BERLIN, July 11. A queer
Incident in Travel.
When Rev. E. W. Thwing was
Found in Makiki.
Honolulu, August 1. The Board
of Health, without taking formal
action in the matter, yesterday
practically decided that hereafter
the medical treatment of lepers, ex
perimental and otherwise, wiil be
conducted at the Si ttlemeiit, and
not at the Kalihi receiving station.
The matter came up when a letter
was read fnjin Dr. UriackerholT in
reply to one written from the Hoard
of Health pome tiny before, in which
he agreed to supervise the experi
mental treatment with r.toxyl, an
arsenical compound, under certain
conditions. These conditions were
principally, as it seemed to the
Hoard, that if the treatment proved
a success he should get all the credit,
and if it didn't prove a success or
if anything happened to" any of the
"patients through its use, no rcsnon
sibility was to lie attached to him.1
On this point Dr. BrinckerholT's
letter was as follows:
"It must Ik." understood that my
responsibility in the matter is not
"to extend lcyond the supervision of
the administration of the drug to
suitable cases, such cases to be select
ed by a physician delegate by the
Hoard of Health and myself. I will
take such notes of the progress of
the cases under treatment as may
le necessary for a proper reporting
upon the action of the drug and re
serve to myself the privilege of pub
lishing the same, in conjunction
with, or separate from, the repre
sentative of the Hoard of Health."
Dr. Hrinckerhofl' suggested that
as he was going on a vacation for
thirty days from August l,- perhaps
the treatment might just as well
not liegin until after he returned.
The proposol was that there should
be five patients selected to be retain
ed at the receiving station to under
1 go this atoxyl treatment.
The Hoard had just finished deal
ing, in a disciplinary way, with a
patient who has been retained at the
receiving station to undergo the
Nastine treatment for several months
instead "of being sent to the Settle
ment at Molokai, and were not in a
mood to favor retaining another lot
of patients at the receiving station
for a treatment that, so far as they
could see, could be administered at
the Settlement, especially after the
Federal Leprosarium is completed,
which it is supposed cannot lx de
layed for very many months more.
Dr. Wayson said that ho doubted
the wisdom of retaining any more
patients at the Kalihi receiving
station for this treatment. There
had been five there for a number of
months taking the Nastine treat
ment, one of whom the Hoard had
just been compelled to direct should
be sent to the Molokai Settlement
because he would not comply with
the regulations of the station. To
add five mtre for the atoxyl treat
ment would overcrowd the institu
tion. It was not designed for that
purpose nor provided with conveni
eiiees for it. Hut in addition to that
to pick out certain patients to be re
tained at the station and to send all
the others to the Settlement, gave
color to the charges of favoritism
that were made against the Hoard
The friends of all patients liked to
have them retained at Kalihi where
they could visit them. And so the
friends of those who were not re
tained there felt that favoritism was
displayed when any wore allowed to
Dr. Wayson predicted that when
the Nastine treatment was conclud
ed there would lx a big crop of
haW-as corpus eases to prevent those
who had been taking the treatment
from being sent to the Settlement
Ou motion of Attorney General
Hemenway the matter was deferred
with the understanding that it would
probably never come up again.
At the beginning of the meeting

matter of the insubordination of

which w.is told alMiut in yesterday
This patient was one who was be
ing given the Nastine treatment, lie

in histrav'els, however, that he omit
ted to narrate.
Mr. Thwing is an ardent admirer
f the Wautics of nature, a good
pedestrian and a lover of flowers.
The desire for exercise led him, it is
nid, several miles down the Vol-1
cano road wliere his attention was
lincted to some magnificent roses,
growing in all their mountain splen-
or as roses only can grow on the
sland of Hawaii. Oblivious to such
igns as "No Trespassing''," Ka pu " ,
'Beware of the Dog," and padlock
ed gates, the reverend gentleman,
so it is claimed, either got under or
over the fence and stood on forbid
den ground. It was not long before
he was inhaling the fragrance from
the Queen of flowers.
Whether or not Mr. Thwing had
picked of the forbidden flowers, his
tory relateth not. But there was
heard a sudden rush of pattering
feet, of breaking branches, of bay
ing and barking as the dogs in whose
custody, house, home, land, flowers
and all bad been left rushed madly
upon the scene. One eye witness
tates that canines seized upon the
rear portion of the garments of the
intruder but this can only be. sub
stantiated by the dogs who are silent
on the subject. At any rate help was
needed and a rescue effected.

that is not to disregard all the signs
