prevent this we have got to open up
the congested districts and undertake
extensive sanitary operations."
T n statement was made by Doctor
Pratt, who opened the meeting. He
lint tfjok up the necessity of opening
hirer Is o cut through the great blocks
of tenements which prevail through
ctit hc district. In th center, bound
ed by King, Liliha, Beretania. Kukui,
School and Vineyard streets, there are
no c ross-btreets other than small
huios, seme of which are not wide
enough to permit the passage of an or
dinary wagon. In the centers of
t-iese large blocks there are hundreds
of acres uuderj cultivation, and on the
border or thesQ taro lands people live
in small houses, the outhouses being
located near ttye small auwais. If ty
phoid or cholera were to break out in
lfcc.se places, the disease would rapid
ly Fpread through the water in the au
wais, and In 'thi$ way the disease
would be carried on down to the pec
pie living nearby, as they would be
l'kc!y to come in contact with the wa
ter. Dnugrr of Epidemic.
Jn this manner an epidemic of the
disease could be easily started, Dr.
Pratt went on to fay, thus at all times
making this congested district of Pa
lama dangerous to th, other parts cf
the city. Dr. Pratt then brought out
the fact that tbls part of town was
the ceater'cf the . tuberculosis of tbej
entire city, and what that part of the j

Question of Kcnerugr.
The question" of sewerage was taken
up by Doctor Pratt, being one which
is of vital importance from a sanitary
standpoint. The blocks which are a
mass of crowded tenements prevent
the installation of sewers, as there is
no opening into the blocks through
which they may be laid, and as a - re
sult of this the people are using cess
pools to a great extent. This con
dition, of course, does not prevail in

Senator Judd also put the proposi
tion up to the club that if the Palama
district wanted any improvements it
would have to hustle out after them.
He said that twenty years ago the
population of Honolulu was 18,000, and
that today it is 60,000. and .so, In twen
ty years more it ought to have Increas
