At a meeting of tho Board of Health
yesterday afternoon President Wood
announced that Minister Young had
submitted to him thrco building per
mits signed by W. E. Rowell, Superin
tendent of Public Works, for action.
Tho first of these was for a brick
building In the Infected district on the
northeast corner of Smith and King
streets. President Wood explained
that tho Board had already taken ac
tion on baildlngs In Chinatown. Ab
solutely nothing was to bo put up uutll
further notice Tho Board thereupon
voted that this permit bo denied, not
withstanding tho fact that It had been
signed by Mr. Rowell. Permission was
granted Fred Harrison to put up a
warchouso on tho makal side of Quceu
near Cooko street The third permit
was for a cottago In Dowsett lano. This
was referred back to the Minister for
Case of Knaun.
The case of Kaaua, tho plague vic

en from tho house directly to the rear
ot tho candy shop on Merchant Btreet
In which a Japanese woman and her

most suitable man for the difficult po

Its right to operate a double track

hat tho corporation laid its track in

Tho refusal ot tho Circuit Court to

On the 11th ot January, tho corn
mint states, tho Minister ot the In
rlor. under a voto of tho Executive
ouncll, addressed a request, which Is
noted In full, to Mr. Neumann, attor
ay for complainant, that, rending lltl
atlon between thu two companies, the
awallan Tramways Co. immediately
nse Its tracklaylng on King street,
ho following dny a voto of the Caccu

hat tho company had not laid tho rails

or for argument;" they wcro laid to
cllovo tho heavy trafllc nnd to connect
.vlth tho Palace loop. When such was
done Its future notion would bo decided
on. Tho company did not admit tho
Government to niter tho position ns af
ter as they chose to give Instructions
to do so. Tho complainant had spent
several thousand dollars to shift tho
track when tho Rapid Transit Co. in
truded upon tho ground "and mado a
prctenco of occupying the same with
borrowed rails and for tho sole pur
pose of shutting us off trom tho ground
which we then had a right to occupy."
Howover, It tho company ascertained
that It did not Jeopardize Its rights It
should, after perfecting the loop, stop
laying Its rails until tho action pend
ing was decided by tno Circuit Court.
The company having refused to obey
the several orders of tho MinUter, the
latter caused the mannger and work
men of complainnnt to bo arrested and
to enter Into recognlzanco to answer
to a charge of committing a common
nulsanco in digging upon King street.
Thereupon Mr. Neumann addressed a
letter to tho Minister, notifying him
that tho company intended to connect
Its rails between tho Pnlaco and Gullck
premises, and that Is thcro was any ob
jection tho Minister would bo good
enough to notify him thereof and ot
the reasons for such objection. An
answer at earliest convenience wns re
quested, as a policeman wnu stationed
at tho point foblddtng tho doing of any
work by tho company.
Chief Clerk Hnsslngor ot tho In
terior office replied, saying in effect
that tho provlous orders held good, nna
no permission to work in tho locality
would bo given.
The Minister Is required to show
causo why an order should not be
mado by tho Circuit Court, enjoining
him and his agents and Hervanta from
Interfering with tho work or tho com'
plalnant. and from causing and pro
curing tho arrest of the servants ot
the complainant for doing any ot tho
work necessary to completo and lay
