up. a machine of greater efficiency,
through being able to work more di
rectly agaifcst the evil than it for

"The objects of the present cam

greatest desire is to get control of

How much this is needed can be un
derstood wlien 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 gey a death
certificate. ' r - ; " -A
"Secondly oar1 efforts will "be dl

ters, ' all , of i which 5 are 4 capable of
throwing great discouragement in the
way of the workers. We will at
tempt,' through , branches of .the sys

alleviate congested conditions where

that much danger removed from the
community at large. Medical science
teaches u that it is not impossible to

This deal, by the way, is held up at
present by a clause in the proposed
contract drawn by the commission,
which provides that the present own
ers the Kahului Railway, shall not
build another wharf and enter into
competition with the present pier in
case it is bought by the Territory.
This, the commissioners say, is ab
solutely necessary, as the railway
controls more than ninety percent of
all the freight passing to and fro
over the wharf, and should the rail-
waV sell the present wharf and then
erect another, giving the new one
all Its business, it would leave the
Territorly "holding the bag."
It is proposed that after the pur

bulkhead wharf shall be constructed
there; for the use of deep sea going
vessels, with the Claudine wharf left
for Inter-Island trade.
