APPEAL TO CITIZENS
FOB SINEWS OF WAR
Mosquito Committee Gefs Downlo Work Will
Have Captain of Campaign Aid in
An Immediate canvas3 for the sinew s
of war required In the mosquito destroying
campaign la to be made.
All householders of Honolulu may
have their empty tin cans taken away
free of charge on Fridays.
A competent man Is to be employed,
with the least possible delay, to captain
the crusade against the pest.
The foregoing results are the outcome
of a short meeting held by a
small contingent of the Citizens' Mosquito
Committee held at the Board of
Health headquarters jesterdny afternoon.
After hnlf an hour's wait over the
appointed hour the following named
proceeded to business: Dr. C. B. Cooper,
president of the Board of Health
and chairman of the committee; Dr.
L. E. Cofer, Chief Quarantine Officer
of the United States for this Territory;
W. E. Row ell, acting Assistant
Superintendent of Public Works; C. H.
Tracy, City Sanitary Officer; Capt.
Sam. Johnson, In charge of the Public
Works garbage service; P. M. Pond,
P. R. Helm, P. W. Macfarlane and D.
I Van Dine.
Dr. Cooper announced the object as
being to get down to a plan of operations
Boird of Health ofllcers were
already working. Means of raising
funds were to be devised. Somebody
wao wanted to take the head of the
movement. Mr. Tracy's hands were
full of his own duties, but whoever was
appointed should be under his direction
so that the movement would have
authority of the Board of Health.
Dr. Cofer said there had been much
talk over the means of raising funds
at the time of the rat crusade.
Mr. Macfarlane thought the first
business wns to consider the methods
to be employed and after that was settled
they w ould have a .better Idea of
what It ias going to cost. Though the
matter was entirely foreign to him he
wns In sympathy with the movement.
The Board of Health should suggest
something about the method of starting
Dr Cooper replied that the Board
had already started In by Instructing
the sanitnry Inspectors to ndvlse people
to clear off empty cans, fill up stagnant
pools, cover cesspools, protect
tanks with wire gauze nnd treat standing
water with oil. The Inspectors
could not do this work themselves but
onlv advise householders
Mr. Macfarlane spoke of the difficulty
of filling up ponds from his observation
nt Walktkl, where for two years
material had hpen going Into a pond
without producing appreciable effect.
Individuals could do a great deal by
giving Instructions to natives living
Dr. Cooper told of a pool of abomination
he had dlscoered at Kakaako
on a rpcent call there.
Mr. Pond advocated that every division
of work should bo given to a
separnte committee. There should be
a problem committee, nn investigation,
a community, a school, and a press
committee, with effort concentrated upon
Mr. Van Dine thought committees
should report to the president of the
Board of Health to have the work proceed
In a systematic way.
Mr. Macfarlane flnld the work should
Tie under authority of the Board, otherwise
people would not respect the
Dr. Cooper anticipated an earlv
deendenee of public Interest, which was
reason for pushing the work at the
Mr. Mncfarlane held there ought to
bo enough public Interest to ensure the
funds required. They could nt least
start In on a moderate scale nnd have
the smaller nuisances abnted first. He
gave an Instance of wnter left standing
In a horse pond for several days
In which the horses had not been
bathed. If the chairman could give
an Idea of what the cost of campaign
would be, a finance committee might be
appointed to devise means for raising a
Dr. Cooper, replying to Mr.
questions, said there wns nothing
available from the Board's appropriation,
but the Board could give
commissions and badges to workers.
Besides, some nsststanco was promised
from the garbage service of the Public
Works Department. They wanted
n man, however, for the head of the
Mr. Trncy did not think a suitable
mnn could be obtained for less than
J125 a month, as he would be on cnll
both day and night. Another necessity
would be a cleaning gang. Captain
Johnson would gle the use of a
wagon and two men part of the time
for gntherlng up tin cans nnd other
rubbish. This would bo every Friday.
He hnd followed up the work of an Inspector
for two days nnd found good
results, but there were empty lota with
nobody taking care of them. Ho did
not think It necessary to have any new
regulations ns yet. In answer to Mr.
Macfarlane, he Bald people generally
would donato needed kerosene oil. Replying
to Mr, Pond, ho thought $200 a
month would bo enough with volunteer
Mr. Row ell said the storm water
sewers were In charge of the sewer
Mr. Van Dine thought treatment of
these sewers once In two weeka would
bo sufficient, but Dr. Cooper and Mr.
Row ell said together once a week
would ba safer,
Mr. Pond asked If there was any
possibility of having the garbage collecting
changed back to a free system.
Dr. Cooper said that was a question
for the Publlo Works Department.
Captain Johnson said the pay system
wns started by Mr. Bovd and
might be done nwny with by

Dr. Cooper suggested the preparation
of n circular In various languages to
be generally distributed.
Then followed a general talk on
modes of raising funds, which ended In
the appointment of Messrs Pond nnd
Helm ns a finance committee. They
will prepare n circular of Information
to go with subscription lists, different
from the one of Instruction proposed
by the chairman which will not be
It was voted, on motion of Mr.
Pond, to give the chairman authority
for deciding Incidental questions.
Superintendent Atkinson wns appointed
a committee to direct the campaign
in the schools.
Dr. Cooper, repljlng to Mr. Macfarlane,
said the published account of
a species of mosquito that destroyed
the biting kind would be Investigated,
ns well as the reported discovery of a
parasite that got away with the pest.
Captain Johnson wanted to know
what about appointing a man In
charge of the campaign.
Dr. Cooper replied that they ought
I to go very slow. He must do a gooa
man. The Board of Health should appoint
him. On motion of Mr.
seconded by Captain Johnson,
this suggestion wns adopted, Dr. Cooper
remarking that nothing would be
done without consulting the committee.
Mr. Pond remarked that If the business
wns going to throw any extra
work on Mr. Tracy, he ought to be
given compensation out of the fund.
Mr. Vnn Dine said nobody knew the
town po well ns Mr. Tracv. Ho moved
that the chairman be empowered to
employ some person under the direction
of the city sanitary officer nnd
that this officer receive some compensation
to be fixed by the committee.
Dr. Cooper suggested an early meeting
for receiving reports of progress,
nnd the meeting adjourned until

according to n report received
from the Dep.i tment of Agriculture by
Director Jnred G. Smith of the United
Stntes Experiment Stntlon.
Tho olona fibre grows wild In the
Olna district on Hawaii and many
j ears ago was believed to be very valuable.
Tho difficulty has always been
In obtaining n suitable mechanical extractor
and the Department finds tills
to be hopeless. The sample of specimen
of fibre obtained from the material
sent by Director Smith was sent back,
and Is apparently ot little value. It
nppears to be very fine but lifts little
The Olona Is a native name for a
Hawaiian plant which was much used
In years gone by for the manufacture
of fish lines and nets. These were of
course mnde by hand, and the fibre
wns extracted through the same primitive
methods. In tho seventies tho
fibre was exported to Switzerland
where It was sold to Swiss Alpine clubs
It being much In demand because of
Its light weight and great strength.
The sample obtnlned by the government
Agricultural Department though
of light weight Is not of grent strength.
The letter received by Mr. Smith
from Lyster II. Dewey, tho botanist In

communication from tho chemistry
bureau where tests were made of tho
fibre. Mr Dewey nlso says ho Is glad

THE QUEER LOT
Editor Advertiser Not long since an
ncqunlntnnce, n layman, expressed the
view that the eminent physicians and
scientists that I have had tho privilege
of quoting for jears past In jour Journal,
wero "a queer lot." I havo yet
another of that kind, not however
this time a physician but a naval officer
who In the past few weeks addressed
a letter to King Edward asking if
he might issue an order stating that
His Majesty did not consider It necessary
that avhen his health was given,
It should bo drunk In wine. Tho
King's secretary replied that "His
thought tho Lords of tho Admiralty
would not like his Interference by
Issuing orders, but ho would be glad
if it was circulated privately that His
Majesty considered that his health was
as much honored by those who drank
It In water as by those who drank It In
wine". Swift on the heels of this
pronouncement comes word from Germany
that Count von Haeseler, lately
commander of tho sixteenth army
corps, has Issued a strong protest
against tho use of Intoxicants. He
sajs: "Tho soldier who obstnlns altogether
Is the best mnn. Ho can ac
complish more, march better and Is a
better soldier than tho man who drinks
even moderately. Mentally and
ho Is better."

question of city burials nnd settle It,
The need has long been apparent.

burial In them of any but lot-owner
and their families who had acquired
their rights before the order wns Issued.
However, little attention Wins
paid to this decree, burials went an
Indiscriminately and Interest In tho
matter died out, as It had a few yenro
previously, when It was proposed to
substitute a burial ground on Punch
bowl for those In the settled districts
of the town.
It Is only a few months ago that
tho mnttcr ciimo up again. Another
order was Issued and then, at the demand
of people Interested In the pres
ent cemeteries, It wns rescinded. What
wns tho result? What but a postponement
of the Inevitable, tho taking ot
further publlo risks, the deprivation
of the coming dend of prlvncy In their

Meanwhile deaths havo gone on la

germs of disease on the community.
In plnces the soil Is packed with bodies,

Of couiso tho more bodies, tho more
