If you approach the situation from a Kantian view, what do you think Holmes should do?  If you approach the situation from a Utilitarian position, what do you think Holmes should do?  If you were Holmes what do you think you should do? Why?  Be sure to comment on what you think the Kantian and Utilitarian views would say.
