Shortsighted Sani.ary Inspector Weight is thoroughly
Property Owners worked up over the sanitary conditions
of Wailuku and the apparant indifference of property owners
on Market Street in allowing tenants to construct, rimsh ickle
lean-tos on the lots, thus making it. almost, an impossibility to
order tlio removal of outbuilding and their ivc.oii-aructimion sani
tary lines. Property owners will lease new buildings with ample

er days and is anything but suitable lumber for building living
quarters, as most of these shacks are sub-rented and used for that
purpose or for living cooking and washing quarters combined. thus
reducing the rentof tlie tenent but not increasing the revenue Df the
Dronertv owner, but rather denreeiates his values and increases
t k - - .
his' insurance. When sanitary renovations are ne sded and necssarv
to the publics health, conditions are found to be sucn that the pro
posed improvements are impossible for lack of space. Property
owners should of their own accord make such restrictions regard
ing the erection of additional buildings as will keep the sanitary
conditions up to a high standard. If on the other hand the proper
ty owner is indifferent the insurance companies can expedite the
needed reform by refusing to insure only when such premises are
in accordance with their rules which insure a fair chance of sanita
tion and a minimum danger from fire! In case of a fire on Market
street there are quarters so erected that the tenents could neither
get out nor the fire brigade in to quelch the conflagration.
Inaugural In time past efforts have been made to change the
Day date of the presidential inaugural day from March
4th to some later date, but while the measure has met wtyh the ap
proval of the Senate twice, the House, through indifference or some
similar reason has blocked the measure. Now "after almost a half
century of talk and agitation, the movement to change the date of
the Presidential inauguration has at length assumed definite form
and is now "making substantial headway," says the New York Tri
bune. Forty-one governors have signified their willingness to
serve on the committee which Commissioner Macfarland has or
ganized to induce Congress to draw up and submit to the States
the constitutional amendment which is necessary to be adopted be
fore the change can be made. A simple statutory enactment is
not sufficient, as to move the date forward from March 4 to April
30 the day desired would involve at first an extension of nearly
eight weeks to the term of the President. The reasons which are
urged for having the inauguration held on April 30 are that the
change would add to the length of the short session of Congress
and enable those who attend the ceremonies to escape the dangers
resulting from exposure to the inclement weather of March which
has, as the Philadelphia Public Ledger declares, produced 'a har
vest of death and disease after every inaugural day in the past.'

robbing "Peter to pay Paul." Let Oahu stand on its own tooting
and conduct its county affairs out of the legitimate monies due it
and see where it comas off. But of course that it not to be expec

According to Bradstreet's the
Chinese boycott of American goods
as trained headway only in two
plaees-at Canton where it has "made
some progress," and at Shanghai
herp it "has assumed a really seri
ous aspect." Other papers, while
noting that the boycott is not being
adopted as extensively as was fear
ed, claim that it has 'stirred up or
brought to light a very threatening
pirit in China. Thus a despatch to
te New York Evening Tost (Ind.)
reports that. "he movement against
Americans is spreading " and that
an ugly rnnror nirainst Americans
personally is being brought into exis
tence, . . . ." while the fit . Loui Globe
TVmocrnt (Rep.) foresees another

''It is her inning tn be feared now.
however, that the hovctt will ex
tend to other countries. The spiri'
whi -h has been aroused bv the at.
tack on America is showing itself h
a movement against, nil foreigners.
It i an evidence of th new progt-nm
of self assertion bv the Chinese, such
as led, during the Boxer insnrrec
tlnn. to an assault on all foreigners
in the empire." ' ""
Hut whatever may be the actual
s-.ate of affairs, it is generally believ
ed that, if the trouble is allowed to
go on, tho "smoldering race hatred,"
as the New York Evening Post (Ind.
again remarks, "may be fanned into
a flame, and serious consequences
may follow." The latest uct' com
plained of is a scheme to present the
landing of American goods by refus-
ng the use of lighters and persuad
ing coolies not to work on American
ships at the seaport towns. Wong
Kai Kah, the Chinese imperial trade
commissioner, who has been sent here
to negotiate for a new treaty, de
clares in an authorized interview
that the boycott is not sanctioned by
his government, but. is simpH "a pri
vate enterprise" on the part of mer
chants and gentry of the Flowery
Kingdom. President Roosevelt, how
ever, is not so sure on this point.
"It is imputing folly to those
charged with the protection of our
treaty" rights to represent them as
capable of supposing that the right
of Americans in China to import and
sell non-prohibited goods puts upon
the Chinese Government the respon
sibility of providing a market and
finding purchasers for the imported
The treaty right to import and
sell, however, does impose upon the
Chinese Government full responsibil
ity for the continued free access of
American goods to the Chinese mar
ket, whether conditions for sale in
that market are good or bad. It is
the plain duty of the Chinese author
ities, in the case of interfering of tha
landing of American goods, or a
violent incident of the boycott, 'or
by any other process, public or priv
ate, to secure to the American mer
chants their full enjoyments of the
rights defined in Article 15, either
as to the landing of goods or the
sale of them, if purchasers are found
willing to buy. The Literary Digest.
