Hy what right 1h the pulilK' money
of the Diplomatic and Consular up-
propilatlou being used to further the
personal political intcriHts of our oin-
clals In WnfdiliiRton.
Apropos of Congressman Hltt's ie-
inarUs on the land question it is due
Mr. Hatch to state that so far as known
ho lias never maintained that the
Nowlands i ('solution gave the local
Kovcrnnu-nt authority to proceed with
the sale of the public lands of Hawaii.
The condition of affairs at Wallukti
and ICahului. as outlined by the resolu
tions passed at last week's public
meeting, shows that the expenditure
of public funds to secuie pinner sani
tary conditions should not stop In Ho
nolulu. C.le tin: outside districts
money before the emergency caused by
the possible appearance of black
Work on the shack on King street
opposite Alapal still continues. As
Japanese woikmen nie engaged on this
place it Is to be presumed that the
house when completed Is to be occupi
ed by Asiatics, with stores below and
IHIng looms on the second lloor. Thus
Chinatown makes Its progress into the
business and residence dlstilcls. How
long Is the Iloaul of 1'iiblle Woi ks to
continue the old policy of building
Chinatowns throughout the city? Isn't
the lesson of old Chinatown sulllclent?
BUILD MORU BARRACKS.
The question of how to care for the
pcoplo removed from the Infected dis
tricts, after tho quarantine period is
best answered by building moro sani
tary barracks and maintaining the
people at public expense until the
danger is passed. Tho quarters pro
vided are equal, If not superior to
those vacated. For the people to re
turn to tho town, merely it-salts in
other sections than Chinatown becom
ing ovei crowded, anil thus th old
problem arises In a different district.
If the Hoard of Health considers It safe
for the laborers to go to the planta
tions so much the better. With China
town closed and buslnebs in that sec
tion at a standstill there Is practically
no opportunity for tho men released
from quarantine to earn money. They
have been turned out of house and
home through no fault of their own
und it Is the duty of tho community to
see that they are properly cared for.
They are now properly fed and given
romfortahlo anil sanitary quarters.
This could not be usssured If they are
turned loose on the town to look out
Remember that tho majority of these
people aie poor and depended upon
day labor for support. The community
has no right to order them out of the
quarantine barracks and throw them
upon their own resources and at the
mercy of Chinese1 and Japanese hoard
ing house keepers of the town.
I'OLLOW OUT SUGGESTIONS.
Conclusions reached by the physi
cians of Honolulu aio of llrst consider
ation at tills time, and tho utterances
at Saturday night's meeting Indicate
that the medical men aro viewing the
situation In a conservative as well as
unanimous manner. Kven this con
servative thought presages very radical
action to carry tho fight ngalnst tho
plaguu to a successful end. Tho sug
gestions made aro tho result of deli
berate) thought and tho final erystall
zatlon of tho multifarious suggestions
from many sources. The lino of action
proposed should bo accepted Implicitly.
Neither money or effort should bo
spared to cause tho recommendations
of tho Medical Association and tho
Hoard of Health to ho speedily resolved
Into effective measures carried out to
Tho recommendation for what Is
practically the destruction of tho pres
ent Chinatown Is Indeed a practical ono
hut we believe tho people are ready for
tjjtei. .HyntAi-VrhiS.-,, . tnt.tik.
It and that the fotces nre now so
thoroughly unanimous and welt organ
ized that It can bo carried out. Tho
work cannot bo done in a day. and due
consideration must be given personal
ami property rights. Yet the estab
lishment of the campaign on broad
lines, that will be mote far reaching
than simply stamping out the present
danger. Is the only scheme by which
guarantee for filiate safety can lie
Tho Health Doatd is doing Its work
nobly ntul receives the steadfast sup
port of tho entire community. Recom
mendations for the future niado hy the
lloatd and by the physicians are
sweeping but in following out this
plan, whether the plague Is promptly
checked or not, will gain assurance of
future safety from epidemics. The
people can llnd no better time than the
present In which to build for tho fu
ture. Follow- out the suggestions and
let the good work go on without let or
hindrance till Honolulu Is placed In a
thoroughly sanitary condition.
AIR. MITT'S REMARKS.
Of all the statements brought out In
tho controversy, manufactcured by our
local authorities, over the nubll land
order, none strikes home mo-o forcibly
than the remarks of Congressman lilt!
published In Saturday's Uullctln.
Following close on the heels of the
chargo of "misrepresentation In Wash
Ington" made by tho local official loin
pact, In the midst of the person;! poli
tical campaign now being cat lied on
by t'nolllclnl Delegate Hartweli and W.
O. Smith, as a response to tho criticism
of the I'letddent and his Administra
tion made by local olllcluls, we have
the statement of Congressman Hill
that "nothing could be clearer tl.au
that tho President could not, under the
resolution of annexation, have done
anything else than cull a halt ii. the
disposition of the lauds by I'lesident
If the attitude of tho Dole go em
inent on this question had no: nlir?.!
been discredited ami practically con
demned by the Attorney (Soncral's r
ply to the contention of Mr. Dole's
pcrfonal leprescntatlve. tlu u'lclu
slous of Congressman llltt, than whom
Hawaii has no warmer friend, woiild
be sulllclent to prow that the burden
of misrepresentation In Wcshlnutcm
rests solely upon the Dole gox eminent
and Its personal representatives.
From tho day on which tho I'r-wl-dent's
land proclamation was nuida
public up to tho present, the Dole gov
ernment, Its subsidised press, Its sub
sidized friends and Its special agents
have made the chargo that tho action
of the President was the dl.-ect result
of falsehoods and misrepresentations
uttered hy tho people of Hawaii. In
other words tho local ofllcl.il compact.
In order to save Itself politically, has
committed Itself to a policy of mlsiep
resentntlon, evidently hoping that the
keen minded loyal statesman cm be
misled and hoodwinked by a smnll sel
fish faction assuming to spc.il; for .he
people of these Islands.
Any Individual, who mukes the
statement that the Prejideat's land
order or any other ruling in connec
tion with Hawaii Is the result of tho
personal or political Intriguing of .my
Individual or any association or faction
of Hawaii, or at Washington, utters an
Congressman Hitt speaks as a friend
of Hawaii, a filcnd who has led tho
fight for Americanizing Hawaii and
will continue lojal to tho principle and
nctlvo in tho light. His views aro to
be taken more as an expression of re
gret tlinn of wrath, and thereby Is tho
serious character of tho local officials'
antagonism of the administration's
policy nindo manifest.
A A1ANOA ASSAULT.
Hern.ird Perry, a resident of Mnnoa, to
day swore out a warrant for the arrest on
a Chlne.se storekeeper do'ng business In
the valley on the charge of assault and
battery. Perry told the following storv
to a Hulletln reporter llrs inonilng. "I
had trouble with the Chinaman over a
bottle of kerosene ..oil last week and at the
time I was attacked by himself and two
others. I got the best of the fellows and
then ran away. Sunday my brother and
I went to the store for something I had
no sooner entered the dour than the shop
keeper came rushing at me with a bar of
Iron. 1 grappled with him but just at that
moment lanother Chinaman lilt me In the
back with a club. This made me relax
my hold and then the first Chinaman hit
me over the head with the Iron, causing
me to faint.
Exposing his head Perry showed an
ugly cash several Indies long, evidently
caused by some blunt weapon.
