Why not ndd n matron to tho work

If San Francisco should refuse to ic

not likely tho Federal authorities will

Complaint has been mado by the Chi
nese that women of their nationality
aro subjected to unnecessary hardships
by guards who show little respect foi
Chlneso womanhood. Harsh treatment
of women of whatever nationality wlli
not be countenanced by any Intelligent
citizen radical or conservative. 'Tho op
portunity offers for tho women of tin

Every special report by physicians
or laymen during the present sclge has
oinphnslzed tho lmportanco of the
Board of Health's recommendation
that tho sewer system bo extended. At
'ho picscnt tlmo every citizen believes
that tho recommendation should bo fol
lowed to the letter. The danger tin
people should guaid against If, a possl
bio sidetracking of this work when the
jilnguo has been conquered.
Everybody sees tho necessity of sow
ar extension now, but when tho crista
Is past nnd tho public begins to count
'.ho cost, It Is moro than likely that en
thusiasm for further cxpcndlturo on
improvements will cool and sewer ex
tension may bo put down as ono of the
matters that can bo attended to later.
This was the history of tho cholera
iftermath. Tho peoplo saw Chinatown
tnd knew of Its filth nnd dnugcrs, bin
his was quickly forgotten when the
immediate danger passed. Tho 1m
irovoment stopped wlthjthe wnlllng up
jf Nuunnu sticct.
Not only should tho sewer system be
extended to Kewalo and throughout
the business district It ought to be
extended to tho residence districts nnd
higher lovels. Every cesspool In Ho
nolulu should bo done away with.
Asldo from tho sanitary valuo of tho
jowcrs, a great saving from damage to
ho streets by heavy rains can be mails
by furnishing nn outlet through tho
sowers for tho water that Hoods tla
dttcets m tho rainy season.
A prominent government offi
cial has recently cnllcd attention
through the columns of tho Bulletin to
tho great necessity of protecting tho
streets from tho Injury done by the
present system, better lack of system
of surface drainage. Tho cxpenso of
Improving tho draluago for surface
water will In the long run bo moro
than covered by tho saving mndo In tho
repairs on tho streets. Continuous
Iry weather of tho present season has
not made tho Immediate demand so
marked as In previous years, but tho
mances aro that when tho rains do

IIIlo from Prtvtitc Letters.
Tho following extracts from two
personal letters Just iccelved from th"
big Island will bo Interesting as show
lug tho light in which our plngun sltu
itlon la viewed by peoplo who stop to
.hlnk beforo thoy act. Tho llrnt Is
fiom Mr. David Glass, formerly of Ho
nolulu, now a resident of Kohnla:
"1 guess you aro all In a pretty nnx-
ous state owing to tho plague, but I do
aopo It will soon wear Itself out, and
lint without many moro fatalities. I
invo Just heard tonight that tho pco-
lo of Ullo havo taken ono of their
rnzy turns, and havo risen in a small
ebclllou, lcfiislug to let any ono land.
They havo taken possession of tho
wharf, and tho Sheilff had to talco ref-
ugo on board tho U. S. S. Pathnndor.
Theso peoplo seem determined to bring
hcmsclves beforo tho oyca of tho
world pretty prominently. I don't know
what their next movo may bo, but It Is
certain to bo somothlng In keeping with
previous events. It Is n pity Mint a
seiiRlblo frllow like our friend
will bo classed among them. My hum
ble opinion Is that a great deal too
much Is mado of tho Infection theory
right along. It Is all right to tako nil
tho precautions wo can to prevent such
a thing coming amongst us, but to
work a lot of Ignorant peoplo up to
such a pitch of excitement ns tho Chl

Uato of terror they aro ten times moro
