Case o!,n Native Woman.
There has been another death by
bubonic plague, making a total of four
victims of tho so-called epidemic. This
Is tho sixth "suspicious death." Of t.ho
first five, threo cases were pronounced
plague. The other two were said to bo
in doubt and Dr. Hoffman, tho bacteri
ologist of tho Board of Health and the
supposed and accredited final author
ity, In his report soon to bo submitted,
will not say that these two cases In
question wero plague.
Reports of the latest case wero sent
In last evening from Nuuanu street,
between Hotel and Kink, the building
being on tho Ahl premises. A native
Hawaiian woman was found to bo dy
, lng and soon passed away, having, the
physicians say, all the symptoms and
manifestations of the bubonic plague.
An autopsy was held and tho remains
were cremated at the Honolulu Iron
Works. It is stated that tho woman,
who was known as Maria, was the wife
of a Chinese who died earlier in tho
week and who was reported aa one of
'the suspicious cases. She had been 111
'ten days or longer, without attendance
and since Tuesday had succeeded in
keeping herself hidden from the in
spectors. Food fop thejsolatcd.
Through the efforts of Capt W. G.
Ashley and tho co-operation of Judge
W. L. WUcox and others, an ample
ntrd steady and certain supply of food
for all the people hold within tho town
quarantine limits Is now assured.
Everything possible was done from the
first to furnish meals, but Iti tho early
movements there was contusion and
some delay and misunderstanding. A
number of tno ladles of tho Hawaiian
Relief Association volunteered to as
sist. The arrangements aro now that
persons in the tabu territory may pass
interior lines during certain hours to
visit eating places and that distribu
tions of food will bo made by tho
Board authorities or employes at stat
ed times dally. Judge Wilcox presid

Inspectors In Consultation,
Nearly every man in chargo of a dis
trict was on hand for tho congress of
inspectors convened at tho Board of
Health offices yesterday afternoon.
Judgo Cooper presided and called for
reports and suggestions. There was
not a great deal of variation in tho na
ture of the returns. That Chinatown
and tho Japanese' had been found to
have many frightfully filthy spota be
came an accepted fact as man after
man told of investigations and finds.
Each inspector was for radical meas
ures in tho uso of disinfectants and a
"number suggested fire as a purifier.
Tho work of cleaning and keeping
track of tho pcoplo will go on with
somo modifications based on experi
ence. A number of valuable hints
wero offered by Inspectors and somo
of their recommendations were adopt
ed. A Pla&ric Years Ago.
"Thcro nro other than tho present
day generals who havo handled cpl
domtcs In Hawaii," remarked a kn
maalna this morning. "It wasin 1881
that wo had small pox here to' tho ex
tent that the wholo town was In quar
antine. There were errs everywhere.
David Dayton was agent for tho Board
of Health and the late H. A. P. Carter,
by vlrtuo of being Minister of tho In
terior, was at tho head of sanitation,
etc. About twenty-flvo cases wero
found tho very first day. Mr. Dayton
took hold at onco and tho way things
moved was a caution, His regular or
ganization was a couplo of men and n
slnglo cart. Very soon tho forco was
raised to COO men and a sufficient
number of wagons. Thcro was gen
eral cleaning up the samo as In 1895
and tho samo as Is In progress now.
It was eight months beforo tho dis
caso was entirely wiped out, for small
pox is tenacious and much has been
learned of It slnco 1881. Buildings
wero erected on Quarantine Island and
at ono time thcro wero 1,800 pcoplo
out there. Of courso not nil of them
had tho disease, for thoso who had
been exposed were Isolated as well as
tho cases. Ono thing I remember Is
that there was a good deal of joking
about the finances of tho work. Money
was needed nnd there was not tlmo to
get It through tho usual channels.
Minister Carter had funds and allowed
Mr. Dayton to draw up to about $40,000
simply on I O U's, much to tho an
noyanco of tho agent. It was some
weeks before thero was a settlement,
but you may bo suro that a voucher
was furnished for every expenditure.
Tlicriiavo been epidemics In other

On tho 14th of Dcccmbor, 1893, six
years ago, tho United States revenue
cutter Corwln, famous for Its trip Into
tho Arctic regions, reached Honolulu
from San Francisco with special and
very private dispatches to Albert S.
Willis, wno had become American
Minister hero after Paramount Blount
had hauled down the Stars and Stripes
and performed a few other details of
his historical mission to Hawaii. Even
beforo the Corwln came to anchor off
Brewer's wharfthcro were "strong ru
mors of the restoration of Lllluoka
lanl." This was the first tremor of
the situation which had its culmina
tion in the demand of Minister Willis
that President Dolo and associates step
down and out. Thcso were tho "dark
days of 1893" and there was much un
certainty and the gravest speculation
over tho final outcome when Mr. Dolo
and his associates declined most posi
tively to step down and out. People
who were hero at tho tlmo can never
forget the tenseness of the situation,
for it was thought that tho American
Minister would take recourse to armed
force at his disposal to enforce his de
mand. Tho cruiser Philadelphia was
In port and preparations were made to
land her men under the orders of tho
Minister, but happily,, this .was not
done. The Executlvo "Building was
fortified and everything was mado In
readiness to resit a movement which
was believed to be unjust and unwar
ranted. Plague In New York.
Now York, Dec 3. Four steamships

Doty and aro free from further quar

NEARLY HALF A CENTURY
Capt. Harry English, Was One of (he
Old-Timers of These Islands.
Sailed Out ol Honolulu Port lo the South Seas-"
Member of a, local lodjja JForf y-One Years
- A Master Mariner From Dublin.
Capt. Harry English, who died yes
terday morning nnd whoso funeral was
held from tho Masonic Tcmplo in tho
afternoon, had been In nnd about Ha
waii for nearly half a century, If not
qulto that period nnd was Indeed well
known to nil the old timers. Clins. B.
Wilson know tho eld captain in tho
South Seas when tho sturdy ex-marshal
of tho Islands was a boy. Tho
captain wns a trader In wnrmcr Poly
nesia and did well with a schooner."
At ono tlmo ho had an Interest In
Fnnnlng's Island and through most of
his life held that his title was good
In equity but that ho was not enough
of a business , man to look properly
after what should havo mado him a
Dublin, Ireland, wns the birthplace
of Capt. English, who was 77 at tho
tlmo of his death and had been a mas
ter mariner from about his thirtieth
birthday. Ho sailed out of this port
at one tlmo to other Islands of the
group nnd to the south for the late
James I. Dowsett. The captain was
always regarded as a steady, rellablo
man, ablo to meet nny emergency that
might arlso at sen. Ho was an expert
navigator and had a most thorough
practical knowledgo of all necessary to
the successful handling of n sailing
vessel. Ho served his time ns well on
lntcr-Island steamers here In tho pio
neer dnys of tho Wlldcrs and others.
"It was old Captain Harry English
when I was a boy," said Judgo Wilcox
this morning. "Ho was a worthy man
and everybody liked him. Ho always
seemed tho samo to me, but ago deals
gently with such rugged constitutions
ns lie had and he took pretty good caro
of himself." Mr. J. O. Carter said that
his recollection of Capt. English ran
back for a great many years, but that
ho thought tho published statement of I
tho ago of the deceased being above
eighty, was an error.
"I know Capt. Harry for over twenty
years, I guess," said K. B. G. Wallace
at tho Wilder Steamship Company
offices, "but you must go to some older
man to get any details of his life. I
can tell you that ho was a member of
Hawaiian Lodge, No. 21, Masons, for
forty-ono years. He was known as a
good man nnd a mariner of excellent
capability. Thcro wero threo sons and
a daughter. Ono son Is Capt 'Bob'
English, pilot at tho port of Kahulul,
another is a blacksmith at Walalua
and a third is a blind man who lives
In Llllha street."
Said C61. W. F. Allen: "My ac
quaintance with the lato Capt. English
antes back to tho year 1858. Ho was
down on tho water front for the last
dozen or so years as watchman for tho
Wilder Steamship Company at their
wharves and coal piles. Ho was a man
of strong character and admlrablo
traits. I do not suppose that his life
was at all free from such adventure as
falls to tho lot of a man who cruises
In the South Seas with a small schoon
er, but he was not given to talking of
what ho might' havo encountered In
the way of peril or suffering. Capt
Harry, as a member of Hawaiian Lodge
No. 21, was ono of tho oldest Ma
sons here. He belonged to the veteran
group of S. C. Allen, Dr. McKlbben and
myself, wo all having taken our de
gree hero about the same time."
Capt. Penhallow. of the schooner
Alice Cooke, Is another who was an
old friend of tho late Capt English.
who was a general favorite and was
especially well liked among sea-faring
people. Ho had preceded his son as
pilot at Kahulul during tho tlmo Col.
W. F. Allen was collector general of
customs for the Islands.
