WEDNESDAY, DEC. 24, 1890.
Christmas hath many memories.
It is a day full of joy. It is a reli
gious feast day instituted in memory
of the birth of the founder of
Christianity. It is a day full of
significance and faith for raany,while
it is observed by many more to the
manner born. The larger part of
the civilized world marks yearly
periods of duration by the passage
of this day and the advent of the
New Year. Though not so univer
sally observed as the New Year,
which is celebrated by Christian and
pagan alike, yet the observance of
Christmas Tide carries with it, per
haps, more of universal good, be
cause following the footsteps of the
world's highest development and
Wc need not here enter the great
field of modern enquiry and cri
ticism, which leaves the accepted
date of Christ's birth more than
ever an open question, if not an
admitted error. This is be9ide both
the purpose and observance of the
day. It matters not: Christ was
born and the celebration follows the
fact rather than the historical criti
cism. The observance and real
significance of Christmas has long
since outgrown the existence as a
religious symbol. Christmas to us,
of the modern world, represents no
theory and imposes no belief. To
us it is too closely linked with phy
sical comfort and habit to receive a
casuist's attention. At the same
time, while exerting a powerful in
fluence through our sociology,
Christmas has so inter-woven itself
with our personal memories and
family traditions that its observance
bus become a portion of ourselves,
of our civilization and, in fact, chief
of our household gods.
In the frozen North and the sun
ny South, in tho dueling East and
the frugraiit West, in every ollmo
and among every condition of men,

LETTER FROMJJR, LUTZ.
(lurnllnti or IMnlttlirrln In tln I
Immediately after my arrival on
this Island, some casci of diphtheria
were reported to the Ho.iid of
Health. 1 wa present nt n meet
ing when tho question was discuss
ed. Thcro was grent reluctance to
admit the existence of tho dreath-d
disease, and a9 the reporting physi
cians could not produce any evi
dencethe patients cither having
died or recovered their statement
was aacepted with distrust, and the
public remained in doubt. Hut
facts arc stubborn things, and the
tragedy in the Lyons family cut
short nil further discussion on that
point. Those cases cannot be ac
counted for by the state of tho pre
mises, as an ofllctal report would
have us believe, because diphtheria
is a disease which spares not the
richest and makes victims in prince
ly families. On the contrary, theie
cau be hardly any doubt that these
cases wcie in connection with n rc
norted and doubted, or with an un
recognised case. However, the dis
ease remained limited, which was
attributed to the sanitary measures
This experience, with others
made with small-pox, ought to be
sufficient to prevent the conscien
tious physician from being more or
less publicly contradicted, when do
ing his duty in communicating sus
pect cases." Unfojtunatcly this is
not the case. Since that time no
less than six physicians had occa
sion to sec and report cases of diph
theria, and everyone of them had
the annoyance of being more or less
publicly and officially contradicted,
while he was preparing to struggle
with one of the most insidious and
treacherous diseases. Of course it
is far easier to deny the existence
of an infectious disease than to take
the necessary steps to prevent its
spreading ; but those who do this,
incur a very heavy responsibility.
This refers not only to public offi
cials but also to the press. If this
should continue, physicians cannot
be expected to report suspect cases
(although this be absolutely neces
sary) ; as even when reporting the
most strongly characterized ones,
they only win contradiction and
abuse. In almost every case, the
subsequent history ha3 proved be
yond the shadow of a doubt that the
diagnosis was right and the hasty
Tho child on Punchbowl street,
died of the disease, and two of the
patients in Vineyard street were for
many days on the brink of the
grave, one ot tnem being only saved
by tracheotomy, and the other by
instibution, both being still in dan
ger. I have kept some of the diph
theritical membranes of the latter
cases, and am ready to show them
to anyone who doubts the facts.
As to the professional men, who,
after a hurried examination, were so
ready to systematically contradict
the treating physicians (although
the latter knew diphtheria before'
coming to Honolulu) we hope they
may refresh their memory by tho
study of a good modern work on
Tho question now arises where
these cases originated. They might
have been in connection with last
j'ear's cases, the virus of diphtheria
being able to be preserved on inani
mate objects for quite as long a
time. But when we see in the
newspapers, that California is full
of diphtheria, and that in San Fran
cisco 225 cases have been reported
in one month we have not only a
more natural explanation, but also a
constant source of danger. There
is every reason for being careful not
to let diphtheria bo added to the
already too long list of endemic
As some people seem to believe
that the danger of diphtheria is a
slight and passing one, wo may as
well refer to the acts of the last
international Medical Congress in
Berlin, where the question of diph
theria was extensively treated. Pro
fessor Loehrer of Uieifswald, one of
the collaborators of Koch, who in
1884 first characterized the specific
bacillus (now generally acknowledg
ed as the cause of the disease), and
who studied the disease for more
than six years, being certainly the
greatest authority on the question,
was one of the leaders in the discus
sion ; and Roux, who may bo con
sidered as the first authority in
France (as far as pathology of diph
theria be concerned), the other.
Both came, by their studies, to al
most identical results. Loelllcr re
ports a caso in which by a daily
bacteriological examination of the
throat, the specific bacilli were
found to be living until tho 24th
day, that is, 19 days after the feyer
had subsided. The membranes had
disappeared on tho 19th day, but
from tho 22nd to the 23rd day a new
little while patch hud been formed.
He states that the patient should
not he allowed free intercourse with
the outside world until a week after
the disappearance of tho mem
branes, and that children should be
kept from school for at least four
weeks after the beginning of the
The bucilll of diphtheria could be

by Klein for 18 months; they begin
to multiply at 08 ovoii outside of

l.oifller recommends tho use of
sublimate 1.10000 for gargling; mid
the disinfection of clothes, eating
and drinking utensils, oU, by boil
Inc wale; or steam. The lloor otiithl
to be washed repeatedly with subli
mate solution 1.1000, and tho walls
cleaned by rubbing with bread
crumb. This last method, introduced
by Esiuarch, has been shown by re
peated experiments to be very effec
tual, while it does not spoil the wall
puper or furniture.
However, it would be a strango
illusion to think that in private
houses, disinfection and isolation
could be so exactly carried out as
to prevent any chance of infection.
For this reason Loefller recommends
the treatment of diphtheritic patients
in separata hospital wards. Now,
if this bo true for Berlin, (where tho
hygienic institutions are most per
fect, and tho disinfectant system
wholly based on the most advanced
scientific experiments) it Is still
more so for Honolulu, where such is
not the case. The public has a right
to claim that a separate place should
be established for tho treatment of
patients with diphtheria (either with
or without a member of their family
to nurse them) where they may find
a nurse and a physician designed
Other physicians may or may not
treat the patients there, but they
should not be obliged to injure their
private practice by treating diph
theria, when they often meet witli
nothing but ingratitude for their
pains. Dn. Lutz.
