BBIr,- SALE Of" FRESH FISH.
Much cmi bo snid on both sides
of tho question rotating to tho sale
of fresh fiBh, which has divided
the opinion of members of tho
Hoard of Health. Although tho
regulation confining tho salo to
the public market has beon of
long standing, it is a fact
nevertheless that thoro has
been peddling of fish from
door to door for some time past.
Ono protection that peoplo havo
against unsound food supplies of
any kind is that they need not bo
imposed upon moro than onco by
tho snme dealer without having
themselves to blamo. What tho
opponents of relaxing tho privilege
seem to bo afraid of, however, is
that tho salo of unwholesomo fish
here and thoro may causo con
siderable sickness in tho aggre
gate from its unwitting consump
tion. On tho other hand, thero is
no doubt that the necessity of go
ing to tho market for a
me-s of frosli fish is an in
convenience to many peoplo.
Thero aro some who havo "nobody
to send for it," and still moro who
live at such a distance from the
market that it is inconvenient, as
well as expensive, for thorn to send
thero for two or four bits' worth of
fish. Perhaps some modification
of tho rulo might be devised, in
which tho hawking of fish, or its
salo at stores in tho outskirts,
could bo allowed under license,
subject at all times to inspection
with pain of forfeiture of
license for selling stalo fish.
Limitations might bo placed on all
hawkers and storekeepers taking
out licenses, so that they would
have to account for all fish re
maining unsold at a certain hour,
and be prevented from offering
thorn later or having them decay
on their premises to mako a nui
sance. The best plan of all would
be one that gave holders of fish
stalls at the market if they would
accept it the solo privilege
of supplying peddlers and store
keepers. These could keep a re
cord of all such transactions and
be required to insist upon tho re
turn to them by, say, five o'clock
in tho afternoon, of all fish for
which no money returns wore
received. The main dealers could
then salt down the returned fish
as they are permitted to do that
remaining in their .stalls at tho
close of the day. In the case of
stores it should bo required that
the fiih bo kept in a refrigorator
where no other food supplies aro
kept, and in tho case of peddlers
that they should be equipped with
an ice box on wheels to protect
tho fish from both the warm air
and the sun while going their
rounds. These aro only sug
gestions which may lead to some
more acceptable expedient. It
doe3 look like invidious discrim
ination against tho sale of fresh
fish to confine it to ono place,
whild all other food supplies aro
allowed to be 6old by peddlers
and others, and that with little or
no oih'cial supervision for tho
protection of the public, every
where throughout tho town.

still in vogue. Tho mattor of re

A Japanese who had just beon

for tho crime of stealing by tho

Tuesday night. He took hiB

going in next morning found tho

PRESIDENT OF VENEZU
ELA AND OTHER
President Crespo of Venez
uela is a tall, heavy man, with
a countenance revealing force
and determination. He is very
abstemious in his habit and
generally goes to bed at 8
o'clock in the evening. He is
in the habit of summoning his
Alinisters to him at sunrise.
He is fond of cattle-ranching,
and owns a large number of
acres not far from the Venezu
elan capital. He is a fine eques
trian and has an unlimited
amount of backbone. He also
knows a good thing when a
friend puts him on to it. If he
lived in Honolulu he would be
one of the first to call at the
store of the Hawaiian Hard
ware Company and examine
some of that fine cutlery just
received by the last Australia.
Beyond question we have now
displayed on our shelves and
in our windows and showcases
the finest lot of cutlery ever
brought to these Islands.
One of those fine carving
sets with ivory or buckhorn
handles in handsome plush
cases would be just the thing
to take the fancy of President
Crespo or his great and good
friend Grover Cleveland. We
have also smaller sets of carv
ers, designed for game and
