Uorernor Scored 011 Urountl of Un

Dr. Cooper's resignation as presi
dent of the Hoard of Health, which
like that of every departmental head
was placed without date in the
Governor's hands when he was ap
pointed, was accepted hy Governor
Carter yesterday afternoon. This
happened after the Governor had
received from Dr. Cooper a letter
replying to his communication to
the president aud members of the
Board printed in the Sunday Ad
vertiser. In this letter Dr. Cooper
stated that the communication just
mentioned would be considered at a
meeting of the Board to be held at
3 p. m. yesterday.
The situation is now peculiar.
At the meeting yesterday afternoon,
attended by all the members except
the Attorney General, it was the
unanimous sentiment that Dr.
Cooper's treatment by Governor
Carter was unfair and uncalled for.
The other members not only made
no move toward resigning their
seats, but they strongly urged Dr.
Cooper to retain his membership,
which he holds by commission from
Governor Dole. When his resigna
tion as president was put into effect
by Governor Carter, he had not yet
received his commission for the
office, it having been in abeyance
pending confirmation by the Senate.
This fact of itself was taken by the
Board as making the Governor's
action appear so much the more
Dr. Cooper had not given a de
cided answer to his colleagues about
'retaining his membership when the
It was air executive session, but
an Advertiser reporter who returned
to the place of meeting by appoint
ment with Dr. Mays was invited to
be present some time before the
close. In the meantime Dr. Mays
had submitted a written statement
of the Board's position to his col
leagues, by whom it was approved
and permitted for publication.
This document is printed herewith
and contains the substance of much
that was stated a the meeting in
presence of the reporter.
Dr. Cooper mentioned, with re
gard to the general desire that he
remain on the Board as a member,
that for some time past he had con
templated retiring, yet in view of
the unanimous confidence in him
expressed by his colleagues he
doubted if it was proper for him to
resign while they were all under
fire together. When the disposition
to adjourn became manitest, Dr.
Cooper reminded the members that
he would not be their presiding
officer at next meeting.
The response to this reminder was
a unanimous vote of thanks to the
retiring presideut, recognizing his
ability and courtesy as such and his
great services to the Board and the
community. Dr. Cooper, replying
briefly, mentioned with satisfaction
the work accomplished in organiz
ing the city sanitary service and
the starting of new buildings for
the Insane Asylum.
Dr. Mays remarked on the fact
that the Board fed and cared for
1 200 sick people on Molokai, besides
having charge of the Insane Asylum
aud its inmates, and remarks were
general around the table that the
Board had made greater reductions
than most of the other departments.
The Board of Education was speci
ally mentioned as having made no
reduction of specific salaries other
than the voluntary one of its head.
Those present at the meeting were
Dr. C. B. Cooper, Fred. C. Smith,
Mark P. Robinson, Dr. W. H.
Mays, John C. Lane and E. C.
. As the situation exists the Board
of Health is without an executive
head and none can be appointed
from outside of the membership,
which is limited by statute to two
physicians, four laymen and the
Attorney General exofficto. With
regard to the president's office, one
of the things mentioned yesterday
was that the law tloes not require
the president to give his full time
to the duties of the office. Dr.
Cooper stated that he had regularly
devoted four hours a day to the
business of the Board. Stress was
laid by members on the fact that
the president was performing the
duties of the fotmer executive officer
at the same salary, so that no in
crease of expense ensued when the
president's office was made n salari

chins yesterday said he had noth
ing that he could make public at
this time regarding the prospects of

mated that everything was well and
there would be something doing in
the company's affairs very shortly.
