MONDAY FBUUUAUY 5, 1000,
The Hllo lloaid of Health fell to
pieces from Its own ponderous weight.
It now Bccina probahlo that having had
a Bin felt of Independence the people of
the Island of Hawaii will bo nble to ac
complish good work tluough coopera
tion wltn the local authorities.
The review of the plague situation
in Alexandria ghen by United States
Consul Skinner carries nlimble sug
gestions to the people of Honolulu, who
consider that Immunity from now
plague cases for n week or ten days
warrants prompt raising of quarantine.
Constant watchfulness nnd the con
tinuation of radical measures aro tlio
only means by which the disease can
bo kept under control. Over confi
dence during ntemporary lull Is more
to bo feaied than the Injury dono by
restrictions of quarantine.
Judge I'crr's statement of his part
In tlio Crelghton affair may bo regard
ed as satisfactory. Doth sides aro
stated and the people aro free to draw
their own conclusions. The personal
attack made upon Mr. Crelghton by the
Advertiser simply makes a uid matter
worse, by adding coals to the llro of
antagonism to the Citizens' Commit
tee. Cooperation of Intelligent men
cannot bo secured by wielding the
sajidbag. The record stands. Lntll tho
present crisis Is over further discus
sion Is worso than useless.
D18P0SAL OF GARBAGE.
A series of consular reports made to
the State Department on tlio disposal
of garbage In various European cities,
contains many valuable suggestions on
one of tho questions of the hour In Ho
nolulu. Tho decision to establish a
garbage crematory is a progressive
step which will partially solvo tho
problem. The conditions found In sta
bles In tho heart of tho city, also tho
condition of our streets would indl
tate, w hen comparisons are mado with
modern methods of modern cities, that
the construction of n garbago crema
tory Is but ono of numerous radical
changes that must bo brought about.
In Lyons, Barcelona, Amsterdam
nnd a few other places It Is customary
to collect potato parings and similar
egctable jefuso by Itself, and sell it
to tho faimers to feed to their live
stock. Street sweepings nnd tho
refuso fiom maikcts aro also common
ly sold to manufacturers of fertilizers.
Berlin nnd Glasgow nro famous for
the farms which they own nnd operate.
At tho capital of tho German empire
there nro reservoirs at tho ends of n
number of sewers. Powerful pumps
take up tho contents, nnd send them
through plpo lines to points between
six and sixteen miles outsldo tho city.
Hero aro systems of irrigation canals,
or ditches, which spread out over large
areas, whero gardening is conducted on
a remunerative scalo. Employment Is
given .to ono thousand tramps, or work
houso peoplo, who live In barracks
when not busy. Part of tho tract of
land Is rented to farmers by tho city
and woikcd Independently. Twenty
nvo years ago, boforo tho Introduction
of sowors Into nerlln, tho death rato
was appallngly high. Tho city Is now
ono of tho healthiest on tho continent
Olasgow has crematories for such
garbago as cannot bo utilized other
wise. And sho has a good system of
sewers. There aro largo quantities of
stablo sweepings, refuso from abattoirs
and other material that lias a value
for fertilizing purposes. Thcso nro
carefully mixed, nnd patt of tho prod
uct is sold directly to farmers in tho
vicinity, transportation being furnish
ed over tho railroad In special earn be
longing to tho city. But tho municipal
ity has also bought farm after farm
In outlying districts, and has turnea )
lts unsold manuro to account thereon,
Tho crops raised thero are usually hay,
potatoes, turnips and oats. Tho crops
raoro than pay for tho cost of culti
vation, and tho city gets rid of a lot
of rofuso that cannot otherwlso bo dis
posed of to advantage. Liverpool nnd
the mllltniy enmp on the Island of
Malta lmo also made modest ventures
In the way of sew ago farming.
In ninny foteign cities whero modem
methods hao been adopted, nil solid
mnteilal gathered from houses nnd
business places Is carefully sorted over
before n final disposition Is made of It.
The amount of bones, metal, cinders,
dead animals and other things that can
bo utilized In ono way or another is
laige, and this Is sold or given away.
The residue left to bo cremated or enr
llcd off to tho dumps Is thus greatly
lessened. In Loudon this work Is now
i onducted on n uniform plan. Tho re
sponsibility thero la dhlded among n
number of .parlshcsj nnd each follows
tp own sweet will. Somo of them
ship gaibago out of town by rail, somo
carry it down tho river by barge, and
some of them burn It In "destructors."
HAWAII'S "BOARD OH HEALTH"
Following nre the principal points In
tho minutes of tho meeting of tho
"Hoard of Health for Hawaii" received
lcccntly by President Wood nnd read
at the meeting of tho Board of Health
Satin day afternoon:
Dr. Russell stated that ho had Inter-
lowed nearly nil tho business men In
town nnd was in n position to state
that the business men especially had
very llttlo confidence In tho Board on
account of Its Inconsistency, nnd had
strong statements from peoplo that If
the Boaid did not resign they would
bo mado to resign In a couple of days.
General discussion followed, In which
Dr. llussell stated that n mall was al
lowed to bo landed lcccntly on the
other sldo of the Island continry to tho
Instructions, whether through tho fault
of tho executive officer of tho Board
or not ho did not know, nnd such nets
caused the peoplo to have no confldenco
Mr. Kennedy said tho sheriff tins had
to do as tho authorities in Honolulu
Dr. Grace. "Wo ae no executive
officer attached to the Board."
Dr. Russell. "Then our existence Is
Dr. Grace said ho had communlcnted
with ono of the Knu delegates who said
ho was In favor of limited quarantlno
nnd was going to allow tho mall from
tho Iwnlanl to bo landed, nnd they did
not caro n d n whnt the people of
Hllo did. He would abandon tho wholo
thing if peoplo elsewhere on tho Island
could neutralize tho efforts of tho
Board In that way.
Thero was somo discussion at this
point ns to the minutes of last meet
ing, when Dr. Russell moved that this
permission to bring mall to Mahukona
and Hllo, nlso to bring rlco that had
not been In Honolulu, sugar machinery
nnd coin Is applicable only to this spe
cial trip of the KUauea Hou. Carried.
It was voted that the mall from tho
Iwnlanl bo not nllowcd to land, and If
landed, to be kept where it is until fur
ther order of the Board.
Sheriff Andrews arrived at this Junc
ture and said, In reply to a question
from Dr. Russell as to why Minister
Cooper had broken faith with tho Board
and allowed things to come up which
should not: "I did not hear Mr. Coop
er at any time commit himself In any
way that ho would not allow things to
como up. Ho stated that ho had no
authority to glvo anyono or any com
mittee on tho island of Hawaii author
ity which would bo equal to or para
mount with the Board of Health In
Honolulu." Ho stated that If all tho
Island of Hawaii wanted to have com
munication cut oft ho had no doubt tho
Board of Healtn would nccccd to their
wishes. Ho also told mo I was sheriff
of this Island nnd was under the in
structions of the authorities In Hono
lulu and that this Board bad no legal
standing until they had commissions.
"I will carry out tho orders of this
Board of Health until thoy conflict
with tho existing laws," said Sheriff
Andrews. "As soon ns this Board has
commissions, then I will carry out
whatever orders this Board makes."
After further discussion Dr. Russell
moved that this Board suspend Its deli
berations until an cxccutlvo power Is
attached to it. Carried. It was then
voted that tho previous motion regard
ing tho landing of malls bo erased from
the secretary's notes.
Steered Without Wires.
London, Jan. 17. Lleutenant-Com
mander Colwell, tho linked States na
val attacho In London, witnessed to
day at Yoovll the test of an Invention
offered to tho United Stntes Govern
ment for steering torpedoes and sub
marine craft by means of a wlroless
olectrlcnl dovlco on tho lines of tho
Marconi system. Tho Invention, how
ever, Is In no way connected with Slg.
Marconi. Tho patents aro hold by Ce
cil Vailcas, an English Inventor, nn
omployo of A. Chlggs, United Stntes
Consular Agent at Weymouth.
Tho experiments left no doubt that
craft can bo directed by means of an
other wavo, tho model being controlled
by a shoro motor with no other con
nection savo the cm rent working upon
tho i udder. Tho Inventor claims that
this can bo applied to torpedoes nnd
Bitbmarlno craft. Lieutenant Cora
mandcr Colwell will make a report on
tho subject to the Navy Department.
