THE MOST POPUI.ARaCAJP
TO EXTERMINATE THE RATS
Citizens Sanitary Committee Frames
Program of Procedure.
Suggestions Approved by Board of Health
This Forenoon To Be Put Into Opera
tion In Near Future.
At a meeting of the Board of Health
this forenoon L. A. Thurston presented
tho following for the Citizens' Com
mittee In rcgnnt to rats:
Honolulu, II. I., Feb. 9, 1900.
Dr. C. B. Wood,
President Hoard of Health,
Dear Sir: In pursuance with the in
timation from the Hoard of Health that
It would approve a general rat poison
ing proposition, this committee has
made Investigation as to the ways and
moans of carrying It out.
Tho amount of rat poison available
In tho city Is entirely Inadequate- to
carry out tho proposition. Tho com
mute estimate that thcro Hhould not
ho less than, say, 30,000 packages or
points of distribution, and have obtain-
ed tho following figures ns to cost:
It will tnko 2,000 pounds to furnish
material enough. Wo liavo ascertain
ed from MeBsrs. Benson, Smith & Co.
that they will furnish this amount of
specially prepared rat poison for $300.
There aro practically no containers In
town sufficient for this purpose nnd the
commlttco proposo to have Inch and
one half nuger holes bored three
fourths of an Inch Into n plcco of
board, say, thrco Inches square. Into
this hole, tho poison, consisting of a
mixture of (lour, lard and nrscnic,
flavored with rhodium, will bo placed.
Tho commlttco have, obtained figures
from the threo saw mills of tho city
and these containers can bo had at 1
to 16 cents apiece. Thirty thousand
of these nt l'i cents aplcco would be
$375. '1 his would make a total cost of
$073, exclusive of transportation. As
the containers suggested nro bulky, tho
transportation and distribution will
cost considerable. In view of this heavy
tost (and thcro docs not seem to bo
any way of lessening) and of the fact
that the tangible results of tho propo
sition may not bo la'rge. the committed
submit tho program and Its details for
your approval or otherwise, as you may
think best. We remain,
Your obedient servants,
Citizens' Sanitary Committee-.
(Signed.) L. A. THUUSTON.
In connection with tho nbovo com
munication Mr. Thurston presented tho
following program for the proposed
rat catching scheme:
All citizens are requested to coopcrato
with tho Citizens' Sanitary Commlttco
' and inspectors In the destruction of
rats, which aro known to spread
plague. In order to do this effectively
the following suggestions aro made:
Simultaneous action should be taken
for this purpose. Thursday and Friday
afternoon and evening next, nie desig
nated as tho tlmo for action.
Every one who has or can obtain a
rat trap or traps Is requested to bait
and set tho samo at tho time aforesaid,
As traps nro but few and tho need is
.urgent, tho liberal use of rat poison is
recommended. All who can afford to
buy are requested to obtain the poison
themselves. Tho committee will fur
nish It freo to thoso who are uuablo to
buy and to thoso who will distribute it
whero It Is most needed. To thoso who
can pay, tho committee will furnish
poison at tho rato of live cents per
package. Tho poison urn be had of
Benson, Smith & Co, tin- Citizens'
Sanitary Commlttco or the Inspectors.
Sl'HEAI) OF 1NFOUMATION.
Each inspector or suo-lnspector is
requested to Inform tho pcoplo of their
several districts of tho time and man
ner In which tho attempt will bo mado
to destroy tho rats and to request tholr
cooperation. Tho newspapers nro
nlso requested to call dally at
tention to tho mutter. Each
Inspector is requested to canvass
Ills district ns soon as possible, and so
curo as many volunteers ni-. ho can to
assist In tho thorough distribution of
tho poison; and also to report to tho
commlttco nt ns early a dato as pos
sible, tho number of packages of poison
ho will require- in his district.
PLACING OF WATER.
Rats seek water after eating poison,
PInco water within easy access of each
package of poison so that tho rats will
, lio attracted thereto and die thcro in
stead of scattering to places whero thoy
cannot bo found.
DISPOSAL OF RATS.
Early on tho morning following each
distribution of poison, a careful search
should bo mado for dead rale, TJiq
Hoard of Health offers n rowara for
rats, but handling them is dangerous.
It Is recommended that nil irata found
bo immediately saturated with kero
sene oil and burned on thoy spot. Add
fuel enough to mako tho burning com
plete. Do not touch tho rfits. Handlo
them with sticks nnd burn tho sticks;
or with a shovel and then oxposo tho
shovel blade to tiro. If tlfo rat Is mov
ed, pour kerosene oil on tho spot whero
found and burn thoroughly.
METHOD OF DISTRIBUTION OF
Each pnekago of ordinary rat poi
son Is nccompanlcd by directions for
Its use. Tho poison furnished by tho
commlttco will bo all prepared nnd
run Into auger holes In boards alt
ready for placing whero needed.
QUANTITY TO BE USED.
If this campaign is to bo effective,
It must bo thorough. Citizens are,
therefore, urged not to bo sparing In
tho distribution of tho poison. It Is
suggested that poison bo placed In at
least a half dozen different places
about each building and more, If the
building or ynrd Is large or likely to
bo infested with rats.
ENUMERATION OF RATS KILLED.
Many rats will doubtless cscapo and
dlo whero they cannot bo found; but
as far as practicable, Inspectors are re
quested to secure n count of the rats
killed In their respective districts.
CARE SHOULD HE USED.
Each morning after tho distribution
of poison, all remaining should be re
moved to a safo placo where It cannot
bo reached by children or valuable ani
mals. Cats, dogs and chickens should
bo confined nt tho times when distri
bution Is to take place, to prevent ac

yesterday Mr. Smith called attention to
an advertisement In ono of tho papers
of the sale of tho old buildings on King
street, between Fort nnd Bethel. Presl
dent Wood Instructed Engineer Cou

and report. Mr. Cousins hns sent tho
following to President Wood:
"President Board of Health: In ac
cordance with your Instructions, I
have examined tho buildings on King
street, belonging to tho Austin Estate.
' Theso buildings should bo taken
down and destroyed by fire, thereby
preventing any of tho material being
used, In or on any building In any way
whatsoever. Tho material Is old and
full of dry rot, nnd thoroughly rotten
and lilthy throughout.
"It could not well bo burnt ns It now
stands, wltnout danger to tho adjoin
ing building. Therefore, It ought to
be removed to a safo placo and thero
burnt. W. II. COUSINS,
dticU Atkinson's Proposition.
Mr. Lowrey brought up nt yester

warehouso detention enmp. Mr. At
kinson biiggested that, when tho de
tention camp Is no longer used for
quarauttno purposes tho wnrchouso It

is very much needed In Honolulu. Tho
hospltnl could bo put In churgo of tho
City i iiyslclan and Mr. Atkinson him
self guaranteed to procure funds
enough from public spirited men for
tho employment of n trained nurse. .
rr'shlcnt Wood's Statement.
Seen in regard to tho recent notion of
tho Hoard In tho matter of opening tho
churches, schools and tho Orpheum,
President Wood had tho following to
say this forenoon: "Tho Hoard kept
getting requests from various pcoplo to
open theso places nnd wo, seeing tho
community seemed to bo In favor of
such notion, acted accordingly. Many
complained that, If tho saloons were al
lowed to open, thero was no reason why
tho churches, schools and Orphoum
should not open. Of courso, had not
tho Hoard considered this measuro safe,
wo would not liavo acted as wo did."
Oi'plicum to Open Monday.
At a meeting of tho Board of Health
yesterday afternoon President Wood
read a communication from Manager
Cohen of tho Orpheum, asking that
that placo of amusement bo allowed to
open again Monday night. Thero was
no discussion whatever. Mr. Lowrey
moved that tho request bo granted, it
was seconded and then pnssed unanimously.
Opening of Schools,
Secretary Rodgors of tho Department
of Education will furnish tho Board
of Health with a list of all the schools
In Honolulu, with n request to bo In
formed, formally, what ones nro not In
Infected districts and thereforo per
mitted to open. The secretary believes
thcro nro none In infected districts,

school and Its branch In tho basement
of Knumakaplll church. When ho re
ceives tho Board's reply, tho secretary
will Issue n notice accordingly.

Even If thcro was no quarantluo of

very sick Chinaman who was found in

poor fellow was unablo to walk and ho
gavo every appearance of serious ill
ness. Tho ambulance was 'summoned
at ouco and, in company with Dr. Da
vis and Health Agents Reynolds and
Charlock, It proceeded to tho place.
Upon arrival thero It was found that
tho Chinaman was so weak that every
tlmo ho attempted to rise, he fell down.
Dr. Davis gavo It as his opinion that
tho p&or fellow was Buffering from tho
want of nourishment and Indeed tho
Chinaman's story tallied with this. Ho
stated that ho had been an employe of
Hop Lee who used to do business at
tho corner of Maunakea and King
streets, In tho Infected district. Ho had
no homo nnd, for tho past four or live
nights, had been forced to sleep lu
Thomas Square. No food had passed

man was at once placed lu tho ambu
