As Btatcd In ycstci day's Ilullptln. the
ndvantago of the meeting of Represen
tatives this afternoon Is to divert the
public mind from tho dubious outlook
that the plague offers.
The legislative session this after
noon will neither make us, break us
nor set us tip In business. If anything
is gained, so much the better. If not,
there Is no serious loss.
The complaints made of the nuisance
created by flooding Queen street, war
rant tho Hoard of Health in calling tho
attention of the Citizens' Committee to
the matter for Investigation.
The Bulletin greets Iload Supervisor
Campbell, hut it would bo interesting
to learn how tho Dole government
overcame its natural aversion to the
"newcomer." it makes a difference
whether the newcomer Is "for or
against" the government doesn't It?
Mr. Dole can accomplish not a little
towards lessening the troubles of the
Chinese merchants by making haste In
the appointment of the Court of
Claims. This body has an Immense
amount" of work to do before tho ques
tion of providing money to pay the
claims will be reached.
If the Hoard of Health consldciu tho
Hotel stables Infected premises, thero
is only ono thing to do in disposing of
the buildings. The Bulletin Is not 1Ih
lKsed to bellovo that President Wood
and his advisers stand In fear of prop
erty owners or the chairman of the
Citizens' Committee. Doth have strong
fl.lmo to iocan!tlnn, lull wa Rfft JQ
reason at this time for declaring a lack
of confidence In the membors of the
l'lrbt catch the rats. This an axiom
leuulting from the poisoning campaign
of the Citizens' Committee. That the
work failed through Insufficient poison
in the compound distributed has yet to
bo proved. No ono Las neon fit to cat a
platter of tho prepared lard to provo
that it is not lit to kill. On the other
hand the fumigating operations have
proved that by this means the rats can
lie caught and killed In goodly num
bers. Fumigation of tho house on
Queen street yesterday afternoon re
sulted In the destruction of more rats
than have been killed throughout tho
whole rity by the poisoning process.
MEETING OP THE HOUSE.
Speaker Kaulukou's call for a ses
sion of the House of Representatives
brings tho Legislative question to n
direct Issue, nntl tho people will await
with considerable Interest what comes
of It. The only thing tho Houso of
Representatives, or such minority as
may respond to tho Speaker's call, can
do Is to address President McKlnlcy
and learn his pleasure. Mr. Dole's ef
forts In this line having been unsuc
cessful, It Is not surprising that rep
resentatives of the people have decided
to take the matter In hand.
Tho Houso cannot legislate. The
constitution states that a smaller num
ber than a quorum may adjourn from
day to day "and compel tho attend
ance of such absent members In such
manner and under such penalties as
each House may provide." Tho manner
In which attendance of a full quorum
of tho House will bo secured Is yet to
be determined unless tho members arm
themselves with shot guns nnd pro
ceed to tho other Islands to corral de
linquent members. It Is not likely that
any effort will bo made to compel tho !
attendance of any member. Those who
consider that the Interests of their
constituents nro best served by doing
nothing nro free to follow tho dictates
of their consciences.
The legislators who gather this af
ternoon stand a chance of being parti
cipants In n moro or less farcical pro
ceeding. On the other hand they are
taking ..ic only course open to them
to secure a positive ruling from Wash
ington authorities to open some way
to make provision for tho Increased
expenses In vailous governmental de-
When a man of YV. C. Wlldcr'a stand
ing questions the authority of tho
Council of State to make appropria
tions, It Is assured that the people will
call their representatives to sharp ac
count for tho moneys appropriated and
the manner In which public funds have
been expended. Wo believe, however,
that tho activity of tho Representa
tives will bo more generally approved
by the people than tho ncgativo atti
tude of tho Senate. Something must bo
done. The Executive Council seems to
be at sixes and sevens nnd able to ac
complish nothing hut a blockade. It
Is up to the elective officers of the Isl
ands to make a move by which positive
Instructions may bo secured.

4. On what principle, if any, is the
Btrcet sprinkling carried on by tho gov
ernment? On n few favored streets, In
cluding Emma street, tho dust is nice
ly laid, but up along Klnau street It
may bo safely said that n street sprink
ler has never been seen. Minister
Young has evidently seen the folly of
trying to keep the town clean with
two odorless excavators and has or
dered fourteen new ones. Wouldn't It
bo n good thing for tho government to
invest in a few moro street sprinkling
carts, do away with tho private street
watering carts, and undertake tho
proper watering of tho whole streets
of tho city?

Punchbowl Taxpayers' Kick.
Editor Evening Ilulletln: Accord
ing to tho recent census taken by tho
Citizens' Sanitary Inspectors, It was
shown that tho most densely populat
ed part of Honolulu consists of that
portion of Punchbowl lying mauka of
Klnau street, nnd hounded on tho east
by Alapal street, and on tho west by
tho Pauoa stream. Taking this fact
Into consideration, tho writer begs to
ask tho Minister of tho Interior nnd
tho President of tho Doard of Health,
through your columns, tho following
1. In tho pioposed extension of sow
crago for which money wns voted by
tho Council of Stnto yesterday, Is tho
thickly populated Punchbowl district
Included? If not, why not?
2. Under tho now Sanitary Regula
tions of tho Doard of Health, garbago,
It Is stated, will bo carted away freo
of chargo by tho Doard of Health carts
"within theso limits; School strcot
mauka, Alapal street east, Llllha Btreet
west nnd seaward by tho water front."
Whoro Is tho connecting link between
School street nnd Alapal street? If It
Is supposed to run along Klnau street,
why Is tho congested district solected
mauka of Klnau street excluded from
such freo system? Is It becauso It Is
Inhabited chiefly by Portuguese? or
becauso those living within Its bounds
nro for tho most part poor peoplo liv
ing In small houses?
