HONOLULU, Dec. 31.—Waiting for,

110 Filipinos, sent here by;the labor re
cruiting agents of the Hawaiian plant- j
ers' association, who have been'con- j
demned as unfit by the federal quaran- !
Among the afflictions with which the ■
newcomers are troubled are-^^ trach- I
oma, tuberculosis. Itch, beriberi, blind- j
ness,. Idiocy, -pneumonia and hookworm. j
Two of the number died on the way
from Hongkong.* another has died ln

lieved to be dying*. ,' »_,' , :
''Under Instructions from the governor
the attorney general Is delving into his
law .books tO : see if **. the - territorial j
authorities can do anything:to prevent
this collection of diseases from being
dumped on to the community.
The planters say , that after their
agents had selected a shipment of
laborers and provided them with pass
age money, someone; substituted the
lame and the blind and the halt for -
healthy men arid women.
There are about 3,000 Filipinos in the
territory, and the fear Is expressed by
