NEWS SURPRISES ALL
Neither Association Nor
Special Cablo to Tho Advertiser.
WASHINGTON, May 23.
George McK. MeClellan, Bocre.
tary to Delegate Kuhlo and unofficial
representative horo of
the Honolulu Chamber of Commerce
and tho Honolulu Merchants'
presented his resignation to the
Dologato and mailed letters of
resignation to the Honolulu commercial
bodies. In his resignation,
Mr. McClollan requests
that it take effect in October.
The Delegate today, In discussing
tho resignation of Mr,
MeClellan, expressed his regret
at losing his services, which, ho
said, had been invaluable.
Totally unexpected was tho news
yesterday from "Washington that Mr.
MeClellan had decided definitely to resign
from his manifold" positions';
Neither tho chamber of commorco
trustees nor tho president of tho merchants'
association had received any
intimation that tho resignation was
contemplated. Both bodies received
letters from their representative yester
day, but iu tho several letters no hint
was giyen that a successor to tho writer
must soon ho chosen.
The Advertiser cablo via3 read at an
executive meeting of the trustees of the
chamber of commerce yesterday afternoon
and was received with surprise.
A fow questioning looks were given,
after Presidont Spalding had read tho
cablegram out loud, and there were a
few smiles, as though tho news, whilo
unexpected! according to all present,
was not altogether uitlooked for in some
form or other.
Term Soon Up.
"Mr. MeClellan 's term is up iu Octo-"
ber," said Emil Bcrndt, of tho merchants'
association directorate, "and
that may bo why ho has resigned.
There might have boen a question in his
imnd as to whether ho was to be reappointed
or not." -
President Gignoux, of tho association,
was surprised when tho message was,
shown to him. "I had not the slightest
idea that this was coming," he said.
Naturally, some have sought tho
possible political ond to tho matter.
"Perhaps ho has resigned rather than
continue with Kuliio and lmvo to mora
or less sanction tho attack on Trear,"
said a territorial government official,
whilo a politician, one of tlio wise ones,
doped it out this way:
"You see, Kuhlo may bolievo ho will
have a couplo of real hard nuts to crack

GALLONS OF FINE E
IT BE SOLD E
Twenty-four hundred gallons of extra
fine wlno is lying iu a storehouse
near tho waterfront and will have to
be shipped back to tho Coast before
it can bo sold hero, and thereby hangs
a tale. Tho wlno is the property of
Mrs. A. B. Dias who arrived hero with
her husband, household goods and livestock
to commence farming by the last
Mrs. Dins brought to Honolulu,
among other things, forty-eight cases
of wine which she made herself in
California, extra good red wine, under
the 'impression that she could sell horo
what slio did not want for home, consumption,
tinder tho law here this cannot
be done unless she takes out a license
costing a thousand dollars.
According to an official in close touch
with the situation, tho only way for
her to sell tho wino here is to have it
shipped back to California, and then
sell it hero to some wholesaler by sample,
tho wine coming back hero consigned
to the person or firm to whom
she sells it.

BOARD OF HEALTH SERIOUSLY
PERTURBED AT EXISTING
STATE OF AFFAIRS.
At a meeting of tho board of health
yesterday afternoon tho reading of a
report upon tlio condition of cemeteries
in Honolulu by Dr. -Irwin J. Shepherd,
in which wns embodied tho Toport of
Sanitary Officer Tracy drawn up ton
years ago, aroused the membors of tho
board to a realization of tho need of
immediate action to prevent tho further
overcrowding of tho burial
grounds within tho city limits.
Doctor Shepherd's report substantiated
that of tho Tracy document and
showed that nearly every cemotery in
tho city is filled to its full capacity,
that 4n some, casos tho bodies had bcou
buried oa top of one another, thus
bringing tho coffins within a fow feot
of tho surface and being a menace to
tho health of tho thicklv vomikUod com

many cases, as tho roport showod, tho

for these people must bo made.
At present most of tho bodies aro taken
to Pearl City, but it has been said
that tne burial ground there bus not

expense of maintaining a caretaker. Wo
cortainly should make somo provision
