A representative of the New York Board of Health has Just returned from a trip abroad , made for the purpose of Investigat ing a new German remedy that Is said to be almost a certain cure for diphtheria , says Harper's Weekly. His report Is so enthusi astic that our authorities are to be asked to establish a laboratory for development of the remedy here. The outcome will be awaited with anxious Interest by every one who fully understands how much Is at stake. Diphtheria Is the moat malignant member cf a Email group of contagious diseases ( the other members being scarlet fever , measles and whooping cough ) whose virulence Is In a measure masked by their very familiarity. These diseases are never altogether absent from centers of population. Year by year they cause thousands of deaths , yet their presence excites little popular comment. They are responsible for the death of every sixth child under 5 yeais of age and every twelfth person of any age who dies In New York City. In the decade 1S82-1S91 this quartet of dis eases claimed 36,042 victims In that city. During the name period thobc dreaded dis eases , smallpox , typhus fever and cholera , killed but GG3. Two years ago there \vas much ado because typhus fever seemed to have gained a foothold in the city. That much-heralded disease caused forty deaths ; diphtheria , unheralded , cause.l 1,436. Last year there was no little apprehension In some quarters because smallpox was mildly epidemic In the city , cla'mlng a few victims who by their folly or Ignorance had Invited It. Yet the smullpcx , during the decade 1SS3-1S92 , caused only 333 deaths In the city ; diphtheria caused 15,030. Thanks to sanitary science , typhus may be held t bay. Thanks to Jenner , the terrors of smallpox nro only traditional. But the terrors of diphtheria are still real and ever-present. For so.ne years , however , medical science has looked forward hopefully to the conquest of diphtheria. Ten years ago the bacillus that causes the disease was discovered. The bacilli lodged In the throat , as a rule pro duce ptomaines or other toxlnes , that enter the circulation and poison the system. These toxlnes may be developed In media other than the human body , and "attenuated" by culti vation. Experiments of some years' standing prove that attenuated virus , Injected Into the circulation of animals In varying strengths , produces diphtheria of varying degrees of virulence , and that such virus may even cure diphtheria previously estab lished , It remained to make the application to the human subject. Apparently this has now been done , and If the reports arc to be crsdltcd , diphtheria will soon take Us place beside smallpox and hydrophobia behind the vlctnrlous chariot of prjventatlve medicine. Meantime , a word of caution may not be amiss. In their laudable anxiety to benefit the race , workers In tilts , as In other fields , sometimes let thotr Imagination outstep their actual achievements. It was sea , few years ago , when the public was led to believe that a sure cure for tuberculosis had been dis covered , whereas. In reality , only an Im portant , not a llnnl , step toward such a (11 E- covcry had been made. The originator of the new diphtheria remedy Is the same Dr. * Koch who developed tuberculin. Dr. Koch Is a scientist of scientists. Tuberculin was a disappointment , not because Its dis coverer claimed too much for It , but be cause his followers .claimed more than the msster thought of < 'fclalmlng.lt Is to be ho.-cd that the same mistake will not be repeated with the present remedy. Let enthusiastic follower * make sure thut they are keeping step with the originator of the remedy , and that they are not making : us expect too much of It at first. There can be no question that the work of Dr. Koch and others with the toxlnes of germ diseases Is along- right lines. In th ? end Us results arc sure. But we must be patient with tentative efforts. Should the diphtheria remedy do but half what Is hoped for It , Its volus wll | still be Inestimable. Even falling short of this , If It has any potency whatever. Itwill be , like tuberculin , an Inspiring token of the time to come when preventatlvo medi cine will ccpo successfully with every con tagious disease , vanquishing each one In turn by means of preventatlvo..inoculatlonn , as It has already vanquished smallpox. But the public cannot be- expected to realize this , and the remedy which accomplishes less than Is promised will bo accounted a failure. It Is far better that little should be promised If there Is the slightest question as to what can be performed. In view of the lesson In Eelf-restralnt that nas taught the enthusi asts by tuberculin , however , we are Justified In hoping that nothing has been claimed for the diphtheria remedy that a trial of the remedy Itself will not Immediately Justify. In that event the origination of this remedy will easily take rank among the most 1m- vortont discoveries of this generation , Court Culling * . With the exception of Judges Hopewell and Walton , all of the members of the dis trict bench were In their accustomed places yesterday , and they spent the time solely In the interest o ( the attorneys , calling de faults , entering motions and passing upon cxparte matters and In a general way cleaning up the delayed business that had accumulated from the lajt term of court. Judge Keysor returned from bis trip to Washington county , wherehe has been holdIng - Ing the regular fall term , and at once took up the work upon , his docket , dlspoilng of several unimportant matters. In Judge Scott's court the city flump case , with all cf the attending Issues , was. brought up for consideration , but owing to the absence of Attorney Patrick , who rep-e- scnts the garbage hauleri , the case was con tinued until one week from Monday , in the meantime the Board of Health will see to It that the dumping grounds at the tool of Poppleton avenue nro kept In a. good con dition.

The ordinance recently Introduced by Ccuncliman Elsasser providing for the sub mission of a proposition to vote $200,000 In bonds for the construction of a municipal electric light plant has been Indefinitely post poned , pending the settlement of the I'latte canal proposition. The Introduction of the ordinance has aroused considerable Interest In the question , however , and some figuring has been done with a view to ascertalnlnR the probable expense of construction of such a plant as would be necessary to suit the requirements of the city. According to the figures of City Electrician Schurlg.the amount proposed to be voted would bo Insutnftltrlt ! for the purpose and ho Is emphatlcallyviin ) favor of delaying any affirmative nctlonuntll ; the fate of the canal Is settled. If Hid 'canal should become n reality the electric current would bo avail able with butt 1(116 ( expense beyond tlmt connected with > . llo- placing of wires .ind poles , and the 'expansive steam plant tint would have to bo-'Constrncted If the matter was taken up noivvould be altogetlrr un necessary. The Hteam planttcauld net to put n for I si than $75,000 , as the very best compound condensing or triple expansion engines would bj required to furnlih ths2 000-horse power necessary to run' the Immense dynamos. But the line construction represents the most cxpenslve' > feature of the prosp.ctlve plant. At the ( present time there arc , not fftr from ,375miles , tot electric light wltlng | n the city. Alii sorts of Wire Is used , running - " - ning from 00 to''No. S , but No. I Is the slz * generallyi used. This wire costs $240 per mile , and , allowing nn additional 5 per cent for slack , makes the cost of the wire $250 per mile , or $08,750 for the entire plant. To this must be udded the cost ot placing It on the poles , which Is about $45 per mile , or $12,375. The poles also constitute a heavy Item of expense. It Is estimated that there are-about 1,700 poles In the- city that are used ex clusively for electric light wires. Most ot these are fifty-foot poles , which cost $7.C'J ' each , but In many cases sixty and seventy- foot poles are necessary and these run up as lilgh as $20. The hauling and setting of the poles Is nt least $ G each and In conic cabes , where there Is a tall polo to be set on a downtown corner , It Is nearly twlca that sum. Taking the minimum estimate In each case the total cost of each pole after It is placed In position Is $13.50 , whlchy multiplied by 1,700 , gives $22,950. ( It thus appears that the total cost of con structing the line Is $103,075 , exclusive of the costly steam plant , dynamos , purchase of site and construction cf building. Upon this showing the $200,000 named In the ordlnanca would be wholly Inadequate for the project and It Is the general sentiment that tlu > matter should bo suffered to drop until the result of the vote on the canal proposition is assured , The construction of the canal as contem plated would practically cut the cost of the electric light plant In two , Mr. Schurlg says that the current by which the power was transmitted from the penstocks would con stitute an alternating current which could be directly utilized In furnishing electric light. Consequently neither the engines , boilers nor dynamos would be required and much of the complicated and expensive elec trical machinery would bo dispensed with. The only machinery , required would bo the converters and a switch-board at the power < house , which could be located at some point In the central part of the city , thus simpli fying the circuits to a great extent and ef fecting a material saving In power. Another valuable consideration Is Indi cated , which consists In the fact that the wires entering buildings need not bo charged with the present high potential cur rent , thus doing away with a great deal of the danger of conflagration Each arc light requires a power of about fifty volts and by means of the converters the wires could be charged with Just the current required for the number of lights In the building. In case the original alternating current was too strong It could bo reduced and then In creased whenever it was necessary or de sirable by the converter system. It la be lieved that the entire cost of the plant with the power from the canal would be less than $150,000. TJIK I. ItepnbUcuti Government Kxprctlng Mttlo Opposition nt the rolls , SAN FRANCISCO , Sept. 22. The steamer , Australia arrive/ * today from Honolulu bring ing the following advices to the Associated press ; HONOLULU , Sept. 15. The coming elec tion , to bo helds October 29 , Is creating con siderable talk. From present Indications there will bo llttlt opposition to govern- ii.cn t candidates. Royalist nominations have not yet been made ; though Paul Neumann , confidential adviser of the ex-queen , has been freely spokeir of as a candidate for senator. One of the clauses ot the new constitution is to the effect that all govern ment officials who have not taken the oath of allegiance to' 'the ' republic by the 1st of September wllll.ba discharged. This rule will be carried out even to the exclusion cf wcmen school teachers , a few of whom would not give up their allegiance to Lllluokalanl. A majority of the native office holders have taken the required oath , however , and slant ) pledged 4o support the present government , One American , one English and three German men-of-war have teen In Honolulu's harbor for the past week.
