Twelve other lives lire hanging In the balance at tho pres ent moment, and there Is no telling how many may succumb to the' rav ages of typhoid fever at Kona, Hawaii. District Inspector Cacaeres, of East Hawaii, was closeted with President Pratt of tho Board of Health this morning, and tho revelations that ho made concerning the outbreak cf typhoid at Kona was startling. First Case. The typhoid made its appearance last month and, ever since then, tho health authorities shave .been tracing up the history of all the cases and try ing to ascertain where tho fever orig inated. Groat success has attended the ef forts of tho Inspectors, and now the typhoid epidemic is well In hand, and the cause of tho disease has been dis covered. Honolulu Women.

Rath, head worker of the Pa latini Settlement, Is expected home on the taxt Wilhelmina, due here on tho SI st Inst., after an extended trip on the mainland. Mr. Rath did not make his expected trip around tho world ns ho had expected to do, being detained on account of the Illness of his wife, who accompanied him. Mrs. Rath will remain in the East for some time to recover her strength after a severe operation in a New York hospital. It is understood that Mr. Rath had gathered a great mass of data con cerning social settlement work In dif ferent parts of the United States, and that-ho returns home with many new ideas which ho hopes 10 be able to DRUNKEN SOLDIERS ST Pay-day disturbances in which sol diers play a prominent part, unfor tunately, appear to bo coming of common "occurrenca In Honolulu. Less than a month ago a disgraceful affair occurred on a Wainlae-bound car, in which several men were more or less badly done up, nnfl last night drunken soldiers with side arms ran amuck in tho Iwllei district and com mitted acts of violence. Tho ffenders, according to Chief of Detectives McDuflle, wore men of tho First United States Field Artil lery, quartered at Schofleld Bar racks. Thoy had been on a "hike," and last night were quartered at Fort Shatter. Yestorday was pay-day and what seems to bo the inevitable hap pened.

All the people who knew her and her movements are In their graves, and tho woman must have been a regular typhoid carrier. Died Suddenly, j According to the details found out by the health inspectors, the Hawaiian woman arrived in Kailua on a Satur day and, after a few days illness, died on tho following Wednesday. A sister who. nursed her then took sick and expired a week later. A brother-in-jlaw who had attended the last patient also died within ton days. Two chil dren, aged respectively one an six J months, contracted the disease and died. Still another man, who helped to nurse tho sick children, got the typhoid and passed away. Then to vary things a little, a visitor from Kaawaloa returned to his home, after a few day's sojourn mauka, and also died.

Among the classes of work, which it is contemplated taking up, aro wood carving, copper working and book binding.

A Japanese man who was going home was set on by four soldiers and beaten over the head so badly with the butt of a revolver that lie had to be removed to the hospital. Later on a marine and a bluejacket were jumped by a number of drunken soldiers witli side-arms ind put out of commission, one of them having to bo transported to his camp. A soldier named J. A.

Fine Job Printing at Star Office. lit ML OI T CT WYMAN SURRENDER HONOLULU WIN Chief Quarantine Ofllcer Ramus this morning received a cablegram from Surgeon-General Wyman reading as follows: "Washington, October G, 1911. "Ramus, Honolulu: ' "No ambiguity, but your interpreta tion correct. WYMAN." This cable is in reply to the one sent to Surgeon-General Wyman by Dr. Ramus, as exclusively reiwrtod in the Star of yesterday. It means that tho BE AT Within a short time there will bo a general shakeup as regards as sessed values of lands and the values set upon property by tho owners. The marked differences, made so apparent on the Bishop street exten sion, has aroused the authorities and there will soon be a big change. An attempt will be made to recon cile the differences between the as sessed and actual value of properties, and it may bo found that the value of lands that are required for condemna tion purposes have, in many in stances, been overestimated. Treasurer Conkling stated this morning that a comparison of values can bo well established now, after the experience relative to the Wul kiki, Fort street and Bishop street condemnations. A better basis to work on will bo established, and the PROPERTY ILL CASES OCGELTIE RE THE CADI OE THE POLICE C In the police court this morning J. E. Johnson, charged with heedlessly driving an automobile, was fined $10 and costs. Johnson is an old offender. Georgo Davis, charged with illicit liquor selling, through Attorney Straus, domanded a jury trial and tho case accordingly went over to the cir cuit court. "Straus has played foxy in this case, having seen all tho evidence of the prosecution and not put on a witness for tho defense. ' Foong Sing, a Chlneso woman, charged with profanity, was fined $4 and costs. George Lowe, tho road overseer, charged with assault and battery on a roadworker named A. G. Doesburg, demanded a jury trial and was com mitted to tho circuit court. The Sonoma-Ventura Enigma Local shipping men, interviewed on the practicability of using Honolulu as a point of transhipment for cargoi'3 originating in the United States or Australia, destined for either-of those countries, declare the story published in tho morning paper regarding th'.s contemplated uso of the Sonoma and Ventura, in conjunction with the Si erra, to bo absurd. It Is stated that tho Sierra already, as a rule, lias all she can attend to, in tho transportation of both passen gers and freight. It would bo impos sible for her to handle, in addition to what she is now handling for Hono lulu, sufficient passengers and cargo to lteep tho Sonoma and Ventura busy botween this port and Sydney. Moreover, tho cost of transhipment of the cargoos, first from a boat to the wharf horc and then from tho wharf to another boat, would bo so great that the freight charges would be prohibitive. If tho Sonoma and Ventura aro to bo used In Australian trade, It would seem that tho most natural plan would bo for thorn to have as termini San Francisco and Sydney, with pos sibly Honolulu a port of call, and In addition to thoso the Oceanic Com pany might see fit to placo tho Siorra also on tho through run. Shipping men seem to bo lying FIGHT activity of tho Civic Federation and other bodies has avnllod and that tho surgeon-general lias succumbed to tho pressure exerted and withdrawn his previous order suspending certain j quarantine regulations respecting ves sols from South American ports. Tho jTessels will now be subject to the Wame, restrictions ns heretofore, and the danger that menaced tho health and prosperity of tho islands has been greatly lessened.
