The poisons of the Hawaiian limits have thus far received little attention from scientists. The one man win) was bettor informel in this direction than any other is dead and as far as is known he has left no work on the fiubject. In the line of bis duty as ttic chemist to the board of health. Dr. Shorey has rmi up against a poison he doesn't for i.clencc be is not only an hoiiMt man. but a comiArtent one. When yetari nrternoon. Dr. Sbofei' said: ''it will be tomorrow before I can tell positively the ingredients of the Honor taken by the three dead men. I - Mv however, that the stuff is methy lated snirlts. added to which is a fusion J of a brew from some plant. Just what stuff it is, is the rub. As is probably well known, a poisonous drug may be distilled from numerous Hawaiian Ilani6. Portuguese know these, and almost every mnn has some particular con- coction with which to fortify his wines, making a secret preparation from it. The difficulty in the way is that the native plants have been little studied along thi line. Few of them have been classified awl made known to science. The root of llie oleander and some others we know very well as supplying a poisonous druc. but many plants we know little or Hrotbtye about. 1 do not believe that spirits killed the men. If the concoction was straight wood alcohol it might have done it, but there is probably of wood alcohol in not ovor 10 pr cent ' it. the remainder being water, honey and .. . . .!,!.. fiwinn nf which I HIP ivptii"v , have siwken. It will be my duty to determine the exact character of this poison ami to find out. if possible, from what plaat .t comes. I expect to be able to do this by tomorrow, although the process xawst necessarily be slow.' That's the report of a scientist. He bas found the poison. What is it? That Is not so readily ascertained, means warn- tests and save as to its tosic effects, disappointment even then, perhaps. The Republican covered the story fully yesterday. It has found no reason to chance Its judgment, though it has beeu hardily criticised for telling the truth. And it told the truth and only the truth. Two classes of people only seemed to be hurt, the remnant of the old plague loard of health and the police, whose old ideas it seems to bo impossible to They will not get intq line either with modern methods or modern thought. The police are especially sore. Cbillingworth. whom we really regard as the best of the outfit, met a representative of The Republican' on Friday and said: "The story The Republican had about the Portuguese deaths was a damn lie. You can't prove that the protected Silva. 1 have been work ing night and day for seven days to get at the bottom of this and I know that The' Republican is wrong. 1 will make it hot for the man who wrote that article. It's a lie." . Mr. Taylor of the Advertiser appeared tthis moment and proceeded to say- that whatever Mr. cuiiunswonn was true; that his won! was as good as an affidavit and that in all his experience in reporting in Honolulu be never bad thought of going behind the statements of Mr. Cbillingworth. The unsophisticated uepumirau ventured to suggest In the face 5 5" Two assailants that the lamented Silva had sold wines at retail for a number 0f vcars and that such fact was common 'knowledge among his country, men; that he received as W r which he changed for gold at he Utile cery on f! Chilliugworth said, -It's all a lie, and Brother Taylor said be believed what- ever Cbillingworth said Avas U i truth. The Republican has never called Mr. ins to the iople judge between his action and the statements of certain newspapers and critics" he is like Pratt has been a sutordmate. of the old He has Iteen a mere creature plague board. He was never considered of sufficient importance to le noticed, though memoranda have been kept on i.: ...,v- Atnnir with other interestins i undoubtedly, be sub of these days. There jected to review one is a suspicion that lie was iiui aw''"' wdelv on bis merits to suceeed Garvin though that should not iu itself warrant the possession of much merit or capacity but to keep the thing "in .... m;iv" His assistant was appoint ed as sanitary officer and so, despite the rcsienations of the numerous plague the "new" board is "spiked" at every turn. This is what Dr. Pratt said after the editorial hawser of the Star was placed about his neck: "The old man Silva had !een ill for six years. For a long timC'fce' bad not had n pliywcsan. I saw him after death and investigated die i.mm what I found out I was ,,,,v;npeit in mv own mind of the cause of death and believed then, and believe now, that there was no need for n coroner's inquiry nor an autopsy. Ihc ,i,ro.. snliseouent deaths resulting from liquor taken in that house, may appear the oricinnl case, to cast suspicion upon think ttie incis uear m.. but 1 do not nnv such conclusion. "I reccivetl iwsitive evidence trom a man living in the nurseryman's house that the latter bad taken nothing for three davs but tea.

"As to the drink taken by the otner three men, 1 feel positive that it was a preparation used by the old mnn to strengthen his .wines.

"It was plain to my mind that the man died of natural causes. 1 do not think there can be the slightest suspicion of anything else. I believe in nnd coroners' inquiries, and certainly would see that they are car-;..,i ..nJ when necessary. Our facilities limited, however, and it nnd money are is essentia! that care should be exercised in not running iu cases when the cause of death is plain." What everyone wants in this and mi verv nronosition is the truth. -- - - . Dr. Pratt is given the benent oi oai he'savs in a spirit of fair play. The Republican has nothing to add nor subtract from what it said yesterday. If what was then said, what w accredited to Dr. Pratt, was not and is not true, Jie has ample remedy at law against the Garvin squirm. Dr. paper. Dr. may Pratt may protest and the licksplittles in their train may" denounce, but that the loard of health proved itself incompetent and inefficient stands. The Republican has evidence that Silva did drink something else than tea r .,., .invs before his death. On Monday be called in a lady friend to he nan nueu iur take a drink. fWhen glasses he jokingly sa,i: ? think I'd poison you; I'll drink first. Vnd he draiued his glass. Dr. Pratt mav not have known this Dr. Pratt he has no scent for is not a reporter; -. ,,., .ho board of education says he has a decided uose for some other things. The jurv on the body of Joaquin Bilva will convene and take testimony as soon as the cause of death is known. This jury cannot expand the inquiry too far to suit The Republican, ana it . pleased to lend it every aid.
