THE DISEASE REAPPEARS AFTER
Precautions Taken Hero with the
SteamBhlp China Suspicious Case
Put Ashore at Toklo.
Plague has reappeared In Kobe, Japan.
,nnd that city Is again carrying out the
policy of cleaning up which was the
fashion last year. It is just a year
since the disease broke out In Kobe,
but It was thought to'have been stamp
ed out.'As no caBes were reported for
several months. On the 14th of last
month a case was found, the patient
dylncon the 17th.
The quarantine officers here took the
greatest precautions this morning with
the steamship cnina. a special warn
ing against her had been received on
account of a sick Chinese passenger
whom she left behind at Toklo and Dr.
Jlmasse made a careful separate exa
mination -of each of the steerage pas
sengers before he allowed the steamer
to enter the harbor.
The man who was 111 on the steamer
was taken on at Yokohama. He deve
loped symptoms of bubonic plague, but
the disease If plague It was, had not
progressed far enough for a certain
diagnosis, when the passenger was put
ashore at tokio.
The authorities at Toklo held the
China for two days and did the usual
.fumigating. On the trip here no other
suspicious cases appeared, and the
steamshln has a clear bill o' health.
She will be closely watched at San
Francisco, however, and Dr. Klnyoun
will probably examine all the Asiatic
passengers as carefully as did Dr.
The news that plague had- reappeared
In Kobe' was brought here by the China

October was In the same part of the
city as the first case of last year. House

LETTER TO COMMISSIONER
Favored a Republic and Opposed the
Restoration of the Monarchy In April,
1893 Annexation Club.
The Republicans have dup up an
other chapter of Robert W. Wilcox's
record and are publishing it as a cam
paign document. It is a letter to Com
missioner Blount in which he said he
favored a renublio and opposed the res
toration of the monarchy; also Wilcox's
signature to "list No. 1" of the Annex
ation Club's roll of membership.
The letter to Blount Is published in
Blount's report, Voh 2, page 1870 and is
"Honolulu, Hawaiian Islands,
"April 6, 1893.

Fred. M. Somers to the San Francisco
Examiner, under date of May 4, 1892,
and also an extract from the Illustrated
American of December 26, 1891, and
some extracts from the P. C. Advertiser
of Honolulu of the month of May, 1892.
In the main these statements are cor
rect. 'My chief object was to establish a

"If annexation should be rejected by
your Congress, which I hope not, 1 still
believe that a Republic with the closest
possible relations, commercial and
otherwise, with the United States would
be the best for Hawaii.
"The re-establishment of Monarchy,
In my humble opinion, ought not to be
considered for a moment.
"Most respectfully yours,
"ROBERT W. WILCOX."
Wilcox's Annexation club pledge and
signature as found on the original "list
No. 1" Is as follows:
"For the purpose of supporting the
Provisional Government, and to assist
as far as is In our power in securing
the Annexation of these Islands wun
the United States of America, We, the
undersigned, agree to unite in the for

that object in view.

Governor Dole and council have de
cided upon an extra number of booths
In the big precincts for the election to
morrow to accommodate all the voters.
This arrangement Is satisfactory to the
leaders of the three parties, and in fact
seems to them the easiest way out of
the difficulty. Mr. Cooper's pian to
have the polls keep open after 5 o'clock,
where necessary, was abandoned for
the reason that there was no guarantee
that there would be no contests.
Acting upon orders of the Governor
and Secretary Cooper, Mr. Rowell Is
engaged today In putting in the extra
booths. The second ana louriu pre
cincts of the Fourth district are to have
three extra booths each, giving them
six each. The first and fifth precincts
of the same district will have two each,

Fifth district the seventh precinct will

lead of George Makham and bolted the

It Is believed that there will be, before
tomorrow mornln- a land-slide from
Wilcox into the two other parties.

The China struck the typhoon -on
September 27, after leaving Yokohama
for Kobe. She was close to land and.
there was nothing for It but to head the
vessel off, and she plowed her way in
to the center of the terrible storm.'
There was a struggle of about seven
hours, during which Captain Seabury
spent one of the worst times on the
ble to stay on deck, for the seas broke
over with fearful fury.
The strength of the seas was shown
by the binding of the Iron rails on the
forward deck. These rails were simply,
bent over by the storm, as If they had
been so much wire. Other deck railing
was carried away, and all the ventila
tors went off In the storni.
The staterooms on deck were uncom
