Tlie Advertiser "extra" was replete
with forelRii news copied from Saturday's
The situation need not Increase the fears
of the community nor cause over confi
dence. Keep cool and work.
TheUULLUTIN Roes to all Its subscrib
ers this evening. In days like the present
we believe our subscribers have first
right to the facts of the situation.
Tlie HULLUTIN acknowledRes the court
esy of the Hawaiian Gazette Company
inanater and employes of the mechanical
department for recent fax ors asked on ac
count of the failure of electrical power.
Considering the dangers of the situation
Saturday the majority of the Asiatic popu
lation conducted themselves admirably.
Itxvasthe mutterings of a few malcon
tents that made temporarily harsh meas
ures an apparent necessity.
Dr. Wood's remarks enrry assurance to
the community. Tlie community is
aroused, but It must continue at concert
pitch until the last vestige of danger is
w'ped out. Atoney and effort must con
tinue to le expended with a liberal hand.
Tlie prompt response of the United
States military authorities was a quieting
Influence on the situitlon deserving of
more than passing attention. Appearance
of United States soldiery gave new con
ii Jence to the people feaaful of rioting, and
promptly put an end to all thoughts of
rushing the guards, an action that appear
ed as a possibility among a few obslrepu
ous characters of Chinatown. Further
more the action of Col. Mills placed the
additional guard duty in experienced
hands, and gave tlie Citizens' Committee
Hie men sadly needed In forwarding
measures of relief.

Now as never before should the women
of the city come to the assistance of their
sex. Hundreds of women and children
luxe been maJe homeless, and to-night
have nothing but the clothes on their
backs to protect them.
1 he men are doing xx hat they 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 tlie women are Asiatics? they are
human, thev must bs cared for. Their
children areas dear to them, and the small
comforts that can be rendered are as neces
sary, as In tlie btst homes of the country.
What the next twenty-four hours meins
to these homeless people xvords can hardly
picture, but their sufferings can be largely
alloyed if tlie good wemen will lend their
effort to the great task of relief which Is
now the duty of tlie hour.

EVERV MAN LEND A HAND.
Wind and fire did the work of destroy
ing Chinatown xvitli neatness and uncon
trolled despatch. Few view tlie smolder
ing embers of the Infected houses with
erlous regret . The hundreds of families
made homeless by tlie fire however, fcrce
a problem upon the town and a serious res
ponsibility upon every household that
has the means to furnish relief. A more
pitiful sight than that of Saturday when
these people xveie driven from their homes
by fire can hardly be Imagined. Husl
ness men responded nobly to the emer
gency, and it Is to the everlasting credit
of the authorities that the work of mov
ing the fugatlues from the burning dis
trict was dom without the loss of a single
life or serious Injuries.
As soon as the women of the city learn
ed of the situation, their response was Im
mediate. Volunteers w ere numerous and
there g hardly a home In the town from
which some assistance has not been offer
ed. Where cbaos reigned on Saturday
prompt organization Is now at work fur
nishing relle and proper accommodation
with all the speed possible. Church bells
are stilled, but the people are engaged In
Christian- work that needs no proclama

An afternoon paprr of l:riday made
reference to a King street sub-Inspector,
aiieRinp tn.it lie did ins inspection over
the telephone. Here are the particulars In
the case: The sub-Inspector went his
regular afternoon round of houses In the
block bounded by King, Pllkol, Young
and Keeaumoku streets. All the people
with the exception of a man and his wife
from one house, and a lady from another
house near by, wer found to be at home.
Later on he saw thes peoplt go by his
house In their carriages, all three looking
hnls and hearty. In a mlnuU h. tele
phoned over, asked afUr their health, and
received th answer h expected: "AH
well." He had seen the people with his
owa eyes and did not consider that it
was necessary for him to go over to their
places again, particularly since he had
seen all the others In the houses nnd found
everything In ship-shape form.
Married Last Night.
The marriage of Miss Margaret Kennedy
and L. Tlmmon' WJ celebrated last
venlng In the parlors of the Catholic Mis'
slon Rer. Father Valentine officiating.
The bride Is the daughter of Mrs. Mar
garet and th late Mark Kennedy and tht
groom one of tht bt known of tht local
ewspaper scrlbti, and a Bimbtr'tf tht
Hawaiian Star staff.
An insurance agent, met white the lire
was raging declared emphatically that
the companies would pay no losses In the
burnt district. They were protected by
the clause shutting out claims for Insured
property burned by "act (jf civil authority."
"Thereare millions lost In that fire," said
an Insurance man in ja group on King
street yesterday. When his statement
was answered by an expression of surprise
at such a tremendous estimate, he said his
companies held risks tnlckly all through
the district. "I have jjo.oco In a single
building there," he remarked as a clincher.
"I hope the Bulletin will call upon the
Insurance companies to do the right thing,"
remarked a property dwner In National
Guard uniform at the fire. "They ought
to pay at least half their risks, notwith
standing the saving chuses of the polices.
"Exorbitant premiums have been charg
ed on the ground of exceptional risk, all
over Chinatown. If the companies de
cllno to adopt a liberal course In this emer
gency, they ought to be driven out of the
country. Yes, the propeity owners here
would be able to protect themselves
through a scheme of mutual insurance."
A member of the Underwriters' Asso
ciation told a reporter tjils morning that a
summing up of the losses In Chinatown
from the sanitary tires could not be got
ready for two or three days.
A prominent member of a house having
lire agencies said that the companies It
represented had for years accepted no risks
