Can a man -who is a citizen of the
United States and has resided in the
Hawaiian islands les than one year
"vote at the first territorial election in
November next? Is a question that the
supreme court has been asked u decide.
Section 1S59 of the Revised
Statutes of the United States provides
that all citizens of the United Staes
over 21 years of age.who are residents
of a territory at the time of its organization
shall be entitled to vote at
the first election. Yesterday Frank IL
Loucks, who has been a resident ol
Hawaii since the 25th day of October,
1S63. applied for registration and was
refused by the board.
It was agreed bet een Lorrin A. Andrews,
chairman of the board of registration,
and Messrs. Davis & Gear, at
torneys for Loucks, that this should be
made a test case to settle the disputed
point and in accordance with that
agreement Davis &. Gear at once filed
the following petition for Loucks In
the supreme court:
lie it remembered that on the 27th
day of September, 1900, Frank H.
Loucks, plaintiff herein, appeared before
tho defendants, Lorrin A.
D. L. Noane and M. A.
comprising the board of registration
of the island of Oahu, territory
of Hawaii, ,at the office of said board
of registration and personally applied
to said board and members thereof in
Honolulu, while said board was sitting,
to be registered as a voter in order
to bo qualified to vote at the election
to bo held in November, 1S00, !n
the territory of Hawaii.
That the said defendants comprising
said board of registration refused to
register the name of plaintiff.
That plaintiff swore before said defendants
comprising said board of registration
that his name was Frank H.
Loucks; that he was of the age of 27
years; that he was a citizen of the
United States; that ho was born in
Baton Rouge, La.; that he arrived in
Honolulu on the 25th day of October,
A. D. 1S99, and that he resided in said

October. 1S99, down to and including
the 27th day of September, 1S99. and
resided during all of said time In the
Fourth representative district of the
Island of Oahu, in said Honolulu.
That the reason given by said board
of registration for refusing to register
the name of plaintiff was solely and
cxclushcly on tho ground that the

of Hawaii for one year.
That plaintiff has duly appealed
from the decision of the said board of

of Hawaii and assigns and sets
forth that tho said board of
tion erred In refusing to register the
name of plaintiff in that said plaintiff
was entitled to be registered as n

of Hawaii and now in force, and the
Jaws of the United States of America
in force in said territory, and that the

Guard, now in Manila, has been made

August 11, 19C0.
Hon. Sanford B. Bole, Honolulu:
Dear Sir As Captain Paul Smith,
tho only representative, I believe, of
the Territory of Hawaii amongst the
officers of the volunteer army, is In ray
battalion, I have thought it well to
tell you and through you the officers
of his old regiment that his services
have been eminently creditable, both
to Honolulu and to the Hawaiian regiment.
His company has been one of the
best In my command one of those upon
which I most relied, both In garrison
and in the field.
"What I regard as one of the most
skillfully conducted operations of the
minor ones in the campaign was the
action In which Captain Smith, with
about fifty selected men, drove the insurgents
from the trenches at Malabng
on the morning of March 11. At this
point the insurgents had an outpost
of about seventy-five men. well armed
and well entrenched on tho highroad,
about a mile from our position at Da-raga,
in southern Luzon. They had
been unusually obstinate in holding
their position and were always ready
for a good fight when we went against
them. On the morning in question.
Captain Smith was able to arrive before
their trenches at a distance of
about a hundred yards without being
perceived In the early dawn. He immediately
charged their works, drove
the enemy off in confusion, captured
their leader's horse and equipments
and burned their quarters. Their loss
was six or seven killed and about fifteen
On many other occasions Captain
Smith has showed himself to be a
good, faithful soldier, and I hope that
upon his return to Honolulu he will
be properly rewarded. Yours truly.

The meeting of the republican candidates
with the executive committtee at
the republican headquarters in tl'e
Elite building last night was attended
by every candidate on the ticket.
There was a full discussion of the
plans of campaign every candidate expressing
his views as to the best methods
of work to pursue. Secretary
Hendry kept minutes of the proceedings
and from the arguments presented
a plan will be devised by the executive
comittee and at once put into force.
Members of the committee met later
with the candidates from the respective
precincts to discuss and arrange dates
for meetings in both the Fourth and
Fifth districts. The first meeting of
Importance will be held at the Hauula
court house on the north side of tho
island next Saturday night, September
29, at wtfich Samuel Parker and several
other speakers will be present.
The new banner of the independent
home rule party will be flung to the
breeze across Bethel street today. Besides
bearing the name of the party in
both English and Hawaiian it will have
in the center a portrait of
I. Speaking of the use of the portrait
on the banner George Markham
said yesterday: "Kamehameha I was
undoubtedly the greatest man the Hawaiian
race ever produced and it Is
fit we should honor him. Besides that
he united all these islands under one
sovereign, he won the people to him
nnd made them all one. That's just
what the independent home rule party
is going to do now. It is going to
unite all these islands under one party
and it is going to win the people to the
party and make them all united.
That's why we use the picture of the
great chief to signify that the independent
home rule party expects to
unite all the people, just as
At a meeting of the republican executive
committee yesterday it was decided
to have a Merchants' Republican
club organized. The matter was placed
in tho hands of Jos. P. Cooke and
Jos. A Gilman." With their names were
mentioned those of C. A. Graham and
other active and enthusiastic republicans.
Arrangements are already in
progress for carrying out the project.
The independent party will soon suspend
across Bethel street, opposite
their headquarters, a very fine banner,
bearing a large and striking portrait
of King Kamehameha I. The work
is being done by McKechnie, the painter.
The idea is not monarchical, but
allegorical that as "Kamehameha the
Great" united these islands' under one
government, to the benefit of his race,
so the later Hawaiians mean to unite
them as a territory, to the furtherance
of liberty, just laws and Individual

Judge Kaulukou disclaims the doubtful
honor of having been the father of
the 110,000.000 loan act of 1886. The
$10,000,000 loan act of 'S6 won fame 3S
a job of large dimensions among those
who were opposed to it. It was a bill
introduced in the legislature to
provide for the raising of a loan of
$10,000,000, which sum was to be used
In Improving the islands. Legislators
were not wanting to denounce tho bill
as a gigantic effort to steal public
funds and bring about an era of prosperity
among those who would handlo
the "loan." and the bill was warmly
fought over. Kaulukou says that the
honor of having fathered the bill belongs
to E. K. Lllikalani. who Is a

A TYPHOID FEVER
J -2 Ji .3L -V. -34. $ At 44 AL -ii 5i f. 3i
The prospect of an epidemic
of typhoid fever is agitating
the leading members of the
board of health.
Flagrant neglect of duty and
ignorance of medical progress
in the managment of the Chinese
hospital have combined to
give the disease a start in that
institution. One death has already
resulted and Dr. Garvin
found another case there yesterday.
The vigilance of Dr. Garvin
alone will save us from an epidemic
probably. A Chinese physician
returned a death certificate
setting forth that a Japanese
had died of diarrhoea. The
cause of death and other things
raised the suspicions of Dr.
Garvin and he heW a postmortem
examination' on tho
body. He found that death had
resulted from typhoid fever, a
clear, well defined and undisputed
"There was something wrong
in regard to the death certificate,"
said Dr. Garvin lost
night when interviewed by a
Republican reporter. "I decided
to hold on examination, and
after a very thorough test I
found that It was a pure case
of typhoid fever. That made
me decidedly suspicious and I
immediately visited the Chinese
hospital, where the victim had
succumbed. On examinantion I
found that there was one more
case of typhoid fever in the hospital.
Dr. Sugi was the attending
"It seems that Dr. Woods'
prophecy in regard to a typhoid
fever epidemic is certainly coming

thoughtfully. "It shows that
his statement made when the
sewerage question was being
agitated was not all talk. Sewerage
is imperative and If we
have an epidemic on our hands

the whole hospital. It has

The board of health will at
once take hold of the Chinese
institution and make every effort
to stamp out the disease.

The board of education felt rather
aggrieved with the board of health for
its action at the last meeting In making
public certain strictures on the
school buildings in a report by Sanitary
Officer Pratt This fact was made
manifest in a letter from Dr. Rogers,
secretary of the board of education,
acknowledging the receipt of a communication
from Secretary Wilcox
in reference to the matter, onl
which was read in yesterday's meeting.
Dr. Rogers suggested that the
action should have been taken In executive
Dr. Wood said that such action was
not possible, as the subject arose out
of a report to the board and was public
There was another communication
from the board of education asking
that some plan be devised to bring
together the children shut out from
the schools because of physical defects,
so that educational lacilltles of some
sort might be afforded them.
The board of health then discussed
this subject at length. It was clear
that nothing could be done until the
number of children so rejected be ascertained.
Dr. Garvin said the question
of six children at Walaluacut
some figure in the estimate. Up to
date, he said, it has been Impossible
to ascertain anything definite.
Mr. Smith suggested that the board
of education be asked to ascertain and
transmit to the board of health the
number of children so shut out where
they are located, together with the
cause of disbarment It was later discovered
that the matter is practically
covered by a rule requiring such report,
which was amended so that reports
should be required giving full
name and address, together with the
cause, for shutting out of the schools
children and teachers, the same lo be
made in writing. The secretary was
instructed to notify all teachers and
territorial physicians to this effect
The condition of the section of the
city between Punchbowl and Sheridan
streets and from King street to the
ocean, was discussed. It comprises
the section along what is known as
the old ditch and the region contiguous
to it This section has from time
to time given the board much concern
and has been frequently examined.
It was decided to accept the suggestion
of the superintendent of public
works to fill in the streets and refuse
building permits until applicants
agreed to raise their buildings to the-same
level and then fill in their lots.
It was announced that the registrar
of births and deaths for Makawao district
had resigned, and the duties were
added to those of Dr. McConkey.
Executive Officer Garvin reported that
the Sisters were getting anxious about
their pupils now held at Kalihl camp.
They desired them permanently located
It was stated that the girls were taken
to Kalihi camp to remain until a
building In every way sanitary could be
erected. This, It was said, was not possible
until the meeting of the legislature.
There the matter was dropped.
The question of a cemetery site came
up again. It was stated that Governor
Dole. Superintendent McCandless and
representatives of the Rapid Transit
company had gone "out beyond Diamond
Head on Wednesday to select a
site for a new cemetery. They found
a suitable place of about 100 acres,
which will be used provided the Rapid
Transit will extend the electric railway
Executive Officer Garvin said he had
only a verbal report on the subject.
Attorney General Dole said he understood
that a suitable place had been
Dr. Cooper said he had also been so
Informed, but Jhat the Rapid Transit
people wanted a land grant of 100
acres to go out there.
Dr. Wood Won't the carryage of
corpses satisfy them?
Dr. Cooper No, they want a land
A. V. Gear of Gear,-Lansing '& Co.
explained a site of 50 acres beyond Diamond
Head, which Mr. Smith and Dr.
Lowry pronounced an Ideal one for a
cemetery. Mr. Gear exhibited a map
showing the location, demoastratin?
that it had perfect drainage, which was
carried away so as not to pollute any
stream, though it was a mileaad a
half from the ocean.
Dr. Esersoa moved that a committee
of two be appointed to report on

reported that everything was going

difficulties. He said the territory
ought to own a small gasoline steamer,
with which they could pick up cattle
occasionally and do all their own
transpsortation. He contended that
they would make money, as- the boird
