at tbo uon tract. Tow steamers if

iuvu been an enduring credit to
American shipbuilding. Yet tbo
tlemaud for improved steam ser
tico in tbo Pacific, coupled with
Icon competition, seems to requiio
swifter vessels oven than these,
though thoy uro not by any
menus "slow coaches."
Such ridiculous statements us
ilie one attributed to Father Con
rardi, that most of tbo largo ap
propriations for the care of lepeis
in Hawaii go for salaries of uso
k'tis officials, will lose the devoted
jjuriest much of tbo sympathy ho

aannot bo gainsaid thut, since tbo

alministration in Hawaii without
exception has provided liberally

is certainly no ground for com--pluint
that tho pationts havo not

perhaps tho most momentous pieca

Tho United States was about
shaking a strong restraining fist

So say, none of tho self-rated first

Regarding tho nppoal of Dr.

with eucalyptus lenves. Probably
ft is because the deleterious ele

fzonroly process that the natives

VISIT TO THE TESTHOUSE.
Tho eighteen inmates of tho
pesthouso bad a notable visitor
yesterday. For throo hours llov.
Father Conrardi, who has been
tho officiating pricBt at tho lopor
settlement at Molokai for tho past
eight years, was tho guest of
Superintendent Keating and As
sistant Superintendent McMillan
and their charges. Tho priest
went to see tbo lepors and dolivor
to them a message from tho simi
larly affiieted iu the Hawaiian isl
ands. Ho lias given his lifo to
tho causo of tboso Buljoring from
this curse of the natives of tho
Pacific islands, and he has but
one regret He wishes that ho
himself might become a leper in
order that the barrier bi'tweon
himself and his ilock might be re
moved. "If 1 was a leper," hays tho
priest, "I could do a great deal
morn good for them. No Board
of Health would step between tbo
patients and myself and forbid
mo associating with them at all
Tho day was fino and bright.
Tho wind whistled through tho
lino of eucalyptus trees that shel
ter tho rnmshaoklo pile of build
ings dignified by tho mfmo of
pesthoube. Father Conrardi in
troduced himself without any cere
mony. His passport to tho good
graces of Superintendent Keating
was a letter of introduction ho
brought from Secretary Godchaux
of tho Board of Health. His coni
iug was unannounced, so ho found
tho inmates totally unprepared to
receive bo notablo a visitor.
Passing through the gates to the
yard, tho first sight that caught
tho priest's oyo was tho two Bindt
brothers, who wore playing a game
of handball underneath a tree. In
a swing near by Lina Grimm, tho
Gorman girl who was recently
brought horo from Mondocino
county, was lolliug iudoloutly.A ca
sual spectator jniglit havo thought
sho was carrying on a little llirta
tion with Piedro Perrida, tho Mex
icuu lopor, who was wutching her
from a distance.
The priest walked straight to
tho little group. Dolling his hat
to tho girl in the swing, with all
tho dignity of a cavalier, he hold
out his hand to Ernest Bindt and
"I come from Molokai."
Molokai is tho opon sesame to
tho loper's heart. It is a house
hold word wherever the dread
disease is known, and tho priest
needed no further introduction.
Father Conrardi told tho Gor
man brothers ho had brought a
message to them a smallpox nurso
in this city, but now a mombor of
tho Molokai settlement. In two
minutes almost all the inmates of
tho PosthouBO wore about thp
priost. Ho had a kind word for
The Bindt boys havo been in
mates of tbo Pesthouso for ten
years, and as tho senior patients
they had precedonco in guiding
tho priest about tho plnco. Thoy
took him through tho Ohineso
dormitory, whero tho Mongolian
patients aro dying and half
dead of ovory stage of
tho disease. From there thry
piloted him to tho quartors of An
nie, thu Chinpso woman, whoso
faco is distorted out of all sem
blance to a human countenance.
Annie was engaged in playing an
air ou a mouth organ nud resent
od tho intrusion. Despite his
priestly garb, the Chineso woman,
who speaks excellent English,
proceeded to borate her visitor. It
was in vaiu he told her ho was a
priest; the patient declared ho wnB
a newspaper artist and had come
to make a sketch of her. Hor
harangue was long and high
sounding, and it might havo con
tinued indefinitely had noUFather
Conrardi dropped tho word "Mo
lokai," and thoro was silence.
Tho lopers gave tho priest a
hearty sondotl on his departure.
In his return he gave them his
Father Conrardi, dospito all tho
criticism that has beon heaped up
on the Pesthouso, says the patients
are much better cared for and
I housed than they aro in Molokai,
Japan or Canton.

This is a presidential elec

hot all over the United States.
Even Old Sol himself seems
to have stirred up his internal
fires and put on a few extra
logs, if we may judge by
newspapet accounts of the
terrific heat in Chicago, New
York and other big cities.
T.he heat engendered by the
discussion of the silver ques
tion and other campaign issues
has caused the political pot to
boil to such an extent that the
lid will blow of! and the bot
tom fall out. Republicans are
hot in the collars, the Demo
crats would be if they were
in the habit of wearing any,
while the Populists, having
got it where the chicken got
the axe, don't need any collars
and have wilted away. This
is about the condition of af
