BOX NO. 679 BJly Mwtissr, 75 cents a Hoii "No, I don't believe the death rate of this city is growing; at any rate not so fast as people imagine from casually reading the mortuary reports," said C. B. Reynolds, the agent of the Board of Health, a day or two since. "While the death rate for July was 93, it should -be noted that there were five deaths from violence in that month, and that eight more were those of non residents. By non-residents I mean those who have only been in the city a few days. There are a..-great many- invalids who come here only to die aft er a few weeks or months at the most, but so far we have not classed them as non-residents, though I believe that we should do so." "What population do you base your calculations on, Mr. Reynolds?" "Thirty-five thousand is the figure we calculate the percentage on, but I am well satisfied that at least another 5,000 should be added, and even then the estimate would be a low one. Why, one has only to look at the large num her of buildings going up in every di rection, as well as those built in the last year, to see how rapidly people are coming in. The hotels and lodgn houses are all crowded and there is hardly half a dozen vacant houses for rpnt- Take some of the new ounaings going up in the Chinese quarter, for sncfanoo SnmA nf thm will hold as lllOlUIiWi w w many as a hundred people, not al Hhinesf either." "How about the white population?" wns nsked. "I have no hesitation in saying that that has doubled since the census was taken. Walk down Fort street at any hour of the day and every otner man von meet is a stranger. I am satisfied that the census to be taken next year will be a revelation to us in many re onofte ' ' To tvioro nn wnv of estimating the innrMSP of white nonulation?" "Not any that would be reliable. Wre form an estimate from the arrivals on the steamships and sailing vessels, bu the estimate is valueless for practica To illustrate, let me men tion the case of mechanics. Large numbers of these have been coming frnni t n A Const, but they don't stay. ThPv work a few weeks, get homesick or.ri lonvft without saying a word to anyone. These men are used to going tn the thpater every evening, getting a good glass of beer for five cents,- be sides fish, fruit and table luxuries that flnt small fortune here, while in i,ai ifornia they constitute an every-day diet. That is the reason workingmen im'f ctnv in Honolulu, and, as a class til these conditions i nri what is true ot are ciiuuocu' n-nrL-in?mpn is true of many others .v, cox- if nco too much to live here." COLONEL ALDACE WALKER. Something About the Past Career of a Notable Visitor. Lieutenant Colonel Aldace F. Walk er of New York, who is visiting this city, accompanied by Mrs. Walker and their daughters, 'Miss Mary Manning Walker and Miss Kate L. Walker, has held many positions of honor and trust previous to becoming chairman or tne board of directors of the great banta Fe Railroad system. Aldace F. Walker has been twice State Senator of Vermont and was sec ond in command of one of the Vermont regiments in the Civil War. He was appointed in 1SS7 one of the two Re- Dublican members of the Interstate Commerce Commission and two years later resigned to become chairman of the Interstate Commerce Railway As sociation. Since that time has has been chairman of the Western Traffic Association and receiver of the Santa Fe. He is a notable railroad lawyer, too, and a prominent member of the Loyal Legion. GEORGE W. JULIAN. George W. Julian, who lately died in Indiana at an advanced age, was one of the founders of the Republican par ty and served several terms in Con gress. His political career was fatally blighted in 1S72, however, when he took part in the Greeley bolt. Unlike Chauncey M. Depew and many other lea ders in that ill-starred movement Mr. Julian did not return to the Re publican fold, but remained outside with his ancient enemies. He never held but one more office and that was a territorial surveyorship in New Mexico. S. F. Chronicle. During the Civil War; as well as in our late war with Spain, diarrhoea was one of the most troublesome dis eases the army had to contend with in many instances it became chronic, and the old soldiers still suffer from it. Mr. David Taylor, of W7ind Ridge, Greene Co., Pa., is one of these. He uses Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy and says he never found anything that would give him such quick relief.
