Read the Hawaiian Gazette (Semi-WceJclyX SAY THERE IS TARO OH MAUI Board of Health Regulation on Au topsies Hllo Britishers Make an Offer. The regular weekly session of the Board of Health was held as usual yes terday afternoon. There were present the following: President Smith, Drs. Emerson, Day, Alvarez and Monsar rat, C. B. Reynolds, G. W. Smith and D. Keliipio. The following proposed regulation of the Board of Health relating to the making of autopsies in institutions under the care of the Board of Health: 1. Every physican or medical offi cer in charge of any hospital, asylum or other institution for the care or treatment of the sick maintained by the Board of Health, is authorized in his discretion to make such autopsy, or scientific examination, as he" shall deem necessary or desirable, of the body of any patient who has died in the institution under his charge. 2. Every such examination and autopsy shall be made in the presence of not less than two witnesses. The results of every such autopsy, shall be immediately recorded by the physician and a copy of the same sent to the Board of Health. 3. It shall be the privilege of the friends of the deceased to be repre sented at the autopsy by some person appointed by them for the purpose. The matter was deferred until the next regular meeting. A letter from H. D. Wishard to Sen ator Rice was read. In this the writer asked for information as to what to do upon finding cattle affected with tub erculosis. President Smith stated that he had been spoken to by Senator Rice and had told the latter that any cattle found to be affected with tuber culosis should be destroyed and buried at a suitable depth. Senator Rice stated that there were not many cat tle on Kauai affected with the disease but once in a while an affected animal was found. A petition from residents and tax payers of the Districts of Hilo and Hamakua asked that a veterinary in spector for the Town of Hilo be ap pointed for the purpose of examining all live stock from foreign ports with a view to the prevention of introduc tion of various disases. The importa tion of live stock into Hilo has greatly increased during the past few years making such an officer an absolute necessity. ; The matter was referred to the Min ister of the Interior, its proper place. A letter from H. D. Elliott of Hilo announced the meeting of British sub jects in Hilo on May 5th and the pass age of a resolution to increase to $2,000 the subscription to the Diamond Jubi lee Fund for the purpose of adding to the present Government hospital in Hilo an addition to be (known as the "Victoria Jubilee Annex" and to be used for the Anglo-Saxon residents of the Isand of Hawaii. President Smith wras of the opinion that the offer was a good one and could be accepted. Geo. W. Smith said he was afraid there might be a con flict in the event of acceptance of the offer. It was finally decided that the Board entertain the proposition pro vided the building, when erected, shall become the property of the Hawaiian Government to be used for hospital purposes subject to the reservation that it shall be used only "for the benefit and use of the Anglo-Saxon residents of the Island of Hawaii." A petition drawn up at a recent meeting of the lepers at the settlement on Molokai asked that the poi and pav- ai supply be obtained from the Va- uku Taro Co. and that the petitioners be not compelled to wait for the supf y from Honolulu. The petitioner? represented that they could stand flour poi no longer, that they were in, great pilikia and should have paiai at once. They had learned that taro was plentiful on Maui and asked for im mediate relief. The report of the special committee of the Legislature, appointed to visit the leper settlement, was read by Pre sident Smith. A communication from Minister Cooper enclosing the questions pro pounded by Rep. McCandless in the House in the morning, regarding doubt in the cases of certain lepers at the settlement on Molokai, was read. The Board decided that the persons men tioned be allowed to come to Honolulu for re-examination should they so de sire. At 5 p. m. Board went into "Rypcmi- tive session. With Company G. The Co. G boys gave their friends and themselves an excellent time at the Drill Shed last night. Dancing was the main feature and this was indulg ed in up to a late hour. A club of na tive singers added to the zest of the occassion. The hall was very prettily decorated as is always the case when the military companies give balls. At about 10:30 o'clock refreshments were served and after that came the re mainder of the program. The occa sion was altogether a most happy one. Not less than 200 people attended.

An abstract of the annual report of The Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada for 1S97, which appears in this paper, is deserving of more than a cur sory glance. It will be seen that the Company has made very substantial progress during the' year, and is going forward on safe lines by leaps and bounds. In 1S72 the total income was $48,210; in 1S84 it was $278,379; in 1S92 it was $1,134,807, and in 1S97 it was $2,23S,S94. In the same space of time the assur ance in force and assets advanced in a similar ratio. The assurance in force has grown from $1,004,350, in 1S72, to $44,953,790, in 1S97; and the assets from the modest sum of $96,401, in 1S72, to the ample amount given in the report for 1S97 $7,322,371. After meeting all the liabilities of last year, including the payment of $403,674 for matured endowments and deaths claims and $217,377 for profits, there remains a surplus, as regards policyholders, of $314,220. The surplus over all liabilities, according to the Canadian Government standard is $5S3,271, while the surplus, as regards policyholders, by the Canadian stand ard, amounts to $688,272. The general showing is one on which the policyholders, directors and man agement have much cause for self congratulation. The Company is represented in the Islands by Bishop & Co., Bankers, Honolulu.

Ingalls, widow of a former American Consul in Samao, through her agent, now in the city, has pur chased the property immediately .ad joining the Parmalee premises on the Ewa side of Beretania street and will soon erect a residence there.
