After Iming iRnoreil for some months past
the law cnactcil by the last legislature, requir
ing him to publish tmaitirly a ilctaitol state
ment of the receipts and expenditures of the
Hawaiian Treasuary, llic minister of finance
has at last made n blundering attempt to show
the public that the intent has not been alto
gether lo ilr fy the law. On the 5th instant,
appeared in the columns of the Advertiser a
statement of the receipts and expenditures of
the treasuary to March 31, 18S3, signed by the
minister of finance. As represented there, the
total receipts of the treasuary to date of state
ment had been, $1,348,780.21, and the expen
ditures for the same period, $1,385,531.97.
According to such a statement it appears
$3i75'-7" 'ia' been paid out of the treasury
in excess of what has been received into it,
which is certainly a wonderful performance.
We might believe in the ability of the minister
to pay bills out of an empty iockct; but arc
met by a statement which immediately upset
so pleasant a theory. This statement is that,
notwithstanding such an apparently wonderful
performance, there still exists a balance on
hand of $48,330.71. Hut it would be im-
(xmible lo conceive thai this large balance
could have been evolved from nothing.
As the balance existing on March 31, 18S2,
has not since been Included among the receipts
we naturally look for that Iwlance to explain
the difficulty. We find it to be $126,541.05;
but then, if it had been intended that this
balance should have been included among the
receipts, the actual balance would lc as far
from correct as ever. If we add the balance
on hand on March 31, 1882, to the receipts of
the succeeding jcar, it forms n table of
$'i475.3l-o and the Iwoks of the depart
ment would call for a balance on hand of
$89,789.29, differing by $41,558.58 from the
balance as er statement. Apparently, this
seeming discrepancy can best be explained by
supjiosing that the latter sum has been aid
out of the treasury in advance for something
which has not been received, or for something
Ihat would apear less favorable in the columns
than a discrepancy. Nevertheless, the fact
remains that a large discrepancy plainly exists;
and if the account is incorrect in one place, it
ma) be so in another. In fact, such an in
accuracy remaining unexplained renders the
whole account utterly worthless and open to
the gravest suspicions. Neither are these sus
picions lessened when we contemplate the fact
of the unlawful delay which his attended the
publication ol the treasury statement, and the
unceremonious dismissal of the late registrar,
Mr. Godfrey Drown, a few months since,
upon which occasion the minister of finance
informed Mr, Drown by letter lhat he was
following out a "necessary policy" in dismiss
ing him, but that his "valued services in the
past to the government" were "highly appre
cutcil" and would "ever be remembered."
Hut let us now turn to the individual expend!
turcsas set down in the tables. In scanning
them, we are not surprised to find that under
the model rule of the philo-IIawaiian premier
and his colleagues, more attention has been
paid in the actual management of affairs to the
decorative than to the substantial; lhat the pro
vision of gilt and tawdry to please a few weak
heads, and raise himself (hereby in their esti
mation, should have usurcd the proper place
of public improvements and the vital question
of health, lly the report we find that such
nutters as the coronation, reception of foreign
official guests, exjienses of foreign missions,
(to Japan and Kussia) purchase of decorations,
education of Hawaiian youths (mostly In the
art of warfare) aid of volunteers, drill shells,
land, Hags, arms and accourtcrmcnts, purchase
of ordnance, etc., have received full attention
in the way of expenditures. On the other
hand, such cr)ing needs as the I'jli road,
handings, wharves and repairs of landings,
water supply at Kalawao (much needed by the
lepers), icuirs and additions to water works,
and the like, comparatively little has been
expended. Only $35 has been spent out of an
appropriation of $45,000 for the proposed l'ali
road. The sum of $50,000 was appropriated
for "building and maintaining hospitals" at
tle lime understood to bo for the out-districts.
Out of this the sum of $16,276 lias been spent;
but where and for what purpose, ft would be
ilirticult to conceive, unless It be for the odd!'
ttou of one or two small rough houses added to
the Honolulu Leper beltlcmcntt It is our
opinion that It would cost Ics than half that
sum to put up anew all the fencing and build
lng on the premise. We also leain from the
tables lhat $10,000 has already been spent on
the appropriation for an armed force (mounted
police). Where ore ihcy? One thing only
plainly is shown by the figures! That unless
the government can get considerably more
credit than It has succeeded in doing, up to the
present lime, things will have to. stop for want
of funds. Mote of this anon.

The Advertiser keeps the courage of its
opinions so hid from public scrutiny lhat none
but an arrant coward would ever imagine it
had any. Hut whenever, without mentioning
names, it can make an unclean insinuation or
a cowardly slur, it is happy and the lamb of
its valor and the covotc of its Innocence lie
down together to concoct another lie. Its
latest anil among its meanest slanders is the
reproach it seeks lo fasten upon the employ
ment committee of the V. M, C. A. I'ortu
natel), Mr. J. II. Alherton, Mr. II. K. Dilling
ham, Mr. I'. C. Jones Jr., Mr. S. II. Dole
and others who might be named, who have
faithfully served on this committee, are so
well-known to this community that they need
no defense here. In other Islands, among
new comers ami to believers in the reality of
Christianity wherever the Advertiser may lie
read, the reproach lo the gentlemen so wan
tonly maligned may be convincing until
refuted. The denial is easily made, and the
lives of the gentlemen mentioned arc the best
refutation xmihte; but, unfortunately, those
injured are themselves unable to reply. In
public answer to the Advertiser's whole-cloth
lie, the Gazette and the Bulletin have each
done something. We gladly contribute our
quola of like answer in the interests of religion,
of newspaper truth and of fair play.

We regret to hive to chronicle the fact that
a number of cases of continual fever have
lately occurred in and near Honolulu, and that
the tendency seems to be towards an epidemic
Our experience of a few scars since naturallv
causes such an outlook to be viewed with con
ccrn, and the question of how best lo avoid the
contagion or infection forces itself into piomi
nence. If malarial In Its origin, it is prolAbly
more or less endemic in nature, and the germs
of the disease, conveved by the atmosphere,
and free dilution of the morbific (or xisonous)
clement by means of proper ventilation and
thcaction of sunlight, is an importantindicition.
How these means may be best applied, com
mon sense will teach; but tar funics ami smell
ing salts, although perhaps helpful lo a certain
extent as preventives, can never supersede
the necessity of fresh air and direct sunlight.
After prophvlaxis comes cure, and the earlier
a patient realizes the fact of his illness and
submits himself to intelligent treatment, the
better his chances of an early recovery will be.
More especially is this the case with tjphoid;
and the patient who goes to bed early in the
disease has immensely larger chances of re
covery than the one who persists in being
alwtit until he can do vi no longer. As the
germs of tvphoid arc often conveved by means
of the milk supply, and the drinking water, It
is safer to use neither during the prevalence of
the disease, w ithout having them first lioiled.

It would seem that Honolulu is blessed with
.1 genius In the shape of n quasi-comical writer,
if judgment in the matter may be based upon
certain contemporaneous effusions which have
recently ap(carcd in print. The would-be wit
has strung together a heterogenous mass ol
words and sentences without any connection or
evident purpose except the ambition of being
funny. Hut even in this aspiration the trifling
scribbler has hardly succeeded, unless it is
funny to see a writer play the "fool absolute"
and fill up empty space with senseless con
glomerations of words. It maybe, however,
that this scribe is misconceived and wrongfully
not appreciated by the people of Honolulu. It
is barely jiossible that he is an Artcmus Ward,
or a Cruikshank in embryo, and that this
wordv bufibonerv of his is onlv a maiden effort
which docs not fairly reveal the latent depth of
unfathomable npish ability that he (losscsscs. If
mis is tnc case, the commonplace and unap
prcciativc public had better thank goodness for
what little they can get from the embrjo wit,
and applaud his antics until he makes a con
summate buffoon of himself.
The above excerpt from 11. c Advertiser of the
9th instant seems an unkind and even im)olitic
rebuke of its own pet funny man he who has
been mewling of mushrooms and croaking of
cabbages in the column of "notes," and doing
the quite loo-too in such work as the Adver
tiser's account of last week's entertainment at
Athletic Hall. It is true that the writer in
question never wrestles with the Diglish lan
guage without being thrown, that his jokes are
commonly brought from at least the distance of
l'iji, that he merits all the hard things the
aragrapli sa) s about him. Yet that does not
justify so cruel a snub as his unsparing editor
has given him. It may be, however, that the
Advertiser's skit was meant for some one in
another newspaper household, In view of

The following paper was written by Dr.

As recently the article of Doctor l'itch has
been so ably answered by Mr. A. C. Smith, I
will pass many of Ihe minor point at Issue and
devote myscllmore particularly lo proving the
sc;nrabihty of leprosy anil svphilis.
' The public of Honolulu must feel as though
to digest any more matter on the hackneved
subject of leprosy is asking a great ileal but
my excuse Is, that to stand by and see the pub
lie misled by such an article as " leprosy from
the standpoint of Dr. Titch," in which is ills-
piavcii sucli a pew tillering contusion o the dis
tinctive features of syphilis and leprosy, isim
jKWsiblc) and I therefore venture to champion
the cause of truth and science, and present in
as succinct a form as possible those main differ
ences established by modern invcstlg-itions.
I might premise my remarks with the state
ment that all modern dcimatologists draw a
wide line of dcmarkatioii between leprosy and
svphilis. At one time the difference between
the two diseases was not so apparent ( but lhat
was when Ihe knowledge of skin diseases was
very crude j when such diseases nsscarlct fever
and measles were considered one and Ihe
same; when lupus, sinliilis, psoritsis and cc
rema were but vaguely sepiratcd. Hut long
since the identity of each of these as scnratc
affections, as well as tint of leprosy, has been
acknowledged. To D.-tnictsson and llocck,
Vandyke Carter, I lebra, Kaposi, and others,
wc are Indebted for an accurate knowledge of
the clinical history of leprosy ; and through the
microscope the sine qua 11011 of modern med
ical Investigation In the hands of Ihe Illustri
ous Virchoow, wc have been made cognizant
of Its p-ilhology.
The tenor of Doctor Pitch's article is an at
tempt lo establish two things, l'irst, the
Identity of svphilis and leprosy, or rather an
assertion that leprosy is but a late stage of
svphilis; and, second, Ihe non-contagious
character of leprosy. 1 he article pretends; to
say that at certain stages there is great diffi
culty In distinguishing between the twodiscascs.
Given a clear case of leprosy, and a clear case of
svphilis, I know of no two skin affections In
which the differential diagnosis can be made
with such certainty; and, should there be the
least shadow of a doubt, a proper antl-svphili-lie
treatment appropriate lo the stage in which
the case might be, would decide matters inside
of Ihirty dajs. If leprosy, but an indifferent
change will be shown, while if it lie svphilis,
almost every vestige of the symptoms will have
disappeared. Unfortumtcly, cases occur in
these islands where lioth leprosy and svphilis
arc present, and the mingling of the two at the
same time may cause confusion.
In speaking of the similarity of the two dis
eases, Doctor l'itch remarks; "There are the
same copper-colored sores, thick crusted with
scabs; the same 'aching lmnes; the same
swollen glands; Ihe same pigment patches ; the
same intense feeling of coldness (?) and llic
same necrosis or death of a portion of bone."
These svmploms, taken separately, are present
in a vast number of skin affections; grouped
together, they arc found in several, and arc
distinctive of none. What stamps the entity
of any morbid process (disease), is a coherent
recognition of the s)mptoms in their entirety.
It might .equally well be said of measles and
scarlet fever, because, in both there is soreness
of the fauces, in both there is fever; in Iwth a
macular eruption, follow cd by a papular stage,
and then a stage of desiccation, that they must
necessarily be the same. Hut it is a proper
recognition of the period of incubation, of the
seventy of the throat svmptoins, the time of
appearance of the eruption, the parts where it
first appears, the difference of the desiccating
scales, and the hight of the temperature which
arc, to all but the eves of a tvro, unmistakable
evidences of the individuality of e-ich. Al
though these two diseases have so much in
common, they are separate and distinct; each
induced by its own peculiar germ. Not one
iric character of the svmptoms, but the time
reiiuircd forcach to develop, as well as the
order of their sequence, must lie taken into
consideration, ho much so is this the case
that at onetime the writer saw in the great
iViaultn-htuit, at Vienna, three of the most
inspection alone, and without asking the pa
tient a question. Ily one it was called pem
phigus, by another urticaria bullosa, and by n
third herpes iris. Hut, after questioning the
patient, and comparing the time of develop
ment of Ihe symptoms, etc., all agreed lhat it
could only be urticaria bullosa. Such exam
ples could be multiplied aJ infinitum.
Hut let us analvzc the symptoms above re
ferred to. "Copper-colored " spots are pres
ent in any form of skin disease, where the con
gestion is intense and of lone; standing, and
where the turgid capillary circulation is at
tended with more or less, btasis allowing a
breaking up of some red blood corpuscles,
and a deposit of the red coloring matter of the
blood in the shape of a coppery-hued pigment.
The copper-color in the spots of leprosy is
more marked than it ever is in svphilis.
"Aching bones" occur in all diseases in
which the system is loaded with a specific
ixiison. The svmptom is present as a pro
dromous of many of the acute Infectious dis
eases, and among chiouic disorders it is just as
characteristic of Icncocvthcmia, or chronic
malarial isoning, as it is of syphilis or
"Swollen glands" follow anvcasc of blood-
poisoning ; it only requirx-s the lymphatic cirH
tiuauun tu necome uie receptacle 01 a moroiu
product, and enlargement of the glands ensues
as a result of the irritation. Enlarged glands
arc present in tuberculosis (scrofulosis), in can
cer, in pvaemia, in ljmphadcnoma, in many
of the common form of skin eruptions, in sy
philis and in lenrosv.
"I'igment iatches" arc simply the sequel of
viiiuuiv hiitivauuil UIIM UIICTUIIUII Ol II1C Shin.
It is as common after lupitic, edematous, and
other morbid processes as il is after svphilis.
The pigment patches of leprosy, however,
differ from those of syphilis in partaking of the
nature of mclanopathia, a disease in which the
black pigment of the skin increases in patches,
rurtheimorc, the opposite condition to melan
opathia, a whitening of the skin, is not un
commonly present 111 lepiosy, but it. never a
concomitant of sj philis.
t "Necrosis," or death of lione, Is not pecu
liar to svphilis or leprosy, but more olten
follows tuberculosis; 11 may also result from
carcinoma, or osteo-sarcoma. In leprosy it Is
only found on the extremities, Iwing usually
accompanied by gangienc of Ihe soft parts; in
syphilis, on the other hand, It may attack any
bone of the body, and is known to attack
those of the head more frequently than those
of the extremities.
1 will now briefly point out some of the
differences in the clinical history of the two
diseases! In svphilis there is a comparatively
short period of incubation. It lieing seldom
longer than four weeks. In lqirosy, the period
of limitation is very long, ranging prpbably
fioin two to ten years. In syphilis there arc
three distinct stagesi Ihe primary stage is
marked at the point of inoculation by an ini
tial indurated sore, which is always character
istic of syphilis, and of syphilis only. And no
writer has, ever oliscrvei) t In relation to
leprosy. Doctor Fitch's observations to the
contrary', therefore, go for nothing, since lie
has not been in the islands long enough to
watch a single case of leprosy from its Incep
tion to its close In death. According to his
arguments, syphilis precedes leprosy by seven
years and he has been In the Islands but (wo.
Furthermore, he has rcealcdly stated In pri
vate thai he could never obtain from a native a
history of the primary stage of sy philis.
In the second stage of syphilis, occur ihe
great variety of eruptions which give lo syphilis
its polymorphous character ; and il Is in this
stage that some forms of eruption will assume
a coppery hue. In leprosy (frequently in Ihe
very beginning), coptier-coiorcd spots appear;
but, if Doctor Fitch's theory tw true, lhat
leprosy is a very advanced stage of syphilis,
how can arise, eight or len ycarsi afterwards,
what belongs lo a stage falling within the first
thrc, or at most four years?
In the secondary stage of syphilis, there is
general loss of hair. In leprosy, there is
neither a history of a previous falling out of
loir or of loss subsequently, except directly at
the places where the tubercular blebs of teprcsy
are found. As one of this seals of selection for
these blebs is the eytbrows, It is a common
sight in leprosy for the eyebrows to be gone
and lost forever, while the head hair is not
touched, This will never be found to be the
case In any one having syphilis alone.
Hut it is upon the aihological and thera
peutic variance of syphilis ami leprosy thai the
Siime claim of discrimination rests. What
istingulvhcs between the morbid products of
different pathological procctset is their charac
ter, the parts of the body thev invade and the
changes they undergo. The difference in ctrs
tain case of lupus and syphilis U simply rt
tablishcd by the chrouiclty of the procs la the
tnc and the rapid destruction in llic other.
Although there is some similarity in the tuber
cle of phthisis pulmonale, and certain of the
new formations of syphilis, the former pre-eminently
attacks the lungs and serous membranes;
while syphilis attacks by preference other
structures. Under the microscope, the mor
bid products of leprosy and syphilis, like those
of lupus and granulation tissue in fad, like all
lhat proliferate from the inter-cellular connect
ive tissue bear a certain resemblance in com
mon. In syphilis, all the structures of the Ixxly
may be invaded; many of the internal viscera
arc apt to be; least prone of all lo Its on
slaughts, is the nervous system. When llic
nervous system does suffer, it is at the scat of
the great central deiols of nervous matter
the brain and the spinal cord. Hut, as patho
logists have shown, many of the symptoms on
the part of the nervous system arc not so much
due to the direct involv ement of ncrv ous matter,
as to the constriction of blood vessels by syphi
litic debits in their coats. It is thus tint
symptoms of softening of the brain, or paraly
sis, may follow the destruction of nervous ccn
lies, suliscqucnt to syphilitic involvement of
the nutritive bloou lessen of the part.
In leprosy, the nervous system is always in
volved ; but, unlike the syphilitic deposits,
those of leprosy, avoiding the central masses,
confine themselves to the peripheral nerve dis
tribution, and by preference choose certain
distinct nerve bundles, which are rartty or
iitvtr attacked in syphilis. I'rom the involve
ment of these nerves, develop a great many of
the characteristic phenomem of leprosy. Atro
phy, an.-ethesia, fatty and fibrousdegencration of
muscles, hypcr.vsthcllc congested spots, which
later become painless, ulceration and gangrene,
are nil symptoms referable to the involvement
of nutritive nerve fibres. Medical literature
records many instances of atrophy of the fin
gers and hand, following nn accidental section
of the ulnar nerve ; and Charcot gives the par
ticulars of a case in which a cicatrix involving
the median nerve of the arm was follow eil by
an ulcerative eruption on the skin of llic fore
arm and hand. The same thing follows the
leprous infringement of the same nerves.
The great tubercular prominences of lubcr
cular.leprosy which, nccording to the theory
of Doctor Pitch, could only be confounded with
gummatous infiltrationsof the sub-dermal tissue
in syphilis differ decidedly from these ill their
chronicity and slowness to ulcerate. No new
formation is so apt to break down and slough
with deep, ragged edges as the gummata of
syphilis. Alike sloughing of llic tubercular
prominences in leprosy Is unknown.
The last difference upon which I wish to
dwell is the curability of syphilis and the hope
lessness of leprosy, I know of no class of
cases which a physician sees enter his office
with more satisfaction than those of syphilis.
Here he at once realizes that before him is nn
opportunity to illustrate one of the grandest
triumphs of his art ; for there is no disease
which he can combat with such efficacy as
syphilis. The mortality has been reduced to
live or six percent., when formerly it was
thirty to forty. About ninety-five out of every
hundred get well under modern treatment.
Hut what of leprosy? How many of those who
pass the portals of the settlement at Molokai
return cured ? The annals of medicine record
no disease in which the prognosis is so hope
less or the prospects so dismal. This thera
peutic difference alone should establish their
non-identity. The attention of the public of
Honolulu lias often been called to the historic
fact of the prc-cxistencc of leprosy. Leprosy
numbers its years with history. Wc might
almost say tint humanity, in its infancy, lisped
its dread of a disease it could not stay. Of
syphilis, no record comes before the fifteenth
century. The best written account of it at
that time was by a monk in a Latin poem, in
which he expresses his ignorance of tnc nature
of a disease wlfich spared not laymen nor the
holy churchmen, nobles or kings; and
even invaded the second precincts of
the papal throne. This was the first
general introduction of syphilis in L'uropc;
and, as it followed shortly after the epidemic
of leprosy which had been brought to ICurope
by returning crusaders, had subsided, some
medical historians ascribed a causative relation
ship between leprosy and syphilis. This was,
of course, soon proved lobe erroneous; but
Doctor Fitch, in his theory, reverses history,
hitching the cart before the horse.
In attempting to answ er the question, " Why
does not leprosy abound in other places where
syphilis is prevalent ?" Doctor Fitch, makes
such a far-fetched and unscientific application
of one of the most brilliant accomplishments
of modern science, that I cannot pass it with
out refutation. I refer to the series of experi
ments by which I'asteur has succeeded in pro
tecting by vaccination, against the terrible
ravages of splenic fever among sheep. Doctor
Fitch says; "i'asteur has discos ered that by
takinir a drop of blood from an animal affected
by splenic fever and putting it into a plate of
ifutllliuil UlUl 111 U lUlV 1IUUIS HIV UOU1IIUII Will
be swarming with the peculiar germs which
produce the disease. Now take a dron from
the first plate and put it into a fresh plate of
uouiuon. Again it will swarm with germs.
Hut the germs arc much less active than in the
first plate. Continue this experiment and by
a number of fresh transplantations the germs
come tohavc a very low grade of vitality, and
aftcf a time a period arrives when by inocula
ting animals from a portion of this worn-out
product of the original disease the animals
inoculated run no risk, but on the contrary, arc
thereby complcteiy protected from the original
disease." " Now," he adds : " In
my opinion, this is just what is taking place
here." Just what Doctor Fitch means by the
application is difficult to tell ; but I suppose
mar ne means tnc poison 01 syphilis, when lor
the first time introduced into the blood of a
people who have never known the disease be-
lore, tnc tirst case is very severe, but each suc
cessive case inoculated develops a weaker
poison in other words, the native Hawaiians
constitute to Doctor Fitch's theory the
"bouillon" of I'asteur. A little reflection
soon makes apparent the misapplication.
I'asteur takes from a sheep, sick, with sple
mic fever a drop of its blood and introduces
it, not into the blood of a healthy she-en, but
into liouillon, a medium or soil to which it is
foreign. The jioison (blood) containing vast
numbers of a peculiar germ, or bacterium, is
introduced into an unfavorable soil, and there
fore, after the bouillon becomes filled with the
proliferating bacteria, some of a lower grade of
vitality are produced, which, when trans
planted to fresh Ixniillon, develop forms of
mm less viiaiuy, 11 mis oe conunucu, alter a
scries of propagations, germs of but slight
activity are obtained. I'asteur, by inoculating
or vaccinating sheep with this, developed a
low grade of fever which effectually protected
the animals from the fatal type of the disease.
Hut, if direct inoculation, with the uncultivated
blood of a splenic fever animal, lie practiced
upon healthy unvaccinated sheep, they invari
ably get the severe form of the disease and tile.
Syphilis Is a contagious disease, which is con
tracted only by inoculation through direct con
tact irom one person to another, and not by
means of anv intermediate "linulllnn riiliuri-."
The iwison is necessarily given off from a dis
eased person to one who is healthy and un
syphihzed, since anyone who has once had
syphilis, never contracts it a second time. To
make a proper application of l'aslcur's dis
covcry clear, let us consider smallpox for a
moment. In its relation to vaccination, from
which l'aseur received the cue which led to
Ins exrieriments. If tniallKjx poison be in
troduced to some outside medium like the
bouillon of I'asteur, or what will serve the
same purpose, lo some lower animal, like the
cow, a soil o which It is foieign, a jioison of
lower grade or less vitality will result. If
this lie now Introduced into the human Imdy,
a disease essentially like sinallox, but lacking
its intensity, Is produced, and which protects
as effectually against smallpox as Pasteur's
Inoculation protects against splenic fever.
Almost everybody has excricnced in his own
person the beneficial protection of vaccination.
Hut take the poison from a smallpox alicnt
and inoculate 11 into a healthy individual, and
genuine smallpox, not vaccinia, will follow)
and the virulence and contagiousness of the
disease will not be ilimtnishcd, ecn if hun
dreds of successive Inoculations bt made. It
is this direct inoculation, without Ihe inter,
mediation of a foreign soil, which U going on
in the conveyance of syphilis. Ills for this
reason lhat syphilis is iusl as sev ere In places
where It has existed for centuries as it was
when first introduced. The sorriest lot of
syphilitic that 1 ever beheld was in the sy phi.
htic hospital wards at Vienna. Mostoflhcni
hail been brought Jn from some of the outlying
Slavonic provinces, where ignorance and
superstition prevail ami much of hygienic: im
provement is to be wished for. Wherever the
disease lias diminished in virulence it has
been due to better hygienic surroundings and,
above all, to treatment. Want of space for.
bids calling attention to all of the many con
tradictions In Doctor Fitch'i article. That
syphilis is once called infectious, and at
another time contagious, and Ihcn contagious
and infectious both, nukes it appear that both
are correlative terms in the mind of Doctor
Fitch 1 yet I know of no single author who
snealu of tviddlu a infrrtlnu.
I need say little about ihe contagiousness of
leprosy All the latest investigations lend to
prove its communieabihty through constant
contact. I ottunately, this contagiousness is
not so pronounced as some would have it
seem 1 yet there can be no doubt that it is
contagious. For this reason it is proper to
segregate. Ily segregation wc expect to stamp
out the disease once for all. Wc all recognize
the severity of the measure; but, as we can
offer nothing definite in the way of cure, His
the only thing left us.
Weighed in the balance of history and
science, Doctor Fitch's theory is fountl want
ing. If his frequently uttered opinion be true,
that all ntviiam halt irthilii and thii
trfhilit itoUorif.ffy Itfroiy, Ihcn the fate of
mis race is so natK mat us agony cannot lie
painted In words. Hcforc it, opens out a
miserable existence of living decay, of unbear
able suffering, of helpless imbecility, of a life
of despair n thousand limes woisc than death.
Hut wlist weight can lie attached to .1 medical
authority who, in his yearly report, after
stating that he Ins treated several thousand
cases, classes all the skin diseases under two
headings, syphilis and lepiosy. In my ihort
experience on these Islands, I have seen a
large number of the commoner skin diseases,
such as eczema, acne, comedones, prurigo,
herpes cincinnatus, herpes roster, etc. Yet, In
his yearly report, Doctor Filch mentions none
of these. Is it possible lhat Ihcy have all lieen
classed with syphilis and leprosy?
If Doctor I itch's theory had been the out
growth of long continued Investigation, it
would be worthy of more consideration; but
the inspiration seems to have come almost
with his advcnl on the islands. Great dis
coveries In medicine and science arc not liorn
by Ihe inspiration of a moment; but require
careful and laborious experiment, and long
continued observation lo establish their Invio
labilily. Darwin worked and labnrnl
twenty-five scars, before he ventured logive

lieforc he made known to mankind the lwon of
I'asteur experimented with untiring zeal for
a-long period of lime before emanated those
practical results, the protection against splenic
fever and fowl cholera.
I predict a better fate for this oeoiilc than
Ihe wholesale condemnation to leprosy. As
regarcis tnc prevalence 01 syphilis, I have seen
it more general in some countries than here;
and yet their populations live, thrive and
prosper. If nroner measures be taken, nml
