When Governor Carter was in
San Francisco last July, he was
called upon by C. H. Dwindle,
who introduced himself as a Yale
man of the class of '60, and who
spoko to the Governor concerning
the discharge of Georgo Pepalou
from the leper hospital of San
Erancisco as being cured, the cure,
it was claimed, being through the
use of "Witter Water."
The Governor saw Pepalou, who
had at one time tried to get into
the settlement at Molokai. He
was examined, ho claimed, by Dr.
Day of the Honolulu Board of
Health, who turned him over to
Dr. Carmichaelof tho United States
quarantine authorities, and Pepa
lou was sent back to San Francis
co, where ho began a systematic
course of taking tho "Witter Water"
for three years. At the end of that
time, he submitted to all kinds of
tests and examinations, nono of
which showed any evidence of
leprosy, and Pepalou was discharg
ed by the Board of Health. This

sensation by one day walking in on
Geo. W. Smith, then a member of
tho Board of Health, and asking
to be sent to Molokai.
Pepalou spoke of the symptoms
and effects of the water, saying
that it was a severe test: that it

pain and burning sensation, par
ticularly at tho extremities, which
had long since been numb. Gov
ernor Carter noticed that he had
lost a largo part of his right foot,
a consul eablo portion of the left.
foot, part of the thumb and sever
al fingers on each hand, but tho
wounds look healthy and the man
claims to bo free from all spots
and rash.
Doubt arose in Governor Car
ter's mind as ,to whether Pepalou
had ever been a leper but the man
stated that his mother died of lo
prosy in JNow York City, that he
was the, youngest of a number of
children, and the only one that
inherited the disease. When seven
years old, he was placed in con
finement in New OrleanB, being
pronounced a leper by Dr. Isidor
Dyer, who treated him there. At
that time, Pepalou stated, a physl
cian was brought from France to
treat the child of a prominent
cattle man of Lousiana who had
leprosy, and Pepalou was also un
der treatment by this French
physician. He made the state
ment that he firmly believed that
leprosy was caused by tho exces
sive use of salt; that the French
physician told him that there
must be something in the food
of tho people there that caused the
discease. Tho physician experi
mented with two children, and by
the excessive use of salt in their
food, ho succeeded in bringing out
a rash, then black spots and num
bness, until they were finally pro
nounced lepers.
Later on, in California, Pepalou
was examined by Dr. Hutchinson,
a famous English physician. He
claimed that while in Honolulu,
both Dr. Day and Dr. Wood, after
a thorough physical examination
and bacteriological test, pronounc
ed him undoubtedly to be a leper.
Before his discharge by tho Board
of Health of San Francisco, ex
aminations and tests were made,
which failed to show any evidence
of leprosy.
For more than thirty-three years
tho man has been under confine
ment, so that his habit of life is
such as to render him utterlv use
less in tho outside world. He
asked Governor Carter for permi

'Is there no danger of the

LONDON, January 1G. America will support Germany's con

This announcement, puts a somewhat different face upon tho
Morocco problem, as will be seen by tho following Associated Press
dispatch printed in the last mainland papers received here.
SAN FRANCISCO, January 16. The Supremo Court of California
has denied the petition of State Senator Bunkers for a new trial.
Bunkers was ono of four members of the upper house of tho last
California legislature indicted for boodling in an attempt to hold up
the building and loan associations, whose affairs were under investi
gation by a committee of the legislative body. Bunkers was brought
to trial, and was sentenced to a term in the penitentiary.
WASHINGTON.January 16.-Debato on the Philippine Bil closed"
in the, House yesterday. Amendments will be offered today, and a vote
will probably bo taken on Wednesday. The Republican leaders aro
confident that the bill will pass without any amendments.
SAN FRANCISCO, January 15. The Imperial Chinese Com
mission were busy today inspecting the U. S. military post at tho
Presidio, then tho Cruiser Chicago, the flagship of the Pacific Squad

the game is reformed.
WASHINGTON, D. C, January 15. The resignation of General

succeeds to tho head of the military staff of tho army.
WASHINGTON, D. C, January 15. The nomination as cheif of
the Naval Bureau of Equipment of Captain U. T. Cowles, was sent to
the Senate today.
It is probable that this iB a mistake, as tho only naval officer of
tho name is Captain W. S. Cowles, Brother-in-law of President Roose
velt, who was in command of tho battleship Missouri at tho timo of tho
explosion of ono of her guns. q '
WASHINGTON, January 15. Secretary of War Taft has de

teers at hand respectively as Chernigov and Tchernicov. It is the
capital of a province of the same namo toward the southwest of Russia
and duo north of the Black Sea. Tho province has more than 2,000,000
