At yostordny's session of the
Board of Hoalth thoro wore pro
Bent Attorney-Goueral Smith, pre.
Biding; Drs. Emerson and Wood,
T. F. Lansing, O. A Brown nnd
D. Eoliipio, ruombors, Executive
Officer Reynolds, Secretary Wil
cox aud Drs. Mousarrat nnd Al
varez. After tho reading of tho minutes
of last meeting tho Attorney-General
"Before proceeding to dispose
of tho two weeks' business boforo
us, I wish to make official notifi
cation of tho death of B.W. Meyer
nnd to plnco on record 'my per
sonal appreciation of his untiring
and faithful sorvico to tho Board
of Health. In his death not only
has the Board lost a valued serv
ant but the country at largo. It
is now more than 35 years since
this government first began to take
hold of the leprosy question and
from tho very incoption of the
movement Mr. Meyer has been
identified with it. Difficult ques
tions have been mot and solved in
this long period of time and others
are yet to come, but simpler and
easier of solution now perhaps
than in the past I have been
personally associated with Mr.
Meyer in these nnd other matters
pertaining to tho Board of Health
for nearly thirty years, since I
was a member of the Kauai board.
In all that time I can say that no
one has been more faithful.honest.
untiring or has givon more thought
to tue subjeot tuan Mr. Meyer.
He is gone now and we can do no
more than express our great ap
preciation of his valuable services
and our sympathy for bis family.
It is true there have been in
stances of fault-finding but no
man is perfeot and we Know that
no ope could havo been more cor
rect in his work. I desire again
personally to record my high ap
preciation of his services to this
board, services which as nearly as
we can ascertain have extended
over a period of some 33 years.
He has been identified with the
Leper Settlement since 1870, but
I believe he was made an agent of
tne board as early ob ib04. Tnere
are few if any public officials in
the history of the country who
come up to him iu point of con
tinuous Borvioe, Marshal Parke's
thirty years in offico being the
Dr. Emerson I desiro to add
my testimony to what has been
ably said of tho valuo of Mr.
Meyor's long services. His death
is not only a loss to tho people of
tho settlement and to the Board
but moro especially to tho island
of Molokai. I wish to offer the
following resolutions for tho con
sideration of tho Board:
AVhorens It haB pleased Al
mighty God to romovo by death
Mr. It. W. Moyor, a faithful and
honest officer of tho Board of
Resolvod Thnt in tho death of
Mr. Meyer, tho Board has suffered
great loss, and tho public a ser
vant who has romlered it sorvico
of ini'stiiniiblo valuo. Thnt tho
momboru of tho Board horoby do
niro to testify thoir high cstoem
of lua merit nud to toudor their
sympathy to tho widow nnd mom
born of tho family of tho dooonsed
iu thoir borunvomout.
Thnt thouo resolutions bo spreml
upon tint roconls of tho Hoard,
nud u copy of tho Hnmo soul to tho
family of tho docoasod,
Mr. l.iiiiHiiiKiii seconding tho
adoption of tliu resolutions 1 can
Hiiy porHotmlly that 1 heartily on
dorsu what has boon wild by tho
Mr. Brown 1 luiwi nrolmhlv
known Mr, Moyurnwro intimately
in iirivntn Ufa limn any member
of tliu board, Otliura linvo loati
tied to his publio worth nnd I feel
it due to him to add a fow words
asto his private life. It was cor
tninly a remnrknblo one romark
nblo in tho way ho brought up and
kept together soon a largo family.
His strict boubo of justico scorned
to actuate his whole lifo. No
member of his family was requir
ed to do anything without receiv
ing the exnet equivalent of his or
her work. Every member of it
had a trocjo and worked at it for
the general good. It iB a pity
thoro are not moro families liko it,
In putting tho question presi
dent Smith said it was a source of
gratification to him that all tho
raiso of Mr. Meyer had not beon
oft until after his death. Ho had
rdpeatodly beon tho rboipionl of it
in life, not only from tho Board
but from others.
The resolutions thou passed
Dr. Monsartat's roports from
the slaughtor house for two weeks
were road and filed.
A joint report from Drs.Monsar
rat and Shaw on dairy cows ex
amined for tuberculosis showed
CI cattle had beon tagged during
tho provious two weeks. Of thoso
39 had been tested and 18 con
demncd and killed. Twolvo had
not been tested owing to thou
tomperaturo but were segregated.

The Board of Medical Exaniiu
ers reported favorably on tho ap-
filication of Dr. A. Sinclair for a
iconso to proviso medicine and
on motion the same was granted.
Mr. Ahlo of Haualei, Kauai,
petitioned tho Board for leavo to
set apart a Chinese cemetery on
land belonging to him, and, for
Eermission to remove thereto the
odies of such Ohinose as were
buried at Hanalei.
The Board did not like the idea
oE establishing private cemotories
at will and referred tho matter to
Sheriff Garter for further particu
lars as to location and extent of
Two convicts who havo been
confined in tho jail of the Lepor
Settlement since September 28,
1894, petitioned for pardon, stat
ing that "on their sacred honor"
they would nover offend again.
Mr. Boynolds said tho mon
were both hard cases and had
been concerned iu various rob
beries, cattle stealing, and burn
ings previous to thoir conviction.
They were supposed also to have
broken into tho store on several
occasions. The men had not yet
served half of their sentences.
Attorney General Smith said
tho meting out of justico to
criminals at the Settlement was
ono of the matters that the gov
ernment had under consideration.
The present system was faulty
and objectionable in that it de
nied prisoners the right of appeal.
It was probable tho government
would ask tho next, Legislature to
act on the matter. In the mean
time tho present petition would
bo taken into consideration.
G. K. Ahai, recently appointed
deputy Bhoriff at Hanalei, was ap
pointed agent of tho Board for

"Elliot's principal suggestion was

The Attorney - Gonoral thon
gave tho Board an account of his
visit to Hilo, saying tho new hos
pital building was approaching
completion. It was much
lniger than ho supposed
to have beon possiblo for tho
contract price S'2500. As far aB ho
could judgo tliu building would be
a substantial one. With regard

much crowded last niylii. Boar
Admiral Beanit-lee, Conmmiulor
in Chief of the Pacific Squadron,
Captain Cotton and officers of tho
flagship, gave a reception to tho
people of Honolulu, for the pur
poso of meeting H. M. Sowall, tho
now Minister of the United Statos,
and Mrs. Sowall. And tho peoplo
came, several hundred of them.

Admiral Beardsleo, Captain'
Cotton, Lieutenant Stoney and
Minister and Mrs. Cooper received
tho guests aud presontod
them to Minister and Mrs.
Sowall. The recoption party
dissolved, however, within three
quarters of an hour, so that
people arriving a little Into oithor
presented themselves or had
friends perform tho office. Mrs.
Sowall, it was learned with general
regret, was not feeling quito well.
Dancing began early but pro
ceeded with a little difficulty
owing to the crush. Excellent
music fur tho purpose was fur
nished by the flagship's band, also -delightful
botween the dances.
Decorations were elaborate and
of great beauty. Tho gangway
was draped with flags and arched
with colored electric lights. Upon
a crescent screen, facing tho
quarter deck, the Hawai
ian salutation, "Aloha" glowed
in incandescent bulbs. ;There
woro cosy alcoves of flags along
tho bulwarks on the port Bide, and
pavilions of similar material form
ed resting places on the quarter
dock. Near the companion way
was an armory, its floors strewn
with ferns and flowers, tho center
piece of which was a rapid fire
field piece, about which were dis
posed stands of arms, old-fashioned
swords, and pistols, etc. Bunt
ing screens and festoons depend
ed on all hands from the upper
works. Perhaps most admired of
all the compositions was a rockery,
containing a profuse display
of calla lilies, variegated leaves,
fernB, etc., a lively fountain play
ing in the center. The decorating
committee, that did itself so proud r
consisted of Lieutenant Com
mandor Ingorsoll, Dr. Hcssler and
Bofreshments wero served at
