TUESDAY MARCH C, 1000,
The decision of tho Sanitary Com
inlttce to continue tho houso to house
Inspection meets the approval of tho
entire community with tho possible
exception of a few of tho sub-Inspectors.
No better system of guarding Ir
responsible Asiatics can bo tlovlsed.
Tho town has suffered so many set
backs that It will bo necessary for n
full month to pass without now cases
appearing, beforo tho business com
munity will feel sufllclent confidence
In the situation to warrant doing away
with this dally patrol.
As was forecast by tho Hulk-tin's
Washington correspondent, tho Hawa
iian bill has had to give way to Porto
Klco, and the determination of Con
gressional ability to legislate tho con
stitution. While this Porto Itlco dls
cusalon has amused a fierce debato and
serious dissension among Republican
members, tho latest despatches glvo
assurance that an agreement has been
reached nnd Porto Itlco will bo
promptly disposed of by tho enactment
of n measure placing a 13 per cent duty
on tho products of this new possession.
Consideration of the protection this no
tion may glvo tho sugar market natur
ally causes Hawaii to approvo of this
disposition of Porto Itlco, provided It
does not prove n boomerang when our
own tariff comes up for action. Pres
ent Indications are, however, that tho
Hawaiian territorial bill will go
through with a rush as soon as Porto
Itlco Is out of the way.
ilrltlsh Joy ovci the final defeat of
(Jen. Croujc Is tempered with marked
admiration, If not sympathy, for tin
splendid flghl the Doers made against
overwhelming odds. The spcctaclo of
Cronjo with n mere handful of men
holding Great Britain's best fighting
men at bay until foices gathered at tho
Doer capital to check Ilrltlsh advance
is a marked demonstration that the
Boor spirit Is not broken and tho war
la by no means at nn end. Although
largo numbers of Doers aro supposed
to havo withdrawn from Ladysmlth,
Duller has been unable to make nti ad
vance. The result Is Inevitable while
England Is allowed a free hand, but
Cronju's defense was such as to as
sure Ilrltlsh citizens that the way of
their generals to tho South African
Republic capitals will bo paved with
dead and dying In numbers yet un
known to Ilrltlsh hlstoiy. It Is a war
of extermination with the natural de
fensive advantages on the side of tho
Doers. If this Is nn example of what
our wars of modern civilization aro to
.be, converts to tho policy of Interven
tion outlined by The Hague Poaco
Conference will Include the people of
every civilized nation.
WAILUKU WANTS A PIIJU.
I Maul NewB.
Now, Walluku has a Chinatown
which Is quite as filthy and dangerous
In some respects as those of Honolulu
and Kahulul, ami It Is the openly ex
pressed opinion of thoso most compe
tent to Judge, that It Is only a question
of time until there Is an eruption of
plague In the Chinatown of Walluku.
How can this bu prevented? The
answer Is simple. There Is only one
known method, and that is to use tho
torch. If tho maknl side of Market
street, commencing at Main street nnd
extending tho entire length of tho
block wcro cleared of Its filthy, pest
breeding shacks, nnd If tho fire should
cross to tho maukn sldo nt desirable
intervals and clear out some of the
pest holes ou that sldo, more would
have been accomplished to rid Wallu
ku of all danger of plague than all tho
quarantlno Inspection nnd disinfection
which may bo applied. Of course It
would bo a costly nnd dlsngreenblo
remedy, but not nearly bo costly or
dlsngreeablo ns ono slnglo well-detlncd
case of bubonic plnguo In thoso limits.
Let tho Doard of Health sco to this.
DIRECT FROM THE COAST.
A deeper significance than at first ap
pears on tho surfaco underlies tho
proposition to run lines of bteanu-rs
from Coast ports directly to other ports
than Honolulu during tho quarantine.
Already tho merchants on Maul nro be
ginning to learn that on goods received
directly from tho Const, they mako a
profit without tho handicap of Inter
Island freights and division with Ho
nolulu middlemen. The wholesalo
houses In Honolulu will havo an Inter
esting problem to solve.
PORTO RICO COMPROMISE
Republicans Reacb Conclusion That
Will be Accepted.
Tariff Reduced to 15 Ptrcent-Presldint
Lends His Influence-Billevts the
Washington, Keb. 2C At tho con
feicnco of House Republicans tonight
on the Porto Rlcan tariff bill nssur
unces were given that tho President
believed the measure constitutional
nnd would approve It If It came to nlra,
nnd nn agreement wns reached to limit
tho operation of tho bill to two years
nnd reduce the duty Imposed by It from
25 to IB per cent of tho American tar
iff. As a result tho Republican lead
ers claim that tho bill will have tho
support of all tho Republicans except
four McCall of Massachusetts, Little
Held of Maine, I.orImcr of Illinois und
Crumpacker of Indiana and that this
loss will bo offset by nmrmatlve votes
of tho opposition. They claim tho
passago of the modified bill Is certain.
After tho conference adjourned at 11
o'clock Chairman Cannon gavo out tho I
following statement of tho amend
ments agreed upon by the conference:
"Tho confcrcnco requested tho Ways
and Means Committee to offer nn
amendment to tho bill ns follows:
'Amend the title to mako It nn act tem
porarily to provide revenue for tho Isl
and of Porto ivico nnd for other pur
poses,' nnd to add tho following sec
tion: "'This net shall be taken and held
to bo provisional In Its purposes, In
tended to meet n pressing present need
for revenue for the Island of Porto Ri
co, and Is not to continue In forco af
ter March 1, 1902.'
"These amendments were adopted
with practical unanimity. Another to
reduce tho duty Imposed by tho act
from 25 to 15 per cent was adopted
by a vote of 105 to 11. A further
nmendment Is to bo offered by tho
Ways and Means Committee to mako
It clear that no double duty Is Imposed;
thnt the payment of ono Internal reve
nue tax is the totnl tax on Importa
"About 125 Republican members at
tended tonight's conference, which was
held In tho hall of tho Houso of Rep
resentatives. Tho members had been
In consultation during tho day dis
cussing plans for nllaylng tho oppo
sition to the bill nnd bringing tho re
calcitrants Into line. So much had been
made by the kickers of the alleged op
position of tho President to tho meas
ure that tho managers were particular
ly desirous of being able to offer somo
assurances that would removo all ob
jections to tho mensuro on thnt score,
and this afternoon tho Republican
members of the Ways and Means Com
mittee, with the exception of McCalli
the Massachusetts dissenter, called on
the President nt tho White House."
Aftor that call Hopkins of Illinois
authorized tho following:
"The President earnestly hopes that
tho Republicans will unlto and stand

HEALTH BOARD MEETING
Dr. Walter Maxwell has written to
the Doard of Health, giving his vlows
ou disinfection of tho soil. Ho holds
thnt, owing to the basic nature of Ho

needed and tho doctor denominates
quicklime as the proper agent. Unless
tho presenco of bacilli bo proved nt a
greater depth, the soil should not be
plowed deeper than two Inches. This
would ensure efllclPiicy at n minimum
After hearing the communication
read tho Doard of Health, at Its meet
ing yesterday afternoon, decided to np
point Dr. Maxwell nt tho head of n
commlttco to tnko charge of soil dis

Dr. Day, on behalf of tho Postmaster
General, stated that hot air fumigation
of mails would not bo acceptable to tho
San Francisco authorities. If disin

The doctor suggested that formaldo

bags It would get Its work In on the

IT IS SAID?
That Thos. A. Edison used to walk up
and down every night In front of the first
house he lighted with electricity untii;the
lights were extinguished, for fear 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 bela
good 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 than with
any other artificial light.
