HEALTH BOARD MEETING
Many Important Matters Considered
and Transacted Yesterday.
Bscf Cattle Contract Awarded to Sam. Patktr
Questions Abjut Quarantine Stilled
Dr. C. U. Wood, presldcn
Day, Geo. W. Smith and F
, Dr. V. It.
constituted the meeting of tho Iloaul
of Health yesterday afternoon. Dr. C.
I.,. Gnrvin, medical executive otllcer,
'1 ho president brought up n request
of Japanese merchants for leac to ship
Bako and sol to the other inlands. Also
their request to bo allowed to Import
mcrchnndlso from Japan, since no
plague hud been leportcd for sixty dayq
in that country.
Mr. I.owrey was opposed to shipping
goods to ports on other islands, where
thoio were no facilities for fumigation.
Mr. Smith, among othci reasons for
deferring action, mentioned tho pub
lished statement that Surgeon General
Wyman had recommended that tho
United States take charge of quai&n
tlno In Hawaii.
Dr. Day, on tho Importation question,
said tho physicians In Japan wcro
anxiously waiting to fco whether
plague might not break out again with
tho coming of summer.
Mr. Smith moved, Mr. I.owrey sec
onded and It carried unanimous), that
permission to ship sake and bo I be re
fused. Tho president reportsd a convcrrFa
tlon with Sam. Parker about the Molo
knl cattlo contract. It was decided to
accept Mr. Parker's tender, tho con
tractor having ngrecd to aid tho Hoard
In trying to get moro favorable carry
ing rates from Wllder's Steamship Co.
Illlo Request Considered.
A letter wns received from tho Illlo
health committee by Dr. Moore, secre
tary, remonstrating against tho possl
blo granting of permission of travel lo
tho island of Hawaii from Honolulu be
fore twenty-one days elapsed slnco tho
appearance of n plngtio caso In any part
of Honolulu. They also stated that
thcro was no lack of provisions there.
If their wishes wcro disregarded tho
agents of tho Hoard forming tho com
mittee would resign their commissions.
In tho discussion that followed con
stdeintlon wns given to tho principle of
self-preservation which might reason
ably bo adopted by nny community.
Dr. Wood held that, whllo it was
competent for tho Hllo agents or peo
plo to speak for their own district re
garding tho supply of necessaries, they
had no right to assume tho representa
tion of other districts. That was
whero trouble had arisen before.
It wns the general sense of the meet
ing that tho letter was uncalled for,
it being recalled that the Illlo agents
had, after duo deliberation, informed
tho Iloard that they would carry out
Dr. Wood submitted tho drnft of n
reply, which was adopted and handed
to Dr. Gnrvin tor transmission by the
Klnnu that evening. .
Dr. Herbert entered tho room to nsl;
permission to drive to Oahu plantation,
whero he was called. Thcro was no
train convenient, nnd ho would ask to
havo his train permit changed.
Dr. Wood said tho people down
country wcro very strongly opposed
to having any animals from Honolulu
admitted to their territory. They had
so declared themselves at a mccctlng.
On Dr. Herbert volunteering to wash
his horso In tho Moanalua sricnm en
tho way down, the desired permit w.ih
granted nnd tlio.doctor wont out happy.
A letter was read from Mr. Ziimwall
regarding a certain lot of sugar In
wnrehouso at Kahulul, and tho presi
dent gave a history of tho matter.
Thcro was an understanding with Dr.
Carmlohnel, U. S. M. II. S., on tho mat
ter, of which probably Mr. Zumwalt
was not uware.
Tho president read a letter with
resolution enclosed from nil the agents
of sugar plantations on this Island,
giving tho Hoard "Hall Columbia" for
alleged dereliction of duty In the mat
ter of travel on tills island, nml orrer
Ing suggestions for reforming its prac
tices and methods. Dr. Wood stated
that, in tho absence of n Hoard meet
ing, lie had answered the letter on Sat
urday nftemoon, nnd now submitted
his answer. Ho rofcrrcd sarcastically,
In reading tho sugar men's letter, to

Somo discrepancy had been raised by

At a very early hour ho nnd 11

went to the Iwllei butts for a llttlo rifle
practice. Ickl was chosen as marker
and tho men began to bhoot. After a
little leki stuck out his head from be

quite n lull In tho shooting nnd he
wished to learn what the cause wus.
Just at tills moment Chas. Kcalohn'H

poor 0110 and tho ball passed through

tho skull. A half or even n quartor of

death for tho marker.
Another report from Dr. Hoffmann
