Many people, after a long spoil of
oppru!Miu item, buU'or from lassi
tude, loss of spirits, and a general
"run down" feoling. They need a
courso of Aycr's Sarsaparllla, n
medlclno which has revived and

thousands of such suffcrors. A lady

nnd Koliipio. Agent Reynolds,

wore also on Laud.
Dr. Monsarrat's- reports of the

Dr. Myors' roport showed 79 ex
aminations nndor the Act to Miti

examination of -10,521 fish during
the past week.
A number of letters woro receiv
ed from Superintendent Meyer
of tbo leper settlement. Ono of
theso mentioned the nrrivnl of -15
head of cattlo from Hawaii on the
7th, orYi days after tho expiration
ul tLu Ouuiract. He lathei thought
that this was au intorforenco with
the contract just made by himself
and nskod tho Board to tako somo
action in tho matter.
Mr. Brown thought tho old con
tractors bnd probably notrecoivod
notice of tho making of a now
one. At any rato tho cattlo should
not be paid for except on tho
terms of tho now contract.
It was ordered that tho olork
innko an investigation into tho
facts of tho shipment and with
hold approval of tho bill until the
further order of tho Board.
Dr. Mouritz wrote tho Board in
regard to a roqusBt he had ro-
coivoa irom ur. iiiUiors, in chargo
of tho arrangements for tho forth
coming Leprosy Congress to take
placo in Berlin this summer.
Dr. EhlerB wanted a full roport
on leprosy in these islands.
Dr. Wood stated that tho Medi

tho matter bo referred to tho

A communication from Minis
ter Coopor was read, stating that
tho Government desired tho
Board to niako ns full and com
plete an investigation as possible
into the origin of tho proeout out
break of smallpox.
Sovoral members of tho Board
soomed to think thoy could not
do auything moro than had been
dono. Thoroy was tho positive
statement of tho captain
of the vosboI that tho man
who had diod on board foil
down tho hatchway and broke his
nock. Then again there was tho
fact that smallpox had broken out
in spito of 1-1 days quarantine at
Yokohama and 20 days on tho
Dr. Day said thoro must havo
boon smallpox on tho voyage.
Either tho cases had boon very
light and had been concealed or
thore had boon deaths from the
disease not roportcd.
Agent Reynolds Btated that act
ing undor directions of Ministor
Cooper, Mr. McVeigh with tho
assistance of 'Japanese officer
Toma as intorpretor had already
commoncod a systematic examina
tion of tho immigrants as to how
tho man had diod who was report
ed to havo fallen off tho hatch.
Up to noon ovory ono of thorn
who had been questioned told the
samo story. That the wcatbor
boing lino a portion of tho hutch
covers had 'boon romoved. Tho
man was lying asloop on tho othor
portion and by a sudden lurch of
tho vessel -was thrown below,
breakiug his nock. Mr. McVeigh
thought if thoy woro not tolling
tho truth thoy had nil been woll
drilled to toll tho samo story.
They all denied that there had
beon any sickness on board.
Dr. Day said that thero wore
now five casos of the disease, each
of whichvhad appeared within 2-1
hours of the' othor. It was beyond
doubt that thoy came from a com
mon source. That sourco was now
either at the quarantine station or
on board the ship, and it was still
poBsiblo to discovor tho man.
Tho Board decided to ask Mr.
McVeigh to continue his investi
gation and also to instruct Dr.
Emorson to mako a personal .ex
amination of each immigrant to
eoo if ho could find any recent
pits or othor signs of the disease
on their bodies.
Agent Reynolds in speaking of
tho matter lot drop the remark
that he had 6een Minister Coopor
shortly beforo, nnd Mr. Brown at
onco wanted to know how, when
Mr. Reynolds said that ho had
roro mit to fho Castle premif-os in
tho morning to see tho Ministor
and get him to sign certain ueces
sary papers. He had gone inside
tho premises and within a very
fow feot of tho Minister himself.
Mr. Brown wanted to know
what sort of quarantine this was
when people could bo allowod to
visit people in quarantine as thoy
saw ht? Such a quarantine was a
Mr. Lansing also expressed
similar viows, while drawing his
ohair further away from Mr. Rey
nolds. Dr. Wood, while agreeing with
the othor membors that tho qua
rantine should not havo boen
violated, said no harm had been
done bo far and could not have
been. A false improssion hnd
gone abroad and tho Board had
beon censured for allowing thoso
now in quarantine to rido about
tho city in hacks. There was no
daugor at all in this and for all
practical purposes no quarantine
at all was necessary for tho first
weok. The law of smallpox wob
this: That no person who hod
boon exposed to the diseaso could
commuuicato it to othors until ho
himself first developed symptoms
of the diseaso. Tho period of in
cubation was from 9 to 14 days.
Previous to tho ninth day it was
utterly impossiblo for him to give
the disease to anyone else. It was
true tho infection could bo trans
mitted in clothing, but not in this
caB0,for all the clothing worn had
boon disinfected with hot air and
tho clothing thoy camo to tho city
in was different from that worn
during tho examination.
Mr. Brown wautod to know
what was tho use of any quaran
tine at all undor thoso circum
stances. Dr. Wood said thoro were two
reasons First to bo able to keop
tho partios under observation, and
second to bo ablo to know thoir
exact whereabouts. From the
niuth to tho fourlGnntli lnv nff,-
oxpoauro ovory person should bo
carefully wutched and if ho show
ed sjgna of tho disease isolatod
and promptly treated. If all ex
posed personB woro scattored
about the city and thoir where
abouts unknown these moasuros
could not bo enforced as favorably
as in quarantine.
Mr. Brown insistod that ns thoro
had boon communication with
quarantined persons without the
knowledge of tho Board it
ought not to occur again oven if
no damage had boon dono. Guards
should bo placed to prevent it.
Mr. Lansing: Will tho guards
bo considered in quarantine also?
Dr. Day: Cortainly, night and
day. Thoy must not leavo tho

Mr. Lansing: Thori is nnothor
subject wo must consider. In

-is to be dono with the bodies?
Dr. t 00(1. Iirnilllltlv! Crptnntn
Mr. I.aiibiug: How?

Mr. Brown: .fls there firewood

Mr. Lansing: If thore isn't
thcie's plenty of coal in town and
the Board's credit is good.
Dr. Day: The mattor of a
crematory has been considered
beforo during the cholera epi
demic There was a report on tho
mattor, I boliovo, and nothing
dono further. A crematory is a
necessity. It may be needed any
day. One should be built at tho
quarantino station at once. I
propose that wo go ahead and
build it. We havo tho powor to
do so as a raearfure ot public
Mr. Lansing: How about

The Board seeming to ngreo

Dr. Day: Thero is a mattor 1
dosiro to bring up. It must bo
ovident to evory member of tho
Board that all our quarantino re
gulations at tho othor ond of tho
line havo failed. Wo can placo
no reliance on the reports of
oilicors of tramp stoatnorB, ovon
when thoy aro Europeans, for
thoy aro deceived by tho Japanese
under them. This wns tho case
with Captain Youug, and it has
evon happened on regular linors.
Tho Bclcic, for instance li, is
patent to all of us that thoro has
been smallpox on this vossel
fiinco she went into quarantino at
Yokohama, and yet it has boon
concealed from un. Thero
remains but ono thing for
us to do. If wo cannot roly on
tho quarantino abroad wo can on
that bore. I proposo that wo
longtheu tho period of quarpntiuo

it will bo our own fault.
Dr. Wood: We must protoct
oursolves. It is by tho sheerest
good luok that wo aro not face to
tuco with a smallpox epidotnio to
day, one which would havo ex
tended throughout tho islands. If
it had not been for tho investiga
tion into tho standing of thoso
immigrants by tho government
thoy would have scattered small-
fiox broadcast throughout tho
and. We must tako no more such
clmncos as these.
Dr. Day: As tho Board soems
to agree with mo, I will move that
hereafter the period of quarantino
for steerage passongors coming
from infoctod ports be 18 days
from tho timo of arrival, the Board
to designato in oaoh instanco the

of any war vossel arriving from
Japan she should bo subject to tho
