HONOLULU'S HEALTH AND ITS MEN.
This talk of Federal control or outside assistance in hand
linn the Honolulu health situation is the cry of the incompe
tent or the lazy or both.
The assinity of it!
Here is a community that has stamped out plague any
number of times; that has swung the "irresponsible elector
ate" to do its bidding every time established industry has
been threatened; that has mastered the arts of industry
more successfully than any other combination of men on
earth; that has kept the Territory on a gold basis when ev
ery other financial center of the country was using fiat
money; this community with so many successes to its credit,
successes. that guarantee the almighty dollar, this commun
ity with so many brilliant men of which it boasts when it is
on parade, this community laying down and saying "We
can't" when it comes to handling an outbreak of cholera.
Thank God that the Federal control whine is not from the
majority, but from the same old gang that has epitomized
selfishness and greed and traded on incompetence ever since
the history of the Territory has been written. The Selfish
feed on the weaknesses of the Incompetent.
What shall be done in the present emergency?
What has always been done in every emergency. Get in
and do the work that is at hand. Fight cholera with the
same determination displayed in fighting the enemies of Eu
ropean immigration for instance, and be as ready to spend
money as freely to get results.
One of the troubles with the local situation is that a cer
tain element is willing to spend money like water for what
seems to them to serve their selfish ends; then when it comes
to appropriating as liberally as is needed to do the necessary
public work of a community that is growing and that must
meet big problems, this clement raises its hands to high
heaven and cries out with a loud voice "To arms, to arms,
they are raising taxation!"
When there is something wrong and the righting of it
means the expenditure of large sums of money, this same
element cries out with equal pious alarm, "Great God this is
too much. Let the Federal government fix it!"
A little more of this and the Federal government will "fix
it." And unless the Bulletin is very much misguided in
its judgment the first ones to be "fixed" are the gentlemen
who now curse the local government the loudest and reap
the largest cash returns from its benefits.
This seems like rather strong language but it is absolute
facts. What is there to do?
Simply do the work that is clearly before the people of this
town cooperate, drive, assist and act like whole-souled
Get to work with the Sanitary Commission in shaping
plans for the future. Really start work; don't sit around and
wisely declaim on what ought to be done.
For the immediate present, put the whole town under in
spection. If the men paid to do this work can't be trusted,
let the public know who they are, and call for volunteers.
vuo ai me proniem in an intelligent, vigorous, sensible way.
Ignorant people hiding cases of serious sickness is no new
thing. It is a peculiarity of ignorance the world over. This
being so, the ones most seriously to be criticised are those
who fail to act promptly in coping with a situation that is
neither new nor impossible of quick solution.
But of all things, don't stand around like dumb, sodden,
driven brutes or lolly-pop theorizers and whine "This is too
mud. Take this nasty mess of our hands."
Who shall direct the work?
The Territoriaf Board of Health, of course, with everv
local health department and health officer cooperatinci not
. haggling over a division of authority.
