Many people, after a long spell of
oppressivo heat, suffer from lassi
tude, loss of spirits, and a general
"run down" feeling. They need a
courso of Ayer's Sarsaparllla, n
mediciuo which has rovived and
restored to activo life and health
thousands of such sufferers. A lady
recently returned to England from
South Africa writes concerning this
" Wonderful Medicine"
""Wlillo In Capo Town tho past
summer I suffered greatly from tho
long-continued heat. I was com
pletely worn out ; my blood seemed
to becomo ai thin a5 water, and I
lost all energy and Interest in life.
My friends recommended Ayer's
Sarsaparllla, and a courso of this
wonderful modicino restored my
health and spirit"). My husband suf
fered in tho samo way as I did,
though not to such an extent, and
ho also was greatly benefited from

After reading tho minutes Pre
sident Smith stated that ho had
conferred With Sheriff Garter in
rogard to tho pollution of tho
water of Nawihwili stream by
refuse from tho mill and had as
certained tho cause. Tho manager
of the plantation, as well as tho
agents in this city, had been noti
fied to promptly abate tho nui
sance or be prosecuted.
Dr. MonBarrat being confined

Inspector Kcliipio reported the
examination of 39,578 fish at the

Dr. Myers reported 71 examina
tions under tho Act to Mitigato
during tho week.
Several matters noted in Super
intendent Moyer'a letters from tho
Lepor Settlement woro laid over
until his arrival next week.
Tho clerk reported in relation
to tho Maguiro cattlo received at
the settlement after tho awarding
of a new contract, and tho bill
was ordered paid at old contract
Harold B. Elliott of Hilo wrote
that the British residouts of that
city wero desirous of colebrating
tho 60th anniversary of Queen
Victoria's reign by building an
nunex to the if Ho hospital, to be
knowu as the Victoria cottage.
Mr. Elliott wanted to know if tho
cottage wasbuilt whether its in
mateB would receivo medical at
tendance, nursing, etc., tho samo as
patients in the main building.
It was tho opinion of the Board
that they should, provided tho
new cottago was directly under
tho control of tho Board. There
was no objection to the building
of tho cottago on tho hospital
grounds, but tho Hoard desired
more definite information than
was contained in the letter of Mr.
Elliott and Mr. Smith promised
to obtain it.
Dr. J. B. Clifford, of San Fran
cisco, a graduate of tho California
College of Medicine in 1894, wroto
to the Board for appoiument to
any vacancy. There being none
tho letter was filed for future

Wailuku hospital wroto concern
ing a bill of $197, contracted
for attendance on Mothor
Lamb. W. H. Cornwell had bo
come responsible for tho bill but
had decliued to pay tho amount,
thinking it excessive. Mr. Smith
thought that Mr. Coruwoll's cha
rity should entitlo him to consid
erable reduction on regular rates
and it was settled that a uhnrgn of
81.50 porday only should bo niado.
This will make a material reduc
tion in tho amount.
Dr, Weddick wroto that as tho
Waiauao plantation had engaged
tho services of Dr. T. T. French
ho would resign tho position of
government physician at that
placo, With tho Ewa and now
Uahu plantations nud his duties
lis govorumont physician at Ewa
district, Dr. Weddick thought ho
would liavo his hands full,
Tho ltairrt agreed with him,

Dr, Howard reported thnl lio

Hohnol children, wllh (inly 8'J
failures. Ho also staled (hut mime
of llio school teachers ntill Ignored

It wob decided that tho oud of
the school year was too close at
hand to do anything now. At the
commencement of tho now one
tho school toncheiH roforred to

Much timo was tukon up with
discussion over tho caso of a ltau
ai lepor boy whose fathor wants
him kept at Kalihi iiibtdiul of bu
ing pout to tho settlement. It was
finally settled that ho bo allowed
to remain until tho somi-annual
visit of tho Board, which will tako
plnco in threo or four weeks.
Tho caso of another leper who
had been at Kalihi ovor two
mouths to havo his tooth fixed
was called up. It was ascertained
that a prominent dentist was real
ly working on the man's mouth
all of that timo and that ho had
not yet got through with the
Mr. Browu said that was noth
ing out of tho way with dentists.
One of thorn had worked threo
months for him on one siuglo
Dr. Day wont Mr. Brown one
better by saying that ho had awholo
lot of dentists woikiug on one
of his tooth fpr twenty years. He
had tho tooth pulled out last wcok
and now ho thought he would
soon bo nblo to accumulate a little
money for him.
Mr. Brown subsided and tho
man who was having his teeth
fixed got tho sympathy of tho Board
and will not bo molested until
tho dentist gets through with him.
Rev. Mr. Mackintosh wroto to
tho Board concerning tho caso of
George Woods, tho ball player.
Woods was in tho last stages of
consumption nnd would probably
not live moro than a few mouths.
He was a dopondent on two
younger brothers for what caro
and attention ho received. Mr.
Mackintosh was in hopes tho
Board would find some means to
assist tho boy.
President Smith said that his
mothor had beou a nativo womiu
and his father a negro. Under
the circumstancos ho would cloar

Jnpauese Government at the Yo
kohama quarantine station and
tho difficulty ho had in following
oat tho instructions of tho Board.
In connection with thoso letters
Mr. Smith brought up tho bubject
of Dr. Day being sent to accom
pany tho Unitod Statoa export
from the United States Mariuo
Hospital Service and urged tho
matter on tho Board at consider
ablo length. Tho expense would
bo but very slight, as ho thought
tho steamship company would
givo him a freo passage back and
forth. Tho total expenses of tho
trip ho had taken with Dr. Wood
had only amounted to $381 and
ho thought tho experionco gained
by Dr. Day in his capacity of port
physician would moro thau com
pensate tho outlay. Of courso,
tho doctor would bo paid a small
compensation for his timo and
loss of praetiso. Dr. Wood had
received S-100 for the loss of his
practise on his trip and ho
thought Dr. Day would bo satis
fied with tho same.
Dr. Day, in answor to a direct

About 11 o'clock this morning
on the eoruor of Hotel and Nuu
anu etreots, spooial ollicor Cordes
tapped J. B. Sutton, purser of the
steamship Alameda, ou the
shoulder aud told him to cousidor
himself under arrest for importing
"How do you know I havo got
any opium ?" asked the purser.
"I can see it sticking out from
your pants," replied tho officor.
Mr. Sutton acknowledged tho
fact and went along to tho police
station, whe.ro ho was searched.
In tho rear portion of his pauta
loons were found false pockets ex
tending down both legs. In these
pockets woro found seven half
pound tins of opium. Mr. Sutton
was locked up on a chargo of
importing opium, in the
meantime soudiug for his attor
uey, Paul Neumann.
Gus Cordes, who made the ar
rest, was seen by a reporter short
ly aftorward. Ho said ho had long
had tho Alameda's purser undor his
englo oyo and on his last trip hero
had shadowed his ovory movement.
Nothing suspicious had happened
end ho had no opportunity to
mako an arrest. This morning
Sutton had made threo trips up
town aud had boon followod to
see where ho wont. On
tho fourth trip a confe
derate on. tho steamer gavo
tho officer tho tip and it was
known Sutton had opium on him
whon ho went down tho gang
plank. Ho was not arrested thou bo
cause it was desired to find out who
was to receive tho drug. Two otfi
cers followed Sutton to Hotel street
where ho stopped at tho entrance
of a certain store as if about to go
in. He changed his mind, how
ever, and went on to Nuuanu
streot. As Cordes was afraid
Sutton had been warned at the
storo that ho was being followed
he quickly overtook his man aud
From itber sourcos it is learned
that the police havo bovn in pos
session of information that Sutton
was in the opium business for
soma mouths paBt, and it was
determined to havo him syste
matically watched ovory timo ho
was in port. Cordes nnd another
officer were assigned to tho duty
this morning, and every raovu
mado by Sutton today is known.
It was hoped to catch his confed
erate but that individual was evi
dently awaro that something was
up and warned Suttou not to enter
Sutton has been fourteen years
in tho omploy of tho Btonmship
company aud this is tho first
timo ho has been in any
trouble. Many peoplo would
not boliovo that Sutton had boon
arrested and wont to tho polico
station to vorify tho roport.
Collector McStockor nnd Port
Surveyor Stratomoyer, who wuro
seen later, say the customs guards
wore not to blamo in passing Sut
ton through tho gates. From time
immemorial it has been tho un
written law on tho dock that cap
tains and pursers of ocoan steam -ors
should uot bo subjected to tho
indignity of a search, aud that if
nothing suspicious appcarod about
them tiicy should be allowed to
pass the gato without any. Pursor
Sutton nearly always woro a coat
with long tails aud for that reason
the guards noticed nothing biispi
cioun. Conies, of courso, having

AVaihington, April ('. "Thero
aro but two futures before Ha
waii," said Lorriu A. Thurstou,"
ex-Minister to tho United States
from tho islands, who is here in
charge of tho annexation propa
ganda. "The islands must bo an
nex tod to tho United States, or
Asiatic influence will become
supremo. We do not fear any
forciblo invasion by tho Jnpauese,
nor do wo fear tho forciblo pos
session of tho islands by any
European country. If wo aro not
to bo annexed to tho United Statos
the rapid increase of the Asiatic
population will swamp us within
a fow years. This is inevitable
from our commercial conditions.
The planters are tho controlling
influence ou the islands. If Ha
waii is to remain outside of the
United States and bo subjected to
the possibility of high protective
duties on her commodities tha
planters must necessarily protect
thombol'ves by employingx tho
cheapest of cheap labor.
Thoro is uothinu between Ha
waii and tho United States now
but a mere treaty, which can bo
abrogated nt any time by Act, of
Congress. Onco in the United
States, tho planters could afford
to pay American rates of wages,
because their products would not
have to pasB through tho Custom
house. So long as they uio at the
mercy of chpning political con
ditions in ttio united States they
must continue to employ cheap
labor. Tho result will bo that,
unless annexation comes speedily,
the islands will bo overwhelmed
with Asiatics, who, in tho natural
courso of evonts, must sooner or
later nssumo control.
"Wo do not ask for admission
as a Stato, nor do we want it. An
nexation on such tonus would ba
particularly disastrous to Hawaii
and would givo to America an uu
desirablo State. If annexation ia
to como at all it should bo ou tho
basis established iu tho caso of
Florida uud Louisiana, or on the
lines originally laid down for the
"Tho islands could be acceptably
managed by an appointivo Gov
ernor, with an advisory council.
Tho islands need not havo as
much legislative powor as is noxr
granted to the organized Terri
tories of tho United States. We
would bo perfectly willing to ac
cept tho conditions usually im
posed upou organized 1 territories,
nud they would, iu fact, bo the
very best for Hawaii for yoara to
"On tho othor hand, for tho
reasons I havo indicated, absolute
political union with tho United
States must como at onco, or it
will bo too late to put a stop to
ohoap Asiatio labor. With annex
ation, wo can support huudreds of
thousands of prosperous citizous
