HOPE FOR THE LEPER.
The IJtiLi.KTiN lias contended in
the past that people have been too
ready to believe that leprosy is an
incurable disease, and still holds to
the same opinion. Itcpcatcd failures
in any direction are not conclusive
evidence of the impossibility of
bucccss. Many things that were
considered utter impossibilities have
become established facts. Some
diseases thnt our forefathers regard
ed as incurable yield to advanced and
more enlightened medical treatment
in our generation ; and who can as
sert that leprosy will not be ulti
mately added to the catalogue of
ailments conquerable by the phy
sician's skill? Feeling a strong
desire in common with all lovers of
humanity that such may be so, and
entertaining a hope contrary to
man' that the desire is not doomed
to eternal disappointment, it affords
us a degree of satisfaction to know
that the Hoard of Health has been
for years past, and fctill is, putting
forth special efforts with a view to
this end. Of course, some people
think these efforts the acme of folly,
and speak of them as so much time
wasted and money thrown away.
Wc claim the right to think differ
ently, and in our position of hope
fulness arc sanguine of beneficial
results accruing from Dr. Arning's
investigations, and arc not entirety
devoid of faith in Dr. Goto's pro
fessions. Whether tho last named
gentleman is able to accomplish all
he promises remains to be seen, but
he certainly has already furnished
proof that he can do something.
Some cases under treatment show
marked improvement to the eye, and
the patients testify that a corres
ponding change has occurred in
their feelings. One person in parti
cular, an intelligent foreigner, who
lias always been so sceptical of cure
that until recently he has persistently
refused to try any remedies, writes
to say thnt a month's treatment has
produced a decided improvement, to
the extent of removing pain and
restoring sensation to parts previously
without feeling. This goes to show
that the disease is amenable to treat
ment, and if nothing more is effected
the result referred to is compensation
for the expense involved.
The Treaty in Peril.
Moreno m tlm War-saffe.
Carter making a Good Fight.
By the arrival of the W. S. llowne,
this morning, wc have one day's
later nows from the Coast. Follow
ing is the S. 1 Chronicle's Wash
ington despatch of February 28th,
concerning the Treaty:
TIII2 1IA1VAIIAX Til HAT Y.
AlHiUMKNlS roit AND AUAINST ITS
Washington, Feb. 27. Congress
man Mills of Texas was the only one
of the sub-committee that has charge
of the resolution to abrogate tho Ha
waiian Heciprocity Treaty who heard
the statements to-day for and against
reciprocity. Iliscock of New York
and Mnyliury of Michigan, who are
on the sub-committee, wero in their
respective States, but MiJIs was de
termined to push the matter lo u
speedy conclusion, and proceeded
with tho hearing. All tho arguments
lire to be printed, so that nothing
would be gained or lost bjr tho ab
sence of tho two members. Those
who attended tho hearing were II.
A. P. Cnrter, the Hawaiian Miuistcr
Latest Foreign Mews
,i-.., .., n n
ex-Senator Uoutwcll, tho attorney
for Knlnhnun's Government j Con
gressmen Morrow, Felton and Mc
Kcnna, J. E. Searlc3, Jr. and Colso
Cit'sar Moreno, who was onco Min
ister of Forcigh Affairs for the Ha
Moreno, who speaks Ei ;;llsh in
differently, made a long statement
about the political condition of tho
islands, lie said Hint tin country
was fast passing into the control of
the Germans who had emigrated
there, lie informed the Commis
sion that the King had told him that
Glaus Sprcckels was paving the way
for Germany to seize the islands.
He also said that Sprcckels was vir
tually ruler of the kingdom. He
pointed out that under the treaty
the native Ilawaiiaus had lost the
occupancy of the land to a largo
extent, and that it has passed to the
foreigners who were attracted there
by the large prollts that could be
amassed by the cultivation f sugar.
After Moreno finished Mi Is asked
the Hawaiian Minister and ex
Senator Boutwell if they Had any
statement to make. Houtwell and
Carter asked for a postponement to
enable them to collect figures to set
against those submitted by Searle.
Mills refused to grant a postpone
ment, and as neither Culler nor
Votitwcll had anything to say at that
time Mills began to cross-examine
them. Ho asked Carter what bcncllt
the ltceiprocily Treaty had been to
this country. He said that he did
not care what advantage it had been
to the islands, as Congress was legis
lating solely for the benefit of this
country. Carter replied that it aided
American shipping greatly; that
one-fourth of all the ships that
entered San Francisco harbor were
from the Sandwich Islands. Carter
denied that the native Hawaiian had
disposed of the laud.
Mills asked if there had not been
a large immigration of Chinese into
the islands. Carter replied that the
Emperor of China has issued an
edict prohibiting the immigration of
his subjects to the islands and that
the laws of the Hawaiian Kingdom
prevented the landing of more than
twenty-live Chinamen from any one
ship, but he admitted that in the
past the coolies had gone to the
islands in great numbers.
"What influence has Clans Sprcck
els in the Hawaiian Government?"
"None whatever," replied Carter.
"Was he not knighted by the
King?" inquired Mills.
"No, he was only presented with
the Order of Knlakaua. He has
not been knighted," replied Carter.
Mills then inquired about Ameri
can influence in tho islands, and was
informed by the Hawaiicn Minister
that it was very strong and increas
ing. Mills asked for statistics on
many points, but neither lloutwcll
nor Carter could furnish them, and
the further hearing was deferred till
