Monday," began Sheldon, "he- re-1
eclved us Mndly. There wero about
four hundred of us In that later

and shook hands with us. I am nulla
certain that Governor I'rear has In
his heart lovo for tho Hawallans.
Through his good judgment I am cci
tnln that tho Interest of our suffer

"Tho trouble with I'lnkham wus
that hcwlmply dumped tho lepers In
tho settlement without making an ef
fort to euro them. With Dr. Cofer,
our now President, who Is hlm&clf
n phjslclnn of rare qualifications and
attainments, I nm certain that our
unfortunates in tho settlement will
rccelo proper care."
rrcu. nechicy, who presided over
tho meeting, waB enthusiastic over
tho appointment of Dr. Cofer as
Prcsldont of tho Hoard of Health,
and in his speech ho complimented
Governor l'rcar on tho Independent
stand he lins taken In tho appoint
ment of tho President of tho Hoard,
in spite of the backing nnd endorse
ment of the commercial bodies.
"Tho present President of tho
Hoard of Health," Bald Hockley, "la

any other icmedlcs, so long as they
aro offectlvo. Dr. Cofer enjoys tho

with us hero. Ho Is kind nnd Is
willing to listen to what tho poor
ones liavo to say. ills appointment
nB tho l'icsldcnt of tho Hoard of
Health shows clearly that our new
Governor knew what ho was doing.
Our business men cannot now expect
as much out of tho now President of
1I10 Hoard as they used to enjoy when
Plnliham was there Cofer is a phy
sician and will no doubt ino his best
cffoits to relieve tho suffering of our
poor unfortunates In the settlement.
Plnliham failed to prove himself wor
thy of our consideration, slnco ho did
not carry out tho intention of tho
last Legislature with regard to tho
appropriations. Somo politicians aro
commencing to say that wo as Ha
walians will experience, hardship on
account of tho appointment of Dr.
Cofer as tho President of tho Hoard
They say that Cofer h a 1'edoral of
ficial and will make trouble with tho
Inmates If opportunity presents it
feolf. Such talk Is nonsensical."
Pinkham Was All Right
Mrs. Nawalii wus Introduced as
tho mother of tho Hawallans. Sho
said sho had not come to mnko a

Win. Olcpuu, a well-known politi

praising Governor Krear for his kind
ly reception of the committee which
waited on him Ha said: "When
wo waited upon him last Monday

clothes, Just as wo had b'cen able to
go, ho recehed each ono of us kind
ly, listened to what wo had to say
nnd promised us thnt what he would
do would bo In his opinion what was
tho very beta for us, How' different
Is tho Governor, our chief now, to
our old chiefs Wlion wo went to
ask them for anything our people
had to put on their very best clothes
nnd then' crawl on their hands nnd
knees. And even then perhaps they
would not bo listened to. Governor
Krear loves the Hnwnilan people and
will not do anj thing to hurt us. Wo
must trust the man ho has put nt the
head of tho Hoard of Health, for ho
would not bo put thero if our Gover
nor did not know that ho could bo
trusted to do what was best for tho
Hawallans, Tho new President Is a
good man and wo will seo Ills good
work pretty soon."
