The Hose Carriage. A good deal of curiosity

i Verbis Australia. We have received from the
1 President and Committee of the Australian Club of
1 Hamburg, a circular, stating the objects of the So
i ciety. and stating that they are about establishing a
j Permanent exhibition of natural and industrial
! products of Oceania," in which they desire to enlist
; the sympathies and co-operation of Germans abroad.
; Mr. Frederick Duck is the President of the Verein
Aligator Peaks. Tbis One fruit is getting to be
j quite plentiful in this neighborhood, there having
been more seen for sale this summer than ever be
! fore. They are good at breakfast, eaten with salt
j and the least taste of vinegar, but an epicure which
j we once heard defined as a " wretch who would eat
' anything " will declare them delicious by way of
i dessert, sprinkled with sugar and flavored with old
t The Queen's Hospital. We are requested to call
the attention of the members of the Queen's Hospi
tal Corporation to the official notice of the annual
j meeting, which takes place at the Court House to-
day, at noon. Interesting reports will be laid before
the meeting, and the election of trustees to take the
i place of those retiring, will take place. The Board
i of Trustees will hold their biennial meeting imme
j diate'y after the adjournment of the Society, for the
j purpose of electing officers.
j Accident to Dr. F. W. Hutchison. We regret to
I learn from Maui that Dr. Hutchison met with a
i severe accident at Wailuku on Wednesday last. He
was in the act of mounting his horse, when the ani-
mal suddenly started and threw the Doctor with
i great force to the ground, striking on his hip. Dr.
i Saunders was promptly at hand, and reports no
i bones broken, but the injuries received are of such a
nature as will probably confine the Doctor to the
house for some weeks.
A Summer Shower. Last Wednesday morning
the trade winds were interrupted for several hours,
and quite a shower of rain fell pretty generally all
over this Island, and as we learn by letters, also
on Maui. It was however only a very temporary
relief to the parched earth. Some portions of the
Islands are suffering severely from drought, partic
ularly the district of Makawao on East Maui, where
some of the p'anters are much discouraged, and it
is reported, lave talked of giving up and turning
their cattle into the cane-Oelds.
North British and Mercantile Insurance Com
pany. We have received the annual exhibit of the
affairs of this London and Edinburg Company,
(now over sixty years established) which shows a
continued prosperity as well as a substantial basis.
The subscribed capital is 2,000.000, and the Fire
Reserve Fund and Fire Premium Reserve, together
amount to "9G,341. In the Life Insurance De
partment, the claims which have become payable
on account of deaths, with bonus additions, amount
to the sum of 252.707:16:2. Ed. Hoffschlaeger,
Esq.. is the agent in Honolulu.
Larceny of News. It is pretty mean when one
newspaper or writer steals ideas from another, but
it is downright dishonesty when news is appropriated
without credit being given. We have to charge two
T?ntnn imimalH with this offense. The Dailv Globe
and Daily Post, of April 30tb, both copy the ship- j
ping reports at Enderbury and Baker's Islands, fur- (
. , 1 i r:i.- v i

sctooner V. ti ara, giving me arnvais du ue
partures of ships and their loading, and whaling re
ports, without giving credit either to Captain liick
mau or this paper.
A Demonstrative Mother. An acquaintance of
ours tells a story about bis cat which shows that
the creature has a way of showing temper very
much after the style of some human beings that
is. of wreaking its vengeance when irritated upon
innocent parties. Pus3 had made her lodging with
her young family of kittens in tbe stable, and the
gentleman, making a morning visit, picked up one
of tbe kittens, whereupon the mother flew furiously
at the horse standing demurely by and fastened
berself upon his nose. Then there was for a moment
or two a unique imitation of circus ground and
lofty tumbling in the limited area of that stable.
Not without force was the cat detached from the
nose of the astonished horse, when she immediately
rushed at a terrier dog who was innocently amus
ing himself by watching the curious performance,
and clasping his neck with her paws in a very hu
rnandike atlectionate manner, buried her sharp
claws in his flesh. The pup manifested his disgust
by oud calls for pen and ink." and then pussy,
her feminine temper having cat-egorically spent
itself kdoii two inoffensive tbird parties, returned
onietlv'to the nursery. There was much of buman-
:tm ot. that rat's nro
that cat's proceeu-.ng.

: tut the f.rm attitude of the Government and the
; plain necessity of uch action seems to have led
; them to abandon that, and now opposition to the
; rrvpoacJ Trxmty of lleciprvcity with the United
; States, being a autject on which the native mind
j cuuld be iuon easily tuialeJ, it eetna to be the band
I of union among the Adullamitea (to use John

j At a recent mevting, the proposition to ccJe a

: Treaty of lleciprocity, was distorted and exaggerated,
, af:er the usual style of a certain class of politicians,
; into an attempt to establish a Republic in the midst

; only be used to raise a smile. It is well kuown that
j the proposition does not cover any iutent to cede
j any more rights to the authorities of the navy yard
than are now enjoyed Ly the commander of any ship
of war in our harbor. In fact, it is supposed that
j the Treaty may provide for certain privileges fur the
Hawaiian Government as a right under the condi
! tious of the cession, which in the ca.e ef war vessels
i are now only allowed as a matter of cuurtwy. Hence
' the long disquisition upon the horivrs of political
: subjugation was foreign to the question, and without
' any foundation, either possible or probable, so far as
i a Treaty of cession was concerned,
i We are told that just such arguments as were
used at that meeting have been used on many occa
j sions iu Hawaiian history.
' The foreigners that were around Liholiho when
i the missionaries asked permission to land on Hawaii,
fearing to lose their own importance, urged upon the
I King that if the missionaries were allowed to laud
; he would lose his throne and his religion. If there
had been popular suflrage in those days, they would
doubtless have got up a meeting and perhaps carried
When it was first proposed to allow foreigners the
right to hold lands, these same arguments were
urged that they would eventually dispossess the
native of all his property, and the native chiefs were
much alarmed. When the Roman Catholic priests
were expelled from this country, it was under the
influence of just such bigotry and narrow minded
fears. When the sale of liquors were restricted, the
attempt was made to arouse the jealousy of the
native Ilawaiians. These peurile arguments have
been the unworthy ttock in trade of Hawaiian dema
gogues since foreigners first came to the country.
I The Hawaiian ought to be used to such talk.
! The bugbear of annexation to the United States, is
I cheap material for the auti-cverything to work upon
native credulousness with, and they do not hesitate
i to descend to use it, in spite of the apparent fact
that the people of the United States are opposed to
the scheme even if the people of this country wanted
it, and that the I'rcsident of that country in his last
message to Congress distinctly stated that fact.
"I The cession of Pearl harbor by no means implies
annexation. The ability to reject any proposition of
annexation would be just as strong as ever, and
under the prosperity induced by Reciprocity, the
nation might grow stronger.
Of any advantages to be gained by Reciprocity,
these politicians are careful to avoid mentioning,
except in a general way that they would benefit only
about fifty foreigners, which was the only exhibition
of acquaintance with political economy attempted.
It is well kuown to the gentlemen connected with
that meeting, that no proposition involving any
conflict of jurisdiction was likely to be entertained
by His Majesty's Ministers, and yet they did not
hesitate to base arguments upon such a supposition.
Besides the great advantages of Reciprocity, it is
believed that if the United States had a naval station
in this group they would cause their subsidized lines
of steamships to call here, thus putting us in con
nection with China and Japan. Also that they
would cause this to be a station of the ocean tele
graph, and thus in the race of life Hawaii woulJ
have a powerful and interested ally in securing these
advantages. Candid men, really anxious for the
future welfare of our little nation, with souls that
aspire to something more than a return to the rnalo
and pau, not blinded by hatred of America, would find
a place for considerations like these in putting such
a question before the native people.
Some of the parties connected with the meeting at
Kaumakapili are not ignorant men, they have held
a fair reputation in the cummuuity, but if the con
duct of that meeting is to be a sample of the political
course marked out by their ambitions, we must think
more of their ingenuity than of their morality.
I believe, sir, that as yet no Treaty is in course of
negotiation. It is fair to presume, however, that Ilia a
Majesty's Government will inform themselves upon
what terms it is probable that they might secure t?
this nation the advantages of such a Treaty, and if
they are satisfied that such a Treaty can be honorably
made, it is to be hoped they will negotiate one, and
then fairly lay it before the people and the Legisla
tive Assembly. Arguments intended to arouse hos
tility to foreigners and their interests, have often
been used in that body, but so far in the himory of
this nation, no Hawaiian Legislature has acted in
such a spirit, and I have no fears that any conven
tion concluded by His Majesty's Cabinet and shown
to the Legislature to be for the interest of the king
dom, will net be ratified when it comes to the solem
nity of a vote in that body.
In the meanwhile, to assume that a Treaty, if
made, will be a gross betrayal of the rights or inter
ests of the natives, and to strive to create a preju-
! dice in their minds against any Treaty at all, is un
worthy of fair minded men, however ambitious.

P. S. Since the above was written I learn that
His Majesty and the Cabinet have decided to endeavor
to make a Reciprocity Treaty. In common with
others having interests identical with this kingdom, I
rejoice that these interests are not to be neglected,
and that honest industry meets with due encourage
ment among our rulers, in spite of international
I jealousies and partisan clamor. II. A. P. C.
Mr. Editor: I have heard the remark aDd think
I have beside seen it in some communication ia
' that a reciprocity treaty would
only benefit a few planters." This has seemed
strange, for to me it appears that what benefits
the planting industry benefits the whole country
and what depresses and destroys that, depresses
and destroys the couniry.
Other departments of industry are hardly less
affected than the sugar industry itself. It forms
about five-sixths of all our exports, besides what
indirect influence it may have upon the remainder,
and its destruction, would, to that extent, be dis
astrous upon all depending industries, and Govern
Suppose a plantation to be started capable of
producing six hundred tons of sugar annually. To
conduct it well will require say two hundred hands
including all. These must all be provided with
dwellings and clothing and food. To Hupply
dwellings employs the mechanic to supply food
employs the agriculturist to supply machinery
employs tbe machinist to build and run schooners
to carry supplies to the plantation and its products
to market, employs the ship-carpenters and sailors.
And all these classes buy food of the farmer
who with all the others buy clothing and supplies
from tbe merchant, who in bis turn imports his
goods, paying for tbeni with the money received

Mr. Editor : I have been frequently asked by
some friends to write some information or other about
leprosy, and tbe action of the Board of Health.
We always thoaght that the least talk about the
subject the better; action was the thing needed in
presence of the alarming spread of the disease of late
years. I will explain what the action of the Board
has been now that tbo painful part of its duties is
almost at a close. '
How sad these duties havo been, my colleagues
and myself only know. The influences brought to
bear upou us havo been numerous. Prayers, threats,
and worse have been resorted to. Wc tuny boldly
say that uo consideration of fortune, rank or nation
ality has arrested us, and our task lias been achieved
to the best of our ability.
Many a time our hearts were bleeding. I for my
self, as a medical man, have been far from coming
in contact with the pleanautcst features of humanity ;
well, I never iu my life had to witness more painful
scenes of physical and mental Buffering.
On the whole, the natives have behaved very well.
The poor lepers have shown courage, as have their
friends also, but the amount of concealed aullering
left behind by the energetic measures of the Board,
God only knows. Let natives and foreigners know
that we have had our full share of sorrow. We must
also render full justice to His Majesty. Not in one
case has he tried to interfere with tbe action of the
Board, even if a friend or even a relative bad to be
Since the first of March, I have examined over
one thousand people. Four hundred and ten cases
have been sent to Molokai, 240 men ami 170 women,
all natives and half-whites, with the exception of six
foreigners, one American, one Frenchman, one Eng
lishman and three Chinamen. In no case has a
relative or friend been allowed to follow the leper.
Tbe number on Molokat now is about 800, say a
little over 2 per cent, of the population.
We may positively declare that by this time there
are not over fifty cases at large in the Hawaiian King
dom. They will be gradually discovered. Home
cases are sure to make their appearance for tbe next
few years, but we hope that if we do not thoroughly
eradicate the disease, we shall keep it under such
control that it will cease to be a cause of depopula
tion. Now allow me a few remarks about the disease.
Is leprosy infectious or even contagious in the true
sense of the word; that is, by contact mere and
simple ? I emphatically say so.
I am supported in that opinion by the whole
medical world, and by personal experience.
Leprosy cannot be communicated like cholera,
yellow fever, small-pox or typhoid fever.
But provided there is a predisjiosition in a person,
that person may contract the disease by various
means, cohabitation, smoking out of the same pipe,
eating or drinking with the leper, and to forth.
Therefore there is no danger for the foreign popn
lation, and the spread of tbe disease of late years
should not destroy in any way the universal reputa
tion of our most healthy climate. As far as the
native race is concerned, it is quite difl'erenL
The promiscuous habits of the natives, and their
renowned hospitality are such, that they are pretty
sure to catch the least contagious of diseases.
-"Isolation, and thorough isolation, as the Board
understands it, and is carrying it out, will be one of
the most efficient means of arresting the progress of
The most obvious predisposing causes are, syphilis
and its nearest cousin scrofula, also hereditary. A
want of variety in the diet, mostly tbe use of salt
provisions, habitation in ill ventilated or dark bouses,
may also be blamed. The foreigner as a rule ia not
exposed to such influences, or rather to a less degree
than the natives.
In fact, leprosy is not only a skin disease, it Is
what we call in medical parlance a caclutxia. This
means a debilitated state of the blood, under a mor
Syphilis, scrofula, intermittent fever, generate also
that peculiar state cf the blood which produces
cachexia. Persons already suffering from one ca
chtxia, will be more liable to suflcr from any other.
I always abstained heretofore from expressing my
personal views on the subject, but I am confident
that they will be shared by those who have in tbe
study of the disease gone beyond the range of super
ficial observation. Tbe public health as far as
foreigners are concerned is perfectly safe.
To conclude. I will state that a great deal has to
be done yet. The Board will have to devise pre
ventive and sanitary measures, without which the
disease would not be eradicated.
Also impress upon the natives a salutary dread of
the disease, so that no case should be concealed.
Use the utmost exertions to rescue those cases In
Molokai who might perhaps not be beyond recovery.
A great deal has been written lately in the local
papers about the treatment or cure of leprosy. As
the medical man of tbe Board I consider it my duty
to give a general answer.
If incipient cases can be cured, and my impres
sion ia that they may in some cases let the public
well understand that nothing will be neglected.
The treatment at all events mast last for months,
or even years, and could not be carried out before
isolation was completed.
It will have to be discussed with my brother prac
titioners in Honolulu, and will be openly and faith
The medical world is sufficiently well represented
in Honolulu by men of all nationalities, without any
necessity for us to seek for foreign assistance. Any
medical man who respects himself will never say, I
will cure leprosy under the tropics." He will say,
I may cure it," and then he will use known reme
dies and expose his plan of treatment.
I say in full confidence, that what the combined
efforts of the medical men of Honolulu will not do.
Deed not be tried by anybody else. I, for my own
share, have little confidence in those who either offer
to sell their secrets or require inducements, without
which we are willing to try our best.
I thank you, Mr. Editor, for. tbe valuable space
yon have been kind enough to allow me to take w
in your paper. '
Believe me to be yours, most obediently, :.'
Physician of the Board of Health.
