At tho meeting of the Board of
Health yesterday there wore pre

T. F. Lansing and D. Eeliipio,
members, Agent Reynolds, Secre

President Smith made the sug
gestion that the Legislature should
be asked to make laws requiring
the strict examination of all live
stock intended for these islands
previous to embarkation, and if
necessary previous quarantine.
Such laws were in force in other
countries. He desired the mem
bers to think the matter ovor.as ho
intended to bring it up for aotion
in the future.
Fish Inspector Eeliipio's re
port showed that 45,728 fish were
received at the market last week.
Dr. R. P. Myers reported mak
ing 78 examinations under the
Act to Mitigate.
A communication was rcoeivod
from Agent Meyer of the Leper
Settlement that he was unable to

reasonof siokness, and inclosing
reports on matters at tho Leper
Settlement, among them a report
from his deputy, Mr. Hutohinson,
of the stabbing affray recently
noted in thoso columns. In the
matter of Holt's coffee house, Mr.
Meyer recommended that his pe

President Smith brought up a
matter which requires investiga
tion. It appers that large quanti
ties of the Goto remedies for
leprosy are being Bold in this city.
As these remedies aro only im
ported by the Board and sent
direct to Dr. Oliver at tho Settle
ment, someone must be bringing
them back to Honolulu.
Agent Reynolds told of one
man, who is at tho Ealihi receiv
ing station, selling $25 worth of
the remedies last week. It was
afterward found that this man had
been a sort of storekooper for Dr.
Oliver, and had access to tho modi
cine. Tho Board conoluded to
niako a personal investigation at
tho Bettloraout next week.
President Smith extonded on
behalf of tho Board an invitation
to thn tlirnft rnnnrtnrn nrnnrmt to
I send one representative from each
papor with tho Uoard at its semi
annual visit to tho settlement.
Dr. Watt,the government physi
cian at Lihuo, sent a report on the
condition of the Nawiliwili
stream, which he had beon re
quested to examine. The doctor
reported that the Lihue mill had
shut down and consequently the
contaminations complained of had
ceased for the present. He had,
however, traced them up and in
accordanoe with his report Sheriff
Gartor as agent of tho Board of
Health will bo notified to inform
the management of the Lihue
mill that they must repair and
widen a certain flume running
over the Nawiliwili and clean out
the ditch running round the hill
side. Tho proposod Victoria an
nex to the Hilo hospital
came up again through a
letter recoived by Prosident Smith
from Mr. Elliott, secretaiy of the
.committee in charge of tho same.
Mr. Elliott could give no definite
information bb to how they pro
posed to run tho Victoria wards
after building thorn. Tho Board
finally decided that the building
must be absolutely under the con
trol of tho Board. There would
be no objection to adopting regu
lations concerning it, such as that
tho patients should bo only of tho
Anglo-Saxon race and that they
might be at liberty to have tho
attendance of their own physician
at their expense, and, at tho sug
gestion of Prosident Smith, Dr.
Wood agreed to formulate a set
of regulations on the lines govern
ing private patients received in
the Queen's hospital.
A lettor from one of the lepers
at the settlement conveyed tho in
formation that one of the officials
in tho employ of the Board had
been guilty of the heinous offense
of catching flying fish and selling
them at 25 cents each. He want
ed a chance tobuy fish at a
Agent Reynolds reported that
the quarantine on the EinaiMaru's
people was at an end. With
the exception of the two cases in
the hospital the others had been
Bout away from the station. Drs.
Emerson and Wood reported that
tho patients were well and need
be detained no longer. Mr. Rey
nolds was accordingly notified to
send them away today .
Mr. Reynolds then presented
the bills for expenses incurred on
account of the Einai Mam's pas

had exacted from the captain and
agent of the steamor what was
known as a bottomry bond. This
had been signed in addition by
the immigration companies' agents
and others. The bona, naa al
ready been sent to Japan for col
lection and he had no doubt it
would be paid. It was for $8000.
It was impossible to pay these
bills out of the appropriation for
quarantine expenses at tho dis
position of the Board, for there
remained only a little over
$2000 of tho amount to
last another seven months. He
would suggest that tho Board
join in a resolution to the Presi
dent asking that the Ooancil of
State be called together to pass
a special appropriation covering
the amount of these bills, which
must bo paid. Tbo regular appro

Attoruoy General said tho full

with many others in the colonies,

This vessel was wreoked on the

consolatory to Hawaii is made:

the opinion that the sugar-growers
of these islands have had the
benefit of nearly $10,000,000 a
year, and thought that was too
much. The committee, howevor,
will recommend that 'something
bo done.' While the members
opposo again giving to Hawaiiaus
all tho benefits they have enjsyod
for twenty-five years, they aro in
favor of doing something for
them. It will bo left to the Senate
to decido what that something
