The Pauahl street Jury Is to be con
gratulated on Its conclusion to extend

tho same lines Is the demand of the
In going over the Board of Health
I'ntlmatcH It appears that tho present
Hoard can never be charged with fail
ure to ask for sufficient funds to keep
the city In proper sanitary condition.
Another Chinatown commission will
accomplish moro for Now Honolulu
than any Legislature Is likely to do.
Such a commission wilt furnish n firm
foundation for tho Legislature to build
Public Interest now centers on tho
ability of Honolulu to break the last
plague free record of which wound up
so disastrously on the unlucky thir
teenth day. Tho people may bo forgiv

Minister Young's "newcomer" broom
is sweeping so clean that any future
road supervisors will have a task to
keep up tho pace. There's, un Ameri
can spring In the business bootheel of
theso newcomers though they are not
One of tho most notable features of
the building permits Is the large num
ber of Asiatics In the list. These are
tho pcoplo bunding the future dwelling
houses for the working people. Host
assured the houses will be properly
crowded unless carefully watched.
It Is to be hoped that tho Superin
tendent of Public Works Is able to as
sure tho public that all tho buildings
for which permits havo been issued in
tho last threo months arc being con
structed according to the regulations
promulgated by the Health Hoard.
It la now assorted that tho Chlneso
having failed to secure the services of
J. W. Glrvln to represent them beforo
Congress turned to Robert Wilcox for
assistance. In matter of capacity for
this work theso gentlemen divide hon
ors on tho basis of six to one and halt
dozen of the other.
Thu Citizens' Sanitary Committee
found tho first necessity of tho rat
campaign was to "catch tho rat." So
In tho consideration of a mayor for
Honolulu the first necessity Is to ob
tain a municipal charter. This can
not be accomplished by opposition to
an American territorial law for Ha
waii. Again tho pcoplo of Wulluku aro
forced to whlstlo for their much needed
water works. When this public work
is completed Wulluku will have reason
to set apart n day of thanksgiving and
Jollification In honor of a public de
partment that never allows itself to
move along progressive lines unless
chased up by a luna's whip.
Tho Chicago Tribune says that Gov
ernor Tanner of Illinois Is In tho fight
to defeat Senator Cullom, "body, "soul
anil breeches." If the people of Illi
nois have not gono entirely daft they
will consign Tanner, body soul and
breeches to the political scrap heap, As
against a man of Cullom's national
standing und ability, Tanner Ik hardly
worthy of mention.
Surgeon Clcneial Sternberg empha
sizes tho vuluo of sun and sanitation In
staying tho progress of tho bubonic
plague. A question pioporty holders
aro likely to agitato beforo many weeks
Is whether, In view of tho superabun
dance of sunshlno with which Honolulu
has been blessed, It Is necessary to al
low tho burned districts to llo fal
low as long as required In tho Orient.
It certainly will bo difficult for tho I
Hoard of Health to hold tho property
holders In check after tho quarantine
la onco raised. All of which points to
tho Immedlato necessity of appoint
ing a now Chinatown commission to
deal with tho subject of now streets
TENEMENT MOUSE NEED.
Tho crowding of Asiatic boarding
houses, construction of new shacks
and raising of rents on such houses as
poor working peoplo are forced to oc
cupies causes the average citizen of
Honolulu to question whether, even at
this stage, tho lessons of the plague
visitation have been fully learned.
Public spirit has given way to a grasp
for tho almlnlitv dollar. Human na
ture Is the same In Hawaii as In New
York city where proper tenement
houses .were not erected until owners
of property were forced to rccognlzo
the rights of poor pcoplo by the city
If Honolulu can solve Its "shack"
problem In the samo manner that New
York city has approached tho tenement
house question, not only will tho com
fottB of the poorer classes be properly
provided but safety from epidemics that
rule In the Orient will bo assured. Tho
public spirit of monied men and pro
pel ty holders can find no better ex
pression at the present tlmo than in
the construction of tenement houses
of a modern type, that shall not only
bo sanitary In surroundings but pos-'
scsslng conveniences now entirely for
eign to the usual home now within the
means of the poorer classes.
Tho tendency among too many pro
pcrty holders at tho present time Is
to lease to Asiatics. Provided tho rent
money comes In regularly little atten
tion Is given to the character of houses
put up or to the number of people oc
cupying tho premises. Tho Asiatic
leaseholder who thinks only of tho
money thero is In It, crowds his houses
to their full capacity. Tho pcoplo are
forced to take what they can get.
If the wealthy people of this city
will take a personal Interest In tho
tenement house question, instead of al
lowing tho Asiatics to go their own
gait, their Incomes will not bo decreas
ed. Tho compensation for the worry
and trouble which this personal atten
tion may Involvo can bo put down to
philanthropy of which this city, as
regards tho homes 'of working classes,
Is sadly In need.
The view of conditions In the courts
taken by our correspondent "Lawyer"
Is that of active factor In legal cir
cles whoso opinions arc not warped by
personal or political influences. It Is
useless to make light of the fact that
our courts are In a chaotic condition
that calls for prompt action. Legal
business is piling up at a rapid rato
and both the Circuit and Supreme
Courts arc seriously crippled.
Hawaii has ever been lucky. Tho
play of politics resulting from tho Por
to Rlcan problem Is along lines to in
dicate that the Democrats will tumblo
over each other In tho rush to vote for
the Hawaiian bill. The vote on tho
Porto Rico bill was to havo been taken
Feb. 27 and Hawaii was next on tho
Congressional list. Hawaii has not
only old friends but old time enemies
In Its favor.
DEMANDS IN THE COURTS.
Editor Evening llulletln: Cases aro
not only piling up In the Circuit Court
but they nro getting much In arrears
In the Appollato Court which has now
only two actlvo Incumbents. Thero Is
tnlk of a pro tempore Judge or a per
manent third Judge for tho Circuit
Court, but what Is tho uso of too many
Judges to hear and determlno cases In
tho first Instance, from whose decisions
appeals would naturally bo taken to
tho higher court, if, as seems to bo tho
enso at present, thero Is Inability to
dlsposo of tho largo amount of the
business on hand with reasonable
promptness and dispatch?
Tho Chief Justice's chair has now
been vacant nearly ono year. It Is
all very nlco filling the vacant chair at
tho tlmo or nrgulng the cases, but when
It comes to tho time for deliberating
and reasoning upon them, the Circuit
Judges called to fill tho vacancy aro un-
amo to comer with tho others owing
to tho largo amount of work already
In their own departments.
Thus tho determlnotlon of cases
submitted to tho Appollato Court Is
very much handicapped. This delay
cortnlnly works hardship on tho poorer
class of litigants, and is not In keeping
with tho prosperous condition of tho
country. In somo Instances litigation
Is now said to bo too slow nnd costly.

It Is not surprising that In a population so vas

trace back their ancestry for centurks, that even with
families of no note the ramifications are extraordi
nary, the ties of relationship often varying; from
Peers lo Peasants, though ail springing from one
tree. The announcement that there ts near y $400,
000,000 In money and estates going a-begging sounds
a little extravagant but It will not appear so extraor
dinary when It Is rememberrd that ike amount Is Has

The New Year Begets
FOR THE BOYS. Have you'ever stop
ped to think what a difference tliere l 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
out. That Is not good economy, for If you
would pay a little more, and consider qual
ity and make, vnu would have a suit- for
the boy that would always look well and )
outwear two suits of the Inferior grades. ,'

IT IS SAID?
That Thos. A. Edison used to walk up
and down every night hi front of the first
house he lighted with electricity untll.the
lights were extinguished, for fear that the
house would burn down; and we are sure
that any Irsurance man present, If this
house were wired and lighted In the same
way as that first building would be "a A?
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.
