' HAWAIIAN LEPERS.
Referring to the excitement caused
in San Francisco by the arrival of a
leper from these islands, a gentle
man writes from the Coast as fol
"By extracts from the daily
papers I sec that a female leper
from the islands is creating a com
motion. Strenuous efforts have been
made by the Chronicle and other
anti-treaty interests to induce the
Board of Health to quarantine all
vessels from the islands until it has
been successfully proven that there
is no leprosy on board. Dr. Mac
allistcr has been true blue and fought
this thing right along, and has
succeeded in lighting it down."
"Any vessel bringing leprous
passengers -will be placed in quaran
tine unless the captain or owners of
said vessel give bonds to return the
patients whence they came. This is
a very satisfactory solution of the
question and it behooves the authori
ties at the islands to exercise more
vigilance about the departure of the
In tnc case
referred to, it was
known by the authorities here that
the leper was about to leave the
Kiusrdom, vet they remained in their
normal condition of undignified
The following extract from an
article in the Wasp bears upon the
MIKE AND THi: LEPERS.
" Of all the sensations which the
Chronicle ever endeavored to make,
that which it is now struggling to
create regarding the Sandwich Island
woman, said to be afflicted with
leprosy, is the most absurd. A
moment's consideration of the facts
will show this to any one. The
woman who, if she is afllicted with
the disease at all, has it in a very
mild character is endeavoring to
pass through the city on a trip
around the world. This arouses the
Chronicle, to vast headlines of pre
tended indignation and consterna
tion. Not many months ago a little
item appeared in the daily papers to
the effect that an express wagon,
loaded with sixteen loathsome
Chinese lepers, was driven through
the principal streets to the wharf of
the Pacific Mail steamer, where they
embarked for China. The fact that
this city is so infested with Chinese
lepers lepers, too, who are rotting
with the disease that sixteen of
them can be gathered up for a single
shipment calls for no protest by the
Chronicle, yet it would have its
readers believe that the immediate
safety of the entire community is
endangered because one woman, said
to be a leper, desires to pass through
the city. It is u fact which every
person in a position to know will
acknowledge, that Chinese lepers by
the score arc living in this city un
disturbed, rolling cigars which white
men smoke and washing linen for
hundreds of households. This the
Chronicle does not consider to be of
sufficient importance to' even notice,
excent casually, when a wagon load
of the lepers, too diseased to be of
further service in laurfdry or factory,
are shipped to China to die. That
the Chronicle then, knowing these
facts, should assume such a startled
and horrified mien, when iuformed
of the case of the Saudwieh Island
women, is simply ridiculous, yet
perfectly understood. It is because
the woman comes from the Sandwich
Islands th at that sheet is so much
more alarmed at the prospect of her
passing through the city than it ever
has been over the continued exis
tence in the ciy of scores of Chinese
lepers. The extent the Chronicle
carries its insane zeal on behalf of
the eastern sugar refiners, who have
(subsidized it to attack San Fran
cisco commerce with the islands,
would possess every clement of a
first-class joke did it not seriously
afiect the business interest of this
The American bark Spartan, bound
from New York via the Cape of
Good Hope, to Honolulu, got be
calmed between the Island of Agin
court and Formosa on the 31st ultimo.
This channel, being little known , Capt .
Crosslcy, of the Spartan, deemed it
advisable to lower a boat to proceed
in advance of the bark, which was
drifting rapidly through the channel
with the current j" the captain's son,
who is the chief ofllcer of the ves
sel, was put in command of the
boat, with two or throe men, with a
few day's supply of water and pro
visions, with orders,' should any
dangers present themselves to imme
diately signal the ship, so that she
might anchor, or do otherwise, until
sulllcient wind spring up to give her
steering way. AVhilc the boat was
through the numerous is-
lands, a strong breeze sprang up, so
so the ship signalled the boat to re
turn, but it was by this time hidden
from the vessel by some islands, and
did not comply with the signal, so
the bark tacked up and down the
channel the remainder of the day,
and all the day following, but without
picking up the missing boat; she
then put into the harbour of Keclung
and forthwith despatched a messen
ger to Tamsui, to procure assistance,
and to communicate with the United
States' Consular-Agent there, who
at once enlisted the' services of a
steam-launch, but simultaneously to
her leaving for the scene of the mis
hap, a typhoon sprang up which pre
vented her from proceeding to sea ;
meantime the s.s. China arrived,
and she was promptly despatched to
search for the unfortunate boat's
crew: she steamed in among the
Islands of the channel, above des
cribed, and kept a sharp look out
and, at intervals, blew her steam
whistle, but her search proved fruit
less, although the natives, who swam
oif to her, wore interrogated as to
whether they had seen any trace of a
boat with foreigners in her, so the
s.s. China returned to Tamsui.
It is to be hoped that the boat's
crew have been either picked up by
some vessel or arc safely located
among the fishermen of some of the
many islands in the vicinity. Further
efforts are being made to more
thoroughly investigate the affair, and
it is to he hoped they may be crowned
with success. Amoy Gazette, Aug.
