HOOD RIIJDANDI- TO HAD Kllli
Few citizens of Honolulu wcro there
yesterday who did not hall with satis
faction tho news that three of tho
miserable shacks of Chinatown had
been consigned to tho flames. Tho
shock of tho manifestation of the
plapjuo In its most deadly form was In
a measiiro lessened by tho" knowledRO
that at least one sourcu of danger Is
wiped out never to appear again pi o
vldeil the Department of Public Works
does Its duty.
At Inst the people of Honolulu liao
come solidly and without reserve to
tho support of the lloaid of Health and
the olce of petty criticism Is stilled
by a situation that brlng3 every man
to his feet icady for action and ready
to support action. That tho Hoard In
ready to att and carry on it vigorous
campaign, prepared to spare no effort,
prepared to 1 emovc the peoplo to moro

torch to habitations not habitable was
evidenced by tho vlgoious and com
mendable work of Saturday which w'll
be continued till the last vestige of
"Chlucsc shacks" with their attendnnt
evils is removed from the town.
Let the good work go on. It Is no
longer n question of damages or Iosj
to the property holdcrn. Tho busluesj
community can better afford to pay for
tho construction of healthful barraeka
to accommodnto every man, woman
and child In Chinatown, better afford
to condemn every wooden building of
Chinatown than to allow the plague
to get beyond coatiol. Tho llfo of the
community Is at stake, doubling
Thomases havo thrust their hand Into
tho sldo and thcro will be no let up till
the plaguo Is Btampcd out. With tho
community In Its present mind nnd
present inensures In force, the pios
pcetH for speedily stamping out tho ills-
easo wero never better.
With tho unniilmnus support of tlr
people the Board of Health can act
effectively. It now has that support,
and tho lesults speak for tho capacity

Januaiy 1, 1900. Is It tho narrow
