Tho good work of the Hoys' Brigade
is being steadily pushed ahead by tho

of tho clubroom nt Knumaknplll was
the first lmportnnt step." Now comes
nnothcr that is still more important
tho establishment of an Industrial De

pose is now drawing to a completion.
In n few days tho roof will bo shingled,
painting attended to nnd furnishings

caso of tho plaguo on Maunokea

been sent to tho Kakanko hospital.

This Is n Jnpnneso woman. Dr.

tho enso will bo closely watched.
Committee Meeting.
At 9 o'cloc kthls morning, members
of tho commltteo of citizens appointed
by tho Board of Health to look Into tho
matter of a slto for tho proposed quar
antine barracks met lu tho olllco of
Minister Young, chairman of tho com
mittee, nnd there considered a general
plan submitted by tho Minister him
self. Only thrco of four of tho mem
bors wcro present on account of tho
busy tlmo at their offices that always
comes with tho beginning of a new
year. Minister Young's plan Is to build two
rows of houses back to back with a
spaco between tho rowo sufficient for a
largo covered flume. Over this ilumo
will bo tho water closets, bath nnd
washrooms, with direct communica
tion with tho flume. Minister Young
explained his idea as follows:
"The flume la tho main part to bo
considered. Tho nrrnngement of tho
houses Is but nn easy matter. Tho
ilumo will bo flushed with water con
tinually from a well or tho government
watcrworksaudnll tho refuse nnd dirty
wnter must empty Into It and bo car
ried out to sea. In this way not a bit
of Ilith will bo retained for tho Bhortest
spaco of time, on tho premises.
"Tho houses in rows and back to
hack must bo far enough apart to ad
mit of easy access and to mako possible
a qunrantlno within a quarantine
should cases of plaguo break out lu tho
midst of tuo quarantined people."
Upon bringing up the question of tho
Ilumo Dr. Herbert stated that the saf
est way would bo to havo this covered.
Whllo tlicro was not so much danger
from nn uncovered flumo during tho
oxlstonco of tho plaguo, still tho quar
antine barracks might bo used In tho
future for tho Isolation of pcoplo from
districts Infected with such a disease
ns cholera. Under such circumstances
an uncovered flumo would bo very dan
gerous. During tho conference of tho com
mltteo Judgo Wilcox, upon whoso land
It was proposed to put up tho quaran
tine bnrracks, appeared on tbo scene
and answered various questions put to
him. Then Government Surveyor Wall
was sent for and, together ylth him
tho members of tho commltteo went
out to Kallhl to mako Investigations.
Tho commltteo returned to town
shortly beforo noon, after having In
vestigated various sites in Kallhl and
Iwllet. Judgo Wilcox fltnally took the
members to that portion of the Bishop
Estato which Is known as Walakamllo
In the Kapalama district on the other
sld of Iwilcl. As soon as Minister
Young laid his eyes on this placo ho
decided that It was Just what was bo
Ing looked for.
This placo Is easy of access and will
Involve comparatively llttlo work In
its arrangement for a nuarantlno bar
racks. It Is below1 what Is known as
Walpllopllo and can bo reached by tho
road that runs from tho tramcar sta
bles to tho sea. A two-Inch pipe could
easily bo put in from tho government
wells and run down to tho proposed
buildings, a distance of something less
than a mile. So much for wator for
drinking and washing purposes.
Between thrco and four hundred feet
from tho shore Is deep water, A gas
engine could very easily bo installed so
that water could bo pumped In from
tho sea nnd used to flush tho flumo In
to which all rcfuso will bo dumped.
This would simplify matters greatly,
centering tho cost for flushing purposes
In a small amount of piping nnd a gas
engine to furnish power to run In the
salt water.
Minister Young with membors of the
commltteo will mako up n report and
will present It to tho Board of Health
ns soon as possible. This may bo to
night. Tlio grounds chosen by tho commlt
teo thlB morning aro very largo and, If
necessary, thirty ucrcs could bo ob
tained. Tho now lino of tho railway
runs near by nnd tho whole place Is
most convenient.
Scattering of CIiIiichc.
Thero was a general exodus of Chln
eso from block 10 in Chinatown yes-
tprdnv nftnrnnnn tmmn n,.n ii..in
------ ..uw.., wu.KW WUV 111., ,,
spread in that locality the report that
mo uoaru oi neaitu was contemplating
an Immediate destruction of the whole
tdnm llV flrn. Pfivctnlnna rm.1 nnnn.n
of the Board of Health hurried to tho
scene nnu assuaged as fnr as possible,
the excitement of tho Chinese, but by
that tlmo most of tho residents of the
block had scattered to various parts of
Chinatown carrying with them their
goods nnd chattols.
Thero Is considerable feeling against
the person who spread tho alarming
report, Binco it has been stated that It
was done by way of a joke.
Chinese Frightened.
Chinese In various parts of tho city
outsldo tho Infected district havo given
their employers notlco today that they
Intend going back Into Chinatown with
their wives and families as they under
stand tho Board of Health Intends to
burn tho wholo of Chinatown. They
cannot be mado to sco that the matter
Is only being discussed and even If
such nn extreme measure is found to bo
neppftrmrv fnr tlin iirntnntlnn fit tlm
city, tho Board of Health will give am-
imu iiuiice.
MnMng Antltoxlnc.
Dr. Hoffman, government bacterio
logist, Is Just now busy with tho work
of preparing nntltoxlni', but nothing
much can be said about this Just now
as It Is more In tho lino of an experi
ment than an ntssurrcd thing. When
tho work has boon completed trials by
wny of testing tho efficacy of tho autl
toxlhVwIll bo made. If found to oper
ate successfully it will bo used for the.
purposo of vaccnatlng persons who
havo been lu Infected premises.
Doctors Threatened.
Certain Chinese In tho Infected dis
tricts havo threatened doctors nnd
members of tho Board of Health with
death. This has been dono by posters
In Chinatown. Ono of tho Board phy
sicians was sent to a placo In China
town yesterday on a trip of investiga
tion. As ho was coming out ho found
himself surrounded by n lot of wicked
looking Chinese. Fortunately ho hap
pened to hnvo an Influential Chinese
merchant with him. Tho latter wild:
"Hold on doctor. I think trouble. You
lot mo go first. This man wild two
words lu Chinese, not understood by
tho doctor, nnd the Chinaman scamper
ed awny like a lot ot rabbits,
To Burn Hlock 10.
Scon in regard to Block 10 In tho In
fected district. Chinatown, President
Cooper of tho Board of Health said this
morning: "Yes, Block 10, with tho
exception ot four or flvo brick build
ings, will bo burned, but arrangements
ns to tlmo nnd disposition of people
and goods havo not been decided on
yet. I'ntll then, nothing will bo done.
Found nntl Lost.
A Chinaman wns found sick in
Chinatown a couplo of days ago and
taken to military headquarters for In
vestigation. Through somo mlstnko ho
was liberated. The fellow then went
Into hiding nnd was not found until
yesterday. Ho was discovered by Win,
Crawford who told him to report at
once to military headquarters, think
ing tno matter was well known there.
The Chinaman appeared on tho scene.
asked if ho was wanted, was told no
and immediately disappeared again.
Now another search for him Is being
made.

Merchants report a cry good month.
Holiday trado was generally good un

Tho losses in Chinatown have been
great, and certainly business houses
there arc entitled to sympathy.
Holiday trado gavo great promise,
nnd prospects seemed better thnn pre

Trade has fallen oft from 40 to CO per

In somo lines dally receipts do not
meet dally expenses with good houses.
Flvo large "wind Jammers' 'have ar
rived with full cargoes, slnco our last
circular. '
Unsatisfactory trade with other Isl
ands. Furniture trado has suffered, owing
to delay In securing goods.

Considerable activity Is reported by
thoso handling sporting goods.
Sufficient money out of tho surplus
should bo appropriated to pro.vldo Ho
nolulu with permanent sanitation

gious diseases, that cost hundreds of
lives nro likely to appear again. Now
Is the time to strike for permanent Im

There Is no reasou for blues In our

ATHENIANS ROUGH TRH.
The transport Athenian that arrived
fom Manila yesterday, passed through
pretty much the same experience ns
did tho Hongkong Marti. Hough
weather was encountered nearly all tlio
way, tho storm causing tho Athenian
to lay to for two dnys, and to run to
tho south for one day more in tho hope
of running out the gale. Tho sens
were very high nnd dashed over the
snip with terrific force. Lower parts,
made of glass nearly an Inch thick,
wcro smashed to bits. Hugo seas
broko over tho stern, carrying tiwoy
the wheel box, tearing up tho two iron
binnacle stands that were bolted to tin
deck nnd Ailing the upper deck whom
there aro a large number of stalls, with
water. If the Btalls had not been ex
traordinarily strong and woll built,
they would havo been carried away en
tirely. An idea of how high the waves wcro
that struck tho ship can bo gained
when ono realizes that tho small boats
In their davits, twcnty-Blx feet nbove
tho water, wcro continually full of wa
ter nnd tho Inner funnel of tho smoko
stack was broken away from its fasten
ings. Tho officers ot the ship declare
It to havo been the worst storm, out
sldo of a typhoon, that they hnvo over
experienced.
Tho Athenian hauled alongsfdo the
Pacific Mall wharf this morning. She
will remain In port nbout ten dnys be
fore returning to Manila with a cargo
of mules.
