terday bearing a communication from
tho Health Committee at Hllo which
was sent to President Wood yesterday
afternoon. Mr. Loebcnsteln comes as
tho delegato of that body and this
morning nls official communication
was sent to the Hoard of Health. In an
Interview over tho sldo of tho Kilauca
Hou this morning Mr. Loebcnsteln had
the following to say to a Bulletin re
porter: "At u meeting of tho Health Com

"My mission is partly to correct tho

shows that thcro Is a unity of feeling.

"In my communication I expressed
the hope that tho strict quarantine In
regard to steamers from this port
would bo continued. The pooplo on our
Island aro fully in accord with this. I
also made the request that only such
goods as machinery, rice transshipped
- from the other Islands, corn, mall,
foodstuffs and grain from clruti ships,
bo sent to Hllo.
"I further requested that all vessels

iff Andrews. There is no doubt that ho
acted from conscientious motives but
ho was 111 advised. The Insistence on
his part to control tho trnfllc of tho
whole island by regulations established
by himself was without tho consent of
tho outside districts.
"I remonstrated with Mr. Andrews
and told him that such measures as
ho had presumed to issuo could not be
carried out unless tho consent of all
parties was first obtained. '1 hen it was
that tho request for delegates fror
tho districts was made and C. O. Ken

Hllo. After meeting Mr. Cooper on
tho Pathfinder we olected tho members
of this commltteo. Tho statement that
thcro was a ack of harmony between
tho different elements, mado by Mr.
Cooper, was entirely erroneous. I be

that the sale was postponed until 12

DEATH OP WILLING CHILD

Citizens' Sanitary Committee, an exact
copy ot which is as follows:
Honolulu, Jan. 26, 1900.
This morning at 2 a. m., or thoro
nbouts, Mr. Carl Willing, who lives in
tho premises adjoining mine, came to
my house and requested mo to tele
phone a doctor as his little girl, aged
about 2, was very ill; ho did not know
what was the troublo with her and I
thought it best to telephone tho Board
ot Health, which 1 did; n doctor (whom
I subsequently found was Dr. Jobo)
arrived and said tho girl did not havo

as ho was only employed to treat such
cases, but he said ho would send out
another doctor, but no doctor arrvled,
until this morning, at about 7 o'clock,
wo telephoned to Dr. Miner who Im
mediately came out, but the child had
died, and the doctor could not ascer
tain tho cause of the chlld'B death and
declined to issuo a certificate ot death.
I again telephoned tho Board ot Health,
requesting thnt a doctor bo sent out to
ascertain the cause, of tho child's death,
but after waiting three quarters of an

across, whether It was plaguo or cold."
I would llko to ask If any person,
whether doctor or layman, who nnd the
least spark of humanity In his system,
would havo refused to render assist
ance to the sick and dying, or would
havo deserted this sick and dying child
without having mado soma effort to

the child until nnother physician had
