Quarantine Hurting Tourist
HILO, May 4. Hilo lias a very
,hig kick to make, and she is mak
ing it with no littte vigor. Because
7 she had four cases of contagious di
: sease, the last one on March 22, the
whole Island of Hawaii is still un
der a federal quarantine, and Hilo
- is suffering very severely. Her tour
l ist trade has fallen off. one-half and
, her .big now hotel is nearly empty
" except for the regular boarders, for
thejiverage tourist has lively fears
of a quarantine. He fears quaran
tine much more, as a rule, than he
fears a disease-which may bring it
I The quarantine is a federal one.
- The local agents of the territorial
hoard of Jiealth took prompt action
when the outbreak of the disease oc
curred. They quarantine and clean
ed the block in which the trouble
.was, and after a week without fur
' ther pilikia, they called off the
. quarantine, lint the United 'States
. Marino Hospital Service declared a
quarantine of the whole island, for
sixty days. According to the cus
tom of the service, sixty days is the
time, limit for quarantine, and Ha
waii is waiting the expiration of
sixty days since the last case,
' though the period of .danger passed
in five days.
"Inithc meantime the Claudine has
been withdrawn from the passenger
service, as far as passengers leaving
Hilo are concerned, and as she does
not dock in Hilo, those coming
from Honolulu have to come ashore
in boats and get ashore by a leap on
to the wharf. Tho Hilo wharf has
no steps, and the landing is worse
than that at most of the ports whore
passengers are sent ashore in boats.
A feature of the quarantine much
criticized is its application to the No
na side of the island. Kailua for ex
ample, .is really farther, in a practi
cal sense, from the locality that was
affected on March 22, than is Ho
nolulu. It is easier to get from Hilo
to Honolulu and takes less time, for
the ordinaty traveller, than to get
from Hilo to Kailua. Yet because
of a few cases of disease in Hilo six
weeks ago, citizens of Kailua are in
quarantine just the sanio as those of
Hilo. One effect has been to cause
n complete stoppage of Inter-Island
deck travel from Hawaii.
Uncle Sam is not paying many of
the expenses of this quarantine.
This is another peculiar feature of it
which arouses criticism. Tho in
tending passengers must be examin
ed and, passed by a physician before
they are allowed aboard a steamer,
and they must pay for the examina
tion themselves, outside of Hilo.
The doctor is allowed to collect a
"reasonable fee" at all places except
Hilo, which is a port, of entry and
has a salaried fedcrai quarantine of
ficer, examining passengers. The fee
is 82 or $2.50 at the various ports
along tho Kona and Kau coast.
There is no complaint about tho
sizo of tho fee, for often tho doctors
have to make a considerable trip to
examine passengers. Hut there is a
complaint that tho federal authori
ties do not pay the doctors for the
expenses of the quarantine, which
nine people out of ten think is
wholly absurd anyhow,
In Hilo fees are charged for fumi
gations of oriental baggage, and
other large shipments. Passengers
are examined by tho federal ofliccr,
however, without chiurgo to them.
There is no difficulty about getting
passage or leaving the island,
Doctor Cook Again loses
Again it is reported that the sum

banks party, financed, by August
Peterson and William MoPhee, bo
ing claimed to have been successful.
Mt. McKinley is the highest inoun
tain in North America and the high
est for northern peak in the world.
Its altitude is about 20,000 feet.
Dr. Frederick A. Cooke declared
that he had climbed to tho top and
left there records of his achieve
ment.' The truth of his assertion
was doubted, and as a result of con
troversy over this and his polar dis
covery claims the Fairbanks expe
dition was undertaken, its mem
bers say they reached the summit of
Mt. McKinley. on April 3, after a
month of steady climbing from tho
base of the mountain. No traces of

There is' a disposition in some
quarters to question ' whether the

triumph. The critics say tho snow

of Mt. McKinley, which lies only
300 miles south of tho Arctic circle.
Aconcagua, in South America, is
about 3000 feet higher than McKin
ley, but Aconcagua is in tho tem
perate zone (33 .south latitude) and
easily accessible from Chile and Ar

culties as Mt. Mckinliy, yet the

It is unfortunate that a mist of
doubt should continue to envelop
this Alaskan peak. There aro two
peaks of like height, one covered
with snow and tho other by rocks,
according to the account of the Fair
banks men, who are said to be ex
perienced mountaineers. Their re
port is credited by Prof. Herchel
Parker of Columbia, who was a
member of "Dr. Cook's expedition
when that explorer said ho had as
cended tho mountain alone. Dr.
Parker disputes, tho Cook claim.

Damage Suit Against Sugar
Co, Thrown Out.
The supreme court handed down
an opinion Friday in tho matter of
Manuel Garcia, by his next friend,
Antonio Garcia, versus Kekaha
Sugar. Company. It "appears that
the boy, who was suing for $15,000
damages, loses his case. The deci
sion, written by Chief Justice' Hart'
The text of the opinion is as fol
lows : ,
The plaintiff, a minor, brought
by his next friend this action to re
cover the sum of 15,000 for per
sonal injuries resulting from negli
gence in stopping without warning
and at an unusual place a train of
open flat cars, on one of which the
minor was riding, and from defec
tive appliances, guards and coup
lings. The . defendant's demurrer
to tho declaration .on the ground
that "it appears that tho cause of
action attempted to be set forth is
barred by limitation of the time by
reason of and Under the provisions
of Act 113 of the Session Laws, of
1907," Was sustained, and tho plain
tiff electing to stand by. his declara
tion judgement, was entered for the
defendant the plaintiff excepting
thereto as well as to the order sus
taining the demurrer.
"The claim of the plaintiff is that
Act 113, whichdimits the bringing
of such actions to onoycar after tho
cause occurred, is subject to'the.pror
vision (Sec. 1979 It. L.) of -Jho gen
earl statute of limitations (S.cc. 1971
It. L.) by which if a person receiv
ing personal injuries is within the
iige of twenty years tho time of six
years therein limited for bringing
his action does not begin' to run un
til ho reaches his majority.
"The1 argument in substance is
that the statute which makes this
provision for disability is not ex
pressly repealed by Act 113 and is
not repealed by implication since,
as tho plaintiff claims, there is noth
ing in the provision for disability
which is. necessarily inconsistent
with Act 113. A large number of
cases aro cited to tho effect that re
peals by implication are not favor
ed, which is true, in the meaning
that the implication ought to be
quite clour, but our statute, with
tins modification, fixes tho rule on
1 ho repeal of a. law is either
express or implied; it is express
when it is literally declared bv a
subsequent law; it is implied when
tno new law contains provisions con
trary to, or irreconcilable with thoso.
of the former law.' Sec. 21 it. L.
Act 113 S. L. 1907 enacts: 'Ac
tions for tho recovery of compensa
tion for damage or injury to persons
or property must bo instituted with
in one year next after tho causo of
action accrued, and not after. Pro
vided that actions, on such causes,
which accrued prior to tho aimroval
of this Act, if otherwise barred there
by, may be brought within one vonr
after such approval and not latter.'
. This last enactment on tho sub
ject does-not purport to amend Sec.
191 lv. I,, and is inclusive of all cases
i ho argument of hardship to tho
minor ip not being allowed untill ho
becomes of ago to bring his action
presents a aucstion of legislative noli-
cy which" wo aro not at liberty to con
