At the meeting of the Hoard of
Heallh in Honolulu on Tuesday
last, President lMnkham made an
extended report on the leprosy
situation, which is a subject under
discussion by the legislature. . In
response to a communication from
Chairman llolsteiu of the House
I,eprosy Committee asking for
concspotidencc regarding Dr. Rice's
four patients, who have been un
der the lattcr's care at Hilo for the
past year, the Hoard of Health
have turned over to the legislature
all the reports on the subject.
The report in part states that the
quarantine station at Hilo has been
described by Dr. L. R. Cofcr of the
U.,S. M. II. S. as one of the most
sanitary hospitals in existancc.
There is nothing necessary to
sauiiauou mat lias not uccti pro
vided, and all arrangements, though
simple, are complete and as perfect
as can be desired and the attend
ance is equal to all requirements.
One year ago four leprous pa
tients were at his (Dr. Rice's) re
quest placed in this quarantine sta
tion solely under the charge and
medication of Dr. Milton Rice.
Two local examiners were ap
pointed, Dr. Hayes, of the same
school of medicine as Dr. Rice,
homeopathic, and Dr. J. J. Grace
of the allopathic school, who has
been succeeded by Dr. Archer Ir
win. These four patients were origi
nally examined by Dr. J. T. Mc
Donald, bacteriologist of the Board
By direction of the President of
the Board of Health, Dr. J. T. Mc
Donald proceeded to Hilo and 011
the second of this month examined
these four patients, thus complet
ing a year under the charge of Dr.
November 24th, 1904, Dr. Rice
summarizes his claims as to im
provement in these four cases as
Ben K. Pea has improved 90 per
Mary Kalani has improved 75 per
Kewaimaka Pea has improved 50
Kniliponi has improved 25 per
Dr. Hayes reports as follows, tin
der date of March 2d, 1905:
Ben K. Pea Wasting almost
disappeared; recently atrophy of
thumb and weakness of right hand
have partially returned; eruption
over body and sensation much improved.
Mary Kalani Shows most mark
ed improvement; sensation and eyes
arc in normal condition; no dis
charge from eyes and nose; hands
have straightened; much of the
eruption has disappeared.
Kewaimaka Pea No particular
change, yet her general appearance
and health are better.
Kailipoui Anaesthesia, which
was complete sensation, is now
nearly normal; eruptions and discol
Dr. Archer Irwin succeeded Dr.
J. J. Grace in September, 1904,
and on March 1st, reported as fol
lows: Ben K-. Pea September, 1904.
Purely nervous type of disease; one
small ulcer on third finger, left
hand. February, 1905. One
small ulcer base of little finger,
right hand, also small sore on tip
of little finger, left hand. Other
wise no change for better or worse.
Mary Kalani September, 1904.
Hands and feet uoticable; on left
foot large ulcer. February, 1905.
Hands unchanged, except addi
tion of a small ulcer on the thumb
of right hand, and a small ulcer on
finger. Ulcer on foot reduced in
size but extending to new surface;
altogether her condition is slight
ly worse than in September.
Mrs. Kawaitnaka Pea Septem
ber, 1904. Face inflated leonine
appearance; fingers contracted; few
white spots on body and legs.
February, 1905. Face unchanged;
nose larger; nasal passages much
blocked; patches on body more
numerous; one ulcer on elbow of
right arm; fingers more contracted;
white patches on feet and legs;
nails very much broken. I would
say disease has advanced.
Kailipoui .September, 1904.
Skin of face infiltrated; ears large
and flabby; hands thick, swollen;
feel and legs marked by white
patches Febrbary, 1905. Face
more swollen and disfigured; sur
face ol back of head, all down back
of neck to shoulders, covered with
a great number of pustular mobulcs,
some as large as half an olive. Left
arm at elbow an ulcer about 3x4
inches in area, replacing a former
anaesthetic patch; also 011 same arm
n deep circular ulcer covered by a
blrfck slough; feet and legs un
changed. Altogether her condition
is much worse than in September.'
Under orders of the Board ol
Health, Dr. J. T. McDonald, the
official bacteriologist, reports as
follows, under the date of March
I secured tcstsnlps from each of
the four patients; each and every
one of the four show the presence
of the bacilli of leprosy.
Ben K. Pea and Mary Kalani
These patients are in about the
same condition they were a year
Mrs. Pea and Kailipoui These
two patients have grown worse
since I saw them one year ago.
The following reply was written
Monday, March 20th, to Dr. Rice:
"Dr. Milton Rice, Hilo, Hawaii.
"Dear Sir: Your communication
of the 15th at hand. I also have
had the pleasure of meeting you.
"Probably more than ever 'you
will appreciate the complicated pro
blem leprosy presents in all phases,
not only from a medical standpoint,
but every relation that affects hu
"I have not yet had the time to
go into the reports concerning the
four lepers in your charge. I shall
assume the responsibility of a re
view and recommendation.
"I believe you will have confi
dence that botli will be dispassion
ate, unprejudiced and considerate.
"Yours very truly,
"(Signed) L. F.. PINKHAM,
"President, Board of Health."
In President Pinkham's opinion
both Dr. Rice and Dr. Goodhue
should be given further opportu
nity. Dr. Rice should continue his ex
periment on the four lepers at the
quarantine station in Hilo to a final
determination. Pres. Pinkham says:
Dr. Goodhue, who is the resident
physician at the Molokai leper set
tlement, should have more ample
financial support and Dr. Rice
should be reimbursed for 'his ex
penditure for medicines, past and
future, upon presentation of the
