THE MAIN PROPOSITION.
Following is the recommendation:
of President Pinkham to the ' Board
"As published in my report of June
30,, 1905, there occurred seven deaths
fro(u plague in the district of Ilono
lulu duriug the, preceding-:. twelve
months. Several of these deaths hap
pened in the latter part of the year
1904. At that time local rumors and
gossip became so exaggerated your
President f .?lt they should be publicly
refuted. This was done by means of
his address before the Hawaiian
Medical Association. A similar state
of rumor and gossip exists this fall
an1 requires the same refutation.
"It is proper to consider places
similarly) exposed as Honolulu. In
Manila ea?h month the Board of
Health publishes the number of
deaths from ef.ch contagious disease,
including plague, small pox, cholera
and typhus. The same publicity i
givenin Hongkoug, Shanghai, Yoko
hama, Kobe and Nagasaki. The
prevalence or absence of these diseas
es has no effect on the great tourist
and other travel to and from these
"The weather conditions and damp
ness have recently favored dormanl
plague germs. In live weeks we have
had in the district of Honolulu, six
deaths faora that diseases. - Three of
these cases are directly traceable to
one second story room where two vic
tims had slept in dirty personal sur
roundings. One of the two at post
mortem had no Indication of ever
having had a bath, and hit under
clothing could not have been changed
in months. From this room', circum
stances indicate, the infection Was
carried to a third person, who died of
the diseaso. A fourth victim lived in
a second story room across the street.
The room was well furnished but was
not properly cared for;' as dust tad
been alfciwed to accumulate for
months. A fifth victim' lived in a
house situated on low damp ground,'
made by harbor dredgings but lett
several feet lower than the surround
ing ground. The sixth death we can
not account for. The cottagd vraa
in faircoudition. It was near a stable,
however. In this district we have
been unable to find or catch any rats..
"To those persons who are correct
in their personal habits," and reside'
in sanitary districts 'and homes', "the
danei s of plague are less than ' any
other disease under the observation
of the Board of Health. :: -
"The health reputation of Hono
lulu,' Hilo and the Territory is" from
time to time infinitely more injured
by sensational "correspondence," and
rombheers who 'wish W'spin a' big
yarn 'when visiting the coast, ' than
would' be possible from plain official
statements of facts.
. "I suggest you cousiderthe advisa
bility of publishmgweekly' the num
ber of dea'ths occurring in Honolulu
from contagious diseases, including
plague and tuberculosis.'" '
, President Pinkham stated in his
message that the Quarantine hospital
was tho only one over" which the
Board had control;'1' It had a ' keop
er, only and; in cases of ertjergrency,
one or tW6 health 'inspectors' were
detailed there as nurses; The Queen's
Hospital would not receive or retain
contagious cases, ' and it classed
tuberculous cases' amon g ' these; 1 "Tb e
,Hpme for1 Incurables is! the only place
to Whictfordlna'ry tufectious" and iu
purable cases can be sent. It is four
and a half miles' from the ottice ' of
the 1 Board; "and the Quarantine:
hospital twO and a half mile's distant,
,u !'H has b'eeu the -custom to send
tubercular-patients,1 thouph scarcely
able to sit up, to" the office of 1 the
president of the Board and let him
hustle to find a place for them.- He
does not object, for, if their -is no
other way to provide ' he opens up
the Quarantine hospital' for their
care until he '"can find a space for
them. - It is not, however,' very
humane to-hold Very feeble, ' sick
person?, on" our hall way five or ' six
hours while your execuitive W t rylng
to place' them.'
With some other remarks the presi
dent made the following suggestions
"It seems to me the Queeu's Hos
pital would' do well to provide a 6m all,
detached,- isolated ward on their own
for adjacent grounds' to which Puch
patients could be immediatly removed
until they are permabeutly provided
for; or the diagnosis pormits of their
freturn to-the hospital" proper." In
such a ward'' the President of the
Board' should ' be allowed to place
every ill persons for not over twenty
four to forty-eight hours until he can
provide for them. This should be in
charge of the Queen's Hospital for it
is the height of folly to multiply In
stitutions and expense.'
' ''The home for Incurables can ac
commodate twice' as many persons
as it has the means to support. The
location is unexecelled for its objects.
