HOPE FOR THE SUFFERER.
Our Government hears upon its
shoulders a responsibility, which, if
not altogether peculiar to this coun
try, is not common to most other
countries. What constitutes this
special responsibility is the presence
of a contagious disease, generally
believed to be incurable. The clilli
culty of dealing with this evil is eoni
nicnuratc with the responsibility it
imposes. This latter fact is too fre
quently ignored by critics. The law
of the land demands segregation,
and, so long as the dogma of posi
tive and absolute incurability passes
as nn axiom, this will probably be
accepted as the only method of
stopping the spread and extinguish
ing the existence of this pitiless
enemy. As a corollary of the dogma
just now referred to, there is a dis
position on the part of the intelli
gent public to regard the rigid
enforcement of the law to segregate
as the first and last duty of the
Board of Health. Although fully
and unreservedly endorsing a policy
of strict and uncompromising segre
gation, we venture the opinion that
the incurability theory has been too
hastily adopted. It should be said,
however, in justice to the present
administration, Hint the possibility
of cure has been practically admitted
by securing the services of a compe
tent scientist, to investigate and ex
periment, with the view of discover
ing a remedy.
In an article on this subject, the
Kuijm:tis of Feb. 8lh, 1883, ex
pressed the following opinion:
"We have nhrnys considered it one
of the first duties of the Hawaiian
Government to do everything possi
ble for the absolute obliteration of
this loathsome disease, not merely
by isolating the afllictcd ones and
thereby causing it in time to run
itself out for want of fresh material
on which to subsist, but by using
every means to discover a positive
' cure for the malady. We do not
subscribe to the popular notion, that
because nobody has hitherto dis-
,-, covered a remedy nobody ever will
discover one, or that because all
past attempts to cure have been in
effectual all future attempts must
necessarily share a like fate. As
'the world grows older, knowledge
increases and new discoveries are
being made daily. Many things
that were considered impossibilities
a few years ago arc now accepted
facts. We do not assert that leprosy
is curable, but we do say that its
1 absolute incurability is not mathe
matically proven; and until such
incontrovertible evidence is forlh-
- coming it is the duty of the Govcin-
k-'incnt, as conservator of tho public
good, to seek industriously and
fcperscvcringly for an antidote to tho
great evil. We do not sec how this
iduty can be better performed than
by engaging a gentleman of a scien
tific cast of mind nud scientific
attainments, and withal an enthusiast
injhis profession, to devote his entire
tinio and attention to this one matter.
If i remedy there be, wc look for its
(liscovcry, not to blind empiricism,
but to Hclonliflr icsciueh. Kxpci'i
menu aiming nl cuie, bused on
inicioncopiuul and ehcinicul investi
gation, mo niuie likely to succeed
limn any conducted without an exact
knowledge of the iinture of the
Since the foregoing expression of
opinion was first published, tho
'gentleman of scientific attain
ments," therein referred to, Dr.
Arning, has arrived nnd has been
patiently pursuing his investigations
at Kaknako. In his leport to Hie
1'iesident of (he Hoard of Health,
which is incorporated in the Presi
dent's leport to the Legislature, he
gives a virtual endorsement of the
lhi.i.KTix's opinion, in the following
hnguagc: " "Wo ought never, for a
moment, to accept the saying of the
incurability of leprosy as true ; but
ought to go on fighting against it.
Perhaps wc have been on the wrong
track of treatment, and there is yet
a solution of the problem to be
found. The recent experiences con
cerning the germ naturo of disease
may be the means of showing us the
path of rational treatment; and they
must and do give a new impulse and
new encouragement to us to persevere
in trying and experimenting."
Thus Dr. Arning enters a most
positive protest against the accept
ance, as true, of the idea of hopeless
incurability, and urges to persistent
efforts in quest of remedies. En
couragement from such a source
should certainly inspire hope and
stiengthen endeavor. Wc arc un
willing to believe that any disease is
without its antidote, although the
antidote may not be known.
Wc hope our .suggestion to have a
Celebration Committee appointed
without delay, to prepare for the
King's liirlhday, will not be neg
lected. To have proper arrange
ments made in advance would en
hance the enjoyment of the day to
The insistancc by Hie Aducrther
that the location of a lire should be
immediately indicated on Hie Tower
bell is timely. The authorities
should not have to be told such a
thing, and with a complete telephone
system there is no excuse for such a
delay as occurred yesterday in get
ting on water.
The jolly editor of the Advertiser
fortifies himself for a trip to the
Coast by the Mariposa, in a leading
article giving advice to seafarers,

convenient vacuum in his resolution
reservoir, which will beat all his
philosophy to overcome till he meets
the aroma of California soil.
A correspondent writes to enquire
if the trustees of a certain church
expect the pcw-holdcrs to do the
dusting. Wc should answer him by
enquiring if he does not think it
would be better to prefer the com
plaint directly to the trustees than
through a newspaper. It seems to
us inexpedient to single out one
church for a neglect chargeable to
the keepers of other churches as
Our brave firemen will pardon us
for the opinion that they would do
more effective work by playing
lower than they do in fighting fire.
When water is thrown on the top of
a fire, most of its cdlcacy Hies up
ward in steam, but when it is thrown
into the lowest area of combustion
the rising steam does as much in
putting out tlte flames above as the
water docs beneath. The most
experienced firemen in cities abroad
invariably fight a fire from tho bot
Some of our retail merchants claim
to have a grievance in wholesale men
selling small.pnrccls of goods to con
sumers at lower prices, even, than
the retailers can afford to sell tho
same merchandize for. Such a prac
tice is certainly not legitimate trade,
and, unless the Chamber of Com
merce can find means to put an end
to it, sonic day there may be combi
nations of retailers to do their own
importing, which would entail serious
consequences to the wholesale guild.
As regards the circulation of tho
foreign silver coin called in, referred
to by a correspondent, we believe it
would all disappear in good lime if
Hie merchants would only cease
paying it nut to llu-ii i ustomeis for
change. If Ihuy persist in keeping
it nlloat, customers will either have
to decline taking Hie condemned
currency or lake the trouble of
carrying all the odd dollars, halves
and quarters they get of it to the
Treasury for exchange. The mer
chants will, however, probably solve
the question by doing what appears
to be the reasonable and right thing
on (heir pari.
It is suspected that a gooil deal of
illicit liquor distilling is prevalent in
the out districts. The 'only remedy
wc can support is the unconditional
suppression of the offence. It has
not its origin in the necessities of the
people, but in the cupidity of the
lawless operators. Contrary to the
apparent view of our correspondent,
which wc know many share with
him, wc should prefer grog-selling
in spite of law than by the sanction
of law. If the law of 1882 is good
so far as it goes, then its mere
passage was so much gained for the
right, its even partial enforcement
is so much belter and ils thorough
enforcement is what is due from tho

EniTOit I)ui.m:tin: His Majesty's
birthday will Soon be at hand, and I
suppose the usual regatta will take
place on that day as in previous
years. Therefore it may not be too
late to make a suggestion that the
starling-point of the races should bo
changed to some spot where all the
spectators could have a good view
of the races from start to finish. Of
course our harbor having such an
irregular shore-line, this will be
somewhat difllcull, but I opine that
those well acquainted with the harbor
could suggest such a spot. I am
sure that the spectators on the occa
sion will be thankful if the suggestion
is carried out, for one of the most
aggravating things to a spectator of
a race is to be blocked out of the
view at any exciting point in the race,
and this has been frequently felt in
past years. Hoping to sec the
matter taken up, I am, sir,
A Woui.u-iu: Srr.CT.VTOi:.
EniTou Bui.i.i.tin : When the 'li
quor law of 1882 was passed one of
the chief arguments used in its favor
was that it would prevent the illicit
distillation of liquor, previously
carried on to an enormous extent in
the country districts. For a time
my experience made me believe that
this was the case, but during the
last few months 1 am led to believe
that more liquor has been secretly
manufactured in the country dis
tricts than during any eoi responding
period under tho old law. If this
is actually tho case, then the law of
1882 does not effect all that was
claimed for it, or else its execution
is not as fully and thoroughly at
tended to as it ought to be. It is of
no use having laws or sections of
laws on our statute book's that arc
not properly enforced. It only en
courages a growth of criminal senti
ment among the population, for
they know that by breaking the law
they arc criminals, and they also
know that the law will not be en
forced by the proper ofllcials. Per
haps if licensed houses were estab
lished in the country districts, as
may be done, I believe, by the King
in Privy Council, this nnd the evil
of sly grog-selling might be res
trained if not altogether suppressed.
THE CURRENCY. '
Editou Hui.t.utin : When tho
Kalakaua dollars were first brought
down a great howl was raised that
the country was ruined and that wc
had too much silver. In consequence
tho Legislature passed an enactment
to enable all othor silver coins, but
American and Hawaiian,' to be re
moved from circulation nnd replaced
with gold. I sco from a contempo
rary of yours that, although half of
the specified time for the redemption
of theso coins lias passed, ninny of
them arc still in circulation. Either,
then, the original cry Hint wc had
i tn ha,
loo much silver wan not true, or else
people have not been Riillli'iontly ap
prised of Ihelr duly in the mailer.
A won! of warning from nil the
newspapers- Hawaiian and English
might have the effect of causing
all these coins to be sent in.
