It Is n question whether hoodoo lion
ore rest with Sunday or the Star's re
marks on "brighter prospects."
If tho events of Saturday and Sunday
aro a foretaste of what's coming with
tho various nddltlons through Increas-
vil Immigration, future appropriations
Bhould bo figured with a view to In
creaHlng the police forco of the city.
Dr. Wood's selection of Dr. Pratt as
Military building Inspector Is particu
larly satisfactory slnco It puts a most
Important woik In tho hands of a man
who by professional training nnd
business experience has had
upcclal training for tho duties Imposed
upon htm. This Is tho second man
whom President Wood has selected for
permanent work from the ranks of the
lieutenants marshaled by Supt. Mc
Veigh who has ever been a right hand
man In the work of tho Health Hoard.
That Dr. Pratt and Mr. Towso have
proved their special fitness for the po
sition to which they have been ap
pointed is a trlbuto to the generalship
and good Judgment of Mr. McVeigh as
nn assistant In the executive work of
MR. HUMPHREYS FOR JUUGU.
That A. S. Humphreys should receive
tho suppoi t of a majority of the mem
bers of the Hawaiian liar for tho posi
tion of associate Justice of the Su
premo Dcnch Is a natural response to
tho legal capacity and sterling per
sonal qualities which Mr. Humphreys'
career in these Islands has evidenced.
Coming to the Islands unknown and
unheralded Mr. Humphreys has, by
strict attention to duty and a high de
gree of Integrity gained the highest
esteem of the community generally and
established u legal reputation that
quickly placed him among the leaders
of tho bar.
Mr. Humphreys couples with his le
gal, and judicial ability nn Indepen
dence and vigor of character typically
American which tho Bulletin believes
is much needed In tho Judicial as well
as tho executive brandies of the fu
ture Territory. Ho Is well versed in
the law and the foundation principles
of American government and his ap
pointment to the bench will add char
acter, dignity and ability to our local
The general principles expounded in
tho pamphlet Issued by tho Treasury
Department relatlvo to the shipment of
goods from districts Infected with
yellow fever havo a direct bearing on
tho local commercial situation as ef
fected by tho plague. While It h not
possible, to make a direct nnd detailed
comparison between nn epidemic
of yellow fever and bubonic plaguo,
tho conditions that brought about tho
conclusions of the Marino Hospital
Service relative to mcrchnndlso and
tho objects to bo accomplished aro
much tho same.
In past years an outbreak of yellow
fover In tho Southern States has been
accompanied by tho establishment of
absolute quarantine, often supported
by shot guns, and a complete embargo
cm all trade, from tho infected districts
whether tho disease was epidemic or
not. This condition of affairs was
ruinous to business Interests and not
in keeping with common sense delib
eration of Federal and local officials.
Various conferences were held with tho
result that regulations for tho ship
ment of merciinndlso wero mado that
' did away with tho unnecessary features
of tho absolute quarantine. At tho re
quest of tho Surgeon General, Surgeon
Carter prepared a. statement, on tho
subject, the principal points of which
aro given nt length in another column.
Tho Bulletin Is disposed to agree
with the business community that tho -
. ... .
tlmo has arrived when n greater frco
dom ot Inter-Island traffic may bo nl
lolwed without subjecting tho other
Islands to serious danger. The
Maguo . not epidemic and 'has not
im-imi iui muru iiiuii u iiiuiiiu unit in uu i
tlmo slnco the first outbreak could tho
wholesale dlstiict of tho town bo con
sidered infected nor can It bo so con
sidered nt the present tlmo. If this
district Is to be considered Infected It
will bo tlifllcult to explain 'why tho
plague has not run rampant through
out tho residence sections where goods
from tho nicicantlle houses have been
The Mnilno Hospital Service, It will
bo noted, lnys as much stress upon
tho dangers of over stringency as It
docs on lax methods. This Is brought
out by Surgeon Carter's reference to
"sanitary smuggling" nnd also his
statement, "to require the disinfec
tion of a largo amount of merchandise,
knowing Hint 90 per cent of it docs
not need it, will generally result lu not
taking the requisite pains with tho 10
per cent whlci docs nnd In which tho
danger lies." It will bo remembered
that Mr. I.ocbcnstcln complained that
freight on the unpermitted list nt the
time he was here had been landed on
tho Island of Hawaii. It had come
from Honolulu notwithstanding the
Bhnrp watch that was being kept. It Is
also n question whether tho wholesale S
disinfection required of nil goods leav-
Ing tills port wjll not result In moro
serious dangers to outsldo districts
than would bo accomplished by making
a larger frco list.
Certainly no complaint can bo mado
by tho authorities of tho spirit In which
the meirnntlle houses generally have
accepted tho strict regulations which
havo been made. How long tho spo
radic cases will continue. Is impossible
to say, but certain it is that mercantile
houses nro suffering hardships that
should be relieved as promptly ns pos

The New Year Begets
FOR THE BOYS. Have you ever stop
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
olten 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 fur a buy, 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, ynu would have a suit for
the boy that would alwavs look well nnd
outwear two suits of the Inferior grades. I

That Thos. A. Edison used to walk up

house he lighted with electricity until the

house would burn down; and we are sure
that any Irsurance man present, If .his
house were wired and lighted In the wimo
way as that first building would be a
gfod deal more scared than was'Edlson.
In the'short space of time that lias passed
