Having been treated to a soason of

Kvcry citizen Hhoubl read the direc
tions to Inspectors prepared by the
Citizens' Committee. Uy acquaintance
with tho unties of inspectors, every
citizen can assist In the work.
A Bulletin correspondent suggests
that the Hoard of Health of Citizens'
Committee, give public dlicctlons of tho
best methods to deal with dead rats.
He states thai among the less thought
ful people, there Is still marked Ignor
ance of tho care that must be taken
against infection, from the rodcuts.
Citizens' Sanltnry Inspectors aro th'
guardluns on whoso effort tho com
muulty depends for stamping out th
plague. Assist them in every way pos

Tho political revolution of which till
day Is an nnnlversafy, waj a niei
bagatelle compaicd with the work fo
tho better sanitation of Honolulu tha
Is going on today. This day find.! th
people united as never bfom In
struggle ngnlnst the advance of the
pest nnd for building a new city af
ter the enemy has been conquered as It
must bo eventually by the sternuous
measures now on foot. No division of
politics or nationality Is known In tho
present nisls. Notwithstanding the
apparent opinion of our Hllo friends
that their opportunity Is at hand for
dealing this city u death blow as tho
center of Island and trans-Pacific com
merce, Honolulu Is not yet lost nor
navo the people lost their heads by
giving way to wild and foolish alarm.
The struggle Is a hard one but tho
power to combat the danger Is a strong
ono. Whllo breaking down the struc
ture of filth that tin catena the com
munity, the people are building a Arm
foundation for tho future progress of a
city that can withstand tho dangers
from tho Orient and furnish nil tho
Guarantees for health, wealth and
prosperity to bo found In any common
wealth ot the woild.
OUHIOUS I'OH GREAT BRITAIN.
In all tho aggregation of British gen
erals In Smith Africa, Gen. White Is
tho only one who seems to bo holding
bis own. Tho news of tho Rocr attack
repelled at Ladysmlth Is the only re
assuring feature of the British cam
paign given by tho lato dispatches.
Gen. French, tho only leader who had
escaped a Iloer trap, has at last fallen n
victim nnd records his defeat as an ac
cident. Duller, seeking to draw the
lloers from Ladysmlth by an nttack at
Tugela river, has found tho enemy
slow to accept tho challenge, yet well
prepared to bar any general advance of
Ililtlsh forces. What wonder Is It that
tho British peoplo nro calling loudly
for a change In tho management of tho
war, nnd thnt Urltlsh tioops aro be
coming disheartened. Urltlsh homes
lmvo poured out their best blood on
South African fluids only to secure a
long and almost unbroken scries of de
feats. Thus far all tho advantages are
on the Bldo of tho Doers. It Is a ques
tion whether any chango on tho part
of Great Drltaln can overcomo tho pow
er of hamy riflemen farmers fighting to
defend their homes.

REPORT ON CONTRACT LABOII.
Call I leadiiu.uter. Washington, J.iiui
arv o. Harold Sewull, -special agent nf the
United States at Hawaii, has submitted a
report on labor conditions of the Islands
He slates at the outset tnat lie Rives the
situation exactly as he finds It, and pre
faces the renort which the resume of the
differences between free andcontr.net labor,
ins conclusion ueing in lavor- oi the latter.
The ordinary manual labor on a plantation
Is performed bv unskilled labor, contract
and free, divided among various nationali
ties. Chinese and Japanese beine predomi
nant. Free labor Is employed by the month
or day without contract and has either
come to me country as iree labor or has be
come sucn alter tne usual tiuee year con
tract has expired. While this class te
celves higher pay than men under con
tract, the men are liable to be discharged
at a moment's notice and the nl tnt.-itinn
gives them nothing but wages and shelter
wiuie worn is go'ng on. I heir position Is
exceedingly precarlous.asdistrust between
the employer and emploved seems mutual.
The contract men's position is fixed by
As a usual thing this Is for three years,
when he comes from foreign countries, and
for less time when lie is a resident of the
Islands. He Is certain of steady work and
a fixed amount per month. He can de
mand shelter for hlms-lf and his family.
For this he must work, when able, a cer
tain fixed time per day and a certain num
bei of days per month, wherever it pleases
Ills employer, and must otherwise fulfil
the terms of his contract.
Contract labor evldentlv has Its mm
side under certain conditions; according to
Mr. Sewall's statement. It may be that
things sk different over there, and perhaps
laborersare not troubled verv much bv ab

men. mat tneir immediate needs are sup
