TIIK NKW HOSPITAL
Editor Eveninci Bulletin:
Tho residents, present and pros
pectivo, of Kaluaopalena suburb,
Kalihi, do not relish the idea of
tho creation of a one lunged con
tingent in thoir midst by tho es
tablishment of a hospital for in
curables in tlieir immediate
Whether there is scientific basis
for tho belief that an institution
placed as this is intended, will by
drainago, contaminate tho em
rounding section and a consider
nble part of Kalihi valley, or
whether bacilln from evaporated
sputa incorporated with dust
wafted over their heads and into
thoir homos will devplop con
sumptives among themselves and
childron, nro propositions they
aro riot prepared to prove; but
such bolief obtains among many
of them, aud thoro is probably as
much foundation for it, as belief
to, the contrary.
It appears that a dazzling
future is biug developed for the
people of Kalihi. They alretdy
have the Receiving Station for the
unfortunate lopers, and now comes
this Hospital, with its dangerous
iumntcs, coupled with the likeli
hood of the location of Honolulu's
new City of the Dead, "richt ad
jacent," at Kahauiki.
All that would be necessary to
round out this scheme of develop
ment to a condition of harmony
and perfection is to propose tho
annexation of tho Quarantine
Station, which as shown by an
honored aud respected'' citizen's
plan of Harbor expansion, must
in timo bo removed from its pres
Whilo the people of tho abovo
suburb recognize the commend
able spirit of humanitarianism
manifested by tho promotors of
tho Hospital for incurablos, as
tho necessity of conserving the
publio health, yet they are con
vinced that a site equally health
ful as tho ono proposed could be
selected somo distance 'from the
residential portions of the cilv
whore no ono would bo menaced.
