It has been found that somo of the
sailors of the Inter-island steamers
havo been sneaking nshoro nnd going

CHAMBER OF COKMERCK
Committee Appointed to Confer Willi Exccu
tire This Afternoon-Cubic Mr
A meeting of tho Chamber of Com
merce was held at 2 o'clock this after
noon, to consider the proposals of tho
Hawnllan Medical Association. T.
Rain Wnlker, president, nnd James
Gordon Spencer, secretary, with twenty-five
other members, were In atten
dance. President Walker stated tho object of
tho meeting nnd rend tho resolutions
of the committeo of physicians. They
woro to tho effect thnt houses In tho
present infected districts bo dstroyed
by lire, that tho slto thereof bo fur
ther purged by burning tho soil when
saturated with oil, that tho ground bo
not built upon for ono year thereafter,
thnt barracks for tho peoplo turned
out of such buildings be provided, thnt
tho sewcrago system bo extended, thnt
water nitration should be adopted, and
the systematic destruction of gnrbagc
C. M. Cooke thought consideration
should also bo given to the question of
finding employment for the people nf
fectcd. Mr. Plnkham strongly advocated
radical mensuies for the cleansing of
Chlnntown, nlso for tho prevention or
similar new centers of epidemics be
ing created. It was a situation that, If
it were a military one, would ho ic-
gartlcd as demanding martial law.
Mr. Athcrton fenred it would take nil
the afternoon to discuss overy sugges
tion thnt might be mado for tho sani
tation of Honolulu. Tho only excep
tion ho took to tho rcsolutolns was In
thnt provision for prohibition of build
ing during ono year. Unless tho
ground wero Imprcgnably fenced, peo
plo would bo digging up tho soil In
quest of spoil, which would Involve a
fresh danger of Infection, Leaving out
that clause ho would move tho adop
tion of tho resolutions.
Mr. Cooko would nlso stlpulnto tho
making of nn exception of new build
ings nnd buildings capable of thorough
disinfection. This wns accepted by tho
mover nnd both exceptions supported
by Mr. Schnefcr.
A. V. Gear moved, and It was sec
onded, an amendment designed to pre
vent tho erection of unsanitary build
ings outsldo as well as insldo of the
present districts, also to havo a cubic
foot ordlnanco passed for all lodging
nnd dwelling houses.
Mr. Atherton nrgued thnt tho resolu
tions had enough in them to cover In
ono motion. If they went into nil tho
good suggestions for sanitation, It
might only hamper tho carrying out
of tho main objects sought by tho doc
tors. W. M. Glffard deprecated a too hasty
exception of tho clause forbidding tho
erection of buildings on tho Infected
gi omul for ono year. Ho cited the pro
hibition for threo years practiced In
13. F. lllshop thought tho exception
of Mr. Atherton was too Indefinite.
Stono and brick buildings might bo
nil right, but there were new wooden
buildings not constructed according
to sanitary ruled
Tho president wns In favor of having
tho decision in each caso to tho author
ities. Thero was much woodwork
about somo of the brick buildings.
Mr. Cooko withdrew his exception.
Mr. cGnr wlthdrow his motion until
tho mnln resolution had passed. This
having been done, ho corrected tho
rending of his motion to omit "lodging
houses," as ho would lncludo "all
buildings" In tho prohibition of struc
tures not approved by tho Hoard of
Health. The motion carried unani
mously. At tno request of tho meeting tho

Dr. Mitamara Attacked by Japanese

What Might Have Been Serious Riot Check'd
bj While Hen -Story of This
Had It not been for the coolhcadcd
ncss of Messrs. Towse, Hilts, Straus
nnd Ulrhe, four men on duty nt tho fu
migation headquarters at Knumnkaplll
church, Dr. Mltamurn, ono of Honolu
lu's foremost Japanese physicians,
would have been badly hurt or even
killed and n riot, involving much
bloodshed, might have been precipitat
ed. It wns at about 8 o'clock this morn
ing that Dr. Mltamurn called on these
men to come to his assistance nt tho
headquarters of tho Japanese physi
cians nnd Inspectors n few feet nwtiy,
saying thnt some of his countrymen
liaiTcomlilncil to do hint bodily injury. ,
Answering tho call for tho assistance
tho four white men went over ami '
stood outside, prepared to do what
they could should trouble nrlse.
What they saw was this. Dr .Mlta
murn was up In n corner and closely
packed nbout him wero some thirty or '
more gesticulating Japanese Inspect
ors and others. Ono little fellow hnd ;
Just mado n bound over ono of the
tables to get nt tho physician, while n
great big Inspector wns ndvancing with
tho evident intention of doing some-.
thing to prcclpltnto trouble.
The white men maungcti things cool
ly and soon hnd the Japanese quieted.
In the meantime Dr. Pratt had arrived
nnd, taking tho llttlo fellow by tho
back of the neck he marched him out
ot tho building nnd Into his dwelling
place In Hlock 10, No icslstnuco wns
offered. Hy this tlmo report of tho
trouble had reached military headquar
ters on King street nnd u strong guard
In chargo of a sergennt was despatched
to the scene nt double time. I
Tho Inspectors nnd other malcon
tents who hnd started tho trouble, bee- ,
lug that they could not have things

In tho street somo two hundred ex
cited Japanese nad collected nnd wcro
closing In on tho headquarters of the
Japancso physicians. Speaking nbout
tho Incident ono of the men at tho fu

ing to say:
"Wo used every effort to pacify and
calm tho evidently frenzied Japanese.
Hnd thero been nny undue force shown
In the beginning a bloody l lot might

tators was rlpo for anything. The peo
ple In the street would hnvo Joined In
nnd Dr. Mltnmurn, ns well ns somo of

"The troublo stalled in this manner.
Several Japaneso attempted to get Into
Hlock 10 but wero stopped by tho.
Hoard of Health guards, who havo been
given positive Instructions to allow
no one to either pass In or out. This
did not sit well on their minds, they
claiming It was their duty to mako an
Inspection of tho Jnpaneso quarters.
"Falling to Impress tho guards they
went over to tho headquarters. Spy
ing Dr. Mltamurn, head of tho Japan
eso headquarters, they placed the
blame for tho refusal of tho guards to
admit them to Hlock 10 at his door,
without rhymo or reason, nnd stnrtcd
tho trouble. Dr. Mltamurn wns very
much frightened nnd, Indeed, he hnd n
good reason to be."
Tho big Japancso Inspector already
spoken of escaped during tho excite
ment nnd, although a diligent search
for him wns made, ho could not ho
found. Later on ho returned to tho
headquarters In different clothes, hav
ing shed his kimono. On his cont was
his badgo and around his head n band
with Jnpaneso characters. Evidently
ho thought ho would not bo recognized,
but ho had been closely marked nnd no
sooner had ho entered tho door than a
military guard had him In chargo. Ho
was marched off to tho guard house
Immediately, Thero aro threo or four
