Whether bubonic plague exists In
San Francisco still appears to be n mat
ter of doubt. As was the case In Hono
lulu the authorities have decided and
tho people havo accoptod tho ruling,
that the situation Is sufficiently seri

thcro are sorlous matters afoot which

Good Judgment of tho Council of
State Is shown In the tendency toward
liberality In dealing with tho schools.
There Is hardly a district of the Islands
where tho schools arc not crippled for
lack of funds. Tho emergency Is an
ever present one when school houses
aro crowded beyond the proper capa
city and the number of teachers Is not
sufficient to supply the educational de
mands of the constantly Increasing
number of pupils.
Hawaii's hopes for the cable are
raised a point onco more by tho prom
ising report made to tho Senate by Sen
ator Uale. Reducing the project to
cable construction from San Francisco
to Honolulu, gives tho mcasuro better
chances for success tliau an attempt to
carry through at this session the au
thorization for construction through to
tho Philippines. Thanks to tho party
whip and a working Republican ma
jority In both Houses, tho Adminis
tration measures have received reason
ably prompt attention nnd been passed
without serious delays. If the business
like record of the present Congress Is
kept up to its usual mark Hawaii will

The Plague Scare
in San Francisct
The Post of March 21st, tho day the
Mariposa left, has the following on the
San Francisco plague Affair:
Tho Health Department Is nboi't to
make Its second assault upon the rfunl
tary and other conditions of China
town, nnd with tho rising sun toninr
row nearly 200 stalwart employes of
tho department will inter upon the
task of uprooting ovll spots, turning
untidy stalls Into tho htrcets, destroy
lug undesirable or dangerous struc
tures and fixtures, burning tainted pro
visions and flushing out hidden in-
treats and many nooks which havo no)

A hundred denuttc3 aro being In

many others aro to tako part whu have
hitherto been engaged clsewhcro by
tho health officers.
An order was Issued early this morn
ing, Instructing tho gaibago collutlorh
to leave their loads In Chinatown to
day, to bo burned there. This la In
order to prevent the stuft even being
carried through tho streets of tho city.
On a vacant lot near Dupont and Clay
Btreots a forco of men was at work all

debris as It was brought to them.
A death at 723 Sacramento street,
another at 905 Dupont street and a
third In Oneida placo lire the fatalities
which stimulated tha Health Board
to Immediate action, and from theso It
Is feared a number o! othor deaths will
soon follow. While tho uuthorltles do
not claim that the Subonlo plague has
lifted Its head or broken out under
