a bloody f ree'fighf on Saturday evehlng.
The participants were employes of the

as well were used, and before the en

badly injured. That there were no se

The dispute appears to have originat

on each aide, according to the stories
of eye witnesses? and they went at one

Throe Deaths From the Pestilence on
Sunday The Mortuary Record Sus
picious Cases That Were Investigated
The pestilence took a seemingly for
ward movement Saturday afternoon
which determined the Board of Health
to take the action that resulted In the
burning of the buildings on Nuuanu
street yesterday and on Maunakea
The situation today is shown by the
diagnoses and determinations of the
Board of Health In the cases of sickness
and deaths Investigated.
Saturday afternoon a case was re
ported at Smith and Pauahi streets.
The patient was removed to the Chi
nese hospital and died Sunday. The
plague death roll since the last publica
tion In The Star Is ns follows:
Kon War, Chinese, male, 40 years of
age, Smith and Pauahi streets, removed
to Chinese hospital, where he died.
Ah Pow, Chinese, male, 24 years or
age, Nuuanu street In one of the build
Quan You Quan, Chinese, male, 25
years of age, died In Kapuukolo.
Wong Hlng, Chinese, male, 37 years of
age, at the Sal Sang restaurant on
Maunakea street near No. 3 fire house,
attended by Dr. Howard.
Chinese, unknown, about 2d. found
dead In the swamp at Iwllel; believed to
own a wash house there: autopsy not
yet held but Dr. Garvin believes It is an
undoubted case or plague.
The case of the Chinese fount! at iwl
lei this morning Is very peculiar. One
of the military guards found the man
in the swamp, crouched down in a Jap
anese position with his head on tne
ground. The guard reported tne mat
ter at once and Dr. Garvin was sent
out. When he arrived the man was
dead. Every Chinese in the neighbor
hood denied knowledge of the man or
of his name. It is thought that he is the
proprietor of one or the wasn nouses
out there. An autopsy will be held,
though Dr. Garvin has little doubt that
it (s a case of plague.

Coroner's Verdict in the Case of Young
The coroner's jury in the case of J.
Borges accidentally shot by Jacinto
Banavitz on Saturday brought In a ver
dict of accidental death. While the evi
dence clearly justitled this verdict and
in fact permuted no other, to leave no
doubt that full Investigation could clear
up, Deputy Marshal Chllllngworth made
a charge or manslaughter against -Banavitz.
This will be heard In the Dis
trict Court. Meanwhile Banavitz was
released on his own recognizance.
The testimony showed that Banavitz
was followed by a crowd of boys and
that he had told them not to follow him.
Later the gun was accidentally dis
charged, killing the little Borges boy.
Scattering shots struck some of the oth
er boys, but even these testified that It
was their own fault and that Banavitz
was not to blame.
PASTIME IN QUARANTINE:
The people Immured in the quaran

at the same time to celebrate the New
Year by firing off bombs and Are crack

sounded over In the quarantine district
as though the British and Boer armies
had got at each other In earnest. The
police made a score or more of arrests
for firing fire crackers In the streets,
but the military guards would not al
low them to take their prisoners to the
police station. Marshal Brown there
upon gave orders to release them all
saying he did not see that they could do

No Clue Yet to the Murderer Motive
for the Deed Three Similar Crimes
Within a Month.
PAIA. Maul. December SO, Huelo
has again been the scene of a. fatal
cutting affray. Yesterday morning the
dead body of a Japanese, Ogata by
name, was found in the Spreckelsvllle
dltcn house at llonopu, occupied by
Surveyor Vander Nalllen, when work
ing on the ditch out that way. Only two
weeks ago Mr. vander Nalllen lost a
Japanese cook through the little brown
man being arrested for cutting a native
there, and now this one is found dead
in the same house. Ogata had been
alone on the premises for the past few
days, and so It Is not known just when
the deed was committed, but most prob
ably during Wednesday, or Wednesday
night, the appearance or the body indi
cating that conclusion. The dead man's
throat Is cut. and there are many cuts
and lacerations about the head, indicat
ing without doubt that It was murder
and not suicide. Sheriff Baldwin and
Deputy Sheriff King are at present on
the ground looking for some clew and
evidence, but as yet have been able to
discover none. No one has been fouhd
yet. who can throw any light upon It,
so the Identity and whereabout of the
murderer Is a mystery. Circumstances
Indicate though that It was most likely
done by one or more Japanese. The
dead man Ogata, had been a roving
character, and at different times had
acted as a spy and Informer for tne
police, and was very unpopular amongst
the Japanese here, which fact might
sucgest a motive for the crime. Sev
eral months ago the deceased got Into
some trouble at Klhel: and was wanted
by the police department, but kept out
or their way.
A Coroner's Jury will be summoned
and every step possible taken to dis
cover the guilty party.
This is the third cutting affair with
in the month, the other two not result
ing fatally, and all within five miles of

for 2200 People.
The entire block In Chinatown bord

In the block are the Bishon Estnte. Sll-

estate. The first two named own most

by the tenants, they being lessees ot

The Board has taken up this block ns

to provide accommodations In a new
quarantined district for the people re
moved. When this block Is disposed or
the next one to It will be treated In like
manner. Alleyways will be laid out and
rebuilding will be under regulations of
the Board or Health.
The Board will not be called upon to
pay for "any property condemned for
sanitary reasons. Property destroyed
by accident, however, will have to be
paid, for, and there will likely be a grent

I say that the Board of Health Is not
afraid of any owner of property in the
Hawaiian Islands, and If a building ot

be condemned and destroyed, no mat
ter whom It hits or hurts. Anyway, the
Bishop Estate and some other holders

Tre conclusion to condemn the notori
ous Paunhi street block was reached at
a special meeting of 'the Board or
Health held Saturday night. President
Cooper reported on nn Inspection of tne
block made during the afternoon. Then
the legnl status of the Board In the
matter was discussed. In addition to
the condemnation proceedings the
Board decided that In all cases of
plague the patient should be removed
at once to the pest hospital, persons In
the house sent to Isolnted quarantine,
house burned, and such other precau
tions taken as may be deemed neces
sary. The matter of an assistant to Mr.
Reynolds, to tnke charge of the work of

no action was taken.
It wns voted to condemn the military

One of tho Daring Reformers Who Had
Almost Overturned the Medievalism
of the Chinese Empire.
Leung Chi-tso who with Kwang Yu
Wet was one of the most prominent
leaders of the reform party In China, Is
In Honolulu. He arrived yesterday
from Y'okohama by the Hong Kong
Leung Chi-tso is one of the thirty re
form leaders who for about three
months, something more than a year
ago, through their Influence with the
Chinese Emperor, secured that start
ling series of reform edicts which were
Intended to revolutionize the ancient
governmental, educational and Indus
trial systems of the Chinese Empire.
He Is one of the thirty leaders, who,
when the Empress Dowager made her
Napoleonic coup nnd seized the reins
of empire, paid for their daring efforts
at reform with their heads, their lib
erty or their fatherland. He was the
close friend and companion of Kwang
Y'u Wei whose romantic and almost mi
raculous escape from the reactionary
element, which came into power with
the Empress' coup, was written about
In newspapers and magazines from one
end of the world to the other.
Leung Chi-tso, like most of the other
reformers Is a young man who made
his way through the Chinese education
al system of competitive examinations
to the degree of Master of Arts and the
rank and title of Private Adviser to the
Empress. His work for the reform
movement began with the editorship of
tne bee Jlu l'ao, or "Chinese Prog
ress" published at Shanghai, and de
voted to the reform propaganda. With
the accession of the Emperor to the re
form movement Leung Chi-tso was
called to Peking nnd took an active part
In formuatlng the edicts and Inaugurat
ing the measures of the brief reform pe
riod preceding the Empress' return to
active administration of power. When
the reaction came and with it the san
guinary acts which sent some of the
best men ot China to the block, others
Into exile and still others Into prison,
Leung Chi-tso succeeded in escaping to
Yokohama. Despairing of opportunity
to return to China he beenme naturaliz
ed as a subject of the Emperor of Jap
an. He has adopted the Japanese meth
od of wearing his hnlr and dresses In
the,,puropenn style as that style Is In
vogue In Japan. In fact he looks very
piuch like a Japanese of the better
qlass nnd might readily he mistaken for
one. Ills appearance now Is in marked
contrast with his nppearance n yvr
ago as shown by his photographs when
he appeared In Mandarin dress with
queue nnd shaved hea1.
As a Japanese subject he has ndoDted
the Japanese name. Kasuabaln. He Is
now the editor of the "Ching Yee Pao"
nr "Chinese Dlsrusslon" published nt
Y'okohama and devoted to the effort or
I rejuvenating China. He Is now on a
. tour of the Chinese colonies throughout
I th" world in the effort of unifying and
, solidifying the various reform societies

one movement for the advancement of
China. He expects to remain here about
a month and will then go to snn i ran
Cisco. New York and Washington. He
brings with him letters of Introduction
nnd recommendation to the Japanese
Consul General from Count Okuma, for
mer Japanese Minister of Foreign Af
fairs and from Count Knto, former
Japanese Minister to England. He wns
received yesterday by the Japanese
Vice Consul nnd will be received to
morrow bv the Consul General.
"The hone and objects of tho reform
party" said Leung Chi-tso, "are to
awaken the Chinese people from thPlr
medieval sleep: to creat a national and
patriotic spirit among them: to bring
them Into touch with the progress or
the world and with European civiliza
tion. We want to reform tho educa
tional system which Is now In the
chains of ancient custom and obsolete
learning nnd Introduce modern science
and occidental learning. We Wnnt to
reform the government and Introduce
honesty and efilclncey. We want to re
form th system of revenue nnd taxa
tion and the methods of disbursing tax
es. We want to bring the Chinese peo
ple up to the plane of their cnpaclty
and abreast ot the world, and maue
China one of the great empires of tne
"The strength of the reform move
ment Is In the provinces nenrest the
Pacific ocean whore the people have
felt the Inlluenco of western civiliza
tion nnd seen Its progressive character.
In proportion ns provinces are distant
from this lnlluence the reform move
ment Is weak. There is hope for China;
there Is hope for the Chinese people.
China Is a slumbering giant which
needs only to be awakened to tnke Its
part In the gront deeds nnd In tho prog
ress of these modern times."
Leung Chi-tso hns been warmly greet
ed by scores of his compatriots resi
dent here who share his hopes nnd his
polltlcnl views. He Is a guest at the
Arlington Hotel where his room Is a
Mecca for the reform element of the
local Chinese colony.
