The general slump In stocks and a

Dr. Wood Reminds Citizens of Their Engage
ment Consldeiailon of Question by Plan
ters Atherton on Erection of Shacks.
"What Is to bo done with tho largo
number of people In quarantine when
released?" This question wns put to
somo citizens tills morning, nnd ans
wers were received ns follows:
Chas. M. Cooko "Thnt subject was
before tho Planters' Association tho
other day whether It would not be
wise to contract with these men nnd
send them to the plantations, many of
which need moro labor. But the trou
ble wrs thnt wo were so anxious about
no chance being taken ot sending the
plague to the other Islands that we (lid
not think it safe to advocate this plan.
Wo did not know whether tho peoplo
on the other Islands would nllow them
even to land from Honolulu. Rime
then we liuve had a meeting In which
wc passed a set of resolutions asking
the Bond of Health to retsrlct the ship
ment of freight to tho other Islands.
In view of these facts the only alterna
tive, to my mind, Is to employ what
peoplo wc enn here In Honolulu nnd
feed the remainder until such time ns
they can be set to work. What might
bo to tho ndvnntngc of the people nnd
government Is to press public Improve
ments hero lnipioving the streets nil
wo possibly can. The filtration plant
would take n large number of men."

subject nny thought. I am not pre

land sny ono hundred ncrcs should
be scucrcd nt Knllhl, and barracks con
structed on It for accommodating ten
thousand people. Make tho placo
thoroughly sanitary, with nmplo spare,
between tho buildings. Keep tho peo
ple there for a month. Let their main
tenance come out of public funds up
to a million dollars. After that. If tho
necessity still exist, levy nssessments
on the citizens which prnctlcnlly
menus tho planters until nil danger
has passed. Thero Is another matter
that should bo dealt with. It Is nn out
rage to nllow such shacks as thnt go
ing up In King street, nt tho foot of
Alnpal. set down on the ground. I be
lieve Rowell has no power to Inter
fere, so long ns the letter of the law Is
observed, but the Board of Health
should hnve the power. People from
quurnntlno will crowd Into the places
right behind there. It does not neoni
wlso to let nil thoso people scatter
about the town."
Dr. C. 11. Wood, President of tho
Board of Health "It Is n matter Ilia
citizens will have to take charge of.
After tho Board of Health had decided
to destroy a large part of Chinatown, It
(onslclcrcd the question of responsi
bility for taking care of tho people who
would bo left without homes and places
of business. That Is what caused tho
Board to hesitate first, tho disposi
tion of tho people whllo under quaran
tine, nnd then, looking beyond, tho nd
ditlonul responsibility of housing nnd
caring for tho large population nftcr
that peiiod had cxplied. The matter
was discussed nt meetings of the Board
with citizens lu conference. On tho
last occasion the Bonid was given to
understand thnt It was tho Bonrd'a
business to provide for the sanitary
condition of Honolulu, nnd tho citizens
would iook out for tho sufferers. As
their quarantine terms expire tho peo
ple will bo restored to perfect liberty.
Somebody must see thnt they aro not
to bceomo a burden on tho community
or permitted to starve on tho streets.
It Is a proper time to notify tho com
munity that theso pcoplo aro to bo
thrown upon Its care. Besides somo
whoso terms will shortly expire, h
