.HAWAIIAN GAZETTE, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27. 1018. SEMI-VVEEKT.Y.
BY PAXSON, SAYS
Complaints made by Mr. Walter 'T.
M.iirfurlnnc of condition!! at the Kallhl
r ' ' "jur station were justified and
have been remedied, state President
1'nxsun of the board of health, who ask
whnt mure ran be done by him' or by'
the board. Ho has discharged L Ka ne,
the caretaker of the station, and the
assistant cnretnker and hag taken other
steps to improve discipline and care
fulness about the station. 5
Mrs. Mtiefnrlano, whose letter In Tha
Advertiser yesterday morning railing at
tention to what she claim arc flagrant
abuses tit tho receiving station attracts
wide attention, declares that President
1'nxion has not helped remedy the real
situntion by discharging the caretaker,
but lias only made it more difficult to
net the truth of the situation out into
the open where it can ba viewed and
the necessary corrections brought about.
Hhe hiivs that Mr. Paxson hag "double
crossed" her in discharging these men
ninl has now denied her the opportunity
of appearing at a special meeting of
the board of health which he, himself,
suggested should be called in order that
idie might nppenr before it.
There nre conditions infinitely worae
tli 11 ii have been so fur exuoaed that de
mand investigation, according to the in
formation in her hands, she says. Theae
conditions, if her information be cor
rect, ate such as will shock the moral
sense of the community. If things are
us she believes she is prepared to prove,
the health of the community has been
endangered for the most iou of rea
sons. She demands nn inv 'igation by
the proper authorities.
Among other 'charge which Mr.
Macfarlane is prepared to make, and
not one of the mora serious charges, ia
that babies born at the settlement on
Mnlokai ure being brought to Hono
lulu by relatives and are not taken to
the proper government homes but are
taken directly into the homes of rela
tives, where no supervision whatever
over the children is exercised. No
care is taken to see whether or not
these children develop the disease that
afflicts the mothers, and no protection
is afforded the neighborhood into which
these children lire taken.
Worse Than Belgium
"I do not intend to permit this mat
ter to be lightly dismissed," said Mts.
M ad n i In no last night. I have no fight
tu make upon Mr. l'nxsnn, even though
he did w rite to the (iovernor and say
that all my charges were without justi
fication, the very same charge that ho
now says are justified. I have no fight
to make upon the board of health. I
have a fight to make against condi
tions that are worse thun the condi
tions the ILunss have brought to Bel
gium, things that are horrible, things
that add to the sorrows of tho people
ct the sett lenient and things that are
helping prevent the stamping out of
leprosy in these Islands wo love. I
have befit told things by weeping moth
ers that make many of the reports from
I'.elginm seem tame. I want a chance
to either prove or disprove these, and
1 i nt end t o get it . "
Offclals Admit Truth
Charges made by Mrs. Macfarlane re
gunling the conduct of the Kalihi lever
receiving station arc admitted as being
true bv both Sumner H. Pnxson, presi
dent of the boa id of health, and by
.1 IV M'Voigh. superintendent of the
K .- I -l 1 1 1 m i :i sett li-riient.
'II I.v point upon which there is
a ipiest ion of facts contained ill her
charges is as in where the pigs came
tr.'tit . Iii. li she says were sold by
K.i ni'. the Kalihi settlement keeper.
Moth I'axs. ri and McVeigh say that in
vestigations made by them indicate that
tin (inly pigs sold by Kane came from
ji pi.; rtiiirh in which he is interested
wiili a .In pn nose. This is not located
nt the Kalihi settlement, but nearby.
In effect, if not in so uiany words,
President Pnxson says:
" Mi. M in fa r lane 's charges were in
vestigated. As a whole they were found
t Ka ne way informed that he was
to be dismissed at the end of this
mouth. What else call Mrs. Macfar
lane want an I what else can the board
of health do?"
He showcl surprise when informed
that Mrs. Macfarlane thinks he got rid
of Ka ne so the Kalihi keeper would
not have to answer ipiestions at a pub
lic hearing which she demanded. The
I nn i "1 of health president says the only
agreement he had about a public hear
ing with Mrs. Macfarlane was that she
would be permitted, if she liked, to
ask ipiestioiis of both Ka ne and Mc
Veigh at the next meeting of the board.
K ne Th Fired
"Her complaints were regarding
segregation at the Kalihi station. In
vestigation of the complaints satisfied
nie that in the major part they were
justified. As a result Ka ne was noti
fied his sei v ii ii w ere to be dispensed
with nt the end of this month," ho
Ml V s.
Pi esidcnt Pnxson was told that there
weie oiIki c o in p la i ii I s that the Kalihi
Malion was conducted as a jail, instead
of as a hospital. The basis of this
complaint was that the patients were
for. cil to subsist on the same ration
ii 1 1 . t that special diets could not be
cured for patients, even when ordered
bv a phvsician.
To the complaint regarding the sup
plying of the special diets. President
Pnxson i. plied:
"Thee is a board of health order
that s i( iul diets shall be provided to
pa ' ie ut s w hen ordered by a physician."

Dr. Holliiian explains tliut in view
of the fart that be is still "the com

he until Novembex I, he did not feel
justified in discussing the revelations
made about the station. Bowever, he
did say that due to the dual contort of
the station, that of the territory aad
the federal government, "it should be
apparent there i room for friction."
Preaident Paxton says that Ka-ne, up
on investigation, waa found to be guilty
of negligence and "failing tq obey or
der. " This failure to obey order con
sisted, in at least one instance, in the
station superintendent eating at the
same table with the patient. The neg
ligence charge is justified, according to
bis point of view, by the f)t that the
Station keeper permitted money to pas
between the drivers of delivery wagons
and the patients.
Trouble arose at the station ten or
twelve years ago because drivers got
into the habit of taking orders and
money from the patients, says Superin
tendent l&Veigh. He says he intends
to stop it this time by the order which
has been issued by him prohibiting the
delivery wagons from entering the sta
(Superintendent McVeigh say his in
vestigation of the charge that Ka ne
sold pigs from the station pen made
him think it was not well founded. He
reached this opinion after questioning
some of the patients. He Intends to
continue the investigation along the
same lines, but is inclined to the belief
that it is not likely Ka ne would have
taken the chance of discovery by "tak

The pigs at the Kalihi station are
neither the. property of the station or
the territory, but some he gave to the
patient, "so they would have some
fresh pork occasionally," McVeigh says.
Eeplles To Paxson
The following letter has been ad
dressed to The Advertiser by Mrs. Mac
farlane in which she defines her posi
Editor The Advertiser: According
to Mr. Paxson's way of looking at it,
the attack I made on the Board of
Health through your paper yesterday
morning, is not good promotion work.
The Islands are termed and known all
over the world as the Paradise of the
Pacific, but I ask you can it be under
If the Islands are to be known as
a Paradise, let us universally make
them such. From the north to the
south, from the east to the west, it is
known that leprosy is in the Islands
and that a place of segregation for

Shortly after Mr. Paxson took office
as president of the territorial board
of health, I filed some complaints, not
only against the keeper, assistant
keeper and watchman, but against the
boqrd of health as well, for not in
vestigating from time to time to see
if the. rules of the board were being
carried out. Not hearing from the
board as to weather my complaints
were taken up, I took the matter to
the Governor and he was most cour
teous and prompt In lnvestigaitng.
Paxson's First Stand
The complaints were filed by the
(iovernor on August 20, the day after
my visit and on August 24, Mr. Pax
son, as president, of the board, wrote
the liovernor saying "after iuvestiga
tiou, I find that the complaints are
not justified." He further mentions
that the patients have enjoyed the
privilege of providing themselves with
such extra in the way of food as they
felt they could afford. The markets
deliver their orders ami receive the
money for same only after it has been
disinfected. Is it according to the
rules of ordinary precautious to give
to the patients money that has been
disinfected with the understanding that
it ceases ever to be subjected to con
tamination after being once disinfect
On the 13th of September 1 called
at the board of health and asked Mr.
I'axson and Mr. Porter when the next
board of health meeting was to be
held and was informed that a meet
ing hail been held the'day before, and
that the next would be held on the
second Thursday in October. We look
ed it up and found it would be on the
1 Oth. I then requested Mr. Paxson to
permit me to coma and ask questions
at the meeting, giving him a few
more complaints. I told him I would
like to have the keeper, aasistant
keeper, watchman, and Mr. McVeigh
present so I could ask the questions and
get direct answers.
I 8 till Watting
Mr. Paxson told me Mr. McVeigh
was .coming down soon and would uot,
he thought, be able to stay till the
10th of October, but suggested a spe
elal meeting while Mr. McVeigh was
here, which was more than obliging
on Mr. Paxson's part. 1 have wuit
ed ever siuce for the notification of
the date of this meeting.
Iay before yesterday, (September 2.1,
I 'phioued Mr. Paxsqn to if lie bad
forgotten about one public meeting.
The answer I received was that be did
not see why we should have a meet
ing, and did uot thdnk it necessary
now that he had let out the keeper and
was going to have a general clean up
that he had done all 1 wanted.
I told him I had uot asked for the
removal of any one but that I wanted
to know the truth and a meeting was
the only way that 1 could find it out.
He further informed me that I could
not demand the keeper, etc. to appear
at a board of health meeting when
they were no more in the employ of
the board of health. He also informed
me that if it was a personal mntter
between Mr. Ka ne and myself that
I should not expert the hoard of
health to take it up.

the Fourth Liberty Loan bond aad
advnncc the figures more rapidly to
ward Hawaii's quota of $rt,7fi.1,0."n, as
half the amount has not yet been rpnch
ed after a week's campaign, instruc
tions have been issued to seek for
bond purchasers among the very peo
pie vv horn the sales forces may first
have sidestepped under the belief no
sales could be effected.
It has come to the attention of the
"itmpaign managers that instances have
a isen where this has been done and
thnt in some cases more money has
been received from the overlooked ones
than from those they had tin their
" You never con tell where a bond
cau be sold." said Manager Cmy But
tolph, yesterday, and proceeded to cite
Hales lieutenants had passed by a
certain house where two women lived,
their sympathies gaining the upper
'C 1 . - .1. c . - . I
haud in the problem of whether or
UOt they would call and request bond 1
It was finally decided to make the
rail, but they anticipated crossing off
the names as unavailable material.
Had Money Ready
Ou entering the house they found
that the women were really waiting
for some of the sales force to call upon
them. They hnd application made
out and four hnndred dollar was avail
able. The sales lieutenant were agree
ably surprised, and put down the ex
perience as a guide to future "over
look," a some people are railed.
Incidentally the sale worker casual
ly asked if a yardboy was on the prem
ises, and were informed in the affirma
five, also that he could not afford to
buy, in their opinion.
The yardbny, who originally hnil
ed from Nippon, was sought ami ask
ed if he wanted to buy a Liberty
Bond. The solicitors were electrified
when he said he would take five hun
dred dollars worth.
Buttolph also received a cablegram
from O. K. Weeks, campaign manager
at Han Franciaco announcing that the
Hawaiian quota is fi7Rr,0.r)0.
The actual figure are fl,7ftri,057,
but as the fractional seven does not
fit into the lowest Liberty Bond fifty
dollars the seven was dropped off.
Tt was worked out to such a nicety
that the last fifty dollar bond was
reckoned with," said Ir. Buttbiph.
Buttloph figures that it will be worth
while for' purchasers to figure on sub
scribing for that last (50 bond of the
original quota, even though Hawaii
does ro over and beyond the quota.
"And Hawaii will certainly do that
little thing," adds the manager.
The Kauai campaign is going along
merrily, over a quarter of a million
dollar having been pledged up to noon
yesterday. The Kauaians are not satis
fied, however, with their own intensive
campaign, but want some nut side pep,
and yesterday wirelessed to the lo
cal campaign committee to supply them
with a ipeakfir.
HaJsey To Kauai
Richard Halsey, inspector in rharge
of the I uited Stales Inimlgrat ion sin
tion was offered the opportunity and
gladly accepted and left last night
for the flarden Islands. The big Liber
ty Hood meeting will be held Sunday
afternoon at which Mr. Halsey will be
the principal speaker.
Owing to his fluency in speaking
Japanese he will also be usked to
make addresses in different towns of
the Island in that language nnd aid
in rolling up the total of Kauai's Jap
anese on the subscription list.
After a week's ciimpnlgu the re
suits of' the women's sales force will
be told at a meeting called f ' ten
o'clock tomorrow morning at the chain
bcr of commerce rooms, where Ms.
Hamilton V. Agee, will preside. Th.'
reports will be made, experiences tol.l,
suggestions called for, and uevv iustruc
The women ire doing fine work
throughout the city and are going into
by ways and taro patches with a zeal
which is commendable, and are getting
real tangible bond results.
Urged To Spood Up
The male sales, force 1 am already
been requested to speed up and add
to their already fine work. Manuger
Buttolph sent this letter to each work
"l'lan, to double your last subscrip
tion, if possible. Right now, with
victory in sight, our armies in Krauce,
Italy and Siberia must not be restrict
ed by the luck of a few paltry dollars,
and (ieruiuny must not be eucourHged
to go on with the struggle by nueipt
of the nevys that the Kouith Loan was
only floated by herculean effort
" Kememher the (Vntral Powers
have made upwards of a doxen heavy
call upon their peoples heavier than
anv yet asked by I'nclc Sam nnd arc
still going strong. This thing is get
ting to be more than a duty to vour
country now it is a dutv to vonrself
and to vour tiod' Hawaii cannot, must
not , fail to do her sliijr c! ' '
