At the meeting of the Hoard of

from Dr. Pratt, the executive orlU-cr,
"Honolulu, Oct. 29, 1001.
"To the President and Members of the
Doard of Health.
"Oentlemen: Thcro Is a matter
which I desire to bring to your atten
tion with the hope thatf some action
can be taken which will be of benefit
to this country. It seems to me to bo
n fitting time to start In on n rat kilt
"No plague is at present In Hono
lulu, or any part of tho Territory ns
far as Is known, but we have reports
of cases by every steamer from Hong
kong, occasionally from San Francisco
nnd now by last steamer we learn It,
Is In llrlsbane,
"Just so long as there nre rapes In
theso places we are opeu to the danger
of having It get ashore from one of
these ports. The I'nlted States Ma

aie woiklng In perfect accord is doing
all in their power to prevent it get
ting ashore from csseis. but thcro N
always u chance that rats, and Infected
ones at that, may manage to get
ashore and so Infect others.
"The plague Is spread principally
through the agency of rats Is a fact
recognized by- all countries wheru
plague has existed, and It Is only a
few months ago that Japan having a
few cases of plague started In on u
general rat crusade and thousand
were exterminated. It is not my do-

Washington. Oct. 1$, (Special).
There ure several prominent residents
of Hawaii in this city Interested,
among other matters, to ascertain tho
President's attitude toward that far
away possession. To Mr. Humid M.
Sewall, national committeeman frdTu
Hawaii, and formerly Minister to
those Islands, and to Col. Samuel Par
ker, .who ran ns Kepubllcan delegate
for Congress, Mr. Itooscvclt expressed
himself yesterday In most friendly
terms. He declared his wish that the
Hnwnllans be encouraged to the utmost
to become enlightened American citi
zens In full harmony with the people
of the States.
Iloth Col. Parker nnd Mr. Sewall had
pleasant meeting personally with the
President. Col. Parker has himself
seen a great deal of cowboy life, being
an extensive ranchman, and In that
particular lie nnd tho President were
able to swap interesting reminiscences.
Mr. bewail was on nn equally favorable
rooting, for he was a student at Har

Koosetelt. The President graduated

New York, Oct. 23. J. Plcrpont Mor
gan has bought the celebrated "Holy '
Kamlly," by Raphael, called the Col

letter from n noted Paris connlsseur ro
reived In this city. The long lost
painting madj a great iensatlon In
Paris this year when It appeared
nrooug tb old masters In M. Bedel-
meyers gallery. It Is said the "Holy
Family" Is finer than anything In tho
Louvre or National Gallery by tho
same painter. It Is stated on tellable
Information that Mr. Morgans III not
bring the picture to this 'country for
some time, whatever disposition be

I thoroughly believe that the sooner
the pcople'of this community tnkc a

selves tp the fact that this being n sea
port city we arc always open to the
danger of contagious nnd Infectious
diseases' Just so much quicker will tho
commeiciat nnd shipping Interests be
best conseived. It is not only the fact
that If plague should again appear we
would be likely to havo some deaths,
but tho fact that If It does come the
commercial nnd shipping Interests of
the community nre nt once affected nnd
"The old saying, 'an ounce of preven
tion Is north a found of cure.' was
never trurcr than In this Instance.
"In other words It Is better to start
taking piccnutlong before It docs ap
pear, with the coming on of the rainy
season wo nio very likely to have
sporadic cases of plague and If before
this time comes we can diminish the
number of rain or exterminate them
by the concerted action of the wholi
community then the danger of 1(3
spreading will be greatly diminished.
"I would respectfully request that a
committee of three be appointed to
take up this matter nnd outline it plan
of action nnd thnt tho public, ns 1
whole, through the press, be lequesteil
to give the Hoard their support In thU
matter as soon ns the committee ha.
re.iched n decision.
"J. S. II. PRATT.
Attorney General Dole suggested
that the newspapers should be asked
to aid In the movement.
T)r. Pratt thought the shipping In
terests ought to assist In the work of
rat extermination. The steamship
companies had a great deal at stake In
tho matter, as quarantine meant an
immense loss to them.
Dr. Cooper suggested that the co
operation of the Putted States health
authorities should be Invited.
President Slogged thought the
Chamber of Commerce ought to assist
In the campaign.
Attorney (leneral Dolo considered
that Kahulul was nearly ns important
as Honolulu to be guarded against the.
entrance of pestllcnco.
Dr. Cooper advised thai the govern
ment physicians, especially nt sen
ports, should be Instructed to aid thn
Hoard In the matter.
All of these recommendations were
formally ndopted by vote, together
with the main propositions of th?
Dr. Cooper and Dr. Pratt were ap
pointed from the Hoard to take the
required action, they to Invite the co
operation of l)r. Cofer, of the United
States Marine Hospital Service.
