After all tho talk by the Republi
can and Homo Utile parties about put
ting up a candidate In tbo Fourth Dls
trlc to run for the scat in tho Legis
lature left vacant by the death of Ar
chibald aitflllan, tho Democrats have
taken the lead and have been the first
to ptu a man In the field. This was
done ntn meeting held in the old head
quarters of the party In Kaahumanu
street last night.
Tho meeting was tho result of a call
sent out by Chairman Johnson of the
Fourth District Committee of tho
Democratic. party. Just rs soon as
Chairman McCarthy had taken his
scat and called tho meeting to order,
James Sims arose and protested that
It was not yet time to act. The action
of the other parties should be awaited.
L. D. Tlmmons was elected secretary
and then the mutter of not taking ac
tion until later was again threshed out.
Fred Tcrrlll was of the opinion that
the Democratic party should be the
first in the fight. He was sure that
the other two parties would put up
candidates and It would not do for tho
Democrats to be behind time, tin
thereupon nominated Chas. T. Wilder
tor tlio place, this nomination was
greeted with rounds of applause,
Col. McCarthy Bald that It took great
devotion to party interests to under
take such a task as to run In a Uepub
lican stronghold when there would bo
but little to gain should the scat be
won. However, the party must bo held
together and this was tho way to do
It, by putting a man In the field and
making a fight, even though the
chances were against him .
Tho nomination was made unanl
mous. Committeeman Johnson . sata
that there was a little Informality to
be, gono through with. There was
money needed to pay tho expenses o(
filing the papers of the candidate. This
work was placed In the hands of I.. D.

To Reduce the Army
In the Philippines
Washington, Feb. 20. Secretary
Hoot, In conformity with assurances
recently inndo to various committees
of Congress, has arranged for a grad
ual reduction of tho military force in
tho Philippines, to nbout 32,000 men.
Orders have been sent to Qcneral
Chaffee, commanding tho division of
tho Philippine, to arrango to send
homo all tho regiments under Mb com'
mand that wcro sent to the Islands In
Manila, Jan. 29. The following fitD
account of the experiences of tho ma
rines who made the recent expedition
In Samar under Major Waller, receiv
ed from a private letter, exceeds in Its
horror and pltlfulness anything which
has yet been reported from that dark
and bloody island. The main facts ot
the affair havo been published, but
theso details are new.
The battalion of the Marine Corps
stationed at Ilascy, on tha southern
part of tho Island of Samar, oppoalt
Tacloban, Leytc, has suffered a serious
disaster, losing a number of men, rillci
A few days after Christmas Major
Waller, in command of tho marines,
left Ilascy for a scouting expedition
from l.aoang, taking a few days' ra
tions. After beating up one of tho
small rivers It was decided to push
back to Bascy overland. The party
pushed out Into the mountains wilt
several native guides, who proved
trustworthy. It seems that the trail
was lost, and the party, after a few
ikiys, was out of rations, with little 01
nothing available for tho sustenance of
the troops in the wild and barren coun
try In which they found themselves.
To add to their distress, there was a
terrible storm sweeping over tlio Isl
and of Samar. A number of the men
wcro too badly done up to mnko any
attempt to push on without food, and
In tho dilemma tho best place that
could be found was chosen for n tem
porary camp, while tho Major with a
part of his command struck out again,
manfully determined to reach Ilascy
and secure reinforcements at any cost.
After the most severe hardships he ar
rived In Basoy and led a relief expedi
tion to the assistance of the starving
troops, who had In tho meantime, after
considerable delay, for the relief was
delayed longer than they expected, de
cided to return over the trail that they
knew. Finally part of them got to
camp, but in a horrible condition. Nine
men are sick In the hospital at Taclo
ban, ten aro entirely unaccounted for,
as they wcro compelled to drop out ot
the column in the wilds of the Jungl
and nothing Is known of their fate
whether they have died of starvation
or fallen Into the hands of the boleros.
All who passed through the ordeal will
bo unfitted for duty for weeks to come.

his bloodthirsty assailant, but was so
exhausted by lack of food and well
nigh worn out that thcro was not
strength enough In his trigger finger to
discharge tho revolver. Observing
this, the Bavago guide -wrenched the
revolver from his band and in turn
tried to shoot tho lieutenant with his
own firearm. Tho dovll was Ignorant
of the mechanism ot the revolver, and
after finding that ho could not dis
charge It, disappeared In the forest
with the revolver.
Twenty-nlno rifles aro lost, with
more than that many cartridge belts
and at least three thousand rounds of
ammunition. Under the stress ot tho
trail, exhausted from lack ot food, the
men cast aside first one thing and
then another. In the final emergency
discarding tho cartridge belts that
were growing heavier and heavier as
the days advanced and the pangs of
hunger Increased. They assert that
their rifles were lost In crossing tho
streams swollen Into swift rushing tor
rents by the rains. It is feared that the
treacherous guides noted where the
rifles were dropped and that many or
them arc now In the hands of tho ene
my. Tho principal Insurrccto leader
In that section ot tho Island Is Captain
Sugcnlo Deza, who was tho leader of
the Ilalanglga massacre. Tho thirty
rifles or so that ho was reported to
have may have been considerably aug
mented by this last fiasco.
What the object of the expedition
was that has resulted so disastrously
Is unknown. It Is supposed hero that

conditions prevail In Samar; that de
tachments can hardly stir outsldo ot
the garrisoned towns without peril of
being ambushed and wiped out entire
ly. The regiments In Samar aro so de
pleted by their short-tlmo men having
been sent homo that they barely pre
sent a skeleton formation, Tho Ninth
Infantry has only 300 men, some com
panies being reduced to a ecoro. Tho
other regiments aro reduced nearly as
much. According to tho statements
ot people coming from the southern
waters tho conditions prevailing nra
sufllclent to cause the gravest appre
hension. General Smith, when seen the other
day by an otllcer. who has Just returned
from Samar, said that tho commands
would send men out for two or three
days and If they wero fortunate
enough to get back they Invariably had
to be sent to the hospital.
There also seeniB to be some trouble
among the officers. When General
Smith Issued his orders, some of them
were to the effect that natives found
outside ot tho towns wero to bo shot.

NO PLAGUE IN MANILA
Manila, Jan. 29. Up to dato thero
baB not been ono caso ot plaguo In
tho city of Manila. Not since tho
American occupation has the bulletin
hoard of tho Hoard of Health been so
clear of plaguo returns nt this aeasou
of tho year as it is today.
As going to show, in somo slight de
gree, tho work of tho board, It may bo
mentioned thnt In tho month ot De
cember 2500 houses wero thoroughly
cleaned and disinfected and 10,000
cartloads of filth taken from them and
dumped In tho waters of tho bay.
On tho Hancock there arrived foi
tho Health Department 2000 rat traps
of various patterns and patents, and
theso havo nearly all been distributed
nbout tho city, tho rat-catching having
risen to COO a day, all of which are
oxamlned In tho laboratory for any
signs ot the plague. Ily tho Hancock,

of sulphur for burning In Infected ot

mences tho tour of vaccination ot tho
Chinos under tho supervision o tno
Hock Kl Con Club, and In all It Is ex
pected that somo 10.000 vaccinations
will tnko place In the next week.
And the worm turned nt last. At
yesterday's meeting of the Uoard of
Health, Dr. Cooper protested against
the consumption of tlmo every week
over the everlasting palal supply ques
tion. After this It Is likely a commit
tee will attend to tho delinquencies ot
contractors both furnishing and trans
portation. Dr. II. C. Sloggctt, president; Dr. C
11. Cooper, Dr. W. M. Jloorc. E. A.
Mott-Smlth, Attorney Oencral K. P.
Dole nnd Fred. C. Smith constituted
the meeting, and In attendance wero
Dr. J. S. U. Pratt, C. Charlock and C.
II. Iteynolds, respectively the execu
tle otllcer, the secretary nnd the su
perintendent ot the Molokni Settlement.
A letter from Wllder's Steamship
Company was received, giving a report
on the landing of n lot of cattle at
Kalaupapa. Owing to the weather, tbo
schooner Ka Mot had tu bring eight
head on to Honolulu.
Mr. Iteynolds reported that he had
made arrangements for disposing ot
tho cattle brought here, and his action
With reference to r.ic shipment of
palal, Mr. Iteynolds told of his writing
directions to Judgo Knlua, tho con
contractor, which the latter had nut
observed. In consequence thero was a
quantity of the foodstuff In Honolulu
liable to spoiling, A second shipment
without order had been made. Owing
to the detention of steamers by the
storm, Mr. Iteynolds could not get ad
vices to the Settlement regarding tha
supply. He did not think the stuff
hero now could be disposed of profit
ably. Dr. Cooper thought It would be well
to have a palal committee, instead ol
having the time of every meeting tak
en up with this everlasting palal ques
tion. "Wo have a palal committee," the
president said, "Mr. Smith being tha
Dr. Cooper moved that If the palal
sent without order cannot bo disposed
of, the Hoard will not be responsible
for Its value. Carried.

intendent of Public Works, was re
ceived with regard to tho disposal ot

the garbage dump at Sheridan street

cautions there might not bo dangei

Dr. Pratt said the garbage was be

sanitary improvement nt tho place. Ho

Dr. Sloggctt did not deem It neces
sary to tako up time with the matter,
since thero was such evidence ot im
provement. Neither, while not desir
ing to have any whitewashing of com
plaints thnt had been Just, did ho con
sider It necessary to bring up the next
order of business 'Hcport of the com
mittee on washhousc8 at Iwllcl."
Two letters were read from the sani
tary Inspector nt Illlo. In one In
structions were asked for regarding
the granting of building permltB. This
tho Hoard decided to be altogether out
of Its province. The other related to
the flshmarket and was referred back
to the writer, with Instructions that a
petition of residents on the subject
would bo considered.
Dr. W. F. McConkey wroto asking
for leave of absence for a month, re
commending thnt Dr. C. A. Peterson be
appointed as his substitute tor the dis
trict of Makawao. Granted.
Amusement was caused by tho read
ing of a letter addressed to the "Hon.
Mayor of Honolulu," by a self-styled
"professor" of palmistry, psychology
nnd astrology, wanting to know about
the conditions for starting a school of
