Tho heap of rubbish left from the
Pantheon lire suggests that sharp
watch must bo kept on the rats till all
of tho destroyed buildings arc reduced
The Citizens' Committee will do well
to take up the rat campaign. Tho
Hon til of Health will unquestionably
endorse such measures as the commit
tee Is ready to Inaugurate.
A circular letter from iho Japanese
Consul would put an end to any pos
sible danger of anything bordering on a
riot among the Jnpaneso people. In
dividual characters disposed to do des
perate work must bo watched by the
Piople possessed by a fear of rioting
Asiatics are free to stock their olllces
and homes with tho handy arsenals of
former revolutionary days. This will
bo sufficient nonsense without making
a public display by calling on United
Enforced Idleness among any class
of laborers Is conduclvo to well lilted
jails and a general condition of unrest.
Tho government should make a special
effort to provldo work for those willing
to perform labor. Those who will not
work will wind up In the jails sooner
or later anyway.
FIGHT AGAINST RATS.
Tho best organized effort tho city
can muster Is nono too strong a force
to bo brought to bear In tho campaign
against rats. Tho only way In which
these carriers of tho pest can bo ex
terminated and the work done thor
oughly Is for a body of men to go
through the city, from storo to store
and house to houso fumigating thor
oughly, particular caro being taken to
prevent the rodents from escaping. Trap
ping the rats Is all right so far as It
goes, but when It has been conclusively
proved that theso animals aro the chief
sourco of spreading infection, tho situ
ation warrants more drastic measures.
During the cholera epidemic tho wholo
town shut up shop for two days, whllo
a general house cleaning was carried
on. The samo Idea could bo followed
out In tbo campaign against tho rats.
Until It Is dono tho prospect of more
tires In tho business and residence dis
trict Is not pleasant to contemplate to
say nothing of tho lives that may be
sacrificed. Attack tho rats with the
same drastic energy that has been
expended on infected premises.
"Tho first regular session of tho
Legislature shall bo held on the third
Wednesday In February, 1890 and bi
ennially thereafter In Honolulu."
Tnls Is the text of Section 1 of Ar
ticle CO, of tho constitution of the Re
public of Hawaii, entitled sessions of
tho Legislature According to tho con
stitution of tho Republic to which such
local promlnenco Is given, the Legisla
ture of Hawaii must conveno in regu
lar session two wcoks from today. Tho
President's proclamation of May 13,
1899, which put an end to tho prepara
tions for nn election In September, pro
vided that "All elective officers whoso
terms of ofllco shall expire bofore ap
propriate legislation Bhall havo been
enacted by the Congress of tho United
StateB, shall bo continued In their
offices nt tho pleasure of the President
of tho United States."
Tho time for members of tho Legisla
ture to conveno Is approaching. Tho
local constitution requires that they as
semble. What is tho pleasure of tho
OPPORTUNITY FOR THE BX
CCUTIVE. Tho Executive ana legislative branch
of tho government will do better to
provldo work and homes for tho poo
ple being released from quarantlno
than to call on the United States gar
rison or spend monoy for increased
guard against rioting. Some provision
for ihese people must bo mnde . Asldo
from the fear that they may become
ugly, the citizens havo no right to turn
poor homeless pcoplo on tho streets
with a kick and n incasing and n re
commendation that they hunt for n
home. Tho majority who do find a
home find It In nn overcrowded board
ing house. Admitted that thcro are
those who would refuse to woik on tho
roads, no paitlcnlar effort has been
made to furnish such work for tboso
willing to perform such labor.
Street extension nnd Improvement
will help to nolvo tho problem though
It niny not accomplish nil that Is to be
desired. It Is said thcro is no money
for street work. Yet tho legislative
niithor.o exists to get It. This Is a
tlmo for the executive officials to dis
play u more active part. no Board of
Heaith has been running tho govern
ment and It has dono the work succesi
fully. As regaids tno refugees from
the detention camps, tbo Iloniil of
Health Is through with them.
Ocntlcmcn of the Cabinet It is up to
you .o net.
No man can tell how long tho pest
will continue. Until It Is permanently
checked the refugees from Chinatown '
cannot secure labor In the usual chan
nels. Meanwhile provision must be
nindo for their maintenance. They can
not bo left to starve. They ought not
to be allowed to wander about In en
forced Idleness. They cannot bo sent
to ti.c other Islands. It has come down
to n proposition of whether tho gov
ernment shall provide food and homes
out of hnnd ,or whether It will take nc-
tivo measures to provide labor from
the returns of which tho people ran nt
least buy tneir own food.
PEAR OP ASIATICS.
In view of tho oft repeated antl-nn-ticxnllon
phrnse, "Give us tho flag nnd
a corporal's guard and Hawaii will bo
safe," tho plea for an Increaso of tho
United States garrison sent out through
tho government mouthpleco is decided
ly Interesting if not amusing. Tho rea
son given for this request Is that tho
Asiatic population turned looso on
tho town without homes or employ
ment Is likely to become obstreperous
and seriously menace tho llfo and prop
erty of tho city.
Is tho government of tho Republic of
Hawaii prepared to admit that' the
Asiatic contingent which the magnlfl
cent labor system of the Republic has
brought to this city is so largo and evil
minded that it cannot bo controlled by
tho local authorities? From tho ro-
marks of the government organ, It ap
pears that this admission Is now tacit
ly made. Tho people do not sharo this
fear. Thcro Is no reason why they
It Is truo that certain rovengful
Asiatics may, in their blind lgnoranco
nttempt to stir up strlfo and Instigate
a riot. It Is also truo that the pcoplo
and pollco authorities appreciate tho
possible dangers to tho situation nnd
will bo constantly watchful to provent
any uprising which mny threaten.
Nothing In the experience of tno plan
tations, where Asiatics largely outnum
ber tho whites, nor In tho history of
Honolulu's revolutions warrants a
panic stricken appeal to tho United
States authorities to assist In holding
down tho Asiatics of Honolulu.
Tho Asiatics havo no organization,
they nro not armed. The Citizens'
Guard organized for tho express pur
poso of quelling riots Is subject to call
at any moment. As was shown by tho
revolution of '95, tho wholo city can bo
put under nrmed guard In twenty min
utes after tho alarm Is sent out. A few
bullets nnd n black snake in the hands
of a fow lusty men will quell any mob
of Asiatics that has yet been known In
theso Islands. As to the Jopancso, they
nro completely under tho sway of their
Consul. Thcro is no question of the
Consul's attitude Tho Chlneso havo
no lighting or organizing ability that
need bo feared when a thorough, organ
ization oxlsta to opposo rioters.
The principal danger is from tho In
dividual Incendiary. It behooves pri
vato watchmen and tho pollco particu
larly to bo on guard against tho work
of such persons.
