In ofllcc It ought to meet next Wed
President Iiiiln t think vnll nrn I
right, Mr. Gear. I said In my letter of
January 17 Hint If tho Legislature was
still In ofllee I could not prevent It
from Slttlnrj. Prpalilnnt MMflntnv
must have received that letter, but ho
nns not nnswereu it.
Mr. Gear as not that proclama
tion of President MrKlnlnv lamir.,1 In
direct connection with tho election for
n new legislature?
President Dole It may be that Pres
ident Mc.llllPV lliniirrllt thnrn Ufnrn
other electlvo oiTlcers than the Presi
dent In this Republic.
THE PASSAGE MOVED.
Mr. Achl According to our Consti
tution I benevc this body has the pow
er to npproprlnte money for the pur
poses of this hill. The purposes nro
extremely necessary and I nm ready to
voto for tho I,.... I move that the bill
Mr. Iscubcrg seconded the motion.
President Dole The case Is stronger
thnn Mr. Brown takes It. President
McKlnlcy authorized this Council of
Stflln to nnnrmirlntp mnnnv tnr tlm
suppression of bulionlr plague nnd for
permanent snuiinry improvemenlB. I
consider that the Council lias tho right
to carry out what tho Hoa?d of Health
deems necessary for the suppression
and prevention of the plague without
referring tho question to President Mc
Klnley. Yet the bill makeB It stronger
by submitting It to President McKln
ley. Mr. Gear asked when this tewcrage
extension prmtil Up ilnnn
President Dole replied that the Gov-.
ernment nati rorwamed ndvertlsemcnts
for tenders to. tho States, from which
answers ought to bo received within
iilr. Genr said It would take four
months to complete the work now In
hand. The extension would require
much more time. It would talto a year
to a year nnd a half to corapleto tho
extension. If they could go ahead nnd
complete the work he would voto for
It. Ho had been struck by finding In
reports of the Board of Health for
years past recommendations of a sew
crago system for Honolulu, yet the
Legislature never took any action In
tho matter. It might be ten years be
fore tho work was completed.
President Dole T-e sooner wo be
gin tho earlier It will be completed,
and the work can be rushed by putting
more men on It.
Minister Damon said the existing
contracts would be In peril tho 1st of
Mnrch. Unless something wero done
tho work .would come to n standstill.
ATTORNEY GENERAL ARGUES.
Minister Cooper quoted the annexa
tion resolution, showing thnr nil )
powers of government nnd civil olllccra
Hiiuiiiu ue penorms.i untier mo direc
tion of the President of tho United
States. If President McKlulry could
stop nn election here, ho cerlilnly
coum ueicgnio power to tho Council
of State. As to the power of that hedy
to nit It was a nutter of fact for Itself
to decide. If the present was lot ah
"emergency" of pestilence, It was
something very much like It. While
It mny bo truo that this work cannot
bo done tomorrow It can ha pushed
forward. The Hawaiian Medical As
sociation as well as the Board of
Health has urged this work for the
snnitnry protection of tne city. Tho
Minister of tho Interior cannot go on
with contracts .vithout authority be
hind him. This appropriation should
be mado today. Tho rcferenco to
President McKInley make, tho position
Stronger. All tho nuthnrlHn., niTrnn
that cesspools are among tho principal
causes oi disease, a case ,r plague oc
curred today which is qulto mysteri
ous. Wo should fight it as a mysteri
ous pestilence. If the territorial bill
passes President McKlnley's power
here ceases, and tho only provision m
that bin for legislative authority hero
would put the matter b'ick for another
President Dole invited tho President
of the Board of Health to address the
DR. WOOD'S SPEECH.
Dr. Wood responded in snbstanco us
follows: Whatever I tay Is on bchulf
of tho Board of Health, and when I xim
the first personal pronoun It Is to be
taken In that sense. Thli. question ban
been before the Board roven or light
times nnd there is no division of opin
ion In the Board as to tho necessity of
a sewerago system ns n direct means
of suppressing bubonic plague. If it
needs nny argument 1 think wo nro
prepared with facts. It Is n mystorlous
dlsrnoe. It Is nn easy matter to kill
the bacilli. A mild (tntlbeptlo, will do
that, If we can only get tho bacilli.
They dlo easy In media of culture, but
they have a longer period of life else
where. How long they continue nllvo
in tho soil wo do not know. How long,
they exist In passing through human
bodies wo do not know. They aro II
nblo to gain a foothold In any com
munity. They gcrmlnato and nourish
In n filthy soil and especially nttaelt
people In poor v(rcupistnnces of life.
Wo nro polluting the soil of Honolulu,
have been doing so slnco it was a city.
What has been cannot bo helped. The
matter can be helped for tho future I
brought bacilli from Hongkong three
years ngo nnd tried to cnltlvnte them,
but they havo nil died. Yet tho plnguo
still exists In Hongkong, It still exists
In Indln. Every now nrid then It dis
appears. It Is stamped out every year
in Hongkong. We get reports that
thero is no more plaguo, but every
spring it renppcars. I had begun to
think wo wero clear of It hero, but to
day it has appeared ngaln, nnd now I
shnll not bellovo wo have stamped out
plaguo hero until a year has elapsed.
Different communities long ngo learn
ed how to prevent tho plaguo, and
cities aro keeping it out by sanitation,
The renson they stop It periodically. In
ISl.fUi.at' .itarW vUiiti iiMOi
Hongkong Is that tho heavy winter
rnins wash n great deal of tho filth Into
tho sea. Peoplo who handlo plague
cases do not take the dlscaso In largo
proportion. Out of tho thousands of
peoplo who havo been segregated In
camps hero tlicro have been very fow
cases, while people who havo lived
In the samo houso or even neighbor
hood have been taken. Tho soil has
beconio Infected probably, In soma way
that wo do not understand, with tho
aid of rats. Tho rensonnblo conclu
sion regarding the known disappear
ance of rnts from certain sections of
tho city Is that they havo been killed
by the plague, yet that theory does not
nsstiro us that the Infection Is not In
the 4oll. Tho case today is suggestive.
Two or thrco days boforo tho ptnguu
was discovered a German died, nnd
physicians after tho knowledge of the
plnguc's appearance believed ho died
from It. .his girl today lived In tho
house right back of where tho German
was taken. Tho extension of tlm
sewerage system should begin now. If
It tnkc it year nnd a half, that is bet
ter than waiting for ten years. If wo
stop tne polluting of tho soil, which is
ns full ns It can bo now with human
excrement, wo can prevent tho recru
descence of the plague. It Is not like
cholera, which lives n while in water
and when you stop tho wntcr, dies.
You will havo It ngnin from Asia. If
you nro not suro of your nuthorlty, err
on tho safo side, nnd If there Is nny
doubt nbout permission of tho authori
ties In Washington get the work done
before tuey have timo to object.
THE SYS i EM CHALLENGED.
Mr. Robertson nsked If tho Govern
ment wero satlsdcd with 'tho system as
It was being constructed. Some peoplo
said that tho pipes were Inadequate for
carrying off the sewage. A bad system
might be n worso mennco to health
than none nt nil. Ho wns willing to
voto for tho sowerage, but unless the
Government wero satisfied with Mr.
Hcrlng'B plans they should not be lim
ited to those plans.
Minister Cooper said the Govern
ment was satisfied. There was no In
tention of providing for storm wnter In
this system. Mr. Ilerlng stood nt tho
head of sanitary engineers. They went
to the head source by employing Mr.
Hcrlng personally. Tho latest sewer
ago systems were limited to smaller
pipes than tho old kind through which
n mule might bo driven. No account
was taken of storm wnter, It being car
ried off by spcclnl drnlnage.
Minister Young said he was not
there when the plans wero being mado.
Mr. Herlng wns known to bo well for
ward In his profession. Peoplo would
not need to lose nny sleep on account
of the adequacy of tho system. In
other countries Including England
they wero putting In separato sewers
for storm water. This had been 'lo
slgncd here nlso, but It was not In the
appropriation. It would romo In time.
He hoped tho Council of Stato would
fall In with tho wny proposed. If there
wan not a great public necessity he did
not think tliero over would bo one.
They wero tip against n great emer
gency. If they did not get rid of a
hundred, years of foul deposit In tho
soil they would bo caught with every
dlsenso that camo along. Tho present
contracts would bo a Httlo ahead of
time, excepting for tho outfall sewer
which had not got on as fast ns It
ought and tho most difficult work was
to como yet. Ho had no doubt that
President McKInley would sanction
thatmci Biirc. Members wero nnturally
a llttlo nervous about such a tremen
dous appropriation, but they could not
have a tremendous Improvement with
out n tremendous appropriation.
FOR ALL TIME.
Mr. Ka-no argued that tho work was
u public necessity now and would bo
n permanent improvement. Tho bene-
lit would bo for till time.
Mr. Gear referred to his pruvlous ro
ntnrks, mado by wny of eliciting infor
mation. At first ho had not been In fa
vor of passing the appropriation by Hint
body. Dr. Wood's speech, however,
had convinced him Hint It could not bo
avoided. Ho wns ready to vote for tho
Mr. (tobeitbon saw no necessity for
publication, thercforo moved an
amendment that the bill becomo law
upon the dato of its npprovnl by Presi
dent McKInley. Carried.
Mr. Kauliikou moved, seconded by
Mr. lscnberg, that tho bill puss ns
nincndcd, which carried unanimously.
ANOTHER HUNDRED THOUSAND.
Minister Damon presented n bill to
npproprlato $100,000 additional for tho
Board of Health expenses In suppres
sing the plaguo. Tliero was 1140,000
still undrawn, according to tho Audi
tor General, but the Board's (bianco
committee reported bills in hand
amounting to $13S,000. J
Mr. Brown moved and Mr. Gear sec
onded, both with laughing accompanl
mont, tnnt the bill paBs. This was
carried without dobato or dissenting
Minister Young mado a verbal repot t
on detention camp matters. Lowers &
Cooko hnd not yet decided about an
extension of lcaso or other disposition
. of their land to tho Government after
I tho term of ono year free had expired.
They gnvo their assent, however, to tho
removal of old buildings erected by tho
Government nfter such year's occu
pancy. Mr. Rlchards'offercd n lease,
after tho year freo, for J7G0 per nn
mini, of tho Vineyard street camp
property, but wished to reserve, with
pro rata reduction of rental, a slto for
n row of stores fronting on tho street,
Tho Government was laying a regula
tion sewer, to bo connected with the
main system when that was ready nnd.
In tho mcantlmo, to carry off only
washing wntcr. In answer to a ques
tion Iron Mr. Iscnborg, If tho soweis
were to bo extended to Walalao, tho
, Minister of tho Interior said It was In
i tho mind of tho Government to ex
