FOR DISINFECTING WATER.
Editor Honolulu Star-Bulletin,
Sir: A great effort is now being
made In a great many cities of the
United States to disinfect the; water
and with a considerable amount of
There are several methods employ
ed to kill the bacteria and to remove
other impurities which are found iu
water, and particularly in surface wa
ter, or water that flows from fields,
mountains, etc. and which gathers up
go much refuse matter and deposits
it in the reservoirs.
The proper filtration of impure wa
ter through sand is said to remove
95 to 99 per cent of the bacteria from
the water, but even this method leaves
enough of this substance to be a men
ace to inhabitants.
Light and oxygen, chlorine, ozone
and ultra-violet light and other meth
ods are also being used in various
cities of America for cleansing the
water. The ozone method for steril
izing water which is more in use in
Europe is trsed with success. The
ozoned' air Injected into the water is
usually affected by pressure, and is
absorbed by the water; and some of
the plants will handle 10.000,000 gal
lons per day but it is not in general
use as yet.
The chlorine process is more gen
erally used in America and there are
quite a number of cities that are using
it extensively. It is usually used as
bleaching powder, and it takes but .5
per cent to 1 per cent when applied
to the water, and the cost is said to
be only 6 cents for each 1,000,000 gal
lons (treated. This method is used
after the water' is filtered, sand filters
probably being used. At the Cincin
nati filtration plant 500,000,000 gallons
of water were treated in this way In
four months and it was proved to be a
; Liquified chlorine gas' Is also used
for this purpose. It is not generally
known just how. this, substance de
stroys the bacteria wfcen applied to
water, but it is thought'.tt may be by
the "action of nascent qxygen, and to
the energy of this reaction."
tfow Hawaii is certainly up to date
in many things, but weare very far
behind In others, and though we have
at times the most impure, if not the
most filthy water of any city that 1
have ever known of, not one, -so far as
anyone has. earL haay ihflgghfc of ater
iliiing or filtering or cleansing it by
any scientific, manner by the5 govern
ment. But surely it Is abouttiine to
give this matter some consideration,
and to adopt some method of purify
ing it. For everyone will admit that
this is one of the most serious ques
tions and one that is of the most im
portance to the welfare of the people
of this city. And if it can be shown
that water can'. be purified for 6, or
even 60 cents for 1,0.00,000 gallons,
something' should be done about It.
It is said that only about one-fourth
of the water is surface water, and
therefore it Is iot as if the total
amount was to be passed through this
Another mistake is me mixing of
the pure water with the impure, but
under the present circumstance there
is probably no help for it
Very truly yours.

Sir: A Korean steals some good
wire and is convicted. The court
sends him to jail for five years at
hard labor. A police officer who
knows the law, robs a prisoner, beats
him up and only loses his job. If he
is guilty, why don't the sheriff pros
ecute him under the more serious
charge, or Is it because the Hawaiian
has a vote and the Korean none.
