THE "LOYAL" ADVERTISER.
A more glaring, sweeping, and
untruthful libel never appeared in a
public ptint than that found in the
following extract from the Weekly
Advertiser: " The question is not
docs the lung seek political inllu
ence? but, rather does he use his
influence to strengthen the Hawaiian
party? If so why? The answer to
that question is the key to the whole
political situation. It is because the
whites set themselves against him,
speak evil of him, try to coerce him,
talk freely of the case with which he
could be "set aside" if they chose
to exert their power. It is because
so many white men despise the
brown man, and do uot even take
pains to let their contempt be hid."
Tho free and disrespectful use
which lias been made for the Sover
eign's name by newspapers and in
general talk cannot be .justified ; but
truth demands it to be said that this
is the result, not the cause, of the
"King's seeking political influence."
If the writer of the above-quoted
paragraph is not aware of this fact
lie is badly read in the last ten years'
history of this country. Among
those who were foremost in seeming
the King's election arc men who aie
also foremost in disapproving of his
seeking to influence "electors and
elected." They hold that a Sover
eign should keep himself unspotted
from politics. But to say that these
"white men despise the brown man,"
because they object, on principle, to
their Kulcr's participation in active
politics, is base calumny. Is this
the carrying out of the policy of
"conciliation" we saw announced
two or three weeks ago?
CiTo-poudence is solicited on the to .
ic? ot the day, in what may become so.

LEPROSY IN THE SCHOOLS.
Editoii 1)i;i.i.i;tix: Exactly what
Mr. Pinker in his letter, which ap
peared in your Saturday's issue,
means to convey does not appear to
be very definite. I5y its general
tenor, however, when narrowly
scanned, I should presume that the
"late physician to the Queen of
Madagascar" intends that the weight
of his authority should bo added to
that of Dr. Fitch, in bo far as tlmt
gentleman's advocacy of tho non
scgrcgation and lenient treatment of
infection spicadcis, is concerned.
Dr. Parker thinks that there exists
an unnecessary alarm, here, as well
as in America, in regard to the con
tagion of tho disease. If he inter
prets this alarm as unneccessaiy,
according to Fitcluan or (libsoniitn
rules of political expediency, it may
be a reason, though a oery had one,
why lopeis should not bo dealt with
in subserviency to ideas of public
protection, and in accordance at
least with the general foieign senti
ment as existent "liercnndin Amer
ica." ' Mr. Parker, however, should
not fnil to consider tho fact,
that from ond single case of leprosy
imported here not move than forty
years ago, the disease has spread to
thousands, and Unit now. not less
disease, and that twelve thousand
alllicledpcrsons, according to the
statistics of the Kalawao settlement,
have already gone to "that bourne
from whence no traveler vol urns."
Neither should he forget that it lias
already started its ravage, among
foreigners. Pardon me; but the
necessity for plain talk in a matter
like this compels me to say that Mr.
Parker is either very ignorant of
facts, or lamentably absurd, when
he says: "It seems to bethought
the height of justieo to apply to a
disease a pi inciplc which, if applied
to crime, would at once cause a great
outcry." If a rcr sonavlcsiicioti
of crime attaches to any person,
the aulhoiities, whoever they might
be, would be rightly esteemed dere
lict in their duly, should they fail to
bring that person before a competent
tribunal to weigh the case and decide
according to the evidence, lias more
than this been asked by any one
here in the matter of leper suspects ?
Were we guided jn our opinions by
the utterances of Mr. Fitch, whom
this Government has seen lit to con
tinue in, so important an ofllec as
that of general medical supervisor
of lepers, we have a right to suspect
nearly every native, and many for
eigners, as having: the disease. Of
the natives, he says in his Kcport to
the Legislature of 1882, "practi
cally all have the disease" that is,
syphilis, and that 7and leprosy, are
What sign of unnecessary fear, or
what "semblance of panic has been
exhibited here by foreigners, beyond
the fact that a few have quietly left
the country whom rumor credits as
having done so to avoid the possibi
lity of contagion to themselves and
their families. Is it unnecessary
fear ; is it panic, when teachers in a
quiet and unostentatious manner,
ask (not demand) that scholars
should be examined? And so with
parents who have it on Hip. most
irrefragable authority that leprosy
does exist in nearly all, if not in all,
the Public Schools to which they
send their children. Can they be
accused of panic because they ask
for a medical examination, and the
removal of dangerous scholars a
thing which, if the Board of Educa
tion did half its duty, would have
long since been attended to without
even a request from either teachers
or parents.. Mr. Parker knows, or
should know, that his crime simile
is the very opposite of what he al
leges, that it would be far more
fair to put it thus: That many
lepers, long since recorniztd us
such, arc allowed their liberty to
day. The injustice is, not to the
leper; but to the healthy commu
nity . What, I ask, would be thought
of the Executive if it should stub
bornly refuse to separate criminals
that had been regularly tried and
adjudged guilty befoie a competent
tribunal? Such treatment is exactly
what lepers arc receiving here.
Mr. Gibson's own words, in the
Nuhou of 188JJ, were: "Leave not
a leper loose in the land." Had he
acted up to them, the writer of this,
as will as others in the community,
could have forgiven him many of his
other faults. Osi; Coxcr.itxm).
QUEEN VICTORIA, NO POLITICIAN.
Kniron 1U'i.u:tin: An article in
one of your contemporaries the
Weekly AJvcrtiscr in reply to
something that had previously ap
peared in tho (,'ur.cUc, contains, in
my opinion, a great deal of truth ;
but it is not all truth. I would now
lefcr parlicuhuly to one statement:
of Queen Victoria it is said, "she.
and every other monarch of England
have been among the most active
politicians in their country." I
don't believe this; that is, 1 don't
believe it to bo true. I don't think
any one who is acquainted with the'
workings of political matters in
England believes it. Some English
nionarchs "have been among the
most active politicians in their coun
try," and their political activity
made them unpopular among their
people. Hut Queen Victoria is not
one of those nionarchs. In no part
of her long reign has she been an
active politician ; but from tho very
beginning of her sovereignty has
carefully avoided mixing in politics,
To this fact is largely due very
largely the loyally and devotion of
her subjects, unparalleled in the his
tory of the British Empire. Queen
Victoria "reigns but not rules." It
is not denied that she has always
taken a deep interest in the politics
of her empire, but in no sense has
she over been an active politician. (

Mr. J. M. Davidson moved that
