Honey to Come From Emergency Fund Fil
tration or City Water Urged -A Strong
Suggestion for Cemet'ry Space.
In the morning of yesterday the
Cabinet mndo a toIo recommending to
the Board ot Health that a sanitary
commission on Chinatown bo appoint
ed. In the nftornoon tho Health Board
held n meeting and a resolution creat
ing such n commission was adopted.
There are to bo thrco members a
Military engineer, an architect and a
business man. Detailed Instructions
or plans tor tho commission' are yet to
bo formulated, but tho understanding
Is thnt a thorough Investigation will
lio madennd that suggestions for ac
tion by the Board of Health will be
submitted. Onb namo for commission
membership was mentioned. This was
that of Mr. Kdwards, sanitary engin
eer representing hcros at this time Mr.
Hcrlng, who planned tho city's sewcr
It was decided by the Board of
Health to request tho President, to
rail the Council of State together again
at an early day and place beforo that
body the proposal to make an extraor
dinary appropriation of $100,000 to bo
expended in changing the appearance
of Chinatown and bettering its sani
tary condition. Tho principal altera
tions believed to bo demanded without
delay are shown on the map by Judge
Cooper and thus described: Extend
Chaplain Lane, which now ends at
Nuuanu street, beginning at Fort, on
through to tho stream; carry Kekau
lllte street on to Bcrctanln; carry Mau
nakca on to Kukul;' carry Smith (Ko
nla) on to Kukul; cut n now street
through tho Kamaukaplll church block
from Nuuanu street to tho stream. It
Is calculated that tho expenso of mak
ing the street changes will bo very
heavy. One of tho ministers said yes
terday that ho stood ready to voto
$200,000 of emergency fund for tbo
purpose If that amount was required.
Many of tho changes relating to build
ings, drainage, etc1., must bo mndo ut
the expense ot property holders. It is
expected that the membership of the
extraordinary commission will bo an
nounced at an early date.
It was Dr. C. B. Wood who revived
the matter of providing for tho filtra
tion ot both tho Nuuanu valley and
Maklkt water used for domestic pur
pose's. Plans nnd specifications aro in
storage with the government for these
Improvements and will be hunted up at
once. Thero was somo further talk at
the Board meeting on n garbago cre
matory and disposal of garbage, but
no decisive action was taken.
There was a remark by one of tho
ofllcers of tho Board at tho meeting
that plans for now cemetery spaco
seemed to liavo been lost sight ot en
tirely. Thero wcro two responses.
One was that Uie Board now had a
crematory furnace on Quarantine Isl
and that could bo used when required.
' Tho other answer was from a member
ot tho Board who has a beautiful homo
In Makikl. Ho said that Ills dog should
be quite familiar by this tlmo 'with
tho anatomy ot tho human frame, as
tho animal had from tlmo to time
brought homo, supposedly from Ma
lcikl cemetery, about all the boncsithat
go to mnko up a skeleton.

FOR THE USE OF SALT WATER
Chief Hunt, of the Honolulu Flro
Department, Is ono ot tho mon believ
ing that thero would bo economy In
tho uso In and about Honolulu of somo
of the all sufficient supply of salt wa
ter available. Ho belloves that It
would.be entirely practical and wholly
satisfactory to havo a distributing sys
tem, securing water by pumping from
the harbor or some' convenient point.
Salt water, the chief points out, could
bo used for bathing, flushing 'sewers
and connections and for fires.- Tho uso
ot salt water for fires is accepted in
many seaboard cities for tho reason
that it is, in fighting flames four or
flvo times more effective than fresh
water. Thero are other citizens who
agree with Chief Hunt's views on the
uses ot salt water. Nono of theso gen
tlemen aro prepared to urge tho Invest
ment ot municipal funds in a distribut
ing system, but are of tbo opinion that
a plan to handle tho project as a pri
vate enterprise will in all likelihood
materialize at no very distant day.
Tho use of salt water for street sprink
ling has been shown to havo many de
cided advantages. The dust is "laid"
botter, thero Is. not so much mud and
not nearly so much water is required.
What " P. G." Means.
"Seo. any soldiers in Houghtallng's
place?" asked Marshal Brown ot n
witness In the liquor selling case.
"What kind of soldiers?"
"Thero is no more Provisional Gov
ernmentyou mean soldiers of tho Re
public of Hawaii?"
"Yes; I guess so."
Judge Wilcox (interposing) Yes;
soldiers ot the Present Government,
not ot tho Past Government. Tho
Initials answer for more than ono pur
pose." Plague or no plague, people
are bound to celebrate Xmas.
The season of present-giving
and receiving is on us. If you
have not already done so, let a
picture be at least one of the
presents you .make this year.
