A controversy over the destruction of a few beloved bana
na plants when that destruction is recommended and ordered
by trained and capable sanitarians appeals to one just return
ing home from the mainland as absolutely ridiculous, as well
as most ill-advised.
Thus far the people of the mainland have not become
frightened at Honolulu's yellow fever scare. They know that
a skilled sanitarian has been ordered to the city of Honolulu
whether they have understood that we have good men here
or not. They believe that Honolulu people have average
sense and good judgment. But what can they think, if they
learn that in the face of a threatened crisis' Honolulu is in
dulging in a fight over banana plants the destruction of which
will materially aid in wiping out the mosquito the sole carrier
of yellow fever.
Ten banana plants may cost the city ten millions of dol
lars and many valuable lives.
If there are any health authorities in the world who know
their business, it is'the men on whom this city has now to
depend for direction and assistance. Their orders should be
followed without hesitation.
Honolulu's future depends on its being made a model town,
in every sense possible but certainly from a sanitary stand
point . This can be done. Cleaning up as directed by experts
at this time,' coupled with the expenditure of some thousands
of dollars is the only rational course to follow.
Honolulu has had a warning and apparently has got off
mighty luckily. Don't let the educational value be dissipated
by a silly and dangerous row over the sacrifice of a few pet
Support the health men. Begin now to do the work that
must be carried on to make this city a center of passenger
traffic and commerce that fears nothing because its bog
holes are filled and the mosquito breeding centers are wiped
off the map.
Some men look- so hard at a half dollar that it destroys
their ability to see a thousand beyond. Don't let the little ba
nana plant cloud the vision of well-meaning people who hope
Honolulu will be in a position to make the most of the oppor
tunities that must come its way through the development of
the Pacific, a development that will be more rapid than his
tory has ever recorded. Don't allow a mosquito or a banana
plant to ruin Honolulu, or make fools of its otherwise sensi
(Signed) W. R. FARRINGTON.
NO TIME TOJIESITATE.
United support of the health authorities in their efforts to
drive the fever-bearing mosquito out of Honolulu and main
tain the reputation of this port as being exceptionally heal
thy, is the only sane program for the citizens at this time. It
is the only program that will win in the end.
Honolulu's ability to grapple with the dangerous condi
tions here and overcome them is being watched all over the
country. Only a glance at the newspapers that arrived to
day is needed to prove this.
Honolulu's fight, through the Board of Health and the Cit
izens' Committee, is certain to be the subject of the keenest
scrutiny on the part of the Federal authorities at Washington.
Any hesitation in the midst of the battle will be take'n as an
evidence of weakness. And if the Territorial health officials
and the citizens' organization show weakness, one of Hono
lulu's big assets with the Federal Government is gone.
Dr. Currie, a skilled yellow fever fighter ,has decreed that
the banana trees are a source of danger and, within certain
limits, must go.
Dr. Rupert Blue said this morning: "It's best to get rid of
them . It's safest to take no chances."
These men have made reputations in the Federal Health
Department. And it is the word of the Federal physicians that
will be taken at Washington, when .the navy department
thinks of sending a fleet here, or when the war department
discusses plans to increase its force on Oahu.
Honolulu cannot afford to halt in the campaign. No great
fight was ever won without some sacrifice, some hardship.
The man of the community that cannot back up its health
officials in small things isn't fitted for greater things.
