been patoinal in degreo abnvo

the regulations of tho labor sys

tin 1 calth of their la'oorets. Horo

Upon tUO piiysicai OtlUUrailCO Ol
Coming back to tho matter of
publio hospitals horetofore al
luded to, there is tho question
of surgical operations liablo
to ariso, as hte samo thing
has just dono in tho conduct of
the Queon's Hospitnl atllouolulu.
Probably it has niso como up m
the practiso of government physi
cians whore thero is no hospital.
There is only a slight difference
in kind botuceu this question as
it concerns government phjuicnii
and as it does tin scmi-pumic
hospital here. Tho griovanco of
the rural faculty is that it should
bo expected to porform opoiations
as part of its salaried routine,
whilo it is that of tho Queen's
Hospital Trust that patiouts hnv
ing means for emp'oying surgical
skill outsido should resort to tho
hospital to secure tho special ser
vice practically for nothing. It is
not proposed hoio, however, to
disouss this question of operations
in itsolf. It would bo appropri
ate to a consideration of tho feasi
bility of establishing a free gen
eral hospital at Honolulu.
"What is important and soeming
ly requisito is that the status of
government physicians should bo
settled once for all. Thero ought
to be no Berious difficulty in the
way, once, a few broad general
principles are laid down as a
foundation. In tho first place, it
being conceded that tho poor and
lowly aro to have attendance, from
publicly salaried phyaiciunB, it
should bo adequato and undor
roasouablo limitations always
available. Whomever it is the
duty of a government physioian to
treat in accident or illness ought
to havo tho benefit of such physi
cian's best skill for saving Ihb lifo
or restoring him to hoalth. Tho
only debatable question should bo
whether tho subject is entitled to
bo tho beneficiary of oitlior tho
public charity or tho provision
duo by ompIoyerB to employed.
That is a mattor of fact to be easi
ly Bottled. Matters of compensa
tion for extraordinary skilled
soryico aro what requiio to bo
decidod by dcfinito rules and re
gulations. Whatovor terms may
be thus prescribed every govern
ment physician upon accepting
his commission would agroo to
with oyes open, so that thero
would bo no ground of futuro con
troversy on thoir part with a
plantation, or on tho part of tho
latter with tho govommont, or ou
that of any two of tho parties with
tho third. To obtain and to ro
taiu competent talent, it stands to
reason, tho govommont would
havo to bo fairly liboral on its
own" behalf, besides reasonably
hrra in requiring ooncoBQions
from employers of labor obliged
to havo medical attendance thero
for. Districts, owing to changing
conditions in them, will noed to
havo thoir boundaries roviBod
from timo to timo, bo that tho
publio mrdical iipptopriatiotis
shall be expi tided to the best ad
vanlngo. Tho UuLLuriN has only
a dim idoa of the concroto facts,
in any difficulties of tho nature
herein montioncd. What is horo
written iB done with a viow to
procuring u clearly defined and
harmoniously working system
for the futuro. If now legislation
bo necessary to that end, lot us
havo it upon tho earliest oppor
tunity. By a decision of tho Supremo
Court of Now York, tho clauses
in tho will of the lato Samuel J.
Tilden devising considerable sums
for public libraries nremado void.
Theso clauses aro held to violato
tho statuto against perpetuities.
Judge Beokman, who rendered
tho decision, said that tho main
purpose ot tlio will to ostamtsn
a library in New York City liav-1
iu umu utnenini iuu uumi mum
not mako a now will for Mr. Til
den. No time was specified with
in which tho trusts of S100.000
each for libraries at Now Lebanon
and Yonkors woro to bo executed
by any lifo in being, and tho luw
was well settled that iu the caso
of a charitablo trust such limita
tion was indispensable. Tho
trustees had become accouutablo
to the next of kin for the whole of
tho residuary estate. An Ameri
can exchange suggests tho ndvis
ability of legislation to toko pub
lic libraries out of the category of

Tuborculosis is declared on au
thority to bo existent, if not pre

all cost. While inspection has to
begin Boraowhore, it should bo
pursued so quickly that complaint
of Miciiniir.btion cannot be rea
sonably laid against tho authori
ties. Tho Pacific Coast has for
aomo timo been thoioughly roused
to action for ejectiug tho tn.suhous
invader of tho public hoalth from

Congressman Dingloy lately
denied that tho Republicans woro
opposed to reciprocity, saying
thoy woro disposed to go at leabt
as far as tho McKinley bill on
that Bubjoct. It was reciprocity
with other sugar countries under
that bill which nullified the ad
vantages of reciprocity to Hawaii.
Stick a pin thore, yo who put
your confidence iu the reciprocity
treaty as all sufficient.
