The Public In view of the recent development of n, case of
Health. cholera in Honolulu certain rules for the preven
tion of the disease is published by the Hoard- of Health. These
are embodied in the following editorial which appeared in the Ad
vertiser in its issue of the 21st instant which we are pleased to' re
print and would suggest that in case of the spread of the disease
even in Honolulu, these rules should be strictly observed.
We hope the public will not be frightened over the reappearance,
after twelve years, of cholera. There is but one case and this has
been isolated and the usual measures taken to keep the disease
from spreading. In 1895, when there was an epidemic, the town
met it with fortitude and handled it with skill. There were not
more than three or four deaths of while people and the majority of
the brown and yellow people who died had been unmindful of the
regulations of the Board of Health as respects cleanliness and
food. The general observance of a few simple rules here will
keep the present visitation of cholera from becoming serious:
Drink no water which has not been previously boiled and tillered.
Avoid the use of uncooked vegetables, such as lot nee. watercress
and radishes. Keep out of the Nuuanu stream, do not swim in the
harbor or wade near the sewer outlet: avoid infected neighbor
hoods; eschew raw fish or fish caught in the harbor or its tribut
tary; live a simple, clean, temperate life and do not lot tilth accu
inulate anywhere. Keep clean yourself but be sti re not to bathe
in water that may have been contaminated. And don't get fright
ened and tell stories about the cholera which you can't prove
Precisely what happens will be reported dally to the public and
nothing kept back.
Keep cool and clean.

Importance, ers by the American Hawaiian steamers rela
tive to a meeting to be held Monday of next week tit the Masonic
Temple to consider matters in connection with the quarantine fund
at the disposal of the importers for just such purposes as the
recent outbreak of cholera in Honolulu has made necessary.
It is of the utmost importance that every importer should be
present and participate in the meeting. While under the strict
quarantine regulations that the Federal Government enforces it is
uot likely that the disease will become general it is the duty of
every one to use the utmost precautious to prevent the spread of
the disease and as it is already in the metropolis it may last for
some time before it is entirely eradicated and as it is one of the
most fatal and treacherous of diseases it is the duty of every one
to do his share in the prevention of the spread of the disease.
Wilfley Denies Charges.
HONOLULU, Dec. 20. -L. R. Wil
fley, judge of the United States Court
at Shanghai, the man who has achiev
ed considerable notoriety on account
of his action in disbarring from-prac
tice in his court Lorrin Andrews and
other American lawyers, arrived in
town this morning ou the Manchuria
on his way to Washington.
Judge Wilfley declines to discuss
the matter of his troubles with An
drews. "That is a matter of court
record," he said this morning, "and
I do not care to be quoted in reference
to it " However, the judge did make
some statements concerning the
statements of the former Attorney
General of Hawaii.
Judge Wilfley denies that the An
drews matter is what is taking him
to the States. "My object in going
to Washington," he said, "is to try
to get Congress to extend a code of
laws to Americans io China. We
have beeu living under the old com
mon law, but this has become inade
quate, and we need a better code. It
has been proposed to have the Cali
joroia code adopted as best suited to
conditions in China, and I think pos
sibly this will be done.
"Another matter which is taking
me to the Capitol is to try to get
Congress to make appropriation for
a Federal, building at Shanghai for
the United States Court. At present
we are holding court in the old con
sular building, which is very much
unsuited for the purpose, and we need
a new building.
"I do not care to discuss my trou-
bles with Mr. Andrews. That is a
matter of court record and I Co not
think I ought to say anything about
Upon being pressed as to the
charges that have been made against
him of unfairness toward certain
American lawyer iuSha ghai, Judge
Wilfley denied that there had been
any unfairness. "Some of them," le
said, "we disbarred or not permitted
to practice in my court either on ac
count of moral unfitness or because
they failed to pass the examination
which I gave. As to Mr. Andrews,
he took the examination and failed to
pass, somewhat to my surprise,
Later ou he was admitted, but is now
"Is this on account of any moral
unfitness?" the Judge was asked.
"Well, there are largos pending
against Mr. Andrews in the United
States Court of Appeals at Washing
ton, and for that reason lie is not al
lowed to practice in my court."
"Are those charges personal
charges preferred by you?"
"No, M-. Andrews is charged with
having filed false affidavits in a case
and making false charges against
certain court officers." Although the
Judge did not say so, it is understood
that the court officers referred to
are the judge himself.
'"There are now. five American
lawyers admitted to practice in the
United States Court of Shaughai.
Two took the examination and pass
ed just before I left ttyre," contiuu
ed the Judge. Those who can now
practice are W. S. Flemming, E. A.
Douthitt, R. A. Frost, W. Heen and
"Positively," concluded Judge Wil
fley, "the Andrew; matter has noth
ing to do with my trip to the State."
Lorrin Andrews is in Honolulu
now also, and it is possible that both
he and Judge Wilfley will be passen
gers on the Manchuria tomorrow for
The following appears in the Cable
news -American of November 23. '
Shanghai, Nov. 22. Ititet.se feel
ing has been aroused in Shanghai by
the highhanded actions of Judge Wil
fley of the United States Court for
China. He has attacked one of the
oldest, most i-acred and best recog
qized privileges of the English press
of this city. In the Do Menil case
Judge Wilfley ordered the Shanghai
Mercury, a British daily, 'o testify!
as tojts sources of information. It
is an open and well-grounded right
of the press here that it cannot be
compelled to divulge the names of
those who give it information, and
