THE DAILY BULLETIN.
Pledged to neither Sect nor Party,
But Established for the Benefit of All.
WEDNESDAY, JULY 26, 1893.
Portugal, according to a roport
from tho Orient, has oxactod the
privilogo of consular jurisdiction in
Japan from tho Japauoso Govorn
mont. Portuguoso subjects abroad
havo no reason to complain of tho
caro takou of them by their Govern
ment. For want of news and onorgy to
get it, tho Advertiser tilled up some
inches of its sterile oxpauso this
morning with lying impertinences
about tho internal affairs of tho
Bulletin ofilco. Tho known demo
ralization in tho Advertiser staff is
no excuse for such disreputable
tactics, so far as tho respectable
owners aro concerned.
Mr. Carter, in a letter published
in this issuo, offectually disposes of
tho underhanded attempts of the
Advertiser and Star to place him in
a false position regard iug the Kala
lau matter. To use a slaug phrase,
ho gives it to his traducers "where
the chicken got the ox.' His letter
further removes all difficulty from
tho public mind, in respect to plac
ing tho responsibility for tho dis
astrous events at Kalalau.
ITS LATEST DISCOVERY.
More than a column of the Star's
dreary pages yesterday was occupied
by tho dry details of a labor con
tract. Tho document is claimed to
havo been found on the street, but
moro likely it was stolen. It pur
ports to be a contract with Captain
Ferguson, at present visiting Hono
lulu, bj' Japanese who choose to go
to Guatemala as agricultural labor
ers. As it binds the party of the
first part, who it appears is an agent
of tho Government of Guatemala, to
givo very good treatment to the
laborers, it is hard to see what tho
Star is making a fuss about. Jap
anese whoso contracts havo expired
in this country are free agents, and,
as many of them go homo when
their terms have expired, it is no
body's business but their own if
they like to engage for work in any
other country. Storekeepers and
mechanics of other nationalities
would bo only too glad if all the
Japanese who do not renew thoir
contracts wore to take themselves
away to Guatemala, or Timbuctoo
for tho matter of that. To give
semblauco of public importance to
tho private business of Captaiu
Ferguson, tho Star drags in the
name of Mr. Paul Noumaun as "the
agent of the planters for the intro
duction of Japanese labor." Ac
cording to tho Star, Captain Fergu
son is a guest of Mr. Neumann,
thoroforethe "chain of conspiracy is
complete! That is just about the
size of tho Star's journalism. Its.
dismal moras of ink may next bo
expected to blossom with tho plans
and specifications of repairs to somei
ANOTHER BAFFLED ASSAULT-..
To prove that Dr. Trousseau has
not been of the same mind for
twenty years, iu the belief that lep
rosy was not contagious, the Star
quotes from tho testimony of tho
doctor in a libel caso ten yoars ago.
The testimony contains this state
ment, "1 did at first believe it was
not contagious, but since I havo ob
served it closely I cannot account
for tho enormous increase oxcopt
that it is contagious." His further
testimony, which it is unnecessary
to reprint here, shows that Dr
Trousseau, at tho timo ho testified,
believed the disease to be conta
gious, only in a very limited degree
In other words, it was not conta
gious in tho popular acceptation of
tho-word, such as smallpox, measles,,
etc. His lately published letter,
quoted by the Star, differs little
in faenho from his cited testi
mony, when ho writes, "1
admit, with tho conclusions of
tho roport, that leprosy is communi
cable from man to man, but uo more
than tuberculosis," etc. For a space
in his twenty-two years' residence
hore, about the timo of tho libel
suit, it appears the doctor was some
what shaken iu his originally formed
conviction of non-contagiousuess.
Uo had become appalled at tho rapid
increase in tho disease, and could
not for tho moment account for this
otherwiso than by tho contagious
theory. When intorviowed for tho
Bulletin a year aftor testifying iu
tho libel caso, as previously stated,
ho would not spoak positively on tho
subject. Quoting him from memory
his language was as followw: "I
would not presume to decide. But 1
know that thoro is an increase iu the
Dumber of foreigners who coino to
ino for treatment for leprosy," It
is to bo observed that nothing is
quoted from Dr. Trousseau, whoruin
ho offers therupuwtiual or technical
ovidouco of the tlioory of contagious
uuub ho (a shown to have, mouiou-
tarily at least, hold. Tho facts that
Influenced his mind for tho time,
while ho still earnestly pursued his
investigations, wore only facts such
as would be equally clear on thoir
fnco to laymen. Iu rogard to nuy
lino of human progress tho mind
that does not change from one do
cado to auothor is a staguaut mind.
That a physician of unquestioned
eminence, with talents acquired as
well as iuhoritod, and possessing an
inquiring mind, should hold, with
exactly the same degree of tenacity,
precisely tho samo opinions of any
disonso to-day which ho held ten or
twenty years ago, would bo a marvol.
The very fact that, at an intermediate
period, Dr. Trousseau's views waver
ed from first conclusions, only to re
vert to them aftor further years of
patient and sincere investigation, is
ouo of tho strongest reasons that
can influence a non-professional but
'intelligent mind toward tho opinion
that ho is moro probably right to
day than ho was ten yoars ago when
on the witness stand. In nuy case
tho citations of tho Star, as shown
in tho foregoing, utterly fail to
prove radical inconsistency on tho
part of tho doctor. Put tho state
ments togothor again, and hero is
tho result: Dr. Trousseau said in
3SS3 that "leprosy is contagious,
not as much so as eruptive
diseaaosj leprosy is commu
nicated not by simple cou
tact of uuabraded souud surfaces
aud not through tho air." Ho says
in 1893 that "leprosy is communi
cable from mau to man, but no moro
than tuborculosis." For tho Star
with all its crew to assail Dr. Trous
seau on anj- point of professional
standing or personal honor can only
be likened to tho viper gnawing at
Lottor from Mr. Carter.
As my name has been freely used
in connection with the Kalalau af
fair, Tather unscrupulously by your
evening contemporary, it seems do
sirablo for me to say something
about the affair in self-defense. The
Star writer says:
"Hon. W. U. Smith comes in for
unlimited abuse fiom the ex-Queen's
organ because of the Kalalau expedi
tion, which it says he is responsible
for. How iudecont aud unjust this
proceeding is may bo seen iu tho
fact ,that Minister Smith opposed
and resisted tho Kalalau movement
but was overruled iu tho Board of ,
Health by a prominent Itoyalist and I
his friends. From first to last Mr.
Smith w.is convinced that tho at
tempt to remove the lepers at this
time was inexpedient. The whole
responsibility tor tho tragedies rests
upon other .shoulders thau his."
As 1 believe that I was tho
ouly member of tho Board of Health
who was not an annexationist it is
not unreasonable for me to suppose
that I was the "prominent Royalist"
who, with his lrionds, forced tho
president of that board to do the
thing which ho did not wish to do.
This statomout has amusing as well
as serious features. My purpose now
is to show that responsibility for tho
Kalalau tragedy cannot bo made to
rest upon the shoulders of any mem
ber ol tho Board of Health; wher
ever else it may rest is no matter of
mine. As the Board of Health was
powerless to act without tho assist
ance of the police, and as tho presi
dent of that board is also tho Attorney-General,
aud as such officer
has control of tho police, it would
seem that all he had to do was to
follow tho policy of several of his
predecessors and refuse the assist
ance of the police in arresting the
lepers at Kalalau. This would have
otloctually blocked tho "promiueut
Royalist aud his friends" iu an at-
tempt to put tho president of the
board in straits. Tho recent ac
tion of the Board of Health in tho
I Kalalau matter was brought up by
! a letter from its agent at Waimoa,
Kauai, who was also a Duputy-Shor-;
iff. This letter was read at tho board
meeting held on tho 5th of May,
calling tho attention of tho board to
the fact that a number of lepers
wero at Kalalau aud stated that if be, if it hoard its name it would an
they wero to bo removed action to ' swer with a meow aud trot up liko
that onu should not uo delayed bo-
yond tho month of July.
During tho discussion ol the lottor i
the president criticised the members
of tho former board for not romov
iug tho lepers, wlieu ho was at once
told by tho senior moinbor of the
board that all attempts to remove
them, of which thero had been gov-1
oral, had proved fruitions because
tho police authorities had refused '
tho assistance which tho law pro- t
viueu. Alter mis passage at arms
tho president and members of tho
board spoko of tho possible danger
.to life, tho expoiibo ot sueh removal,
and tho wisdom of making tho at
tempt at tho time. During the dis
cussion, realizing the responsibility
for taking action, I said that it
would be well for the president be
fore taking any action as Attornoy
Gonoral to discuss tho matter with
his colleagues of the Government.
In tho face of this cautionary advice,
how can it bo said by any latr mind
ed person that thoio was any design
on uiy part to foment trouble? Tho
result of tho discussion was tho pas
sage of a resolution, suggested by
tho president, that tho aguut of the
bouid at Waimoa visit Kalalau and
make a full report upon the num
ber, ago, and sex of tho lepers in
that valley, and upon Mich other
matters as bore upon the question
under consideration. This report
camo to hand in duo season.
Discussions took place ut meotiugs
of the board held .May 17th, illft
aud Juno KJtli, during which 1 can
not recall that the piesideut oppos
ed or resisted tho proposed removal
of the h'poMj but that ho did niaku
suggestions to facilitate thu action
ol mo board. If iny memory servos
uiu every resolution of tho board
tuuchiug this mattor was carriud
without tt diabimtiug vote. I am iu-
formod by tho Attornoy-Gonoral
that tho deputy sh.-riff of Waimoa
called at his office with tho Marshal
and discussed tho proposed removal
of tho lepers at some length, and
that it was finally decidod at this
conforonco, of the police authorities
mark you, to allow tho deputy sher
iff to carry out his plans unhindered
from headquarters. This final ac
tion of tho Attorney-General, aftor
my suggestion that ho should con
sult tho other members of tho Gov
ernment boforo douidiug upon any
action looking to tho removal of tho
lepers, most certainly relieves "a
prominent Royalist and his friends"
of auy responsibility for tho tragedy
at Kalalau. J. O. Carted.
S. S. RIO DE JANEIRO.
A Chlnoso Passongor Rojocted
Japnnoso Laborers for tho South.
Tho P. M. S. S. Citv of Rio do Janei
ro, J. T. Smith, commander, arrived
from the Oriout early this morning.
Tho stoainor oncouutorod head
winds all tho way. Besides ouo
hundred tous of cargo the steamer
had four tourists cabin passengers,
eleven Japanese aud ton Chinese
steerage for this port, including four
women. All the Chinoso with tho
oxcoption of ono man showed return
permits. Tho latter was rejected.
Ho had undoubtedly beon posted by
frionds on a certain locality in town,
viz., tho Chinoso Theatre and Oaliu
Prison. When asked whether ho
know where tho Palaco, Chinese
club houso or horsocar was, ho re
plied in the negative. Tho man
claimed that he was previously a
resident of Honolulu for fivo years.
Ho was nevertheless refused landing,
and through his frionds secured
lesral aid and will contest tho caso.
The Chinese and Japaneso will bo

The Ro de Janeiro was thronged
throughout tho day with a curious
crowd of people. Tho monkeys and
birds in tho forward part of the
steamer attracted tho greatest num
ber, while iu a dark recess near the
bow an enterprising Chinoso sailor
peddled out bowls of liquor at 10c.
a drink. Tho Rio was built in 1878
by J. Roach & Son, of Now York
aud Chester, Pa. She is well fitted
out with modern improvements, and
is a comfortablo traveling boat.
The Rio will resume her voyage
to the Coast at 6 o'clock this even
ing. Among her passengers will bo
thirty-throe Japanese, who are en
route to Guatemala, South America.
They havo all signed contracts
with Captain Ferguson, now iu Ho
nolulu, to servo terms on coffee
plantations in Guatemala. Thirty
Japanese laborers, signed by Cap
tain Ferguson went on tho S. S.
Oceanic two weeks ago. In all tho
captain has signed contracts with
about one hundred Japaueso to go
to work on coffee plantations in
PET OAT FOULLY SHOT.
Another Instance of Diaregurd
About 11:15 oVlock two pistol
shots awoke tho stillness of the
night iu tho vicinity of Alapai street.
Investigation was uiado,but,asnooiio
could louato where the shots emanat
ed, a telephone message was sent to
tho Station. Captains Hookano and
Kleiiiine promptly responded. The
oflicors wont into a cottage in a lane
on King street on tho Wnikiki side
of Alapai street, and knocked at tho
door. Tho houso was in darkness at
tho timo. Tho rosidont of the house,
a Gorman, poked his head out aud
asked, "Vots do mattor?" Tho offi
cers asked him whether ho had douo
any shooting that night. Ho replied
that bo did and showed tho officers
a largo tortoise shell cat lying iu tho
yard, which ho had shot. Thoro
were two bullot marks in tho feline's
Mr. Parmontor and three boys
live in a house close to tho fence
where tho shots wero fired and wore
dangerously imperiled b' the shoot
er's bullets. They wore frightened
nearly out of their wits.
Tho cat was afterward found out
to be a pot belonging to Mrs. H. T.
Walker, who thinks it was a piece of
spite on tho part ot somoono. Tho
animal, which answered to tho name
ot "loin my," was highly prized

If it is a fact that diphtheria
has made its appearance here
it behooves every one who has
children to use the utmost care
in preventing the disease en
tering their homes. There are
many ways by which it may
be contracted, but none of them
more innocently than through
the drinking water. If you
wish to prevent it in that direc
tion there is but one method
at hand filter the water you
use for household purposes.
After years of experience and
many practical tests by. emi
nent physicians the Natural
Stone Filter has been awarded
the medal of excellence for its
superior quality. The Improv
ed Natural Stone Filter is as
much superior to the Gate
City Stone Filter as the latter
is to the conventional Char
coal Filter that has been so
much advertised. It is need
less to say that we sell the
Improved and diptheritic
germs cannot possibly get
through the porous stone by
which the water is filtered.
If you have any fears of the
disease your first duty to your
self and your children is to
buy a filter.
The run on Kempshall Hose
Menders was so great as to
be surprising even to us.
This little article is far and

If your hose is leaky and you
do not want to buy a new one
get a Kempshall Mender.
When we mentioned Eng-.
lish Toilet Sets to you last
week, we did not expect the
entire population of Honolulu
was coming to buy them in a
day. We wanted, for obvious
reasons, to have the sale hold ,
out awhile, but the prices were
too cheap the people could
not resist them, so that you
now have but twenty sets to
select from a toilet set of
eleven pieces for $4 is just a
little bit cheaper than if you ,
bought a tin set, but every ,
one prefers English China. :
