Martins Damage Suit In Honolulu
Brings Out Sensational Allegations
Against Paia Hospital Manage
ment. In setting aside the veidict of tho
jury in the case of M. A. Martin
against A. A. Wilson, which was for
tho defendant, and granting a new
trial. Judge Thomas I!. Stuart, of the
Honolulu circuit court, delivered a
long and sensational series of charges
against Dr. Wilbur F. McConkey, resi
dent physician of the Paia hospital,
against Mrs. C. Rogers, head nurse of
the Institution. Martin, who was a
laborer, had his leg badly crushed b
Hie falling of a wall at Kakipi gulch,
while working on a road job for which
Wilson had the contract. He was
treated at the Paia hospital following
his accident, and it Is largely on nc
coirit of the alleged bad treatment
that he received there that Judge
Stuart bases his opinion that the
jury in finding for Wilson was not
governed by either the law or the evi
dence. Martin sued for $20,000 damages on
account of his injuries.
The court's decision granting a new
trial is a lengthy document covering'
nearly 14 tpowritten pages. His con
demnatory comment- on Paia hospi
tal's head nurso and Dr. McConkey is
"It is said that tho plaintiff is to
blame on account of his conduct in
the hospital. It is almost comm.on
knowledge, if not quite so, that an
injury of this kind, although not com
plicated with compound or comminut
ed fracture of the bono, must be well
cared for in older to prevent the wast
ing away of tho ileshy parts through
pus formation In all hospitals the
nurses steadily watch the temperature
of the patient and nearly every hour
a record is made of temperature; and
Hie temperature plays a most import
ant part in the determination of the
nction to be taken by the physician or
surgeon in such a case.
"Daily and at every visit he calls-
for these records, examines them
closely. If there is heat, much inflam
mation and pain, it argues that unless
it is stopped the flesh will, in plain
language, rot away.
"There are no records in the Paia
hospital, no such record was kept.
The doctor does not know what treat
ment was given, he can not state on
any particular day or even weok of
the three months ' in which' this man
was in his hospital, what was done for
his relief. The head nurse, or as she
Is styled tho 'superintendent,' is equal
ly ignorant of the conduct of tho hos
pital; and does not know whether it
ha? any wards In it or notv Had the
doctor been paying attention to the
case, he would have known that the
inflammation was spreading and that
pus was forming. Under theso cir
cumstances, it is not good practise to
cause the wound to heal up on the
t.urface, as he says it did within the
first three weeks.
"Good practise would be to keep
that wound open and reduce the tem
perature and stop the decaying of the
parts. He did not do this. Ho wrap
ped it up in some kind of a well
known antiseptic and left the man
crying and screaming day after day.
I think plaintiff is right In his con
clusion that if he had not gotten out
of that hospital at the time he did,
he would havo been carried away a
"To say that the doctor's acts were
legitimate practise would bo a libel on
the profession of medicine and sur
gery. To say that that hospital in its
shown treatment of this case is con
Jucted as hospitals usually are in Ha
waii, would also be a libel on every
hospital in the territory. Now the
plaintiff was carried to that hosp'U
by tho defendant. The doctor's acts
ire the defendant's acts.
"Whatever tho doctor did negligent
'y and wrongfully is the act of the de
fendant. The plaintiff has nothing to
say about it, except to finally insist
upon leaving the place Tho dootor
says tha. at the end of three weeks,
tho wound was virtually healed, ami
he talks about secondary blood poison
ing. His excuses in this respect are
to my mind the merest subterfuges
and if they in fact qxisted they are
all to bo attributed to tho want of
care that ho failed to give to tho pa
tient. Tho wound should have been
kept open and tho inflammation
should have been reduced. The limb
should have been brought to as near
the normal temperature as possible.
"Tho story of tho secondary blood
poisoning is simply absurd. The su
preme court of this territory has been
called upon to pass upon the duty of
a lawyer to his client and they have
visited dereliction of duty in this re
spect with very severe language.
Much worso conduct in a sister pro
fession should not bo passed over
lightly. As to whether the doctor
could testify rightfully against his pa
tient, see section 2915, statutes, 1015.
But supposing It be claimed that this
statute is Inapplicable--still, I do not
thing that any one ought to contend
that Dr. McConkey should bo allowed
to attempt to abuso his professional
character and position by trying to
break down and humiliate a man that
was thrown at his mercy as this man
was. I have no doubt in my mind
that if tried upon tho merits. Dr. Mc
Conkey would be found guilty of nial
practise, ai to his conduct of this
caee. If he was negligent, it was the
negligence or the defendant, for which
the defendant must respond."
J. C. Foss, Jr., was in Honolulu this
week in connection with his contract
for tho Hilo wharf work, oh which he
will begin work very shortly.

Cupid Scores One For
It is a delicate subject in and about
Lahaina, they say, but as usual Cupid
bas wagged his fingers at such nun
barriers as a great international war
can create. But to get down to brass
tacks, P. R. Hasson, whose name be
trays his antecedents, and Miss Vir
ginia Music, whose name doesn't, but
which does indicate harmony, created
something akin to consternation
among their relatives and friends
when they slipped away from Lahaina
town a few weeks ago, and were mar
ried in Honolulu. They are now in
San Francisco, where according to the
San Francisco papers their arrival al
so created some Hurry among more
solicitous friends and relatives Mrs.
Hasson ,vill bo lemembered by La
haina folk as the recent charming
guest of her sister, Mrs. B. E. Fcun.
The following is from the San Fran
cisco Examiner, of recent date:
"Cupid played a sly prank in the
fairy village of Lahaina, Maui, when
he stole tho heart of young P. R.
Hasson, stepson of E. R. Stackable,
former collector of customs of Ha
waii. "Young Hasson, who is engaged in
tho sugar business in the Hawaiian
islands, and his brido arrived on the
Matson liner Matsonla yesterday
morning, en route to the bride's home
at Point Richmond to seek tho bless
ing of her mother, who did not know
of the wedding, which was a surprise
even to tho friends of tho bride and
bridegroom In the Islands. Hasson's
stepfather met tho couple at the dock,
and after what is stated to have been
a stormy interview, granted the pat
"Mrs. Hasson was visiting her sis
ter in Lahaina when she met Hasson.
It was a case of love at first sight.
Owing to pafornlal disapproval the
two went ot Honolulu after less than
a' month's courtship and were secrft-
ly married. Tho first intimation that
their friends had of the affair was
when they sailed for San Francisco
as man and wife aboard the M.-,t-sonla,
one month after their wedding.
"Mrs. Hasson's mother has not been
notified and tho couple are waiting
anxiously for her verdict.
" 'Oh, well, it is done now,' philoso
phically remarked Mrs. Hasson yes
terday. 'And, in popular slang, 'Ish
ka blbblo!' Still wo are kind ol wor
ried to know just what she is going
to Eay and what she is going to do."
