SATURDAY JANUARY 20, 1900.
WOMEN CAN HI1LI.
Now as never before shoulJ the women
of the city come lo the assistance of tjieir
ss. Hundreds of women ;md children
have been made homeless, and to-night
have nothing but the clothes on their
backs to protect them.
The men are doing w tint the can, but
at best It Is Impossible for them to give
more than passing attention to the needs
of these people. A woman's corps of
helpers Is absolutely necessary. What
though the women are Asiatics? they are
human, they must be cared for. Their
children areas dear to them, and the small
comforts that can be rencleied are as neces
sary, as In the best homes of the country.
What the next twenty-four hours ineins
to these homeless people words can hardly
picture, but their sufferings can be largely
alloyed If the good wemen will lend their
effort to the great task of relief which is
now the duty of the hour.
If a million dollars Is needed to stop
the progress of tho plnguo, let tho mll
llono be expended. A gunrairteo for
tho safety of the community Is oh cup
at twice a million dollars.
The loss of Kaumakaplll Is ono of tho
great misfortunes that often follow In
tho wake of good woik accomplished
by means of flie. If Honolulu does not
huvo more similar losses bcfoie tho
purification of Chinatown Is completed
Jt will be lucky. After nil nothing has
been destroyed that money will not re
place and It Is better that Kaumakaplll
or nny other public edifice should go
rather tiinn allow llfo to be menaced by
siirroundlug filth. Men of tho tiro de
partment have dono all that Is within
the power of human efforts. None
could do more.
:LOST, 8TRAYED OR STOLEN If
Tho Advettlser this morning makes
the plalnthn wall that Its flics by the
transport Tartar " were either lost,
strajed or stolen Thus it attempts a
weak apology for fnlltuo to funilt.li
Tho fact of the matter Is that -tho
morning paper with Its usual ponder
ous pomposity waited for late papers to
bo offered on a silver platter by the
officers of tho Tmtur. While tho gov.
eminent organ was waiting, the Bulb)'
tin was on tho moo to get tho news
for Its readers, ami tho exclusive fur
-Ign news published In today's paper
Js good evidence of what success attended
There were no tegular tiles on the
transport Tartar ami ovcry newspaper
man In town knows It. Tho captain of
tho Tartar left ono file of papers with
tho pilot boat and tho Ilulletln being
tho only paper having tho enterprlso
to send out a representative with tho
pilots, got the late news.
Today, as Is ever the case, If you
don't havo the Ilulletln, you don't get
tho news till It Is copied by contcm
porailcs. APPROPRIATH THE MO!EY.
There K not the slightest quest I on
that tho Council of Stato stands lendy
to appropriate every dollar needed by
the community In forwarding tho fight
against the plaguo. It Is useless to
discount, however, the great responsi
bility which this body assumes in ap
propriating Immense funds from tho
Tho Council by its action yesterday
showed that It appreciates Its future
responsibility to the peoplo as well as
tho lmmedlato demand. Tho money
will bo appropriated. The Council of
State will not refuse a dollar that is
required in dealing with tho present
situation. This body, however, la not
called upon, It Is not Justified In acting
upon, tho mero say so of the Executive
Council. It Is n business proposition In
which every member ot tho Council of
tatflt should havo full knowledgo of
eYry"dtal!. This is mandatory.
Health calls should be and wo bcllovo
will be appropriated by the unanimous
vote of the Council this nttornoon.
The twenty-four hours delay asked for
Investigation does not Increase the dangers
of the Btttiatlon. The Are department
has not yet caught up with tho work
set for It In destroying Chinatown
shacks and several days must neces
sarily olapso before It reaches the de
struction oi goods. Mcnnwhlto the
Council of State makes n thorough In
vestigation of the financial situation
with which It has to deal, In order that
tho balance sheets may not be subject
to question when tho final accounting
Our ofllclals must not run nway with
tho Idea that tho emergencies of tho
situation mnko less necessary n strict
accounting for every uollar expended.
Spend tho money nnrt spend It liber
ally. If tho Hoard of Health cnlls for
moio, glvo It, but sco to It that llber
nllty of expenditure docs not result In
nny lnx methods of accounting.

A Chinese Superstition'
and a Royal Argument
Ou tlic day tho Leglslatuio of 1S80
opened, tho wiltcr and a citizen now
bomo years dead wcro looking at tho
ruins of some small buildings burned
on the esplanade tho plevjoun night,
it was soon after tne great lira that
wiped out most of Chinatown. The two
persons mentioned were accosted at
tho place Indicated by a well-known
merchant and lice planter, who pro
tcfdeit to glvo n h trail go theory of tho
Inflations of fire.
Hn pointed nuioss town to Kaumaka
plll church mid lugubriously observed:
"We have plllkla always so long two
splren that chinch. They mako big
fliii L.tluatoiMi, and now all same an
other Hero bore. Plenty plllkla till
they tnko ono splro down."
It would bu cm Ions to Investigate, In
connection with today's events, wheth
er tho superstitious Chlncso tried to
lnduco their Josses to hoodoo tho fire
men nnd tho water -works against sav
ing tho church with it two malefic
Another interesting remlnlsccnco of
Kaumakaplll church Is that of a speech
by King Kalaknua. Tho lamented, go
nial sovereign was assisting one Sun
day at a booming of tho building fund.
He talked ngnlnst any presumed objec
tion to the twin spires on the ground
of cxtravagancp, arguing Hint tho dual
ity of construction was In harmony
with characteristics of tho human form
illvlno. "Men havo two legs, two arms,
two eyes and two ears," ho king argu
ed, "nnd it is fitting that our new
church should havo spires pointing
heavenward." This Is quoted from
memory, but tho curious will find tho
speech repoitcd In newspapers it tho
