Tho community Is Indeed surprised
when Dr. Ulsliop states that ho lin
seen a sea serpent. Knowing Dr. Bish
op's strict tempcrnnco principles, It
may be after nil that a sea serpent is a
Aro tho former denizens of Pauahl
street tho Japanese thugs and black
mailers to be allowed to continue
their business In Honolulu? Tho au
thorities have no right to let them
loose on the respectable Japancso com
munity. While there Is nothing In the de
liberations of Congress to cause Ha
waii to bo fearful, the situation Is such
that there Is small prospect of our ter
ritorial bill being enacted beforo tho
first or middle of April. Senator Piatt's
amendments to the bill relative t(
tariff laws aro likely to make tho Un
official Delegate feel dubious, yet
Piatt's attitude Is not new or neces
sarily of serious portent. It Is tho re
appearance of the old time opposition
to tho reciprocity treaty and from the
samo source. Piatt is likely to be Join
ed by Alilrlch of Hliolo Island and the
usual forces within Congressional halls
disposed to favor tho claims of tho su
gar men. Tho apparent opposition Is
not nB strong as In the days of tho reci
procity treeaty. The bill will be passed
but the pcoplo must make up their
minds to wait patiently.
(Mo dispatches from tho Tranvaal
war Indicate" that the outcome of Bul
ler's great advanco for tho relief of
Ladysmltk is still hanging In the bal
ance. British forces succeeded in
cioeslng tho Tugcla river without op
position, tho Boer plan apparently be
ing to lead their opponents on to a
better fortified position. Tho latest dis
patch to tho effect that Gen. Warren
has gained a tremendous advantage by
the occupation of Spion Kop, a strate
gic Boer stronghold, carries with it
much the same feeling aroused by
itcthuen'fl "victory" at Moddcr river.
Tho story will not be complete till tho
list of casualties is published. Bai
ler's message has every evidence of
having been prepared with a view to
making London ready for tho fearful
cost ot llfo at n hich tho advnntagp was
secured. Whether Warren Is In a con
dition to hold his advantage has yet
to bo learned.
THE AMERICAN POLICY.
Again tho Bulletin's policy regarding
the position ot Washington authori
ties has been endorsed by the action of
tho President. Authorization to spend
money nccdod for Btamplng out tho
plaguo and carrying out sanitary Im
provements demonstrates tho utter
nonsenso ot Mr. Dole's proposition to
call tho Legislature In extra session.
Tho Council of State has tho power to
act and the authority given It by tho
President Is sufficient to cnablo tho
peoplo of tho Islands to cono with such
problems as may bo presented previous
to the organization of tho Territory.
Tho discussion of what to do with
Chinatown held beforo tho Executive
Council Is valuable In Its Way, but
seems a useless expenditure of time
and energy. Tho reconstruction of
Chinatown Is a problem that calls for
deliberate thought and careful con
sideration of minor details ns well as
suggestlons'from leading business nnd
professional men. Necessity having
arisen for rapid destruction, tho Im
portance of building on broad lines for
.tho futuro is self evident.
Tho Executlvo Council has enough
on Its hands without attempting to at
tend to tho details of crystallizing nub
ile opinion on the plans to bo followed
In rebuilding tho city. Every Tom,
Dick nnd Harry has an opinion, all of
which nro valuable. It Is not for the
Executlvo Council, however, to sift
theso opinions. Tho problom now bo
fore the city Is n matter of sufficient
Importance to warrant tho appointment
of a special commission composed of
business and professional men of
standing and experience. Tho work
cannot bo done in n day. With active,
public spirited men composing a com
mission to listen to various suggestions
and Investigate the situation tho work
can be dono better, quicker and In a
moro business like mannor than by oc
casional hearing beforo tho Executive
The first Chinatown Commission did
good work and the principle still holds

Rcgulai.on to Keep
Out Bubouic P.'ague
Washington, Jan. 17. Secretary
(age has approved a set of regulations
prepared under the supervision of Sur
geon General Wyman of tho Marino
hospital service, for tho prevention of
the introduction of the bubonic plague
into tho United States and its' depen
dencies. They describe In detail tho
practices to bo followed by olllcers of
tho Marine hospital servlco in dealing
with tho personnel nnd effects of ar
riving nn'i departing vessels and with
the disinfection and cleansing ot tho
ships thenibclvcs nnd ore supplemental
to the regulations prescribed by tho
Marine hospital bureau when tho
plague made Its appcaranco at Portu
gal and Santos, Brazil. Persons ot
plaguo Infected vessels will bo detain
ed under observation fifteen days from
tho least possible exposition to Infec
tion. The body of no person dead of
plague shall bo allowed to pass t
quarantine, but shall be cremated If
Passengers should not bo vacclnnted
nt or en route from places Infected, ns
such practice Increases tho liability to
plaguo Infection. Animal pets should
not bo shipped from a plaguo Infected
or suspected place. It a Vessel has
been disinfected nt the port of depar
ture and tho personnel bathed nnd
their bodies, clothing and baggage dis
infected as required, and all other
treasury regulations compiled with,
and If no suspicious caso has occurred
en route, tho vessel, In tho discretion
ot the quarantine officer, may have the
time ot the voyago deducted from the
tlmo of detention. No person from on
Infected or suspected port shall bo ad
mitted Into tho United States until
fifteen days have elapsed under obser
vation cither nt tho port of departure,
at sea, or port of arrival, except that a
first class cabin passenger, bearing a
certificate ot non-cxposuro to Infection
for fifteen days Immediately preceding
embarkation may bo admitted without
detention. All pnssengcrs, except first
cabin passengers, shall bo bathed nnd
their body clothing disinfected beforo
Prospect for Extension
of Tariff Laws
Now Yoilc, Jun. 22. A special to tho
Herald from Washington says: Rep
resentative Payne's bill to extend tho
customs and internal revenue laws of
the United huitcs over tho Island of
orto Rico will bo considered by tho
House Committee on Ways nnd Means
during tho present week. All tho Re
publican members of the committee,
and probably Representative Newlands
will vntn in ronnrl thn hill fnvnrnltlv
K s not certain, however, that tho re
port will bo mado this week, as botn
tho majority nnd minority will probab
ly wish to prepare statements on tho
constitutional question Involved.
Tho bill extending revenuo laws over
Hawaii is also.to bo advanced ns rapid
ly as possible. It Is not intended by
Congress that any of tho insular pos
sessions of tho United States, except
Porto Rico nnd Hawaii, sholl be
brought Into tho revenue system of tho
Tho present policy of tho Adminis
tration nnd of tho leaders in Congress
is to have tho Philippines permanently
retain tholr own tariff against tho
United States and all other countries,
giving all other nations the samo trndo
advantages that nro enjoyed by tho
United States, In accordance with tho
"open door" principle. Under tho
treaty with Spain tho United States is
obliged to maintain this system for ten
years at least.
Chinese New Year ntihe Camps.
Tho Chinese children In tho various
detention camps were not forgotten
during tho Chincso New Year season.
Dr. T. ST. Song, Chan Chow, Look Mong
Wall and Leong Yow succeeded In col
lecting quito a sum of money which
was expended In providing toys, etc.,
for tho children's amusement. It Is
needless to say tho youngsters very
much enjoyed tho unexpected treat.
The gentlemen nnraed are very grnto
ful for the kindness shown their little
countrymen and women. The children
aro still handicapped for want of suffi
cient clothing. Any donations along
that lino will bo gladly received. FTir

Port Townsend, Wash., Jan. 19. Ac
cordlngto advices from Washington re
ceived hero today tho Introduction of
the bubonic plague at Honolulu was
by means of merchnndlso arriving at
that port from tho Orient. It! Is be
lieved that tho germs of tho disease
wero carried in dirt in which .plants.
wcro shipped nnd niso in a sort of mucK
composed of dirt and manure In' which
duck eggs wcro packed In China and
shipped both to Honolulu ant) this
country. So strong is tho belief; ot the
department that It was by these' means
tho disease was Introduced, that Dr.
Foster, United States Quarantine Offi
cer here, has been instructed ,by- tho
department to mnko a thorough in
