' . signs Pointing to a further decline. To- . fV1'' tal stock or all Kinds of conees in urst This la what the Senate Commission rccommeiuls regarding the leper settle ment on Moloknl condensed from its more voluminous report. The control and manngement of the leper settlement on the Island of Molo kal the committee thinks should bo transferred from the local territorial government to the government of the United States, to be In - immediate charge of the marine hospital service. The committee believes the Island of Molokai Is In every respect most ad mirably adapted as a location for a na tional leprosaria, to which might be transferred all lepers now In the United States. Notwithstanding the largo expense charged up each year to the territorial government In connection with the care of tliti unfortunate people, the principal territorial olllcials, Including the gover nor, secretary of state, board of health attorney general, and In fact the heads of every one of the departments, were insistent upon retaining the manage ment and control of the leper settle ment by the Territory. The people of the islands hold different views on The leper question to what are evidently entertained by the members of the sub committee and apparently much of the opposition to the transfer comes from the fact that a change of administra tion Is not desired. Acordlng to the testimony before the committee, one out of about every 180 of the whole population of the Hawai ian Islands is today afflicted with le prosy and confined at the leper settle ment. It Is believed, however, that mere are very many hundred more lepers In the Islands than are now at the settlement, perhaps brine nir the i average to one leper to every 100 of the population. This Is the growth of cognized case of the disease In the Islands was reported in 1830. There are today nearly 1,000 known lepers In the Territory. There are In the United States 278 lepers most of them at large who should, In the opinion of the com mittee, be sent to the leper colony. The, United States should be admon ishediby the history- of other nations, says ;lhe committee, and be prompted to take Immediate and decisive steps to stay the progress of and eradicate this loathsome disease in the Territory of Hawaii. The very highest and most advanced scientific skill at no matter wnat cost, should be invoked without this disease, and the remedy, if any, to , be had for Its cure. Whllp tho npn pie and local government of Hawaii In the way of segregation and care of the lepers, the committee believes a much greater degree of sanitary precaution nnd scientific treatment should be em ployed than has been or possibly can be. by the local government. The committee was somewhat sur prised to find that under existing man agement of the leper settlement. Indis criminate legitimate and Illegitimate cohabitation is permitted in the settle ment, Marriages are suffered to be celebrated between leprous men and women, regardless of their physical condition. Children are born In the settlement of leprous unions, and as a result of concubinage; nnd strange as it iimy appear, tne leading officials seem to regard all this not onlv n narmieci. ! ble but protest vigorously against system of segregation that would pre eiiL ii. THE SKUNK WON. Caused a $10,000 Fine and Was Still in Business, The stock In Dana Lamite's dry goods store in the Ionic block at East- nuuipton was almost entirely destroy- isiaerible dimTw ir i . I m. damage was done to the less in the Manchester block, adjoin ing, was damaged by smoke and wa ter, and the loss i hundred dollars. The fire started in one of the show windows, and within a few minutes the entire front was fu riously 'blazing. It was said of the damage caused by the fire that "a skunk caused all that loss," and while the words were being spoken the odor of a skunk was strongly perceptible above that of the smoke still Issuing from the building. The people in the Lamite store and the other stores near by have been much annoyed by a sKunk that has apparently made its nome at tne rear of Shop row. Mr. Lamite intended to counteract the odor by burning incense in the form commonly known as Joss sticks. He started to light one of the stinks in the show window, when some one In the, aiuf-e caneu to mm. lie turned to re ply, and In so doing brought the light ed match or the stick In contact with some of the window furnishings. The contents of the window blazed up In an instant and the store filled with smoke so rapidly that the clerks had none too much time to rush downstairs and leave the building by the basement door ih the rear. 'Mrs. Lamite became confused by the smoke, and was car ried out by her husband. There was some delay In ringing the fire alarm, but It was only a few min utes after the bell began ringing be fore there was a stream of water di rected upon the blaze. The lire made rapid headway until the arrival of the firemen, and the wood cornice and board celling furnished material for a fierce blaze that seemed to threaten the entire block. 'Nearly everything In the store was Inflammable, but fortun ately the partition wall was of brlclt, nnd the fire was confined to the store. The firemen got the blaze under con trol In a remarkable short time, but the fire had extended well back into the store, and the stock and fixtures will probably be reckoned a complete loss. The loss on the block was estim ated by some as high as $5000. nnd the size of this loss will depend on the damage done to the timbers of the building. The block Is owned by the John Mayher CHtate. Mr. Lamite an nounced shortly after the lire broke out that there was $1000 In a bag on a table at the rear of the store. Phil. Ip Mayher offered $100 to any one who would get It, but no one responded. The money was recovered after the fire was extinguished. Springfield Repub lican. Wnnt ads In the Star bring quick re sults..

Captain (Henderson of the 'British ship Star of Bengal, now at Honolulu, In a report to the hydrographlc ofllce here, said that on his voyage to the island port from Newcastle his vessel passed close to an unchartered reef in latitude 32.27 south, and longitude 179.1 west.

There has been considerable contro versy of late years as to which country should be conceded the honor of print ing the first regular newspaper. Claims have been successively put forward for Italy, France, Germany, England and Holland, and all with some degree of plausibility, but It appears from recent researches that neither one of these Is entitled to the distinction, nnd that precedence should be given to Belgium. It has been established by the anti quaries that a certain Abraham Ver hoeven, of Antwerp, obtained In 1003 from the Archduke and Duchess Albert and Isabelle the privilege of printing a news sheet. 'As the first German paper appeared In 1615 at Frankfort, the first Dutch paper in 1017, the first English paper the Weekly Gazette, In lG22 and the first French paper In 1631, lt would seem that Antwerp's claims have some foundation, and that the Belgian city initiated what has become one of the most influential factors In modern life and progress On the strength of this It Is proposed to hold a great tercentenary celebration in Antwerp some time during the year 1903. It would be interesting to com pare tlie primitive efforts of the Jour nalist of 1603 with the immense sheets of news which the world calls for to day. Three hundred years ago news travelled but slowly, and each com munity wns, In a sense, Isolated. But today If some potentate of Central Afri ca condescends to sneeze the world wants to know Just what caused the tltlllatlon in the regal nostrils, and wants minute particulars at that.

They are mild and Inoffensive, with hardly enough spirit between them to declare : l nn opinion, such Is their fear of their royal parent.
