Much has been said and written
about the physical distress and suffer
ings of the natives of Alaska, hut the
relief and assistance so much needed
seem as far away as ever. Why a so
called Christian government should be
so tardy in extending relief to its
wards is yet to he explained.
That the aborigines, need medical
care and attention may he proved by
citing a few cases taken at random:
Recently, on Cook inlet, a native
child died from the effects of a burn.
Medical care would have saved it.
Another child died from a bloody
tumor of the eye. The removal of the
eve would have relieved the affliction.
Another child suffers from spinal
disease. . Death is inevitable unless
medical treatment is given.
A young dative man is going blind.
Can only see a little at night, as he
cannot stand the light of day.
A mother not able to be about for a
year, could be cured with surgical aid.
Years of suffering and untimely
death, with vain appeals for help, are
so common that something humane
should be done.
Dr. Romig has taken the initiative
in so far as he is able, and now pro
poses and will soon have ready a small
building where natives may come and
receive medical and surgical care, lie
proposes to furnish the quarters and
free medical service to those that can
find the means to come and receive
care. The items of transportation,
heat, light and sustenance will be ex
pected from those coming and from
their friends and charitable people.
The place will he called St. Luke’s,
to designate it from the Pioneer Hos
pital, since they will he entirely sepa
rate institutions.
This is an entirely charitable move
on the part of the doctor, with no hope
or expectation of remuneration, and
should call for some help or considera
tion from the friends of the native.
The field and scope of this work is
expected to reach from Prince Will
iam sound to ITnalaska.
