KahulUi Port Has Been Kept "Clean" By Dint of Good
y Work Special Tax to Be Discontinued As
Enough Money Is Available.
It has been decided by the com
mittee in charge of the Quarantine
Fund, to Btop any further special
tonnage tax for the present. It is
considered that there is sufficient
money in hand at present to safe
guard the port of Kahului from any
chance of being declared "infected. 'f
Should any necessity arise, however,
the money now in the bank and
drawing interest, would nt once be
used to provent the spread of any
disease. The tax of ten cents per
ton on all foreign and American
freight would bo renewed, and the
same safe methods would bo used to
safeguard the port as in the past.
The Inter-Island Company do not
pay the Kahului tonnage tax, as the
company pays in Honolulu at the
same rate.
The good done by the committee
in chargo of the Fund can bo readi

The plan is, as soon as any cases
of contagious diseases dovelopo, to
segregate the sick people and the
contacts. Every precaution is taken
to prevent the spread of discaso and,
that the methods employed are
successful, is shown by tho fact
that, although there have been out
breaks of different kinds of diseases,
Kahului has always remained a
clean port.

Pogue, "and, in tho mean time,
have a search made for old desks
at other schools. These seats would

It was decided to instruct the
district overseer to look around for
school desks and when found to send
them, by wagon, to Lahaina.
There was somewhat of a debate
over who is to pay for the electric
lighting ofthe Lahaina wharf. It is
reported that the County of Maui
should pay for the lights on the
wharf. At least that is MarBton
Campbell's opinion.
Tho next matter brought up was
that of tho examiner of chauffeurs.
There was a little discussion on that
subject and it is reported elscwhero

Special Correspondence.
Honolulu, October 11.
Each campaign has its comedy fea
ture, and it usually comes from some
yokel who is put un in order that
some otho candidate may be helped.
But this time Kuhio seems to be
mouthpiece and Dowsett the joke.
You will remember that when Dow
sett accepted the suggestion that
in tho opinion of tho business men

one who could get votes enough to
beat Cupid) ho did so it in the full
spirit in which the business men
made it. Of course Desha and
Kuhio and nearly every other Haw
aiian, in politics and out, grew less
mild. It was another case of the
haoles trying to run things. As
time passed and Dowsett heard no
thing of support coming his way
from the business men, he withdrew
giving for his reason tho apparent
apathy of the business men as to
his candidacy. Now comes the joker.
Dowsett received the nomination
for senator on tho regular ticket
and the Hawaiians, for his accept
ance of tho offer of tho business men,
feel cold toward him. Kuhio knows
it and in order boost him ho tells
tho story that Dowsett did not know,
when the business men thrust
honors upon him, that Kuhio was
candidate. In expressing an
tho public
holds its noso and says 'It's fine,
thank you."
There is some objection to the
nomination of two pronounced sugar
men for tho senate. Renton is all
right, and lor mat matter so is
Dowsett, but the .interest of tho
latter is broader than sugar, greater
far than the interests of Renton so

matters to look after than will Ren

By Dr. A. N. Sinclair.
The world is buckling on tho fine
armor of modern research and
knowledge, and is sending its com
bined strength into the field against
tuberculosis. Tubcrlosis, an ancient
enemy ot mankind, which lor
thousands of years has ruled master
over tho fato of thousands of lives,
has been an inexorable task-maker
with the power of the high justice,
the middle and the low, and there
has been no appoal. Armed insur
rection against it is an incident of
modernity, a matter of only a few
I wish to impress you with the
fact -that in Hawaii, tho Board of
Health, the Anti-Tuberculosis Lea
gue, private institutions and private
philanthropy have combined to
muster their forces against tubercu
losis. Feeble as are the arms Hawaii
has to offer against tuberculosis and
the invasion of tho white plague,
these bodies have hopes of attaining
a moderate success, of checking the
invasion, of saving many lives and
ot preventing the searing of many
others, eventually to place the
people of Hawaii in a position where
tuberculosis will find scant welcome
and bad fare.
The work against this disease in
the territory has been growing
for several years. A number of
valuable points have been gained,
and advances have been made that
assure to Hawaii an ultimate com
plete success. Brielly the stage now
reached is that whero responsibility
shifts shoulders.
If I may term tho ardor with
which certain individuals have de
voted themselves to this work as a
"fanaticism of philanthropy," I
will say that fanaticism has taken
tho Territory as far as it can. En
thusiasm is tho force that must
move it hereafter and enthusiasm is
a weaponof tho masses, just as
tuberculosis is a disease of tho
So tho responsibility rests now
upon those who-constitute tho mass
of the people in this Territory. It
is a cosmopolitan populace, to which
tho anti-tuberculosis workers now
appeal, a mass of many alien com
ponents, but we hope that the en
thusiasm that must come to tho
assistance of the now active workers,
will the stronger and moro direct
because it will be shared by num
bers who have littlo other ground in
common. Tuberculosis, it mny bo
remarked, considers all grounds
common to its activity.
The point is this. All nations of
tho globe, which amount to any
thing, are joining in what may bo
the greatest popular crusade sinco
that limited Christian ono which
had for its purpose the attaining of
the Holy Sepulchre. Is Hawaii to
sharo this spirit, which is the spirit
of generosity and human feeling, or
will it wait until tho other inde
pendent states straighten up from
their tasks and, after a moment's
rest, point the finger of housewifery
at us and say, "Now wo must clean
that place?" I do not think that1
Hawaii will wait, onco the people
hero become outwardly conscious of
what tho crusade against tubercu
losis means to all of us.
Tuberculosis is a peculiarly inti
mate thing. It resides at our door
steps and, when it is not killing
our neighbor's children, it is killing
our own. It does not present that
terrible form which, like plague or
cholera, casts its black shadow across
human minds, striking terror into
tho hearts of men and moving them
to frantic endeavors to rid them
selves of the awful burden. Tuber
culosis comes as silently and
inviduousiy as unconsciousness
an injured man, remains quietly
and goes away as noiseless and, aa
suro as a hearsol "Tho Great'
