IT IS HE
OF HIS BUSINESS
This Is How Dr. Cofer
Regards the Appeal
CLEANSING OF 1UYANA
NOT A CASE IN POINT
Federal Authorities May Intervene in
Epidemics But Not In Town Clean
Dr. I., n Cofer. In charge of tho
United States Marino Hospital Ser
lce at this port, was seen by a Bulle
tin reporter this morning regarding
lae action of tho Honolulu Merchants
Association In passing a resolution
conveying an appeal for Federal as
Distance to secure tho thorough sani
tation of Honolulu. The Federal quar
antine offlcor said:
"1 really do not think that I havo
anything to say on the subject, sim
ply becauBo It Is none of my business.
Dr. Cofer was asked If thero was a
precedent In tho cleansing of Havana
for the requested Intervention of th
Federal authorities In Honolulu.
His reply was that Cuba was under
military rulo ot the unucd States when
Havana was cleansed. It was by mill
tary order and tho action had no rela
tion to tho case of Honolulu, a part
of the Territory ot Hawaii as It Is.
Dr. Cofor was next asked If there
were any record of an epidemic In
tho States or Territories, where tho
Federal authorities Interfered on bo
lialf of the public health.
The Federal authorities havo Inter
vened In the case of yellow fever epi
demics, but never to tho extent of
cleaning up towns. Yes; they might
hnvo advised local authorities regard
ing the Importance of sanitation."

combination, for Instance, as an elec
tric light wire In contact with a guy
line nnd grounding through the me
dium ot nn Iron root,
Mr Hasson, who was met at King
and Alakea streets, pointed to an In
describable maze of all sorts ot wires
1 on tho corner occupied by the Call
, lornla Krult Market, saying he had
asked the new manager of the Mutual
Telephone Company how he could ex
pect to perfect his service with such
messes as that Indicated.
Tho Inspector spoke also of the
thoughtless arrangement of wires serv
ing such a large block as the Camp
bell, with scores of Individual wires
leading Into the offices of subscribers.
A common-sense Idea ot treating such
n block would be to lead a cable along
tho rear, from which tho subscribers
I could bo served with individual wires
, out of sight ot the Btrcet. System ot
this kind would go far toward obviat
ing both danger and loss In the caso
of fire, as there would bo an absence
of wires In front to Impede the fire
men and endanger their lives from
deadly currents, or to be cut nnd brok
en nwny by them to tho great damage
of the different electric systems.
