PETITION OF LEPERS
Partial Self Government Meets With
Favor of the Members of the
Board Another Meet
The meeting of the Hoard of Health
jestrt!ny was attended by tho mom
bcrs of the Health committees of both
the Hruso nnd the Senate. The matter
considered nt the conference was tho
petlMon from the residents of tin
leper settlement at Molokal.
The Senators present were Knnuha,
Kanhl, Nnkapaolm, Dililnln, Kaliie.
Kahuokalanl nnd Russell The com.
mttteo from tho House consisted of
rtecklcy Ollntlan, Knnlho, Hanheo nnd
Euallko The petition was considered
section 1) section, In tho follow Idr or
1. That the local management of tha
settlement bo Kten n law to bo enacted
thersfor to the persons segregated
Senator Baldwin read the section nnd
nsked the members of the Board of
Health for their opinions.
Mr. Lowrcy considered that self
government nt the settlement was un
desirable, on tho ground that the lepers
themselves would not be satisfied under
Dr. Emerson said that when the sst'
tlcmcnt was first established, self gov
eminent was Instituted and that it re
suited in confusion. Ho spoke of tho
difficulties tho settlement would hao
In raising money and administering tho
nuances Ho said the members of tho
Fcttlemcut were regarded as tho wards
of tho gocrnment nnd wero prnctt
cully the samo as tho Inmates of n lios
Attorney Oeneral Dolo said It would
be a good deal like giving self govern
ment to a hospltnl and that sick peo
ple must line good senso to tako cars
Winston thought that In some mat
tcrs, tho Inmates might govern them
selves. Hut In others trained nnd ca
pablo men were needed. However, It
might bo possible to find such persons
at tho settlement.
Dr. C. II. Cooper said, "I do not bo
llcc rclf government could be success
fully carried on; but I endorse their
hiving representation, say on a board
of five. The settlement might be al
lowed two members who could be
choa.!n by ballot from among their
In the nbsenco of President Ray
mond, Dr. Pratt, as proxy gave his
view.. Dr Raymond favors tho man
agement of the settlement by a com
mission of three or five. Of three, the
peoplo of tho settlement to chooso ono,
the Hoard another nnd those two. a
third He would hnve a superintendent
of financial matters hire who would be
required to make bi-monthly trips to
the settlement Ho would Institute tho
prlncli le of nrbltrntlon.
At'orney Oeneral Dole remarked, "1
believe Dr. Raymond's ideas would
provo practicable "
2. That a liberal appropriation bo
made to Increase the water supply of
Senator Ilaldvvln said that ho wanted
Information on the water system and
whether It was adequate to furnish Ir
rigation for taro patches.
S u lit. Reynolds said tho supply of
water was now twice as largo as tho
consumption, but tho surplus would not
bo niliquato to support new taro fields
of Important extent.
3 that a steam vessel bo purchased
for tho Hoard of Health to bo used for
tho tiansportatlon of fi eight from tho
other islands to tho settlement
Tho members of the Board of Health
favofd tho purchase of a steimbott
nnd the members of tho tommltteo
seemed to concur.
Another petition was then taken up
In tho same manner
1 That the Ilnird of Health be pio
hlblted from ilalmlng any tliare In tho
taio produced by tho farmtrs of W11I
kolu. Supt. Re nolds explained that the
valloy of Wnlkohi was onco used for
grazing stock, bilonglng to tho llo-ird.
When taro planting was taken up, the
Board fenced each patch und found af
ter It lot, that to reserve one-fourth of
the crop was In tho Intel est of the (set
tlement Ho gave, a list of seventeen
taro 1 lanters.
2. 'I hat tho Board of Health bo
made to pn tho carriage of freight for
the If It ih suit from all the Islands of

average 20 per week, except In holi
day times when tho number is perhaps
Bfty, Tlje Hoard sends these packages
freo whether the size of a collar box
nr a dray load of lumber. It was
thought Impracticable to extend this
free delivery to other Islands.
3. That the Board of Health paint
and whitewash alt the buildings oc
cupied by the lnpers. .
Sup Reynolds explained that all
buildings occupied by women or men
unable to work are now whitewashed
by the Board of Health. It seemed to
be the sense of all present that a. spray
ing machine should bo bought nnd tho
Board should do the whitewashing for
4. That the children horn of leprous
women ho given full food nnd fish al
lowance, as well as wearing supplies
not to exceed the value of ten dollars a
All children that are lepers now re
ceive full food nllowance. To dis
courage tho retention at tho settle
ment of non-leprous persons, such
children as nre clean, nro nil owed only
one-half rations. The members of the
Donrl stated they were not willing to
do an thing that would encourage non
lepers to remain at tho settlement.
t. That tho cloth allowance of tho
value of ten dollars be made In coin.
Neither members of the Board or of
the committees were In favor of grant
ing this request.
C. That tho Minister of the Interior,
with the approval of the Board of
HeaPh. permit tho erection of stores
other than that of the Board of Health.
Senator Baldwin said that great com
plaint had been mado against the
Board of Health store. Ho said that
It w.u claimed by tho lepers that the
stock was often short nnd that It con
sisted of goods of inferior quality.
It vas explained by the members of
the Board of Health that the store
now sells goods nt cost.
Senator Russell said he has Informa
tion that the Board of Health pays CO
per cent more for goods than is paid by
As to the sale of goods at cost Sen
ator Kalauokalanl said that ho priced
a tin pan and found It to bo Ave cents
hlghr than the same article was sold
for In other places, and that shoes sell
ing in Honolulu for $1.25 sold over
there for $1.33.
In reply to questions, Supt. Rej nolds
Mated that coffee shops are permitted
by the Board and thnt the number Is
limited to three.
Senator Baldwin nsked If anybody
wanted to put up a Btore. would tho
Board stop It?
"Nj such nctlon has jet been asked
for." lr piled Mr. Lowrey.
Senctor Baldwin then nsked If the
Board of Health would object.
Mr. Lowrey replied that the question
could not bo answered off hand The
question of freights would hnvo to be
considered. Tho prlvato stores might
want tho Board to pay tho freight on
all goods they sold.
7. That the letters of the lepers be
mailed free of postage.
This wns referred to tho Postmaster
Oeneral nt Washington.
8. Thnt each leper bo given onco a
month one-quarter of a cord of wood
The members of the Board said that
wood would bo furnished as requested
If n mi (Helen t appropriation wero made
by tha Legislature.
9. That tho Importation of nwa Into
tho rittlement be permitted, but not
to exceed two stumps at ench sending.
Supt. Reynolds stated that nt pres
ent two hunches of nwa per week wero
now allowed for each Individual want
ing It, when sent by friends. No ex
pression was definitely mado on this
10 Thnt the Board of Health bo
mado to pay the expenses of digging
the graves of deceased lepers.
The present policy Is to dig graves
for thoso too poor to have It done for
themselves. On referring to tho
records it was found that 218 deaths
had occurred during tho past year. It
costs $2 to dig a grave. No objection
was mado to tho Board paying for
grave digging for all who die.
Sections 11, 12 and 13 were omitted
and considerable discussion devoted to
14. That n law bo enncted providing
for tho examination of the clean lepers
Mr. Reynolds stnted that thoso who
wished It were always examined by tho
Boar! of Health when It visited tbo
settlement. Ho nlso stated that per
sons ordered to present themselves for
such examination often disappeared
when tho tlino came. In leply to a
question from Beckley. Mr. Reynolds
said the matter was left largely to tbo
volition of tho people concerned.
Senator Bildwln read the names of
ten Inmates who claimed they wero
clean and wanted to get away from tho
place. Members of tho Hoard wanted
to know If resident physician Dr. Oli
ver 1 ad passed upon tho cases.
Mr. Lowrey said that tho Board does
not wish to keep any ono nt tho settle
ment who Is not u leper.
At this point n lengthy discussion
took placo between Senator Knnuha
and Dr Emerson upon tho peilodlclty
of lepiosy It wus In tho nnturo of a
cross-ixnmlnntlon of nn expert witness
Knnuha wanted to lyiovv If non-lepers
wero allowed to live togithei with
' Of lourse they nre," said Dr Emer
son "It could not bo any other way.
There would bo all kinds of coinpllca
tlonB If It wero otherwlso" Kimulia
claimed there should be a placo for tho
segregation of ncm-lepers Dr Emer
son said such a place was not fensiblo
as these could not be persuaded to go
to such a place.
In reply to a question from Senator
Kaohl, Dr. Emerson said that Dr. Oli
ver was making no systematic treat
ment of leprosy at the settlement be
cause the temperament of the peoplo
noull not stand tho discipline of a,
course of treatment.
Senator Baldwin then brought up tho
question of food supply. He said that
tho peoplo of the settlement wanted
weekly latlons of 25 Instead of 21
pounds of pol . They also wanted bet
ter Rour nnd salmon. The Senator
asked It mutton could not be furnished
for a change. It was also represented
that the cattle for the settlement, were
kept In close pens for a month up to
their bellies In mini. Senator Baldwin
characterized this as cruelty to animals
Mr. Reynolds said that cattle were
shipped twice a month hence were not
abused as stnted. He said too that
mutton had been tried but that the na
tives do not like It. A shipment ot Chi
cago canned beef had arrived which
was giving satisfaction.
Beckley brought up tho case of Ella
Bridges, who has been nt the settle
ment ten years and who Is now con
sidered a suspect by three physicians
and a non-leper by two. He asked If
there were any other cases If similar
Senator Kanuha then presented
Houso bill No. 29 and Senato bill No.

meeting with the Board, Friday even
