THE NEEDS OF KALIHI
Presented In Succfnt Form (o the
Minister of the Interior.
Interview With Minister Young by League Ex
ecutive Committee-One Million Dollars
Estimated for All Honolulu Streets.
This morning K. II. O. Wallace, W.
It. Sims, Geo. Farr nnd T. McCants
Stewart, the exccutlvo committee ot
the Knllhl Leaguo for Public improve
ments, waited on MIniaiur Young to
present him with a document rending
"IN THE MATTER OK THE APPLI
CATION OP THE KALIHI LEAGUE
FOR PUBLIC IMPROVEMENTS.
"Hon. Alex. Young, Minister ot the
Interior, Republic of Hawaii.
"Sir: We, the executive committee
of the Knllhl Leaguo for Public Im
provements, havo been directed by
said Leaguo to wait upon your Honor
and to urgo upon you tho necessity of
making certain Improvements for tho
sanitary nnd general good of tho Dis
trict of Kallhl and its vicinity; and v.'o
beg leavo to file tho following memor
andum In writing, namely:
"First. Tho Incrcaso ot traffic and
travel on King street has shown that
said street, from tho brldgo to Kalrm
Ikl, is too narrow for either .afety or
tho convenience of persons using It
and, being a coral road, tho dust rises
from It In largo volume, nnd Injures
tho throat, lungs and eyes of persons
using It. Tho street, In Us present con
dition, Is n discredit to tho city. It
should bo made at least sixty feet wide
"Second. No fire cnglno Is stationed
In Knllhl or Its vicinity, nnd no public
provision has been mndo for tho sup
pression of llres there. Onco started,
a fire would burn Itself out, unless put
out by prlvnto citizens with privuto
npparatus. Tho hardship of such a
situation Is manifest without further
"Third. Tho necessity of temovlng
garbage nnd refuse from thu houses
and promises of tho residents ot tho
city hao been emphasized by tho prcs
enco of plague In our midst. There are
many residences In Knllhl and Us
vicinity on small lots. Those citizens
who occupy them, clthor ns tuxpaycrs
or rent payers, find It dllllcult to dis
pose of garbage and refuse. Unless Im
medlnto attention Is paid to this mat
ter by tho Government, It may becomo
u menace to tho public health.
"Whereforo tho Leaguo heieby pe
titions the Government, its follows, to
"1. To tnko Immediate steps to widen
nnd macadamlzo King street from the
brldgo to Kahaulkl, making tho road
way at least from forty to forty-four
feet wide, and tho sldownlks on each
side at least from eight to ten foot
,"2. To place hydrants In Knllhl and
Its vicinity at Bultablo points, not ex
ceeding five hundred fcot apart, and to
stntlon one or moro tiro engines out
there, ono to bo located near tho pump
"3. To mako early arrangements to
send, at least twice each week, carts to
Kallhl and Us vicinity to remove thero
from all garbago and retiiso, and to in
cludo tho district In whatever perma
nent plans tho Government mny decldo
upon for the removal and disposal of
Minister Young .replying to tho com
mittee, said ho fully recognUud tho ne
cessity ot carrying out tho proportions
In their memorandum. Ho realized
that King street carried n greater
amount ot traffic than any other
thoroughfaro excepting thosa on tho
water front. With Itnnd Supervisor
Ouderklrk ho had gone over all tho
streets of tho city, for iho purpuso of
scheduling them for reconsttuctlon and
repairs. Tho cost ot dcslrnblo street
work would bo ono million dollars.
No favoritism would bo showed, how
ever, ns to tho streets selected for
operations. Nothing but tho public re
quirements would bo considered in any
case. No matter how many leagues
camo to him, ho would oxerclso tho
functions ot his ofllcc In nn Impartial
A member of tho deputation remind
ed tho Minister that KinK utrect was
tho only public highway to that wholo
countryside Including tho Important
districts of Ewa, Walanno und Wala
luo. Yet King street has been neglected
right straight along.
Minister Young responded that tho
fornfer road supervisor lind left King
street In a bad condition. Hut when
' ti'io new man camo In, ho hud no funds
wherewith to mako amends. That
street ought to bo ilxcd up.
Mr. Sims asked tho Mlniilor If tho
Legislature was not to bo convened,
nnd should tho Kallhl not expect to ro
celvo a measure of Justlco from that
Tho Minister replied that thoy know
ns much about tho prospect ot a ses
sion of tho Legislature as ho did.
Mr. Sims remarked that, if tho old
Legislature wero not called, tho new
one, depending on tho passage of tho
Territorial bill by Congress, would bo
elected In November nnd would not
meet until February. It would bo n
long wntt (or the Improvements so
necessary, wlillo the conditions went
from bad to worse.

THE LIMITS OF SEWERAGE
To refresh tho memory of citizens,
In view of tho action on sewerage taken
by tho Executive Council yesterday,
the status of this great public Improve
ment may bo briefly stated.
Tho section of sowerago now under
contract and well advanced In construc
tion is bounded by tho oceau, South,
Alapal, Beretanln nnd River streets
and back to tho ocean. It includes
tho pumping plant, the sewogo reser
voir and tho outfall.
Yesterday's resolution of tho Exccu
tlvo Council ordered tenders to bo ob
tained "for that portion of tho sewer
age system not yet contracted for but
already surveyed for which plaus and
specifications are already In tho pos
session of tho Government."
Mr. Edwards, supervising engineer
of tho works, showed a reporter today
that tho plans and specifications wero
prepared for a moro extended area than
tho Government had originally design
ed to havo constructed.
Thus, Instead ot tho northward limit
being LUIIui street, tho system is plan
ned to tho Insano Asylum. And, in
stead of stopping at Punahou stroot,
easterly, ns had been contemplated, tho
plans reach out two streets beyond to
Aloxandcr street. Punchbowl streets
aro covered In the engineer's maps to
Includo Prospect street. Practically,
tho plans and specifications "already In
tho possession of tho Government"
comprlso tho cnttro city plot oxceptlng
tho Walklkl tracts, upper Palama and
Kallhl sections and Nutinnu valley be
yond tho cemetery.

Tho boys on guard at Koko Head

of a shack for protection at their head
quarters. During tho Sunday rain tho
guards wero practically without pro

which, coupled with tho cold wind

It was not long beforo children wero

A Lawyer's Questions.
A prominent nttorncy speaking ot
tho opening of Court yesterday, asked
tho following questions: "Do you

time? Supposing 1 should have a caso
In which say, for the sake of nrgumcut,
tho sheriff of Hawaii wns ono of my
principal witnesses, would It bo right
for him to bo subpoenned? I should
certainly enrry out everything neces
sary for tho safety of my case and tho
sheriff of Hawaii would not only hnvo
to como but ho would havo to remain,
"Now then, supposing n enso of
plague should break out in tho court
room during tho progress of u trial,
what would happen? The plnco would
bo quarantine and tho clerk's office
would bo closed to overyono causing n
most disagreeable state of affairs."
J. W. Hartmnn, mnlo American, aged
35, an employe, of tho Pantheon sta

last night to bo a victim of tho plague.
Tho man had been sick since Snturday
but there were no suspicious symptoms

around premises burned to prevent any
possible escnpo of rats, although It has
been demonstrated time and again in

holes directly under burning buildings
Instead of escaping from the llnmcs. In
this they aro like horses."

At a special meeting of tho Board of
Health this morning thero wero pres
ent tho following: President Wood,
Dr. Day, F. M. Hatch. F. J. Lowrey nnd
Geo. W. Smith.
President Wood brought up tho mat
ter of freight. Peoplo were continually
troubling him nbout matters that havo
already been decided on. Speaking of
paddy. President Wood stated It us his
opinion thnt there Is but ltttlo danger
If tho husks aro removed from tho rlco
nnd the same is put Into clean bags.
President Wood then referred to tho
Pantheon premises saying that tho rea
son ho wns so anxious to deal with
that place Immediately is becauso tho
record of tho past two or three days
had shown tho plnco to bo viciously In
fected. Continuing on tho subject of
Infection President Wood said: "Wo
don't know where the Infection Is now.
It Is probably nil over town. I be
lieve tho Pantheon stnblcs nnd saloon
should bo declared Infected for tho
"On January 23 Quon 'ut Man was
found In the afternoon near Wylllo
street. Ho was outside a small house
there and the probabilities nro that
ho was In that houso for several hours.
Tho man was engaged lu the Pantheon
saloon up to the 21st. On that day Dr.
Hoffman examined him nnd found no
evidences of the plague. It Is hard to
get evldenco as to tlio man's where
abouts up to the 2flth. As far as I can
learn ho went Into the McLean block
with his fnmlly. Tho peoplo thcro de
nied that. The man died nt the pest
house- of bubonic plague.
"On Monday, tho 20th, another Chl
ncso named Wong Chin nt 8 o'clock In
thu morning himself went to tho Chl
ncso hospital for treatment. Ho stated
that ho had been working lu tho Pan
theon stubles up to the afternoon be
fore. Ho wns sick nil of Monday nnd
Tuesday nnd died on February 1, Ho
presented no distinct symptoms of
plague but ho wns kept segregated all
tho time. Post mortem examination
wiis held and no bacilli could bo found.
Snturday wo got positive evldenco of
piaguo from cultures.
"Theso two cases wero rather good
evidence that the place Itself carried
Infection. If any evldenco was lacking,
certainly u third case, thut of a whlto
2inn, ought to prove conclusively that
tho plncC Is Infected.
"I saw Hartmnn, U"-' w"'.t suspect,
when Dr. Wnyson reporter! J:! sick
ness. There wus nothing suspicious up
to Sunday. On Monday his symptoms
did not resemble tho constitutional
symptoms of plague. Last evening tho
caso developed nnd It was proven con
clusively thnt the man was afflicted
with the plague."
Dr. Wood then reported tho addi
tional cuso of a Japancso in a tenement
houso on South street. His caso Is
suspicious and Is being watched care
fully, althougii thoro aro no direct
symptoms as yet. This mnn was also
an employe ot tho Pantheon stnblcs.
As n further evldenco ot tho Infected
condition ot the plnco. President Wood
mentioned tho finding of sick rnts
from n dnto eorly in January.
Mr. Hatch then moved that tho Pan
theon stables and saloon bo declared
an Infected place and that tho samo bo
destroyed by lire. Seconded by Mr.
Smith nnd unanimously carried.
President Wood emphasized tho need
ot Immedlnto measures in tho caso ot
Ho further stated that tho wholo

had been found. Nino white peoplo
wero now In quarantine, there. Of this
number, llvo wero from tho Union
Squnro block. Theso poor peoplo had
undergono tho period of quarantine nnd
wero now caught again.
Tho following resolution Introduced
by Dr. Day wns adopted by tho Board:
In view ot tho fact that rats aro

plaguo and that It Is Important to
