Wont into quarantine; all had
to tako swo.vt box. It was amus
ing to hoar tho boys wliilo in tho
box, nothing but tho ho.id out
side. One would siy, "How
much longor, boas?" Anothor,
"Don't yon think it is timo?" An
othor, "Aro you looking at your
watch?'' Another, "No fooling
now." Another, "How strong it
smells1" and another, "Wo are
in for it anyhow; whi.t's tho uso
Dr. Day ordorod tho rooms to
bo fumigated. It was lively and
interesting about the contents of
our valises. "S.iy, Doctor, how
is it on soap? Will it melt? 1
liavo tobacco in my valiso, guess
I'd bo' tor take it out." Jimmy
Kelly says: "Boys, if you got
tho diarrhoen, come to me. I
have the btutf that will knock it."
Smith says: "I havo Jayno's
Carminative Balsam; ono spoon
ful every 15 minutes will knock
tho worst cuse of cholera silly in
throo doses." Clarence Crabbo
says: "I havo all tho medioine
in my office, and if any of you
mon have any loosoness in
tho bowels come to me right awuy.''
One man says: "1 gave a inuu
ono of my pills just now; ho is
gond for 48 hours." Crabbosays:
"Whoro is tho man, I don't want
anything of this kind going on
without notifying mo. I havo all
tho necessary medicines, and I
order all of you tho first symptoms
to como direct to mo." "Oh,"
Howett says, "I gave tho man tho
pill; 1 guess he won't bothoryou."
Tho next thing was disinfecting
the dock by sprinkling tar watr
botwoon tho cracks. It smelt
loud, you bet. Jimmy Kelly
s.iys: "Say, boys, it makes roo
sick. How long is it Jo luRt?"
Crubbe says: "Wo havo to give
you a dose of it every dny.v
Genial Hurry Wobb tries to mako
everything O. K. to add to our
comforts, such as building a shod,
for our dining room and fixing up
our shower for our baths, etc.
Mr. Crabbo dorserves great
praise in his offorts to make us
comfortable, and he has selected
a No. 1 cook and assistant, who
attend to our wants for tho inner
man. And I tell you wo are
well fed and aro contented, in that
lino. As to our sleeping apart
ments, wo had our beds all re.idy,
when along comes Geo. Wash.
Smith, and wanted to know whoro
he was to put up. Tho boys :n
tho pilots' office Ray: "We are
all put up O. K., Washington, yon
will havo to switch for yoursolf."
Smith says: "How is this? I
was told to go with Crabbo."
Claronco Crabbe says: "Como
here, you can Beo for yoursolf; I
havo nn room for any ono.'' Kel
ly says, "1 want to know about
this sleeping business.'' It was
finally settled to romovo tho desk
and Mr. Bobertson to. k tho ver
anda, making things all right.
Webb snys: ''Smith, come in
hero; I guess we can get along all
right." So the first night'somo
ouo woko up in tho night, and
snys: "Siiy, boys, how long is
this stink to stay with us ? I
havo got a headache. I can't stand
this long." Webb and Kolly
says: "Don't let a littlo thing liko
that worry you." Howott took
his iron bod outside by tho
side of Crabbo's oflico and Sat-
uiday, 14th inst., took ono of tho
Mail Co.'s offices for himself,
and says: "Now, this is my room
and ofiico for George Washington
und mo, to represent the fteam
Bhip companios, and don't you
forgot it." So now at this timo
everything is all O.K., wo havo
good grub, and good sleeping
apartrnonts, and have got used to
tho stink of disinfectants. Wo
have also in quarantino 30 native
boys to woik tho freight. They
aro all a jolly sot of boyo and
tike to tho quarantino as a duck
takes to water. They do the dis
infecting and keep everything
neat and clo.m, nnd they uro tho
jolliost lot of mon I have soon
togothor in sotno timo. They
amuse themselves by playing cards
and singing We havo u free

Tho guard boat3 and others are
attracted to tho middle of the
stream to tako in two gratuitous
concerts, one from our natives aud
the other from the littlo German
band. Truly Shakospearo's say

position ho filled admirably, and
tho others did what thoy c uld to

There was an informal mooting
of the Ways and Moans Committee
at the headquarters of tho Sani
tary Committoo last night at
which AttornoyGemr.il Smilh
and others wero presont. Tho
principal muttors under d scus
Biou were tho Nuuanu stroam,
sewcragound garbage dumps.
On tho question of what was to
bo done with the Nuuanu stream
it wus unanimously doc dod to
recommend to tne government
the imn eel in to construction of
douhlo retain'ng walls on each
side, the inner ones to confino tho
stroam within a narrow courso
and tho outer ones to pro
vide for fnhets in tho rainy
seasons, tho intervening spaco t
bo banked up and laid out in
grasd. Tnisis to bo extended to a
point opposito St. Louis Colleg
and perhaps much higher up. It
is claimed that tho stro.tm would
only overflow the grass dnr ug
threo months in tho year and ex
tend to tho outer walls ouly two
or throo times in that poriod.
With regard to n system of
sewerage the committee fuvorod
tho construction of four or five
largo cesspools in control portions
of the city, from which sewers are
to radiate whorovcr tho fall of the
ground will permit. Tho contrul
oosspools aro to bo omptied a'
night by means of tho
odorless excavators and con
voyed to a large depositing tank
or oessnool whero tho sowage is to
bo treated with sulphuric aoid.
After a sufiioiont timo has clanso I
for tho sewage to settle, tho snr
faoo water will bo run off and tho
resulting compound, which will
consist largoly of phosphatos. will
bo sold for fertilizer. It is claim
ed thut tho rovonuo from this
sourco will oventually pay tho ex
penses of tho wholo systom.
The Kakaako garbago dumps,
to Which Ministers Smith and
Hatch paid a visit yesterday, also
camo undor discussion, and it wus

Tho houso-to - Iioubo inspection
developed the f ict that in somo

It was dooided to put an ond to
this practice, if possiblo by suit
ablo regulations of the Board of
Health to take effect at once, or
otherwise by menus of an Act of
the coming legislature to regulate
tho allowance of so many cubic
foot of uir to each person, similar
to the ordinances now in forco in
