A I'inlon SoiiRht For Cattle Thief.
A third appeal has been made to Act
ing Governor Atkinson for the pardon of
Joe Cordeiro, a Forlugucsc who is serving
a two years' term for cattle stealing in
Hamakua. Cordeiro, who has been n
model prisoner, has a wife and four
small children. The wife hns to support
her little ones and it is claimed Cordeiro
was only an employee of his two asso
ciates, who were likewise convicted and
given the same sentence. Cordeiro has
served the greater part of his sentence
and when the petition for his release was
brought to Governor Carter about six
months ago, that official recommended
that that the appeal lay over until he had
served half of his term. When the case
was referred to the Hawaii Hoard of
Inspectors, consisting of E. N. Holmes,
W. II. Hcers and A. II. Lindsay for in
vestigation and report, the latter who is
familiar with all the circumstances of the
case, refused to give his consent. As
Chairman Holmes is nbseut on the coast
and a majority vote of the Hoard Is re
quired to grant a pardon, no action can
be taken until his return.

The departure of former manager Geo.
Ross nnd wife of Hakalau was marked
with many affecting scenes, which showed
the regard in which this good couple
were held by the employees of the Haka
lau l'lautatiou. On last Wednesday
evening a number of those connected
with the plantation, who have been asso
ciated with Manager Ross for many years
past, gathered at his home nt Hakalau to
present him and Mrs. Ross with tokens
of their affection. II. V. Fatten on be
half of himself and his associates pre
sented Mr. Ross with n handsome alli
gator leather suit case, in the lid of
which was a traveling set mounted in
silver. Each article of the set was
marked with the recipient's monogram.
Mrs. Ross received n gold baud ring,
with a large single pearl setting. In
thanking his friends for the gift, Mr.
Ross spoke 'feelingly and with emotion
of the fifteen years of association with
most of those present, which must needs
be brought to an cud because of his fail
Mr. and Mrs. Ross departed on Friday
for Honolulu where they will visit for a

Temporary School (uurterri.
Owing to the desire to retain the first .
class of the High School in the Union
School building, it has been necessary to '
change some of the rooms of the lower I
grades. The English primary depart-1
mcut, under Miss Miua Maby, has been '
transferred to the cottage formerly occu
pied by Daniel Forter on Volcano Street
near Church Street. The lowest primary
grade of the Union School will move out
iinil occupy the small school room oppo-'
site the Union School. Hy this means,
the High School classes will be given
three recitation rooms on the upper floor
of the Union School building.

A MATTER OF HEALTH
Under the new liquor license law,
wholesalo liquor dealers are permitted to
sell liquors iu any quantity, under their
wholesale license. Taking advantage of
this fuct each of the wholesale houses
have established buirets in conjunction
with their wholesale business. J, S.
Cauario has opened a bullet in the rear
of his establishment; W, C. Peacock &
Co., Ltd., have a well equipped sideboard
in their place of business and the firm of
II. Hackfeld & Co, are fitting up an
elaborate wine room opening on Front
street, where the tastes of the most
fastidious can be taken care of hi the hot
to Public Health
Editor of Tkiiiunh: Hilo has been
declared by Dr. Cofer and by Mr. Pink
ham to be in a sanitary condition all
but the swamp back of Front street. As
this may lead to misconception I will try
to give a faint idea of this swamp which
these gentlemen condemn, nnd which
can be so easily, and cheaply drained
and cleansed that it it almost criminal to
delay doing so, and do away with the
The laud from what is known as "Mud
Lane" to the lily ponds back of the
Hackfeld lumber yards is all more or less
swampy, as can be readily seen by walk
ing along the banks of the canal; but it
is only when the slough iiiauka of the
Hackfeld stables is renched, that it
assumes a really dangerous nature. It
cannot be seen from the road; and it is
doubtful if one could get within fifty feet
of the water at that point on account of
From the lily ponds to where tin- R. R.
crosses the swamp on the way to the
Portuguese Mill, it is one body of stag
nant water, In some places 30 feet deep,
nnd from 800 to 1200 feet long, into
which has been poured malatses from
the mill; refuse from the houses along
its line, and along the Hue of the
streams; the drainage froui Smithville.
This refuse remains iu the swamp; there
is 110 current to carry it olf. For years
this has been going on, until the soil is
literally sodden with Impurities; it stinks.
There is u rank growth of rushes along
its sides. No one can look upon it for u
moment without being impressed with
its deadly menace to the health of the
This slough, swamp, marsh, call it what
you will, is connected with Smithville
by n straight gutter into which is appar
ently emptied or drained all the waste of
that thickly settled part of town. No
blame attaches to these people, no other
means of disposing of their waste has
beeu provided for them. The sewer built
at a cost of many thousands of dollars
and months of inconvenience and loss to
the business of Front Street is useless to
tliem, because unfinished; both ends
The writer remembers a comparatively
clear stream ut that point, it is now so
unspeakably filthy that it lias been con
demned as dangerous to meddle with,
and a new course is being dug to carry
the same waste to the swamp, ruerc to
remain as before.
The laud from the R. R. to Pouahawai
street back of Mooheau Park has
standing water (foul) over most of it,
probably the overflow from the gutter,
and is more or loss sodden with the Im
purities spoken of. Sec it for yourself
Mr. Editorl See if Urn statement is over
drawn. Physicians all condemn it; com
mon sense condemns it. We are all of us
cognizant of the inevitable results of
filth, delayed perhaps, but only for a
Diphtheria cases have appeared iu diff
erent parts of town; a new case last week;
fevers have their starting point from this
centre; no better breeding place for
deadly germs can be found anywhere 011
the face of the globe. The costly lesson
given by New Orleans is still before us.
All who have seen this place agree that
immediate relief is imperative: and still
we hesitate, while the remedy is so
simple, so inexpensive, and so prompt in
action that no property interests of any
kind whatever should be allowed to stand
iu the way.
The remedy nnd nil old residents will
agree as to its elucacy Is to open the
mouth of the Waiolama river by the
Hackfeld lumber yard. One day's work
with the prisoners would open it; it
would cost but little to keep it open: and
the bridge required by the R. R. Co. at
that point would of course have to be
built by themselves.
Once given n free course, the powerful
springs that must exist iu the swam) (iu
110 other way can the volume of water be
accounted for) would promptly sweep the
accumulated filth into the &cu; the
ground 011 the sides of the swamp would
harden, and the level could be easily
raised and the course straightened; but
until n free outlet is given all else is
merely temporizing, and without avail.
The widening of the Waiakea canal
might effect the same result but its
width must be nt least doubled iu order
to carry the volume of water. It cannot
be deepened to any advantage as it is
down to sea level already. It would be
an expensive job and would take a long
time to finish.
It may be objected that I am "Hutting
In." Every man with wife and family
iu this town, or even property interests,
should butt iu, and keep butting until
the evil is done away with. For my own
