Comrrmnicatioii Between Southern
Viceroys and Peking, Yet Nothing
Can Be Learned of
NKNV YORK, July 21. A Sun cable from
ivs: There is one explanation of the Peking
which so accords with Oriental
i'. European governments the greatest concern. It is
to bear in mind that all the news of the past ten
d.iys tended to show there exists a dominant, ruthless mind
m Peking which is controlling the situation with absolute
authority and diabolical cleverness. Belated letters from
public and private sources in China, including the French
uud Japanese Mirlslers, tell of a suspicion or conviction of
the writers that son e gipi Hie and ferocious plot is being
c Jiibummatcd. It is known and confessed by Chinese
themselves that there is free communication between this
arbiini y authority at the capital, whatever and whoever it
in and the Viceroys throughout the empire. Hostilities
a-.' linst Russia, undertaken with thorough military
.n and the action of Li Hung Chang, the wiliest of them
ail, justifies the suspicion that he is carefully playing an
aligned part in plans to iling the utmost resources of Asia
asiiiiust the Western world.
There is no reason to doubt that master minds at
the capital are fully aware of the great preparations the
powers are making to crush them. They know, or they
believe it probable, that no Chinese force will be able to
resist the great army which is assembling for invasion. At
all events they are quite clever enough to appreciate the
.ehantage of meeting this force if it should advance prematurely
and with only its partial strength. The strongest
suspicion is directed against Li Hung Chang. Bis professions
of friendliness toward foreigners and his general good
faith are completely discredited in many quarters. This
h.is led the British government to dispatch a man-of-war to
.accompany him, and there is little doubt that substantial
guarantees will be required of him before he is allowed to
proceed to Peking.

BRUSSELS, July 25. The Foreign
Office to-day received the following dis
"SHANGHAI, July 25. Li Hung
Chang told me that the Chinese government
was arranging to guarantee
the retirement of foreigners in Peking
toward Tientsin. DE CARTIER,"
De Cartler is secretary of the Belgian
legation at Peking.
LONDON, July 26. The Shanghai
correspondent of the Daily Express,
telegraphing yesterday, says:
"As the result of a constant correspondence
with the Governor of
Shantung, Li Hung Chang this
announced that the imperial gov
ernment was prepared at any moment
to give a safe convoy to tho members
of the foreign Jegations from Peking
to Tientsin, provided guarantee were
given that no advance would be made
upon the capital, and that all matters
in dispute between China and the powers
would be made the subject of
friendly negotiations. In tho same
communication of the consuls Earl Li
stated that the imperial government
had submitted to the powers a statement
of Its position, declaring that it
had suffered greatly by recent events,
but desired not only to suppress rebellion
but also to remove the causes of
the hostility of foreign powers. Therefore
he hoped that the offer to escort
the foreigners to Tientsin would be
regarded as an earnest desire of the
Chinese government for tho renewal
of friendly relations,
"The consuls replied that no basis
for friendly negotiation was possible
until proof was at hand that the Ministers
were still living. Consul Warren
declined to discuss the matter at all.
but in his reply to the French consul
Li Hung Chang undertook to obtain
a satisfactory message from the French
Minister (M. Pichon) wiUiin Ave days."
Rumor circulates briskly around the
personality of Li Hung Chang. He is
credited with a mission to offer to cede
to the allied powers two provinces as
Indemnity for the Peking outrages, and
also to offer to restore order and give
facilities for trade with the outside
world on condition of the surrender mI
Kiaochau, and Manchuria
by the powers, and the withdrawal of
all missionaries. Little attention, however,
need be paid to any of these rumors.
In a private message from
Shanghai it is asserted that Li Hung
Chang avows that the object of his
journey is to place the regular Chinese
army In line with the allied troops for
the suppression of the Boxers.
The Times editorially suggests that
Li Hung Chang is playing the old game
of the Sublime Porte by putting forward
proposals which will appear in

Judge Humphreys was engaged yesterday
in hearing arguments in the
suit brought by Superintendent of
Public Works J. A. McCandless agaiust
the Hawaiian Tramways Company, for
an injunction restraining the company
from laying tracks on King street.
There was a big array of legal tal
ent present. The government was represented
by Deputy1 Attorney-General
Cathcart and Frederick W. Hanker.
Paul Neumann, F. M. Hatch and W. L
Stanley appeared for the tramways
Mr. Hankey, at the afternoon session
of the court, made an able argument
for the government He cited numerous
authorities to show that the government
bad the full right, power and
control of the streets of Honolulu.
The tramways company at all tunes
was under the direction of the Superintendent
of Public Works. The government
owned the streets In fee. Tno
company, under the act of the Legislature,
had more than a license. It had
vested rights for a eertain number of
years. But where the company's track
should be laid was wholly optional
with the government. Tho government,
being the owner in fee of the
streets, it could do away with sidewalks
if it so desired-felt- could order
the tramways company to lay its track
in the center of tbe street or on either
side of the thoroughfare.
The plea set up by the company in
one of its affidavits, or in the affidavit
of its manager, that the track, it laid
where the Superintendent of Streets
had directed, would encroach on the
sidewalk, was a plea of avoidance.
With charming banter Mr. Hankey alluded
to the humanitarianism of the
company as set forth in this plea.

now three cases at the camp.
Dr. Hoffmann, the bacteriologist for the Board of Health. Is attending
the patients, and every precaution is being taken, to minimize
the danger of contagion a-.-d to stamp out the dread disease.
Sanitary Inspector Mr.'clgh visited the home yesterday. An inspection
or the premises developed that buildings and surroundings
were in a most unsanitary condition.
"The buildings are old and dilapidated, and cesspools and sewage
are neglected and wholly inadequate," said Mr. McVeigh. "There
was nothing to be done but to cove the entire establishment which
we have done. We moved all the sirls, twenty-three in number, and
the four Sisters of St Francis, wtio have had charge of the school,
to Kalihi camp. There they are rcelring every care and attention,
and I am glad to say that the cases now on hand are promising well.
Nothing will be left undone to crush out the disease."
The Board of Health, at a special meeting held yesterday, received
a report on the prevalence of the disease, and the Inspector and
health officers were given full power to act in the premises.

The Board of Health bad an innings

but it was too much for the members.
Tho size of the pile of bills was so
wholly out of proportion to the balance
iu the treasury wherewith to meet
the charges that it seemed to give the
usually active and aggressive gentlemen
of the board "that tired reeling."
And little wonder. There were 12,000
of these bills on the table, and clerk
Wilcox said there were more in the
drawer, with soveral outlying districts
to be heard from. Thou it was found
that no ono had ever tabulated thee
bills and the cleverest financier on the
board would not venture even a guess

Then the board talked tho matter
over nud the conference did not dispel

It was learned that there was some
thing like $20,000 left iu tho Tuud to
pay the bills. Tho bontimeut seemed
to bo genorai that it would uot be fair
to pay n part of these bills, up to tho
limit of the balance ou hand, and then
reject all tho rest. It was thought best
to nicertnin tho oxact amount represented
by the claims and pay a
pro rata amount; with this ideaiu mind,
the bills were referred to tho Executive
officer, with request that he arrauge

It seems that the trustees of

old cemetery as a town site. They
made application to the board for permits
for tho erection of buildings in
said cemetery. The trustees' desire
is to increase the revenuo from the
property. The members of tho board
exhibited a tendency to discourage
this unexpected and unwonted evidence
of enterprise. The idea of restoring
an old cemetery into city lots
was so novel a proposition that it caused
tho board to pause. They wanted
to know the date of the last interment,
tho condition of the graves, the extent
of the excavations, tho size, stylo
and general character of the buildings
to be erected. As answers to all these
queries were not forthcoming. Clerk
Wilcox was directed to get at all the
facts and present the same to the
board at its next meeting.
An opinion by Atttoruoy General
Dolo was read, iu which he held that
the auditor erred in refusing to audit
the bills of Drs. Hoffman, Garvin and

The auditor had refused to audit the
bills. The Attorney General's opinion
is to the effect that the claim should be
paid, as the position taken by the auditor
was contrary to law. The board
