The community houhl lie net
ilKht on the question of the wages
tild the employes of the sugar

iuiir for so ninny week on $1S a

.nonth Is Imleeil the Income of the

Those In a poult Ion to tipcat: with
authority on this subject shoulj ilo
furthermore the conmiunIO
should know whether the planters

ilenllng with the strike utid whether
or not there Is unv prostint of their
ileallns with the IIIkIi Woko agita
tors. Wo believe lltetc U not the
slightest iio.'pet't of dhlslon or con
ferring with agitators, tut It should
be so stated b the planters.
No good Interest Is sencd by a
continued sllenco that sooner or
later Is certain to be misinterpreted
as an Indication of weakness.
No one question that the plant
ers know their own business, but
under strike conditions their busi
ness Is community Interest and pub
lic opinion should bo given an op
portunity to gUc Intelligent tup
port. "If the sugnr Interests havo con
sidered and were about to luattgitr
. ato a readjustment of the wage sys
' tern of the Industry, this should ha
stated. The people should not bo
expected to tako c cry thing for
granted, principally because they
will not do it, nml to delay In putting
the situation plnlnly' before them
Is to Invite needless criticism.
This taklug up of vacant stores In
Honolulu Is significant of Honolulu's

Olflurd created this monthly to servo

INDICTMENT OF THE FLY.
To read tho scientist's statement of
tho case against the house fly Is to be
convinced of how perfectly familiarity
Only a few 5 ears ago peoplo fled
from yellow fever nml let tho mosquito
lio. Science stepped In and now the
mosquito Is killed and there Is little
to fi'ar fiom ellow fever.
Tor years and centuries our ancest
ors hae kept house with tho house-lly
as a ncccsBary nuisance. Only In to-
cent ears havo they learned of how
this pest has spread tleiilh and disast
er, 'and een now there Is no wide
spread conception of what tho house
Uy does toward distributing disease.
few years ago Dr. N. W. Cobb of
tho planters experiment station, treated
the members of tho unuerslty Club to
1111 Illustrated lecture on tho house fly
Tho facts he set forth made tho listen
ers' hair stand on end, but there lia.-i
been no movement to kill oft the house
fly, no house-fly campaign to icclpro
catu the mosquito campaign, though
thu hotiso fly Is far more deadly and
Meanwhile all kinds of money has
been expended to kill tho leaf hopper
and thus sae the field crops from
Not a dollar to find the common

human lives that annual!) succumb to
typhoid finer tubeiculiiiU mid the
plagues mure feared but less In ovl-
deuce In the mortality tallies of "civ
lllzed ' communities.
Tho teirlblo record or death that fol
lows In the waku of the house-fly Is
stated and commented 011 In an art
icle read by K. P. Kelt of Albany, N,
Y., at tho twenty-first annual meeting
of tho American Association of Eco
nomic nulomnloglsts. Mr. Kelt says
that If tho Spanish-American war
proved nothing else Is called attention
In a most foiclble manner to thrrpart
Hies play' In tho dissemination of ty
phoid bacilli. Ho quotes the olllclal re
port of a typhoid feer outbreak among
tho troops In I'orto Hlcu, which says
the outbreak "was clearly not duo to
water Infection but was transferred
from tho Infected stools of patients to
tho food by means of flies, thu condi
tions being specially favorablo for this
manner of dissemination,"
Dr. Allco Hamilton of Chicago, at n
loss to establish tho causo for an epi
demic In 1303, captured flies in un
drained prUleB of tho Infected section
and from tho walls of tho rooms occu
pied by typhoid patients. Her Investi
gations established tho fly as the cans'
or tlio epidemic. The bacilli of typhoid
fovor wero found by Kicker In tho de
jecta of hoiibo-flles 23 days after feed
ing, whllo Hammer records the pres
ence of this bacillus In flies during a
period of two weeks, Drs, Sedgwick
and WInslow writing In 1903 state
that "the three great means for tho
transmission of typhoid fever are ling
ers, food and flics, tho authors holding
tho last to bo tho most Imjiorlant."
Tho ovldonco against this Insect Is
summed up briefly by Dr. Felt as fol
lows: "Virulent typhoid bacilli havo
been found upon tho legs and within
tho bodies of this Insect, persisting In
me latter case for tweuty-tlircoluys.
A number of serious outbreaks havu
been observed by competent physi
cians when, Infection through n com
mon water or food supplj did not sat-
isiaciuiily explain the trouble."
"The olik'iicd shuwing that flics
plaj an Impoitaiit part In the dif
fusion of cholera is, according to Dr.'
Nitttul, absolutely convincing. Ho
cites expcilmcntH showing that cholera
gerns may bo found on flics In largo
numbers whllo they may occur In tho
dejecta within 17 hours after the feed
ing and ns late as four days. Infected
files hae been glen access to milk
and cholera cultures mnde therefrom"
Certain forms or diarrhea and enter
itis become general coincident with
the appearance of tho house-fly. "Nash,
In tho l.ondon Lancet, records no mor
tality from diarrhea among Infants at
South End during July nnd August,
1902, this Immunity being accompanied
by tho almost complcto absence of (he
house fly." "Dr. Jackson iccurds sev
eral epidemics of a malignant type of
dysentery radiating from a single point
nnd lsappoarlng entirely when proper
disinfection or closets was enforced."
"It Is well known that flics feed on
sputum. Experiments by Lord show
that tiles may Ingest tubercular spu
tum and excrcto tubercular bacilli, the
virulence of which may last fifteen
days. Ho considers tho danger of
human Infection fiom this source to
llo In the Ingestion of fly specks on
food and suggests that during tho fly
season great attention ho paid to the
screening ot rooms and hospital wards
containing patients with tuberculosis."
If this Is tho recommendation for tho
fly season of tho temperate zone what
must It be for a country where Iho llj'
season Is continuous unit tuberculosis
leads tho death roll.
"Parko admits tho possibilities of
flics distributing In addition to those
mentioned above, plague, trachoma,
septicemia, erysipelas and leprosy."
Uut files may bo kept In check by
other means than seeking for enemies
top rey upon them. Files live 011 fllth
in Honolulu at
Keep Btables clean and cdsspools cov
ered tip, lumot'o the easy ways for the
fly to become liifcctcd nnd the danger
Is entirely reinived. Uninfected, tho
fly, liku tho mosquito, is 11 nuisance
Under ordinary conditions, lmwccr,
this insect Is an enemy of tho human
rnco, and Is cutitled to be tientcd ns
such nt nil times.
