that Kamalu failed to como after

President Smith said he bad

stating that for tho period be
tween May 13 and Juno 8 thoro
had been but G cases of smallpox
and 1 death. Tho epidemic might
bo considered at an end in Japan,
with tho solo exception of tho
kan of Nagasaki whore it was still
prevalent, lie particularly wisn
ed to impress on tho Board the
possibility of an opidomio of tho
bubonio plague in Japan. An
undoubted case had boon reported
at Nagasaki on Juuo 4, tho victim
being a Jopaneno woman recently
arrived from Formosa. Sho died
the samo day and strouuous pre
cautions had beou obperved in
handling tho case by tho Japaneso
authorities. Up to tho hour of
his writing no other cases had
bcou reported, but ho was fearful
that somo would bo and took tho
earliest opportunity of putting tho

Dr. Wood said if thoy were'
multiplied by five, they would be
nearer correct. It was fortunate
for the Board that Dr. Day was
in Hongkong where ho could see
cases of tho plague and gain ex
perience in its treatmout that
might be useful horo.
President Smith said ho had ro
ceived a lettor from Dr. Day, in
which he stated he had reached
Yokohama two days ahead of
schedulo time. Dr. Eldrcdge had
waited on him immediately on his
arrival and had assisted him in
every way, particularly in tho mat
tor of passports. Goro Narita,
formerly attached to the Honolulu
legation, had also paid him much
attention, ho believed under the
orders of ouo of tho govornmont

Dr. Howard making his "appear
an co beforo tho Board, President
Smith stated that ho had asked
him to come before tho Board and
expluin his requisition for 10 tins
of opium this month.
Dr.Howard said he had not per
sonally mado the requisition. It
had been dono to save troublo at
the Custom House. In answer to
questions by tho Board tho doctor
went on to state that ho used d to
5 tins a month in supplying tho
patients at tho government dis
pensary. jj.0 uaa y& patients on
the liBt who now received an aver
age of 20 grains daily. There wob
a good deal of waste in measuring
out the stuff. Ho kept it locked
up in a secure place and no ono
but himself had access to it or
handled it. He had no secure
placo in which to keep ton tins.
Ono of tho members of tho
Board with a turn for arithmetic
said he had figured up the number
of doses as stated and tho con
sumption should be only half an
ounco n day. Dr. Howard ox
plained that a half pound tin only
yiolded about 5 ouncos when
weighed out in small doses.
President Smith said be had
looked into tho matter and found
that tho requisitions for tho lust
niuo mouths called for -12 tine of
opium. Wlioro had it all gouo
to? Ho did not want tho impres
sion to go abroad that tho govern
ment dispensary was being turned
into an opium joint. White it

said to have bcoueo brutally beat
on iu a Japane'P l:mifi on Hotel
street on Wednesday that his life
is debpnited bF, underwent the
difficult opeiation of trepanning
yostorday afternoon. Tho operat

was assisted by sevouil othor Jap
anese physicians. Dr. Emerson,
tho police surgeon, was present by
roqnest but took no part in tho
operation. While tho operoHou
was successfully porformed and
tho pressure on tho brain relieved,
tho oxpocted favorublo results
have not followed. The man still
lies iu a somi - conscious state
and his condition nt rioou
today was such that it wsik.
hardly expected he would live
Tho Japaneso aro very much
worked up over what thoy claim
to bo an unprovoked assault on au
iuoffonsivo man and have retained
Hon. Paul Neumann to prosecute
tho two bluejackets now under
arrost for the crime.
In tho mean timo tho polico have
not been idle. It appears that at
the timo of tho assault it was sup
posed that the Bailors woro quar
reling among thomsolvos in the
houso and the polico took them
out and tried to get them to go off.
Nothing was said about anyono be
ing hurt and it is probablo tho iu
matoskuew nothing of it untilafter
wards. Detective Kaapa happen
ed to bo close by when tho row
occurred and on making for the
houso found the two sailors in the
hands of tho police and the Japa
neso lying on tne siuowau; m
sousible. He at onco ordered the
men takon to tho polico station
and held for investigation, and
thou had tho Japaneso attended
When he was found to be in the
dangerous condition that ho now
is, Kaapa at onco went to work ou
tho case and examined everybody
counocted with it, but found
nothing that would throw any
light on tho affair uutil a few
hours ago, when ho como across
a uativo boy whoso story puts a
i somewhat different light on the
affair. This boy
says no was
passing in front of
tho houso and
saw throo bluejackets in tho pus
sago way struggling to got past u
Japanese. The Jap Btood in the
doorway with hiB arms braced
against tho posts -white tho others
seemed to bo trying to got by him.
Suddenly, tho boy says, tho Jap
came flying head ovor heols over
tho sidowalk, his head striking tho
stono curbing. Tho boy said he
