"GOOD ENOUGH FOR THEM."
The hole and corner farce recently
played at the Kakaako Branch Hos
pital is both instructive and amus
ing, because it shows us the role
played by Mr. Gibson in connection
with a dirty transaction that occurred
in a department under his immediate
control. The leading character in
the farce was Mr. Van Gcisen, while
Mr. Gibson takes the part of the
clown, trying to throw sawdust into
the eyes of the public by an unwil
ling use of Ins official heels. The
only person admitted during the
performance of the farce was an
attache of the Advertiser, and that
paper duly published a garbled ac
count of the supposed proceedings.
The public will readily understand
that it has been dished up a la mode
Gibsoniennc. There is, however,
sufficient information supplied in the
Gibsonian hash to provide us with a
fair amount of literary pabulum.
The witnesses examined were not
on oath, consequently the high
steward escapes a charge of perjury,
though proving himself n direct de
scendant from Ananias. Our first
account of the disturbance, stated
by the chief actor to be " quite coin
rect," gave his own story. He w:is
"asleep in his house with his wife."
. The official hash buid, "hi.s wife had
gone to Maui." 'IIe found the
floor and an old shawl saturated with
oil."jj,.Tiie leading comedian dis
tinctly stated, in reply to questions
put 1)3' the representative of the Ga
zette, that there wore "no signs of
any disturbance besidc the broken
door, and that no oil had been
upset." "Tin ec of the men who
attacked me were to be sent to Mo
lokai, but now I intend to i-end all
ten." "The names of all those who
had taken part in the row" were
" upon the list of patients that had
been prepared 13' the physician of
the hospital to be sent to Kalawao."
AVe find that two of these ten lepers
whose names were said to he on the
list, though thero is no evidence to
show that aiy or all of the names
were not added Mibscqucnt to (he
disturbance, iccri' not sent. The
physician ordered them to go and
presumably Mr. Gibson detained
them because it was " against their
The woman llunka is said to have
stated, in her evidence, that, "tho
shawl did not belong to any one in
the house, it was brought and left
there that night by some one."
Who is "some one?" "The motive
for tho attack was revenge." The
hash evidence showb that sus
picions of adultery on the part of
the "furnisher," had n fair share in
the "motive for tho attack." Wa&
jealousy the cause for "revenge?"
When Van GcibPii's wife "wasaway,"
the woma Lipo "slept with the rest
of the family." Indeed!
Only two of the ten men that
made the attack have been examined.
Molokai is evidently a receptacle for
troublesome and disordoily suspects.
There was no evidence adduced to
show if the high steward lias been
"furnished" with a policeman's
commission ; no inquiry as to the
teu men being confined in two small
cells for over twelve hours ; no in
f oi million why Mr. Dayton did not
send assistance when informed of
the disturbance j no information as
to the somnolence of the eight po
licemen on duty ; no cause shown
for the doors of the patients' rooms
being unlocked ; no reason adduced
for the six-shooter show; nothing
about the gentlemanly method of
reading a mother's letter ; nothing
stated about the regulations for the
admission of strangers, why one was
admitted without question and two
were detained awaiting the " open
sesame" of the "furnisher." But
there is one thing. That is the tacit
suppoit given 1)3 the Board of
Ilcallh to their "furnisher." By
their silence 11103" concede that his
mode of ticatincntis "good enough"
for the lepers ; they sustain the
locking up in cells, five in each, of
fractious patients and the detention
at Kakaako of men who had been
placed "upon the list of patients to
be sent to Molokai." This is the
action of those entrusted, by His
Majesty, with the care of the health
of all Hawaiians, and more especially
with that of the unfortunate lepers
The following extract from the
petition to Her Majesty speaks for
itself. The accusations, therein
made, have not been refuted :
"Patients that arc almost well arc
also being picked out through per
sonal enmity, whilst those that arc
quite bad arc to bo detained on ac
count of being favorites under these
parties those arc the ones to re
main. You will no doubt be aston
ished on account of such work being
carried on secretly. The foreigner
(Van Gcisen) is a dreadfully bad
"Hcie is another thing. It is a
vciy shameful thing, the picking out
of those who are almost well, for
Kalawao, whilst those who arc very
bad arc detained here to undergo
"If this place is a refuge for the
hope of the people to undergo medi
cal treatment, then it is proper for the
Boaid of Health to come down and
pick out those who arc to remain
and be treated. But, if this work
of sccrcc3' is canicd on, then the
patients will unanimously refuse to
go to Kalawao, and blood will be
The inquiry farce is over. Eight
of the men, implicated in the dis
turbance, remain unheard at Molo
kai. The patients at the Branch
Hospital remain subject to their
previous treatment at the hand of a
man who must be "good enough for
them" for is he not upheld by the
The Attorney-General was present
at the inquiry, the Piesident of the
Board of Health doubtless thinking
that gentleman's presence and popu
larity would turn awa3r all suspicious
of maltreatment, abuse of power and
neglect of duty on the part of the
"furnisher." But the ruse has not
been successful. An exposure has
been made of the treatment of the
leper patients atj, Kakaako which has
disgusted the public.
We have been told that forty-three
lepers died at Molokai during the
mouths of Jsinuary anil February,
and chiefly from diseases other than
leprosy, and that there is great need
for proper medical treatment at Mo
lokai. Perhaps tho President of the
Board of Health conlil take part in
another leprous farce and inquire
into the treatment of all the "dear
people" on Molokai. The position
of "furnisher" at Kakaako is not a
pleasant 0110 for any man to occupy ;
but that is no reason why an inhu
man bravado should bo retained.
Surely it would be possible to obtain
abroad, if not in this Kingdom, a
competent and quatifled human.
We cannot conclude withoutthank
ing the editor of the Saturday Press
for nothaving utilized the valuabloma
toiial furnished by the inquiry which
was at his disposal ; possibly ho felt
his incompetence to deal aptly with
the subject, or was he "fixed?"
