Precautionary Measures Against the
Bubonic Plague Being Seri
WASHINGTON, I). C, December 21.
A wholesale cxiermlnation of rats is
contemplated by German sanitary ofu
cjals as a precaution against the plague.
Consul General Wyman is informed
that the health officers at Bremen have
made the following recommendation in
"Keatnt. iuvestigations prove that
rats and other veraiin are the principal
transmitters of the plague. Owing to
the impassibility of preventing rats
from earning on board vessels at for
eign ports and subsequently escaping to
tne land, the only defense against the
danger which threatens us is to ex
terminate theje animals as far as pos
sible. VestifM engaged in traflie be
tween tne ser and ports where tae
existence of plague Is cucpoctid should
be supplied with cats, l'oioon shouM
aiso le ued and such ships should be
well smoked after the removal of the
eargo. On shore the rats must be
fought with cats and rat-eatehing dogs.
Rewards must also be ottered for the
delivery of dead rats. In onlr t-... en
courage port warchmm an.l ui'ur ha:
borcmp:uj-(.d to keep rat-catching d :.
premium of 7.50 per amim fihoaid !t
allowed to the owner of each such do?
the total numiier at Bremen and P. rem
erhaven n to exceed twenty-five
With t hie allowance P')i t employes will
willing to k ep dogs and pay the dog
In addition to the $1S7 needed for
this purpose, $170 should be appronriat
ed for j a)ing a premium of Ue for each
dead rat delivered. The dead bodies
an 'be disposed of in the ovens of the
gas works and in the central heaters of
the ports. The possibility that the
premiums may encourage the bringing
in of dead rats from other places can
not be avoided. Another nvans for get
ting rid of rats is to sulphurize the
sewers in Bremen and to flood with
river water those at Bremorhaven.
Both of these plans are being consider
ed. Owners of warehouse and barn?
nar the ports are urged In their own
Interest to do their utmost to destroy
the rats nesting therein.
"Furthermore, they are required, as
are all port employes, to send to the
bacteriological institute all rats found
dead without visible wounds. In order
that they may be examined for traces
of plague. Consideration Is now being
given to the question as to whether
and when this requirement should be
extended to the public generally, a3 has
already been done at Hamburg. The
question as to whether a general de
struction of nts by -meatus of poison
should Ik? resorted to is also ling con
sidered. For various reasons a de!s

NEW PACIFIC LINERS.
To be the Largest Vessels Ever Built
NEWPORT NEWS, Va., Jan. C.-In
the two new Taciflc Mail steamships,
for which the keels have just been laid
at the shipyard, the Newport News
Shipbuilding and Drydock Company Is
building the largest steamships ever
contracted for in the Fnite.i States.
Until the company secured these con
tracts from the Pacific Mail Steamship
Company, the American Line steam-

The announcement of the death of
Mrs. George E. Boardman yesterday
afternoon caused a feeling of gloom to
1 .1. - I.r.w1.
vlous reports ha 1 chronicled an 1m
provement in her condition. The
Board had been in cons'ant receipt of
news rrorn tier lausiuc, an ti wnicn
bad indieated that she was better. Her
fever had diminished until her tem
perature registered l"o 2-3, although
sh remained in a seml-unconfclons
ondifion. The Board of Health was
in session at 4:10 p. ra. and President
Wood had Just announced the hopeful
sizns of the day relative to the plague
situation In general when a note w.i
placed in h'.s hands. A look of sur-
pris on hi.s face and a tightening of made another tour of Inspection nnd
the Hps c aused the remainder of the! condemnation In the unburned di
Board to fear the worst in Mrs. Board-' trlets, the result of which has ben th"
twin's case. President Wood then an-,pi-iare of fvcraJ resolutions bi-h
nourced with regret the news of the' will mem the further destruction of

There Is scarcely a doubt but that the
postmortem will how that death was
due to the plague."
Dr. Day, who had visited Mrs. Board
man at noon, stated that at that time
she was seemingly neither better nor
worse, but even then there was no
doubt whatever, in his mind, that ehe
was a plague victim. She nank rapid
ly and shortly before 4 o'clexk expired.
The occupants or the house will bo
placed in quarantine In the yard. Tents
will be erected there for their 'deten
tion and drastic measures take-n for
preventing the spread of the Infection
from that locality. In reference to the
house itself, the opinion of the Board
wan that the house would undoubtedly
be subjected to the same treatment as
houses In Chinatown. It may be
burned within a short time. Dr. Day
said that there should be no question
about burning the place, and that tho
locality could be so disinfected as to
prevent the Fpread of the disease.
President Wood statenl to the Board:
"The case has occurred In a portion of
the city which has not been Infected
previously. There Is nothing to prevent
the Board from taking measures to
sump out the Infection In that locali
ty. Expense must not be considered In
connection with the matter."
The history of the rase is difficult to
trace, but the health authorities feel
reasonably certain that the rat found
in the Jordan store had some connec
tion in carrying the infection to Mrs.
Boardman. Dr. Day, upon the invita
tion of Dr. Augur, vbdted the patient
on Saturday night. The symptoms
then were highly suspicious, but tho
bacteriological examination of the
blood taken frcm the lady, exhibited
no signs of the plague bacilli, and no
announcement of the case was made
until Sunday, when the Health P.oard
deemed the ease suspicious enough to
quarantine the premises, since which
time guard have surrounded the hoime
and prevented any one from entering
or leaving It.
The Hawaiian who was reported dead
from plague lat night was found In
a house on River street. Just above
Beretanla. The history of the case
shows that the young man had be-en
ailing slightly for a day or two. and
complained to his wife of pain n his
groin. He has been employed in one
of the work-gangs of the Health De
partment Inside the quarantine dlnlrlct,
and worked until yt-sterday afternoon.
Dr. Howard responded to the call, and
found a well-developed 1uIk In the
right jrroin. The body was removed to
the morgue. The premises In which
the Hawaiian died were within the
district which tho Board declared yes-
Iterday was in an insanitary condition,
' 1 ... 1 rr

owners were to have Itcen notified to

I will change the situation and the en

I It Is stated that the Infection in this
case can be traced dlre tly to Ahl's
I place on Nuuanu street. Ahl moved
' several times after it w as announced
that Block 10 would burn, and hbc fam-
ily anI most of bin household goods
t were moved Into the house In which
Kapahi died last night. Ahl and his
t family are now in one of the detention
) camps. Therefore the logical conrlti-
'sion has leen reached that the Infcr
I'tion wan not picked up during the
