lli'p. Dole said I hero was a good
deal of force in the remarks of the
lion. Noble, but ho thought it was
better not to economize in the direc
tion of Hie health of the people. If
he should want to eeonomho he
should do so in mailers of Hie army
and navy, and subsidies to steam
ship lines, lie did not sign the re
port to subsidize the Oceanic Steam
ship Co. not because he did not believe
in subsidizing them, but because he
thought they should get along with
subsidizing one less steamship,
which would save enough to enable
them to build hospitals. It might
be a good thing to have hospitals
everywhere, but because they could
not rford to put one up at every
place, he did not seo why they
should not erect one where it was
most needed. Bad roads on Hawaii
were no criterion for Kauai. A hos
pital at Lihue would be some good
for a resident of Hanalci. There
was a good road all the way. If
they could afford one or two hos
pitals tilts year, of course they would
be put them where they would do the
most good. It hardly needed argu
ment for the necessity of hospitals
in some places.
Noble Wilder said if hospitals
were a success he should have no
objection to them, but hospitals
were not a success. Every Hawaiian
member knew that Hawaiians would
not go to hospital. He had a
sailor who broke his leg and he took
him to the hospital, and his friends
came and took him right away. The
hospital at Wailuku was a good
institution, an honor and a credit to
this country; but the natives did
not avail themselves of it to any
extent. He had been there when
there was not a patient in it. He
took all his people there when they
were sick, but they were not will
ing to go. Look at the reports of
deaths of natives in this city one
half are unattended or die of un
knot n diseases. It they could make
natives avail themselves of hospi
tals, and could afford it, the best
tlpug they could do was to build
hospitals. At present, however, it
would be easier to take people to
Honolulu than from one of the other
islands to another. If it cost now
10,000 for two hospitals, how
much would it cost for about ten
more? It would be a matter of inter
est to know how many natives have
been treated in Wailuku hospital,
but they had not anything on that
point. He knew from his own expe
rience, however, that natives would
not go to hospital. He simply
begged to repeat that the expenses
of the Board of Health were con
stantly growing and would before
long swallow one-half of the revenue
of this country.
Minister Gibson, whilst fully
agreeing with some statements of
the lion. Noble, entirely disagreed
with others. The lion. Noble's
arguments against hospitals would
apply to some extent to schools.
Schools in this country were in some
degree a success, but not so large a
success as the Government would
like. They had to have truant offi
cers to look after the children,
otherwise the schools would be
much poorer than they were. If
the schools were a complete success,
as much as their hearts could desire,
they would not have need of a truant
officer and their schools would be
filled with eager learners all the
tune. But the schools were more of
a success than the hospitals, for the
hospitals were not a success. It
was true the Hawaiian had a fear of
hospitals: he was afraid tho doe
tors would cut up his body after he
was dead ; but great pains had been
taken at Wailuku to dispel that fear
and with good success. Notwith
standing the small success of hospi
tals in proportion to their wish and
expectation, it was important that
means might be provided available
ior Hawaiians to have themselves
taken care of when suffering
in body or health. The hon. Noble
had stated truly that the Wailuku
hospital had no one in it, but that was
only for a day or two. When the
speaker visited it there were 11 there,
nnd the number ranged from 12
to 15. Clerics, laborers on plan
tat'ons etc., wero gradually
coming to avail themselves of it.
Appiceiation of those institutions
would increase by degrees until
there would bo less people die un
attended how sad that was and of
unknown diseases. It was truo they
had voted heavy sums for physi
cians ho thought a very largo pro
portion of their means, larger than
the President of tho Board of Health
recommended. The hon. Noble's
argument about tho cost of two
hospitals was hardly correct, for in
one of them was over a hundred
lepers. They were not now discuss
ing hospitals like that one. He
thought the Hawaiian Kingdom was
offering greater advantages for tho
sanitary care of its people than any
other country in tho world. Still
tho expenso might become too largo
for the revenue.
Noble Bishop agreed fully with
what Noble Wilder said, with re
gard to the maintenance of hospitals.
Thero wore three foreigners to one
Jlawaiian iu the Mtilultuii hospital at
Tiwrrprwrrrammmy vii riii m wwny Wrfunmww
Wailuku : these wh'lo foreigners
paid and natives went free. That
was tho way with tlio Queen's Hos
pital, with wh'ch ho had dcen con
nected for many years. Natives
were not only received free, but the
trustees had advertised that thoy
.would pay tho passages of poor peo
ple from the other islands. They
studied to nnd out what the objec
tions were, what they could do to
bring people into that hospital.
Years ago tlio objection mentioned
by His Excellency was made that
there were post mortcms there.
Although it was for tlio benefit of
tho community and tho doctors that
theso examinations should be made,
yot years ago thoy were stopped.
People when sick wanted to stay at
home iu their own houses, nnd this
house had just voted what he con
sidered extravagant and unreason
able sums for the pay of doctors to
attend to people in their own homes.
Considering all theso things he felt
compelled to vote . against these
At 12:15, on motion of Rep. Kau
namano, the house took recess till
The committee resumed at 1 :-15.
Hop. Kaunamano said tho house
had heard a great deal from Mr. Dole
during the session on economy.
Would it be economy to appropriate
this amount for a hospital at Lihue?
He thought not. It would only
be opening the door for other
members to ask for hospitals in
Rep. Wight said he endorsed the
remarks made by Mr. Wilder.
Willi the facilities enjoyed and so
mauj steamers, there was no need
of fresh hospitals. He (the speaker)
had a great deal of experience
among Hawaiians, and knew that
their real wish when sick was to be
at home and to be doctored there.
After so much talk about economy,
it would be an act of supererogation
to go and build hospitals.
Rep. Dole said that if the house
did not think it iecessary to build
the hospital, he would be satis
fied. Rep. Aholo said that sonic good
arguments had been made on this
question. There is a good deal of
truth in the fact that the natives are
prejudiced against hospitals. It is
difficult to get a native to take medi
cine regularly, but if in a hospital
the nurse looks after that. The
President of the Board of Health
has stated.that he is in favor of this
hospital. Let the appropriation be
made, and if there is no money
why it cannot be built. He favored
Rep. Keau said he was not in
favor of the item.
On the question being put, the
item was lost.
Repairs and care of Quaran
tine 5 000
Rep. Hayselden moved it pass at
The item passed at 84,000.
Kapiolani Home .. $8 000
Rep. Dole asked if this item was
based on actual calculation, and
how many children were there in the
Minister Gibson said he desired
to offer a few words of explanation
witli regard to this item. He would
first touch upon the establishment
of the institution. It had long been
deemed important to provide a home
for a class of children, especially
girls, who were suspected of being
tainted with the disease of leprosy,
who as yet showed no indication of
the disease ; and the hope was that,
by care and attention and improved
condition in their lives, the develop
ment of the malady might be pre
vented nnd they become useful
members of society. The last Leg
islature voted a liberal sum for this
object ; but as the funds were not
immediately available at the time re
quired, an appeal was made to pub
lic benevolence, when a sum of over
8G,000 was subscribed, and 85,200
was paid in. This fund was placed
at the disposal of the
Board of Health, and by author
ization of tho Board, he (the
speaker) expended the amount on
the building of the Home, tho ac
counts of which expenditure were
placed in the hands of the worth'
Chairman (Hon. Mr. Cleghorn) and
the honored President (Hon. Mr.
Walker), and approved by them.
An additional amount was drawn
from the appropriation to complete
the building, which is a two-story,
well finished structure, well furnish
ed and equal in all its appointments
to a lirst-class boardiug school. It
is capable of accommodating 50 girls.
At present it has 35 neat iron bed
steads in its dormitory, and is taste
fully furnished in its reflectory and
various offices. At first an experiment
was mado with 10 girls tho offspring
of leprous parents. Theso have been
admirably cared for by the faithful
Sisters of Charity in charge. Tho
Home was placed within the en
closure of the Leper Hospital, not
because it was the most desirablo
place, but as tho community of pious
ladies who wero willing to undertake
this work, ami who are already
established in their Convent in tlic
Branch Hospital yard, were too few
in number to bo divided and placed
at different points apart, and as thoy
only wero ready to undertake this
.work it was deemed important to
place tho Homo within tho Hospital
enclosure. But it is separated from
tho leper yard by a distinct lino of
fence. At tho same time it must be
mentioned, in order to understand a
btatement of expenditure on account
of tho Home, which appears in the
report of the Prosidcnt of tho Board
of Health, Unit this ncoount of ex
penditure is misleading, and ho re
gretted that a full explanation of its
figures was not mado in the report.
It is well understood by the commit
tco of Financo, and is no doubt
known to honorable members t'i..t
the nppropiiiil'ons for maintenance
of hospitals was not only fully drawn
out, but ran short duiiugthe months
of Fcbiuaiy and March. Now, as he
did not deem it advisable to provide
for this deficiency by any extraordin
ary mcasurcu, aftcrconsultation with
his colleagues he drew on the appro
priation for tho Kapiolani Home to
make up for tho deficiency for tlio
supply for the Branch Hospital,
recognizing that it was in some
sense a part of tho same establish
ment, and he could draw for its sup
port under the general authorization
for the supply of leper settlements.
Hence, the Home in the report is
charged with a supply of milk which
was furnished to the whole of the
Branch Hospital. Its own supply
is two quarts a day, but it is charged
witli the four quarts daily supplied
to the hospital, and the same may
bo said in regard to other items
which appear as charged against the
Homo, but used by the hospital.
The item of S'JOO for service which
appears charged, is the cost of the
whole sen ice for hospital and Home
during the period indicated. The
actual cost of the charge and man
agement of the Home is 810 a
month for two Sisters of Charity,
who render a faithful, zealous and
patient service for the good of their
young charges suspected of the
dangerous disease. There are now
a number of girls suited to this in
stitution and ready to be placed in
the Home, but the Board of Health
awaits the vote of the Assembly
before placing them there, and the
present estimate is calculated on a
provision to be made for about
thirty or more girls.
The item then passed without
The item, Kalakaua Home, $10,

Noble Wilder moved to insert an
item of 81,500, salary of Dr. Mc
Kibbin up to June, 188G, under the
Act to mitigate. He regretted to
have to bring the matter up, but
there seemed to be some difference
of opinion between the Board of
Health and the doctor. The latter
had done the work, and the matter
was presented to the Assembly at
Minister Gibson said his attention
was called to the fact that the Board
of Health had nothing to do with
this matter. He consulted with the
Attorney-General, who advised him
to discontinue the payment. The
matter was transferred to the Inte
rior Department, but the late Min
ister did not think the law was suffi
cient to authorize him to pay any
thing. He could not speak posi
tively as to the non-action of the
late Minister. He (the speaker)
thought Dr. McKibbin had been
acting in good faith, and was en
titled to some consideration.
Rep. Hayselden supported the
motion, but thought the item should
be placed under the head of Inte
Noble Wilder said the doctor had
performed the service, and he (the
speaker) was obliged to the Minis
ter of the Interior for the very fair
and business way he had received
the matter, and he hoped the house
would vote it.

Noble Wilder moved to insert an
item of 81,000 for landing at Oakala,
