TOTAL, FOUR CASES TO DATE Has Made its Appearance in Different Localities. Houses May be Quarantined. Circular Letters to Vari- ous Physicians. A 43-minute special session of the Board of Health was held at the usual place, 12:30 p. m. Saturday, for the pose of discussing and deciding upon some plan of action in regard to the appearance of diphtheria in the. city. Those present at the meeting were: President Smith, Drs. Wood, Howard and Alvarez; Messrs. Reynolds, Lan- sin and Keliipio. Drs. Howard and Wood reported to the board the cases of diphtheria al ready developed, and the circum stances connected with their discov ery. I here had been four cases brought to the notice of the city phy sician, as follows: 1. The case of the native child, whose home was near the Catholic Cemetery on King street. It will be remembered that the parents called at the Government Dispensary with the child. The phj'sician in charge sus pected diphtheria and took the young patient to Dr. Wood's office, whore death resulted before the physicians were able to do anything. Some of the mncuous from the dead child's throat was taken to Dr. Alvarez, who. after making a culture, proved beyond a doubt that death had been caused bv that treacherous disease diphtheria. This wa9 the first case, and every pre caution was taken to prevent a spread. 2. This case was discovered during the early part of last week in a house on Emma street, the victim being a. German child. The physician in at- endnnce did not suspect diphtheria. ' he child died, and. Dr. Wood, deem- ng the case a suspicious one, obtained part of the larynx and gave it to Dr. Alvarez for examination. A culture was made, and, as in the first case, inmistakable proof of diphtheria was he result. .. This case was developed in a Japanese child in Moiliili and reported ij- Dr. Kojima. The city physician ailed, made an examination, and, aft er the usual lapse of time necessary or making a culture, had absolute proof of the existence of the disease n question. 4. The last case was discovered on Queen street, opposite the Judiciary milding. the cliild being a native. It seemed to be the opinion of the oard that the matter was a very grave one. the fact of the disease having made its appearance in four parts of he city, widely separated, being es pecially significant. After the report3? of the physicians, it was moved and carried that the matter of quarantin- ng premises where diphtheria might e found to exist and all precautions necessary, be kept in the hands of Dr. Toward and Executive Officer Rey nolds. It was moved and carried that the secretary be instructed to send circu- ar letters to the various practicing physicians of the city, asking them to report to the board any suspicious cases that might happen to come to heir notice. Secretary AVilcox sent out some of these circular letters Saturday aft ernoon. The members discussed the advisa ility of notifying the school teachers of the city to report any and all cases of heavy colds and appearances of sore throats, and refuse to allow in school- any child who might bail from a lo cality where it is known diphtheria ex- sts. However, nothing definite wa? done regarding the matter. Tn speaking of the probable origin of the disease in Honolulu. Dr. Wood gave it as his opinion that it bad been nought from San Francisco, where an epidemic has been raging for some time past. After discussing various other mat ters in connection with the "existence of diphtheria n the city, the board adjourned. Sailors Scale PrUon Wall. At 9:45 a. m. Saturday Keola, a na tive trusty, ran up into the receiving station from the police station yard, saying two sailors, Gordon and Mills, from the C. D. Bryant, had scaled the wall. Upon investigation, it was found that the fellows had gotten over by putting one of the benches up against the wall. Police officers were sent out at once, and Conley and Kupihea caught the men in Allen & Robinson's lumber yard. The statement made in an afternoon paper that V. J. Fag geroos, the day turnkey, was upstairs getting his picture taken is altogether erroneous. He was upstair on work for the police station, aad had a per fect right to be where he was. True, there was a camera in the vicinity, but it was not pointed toward the turnkey. IMPORTANT RAID. Kaapa and His Men Clean Out a Notorious Joint. Detective Kaapa and his men made a raid on an opium joint above the pork shop of Yee Wo, on King street, about G:30 last evening,! and succeeded in capturing nine smokers, together with Young E, the proprietor. This nlace has long been suspected by the police, and several attempts to get in to the joint have resulted in failure. Not long ago Gus Corclee came very nearly getting his head taken off by one of the large barricaded doors. Kaapa and his men went about it in a quet. manner, climbed up on the roof; kicked in a small boarded window, for escape, in case of the approach of offi cers, and, jumping in. took the China men so by surprise that they did not even have time to do away with any of their opium or outfits. They were all arrested and locked up. Young E confessed to the ownership of the joint, and will probably plead guilty to the charge of unlawful pos session of opium in the Police Court today. The others would saj' nothing. The joint. was one of the most per fectly barricaded of any that have ever been discovered in the city. There are two rooms next to the roof. After go ing up a flight of stairs from a lane, one is met b3r a heavy door. This is bolted on the inside by means of a heavy wooden bar. A hole about three inches in diameter is provided with a shutter, so that a man on guard may see who is approaching. Up another flight of stairs one comes to another heavy door with three heavy wooden bars in front of it, and which can be locked by a combination from inside. This opens into the smoking rooms proper two little bits of places hardly large enough to move about in. To the right of the last door is a bole which, when the top is pulled up. looks down into the butcher shop be low. Through this the signals for cus tomers are given. Tn one of the smolnng rooms is a large funnel arrangement connecting with a cesspool below. Through this the opium and outfits are thrown at the approach of the police. Kaapa and his men deserve great credit for cleaning out this notorious joint. THE FXTKRTAINER. Frank Lincoln Scores a Signal Success. Frank Lincoln's reputation as a hu morist is established in Honolulu. Ow ing to the obstacles people encounter in trying to make themselves believe that one man can make them laugh, the house was not well filled. The loss fell principalis to those who remained away, for the people who attended the performance were so well pleased that the end came much too soon. Mr. Lincoln, besides being' a wonder ful mimic, is a clever pianist and sing er. His imitations are more than won derful: they are marvelous, and the range is as broad as all outdoors. It makes no difference what the na tionality the person may be who strikes Mr. Lincoln's funny bone, he is equal to the ' emergency of repro ducing him before his audience. In French, German or Italian, whether he speaks the languages or not, Mr. Lincoln has the faculty of making the people believe he can. At the entertainment tomorrow ev ening he will have an entire change of program. Sydney's Frozen Mf-at. SYDNEY, April 15. The steamer Cornwall has sailed for London with 84,614 carcasses of mutton and a lar?e consignment of joints of mutton and beef. This constitutes the record ship ment of meat from Sydney. OFF FOR LONDON Hawaiian Delegation to Queen's JnMlee. MAJOR IAUKEA AS ATTACHE Will Convey Congratula tions to Queen. On Previous Missions for Former Government Some of His Decorations. Maj. Curtis P. Iaukea, of President Dole's staff, who accompanies the Hon. S. M. Damon to England as attache and .secretary of legation, has on form er occasions represented this coun try aboard in various capacities, the first being his mission to Moscow, as the bearer of the King's congratula tions to their Imperial Majesties, the Emperor and Empress of Russia, on MAJ. CURTIS P. IAUKEA. Attache and Secretary Hawaiian Le gation at London, England. the occasion of their coronation in 1S83. As the representative of this coun try on that occasion, Major Iaukea was invested with the Grand Cross of the Imperial Order of Saint Stanislaus. On that same mission he was intrusted by the then Government with import ant matters of state, chief among which was the Fast Indian and Japan ese immigration, the question rf la bor being at that time of vital import ance to the chief industry of the coun try. As a result of this mission the La bor Convention between this country and Japan was successfully negotiated. R. W. Irwin, the present Hawaiian Minister Resident to Japan, accom panied Mr. Iaukea on his return to Hawaii to conclude negotiations. The last important foreign mission intrusted by the Hawaiian Govern ment to Mr. Taukea, and one of which he is most proud, was when, as Cham berlain of the Royal Household, be ac companied Queen Kapiolani, at pres ent the Queen Dowager, and the ex Queen. Liliuokalani, then heir appar ent, to London, on the occasion cf Her Majesty. Queen Tictoria's jubilee in 1S87. The royal visitors were gra ciously received 1 y Her Majesty, and during their entire stay in London were the guests of the British Sover eign. Tn commemoration of that visit, Major Iaukea received the Jubilee Medal, which he will probably wear with distinction on the occasion of his visit to London with Mr. Damon. Among Major Iaukea's greatest treasures are the various decorations he has been invested with by foreign monarehs on occasions of his visits to their courts as the representative of Kalaukaua. Some of these are ex ceedingly high in class. Among the decorations are the Grand Crosses and Cordon of the royal orders of Saint Stanislaus of Russia and Takoro of Servia; grand officers crosses of the Crown of Italy; St. Olav of Sweden, and Rising Sun of Japan; officer of the Legion of Honor of France, besides four of the five Hawaiian decorations invested by the late King and other medals of lesser note. On the occasion of his visit to. England, in 18S7, the King intrusted him with a number of shell necklaces, which he was to pre sent to the daughters of the Prince and Princess of Wales. In acknowledging Major Iaukea's kindness, the Prince presented him with a handsome dia mond ring. Mr. Iaukea has held with honor and credit many important posts in this country at various times during Ka lakaua's reign. He has been Collector General of Customs. Chamberlain of the Roj-al Household. Secretary of the Foreign Office, Governor of the Island of Oahu, Secretary of the Privy Coun cil of State, Commissioner and Agent of Crown Lands. Adjutant General of the forces, as well as other honorary positions. He was born in Walmea, Hawaii, 41 years ago. He received his education in the school conducted by Archdeacon Mason at what is now known as Iolani College. Twenty-two years ago he was given a clerkship In the Interior Department, under Chief Clerk Hassinger, and has remained In Government service since then. He is a genial gentleman and extremely popular with whom he comes In con tact. He was a special favorite of Ka lakaua, and when the remains of that monarch were brought here on the. Charleston, Mr. Iaukea was selected by the Queen Dowager to represent her. Just two years ago this lady presented the Queen Dowager to represent her when the remains were, conveyed. to to the Palace. Just two years ago this lady presented him with the hand- some gold watch worn by Kala kaua at the time of bis death in San Francisco. At present Mr. Iaukea is chief clerk of the Government Land Department, under Mr. Prown. ZAuii.v(j.v has .mtki:i:.vikiji:i. VuliintPprs f'!n' 1h irMtrsl 'm .Madrid. HAVANA, April 10. A dispatch from Liberdad, Province of Plnar del Rio, says that the well-known insur gent leader, Julian Zarraga. who Is charged with having blown up several trains with dynamite, has surrendered to the Spanish authorities there with five of his followers. The latest news from Madrid is that efforts made by the Spanish Govern ment in agreement with private com panies to recruit volunteers for the war in Cub'a have failed completely. Only 200 men enlisted. Some Republican newspapers in Ma drid says this failure is due to reports of the great suffering among the Span ish soldiers in Cuba for lack of food and the Government's slowness in the payment of troops. Conservatives' in Spain, as well as in Cuba, say the fail ure is entirely the work of the Repub licans and Liberals, who, at the be ginning of the winter, made a sensa tional press campaign against the dis honest military administration in Cuba. 1 WILL He Is wkia:om jT--.f;rr, IMfOHTCS Town on KiecTMl !n Cmi!
