This was done ntn meeting held in the old head quarters of the party In Kaahumanu street last night. Tho meeting was tho result of a call sent out by Chairman Johnson of the Fourth District Committee of tho Democratic. party. Just rs soon as Chairman McCarthy had taken his scat and called tho meeting to order, James Sims arose and protested that It was not yet time to act. The action of the other parties should be awaited. L. D. Tlmmons was elected secretary and then the mutter of not taking ac tion until later was again threshed out. Fred Tcrrlll was of the opinion that the Democratic party should be the first in the fight. He was sure that the other two parties would put up candidates and It would not do for tho Democrats to be behind time, tin thereupon nominated Chas. T. Wilder tor tlio place, this nomination was greeted with rounds of applause, Col. McCarthy Bald that It took great devotion to party interests to under take such a task as to run In a Uepub lican stronghold when there would bo but little to gain should the scat be won. However, the party must bo held together and this was tho way to do It, by putting a man In the field and making a fight, even though the chances were against him . Tho nomination was made unanl mous. Committeeman Johnson . sata that there was a little Informality to be, gono through with. There was money needed to pay tho expenses o( filing the papers of the candidate. This work was placed In the hands of I.. D. Tlmmons and tbo meeting adjourned, To Reduce the Army In the Philippines Washington, Feb. 20. Secretary Hoot, In conformity with assurances recently inndo to various committees of Congress, has arranged for a grad ual reduction of tho military force in tho Philippines, to nbout 32,000 men. Orders have been sent to Qcneral Chaffee, commanding tho division of tho Philippine, to arrango to send homo all tho regiments under Mb com' mand that wcro sent to the Islands In Manila, Jan. 29. The following fitD account of the experiences of tho ma rines who made the recent expedition In Samar under Major Waller, receiv ed from a private letter, exceeds in Its horror and pltlfulness anything which has yet been reported from that dark and bloody island. The main facts ot the affair havo been published, but theso details are new. The battalion of the Marine Corps stationed at Ilascy, on tha southern part of tho Island of Samar, oppoalt Tacloban, Leytc, has suffered a serious disaster, losing a number of men, rillci and ammunition. A few days after Christmas Major Waller, in command of tho marines, left Ilascy for a scouting expedition from l.aoang, taking a few days' ra tions. After beating up one of tho small rivers It was decided to push back to Bascy overland. The party pushed out Into the mountains wilt several native guides, who proved trustworthy. It seems that the trail was lost, and the party, after a few ikiys, was out of rations, with little 01 nothing available for tho sustenance of the troops in the wild and barren coun try In which they found themselves. To add to their distress, there was a terrible storm sweeping over tlio Isl and of Samar. A number of the men wcro too badly done up to mnko any attempt to push on without food, and In tho dilemma tho best place that could be found was chosen for n tem porary camp, while tho Major with a part of his command struck out again, manfully determined to reach Ilascy and secure reinforcements at any cost. After the most severe hardships he ar rived In Basoy and led a relief expedi tion to the assistance of the starving troops, who had In tho meantime, after considerable delay, for the relief was delayed longer than they expected, de cided to return over the trail that they knew. Finally part of them got to camp, but in a horrible condition. Nine men are sick In the hospital at Taclo ban, ten aro entirely unaccounted for, as they wcro compelled to drop out ot the column in the wilds of the Jungl and nothing Is known of their fate whether they have died of starvation or fallen Into the hands of the boleros. All who passed through the ordeal will bo unfitted for duty for weeks to come. An Incident current In Catbalogan, it true. Illustrates In a terribly graphic manner tho great straits to which tlio soldiers were reduced. A treacherous guide attacked- ono of tho lieutenants of tho party with a bolo. Tho lieu- i""r,rr: lrr.

Observing this, the Bavago guide -wrenched the revolver from his band and in turn tried to shoot tho lieutenant with his own firearm. Tho dovll was Ignorant of the mechanism ot the revolver, and after finding that ho could not dis charge It, disappeared In the forest with the revolver. Twenty-nlno rifles aro lost, with more than that many cartridge belts and at least three thousand rounds of ammunition. Under the stress ot tho trail, exhausted from lack ot food, the men cast aside first one thing and then another. In the final emergency discarding tho cartridge belts that were growing heavier and heavier as the days advanced and the pangs of hunger Increased. They assert that their rifles were lost In crossing tho streams swollen Into swift rushing tor rents by the rains. It is feared that the treacherous guides noted where the rifles were dropped and that many or them arc now In the hands of tho ene my. Tho principal Insurrccto leader In that section ot tho Island Is Captain Sugcnlo Deza, who was tho leader of the Ilalanglga massacre. Tho thirty rifles or so that ho was reported to have may have been considerably aug mented by this last fiasco. What the object of the expedition was that has resulted so disastrously Is unknown. It Is supposed hero that tho object was to try and como to quar ters with Captain Kugent Oaza, who was reported to bo In the vicinity ot the almost Inaccessible Malabogo coun try . It Is reported that the most terrible. conditions prevail In Samar; that de tachments can hardly stir outsldo ot the garrisoned towns without peril of being ambushed and wiped out entire ly. The regiments In Samar aro so de pleted by their short-tlmo men having been sent homo that they barely pre sent a skeleton formation, Tho Ninth Infantry has only 300 men, some com panies being reduced to a ecoro. Tho other regiments aro reduced nearly as much. According to tho statements ot people coming from the southern waters tho conditions prevailing nra sufllclent to cause the gravest appre hension. General Smith, when seen the other day by an otllcer. who has Just returned from Samar, said that tho commands would send men out for two or three days and If they wero fortunate enough to get back they Invariably had to be sent to the hospital. There also seeniB to be some trouble among the officers. When General Smith Issued his orders, some of them were to the effect that natives found outside ot tho towns wero to bo shot. In somo cases this has been strictly adhered to, but In c.iers ofllcers havo Issued passes to tho natives In their district permitting them to go be yond tho lines. On several occasions order in which they arrived in tho 1'hlllpnlnes, and In each caso only when tho regiment enn bo spared with out embarrassment and without im pairing tho military control of tho sit uation. All tho troops sent out In 1S98 already havo been recalled to tno United States with the exception ol those who ro-enllsted for service In the archipelago. When all the fresh troops In tho United States under ordors to tho Philippines havo arrived there. It Is calculated, General Chaffee will havo on effective flRhtlng force of nearly 32,000 men, excluslvo of tho regiments of 1899, which aro to bo brought homo at his earliest convenience. It Is not believed It wilt bo possible for tho first ot these troops to lravo the Islands for nt least thrco months. NO PLAGUE IN MANILA Manila, Jan. 29. Up to dato thero baB not been ono caso ot plaguo In tho city of Manila. Not since tho American occupation has the bulletin hoard of tho Hoard of Health been so clear of plaguo returns nt this aeasou of tho year as it is today. As going to show, in somo slight de gree, tho work of tho board, It may bo mentioned thnt In tho month ot De cember 2500 houses wero thoroughly cleaned and disinfected and 10,000 cartloads of filth taken from them and dumped In tho waters of tho bay. On tho Hancock there arrived foi tho Health Department 2000 rat traps of various patterns and patents, and theso havo nearly all been distributed nbout tho city, tho rat-catching having risen to COO a day, all of which are oxamlned In tho laboratory for any signs ot the plague. Ily tho Hancock, also, enmo to tho board 15,000 pounds of sulphur for burning In Infected ot suspected houses. From today com mences tho tour of vaccination ot tho Chinos under tho supervision o tno Hock Kl Con Club, and In all It Is ex pected that somo 10.000 vaccinations will tnko place In the next week. And the worm turned nt last. At yesterday's meeting of the Uoard of Health, Dr. Cooper protested against the consumption of tlmo every week over the everlasting palal supply ques tion. After this It Is likely a commit tee will attend to tho delinquencies ot contractors both furnishing and trans portation. Dr. II. C. Sloggctt, president; Dr. C 11. Cooper, Dr. W. M. Jloorc. E. A. Mott-Smlth, Attorney Oencral K. P. Dole nnd Fred. C. Smith constituted the meeting, and In attendance wero Dr. J. S. U. Pratt, C. Charlock and C. II. Iteynolds, respectively the execu tle otllcer, the secretary nnd the su perintendent ot the Molokni Settlement. A letter from Wllder's Steamship Company was received, giving a report on the landing of n lot of cattle at Kalaupapa. Owing to the weather, tbo schooner Ka Mot had tu bring eight head on to Honolulu. Mr. Iteynolds reported that he had made arrangements for disposing ot tho cattle brought here, and his action was nproved, With reference to r.ic shipment of palal, Mr. Iteynolds told of his writing directions to Judgo Knlua, tho con contractor, which the latter had nut observed. In consequence thero was a quantity of the foodstuff In Honolulu liable to spoiling, A second shipment without order had been made. Owing to the detention of steamers by the storm, Mr. Iteynolds could not get ad vices to the Settlement regarding tha supply. He did not think the stuff hero now could be disposed of profit ably. Dr. Cooper thought It would be well to have a palal committee, instead ol having the time of every meeting tak en up with this everlasting palal ques tion. "Wo have a palal committee," the president said, "Mr. Smith being tha chairman." Dr. Cooper moved that If the palal sent without order cannot bo disposed of, the Hoard will not be responsible for Its value. Carried. A letter from James II. Iloyd, Super intendent of Public Works, was re ceived with regard to tho disposal ot garbage, concluding rrlth an assur ance that the Department never har bored any Intent to retard tho work of tho Hoard. Dr. Sloggctt spoke of the distance ol the garbage dump at Sheridan street beach, saying that with sanitary pro- cautions there might not bo dangei from the Iwllcl dump. Dr. Pratt said the garbage was be ing burned nnd there was a distinct sanitary improvement nt tho place. Ho described tho dralnago work being car ried out. Dr. Sloggctt did not deem It neces sary to tako up time with the matter, since thero was such evidence ot im provement. Neither, while not desir ing to have any whitewashing of com plaints thnt had been Just, did ho con sider It necessary to bring up the next order of business 'Hcport of the com mittee on washhousc8 at Iwllcl." Two letters were read from the sani tary Inspector nt Illlo. In one In structions were asked for regarding the granting of building permltB. This tho Hoard decided to be altogether out of Its province. The other related to the flshmarket and was referred back to the writer, with Instructions that a petition of residents on the subject would bo considered. Dr. W. F. McConkey wroto asking for leave of absence for a month, re commending thnt Dr. C. A. Peterson be appointed as his substitute tor the dis trict of Makawao. Granted. Amusement was caused by tho read ing of a letter addressed to the "Hon. Mayor of Honolulu," by a self-styled "professor" of palmistry, psychology nnd astrology, wanting to know about the conditions for starting a school of bis professions In Honolulu, Part of his declared purpose was to conduct a palmistry school In some local paper. lie hoped to hao the privilege of read ing the Mayor's hand on arrival. Tho letter was referred to tho Treasurer of Hawaii, but tho Attorney General ob served that the Treasurer could not license such a person. Ilcports for February of the city sanitnry officer and inspectors were rend and filed. The Food Commission er's report Is delayed, AMATEUR PHOTOGRAPHERS.
