Dr. Dinegar and other physicians
have secured a large supply of
Anti-Toxin, the most effective com
battant of diptheria. Sinco tho
discovery of this remedy the death

fourtedn per cent.

JAPANESE PUBLISHERS TO AN
SWER CHARGE OH LIBEL.
Honolulu, Nov. 31. Dr. Uchida,
.! . i M i 1 1 1 I .
who until yeBicruay nnu oeon tlic
head of tho Japaneso Medical Asso
ciation and the physician in charge
of tho Japaneso hospital, has a
rooted aversion to being called a
"quasihunmn pig," especially in
print. And when his name is
coupled with that of "scoundrel,"
and "bill dodger," ho seems to
have fair gounds for his aversion
ino expressions in question ap
pcarcd in the issues of tho Jap
aneso Daily Chroniclo of October
20 and 28 and form tho basis of
tho charge of criminal libel institu
ted by Dr. Uchida against Kiinura
and II. Tsurushiina, the editor and
manager of tho offending sheet.
Tho cases came up yestorday be-
foro Judge Whitnoy, Judgo Gear
appearing for tho prosecution and
Judge Humphroys for tho defense,
tho two defendants being committ
ed for trial at the Circuit Court,
bonds being fixed nt -f 100 apiece in
oach of tho two cases tried.
Tho Japanese Chronicle is tho
newspaper wh'ich a short tinio ago
advised tho sending of a Japanese
fleet to Hawaii to teach tho im
undent Americans a lesson in poll
teness towards tho subjects of tho
Mikado. It has published at vari
ous times other refreshing articles
in its English columns and it ap
pears that its articles in Japanese
are equally to tho point. That is
if tho paragraphs referring to Dr.
Uchida are any index to the gono-
ral trend of its columns.
"Look here, you quasi-human
pig," says tho Chronicle in draw
ing the doctor's attention to what
it has to say. "Wo will Bubjugato
you, writing and writing, until the
backbone of you, fool, is broken
down and until our belly is healed.
The blade onco unsheathed, wo
will not sheath it again without
All of which goes to show that
tho Chronicle believed tho pen to
bo mightier than tho lancet and
also goes to show that someone on
tho Chroniclo was mad. The cause
of tho wrath was some remarks
made by Dr. Uchida at a recent
banquent, in which ho took occa
sion to ridicule the Chronicle and
its editor. He did not know that
ho was'drawing tho lightning by
these remarks, for making which
he is said to be meaner than a man
who dodges his drink bill or re
fuses to pay his subscription. That
ho is at tho head of tho Medical
Association and is allowed to
"strut tho streets with assuming
airs" is an evidenco of tho weak
ness of society.
ThiB appeared in tho Chroniclo
of tho 2Gth, and tho editor follow
ed up his threat of "writing, writ
ing," on the 28th, when ho con
tinued his ''Register of Grotesque
Vaporings," which ho used as his
headline. In this article ho at
tacked the pr&fessional standing of
Dr. Uchida, who had ''not a single
convincing thing in him, cither in
respect of his character or in his
"When wo reflect that such a
creature is the president of the as
sociation and the superintendent
of tho Charity hospital wo cannot
help feeling our shoulders as his
compatriots pressed narrow." Tho
pain had evidently passed by this
time from the belly into tho
shouldors of the Chronicle.
''lie has killed a dear little one
of tho Yamasliiro-ya," continued
tho writer, "by running over him.
Tho wound at least being the
cause from which this little" boy,
the hotel's solo darling seed, has
died his unnatural death. Whilo
therefore if this Uchi-doc (Dr
Uchida) be a being with a bit of
conscience in him lie should have
prayed for tho blessings in the
future world for tho child, covered
with a dark cloth and with his
head shaved, yet he, tho unfeeling,
not only possesses not so exalted a
sentiment, to wit, ho is driving his
carriage with such an arrogance as
if to say thcro, look this, in front
of tho lamashiro.ya notwithstand
ing his oath to abstain from using
carnago m tho future." -Advertiser.
