SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 0, 1909
Honolulu, October 28. Oil,
thick and very thick was wauder
ing all over the harbor yesterday
and the day before. It clung deft
ly to the white paint on the yachts
It Beeped sweetly above thp copper
pant and piled itself on itself tin
til it was almost an inch thick.
A sampan tsV t ft craft, it is
not a Bhip, it is not even a real
fishing boat. These things are
ugly enough with their twice-paid
for gasoline smell producers, villi
six Japanese working on the car
bureter and fourteen on the fly
wheel, but they look much worse
. with sides smeared with oil.
And then the vachts. The Char
lotte C, as dainty and pretty a
little'veBsel as ever swam off the
ways, lying at her moorings off the
Myrtle boat club, rising and dipp
ing to the gentle swell that is all
that the Kona wind can send past
the bar, stoops not to a gentle kiss
from Mother Ocean, but to the
smudgy lick of as foul and greasy
a harbor surface as ever disgraced
Even the poor old Galloping
MaJy. Moored on an outhaul be
tween the Healani boathouse and
the pilot house, in a quiet nook,
protected by a perfect city of piles
from the octopus like feelers of the
oil, was covered from counter to
waterline witfi n coating of the
filthy substance. Along the water
line the oil was a full quarter of
an inh thick. Coal oil would
hardly make an impression on the
horrid stuff and a cold-chisel had
its edge blunted by trying to .chip
the mass off the side of the boat.
Now the oil has drifted away.
Where does it come from? Nobody,
knows and nobody . is guilty, but
it is there iust the same.

and congratulatory gifts poured in
on the Admiral throughout the day,
and he received them smiling, de

that Cook was the lirst man there.
"The Cook-IVary controversy is
somewhat similar to the - Sampson

A Million Dollars
To Fight Hookworm.
' New York, Oetolier !. John I).
Rockefeller has announced that he
will give a million dollars to light
the hookworm which it is claimed is
responsible for the miserable condi
tion of many thousands of people in
the South. Mr. Rockefeller provides
in making his limnilieent donation

The appalling condition of thou

of the South, and of a large proo-
t ion of the negro imputation, also,
has recently Ik-cii discovered to be
due, not to laziness and general
shiftlessness, as was for a long time
supiMised, tint to the presence in the
tinman lmdy of a parasite called the
hookworm. Thorough scientific in
vestigation has disclosed the fact
that this parasite saps the blood and
therewith the energy of its victim,
producing dullness, listlessitess and
often death. Many of the victims
of the hookworm, in the worst stages
of the disease, become addicted to
the dirt-eating habit, and are called
throughout the South, "clay-cat
The extremely unsanitary condi
tions that prevail throughout many
listricts of the South are said to lie
largely responsible for the prevalence
of the hookworm disease. Most of
the negroes are the living homes of
hookworm colonics, but are appar
ently little or not at all affected by
the parasite, but an? capable of
spreading the disease among their
ess immune white neighbors.
In some, districts there is hardly
a person who is not alllicted with
the hookworm disease, which in the
end. either kills its victim or renders
the person alllicted incapable of earn
ing a living. It is believed now that
this disease is largely accountable
for the slowness of certain of the
southern States in catching up with
the rest of the country as regards

Paris, October 1.1 The fate of
the revolutionist Ferrer, who wag
'executed at Rareelona today, has
aroused since the beginning of his
trial intense interest in France,
The Paris papers today devote
pages to the case.
The expressions in the morning
papers, prepared for publication
before the sentence of death had
been carried out, indicate the feel
ing here. Even those sheets which
are most moderate in tone express
ed the hope that King Alfonso
would intervene to prevent the
consummation of the "political
assassination"' of "a revolutionary
idealist," while the radical papers
indulge in the most violent lan
guage, placing responsibility for
Ferrer's condemnation upon the
supremacy of the clerical reaction
M. Jaures, the deputy who yes
terday addressed a mass meeting
of protest, had an interview in a
morning paper in which he pre
dicted that if Ferrer was shot a
conflagration would be-started
which would not be extinguished
until "Spanish political life has
been purged of the clerical in
fluences which are paralyzing the
progress of the nation and shocking
the conscience of Europe.''
Ferrer's daughter, who has been
working in a biscuit factory, is to
day prostrated by the news of his
Barcelona, October 13 Prof.
Francisco Ferrer," the Spanish edu
cator and convicted revolutionist,
was shot today.
The execution wa done at the
Fortress of Montjuich, where the
prisoner had been confined since
his condemnation by rourtmartial.
The doomed man faced the firing
squad without flinching a'nd fell
dead at the first vol fey.
Ferrer, except for a momentary
expression of emotion immediately
preceding his death, retained his
composure to the last. His attor
ney, M. Oalceran, who had defend
ed the prisoner so loyally as to
bring about his own arrest for im
properly addressing the court, had
secured permission for a brief .talk
with the revolutionist before the
laMer was led to the ditch where
he was to die.
To his attorney Ferrer spoke
feelingly of the work for which he
had sacrificed his life and the
future of 4iis daughter, whose brave
attempt to save his life touched
the fatherDiore deeply, apparent
ly, than any other incident of his
trial and conviction.
On Ferrer's arrest his family was
left dependent upon this daughter,
who at once secured employment in
a biscuit factory. When it was
known that' her father ha I been
sentenced to death the daughter
made u personal appeal to King
Alfonso, calling upon him in the
name of his known generosity and
chivalry to spare her fathers' life.
When these facts were related bv

sacraments and turned away from

and Charity who had been sent by

When the hour of Ids execution
arrived he walked bravely through
the prison yard to the ditch in the
shadow of the encircling wall.
Without quiver he faced the twelve
infantry men, who, at the word of
command fired simultaneously.
When the report of the volley
had died away Ferrer lay dead up
on the ground.
Previous to the execution precau
tions had been taken to forestall a
possible attempt at rescue by doub

of the fortress.
Doctor Cook Hopes
to Settle -Doubts.
Missoula. Montana, October 2.
Dr. Frederick A. Cook, who is tour
ing the West lecturing, made a
statement here yesterday in the
course of an address, that he will
at last take steps to present to the
world substantial proofs of the
validity of his claim as the dis
coverer of the. North Pole.
He stated that the arrangements
have been completed to bring to
America, the Eskimos who accom
panied him on what, if verified,
will be bis remarkable dash to the
apex of the world.
According to his statement, the
natives will not be brought here
until next September, almost a
year hence, and although he gave
no reasons for his delay in advanc
ing "this, his greatest proof, it it
understood that traveling and
climatic conditions are responsible.
Knud Rasniussen is now in
Greenland examining the Eskimos
belonging to tbeeame.tribe as those
who accompanied Doctor Cook,
and has sent word to the civilized I
world that the explorer's story is
correct. Wonder has been express
ed that lvasmussen does not bring
these men back with him and
settle the question which is at
present causing so much bitter finding.

The foregoing is copied from the
label on a little 2 drahni bottle, now
in Hilo. Printed, on each side of
the label, arc the following:
'This preparation contains about
50 MT cent absolute alcohol by
"Guaranteed under the United
States Pure Food Law."
With the guarantee, if reliable',
the mixture is evidently not injurious
to health. The two words ''Scotch
Whiskey'' arc stamped on the label
by a rubber stamp, indicating that
the mixture might be equally use
ful in making brandy, liqueurs, hair
oil or tooth wash.
The liquid contents are of a light
brown color, the smell is peculiar
and unrecognizable by those who
atve attempted to solve its mystery.
When caked around the cork it be
comes black and like thick molasses,
and the smell is stronger and of a
more objectionable character-
