Thoro was a special ineoting of
tho Board of Health on Saturday
afternoon to tnko action on the
outbreak of diphtheria. Thoro
wero present W. O. Smith, T. F.
Lansing, D. Koliipio and Dr.
'Wood, members; also Drs. How
ard, Alvarez and Raymond, oxo
cutivo officor Reynolds and clerk
Attorney - General Smith said
tho mooting was called' to tako
somo action with regard to the
provalenco of dipb.tb.oria. Dr.
Howard had roportcd to him an
other case of the diseaso, a Japa
nese child at Moiliili, near tho
quarry. Dr. Howard had been
th ore threo times, much against
tho objection of tho parents who
claimed tho government physician
hncl no business thoro. Ho had
takon a spocimon of tho mucous
from tho child's throat which had
beon examined and developed by
Dr. Alvarez, who found tho bacil
lus of diphtheria. Went again
Friday with two Japanese physi
cians. Found tho child had
coughed up portions of mem
brane which had been destroyed.
Told tho physicians thoro would
be no interference with them if
they followed tho regulations of
the Board of Health.
Dr. Alvarez said bo was satis
iied it was a caso of diphthoria.
Dr. Howard reported another
caso on Queen streot. The child
wqb not vory sick but tho falsa
membrano was viuiblo ull over tho
throat. Sauitary condition of tho
houso waB good, aB was also that
of the other houso nt tho quarry.
Mr. Smith How loug is tho
case to bo segregated ?
Dr. Howard Several clays, tho
poriod of incubation is 8 days.
Dr. Wood Say 1 to 12 days.
Mr. Smith How about tho
strictness of tho quarantino ?
Dr. Wood I would keep peo
ple out of the sick rooms. It is
necessary to warn every one not
to go near tho sick child. The
bacillus of diphtheria will last for
months. Peoplo who would not
obey instructions nud persist in
goiug near patients should be put
Mr. Smith To what do you
aseribo tho causo of these out
Dr. Wood To tho presonco in
tho city of the diphtheria bacillus,
most probably brought hero from
San Irouoisoo. Thoro is plenty
of it there.
Mr. Smith What action shall
wo tako in regard to quarantin
Dr. Howard I would leave tho
matter to tho discretion of the
Ou motion Dr. Howard and
Executivo Ollicer Reynolds wero
empowered to ouforco such qunr
autiuo regulations aB thoy may
deem best. If the parties havo
competent physiuiaus iu atten
dance thoro is to bo no Govern
ment intorforeuce. If tho instruc
tions givou are not followed strict
ly thou tho pluco is to bo quurau
tined. Dr. Wood suggested calling all
tho physicians in tho city together.
Ho cited the case of a child on
Emma streot which he had heard
of and wont to investigate Ho
found two competent physioiaus
in charge. Tho child's throat had
been cauterized but the patiout
had died. Ho had tho child's
larynx takon out and given to Dr.
Alvarez, who found the
diphthoria bacillus in cultures
made from it. It waB undoubt
edly a caso of that diseaso.
Tho physicians wore both com
potout white men ami had good
counsol with others ovor tho caso.
Mr. Lansing suggested tho
Bending of tho following circular
to every licoused physician in
"Dear Sir: In view of tho fact
that thoro havo been at loost four
oases of undoubted diphthoria in
Honolulu within a period of leu
days ami also that thoro aro at
this timo iu tho city a considerable
number of "soro throats," tho
Hoard of Health requests thut
yon will immediately report r.nyj
caso iu your practise which you
consider oven suspicious. Dr.
Alvarez will hold himself in
rendinoss to examine any exudato
or othor specimen which you may
refer to him for bacteriological
' Ou tho suggestion of Dr. Alvarez
all physiciuus and school teachors
woro notified to roport to tho
Board all cobob of nggravatod soro
throat coming to their attention.
A socond special meoting of the
Board was convonod at 10 min
utes to 0 this morning to tako ac
tion on the arrival of tho steam
ship China. Thoro woro present
President Smith nnd members
Brown, Day, Lansing and Wood.
President Smith reported the
arrival of the China, leovingYo
kohama on April 24, witu six
cabin, Gl Ohineso and 256 Jnpo
noso for Honolulu. Tho Japanese
had boon quarantined for 14 days
previous to leaving Yokohama.
Thoro was no sickness on board
of any kind and had been none
on tho voyage
Dr. Eldridgo roported that for
tho two woeks provious to tho
sailing of tho China thoro had
been but 8 cases of smallpox in
Yokohama with 2 deaths. Ho
considered tho opidomic appar
ently at an ond.
President Smith under tlieso
circumstances favored tho saloon
passougers boing allowed to laud
and tho through pacBengers to
corao tiBhoro if thoy .viahed. In s
letter from Dr. Eldridgo that phy
sician stotod that in all his exper
ience bo uovor know of a case of
smallpox among cabin passon
gors. Dr. Wood favored tho rolease of
the steorage passongers nt tho ond
of 18 days from tho timo of leav
ing Yokohama. Tho stoorago
passongers must go into qunran
tiuo as usual. Saloon passongers
to be nllowort to land. There woro
Ohineso women from Hongkong
on board who camo in tho En
ropeau steoraRO nnd did not in nny
way miuglo with tho others in the
President Smith thought if Dr.
Day was satisfied of that fact, tho
women should bo allowed to land
as well aB tho saloon passongers.
Mr. Lausing was in favor of
not allowing people from tho
shore on board tho vessel, at least
not into tho steerage.
Dr. Day said thoro woro 270
tons of freight on board for this
port from Yokohama aud 12 from
Hongkong aud suggested that it
bo fumigated as usual and the'
Board so ordered, in spite of ob
jections by President Smith who
thought that such fumigation was
unnecessary unless tho cobos had
beon opened and thoir contonts

Tho Japan Gazetto of April 11
! gives credit to the Japan Tirueu
for tho following:
"At the Cabinet Council hold
yesterday TuoBduy, it wns do
cidod to dispatch a man of-war to
Hawaii for tho protection of tho
Jnpaueso residents. Tho cruiser
Naniwa has been choBen for tho
mission, aud instructions woro at
onco isBiied to hor to got ready for
tho voyago as soon ns possible.
Sho will convoy Mr. Akiyama,
Councillor of tho Foroign Office,
who will be tho bearer of instruc
tions from tho luiparial Govern
ment to Minister Shimamura.
AVe presurao that a singlo ship
will bo amply sufficient for the
purposo of protecting our nationals
in ( Hawaii. Apart from that
object thoro is, as wo havo already
pointed out, nothing in tho pro
sent condition of affairs which
calls for a Naval display in Ha
waiian waters. Whothor such a
contingency may arise, deponds
outirely upon the attitude of the
Hawaiian Government. So far as
the Imperial Government is con
cerned, wo presume that thoro is
no intention to depart from tho
usual process of amicable negotia
tions. Wo also trust that, ou
calm consideration of tho matter,
tho Cabinot at Honolulu will see
its tvuy to rorneiljitig thf wioug
which has undoubtedly been done
to our countrymen". Nothing
would be moro regiettablo than to
boo tho matter transformed into a
serious diplomatic complication
between this country ond tho
United States a contingency
which is not by any moans im
possible, aud which, we fear, is
oxactly what somo politicians in
Hawaii aro most desirous of bring
ing about. Japan will not ilitich
from meeting manfully any turn
the question may assume, but it
would bo extremely deplorublo,
should circumstances forco any
serious rupture with a nation to
which wo owe so much in our
past efforts to advanco nloug tho
path of the now civilization. We,
however, repeat our hopo that no
such disagreeable situation will
arise out of tho present troublo."
Tho Gazette itself says editori
ally: "Hawaii has less diguity
to support than Japan, but that
does not oxcuse an un warrantable
infraction of the Treaties, and her
attitude necessitates .lapau taking
immediato measures to have tho
matter -placed ou a moro satisfac
tory footing. But whether tho
stop Japan has decided upon is
wiso, or calculated still further to
provoko the fears entertained at
Honolulu, is an open question.
Sho has ordered the Naniwa to
proceed at onco to tho islands,
i'lio presonco of this ship, which
achioved a peculiar notoriety in
the lato war by sinking tho Kow
shing and massacring tho
crow in tho water, may in
ilame tho 10,000 Japanese iu Ha
waii to bucIi an extent as
to imperil public peoco. Thoro
is no doubt that tho Japanese aro
a fighting nice; Unit tLcy do not
fear death, and that onco aroused
they may bo capablo of commit
ting outrages of a very serious
character. But a rising of tho
Japaneso in the Islands is not tho
ouiy thing to bo feared. The
Hakusan Marti was to start today
with several hundred emigrants
and by the time she arrives tho
Nauiwa will bo alroady in port.
That looks as if Japan wero anx
ious to muko"a test case; by forc
ing tho matter to an immediato
issuo. The Captain of tho Naniwa
will find himself iu a very delicato
and difficult situation, but, fortu

In many rospects the ball game
lost Saturday afternoon between
tho St. Louis nnd Regiment teams
resombled that of tho week pre
vious, for tho St. Louis team made
about as good a stand boforo tho
Regiments ns tho lattor did before
tho Stars tho week provious. In
somo respects, howovor, it was
differentj-much to tho regret of the
rcnu'agomout, tho Bulletin is as
sured. Tho plnyiug of the Regi
mout team wob marked through
out by an utter disregard of tho
rulos of coaching and by a dis
play of rowdyism among the
Regiment players and thoir sup
porters in tho grand stand that
would havo done credit to Tar
Flat in San Francisco. Cnptain
Gorman of tho Regiments should
have enforced better discipline
among his. team but iustoad took
tho lead in showing how little ho
knew nbout playing gentlemanly
bull. His en"orts wero ably acc
ouded by Kiloy and a lot of
"rootors" with him in tho grand
stand and if tho polico had dono
their duty they would nil havo
boeu promptly ejected. Such
actions and language ns was used
by this crowd lust Saturday will
stop decont men, let alono ladies,
from patronizing any mor tmines
in which tho Regiment pfayora
take part. In addition, tho Regi
ment players invaded tho press
stuud in spito of tho protest of
scorer nnd reporters and from that
point of vantage coached the game
and mndo disparaging remarks on
the play. Mr. Hennessey was a
shining exaraplo of this latter
crowd aud ho needs to bo sat up
Theso things must not bo re
pented or the management will
quickly find that the balanco of
tho soason's games will bo played
to empty benches. Tho Honolulu
public will patronizo good clean
ball games but ono Tar Flat gamo
is enough. To tho credit of Cap
tain Thompson's team it may bo
stated that thoir conduct was tho
exact opposite of that of tho Regi
ments. Tho details of tho game are
given below, tho finnl score being
20 to G in favor of tho sohliors:
For tho Regiments Mooro woa
