Mr. Loobcustcln's farewell Is couched
In courteous tones that bespeak tho
satisfied spirit of a faithful servant
who hns completed bis task. Really
LoebciiBteln Is always happiest when
HtruBglinfi with a tough proposition.
tl behooves the people of Honolulu
to bco to It that Aula park Is not lost
in tho Bhulllo occasioned by recon
structing Chinatown. Theio Is spaco
enough to accommodate large recrea
tion Rromuls In the midst of tho new
business section and the reconstruction
should lie modern In every respect.
Increased length of tho Clrcut Court
inlendar gives a slight Indlcn tlon of
calendar gives a slight Indication of
where tho lawyers come in for profits
growing out of annexation. New law
yers who headed In this direction In
anticipation of Increased litigation be
gin to express hopes for the future.
With tho returns coming In from tho
largest crop of sugar Hawaii over pro
duced, tho prospects of n Rcneral finan
cial crash In Honolulu were never more
remote. It Is tho mercantile class with
whom tho restrictions on trado full
with most sevcro force. Thus Is tho
necessity of tho Binall merchants act
Ing as an organized force mnde mani
fest. Tho wholesaler's Incomo Is as
sured, while tbu rtullcr is lucky If be
makes both ends meet these days.
In the absence of the oulclul func
tions, nlways dear to tho heart of our
local Kxecutlve. Mr. Dole and his
Cabinet might give Hllo's delcgato an
(ifllclnl cull previous to his departure.
Opportunities for displaying official Im
portance wjll soon bo at nn end so far
as present figure heads nru c oncerned.
Mr. l.oebeiiBteiu will unquestionably
bo happy to detail to the people of Ha
waii bow the Kxecutlve carried Itself
Just provlous to Its taking n nllde on
tho olllclnl toboggan chute.
Captain Perkins never expounded n
moro self-evident truth thnu is con
tained in his stntcment that Improve
ments in Hllo huibor will depend on
Hllo's pull In Congress. Getting money
from Congress for harbor Improve
ments Is mighty slow business for such
Important ports as New York and San
Krnnclsco. If thoro Is uny extensive
work authorized for Hllo or Honolulu
harlHirs In the Immediate future Ha
waii will hold the record agalnbt the
most Influential commercial renters of
the United StateB.
Honolulu Is now In much the tunie
position us n convalescent patient do
ing well, but great enro Is necessary to
guard ngaln'st a relapse. As was point
ed out by tho Citizens' Commlttco re
cently, particular caro should bo taken
during tho coming wcoks. Under pres-
eutcondltlons nn Isolated caso of plague
uoed not be of serious Import. Tem
porary carelessness duo to over confi
dence, howovor, may start tho epidemic
worso .nan before. Constant watch
fulness for tho next two weeks will
sottlo tho question.
The people who aro making Manager
l'aln tho object of personal attack aro
tarrying on a needless campaign that
Is winning friends to that gentleman,
ruthor than accomplishing tho object
for which the nttack Is made. Tho peo
plo ot Honolulu are not disposed to
view' tho Tram cars as a thing of beau
ty and Joy forovcr, but thesober minded
citizens bolleve In fair pluy. Mr. Pain
personally carinoi do morn or loss than
tho stockholders of his company de
mand. There are numerous Honolulu
stockholders yet to be heard from.
GIVU 1IIL0 MONEY.
Dclceato Loelienstcln has good rea
son to believe that bis mission has not
been devoid of good results, and that
hojias ijono not n little to clarify tho
nlmosph'ero by clearing up the Btorm
clouds between Honolulu and Hllo.
Mr. l.ofcbonsteln says he Is satisfied
with bis mission. If bo can securo cor
dial endorsement from those he repre
sents, tho repenl of useless regulations
mid hearty cooperation with the local
authorities. cM'ry thoughtful citizen
will Join In tho lovo feast and forget
that Hllo over lost Its bead.
Having reached nn understanding
whereby tho odlrlnl machinery can run
without unnecessary friction, It now
behooves Hllo and tho whole Island of
Hawaii to center its efforts on secur
ing an appropriation for sanitary Im
provements. It Is n fact that Hllo Is
In no position to combat the plague or
any other epidemic. Not a few por
tions of the town furnish us good ex
amples of unsanitary conditions as
Honolulu's Chinatown ever did. No
better time than tho present will offer
to deal with this situation. Hllo has
an opportunity to liroflt by tho mis
takes Honolulu mnde In nllowlng the
business center of tho town to grow up
a heterogeneous mass of Chinese
With tho people thoroughly aroused,
a small amount of money will now se
cure for the people of the big Island the
promotion of Improvements that will
be permanent and of vast Importation
to liilo's futuro us well as supplying
Hllo's iipnenl will likely bo met with
the statement that an emergency docs
not exist henco tho Council of Stale's.
emergency funds cannot be used. It
would seem that Honolulu had gained
BUlllclent experience In walling for tho
emergency to arlso before doliiR any
thing, without forcing the same situa
tion upon Hllo.
HEALTH HOARD MEETING.
At u meeting of the Hoard of Health
yesterday afternoon there were present
tho following: President Wood, At
torney General Cooper, V. J. I.owrey,
F. M. Hatch and Dr. Emerson.
President Wood brought up tho mat
ter of tho Queen hotel lease, saying ho
had received a letter from Rev. Azblll,
the lessee, asking that COO In advance
bo paid down ut onco by tho Hoard of
Health. He had leased the place for
no specified time and, ns there seemed
to bo good Indications that It would
mirdly bo needed further, It might be
well for the Hoard of Health to tako
soino steps toward nllowlng tho placo
to go back to tho lessee.
President Wood stated further that
the only occupants of tho large hotel
building were tho members of a whlto
family from the Palace Square block.
Their tlmo was about up. In tho cot
tago were tho people from tho Board
man house. It was finally decided to
give up the Queen hotel ns soon ns the
period of quarantine of these people
shall have expired.
President Wood spoke of tho Bhack
on Wyllle street to which Quon Fat
Man, ono of the recent plngua victims,
hud been taken by some of his friends.
He bad gone up in the morning and or
dered tho destruction of tho placo by
fire. Tho president's action was ap
proved by tho Hoard.
Messrs. Wakefield and Kaiser of tho
Merchants' Commlttre were present
and placed before tho Hoard n propo
sition to lift the quarantine on the
bulldiiigs on tho Walklkl side of Null
ami street between King and Hotel.
They expressed their willingness to at
tend to tho removal and fumigation of
tho contents of tho places and to assist
In tho work of putting them In a sani
The question of thu cottages ut tho
corner of Kmma and Hcretnnla streets,
occupied for tho most part by Chinese
wns brought up for discussion. Presi
dent Wood stuted that permission to
remove these had been refused on tho
ground that they were unsanitary.
They should bo condemned and the
promises ordered put In a sanltnry con
dition. At this point Attorney Neumann ap
peared on the scene and, being given
permission to speak, stnted that he
represented a Chinaman on Heretanht
stroct near Emma. His client had
made frequent appeals to tho landlord
to have his placo put In a sanitary con
dition but had been flatly refused, this
landlord preferring, for reasons of his
own, to have tho placo condomned.
Then again, tho Inspector who reported
the premises In an unsnnltnry condi
tion is a rclatlvo of tho landlord.
Although no motion was made,
President Wood stnted that Mr. Neu
mann's client would bo given nn oppor
tunity to put his place In a sanitary
President Wood brought up tho
question of tho remaining buildings In
Hlock IS. Tho occupants of these
should certainly bo removed to Kallhl
and theso places burned, ns they wero
closo to tho quarter In Hlock 15 whoro
most of tho cases during tho week pro
vlous to tho big II ro had been found.
Tneu again, thoy wero In Block 1G and
tho wholo of this had already been
condemned. The Doard then voted to
havo tho buildings destroyed by Are.
It was voted to allow Wing Wo Tal's
store to open for business as soon as
all tho partitions upstairs aro torn
