In another place w ill be found an account of
the very pleasant picnic in Kapiolani Park,
contributed by one of the fair participants.
There was another picnic at W'aikiki on the
same day held at the Long' Itranch bath
house, it was arranged by two lady members
of a private dancing class here. It was well
attended during the day, and was succeeded
by a merry dance in the exening.
Joseph Kawainui, editor of the Vat Aim has
favored the JWtt with a copy of the China
Mail of September 39, 1S0O, containing an
article on the "Political Crisis in Hawaii' (of
that juncture), the paper being t enriched by
marginal notes in inc handwriting of C. C.
Moreno. A translation of both article and com

appear in next Saturday's Prtsi.

While Doctor McGiew was out dtixing on
the Waikiki load yesteiday afternoon, he was
met by a runaway horse attached to a buck
board wagon, and a collision ensued, by
which the Doctor and a lady companion weie
forcibly thrown from the carriage. It is satis
factory to state that neither the lady or the
Doctor were hurt, notwithstanding that their
carriage wac so badly smashed as to be unfit
for further use. The dtixcr of the buck.board
avoided the collision by dropping from the
back of the wagon and letting his horse go.

lie goes on to lell us that "ihe disease here is

"reason" Is to be found in the fact that Jona
than Hutchinson says: "Theie mealsogood

during the last two centuries a milder disease
than it xvas when it first inxaded F.uropc." He

He has sought to draw a parallel from

F.uiopc hundreds of years before s)philiswas
known there at all; and why, if leprosy is only
s)philis, should the disease introduced by
Columbus, have had so dire an effect uon
People already so thoroughly syphilired as
Europeans generally must haxe la-en at that
time? Our case is the rexcrse of that ol
Kurope. There it xxas leprosy first and syphi
lis allerwards; here it has been syphilis first
and leprosy afterwards. It is a fact generally
known among physicians, lhat sjphilis has
been a disease which for a long time has been
committing serious raxages among the Alas
kans; but that leprosy does not exist among
Dr. Fitch tells us, in his Lcgislatixc Report,
that, "for all practical purposes, every native
in this group has syphilis;'' and jet he is xery
careful to explain in his leprous cases, lhat in
every instance this disease has been preceded
by sjphilis. How, in the name of common
sense, could it be otherwise, admitting his own
statement, that "every native in this group
has syphilis " ? The same kind of reasoning
might be applied to establish the syphilitic
origin of smallpox, or measles, or any other
eruptive disease to which the native might be
As set down by such distinguished dermato
logists as Erasmus Wilson, and Tilbury Fox,
the lesions of syphilis and those of lepfusy are
utterly distinct. Fox says: " Danielsscn and
liocck think the primary seat of the disease is
the spinal cord. Dr. Vandjke Carter thinks
the disease commences in the superficial
nerx-es, and traxcls towards, but docs not
reach the spinal cord. The most important
changes arc in the ncrxca themselves." Those
most generally affected, says Fox, aie: " Jhc
ulnar, the median, the saphenous, etc., ending
in numbness and insensibility to irritants, and
wasting of muscles." Gross saj-s: "The
textures most prone to suffer in tertiary syphi
lis arc, the skin, mucous membranes, perioste
um, liones, filiro cartilages, aponeuroses, ten
dons," etc.; and of the bones most prone to
attack, he mentions first the long bones of the
extremities, as the tibia and ulnar, then the
skull, the bones of the palate, the maxillary,
nasal, turbinated, and ethmoid bones, etc.;
but singularly, if Dr. Fitch's theory be right,
makes no mention of nerve lesions, or that the
bones of the hand and foot are subject to spon
taneous amputation. (Vol. 1, page 318).
The bones attacked by syphilis arc singularly
exempt from disease in leprosy; and vict versa.
If thediseases xx ere so similar in their external
characteristics as the Doctor w ould hax e peo
ple beliexe, it is strange that "the Hawauans
make the diagnosis with great certainty and
rarely fail." Vide Emerson's Report. The
Tahitians too, and other South Pacific
Islanders, where the disease prevails, have
long since recogniicd it as distinct from syphi
lis. In Tahiti the name given to syphilis, is
tona; to leprosy, oovi. Hut, to establish his
theory further, he says: " There are the same
copper-colored sores, thick crusted with scabs;
the same aching bones," etc. With the
Doctor, in regard to his last assertion, I would
beg most decidedly to differ. In untreated
tertiary, the " aching bones " form an almost
constant and invariable symptom; but not so
w ith leprosj-, which in numbers of instances
goes on from year to year without a pain or an
ache. That nocturnal pains do occur in
leprosy, as in syphilis, I am free to admit; but
not that such jiains are nearly so constant a
sjmptom in leprosy as in syphilis.
And now in icgard to cure. Dr. Fitch
says: "Another objection made by phj-si-dans
to my positions is; Why cannot we cure
this disease as we can syphilis?" His answer
is an inaplicable nuotat ion from Dr. Gross.
Gross in reality says: "The treatment of
icui-iiy aypiiius reposes upon Droati scicnllhc,
and philosophical nrincinlrs. and m.ivihrfrMr

tnuiuiui; gicai iciici, 11 noi ot ultimately

short time under the modern system of treat
ment; and I haxc repeatedly seen patients,
apparently on the very xcrgc of the grave,

medicine." Again, llumstcad and Taylor
write: " We know that the great majority of
"" i"i aypiinu, csumaicu as nign as ninety
five per cent) which have been thoroughly
treated, arc absolutely cured, and arc never
followed by a relapse.'' No tuch results have
licen obtained In the treatment of leprosy, by
Dr. Fitch, or any other man. Hut, why not,
If the two diseases ate identical? Krasinus
Wilson mentions the fact that syphilitic treat
ment, art general thing, docs no good in
leprosy. He also saj si " The phenomena of
the syphilitic poison aie replete with interest,

In regard 10 contagion, Dr, Filch, In his

world is quite opiocd to Ihe belief lhat leproty

quoting several (nuances wheie colubitalion

had been a "notorious consort of leprous
women" without taking the disease himtelf,
he goes on lo icmaik that, in every case where
white persons hate taken the disease, "it hat
been a jusl reward of the Patient's licentious
nets," thcicby tacitly admitting the con
tagiousness of the disease. Lastly, he attempts
Iu toothe the more xirtuout, by tajingi " No
