Charles Eliot Norton of Harvard
proves conclusively that his Christmas
eve dinner this year gave him another
bad attack of dyspepsia.
Klllplnoa who killed a woman for her
witchery had possibly been reading of
what some of our American ancestors
did to witches In Salem not many years
'TIs better late than never. The
presence of- the new road roller and
"something doing" towards filling up
the holes In King street Is a pleasant
reminder that the road department h.ii
not gone entirely out of business.
Should McKlnley signify his Inten
tion of extending his western trip to
Hawaii, the government forces would
redouble their opposition to a muni
cipality. The mayor of Honolulu

Judge Galbratth was reminded this
morning that It Is not safe to Josh the
actors. If Galbratth Is a type ef all
the Democrats McKlnley intends to
appoint the people won't raise any so

In Hawaii where they are sure of

The experience of the animal trans
port Klntuck goes to snow that the
larger the vessel and consequent in
creased number of animals carried, the
more satisfactory is the condition ot
the. cargo. Should this transport con
tlnue her good record to the end of her
voyage It will be another feather In the
cap ot the Yankee officers.
There Is an element of truth in the.
assertion of the newly acquired citizen
who went to the States in order that he
might share In the true American free
dom. This man Is a rebellious Fili
pino and will unquestionably find him
self less hampered In New York for in
stance than In Manila, where the pnn
clpal business is hatching plots to
overthrow American rule.
American tobacconists state there Is
a marked falling off in the demand for
cigarettes, a fact that is to be greeted
with great Joy. It is prosperity as
much as the higher education that Is
bringing this about. During the hard
times of '93 all tobacco manufacturers
found an Increased demand for cigar
ettes and cheap cigars. The return to
old conditions Indicates that the Ame--
Ican people require continued pros
perity to save them from the degener
ating Influence of the cigarette.
The Bulletin is informed that the
motive ot some of those taking up the
fisheries question Is to secure legisla
tion that will nullify the Territorial
law wiping out present fishing right!,
It Is to be hbped that this Is not true
of any; It Is to be believed untrue ot
the majority. The suggestion ot
schemes on foot, however, is timely in
that It should place members of the
Legislature on guard against any at
temtp to defeat opening up the fishing
rights of our shores to all cltlien.i.
Laws to protect the young fish by regu
lating the character of nets are to bo
approved at all times. Protect the
fish but let no .Vamlne of leKlslatlve
action be allowed to check th(f finbeV-
man In gaining an honest living.
CHANCE WITHOUT INCREA8C.
Opponents of a municipality tor Ho
nolulu are prone to "make a point" on
the Increase ot officers as a factor in
Increase of taxation. By Inference, it
not by direct statement they seek to
create the Impression that a city gov
ernment for Honolulu means duplicat
ing the offices at the same salaries now
Nothing can be further from the fact
provided the Legislature deals'' with
official salaries and the municipal
charter as becomes the changed condl
tlons. A new rating In salaries
throughout the Territory should be es
tablished with the salaries paid the
Governor and secretary as a basis.
This means or should mean a reduction
all along the line among the heads ot
departments. The condition which al
Iowb the heads of departments to draw
a larger salary than the governor or
Judges ot the courts Blioulcl not be al
allowed to continue. Figuring from tho
Federal basis as well as the amount
that ought to be sufficient to obtain
good men for the positions 13,000 i
year ougjit to bo qui to enough for de
partment heads who In former days
formed the Executive Council, The dis
tinct saving In this particular line
might well bo continued throughout
the Islands In the Sheriff's depart
ment, the Attorney General's report to
the contrary notwithstanding.
As regards the local police- depart
ment the Increased expense will bo
practically nothing under tho munici
pality. The present police fores should
be taken over by the city leaving the
High Sheriff with at least no more
functionaries than are required by tho
United States marshal.-1 'Many seem
to be of an opinion that city govern
ment wll require the present force di
rected by the High Sheriff and an ad
ditional number under the city mar
What Is true of the police depart
ment also holds good with the Depart
ment of Public Works In which tho
present road supervisor fulfills prat
tlcally the same duties as would fall
most heavily upon the city superin
tendent ot public works. And thus It
Would continue throughout the vari
ous departments. The Increase ot city
officials means a corresponding de
crease of Territorial officials with tho
result that the burden of salaries would
fall no more heavily upon the taxpay
er than does the big salary list of Ter
ritorial officials today. The active offlco
holding advocates ot municipal delay
are well aware of this. It Is the change
of the source of control that furnlshci
the supreme motive of their opposition.
porto m mm
Jacksonville, Fla., Dec. 22. Dr. A.
D. Williams, assistant sugcon ot th-5
United States army, has arrived from
Porto Rico, where he was detailed to
make a report on the condition of the
people as observed by him on a march
with soldiers across tho Island. That
report was made to the adjutant gen
eral. Department of Porto Illco, Sin
Juan. A copy of the report was given
out to night by Dr. Williams:
"At I.os Mariost" the report says,
"we began to see the-vanguard of mis
ery. In that small squalid town there
is no medical officer. Many were sick.
A Mr. Toncuand, tho American school
teacher there, told me that many of
the people, not only of the surround
ing country but of the town, were In
great distress. I asked him the causo
of so much sickness and so many
deaths. He ansewered without hesi
tation: 'For want of food."' " "
The report continues: "At Adjunir.s
the conditions wero sppaling; men,
women and children, swollen, bloated
diseased and emaciated, whose pinched
and haggard features appeared weight
ed with the sorrow of years. When I
asked the city physician ot Adjuntas
the cause ot such a large death rate
fifty-two deaths and four births the
week Immediately preceding our visit
there he replied: 'The death rate Is
about the same every week. The prime
cause, chronic starvation.'"
Dr. Williams in this report declares
that with fourteen patients In the bos
pltal at this place and three nurses the
municipal authorities allow the stew
ard to draw only a dollar a day In
municipal stamps for the subsistence
and care of the patients, and with thai
the steward can realize only GO cents
with his stamps and with that amount
dally he has to supply the scanty hos

Saved From Fire
Wm. Vlda, who has Joined the
Mounted Patrol, made a record for
watchfulness while- on his beat last
night that undoubtedly saved thou
sands of dollars and perhaps a number
of lives. He Is only sorry that he did
not have a revolver In his hands at thu
time of the occurrence for then he
would have been able to cap the climax
to the whoel thing. Vlda saved tho
house of F. W. Macfartane on the
Plains from being set afire by an In
cendiary whose Identity Is not known.
The officer told a Bulletin reporter the
following story of the occurence today:
"I was on the Punahou beat and
had Just entered the lane that leads
from Berctanla Into the Widemann
premises In order to gain a better sur
vey of the street In case anyone should
come along with a bicycle or olher ve
hicle without a light This was about
10:15 o'clock. I heard a couple of
horses galloping about In the yard of
F. W. Macfarlane and naturally turn
ed my head In that direction. As I did
so, I noticed someone at the side of the
house near the steps strike a match.
At the same time, I did not know any
one was staying In the. house and so t
cried out: 'Who's there?" There was no
answer and Immediately I saw a figure
dressed in black, running for the back
hedge. I knew something was wrong
and then started after the fellow but
my heavy boots prevented me from
running at any decent speed. I cut
across lots and made for the place
where I thought the fellpw must cront
but he had disappeared. I had no gun
and so could not make the fellow halt,
although I did cry out for htm to do so.
"When I went back to examine the
place w here I had first seen the man, I
found that the steps and other places
near by had been saturated with kero
sene oil. In one corner was a great
bunch of dried grass. This was also
saturated with oil. An empty bottle
whlih had contained keroseno was 1
few feet away from the steps. I went
to Jack Campbell's and found that Mr.
Lewis and family were living in tho
house. Together, we awakened tho
family and found that the attempt at
Incendiarism had been made Just out
side of Mr. Lewis's door. Naturally
the people of the house were very
much frightened. Mr. Lewis 'was at a
loss to account for the actt. Ho knew
of no one who codld'posslbly have been
so much Incensed at him as to attempt
the dastardly act. It Is of course pos
sible that the Incendiary got into the
wrong place. However, he meant
For Protection of
The Finny Creatures
On account ot the funeral of th
late David Center yesterday afternoon,
a large number of the men who hud
Intended to be present at the meeting
In the Chamber of Commerce to con
sider ways and means for tho protec
tion of fish In the waters about the
Islands were unable to attend bo there
were but few at the meeting. However,
certain things were done which will
undoubtedly lead to the formation of a
regular organization for that purpose.
H. B. Cooper was made temporary
chairman and Walter G. Smith, tem
porary secretary. On taking the chair,
Mr, Cooper -stated the object of tho
meeting as being for the purpose ot
forming an( (Organization tp correct
Ashing abusesIn Hawaiian waters and
to suggest legislation for the promo
tion of fisheries In various ways. Al
lan Herbert, who was also at the meet
ing, exhibited a net used by the Chi
nese and Japanese In fishing. He stat
ed that the meshes wero 'such that
hardly a living thing In the sea could
escape when once entrappe'd. Mr. Her
bert suggested that a law for the pro
tection of mullet and awa at this sea
son ot the year would be an excellent
Among others who spoke was C. A.
Brown of the II Estate. He suggested
legislation along the lines of prohibit
ing the use of the small mesh nets and
the protection of fish during their
spawning periods. The chair was giv
en the power to appoint a committee
ot twelve to draft bllbi tpMe pre
sented to the Legislature and) on mo
tion of Governor Dole, the cablr was
authorized to call another meeting as
soou as the committee should be ready
The house was fairly well filled last
night to see the first night of the last
bill. The new farce "Euchered" Is a
clever Idea and well carried out by tho
company. Adams who has perhapj
been the most successful character
-singer yet brought 'to Honolulu, despite
his ten weeks' engagement and semi
weekly songs, found some new ones
last night. Honolulu will be sorry to
lose Adams. Aside from his personal
ity, his entire repertorle has been ex
cellent, over a dozen of his songs being
big bits, while his costuming, his rapid
changes and his dramtlc portrayal of
his songs haB made him a popular fa
vorlto and gained hlm'i-ecognftlon as
a first class artist.
Little Claire made a big Impression
last night. Kurkamp and Miss Ray-
mond have strong turns. Conlon and
Ryder are always legitimately laugh
able and Jeanette and her cockatoos
ore an Interesting novelty. Tonight Is
the last but one of vaudlevllle.
