The "special reports" 'which the
tuberculosis bureau of the board of
health lias gathered to show the statuB
of each case of consumption and the
decree of responsibility in its treat
ment which the government must as
sume, has some of the best social his
tory available In the Territory. The
report is complete and shows every
thing from the pat'ents earning abili
ty to the condition of his residence.
In order to show the great percentage
of cases which the government must
care for, the Bureau has just made
r.n abstract of ten cases Just as they
appear consecutively In the report
book, mentioning only the financial
items. They are as follows:
1. Chinese man, Honolulu. Age
f7. Indigent. Care for by friends. In
hospital at a heavy expense to people
who could ill afford it.
2. Japanese man, Honolulu. Age
f.n. Unmarried. Wages $50 a month.
Returning to Japan to die.
3. Hawaiian girl, Honolulu. Age
15. Inmate of industrial school and
sent to hospital at government ex
pense. 4. Japanese man, Honolulu. Age
38, with wife and child. Wages $9 a
week. Tuberculosis of hip. Went to
5. I'orto Rican man, Hawaii. Age
54. Destitute. Sent to hospital by
6. Japanese girl, Hawaii. Age 15.
Father's salary $42 a month. Sent to
hospital by government.
7. Hawaiian man, Hawaii. Age 38.
Wages formerly $40 a month. Sister
and nephew also have consumption.
Bedridden. Sent to hospital by
8. Japanese man, Hawaii. Age 67.
Four children, two dependent on him.
Wages $30 a month. Sick fifteen
years but still working.
9. Filipino man, Hawaii. Age 21.
Supported by father on wages of $21
a month. Sent to hospital by govern
ment. 10. Filipino woman, Honolulu. Age
25. Husband deserted her ten months
ago. Supported by friends. Cared for
by tuberculosis nurses.
Multiply these problems by 90
(there are about 900 new cases of tub
erculosis a year In Hawaii) and an
estimate is arrived at for the great
work the tuberculosis campaign en
tails. Of the above cases the govern
ment sent numbers 3, 5, 7 and 9 to the
hospital, at a monthly expense of
? 180. Numbers 1 and 4 were sent to
hosptal by friends, cosllng $90 more.
Number 2 went to Japan where he
vill probably become a charge on his
friends and relatives, Number 10, Is
lared for by the breau's nursing
rystem, maintained at considerable
expense, and number 9 Is still carry
ing on the fight by himself (although
also looked after by the nurses). The
economic cost of these ten caBes to
this Territory Is In the neighborhood
of $300 a month, and this number Is
less than a fifth of the number of
cases reported each month.
By waging a vigorous campaign
against the disease it can be gradual
ly reduced and then this tremendons
expense will be lessened. Let the
d'sense go on and the expense will Be
trebled. It. makes no difference who
pays the bill. If the government has
no anpropriation for It the people pay
it direct. Somebody pays It.

Farm Loans Likely To Die
The house finance committee In a
majority report, has recommended the
tabling of the proposed farm loan bill,
prepared and backed by the Haiku
Farmers' Association. The report
holds that the proposed revolving
fund of $100,000 would not be large
enough In Itself to supply the money
necessary and hence could not revolve.
It declares that the Organict Act
would not permit theterrltory to
pledge its credit to back up the
tnaoanro fin dmnke ltoDerative. The
matter Is to come up for a rehearing
some time this week, DUt itseems un
likely that it can pass.
That the superintendent of public in
struction be requested "to reinstate
Mr. C. A. MacDonald as principal of
the Lahainaluna School on or before
the legislature adjourns sine die, is
the ultimatum threatening H. Wals
wnrth Kinnev in a resolution oflered
by Representative Joseph of Maui. It
went to the education committee.
By resolution, Representative Jo
seph asked that "the sum of fifty
