The Intelligent mongoose can (hid a

. "Stumping out the plague" Is a term
that might well be shelved until a lea
sonablo guarantee Is obtained that the
progress of tno pest Is stayed.
Until im active campaign Is made
against the rat pest, there Is no tell
ing what section of tlio city may fol
low In tho pathway of the I'nntheon
block and become a center of infection.
Minister Young Is demonstrating In n
quiet, forceful manner thnt he Is the
head of the Public Works Department.
When work Is authorized, the authority
carries suggestion of action, not delay.

CAMPAIGN AGAIN8T RATS.
The Important part rats are playing
In tho spread of tho plague warrants
tho Inauguration of an active rat cam
paign throughout the city. It seems
well proved that comparatively little
effective work can be accomplished by
giving out a general notlco that nil
rats should be killed, Many people by
Indifference to tho danger of Infection
do not tnho sufficient care in handling
the rodents, whllo others fear to make
nny effort. Meanwhile tho rats recog
nize no quarantine lines and continue
to spread disease.
Death to the rats, without serious
danger to tho rat killers, can only be
accomplished through organized ef
. fort under the direction of the Hoard
of Health. The situation is sufllclently
serious to warrant tho organization of
a corps of men deputized to carry out
fumigating and int killing opeatlons
block by block throughout tho
city. This means an Immense
amount of work, temporary clos
ing of stores and construction of
temporary rat proof harriers about
each block whllo the lumlgatlon U un

previously weak administration that

the forceful practical energy Into the

destructlvo work of tho Board of
Health Is promptly followed by the
equally Important reconstructive
measures, the lmportanco of which
cannot bo overestimated.
Alexander Young Is proving himself
tho right man In the right place, do

every progressive citizen of tho com

which,' compared with tho usually pon

situation calls for radical action. Ho-

Tho first steps having been taken to

This Information would be valuable, If
It were founded on fact. Tho success
of wireless telegraphy In sending mes

It is true that messages can bo sent
more rapidly by wlro telegraph than by
Marconi's wireless. This, however,
does not destroy the practical valuo of
tho Marconi system under conditions
similar to those existing In these Isl

displaced the transmission of messages
by wire, nor is It likely to for sonio

AN IMPORTAINT QUESTION.
Los Angeles Express.
When tho bill providing for n form of
government for Hawaii was taken up
last week by tho Houso Committee on
Territories, Representative HItt of Illi
nois, a member of the Hawaiian Com
mission, explained tho general purposes
at considerable length, and urged the
necessity of early action. Mr. Hitt
argued that the present condition of
uncertainty on the island and the con
flicting laws caused much trouble
among the people and tho business In
terests, and as tho political destiny of
Hawaii was no longer nn open ques
tion, It was most deslrablo to bring all
conflicts of authority to a close nnd
establish a Btablo government ns soon
as possible. He took up tho threo main
objections rnlsed to tho territorial form
or government pioposed nnd answered
them. Tho proposed property qualifi
cation for voters for members of tho
Scnnto Jarred somewhat on our sensibi
lities nnd customs, Mr. HItt said, but
It was In lino with tho local sentiment
nnd nsago In Hawaii, and tho desire
had been to ylold to tho reasonable de
slrrs of tho pcoplo of tho Islands.
Whllo what Mr. HItt says In regard
to Hawaii is absolutely true In every
icspect, tho same remarks opnly wifh
equal it not greater rorco to Porto Ri
co and tho Philippines. As to Porto
mco, mat island Is ns much n part of
tho territory of tho United States nt
llio present tlmo ns nnv territory In
tho West, and tho fact that It Is an
Island out In tho ocean nuta no flcuro
nt nil. It Is nearer tho capital, as fur
ns time U concerned, than many of our
territories wero nt tho time they were
established, or oven now. nnd w
