A ratV.i r 'rrinis nmr.wav accident
occured on Vineyard and Market
si reet about six o'clock on Wednes
day evening. Mr. Combs of the Do
pot Store was delivering goods and
on the corner of High and Vineyard
streets a sack of grain fell from his
wagon. Iff went behind the wagon
to pick it u;, when his horse took
fright and rim down Vineyard street,
to Market,. Instead of turning to the
right or left, the hor.-.e ran directly
across the street and into a candy
shop o:i the opposite side of the street
breaking in the entire front of the
building. Fortunately none of the
occupants were injured, and the only
particular injury to the team was a
number of severe cuts on the head of
NO MORE PLAGUE CASES.
Since' 'oiCr last issue there have
boon no more plague cases, and it is
believed that we may with some de
gree of coufidenco hope that there
will lie no more.
Hy order o! the Board of Health,
the whole of Kahului is to be inclosed
in a corrugated iron rat-proof fence.
This fence will take in the lumber
yard, the H. C. & S. Co store and
warehouses and the Kirkland. Church
and Filler residences on the east side
of town; thence parallel with the mul
from Kahului to Wailuku, and in fact
taking in part of this road. The
western line of fence will run from a
point near the detention camp to the
beach, leaving the cottage where
Mr. Ball lives just outside the fence.
This practically shuts in the whole
of Kahului. The construction of the
fence has been, lwgun. and will prob
ably bo finished by Monday night.
As soon as the fence is cixnploted, a
vigorous and systematic warfare will
be inaugurated against the rats in
the enclosed district.
Special quarters art' being fitted
up for the ro'.miining residents of
Kahului near the detention cam).
and aS snoiv as 'completed., they will
all b moved to them. No one will be
illowod inside the fence except those
engaged in killing rats. The Board
ilso decided that the Kahului It R.
Company must enclose the railroad
track on both sides with a rat
proof fence, which is being done at
once, and will probably be finished
so that traffic cau be resumed by
this evening or by Monday at furthest.
No definite decision has yet been
reached by the Board of Health as
to whether or not the remaining
buildings or any of them are to bo
It was also decided that the quar
mtine of Kahului v.ould be for the
term of Mi) days from the date of the
last case of plague. The last case
that occurred was on Sunday, Feb.
21'rd. and if there are no more oases,
quarantine will end March 2i5-rd, fif
teen days from to-day.
Yesterday a rut was killed in the
Kahului Store warehouse. Dr. Gar

tion of dead rat last night and found
it to be ir foe ted with plague.

"Colenso is now our railway base.

Armstrong Smith's report from
Tin; Board of Health has decided
to pay it reward of $100 to any per
son, not n paid employe of the Board,
who will report a genuine ease of
plague occurring in Honolulu.
No cases of plague appeared yes
terday, n;ir wore there any suspi
cious cases of sickness. Four clean
days have now elapsed since the last
victim succumbed to the disease.
President Wood of the Board of
Health says that the situation is en
couraging and present conditions
favcrnble. More cases are expect
ed however, and it is the opinion of
th health authorities that oases will
continue to crop up now and then in
different parts of ti e city for some
little time to come.
H. il. Levy, the Hawaiian Hotel
suspect, is in a decidedly bettor
eoudition; and is reported by Arm
strong Smith as being on the road
to recovery, thanks to the serum.
All the doctors, nurses and atten
dants who have anything to do
with the care and handling of plague
patients at the posthouso have
taken'a precautionary injection. Dr.
Wood says it raises a lump where
the injection is made i:i the leg

Rat Slides Examined.
A rat. when infected by plague ba
cilli, proves a danger and a menace
to a community beyond a doubt, if
the microscopical slides prepared
from a Kahului rodent are to be
taken as positive evidence.
On Saturday. Feb. 10. Dr. Hoff
mann received several slides pre
pared and sent by .Dr. Garvin from
Kahului. When subjected to a mic
roscopical tost at the Board of Health
laboratory the slides disclosed great
numbers of oblong-shaped germs,
which were 'readily determined by the
physicians who examined, the slides
to be plague bacilli. In each slide
the bacilli were observed to be close
ly grouped and extended entirely
across the field of the Ions.
Dr. Katsuki was an interested ex
aminer, and expressed surprise at
the great number of bacilli found in
the slides. Both Dr. Wood and Dr.
Hoffmann were deeply interested in
the result of the examination.
The rut in question was one of a
number killed in a general storehor.se
for merchandise at Kahului, and Dr.
Garvin immediately made a micro
scopical examination to discover
whether or not it had been a source
of danger to the merchandise. It was
not long before he reached the con
clusion that considerable danger was
imminent from the pest, not only to
the town of Kahului. but to ar.y ship
ments that might be made from the
