DANCER OF PESTILENCE.
TIIi: OLD PISIHTIAItKET LOT A
Tlio Locality of King Street mill ttio
Niiumiu Stream n Pontllciico
Ou Sunday last a Bulletin
representative concluded to tnko n
look at tho so-called improvements
on tho waterfront and this is what
ho saw. llis investigations com
menced at the Bite of tho old fisLi
markot and continued along tho
waterfront to tho bridge near St.
Tho present condition of tho
old iishmnrkpt lot is a disgraco to
ovorvono who has had the hand
ling of it siuco tho building wi-'io
doatroyed in tho cholera UmeB.
It has simply been con
verted into a garbage repository
for waterfront refuse, and if
possible has beccmo a worse
menaco to tho public health of
the city than if tho buildings had
still been used for tho sulo of fish.
"Who is ro-pousiblo for this stato
of affairs and why is not tho lot
either fenced in or graded up to
tho lovol of tho street instead of
being converted into a garbage
Continuing along tho watorf rout
tho roportor noticed that tho new
roadway from tho old market to
the King street bridge has boon
partly tilled in with debris from
tho dredgor, which is all very well
as far as it goes, but a loaded
wagon cannot pass over it and
thoro are no signs of travel over
it except a well-worn footpath. A
very little moro work put on this
stretch of road would have com
pleted it so that it could bo used
for tho purposes intended. Tho
building of this road has
enclosed tho land lying between
it and King street and thereby
formed n regular bog of mud.
Tho tide rises and falls insido this
bog bb it used to beforo tho om
baukmont was thrown up, but tho
water no longer runs oil' with tho
falling of tlio tide. Some of it
seops back again through mud but
much of it is retained on tho sur
face As this portion of tho wator
frout referied to is covorod with
houses the condition of tho in
mates should bo a matter of con
cern to tho sanitary authorities,
but thoy seem to have forgotten
ull about such mattors now that
tho opidomio of cholera is ovor.
Many of tho tonauts have moved
out but thoro are plonty left, and
during tho short Btay of tho writor
on the spot ho saw enough to con
vince him that all tho slops, kit
chen ret'uso and worse, was being
thrown out of doors just
as it used to bo beforo tho cholera.
With only threo or four warm
days so far this season, tho stench
arising troin this place was some
thing fearful ami it can plain ly
bo smolled a long way oft. The
wholo inclosuro made by King
Btreet, Maunakea and tho wator
front is nothing but a pestileuco
breeding hole and a constant
menace to tho health of those
living in tho vicinity and in fuct
to tho wholo city. Typhoid tovor
lurks in every nook and crunny
of it and malarial diseases would
rovol at ill in its rooking recep
tacles of slimo and tilth. Cholera
has already mado its homo thoro
and will ilo ho again unless some
thing is uono. Let tho Board of
Health pay a visit to this locality
in a body somo very hot day and
seo how thoy would like to live in
such a pestilential locality.
On tho upper sido of King
street the samo condition of affairs
obtains. Thero is an embank
ment purtly mado and partly till
ed in, but bohiud that tho con
dition of alt'airs iB ovon worso
than before tho oholora.
Tho writor was told thoro wore
only four or livo niou "tinkering"
on this great public improvement,
and tinkering is just tho word to
upply to what has been douo so
far, and that thero was no monoy
to continue tho work. hat bus
monoy to do with a matter that Is
of vital importance to tho health
of tho community ? Monoy waa
procured for tho suppression of
the cholora and money can bo pro
cured again for necessary Biuiitu
ry improvements it tho Board
of Health will tako hold of tho
matter and insibl on tho work be
