Dr. Herbert presented a written re
port from tho eommlttco to confer with
tho Board of Health on sanitary rules
On motion of Dr. Sloggett, seconded
by Dr. Hodglns, the roports weio una
nimously adopted. Following arc tho
recommendations submitted by Dr.
1st. Tho law relating to tho erection
of buildings should bo amended so as
to rcqulro a certificate of a duly author
ized otllclal as to Its sanitary arrange
ments, plumbing, etc.; nlso to tho
suitability of tho proposed location
where tho building Is to bo erected.
2d. Thcro Is no existing law to pre
vent tho erection of shacks which lu
nil probability would become unsani
tary in a short time.
3d. The liru limit should extend
westerly to tho Nuuanu stream.
4th. No building should he allowed
on tho burned district until some fixed
Cth. A general law should bo passed
providing for tho sanitary 'arrangement
of nil houses, requiring proper plumb
lug nud compelling connection with
soworngo system whero sewers aro laid.
Gth. Land that has been exposed by
firing buildings should bo fenced In
and no one allowed Inside, tho fence.
7th. Houses that aro lying empty,
(I. c. unoccupied) and that are not
dally aired aro nc'extrcnio menace to
tho public health, noting ns Incubators
during epidemics of plnguo, and would
suggest that tho owners of such dwell
ings or buildings be compelled to keep
them clean nnd properly ventUntcd and
open to tho visiting Inspector.
8tu. After tho sowerngo system Is
established no cess poopls should be
allowed lnstdo tho fire limits.
9th. Wo aro of tho opinion that tho

experience, nnd consider this n matter
of vital importance. Quito probably If
Investigations In this department with
regard to Improperly certified and sud
den deaths or deaths after a short
period of Illness had been conducted by
n mcdlcnl man, this plague might have
been recognized earlier.
10th. A sanitary Inspector should

A special meeting of the Chamber of
Commerco was hold this forenoon on
tho subject of a quarantine wharf. Tho

It recommended a wharf on tho other

and discharged without coming ashore
on this side. Tho commltteo submitted
a plan for a warehouse and wharf over
It was resolved "that the Chamber

THE PATHFINDERS CAP i'AIN
Guaranteed to Land Major
in llllo Town.
Told Captain Frekan of the Klnau
Would Land Ibe Other Three Cabin
Among the passengers who left for
Hllo n week ago today was Major Pur
dy of tho First National bank Mho had
with him 1125,000 In gold as well as his
blcyclo nnd 11 small amount of baggage.
Upon nrrlval In Hllo bay he, along
with tho other three passengers for
Hllo was told he could not land. This
was very much resented by tho passen
gers slnco their business was of such
a nature that It would not brook do
lay. Major Purdy's mission was the
establishment of a branch of tho First
When Sheriff Andrews' ultimatum
had been delivered tho captain of the
United States survey ship Pathfinder,
which had been In port but a short
time, enmo over to tho Klnau In a smnll
boat and told Major Purdy If he would
go aboard with him he would aeo that
ho landed In Hllo as had been his In
tention. Mnjor Purdy accepted at once.
Ho then turned to Captain Freoman of
tho Klnau and offered to tako the other
threo passengers, but tho passengers
themselves thought that, to avoid com
plications, they had better return to
Honolulu and see what could bo dono
for them. ,
Tho captnin of tho Pathfinder Is
known to bo a man of his word so that,
troublo or no trouble, Mnjor Purdy
wa3 very probably In Hllo soon after
the Klnau weighed, anchor and left
nguin for this port.
Tho Orpheum company had a llttlo
troublo In getting away from Hllo and
on board tho Klnau. They weio told
that no boat would be nllowed to como
anywhero near Hie shoro and that, If
nn attempt at landing was made, thcro
would bo n force of at least four hun
dred armed men on tho wharf ready to
do all kinds of blood curdling things. I
As a matter of ffctt a boat did go to tho
landing and not only did take tho Or
pheum peoplo aboard hut did not meet
with any resistance Not even a cap
was found In tho possession of nnyono
on tho wharf.
One of the members of tho Orpheum
company tells another story on Sheriff
Androws. It seems that, upon tho nr
rlval of tho Maul In Hllo Androws said
he would not allow anything to land.
Later on ho put tho 200 Japanese pas
sengers aboard tho Klnau and allowed
tho mules to land. The Orpheum com
pany Informnnt saw tho owner of tho
mules who said he had them snfo on
tho plantation. Ho could not seo why
thoy were Inndcd unless It wns because
the mules wero of such a proverbially
stubborn natute that they would re
sist nny attempt of plague bacilli at
attaching themselves to their bodies.
Cooper Met With
Cans and Rocks
Evidently tho people of Hllo aro
much more In favor of tho regulations
of Sheriff Andrews than at first sup
posed. Tho report came by tho Mauna
Loa today that the citizens of Hllo
would not allow Minister Cooper to
land when tho Klnau arrived thcro
Monday. Purser Tuft of tho Mauna
Loa kindly furnished tho Bulletin with
tho following report:
"The Klnau arrived In Hllo Monday
morning with Minister Cooper aboard.
Evidently tho people of Hllo wero ex
pecting some steamer from Honolulu,
for they flocked to tho wharf with their
guns and rocks.
"When tho Klnau did Anally arrive
they lined up and stood shoulder to
shoulder to prevent tho landing of any
boat. Sheriff Androws then went out
to the Klnau for a conforenco with
Minister Cooper but when he returned
In ono of the Klnau's boats tho citizens
refused to allow him to land.
"Andrews was forced to put back to
tho Klnau nnd later on was landed In
ono of tho survey ship Pnthflindor's
"Wo stopped nt Kallua at G p. m.
Monday to hear whether any landing
had boon effected, but learned that
neither passengers nor freight had
been allowed to land. A final decision
was expected today.
"Andrews tried to get tho Mauna
Loa to go from Kau to Hllo to bo fu
migated and threatened to send pollco
to enforco tho order. Tho Kau peoplo
told blm to go to a warmer cllmato and
send his police. They would attend
to their own matters and tho pollco."

CHASING DOWN A RUMOR
President Wood Pals an End to Un
Visits to Oahu Plantation Hi Serious Sick-
re&s Plantation Men ou lbs Alert -
Compute Publicity Assured.
"You may stato In posltlvo torms
that tho rumor of a caw of
plague nt Oahu plantation Is absolute
ly without foundation or suspicion of
fact. I hno examined the Jnpanese
who Is 111 at tho plantation and ho has
not tho plague."
This statement Piesldent C. I). Wood
made to tho newspapers this morning
after n trip down tho railroad to run
down 11 rumor that camo from tho coun
try last night. Tho report was that
thcro has been a suspicious death of
n nathc at Alca, and nlso n caso of
plnguo at Oahu plantation.
Early this moinlng General Passen
ger Agent Frcd"siiHUi placed a special
train nt Dr. Wood's disposal and ho
stnrtcd down tho line to learn tho
facts of tho situation. Stopping nt
Alea ho found tho station agent had
not even heard of tho rumored death
of a ntithc. Other people about tho
placo wero equally surprised on hear
ing tho statements that had gained
currency In Honolulu.
"I then proceeded to Oahu planta
tion," said Dr. Wood, "and found the
plantation men nnd Dr. fllnko very
much surprised at tho rumors that had
got abroad. Tho fact Is that n Jnpan
eso laboicr was taken sick yesterday
afternoon nbout half past four. Dr.
Blake did what he should have done
Immediately Isolated the man until tho
cnuso of Illness could bo determined.
Tho Chlncso, Japanese nnd Ignorant
peoplo of tho plantation got scared and
Jumped nt tho worst conclusion. At 9
o'clock I got tho report. I saw thu
Jnpanese nnd ho hns no symptom or
sign of plaguo.
"I went throughout the ounrters nt
both Oahu nud Honolulu plantations
and found every possible pcrcautlon
being taken to prevent the Introduction
of tho disease. I don't believe thero
will be ono enbo of plaguo on any of
these plantations nud If ono does break
out tho plantation men aro In better
condition to prevent Its spread than wo
aro In town. All that is needed Is for
thu managers and their assistants to
keep their eyes open, nnd this they are
doing. They are constantly on this
alert. Plnntntlon qunrteis aro guard
ed night nnd day by responsible men
to prevent hnrborlng strangers. I had
n talk with both Ahrcns nnd Low.
They nre fully nwako to tho necessities
of tho situation nnd nre sparing no ef
fort to keep their est a ten freo from in
fection. At tho first opportunity I

"Tho statement that nny suspicious
