Special Meeting of the Board of
TOTAL, FOUR CASES TO DATE
Has Made its Appearance
in Different Localities.
Houses May be Quarantined.
Circular Letters to Vari-
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
.. 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
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
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
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

ters in connection with the "existence
of diphtheria n the city, the board
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
Kaapa and His Men Clean Out a
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
Frank Lincoln Scores a Signal
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

the occasion of their coronation in
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
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

Department, under Mr. Prown.

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
