The other day wo exposed certain'
glaring misstatements of the Adver
tiser relative to our sanitary statis
tics. The article from which those
misstatements were taken contains
several other assertion" on the same
subject which are perhaps also worth
exposing. First, it denied that the
statistics of the Boaul of Health are
"imperfect" that i, that they arc
imperfect in tho sense in which our
contemporary understood us: that,
to quote the Advertiser' r. own lan
guage, "the impcrfectness spoken
of was the result of negligence or
indifference." Now, although wo
only alluded to the imperfection in
cidentally as to a generally accepted
fact, since tho Advertiser has chal
lenged tho truth of tho remark we
arc prepared to prove it in its full
acceptation. The returns published
by the Board tire imperfect grossly
and notoriously so. Tho evidence
in proof of this charge has been
published more than once. No at
tempt to meet that evidence has ever
been made, and it stands to-day
unanswered and unanswerable.
Then, as to whether the " impcrfect
ness" was due to " negligence or
indifference." The Jlincniidn
Monthly having been referred to in
this discussion, wo shall quotc'thc ex
perience of tho.editor of that poiiodi
cal as given by him in the June
For about fourteen months, viz. :
from June 5th, 1882, to July :Jlst,
1883, tho editor of the Monthly
held the position of assistant physi
cian to tho Government dispensary,
Dr. Fitch being the physician in
charge of that institution. Our
readers arc all aware of the extraor
dinary and unprecedented popularity
of Dr. Fitch among the natives at
that time, and of tho almost incre
dible numbers, considering the size
of tho population, who applied to
him for treatment, not only at tho
dispensary but also at their homes'.
It is certain that tho great bulk of
tho sickness occurring among the
native population in and around
Honolulu during the period named
came under the personal observation
of either Dr. Fitch or the writer.
Jinny of these people were, suffering
from chronic ailments ; many were
hopeless cases of incurable disease,
never seen until in the last stages.
As a necessary consequence the
number of deaths occurring in the
dispensary practice was large. Under
these circumstances our readers will
be perhaps surprised to learn that
never in so much as ono solitary in
stance in the writer's dispensary
practice, nor in that of Dr. Fitch,
as stated by that gentleman, was
any certificate required or any in
quiry made as to the cause of death
in any one of all those cases." If
tho nbovois not sufllcicnt evidence
of " negligence or indifference " we
arc prepared to offer further testi
mony on the samo point.
The Advertiser asserts that the
districts from which the two Boards
receive their returns arc not identical.
Wo challenge that journal to give
tho boundaries of these two districts,
respectively, and show wherein tlioy
differ. The Board of Education
' ''statistics cmbraco the entire District
oflvona on this island, extending
.from Mauunltm on ono side to Moa-
'4'naluu on the other. If tho Board of
Health district is the same, then tho
Advertiser lias prevaricated. If It
only embraces a portion of the
other, then the deaths being taken
from a portion of the district and
the population estimated for tho
whole, a correction of the error, so
as to make the two constituencies
identical, would only make the death
rate appear still larger. Wo have
no space for more to-day, but tho
subject is by no means exhausted.
The local Chinese newspaper
comes out to-day entitled, " The
Hawaiian Chinescs News." The
man who writes English " but in
differently well " must bo engaged
on the staff of our interesting con
temporary. The Bri.i.mix was the first papor
to gel its Independence Day history
straight, although its editor was
referred to tho other day, by one of
its blundering contemporaries as
having been "only a dogwatch" in
The gentleman who puts his
InitiaN lo the leader in this morn
ing's Advertiser, ets forth in that
article that the Democratic Govern
ment will be more favorable to Reci
procity than the Republican. Bumps
and Jinks must regard him, then,
as a very naughty man to have
figured in the committee to get up a
huge demonstration over the Re
publican victory that the Alameda's
news did not contain.
There is too much reason to fear
that a very large proportion of
Honolulu people arc like our chan
ticleer they crow for the winning
side every time. No doubt, should
to-day's mail bring news that Blaine
is elected after all, all the turpentine
and methylated spirits in town will
be bought up in an hour, to get the
brown paint out of the hats that
changed from Blaine to Cleveland
The Chamber of Commerce has
taken what must be commend
ed as wise action, in resolving
that its members shall regard
silver certificates at par from
December 1st, the date for the gold
standard to go into effect. This
will prevent an injurious'run for the
gold forming the security for our
convenient paper currency.
" Thn Jlttlletin appears to be a
little out in its knowledge of Ameri
can history, judging from its at
tempt to correct the Uuzettc as to
what happened during the canvass
for tho Presidency when Lincoln
was elected." If the Advertiser,
which gets off the above, had given
an instance of Mr. Lincoln's stump
ing the country after his nomination
in 1800, we should have tumbled
without waiting for the Gazette to
If strong feelings upon politics,
when they think of them at all,
should entitle women to the suffrage
they ought to have the privilege
rigid away. Mrs. J. F.llen Foster,
of Iowa, recently resigned from the
national Woman's Christian Tem
perance Union because she was
unable to endorse its action in pass
ing a resolution favoring the Pro
hibition party. We have heard, too,
of ladies in Now York who issued
invitations to dinner on the day
after the declaration of tho Presi
dential vote, turkey to bo served if
theii favorite was elected and cod
fish if he was not.
It is remarked that while much
news is given about the Duchy of
Brunswick by the English papers,
i thoy accept with serenity tho con
i elusion that the Duke of Cumberland
will be robbed of his inheritance by
Prussia. Even the demand of tho
German papers Hint the Reichstag
pass a law barring foreign princes
from German inheritances, which
is aimed at tho'Duko of Edinburgh's
heirship to tho Duke of Gotha, has
not raised a ripple of comment in
England. Perhaps the English
people are laying for a pretext to
got rid of the numerous German
retinue of Queen Victoria's court
which is billeted upon British tax
payers. Wo arc credibly informed that a
cat domesticated with a family liv
ing opposite the immigration sheds,
Knknnlco, is far gone with leprosy,
la face being partly eaten nway.
Members of tho family keeping this
hideous pot minglo freely with other
people, the head of it working on
the Marino Railway, and an innumc
rablo company of dogs nnd cats arc
upon intimate terms with the nlllicled
puss. It is said, also, but this wo
are nut sure of, that a member of
the family is an inmate of the lazar
etto on Molokai. There would there
fore seem to be abundant.occasion
for prompt nnd thorough inspection
of the residents of that immediate
quarter. The Government physi
cian of Kakaako, wo are informed, is
aware of the case of the cat, nnd if
he docs not have it put out of tho
way immediately he incurs a grave
