THC CITIZENS COMMITTEE.
Special attention Is culled to the ic
quest made by the Citizens' Sanitary
Commlttco for the Hiispfiiston of bnnl
iicsH tomorrow so far as possible.
Tlila comniltto Is forwarding n most
linpoitnnt work of the jnmpalgn
acaliiot tho pldKiic. Unhesitating sup
port should bo fileti Its every re(Uest
or miRKoatlun by the Intelligent people
of tho community. The committee and
lt Inspectors have u big task on their
hands, and the rapidity with which
the homes of the people are rendered
frco from danger depends upon hearty
cooperation of tho members of every
household In tho town. Throw your
houses open to the Inspectors. Clean
up every placo that has a suspicion of
belli); unsanitary. Ho prompt In re-
sponsu to every request of the men
who arc giving their time to this work,
which will eventually free tho city of
the pest. It was done In cholera times.
Jt can bo done again. The Hoard of
Health Is fighting the pbmue In the In
fected centeis. Upon tho citizens rests
tho responsibility of guarding against
tho pest getting beyond present boun
daries. Uphold the Citizens' Sanitary
Committee and thereby render personal
nsslstnnco tr the Hoard of Health.
Steady nerves and unaulmous action
is what the situation demands.

Conditions yesterday bordered close
upon a panic, and every rumor Increas
ed by geonictiic progression until the
peoplo were reddy to bellovo everything
but wcro sure of nothing. Whatever
tho future has In store, It Is absolutely
mandatory that tho peoplo guard
against a panic as against tho plague.
Good people of Honolulu who did not
linvo tho advantage of tho experience
given by cholcia times should remem
ber that there is still a good distance
between Honolulu and tho bowwows.

quite conservative. No buildings that
can be placed in sanitary condition
havo been destroyed. Drlck structures

WORK THAT TELLS.
Citizens of Honolulu havo responded
right manfully to tho demand of the
hd'ur. Inspection of the wholo city nf
ter the manner followed In cholera
times has become an nbsoluto necessity
as n guarnntco of rensonnblo safety
outside the center of Infection. With
tho spirit that now obtains In the whlto
community there will be no shortage of
volunteers to do this work, nnd a suffi
cient number of capable men who can
bo depended upon are nt the call of tho
committee. Hnvlng established this
safeguard for tho prompt detection of
sickness and prevention against Its
spread through Asiatics wandering
from placo to place, tho next and most
lmportnnt thing for tho people to do Is
to keep a cool head on their shoulders
so far as possible. Tho number of ru
mors abroad that lire without the least
foundation or suggestion of fact Is
something marvellous not to say ills
cournglng to thoso who nppreclato the
alnoluto necessity for tho public to
keep cool If the best work Is to be
Calm Judgment Is ipilto as Important
a factor In tho present crisis as vigor
ous cffoit. Fear that borders on panic
Is as dangerous as tho plague. In lend
ing assistance to tho authorities the
public should know that n level head
counti for as much nnd sometimes
moro than physical effort. Every man,
woman nnd child ought to volunteer to
help put an end to tho wild yarns that
pass for truths, but as a rule are man
ufactured by Imaginative minds that
deal principally with fiction. The wo
men of tho town nro worried enough,
business has nlieady been damaged
sufficiently by the situation ns It Is
without adding a rattle brained scnio
that does nothing but furnish a
stumbling block for tho leaders nnd
tho rank and lllo who nro putting their
best work Into tho fight.
BROTHELS ON PUNCHHOWL.
A committee consisting of J. M. Vi
vas, Rev. E. O. Sllva, Rev. J. V. Durao
and A. II. R. Vlorra called nt tho Ilul
letlu ofllco this morning and requested
thin paper to state that tho ra-ipcetnole
citizens of Punchbowl demand that tho
French macqueream living In the
Punchbowl district either llvn quietly
or they will bo ousted from tho placo
by outside nsslstuuce.
These dissolute people have had
their homes on Punchbowl for coma
tlmo past nnd have caused no p.irtlci
lar disturbance. Since tho restrictions
of quarantine In Chinatown, these peo
ple have turned their houses Into pub
lic brothels that disgrace tho commun
ity and disgust the respectable families
of the vicinity.
The committee states that this condi
tion will not bo allowed to continue.
If tho residents do not keep quiet vol
untarily, vigorous nctlon will be taken
to make them live respectably or got
out. Tho places mentioned particularly
by the committee are: A houso near
Robert Boyd's residence, two near the
Mormon church, nnd two near the resi
dence of Judgo Perry.
IJODY POUND AT WA1KIKI.
At about 4 o'clock yesterday aftvr
noon Deputy Marshal Chllllngworth
wan informed of the finding of a body
of n Jnpaneso child, nbout-tluvo weeks
old, on tho beach near John Ena's
placo nt Wn.klkl. It was thought ut
first that tho child might havo been ii
victim of tho plaguo and tho body was
left on tho bench. It was removed af
ter midnight nnd burled this morning,
It having been proven that death did
not result from tho plague.
Tho bag In which tho body was
found was marked: "Walmea, Kauai."
It Is tho opinion of Deputy Marshal
Chllllngworth that tho child belonged
to sonio of the Japanese on tho Klnau
and was thrown ovci board from that
vessel after death.

This opinion was unchanged at mid
night. Tho censorship was screwed
down to tho tightest notch, so that
only trivial camp Incidents were re
lated by tho news ngencles.
Tho military writers of tho press
were divided In their forecasts of tho
plan of attack. Ono group held that
tho Inhlnwo mountain would bo tho
first objective point nnd that the south

undismayed by tho falluro of previous

Tho last detail was significant, since
no turning movement on tho lower Tu

managed tho transport system in tho
previous campaign In South Africa
said last night Hint this was not con
clusive evidence, since tho mulo train
