Rotird of Health Probably at no time in the history of tln
and Wallach. Territory lias an able board of health
boon more needed than at present with the recent direct steamer
route from Mexico to the islands more care is needed to guard the
territory from tropical diseases unknown here but deadly in
their effects and while part of the work is done by the Federal
C.overnment it is of great importance to nil living in the territory to
have a watchful and efficient Board and assistants to guard our
shores from the dangers from without and combat the evil condi
tions within. Tuberculosis leads in its fatalities while leprosy, the
most dreaded of all diseases, is the most loathenorre and fatal in its
results on those who have contracted the disease.
The present Chairman of tho Board is most vigilent in his efforts
to rid the territory of disease and has made an enviable record
since his appointment. Few public meu have been so fortunate as
he as an officer and wo feel that the few mistakes he has made are
so overshadowed by the great good that he has done that they
may justly bo eliminated from his record. Conditions exist here
however that are not co be found any where in the United States
and it some times happens that good motives and efforts for the
best of all are misunderstood and counteracted by ignorance and
superstition and made void by prejudice that would not be found
any where on the mainland. Such may turn out to be the Wallach
incident. The claim of Wallach that he has n specific for leprosy
made from the moss from female stones ott lined ten thousand
feet under the sea and from worms that are to be found in but a
few places on earth is too rediculous for intelligent persons to con
sider but when it is shown that an overwhelming number of the
lepers demand the trial of the treatment and their friends and re
latives are with them in this demand and claim it as their right to
he treated bv whomever they wish and too when they point out
that the physicians do not claim to cure the disease with
which they are afflicted and do not give them any assurance of
temporary relief it would seem the better part of wisdom to allow
the fakir to convince them that he is a fraud than to deny them
their demand and have them believe they are to die when a cure is
at hand but withheld by their guardians. Wallach will profit far
more by being denied permission to go to the settlement than he
would by being allowed to go while the lepers and their friends
may turn against the Board and do more harm than he could do to
those who insist on being treated by him.
Clean Sport A great deal of feeling has been caused by the
Desired. cr'ticism of an undue amount of noise in town
after the game of base ball played by the Stars and the KahuluU
some time aso and we feel it is but fair to state tho position of
some of those persons at least and while we do not agree with
them entirely we must admit that part at least of their contention
The game its self was the best and most exciting game ever
.played on Maui-probably the best game ever played in the Terri
tory. The outbursts of applause at the excellent plays and counter
plays was justifiable. Any one who understands the national game
game and who could sit by and not feel any enthusiasm must be a
fit companion to an Eeyptian mummy and no longer entitled to
associate with living human beings. The playing and demeanor of
the teams was beyond criticism, the spectators were enthusiastic but
orderly. After the game however, a number of persons celebrat
ed the event in a manner that deserves condemnation. mere is
no just cause for making the night hideous to others and especially
so is this the case on a Sunday evening that many persons wish to
spend io a ciuiet manner. While condemning the actions of these
persons on the evening of the game we deny that the Association
was in any way responsible for their conduct. While we admit the
Association is responsible for what it allows on its grounds at the
time the games are played we deny their responsibility for the
actions of individuals away from the same as much so on a Suu
day as on any other day in the week.
