CASES AT PRESENT TIME
Vice-President Dimond Disclaims
Any Idea of the Merchants' Asso
ciation t6 Create a
Dr. H. C. Sloggctt, president of the
Uoaril of Health, was asked how he
regarded the action of the Honolulu
Merchants' Association In Inaugurat
ing an appeal for Federal asblstance
to place Honolulu In a sanitary tondl.
I am In thorough sympathy with
the merchants In their oKorts to
clean the town. The Board of Health
Is strapped for funds to carry out iho
sanitary measures that are necessary.
If the Federal authorities could bo
Induced to cleanso tho town It wnuld
be n great blessing.
"The Doard of Health, I am nivc, has
made seventy-five cents do the work of
a dollar right along. Wo have got the
slaughter houses on tho move. A bo
ginning has been maed at Knkaako.
Now we aro driving all tho nogpens
out of the town limits. Still you know
we aro up against a fearful condition
of things In Honolulu, with filthy gar
ters so Inviting to epidemics."
"How many cases of plague have
you on your hands now?" tho reporter
There aro nono whatever, lei tho
port of Honolulu Is always exposed to
Infection from being the first calling
port of-Bteamers from the Orient.
There would be little danger of an
epidemic, however. If tho city was kept
In n sanitary condition.
No. I do not consider tho bubonio
plague half as dangerous as, would be
a visitation of typhoid fever, or diph
theria or measles. Only tho very
name of It carries dread from knowl
edge of Its ravages where It has gain
ed headway. Sporadic plague cases aro
not such a serious matter, but there
Is always danger of Its becoming epi
demic when It enters Hn Oriental quar
ter. "It may be very doubtful If Uncle
Sam will do anything for the sanita
tion of Honolulu, as this is not a con
nueied country like Cuba.
"Still, even with our limited means.
I am confident that before the next
session of the Legislature tho Hoard
of Health will have the town cleaner
than It ocr was before.
"I shall regard with favor any meas
ures that the citizens ma take for
helping out the Hoard. U would be a
great thing If Federal assistance were
obtained for filling In tho low places of
the town. Wo have no money for
large works of that kind, which aro ab
solutely necessary for placing the town
In good sanitary condition.
"The merchants are for lis, not
against us, and we welcome their as
sistance." Dr. W. M. Moore, a member of the
Hoard of Health, came Into Dr. Slog
gctfs ofllco the latter part of tho In
terview and fully endorsed the senti
ments of tho president,
W. W. Dimond, vies president of the
Honolulu Merchants' Association, who
presided at the meeting yesterday, tes
tified to the unanimity of sentiment
that led up to the action "taken.
"No, I -do not think that the effect
of the resolution should be the creat
ing of a scare," Mr. Dimond said.
"In fact, such nn eventuality was
discussed and tho general opinion was
that the ,actlon was solely Intended us
a precautionary measurn called for by
the peculiar position of this port Id.

Tho tug Fearless met with nn acci
dent last evening between 5 and l
o'clock while employed In supplying
water to tho British cruiser I'hncton,
which Is now lying In tho stream.
Captain Urokaw of tho Fearless luil
requested the Englishman to remove
tho long boom to which the boats am
attached and to swing In his dav.t.
as It was a very difficult ma' tor to ma
neuver tho tug close up .o tho war
ship on account of the turrets. In
addition to this, the boom and davits
made tho task almost impossible
The man-of-war would not remove
tho obstacles, and Captain IlroUaw
skilfully took bis boat up until It was
within a few Inches of the davits. All
went well until the Fearless backed
up. Just then, a swell heeled tho
boat over nnd ono of the davits caught
In tho forestay. Tho foremast pulled
by the stny was bent far forwards but
even then the stout stick would not
break. As It was put In such shape,
however, that it was rendered useless,
It was subsequently sawed off.
Captain Itrokaw will now havo tho
mainmast taken out In order to havo
ns few obstacles on his boat as pos
sible. A new foremast will bo put In
as It is necessary to havo ono mast

105T PORT 8T.
Batches Being Sent
Maui and Hawaii
THERE WILL BE NONE
TO SEND ON NEXT BOAT
Poliw Keeping an Eye On Every
Man, Woman and Child Who
Arrives in City
There has been but Utile complaint
of lato nbout the Porto Itlcajii and the
credit for this must be git en the po
lice department which has been seeing
to It that all ot tho uneniplo)ed people
of this nationality are snipped out of
the city as soon after their arrival here
ns possible. This has been going on
tver since the time a number of weeks
ago when the crowd of Porto Hlcans
railed at the headquarters nf the As
sociated Charities on Alakea street
and asked for something to eat. It
will be remembered that at that time
Sheriff Drown locked up the whole
gang ot men and their cases came up
In tho Police Court the next day ami
the day after.
Tho majority of the Torto Illrani
were discharged but some went oer to
Jail. Somo of the former had places
of business nnd these were not bother
ed. However, those whn had nothing
to do together with others In the lt
who were unemployed were gathered
together by Detective Kaapa and Ma
cauluy, the Porto Ktcan Interpieter,
and sent to Maul nnd Hawaii.
Slnco that time, this recruiting hai
been going on quietly and eery Tues
day, men, women and children have
been sent away to plantations on Ha
waii and Maul. Thus the city bai
been rid of an undesirable clement and
the plantations nt Hawaii and Maul
that have been clamorhig for Porto III
can labor, havo been satisfied.
The last batch of these laborers was
gathered together on Monday last and
sent to tho two Islands mentioned on
tho Klnau of Tuesday. IX appears that
now there are no more unemployed
Porto Hlcans In the city so that when
i.ext Tuesday arrives tliero will bn
none to dispatch to the plantations ot
Hawaii nnd Maul as has been done
during two months last past.
There Is, of course, always a possi
bility ot more Porto lltcnns arriving
from the plantations but It Is learned
that nearly all tho discontented ones
have been weeded out from the ranks
of the laborers on the plantations down
the road and that there will be cry
few more leaving now.
Porto nicans who have come from
the plantations down the road havn
evidently thought that they would be
allowed to remain In the city but In
this they have been mistaken. Every
single one-man, woman or child
who arrives in tho city, Is watched
closely, an dlt no work Is being done
by them, they nro gathered together
and sent away to tho other islands.
It has perhaps been noticed that
since tho police department Inaugu
rated this new means of getting rid
nt the unemployed Porto HkansJn th
city, there has bean a diminution of
petty thieving so that the claim that
these people were the ones doing most
of the Jobs of the kind seems to have
been woll founded.
Kenrly all the vessels In port are
showing a goodly display of colors to
day In honor of Washington's birth
day. The Drltlsh cruiser Phaeton
makes a splendid display and the navy
collier Alexander as well as several
vessels of the merchant fleet are decor
ated from stem to stern.
