The editor of the Tiscr repeats
his murderous threat this morning.
Enough of that, old man.
It is generally understood, that
the ''official visit," yesterday, was
made to the Minister of Foreign
Affairs, and Hot to the "President."
When a Diplomatic Representa
tive of foreign nation, lias official
audience with the Read of another
friendly nation, it is customary to
receive such Representative with
militarv honors due his rani.
Tho Star culls the English
sailors of the Champion "young
boys about twenty years old."
That ma' be true, but the Star
shonld remember that the "kids"
are Britishers everyone of them.
This morning's screecher, in its
magnanimous way. aunounces the
visit of Her Britannic Majesty's
Minister Resident, and Cousui-Ge-neral,
and Captain Eustace Rooke,
to the Minister oi Fonigu Affairs
yesterday as follows: "British
Minister Resident Wodehouse. ac
companied by Capt. Rooke of the
Champion, paid an official visit to
President Dole yesterday morning."

It is generally reported that Mr.
W. O. Smith has resigned from his
position as Attorney-General.
If there is any truth in this
report we can only compliment Mr.
Dole and his government, but we
can hardly realize the possibility of
Mr. Smith performing such a
remarkable and gentlemanly act.
Of course, if Billy realty has gone
and done it again and become a
private citizen and simply a part
ner in the drug store of the gen
tleman wno doesn't write rot
for the Chronicle we have no
more use for him and the learned
Attorney will not be known in
onr columns any more except he
succeeds in making himself con
spicuous once more.
We are informed that Mr. C.
L. Carter has been appointed
Attorney-General. If that ap
pointment had been made about
seven months ago, the situation
would perhaps have been entire
HERE WE GO AGAIN.
The volunteers have all been
called on duty. Tho Holomua is
frightfully scared. For God's
sake let us see some Americans.
LEPROSY AND VACCINATION
TO THE EDITOR OF TIIE AC5TKALASJA".
Sir: My attension has been
called to the brief notice in The
Australasian of nry recently pub
lished volume, The Recrudescence
of leprosy and Us Causation, and
I shall be glad of space for fur
ther explanatian. It is needless
to say that the question of the
connection between vaccination
and leprosy is one of urgent and
imperial importance, and must
sooner or later command the
attention of everyone interested
in the public health, and in well
being of our vast colonial popu
lations. Evidence to show that there is
such a connection was laid be
fore the Select Parliamentary
Committeo on Vaccination as
early aslSTl, by Dr. R. Hall
Bakewell, then visiting physi
cian to one of tho largest leper
hospitals in the "West Indies, and
vaccinator-general for Trinidal,
but the idea was poohpoohed bv
the chiefs of tho poor law boards
of that time (who had probably
never seen a case of leprosy
amongst them), and tho evil was
allowed, to go on unchecked until
it has reached its present alarm
ing dimensions. Evidence of a
much wider experience has been
laid before the Royal Vaccination
Commission now sitting in Lon
don under the presidency of the
The eminent bacteriologist, Dr.
Edward Aruing, of Hamburg,
who spent three yearn in the
Sandwich Islands studying tho
causes of the serious increase of
this scourge, says in a paper
read before the Berlin Medical
Congress in 1S90, and published
in January, 1S91, on the trans
mission of leprosy that "a vary
remarkablo acummulation of
fresh leprosy cases took pi ace in
1S71-73 at Lahaina, on the island
of Maui, Hawaii, about a year
after a general arm-to-arm
vaccination. Prom 50 to ,G0
cases occurred suddenly in
this locality, which up to
that time had been compar
atively free." Evidence pointing
in the same direction has beeu
given with particulars of cases of
invacinated leprosy b' Professor
TV. T. Gairduer, M. D., P. R. S.,
of Glasgow; Dr. John D. Hillis,
of Demerara; Professor Mont
gomery, of San Francisco; Dr.
Rodger S. Chew, of Calcutta; Dr.
S. P. Impey, of Robben Island,
South Africa; and other well
known authorities. Dr. Arning,
Dr. Hansen, and Professor Mont
gomery, discovered the leprous
bacilli in the virus of vaccinated
lepers. At a meetiug of tho
Microscopical Society of Culcutta,
reported in the Englishman of
Calcutta, 23rd December, 1S90.
Dr. SS. J. Simpson read a paper
on the Bacillus Lepra). Dr.
Simpson said he had vaccinated
three lepers with vapcine lymph,
and had found the bacill in very
large numbers in the lymph ob
tained from tho pustules formed
on these patients. He had
blistered a patient over a leprous
tubercle and got bacilli in the
serum from tho blister, but the'
were not nearly so numerous as
in tho vaccine lymph. As all
bacterial deseases are inoculable
these experiments show the
danger of vaccination.
I am aware of the numerous
attempts )in my judgement most
cruel and unwarrantable) to in
oculate human beings with
leprosy and syphilis per se, and
of the alleged negative results."
The late Dr. George Hogan, who
had given many years close at
tention to the subject, maintain
ed that the leprous virus is mixed
with vaccine lymph as in the
process of vaccination, the trans
mission is easily mode, and this
will account for the alarming in
crease of leprosy in countries
where leprosy is endemic, and
vaccination is enforced. About !
120 pages of my volume, with
high medical testimony and part
iculars of numerous cases of
invaccinated leprosy, are devoted
to this part of the case.
Duringm y visit to Hawaii, in
October, 1SS0, several members
of the Honolulu Legislature, and
other influential residents, bejr
ged me to make known the facts
concerning this special danger,
and to assist them to get rid of a
medical ordinance which was
neither adapted to the native
race nor to their climatic con
ditions, and was decimating the
population with the most hideous
and destructive of human afflic
tions. Allow me to conclude by thank
ing you for calliug attention to
the subject through your influ
ential columns. Yours, etc.,

THE FRENCH PACIFIC
In response to representations
from Mr. Patterson, Lord Ripon,
Secretary of State for the Colo
nies, has addressed a circular
letter to the colonial uovernmonts
condemning the action of tho
eostern colonies respecting the
New Caledonia cable. He states
that Her Majesty's Government
cannot but view with regret tho
action taken by the Governments
of Queensland and Xew South
Wales, as it implies a departure
from the principles with regard
to colonial cohesion and the con
sideration of Imperial interests,
to which prominence was given
in the discussions of the Colonial
Conference of 1SS7. They share
the views expressed by tho Vic
torian Government that incon
venience, loss, and, indeed, dan
ger, to both colonial and Imper
ial interests, might arise in time
of war if the Pacific cablo passed
through New Caledonia.
In reply to this rebuke, Sir
George Dibbs said that the Im De
rial authorities seemed to forget
that the Eastern Extension service
ran half over the globe, and through
a tremendous lot of foreign territo
ry. He agreed with the views of
the Home Government, and held
firmly that a seperate line passing
tnrough English or protected terri
tory was absolutely necess&ry. He
had discussed with Mr. Mackenzie
Bowell the need for a new cable
to Canada, and he believed some
thing would come of the matter.
The New Caledonia line would
wake tho British Government up
to the necessity of constructing a
seperate cable to Vancouver, via
New Zealand, Fiji, Samoa, and Ho
nolulu. Bundaberg, Monday.
Tho final splice of the cable was
made yesterday, and the Francois
Arago has returned to Bundaberg
to land the surplus cable and renew
her stores. She goes to Brisbane
or Sydney to be docked prior to
visiting Noumea for cargo. M. Ro
nillard and the principal officers of
the expedition return to France by
this month's mail steamer.
A letter has been addressed by
Mr. M'Kenzie Bowell, the Cana
dian Minister of Trade, the
Premiers of the colonies enclosing
a communication from Mr. Sand
ford Fleming, one of the directors
of the Canadian Pacific Railway
Company on the' cable question,
and asking if tho Australian
Governments will send represent
atives to a conference to be held
at some central position in the
colonies to consider the subject
before Mr. Bowell's departure.
Matter or Fact.
Mr. Faxon. It has been figured
that Jay Gould's fortune in silver
dollars would require one hundred
and fifty-six cars and eight locomo
tives to move it.
Mrs. Faxon. Indeed! Where is
it to be moved to?
