SATURDAY, FEU. 13, 1897.
Tuberculosis iu cattlo existed
iu Honolulu many years ago.
Whether it is more prevalent now
than foMiiorly may not1bo decid
ed by tbe fnct that it is causing
unusual commotion between tho
heultb authorities nud dairymen.
Po3nil)ly tho uxoitomuut on tho
1'nciuV Coast and iu other coun
tries has caused alarm here and
induced iucreasod vigilance iu in
vestigating the extent o tho mala
dy. At all ovouts, tho matter
calls for tho most judiuious treat
ment that the best minds of tho
community cau bring to boar up
on it. Before oxtromo measures
of, any kind a'ro taken, also, the
results of investigation and action
taken under skilled and scientific
direction abroad should bo collect
ed and carofully weighed. There
nro weighty concorns on two sides
of tho question tho public health
nnd the rights of privato proper
ty. As to tho public, it is not
clear, from any evidence as yet
produced, that there is occasion
for anything like a panic. Yot
there is doubtless reason for pro
caution. The degree of danger to
human kind from iufectiou by
meat or milk from cowa affected
with tuboroulosta, whilo apparent
ly iu good condition, is a question
ou which thero is considorablo
variance of opinion. That view
is probably sound which holds
that people oE sound constitution,
with bodily functions iu good
working order, are less liable to
- infection from this as well as any
other disordor than those o weak
natural powers oE resistance. All
kinds of constitution, at the samo
time, havo means oE protection
from the infection in question,
which it is tho part of wisdom to
employ, independently of what tho
authorities may see tit to adopt
on behulf of tho whole public.
These means are thorough
cooking oE meat and boil
ing of milk. With regard to
the rights oE private property,
there is much disoussion going on
elsewhere. It arises over the
question oE compensation for in
fected cattlo destroyed by order
of the authorities. An opinion
ventured by the writor to an offi
cial of the Board of Health a Eow
days ago has boon expressed it is
noticed iu tho papers from the
Coast just received by a State
Senator of California. Ho puts
it this way: "If an animal is so
badly diseased as to bo killed, I
don't understand how it can havo
any commercial value that the
Siato should make good." Should
this opinion prevail, it makes
hasty action in destroying cattlo
tho moro to be doprecatod. "Pro
fosBor Alvord of tho National
Dairy Bureau," tho Senator just
quoted relates, "recently said in a
locturo boforo tho California
Dairymen's Association that he
wanted to outer a vigorous protest
against this sudden onslaught
on tho cow. He thought that there
was a disposition in sevoral States
to act too prooipitatoly in tho mat
ter aud that tho diseaso would bo
bettor understood by waiting a
roasouablo timo. His idea is that
it is not so dangerous as people
imagine it to bo. Ho oven wont
bo far as to say that cows affected
by tuberculosis could be safely
used for brooding purposos and
that thoir milk could bo ntilizod if
properly treated by some raothod
) of sterilization. Ho strongly de
precated the proposition of killing
all cattle that showod symptoms
of tuborculosis." Lot us in Ha
waii bo careful how wo procood.(
It is said to bo a fact that the
highest bred and best tronted cat
tlo are the most liable to show
.symptoms of tuborculosis.
DUeovcrlel !' tint Oftlrlnl Alilt M
Chomist W. T. Wcuzol has sub
mitted his report for tho month
of January to tho Board of Health.
He has been making aualysos of
a number oE tho so-called puro
food products sold in tho local
market, and has discovered that,
instead o being pure many of the
samplod oxaminod woro so highly

consists of three parts of milk de
prived o about oue-third of its

tho St. Charles' unsweetened evap
Sample oE unsweetened eva
porated cream, makor unknown,
contained two parts oE normal
milk condensed to ono part. Tho
samo result was found with
Howoll's evaporated oroam.
"It will bo Been," says the
chemist, "that tho samples oxa
minod are not croam, but are
simply milk, very poor in butter
fat, and condeused, except tho last
two moutioned, which are mado
from a good quality of milk."
Tho roport on condensed milks
is as follows:
Challenge brand, mado in New
York, consists of about five parts
of milk deprived of nearly one
half of its butter fat, thickened
with cauo sugar and evaporated to
ono part. Tho Gail Borden Eaglo
brand is the same except it con
tains only four parts of milk.
Rose brand, mado by tho Anglo
Swiss Condensing Company, con
sists of three and ono half parts of
milk, deprived of 25 per cent of
its butter fat, thiokened with sugar
and condensed to one part.
American brand, made in San
Francisco, consists of six parts of
milk,- from which nearly tbreo
fourths of its buttor fat has been
removed and than thickened with
"The s.implos of condensed
milk," tho chemist continues,
"plainly show that the buttor fat
is greatly deficient. I think a
standard should be adopted which
will compel tho manufacturers to
condense four parts oE puro un
skimmed milk to one part by
weight, and such a product could
bo made so as to contain tho con

Thero is buttor and thoro is

THE greatly Increased price of cream of tartar, the
chief ingredient of a pure baking powder, has in
duced some manufacturers to substitute burnt alum
(which costs but 3 cts. a pound), largely or wholly in
lieu thereof, making a very low cost but a very un
wholesome baking powder; and great efforts are made
to foist these inferior powders upon consumers by the
inducement of a lower price and by grossly false repre
sentations as to their ingredients and comparative value.
Alum baking powders have been declared by the most
competent authorities injurious to health. Therefore
every precaution must be taken to keep them out of
the house. They masquerade under many names, and
new brands are continually appearing.
It is safe to avoid all new brands. Baking
powders that are sold either wholesale or retail at
a lower price than Royal are almost invariably
made from alum, and therefore not only inferior
in quality, but positively dangerous to health.
Consumers can be more certainly protected from
alum baking powders, and make the wholesomeness
of their food doubly sure, by rigidly refusing all sub
stitutes for Royal Baking Powder. The Royal is cer
tified by the Government and State chemists free from
alum, absolutely pure, and superlative in leavening
It is unwise to take chances by the

terviewed today on tho subject of
the speech of Joseph Chamber
lain, Secretary of Stato for the
Colonios, in the House of Com
mons ou Friday, during which
Chamberlain said, among other
things, that there had been
a revival of unrest iu South
Africa; that recent legislation of
the Transvaal Republic wbb part
ly contrary to the convention of
London, and that President
Krueger had not kept his promise
to give full aud favorable con
sideration of tho griovauces of the
Krueger is quoted as saying:
"I strongly disapprove of inter
mixing the so-called Uitlaiider
grievances with the Chartered
Company's froobooting invasiou
of tho Transvaal. Tho latter ad
mits of no whitewashing, and nn
local causes justified such a crimi
nal raid. I have always used, and
am still using, all my influence to
diminish raco hatred, but recent
utterances ou the other side aro
adding fuel to tho lire."
These are days of considerable
anxiety and porploxity to. all who
havo possessions or other iuteroBts
in the Republic of Hawaii, and it
is time that our citizens came to a
mutual understanding on sovoral
important issues. The prospects
for Annexation appear at prosont
vague and indistinct, aud our
destiny cannot bo foretold with
certainty. There are those, also,
who still fondly cling to the hopo
of a return to the old order of
things, and who cannot be per
suaded othorwise, yet this out
look appears far moro hazy than
that of Annexation even to tho
most hopeful disciples of tho
Monarchy. But, fortunately, in
tho midst of all this uncertainty
thoro is solaco in tho fact that
Buffalo Boor has came-to stay aud
that patrons of nil sorts aud
opinions may equally share the
bunehts of its ltivigoratiug and
sustaiuing properties. Wo are
moroover assured that this favorite
