Pledged to neither Sect nor Party,
But Established for the Benefit of All.
THURSDAY, SEPT. 7, 1803.
In giving what purports to bo a
full roport of tho Board of Health
mooting, tho Advertiser prints threo
letters from Dr. Trousseau without
any of tho Board's letters to him.
This is soomingly a very jug-handled
method of doaliug with oflieial cor
respondouco. On his visit to Canada, Mr. James
Huddart, of tho Canadiau-Australian
Steamship Lino, mado mutually
satisfactory arrangomouts with the
Canadian Pacific Railway Co. for a
scheme of round-the-world tours by
way of thoso laud and water routes.
Nothing possible will bo left undouo

Win. J. Abbott, managing editor
of the Chicago Times, while on a
visit to Washington, is reported to
havo said "tho World's Fair is mak
ing Chicago poor," but tho city
would "rise superior to this infliction
as it did to tho fire." Probably the
Chicago exhibition has reached the
climax, of cost and display for such ,
nntnrnrisns. so that, tho interest of ,
tho world will not be obtainable for
any attempt to rival it in a long
period to come.
Lately a local paper noted the
significance of a Washington des
patch to tho San Francisco Ex
aminer, rather favoring the prospect
of Hawaiian annexation, as coming
from Mr. T. T. Williams who had
been known in Honolulu as an anti
auuexationist, while hero investigat
ing the annexation sentimeut last
year. It happens that Mr. Williams
has not been tho correspondent oi
the Examiner at Washington foi
some time, having been a month age
reported to bo enjoying himself at
Golden Gate Villa.
Truly this is not a timo whon the
position of Port Physician is an oil
viable one, with cholera to bo watch
cd against from two opposite shore.1
of the Pacific, and a frightful opi
demic of measles raging iu the South
Pacific, whence wo havo two steam
ers monthly. The latest news showt
the disease to be very prevalent in
Australia, while it has under pros
tration nearly the whole population
of Tonga. Two hundred deaths had
occurred, iucluding thoso of several
chiefs, on thoso islands at latest mail
accounts received in Auckland. No
Board of Health for many years has
had more need than the present onu
of the most expert vigilance to guard
against disease from the outer
ABE SEWEBS DESIRABLE.
At intervals wo hoar of tho need
of a system of sewerage for this city.
Probably two-thirds of our citizens
who havo tho good of tho city at
heart would declare for such a sys
tem if tho question wero put to vote;
but it is hardly likely that one per
son in a hundred has given the mat
ter such consideration as to war
rant an expression of opinion. Wo
have heard it stated that differences
of opinion existed among persons
fitted to decide such questions, as to
tho value of systems of sowerago for
cities in the tropics. Taking up the
Forum for August a fow days siuce
we read an article on ''Municipal
Sanitation in Washington and Balti
more," which is woll worth reading.
Both cities havo a comparatively
largo proportion of colored popula
tion, and in both, as hore, tho death
rate of colored people is largely in
excess of that of tho whito popula
tion. Tho climatic conditions iu tho
cities named aro nearly tho same for
each, but Washington is a sewered
city and Baltimore is not.
Now for tho figures, which wo con
fess wero a surpriso to us. For a
poriod of six years ending with Juno
1, 18i)0, the average annual death
rate iu tho District of Columbia was
22.-11 a thousaud of moan popula
tion, whilo that of Baltimore was
22.89 for tho same poriod; but this
oxcoss of mortality was entirely duo
to the higher deathratos of tho co'
ored population, which wore .'18.23
for tho District and 32.00 for Balti
more, while those of tho white wero
18.55 for tho District, and 20.11 for
Baltimore It will be soon that tho '
excess of deaths of colorod popula- ,
tioo in tho cities named bears about
the Bamo proportion thut has been
noticeable in tho statistics publish -
cd from time to timo by our health
Tho article goes on to say: "Tho
fact that tho diiToront mothods of
soworage-disposal in Baltimore and
Washington nro not accompanied
by marked differences in tho death
rates is an important one which de
serves careful attontiou by sanitari
ans and municipal ongiuoors, being
contrary to tho prevailing opinions
on this point, It seoins to indicate
that so long as tho water-supply is
pure and abundant tho methods of
sewage-disposal do not havo much
itilluouco on tho health of the com
munity, and that while tho disposal
of houso-slops in open gutters and
tho storage of sowago in cesspools
I produce nuisances of various kinds,
it is doubtful whother they aro nui
sances directly aud positively in
jurious to health, aud, thorefore,
their abatement should bo urged on
Hawfiiians As " Suckors.'
The Uawaiiaus are said to bo a
simplo and easj'-goiug race. It is
doubtless on account of this reputa
tion that certain whito mou havo
been in tho habit of treating them

as a lot of "suckers," to uso a vulgar

Minister Damon, on reading tho
foregoing stateuiotit, said that over
since ho had been Minister of Fi
nance, it had been a puzzle to him
to know how the Postal Savings
Bank could owo tho Treasury a
balance. With tho Auditor-General
ho had gono over the books and
como to tho conclusion that tho mis
take must havo been connected with
transactions under Sec. 3 of tho Ap
propriation Bill. It should be, he
thought, that tho Treasury owed the
Postal Savings Bank. At a later
period ho would bring in the figures
to show that this amount was charged
to tho Postal Savings Bank, in the
report of tho then Minister of Fi
nance to tho last Legislature, when
it should havo boon charged to Sec.
,, , ,. . , . ,- :i.i
that tho Postal Savings Bank should
i owe tho Treasury.

it would lie impossible to presorvo

Tho roport was laid on tho table

Hatch explained that

lieutenants wero allowed by tho law
to each company, and this company
had two Nontenants on activo ser
vice and two iu tho volunteer brunch.
Mr. Emineluth did not soo tho
necessity of thii action. Somo timo
ago Co. A, auxiliary, was. brought
into activo service at tho Judiciary
building. The Volunteer branch of
Co. A is contemplated to bo merged
with tho auxiliary in case of boing

Minister Damon introduced a bill
entitled, "An Act to amend Chap. 61
of the Session Laws of 1S'.)2, relating
to internal taxes," as follows:
"Sec. 1. That Sec. 20 of Chap. Gl
of tho Sosiou Laws of 18!)2, bo and
the same is hereby amended so as to
read as follows:
"20. Each assessor shall recoivo
such compensation as tho Legisla

The putting upon the mar
ket of an article superior to
anything in the same line ever
sold here means something to
the busy business man. When
we went into the ready mixed
paint line we didjlso with the
idea of giving the public a bet
ter article than it has been
used to seeing. What is the
result? Hendry's Ready
Mixed Paints are leading all
others; people who have been
averse to using prepared
paints are now ready and wil
ling to save fifty percent of the
cost of painting their houses
by using this paint. Then you
ask "How can thev save so
much?" We'll tell you! Not
the least important item in the
profession of the painter is his
knowledge of mixing colors,
and there's a good many of
them in Honolulu who can put
the paint on as even as the
boards but who do not know
the first principle of mixing.
Very well then. A ten year
old boy can paint if the colors
are right. You can save the
wages of a high priced man
and employ one who never
tried to learn the knack of
mixing and you save twenty
five percent in wages. The
"Hendry Ready Mixed" will
cover twenty-five percent more
space than ordinary paints or
the average ready mixed arti
cle there's your other twenty
five percent. If you do your
own work you will save twenty
five percent more. Try it.
The assurances we have re
ceived from the Water Works
department leads us to believe
that there will be sufficient
water from the Makiki wells
for people to take baths every
day. With a liberal supply of
water comes a demand for
bath tubs better than tin.
We have in stock several of
the sort largely advertised in
the Century and other maga
zines. They are enamelled
on iron and are everlasting.
All the new homes have them
and there's no reason why
they should not be put in old
People who occasionally en
joy Hamburg steaks feel the
necessity for a really good
machine for chopping the
meat. We think, from reports
we have had from parties who
are using them that ours is
decidedly the best in the mar
ket. We have them in ena-
mel or galvanized iron no
danger of rusting.

Three plantations have

dozen makes of the latter were

the Aermotor carried off the

for a tenth of the cost of
steam. The three plantation
managers referred to above
j have simply fallen into line
with others as their necessities
I required, there will be others
to follow suit and we believe
that within another year every
