On the authority of the Washing
ton correspondent of the Now York
Trlbuno, the people of these Islands
are ugain reminded that President
Tuft thinks that Hawaii would he
much hotter off under n bureau of
insular affairs, nlong with l'orto
Illco, tho Philippines nnd other out
side appendages, than It Is with its
present Territorial form of govern
ment mid consequent connection with
tho Interior Department
This statement Is brought out In
a report that refers to President
Tnft's opposition to a Territorial
form of government for Alaska. He
wants the commission plan carried
Tho argument against tho Terri
torial scheme is that tho distances
arc ho magnlllcont' In Alaska that a
Territorial government with a Leg
islature and so forth would be im
practical. Hero wo see that Tatt is wedded
to tho commission form of govern
ment, that ho obviously believes
worked well In the Philippines and
which every free-born American, who
isn't nn office-holder or a beneficiary
of the official ring, hates.
The commission form of govern
ment comes as near to building up
a bureaucratic government ns any
thing ever brought Into tho schcino
of American government cun. It
destroys independent citizenship and
creates a community of truculent
office-seekers and 'official favorites.

BOARD OF HEALTH'S
Dissension on Open Air
Thero weio only nbotit thirty per
tons present yesterday afternoon nt
tho Hoard of Health's open meeting,
In the ballroom of the Capitol, to
discuss plans for tho suppression of
tho "whllo plague" In Honolulu and
neighboring Islands of tho Territory.
At tho Instanco of tho American
branch of the Ilcd Cross Society In
Huwnll, a conference of various or
ganizations and Indlvldunjs was held
on December IS, 190D. The meotlng
yesterday was to put before tho pub
lic tho plan of campaign content
plhtod for tho eradication -of tuber
culosis In the Territory of Hawaii.
Tho chair was occupied by K. A.
Mott-Smtth, president of tho Hoard
of Health. Several membors of tho
Hoard of Health wero present, in
cluding C. It. Hcmenwny, V. O'.
Smith, Dr. J. T. Wnyson, Dr. II.
McV. Macknll, Dr. Pratt.
After the chairman had reviewed
tho purposes for which tho meeting
l)it(l been called, he gavo a general
summary ns to the best methods of
coinbntlng tho spread of tuberculo
sis and how the $18,000 appropriated
at tho last Legislature should be ex
pended. "The Hoard of Health will
follow a plan of cooperation. Thero
aro many other lines along which
such cooperation can bo carried out,
and It ilu pa it for that reason Unit
this meeting is called." These, were
the opening words ,of E. A. Mott-
Continuing, Mr. Mott-SmlTh snld:
"This $18,000 will be kept under
charge of a competent man who will
expend It wisely'. It was suggested
that a division of work be consid
ered as between the Hoard of Health
and outside organizations, and that
a clear line, of division should not
be drnwn. The Hoard ot Health
should assist, and be assisted by, all
such organizations ns arc establish
ed to eradicate this dread dlscaso
from our midst.
This $18,000 nt the disposal of
the Hoard of Health Is not to' bo
compared with tho .vnluo of tho In
terest and material assistance that
Is being offered by various organiza
tions and private Individuals. Tho
Interest of Individuals is 'essential.
It Is Indeed pleasing nnd' gratifying'
to note the Interest now being taken
by tho planters of Hawaii, as it is
duo to their efforts In keeping tho
quarters of their labor force so clean
that tho Hoard of Health are ex
pending only some $1000 annually
In this direction.
"Thero must be no luck of enthu
siasm amongst the various organiza
tions tnklng active measures for
stamping out tuborculosls, Xo ex
pert Is at prt'sent needed from tho
mainland. '' Such In brief wero tho
remarks of U, A. Mott-Snilth.
Public' drinking cups wero con
demned; self-flushing cuspidors in
the streets and public buildings
throughout tho city1 wero recom
mended; the habit of expectorating
was severely censured, and tho ne
cessity for a puro milk' supply wan
From a table of statistics read by
K. A. Mott-Smlth It wns nsccrtnln
cd that 50 per' cent, of doaihs re
ported have up till now never bten'
reported nrf tuberculosis cases, 'al
though when nllvo these wero 'known
to havo beon suffering from that dis
ease. During tho six months end
ing December 31, 1009, fcoventy-Ilvo
deaths In Honolulu .resulted from tu
borculosls. During tho samo period.
llfty-thrco cases only were reported.
As M6tt-Smtth suggested, some ot
these may have been repeats. Tho
greatest proportion1 of deaths oc
curred between the ages of twenty
and thirty, From these seventy-five
deaths from tuberculosis, fwonty-
elght. wero females mid fqrty-seven
males. Of the llfty-three cases now
being treated, twenty-eight nro
under tho ugo of thirty and twenty
five over that age.

The chief points of objection aro that
a nlnfectcd class of people should tut
no account be brought Into it clean
community; that these cases should

for several reasons, which are as fol
lows: The proposed site Is In tho
ery center ot the church district, on
ono of the main car lines of this city.
It will not add to (ho.nttracttvcncss of
tho neighborhood to havo a consiiiiii

church, the German I.uthrrnn church

In this community a well estab

rear.on: Patients aro taken from the
slums und tilth of Honolulu to n beau

What boncflt they derive In tho open

Is nbsitrd to think of establishing it
