JUDGE PERRY MAKES REPLY
He Went to the House
Stood Outside While Inspector Went Through
the House Heard ol Threats Made
Disqualification of Judges.
J ud go Perry has marto tho following
statement relatlvo to his dealings with
. Attorney Crclghton:
Tho facts concerning tho subject of
I Mr. Charles Crelghton's communica
tion, which appeared In tho Evening
Bulletin of Saturday last, are ns fol
I '. lows:
; ' 1 In his closing address to tho Court
Ion Friday last In tho trial of tho enso
of n defendant charged with changing
his placo of nbodo In violation of tho
legulatlons of tho Doard of Health, Mi.
Crclghton mado tho boast thnt tiono of
tho sub-Inspectors of tho CUlzous"
Sanitary Coramlttco had yet entered
or would daro to enter his houo nnd
' stated that ho had warned tho sub-
' Inspector of tho district In which ho re
sides that It he, tho sub-Inspector,
should enter his, Crelghton's, houso
without his permission, it would bo at
the peril of his life.
, t Upon hearing this statement, I pro-
I' -reeded to mako an investigation and
ascertained from Mr, Llghtfoot, tho In
spector of tho district In question, that
, Mr. Crelghton had in fact snld to him
i a few days ago that It tho sub-Inspector
I should enter his residence without his
permission it would be nt his peril and
that Mr. Crclghton on that occasion
talked of shooting. It will bo lntero3t-

II Mr. Crelghton's statement In tho com-
f " timnlnnHnn roforrnrl in F linvn tinVAr
denied or attempted to obstruct tho In
spector of my district." ,
Mr. Llghttoot further Informed mo
that slnco tho giving of that no'.lco no
room to room Inspection of that house
had been mado as Is required by tho
general instructions of tho Commltteo
to Its inspectors nnd sub-inspectors.
These facts having been reported by
juo to severa. other members of tho
Committee, who happened to bo nt lib
headquarters during the day, nil ngrco
I'd with mo thut tho samo piocodiire
should bo followed In this ense as had
been followed In at least two similar
cases where objoctlou hud boon made
to Inspection of every room in tho
dwelling. In pursuance ot thlj udvlco,
I procured from President Wood ot
tho Doard ot Health, lato in (lie itrtcr
noon, a commission for Mr. K. W. Uus
. sell, tho sub-Inspector In aural Ion, as
agent of tho Board of Health.
On tho following morning at 8 o'clock
I sent a messago to Mr. Crelghton nsk
lng him to kindly bo nt home nt halt
past eight as I desired to seo him thero
nt that hour. My object In doing this
was to avoid tho possibility ot any
claim being subsequently mado by Mr.
Crelghton that I had ehofcn for tho
Inspection n tlmo when I knew that ho
would not bo at homo nnd vrlion his
wife would be nlono and pov iloss to
, At half past eight Mr. Llghtfoot, Mr.
llussell nnd myself met by appointment
and went to Mr. Crelghton's residence
To tho latter gentleman, when ho nad
awaited at tho door, our business was
promptly stated. I said to lilin that
Mr. Hussell was a sub-Inspector under
tho Citizens' Sanitary Commltteo nnd
that ho nlso held n commission ns
)- ; ngem 01 mo uoaru 01 imuui; umt j.
f had been informed that no 100m to
nim InoliAflHnll ft t h n t l-nallllitlPA flflfl
IUUIII l,,Pl'll.W.. Ui .....V . .-..-...w mm.
been mado for sovoral days laBt past
In conscquenco ot n threat mado by
him, Mr. Crelghton, to cither Mr. ltus-
sel or Mr. klghtfoot that it tno suo
luspcctor should attempt to enter his
houso without his permission ho would
do so at his peril (at this point Mr.
Crelghton said that It was to Mr.
Mghtfoot that ho had mado this state
ment; that tho commltteo could not
pcimlt tho making of any exceptions
In tho matter of Inspection, and that
tho sub-Inspector then present pro
posed to Inspect forthwith c fry room
in Mr. Crelghton's house.
Mr. Crelghton, having Inquired
whether wo had any search-warrant
and having received nn answer in tho
negative, said that ho denied that we
had any authority to make an inspec
tion of his residence and therefore en
tered a formal protest against uuch In
spection. I replied thnt tho protest
was noted, nnd asked him whether Mre.
Crelghton had nrlsen and was out of
he'r room. His nnswer was In the
affirmative. Then further Inquiry was
mado of Mr. Crclghton at (ho tlmo
whether Mr. Russell had been guilty of
anv uncentlemanly conduct on tho cc
caslon of any of his visits ns sub-Inspector,
and tho reply was that ho had
I then requested Mr. Russell to In
spect overy room in tho houso, This
ho proceeded to do, returning In n few
moments wuh tho report that ho had
completed tho Inspection. Mr, Light
foot and I roraalncd In tho front ver
anda nil of tho tlmo nnd took no pnrt
In tho actual inspection. As wo loft,
Mr. Crclghton Informed us that ho
would Bcek legal advice ns to means
ot redress for his alleged grievance.
Tho entire Interview was quiet and
pleasant, so far us outward appearances
wero concerned, nnd nothing dlsagreo
nble was said or dono by any ono of
My solo object In accompanying tho
sub-Inspector was to seo that tho com
mittee's Instructions wero carried out
and to hear nnd seo personally from
Mr. Crclghton what his objections were
and what resistance ho would offer.
As to my disqualification and that ot
Judgo Stanley assuming that tho lat
ter is also disqualified depriving the
defendant in tho trial above mentioned
of tho right of appeal, Mr. Crelghton's
complaint Is groundless. As Is well
known to a., who aro familiar with tho
Hawaiian statutes, his right of appeal
remains unnbrldgcd for ono of tho Cir
cuit Judges of tho other Circuits can bo
requested nnd nuthorlzcd by ono ot
tho Justices of tho Supremo Court to
prcsido at tho trial of tho caso, and this
without additional cost to the appel
lant. Tho provision referred to hns
been freely taken ndvantngo of here
tofore by litigants under slmllnr cir
cumstances. A. PERRY,

PLAGUE IN ALEXANDRIA
Hakes New Appearance After Several
Report of United States Consul Reward for
Reporting Cases-Contagion Apparently
Not Carried by Contact.
American Consul Robert P. Skinner
stationed at Marseilles sent to tho Stato
Department under dato ot July, 1899,
n report describing the plnguo In
Alexandria, Egypt. Hl3 report, which
contains many details ot similarity
with tho local situation, is as follows:
Tho epidemic neither Increases nor
diminishes. Ono or two new cases aro
reported nlmost dally, with occasion
al intervals when none nre reported. A
fact worthy of remark slnco tho out
break of tho plague Is that tho ills
easo docs not seem to bo propogntcJ
by direct contnet. There Is no record
of repented cases In tho same house.
Immediately upon tho sending to tho
hospital of Individuals suspected to
have tho plague, all those who havo
been allowed to approach them, and
especially those who hnvo Inhabited
tho same houses, nre sent to a lazaret
outside tho city. It seems Inexplicable
thnt no suspected case has broken out
among theso who nro known to havo
been In direct contact with Individuals
now down with the disease.
Tho malady seems to nttnek certnln
classes of persons. Until now nlmost
ns many Greeks as natives havo been
tnken with It. At the most ono or two
wives of natives have been attacked.
As to tho Greeks, most of tho crbcs are
young children of 1.1 to 14 years ot ngo,
grocers' delivery boys usually, and
never more thnn 30 years of age. This
Bcems most extraordinary. Tho hypo
thesis that tho dlscaso has been carried
by comestibles seemi most unlikely,
bocmibo cases of plague hnvo occurred
nmoug those who certainly did not use
products bought of tho grocers.
In a total of about twenty cases
among the natives, about ten police
guard. who nro Included, who took tho
contagion In tho houses Infected, The
others now sick nre scattered In nil
quarters of tho City between which the.
corelntlon seems to exist. Considera
tions such ns tho foregoing create in
somo minds doubt as to whether tho
mnhtdy now prevailing Is really the
Tho municipality nnd tho sanitary
service of tho city display tireless zeal
tu the present situation. Measures of
prevention hnvo been tnken on every
hand. Tho city Ib divided Into quar
ters, nnd nt tho head of each aio two
physicians. Visits nro mado to homes
of natives, nnd Invalids suspected nro
Immediately removed to tho hospitals,
nnd tho most mlnuto precautions nro
then tnken to prevent tho spread of dis
ease from tho suspected habitation. As
I have explained, all thoso who havo
been In contact with the suspect arc
sent to a lazaret.
In order thnt too gieat n hardship
may not bo Imposed, nil persons put
Into qunrantlno nnd thus prevented
from working aro paid 11 small sum
dally. By this courso families ot sus
pects nre kept In n state ot content
ment. A premium of 2 francs (38 cents) Is
given to any individual who will In
form tho authorities of cases or plague,
nnd n premium ot 1 franc (19 cents) is
offered for tho head of overy rat dead
of tho plague. Until tho present, no
body has claimed this last premium.
Tho prlzo Is too small to nttarct men
who might othorwlso tnko tho conse
quences of coming Into contact with
tho disease. Although tho natives aro
skeptical as to tho contraction of dls
caso from rats, they aro not courago
ous enough to run tho risk ot danger.
