LIST OP SUBSCRIBERS.
In view of the fact that cholera is
becoming more and more prevalent
each day and that sooner or later
many of the poorer classes of Hawaiians
will be in sore distress, it has
been thought best by many promi
nent people to circulate a request ior
voluntary subscriptions to form a
fund that may be placed in competent
hands to purchase food and cloth
ing for all those whose condition may
be worthy of same. Therefore we the
undersigned do pledge ourselves to

Hopoe Sniffen (w), resident of
Kapalama, Peterson's Lane; takeu
sick at 3:10 p. m.; reported at 3:30
In the caso of Hopoe Sniffen, some
peculiar facts have come to light. As
soon aashe was taken sick she sent for
the Chinese physician popularly
known as Dr. "Jones." It had been
told her that he could cure cholera.
He set about to do something for the
woman, but finding tbe case more
than he could manage, telephoned to
the Board of Health office. The ambulance
was sent out and the sick
woman taken to the cholera hospital.
She was in a very weak condition. At
tbe hospital tho Chinese physician
left some medicine and said he would
"be around in the morning" to see
how his patient was progressing.
Although there were three new cases
of cholera reported up to midnight
last nigbt, tue situation may be saiu
to be much Improved during the past
twenty-four hours. Those reported
were all in the localities previously
infected. One of tbe cases developed
at the cholera hospital among those
who had been placed in quarantine
there and taken from premises where
the disease made its appearance.
The Committee of Ten held a meeting
last night and discussed several
important matters bearing on tbe
question of inspection. Additional Instructions
will be given sub-inspectors
as to minute investigation of all premises
at least once daily. Reports
handed in last night showed the sanitary
condition of the city to be much
better than formerly. In order to
stamp out the disease, it has been
found necessary to make a more complete
investigation. All cases of sickness,
no matter of what degree, will
be reported to headquarters, with due
recommendations. It 13 hoped this
will have good effect. All the sub-inspectors
have been working with a
will, and no fault is found with their
A feeling of security pervades the
community that the. extent of disease
has been reached, and, with a continuance
of the methods now employed,
the complete eradication of
tbe dread monster will soon be overcome.
Several well known citizens have
ventured the opinion that it will yet
become necessary to enforce a strict
bouse quarantine and all hands join in
imperative inspection duty. While
this action is not tbought to be absolutely
necessary at tbe present, there
will be no relaxation of the good work
commenced and now being faithfully
At the meeting of tbe Board of
Health yesterday the question of
changing tbe course of Nuuanu stream
toward Iwilei from a point where it
now empties into tbe harbor, was discussed
at length, but no decision
reached. The matter will receive further
consideration at today's meeting.
The relief stations issued rations to
a large number of applicants yesterday,
with a notable decrease during
tbe past twenty-four hours. The total
amount realized for the purpose by
subscription now totals $8,697. If this
is not sufficient for the purpose additional
sums will be forthcoming.

President Smith read the follow

which was referred the proposition
nf tVio tutaf ana f f n T'lortfove
Labor and Supply Company on
the matter of using the Pacific
Mail as a quarantine wharf:
The suggestions made by the trustees
in regard to the use of tbe Pacific
Mail wharf meets with their approval.
They are practical and will,
if faithfully executed, meet tbe requirements
of a proper quarantine. It
will enable clean freight, handled by
clean men, to be-sent on clean vessels
to tbe other islands, thus relieving
the distress that may arise from lack
It rests with the Board to decide
whether it shall abide by the arbitrary
rule it has hitherto followed of
allowing only the absolute necessities
of life to be shipped to the other islands,
or to expand but not to relax its
policy so as to include other necessary
and equally harmless articles of merchandise
It is the opinion of the committee
founded upon the experiences of other
countries and supported by tbe quarantine
regulations of the United
States that the contagium of cholera
is not carneu in new mercnanuise.
There Is no instance on record of the
disease being spread by this medium.
The Board of Health would be
neglecting its duty if it did not provide
a safe means of relieving the distress
that is sure to follow in certain
districts if tbe epidemic lasts a considerable
length of time. It baa already
endeavored to do so to a limited degree,
but the suggestions of the trustees
are more comprehensive and if
strictly followed ought to satisfy any
rational person as to tbe absolute
safety of the goods thus dealt with.
The details of the plan have been
carefully thought out and leave practically
nothing for the committee to
add. Of course, it Is understood that
the ships that enter the harbor shall
remain in strict quarantine, that the
water of tbe bay shall be used foe no
