The report of the Hoard of Health
HhlppliiB committee, while It doe- not
Kraut all that Ih nRlccri, l n move In the
right direction, and It Is wif" to ok
Hume that the restrictions on intor-lsl
and trafflc will ho raised as rapidly its
possible. It Is to ho hoped It will not
be necessary to call the attention of
any merchant to the fact that attempts
to evade the regulations will result
disastrously to the whole business
Of tht! $073,110.50 worth of goods
imported from Japan during ISM,
$2fi8,403.1U or nearly half the nmount
repreeentH foodstuffs used almost ex
clusively by laborers on the planta
tions. Importations from China Bhow
a large proportion of foodstuffs though
not as great as from Japan. Prom thlH
our authorities mny gain a fair cstl
mato of the damago dono mercantile
interests nsulting from the restric
tions on trallle with the Orient, riic
authorities cannot be expected to re
relvo Imports dangerous to public
health. This traffic, however, repre
sents vested Interests that will fare
possible ruin If the trade is completely
abut off. Though the merchants are
"Asiatics" they deserve serious con
sideration. As previously stated by
the Hullctln the general scheme, of the
campaign should bo conducted with a
view to reducing the restrictions ac
cording to tho tules followed in the
principal ports of tho world.
SMALL PARMER'S OPPORTU
NITY. The annual report of the Collector
General Customs tells a story of
Hawaii's wonderful progress that has
never been equalled, and which demon
strntes conclusively the benefits ilerlV'
ed by Hawaii by nnuexatlon. That tho
division in tho annexation dividends
has not been one sided Is shown by the
large Increase In Imports from the
United States. Tho assured progress
of Hawaii gives further promise that in
the record of this banner year of Huwn
lla's commercial history, the limit has
not been reached and with the exten
sion of Amerkan tariff laws the mer
chants of the Mainland will reap still
larger harvests from this Held.
Ah regards the main Industry of the
country, the custom house figures. Indi
cate that the people of the Islands
have made the most of their oppor
tunities. The snmo enn hardly be said
of the small farming interests, Splen
did Income from tho sugar Industry
has very naturally caused tho people,
workmen, farmers, large nml small
llnauclern to forget tho smaller Inter
ests. That there Is on opportunity for
tho small farmer In Hawaii has over
been asserted. The land Is he.ro. tho
climate Is favorable and tho custom
Iioiiho figures prove that there Is a lo
cal market which should be supplied
from tho local field.
During tho year 18'J'J, Hawaii Import
ed butter valued nt ffil.SCO.UI!, eggs to
tho valuo of $1(5,103.30. over $19,000
worth of potatoes and $21,701.78 worth
of cheese. In other words tho short
age of supplies which are the direct
pioduct of tho American farmer forced
the people of Hawaii to pay out $118,
208.80 In foielgn markets to supply tho
local demand. Fresh meats, bacon,
salt beef and pork wero Imported to tho
value of $S7, 120.12. All these products
can be raised in Hawaii anil tho high
prices ruling In Honolulu markets
eggs for Instance at CO cents a dozen
Is a guarantee that tho small farmer
can realize good sized prollts that can
not Ito equalled in any farming distrlrt
of tho States.

half English, half Tahltlan, wns a pa
tient of Dr. Armltnge. Sunday night
at 0 k m. 1 wns sent for In a hurry
and found tho woman dead, not having
seen her nt all during life. The post
moitcm showed typical plague BpWn,
lungs and heart, with a gland In tho
left femoral region as large as a wal
nut. In Justice to Dr. Armltnge, I will
say the woman concealed her symp
toms. I hnvo learned from reliable
sources that this woman wns very In
timate with some Chinese people. In
a Chinese trunk In hcr'houso we found
about twenty bolts of new goods,
known to have como from tho Infected
Chinese store, n large quantity of
dresses and some new suits of men's
clothing, which wero mndo In tho Chi
nese tailor shop in tho building where
two deaths occurred. All tho buildings
have been burned nnd the people aro
In quarantine. After careful Inspec
tion, I fear that nearly nil the rest of
tho town will huvo to be burned bcofrc
wo nro through. Yesterday a Japanese
woman died quite suddenly at Kihel.
Mr. Wlnslow brought tho body down
for examination. Tho appearances at
post mortem and with mlcroscopo wero
suspicious, but I did not get what I
deemed absolute proof; hence did not
pronounce It plague. I had tho body
cremated, too house burned, and Ki
hel Is now under strict guard, while we
are awaiting developments. This af
ternoon I inspected tho warehouses
and found soverul dead rats. I exam
ined the freshest one and found what I
believe to bo plague bacilli.
The general health of tho camp Is
excellent, nnd wo will shortly have
somo 300 people nt liberty. There Is
plenty of work for nil tho men, and
there will bo no hardship for those who
choose to work. I took tho liberty to
nnmo the camp after yourself, ns you
wero not hero to prevent It.
The steamer Clevelnnd, from San
Francisco, is now unloading a general
cargo at Kihel. On board is a quanti
ty of Chinese goods which Mr. Zum-
walt tells mo Is Oriental freight rcshlp

Wnlliiku, Feb. 28. Two sick rats
wero found In tho Knhulul storo (II. C.
& S. Co.'s) yesterday morning nnd on
examination by Dr. Garvin ho declared
them to contain plague germs. The
rats were cremated.
Tho storo has been quarantined for
fifteen ilnyn. Dr. Garvin will write
to the Honolulu Iloai-u of Health about
tho matter ns ho will not on his own
responsibility condemn a property
said to be worth from $00,000 to $90,

ped to think what a difference there is In
the makes of boys' clothing ? Many suits
are bought because the price is low. It Is
often the price that governs the purchaser,
and not the quality or the substantial
makes. This theory seems to be based on
the Idea that any kind of a suit Is good
enough for a boy, as he will soon wear It

IT IS SAID ft
That Thos. A. Edison used to walk up
and down every night In front of the first
house he lighted with electricity untlllthe
lights were extinguished, for fpr that the
house would burn down; and we are sure
that any Irsurance man present, If his
house were wired and lighted In the same
way as that first building would be) a
gcod deal more scared than was Edison.
In the short space of time that has passed
since then so many Improvements have
been Introduced that now a house lighted
by electricity Is a better fire risk lhan with
any other artificial light.
