suits of great value, and in securing
100 per cent more data relating to
tuberculosis in Hawaii can now build
up a machine of greater efflcieftcy,
through being able to work more di
rectly against the evil than it for
"The objects of the present cam
paign will be two-fold," said Dr. A.
N. Sinclair, executive officer of the
league,, this morning. "Primarily our
greatest desire is to get control of
all the tuberculosis cases in the Ter
ritory and place them under treat
ment We will seek aid In doing this
in an extended campaign of publicity.
How much this is needed can be un
derstood, when it is realized 'that sev
eral hundred cases of tuberculosis are
reported yearly throughout the Terri
tory that the authorities know noth
ing of until the patients die and It
becomes necessary to get a death
"Secondly our efforts will be di
rected against those conditions breed
ing or encouraging tuberculosis. This
work is of considerable " more diffi
culty. There are prejudices to over
come, so-called property rights to
come in conflict with, and other mat
ters, all of which are capable of
throwing great discouragement inthe
way of the workers. We will at
tempt; through branches of the sys
tem at present at our service, to ob
tain playgrounds fof 'children and to
alleviate congested conditions where
they, exist by affording plenty of op
portunity for fresh air.
"We hope to greatly reduce the
prevalence pf tuberculosis if we can
obtain the control of all consump
tives, as I said before, for every pa
tient under treatment in a sanitarium
or who is being otherwise trained how
to conduct himself with the least pos
sible danger to - his companions, is
that much danger removed from the
community at large.? Medical science
teaches us that it is not Impossible to
wipe out! this dreadful disease alto
gether, and it is our ambition and
hope to place Hawaii in the front
rank of progress in this matter."
Rev. S. L. Desha, the silver-tongued
orator of Hllo, Hawaii, will arrive Jn
the Mauna Kea tomorrow morning on
business. It is reported that he has
agreed to speak in Hawaiian, for the
candidacy of the regular Republican
nominees at the meeting to be held
tomorrow evening at Aala park. De
sha, as is well known throughout the
territory, is one of the best Hawaiian
speakers, not only on the pulpit but
from the stump. Owing to his thor
ough knowledge of the qualifications
of the Republican nominees, the
leaders of the party decided to : send
for him to come here and deliver the
most important political speech of his
life at Aala park tomorrow night.
Prince Kuhio, delegate to Congress,
who has been making a political tour
on Kauai, will, according to the pres
ent plans, return tomorrow morning.
It was his intention, before he left for
the Garden Island, to make a thor
ough campaign on the island before
returning to Honolulu.
WATER MAINS TO BE
LAID IN KA1ULANI
Kalihi will have its water mains
down in the near future. This is the
assurance given out from the Gov
ernor's office this morning, and prop
erty owners feel that a big step in
the right direction has been taken.
The other day the executive com
mittee of the Republican county cen
tral committee held a conference with
the Governor, concerning the laying
of mains in the Kaiulani tract, Ka
lihi, and this morning's announce
nient from the executive shows that
the conference has borne the right
kind of fruit Work will be started
immediately and rushed to comple
tion. Miss Kleanore Peregrin, the nurse
who attended Walter Duryea. the New
York clubman, during twelve year's of
illness, was left $155,000.
