Tho decision of tho Executives Coun
cil to call for no appropriations for
public buildings, when tho necessity
for such buildings cannot bo question
ed, Is a typo of territorial economy
that finds small favor with tho people.
It Is tho economy that saves nt tho
spigot and loses at tho bung. This is
a million dollar country, not a ten cent
cross roads with two houses and a haystack.
Tho Board of Health may depend
upon universal support from tho peo
ple In Instituting a continued and ef
fective campaign against tho rats. Tho
Board now has full swing and In view
of tho Indifferent results from the Citi
zens' Committee campaign, a now lino
of attack will bo readily accepted. The
rata are such an active factor In the
continuation of tho plague that the
work of extermination should not bo
given up because complete success waa
not secured at tho outset.
In view of tho Health Doard having
established regulations admitting In
creased shipments to tho other Islands,
It is up to the steamship companies tc
make an equally strenuous effort to
provldo prompt despatch for tho large
amount of goods offered for shipment.
Honolulu merchants have been shut up
for such a long period that they natu
rally fret under tho delays. Some
method should at least bo devised to
guard against tho necessity of mer
chants being required to fumlgato their
goods a second time. Tho expenso and
trouble of this process is such as to
cut out any profits when goods are
sent through the mill a second time.
Whether Gen. Cronjo will find the
cllmato of St Helena conduclvo to gen
oral comfort Is of practically Uttlo mo
ment In Its influenco on American
opinion when compared with tho spirit
with which they receive the announce
ment of tho British to practically exile
their worthy prisoner. Fow aro ready
to believe that Oreat Britain would
place a gallant fighter like Cronjo to
any place whero his health would be
endangered, But why should the Brit
tab. send Cronjo from Capo Colony In
'the first instance. Tho only crime he
.has committed is to conduct himself
as a loyal, patriotic general should,
and put up a light that brought words
of praise from tho generals opposing
him. Compare Great Britain's assign
ment of Cronjo to tho Island of St.
Helena with th.o treatment tho
'Americans accorded Admiral CcrVcra
and tho defeated Spanish generals, and
you nave the secret of America's dis
approval of tho British action.
demands nor Is It all that tho pcaplo
havo a right to expect.
Tho Executive seems determined not
to consider tho appointment of a com
mission to consider the matter. Homo
action should be taken, however, If
the authorities have any dcslro to
properly protect tho business district
of this growing and progressive city.
In view of tho difficulties thnt can bo
foreseen and tho developments of the
futuro for prompt solution of this
problem that cannot bo forecast, thcro
Is every reason why tho extension of
flro limits and tho new plans for Chi
natown blocks should bo placed among
tho emergency measures to rccclvo the
attention of the Council of State.

THB CHINATOWN EMERGENCY.
What Is to bo done with Chinatown
Is a problem still before tho people
With the Council of State taking the'
place of the Legislature, the chances
aro that the next legislative session
will not bo held for a year to como
whether tho Territorial bill Is passed
or not If this bill Is passed tho Gov
ernor will have authority to call a
special election and legislative session.
At best, however, this cession cannot
bo held until well along Into next
summer, when tho question will arise
whether it Is advisable to go to tho ex
penso of a special election when the
regular election period Is so near.
Meanwhile- tho people must depend
upon the Board of Health to hold the
burned district in its present condition
until somo legislative power extends
tho lire limits and provides for tho
proper construction of the streets and
business blocks. Should the plague bo
kept in check so that tho bane of an
Infected port may bo raised an object
for which tho authorities aro constant
ly striving with apparently good
chances of success in the near futuro
It will bo a very difficult proposition
for tho Health Board to combat tho
general clamor which will certainly
arlso from property holders, to go
ahead with new buildings.
Honolulu bids fair to wake up in tho
near futuro to the fact that its flro
limits have not been extended, the au
thorities powerless to prevent the con
struction of wooden buildings in tho
old Chinatown district and powerless
that he was satisfied with tho compost
tlon of the Court Ho shortly after
ward withdrew, leaving Deputy Attor
ney Ocneral Dolo to represent tho Itc
public in tho caso beforo thu Court.
Mr. Magoon asked If they should pro
ceed with their argument, to which
question Justice Frenr nodded assent. ;
Mr. Gear desired to know what po-
union ue uuu Air. numpnrcyB were in.
They claimed the right to object on
tho ground of tho Chief Justice's inca
pacity. Even if the resignation wore
not effective, they held tho Chief Jus
tice had abandoned his oUIvj.
Mr, Magoon did not consider it ne
cessary to inquire whether tho Chief
Justice had abandoned his office. I
would consider the decisions of this
Court valid If It could do shown that
the Chief Justice has not resigned. I
am tbcreforo opposed to any attempt
at establishing tho fact of tho Chief
' Mr. Gear would not Insist on that
point In this caso, but would let It go
over to one of his own coses. The
Court in the meantime might render
that question unnecessary by a deci
sion on tho sole matter of tho resigna
tion. Justice Frenr Decides.
Justlco Frcar, after consulting Jus
tlco Whiting and Judgo 'Perry, an
nounced that the Court thought It best
to consldor tho question on tho grounds
raised by counsel in tho present case.
Air. Long, associated with Mr. Ma
goon,. then began his argument for tho
plaintiffs, beginning with tho documen
tary eviucnco as to tho legality of tho
Court Did the endorsement by Presi
dent Dole vacate the offlco of Chief
Justice? Was there anything left to
do or bo performed to mako tho resig
nation complete? No. Parole evidence
to qualify a plain, slmnlo and unnuall-
fled resignation would be without au
thority and without parallel. If any
body were ablo to write his full Inten
tions in a resignation It ousht to bo the
Chief Justlco, who was a man experi
enced not merely In ordinary business
but tho administration of law. Mr.
Long anticipated his adversaries, if
there vore any ho said, in quoting a
decision from 8 .wallftn In The Queen
vs. John Costa and Anna CC21& This
waa .written by Chief Justlco Judd and
Joined In by Justices S. B. Dolo and
R. P. BIckerton. Tho question was
the validity of Indictments presented
by W. A. Whiting comissioned as
Deputy Attorney General by Attorney
General Crclghton after tho Cabinet to
which tho Jatter belonged. hft4 re
signed under ft Vote of want of confi
dence by tho Legislature. The resig
nations wero dated Dccomber 1 but the
new Cabinet of Queen Lllluokalanl
only took ofllco on December 8, 1892.
Tho decision upheld tho theory that
the machinery of government could
not bo allowed to Btop, and in that caso
the acts of tho Attorney General wero
held valid between his resignation and
the' appointment of his successor. Yet
the Court intimated that tho accept
ance of a resignation was not essential
to its completeness. It only went so
far on the other sldo as to say that It
was tho duty of tho sovereign to ap
point her ministers as soon as possible
Mr. Long went on to nrguo that the
present case bad not tho samo basin
as that quoted. There would bo much
Injustice nnd Inconvenience from an
interregnum of tho Supreme CourU
lasting a few months, but It would not
put a stop to tho machinery of govern
ment in general.
It was noticeable that, while the at
torney for the plaintiffs was arguing
tho legality question, tho Deputy At
torney General absented himself in the
lobby, apparently In keeping with tho
Attorney Generals' tacit declaration
that the Government declined to fight
