THE DOCTORS TALK IT OYER
Medical Association Has M Evening of
Discussion of the Black Plague.
Some Interesting Presentations -Ho Conclusions
Recorded Opinion Offered by Members
and VtsltOTs Questions Asked.
VERY little inueeu mat was at uu

ERY little Indeed that was at all
new was brought out in tne
course of the three and a half
hours of meeting of the Ha
waiian Medical Association in tne
big dining room of the Pacific Club
on Saturday evening last In call
ing the meeting to order President C.
B. Cooper mado a graceful and very
earnest address on tho situation and
tim iiutv of tho nhvslclans of tho com
munity nnd themselves. Discussion of
i ho nlacue was then taken up. Dr.
Geo. nerocrt mado tho opening state
ment, telling of the first caso, that of
tho Chinaman who died at tho Wing
Wo Tal premises on Nuuanu street near
King. This la one of tho deaths re-
nnip.l nfliclnllv bv tho Board of
Health as having been caused by black
or bubonic plague.
Dr. alter Hoffman, tho government
bacteriologist mado n concise stato-
- ment m which ho said that taking tho
results of his researches with the
microscope, tho autopsies he had held
and atl tho facts sunoundlng tho
deaths of tho "Wing Wo Tal Chinese
nnd the South Sea Islander who died
on Queen street, back of tho Opera
House, he was prepared to state It as
his com lctlon that these two men had
died of black plague. Dr. Hoffman was
closely questioned by Dr. J. H. Ray
mond, who seemed Inclined to the
opinion that tho deaths might have
been caused by food poisoning and that
tho existence of black plague had not
been proven. Dr. L. F, Alvarez said
that to his mind every showing was
ngalnst reaching a verdict that there
liad ieen a case or appearanco of
black plague. Ho was convinced that
thero was no plague. Dr. Alvarez was
nsked by Dr. Hoffman concerning a
diagnosis of black piaguo on board tho
steamship Nippon In this port a few
mouths ago. Dr. Alvarez leplled that
lie had found such a case and as he
answered Dr. Hoffman's Inquiries In
detail it was brought out that tho diag
nosis was very llko tno investigation
held on tho Wing Wo Tal Chinaman.
This was tho first of a number of
utterances by Dr. J. H. Raymond:
Tnerc has been considerable talk
among laymen and It Is high tlmo for
fcclentlfic Investigation. 1 myself do
not wish to bo misunderstood in this
matter and do not want to flguro this was considered an cxcellont man
.. ...I ..!( i, Tinnr,! nf TTnniHi ner of determining disease and had
us lieine acalnst tho Board of Health.
1 have been misquoted by one of tho
afternoon papers, I think It was tho
Star, In Its report of the first meeting
of tne Board of Health. It has been
my belief from tho first that thero was
not sufficient ovldence on which to
base tho bald statement that we had
tho black piaguo here. I did not say
at that first meeting of tho Board of
Health that we did not have tho plague
here, nor havo I said so since. What
1 do say Is that before sending out such
a report the. Board, '.should establish its
position, should prove Its statement by
bacteriological methods. Thero are
many slmnar symptoms, appearances,
results, etc., in cases of ptomaine poi
soning. I do not believe Ujiat it is ac
tually known that we have the plague
here. It cannot be positively known
until It Is proven by the only accepted
1 processes. It has not been proven and
Yl say it was not right for tho Board
... .! n I AlA until It lrnnu.' thnf ihArn
IU UV UO lb .V WM.. . .."vi" uMW .
was such a disease here. Tho Board
should be positive and certain in a
matter of bo much importance. Jump
ing at conclusions Is not scientific and
will not do. Bacteriology Is definite
nnd nbsoluto or it Is not a science. I
would not go so far as to say tnat a
mistake had been mado, but I will say
that It would have been better to have
waited until scientific Investigation
had been made, -no Board acted with
wisdom in adopting quarantine and
other precautionary measures, but its
proclamation to the people here and to
the outside world that Hawaii had the
black plague should hae been with
held till there was proof. It was not
necessary to stop all business. There
could bo no danger In the premises as
tho facts wero known and as thoy are
now known, to allow cabin passengers
to travel and permit the carrlago o.
goods other than Asiatic after fumi
gation. I mean, of course, that a crew
should bo solected carefully and that
there should bo a certainty of having
men who had not been exposed to
whatever disease, might exist. Much
tslckness which shows somo such and I
might say in many essential or promi
nent particulars the exact manifesta
tions of piaguo, hare been brought
here, to my certain knowledge, by sol
diers and more and more of It will very
likely be brought by other soldiers.
Then If a few of them are sick with
theso characteristics, shall it bo pub
lished again to tho world that thero is
more black piaguo In Honolulu. Why,
, that piaguo could be diagnosed by a
glance at micro-organisms from one
or two cases, and without the cultures
having been made, Is certainly most
remarkable. Sternberg, of 'America,
shows us in his latest work 301 bac
teria or bacilli and who can Identify n
stray colony of microbes on tho Instant
In Honolulu. I am strongly inclined
to application safely, entirely, of tho
ptomaine poisoning theory It theories
are to be accepted. Tako tho work of
Victor C. Vaughn, instructor at Ann
Arbor, on ptomaine poisoning. He
says that the fatality varies greatly in
different outbreaks, moving readily be
tween extremes. He says that In, 1820
Klsncr reported thirty-seven deaths In
seventy-six cases and In 1822 reported
eighty-four deaths In 155 cases, over
.fifty per cent.
Dr. itaymonu saiu quite a uit more
strengthening his argument that tho
conclusion .that ptogut existed had
urcu itaunu nun uuuuu iiami,, luut
there was no certainty of tho disease
being hero and that It was not unlikely
thn pnana tlMnrt linri linnn tlfnmfltnn
Dr. Hoffman said that he had little
or nothing to add to tho report ho
mado on Saturday to tho effect that
there wero two cases. "I am perfectly
convinced that these wero cases of
plague," said ho after describing what
Is already known of tho researches.
Ho, was well awaro of tho rcsponusl
bllt'ty ho had assumed and had thought
over It qulto awhile. He had not de
cided hurriedly, having used tho
microscope and passing only on those
cases In which ho had himself held tho
autopsy. His cultures showed the pa
clli. of plague.
Dr. Day said cases like these, with
the marked characteristics evident,
had not been seen beforo by any of tho
doctors on tho autopsies. Thero was
every evidence of plague. For tho
Doard to sit Idly back and wait for a
rat or pig to die would be .nothing less
Dr. Day gavo tho expression that
only a few ptomaine cases wero fatal
ordinarily. Dr. Day addressed the
chair ns "His Honor," having been im
pressed by Dr. Raymond's cross-examination
of Dr. Hoffman. President
Cooper excepted rather sharply to tho
title, saying that he was presiding as
the chief offlcer of the Hawaiian Medi
cal Association, and not as a Judge.
Dr. Day at once "took it back."
Dr. John T. McQrew said he had re
sponded to a call on behalf of tho
Chinaman who had died at the AM
place on Nuuanu street, near Hotel and
who was reported as the second "sus
picious" caso. Ho had failed to ob
serve any Indications of black plague,
but somehow had nol been culled In
when tho postmortem was held. This
was not one of the cases pronounced
Remarks germaln were made by Sur
geon Major Wood, ir. F. R. Day, Dr
Camp, Dr. Scaparone, Dr. Carmlchael,
pr. Sinclair, Dr. Taylor and one or two
others. Dr, Lee, Chinese, described the
first case and his Idea was that tho dU-
caso was plague. It was mentloncd-l
that Dr. Hoffman was n man who had
held or seen 2,500 autopsies and that
been the only means, with symptoms,
of knowing black piaguo till 1894.
A resolution was offered that tho
meeting considered the visitation to
bo plague and endorsed tho campaign
of tho Board of Health. This was
withdrawn at tho Instance of Dr. Wood
nnd others. A resolution by Dr. Myers
lor a committee to Investigate for tho
Association did not como to n vote.
It was figured that two, or not moro
than three of the physicians present
would havo voted that tho visitation
was not plague.
Those who attended the meeting
wero: Presidont C. B. Cooper, Sec
retary C. L. Garvin, Drs. Hodglns, Tay
lor, Burgess, Scaparone, Alvarez, Car
mlchael, Sinclair, Day, Camp Hoffman,
Herbert, McQrew, MaJ. Wood, Myers,
Raymond, Sims, Peterson, Lee, Yulo,
At tho reporters' tablo were repre
sentatives of the Advertiser and Bul
letin and "Dr." Paul Neumann and
Lanz. Here tho main question, as well
as tho previous and subsequent ques
tion was decided by drawing straws
and It was also voted that ono guinea
pig would not make a luau.
Jn one 'report of tho meeting Dr.
Camp Is quoted as giving vlows para-1
llcllng this situation with the cholera
Umo in 1895. It was Dr. O. B. Wood
who advanced this line of argument,
saying that.cholera was diagnosed on
the appearance of tho third caso and
that there wero no more cases for four
or five days. Ho added, llko many
others, that in a matter of this kind It
would not do to wait.
Ono of tho most Interesting things of
the evening was a statement by Dr.
Hoffman, to this effect: The existence
and violent action of the piaguo bacil
lus had been veriflod and fully demon
strated at a laboratory in Vienna.
There the chief experimenter had acci
dentally Inoculated himself and he and
two assistants had died of plague.
There were no other cases. Thero had
not been a case of plague in Germany
for moro than a century. This presen
tation showed certain cases from a
spoclflo causo, showed isolated cases
and a ready arrerst of tho ravages of
tho disease. In its character this
statement fitted well with tho remark
of Dr. C. B. Wood that piaguo had
beon diagnosed in the orient long be
fore tho bacillus was identified.

It Is Nof Evident That All Danger or

There Were Tvo Deaths In Ibe Menagerie on
Sunday - Guinea Pig and a Rat Inestl- 4
gallons -Meeting of the Board.
There were two deaths In,, tho inocu
lated menagerie at tho morgue build
ing on tho courthouse premises early
Sunday morning. Tho guinea pig and
one of the rats succumbed. Said Dr.
Hoffman at noon: "I do not say that
either the guinea pig or rat died of
plague. I did not see enough of them
while they were dying to Judgo to any
degree at all. I am now doing
mortem nnd microscopical work with
them and will soon havo something to
While the bacteriologist and tho re
porter wero chatting a messenger came
In with news that one of tho rats, hav
ing been Isolated and fed on flesh of
tho rat dying Sunday morning, Was a
very sick rat. Dr. Hoffman hastened
to tho cage at onco and his first re
mark was that the rnt seemed to bo en
joying tho most beautiful convulsions.
This was apparently n doomed rat.

VETERANS OF MANY WARS

Williamson Tells How He Handles
H! Cargoes So Well.
Many of the mules brought hero by
the transport Centennial aro veterans
In the scrvlco of tho United States
Army. Thero aro somo that have serv
ed through Indian campaigns, others
that have then through the Spanish
American war In Cuba nnd Porto Rico,
and now tncy nro on their way to
finally complete, their army careers In
tho Philippines. .One old fellow was
nt mo battle of Pine Rldgo In North
Dakota In 1890. ,Thls was the battlo In
which the Sloux chief Sitting Bull was
killed. Another has only ono eye, as
tho result of contact with a bullet nt
Santiago. Many havo scars from
wounds inflicted by Spanish bullets In
All those who hnndle,stock on trans
ports unite In saylng that a horso Is
not In It with n mule as a sailor nnu In
Intelligence. Tho night beforo land
was sighted, the mules In tho Centen
nial scented tho land breeze nnd be
came wildly excited and showed their
nellgnt In various mulish ways, while
tho horses hardly gavo nny Indications
until tho following morning.
Considerable comment has been
mado on the flno condition of tho Cen
tennial stock ns compared with thoso
she brought last time, and thoso that
havo been landed rrom other trans
ports. Dr. Williamson, on being asked
to account fori his success In so suc
cessfully hnndllng his stock said: "I
have made n study of the transporta
tion of mules and horses and find a
certain routine should be rigidly car
ried out every day, and I havo proce
dure of my own. For Instance, at G a.
m. until 4 p. ra. the stock Is fed, water
ed and given medicinal treatment. The
stalls are kept clean continually, and
the man who left a speck In his stall
was compelled to clean It nil over
again, the second time moro thorough
ly than the first.
"Ono thing I never uso except In se
rious cases and that Is the sling. The
use of these nro a general thing I con
sider the worst practlco In tho world
for a horso or a mule, as, the pressure
of tho strops on tho stomach and chest
when the ship Is rolling badly, In nlno
caBes out of ten causes pneumonia or
Inflammation of tho bowels. Another
thing that should bo remedied, nnd
that Is shooing tho stock. The animals
should not havo a shoo on, as In stand
ing In tho stalls they become smooth
nnd pollBhed and when tho ship rolls
It is extremely difficult for the animals
to retain their footing." Tho stock
.-at wns brought by tho Centennial
will contlnuo their Journey to Manila
without shoes nnd thero will bo hut
few that will fall down or lequlre n
sling. Slings and shoes might do for a
snort voyage uut not ror a long ono.
