THURSDAY, JULY 27, 1893.
What effect the sudden death of
President Caruot of France which
has been exclusively roported in the
Bulletin will have on the disturbed
condition of affairs in Paris it is use
less to guess. The latest previous
news was that the President was
likely to bo forced out of office, by
public discontent over his leniency
to the mobs of the rough olemeut.
Perhaps, when his last illness threat
ened to be fatal, his Cabinet pro
vided for the emergency that has
A TRIFLE TOO FA8T.
Under displayed head linos the
Star boasts in prize ring terms of h.
second triumph over Dr. Trousseau.
It quotes a bare majoritj of a special
committee of tho Leprosy Fund,
upon the Report of tho Leprosy
Commission iii India, dissenting
from their conclusions to which Dr.
Trousseau has given his adhesion.
But tho Star dishonestly conceals
the fact that it was only a majority
report, speaking of tho deliverance
as that of the whole body. It was a
report in fact of but six members
against five. And who wero the
five? They wore all of the medical
members of the committee. Their
dissenting report is given below:
"We tho undorsignod members of
tho Executive Committee of tho Na
tional Leprosy Fund dosiro to ox
press our approval of tho Commis
sioners' Iteport, which wo regard as
a vory careful record of well-observed
facta. Wo concur with their sug
gestions of tho practical measures to
bo taken for tho control or tho re
striction of tho disease in India.
We dissent from tho opinion ex
pressed in tho body of tho Koport of
the Speciul Committee on the sub
ject of the contagion of Leprosy,
and from tho recommendations
founded on that opinion. We be
lieve that the ovidonco of tho spread
of Leprosy by contagion is not (
sufficient, to justify tho compulsory
segregation of lepers, though the ,
institution of Homes in winch they
may voluntarily rosido may be vory !

IiOttor From tho Attoruoy-Gonoral.
It is with regrot that I feel obliged
to roply to Mr. J. O. Cartor'a" lottor
in this ovening's Bulletin rolativo
to tho action of tho Board of Health
in tho mutter of tho Kalalau lepers,
foTho has not stated tho case fairly
In that sad affair tho Board of
Health and its agont, Mr. h. H.
Stolz, wore responsible up to tho
time Mr. Stolz was murdered. After
that, the Government took stops to
apprehend tho murderer, and (upon
a warrant sworn out by an agent of
tho Board), to arrest tho lepers.
Tho duty and power to remove
lepers is vested by law in the Board
of Health, and is stated in Section 3
of the Act passed January 3, 18G5.
(See Compiled Laws, page 521). It
roads: "Section 3. Tho Board of
Health, or its agents, aro authorized
and empowered to cause to bo iso
lated and confined, in some place or
places for that purpose provided, all
leprous patients who shall bo deem
ed capable of spreading tho disease
of leprosy; and it shall be the dutj'
of every polico and district justice,
when property applied to for that
purpose by the Board of Health, or
its authorized agents, to cause to bo
arrested and delivered to tho Board
of Health, or its agents, any person
alleged to bo a leper, within the
jurisdiction of such Polico or Dis
trict Justice; and it shall bo the duty
of tho Marshal of tho Hawaiian Isi
ands and his deputies, and of tho
police officers, to asssst in securing
tuo conveyance ot any person so ar
rested, to such place as the Board of
Health or its agouts may direct, in
order that such person may bo sub
jected to medical inspection, and
thereafter to assist in removing such
person to a place of treatment, or
isolation, if so required by the
agents of tho Board of Health."
The whole power and authority
to segregate lepers is vested in tho
board aud its agents; and tho whole
matter is under the direction of the
board and its agents.
Mr. Stolz, as agent of the board,
first called attention to tho matter.
As such agent ho was first requested
to obtain tho information as to tho
number of lepers at Kalalau; and
next to go there aud soek to persu
ade them to go to Molokai; and
finally ho went again, as such agent,
to try to remove certain ones who
had not consented, at tho previous
visit, to come. Ho had no warrant
of arrest, nor any authority except
ing as an agent of tho board. Pre
vious to going to Kalalau ho had
boon agont only for tho District of
Waimoa, but, at his request, ho was
on the 17th day of May commission
ed as agent lor Waimea, Kalalau
and Niihau. This appointment was
discussed and authorized at a meet
ing of tho board, at which Mr.
Carter was present, aud for tho spe
cial purpose of dealing with the Ka
lalau and Niihau lepers.
The buard, Mr. Curtor concurring,
had arranged that Mr. Reynolds, its
executive oilicer, should assist Mr.
Stolz, but Mr. Stolz objecting (bo
cause ho thought the presence of a
stranger might arouse opposition),
I told him, at tho interview with the
Marshal, that Mr. Reynolds need
not go. I afterwards roported this
action to tho board, aud it was ap
proved. In authorizing steps to bo taken
to remove tho Kalalau lepers all the
members of tue board were respon
sible, although the one who urged
the action most strongly was Mr.
Carter. I do not wish to shrink any
reaponsibiliti that fairly belongs to
me, but tho other members, aud the
oxecutivo officer, tho Secretary, Mr.
Johnstone and Dr. Howard, who
were present at tho mooting, will at
test to the fact that I opposed the
measure. After briefly interviewing
tho history of tho relations of the
board, and of tho Legislature, to tho
question of removing thoso people,
aud how they had boon allowed to
remain there for a number of years,
I objected on tho grouuds of the
danger involved, tho expense, and
the inexpediency of agitating tho
bubjeet in view of the present state
of public affairs.
The discussion provoked some
warmth, and finally, upon my sug
gestion that moro information, as to
tho uuinbor aud condition of the
people there, bo obtained before we
took stops to remove them, a vote in
favor of their removal was taken.
At one time during the discussion
Mr. Carter suggested that 1 confer
with my colleagues of tho Executive
Council upon tho subject; but, after
tho suggestion was mado about
obtaining further information aud
seeking to persuadu them to come,
nothing moro at any time was said
about such couferouce, although
tho matter of removing tho lepers
was under discussion at several
Mr. Cartor's fitatemont, in his lot
tor, that "tho Board of Health was
powerless to act without tho assist
ance of tho polico," is incorrect and
misleading tho impression bought
to bo given being that I, as Attorney-General
aud at tho head of
tho Police Depart moat, was solely
responsible. Jivery stop I took,
after tho original voto, was at the
instance or with the approval of Mr.
Carter and tho other members of the
Jn view of tho facts, which aro
known to all tho ineiuburs of tho
Board, Mr, Carter's statement that
ho is relieved of any lespousibilily
for the tiagudy at Kalalau, is sim

MACHINE FOB, MAKING J?OI.
Now Invention by Capt. Itobortson
for Mashing tho Taro.
Captain J. R. Robertson has in
vented a t aro-poundor, or poi-making
machine, which is calculated to rovo
lutionizo tho industry of manufac
turing tho Hawaiian nntional staff
of lifo. Many people who boliovo
that poi is a wholesomo article of
diot abstain from it because they
have soon its manufacture by tho
Chinese Tuo process is visiblo in
scores of poi shops throughout Ho
nolulu. Two Chinamen bared to
tho waist sit opposite to each other,
over a wooden mortar containing tho
taro, and with smooth stones having
no handles beat tho mass into the
required consistency. It is warm
work and tho Chinaman has per
spiratory functions like any other
man, so that with tho unfiltored city
water added at intervals is mingled
a proportion of Mongolian sauco
not mentiouiM in tho cook books.
This invention h .v described is
not tho first mechanical device for
tho manufacture of poi, but it is ex
pected by its inventor to bo supe
rior to any other and to suporsedo
all processes. It follows tho princi
ple of tho manual operation while
avoiding all contact ot tuo Human
hand with tho food material except
in feeding tho dry taro bulbs. Two
woodou stamps or beators capable
of boing increased to four aro
made to drop, like tho stamps
in a quartz-crushing mill, upon tho
raw material contained iu a round
aud revolving tub. As each stamp
drops it strikes a beveled cleat, caus
ing a scraper to movo an inch or
two. Tho scraper thus kcops tho
mass to the outer part, of the tub's
interior, whore il conies repeatedly
under tho stamps until tho process
is complete. Water is added through
a sprayer. Tho ordinary size of tub
will be three foet iu diameter and
perhaps 12 to 18 inches deep. Each
charge of taro will tako 15 or 20
minutos to reduce to poi.
With steam or electric power it
will be practicable to have a battery
of several machines on ono shaft.
One factory with a moderately-sized
plant would bo able to supply many
hundreds of customers. Evou if
worked by hand, it is probablo that
tho machine would, to the small
Chinese poi-makors themselves, bo
a boon to be eagerly adopted. A
working model of tho invention is
to be seen at tho stables of Mr. C.
W. Ashford on Berotania street,
where it was inspected yesterda'
afternoon by Messrs. J. C. White
and G. L. Ritmau, proprietors of
the National Iron Works, and a
Bulletin representative. The opin
ion of tho mechanics on tho machine
was favorable. Captain Robertson
has taken out a patent on tho in
vention. 'TRICKS THAT ARE VAIN.'
How Chinese Bird Fanciers on the
Steamers Improve on Nature.
Sinco tho Chinese steamers have,
largo as well as small, begun coming
into port, on tho deepening of the
channel, there has arisen a ''flutter
among tho dove cotes." There are
Chinamen in tho crew of ovory one
of the liners who do a livolj- business
in selling canaries and other feather
ed pot stock. Prices have ruled rea
sonably aud interest in tho new bird
traffic has entered all the households
of Honolulu. Evon tho P. G. shares
in the general happiness, for its cus
toms officers gather in 25c. or 50c.
for each bird before its buyer leaves
the wharf. At first it was 50c. said
to bo on tho cage, but latterly it has
been 25c. on tho bird. As pairs gou
eralby aro taken, tho result is the
same in both cases.
Early buyers of birds on the
stoamor .Rio do Janeiro j'osterdaj
wero afforded what they deemed a
rare opportunity, llieir oyos wore
gratified at tho sight of what scorn
ed to be an entirety novel class of
canary. It had tho conventional
yellow plumage, but the tips of the
tail and wings wero tinged with
pink, making a delicate and delight
ful contrast with the prevailing hue
of tho bird's appaiel. All tho birds
of this beautifully variegatod class
found eager purchasers at a dollar a
head over tho oidinary class. Of
course tho first thing to"do with the
birds when taken to their now homes,
after thoir long sea voyage, was to
give them refreshments'. When our
new species of canary was given
water, it was more in haste to take a
bath than to tako a drink. .Judge
of tho vexation of my lady, lately
tho proud possessor ol a bird that
would eclipse in glory all other birds
in the block, when slio gazed on the
darling alter it had completed its
ablutions. There was 110 more pink
on up ol wing or tail. The water in
which it had just now disported
hold all of tho pink thoro had been
iu its plumage. What was wore.
tho bird, as if insulted beyond con
doueuient at being made to strut
under false pretenses, positively re
fused to sing. For itself, it was sat
isfied to bo tho most ordinary kind
of eauary. It would have no part
in the '"ways that aro dark and tricks
that aro vain," for which its late
master, "tho heathen Chinee," prov
ed himself to bo "peculiar."

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
away the cheapest and best
hose mender on the market.
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.
Table Cutlery which we sell
at regular prices will outwear
