SATURDAY. JANUARY 2. 1909
Aloha llenning. With the first Monday this month Mr William
Ilcnning , Chairman of the County hoard of supervisors since the in
ccption of County Government retires. Much of the success of County
government on Maui is due to him, and he goes out with the warm
aloha of County employees who found in him a pleasant and con
siderate oflicial superior.
Organic Law It seems some of our people are getting
Change Scare, unduly worried over the recommendations
made by Governor Froar to amend the Organic Act. Else
where in this issue is published h list of the proposed amendments
and they appear to be drawn on lines generally considered very
necessary by public bodies and the newspapers and seem to be
devoid of harm to the interests of the community. The real seat
of the uneasy feeling, which is being industriously cultivated in
certain circles for certain purposes, is in the fear that some ofli
cial in Washington might get in his work and have these changes
go farther than wanted by the people of these Islands. Washing
ton might slip in a word or two which would put these Islands
llatly on the list of mere possessions. They might do it for the
innocent or playful purpose of giving us another snub or a scare
just as the boys did who threw stones into the frog pond, and that
would be bad for us as it was hard on tha frogs.
But why worry? Washington is under the lime light, and the
minute a move in this direction shows itself we can all get togeth
er and shout and get the Congressmen, now more intent on watch
ing the pork barrel for a fat appropriation than in doing anything
mean and harmful, to drop an unpleasant subject like that.
Tuberculosis and Elsewhere is given a list of figures showing
its Increase. an astounding increase of deaths from the
ravages of the white plague. An increase from 5 deaths of nine years
ago to CO for the last year, or 1,200 per cent, ought to set our thinking
people to devising ways for checking the spread of the dread disease.
In an interview the local government physician, Dr. R. II. Dinegar
states the increase is not as alarming as it appears but is due more to
the care with which investigations are made into the cause when a
death takes place. Many deaths which otherwise would have been re
ported under former conditions as due to asthma or any other disease
are now correctly reported with the above astonishing results.
The disease is largely confined to the poorer people, Hawaiian? and
Japanese, and its vigorous spread ascribed to the way of living adopt
ed by them, that of sleeping together in small poorly ventilated
Why not have the County put up a hospital for the treatment of
tuberculous patients, admitted by physicians to be a source of infection
and danger to the healthy? Will nothing be done to savo people from
falling victims to an insiduous disease which the records show to have
increased twelve hundred per cent in nine years?
Health and In this issue is published an able paper on moral
Morals. training in schools by Rev. R. B. Dodge. We com
mend the article to our readers, especially to heads of families.
The subject touched upon is a delicate one, and difficult to practice
owing to the old fashioned ideas of modesty so industriously
taught in the olden days to the people of these Islancs.
In the good old days, the missonaries devoted all their atten
tion to the spiritual welfare of the flick to the utter neglect of
mere care of the body, for with them a good man need not bo
well washed one, the washing part was secondary only.

freely in promicuous bathing the doctrine of bathing but once a

Cleanliness next to godliness is an old saying and we are glad
the teaching of the doctrines for the care of bodily health and mo
rals are no longer to be neglected for the merely spiritual teach

Price on the Head of
Dr. Sun Yet Sen.
I he Dog Progressive people despise knockers, but under
Nuisance righteous provocation we can't help doing it even
if wo knock the fair reputation of this line little town into n cocked
hat. This is said with refrence to dogs. Our streets are swarm
ing with dogs. To count them is like trying to count flos, Vhcv
are that thick and movable and pesky. We see them by day and
we near their music or howls by night. They gambol on the
sidewalks as if tho County fathers built and reserved it for their
'special use. They crowd people off the sidewalk and our hired
man a natural born lover of dogs have oftentimes stepped into
the mud to avoid their too friendly gamboling and snapping of
teeth. These bothersome canines fill the streets every day, chas
ing after autos and yelping at riders on restive horses, or holding
down the sidewalk discussing anything interesting to dogdoin,
from dog ffghls down to the threatened scarcity of beef hones, in
cident to the rise in the price of beef. The other day one of them
bit our dog lover, the hired man, in the leg, an evidence of pro
offered friendship probably, but he flew off the handle. Came back
got a club and wanted to go ouc and murder dogs, but was persu
aded to desist, for fear of being hauled in by the humane officer
for cruelly to aninals, which showed dogs are protected by liw.
Away with dogs. Wailuku does not want to get the reputation
of a second Consrantinople as a dog resort, even though it might
attract friendly mention in tourist books.
Protect us from dogs. Have the supervisors pass an ordinance
directing dogs to he muzzled when on the streets and our dog
troubles will be at an end, or to be more practical send tho dog
catcher after them and get them off the streets, and the town will j
remain peaceful and couienteJ ever after.
According to recent reports Dr.
Sun is badly wanted by the Chinese
government, which has act a price
of HOO.OtX) tads, on the head of the
revolutionist. The Chinese authori
ties want him had and want
him dead or alive if the re
ports are to le lclieyed. And
the offer of a big price, which
amounts to a fortune in China, has
set secret sneaking assassins on the
still hunt for the revolutionist.
It is from these latter that the
Chineie revolutionist has to watch
out against. An attempt was made
recently to poison the revolutionist
who makes his headquarters in
Minpao, Tokio, for which three sus
picious characters have lcen arrest
ed. The Japanese police is report
ed to have found some drugs and
clues which led to the arrest.
Rumor has it that the Chinese
government is seeking to destroy
the revolutionist and his assistants
by fair or foul means, and offered
the reward stated alove with that
in view. As reported 300,000 taels
is offered for the head of Dr. Sun
Yet Sen, 100,000 for Huany Using,
and a much lower figure for the
lesser revolutionists. Wang is the
man accused of playing the traitor
in seeking to encompass the death
of others by poison with a view to
claiming the reward offered. Wang
seems to have been regarded by his
compatriots as a spy in the interest
of the Chinese government, and
while the chief leaders of the
Chinese revolutionaries were in
Court where one of their party was
on trial Wang called and got into a
conversation with one Tang, a mem
ber of tlie revolutionaries.
Wang had some tea which lie
hrough with him, claiming it to be
a special article, and had the house
maid steep it preparatory to a sip of
the cup which cheers but doth not
inebriate. Wang did not offer to
try the tea so after he had gone the
maid tried it and was immediately
taken with cramps in the stomach.
On examination it was found that
the tea contained poison, and it is
believed Wang came there with the
intention of poisoning the revolu
tionaries. It is in the face of such perils as
these that Mrs. Ahmi, 'mother of
Dr. Sun left peaceful Maui and
sought to return to her son taking
with her Mrs. Dr. Sun, hcrdaught
er-in-law, and the two children of
