TOLD OF WANTS
Committees Visit the Settlement for
an Investigation of Conditions
(From Monday's Dally.)
Many were the wants expressed by
the unfortunates at the leper settlement
to the committees of the Legislature
which spent ycsteiday In
I ing the settlement villages. Tho cold
I rain kept many In their homes, but n
large gathering ia.s on hand to meet
Through a committee the lepers asked
for more clothing, more food, everything,
in fact, and not least, for Dr
Goto, the Japanese specialist, who, In
the opinion of many, could effect permanent
As nn Investigation the visit was not
a great success, but It gave nn opportunity
for the Legislators to see the
settlement and come in contact with
the patients, and all expressed satisfaction
with the conditions.
ASHORE IN THE RAIN.
In a driving rnln the Klnnu'e passengers
went nshore at Kalaupapa yes
terday morning at 6:30 o'clock, the first
boat carrying Senator McCandless,
chairman of the Senate Health Committee,
and the press representatives.
Superintendent McVeigh and Deputy
Sheriff Hitchcock received the visitors
there. The Leper Settlement band, led
by Brother Servanus, greeted each boat
load w Ith a burst of music.
Ah the rain began descending In a
torrent Superintendent McVeigh decided
that It would be Impossible to hold
a meeting of the people with the committee
In the stocknd nnd It -was decided
to open Mr. McVeigh's home for
the purposes of the committee. After
everjbody hnd landed nnd first greetings
w to over, a general gathering
took place nt the superintendent's residence.
From there the committee,
headed by Senators McCandless, Rtown
nnd Kalnuokalanl, nnd Representatives
Paele, Vlda and Aylett, went to
the Rlshop Home for girls. In the
school house the girls were assembled.
Tho glee club nnd a pianist gave several
GIRLS WELL FED.
Senator Knlauokalant stated the objects
of the committee's presence. He
nfcked them to answer all questions
freely concerning their trentment nnd
wants, and to mnke whatever suggestions
omirred to them.
Mother Marianne said she would like
more hospital accommodations. The
blind had no suitable residence, nnd
such n place was necessary. All that
she thought was lequlied in the wny
of buildings were a large genet nl hospital
and home for the blind. The
superintendent said he hnd Included in
his estimates to tho Hoard of Health
last November, thirty new buildings,
five of which were for the Rlshop Home
nnd the Governor bad requested appropriations
As far as Mother Mailnnno
knew tho children were nil satisfied.
Ajlett asked Mother Matlnnne
whethei Dr. Goto's medicine wns being
supplied to the children. She teplled In
the negative, adding thnt the supply
had Just run out. Senator Kaiue nnd
others endeavored to show that the disease
had Increased because of tho lnck
of Goto s medicine. Asked ns to a comparison
of Uio cases befoie and after
tho use of Goto's medicine, Mother
Marianne replied thnt the children hnd
grown older nnd nnturnlly the lepiosy
had developed. In tho young the remedy
helped merely ns n cleaning medicine.
Pulna then InterrogaUd tho children
who answered tu chorus that tho
Mother's statements were correct.
AT HOME FOR HOYS.
The rninnilttpn ropiitoii Vinrsoa nnd
lode to Kalawao and tho Haldwlnj
Homo for Roys. They weio cordially
greeted by Rrother Dutton, whose
In behalf of the lepers has
become o widely known. After being
shown through IiIh quarters the guests
went to tho school house where tho
boys' band played several selections.
Tho boys were assembled by Rcother
Dutton and were told by Senator
of the objects of the Malt.
Prince Kuhlo was Introduced to the
boys nnd received nn ovation.
asked for complaints, If any,
ns to flour, meats, and all food stuffs,
Several members began pilvnte Investigations
and camo to the conclusion
that one or two boys were not lepers.
Rrother Dutton had no epeclnl recommendation.
There were some lm
I provemehts needed for the Home especially
In the matter of sewerage

when this could best be done by the
government. No buildings were needed.
Ample food wns supplied by the

not by ration measure, but by
m on the llrst of every month. Everything
asked for wns given. There
w is plenty of clothing. Goods In bulk

As to nn effort to cure leprosy,
llrothpr Dutton said there was no
system adopted for cure, except
tue use of the Goto medicines for b

extent stayed the ravages of the

"Have you had good results from the
use of the Goto medicine?"
"Well, while It was continued it was
a good cleanser and served to i heck
ripld development. I don't regard it as
a cure for leprosy, however."
During this Investigation by Senator
McCandless the remaining Senators
paid no attention to tho remarks, hut
worked up "cases" that they did not
consider were lepers.
Prince Kuhlo asked several questions,
among them If the Brother
thought 'there were cases that should
be sent to Honolulu for re-examination.
Rut Brother Dutton said no.
Kaniho was told by the boys they got
good food, that they did not receive
treatment and that they wanted
Goto's medicines. John Ahua, nn
nwa drinker, was the kicker, he objecting
to having pol pounded by boys
ns he wanted kokuns to dq It, also
wanted clean casks. He hnd never
tried Goto's remedies but a friend said
they had not helped him. Ahua wanted
pol twice n dny. As he Is sixty
years old he can leave the Home w hen-over
Senator McCandless asked Ahua If he
did not think his statements were nn
Injustice to the Brothers who were
doing so much for his fellow-unfortunates.
Ahua answered doggedly that
he wanted to mnke the statements to
show what was going on. Brother Dutton
stated that those who were sick
were fed on "saloon" bread and not
the hard bread. Brother Dutton said
Ahua would rather talk than work.
Mnkalmoku, who has been at the settlement
since November last, abused
the Bontd of Health, saying he had
never had medlcnl treatment, thnt tho
food was bad, the pol poor and everything
wrong. He nlso talked of working
without receiving pay.
Brother Dutton said the doctor treated
the patients for fevers nnd other
minor ailments, not for leprosy.
BAND PLAYS FOR PATIENTS.
The committee thanked Brother Dutton
nnd tho Catholic Brothers for their
hospitality, and the return by horseback
to Kalaupapa was made In a
cold, driving rnln which thoroughly
soaked the already drenched riders.
At the residence of Superintendent Mc
Veigh nil tho Klnau guests were given
a luncheon, tables being set w Uhln the
house while luau tables were sprend In
tho grounds, where the band nnd others
feasted. During the noon hour tho
bnnd played several selections, nnd In
tho forenoon visited the Bishop Homo
for Girls where most of the population
gathered to hear the band, the
receiving much npplnuse.
Dr. Cooper, president of the Bonrd
of Health, Joined the committee at
Superintendent McVeigh's residence,
and the entire delegation went to
Hall where the lepers gathered In
lnrge numbers, despite the terrific rnln.
Senntor Kalnuokalanl called attention
to the purpose of the committee In
before the people. The committee
tv ns ready to listen to suggestions
and recommendations, but not
trivial matters. The committee wanted
facts. Senator Knlauokalanl said that
he had heard nothing but praise for
Senntor Cecil Brown spoke In a similar
vein. W. O. Smith spoke of lila
work In Washington against the proposition
lo put the Leper Settlement under
Prince Kuhlo addressed the people
saying he would lend his efforts to
preventing the settlement from passing
Into the control of the Federal government.
The manner In which they were
now treated showed they were living In:
a Paradise compared to what other
people were subjected to under similar
circumstances. As to the cure of leprosy,
the Prince said that the most
eminent physicians in foreign countries
were studying the disease and as yet
hnd not discovered Its cure. He said he
was In favor of having physicians come
here especially to study leprosy.
WANTS OF LEPERS.
A petition asking for a raise of the
clothing money from $10 to jifi per annum
was presented. Senator McCand
less asked the chairman for other statements.
They said that twenty-one
pounds of palnl for a ration was
for a week's meal. The
chairman for the lepers said seven
pounds of meat wns Insufficient and he
considered 10 pounds about right. Sena
tor McCandless sold that the pnlal ration
was to be raised to
pounds. The chairman said also that
the people were all of the opinion that
the children over five years of age
should receive the same ration as the
older people. The chairman, in fact,
found that everything in the food supply
was "insufficient." Then the lepers
asked for mutton twice a month, a
quarter of a cord of wood a month,
more of Dr. Goto's medicine, another
physician In place of Dr. Goodhue, a
rule permitting the lepers to raise taro
with the privilege of selling it to the
settlement at the same prices the outside
contractors are now receiving. A
school houso was also asked for Kalawao.
WANT DR. GOTO.
The chairman then called nttentlon
to rumors that Dr. Goto had cured
many people and he wanted the government
to have him sent to the set
tlement. When asked whether they believed
in Goto they replied In loud
chorus, "Yes." One man, Kenloha,
arose and said he had been cured, and
had remained cured for nine years.
He said he was a very bad case when
Goto took him. Others rose with testimony
of cures, until more than a
dozen had told of "cures," which secured
only retarding of disease.
All the lepers seemed to place absolute
trust in Dr. Goto and wanted the
Legislature to send for him. Nathaniel
said there was a division of sentiment,
some wanted Goto and others a white
AMBROSE HUTCHINSON TALKS.
Ambrose Hutchinson said the settlement
was poorly equipped for the
of leprosy. There were no steam
baths, hot baths, or well-equipped hospitals.
He was opposed to Dr. Goto,
nnd said he was unable to treat the
disease. He called him a quack and
said that Dr. Goodhue was the worst
he had seen In 24 years.
Tom Nathaniel arose and excitedly
opposed many of Hutchinson's statements.
He did not want to ask for
hospitals, which would not be built for
j ears, and he wanted a physician at
once w ho could begin to effect the cure
of their affliction.
It was a strange scene In this little
recreation hall when the lepers laid
bare the anguish of their souls to the
committee. In the main part of the
hall the lepers, men and women, sat
in row s upon benches, the most outcast
of the world's diseased nnd afflicted
ones. A fence seperated the lepers
fiom the committee and all those who
come from Honolulu, who sat upon
chairs and benches. One by one the
crippled pleaders came to the bar,
showing their grief In their seamed
faces as they told of their wants. The
conference ended In a general interchange
FAREWELLS AT KALAUPAPA,
Shortly after 5 o'clock Senator Mc
Candless gave the order to go aboard
the ship. The government band, which
had played during the afternoon at the
hospltnl, rendered several selections on
the landing, where most of the lepers
congregated. A quintette stood on the
shore nnd sang farewells.
At 5:45 p. m. the anchor was hoisted,
and the vessel came Into Honolulu
harbor at 11:30 o'clock.

"I wanted to explain to the Legislature
yesterday why I had changed my
vote on the County bill In the House,"
said Representative areenwell, of Ko-na,
yesterday. "The reason are simple
enough. I am not opposed to the County
bill, as such. I voted as I did In
Justice to my people.
"In the bill as it came down from
the Senate the island of Hawaii was
divided into the two counties of East
Hawaii and West Hawaii. In the county
of West Hawaii, originally, were Included
tho districts of North Kohala,
South Kohala, North and South Kona,
and Kau. The district of Hnmakua
was included In the county of East
Hawaii, Tho House committee has
changed this, putting the district of
Hamakua In West Hawaii, Instead of
Kau, and making Walmea the county
"Now, In my opinion, Walmea Is the
most undesirable place possible for a
county seat. The county seat of that
county should have been In Kona."
