Honorable John C. Lano, Honolulu,
Dear Sir: I am very much grati
fied to recehe your letter of tho 12th
Instant In regard to tho newly adopted
policy concerning leprosy. I am very
glad to know that this commends It
self to your Judgment nnd Is In har
mony with tho views that you have
ong entertained. It Is a Biuilect to
which several of us in tho Executive
department hnvo given conslderablo
thought ror somo months past ana wo
feel confident that no mistake has
been mailo In entering upon tho now
policy. Wo regret that wo nro not in
r. position at present to do very much
towards currying It out, but wo trust
that tho Legislature at its next session
will glvo us tho necessary support and
means. Ily cooperation along rational
lines, there would seem to bo no rea
son why wo cannot get ahead of tho
disease and begin to realize the good
effects of tho no wpollcy In a compar
atively short time.
Thanking you fur your kind wishes,
Very Blncerly yours.

Stewart Talt was last evening taken
oft the transport Sheridan, on which
ho hud stowed iwny, and placed under
arrest for aliened embezzlement of .1
diamond stud, ilalmcd (o bu tho piop
erty of William Jack.
Tho affair eame up In court nt 2
o'clock this afternoon, it nppimrs tu
be much mixed up. Talt status that
tho ring wan sold him, and n local
man, acting for William Jne't, states
that tho ring wns given aj secjilty on
a loan of $50 which Tall inr.d'j to Jack.
Jack Is the man who had a fist fight
with Captain Itedfern of tho yacht
Gwondolyn at llllo, nnd came to this
city on his way back to tho Coast. Ho
was broke, and t.o secured tho money
hero for n steerage pnssago homo.
Talt told his version of tho transac
tion this morning. "William Jack
camo to a fellow I know and tried to
sell tho stone. Tho man didn't know
anything about stones, so ho told Jack
to wait and sec mo, ns I might do
something about It. I camo In pres
ently. It wns the first tlmo I ever
saw this man Jack, ,11c said ho want
ed to sell tho Ktono In order to get
passage money home. I told him that
might tako It If It camo nt a bar
gain. Ho nBkcd, 'How would ?50
"I thought this was about right. It
was n straight sale.
"I was going out to Manila with my
baggago. I had had It packed for
tomo time,' but did not know Just
when I would leave. Of course. I had
no right on tho transport, but I know
ever) body on theso boats, and wanted
to save u few bucks tu getting to Ma
nila." Ho had an auptflntmcnt with Jack's
representative ii'sterduy afternoon.
und says he kept It, but tho other
failed to show up on time.
It appears that tho vesting ot pow
ers of attorney In another by Jack
was by advice from tho outside.
