the vessil against the pressure of Ice.
A triple coating of oak, pitch pine, and
South American greenwood will be put
on as a protection against floating Ice,
and at the bow and stern there will
be steel band3. The length of the ship
will be forty-six meters, the breadth
ten or eleven, and the draught five.
Coal and other store accommodation ;

and we are unable'to give, this morn

The Boere are still maase'd along the

'General Lord Methuen, on account of

Lord Roberta has reached the Cape

One thousand Indian stretcher-bearers

Charges Against Head of Episcopal

rented out. After a while the bishop
married Caroline Cochran, of i: if al l.
a member of one of the foremost fair. I-
lies of the State. After this inebriety
and public drunkenness were oi'enly
charged against Bishop Jae k'on.
At a m'.-ting of the Kpiscopal clergy

said to have been demanded. The bish

sumably they have managed to let'
their respective governments know the

that the material remove-1 be carted

It was a'o moved j.fr. Hatch that
the merchants of Hanolul i be Informed
that lr. th .-.ir'rn of the Board of
Health grrat axMntance would be ren
dered to the Board In Its efforts to
suppress the plague, by the merchants
agreeing to open their places of busi
ness at 10 a. m. and closing at S p. m.
This motion was carried unanimously.
The above motion was made for the
reason that It would perhaps prove a
factor In rendering valuable assistance
in making a house-to-house Inspection
by the Citizens' Sanitary Committer, la
placing at the disposal of the Board
large number of needed volunteers.
Mr. Hatch moved the appointment of
a finance committee to disburse the
money placed at thp disposal of the
Board by the Council of Slate, as fol
lows: "Moved that a finance commit
tee of three members be appointed by
the president of the Board of Health
to recommend methods to be followed
in handling and disbursing the funds
placed at the disposal of the Board by
the Council of State; and also to nomi
nate cashier and disbursing agents
The suggestion was made by Mr.
Hatch that this committee be appoint
ed from persons outside the Board,
which was agreed upon.
The president, acting at once, ap
pointed as a financA committee, C. M.
Cooke, chairman; J. B. Atherton, and
T. Rain Walker.
A communication from Major Taylor
2 the United States military hospital
, was received, in which he stated that
he deemed It his duty to protect tbe
American troojw stationed In Honolulu
from issil)le contact with the plague,
and asked ierm!ssIon of the Board to
erect a hospital and detention camp on
the Beach road near the kerosene de
tention camp. Upon motion the Board
parsed favorably ujon the request,
and in a few days a tented detention
camp will be establiFhed at the point
suggested. Major Tayior Is using rv-
vclope to be destroyed. President Wood
stated In this connexion that he under
