A QUESTION TO SOLVE NOW.
One sanitation question should be
settled now, and that Is, what, method
to use in lllllng low-lying lands that
are to be reclaimed by the use of
Kxperts In Honolulu, men whose
business it Is to handle dredging and
lllllng contracts, differ widely In their
views. Two of those varying views
have been expressed to the llulle
1 1 n as follows:
"Hydraulic tilling of low lands, that
is, the pumping of dredged material
upon the lauds or the washing down
of soil from the hills should not be al
lowed," stated one contractor, whose
experience here extends over more
than n score of years.
"Hydraulic filling lcnes mud, deep
mud, for the laud takes months to dry
our thoroughly unci alt this time it Is
a disease menace. We have found by
experience that this work is u breed-
at. typhoid. The only way Is to
handle- the earth bo that It is prac
tlcally dry when it arrives at the spot
where the 1111 Is to be made. To do
this either a bucket dredge or a clam
shell dredge should be used, the earth
sent on curs or drays to the place
where the 111 1 Is to be made, and by
the time It gets there It Is dry and
can be dumped In at once."
Another contractor takes an oppo
site view. "The earth will dry out
quickly, even If pumped upon the
land through u pipe-line," ho says.
"Klther way Is effective."
Honolulu has a large amount of llll
lng ahead. Within u few weeks some
of this work should be started on a
large Bcale. In view of the widely-
different opinions. It requires no ar
gument to demonstrate that this ques
tion ought to bo settled now, and set
tled In the right way, bo that when
tho work Is begun, It can be begun
and carried forward on the right lines.
THE MEANING OF A HOLY
WAR IN TRIPOLI.
The cabled news that tho "hinter

neighboring African countries Is to
be united In u "Holy War" against the
Italian invaders is one of the most
Important developments In the entire
story of thu wur.

little significance. Here the Moslem
