; HONOLULU BUSINESSMEN MUST DO IT.
E. E. Paxton, speaking at a meeting of the Chamber of
Commerce trustees Wednesday afternoon, sounded a warn
ing note that should be heeded in every business house and
by every citizen.
Mr. Paxton stated his belief that Honolulu had two great
responsibilities that demanded the unremitting attention of
the business men and all residents of the city the con
struction of wharves to accommodate shipping, and plac
ing the city in proper sanitary condition.
Mr. Paxton is right.
There is no city in the United States that has more at
stake in sanitation than Honolulu; no city with such a bril
liant future that may experience a period of temporary uiin
,if it neglect to exercise an average degree of foresight.
The wharves are important but these will be useless if
the town is not put in a condition that will keep it free from
quarantine, and the mosquito.
As a matter of fact, NEGLECT OF DUTY AT THE PRES
ENT TIME IS CRIMINAL NEGLECT. It will mean the loss
of lives and millions in property.
The Chamber of Commerce, the business orqanizations.
, .the civic bodies and the officials should be as much "on the
'v t iol)" t,av in and day out, as regards sanitation and the ag-J-M
& gi'cssive campaign to rid this town of mosquitoes, as it ever

One of the first things demanding attention is the results
that have been accomplished with the one thousand dollars
a month expended on the mosquito campaign. If this
money can be spent to better advantage by reorganization
of the work, reorganize; if more money is needed, raise the
money no better investment can be made.
Honolulu business organizations should have active
working committees that will be as constantly on the trail
of the City Supervisors, the Board of Health and the Sani-
tary Commission, as they ever were on the trail of the Leg-
This does not mean that the Supervisors and the Board
and the Commission need necessarily to be criticised, but
they should feel and know that there is behind them and
' with them, a live community sentiment supporting action and
criticising only inaction.
The organized interests should be constantly and insist
ently "on the job."
THEY MUST BE IF THIS CITY IS TO BE KEPT FREE
FROM CHOLERA, PLAGUE, YELLOW FEVER AND MA
LARIA. And let it he remembered, if this is not done it will be a
community disgrace that will justify and result in, the inter
ference of the Federal government, the establishment of a
military government anil a complete overturn of the present
Territorial system, followed by a clean-up of the town..
This is true because the living fact is always in evidence
that the United States officers went into Havana and Pana
malocalities that were reeking with filth and death and
cleaned them up, made them healthy and livable places and
all this during the time that Honolulu has been talking, talk
ing, talking but making absolutely no headway in clearing
out the mosquito, the deadly menace to human lives and
A clean city is Honolulu's particular business. If Hono
lulu doesn't do its plain duty, the United States government
