Upon tho rending of the report of the
committee on comma ce, n short dis
cussion resulted In Its amendment to
tho form appearing In that afternoons
Dr. Wood, In tho discussion, read a
report of the bacteriologist on fumiga
tion experiments. Bacilli exposed were
killed by the hot nlr process tho samo
us by sulphur. Those In tubes placed
In tho interior of merchandise) wcro not
destroyed. So far as efTlcleucy was
concerned tho hot nlr ns no better
than sulphur, but had the advantage In
time of ono hour against 3G hours. If,
In tho proposal to permit tho shipment
of flour and feed, It was Intended to
cleanse only tho outsldo of tho pack
ages, tho fumigation would bo suffi
cient. The Hoard should not do un
reasonable things. Yet it should do
nothing blindly. Thcro was very little
danger from goods. If It could bo ab
solutely regulated tho removal of re
strictions on 11 great many classes of
merchandise would ho a wlso thing,
but It was utterly Impossible. Pcoplo
would not look beyond their pockets.
Until they wero absolutely suro the
danger was past they could not thiow
down the bars. Merchants were show
ing Indisposition to use the quaran
tine wharf under tho Impression that
everything was gains to be thrown
wldo open, because It was a little more
trouble and a little morn expense. It
nfter tho commlttco know tho results
of hot nlr fumigation they allowed
shipments so treated he had nothing
more to sny.
In answer to Mr. Cooper, tho presi
dent snld thltty days after tho last
ense would be better than ten days for
raising tho quarantine, sixty days bet
ter than thirty and a year better than
sixty days. The recent cases did not
influence tho question ot merchandise.
It was a matter of lurking infection.
Mr. Smith nsked if It woulil make
fumigation more effective to separate
the bags ot flour or bran with strips
of wood or iron no as to allow the hot
nlr to circulate. This need not bo
put In tho report, but tho commltteo
could have It carried out. It was
known that stock was suffering for
feed on tho other Islands.
Dr. Wood said shipments would ho
safo If Mnefarlano's Ideas were adopt
ed. Mr. Smith knew that, but favor
could not bo shown to ono firm that
happened to havo special facilities for
such treatment of goods. Ho nfovtd
to strike out tho last paragraph of
tho report which extended tho list ot
permitted goods, this after consulting
with tho other members of tho com
mittee. Dr. Emerson seconded tho mo
tion, which passed without dissent.
Dr. Wood spoke of tho rush of peo
ple to tako tho serum Injection so that
they might travel. This condition late
ly prescribed took no nccount of per
sonal effects. It was Impossible for tho
Hoard to do wholesalo disinfection of
baggage. This was tho difficulty they
wcro running against. To follow up
people In detention would cause con
siderable expenso when necessary
housing, feeding and transportation
were Included. Many who hnd taken
tho Injection wero from detention
camps, largely of tho classes among
which plague was most likely to break
out. Ho Know It was unsafo to let
theso peoplo travel unless their bag
gago and clothing were disinfected by
iim Board's own nlant.
Dr. Emerson said It was nor, mo
Hoard's nffnlr In ono sense, yet If they
did not do It tho peoplo on tho other
islands would not bo satisfied.
Dr. Wood continued that If thcro was
any danger outsldo of emnnatlons fiom
tho human body, It was from rats and
Mr. Cooper considered that having
nnuouneed that taking tho serum quali
fied for going nway, they must see tho
thing through in thorough manner.
Dr. Wood stated that tho Injection
simply was to bo understood as sav
ing time of quarantine, but tho neces
sity ot being unexposed and of having
personal effects fumigated should bo
stilctly required. It would only bo
necessary to add to tho former reso
lution tho words, "after disinfection of
nil clothing and personal effects under
supervision of tho Hoaul of Health.
Mr. Cooper moved, seconded by Dr.
Kraeison and It was ordered tnat such
was tho sense of tho Board.

other for tho Knneoho Ranch Co. re

Wood remarked that this was u har

kind granted tho other day. The re

Mr. Lowrey said that Dr. Cnr

would affect sugars from this Island.
Dr. Wood remarked that It was easy
to hold things down firmly to ono
place, but very hard to control matters
when once cased up. Ho presented a
petition from n great many merchants
and shipping firms for icmovlng re-
strlctlons from American and Euro

Death certificates of 'ho moo' un

In cases whero patients havo died un

cause of death was upa.ilexy. Swing
no connection between simple stomach
trouble nnd apoplexy n post mortem
was held and tho real cause of death
wns found to bo typhol I malarial fe
This, Dr. Wood stated, was danger
ous to tho community In which tho
deaths occurred. It wis argued by the
Hoard that all case3 where a physician
hud not been In attendance that tho

At tho meeting of tho Hoard of
