The following dispatch indicates that Belcher, the fugitive ex-Mayor of Pat- erson, N. J., slipped through Honolulu after all on his way to the Colonies: NEW YORK. Oct. 15. William Hen- ry Belcher, Mayor of Paterson, N. J., fugitive from justice and embezzler or more than $200,000 from financial in stitutions, has been located at Yebri, Queensland, Australia. He is residing there -with his old friend, James Rob ertson, a former Patersonian, who left home under similar circumstances more than fifteen years ago. Leaving Paterson on July 31 last, Belcher boarded a train at Little Falls, three miles from Paterson. At Newark he boarded a train for the West, ar riving in San Diego, Cal., five days later. He had shaved off his mustache and otherwise attempted to disguise himself. Belcher passed several days at San Diego, and this fact assisted him in de feating an attempt at capture at the instigation of Governor Stokes and Prosecutor Emley, when the ship on which he had engaged passage as "William H. Pitcher" was searched at San Francisco and Honolulu. When placed under arrest in San Francisco, Belcher called upon his San Diego friends to prove his identity and they did so, claiming him to be a business man of that city. When the ship was en route to Honolulu, Governor Stokes cabled the Sheriff at Honolulu, in forming him of the suspicions of the local authorities. Again the vessel was stopped. Bel cher had made a friend on board the shiD or taken a confederate with him from San Diego.; This man informed the authorities that the man they had picked out as Belcher was a San Diego business man on his way to Australia. The storv was believed and Belcher once more escaped arrest. The Call also has the following con cerning Captain Saunder's alleged con nection with the Belcher matter: Captain J. W. Saunders of the Man churia, who is in trouble with the Fed eral authorities over his naturalization nora n-ViiVi sro n iiAp-pri to nave been I " , , . . , . forged, may also find himself in trouble with the police when he returns from his present voyage to the Orient. When William Henry Belcher, the de faulting Mayor of Paterson, N. J., who has been located in Western Australia, came to this city he took passage on the Manchuria, representing himself as a preacher named Pilcher. Detective Ed Gibson was watching the passen gers boarding the steamship and ar rested Belcher from a photograph sent from New Jersey. Belcher was indig nant, claiming that his name was Pilcher, a preacher. He appealed to Captain Saunders and the captain told Gibson he had made a mistake, as he had known Pilcher for several years. On that positive statement Gibson al lowed Belcher to leave with trie steam ship. If Gibson had held his prisoner he would have been entitled to a reward of $25,000, which was offered for Bel cher's capture. f- OLD FISH MARKET FOR A NATAT0RIUM That large iron and glass pavilion once called the Honolulu Market, built at a cost of many thousand dollars, is now a source of . revenue amount ing to $10 a month, derived from a lonesome Japanese fish seller. The Legislature of 1903 caused an almost complete abandonment of this valuable property when it conceded to a Chi nese hui the right to sell fish on Ke- kaulike street. The wily Chinese euchered our unsophisticated Territori al fathers out of a handsome annual income. In order to make the best 01 a bad bargain it Vias been suggested by a resident of Honolulu to turn the structure into a natatorium, where the people can be given full indulgence in salt water bathing without growing to out-of-town places. Sea water could be pumped from a point near the reef and one or two plunge baths con structed in the center of the pavilion. Fifty or more private rooms for shower or tub baths could be introduced and a wide observation gallery at an ele vation of 20 feet made to run around the inside , of the entire structure. A salt water bath is a tonic in the morn ing and a sedative in the evening. It would be an ideal place for swimming exhibitions, with band concerts to en liven the events. Prices could be scal ed from 25 cents down to a nickel to reach the most indigent or to accord with the class of accommodation. Some private company could perhaps carry on such a business better than the Gov ernmentParadise of the Pacific. - THE MAILS.

The Coyne and Porter Furniture Comnanies May Unite. A consolidation of the firms of The Porter Furniture Company and the Coyne Furniture Company is being negotiated, to take place about the J first of the year. Should the deal be reached, a new- company would be formed with a cap ital of about $50,000. The business would probably be conducted in the corner store in the Alexander Young building now occupied by the Porter Furniture Company, The plans are to make a big con cern. HEALTH BOARD WILL VISIT (Continued from Page 1.) Board of Health respected and obeyed, they should only refer to those things that are cf grave importance and which, in a measure, public sentiment would assist; in other words, I mean those that can be practically enforced. Most of the regulations set forth in this paper might , prove very service able printed, on cards and distributed, the public being requested to comply with them in order to do away with the mosquitoes. But if they are made part of your Rules and Regulations and there is no way of enforcing them, would they .not then cause a loss of respect for the Board? On the other hand, an expression of the" Board of Health's opinion by a regulation which provides that all ponds and pools of water, tanks, re ceptacles, vases, cans, or anything capable of holding water, or other places in which mosquitoes are breed ing are causes of sickness and, there fore, declared nuisances would be to my mind a better course to follow. I do not see how you are going to invoke the authority of law you have . . ... . against a person if he vacates a prem- lses without emptying all the contain. ers of water or protecting the water closet or tank so that the mosquitoes can not breed therein. They are cer tainly not nuisances at the time he vacates the premises. But on the oth er hand, if you have a regulation which provides that, in case mosquitoes are breeding there, then it is a nuisance, t upon such an issue you might win out. Your Section 10 attempts to delegate the authority of the Board to sub ordinate officials, including the police officers of the counties. I doubt wheth- -W 1. f,l.l K UU C. UIMV1 IkJ, Your Section 11 provides that all taro fields found to be breeding places shall be reported to the Board of Health by the owners, occupiers, or officers of the Board of Health or counties, Such a regulation will hot make the; owners report any further than they do at present., and you have a statute already making it the duty of certain officials to report such matters. The remaining regulations in regard to the larvae-eating fish might be tak en by some to be a usurpation of leg islative functions, although, of course, they are excellent in themselves. G. R. CARTER. Governor. THE TERRITORY'S WARDS. Plans were submitted by the presi dent for three small cottages on the grounds formerly occupied by the Ka piolani Girls Home, adjoining the Ka- lihi Receiving Station. He said there nurnoer or ennaren tnat must be sup was probably sufficient lumber in the POIted. old building to furnish two-thirds of the necessary material. The Legisla ture appropriated $2000 for this pur pose. The object was to provide sax independent rooms where suspects could have complete privacy, if they de sired, until their condition was fully determined under the 'rules of the Board. It was voted that the president be authorized to proceed with the erection of the buildings. , On the advice of Mr. McVeigh, the Board denied the application of Lui Hoolapa to have his eighteen-year-old daughter sent to the Settlement as his kokua. She was not needed, the ap plicant's wife being now his kokua. Mrs. Kanamu Mokuhau's petition to have her married daughter, about forty years of age, as her kokua was granted. The petitioner had a com-, fortable home of her own at the Set tlement, she was a worthy woman and, being over seventy years of age, not likely to live much longer. Mrs. Hawea's petition for a kokua was also granted, as the relative she wanted was a butcher whose services were needed. Mr. McVeigh, in answer to ques tions, said he would forward a list of the kokuas at the Settlement. Many of them were useless, but could not be allowed to starve. "We can ndt eret rid of them," the superintendent said. "The Lunalilo Home won't take them. Some have been at the Settlement 'or twenty or t.weny-five years. What cm we tic with them?" The Kalaupapa Fishing Co. was al lowed on motion to establish a bakery at the Settlement. Mr. McVeigh said there were three bakeries there already. yet he did not see how the application should be refused. Many of the peo ple required soft bread rations. The new bakery would keep its owners Thomson's "Glove Fitting Corsets and have now a complete line in stock. We will be pleased to show this ex cellent line to our customers. R. BL0M anfers The Hawaiian Gazette Co. has, at considerate expense, succeeded in completing a limited numoer of sets of Planters' Monthlies from Vol. 1 of 1882 up to the first of the present year. Of the earlier numbers, long since out of print, many issues were entirely exhausted, making it necessary to reset and reprint all such numbers, thus adding materially to the cost. This extra expense was more than justified, however, by tlo valuable nature of much of the matter contained in the&o old numbers, matter that cannot be found elsewhere than in these books and that is valuable really beyond price to the plantation interests. These Planters are uniformly bound in full law sheep, giving them an attractive appearance in addition to their durability. Anyone desiring a complete set, or any part of a set, would do well to communicate with the Gazette Co. at an early date, as there are but very few sets available at the present time, and in order to complete more sets it will be necessary to reset and print more back numbers, thus increasing tht cost still more.

It would mean a survival of tne fittest and probably cheaper bread. president Pinkham reported that the t T-0,, "iC " na, Almost entirely by tneir own er- i forts and their common employes, en- larged tne accommodations or the Home and were now prepared to re ceive all the girl children at the Set tlement. He had directed Dr. Goodhue to make an examination of the chil dren, and that all found clean be sent to Honolulu within sixty days. "This course will strain the resources of the Home," the president's message read, "for the appropriation granted by the Legislature never contemplated the "The Boys' Home should have our attention at the earliest possible mo ment. We are obliged to delay a few monins, as tne appropriation win not carry through the fiscal period." SANITARY MATTERS. The president gave a summary of sanitation work in Honolulu and Hilo for September. The reports of Dr. J. S. B. Pratt, chief sanitary officer and Inspector of cemeteries, for Au gust and September were read. For the past month, of seven nuisances re ported five had been abated. Seven applications for restaurant licenses were approved. A lodging house li cense, with room for 63 persons, was approved. There had been thirty-six inspections of graves, with several ex posures of old coffins noted. One con viction for nuisance was obtained and, while sentence was under suspension, the nuisance was abated by the of fender. Praise was bestowed by the president on the excellent work done in Hilo during the month. The w-ork of the Honolulu inspectors for September consisted of 7350 in spections, 1531 orders finished out of 1622 given, 16 permits for keeping 415 pigs granted, also four permits for keeping 600 ducks, and 36 1-4 days of special duty performed. Under Inspector Bowman at Hilo 1200 inspections were made and 262 orders given and carried out. The number of traps set in Hilo was 1820 and pieces of poisoned food placed 3338, and 281 rats were caught, 1729 pieces of poison ed food taken and 50 rats found dead. There had been 960 inspections under the mosquito crusade, in Hilo, 534 ap plications of oil made. 165 gutters cleaned, eight pools filled in and six d rained off. The Nuuanu water had received the department's attention and, the presi- 99 THOMSON'S GLOVE-FITTINST HABIT-HIP CORSETS .J fh FROGPFS3 BnCLZ, FORT STivriET. 1 -W 1 ' T 1 ' ' ' ' T ' ' ' T T T m . ....

From an informal talk on this sub ject, it appeared that the insanitary places are two in the neighborhood of" Liliha and Vineyard streets and one in the Kewalo section. The president said a visitation of the places would take an hour and a half. He had the papers already prepared for- i the condemnation of one place.
