THE LEPER HOSPITAL OUT OF
To have located the Leper Hospi
tal ou FishcrMan's Point was a seri
ous mistake, and to retain it tiicrc is
the perpetuation of a serious mis
take. We concede that in some
respects the site is especially
adapted to the purpose for which it
is used, particularly by its being
near to, and partly enclosed by, the
uca, so that isolation from outside
intercourse is easily secured. "We
also admit that another site, equally
good hi all respects, would be dilll
ctdt to procure within a reasonable
distance of Honolulu. Neither arc
n unmindful of the cost of remov
ing the buildings now in use to ano
ther locality or the erection of new
buildings, and of the objection that
might be urged against any change
of location .on that score. But,
after allowing due weight and full
force to the ditllculties ami objee
tions indicated, there is one con
bidcration on the contra side which
outweighs tlicm all. The Leper
Hospital, (standing where it uow
6tands, is a virtual and conspicuous
advertisement of our national mis
fortune. Placed right by the chati'
nel where our shipping, our foreign
commerce, and our passenger tralllc
enter, it is one of the llr&t objects
that presents itself to the eye of the
visitor, the tourist, and the intending
tettlcr, and palpably proclaims that
a curse hangs over the land and a
loathsome disease gnaws at the vitals
of the nation. The natives and
many old foreign residents here do
not entertain a superlative dread of
this frightful malady. "Familiarity
breeds contempt," is measurably
true even of leprosy. Hut people
'irom foreign lands, where leprosy is
unknown, regard it in another light
und with other feelings. In those
countries where nothing is known of
this foul disease beyond what people
read, everybody contemplates it with
feelings of horror and disgust. Just
incy people coming to these lsl
nds for the first time, and on en
tering the harbor having the leper
establishment pointed out to them
and being told that those buildings
are fdled with lepers 1 And then
these people returning to their homes
in other lands and reporting this
fact ! If Mich things have not a
tendency to deter visitors and bet
tiers, and even capital, from coming
into the coutry, then we have a
wrong conception of men and things.
If, as has been repeatedly said, a
good name abroad is of the first im
portance to little Hawaii, tho Hoard
of Health would do well to select
eome less conspicuous spot for our
poor unfortunate lepers. It ought
uot to be an impossible thing to find
ii suitable place aloug the sea-side
within a few miles of Honolulu, and
the. extra cost involved by the change
in warranted by the circumstances
of the case.

It is intended to mako tho public
gardens t tho corner of Kcaumoku
und King rtrcuts a nursery, whence
supplies of young trees, &c, can be
obtained to re-clothe from time to
time our mountains. Less than a
century go it is said Mt. Tantalus
was clothed with forests, and now
every one can see how bare its sides
arc. Here, too, it is intended to
grow all sorts of plants which may
be useful for cultivation in these
islands ; or which may prove useful
in industrial processes. The beauti
ful as well as useful will be cared
for, and it is intended to make these
" A jov forever."
A gardener (who has not yet arriv
ed) and a laborer will permanently
reside in them. A forester has ar
rived this last week who will eventu
ally take up his quarters in the
mountains as soon as a suitable spot
can be selected to locate his cottage
and those of tho laborers who will
be under him. It is proposed to re
clothe the hills at Makiki first, and
to plant Hawaiian trees of quick
growth in order to induce a more
permanent water supply. Forty
years ago tlic 31akiki stream was
permanent; now that the forests are
gone it runs only when there is a
freshet. And fiom experience in
every other land the replanting of
the hills will make a great change
for the better in our water supply.
Now our planters will be able to
have new varieties of'cane tested be
fore launching out into costly ex
periments, and possiuly tliey may
also in time get an entirely different
kind of industry, suggested to them
from the experiment? in this Botanic
garden. We have every hope that
the enterprise will succeed and be
ultimately of the greatest benefit to
Hr.Avr rains at Ivona and Kau.

" Pnori.E who live in glass houses
shouldn't throw stones." Our daily
contemporary is getting into trouble
over its latest personalities. Perhaps
if the records of all the persons con
nected witli it were published, some
very unflattcrirfg revelations might
be made. One of our most peaceful
and honorable citizens was wantonly
attacked in its columns yesterday
morning, and shortly afterwards,
when the editor was invited to carry
out his threat of "wiping the floor"
with some one, he backed down. He
wasn't on. A characteristic of Am
erican journalism of the lowest class
is said to ho the introduction of the
personal vilification of an opponent
in place of sound argument. Every
man of true manly instincts in this
town will, we arc sure, discourage
any attempt to introduce such a
system amongst us. General disap
probation ought to be shown every
time such an attempt is made.
During this week an appeal was
heard by Judge McCully from the
Waialua court. Two little boys, one
of 8 years and the other of 9, were
tried before a Hawaiian Justice for
malicious mischief (pulling some
peanut vines out of a Chinaman's
garden and eating the nuts.) He
sentenced them one toll and tho
other to 12 years in the Reformatory
School, notwithstanding the fact
that both boys were living with their
parents and were quiet and well
lichavcd. Judge McCully reversed
the sentence. What an outcry
would be raised if this were done to
children in any other land. And if
it were strictly carried out, how
many of our rising generation would
be free from punishment for
puecadiliocs of this kind? This, we
think, strongly shows tho necessity
of a definite control over these Haw
tdiau magistrates by the authority of
the Supreme Court. Such decisions
On Thursday night a social was
held in the parlors of Fort street
Church. Mrs. II. A. P. Carter and
Mrs. P. C. Jones, jr., were the host
esses of the evening, and were ably
assisted in their multifarious duties
by many other ladies. Tho attend
ance was largo and varied, and
everybody, young and old, enjoyed
themselves thoroughly. About nine
o' clock tho inevitable supper was in
troduced, and the good things were
handed round by the young Indies
and gentlemen present. By this
time the company had grouped
themselves in little parties, and the
whole presented a hoinc-liko and yet
festive appearance. The intellectual
amusements were a pianoforte solo,
bv Miss Dickson t a double qunrt
cttc, "Soft limiting in the Air," and
recitations by Miss Prcscott,
"Standing at the Beautiful Gate,"
and " Forever Never ;" an address
on mum-sociables by the pastor, and
