Judge Wilcox's throne of grace l

the prompt conclusion that the chnp

government Is expensive at rr. price.
Not one In a hundred of tho passen

At the present rate of progress the

Editor Evening llulletln That It Is
a disgrace In this twentieth century
to be a city which confesses to the pro
vulenco of such diseases as leprosy,'

that open trenches In the middle of the
roadway In Paris served for drainage
naked and shnmtlcss; that gratotarjls
were unfenced In tho midst of humble
homes; and that the constant disease
and frequent epidemics which cum
from nil this foulness were fathered
on n convelcnt ProUdoncc. However,
this wns the consolation of the Illiter
ate and Imbecile, for It remained for
tho shining lights of science to show
that tho bubonic plaguo came from
maleficent comets their tails toward
tho Orient. It was not till the close of
the sixteenth century that tha common

That the city of Honolulu nt the
opening of the twentieth century fur
nishes londltlons decades behind the
rest of the civilized world, may prop
erly furnish food for thought to tliow
organs nnd officials who pipe the tune
of the burden of Inci eased taxation to
the small balder as an Insurmountable
obstacle to municipal renovation. And
In the next b-eath admit that three
fourths of nil the property In Honolulu
Is held by a few Intelligent white peo
ple. The reproach for this condition, ills
graceful and humiliating as It Is. rests
then with the Intelligent remnant who
prefer to Uc a.nong numerous open
graveyards crowded past belief, than to
pay fur their removal.
In the fare of all the foulness and
chaos nttendaut upon the Inertia of
the Heard of Ilcilth and Hoard of Pub
lie Works during recent years, there
arc no signs of nn earnest, systematic.
far-seeing effort on the part of the
Territorial Government to Inaugurate
n system of better days. The mibter-
fugo of expense Is for the man who
doesn't reckon the cost of epidemics.
If the sums expended for those costly
vhltatlons (ono million dollars for the
bubonic plague nnd a large amount fir
the cholera) had been Invested In
municipal renovations, tho taxpayers
would now hnvc something to show for
their money besides n plague stricken
And yet they say nn effrctlvo municipal-
