former handling the motions. He read
the call for the meeting issued by the
chamber, another identical call having
aiso been issued by the merchants' as
sociation. .1. K". O.iH then opened the discus
sion bv i,roin into the history of
the si'e matter, preparatory to
introducing a resolution. The
Mahuka. site, he explained, had been
acquired and ,'in..apprortation made by
the federal government for the con
struction of a public building thereon.
At the last session of congress, acting
on the views of the treasury depart
ment that this was too small a site,
congress appropriated $3-iiUiO for the
purchase of more land, the amount, he
understood, to be taken from the -toO.-000
appropriated for the construction of
Mr. Gait felt that it would be con
ceded by many that the additional land
could not be secured for $3."0.0mi, that,
condemnation proceedings would have
to be started and that the matter might
ultimately be taken before the United
States Supreme Court for settlement.
It was felt that if such proceedings
were 'commenced there will be a long
delay before anything definite could or
would be accomplished with the build
ing. Another building site was now of
fered, and Kudolph Spreckels. he said,
would speak upon the matter. Mr.
Spreckels had made an offer on behalf
of the Spreckels estate to the effect
that in view of the possibility of the
abandonment of the present site, the
Spreckels property could be offered as
a substitute, as it was near the Mahuka
site and close to the proposed extension
of Bishop street. If the business
community selects the Spreckels prop
erty as the second choice, then Mr.
Spreckels was willing to hold the prop
erty for a definite period of time. The
offering of the Spreckels property was
not with the idea of effecting a change
in the site for the building. Mr. Gait
then read Mr. Spreckels' offer, ad
dressed to James F. Morgan and W. F.
Dillingham, which was as follows:
On behalf of the trustees of the
' Estate of Claus Spreckels, I beg to
inform you that if the lot belong
ing to said estate, situate on the
makai Waikiki corner of Merchant
street and the extension of Bishop
street, containing about 57.6ol
square feet, is desired by the Uni
ted States Government as a site
for a federal building, the trustees
of said estate will at any time be-
' fore the first day of April, 1911, ac-
cept the sum of two hundred and
fifty thousand ($-.j0,imtj) dollars
therefor; provided that the two
above named associations approve
this day of the above described site
as their second choice, in the event
of the Mahuka site being aban
doned for any reason.
Mr. Gait then stated that he wished
to emphasize the statement that there
was no wish to abandon the present
site, but the Spreckels property was
offered in case there should be an aban
donment altogether of the Mahuka site.
He then offered a resolution, seconded
by W. H. Mclnerny, as follows:
Whereas. Congress has appropriated
an amount not to exceed .3."u,ooo for
the purchase of additional ground space
for a federal building in Honolulu, and
Whereas, The additional space desire 1
consists of ground end buildings ad
joining the Mahuka site and located
on ;h,. Waikiki side of Fort between
King and Merchant streets, and
Whereas. It seems doubtful that said
property can be secured for the amount
of said appropriation, in which event
further action will have To be taken bv
congress with the possibility of long
delay covering possildv a number of

11. W. Shingle offered an amendment
i to be inserted in the "Be it resolved"

lows: "Or failing this, to Lave the

i property already acquired by the i'e.l-

j "Ju other words." he said, "if we
tail to acquire the additional property,
we recommend that the government re
main on the original Mahuka site."
.1. A. Kennedy wanted to know what
a "reasonable length of time was.'"'
Cecil Brown, for answer, said that we
not dictate to the United States
eminent as to what might be con-
sidered. a reasonable length of time.
We have to wait tiie action of the sec
retary of the treasurv and also of our
.Delegate to congress. It was up to the

Cecil Brown, then seconded Shingle's
amendment. He believed everything
should be done as far as possible to
gain the additional area on the Mahu
ka site block for .ftjoii.oiMl, and if that
cannot be done, to fall back upou the
original, or present, Mahuka site. Fail
ing in this, then of course Mr. Spreck
els oiler might be considered second
Mr. Gait said he was very glad to
accept the Shingle amendment, as it
was the intention of the mover of the
resolution to adhere fo the original site.
Mr. McCaiuMess wanted to know if
Spreckels' offer included the oly tele
phone corner and was informed that it
diil not. Mr. Paris said that Mr.
Spreckels was conferring with Mr.
Hendricks, owner of the corner at that
moment, and hoped to get the corner.
If he did he would take care of Mr.
Hendricks on the opposi' corner which
Spreckels also owned.
James Steiner made some objection
to recommending another site, as he
was one among several who had sub
scribed money to. open up Bishop street
along the line of the present Mahuka
site. If the additional area could not,
be procured, then keep to the original
site, was his idea.
Mr. Shingle explained that in offer
ing the amendment he did so in order
to protect Mr. Steiner and several
others whom he had solicited for sums
aggregating $1S,000 to put through the
Bishop street extension. Mr. Spreckels
put in about of this. He felt it
his duty to protect those who had made
these contributions. "I feel we should
fight to the last ditch for the present
Mr. Gait said there was no question
of changing the Mahuka site. "We
ought to have it, and I am prepared to
fight for it," he said amid applause.
"If for any reason, the government
decides to abandon this site then we
want: to be in a position to show our
further wishes in the matter of a site."
Mr. Kennedy came back with a re
quest about the "reasonable length of
time" and suggested that six months
was hardly enough time for the Spreck
els option. Mr. Gait. agreed with him.
He said he was surprised when he read
Mr. Spreckels' letter to see that date
set that was so near.
L. A. Thurston supported Mr. Gait in
his contention in favor of adhering to
the original Mahuka site. He felt that
to express any second choice preference
at all weakened their position. He
said he was originally in favor of the
Irwin site, but the Mahuka site was
selected. It did not seem sound to him
to weaken their support of the Mahuka
site by declaring now in favor of a
second site. 1 the Mahuka site is
finailv abandoned he did not want to
be on record as favoring the Spreckels
site when he believed yet in the Irwin
site. If the Mahuka site was put out
of the running then let all the other
sites be brought forward, lie did not
want to complicate the Mahuka site
bv bringing in others at the present
W. H. Mclnerny spoke about certain
parties speaking to him about leasing
i portions of the Spreckels estate. Mr.
Spreckels is willing to lease. lien it
was proposed to abandon the Mahuka
site and he was asked if he would
make an optional offer of his property
he was willing to do so. Mr. Spreckels
was willing to hold tiie property unen
cumbered until a definite time.. Mr.
Spreckels assured him that Hendricks
was disposed to deal with him in regard
to the comer property.'
Mr. Thurston said he was acting as
Mr. Spreckels' attorney in this and
other matters, but this had not deterred
him fiom voicing his own objection fo
wants to makt.

enough to secure the remainder of the.
block. But he was inclined to believe
it was. There were two questions; the
first was whether we should indicate a
second choice or not; would that weak
en the fight for what seems to be the
first choice. Would it not be embar
rassing to us in the future to indicate
a second choice. Every one knows the
next session of congress is the short
one, lasting until March 4. 1SH1, and
these condemnation proceedings can not.
be brought before that time. Spreckels
offer holds good to April 1. it seems
that nothing could be done until the
following cotigiessioual session ami it
wuld be a year and a half before con
gress can authorize a second site.
lie felt that the community should
avoid taking snap judgment p.bout In
dicating a second choice. He was not
present to advocate a particular site.
There was. a present Mahuka site al
ready obtained. And then he named
over the various other sites that could
be used 'the Trwin, Allan. Spreckels
and Bishop sites. The whole opera
house, or Irwin block might be taken
in for the site, an admirable place in
keening with the attempt to make a
Money Might Revert.
Frank Dodge asked if the $3.d,000
would be available for another site.
The Governor thought it would revert
to congress if it was not used for the
Manuka site extension Mr. Dodge was
in favor of taking what we now have.
Mr MeClollan said there was some
misapprehension as to what can be
done. Congress has appropriated moiiey
for the first site and acquired it and
then has passed a law to proceed to
acquire by condemnation another por
tion of the block. Court proceedings
will be begun at an early date. Xo
transfer of this money can be made to
a different site without special action
bv congress and nothing would be done
bv congress unless it had the sanction
of the 'Delegate. This whole appropria
tion w;is the particular work of the
Delegate, due to his personal influence
with the members of the public build
ings committee. That being the case
it is obvious that congress is not going
to change the site except upon the ap
proval of the Delegate. When he felt
convinced he knew what the public
here wanted he acted. But if there is
diverse opinion I do not think he would
move for a change of site. He had had
manv interviews with the supervising
architect and the treasury secretary
about the building and site. It should
be kept in mind, he said, that the area
of the Mahuka site was about oO.OOi)
square feet. The only object of the
federal government in asking for this
additional area was for the purpose of
having more room to build a larger
"If congress wishes the building on
the original site if the additional
grounds can not be obtained," he said,
"they would proceed with the con
struction of the building on the site al
Shock to Congress. i
"I think the Delegate would be glad
to be informed of the question of
whether, if you can not get the addi
tional area, you would be willing to
keep to the original site. I believe an
expression from this community that
it would rather proceed on the original
site, would be proper. If the commun
ity doesn't want the larger building I
think the Delegate would like to know.
It would shock congress probably to
have a community turn back an ap
propriation for a public building, but
if that is to be the state of affairs
here, congress and the Delegate would
be glad to know it. It was a matter
of some surprise around congress that
Honolulu should have gotten such a big
appropriation for a public building con
sidering the size of the city."
In answer to a query from A. Lewis.
Jr.. Mr. McClellan said that in his judg
ment, if the community decided that it
wanted the building to remain on the
smaller site that could be done and the
government would proceed to build the
Mr. Spreckels came m at this moment
and said that his offer did not include
the Hendricks corner, as Hendricks was
not willing to accept the price offered
him. As to the leng'Ji of the option
Mr. Spreckels said he could hardly be
justified in making it longer as it was
part of an estate.
J. A. McCandless said he was for the
Mahuka site enlarged, but the Mahuka
site if it could not be enlarged, and
not for any third choice.
A vote was taken on thp resolution
to table and this carried 37 to S.
A question arose as to whether the
resolution was really downed, and this
was cut short by Mr. Gait, with the
consent of his second. Cecil Brown,
And therefore, the two organizations
stand pledged for the enlarged Mahuka
site, with the present Mahuka site
without the enlarged area as second

Comic Opera Sultan Coming.
But this will be the Sultan of Sulu's
first visit to Honolulu. lie is an inter
esting character and has been launched
to fame through the medium of a comic
opera entitled "-The Sultan of Sulu."
The little Sultan met the first Americans
who invaded the Philippines in the
barbaric garments of his sultandom,
but he is returning home in the latest
cut of clothing turned out of Bond's.
It is quite likely that the local army
officers will take an interest in him, as
many have had occasion to greet the
little Sultan in his homeland while
thev were on duty there.
lie has sold about $200,000 worth of
pearls since leaving Sululand and up
to the time he left Cherbourg. He
intends hiring American schoolteachers
with a part of the pearl money to go
to Sululand and teach his young sub
jects the American vernacular.
He indignantly denies that "he has
more than one Wife. He did have four
at one time, not two hundred, as he has
been credited with having; and four
were quite enough.
With the Sultan is his brother and
heir apparent. The brother is Datto
Rajah Muda Miulail Wasit. His suite

Xew York because they had to travel

They were the Hadji Guian, the Had

Prophet, and hence a Sulu gentleman
The Sultan and his brother were at

brown cutawav suits, gray bow ties and
wore the Hai "fez, called the eopya. The

the Seventeenth Fnited States Infantry
and upon the expiration of his enlist
ment became a schoolteacher in the
islands. Later he became useful to the
Sultan as interpreter.
The Sultan explained that while he
once received an income totaling about
.ii-,iijioii as revenues from the pearl
fisheries and other industries, as well
as from the Spanish government and
hi- own people, his resources were re
duced to a yearly salary of -foUOO from

substance, which he has termed 'Kas
tin' and which has been previously
tried by us. with negative results.
"We gave several of our patients
chaulmoogra oil in increasing doses, in
some eases we accomplished this by in
halations of ozone. We observed, as
many investigators have before, some
patients while taking chaulmoogra oil,
show a marked improvement in their
general condition, and one of our pa
tients, an early case, apparently recov
ered while taking this remedy, and was
discharged by the board of health as
cured. It is doubtful whether we can
ascribe this result to the chaulmoogra
oil or not, for it jLs equally probable
that this case was one of the arrested
types, as others have observed them.
"In a few experiments with potas
sium of iodide we were able to satisfy
ourselves of the observations, so often
made by other investigators, namely
that in some cases of leprosy, potas
sium of iodide, when administered in
full doses, causes very similar reac
tions to those observed when tubercu
lin is given to a leper, i. e., fever,
malaise, etc. That such is not always
the case, however, is shown by the
fact that one of our patients, receiving
such treatment, did not react even at
doses of 100 grams.
"We believe that potassium of iodide
as well as chaulmoogra oil deserve fur
ther investigation in the ' treatment of
leprosy, that neither of them is often
curative, but they may be a valuable
adjunct to some form of specific treat
ment, which the cultivation of the
lepra bacillus outside of the human
body now permits us to hope for.
"We have tried minute doses of
tuberculin, but are unable to perceive
any beneficial results. Large doses of
this substance have, of course, been
often tried in the past in the treat
ment of leprosy and, like potassium of
iodide, apparently make the patients
worse, but certain investigators believe
that this may only be apparent, as it
is held in the case of potassium, and
urge a further trial of tuberculin.
"Another work which has been suc
cessfully undertaken during the past
year is the cultivation of the baeillus
of leprosy on artificial media by the
method advocated by Mr. Moses T.
Clegg. -while serving at Manila. This
success is of great significance in so
far as it permits us now to manufacture
a vaccine from the infecting organism,
and in fact, such vaccine lias already
been prepared by this station and the
administration of same on patients,
under our care was commenced recent
ly. At j. resent we have only adminis
tered a few small doses and therefore
are not able to make any reports as
yet on the effects obtained from this
"As aforesaid, the treatment on the
patients at Kalawao had to be aban
doned, owing to the closure of the Ka
lawao station. It is hoped, however,
that sufficient funds will be appropriat
ed by congress, for the next fiscal year,
to permi; tin increase in the scientific
force, to undertake even the most im
portant parts of the problems which
the cultures of the bacillus of leprosv
have made possible."
