STKA1UHTKN Till: CANAL.
Health Committee Itccommruil Im
provement of Wnlolnmii Stream.
Chairman Shipuiau of the Committee
on Public Health made n report of the
condition of the Waiolnma stream, which
has been such n source of complaint.
The report is ns follows:
As far as opening of Waiolamn stream
is concerned, your Committee has care
fully considered the matter nud has come
to the conclusion that it would be costly
and an expensive piopositiou to keep it
open, for the reason, that the fall is so
slight and with the canal open, it is im
possible to keep its course open. If the
canal is closed, then it will be possible to !
keep it open. The canal as it stands at
the present time is so narrow, nud if it is
widened and deepened to such an extent
ns to be able to take all the water, it will
have current strong enough to force the
refuse which is liable to accumulate on
the sides of the stream. Your Commit
tee have also discovered that the main
obstacle which is making the water so j
difficult to flow in its natural course is
the various directions in which the water
is flowing through the swamp, nud conse
quently, reduce the necessary force of
water to such an extent us to be unable
to carry away the refuse which accumu
lates along the banks. Cattle are also
being pastuted in lbs swamp, and are
constantly trampling dawn the banks to
the level of the stream, making it very
slushy throughout the whole swamp. If
the pasturing of animals ou the premises
be prohibited and the canal straightened
out. which your Committee so recom
mend, the consequence will be that it
could be easily kept clean.
Your Committee would nlso recom
mend that the Supervisor of South Hilo
be uuthori.ed to act upon tile mutters so
recommended by your Committee.

Complaint of Health Olllrcr Against
Dr. C. L. Stow, health officer of Hilo
ndtlrcsscd a letter of complaint to the
board of Supervisors on Tuesday last in
regard to the manner in which garbage
was handled under the present system.
His letter which was referred to the
Health Committee is as follows:
"John T. Moir,
Chairman Hoard of Supervisors,
Dear Sir: Numerous complaints arc
being made about the arrangements for
the removal of garbage iu the town of
Hilo and I consider it my duty to call
the attention of the Hoard to the matter.
"I have personally noticed boxes of
garbage, placed out for removal, ou the
sidewalks ofWninkea, lying untouched
for three days, stinking and breeding
"A Chinese restaurant keeper, upon
whose veranda I noticed n large aud reek
ing barrel full of refuse, told me yester
day that the cart had not called since. last
Friday and that his garbage was never
removed more than twice and generally
not more than once a week.
"The garbage tin on my own premises
has been left untouched for five days and
numerous complaints of a similar uuture
have reached me.
"Mr. Andrews has been frequently noti
fied of these matters but no improvement
has taken place. For some time past the
shippers' wharf committee has spent con
siderable money iu trying to exterminate
rats. They might as well save their
money for it is notorious that rats will
not look nt poisoned bait while n plenti
ful supply of garbage is easily obtainable.
The system might be made to work per
fectly under proper supervision and if
thiscauHOt be given, 1 would suggest
that some new arrangements were made.
Garbage nud night soil should be re
"I would suggest that your Hoard give
the matter serious consideration for it is
one of vital importance to the health of
(Sgd.) Cs L. STOW.
The Committee has also received a
voluminous communication from An
drews, iu refutation of the charges and
making counter-charges against Dr.
Stow. The Committee, which consists
of Supervisors S. L. Desha, W. II. Ship
man nud J. T. Moir will investigate the
charges aud report nt the next meeting
of the Hoard iu December.
Iu his reply to Dr. Stow's complaint,
Andrews charges u long standing per
soual animosity against him. He claims
that all of the complaints filed by the
Health Officer have been promptly at
tended to, nnd to nvoid any dispute he
has had prepared and maintained iu the
Health Office, a complaint hook, which
contains only one entry by Dr. Stow.
He alleges that Dr. Stow's enmity against
him dates from the time he was slier ill',
when Stow lost the jail practice on com
petitive bids. Andrews' letter iu full ap
