ifse of Drug Appalling. ' r
"It Is my desire at this time to
consider certain drugs which are com
monly, used la headache cures,' The
more common ones are acetanlllde,
jhenacetln, antlpyrin and aspirin (a
compound of salicylic acid). The ex-
- tent oX the indiscriminate use of these
drugs fn these islands Is appalling.'
. " "My particular objection Is -against
tbe sale of acetanlllde. It is matter
cf common knowledge that this power
ful drug is within the reach of every
wie having the purchase price. One
preparation put up by a local firm and
sold throughout the territory has the
acetanlllde put up In doses of 4.7
grains each.' (The standard dose for
an adult "prescribed by the IT. S. Phar
maccpoeta Is four grains.) The direc
tions prescribe for an adult one dose
three times a day and even prescribe
a certain percentage for cnimren un-
i der two years of age. - . .
"Another preparation, also made by
a large local firm and sold throughout
the territory, prescribes for tbe adult
4 dose of 4.7 grains of acetanlllde to
be taken three times day. The medi
cine is also prescribed for children ,oT
- all ages. .-... -v-, - v : "
The point I wish to make here Is
that It is positively . dangerous for
anyone not trained In the - action of
drugs to use a powerful drug like acet
snlllde in tbe heavy dosage prescribed
above and then repeat the dose thrae
times a day.Mt requires from 24 to, 30
'hours for the system to throw off a
dose of aeetanllde.' ': ; i.. ,
Does Not Cure Disease; " V
. "(One of the best authorities (Cush
nyj on the action of drugs on: the
human system says that the fever re

nacetin." which' as" previously stated
are also-commcnly Used for headaches.
do, hot remove the cause of the di
sease,' but "only removes one ; of ' the
symptoms, that is, the fever. In tbe
eases of colds and typhoid, fever, for
'Instance, the fever is only an outward
manifestation of the disease within.
Therefore, when acetanlllde, phenace
tin or 8ntipyrin have been taken the
fever' is reduced : and ' the patient is
not aware' of his' true condition and
. furthermore the' true diagnosis of the
case Is rendered more difficult when
a physician Is consulted.
"Bulletin 126, Bureau of Chemlstery,
by Dr. L. F. Kebler, chief of the di
vision of drugs, gives an Interesting
account of the harmful effects of acet-
, anllide, antlpyrin and phenace tin, on
page 20 of the publication. Dr. Keb
ler quotes from the findings of a com
mittee of the British Medical Associa-I
tion showing many cases of depres
sion, collapse and cyanosis and several
cases of death from the use of the
above mentioned drugs In no. larger
quantity than -are' prescribed 'in-many
preparations made and . sold locally.
Dr. Kebler further states: The symp-
torn which appears most frequently in
the recorded cases of . poisoning by
acetanlllde, Is cyanosis. (The turning
blue or blackish blue of the skin.) To
further quote: It (cyanosis) is due
to a, deterioration In the quality, of
the blood caused directly by the pres
ence of decomposition products of acet-
. anillde . '
One Death on Kauai.

tlme turned blue of blatkish true at
the; time -'cf death. This, of course,
meant cyanosis "or the deterioration of
' the blood due to the decomposition
products of acetanilide in Cf a' system".
"A very great evil also results from
the fact that these drugs- are habit
forming.' '..'-' '" '-..' ' ' "J
.."Patent remedies containing ' such
powerful drugs as acetanlllde, antipy-j
rin and r henacetin have their use only
tinder the specific direction, of ap In

sold only on prescription. - -

seems to me that U U very unwise
for the average person to take into his

In a apecial car, the delegation was
received by President Wilson at the
executive mansion. The president, ac
cording to Capt; Mix, looked r some
what worn and weighted with his
countless burdens of state, and yet
h"d an unfailing smile and a kindly
word for his visitors. ':. -
'Capt Mix, by reason of S3 years of
active and. extensive operations in
Mexico, his close and constant contact
1 during an these years with the Diaz
and each succeeding regime since the
dictator's overthrow, and at the same
time bis unusual facilities to view the
situation as an American citizen, is
regarded as an authority on conditions
In our sister republic. J His observa
tions,- therefore, while conservative,
carry great weight.. .;
Saw Stirring Scenes.
"I commenced operations In Mexico
in 1882 said Capt Mix this morn in
"end from that yeir down to this1 day
it has been tbe field of my activities.
My home from 19fiC until about, two
years ago was in the City of Mexico,
and I have been an eye-witness to the
stirring scenes that featured the capi
tal's life during that stormy period
v "With Senor Don Ramon Corril, one
of Mexico's strong men, I expended
large' sums of money end years of ef
fort In developing the state of Sonora,
which; adjoins Arizona, and when Se
nor Corral was elected vice-president
under the - Diaz administration ?! ac
companied him to the City of Mexico.
Together we labored to build up and
strengthen the Diaz regime, and we
can Justly claim credit for much of
the progress mde by the republic dur
ing the latter portion of the,term of
office of the great dictator.
. ' "In nis later yeara Diaz came to rely
upon my : associate - more than any
ether one man in the country. In his
later days Diaz was querulous and ex
tremely- difficult to deal with, and his
always Iron will seemed to grow more
rigid.--. Corral - was the only member
of the official suite who braved the
displeasure of his chief by daring to
disagree with him. When Senor. Cor
ral left Mexico in April, 1911, for Eur
cpe, for treatment at the continental
baths, : Diaz lost the best brain and
one of the strongest personalities In
Mexico; and the master hand that had
steered the Diaz ship of state through
many shoals and along tortuous chan
nels ' when the intellect and force ol
the nominal master were no longer
dependable, was sorely missed. The
vicissitudes that followed the over
throw of Diaz have brought the Mexi
can politic?! pot beyond the boiling
point many times., since, but I have
reason to feel that there are better
days coming. ;'. -v. : -
Madero Not Practical.
Madero was utterly incapable of gov
eralns the country. He was not in
the least a practical nana, and in al
most every way was the antithesis ol
Diaz. He was devoted to cults which
appeal to the caprices of comparative
ly few men, and which lend no aid to
the administration of matters of stite.
He 'was a devout spiritualist, a vego
tarian, an ardent prohibitionist, and
in medicine was a follower of the
Hahnemann school. In fact; In many
instances ho w?s more devoted ' to
these doctrines ' than he was to the
governing of an almost seml-civilized
people. May I express it by sayjng
that he was consumed by his fads,
hobbles and theories? . ,
"On cne occasion, for instance; to
Illustrate that Madero was at least ec
centric, I made an official call with
the 'American ambassador- at Chapul
tepee 'casUev1, Madero was attired In
conventional black long coat and black
trousers, but sported a sky-blue'waist-ccast
and were slippers. This, remem
ber, i'at a 1 formal function of state!
"Mexico, as many people ere not
aware; ha but two classes of people,
the aristocrats and the peons." There
is no middle class. I should say of
Gen. Villa, while It Is apropos, that he
Is an exception to this classification.
Villa Is a connecting link between the
two classes," like Pascual Arosco and
many other revolutionary ' leaders.
Oea. Huerta proved himself an iron
man and If our government ' had ; ex
tended recognition to him it is quite
probable that the republic would have
by this time solved most of its prob
lems," , - "r :;;:-.J ,-: ;-V;T ' .0: : ..

the? probability of Intervention, r de'
dined to commit: himself. "It Is a
subject I must not discuss," he said.
i -But," he added significantly, "I be
lieve that I know what will be done."
Asked as to the truth of the per
sistent Vumors from Washington ;to
the effect that the United States will
probably 'intervene by the first of Oc
tober, Capt Mix admitted that he had
heard much of such talk in, Washing
ton, but further than that he "declined
. eople often unwittingly comment
upon the fact that, very, large Inter
ests in Mexico are owned or controlled

erate' and 'semi-crvlllsed population.
The educated men," lawyers, bankers,

"Speaking of intervention, it is said
that every time two Mexicans' cf af

turns to' intervention and each confi

lems is that course. But let a third

Sonera. Likes Americana. '
4 Through all the varying fortunes of
the last four years In Mexico the rich
state of Sonora has felt less than other
sections the war's baneful effects.
This Is accounted for largely by the
fact that Sonora. is populated by Mexi
cans of the jnore enlightened class,
most of vhom have been for many
years in close touch and . sympathy
with; Americans. They have readily
absorbed American Ideas and have
found it materially profitable to be on
friendly terms with their "American
neighbors. - .
"The present governor of Sonora.
Jose Maria Maytorena, was born and
reared in Guaymas, and is a member
of a family, which has many great and
valuable haciendas in the state. May
torena. is an able administrator and
a progressive of the best type.- It is
interesting to note that his father, by
the same identical name, had for years
ineffectually aspired to the governor
ship which his son now holds. Senor
Maytorena . has heretofore always
shown his warm friendship for Amer
icans and for the country to the north
with its lofty Ideals and practical jus
tice, and the incident In Wednesday
morning's despatches telling of the
flag desecration at Naco by some of
his soldiers will be followed promptly,
you will see, by their punishment and
proper amends to our government" ;

duction from Governor Hunt of Ari

GIVES PROMISE OF GOING WELL!
Richard Deming of American
Surety Co. Satisfied With r
" Progress of Contract
; That work on the HUo breakwater
contract is going along smoothly, and
In a way that is satisfactory to the
bondsmen of the contractor, Is the
statement of Richard Deming, vice
president of the American Surety Com
pjny of Philadelphia, which concern
is behind George E. Marshall in the
execution of the present contract Mr.
Deming arrived In the Matson hi Tues
day last and leaves this afternoon for
the scene of operations at Hllo.
It Is a year alnfost to'a day since
Mr. Deming left here, after success
fully negotiating the transfer of tbe
old contract to Marshall. The Ameri
can Surety - Company was behind the
now defunct Breakwater Company of
Philadelphia, and when the latter con
cern was unable to continue the con
tract for the superstructure of the
Hllo breakwater, Mr. Deming came to
Honolulu to untangle affairs.
The Hllo breakwater, job has been
a'suece3sion of delays and disappoint
ments, but now it looks like fair sail
ing, for the future. It was Impossible
to get rock of sufficient size from the
first quarry for the cap and .slopes of
the breakwater, and the new contrac
tor had to open a quarry at Waipio,
which .meanf a 40-mile haul .to " the
Hilo breakwater, t ; ; V C : ;
; Landing conditions wei 3 so poor at
Waipio that it was found, necessary to
build a breakwater there before rock
could be loaded on the scows. This
Waipio breakwater, although put up
entirely as a necessary adjunct to the
work of the Contractor, is really a
permanent improvement It is very
substantial, nd wide enough for paral
lel railroad tracks. A wharf was built,
and a . large locomotive crane set up,
a sea-going tug purchased, and heavy
barges constructed before a single ton
of rock could be placed on the Hllo
breakwater. '-. " " :. ' "'- " " ' '
We figured on having all this work
done by May 1, 1915 " said Mr. Dem
ing this morning. "As a matter of
fact we begah . putting" Tock' on "the
HIIq breakwater June ' 3(TK which is
fairly' close' figuring,;' considering that
everything had to be finished "at prac
tically the same time, to save useless
overhead expense. v v
"There are now operating a sea-going
tug of plmost 5Q0 horsepower, and
two specially f built' barges, each of
600-tons capacity." . A third barge , is
almost completed, and Will be launched
In about 10 dys. When this Is in
operation, rock can be taken from the
Waipio quarry and unloaded without
holding up th,e tug, which will be in
constant operation." ' :? -

in' about two weeks, and will remain

Definite plans to secure all available
data hefore active investigations are
commenced were decided upon this
morning by the commission on water
investigation a; Its first meeting. The
decision: was reached after, the read
ing -of a communication from Chair
man L. A. Thurston, who is at Hilo
and was unable to be present ':
To secure this data and get It com
piled into form convenient for Inves
tigation, the services of a clerk and
stenographer are to be secured at a
rate of $12i a months the appointment
to be made by the secretary of the
Commission. - Much data' is available
In the department of public works.
The commission elected Charles R.
Forbes as secretary to act .throughout
the investigation. Following tbe elec
tion a general discussion was held in
regard to sources possible for investi
gation. Mr, Forbes stated that from
trips he had taken previously to Wai
hee he deemed that location a fruit
ful one for consideration. It was also
stated that the Walahole tunnel proj
ect Should 'b'e considered, in -that at
the end "of 15 years a percentage of
this property comes under the owner
ship of the city and county and that in
50 years the municipality takes com
plete control. It was the belief of the
commission that this ' fact should not
be overlooked. ; -I ? - i V4
