by the health committee of tho board
of supervisors at a meeting Thursday

Minute of the meeting made public

Dr. J. 9. B. Pratt produced at the

pointed out that the present guard

McCarthy- said 'in his letter.

be free to remain in the United states

When the stowaways nrrived here
Kichari.l J Helrey, inspc-ctor in charge

This is the first wsive of this nature
tlint has touched Honolulu since the
stif ting nNnormnl military situation in

decision of the secretary1 of labor wns
wholly unexpected by Inspector Halsej
who fiitly anticipated that the men

Ptis-'iblv the men will secure employ

by Wnlscy that their ultimate goal is

Whether there will be a rush from
