'THOUGHTS ABOUT LEPROSY
Attempts ,to conceal the fact,i thn
our national curse leprosy is
alarmingly prevalent nt the present
'tiliic,1 can be productive of no go&l.
LTho only come, dictnted by wisdom
fiiumnnily, and patiiotism, is ,td
Incccpt the fact and adopt prompt
n'n'd encigclie measures for the sup-
presHion and ultimate extermination
of the cil. Wc aicnot insensible
to tlic dilliculties in tho way of those
who have the direction of the sani
tary nffairs of tho nation, nor aro
wc inclined to occupy our timo in
raking up loathsome dctnils of a
disagieeablc subject or to fill our
space with querulous cavillings about
mismanagement j but aic actuated
by a sincere desiro to assist tho
authorities in stemming the torrent
of destruction and saving the race.
The suggestions that we have to
offer concerning leprosy and the
duty of the Government in connec
tion therewith are the result of much
'thought, nnd nic based on a careful
study of all the facts, within our
icacli, bearing on the subject. '"
The total number of lepcis now in
this Kingdom, according to the best
nvajialjlc data, is not less than fifteen
hundred, or between thiee and (bur
per cent, of the entire native popu
lation. Of this number, only about
six hundred nnd fifty, or considera
bly less than one half, arc now " at
the leper settlement on Molokni.
The balance, with tho exception of
between sixty and seventy in the
branch Hospital at Knkanko, are
scattered throughout tho country
and can bo found in every district
on every island in the group. How
many of the lepers now nt large are
icsiding in this district, cannot, of
course, be known with absolute cer
tainty; bnt the number in and
around Honolulu, at the present
time, can hardly bo less than two
bundled, and may be considerably
moro. This state of tilings naturally
causes a feeling of uneasiness nnd
dissatisfaction in the community.
This feeling is evidently on the in
crease, and is likely nt no distant
.day to culminate, in such a popular
dcroajid for the arrest and segrega
tion of lepers as would be impossi
ble to resist.
Under thcc ydrcumstnnccs the
duty of the Uoardof Health is plain.
Tlic isolation of all poisons aillictcd
with this disease has been for years,
andjtj uoA' the, avowed policy of 'the
Government.' The obligations of
law and of humanity alike demand
that this policy be carried oit fully,
faithfully,' and impartially. At tlic
same time all unnecessary harshness
a should bo avoided, and every possi
"blo consideration shown for the
feelings, the comfort, and the in
terests of those who ,aic so unfortu
nate as to come within tlic operation
of tlic law. The measures which,
in our opinion, ought to be adopted
wc Bhall indicate in our next issue.
Correspondence Is solicited on tho lop.
io of the day, or what may become so.
We reserve the right to excise pine

commodious stable and wagon-loft

make this tlic largest and finest
livery stable in town when com

"Advkktisi: in the Bulletin," is
the moral of our song. Two adver

'the object of the advertisers had
been gained in that short time.
Yestcrday one of tlic most valuable
provisions of tlic nciy liquor law was
put into operation. A -warning was
servdd on all saloon keepers and
sellers of intoxicating liquor not to
sell or give any of tho same to a
young man who lately as our readers
arc aware attempted suicide under
the inlluucc of liquor.
Oun correspondent, J. II., yester
day mentioned in his letter the case
of n young stallion which had been
brutally ill-treated. Wc have made
further inquiries mid are satisfied
that the polico ought to be instruct
ed to find out tlic offender, and have
him heavily piiiiiehqd,for,sijch wan
