TUESDAY JANUARY .10. 1901).
The object of some' of Mr. Dote'H
(liientions asked nt tho Hoard of Health
meeting yesterday Is as big n mystery
an Manager l'nln's failure to stait his
Not tho least Interesting aftermath
of tho Advertiser's tirade against V.
1. Johnson Is the fact that tho letter
written by U A. Thurston to Inspec
tor !'. J. Cross was never seen by Mr.
Cross until he read It In tho Advertiser.
Manager llallentyno's report to tho
Rnpld Transit Company Is pi oof posl
tlvo that his company has come to
stay whatever tho outcome of tho King
street track laying light. With over
$100,000 ahcady Invested and con
' tracts under way that will call for
double this amount of expendltuie, the
situation Is such that tho company
cannot afford to withdraw should It so
In view of tho fact that tho Drill
Shed camp has been freo from any se
rious sickness, It seems quite unneces
sary that the people held In detention
should undergo additional quarantine
at the Kallhl camp. As arrangements
can be made for tho necessary fumiga
tion of clothing at tho present camp,
President Wood has acted wisely In not
forcing these peoplo to go to tho
trouhle and the government to the ex
pense of moving again before they are
It Is not to be supposed that the or
Kan of tho local ofllclal faction will
mipport any movement to obtain labor
for Hawaii among Russians or any
other nationality outsldo tho ranks of
tho Asiatic coolie. Like tho broad
minded ruleis of Russia, from whoso
book of government our local officials
havo taken many suggestions, tho peo
ple easily driven to their task havo first
place. Tho experience with tho Gal
lclans was an unpleasant ono In n
single Instance only. That tho local
government did not cover Itself with
glory In dealing with tho situation Is
not necessarily n rellectlon on tho Chil-
Hcinns or white labor In general. The
government simply showed Its lack of
capacity to deal with white men. Tho
day Is not far distant when tho con
sideration of white labor In Hawaii
will hao to bo something more than
perfunctory words without action.
HILO'8 STUMBLING BLOCK.
HIIo's deslio to manage the wholo
Island of Hawaii seems to bo the stum
bling block which now prevents Dele
gate Uiebensteln from securing n per
fect understanding with tho local au
thorities It would really be Interest
ing If not valuable for Hllo to explain
why it torces all steamers with freight
for other districts to call (list nt Hllo
before landing their cargoes. Hllo ad
mltH that It has no means for fumlgat-
ing cargoes. Do our fellow citizens
honestly believe that anything Is sain
ed by a steamor from Honolulu re
maining In Hllo harbor a stated num
ber of days before proceeding to un
load on tho Kona side? Tho city of tho
big Island most certainly has a right to
Important recognition In tho commer
cial world, but It will not guln prestige
locally or abroad by forcing upon the
shippers n lot of unnecessary if not
foolish regulations, which aro not, ns n
matter of fact, measures giving tho
outsldo districts gunrantoo of greater
. safety from tho introduction of In
fected freight. .
Hllo'a apparent attitude that Honolu
lu seeks to force it into a position of
greater danger Is sheer nonsense Tho
Citizens' Committee proposition Is an
excellent ono, yet tho committeo will bo
worse than useless If It organizes with
a view of immedlato antagonism to lo
cal authority. As cooperation was and
Is tho first guaranteo of success in tho
struggle to stamp out tho plaguo in
Honolulu, it is equally mandatory for
all uio outsldo districts to work along
tne same lines. Returns from Maui and
Kauai indicato that Hawaii nlone Is
the "ption to the rule.
Response made by tho merchants
of tho street to tho proposition for the
organization of a .Merchants' Associa
tion shows that very little urfiin Is
necessary to start the ball rolling.
Tho necessity for tho organization of
mercantile Interests has long been
manifest. Wide nwako business men
coming from other cities havo been
surprised that our business community
locked this evidence of progress Our
own merchants In their trips abroad
have seen the advantages gained In
nearly every city of the United States
by tho Independent organization of tho
The Merchants' Association Is not
antagonistic to tho Chamber of Com
merce. It rather adds to tho pro
gressive force of business Interests and
secures the complete cooperation of the
iimnller houses, which nt tho picsent
time have comparatively llltlo In
i.ucnce with tho larger and more pow
erful firms which naturally c.erelso a
controlling force. In nearly every city
of tho United States, from New York
with its millions to the cities of twen-ty-llvo
thousand, the Merchants' As
sociation or Hoard of Trado Is found an
active and beneficent factor both In
Its lclatlons with the ndmlnlstfntlon or
public affairs and with tho purely busi
ness relations of merchant houses. In
an eastern city of about 30,000 Inhabi
tants, the mei chants for yenis had
sought to roach some agreement i da
tive to closing hours. They found It
Impossible to icach a decis.on by In
dependent action or through tho Cham
ber of Commerce. Tho Merchants' As
sociation was eventually formed and
within n few months the dlfllcultles
arising through difference of opinion as
to the hours for opening and closing
stores were settled to tho complete
satisfaction of all tho smaller mer
chants. This Is merely one of ninny Instances
which might be noted where organiza
tion has secured more satisfactory re
lations among competing business
houses. Tho small matters which often
hnrasstho tradesmen nre frequently put
aside ns of not sulllclcut Importance to
warrant serious attention of wholesale
mercantile Interests. Yet these little
mntters aro what go to make dally
business llfo and mnko It either dis
agreeable or generally satisfactory.
Plans for Grave of
Jobn Paul Jones
At the present moment the most
talked about American In Paris Is n
certain John Paul Jones. It may be
remembered that a long time ago he
sailed tho llonhommo Richard Into a
notable sea fight and captured two
After tho battle of Manila, when
Dewey's name was on every Up. the
Government nt Washington remember
ed that other heroic tar, and sent this
messago to Ambassador Horace Por
ter, In Paris: "Find out whero John
Paul Jones Is burled."
General Porter thought It would be
wry simple. All tho histories and
biographies seemed to ho agreed that
John Paul Jones was buried in the fa
mous cemetery of Pero la Chaise. An
investigation of tho records of the
cemetery disclosed tho fact that four
Joneses, all Americans, were buried
there, but no one of them could bo
Identified with tho sen fighter of tho
Revolution. It was at this point that
Mr. Inmnu Harnard, tho Paris corres
pondent of tho Now York Tribune, was
called in. Ho knows his Paris better
than most Parisians. Tho search for
tho giaro of John Paul Jones began to
take on eplu proportions. Tho com
missioners at Vleux Paris, dusty old
gentlemen who live In tho past, and aro
uncannily learned, were brought Into
tho Investigation. They tumbled over
ancient documents and followed all
sorts of deluslvo clews, but they could
not find that century-old tomb. For
tunntely, Mr. Barnard bethought him
of Albert do Rlcaudy. Monsieur do
RIcnudy Is nn old nobleman who has
mndo n special study of those short and
glorious years when Franco and tho
United Stntea wero allies fighting for
liberty by land nnd sen. Tho history of
John Paul Jones was as familiar to
him ns tho way from his plpo rack to
lil i easy choir.
John Paul Jones died In I'm is, July
18. 17W. Two hi)s later ho was burled
"lu tho presence of n brilliant nssom
blago," tho old iccords soy. Thcro wero
only threo Amerlcnns present, nono of
them In an oinclal capacity. They
wero mere passing strangers, only ono
of whom is known by name "Grlinth
And whero was Paul Jones burled?
"Grimth of Philadelphia" noted tho
fact that It was In "tho llttlo Protestant
cemetery." With this as n clow, M. do
Racaudy and Mr. 'Ilarnnrd had little
uimcuity in discovering tho site,
(Tliero wero not many Protestant
cemeteries In Paris in thoso days
aays or mo -uotiuess of Reason," and
other quasi-scientific vagaries.) It oc
cupied a llttlo spaco out beyond the
Hospital St. Louis, nt tho corner of two
streets known (picturesquely enough)
as tho Ruo Orange nux Relics and the
Ruo des Kclusea St. Martin. Long ago
tho llttlo cemetery disappeared. Today

would bo insignificant. Tho Pa 'Is au
thorities liavn Intimated that they
