TUESDAY, NpV. 23, 1897.
Tho District Magistrate was
this morning and we bolieve
for good reaaous. Messrs. Castle and
Peterson appeared as attorneys for
Harry Davison and insisted in
tbe ease of their client tried at
once thoroby procodiug the cases
on the regular criminal calendar.
Mr. Creighton, who is prosecuting
Davison objected, and asked for a
continuance owing to his engagement
in the Circuit Court. Mr.
Castle objected stronuously but tho
Magistrate granted the continuance
after a lecture to Mr. Castle and his
assoointo. The clerk of the Court
was ordered to havo posters printed
to tho effect that the District Magistrate
will hear only civil caos in the
afternoons of every Monday,
and Friday. We compliment
Judge Wilcox on the determined
land taken by him. In tho future
the Courts will not allow tho "old
oliqnes" to run the seat of justice.
All defendants and prosecutors have
got to take their chanoes oven if
they are represented by sueh a
"powerful" attorney as W. E. Castle.
The dignity of tho Court should bo
upheld at all hazards. ,
THE NOBLE WHITE MAN

to prove" to the Hawaiians that thay

In Monday's issue of tho Ad vortiser
tho editor tackles tho leprosy question
and makes certain bold assertions
in regard to the results of tho
late Leprosy Congress at Berlin,
which nro absolutely without foundation
and for which no decent
authority can bo produced.
We do not at thru point caro to
nter into a discussion of lh question
of leprosy. Tho Congress was
called because tho dread disease was
in ascendance in France, Austria
and especially on Iceland. In Hawaii
the loprosy eontinuos to-day
exactly as it did twenty years ago.
The same amount of pationts of the
soourge are at Molokai to-day as
thero woro years ago.
Segregation was not approved of
by tho scientists at the Congross.
In Norway, whoro tho groatoet export
on loprosy, Dr. Armnnd Hanson
livos leprosy has decroasod without
segregation. In Hawaii whore a un-
iquo school of specialists run the
lh shop, leprosy is on tho increase
in spite of the most cruol, and we
fool like saying it infamous segregation
Wo promised, however, not to discus
I lie question of leprosy or the
titiinrfitit manner in which tho question
is dealt with hero by quacks,
onarlntans and ignoramuses. Wo
wish only to reproduce the following
tribute of tho Advurtisor to the
"noble white man:"
"The intelligent natives should
see that this serious matter has been
handled adequately, only by their
whito friends. Much excollnt work
was dono under the Monarchy, but
the indifference of the natives on
tho subject hadj',its influence on the
Monarchy. It is the truth, or not
far from it, to say that if the nntivo
sentiment on treatment of the
measles, (he small-pox, the cholora
and leprosy, had prevailed during
the last fifty years, tho race would
now be extinot. They owe the life
of tho race, not to their own intelligence,
but to the skill and judgment
of other races."
Has it ovor dawned upon the
mind of the Advertiser olique, which
is at all times throwing bouquets at
each other, that tho Hawaiians, at
one time lived happily here and
woro never bothered by diphteria,
cholera, leprosy or small-pox? The
"noble" white nlau gave to thorn
these valuable gifts and when the
ravages of the epidemics wero felt,
he stood up for his own self-preservation
and adopted tho most cruel
measures in tho fight against tho
It is very true that the Hawaiians
havo boon decimated through smallpox,
diphtoria, syphilis and leprosy.
But who brought it here, dear Advertiser?
Was it not the "nobln"
"Tiei owe the life of the race lo the
skill and judgment of other races " It
must make any fair minded man
boil over with indignation to
read such a sentence from tho pen
of a mu whose friends brought to
these shores the whalers of Now
England and syphilis, tho Chineso
ooolins, rfiid leprosy, the American
promoters of gospel and sugar
dividends and diphtoria and tho
Japanoso nud cholera.
As we have said above, wo do not
at present dosiro to take up or deal
with the question of leprosy, but in
tho name of common sense let the
"other side" leave tho question of
tho "noble" whito man alone, and
remember, not alone the good he
has done to tho Hawaiian, but tho
unpardouabln evils for whioh tho Hawaiians
cau find no redress but will
suffer even into the third and fourth
