ItOARI) OP IIUA1.TII.
Tho olllclal organs furnish amuse
ment by endeavoring to explain where
in, by their captious criticism, they
have rendered the authorities support
in ...o light against the plague. That
this explanation should be deemed ne
cessary carries Its own condemnation
of the attitude of the olllclal contem
poraries. "Tile omplete divorce of the
duties of the Attorney Cleneral and tho
President of tho Hoard of Health" is u
(intention which tho Advertiser copies
direct from the llulletln. This Is a
principle that should bo followed In
every department of the government,
The Hoard of Health should by nil
means bo nn Independent body, nnd It
Is known that the present Attorney
Ccnernl Is quite ready to relinquish tho
duties of which his predecessor In
office was so Jealous. Now -that the
principle Is accepted the authorities
should see to It that n physician be
placed at the head of tho Hoard, n man
who combines n record for sharp busi
ness administration with professional
protnlueneo not likely to bo disputed.
Such u man can bo found and none will
bo better suited to the position than
Dr. ('. II. Wood.
8TO! liUII.DING SHACKS.
As was btated In the llulletln homo
time ngo tho Publle Works Depart
ment should tnko a very fnrelblo hint
from tho rovelatloiiH which tho blnck
plague has brought nut. Whatever
mny havo been dono In tho past, tho
.Minister of tho Interior should put n
htop to tho Indiscriminate granting of
permits for tho construction of build
ings which nro merely second editions
ot tho shacks' now committed to the
llamcs In Chinatown.
Steadily tho two-story ramshacklo
affairs wlthj stores below and rooms
above with Verandahs 'overhanging the
sidewalks havo been advancing from
Chinatown Into tho suburban dis
tricts. On King strcot, Dcrotanla
street from Walklkl to Palama they
havo been going up ns rapidly as tlio
morn pqrtcntloiiH houses! Im
mediately tne structures are completed,
they nre Indiscriminately crowded with
im Indiscriminate population.
The result Is that the town Is build
ing up the same conditions through
out thu town that now exist In China
town. The Public Works Department must
be held solely responsible for this con
dition. Huslness men will put up the
shacks Just as long as the (lovcrn
mental departments allow It. A very
prompt and vigorous halt should be
called before the peoples awake to find
a Chinatown In every nook and corner
of the city.
MR. IIAIiTWIlLL'S HANDICAP.
If It be titio that fnolllclnl Delegate

cutive will have the good sense to ac

L.i Executive should accept his resig
Every mlvlio from Washington, ex
cept possibly those from the local
men who dislike to admit their fast
waning personal cause, Is to the effect
that whatever prestige Mr. Dole ever
had with the friends of Hawaii hub
been Irretrievably lost by bis nn
tugonlsm of President McKlnley and
Administration officials In relation to
the land order. Whatever Influence
Hnttwell may have In Washington
has been nullllled by his war record,
and his anomalous position us n per
sonal representative sent to upset tne
rulings of olllclnls through whom, ln
olrectly, he derives ills quasi olllclal
It In about time that this farce 'was
brought to an end, nnd the small per
sonal plans which Sir. Dole and his
delegate represent be withdrawn, Hint
tho stumbling blocks In the pathway
of Hawaiian legislation mny bo lessen
ed. Local people may bo willing to
forgot tho mistakes of Mr. Dole and
bis personal representative, but un
fortunately they cannot wipe out tho
handicap, which opposition to Adiulu
..nntlon olllclnls has made nn active
factor In Washington. An attempt,
though It may bo fruitless, Khonhl bo
made ior u complete change of iront
cm the part of our olilelals. They can
not save themselves, but It is possible
that they may be able to save vie
Islands from the further embarrass
ment of past mistakes.
ny nil means let Hartweil be re

than one discredited by the strong
friends of tho Islands.

Washington, December 2.1. 1 he Span
ish Government has at last formally rec
ognized the Filipino Government through
Its representative. Captain Curo of the
Spanish navy has been sent by his Gov
ernment to I ok after the Interest of the
Spanish prisoners In the Philippines nnd to
arrange for their Immediate return to
SduIii. Nelore his departure from Spain.
however, Captain Curo received Instruc
tions first to proceed to Paris and there
present commission to Agondllo, tne chief
of the Filipino Junta In Paris, and request
lor himself a passport. Thus Spain, by
tills request, tecognl7es for the first time
the Filipino Government, and thus it has
added another plume to the arrogance of
the Filipino representative at Paris, who
draws his pav, reclines In an easy chair,
enjoys the privileges of polite society and
the numsrous pleasures of the French ca
pital, while his countrymen are lighting
against tremendous odds.
