TUESDAY IANUAHY !, 1000
The most notable feature of Ha
waii's campaign In Washington Ih thn
rapidity with which the Idols of the lo
cal government arc fallliiK.
Still tho work of ronstriietlon con
tinues on the King Ktrect shaeU oppo
site Alnpnl Btivct. Another monumont
to the Issuance of free and easy build
ing permits for a future Chinatown.
Not n tear would bo hhed by any
merchant In town should the blocU of
shacks on the Ewa side of Kort street
on King bo consigned to the destruc
tion that has been meted on to China
If the "prompt and elllelent" work
of tho I'ubllu Works department Is ex
emplified by the progress of the Wal
lutcti water works, what wonder l.i It
that the people of the outside districts
are raising a rumpus?
With Minister Young hot on the
trail of the Hoard of Public Works,
there Is some chance of Walluku's for
cible plea for a water system receiving
more attention than mere acknow
ledgement of having heard the roar.
In Honolulu's present distress llllci
sees oppoi (unity for Its own future
greatness. If llllo will accept (he
plague along with the future greatness
Honolulu Is willing to swap Jobs and
transfer honors to tli Queen City of
The movement started by tho .Medi
cal Association ta being carried on In n
manner that will assure concerted nc
tion In the future as well as the pres
ent. When the physicians. Hoard of
Health. Chamber of Commerce and
Planters' AshoelatUm get together ami
decide upon a line of action. Its pretty
sure something will be done.
If work on the barracks for China
town people Is delayed by shortage of
carpenteis or lumber, the Citizens'
Committee ought to bo authorized to
Impress men and material. It Is a
short sighted policy for any man to
allow any personal Interests to retard
this work, as the resumption of busi
ness In its usual channels depends
largely upon tho speedy completion of
tho barracks and properly disposing of
The Board of Health can be depend
ed upon to tako proper care of the peo
ple, whose term of quarantine In the de
tention barracks Is completed. If the
new barracks cannot be finished with
sulllclent rapidity to accommodate the
Increasing homeless population, the
tents of the National (luard, not now
In tie might well be brought Into ser
vice. While work on the permanent
barracks Is going oil. those tents would
make healthful and reasonably com
fortable quarters for the men from Un
infected district. This would leave
room for the accommodation of a lar
ger number of women and children in
the barracks thus far completed.
While alarmists in financial circles
have a sci'loua condition on which to
base dire forebodings for the future,
there Is nothing in the present situa
tion which portends a crash or any
continued check on our progress. It
was Hon. Arthur Sowall who remarked
tho other day "You have some very
keen business men hero In Honolulu."
The financiers who have shown thoir
marked ability In the past are not the
ones to ghe themselves over to n
stampede when facing critical condi
tions. Tne banks are as sound as the
gold coin which they pay out and no
legitimate Investments or enterprise
will bo allowed to go by tho board
while the tlnanclal Institutions main
tain tho present conservative policy.
Calm, tool headed, thoughtful men me
The addition of representative Chin
ese and Japanese to the comuiitteo ap
pointed to appraise damages on the
hoines In Chinatown destroyed by lire
would unquestionably be a step to
wards allaying much of the antagonis
tic feeling among the Ignorant denizens
of Chinatown. The condemned houses
were homes notwithstanding tho un
sanitary character. When tho former
occupants seo their goods and chattels
removed or given over to the llamcs
they do not stop to think of the
ncecbslty of these measures for greater
personal safety They naturally view
tho white, element In control with dis
favor, thoughtlessly drawing tho conclu
sion that duo recognition Is not given
thu rights of Orientals. While tho re
sults, as regards damages or destruc
tion, are not likely to bo changed, the
appointment of representative business
men of tho Chinatown district to tho
lommltteo would do not a llttlo to
wards removing the antagonistic spirit.
WA1LUICU WATUli 8Y8THM.
Maul, pursuant to the spirit of the
times calls for action In Its behalf, and
few peoplo who read the resolutions
passed by the Citizens' Committee last
Saturday ran doubt the Justice of the
With the black plague In Honolulu
nnd the ever present possibility of In
fected goods having reached some of
the outlying districts before the local
quarantine was declared, Walluku and
Kahuliil arc dependent upon a water
supply compared with which our Nuu
anu system Is the exemplification of
purity. Citizens of Honolulu and otll
clals must not run nway with the Idea
that Honolulu, bad as It Is, Is the only
place In the Islands tlmt calls for
prompt action and liberal expenditure
of public funds.
Note the statement of the resolu
tion: 'Irst The last Legislature appio-
pi luted $30,000 to establish a system
of water works for Wnilukn and Ka
hulul. Second The site for a reset voir in
the Tiki valley and the necessary rights
of way have been secured.
Tno money has been appropriated
ami the necessary rights of way se
cured for at least a beginning on this
much needed water system. And what
are the conditions which the resldcutr
of these districts face today? The
'osolullons tell tho story.
l-'lrst At the present time the ma
jority of the residents of Walluku arc
compelled to use water for drink. u;
and household purposes from opn
ditches running through the town of
Second -At the present time no
fresh water for drinking or household
put poses can be obtained In the town
of iMihulul except such water as may
be carried In ban els from ditches in
Walluku to said Kahuliil.
In other words the majority of resi
dents In the most thickly settled sec
tions of Maul use for drinking and
household purposes water from the
open ditches that run through the
town, water subject to contamination
from an hundred and one sources.
"The niajorlty of residents" who use
ibis water neither boil nor filter their
drinking water, nor are they likely to
do It until educated by the severn les
son of an epidemic that will count Its
cost In human lives. Freedom from
epidemics in tho past is no guarantee
for the future as Honolulu has dis
covered. Well may 'tho committee of which
W. J. Lowrle Is chairman a man well
known as conservative and sensible
call upon tho government, through the
Minister of tho Interior, to proceed
with the construction of the water sys
tem "without further delay." Tlu
Legislature which appropriated the
money for this system of water works
adjourned eighteen mouths ngo and
not a pipe has been laid. If for no
other reason than the present Jeopar
ulzliig of vast business Interests on
Maul, the people of Honolulu should
Join with the Intelligent sentiment of
Walluku and Kahuliil lu demanding
that this public work be carried on
'without further delay."

It Is something of a relief to know
that the Hoard of Health had not en
tirely overlooked Hawaii in Its deli
berations of health matters. It Is un
fortunate that the communication to
Sheriff Andrews did not reach here
sooner; many unpleasant thoughts
would have remained unborn and tho
people of llllo would huvo saved civ-
lug expression to some uncmnpllmcn
taiy opinions of that body In Honolulit
which looks after tho health of the
citizens. Had a letter been written to
tho superintendent of public works a
delayed reply would not bo out of iho
usual sehedulo of that ofllce, but from
tho Hoard of Health It seemed extra
ordinary. Mi's, liny wood In Wjinliliijiton.

They wish that Englishmen who refuse
to take an oath of allegiance such us

upon any nation of Its own size. Let It '
