THURSDAY, : FEB. 13, 189(5.
Some almost startling facts wero
submitted to tho Board of Health
yesterday rogarding tho -water
supply. Tho -water is polluted
both by surfaco drainage from
tho public highway aud by de
cayed vegetable matter from its
sources to tho rcsorvoirs. It was
statod by modical inembors of tho
Board that n great deal of sick
ness certainly resulted from tho
impurity of tho wator supplied
to the people fflio bad conditions
now reported to tho Board woro
orposed by tho Bulletin sevordl
years ago, and tho necessity for
clean chaunols from tho sources,
together with a process of purifi
cation at tho reservoirs, was
urgently presented. It was also
pointed out, after porsonal obser
vation, that thero must bo a great
wnsto of water in seopago
and absorption by tho sedgy
margins of tho streamlets that
-tho supply comes from. A
settling basin and somo liltoring
arrangement, no mattor if crude,
aro wanted in connection with tho
reservoir system, and tho reser
voirs ought to bo lined with con
crete liko that of tho O. R. & L.
Co. at Pearl City. Springs at tho
sources ought to bo dug out nnd
walled, and tho streams thoro
from given a clean and clear
courso between stone - lined
banks, with grovel and sand
behind them to iiltor, in somo de
gree, tho rain water coming from
tho outlying jungle and sedge.
Theso idoas for remedying tho
dp!ecls of our surfaco wator sup
ply wero approved long ago by
experts to whom thoy woro sub
mitted. Something ought to bo
done promptly, for wo do not
know the day whon another opi
domic of some kind may arrive,
requiring porhaps tho prohibition
of mountain Avator with the groat
expense of furnishing tho artesian
article. In tho meantime, after
what tho medical gentlemen of tho
Board of Health have told us, it is
tho part of wisdom for the people
to boil all wator that is to bo used
as a bovorago.
THE MONROE DOCTRINE.
A "Washington dispatch as late
as January 21 says tho prediction
was freely made. by members of
tho Houso committoo on foreign
affairs that if the proposed re
affirmation of tho Monroe doctrine
is adopted by tho" Senate and sont
over to tho Houso for action it
will bo allowed to rest quietly in
tho committee files. More than a
majority of both Republican and
Democratic mombors of the com
mittoo woro interviewed without
any of them being found who en
dorsed tho resolutions. Ono
of tho foremost authorities
on diplomatic matters in tho
Houso said ho doomed it very poor
diplomacy to take any stops tend
ing to increase tho tension botwoon
tho United States and Great Bri
tain in what practically amounted
to a crisis. Tho perforvid declam
ations of members of Congress in
behalf of tho doctrine ought not
to mislead anybody oven at this

distance, as thoy aro labored efforts
that aro put in print beforo their
delivory and iutondod only to
make political capital for tho
oratory in their own bailiwicks.
Thoro aro peoplo in Honolulu
who tako all theso forensic fire
works as earnest patriotism. Some
of tho ablost writers in tho Ame
rican press, liowovor, regard tho
Monroo doctrine as good enough
the way it was originally enun
ciated, having whonovor it has
boon proporly applied produced
rosulls tho most satisfactory for
tho United States and her citizens.
In short, tho Monroo doctrine
does not need strotching beyond
its plain intent and meaning.
An important question has boon
raised by tho refusal of Controllor
Bowlor to authorizes tho paymout
of sugar bounties on tho ground
that tho law was unconstitutional.
It is whether an eiecutivo officer
of tho Government call prevent
tho operation of an act of Con
gress if he thinks it is unconsti
tutional. Representative Ray, a
member of tho judiciary commit
too, has introduced a bill that, if
it pass, will settle the question for
tho future. Tho bill makes it un
lawful for any oxecutivo officer of
tho Government to refuse or neglect
to carry out a law of the United
States on tho ground of its un
constitutionality. If he considors
that a law is unconstitutional, ho
shall report his opinion to tho
head of his department, whoso
duty it will then bo to temporarily
suspend tho execution of tho
law, if in his judgment such sus
pension will not embarrass tho
transaction of public business.
Tho quostion raised is to bo sub
mitted to tho Attorney-General,
who, if ho believes tho law uncon
stitutional, shall certify the fact to
tho department interested and im
mediately institute a suit in tho
Court of Claims to havo tho law
doclared void. From tho judg
ment of that court an appeal may
bo taken to tho Supreme Court,
and such appeals aro to have pre
cedence. If, howovor, tho Attor
ney General regards tho law as
constitutional, ho shall so certify
to tho dopartmont presenting tho
question, and thereupon all oxe
cutivo officers of tho Government
aro to proceed to execute and on
forco it. It is provided that no
oxecutivo oflicor shall question
tho c6nstitutionality of any law
appropriating money to pay
tho current exponses of tho
Government or to provide for tho
common defense. In tho mattor
of tho sugar bounty tho action of
Controller Bowlor forced tho
sugar raisers to instituto suits for
themselves, and thoy havo won
their cases before tho United
States Circuit Court for tho East
ern District of Louisiana. Ap
peals have been taken to tho
Supremo Court which will bo
prosecuted with as little delay as
possible. Beforo tho final de
cision is given, however, a long
period will havo elapsed in
which the sugar men had been
kopt in a stato of uncertainty ex
tremely injurious to their inter
ests. Should it prove that thoy
aro lawfully entitled to tho boun
ties, a claim for damages against
tho Government is only what
should bo expected.
Supervisor Kiug wants San
Francisco to licenso gambling.
President Krueger of the
Transvaal republic is one of
the greatest diplomats in the
world. He is a living proof of
the fact that in rare instances
the diplomatist is born, not
made. He is ignorant of let
ters and the elegancies of life
and his range of reading is
very limited, out the old Boer
possesses qualities that enable
him to cope with the cleverest
of the trained diplomatists of
1 he attention of the whole
civilized world is now riveted
on this man and his doings.
His every act is reported in the
London and New York papers
bv able special correspondents
j detailedfor the purpose.
nere in mis nuie republic or
fly-specks on the great Pacific
we are so far from the arena
in which the present great
game of diplomacy is being
carried on, and our means of
getting news from the outside
world are so few and far be
tween, that we have more time
to attend to our own and our
neighbor's business especially
the latter, if all reports are true.
We want to call the atten
tion of readers of the Bul
letin this week to something
which not only interests them
but their neighbors also. It is
to an article called CARBO
LINEUM AVENARIUS. We
believe those are Latin words
but we don't know and we
don't care. We know the ar
ticle is good for the purpose it
is used, and that is all that
Carbolineum Avenarius is
used for preserving wood
against all insects, rot, fungus,
etc., and it does the business
in great shape. It is applied
the same as paint and is in a
convenient and handy form
for use. We had a lot of this
valuable compound some time
ago but the demand was so
great when people got to know
about it that our stock was
soon exhausted. We have
plenty on hand now, however,
to supplv everybody.
In buflding houses this pre
paration is invaluable for coat
ing plates, mudsills and any
lumber which is liable to come
in contact with moisture. It
is excellent to preserve the ends
of fence posts and telephone
poles. Railway ties coated
with it last twice as long as
Nearly everyone is troubled
with borers about their prem

This is not a new preparation.
It has been in extensive use in
Europe and the United States
for twelve years past, where it
is gaining favor as its merits
become better known.
