TOPICS OP THE DAY
It is to bo hoped that when tho
court of claims is established that
mercy will be shown to tho claim
ants by their adyocatos
Tho authorities Bbould remove tho
oranges from Nuuanu street before
the small boys get at them It is in
the control of Bmall details that
principles are conducted to a satis
factory result
If nit poison is to bo used in
exterminating the plague bringing
rodents who will not eat the official
rat pomade wo suggest that tho poi
son bo placed on fruitB and not on
moat fish or othor similar stuff which
dogs and cats will eat The animaU
reforred to will not go for fruits
while the rats rather like a poisoned
banana mango or apple Wo mean
of course when tho toothsome con
coctiou of tho Board of Health is
not arouud
The Irish American says More
trouble with Hawaii That addition
to tho United State with its mixed
population of Chinese Japanese
Kanakas white men of various na
tionalities and other races unclassi
fied is desirous nf admission to the
Union as a territory with future
right of Statehood and not a colony
with a government such as it sus
pects will be giveii to the other isl
ands under our flag This predic
tion was made when Hawaii wrs an
nexed The difficuties involved in
that action will become more ap
parent as time goes on but mean
while what will the Administration
do with Hawaii
We predicted that President Mo
Kiuley would not bo over anxious to
bolp Mr Dole in assuming the re
sponsibility of the damages done by
fire to property in Honolulu by the
action of the self appointed Citizens
Sanitary CoinnUie If Mr Dole
can read betwemi the lines in the
cablegram sent to him by the Wash
ington government he must realize
that Mr McKinley washes his hands
of ourpague and simply says go
ahead Sandy old boy appoint all
the courts of claims you want and
pay the claims out of the funds of
the Hawaiian trdjihiiry and accord
ing to tho provisions of Hawaiian
laws That is the auswer that Mr
Dole did not expect from his great
and good friend at Washington
Several cases of typhoid fever have
been reported from the vessels in
the naval row The stenoh in thn
harbor is awful and we think tho
Board of Health might use some of
tho idle hands in cleaning up the
reef No seaweed has been gath
ered for a long period and it is grow
ing to Buch a length that crabs and
small fishes are ciught in the leaves
and left there to rot and breed
an atmosphere fraught with typhoid
and malarial germs A thorough in
vestigation in regard to tho dump
ing into the sea of the refuse of the
town Bhould aho be held at once
It ia probable tha thedeposits from
tho excavators are floated back by
the in going tide An epidemic of
typhoid fever may prove more dis
astrous to the community than even
the plague
