STAND BY THE UOAIID.
The Uulletln's suggestion for the
weeding out of the population of
Chinatown now dumb lied In unsani
tary houses ban met with a heaity re
sponse from the peoplo of Honolulu.
The committee appointed by (icorgo
V. Smith Is made up of men who can
lie depended upon for sharp, sensible
action and whatever may have been
the criticisms or blckeilugs of the past
tho Board of Health now has the un
qualifled and unanimous support of
tho entire community.
At no tlmo since the plaguo made Its
apparanco In Honolulu has tho Board
of Health been Indifferent to the se
rious responsibility resting upon It,
nor failed to appreciate the necessity
for radical action nor liavo Its mem
iKirs been Inilucnced by politics In any
single act. If the plaguo has not been
(topped, tho people may at least thank
(od that petty bickerings urn at an
end suid the community has resolved
Itself Into n unanimous committee of
tho whole to suppoit and lend aid to
the efforts of the Board ol Health, In
whoso action mid leeommendatlons
full confidence may bo placed.
As tho Bulletin understands the situ
ation, the Board has held that thu de
struction of individual houses Ju
Chinatown lias hi en u questionable
measure. Owing to the crowded con
dition of till- houses it is prnrticnlly
impossible to prevent rats, tho chief
source of infection, fiom passing to
other bouses of the block during the
progress of the (lie.
The only method oT destiuctlou that
guarantees proper degree of safety Is
to remove lesldcnts of infected blocks.
' This leaves open space on all sides
when: escaping rats can bu watched
and killed. The cwntnnl com so to be
followed 'must lie destruction by (lie,
hut it Is woiso than useless to drive In
fected rats from house lo home with
tho result that Infection Is spread.
Mcauuhllo residents of Infected
blocks must be removed to sanltury
quarters. When humanity has been
cared for, an effectlo ntack with fire
upon tiio rats and Infected buildings
can be made.
This Is the woik that has now begun
and begun in earnest. Flro will be used
when fire can be niado most effective.
Don't Jump at conclusions. Don't
accept every current rumor and spread
it as a rumor or a truth, llemember
that evciy member of tho Hoard of
Health and every member of every
committee is lighting this thing as a
light for tho llfo of the community.
Stand by tho Board of Health.
AGENT HARTWULL'S REPORTS
If anything further wero needed to
demonstrate A. S. Hartwell's Incom
potencoasa representative! rom Hawaii
In Washington, his dubious reports to
Mr. Dole would bo sufflciont to carry
final conviction. The peoplo of Hawaii
may bo thankful that Hartwell Is only
tho personal representative of tho local
Chief Executlvo and is recognized as
nuch In Washington as well as In Ho
nolulu. Tne Bullotln Is In a position to btato
positively by private ndvlcca of Influen
tial Congi csslonnl friends of Hawaii
that the prospectH for the enactment of j
a bill giving Hawaii full American ter-
lltoilal rightn were never moie leas
suring. Wlille different theoiies aie
being casually discussed In tho hotel
lobbies, the strong undercurrent of for
cible sentiment, that Is woitli an thing
mill wlilili wilt iiinltc. Itself felt when
...... ......... --- - -- .
tho Hawaiian bill comes before Con-
gress for nctlon. Is steadfast in Its sup
port of the pilnelplo that Hawaii shall
bo granted a. I tho privileges of trade
and political ficedun of the territories
of the Mainland.
Hartwell's letters demonstiate one
of two things, possibly both. He Is
either ntempting to show that tho ma
jority of Congtess is opposed to Ha
waii's licit Intei ests, consequently tho
uicesslt of palng him $1000 it mouth
fiom the Diplomatic and Consular ap
propriation, or else his "wide acquain
tance In Washington" Is principally
among those men In disfavor with the
Admlnlstiatlon and opposed to tho Ke
publlinn policy of dealing wtlb Ha
waii; with these men who for political
reasons will not change their attitude
when It comes to a vote, llaitwcll hob
nobs and Is imisequently tilled with
dlie forebodings of the future.
As it representative In Washington
Special Agent" Hartwell Is tho most
useless piece of oftlclal furniture pos
sessed by the defunct Republic of Ha
waii. Anil the worst pait of It Is, he is
being paid from the publics funds to
send lepoits to Hawaii which any man
at nil conversant with tho current
magazine literature of the day could
easily compile In Honolulu.
Several words of advice have been"
offered to the Chinese citizens regard
ing their conduct while black plague
threatens tho community. It is ap
parent that more word) are necessary
to bring tho average Oriental to his
senses. The quaiantlno of Chinatown
with Its consequent interfeienco with
trade Is n harsh measure, but It must
bo continued In force until every Ccl"s
tlal In town becomes convinced that he
owesa duty to the community which he
must not, shall not slight; that duty Is
to assist, not Impede, tho health au
thorities In their work of stamping out
tho disease. Tho general quarantine Is
only necessary because of the, at first,
Indifferent nnd finally threatening at
titude of tho Chinese. By failure to
report and endeavoring to hide plaguo
cases, thoughtless onas have accom
plished their own financial misfortune.
Assomo Chincso yet show that they are
not amenable to reason, tho authori
ties have taken the right course, In
declaring it general quarantine! of tho
center from which threats emanate un
til every Highbinder Is convinced that
ho must fall Into lino with the Intel
ligent men of IiIb race. We aie dis
posed to believe that tho efforts of
sensible Chrhcso will prevail among
their obstreperous countrymen, mean
while it is necessary for tho authoilties
and the gurtids to deal vigorously witli
any attempts of Chlnclown citizens to
play the pait of the criminal fool.
CULLOM AND EXPANSION.
At the e.Nciclses held at Chlcaniauga
Turk to dedicate the monuments rais
ed In honor of llllnjfs soldiers of Hit
Civil War, Senator Cullom was one of
the principal speakers of the day. The
Senator hald Jn pint:
"This land was bom in tho tr.ivull
and trouble of tho Hevolutlon. The
glories of our great conflicts Inspiie us
to greater nnd higher nctis of patriot
Ism as wo follow the course which duty
niaik for us. Uvery step our beloved
nation t alios in Die lino of human lib
el ty has become expressive of advance
ment most dear lo the henit of every
American. Ah serious talk of Im
perialism or of uu-Amcrlcan restric
tion Is gratuitous and uncalled for.
"It Is as proper for this country
to glow nnd expand us It was to be
lioin. It was bom to livo nnd It lived
to expand Its sphere of usefulness. I:
lives not merely to absorb territory
nnd becomo great and wealthy, but, to
Justify Its birth and ancestry. It lives
to make tho world better nnd broader
and to glorify tho God of Nations. The
pioofs of God's special fnvor have been
sliowcred upon the United States, Li-t
that arm bo palsied which would take
a singlo laurel irom tuo crown o:
American glory. Our conflicts wore
waged In the tuteiest of tho human
race. Tho wars of ancient history
were tho brutalities ordained by some
ruler. In ti selfish struggle for domin
ion. Oms weio to maintain a prin
ciple." SEWER SYSTEM FOR HILO.
One of tho matters that will bo agi
