This roport was supplemented by
tho following letter from Dr Day
To Mr T F Lansino Chairman of
the Committeoon Insane Asylum
Dear Sir Fearing that I might
not be able to moot you and Dr
Wood at the Iusano Asylum befere
leaving for Hawaii next Tuesday 1
drove over thore this afternoon
Tho situation is critical and I
dont see any way of properly re
lieving it short of building a new
ward of strong cells Something
could be accomplished by weeding
out a number of chronic idiots aud
harmloss cases That ought to be
done at once but it will not relievo
tho situation much because the
pressing netd is for more strong
rooms for the violently incane such
cases as cannot be put into a general
ward liko Ward No 2
Several such cases are now obliged
to spond the nights in the chairs
used for refractory pationts
Nothing short of another build
ing with separate colls will meet
the requirements as they should be
met
If however that is impossible at
the present time I would suggest
restoring tho separate cells in Ward
No 2 walling in tho oating pavilion
and converting that into a douiitory
for harmless oases and erecting a
new eating room ou the othor side
of the kiteheu
Thoso changes could probably b
made for less monoy than would be
required to put up a new building
and might servo to tido us over un
til wo can put up a handsome new
ward with aooomodat ions for 10 or
50 patients similar to Ward No
will not be horo at tho next
meeting of the Board but any de

come to in Iho mattor or any recom

Novombor 2 189G an Insti
tute wn9 established in Hono

nro woll und favorably known in
Texas thoir homo section and
boar with them tho unqualified
ondorsomont of somo of tho
loading men of thut State In
tho short timo sinco the estab
lishment of tho Institute five
pationts havo dntorod and are
now under troatmont
Tho Institute is located in tho
Arlington Oottago on Hotel
Strcot a contral and advautago
ous location
Tine ouki nAUMijKss and kasy
It is claimed for tho Ilagoy
troatmont that thore has never
been an instance in which any
patient has sufforod in tho least
from taking tho troatmont Pa
tionts pursuo thoir usual avoca
tions whilo boing treated Tho
Instituto guarantees to abso
lutely and positively dostroy tho
drink habit and eradicate tho
dosiro for liquor tho pationt to
bo tho judge in the matter The
samo with tho morphine cocaine
and tobacco habits
Tho troatmont is never in
trusted to any except competent
and roliablo physicians who
malco an individual study of tho
caso of each patient Every
patient is treated separately and
privatoly and his treatment is
inado to meet his individual re
quirement
ALCOHOLISM
Sufficient evidence 1ms boon
Given bv eminent physicians and
othor exports to convince any
fair minded person that tho
liquor habit is as truly a disoaso
as consumption asthma or any
chronic or hereditary ailment
Then why should the victim
of tho habit hesitate to bo treat
ed Ho would not hesitate to
bo treated for any othor disease
why this Although it might
seem a humiliating concession
to - take troatmont for a more
habit of which ho claims to bo
tho master yet ho certainly is
not master of a disoaso And
this habit soon becomes a dis
ease
NARCOTISM
Tho hnbit of using opium
morphine cocaine etc is on
tho incrcaso and much more to
bo dreaded than the liquor habit
Thoso pernicious drugs count
thoir victims sometimes among
the brightest and best of our
land who unless cured close
thoir career in a short time
either in a miserable grave or
an insano asylum
Tho treatment of these habits
is practically aliko aud they are
as easily cured as tho liquor
habit but the pationt requires
very guarded attention which
this institution supplies
TQliACQO ETC
Tho habit of using tobacco
although not so much to be
dreaded as thoso before men
tioned in somo constitutions is
as much a disease as tho liquor
hnbit is in all constitutions
Cigarette smoking has bocomo
tho bane of California young
mon and is doing as much or
moro to undermine tho integ
rity of tho next generation of
mon as tho oxcessivo use of
liquor Onco within tho cruol
clutchos of tho vile cigarette
tho boy or young man dogonor
atos and becomes in many enses
a wreck
Tho tobacco disoaso is oasily
cured Should tho pationt havo
tho tobacco habit combined
with either of tho above men
tioned disooses and dosiro troat
mont for both ho should so in
form tho physician in charge
who will put him under special
troatmont
Any person desiring to mako
inquiries concerning tho troat
mont torms etc will always
find tho soorotary of tho Insti
tuto at tho Arlington Oottago
All communications and inter
views will bo strictly confidential
