TIIK GARDKN ISLAND TUESDAY. JANUARY 16. 1917
GASES LAST MONTH
The anti-lubcrculnsis bureau of
tin Territorial l)oirl of health has
issued (lid following concerning the
tuberculosis situation, which is pub
lished by request:
The outstanding feature of the
December report of the Tuberculosis
I'ureau of tin hoard of lienltli, just
issued is (lie large uunilier of cases
that were added to the record. In
all, 11!$ new cases of (his disease
were reported during that month,
the second largest monthly leport
in the history of the bureau. The
largest was last February when l!il)
were reported. The average for the
year is soincwhercs about "" a
On the other hand there were
comparatively few deaths, for where
the bureau expects about forty a
month from tuhcreulosis at this
time of the year there were only
thirty in December and fourteen of
those were in Honolulu.
Cases by Islands were : Honolulu,
37; Oahu, 11; Hawaii, !$."; Maui,
20; Jpauai. 10. .Of the total seventy-three
were men, and forty-two
It is notable to observe that fif
teen cases of tuberculosis reported
in December were of school chil
dren on various islands, sustaining
the bureau's contention that it is
in the schools where the greatest
danger lies. As regards naiionali
ties, Japanese are very much in
the lead for the month, with forty
cases, Hawaiians and Part-1 Iawaii
ans having 'J'.l and Filipinos having

Variety has no limit in the prob
lems of the anti-tuberculosis cam
paign to which each day brings a
new perplexity to the ollicial bureau
organized to light the great white
plague. The multiplicity of these
problems include many demands
upon the charity of society which
the bureau is not now capable of
meeting as they vhould be met the
best relief is being given with the
means at hand.
The records of the bureau con
tain one case which so far from
being an exageration of conditions
is absolutely typical of scores of
other cases. The bureau is not per
mitted by law to mention names
but given publicity to the facts with
the desire to invite suggestions and
The family consists of a mother
and six children ; consumption ap
peared in other branches of the
family some time since. In this
case, however, the mother was dis
covered by one of the bureau's dis
trict nurse in Honolulu and proved
to have the disease in an advanced
form. Two weeks after the discov
ery she gave birth to her sixth
child. She is dependent solely up
on herself for support, her husband
having left her, and her earning
capacity is very low.
The case, of course, demands so
cial relief irrespective of the disease
complication but the bureau points
out that the continued residence of
the children with the mother (and
particularly thai of (he baby)
threatens the entire family with
eventual death from tuberculosis.
The bureau points out further that
several of the children have rl ready
been proved to have the disease.
The tenement room iit which all
live is pitifully small and dirt v.
The nourishment all receive is en
tirely inadequate to maintain
health, much less restore health.
The woman cannot be taken to a
sanitarium (otherwise open to her)
because she refuses to leave her
There is no adequate home where
these children could be placed if she
Two of the children are tuberon-
lous and should be separated from
these not afllieted, but there is no
home for tuberculous children
worthv of the name.
If this family were an isolated
ease, says the bureau, society migl t
afford, from a cold-blooded view
point, to ignore it.
It is, however, one of very many.
It will indicate the broad relief
measures which the Territory must
plan for. This case not only calls
for a sanitarium for tuberculosis
(which is available) but it also calls
for a hospital for tuberculous chil
dren and a home for predisposed
and practically orphaned children,
neither of which exist.
