would not be influenced by the sugar planters and not afraid to carry out his" full duty to his clients. Local Socialists have been extremely busy since the advent of the Russian, laborers into Hawaii. Prior to Ae landing of the first Russians, reports were in circulation of attempts to be made to induce the Russians not to go to work. Jacob Kotinsky, territorial entomologist, was credited with being at the head of this scheme and steps were taken to prevent him and others from approaching the Russians until after they had beeu passed by the im migration authorities. Later, Kotinsky was allowed to resign from his posi tion and denials were given out that his retirement and his socialism were related. Later, the local Socialists circulated freely among the new-comers. When Sheriff Jarrett administered the lesson with police clubs that the Russians needed, Joseph 1. Whittle, a leader in local Socialist circles, who was present during the Merchant street melee, ex pressed his opinion very freely con cerning the police action, stating that it was "a shame that white men should be so handled by kanakas." He announced then that "the people on the mainland will hear about this." There is evidently more behind the misrepresentations that have been made on the mainland regarding the Rus sians and the alleged "peonage" than the vaporings of Yasiliefi' and his fel low agitators among the Russians.
