"Let us check this undesirable

to transform ourselves itito a body

approach the work with the feeling
that the motives of our associates

every member suspects his neighbor
of putting up a job on the com

the instrumentality of the Board to
counteract it. The organization is
a public organization and as such
should seek only to carry out the
worthy objects for which it was
founded, viz: To promote the gen

adjacent thereto, and especially to
secure consideration of questions
regarding public matters and im

a strong civic organization and

Instead of teaching the office
holder of the dangers of corrupt use
of his office, time and experience
appears only to add to the list of
official pilferers. Dishonesty in
office has never paid, even though
for a time a corrupt ring of office
holders has seemed to flourish.
The example made of every offender
of the law and morals in violating
a public trust is not without its les
sons. Public officials arc public
servants, and in assuming the duties
of office he has undertaken to faith
fully and conscientiously carry out
the trust imposed on him. The
satisfaction of services well per
formed and the salary attached
should be his reward. He who as
pires to office as a quick and sure
way of wealth will discover too soon
that dishonesty in official life is a
short route to disgrace and the jail.
Last week willi his assistant inspector
Caccras, n systematic house to house in
soectiou was inaugurated. A treatment
of kerosene was first given to cesspools
through the medium of house drains, lor
olten the eggs of the mosquito from
closet tanks are flushed down into the
cesspool, where they hatch out, later to
find exit through the vent pipes, For this
purpose keeosine is found to more effec
tive and convenient than crude oil.
Crude oil is cheaper for application to
large areas desired to be treated with oil.
It is more lasting but is more difficult to
handle. By the last steamer, Mr. Bowman
received it high pressure pump from the
Board of Health to be used for spraying
the oil, and which he will rake with him
on his tours of investigation. The Ship
per's Wharf Committee, realizing the
necessity of maintaining strict sanitary
conditions in Hilo, have placed at the
disposal of the health authorities all the
crude oil necessary for this work.
In the mosquito campaign which has
begun in an earnest, systematic manner,
the first step will be to look after cess
pools and vaults; 2d cleaning back yards;
3rd removal of standing pools; 4th clean-

Inspector Bowman has begun a series
of experiments in the propogatton and
dcvelomneut of the various kinds of
mosquito common to these islands. He
has it number of glass jars containing
water over which is tightly stretched
inosouito netting. When it is desired to
test samples of water taken from a certain
locality or to examine the characteristics
of a certain variety of mosquito, these
glass containers are brought into requisi
tion. In one jar there was exhibited the
ordinary night mosquito in the various
stuges of development, from the freshly
laid egg to the full blown "skeeter." In
mother jar there were samples of the
day mosquito. The latter is distinguished
bv stripes on its legs and body and its
characteristic habit of getting in its
deadly tsork without the musical accom
paniment of singing, so common with
the night variety. The "yellow fever"
mosquito is known as the "town" species
and the most dangerous to the public
health of a community. It breeds almost
exclusively about residences and is
seldom found outside of city limits. The
eggs are almost invariably found in nrti
Ileal collections of clear water about
dwellings. This latter species is the
mosquito against which the authorities
arc giving their earnest attention, al
though all other varieties will come
within their war of destruction.
K. A. Mott-Smilh, the Commissioner
appointed by Judge Parsons to admeasure
the widow's dower in the Estate of

Jllhi'iirrlnge of Justice.
There came near being a miscarriage of
justice on Wednesday last when Clerk
Gurney of the Fourth Circuit Court read
the verdict in the damage suit of Jacintho
Fernandez vs. Kvuu de Silva aud II. S.
Overend. After occupying a week's
time of the Court, the case w.ts submitted
to the jury on Tuesday last. The jurors
remained out all night nnd on Wednes
day morning brought in their verdict.
Clerk Gurney in reading the verdict
mistook the amount for f 2,500 damages
against each nf the defendants. When
Judge Parsons asked of the jury, "Is this
your verdict, gentlemen?," there was no
response for n few seconds, then it
voice from the rear from Juryman Barron
answered "no." When questioned by
the Court, he said, "It's too much." Ap
parently the jury wer not unanimous as
to the amount, despite the verdict which
had been read. Further explanations
were made, other jurors taking part in
the discussion, when closer inspection of
the document read by Clerk Gurney de
veloped the fact that he hnd mistaken
the f 25.00 for f 2,500. When tills error
was pointed out to the Court, the verdict
was read aloud n second time correctly
uud ordered to stand.
This makes the second trial of the
same ibsues involved. The first case was
a suit for f 10,000 damages brought by
