Honolulu, July 15. "Since the
physicians of the cily nre unani
mously of the opinion that the den
gue fever is the result of the dili
gent work of the pestiferous 'mos
quito, why it is that the Hoard of
Health does not get in and start n
crusade against these pests that bite
in the night?" is a question was
asked a liullctin reporter this morn
ing by a young man who had just
emerged from the mysteries of the
The Bulletin reporter put the
question to Dr. C. U. Cooper, presi
dent 'of the Board of Health, who
answered as follows:
"We have been agitating that
very question and, at the present
time, although no plan of campaign
has been nrranged against the de
scendants of the pioneer mosquito
from San Bias, still interest in the
matter is growing faster than the
spread of the bothersome dengue
and we expect soon to be organized
for the fight.
"Of course, the Government has
not the funds to purchase all the
oil that would be necessary to
cover the surfaces of the bogs
swamps, patches and other places
where the young mosquito lives
and has its being and for a great
deal of this necessary article we
will have to depend on the business
community and others who lor
various reasons would like to hear
the joyful knell of the departing
"We of the Board of Health have
been agitating the matter for we
icalize the great benefit that would
result from a standpoint of health
and also from that of attracting
tourists to the Islands. If the one
line, 'There are no mosquitoes in
Hawaii,' could be put on our ad
vertising matter that goes to the
Mainland, it would certainly prove
a great drawing card. Add to this,
'Neither is there any dengue or
malaria,' and you will have tourists
coming here by the thousands.
"The plan I have in mind is this.
We will assume charge of the cam
paign and will use our inspectors to
do the work of spreading the oil of
death to mosquitoes. We have al
ready succeeded in interesting D.
L. Van Dine of the U. S. Agricul
tural Experiment Station, some of
the instructors at Kamehameha and
some of the business men, includ
ing among whom is P. M. Pond,
one of the principal workers in the
interests of the Research Club.
"We expect to get together very
soon and then we can decide better
what to do. A regular campaign
will have to be instituted with a
certain amount of territory assigned
to each one of our inspectors."
Asked as to proposed new work
under the appropriation bill coming
directly under the superintendence
of the Board of Health, Dr. Cooper
stated that plans and specifications
for the new insane asylum, to cost
$75,000, are now being prepared
by an architect and that this part
of the work of the department would
be pushed along as quickly as pos
sible for the inmates of the institu
tion are sadly in lack of a new place,
the old building having already
served its usefulness.
The Board of Health is atpresent
looking around for a new site for
the insane asylum, the present lo
cation being deemed unfavorable to
the best interests of the inmates. It
may be that a site some distance
, out of town where all is quiet and
there is nothing to obstruct the free
, passage of the tradewinds, will be

of Health has in mind is a new

Ihuixliler llrliiKft Suit to Recover
Honolulu, July 15. C la us
Sprockets is reaping trouble anew
from his hasty resolution, after the
revolution of 1893, to be rid of all
of his Hawaiian possessions.
Yesterday a suit was entered in
the Circuit Court here on behalf of
his alienated daughter, Mrs. Wat
son, to ilispossess the venerable
multimillionaire of property in the
business heart of Honolulu which
stands 011 the tax books at a valua
tion of $400,000, and to judicially
assess him in damages to the
amount of $100,000 as the rental of
the property during its alleged
The property in question consti
tutes the entire city block bounded
by Fort, Queen, Alakea and Mer
chant streets, excepting only the
lots whereon are standing the Stan
genwald, Jttdd and Mutual Tele
phone Co. buildings.
Pursuant to his resolution already
mentioned, Mr. Spreckcls conveyed
his controlling interest in the vast
Sprcckclsvillc plantation, owned in
the name of the Hawaiian Com
mercial & Sugar Co., to his sons.
The inter-family litigation that
started over that enterprise is now
an old story.
To his only daughter, Kmma
Claiidiua, the old gentleman con
veyed all of the Honolulu business
property involved in the present
suit. Miss Sprockets in 1897 or
thereabout raJi away with Mr.
Watson to San Jose and was there
married to him. A telegram to
ask forgiveness and their blessing
was the first intimation her parents
were given of the match.
Mr. Spreckels raged over the
marriage and was implacable, in
later communications between
father and daughter in San Fran
cisco, Mrs. Watson, stung by the
parentals taunts of past kindness,
informed her father that he was
welcome to a return of the Hono
lulu property. Mr. Spreckels, tak
ing her word, proceeded with a
notary and deeds to the hotel where
Mr. and Mrs. Watson were still
pursuing their honeymoon. Mrs.
Watson promptly signed the instru
ments and they were duly acknowl
edged by the notary.
Second thought probably made
Mrs. Watson repent the sacrifice,
but to all appearances hitherto
must have deemed the repentance
too late. There were the deeds, no
Here, however, there comes in
a little provision of Hawaiian law,
governing real estate under Ha
waiian jurisdiction, which indi
cates a flaw in the title of Clans
Spreckels. A little bird may have
sung a bar of the statutes of Hawaii
in the ear of Mrs. Watson away
across the Atlantic 111 a lordly
manor house of England.
The husband under Hawaiian
law has a one-third interest in his
wife's real estate, to protect which
it is provided that a woman may
not convey her real estate without
the consent of her husband.
At all events, there is one of the
biggest real estate contests now on
which has ever been entered in the
records of the Hawaiian courts.
