Tho new water works, which would
largely increase the safety of WalltiMi
and Knlmlul, arc numbered am"tig tho
might have boons.
Ueforo Hilo raises thu cry ot "1 told
you bo," It will .bo better to determine
whether the plague was win led to
Maul In freight shipped from Honolu
lu previous to tin local outbreak.
"New Honolulu" sounds tho k'"y nolo
.of tho scheme of action for rebuilding
tho city. Small blocks, wide rtroets
and good sanitation will settln tho
problem whether the population of
Honolulu U KO.000 or lfiO.000.
Too much 'inphasls cannot bo given
the suggestions made by .Minister
Young for constructing new Honolulu.
In thrso days of piogiejps anil pros
perity, tho half hearted measures of
former days cannot be countenanced.
Thu people of Honolulu ought to
1 Impicsscd by this time tlutt expell
ing thu plague Is no six day fight.
Tho necessity of keeping household
servants lu their quarters and main
taining strict wntch over Asiatics gen
erally was never more pressing than Jt
AID FOR MAUI.
Maul needs a Chinatown lire. The
description given of sanitary condi
tions at Kahulul and Wnlluku, ! the
llulletln's Maul correspondent, indi
cates that the Are brand and treasury
surplus must bu brought Into more
active play In the outside districts.
Sanitary drainage in the Chlneso quar
ter Is apparently an unknown quanti
ty. Add to this, muddy streets, and
water for household and drinking pur
poses obtained from open ditches and
tho situation presented to the people
of thesa towns Is, in many respects
moro serious than in Honolulu.
It seems clearly proved tha. the
Asiatic quarter Is tho center of Infec
tion. None of tho buildings of this
quarter will be seriously missed and
tho population Is not sufllclently nu
merous to make Impossible a transfer
of thu wholo town to a new locality.
Wnlluku ami Kahulul will unquestion
ably welcome a thoroughgoing fire
ami with the assistance of nearby plan
tation forces It ought to be possible to
erect (leteutlou camps to accommodate
refugees lu ft very short lime. Undoi
President Wood's direction It Is safe
to say that no half way measures will
bo considered. Maul will need money
and It may need men from Honolulu.
Thu officials should hold themselves
in readiness to promptly supply money,
men and material In liberal quantities
should thu call bo made.
Tho escapade of Capt. Murray's Ja
panese servant brings out ono of thu
marked difficulties of dealing with
Asiatics and apparently lax methods
of sub-Inspectors. In this Installed the
shortcomings of the Inspectors are
moro apparent thau real, while thu at
titudo of tho Asiatic Is shown to bo
such us to warrant tho Citizens' Com
mltteo declining that Asiatics shall re
main In their living quarters from
seven at night till Ave lu tho morning.
Although every liouso In the city is
visited twlco eneh day by sub-Inspec-toro,
Capt. Murray's servant was at
tho liouso of a "friend" for twenty-four
hours without being located. Ho left
his quarters In direct opposition to the
orders of his employer, nnd although
every Inspector wub on tho watch, tho
in nu was not located until ho returned
to Mr, Murray's liouso voluntarily the
next day. Tho statement Is made that
many Inspectors In making their
rounds find strango Chlneso and Jap
anese In tho district. On being ques

the Inspector system falls short of the
mark In critical Instances. This was
shown in tho death of tho Hoth Chin
ese Bcrvaut. Tho man was living on
premises exemplary In every particu
lar. It Is n foregone conclusion that he
sneaked out of his quarters contrary to
orders and mingled with friends who
had been exposed to the plague.
The only attention given tho Citi
zens' Comlmttcc regulations by 'he
average Asiatic seems to be it general
desire to defeat tho purpose of the
rules and figure out a method wherobj
the regulations can be transgressed
without Its being found out. This con

THE NEW HONOLULU.
Editor Evening llulletln: Ono ot
the most potent factors In tho creating
of the present unsanitary conditions In
Honolulu has been tho large nrcn cov
ered by our so-called "blocks'' without
any dividing streets for tho entrance
of nlr and sunlight. Take Illock 10,
for Instance; from Foit to iNimnuu and
from Hotel to Ilerctanla It has been
crowded with business places and
cheap lodging houses nnd mokeu only
by Chaplain Lane.
With no opportunity to get Into the
heart of the block to call off accumu
lations of refuse It Is small wonder
that the place became n pest hole and it
menace to the rest of the hi slticss
We have nu oppoitunlty now to
remedy ome of tho mistakes of thn
past by opening up new streets through
the jiifected districts, nunel strict
should at once be opened from Hotel to
Ileretanln, and Chaplain l.auu widened
to the usual street width. This much
needed Improvement woulu maku
illotk 1!) one of tho very best business
blocks lu tho city and ten. In a largo
blocks In tho elty nnd tend, In n large
dltlon of Fort street truffle. What wo
want is a "New" Honolulu: smaller
blocks, plenty of wide streets for nlr,
sunlight, drainage nnd traffic, and sani
tary buildings on the new blocks thus
If the authorities do not scixj thu op
portunity now lu their grasp to open
up these blocks It will bo llttlo short
of criminal for In a few years the en
tire area will again bo built over with
crowded stores nnd dwellings.
In tho proposed extension of llethel
street It should bo remembered that
the contemplated street improvement
by the last Legislature Included the
widening of lietlul street from Mer
chant to Hotel, thus removing a lot of
insanitary shacks from the business
center of town and paving tho wny for
tho erection of modern business edifi
ces. It Is safe to say that flio buslncsi
community Is a unit In fnvor of thn ex
tension of new streets through all of
tho burnt or Infected districts. Tho In
crease In taxablo values alono would
shortly pay for al. damages resulting
from condemnation of land or Im
provements made necessary by tho
opening of new streets. There Is an
object lesson to this effect In tho flno
dwellings on new Vineyard street from
which tho Government Is deriving a
handsome revenue In water rates and
taxes, not to mention, what Is of great
er value to any community, improved

Mud at Wnlluku.
Walluku, Feb. 9. For muddy and
slippery sldownlks, Walluku town
takes tho cuke. In somo places mud Is
nearly six inches deep, and ns only
Main and Market streets nro provided
with suitable sidewalks, thn residents
of tho other sldo streets liovo to wndo
In the mud nnklo deep in' order to
reach their respective places of busi
ness. Whllo tho general condition of
tho streets at tho pre3ont tlmo Is
greatly deplored by everybody, especi
ally at u tlmo when fever Is provaleut
everywhere, tho authorities uro said to
be uuablo to meet tho occasion for lack
of money. On Market and Vlnoyaid
streets It is difficult to reach tho oppos
