TUESDAY, SEPT. - - 10, 1895.
Many people are asking if tho
jurisdiction of tho Board of
ileal tli extends to tho islands of
tho group othor than Oahu. Moat
certainly it does. Wo hnvo not
before us tho laws of tho Provi
sional Govornmont and of tho
Republic to quoto from, but know
thero is nothing in them that
radically changes tho conatituton
of the Board undor the monarchy.
Tho following fow oxtraots from
the laws "of tho public health"
(Compiled Laws pago 70-79)
show clearly onough tho jurisdic
tion of tho Board ovor tho wholo
Thero shall bo a Board of
Health for tho Kingdom consist
ing of fivo mombors, at least threo
whom shall bo mombors of the
Said Board of Hoalth may ap
point suitable agonts in such lo
calities as it may deoin necessary,
to carry into effect all regulations
for tho publio health; cto.
The Board of Health shall mako
such regulations rospeoting nui
sancers, sources of filth, and causes
of sickness, within tho respective
districts of tho Kingdom, as it
shall judgo necessary for the pub
lic health and safety.
The Board of Health, and its
a gouts, may establish quarantino
grounds in tho several districts, as
thoy may judgo best.
The foregoing paragraphs aro
not takon in succession, but from
dinbront parts of tho codo. They
aro enough to show that tho Board
of H'oalth basBHprome jurisdiction
in matters of public hoalth ovor the
whole group. In accordance with
this jurisdiction, whon cholera
appeared at this port, tho Board
among its first acts adopted the
most stringent precautions against
allowing tho disease to extond to
tho other islands and the other
districts of this island. Regula
tions woro made undor which
pussongors, mails, and froight of
certain kinds might bo landed at
othor porta in tho group without
dangor of convoying infection.
The precautions takon woro
infinitely moro strict than thoso
takon to provont tho spread
of tho diseaso in Honolulu.
Steamers wbose mastors were
equippod with" the authority of
the Board of Health to carry on
such limited traffio wore met on
different islands with insurrection
ary resistance. Their ship's com
panies wero threatened with arm
ed violence if they attempted to
avail thomselvas of their full legal
privileges. These demonstrations
wero, it appoars, participated in
by the very servants of tho Board
of Hoalth and othor Government
officials. At all events, thoy
must bo regarded as jtiRt as much
robellion against the constituted
authorities as was tho resistance
of Koolau tho loper at Kalalau to
arrest, or as would bo a rising of
natives in Honolulu today against
tho regulations of tho Board of
Health for their own protection.
There is anothor phaso of this
question that should be consider
ed by our friends in tho country.
Supposo tho boot was on the other
leg? That an immigrant ship,
buoIi as tho Pactolus a fow years
ago at Mahukona, had brought
ohclora to another port, who
who would havo takon Bupremo
charge of tho omorgoncy ? Most
assurodly the Board of Health.
It would havo sont an adoquato
forco of physicians, fumigators
imd quanntino officers to thefcpot
to tiko tho rajat stronuous mea
sures for the suppression of the
plaguo. Our country cousins
would not have motthodoputation
on tho beach with guns to provont
thoir landing with the needed
succor. Thoso pooplo ought to
havo just as much confidence in
tho Board, in tho present omor
gonoy, thit it would do noth
ing to o dinger but ovorything
to protect thoir lives. Already
thoy re starod in tho faco with
famine for man and beast by thoir
roboll ous action, f nd havo to so
licit tho good oflioos of tho Board
of Hoalth to supply their neods.
Again, if officials of tho differ
ent ports of tho country aro com
pelled by intornatii nal law to
grant pratiquo to ships from
foroign infoctod ports, surely tho
principle applies with moro forco
to coasting vefsslfl between this
port atid others in tho samo coun
try. The very least tho authori
ties and citizons of tho ontports
should have done was to establish
quarantino stations, and allow
passongors to land thereat and
remain for a givon period from
the hour of departure froti Hono
lulu, When tho present trouble
is over hero, all those concernod
in tho seditious actions iu ques
tion ought to bo sevarely discip
lined by tho Govornmont. If it is
a Government of all Hawaii, let
it maintain its authority ovor the
Two of the cholera cases report
ed yestorday afternoon wero dis
covered by civilian sanitary in
spectors. Had it not been for
thoir making tho rounds, there is
no saying how long tho infectod
houso would havo beon spreading
Several people bavo recalled
tho fact that tar was burned ut
street corners in tho smallpox
opidemio of 1881. It is well worth
adopting apw, especially when
the wind falls, as it would fum
igate tho town and ruiso a draught.
Certain aoids are saiditobo good
at this timo to tako in bovorages.
Thoro is a variety of them at the
drugstores, and the druggists will
advise customers proporly about
thorn. It is likely, howovor, that
nothing moro wholesome and
effective as a preventive to
gastric troubles can bo usod than
tho juioo of half a lomon or a lime
squeezed into a glass of oool boil
ed water. This takon before
meals or at bedtimo has boon
found by many oxcollent for giv
ing tone to the system.
Inspectors whoso apanas aro
amongst the dwollings of tho poor
ought to be supplied with somo of
the soveral approved cholera re
medies. By taking a remedy
when any bad symptoms appear,
and buving a dootor called if
relief is obtainod within a givon
timo, many casos may bo prevent
ed and livos saved. This was
discuBSod in n group of inspectors
last night and generally approved.
Only pooplo should bo cautioned
against using medioino except in
case of necessity, as that would bo
likoly to mako it less potont for its
purpose whon tho need came.
Thero aro drugs in somo of tho
medicines, too, whioh produce
such agrooablo after effects as to
tempt thoir users to employ them
as a regular anodyno against any
pain, witb very pernicious results
to tho constitutions of tho persons.
Somo ponplc bearing relief tick
ots from inspectors woro elbowed

It was suggested at head
quarters of the inspectors last
night that a relief station should
bo opened in ovary district, and
that all ordors for food should be
signod by a. head inspector and
thou bo implicitly honored. An
othor idoa is to have dolivory wa
gons go mund with unprop.irod

It is said tho natives like their
moat well coolcod anyway, and it
ib the right thing at this timo to

and each should bo employed as
Tho little of the lawyer that is
in the makeup of tho editor pro
tcm of the Advortisor is clearly
shown in the leading nrticlo on
"Tho Tragedy of Morant Bay" in
this day's paper. Any fair-minded
person who will tako tbo pains
to read tho notice of the book of
tho Honorary Secretary of tho
Baptist Missionary Society will
find in it much that bears upon
affairs in Hawaii noi. Tho editor

to point a moral: "Tho whites,
as might have boon expected, got

family compact) "as a race. Rep
resentative institutions wore in
fact a mockery. In 1804 tho
number of persons qualified to
vote for tho forty-povon members
of tho Houso of Assembly was
only 1,903 and tho number of
actual voters only 1,457,
out of a population, of

bulk of tho population from the

least without doing: what was
neoessary ,to avert disaster. To
tho black peasantry tho legisla

An Ancient Cardial,
There was an interesting oelo
bration at Feoamp a few Sundays
ago, whon tho fine new building
of tho Benedictine distillery was
dedicated. Half a thousand dis
tinguished guests wero present,
and tho coromonios began with
tbo eolobration of high mass in
tho cathedral. An interesting
foaturo of tho building is an onor
mous banquet hall, around the
walls of which aro arranged
tho statuos of sixteen of tho
principal abbots of the mon
astery. Tho liquor has boon dis
tilled stnoo 1510, whon ,a monk
invonted it. It was used by tho
Benodictinos of thoso days as a
medioino and stimulant, and its
popularity dates from tho time
Francis I showed hi8 appreciation
of tho cordial by croating tho
abbot a Cardinal. It ia pleasant
to know that tho bottles aro cork
ed, laboled and sealed by the
young girls of tho orphanage of
tho Sisters of St. Viucont do
Paul. Still it is one of tho vory
host liquors not to drink that

ON the :-
This warm, sultry weather
aects bicycle riders as well as
common people, and the clerk
of the weather comes in for
more than the usual amount of
grumbling generally allotted to
himt And; just here is where
the riders of the "Tribune"
have the advantage over those
on other wheels. Fifteen per
cent less exertion is required on
a "Tribune" than any other
wheel in existence, and 1 $ per
cent hard labor is quite a de
sideratum with those who have
much hard riding or many hills
to climb in this kind of weather.
The saving in power which
is afforded by the Cycloidal
Sprocket attached to all Tribune
wheels has already commended
itself to Honolulu cyclists, and
many of them have or will
adopt this labor-saving inven
tion. We have sold every Gate
City Stone, filter we had in
stock, nearly fifty of them of
all sizes, during'the last week
but that does not prevent us
from taking, orders for them to
be delivered on arrival.
Everybody is drinking arte
sian water now and is glad to
get it. There is plenty of it,
enough for all and an abun
dance for irrigation. Over two
million gallons are being pump
ed directly into the mains every
24 hours and c good pressure
is always maintained. We de
sire to call your attention to
the Ball Nozzle Sprinkler which
we have lately introduced.
A small round ball is enclosed
inside the nozzle of this
sprinkler and the greater the
pressure on the mains the
faster the ball revolves and the
finer the spray produced. Try
one and if not satisfactory it
can be returned. We have
them in japan at $.$0 and in;
nickel at 2.00.
The Australia brings us ai
large shipment of refrigerators,,
of which we can specially re
commend the "Alaska." This
was exhibited at the last Me
chanic's Fair in San Francisco
and by actual contest was
declared the best exhibited.
We have it jin all styles and
prices and sTOU be pleased to
show you one at the store. By
using these refrigerators it is
only necessary to buy ice once
a week, they are so economical.
