" On the resignation of Mr. A.
Brickwood from the Postmaster
(iencralship, in 1881, Mr. Kapcna
was appointed to that important
oftlcc. During his incumbency
as. Postmaster-General, the Post
oliicc lias undergone many changes,
all of which have been for the Letter.
The most important step that has
been taken, is that of Hawaii hav
ing joined the Universal Postal
Union, a step to which Mr. Kapcna's
predecessor was very much averse."
The above quotation from Satur
day's issue of the I'i-scr is a splen
did illustration of the lie insinua
tory so ficqucntly indulged in in
those columns, against people whom
the 2'ier thinks arc not in a position
to reply or will not see it.
Mr. Brickwood served the country
long and faithfully in the Post
Oflicc, and' made it what is now1.
Those of our old kamaaiiwa who
remember what the oflicc was when
lie took it, and what it was when he
left it, about the middle of 1881,
will understand to whom credit is
dic for greater part of what the
oliicc is now. "What improvements
have been introduced since1 arc cer
tainly not the work of ' the last ex
1 M. G., but, as is well-known, of
bis assistant, Mr. Peterson, although
the latter has been self sacrificing
enough to allow his chief to take, all
the credit of it.
As'to the particular instance quot
ed above we are in a position to, say
authoritatively that long before Mr.
Kapcna was even thought of as a pro
bable P. M. G., negotiations
were entered into to admit Hawaii
into the Universal Postal Union.
During Mr. Kapcna's term of office
these were simply cairicd to a suc
cessful issue, but the honor of in
migurating'thcm belongs to his pre
decessor. Here is what is said of Mr. Brick
wood by a visitor here sonic years
ago who afterwards came back to
these islands. "He certainly was
desirous of .learning new things and
of having the best methods ini prac
tice in the work' of the office. No
mail-agent or other person acquain
ted with such business ever came
here but he was interviewed by Mr.
Brickwood with the solo desire of
learning what was done in other
countries iu'this line and of putting
it into practice here if it was an im
provement. He did not nt first
Jjcsiro'to have Hawaii hi the Postal
Union, as he did not know whether
that would turn out well or ill,
but when he saw that it was turning
out well he devoted his attention to
the matter, and, but for his removal
from ollice would no,doubt have car
ried it into effect."
The above is the candid, unbias
sed testimony of an impartial man,
and shows the true character of
the 'Titer' remarks.
In our.yc8terduy'i issue wc nrc
made (unintentionally) to say, by
mi oversight in reading the proofs,
thai the illumination and ilrc-works
were over by 7:15. This makes the
remarks following Hint statement
more eevctc thnn they should be.
In our article wo had written
down the hour m 9:15, and sowc
believed it was ; but having referred
to spine fi lends who were present wo
Jlnd that, as the Band did not cease
till 10:5, it must have been nearly
at that hour thnt the fire-works
ceased. The Illuminations remained
much longer. '

A Ghastly Mockery."
Editou Bulletin : Your journal
having on several occasions urged
UiW necessity of having- n resldcnf
physician for tho lepers on Molokai,
I trust you will bo willing to publish'
thcfollowing pertinent extracts from
a report of Dr. N. B. Emerson to
the Board of Health. Tlio report in
question was the outcome 'of a visit
of inspection which Dr. Emerson
made to the Leper Settlement in
March last, nii'd can' he found among'
the printed documents laid before
tho Legislature by tho late Ministry.
The doctor says :
Mi'fo come to the great and Jm
portant question of the sanitary and
medical wants of the lepers at Kala
wao J 'these may" be summed up in
ono sentence, the need of a physi
cian to reside among them, and I
should also add a certain number of
nurses. On asking them "what were
their troubles, their pilikias, they
almost' with ono voice said tlidt' their'
one pilikia was tho disease they
bore in their bodies and their one
need wns thnt of a physician. Said
one of the most intelligent and
thoughtful among them, himself n
great sufferer, ' It is not that wc
have any hope or expectation that
any physician can cure us of leprosy,
but that wc wish some doctor to
abide with us and care for us in the
numerous other maladies which con
stantly prey upon us.' Similar ex
pressions were made by so many
and repeated iu such a variety of
forms, that I could not but be con
vinced this was their sincere wish
and represented the sentiments of
the majority. Before ' leav
ing this point let mo say tho Govern
ment has done much for them in
giving them this spacious and fertile
laud for their home', and in' satisfy
ing so many of their wants, but its
whole duty to this unfortunate class
will not have been .done until it shall
have provided for this great want of
the Leper Seltlcmeut at Kalawao.
Leprosy is the chief but not the only
disease from which they suffer.
They arc specially subject to affec
tions of the boi els and lungs, to
fevers, dropsies, and other inter
current maladies; and their whole
bodies to ulcers and putrifying sores.
All these require the constant atten
tion of a physician."
The above statement of the case
by- Dr. Emerson is simple common
sense, and must carry conviction to
any niiiid not blinded by prejudice
or pelf interest. To pretend'that the
wants" bfVomc seven hundred per
sons iu the condition above describ
ed enn' bo properly attended to by
any physician spending a couple of
days at' the Settlement once in n
mouth or two is, as great an insult
to common sense as it' is to human
ity. Yet this is precisely what Dr.
Fitch is now advocating and using
all his influence with the Board of
Health to have continued. Speak
ing of the provision which former
administrations had made for tho
medical wants of the-, people, Jri
Fitch in his published report to the
Board used this language: "Now
to a people just emerging from bar
barism, hardly conscious of their
own necessities, with faint ideas of
tho value of medical treatment, such
work as this is nothing but u ghastly
fnockery." The doctor could hardly
have chosen words in which to des
cribe more fitly the policy he is
himself now trying to have perpetu
ated. There is reason to believe that the
absurdity of his position is fully ap
preciated by the Board of Health.
The publicly expressed views of Ihc
President and tho known intelli
gence of the other members give
full assurance that such is the case,
and that the action of the Board will
bo guided by other 'and iwisei conn-
