STAND HY THE LEADERS.
There Is no discounting the serious
situation presented bv the outbreak of the
bubonic rtl.igue In Honolulu, but It be
hooves the public to accept the situation
will all the calm juJRement that can be
mustered. Next to the plague Itself a
general stampede causeJ by fear Is a danger
that should be averted If possible. The
conditions cannot be treated with indif
ference by any citizen high or low. What
Is demanded Is calm, positive, prompt
action and hearty co-operation with the
authorities having the matter In hand
The people of tills city know how to get
together and enlist their efforts unhesita
tingly In working for the public wellfare'
The cholera experience, though unpleas
ant, taught Honolulu what it can do and
Wi believe the authorities and tbc people
can and will fight the black plague with
the samt active methods and it Is reason
able to believe with the same success.
Until the last sign of danger Is w iped out
citizens of Honolulu will resolve them
selves Into a committee of the whole and
be prompt to co-operate with and assist,
by every means in their power, the officers
on whose shoulders rests the serious res
ponsibility of directing the important
wotk now In hand. The authorities
have acted promptly and forcefully. Let
the people co-operate.
HIGHER PRICE OP MEAT.
Events at homo and abroad, present
and future nro conspiring to cnuso Ho
nolulu householders to give their meat
hill nioro Intimate attention than It
linn received heretofore.
The forces at work to bring nbout
this not altogether pleasant state of
affairs are: First, our Increased pop
ulation; second, l eduction of the areas
devoted to cattlo raising by reason of
tho development of other Industries;
third, the steadily advancing price of
beef in the states as n result of tho
universal prosperity; fourth, tho Im
port duty on Australian meats, that
will becomo nu influential factor as
soon as Congress extends tho tariff
Tho tlmo has passed when Honolulu
ran depend wholly on Island raised
Block to supply the retail market. The
ranch nreas nro reduced while tho de
mand Is steadily -Increasing. Tho de
velopment of many agricultural enter
prises on the other Islands has not
only cut In on slock raising lands, but
him Increased the market for beef. Al
ready tho cattlo raisers of Hawaii nro
talking of Joining forces for tho better
supply of llllo and tho island general
ly. A rise In price to tho customer
Is a probablo result, but the important
part to Honolulu Is that Hawaii will
ho first supplied and Honolulu gets
what Is left over. With u steadily In
creasing population on nil tho Islands,
local demands will reecho Increasing
nttcntlon. Asldo from homo consump
tion Honolulu docs no smnll business
In supplying trnns-1'aclflc liners and
tho nhlps of tho army and navy.
Two present and futuro features of
tho meat trado aro readily apparent,
stoc krnlslng In the Inlands is a prod'
islng sourco of profit and our retail
market will bo practically controlled
hy the same Influences now nt woik in
tno meat market of tho United States.
Failure to supply tho homo demand
places us practically nt the mercy of
tho American market, from which tho
amount necessary to mako up tho
shortage must bo drawn. Theso prices
liavo nn upward trend, it Is likely the
people will pay tho prlco of Increased
prosperity without much grumbling,
provided tho local prosperity con
Itnucs. In ono respect tho people will
receive nn ndvnnco in prlco as tidings
of joy, If It results in tho local meat
monopoly employing experienced
butchers "im its night ns woll as day
force. Tho most delicious Joint that
over Mzzlcd In tho pan ran be ruined
by n careless native or an Ignorant
CHIEF JUSTICE'S RESIGNATION

Intended, If not tho actual withdrawal
of tho Chief Justlco 1s now receiving
tnc serious thought of President Dolo
nnd his Cabinet. Doubtless tho prob

tho right to make an appointment to
such nn Important position. A ques
tion that might well cause worry and
Is best nliswored by "discretion Is the
better part of valor." Mcanwhllo the
public is supposed to sit quietly by nnd
watch the Executive twiddle Its thumbs
nnd ponder over how It enn get ahead
of tho people.
If Mr. Dolo anticipates the with

HARPER'S NEW EDITOR.
John Keudilck Dangs, who has Just
succeeded Henry Loomls nelson as
editor of Harper's Weekly, has for
several years been n prominent flguro
In American literature. Bangs has the
mournful look of nn tindertnkcr, but
there .are few living writers who aro
so regularly amusing and whoso fun
comes with so llttlo nppatent effort,
lie excels In tbo stylo of humor which
Dr. Holmes Introduced In his famous
"Autocrat," nnd his "Coffeo nnd Rep
artee," "Tho ldlot" nnd "Three Weeks
in Politics" may bo recommended ns a
sure cure for the blues. Tho man or
worfian who can read them nnd resist
t-clr fun must bo of the Scotch strain
Hint Is Impervious to a Joke. Tho last
ot the three Is one of tho most amusing
skits on American political methods
that has over been written, nnd what
makes It moro enjoyable Is Its free
dom from bitterness. Mr. Pangs ran
for Mayor of YonkerB, N. Y tho city
on tho Hudson which Is his home, nnd
this book chronicles his experience
with "do push" nnd other factors of
practical politics. His other books
that aro specially amusing for their
broad farco aro "Tho Illcyclers" nnd "A
Houseboat on tho Styx." Tho latter,
If one enn pardon Its flagrant Irrever
ence for famous names, will bo found
full of tho keenest wit nnd tho most
unctuous humor. Mr. Pangs was also
ono of tho foundeis of Life. He was
born In New York 37 years ago.
Artesian Well Pipe.
Ono of the scarcest ni tides ot mer
chandise In demand hero Just now Is
nrteslan well pipe or casing. It Is
known that there Is somo 15,000 feet
ot It aboard Bhlps in tho harbor, but
to get It ashoro and transferred Is nn
otlier question, quite. Tho pressuro
was somewhnt relieved this morning
wnen a vessel from New York went
alongside tho Oahu Hallway wharf
and It was found that there was 2,000
feet of thu desired articles In tho hold.
There wns a rush for tho pipe and
Senator McCundless was seen going
down Into tho depths of tho cargo with
his coat off. Ho performed Btevcdore
labor with the result that ho secured
some pipe for Immediate uso at Ewa.
