Prince Cupid raid that he did not
think It would make very much difference,
as everywhere, according to
his expsrlence, Molokal was Hpoken of
us a leper settlement. The fact is, he
said, that tht.re would be no greater advertisement
of the fact of the presence
of leprosy with the making of the reservation
national than there Is now.
General J. F. Boper said that he was
utterly opposed to the Idea, as It would
simply give to the world one thought
which ever would be connected Willi
Hawaii that It was a lazaretto. This
would damage the country veiy much
nnd would be well nigh fatal to the,
chances of the building up of a great
tourist rade. He considered the fact
that such a bill was Introduced as n
great misfortune, and the people should
see to It that It never passed.
Edmund Norrle, of the Independent,
f.ild: "This hns been tried before,
and hns always failed. It should fail
now. It would be ruin to the country
to have It spread about that the lepjis
of a nation were gathered In It. There
would be a complete Identification of
Hawaii with the disease, and people
would stay away, for the mason that
they would get the Idea that there
was a perpetual epidemic. We know
that the disease Is not nn epidemic,
but the general public does not know
this, and will Bhun the Islands so thnt
they may keep as far apart as thoy
con. It would be a disaster should
such a bill become law.
Hon. J, A. McCandlcss said that he
never before hod thought there were
two opinions as to the necessity for the
keeping of the lepers of this Territory
npart from those of other lands, nnd
In a safe and comfortable place. He
said the people now at the seettlement
undoubtedly were carefully attended,
well cared for and fed ns well us they

people of the Territory to protect Its

opinion there would be great damage :

was one which should not have been
mentioned by any Hawaiian.
From those who have to do with the

to the establishment of a national reservation
at Molokal as proposed ty
Delegate Wilcox, Is even more bitter
than by laymen who have had little
acquaintance with the disease,
nnd look upon the matter only from a
commercial standpoint. The Hawaii ins
ore also against the wild scheme of
Wilcox, and are beginning to wonder

Those members of the Hoard of
Health who were willing to discuss 'l.e
matter at all. were much opposed to
any national interference with a
Territorial affair, and every member'cf
the board who was questioned yesterday
took a stand in opposition to the
legislation proposed by Wilcox.
Superintendent Reynolds, who Is in
charge of the Molokal settlement nnd
who has been more or less Intimately
connected with the care of leprosy fur
twenty years, chaiacterlzed the bill ns
"It's abominable," he paid yesterday.
"What does he mean, anyway, by such
a jv.easure. It would simply make tho
Hawaiian Islands n dumping ground
for lepers from everywhere. As It Is
now Hawaii has a bad enough name because
of the settlement, but this would
make It ten times worse. Even In Honolulu
the people believe that tho whole
Island of Molokal Is given over to the
lepers, when In truth they have but n
very small portion. It would be the
same way if this bill passes with the
people In the United States: they would
think that the entire Island group Is
given over to lepers. Our people now
nrc as contented over there ns It Is possible
to be under the circumstances, nnd
bring a lot of lepers of other nationalities
here would cause lots of trouble,
and disturbance. "For that matter
from reporti I have heard I believe
some of the States have Just as many
lepers as we have. Ther.e are loss than
thousand now, and some of the States
are said to have that many. A tract
should bo set apart In each State lar
their segregation, and Hn wall not tniJr
the dumping ground for all the State.". '

Home Rulers Not
OJin RULERS discussed Chinese
exclusion last evening, taking
much time and engendering
more warm feeling. There were many
speeches, some 'hot air, and finally,
when the tension became so strong that
the name of Delegate Wilcox was being
used rather too freely to please Mrs.
Wilcox, she rose, and in accents which
showed some degree of warmth, 'defended
her absent spouse t osuch effect
thnt the subject was dropped.
The discussion came up over the re
ceipt of the acknowledgment of the
receipt of the resolutions adopted at
the Drlllshed meeting In farewell of
Wilcox, which declared In favor ot the
exclusion of Chinese. The question
which arose was whether or not the
resolution was In reality a Home Rule
pioductton, or whether It was not from
an outsider, foisted upon the meeting
and thus committing the party to the
declarations. Prince Cupid threw the
bomb, and earnestly wanted to find the
man who had written the resolution,
Tho prince declared that he did not
believe that there was nny unanimity
In the opposition of the Home Rulers
to exclusion. He declared that he was
not on excluslonlst, hut that he favored
restriction. He said he was In favor
of everything that would bo of benefit
t the Industries of the Islands. In hla
opinion there could be be brought here
a number of Chinese who could be
Imported only for field work, nnd who
could be deported ns soon as they
.showed an Inclination to get Into other
Hues, such as would make them competitors
with any white man or Hawaiian.
Several speakers went Into the matter,
citing the present competition of
the Orientals with the natives as
ns fishermen and as longshoremen,
and the final touch was given
to the matter when John Cmmeluth In
a long speech declared against the
Orientals, and said that Wilcox was
In favor of the resolution hs passed.
This aroused Mrs. Wilcox, aiid she replied
vigorously, saying that the delegate
was always In favor not of
but of restriction of tho immigra
tion of tho Orientals. This closed the .
Early In the meeting the committee
which has in hand the preparations
for the mass meeting on Saturday ,
evening of next week, reported I
ress. The committee a report waa received
and the prcpirntlons will proceed
along the lines which have bi'cn
cFtabllshed for the githerlng. Invitations
have been sent out to all the
the local courts, to the Territorial
and United States ofllc'nlp, and
to mnny prominent men of all shadej
of political faith, nuking them to bj
present nnd address the meeting. As
yet no ncceptarces have been received.
The same invitation went to every
member of the Legislature. In addition
there will be n special form ot
Invitation to be present sent to tha
prominent men of the city, so as to Insure
a gathcilng of size nnd Importance.
The committee which has the meeting
in chnrge is now engaged in getting
rendy for it a series of resolutions
which will simply give expression to
the sentiments of the letter of Invitation.
This, It Is Intended, will do away
