The world over, among gentlemen,
whether in the so-called humble, or
in the so-called higher walks of life,
as well among the snide miners of
Poker Flat as in London socigtyy it
is an absolute rule never to bring
into any public controversy, ov into
unpleasant publicity of any kind, the
name of a lady. She has not the
man's privilege of asserting her own
rights or of defending herself, cer
tainly not to the same extent nor in
the same forcible way in which men'
can take care of themselves. Hut a
lady's name is always sacred.
A citizen lately wrote a communi
cation over his own name, which was
published In our columns, calling at
tention to what he regarded as a
public wrong on the part of Mr.
Gibson, the President of the Hoards
of Education and Health, in respect
to the public schools. His statement
was met by the Advertiser with an
editorial denial of its truth "as far
as Mr. Gibson is concerned." Then
came the correspondence on the sub
ject with which the public is familiar,
attended by the protest to the foreign
representatives, on the same subject
as the original letter.
The sense of the community is
unmistakable, but the contents of
' the letter and article in the Adver
tiser on the subject, referring to a
lady, arc grossly and inexcusably

ic ! the day, or what may become '-o.

THE LEPROSY QUESTION.
Emtoh Hl'm.i:iin: Had Dr. Par
ker allowed my rectification of Mr.
Ashford's letter to stand unchal
lenged, any communication of mine
would have been henceforth with
held from the public press. As it is
the responsibility of the continuation
of the controversy rests with him.
My simple defence to X.'s lettcj', in
Wednesday's Advertiser, will be the
publication of the following docu
IIosoi.uu',. Feb lUlli, 1881.
His Excellency W. M. Gibson,
President of the Hoard of Health,
Dear Sir: I have to tender you my
resignation as Examining Physician
of Suspected Lepers. In doing so I
will state my reasons :
To-day only have I had the op
portunity of leading in the daily
papers the correspondence on Lep
rosy in the Schools, having, as you
know, been absent to Kahului. and
too much engaged yestjjiday to lead
A letter of Dr. Parker's in the
Hui.i.iniK, and tlio article of Pater
familias in to-day's Advertiser, have
convinced mo that I ain entirely at
variance with the views of the Hoard
on the question of leprosy.
I know my duties, have so far ex
ecuted faithfully my instructions,
fearlessly and honestly expressed my
opinion when asked.
To-day I must come to thu con
clusion that neither my (services nor
my views arc agreeable, and, in duty
to myself, respectfully decline to
continue my .services.
It must be obvious to every one,
as well as to myself, that two of the
Government physicians, Drs. Fitch
and Parker, enjoy the confidence of
the Hoard, and as 1 am entirely at
variance with their views, I simply
1 wish my l csignalion to take ef
fect from the first of the present
month, as 1 have not been employed
from that date, made no examina
tion and therefore am not entitled to
I remain, Your Excellency's Re
spectful Servant, G. TuorssuAr.
This document, written before
X.'s letter appeared in the Adver
tiser, 1 think answers most of the
points made by the Hoard in the
present controversy. 1 sav the
Hoard ptuposcly, as the Advertiser
entirely endorses the action of the
Hoard in the matter, and X.'s letter
could not have been allowed to ap
pear without the sanction of the
I will simply add that the sugges
tion made that I had nothing to do
but to obey orders, is, if any thing,
extraordinary. It never was im
pressed upon me by the Hoard that
my position was to be a subordinate
one, and compel mc, so to speak, to
relinquish my own identity, and
identify myself with the said Hoard's
doings, whatever they might be. If
that was to be the case I am only
sorry that I did not resign sooner.
As to the other accusation of my
being jealous of Drs. Pilch and Par
ker it is simply ludicrous and requires
no answer. G. Tkoussi:au.
Honolulu, 20th February, 1881.
THE OTHER SIDE.
Ennou Hullltix: You will ad
mit that most questions have two
sides a serious side and a comic
side. Some people look at one side,
and some at the other: not many
arc capable of seeing the two sides.
It sometimes happens that the se
rious aspect of one matter is percep
tible to a person, whilst of another
he has no eye but for the comic.
Your daily contemporary affords an
illustration of the last assertion, lie
finds "amusement" in that part of
"Whitaker's lecture which refers to
the Hawaiian "protest," but in that
famous "protest" itself he has never
seen anything in the' least degree
"amusing." I low strange! My men
tal make-up is entirely the reverse.
After reading the Advertiser's edito
rial I was expecting to find some fun
in the New Zealand statesman's ad
dress; but I was disappointed. One
or two slight inaccuracies, yes ; but
not so funny in my eye as to raise a
smile. When I got through the
abstract of the lecture, I involunta
rily repeated to myself what I once
saw in print: "More truth than
poetry ! " 1 may here observe, paren
thetically, that the Advertiser falls
into a "palpable inaccuracy" in ac
cusing Mr. Whitakcr of saying that
"this government is run by a few
American sugar planters:" what he
did say was,' "the real government
is carried on in the interest of sugar
speculators in the United States." A
wide diffcience. Hut, to lcturn to
the protest, this always seemed to
me such an inexpressibly funny thing
that 1 have smiled loudly over it lots
of times. Like Mr. Whitakcr, who
calls it "a most extraordinary docu
ment," 1 never could sec the serious
bide. Even in my sleep I sometimes
dream about it, and when I do I am
bound to wake up in roars of laugh
ter. Jack, my mate who sleeps in
the adjoining room, gels so mad
with mo for "disturbing the quiet
of the night," that he threatens to
hand me over to the authorities
either as a common nuisance or as a
dangerous lunatic. Really, I can't
help it: I wish I could: my friend,
the Advertiser, can only see the
serious side of Hint "extraordinary
document," and I can only see the
comic side. Vat Shall I do?
LEPROSY IN THE SCHOOLS. ,
Kdiioii Hullltin: A correspon
dent of the Advertiser, who errone
ously calls himself "Fair Play,"
says that Mr. Ashford's letters were
"nothing more than a desire to pick
at the Hoard of Health." If Mr.
Ashford, or anybody else thought it
necessary to "pick at the Hoard of
Health" then it wns his duty to do
so. ' 'There is occasion for an ex
pcrieuccd young man to come out
and try to dictate or advise the
Hoard," if the Hoard neglects its
duly, as has been clcaily proved by
its delay in postponing the, examina
tion of the pupils in the schools for a
month after the President, who is
practically the Hoard, wan petitioned
to examine them. Mr. Ashford's
statements have not "been proved to
be totally wrong" and it is his duty
to, "interfere with a subject" in
which he knows there has been gross
negligence. It is a pity that there
arc not more men in the community
who will come forward and expose
acts of official neglect or mismana
gement that come under their notice.
"Fair Play!" "Which in this in
stance means one who wishes to
curry favor with the man in"powcr.
