THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER: .HONOLULU, NOVEMBER 27. 1900.
THE PACIFIC Commercial Advertiser O. BHITII EDITOR. TUESDAY i NOVEMBER 27 NEWS OF WORLD CONDENSED SHIELDING CULPRITS. At the meeting of the Board of Health where the latest report of Food Inspector Shorey was filed reporters were notified of a rule that the names of brands of adulterated articles might be published but not the names of the men or firms who work tm?se bogus products off on the home public. The nature of the swindle might be ex posed but the identity of the swindler must be kept secret. Thus we find in Mr. Shorey's published report vague references to watered milk from "Dairy No. 1 or 2" a designation which means nothing to the public and conveys no warning to consumers; or an exposure of imitation Jelly or catsup in which the trade mark or address of some dls V tant and easily-forgotten manufactur er Is revealed but the name of the local dealer is omitted. This rule, while very gratifying 'to people- who sell trash to their custom era under an Implied guarantee of pur ity, will never drive adulterated wares from this market or even help to do so. The only way to stop the Illicit trade is to spoil the business of the Il licit trader. It does little good to de nounce brands, because the purchaser rarely looks at them. He relies upon his dealer for a good article. Destroy his faith In that dealer and he buys nothing more of him and the dealer gets the strongest kind of n incentive to do business thereafter on the square. Experience In all pure food crusades teaches that the only remedy for the evil is a publicity so wide that no party Interested In the marketing of adulterated groceries, tuberculous meats and watered milk can escape. This fubliclty may be had by means of convictions In courts or by official exposure In the press or both. Any thing less than that is mjre by-play. Three or four yearti ago San Fran cisco had a pure food movement which, for the time, carried all before it. Scores of milk dealers were arrested and their names given to the public and 'that ended their connection with the milk business. The largest dealer In bogus groceries, a merchant named Kline, was driven out of the city by the complete loss of his custom. Sev eral manufacturers and dealers In Imi tation catsup, honey, table oil and wine, shut up shop. The law, there as here, was more fruitful in technical ac quittals than convictions, lout that did not matter, for the moment a buyer aw In the papers that his dealer was on the black list he .went elsewhere. The effect was most gratifying in lift ing up the general average of food products on sale. Dealers whose greed or carelessness had led them to violate the law either filled up their shelves with wholesome goods or went out of trade; and all dealers made haste to weed out their stocks, fearing every day an exposure by the press. Hun dreds of carloads of suspicious goods were shipped away; some to Oregon, much to the Interior of California and to Nevada, some to Mexico and not a little to Hawaii. Before the swindlers got control of the Board of Health al most anything edible for Bale In San Francisco might be eaten In safety; and while that condition lasted the death rate of the city visibly declined. The public wants to have the same thoroughness of method here. If a trap Is set for them, people want to know where the thing Is to be looked for and how avoided; they don't care a continental who manufactured the trap In the first place. , PLUMBING INSPECTION. Editor Advertiser: I notice the good work you have done in reference to plumbing matters, but I want to call your attention to a most important mat ter in this respect. You know how im portant it Is to have good plumbing work done In our homes; the health of the city depends upon It. Now from the very best authority I have It that the new plumb ing Inspector, Mr. Moore, is not capable of filling this office, as he never has had one day's experience In this line and does not know anything about it. Some grave error has been committed somewhere; it's not even probable that the Hoard of Health would appoint such a man to such a position If they knew his unfitness for It. Kindly look Into this matter and give an Interested public your Investigations of It; If It's true, he should give place to a man who does know; if It's not true no on i hurt by the Investigation. Yours, W. T. WILSON. The Board of Health acted on the principle laid down by Mr. Wilson in the appointment of Mr. Duffy, whereat the plumbers of the trust laughed a waxed fat at the expense of the pub Aner mis experience tne board con eluded that the wisest plan would be to give the place to an Intelligent citi zen of enough practical experience In engineering to make him a judge of good work in the plumbing line, yet one who had no affiliation with the plumbing trade itself. This was done and a chorus of protests from the members of the trust showed that the board had made no mistake. It does not do to put a member of ny given trade In a place where he is expected to protect the public trSm the tricks of that trade. His esprit du corps leads him to stand by his mates. As for plumbing, its principles ought to be understood by any good engineer and they are by Mr. Duffy's successor. It would not need a carpenter to pass upon me squareness ox a dox or a cooper to determine the value of a bar rel; nor does It require a plumber to ay whether a Job of plumbing answers to the specifications.
