EIEE3 OH THE PLAINS.
After the exiieiienee of tlie late
ifire at "Wuikiki, (lie Government
' ought to take sonic steps to provide
upparatnu for extinguishing liren in
that locality. Kvcn with all the
menus at hand in Honolulu for that
purpose it a impossible to get them
out there in time to do any great
nmount of good.
"We are perfectly sure that, if the
menus are provided, the hntrte-
'st holders and property owners there
would take the necessary steps to
care for (he apparatus and would,
also, we are assured, themselves
turn out at the. alarm -and mini the
fire engines and work for the desired
end the speedy extinction of the
And in a country like thin every
lire is not only a canto of individual
loss but a cause of national loss.
It means the losi of so much wealth
to the nation, trilling, perhaps, in each
mngle case, but amounting in the
aggregate to thousands of dollars.
And, although prosperous, we nve
too few in nuniLers to afford many
nuch losses. Every dollar expended
in the country of which the result
vanishes, an in this ease makes itself
felt throughout the community.
"We arc informed, too, that the
necessary provision coidd be ob
tained with liltlo trouble. Since the
advent of the last steam fire-engine
there has been an old hand engine
lying idle in Honolulu. "Why not
give this and a sutiieient supply of
hose, and have a house erected at
aine central point where it would be
easily accessible in case of need ?
Probably the only permanent ex
panse would bo a watchman stationed
to give warning.
We throw out these few sugges
tions and hope that those specially
interested will take the matter up
Slid bring it to a Miccc.isful issue.
Tho lopoi" Hospital etc Xnknako.
On Sunday last, by courtesy of
I)rn. Fitch and Kodgors, ourieporter
was shown over the Eraneh Leper
Hospital at the above-named place.
IS is a deeply interesting subject to
CTery one on these islands, both
native and foreigner. No one can
have failed to notice the spread of
Hub terrible disease and the ravages
it has made, and from experience it
is safe to say that race is not a bar
to its attack. We are informed that
there are no less than seven whites
now at Molokai. And yet tho Hoard
of Health apparently have not pre
pared any dclinito plan for confining
and stamping out this fearful
When tho ground wan first en
closed for tins settlement the Hoard
of Health fenced in 200x800 feet;
now they have added to its extent,
and it is SOOxoOO feet.
The buildings arc frame ones, and
those for the patients extend along
one side of tho enclosure and part of
two other sides. Each of these
liuildings is divided into several
rooms, and to instance tho number
of patients and tho insnflkiont ac
commodation provided, it is only
necessary to stale that in rooms, ap
parently 12xlt, there are heds for
three or four patients. In any civil.
ized country, if such a stale of things
were permitted in common lodging
honscH the police would take the
matter in hand. Yet here, owing to
the parsimony of the Hoard of
Health, persons Buffering from n
hideous disease are compelled to
dwell in this wnj Still it must be
distinctly understood that the medi
cal olth-er.s are in no way responsible
for this. They do all in their power
to alleviate the evils of the case ; but
what is thu good of alleviation when
a total removal of the evil is what is
lk'.'tides these buildings there is a
cottage for the Supervisor, Mr. Van
Gil-sen, a pavilion also used as a
school-house, baths, storehouses,
kitchen and out-houses. A thorough
system of drainage is in force.
Apparently every patient is coin
tented and happy in the belief that
every possible means is being used
tor tlieir rcnei or cure. Ami we
must say that those who have the
superintendence, Dr.s. Fitch and
Hodgcrs and Mr. Van Giesen, are
three of the kindest and best men
for such a work that it has ever been
our fortune to meet. To say they
are beloved by the patients falls far
short of the truth idolized would be
And there is another who feels as
great, if not greater, a love for these
unhappy people. Her Majesty the
Queen is constant in her visits of
condolence, sympathy and comfort
to the Hospital. Every time she
comes she brings them prc&cnls, and
news of tlieir relatives and friends
and last but not least, assurances of
her undying love and interest for
them. She lias been known to come
down on foot at 0 o'clock iu .the
morning to comfort some unhappy
one. Where can we find a better
example of the truth of her title
the Mother of her People?
A few statistics of the disease and
tho hospital will perhaps bo interest
ing. Every patient is medically ex
amined at least every 10 days, and
the whole history of each, case from
day to day is taken down in a book
for reference. Many of these ac
counts arc highly interesting, not
only to medical men hut also to the
ordinary reader. Photographs are
also taken of each patient when they
come in, and from time to time
afterwards, and a marked improve
ment cannot fail to be noticed. It
is calculated that 004 out' of 700
attacked by this discae have had it
preceded by syphilis, so that it may
be reckoned that this disease will
only attack the lecherous portion of
our community and their olfspring.
Out of 128 admitted since the open
ing of the hospital (! have died,
about 20 discharged as cured, and
2(3 scut to Molokai.

bert every success iu this new enter

him their support in return for the

Hv courtesy of Deputy Marshal
Dayton, we learn the following: A
Chinaman named Ah Pan who kept
a little shop at Monnnlua was out on
horoc-back on Wednesday trying to
purchase pigs. Returning in com
pany with four others, Ins horse fell
with him and he struck his left side
against a stone. This happened near
Aea mauka of the Ewa road. When
picked up lie was insensible. He
was taken to his own place and ato
some food. His parlner left him at
1 o'clock on Thursday morning and
returning sooji after daylight he
found him dead. The Marshal sent
an olllcer this morning to investigate
who reported that no ribs were
broken and that death resulted from
internal hemorthage caused by the
Ice Cream, iu any quantity, can
always be had at the Elite Ice Cream
Tin: Hand pavilion has boon mov
ed from the lawn immadiatcly iu
front of the Hotel to the corner on
the Ewa side. This will greatly add
to the appearance of the lawn, and
will also, we think, give a better
view of the front of tho Hotel, as
now that the trees arc cut down the
leally imposing appearance of the
Hotel becomes apparent.
Tin: other day worth' medico
was driving along the street in his
carriage when he saw a young lady
stepping across tho street towards
him. The face seemed familiar, and
scenting a. possible patient lie drew
up his horse. The young lady got
in, and after a little chaff the gentle
man asked where she wanted him to
go. On getting tho directions ho
drove at a rapid pace, and soon ar
rived at the destination. Ills fair
companion stepped out, and to the
astonishment of our scientific friend
proffered him a quarter. On re
covering from his astonishment ho
found the young lady had mistaken
his caniagc for an express.
