WEDNESDAY, SKIT. 8. 188(1.
There is nothing which tends
more to upset the equanimity of
nervous and weak-minded persons,
than u repot I of tin appioaeliing
vessel with some dread disease, of :i
contagious natuie, on boaul; in fact
it creates what K commonly called
"n scare". From past experience,
the people of Honolulu feel that
they cannot be too caioful about tho
admission of vessels from an infect
ed port. Hence the piecautions
taken by the Hoard of Health on the
approach of the Kussian steamship
Moskwa, when it was knoun that
vessel was direct from Yokohama,
a port where cholera is, or has
been, prevalent for some .months
past. The diiections of the Presi
dent of the Board of Health were
carrried out strictly to the letter,
and that without a word of com
plaint from those who had to submit
to the inconvenience of being quar
antined. The essel was boat tied
by the Health olllcers and after a
thorough inspection, was found to
be free from any contagious or in
An olllcial report was made to the
authorities, and the vessel entered
port. So far so good. All's well
that ends well, and so forth. Hut the
vessel having been in port four
days, is it not indiscreet, to say the
least, for people about town to
prophecy what viirht have hap
pened if cholera had been intro
duced? The harm done by this
foolish gossip, is more than the
gossipers have any idea of. Per
sons who are inclined to exagger
ate on such topics, are to lie avoided,
and we now biing the matter to
public notice, in oidcr to assist in
checking the habit of creating "A
Scare." The stay of the Moskwa
in port, has been unattended by any
unpleasant occurrences, but on the
contrary, some pleasant social
gatherings have lesultcd therefrom,
and it is to be regretted that her
stay could not be prolonged, and
the Imperial Princes and olllcers
enabled to visit tho Volcano and
other places of interest on the
Islands. The esscl, however,
leaves to-day for .San Francisco, and
we feel that in expressing our wish
for a safe and pleasant passage, we
are only uttciing the wMi of the
A FAMILIAR SICHT.
A eight which has become fami
liar to most residents of Honolulu
and its suburbs, in that of an un
foitunate legless man taken around
in a wheelbarrow, or something re
sembling a whecllmiiow, asking
alms. The man is a Portuguese,
and is professedly seeking to raise
means to return to his native coun
try. The begging piocess has now
been going on for a good many
months, and the fact that it still
continues seem indicate either that
the people of Honolulu arc not very
charitable or that the expense of
returning to Portugal or the Portu
guese islands in the Atlantic is very
great. As the reputation of our
people for works of mercy and
charity is too well established to
admit the belief that the unfortunate-
inan'.s appeals have been dis
regarded or oven scantily lcsponded
to, tho alternative conclusion is
reached, that tho expense of i dinn
ing this man to his native land
amounts to quite a laige sum. Krom
the statement of a lady thoioughly
acquainted with tho case, the tiutli
appears to bo that the lequisite
amount for the purpose indicated
was raised long ago, but the reci
pient is not satisfied, and is likely
to continue the collecting process
indefinitely. However, wo would
be the last to rellect uncharitably
on any poor unfoituuato fellow
being, and would respectfully sug
gest that one .or other of tho benevo
lent associations of the city who
Jiavc taken upon themselves to
attend to tho needs of tho destitute, !
lake tho above case tinder considera
tion. If it bo found that tho unfor
tunnte man is in need of means to
return to his native homo, or for the
support of himself or family, let
some authorized person or persons
go mound with subscription lists,
and in this way procure what is
necessary. The public will cheer
fully respond. Hut keep tho man
himself fioni begging on the streets.
The community do not appreciate
the spectacle. Neither do horses.
The unusual tig alarms them. Sev
eral instances have occuncd. One
has just been reported to us by a
Iady While quietly driving along
one of our principle thorottghfaics,
the man in the whcelbatrow novo in
sight, ami the lady's horse began to
snort and shy, and ultimately
turned suddenly around and almost
upset tho carriage. Such a menace
to safety ought not to be permitted.
THE JUDGES BILL.
Hon. Kaulukou was at great pains
to inipiess upon the House yester
day that ho did not want the bill
for two nioio judges to pass for the
purpose of providing himself with a
niche in the temple of judicial fame.
But he failed to show that tho bill
was intended to seive any useful
purpose whatever. It has been
quite apparent from the tlrst lead
ing of the measure that no neces
sity exists for additions to the judi
ciary, a fact that was made very
prominent by the honorable member
for Koolauloa, who had taken the
trouble of enquiring at tho olllcc of
the Supreme Court clerk if there
was any work on hand, at present,
for the additional judges, upon
which ho ascertained that there is
really no unfinished business for tho
Supreme Court to adjudicate upon.
It is probable from these facts that
the bill contemplates neither more
nor less than tho pioviding of places
on the bench tor some legal aspi
rants whom it is impossible to
satisfy in any other way. The rea
sons alleged for the two additional
judgeships were, on the face of
them, as frivolous and inapplicable
as the arguments of the member on
other occasions for " indefinite post
ponement" of many sensible and
progressive measures, usually have
been. None of his alleged griev
ances aie met in the slightest degree
by the pioposed act. The system
of procedure by which a judge sits
in banco to settle appeals from his
own decisions was fully discussed
by the promoter of the bill, as well
as by subsequent speakers, Heprc
sentatives Dole, Brown and Minister
Dare, but none of them could find
any remedy for the trouble in the
measure under consideration. The
House wisely consigned the bill to
the hands of an able committee of
honorable members learned in the
law. The result of the committee's
deliberations will be awaited with
NERVE STRETCHING FOR LEPROSY.
It is well known of course to all
medical men and perhaps to many
others, that the forcible stretching
of the nerve leading to the alfeeted
pait is a recognized method of
ticatment in tho case of certain
seveio and intractable neuralgias.
The following report of an enlaiged
application of this treatment is from
the Loudon Ltmcel of June 0, 1880,
and has an especial interest for the
people of these islands.
At a recent meeting of the
Harveian Society, Dr. E. Downes
read a paper on nerve-stretching,
founded on a large expeiience in
Ivashmior, India. Of forty-two cases
recorded, thirty-two were well
marked enses of leprosy, in all of
which anesthesia (loss of sensation)
was an early and well marked
Tho anesthesia was sometimes
partial and sometimes complete, and
in a certain proportion of cases wns
accompanied by other well known
symptoms of the disease, us dis
coloration and tubercles, tho latter
inoie commonly on the face, and
often with sovcro neuralgia of tho
deeper parts. Ulceration generally
occurred in the couise of time, and
especially in the feet. This lesion,
which may havo had its beginning
in some mechanical injury to tho
insensible tissues, often extended to
complete destiuction.of the parts.
The duration of tho cases had vaiicd
up to seven years, and two of them
had lasted nioro than that time.
The operation was done through nn
incision in tho back of the thigh,
tho linger being hooked around tho
sciatic nerve nml sufficient force
being used to lift the limb from the
table. Dr. Downes reports that all
tho cases w?rc benefited by the
operation, and in somo tho tiloers
healed completely and sensation was
restored to neatly its normal state.
Tills success was fully appreciated
by the patients, who repeatedly sent
their friends suffering from leprosy
to bo aimilarly operated upon.
Yesterday's Advertiser thinks the
article on Religious Education in the
Anglican Church Chronicle would
be all tight, only that it was written
from u theological point of view.
Probably the editors of the Church
Chronicle did not count on a theolo-gico-phobist
among their ciitics, or
they would have expatiated on the
subject from a standpoint more
accessible to the literary capacity of
of their reviewer. It is to bo hoped
that the distinguished patron of
letters whose luminous ideas shed
their effulgent rays over our contem
porary's columns will not miss this
splendid oppoituuity of measuring
himself in a neological "peeler" on
education, leligious or incligious,
against the cleiical editors of the
Anglican periodical. Developments
will be awaited with intense anxiety
by all educationists.
Among the contemplated munici
pal reforms and city improvements,
why is not provision made for street
watering? The present private
speculation witli the blue barrel was
sufficient when first started, but the
growth of the cit' warrants an in
creased uumbci of watering carts,
and it should be regarded as a
matter for government direction and
under their special control, instead
of being left to private enterprise.

and elsewhere in the Kingdom ; and
an act to provide for the nieasuic
nient of vessels upon legistry at the
Minister Gibson, from the Print
ing Committee, laid on the tabic
the Appropriation Bill schedule
ordered by the house.
Pep. Kaunamano presented a re
port lrom the Sanitary Committee
on petitions from Kohala, for and
against the removal of Dr. Thomp
son, that they had had before them,
two petitions, one bearing 150 sig
natures setting foith that the doctor
devotes more of his time to tho prac
tice of law than to the practice of
medicine; the other petition with
!532 signatures assigning no specific
reasons other than their personal
icspcctand aloha, and their being
pleased with his attentions to them.
The committee recommend that the
Board of Health should direct the
doctor to give more attention to his
medical practice, and also that the
Board suggest to him that there arc
plenty lawyers iu Kohala, and that
the lives of the people are of more
importance than their legal rights.
The committee further say that the
Board of Health is the pioper
authoiity for the appointment and
lemoval of Government physicians,
and recommend that both .petitions
be laid on tho-table. Adopted.
Pep. Hichnrdson presented a maj
ority report from tho committee on
tho bill to amend an act l elating to
Stamp Duties, introduced by the
lion, member for Makawao, recom
mending certain amendments.
Tho icport was laid on the tablo
to bo considered with tho Minority
Pep. Kaunamnno read a majority
lepoit -of the committee to whom
was refened the items of 1,1120 for
pay of janitors of sepulchres and
SflOO for other expenses of sepul
chres, recommending that the items
pass as in tho Approptiatiou Bill.
Pep. Brown moved the report be
tabled to bo cousidcicd with the
Appiopnation Bill. Tho lepoit was
in Hawaiian, without an English
Pep. Dole read the minority re
port of the saino committee, in
.English, as follows;
T T1ITflT 1 ITITTTIT1
. T H
Hok. .7. S, Walkeii, President; of
the Legislative Assembly. Sin:
Your committee to whom was to
f erred tho items of $1,1)20, for pay
of janitors of sepulchcrs and SHOO
for other expenses of sepulchcrs,
offer tho following minority re
port: Tho said items wcro Introduced
by tho lato Minister of Interior,
who in reply to inquiry upon tho
subject replied that ho did not
know where the tombs in question
were located. The minority of your
committee is iu ignorance of the
piesent status of the said sepulchcrs
or what they contain or what they
are intended to contain, or whether
they are in the shape of buildings
or burial giounds, or whether they
require any care or not. Neither
has the chairman or any other mem
ber of the said committee furnished
the minority of the said committee
any information on the subject or
offerrcd to do so, or notified the
said minority of any meeting of the
said committee on the subject.
The niinoiity of your committee
therefore icport that the committee
is in the same state of ignorance
upon the subject bcfoie them as
densely enshrouded the intellect of
the late Minister of Interior at the
time lie offeied the said items.
Wherefore, as there are no sepul
chcrs or burial grounds in the Ha
waiian Islands of a national char
acter, except the Lunalilo Mauso
leum and Poyal Mausoleum in
Honolulu, and as theie is absolutely
no known, demand, necessity or re
quirement for such expendituie out
side of the two mausoleums above
referred to, and as the Legislature
have better objects for the expendi
ture of the national rccnuc, than
exhuming, disturbing, reburying
and watching over unknown bones,
and thereby incurring the appalling
danger of relaying to their last
slumbers the remains of unfortunate
individuals, with sundry important
and necessary bones belonging to
them, replaced and substituted Iry
hones belonging to other individuals
who may thereby be caused great
inconvenience and uncertaintj', the
minority of your committee feel
that in the woids of Holy writ this
Assembly had belter "let the dead
bury their dead" and proceed to
matters that will benefit the liing.
In closing their report upon this
somewhat sombre subject, the mino
rity of your committee feel assured
that the ninjoritj' have, in recom
mending the appropriation referred
to, been led astray by the delusive
and mistaken idea, that the Govern
ment is about to establish a scien
tific and harmonious network of
tombs over the group, selecting con
spicuous headlands and command
ing knolls within speaking distances
of paoh other, where, surrounded
by the silent guardianship of crumb
ling IIaw.iii.in idols and weather
worn and tattered kahilis, the
peaceful skeletons of members of
the Legislature may commingle and
disport themselves in happy relaxa
tion with the miscellaneous and
reassorted bones of the ancestors of
the Hawaiian race. But wc assuie
them that this is not the policy of
the administration; and if they
look forward to anj' such consum
mation they will be disappointed
when it is too late to remedy the
The report was tabled to be con
sidered with the majority report and
the Appropriation Bill.
Rep. Nahalc moved that the
majority and minority reports on
Mr. Geo. Lucas's claims for woik
