Bureau Cites Typical Case To Show
How Important Is Need Of More
4 Homes Children Need Care
VnriDty has no limits in tho pro
blems of the anti-tuberculosis cam
paign to which each day brings now
perplexity to the official bureau or
ganized to fight the great white pla
gue. The multiplicity of these bureau
is not now capable of meeting as they
should be met, but the best, relief is
being given with the means at hand.
The records of the bureau contain a
case which so far from being an exa
geration of conditions, is absolutely
ijpiciil of score a of other case.". The
bureau is not permitted by law to
mention names but gives publicity to
the facts with the desire to invite
suggestions and discussion.
The family consist of a mother and
ix children; consumption appeared
in other branches of the family some
time since. In this case, however,
the mother was discovered by one of
he bureau's district nurses in Hono
lulu and proved to have the diease in
nn advanced form. Two weeks after
discovery she gave birth to her sixth
child. She is dependent solely upon
herself for support, her husband hav
ing left her, and her earning capacity
is very low.
The case, of course, demands soci
al relief irrespective of the disease
complication but the bureau points
out that the continued residence of
the children with the mother (and
particularly that of the baby) threa
tens the entire family with eventual
death for tuberculosis. The bureau
poins out further that several of the
children have already been proved to
have the disease. The tenement
room in which all live is pitifully
small and dirty. The nourishment
. all receive is entirely inadequate to
maintain health, much less restore
The woman cannot be taken to a
sanitarium, (which is otherwise opn
to her) because she refuses to leave
There is no adequate home where
these children could be placed if she
Two of the children are tuberculous

not afflicted, but there is no home

If this family were an. isolated case,
says the bureau, society might afford,
from cold-blooded viewpoint, to ignore
It is, however, one of many. It will
indicate the board relief measures
which the Terrtory must plan for.
This case not only calls for n sani
tarium for tuberculosis (which is
available) but it also calls for a

Festival on February 21, in Honolulu

nonr Sir As n Rnbser ber to vour

In vnnr eilitnrilll. "FiliDinos And
Citizenship," published yesterday, you
take occasion to say, "But it isn't
good pense to admit an unlettered
lirhri:iri from the w Ids of Alrlca to

Now as to barbarians it is quite
rnnreivnble that the race of a thous

enabled to slay more of each other.
But when did American courts be

I undertake no apology for the
language of the law, and would agree
with you if you had said that true
manhood (and womanhood) and not
racehood should be made the test for
admission to citizenship. But doubt
less the lawmakers had in view tho
right of every government to limit the
right to its citizenship to those who
have already been tried and found
true and loyal to it, or are likely to
be bo, as well as otherwise desirable.
The simple fact of being an educated
gentleman does not make one a loyal
citizen; he may have other loves.
But as for the African or his descend

loyalty. Proved it at Bunker Hill
where Crispus Attux was among the
first of the patriots to shed his blood
in the revolution. Proved it at New
Orleans with Jackson, and in Lake
Erie with Perry. Proved it under
Grant; in Cuba, and in Mexico. In
faak there has been no scene of death,
haWship or danger to the Republic
that he has not met whether in
peace or war.
So that his freedom "of citizenship
or right to such, was" obtained with a
"greater sum" than that given by the

The reforence objected to by our
correspondent was perhaps un
fortunate. We might have illustrated
the point we were trying to make by
the also overworked term "scum of
Europe." But inasmuch as our laws
limit those who may he naturalized
to white persons or to those of Afr
ican nativity or descent, there was
not much choice. In either event
nothing invidious would have been in
tended. In fact we tried especially to convey
the idea that naturalization should not
be a matter of race, but of individual
