Tho government act3 wisely In or
dering the band to play on.
Notwithstanding our cosmupol.tnn
population. It has never been found
wanting when It conies to a alula lll.c
tho present one.
Hcductlou of the cattle ranches and
tho Increased demand for meats Indi
cates that there aio other methods for
good Investments besides watching
sticks v.. cano grow.
Tho action of tho Chamber o Com
merce Is an ex pi ess I on of sentiment
that epitomizes the opinion of tho gen
eral public In Its unanimous support
of the odlclnl authoiltlcs.
Tho plague bltuatlon Is serious
enough as It is, but dont' make It
worse by cliculatlng yams, which
many will accept as posalMo tiuths,
and accomplish nothing but gioss ox
nggeintlon and Increased fear.
Tho emergency crematory can, with
tho expenditure of a llttlo more money,
bo made n permanent affair. Public
sentiment will endorso tho expenditure
of additional money to establish n
properly equipped Institution for In
cineration. Although tho Klnau did get away,
tho chances aro that her cargo will
either bo loft on Cocoauut Island or
brought bacK to Honolulu. It Cocoa
nut Island Is used It Is likely tho squat
ter will vamoose without further oV
ders from tho government.
Tho Iioslon Herald in its advice to
Congress is good enough to say: "Tho
fixing of a form of government for
Hawaii has already been too long do
la od." If all those who fought to de
feat annexation will come into line on
this basis, wo will be mno of bright
What BinaM farmers thcro uio In
Hawaii will do well to note that
fannois of tho great coin dlstrktH lliul
their Incomes Increased by turning tho
corn Into bef. The. e aru fow districts
in tho islands wheru corn will not
grow to ndvantage, and theio Is no
question of thero bulug good money In
cattle nt tho present market prices.
.Material progress Is nil light and the
public likes to see things moving when
tho move Is an expression of pt ogress.
We have yet to soo good reason for
tho mutilation of beautiful shade trees
to nidko way 'for tho van guard. Tho
beauty of trees on King Btrcet has been
marred in order to mako way for u
moving house, and whllo It Is useless
to cry over spilled mlllc, the public
suggests that it ought not to happen
again. Trim Iho houso next time.
It Is to 'bo hoped that in tho future
tho Advertiser wla keep its promise
regarding sensational icports of tho
pluguo situation. This morning it pub
lishes a list of flvo deaths to date. As
a matter of fact up to 10 o'clock this
foicnoon thero hnd boon three cases
of the plague and tlueo deaths. The
chances aro that every sudden death
will be currently icpoited as black
plaguo and It behooves those Interest
ed In stating facts to place no cro
denco in minors.
'most- who plato tho iespouslbIUy
for fao-called Hawaiian Hinges nt va
l Ions expositions upon tho government
or business men, spenk without duo
appreciation of facts. Every exhibit
sent out by" tho Government or tho
business men has been fieo from any
connection with tho sideshows of tho
midway and withal u very commend
ablo show of Hawaii's Industry, prog
ress and Its people as they nre. If tho
managers (of the. fcldo shows enlist tal
ent for "Hawaiian villages" with hulas
ami vailous characteristics never
known to' Hawaiian custom, neither
the government nor tho pcoplo should
bo held responsible for misrepresentations.
PROM A BUSINESS STAND
Minister Cooper seems likely to fall
in with criticism from thoughtless
ones for pnfoicing tho strict quaran
tine In business districts and practi
cally stopping all tinlllc In portions of
tho town xvltcro Interference with trade
means heavy financial loss particularly
In tho midst of tho Chtlstmas season.
Sober thought, however, must con
Vlnco the people that from n commer
cial standpoint iilono tho situation de
mands positives action.
The moro appeaintice of the bubonic
pluguo In Honolulu will mean serious
Interference with tuuilbt trndo and
consequent financial loss to tho coun
try. Should tho discaso become a se
rious epidemic the oxtcnt of i.ie finan
cial loss would be hard to estimate.
'1 hero Is evei y reason to lako a hope
ful view of tho situation, thanks to
prompt action and the strlit measures
to guard against any further spread of
the disease. This ndvanlngo gained,
the authorities or tho pcoplo cannot
afford to foicgo by letting up on strict
regulations stilctly enforced. No
chances inn he tdken. llntll every
vestige of the plaguo has been stamp
ed out tho nilcs must bo enforced.
Such n low Is prompted by ordinary
business Instinct. What losses may be
occasioned by tho present flurry can be
more than made tip by successful work
In preventing further progress of tho
Steam Launch for
Mannalei Plantain n
Tho ship l'oi t Ccorgo nrilved In poit
December 10, with a general cnigo of
1,000 tons, this being tho largest cargo
ccr brought Into Honolulu by a salt
ing vessel from San Francisco.
Thero nro llfty-soven carloads of ma
chinery on board, nil of it having been
bi ought pctlanlto Snn Francisco
from Philadelphia. The decks of tho
vessel havo on both sides halves of
huge vacuum pans, each half weighing
about eleven ttjns; theso nro for the
Ewa plantation. Tho Tort George, al
though docked nt tho Pacific Mail dock,
will bo compelled to keep these on
board until sho takes n berth at the
Kallrond wharf, na there arc no ti licit s
In town large enough to handle them.
Thero they will bo loaded on a flat car.
Tho mobt Interesting portion of tho
ship's cargo, however, Is a steam
launch carried on tho utai board deck.
This llttlo vessel Is consigned to dear,
Lansing & Co., and Is to bo used at the
inunalel plantation for tho transpor
tation of mall, p.ussengcia, otc, lio
twecn Lnhalnn and tho plantation. It
was launched Tuesday by Captain
Morse of the Eort George and her ma
chinery placed In position; she Is n
beautiful little vescl cnpablu of at
taining a sjiccd uf from 12 to 14 knots
an hour. Her dimensions nro ns fal
lows: 15 feet water line, 10 feet C
Inches bonm li feet 3 Inches depth of
hold, nntl was built by George Hos3
of San Francisco.
Tho Fort Gcorgo also brought 3,320
bariuls of cement, 160 tons of sand and
311.000 bilcks for the t'nlted States
Government woik here.
Cnpt. O. C. Jlorso lit command of
the I'oit Georgo has been coming Into
this port on unions voeuols for tho
past twelve years.
How the Kllolmna Was Lout.
Wnlluku, Maul. Dec. 11. Tho oozy
little steamer KHuhann. Capt. Nichol
son, belonging to tho Intor-Ialand S.
S. Co.'s line, ran ashore at Puuplha
about a quarter of a mllo from Enhnlnn
harbor nt a quarter past 12 o'clock
Sunday moinlng, Dec. 10th. and Is ctlll
nshoro nt this writing, and tho cnptaln
and ofllccis and men have been o;i-
stantly ut woik tiylng to flout her
Tho vessel rnn nshoro on tho edge
of tho breakers nt a distance of about
two or three bundled yauls from tlw
shore, and Lnhalnn seafaring men and
other critics nro wondering why the
captain brought his vessel ho close on
to the brcakois ns ho did. It Is cur
rently reported, however, that tho
captain had turned In when tho acci
dent happened and tho first olllccr was
on the bridge when tho Kllohana
struck head on tho coral leef.
JIr. McCann, of tho Lahainn saloon
was about tho first to sco tho v esscl In
her unfortuuato position.
Ou Sundny Deputy Sheriff Haysol
den offered his assistance to tho cap
tain, but his services wcro not inquir
ed. During Sunday, 5,000 flro bricks
por tho Pioneer Mill Co., Eahalna, and
fcovornl tons of coal Intended for tho
mill wero Jettisoned in order to light
en tho vessel. The weather was lino
and smooth till day yesterday and tho
llttlo vessel did not loll very heavily.
It was on nccount of this favorable
tondltlon of tho weather that the Kl
lohnna did not go to pieces yesterday.
Today tho suif Is somewhat llslng,
and If n Komi sets In, thero is fear that
tho 111 fated steamer will become a
