Shadow Is Pausing.
The shadow of tho Black Plague vi

Thero havo been Issued many mis
statements concerning tho substance.
Says Judge Cooper, President of the
Hoard of Hralth:
aJUiThcro havo been three case3 so far

suspicious cases havo been cremated
nnd l&ls likely thnt other bodies will
go to tho furnace. It may bo said thnt
tho situation 13 well In hand. Doth
physicians nnd laymen havo been
piompt In volunteering for servlco of
any sort. Tho wholo body of tho pop
ulation, regardless of nationality, i
may remark, has responded nobly.
Thero has been n complete awakening
to the necessity for n general cleaning
up. In many cases tho Inspectors find
that premises reported to havo been
thoroughly cleaned nnd disinfected bo
fore orders from tho Board had been
received. Tho spirit shown on nil
sides Is to be heartily commended."
It Is believed that tho town will get
back to Its normal condition In about
a week. VIgilanco will not bo relaxed
In any particular till tho period of in
cubation seven days hns elapsed.
The drug stores of the city aro do

Ho said that rats would be better for

Tho hundreds of peoplo who visited

Home Without Alcnls,
"Wt.at is homo without a break

At n .io,..ilne houso on Vineyard

Half n dozen of tho best known Chin

that it will rcqulro most careful man

required each week hero 200 beeves.
Thcro has been counted In on this

Goo Kim and Chinese.
Mr, Goo Kim, vlco consul for China,
was an early caller at tho olllces of tho
uoard of Health. Ho secured a num
ber of passes, but readily acquiesced in
several cases in which pormlts to tra
vel about town wero refused. Mr. Goo
Kim said that tho Chlneso all well un
derstood, from their exporienco with
cholera In 1895, that it was necessary
to uso disinfectants about premises,
living rooms, outhouses, etc., and to
thoroughly clean up ovorywhoro at
their homes and places of business.
Tho vlco consul said that tho cntlro
Chlneso colony would act willingly
wltn tho Board of Health In working
for sanitary conditions and that tho
officials would adviso nil who called for
consultation to carry out to tho small
est detail tho provisions of tho notices
which had been posted. From Mr. Goo
Kim It was learned that tho caso of
Wing Wo Tal'a" bookkeeper, who was
tho llrst victim of tho visitation, had
been at onco pronounced black plague
by tho Chlneso doctor In nttendancc.
This physician had tho experience of
ono year In a Hongkbng hospital nnd
was for somo tlmo In general practice
In tho colony nnd had seen hundreds
of cases of tho plague.
Marshal Blown, who had planned to
leave on Tuesday for nn official visit to
Maul and Hawaii, hns postponed that
trip indefinitely nnd will remain hero
until the plague has disappeared, Tho
Marshal has mado n number of calls
nt tho Board of Health offices, but for
tho most of tho time is nt tho station.
Ho Is working with tho Board and has
given tho necessary Instructions to nil
his officers to assist In maintaining
Isolation nnd to report at onco any and
