Returning from Kalawao to Kalau papa. the Hoard of Health spent sever- 1 nours in discussion of the ooints obs erved. The Board was entertained at the residence of C. IS. Reynolds, who la ne superintendent of the settlement. Mr. Reynolds Is not much of a talker ut an excellent worker. He has the gures and facts of the colony's history mi oaiiy events at his angers ends nd his capabilities are conclusively roven by the manner In which the nee is conducted. Its progress has been gradual, but each year finds new additions and -aids o comfort and convenience. Mr. Rey- olds spends half his time at the settle ment and comes and goes every fort night. It Is to him that the Board ooks for its knowledge of the colony. Mr. Reynolds says that there were ight or more marriages recently and hat courtship and weddings follow on Molokai as in Honolulu. As is, well known, all children born are. as soon as possible, brought to the Kapiolanl Home In Honolulu, and, as is also well known, they seldom develop leprosy. A Hby or six months was brought here when the Board came back Saturday night. In one of .the Bishop Home cot tages were twins of ten months, whose mother, a leper, was rejoicing in the visit of the father, who lives here. The babies were handsome and laughing. They will not be allowed to remain with their mother much longer. Their moth- r lavished her affection on their mouths alternately with their father or father and mother openly embraced each other for minutes at a time. Some of the little groups who spent tho day In the cottages or gardens ate openly out of the same dishes, the visit ors brothers, wives, parents or chil dren of the leper colonists dipping Into the pol bowls with no thought of danger. HAVE NO FEAR. Old Kopena, who has had three leper wives, and who, after burying two. Is now happy with the third, was glad to tell of himself. He has been for years on the Island arid is not a leper, though in the closest contact hourly. He takes no precautions and his one grief is that he has no children. Long ago he came to the settlement 10 care for his wife, and when she died he married a leper, and then another at her death. He w ould take it ill if driven away. w llllam Mil of Honolulu was visit ing his children three of whom are at Kalawao. One Is in a desperate condi tion. The father, who has two clean children here, tenderly embraced his olive branches as he told of his sorrow at their condition. Their mother is dead. The question of the lepers voting was taken up. Their ballots will be cast at the settlement In the uual way and will be fumigated here In a hot-air chamber before being checked up by the electoral registrar. It is stated tnat 210 degrees Fahrenheit destroys any possible germ. So with the postof- fce question. United States Postal Agent Flint who has the matter in hand. Investigated it thoroughly and said that he would recommend no changes in the pewt office at the settle ment other than that no stamps be used and stamped envelopes only handled. The mall will oe fumigated here and money orders issued there will go through the same process. Only coin will be handled and all will De boiled here. When the farewell whistle blew hun dreds of the lepers proceeded to the landing, while those who had friends with them accompanied them to tne shore. For a half-hour the heartrend ing scene of farewell continued while the small boats plied back and forth. Some had to be torn away forcibly.

The Fearless wa one of the best tugs owned by the Spreckels Towing Company of San Francisco. She was built in to replace the old Fearless, which waa purchased by the United States Governrrent at the outbreak of the Spanish war and added to the "mosquito fleet" as the "Iroquois." The latter vessel is already well known here and recently left thl port to go to Midway Island.

The Fearl.s Is rated as a "sea-going tug" and much of her work on the Coast has been in towing large vessels and barge from port to port.

Loafers Terrify Residents of the Wai- kiki Road Last Night. Japanese laborers who have been pouring into Honolulu irom isiana . plantations were heard from last night about 8 o'clock on the waiKiKi roaa where for a short space of time they terrorized residents. A dozen of them intoxicated and arrogant In their de meanor came up the road probably from some of the Japanese lodging houses in that section of the city. They entered the premises of the residents and made demands upon those wno answered their calls for work and something to drink. Meeting w ith re fusals in each case they assumed threatening attitudes and made re marks which tended to scare the women folks. Two entered the jara 01 James H. Boyd and that gentleman promptly ejected them and telephoned the information to town. The ponce department was notified and raptatn Parker had the mounted omcers pre pared for aggressive action. A second telephone message to Mr. Boyd elicited the Information that the Japanese had fled the neighborhood and all was quiet again. The trouble of last night. It is assert ed, was caused by those wno nave drifted from various plantations into the city since June 14 when their la bor contracts expired. They belong to a class of Ignorant coolies who have been the leaders of trouble at all times on the plantations, , and from now on j the police will exercise a careful sur 1 veillance over them. .
