Tho wonder Is that a church rcpn

unlverslt) bred sanitary engineer who
has made plumbing a specialty ought
to be a happy medium that will give
satisfaction to all concerned. If ho

Board will do well to hire a blacksmith
or a sailor who will make such n botch
of the work that nnybody who knows

The prevailing sentiment pervading
all the opposition offered municipal

toward the advocacy ot placing tho
sewer tax In the hands ot the Superln
tendent of Public Works Instead of
establishing a general tax for sewn
maintenance. There aro few absolute

There are few people who stop to
consider the magnificent work that Is
done, tho Uvea and property saved, by
the United SUtea Life Saving Service
On occasion of particularly distressing
disasters, men who guard Malnlanl
coasts get full recognition for the dis
play of courage and thoughtlessness for
personal safety which their position de
mands. The dally drudgery of llfo In
the Isolated stations and the dangers
faced during every storm that sweeps
the coasts as a rule pass unnoticed.
The nnnual report of the Oenor.il
Superintendent of the Life Saving Ser
vice furnishes an nrray ot data that U
an eye-opener to tho average lands
man. In no department of govern
ment, do the American people receive
greater flnanchl return on their In
vestment to say nothing of the Ihc.i
saved from nn ocean grave. The sc

amount of property Involved In vessels
nnd cargoes was $9,470,190. Of this
property $7,234,690 waa saved and $2.
235 500 lost. Only 01 vessels wcr
totally lost. The passengers and sail
ors whose lives were Imperilled was
2,055, of whom 2,007 were saved and
48 lost. In addition to these large dis
asters there were 329 casualties to
small craft such as yachts and sill
boats. Only five of tho 781 persons on
board theso boats were lost. The
property Involved was $270,070 of
which $250,770 was saved. Assltan"o

It seems hardly necessary for tho sil

Although Hawaii Is noted for Its
calm waters and favored coasts, tbcto
are points along the northern dlfM
where life saving stations would ac
complish not a little towards glvin;
greater protection to life nnd property

Editor Ecnlng nulletln: Permit me
to correct the statement In our col
umns, made on Mr. Gill's authority
tint Mr. Zlegenfuss was city editor of
tho Chronicle when I npplled for tin
position of reporter there and that he
made me known to the managing edi
tor. Mr. Young. The tlmo was October
1S92 and Mr. Hudson was city editor
as he had been for fourteen cars pre
viously. My Introduction to Mr. Young
wns by tho hand of tho Chronicle's
proprietor, Mr. De Young. I have never
been under personal obligations to Mr
Zlegenfuss and If I had been that would
not havo permitted me to withhold
from the Journal that cmplojs me an
