In our last issue wc published the
statement of Mr. Van Gcisen rela
tive to the attack made upon him
by ten of the leper patients at the
Branch Hospital. The statement
of the Superintendent, in many
points, speaks for itself ; wc i egret
exceedingly that we were, in the in
terests of justice and humanity, un
able to obtain the other side of the
story, but we hope that, before
many drtys have elapsed, it will be
made public. There are always two
sides to a story and the fact that
seven lepers were hurried off to Mo
lokai, without the authority of the
Government medical olllcer, because
they had been implicated in an
attack tiiion the .Superintendent is,
of itself, calculated to arouse sus
picion. Seven men are sent to their
living tomb at the will of the Super
intendent who staled himself that lie
only had charge of the "furnishing
There were twelve policemen in
the Branch Hospital at the time of
the assault, eight of whom were sup
posed to be on duty. Yet the ten
patients were able, at half past three
o'clock in the morning, to leave
their rooms, which ought to have
been locked, and pass through tho
grounds, until they reached the
house of the Superintendent, without
attracting observation. How peace
fully must the eight policemen have
slumbered in the bracing morning
air, while supposed to be vigilant!
Tlicsc ten men were able to enter
the house and go upstairs, to tho
bedroom door of the .Superintendent)
without being heard. The atmos
phere al Kakaaka must be unusually
bracing to cause so deep a slumber
on the part of the occupants of tho
Three of tho ten assailants were
to be sent, on that very day, to Mo-
lokai ; the other seven were not to
be sent, but were to lcmain and re
ceive further medical treatment.
The medical ofllccr was out of town.
Tho Secretary of tho Board of
Health, himself a physician, had not
been to the Branch Hospital within
twelve hours of the assault, and the
Superintendent had decided to send
the seven men, who had offended
him, to Molokai. 'Where was the
Board of Health ? Has the Board
nothing to say as to the disposition
of the patients directly under its
charge ? Arc the members of the
Board in the hands of the Superin
tendent? Can it be that this ofllcial,
who has no power beyond " furnish
ing," is allowed to retain his ap
pointment without an inquiry being
held into the circumstance which
was known to the President of the
Board of Health ?
The men were "placed in the
cells." Ten men in two tinvcn
tilatcd, suffocating holes. Five men
in a space that was not six feet long
and four feet wide, where they only
had room to sit on the floor and
stretch out their legs. There they
remained for fifteen hours, by order
of the Superintendent, an ordinary
policeman. This is an example of
the m.tnncr in which, as Mr. Gibson
says, "no one should be dragged
like a criminal or an animal, but they
should bo treated with every loving
care." This is a Christian land and
this is a Christian community ; yet
ten unfortunate men, suffering from
an incurable disease, who should be
treated with every possible consider
ation and kindness, arc treated
worse than dogs. This treatment
was by the order of a Government
official. Wc sincerely hope that it
was done without the knowledge of
any member of the Board of Health
or of any member of the Ministry.
The assault was reported at the Po
lice Station, yet an attack of ten
men upon one did not appear to the
officials there to be of sufficient im
portance to warrant an inquiry.
"The motive for the attack was
revenge." Revenge for what? There
must have been a cause for revenge.
The Policeman Superintendent said
that the cause for revenge was be
cause the patients thought that he
ordered them to be sent to Molokai,
and that he had power to keep them
at the Branca Hospital. Only three
of the ten assailants had been ordered
to Molokai. What was the motive
of the other seven, some of whom
were mere boys? The Policeman
Superintendent "values his own life
at more than that of all the lepers."
A nice man to hold such a position !
Wc say unhesitatingly Hint any man,
who can be called a man, who holds
such a position, should bo prepared
to risk bis life for the sake of any
single one of the poor unfortunate
people "placed under his charge and
care. Not his care, for the present
officer of this Government, of whom
we are speaking, has no care for
these unfortunate Hawaiians. lie
has no human feeling. He carries a
six-shooter openly in his pocket to
intimidate a few harmless, unfortu
nate people who arc placed in such a
wretched position under his ctrc.
A close cell was "good enough for
Wc said that this .Superintendent
had no human feeling. It may seem
a strong term to use, but when wo
mention two instances of his in
human character that occurred in
our presence, wo think the public
will endorse our opinion. A letter
was handed to this Superintendent
by the driver of an express. It was
from the mother of a child who had
been sent to tho Branch Hospital a
short time previously. She heard
that some of tho lepers wcro to bo
sent to Molokai and sho wrote a
tender, affectionate and loving letter
to ask if her child would bo among
the number. This Superintendent
read the letter aloud in the presence
of facveral gentlemen, ho laughed at
and ridiculed it aloud. Ho said,
"oh tho same old story, her beloved
child. Tell her no, he's not going."
The bearer of the letter said that the
mother wanted a written answer.
The Superintendent replied, "tell
her no, I haven't got any timo to
write an answer, I'm loo busy."
This was the answer sent by a human
being to a mother separated, possibly
forever, from her child.
Let us give another instance. A
gentleman came to the hospital and
was at once admitted, without any
hesitation on the pari of the guardian
at the gate, altliough the "old man
(presumably Mr. Gibson) sometimes
gave strict orders to admit nobody."
This gentleman asked to sec a pa
tient. The patient wns Sent for but
the answer was that lie was ill and
could not conic. A second message
and an extra messenger were sent
with instructions to bring him. The
boy came wrapped up, and with the
apparent impress on bis face of sick
ness, other than leprosy. When tho
boy left, the Superintendent was
asked what was the- complaint of the
lad. He replied, "I don't know,
I've got nothing to do with that,
the Sisters attend to that. Since
they've been here they attend to all
the doctoring and medicine." The
Superintendent was reminded that,
in his position, it was possibly "his
duty to inquire into the ailments of
the leper patients." Ho replied, "I
used to, but since the Sisters came
they've taken all that in hand, and I
don't bother myself." Here is an
example of kindness and humanity,
and here is an evident instance of
jealousy or spite, on the part of the
Superintendent, against the Sisters
who give their services gratuitously
to alleviate the sufferings of their
fellow creatures, while this bravado
walks around with a revolver to inti
midate. In concluding this subject wc can
only express our sincere hope that
the President and Members of the
Board of Health are ignorant, though
the' should not bo, of the modus
operandi of their officer, Mr. Van
Gcisen. This officer is placed in a
position which involves care, kind
ness and every possible lender emo
tion of the heart. The present Su
perintendent of the Branch 'Hospital
is practically, though ho calls him
self only the "furnisher," in charge
of about two bundled unfortunate
Hawaiians whd arc affiictcd with an
incurable disease. He had no sym
pathy for them and no feeling. Ac
cording to his theory if there be
disturbance in tho institution under
his charge, the disturbers must be
shipped to Molokai. "The motive
for the attack was revenge.'" What
was tho cause for the revenge? Wc
ask the President of the Board of
Health to suspend immediately this
Superintendent who is in charge of
the Branch Leper Hospital, to remove
him from tho high and most impor
tant Government position that be
occupies, to order the recall, from
Molokai, of the ten men who attacked
the Superintendent, and to hold a
mo3t searching public inquiry into
the cause for the revenge. Wc
further ask Mr. Gibson, who is the
President of the Board of Health, to
inquire into the treatment of the ten
men who were confined in two close
cells, for fifteen hours, which were
"good enough for them." One of
tho men in the Branch Hospital,
I when asked about the assault on the
Superintendent, said "he didn't like
to say." None of them arc likely
to say when the Superintendent is
etill in charge of them, even as "fur
nisher." lie should bo removed nt
once from his position until a most
thorough and searching inquiry has
been held as to the assault and bis
subsequent conduct, which, to us,
did not bear the semblance of a man
who, holding such a position, ic
quircs the most kind and gentle,
though firm, disposition without the
intimidation caused by the open dis
play of a loaded revolver.
