Speaking . with regard to the deten tion of the woman at the immigration station for six days after arrival here with her husband, Mr. Halsey said this morning: ! "Sometimes, a doctorcannot tell at once whether the person detained is suffering from trachoma or any other dangerous disease, and because of this they are held at the station a lit tle longer than is the custom- I nave known aliens to be suffering with eye trouble caused from salt water, and wind, and many have been held on this account pending an investigation by the surgeon. The medical exam ination of aliens arriving, at the port of Honolulu is conducted by a surgeon of the public -health service acting under the immigration law, and not under the Chinese exclusion act. AU aliens," as well as Chinese, are subject to the immigration act- In case the surgeon of the public health service returns a certificate stating that the person examined is afflicted , with a dangerous contagious disease, .the board of special inquiry is obliged to order the deportation of that, per son. ' ? -v-' These examinations are made ex clusively by the public health sur geon, acting under Section iu oi me immigration laws. He also makes out and submits, the ; health certificates. The immigration officials have abso lutely nothing to do nor say with regard to.; wnat report this surgeon shall make upon the 'condition of any alien.'- The matter is entirely in his hands, and the office rules according ly. If the alien Is given a clean bill of health, he is landed; if he is suf fering from a ' dangerous disease, he is deported. The Chinese woman in question was detained at the immigra tion station from May . 26 to June 2 six' days, during which time the sur geon was making his examination. v hen she came ' in the . Siberia, - she was found admissable in every re spect, except that she had not passed the medical examination at the local tederal office. ' ' Shev was held at t the statlonr aWalting this,.' and : when she had successfully passed, it she was immediately released. It is Impossi ble for an immigration inspector to ascertain Just how .long the surgeon wiU hold any alien, or at what time he will permit him to be released. I do not even know ' this myself. ' When the- surgeon has passed him he will be released." ' . ,;''; "' " ;'', When asked as to whether it would be . possible . for any person ; other than an immigration official to ascer tain the time when a certain alien was to be released from detention, he ans wered emphatically in the negative, inspector Halsey, as well as Inspect ors Farmer and Brown, are strongly disinclined to believe that Tam Quay ever, paid out any " money for the re lease of his wife, and they are of the opinion, they say, that his story looks like a decideu frame-up on the part of the Chinese. . ; ; ' ' LCv-v.llil T i.l.l.l I ii - illlii.

THE rBODQCT OF DICTATORSHIP The bitterness of Mexico's internal, war is powerfully told by a picture hat has come to this Iaper, the coer illustration of a little periodical ? "Senate has troubles enough without getting into quarrel over Pinkham," says a newspaper headline. Well, hasn't Hawaii trouble enough also without keeping up this eternal fight?

The gueril las are standing in attitudes of proud achieve--ment, Governor Carranza of Coahuila. is in the midst, thumbs in his vest-pockets, well-satisfied with the work of destruction. Perhaps under the ragged coats of these wild raiders there are hearts full of patriotism, but th scene is much more suggest ive of ruthless retaliation, uggest- "Dust unto Dust" was written a long time ago, but it applies distinctly to Honolulu, "Anno Domini 1913.
