Tlit (lovfiuof nud Public Health.
The Governor's teceiit handling of
health matters hIiows such 11 surprising '
iguornuce Ixilh of public health and of
the needs of the Territory nnd its Ha
waiian members, that I would like to !
draw attention to several points,
This is the outside line of protection I
wheie those epidemics likely to be car- !
ried from the Orient to the Mainland can !
be checked by careful sanitary and quar
antine icgiilatioiis. 1
This hi the past has been effectually
done and Dr. Cooper, the late President i
of the Board of Health, has been congrat- 1
ulatcd by the health authorities nt Wash
ington on the cllicieut woik lit this dlrec-;
lion. Then again for the proper protec-1
lion of the various districts mid islands
from the Invasion of epidemics can only
he efficiently catried out by the present
method of having district government
physicians. The Hawaiiuus being 11 1
Drtiuitlve nice arc peculiarly suseeptiblc I
to epidemic diseases, and these disc.ises
are remarkubly fatal to us. Governor
Carter seems to consider district physi
cians ns mere useless burdens to the tax
payers, whereas, former rulers who had
learned tooth by experience and tradition
their necessity to the welfare of us Ha
wnilaus, continued the system which the
needs of the Territory hnd called into ex
istence. In, other words, if loveriiinent
district physicians had never been needed
they would never have been appointed,
and the need today is just as great as
ever. "Prophylaxis or prevention" is
the best possible treatment of disease,
though the effect of the treatment is
never very visible or obvious, this is the
"treatment the district physicians apply."
It only needs the recurrence of some t i
the terrible epidemics of the past and the
effects of the infectious diseases to im
press the value of the foregoing argu
ments oil Governor Carter and those that
agree with him.
A lay Board of Health constructed on
the same principles his excellency seems
to advocate, with it lay President (per
haps nil estate agent) and an easily
silenced medical minority (perhaps none
at nil), tile whole under the dictator who
rules the Territory, might bring this to
pass. Then ns soon ns the epidemic is
upon us we should stnrt to reconstruct the
Board of Health and be iu a proper posi
tion to fight the disease In our graves.
As reported in the P. C. Advertiser of
April 6, 1904, Governor Carter remarks
that he docs not wish us IlawaiianS to be
like Indians. He never said u truir
tiling, since these people hnve some con
sideration paid to their rights by the Gov
ernment, whereas Governor Carter would
remove what little we hnve.
It seems astonishing tliit n Governor
with such wishes should be so much ad
mired by the. majority of the Hawaiian
members of the House of Representa
tives of this Legislature that they permit
him to lead them by the nose. This was
conspicuously shown when some of the
members, hesitating to reduce the salaries
of Government physicians to nothing,
were nevertheless led to it by the mcic
introduction of n serious, unjust nud un
founded charge against one of the phy
sicians in question.
Iu the same paper I sec that some wise
acre states that of the drugs supplied free
to tlie Government physicians only 10
per cent, or not even Hint much, is given
away. As a matter of fact, none are
given away and none sold. No poisons
can be.. given or sold without breaking
the law, and many of the most valuable
drugs ore poisons. Does the writer ac
tually think that people apply to the
doctor for a "teaspoonlul of strychnine"
or n "handful of nrseuic?" The wny the
drugs nre supplied to the public is in the
form of u prescription, which is a pro
duction of n physician's knowledge, me
chanical manipulation and the Govern
ment drugs, so what he gives nway is n
combination of "thought, work and
drugs." He can neither give or sell one
without the other two. They are iusep
erable, so that the drugs the doctors get
free from the Government must he re
garded as something allowed him to save
his expenses nud us part of his small
salary. It can never be regarded ns 1111
article to be handed by the Government
to the physicians nnd by the physicians
to the (patients) people as the writer
seems to think.
There may be other points involved in
the proposed changes, but the nbove are
at least sonic of them, and it has seemed
to me, ns an Hawaiian, worth while to
druw attention to them for the sake of
my own race, though nothing could be
added to the kindly efforts of Dr. Hayes
