Having exhausted tho cholera as
a fit subject, and having got do
oidodly tho worst of it in an en
counter with tho Sanitary Com
mittee, the ruinor-mongors havo
today selected tho Ladios' Reliof
Society as a fresh subject of thoir
During part of yesterday and
all this morning various rumors
concerning tho mannor in which
tho Ladies' Relief Society are dis
bursing tho monoy placed in their
chargo for the relief of the desti
tute Hawaiians havo bcon in cir
culation. Naturally theso rumors
camo l.o tho oars of tho ladios
themselves, and this morning
they held a quiet littlo meeting
among Miomselvos. Some woro in
favor of giving up and having
nothing more to do with relief
matters, but others and bolder
onos were in fuvor of tracing
these rumors to thoir source and
tracing the authorship if possible.
This counsel was adopted and
Bpeoial committees of the ladies
started out on tho warpath this
morning, and a Bulletin ropro
sontativo has boon given tho re
One of tho rumors was that the
ladios had shown groat partiality
in tho distribution of roliof in the
portion of tho town ovor whioh
Brothor Frank is tho sauitary in
spector, and wero dishonoring
tickets given out by him and also
ignoring cases of deserving peo
ple who wero in want. This ru
mor was of course Boon iuoroasod
to include tho wholo city. Tho
ladios disposed of it finally
this morning in short order by
calling for Brothor Frank to pro
duco bis nainos. Ho gave a list
of nineteon families in which
complaints had boon inn do to him
where tho ladios had refused ap
plications for roliof. Boforence
to tho data of tho sooioty showed
that evory one of tho heads of
theso familios woro employ
ed on the quarantined vos
sols of tho steamship companies,
that they were in receipt of
good wages and thoir familios
wero not fit subjects for ohiiritv.
Tho Indies interviewed Mr. Ena
of the Inter-Island Company, who
said that they wero porfootly
right in their action, and thtt if
any of tho familios of tho men
woro in want they could como to
him and draw on tho salary
duo to the husband or father at
any time. Incidentally Mr. Ena
gave the committeo who called
on him assurance of his sympathy
aud stated that tho roason it did
not take mbro substantial shapo
wus beouuse ho was paying full
wages to 59 nativo sailors und
stovedores whilo they woro earning
absolutely nothing. Mr. Wight
of the Wilder Company was ulso
intorviowod and ab?urod the la
dies that the fumilios of no ono in
his employ would bo allowed to
suffer. Thoy could draw money
at any timo.
Tho next rumor run to earth
was ono published in a contempo
rary to tho offeot that nativo
workmon of tho Honolulu Iron
Works woro being so well fod by
tho Bolief Society that they quit
work in consequenco. This was
disposed of in short ordor by n
oall on Messrs. Konnody and
Hodemaun, both of whom autho
rize tho lodies to stato that not a
single ono of their mon has quit
sinco tho cholora broko out, and
that only a vory fow havo laid oft"
for a day or loss on account of
sioknoss. Tho mon aro recoiviug
throe dollars a day and aro not
foolish enough to throw up a job
of that kind for the froo meals
furnished by the Bolief Socioty if
thoy could get them. So much
for that rumor.
Another beautiful story in cir
culation this morning is to the
effeot that a numbor of nativo
clerks earning good wages, who
formerly took thoir lunch at
Nolte's and other restaurants,
had boon fod at tho headquarters
of the sooioty since its operations
commenced. This the ladios
deny most positively, and several
of thoso whoso namos woro men
tioned in this connection Iihvj
callad on tho ladios and aisured
thorn they will do a littlo doteotivo
work on thoir own account in tho
effort to discovor tho authorship
of tho rumnr,whioh is said to havo
omanated from a certain yonng
Rov. Dr. Hydo was one of thoso
who had a griovanao against tho
committoe, because it rojectod
ono of tho oases ho reported us
deserving, but the worthy doctor
is satisfied to the contrary. The
husband of tho family ho roported
iuuuiilisu sploudid polisher of
gonrds, cocoanuts, etc., and has
bad all tho work ho can possibly
attend to. Investigation by the
ladies sbowed that two firms in
tho city take all tho goods ho can
turn out, but that ho spends the
monoy ho earns in drink and
opium and noglects his family.
In this oase tho ladios take the
stand that a man who can work
and won't work should bo made
to work, if necessary by
tlio aid of tho law, and
not loavo his family a burden on
the community, and in this thoy
will bo supported by tho com
munity. Many of thoso who apply for
roliof stato thoy aro willing to
work at anything, aud the ladios
found work for two of those today
at chopping wood at 50 cents per
day and board. The ladies havo
opened an employment office
this morning and keep a list of
thoso desiring work and the class
of work which they can do Tho
oommittoo will ouduavor to find
work for all who ask it.
Many of tho oases of want ro
ported by sub-inspectors nro found
upon investigation to bo undeserv
ing. At first ull those woro givon
aid indiscriminately, but the com
mittoe, sinco it has got matters
down to a business shapo, relics
now on its own investigations and
it claims to have bettor sources
of getting at tho necessary fncls
than tho inspectors and subordin
ates of tho Sanitary Committee.
Other minors of a similar na
turo to the ubovo aro boing run
to oarth this aftornoon by the
ladies, who propose to make
things interesting for tho authors
if thoy can be found out.
The ladies desire thut all cases
whoro undosorved charity in be
ing received bo immodiatoly re
ported to them, and assure tho
public thoy will bo at onco in
vestigated and tho proper notion
taken. Thoy also ask that tho
oommunity disbolievo any rumors
regarding unfairness or discrim
ination in the distribution of a
public oharity of whioh they are
tho disbursing agents.
The people who aro in receipt
of roliof now aro mostly those
who havo boon thrown out of
employment by tho embargo on
fishing and others who picked
up a living by working
along the wharves. Theso num-
