Leprosy at ( ape Town.
United States Cousul Siler, ntCupe Town,
has sent to the Department of State an in?
teresting report on leprosy in South Africa.
Ho says that be has recently read in Ameri?
can papers accounts of the existeuco of lop
rosy on tho PaciGc const, with expressions
of fear that the disease may become wide?
spread. This i'ear, he say?, is but natural,
coming from a country whoso inhabitants
have heretofore enjoyed immunity front a
disease certainly the most loathsome and
most to ho droaded to which humanity is
heir. The first case of leprosy in Cape Colo?
ny was introduced by Malay slaves more
than one hundred years ago, but not uutil
1845 was any attempt made by the govern
ment to stamp out tho disease. Tho consul
says : "In that yoar a leper asylum was es?
tablished at Robben Island, seven miles
from Capo Town, and up to 1884 744 lepers
had been admitted to tho institution, and
comprised but a very small proportion of
the leper population, as the segregation of
lepers was not made compulsory. In fact,
lepers mingle freely with tho other citi/.eus,
aud their appearance is so common that
they attract little attention in the at roots.
At tho Cape Town Fish Market I have seen
lepers at work cleaning und curing lish, and
the disgusting sight, did not seem to deter
buyers. The rapid increase of the disease,
particularly among the European popu?
lation, as described in the recent reports of j
district surgeons, has aroused the colonial
government to action, nnd a second and
larger asylum is in process of construction,
tho present accommodation being wholly
inadequate to provide for all the a01 icted
applying for admission. The primary
cause of leprosy bos never been determined,
and it is questionable whether it rises spon?
taneously. Thatthedisea.se is hereditary,
no doubt seems to exist, and that it is con?
tagious is generally admitted by medical
practitioners of this country?a small mi?
nority oven holding it to bo infectious. Ro
cent microscopic investigation has estab?
lished tho fact that tho diseased tissues and
secretions are invaded by numerous para?
sitical organisms called bacilli. This specific
bacillus of leprosy is, no doubt, the true
cause; aud it is spread by iuoculation,
either by direct contact with the secretion
or suppurating sores of the leper, or trans?
mitted by the clothes, utensils, pipes, etc.,
containing those parasitical germs of the
disease. To touch a leprous person with a
sore finger, use the same knifo or fork, or
to drink out of iho same glass, may bo the
means of communicating the disease. While
many instances may ho pointed out horo
where men cohabited with leprous wives
without contracting tho contagion, well
tutthenticated cases are vouched for at
the asylum in which tho disease was
communicated by playing on a flute
previously used by a leper, sleeping in
a bed previously occupied by a leper, bait
ing leper fisherman's hook, etc. The imme?
diate cause of death is usually congestion of
the lungs, diarrhoea, or general exhaustion.
I bavo seen a man at the asylum with both
hands and feet oil". One of the worst cases
pointed out to me was that of a man with
none of his feet left, with the exception of a
portion of tho lower jaw and forehead, tho
nose, eyes, tongue aud cheekbones having
disappeared. He was only living because
the vital organs had been unmercifully un?
impaired. It has been my lot to witness
much human misery aud distress incident to
war and contagious epidemics, but I have
seen nothing, nor do I believe it possible for
the mind to conceive anything, so terrible
nnd abhorent at? the awful picture presented
by a congregation of lepers. The disease is
considered incurable, although it may he
kept in check for a time by certain medi?
cines and a liberal supply of fatty foods.
Colonial experts agree that the spread of
the disease can be prevented, and that it can
bo stamped out by stringent repressive
measures, looking to the segregation of lep?
ers. The segregation of lepers, however,
would avail but little in stamping out the
disease, unless the sexes wero strictly kept
apart ; for it is conclusively shown that the
disease does not impair the procreativo
powors, but that, on the contrary, lepers, en
pecially the females, are peculiarly libidi?
nous. The consul cites cases to show that
leprosy is communicable to animals, which,
if used for food, may in turn transfer the
disease to human beings.
Russia Menaces Turkey.?As stated
yesterday. Sir Henry Drummond Wolff, the
special English representative to Turkey
with reference to Egypt, has been instruct?
ed by his government to adhere to the terms
of the convent'ou with regard to Egypt re
I cently concluded between Turkey and Eng
j land. M. Nelidoff, Russian ambassador at
i Constantinople, has reminded Turkey ot
her liability to Russia because of the indem?
nity due on account of the Russo-Turkish !
war, and has intimated that ? the liability
is not met, Russia will take pledges to guar?
antee its payment. Count de Montebello,
French ambassador, and M. Nelidoff have \
had a conference with Kiamil Pa3ba. presi?
dent of tho Council of Ministers. It has \
been indicated to tho Porte that Turkey
need not entertain any fears respecting the '
outcome of her conduct in concluding tho j
new Ejjyptiau convent on with England,
assurance being given that Germany, Aus?
tria and Italy side with EngJaud in tbo
matter. It is believed that tha Convention
will be ratified before the 22d inst.
