situation, andfthe question for us to ask ourselves
is but one Can we devise any measures w hereby
these indispensable requisites can be obtained?
II the answer shall be in the negative, then in
deed is our situation a deplorable one; and it
only remains for us to cling a few years longer
to our failing fortunes and then write "Icha
bod upon our escutcheons.
For ourselves, however, we firmly believe that
with the exercise of the proper amount of energy
and enterprise and the appropriation of a moder
ate suni by the Legislature to be judiciously ex
panded, tLc first of these requisites labor- can
be eecured by us. Without labor, as wc arc at
present, capital finds nothing here to attract it.
With labor, and the adoption of measures where
by our now unproductive lands will be available
for cultivation, capital will flow in upon us. It
is near at band ; and it will inevitably follow the
natural laws of supply and demand. Oars is a
goodly heritage, if wc will but bestir ourselves
and improve it.
In our next, wc propose to further pursue this
nubject, and shall make some practical sugges
tions that we trust will be found worthy of con
Farewell to Emma Square.
3fn. Editor: I understand that at length the
(Government band, by orders from headquarters,
will hereafter play in the Government square near
the Palace, acd that the Duck and Chicken Ranch
on Emma street will be no more a place of public
resort on Saturday afternoons. I suppo.se the
change will be satisfactory to aboof. everybody.
Of coarse the apparent proprietor cf the Kanch
will bave the satisfaction of seeing his grass grow
nntrodJen. ho that I ho h.-iv-rrnn will be increased. 1
and he will no loneer be lent in a state of nervous !
excitement about little boys with proclivities for .
running about and picking flowers. And the ducks
and chickens will have the whole Ranch to them
selves. And the ladies and gentlemen who like to
hear good nasic ia a public place without meeting
with black looks, may hereafter enjoy that inesti
mable privilege. X.

other pari of his lie-Id, but a simple mention of
Lis name elicited a proof of the high estimation

titepped on shore, we found the lepers assembled
to the number of two or three hundred there
arc CJ7 all told in the settlement for they bad
Lcard iu advanc of ovir coming, and our cars
were greeted with the sounds of lively music.
This procc.-d-.-l from the baud,'' consisting of a
drum, a fife ami two flutes, rather skillfully
playwl upon by four young lads, whose visages
were horribly marked and disfigured with lcprcwy.
The sprightly airs with which these poor crea
tures welcomed the arrival of the party, sounded
strangely incongruous and out of place, and
grated harshly upon our feelings. And then as

us with thcir touch. A few cheerful words of
enquiry from the byrician, Dr. Trousseau, ad
dressed to individuals as to their particular cases,
broke the embarrassment of this first inectinr.
and soon the crowd were chatting and laughing
just like any other crowd of thoughtless Hawai
ian?, and with but few exceptions these unfortu
nate exiles showed no signs of the settled melan
choly that would naturally 1? looked for from
people so hopelessly situated. Very happy were
they when spoken to, and quite ready to answer
any questions. Wc saw numbers whom wc had
known in years past, and who having disappeared,
we had thought dead. One we had known as a
Representative, and a very intelligent one too, in
the Legislature of 18G?. On greeting Lira as an
old-time acquaintance, he observed, " Yes, wc
meet again in this living grave !" He is a man
of no little consideration among the people,
being entrusted by the Hoard of Health xvith the
care of the store which is kept here for the sale
of such goods as the people require. For be it
known that the lejiers, like other people, have
tastes to gratify; and eomc of them, cither by
their own exertions or by the assistance of friends,
have the means to pay for even small luxuries.
The goods are sold to them for cash at a trifling
advance on cost, sufficient to clear actual expenses
of freight. Of course, the people were dressed
in thtir beft to meet the visitors, and it is quite
safe to say that they were better clothed generally
than would have been an equal number of people
in any of the country districts. Many wore shoes
and coats, but there was something ludicrous as
well as melancholy in witnessing the exhibition
of the ruling passion for finery in the fair sex.
A woman once perhaps a Hawaiian belle with
fair pretensions t3 beauty of face, but now carry
ing a countenance that is hideous beyond expres
sionsports a hat of the latent style, garnished
with gay ribbons, and throws about glances of
self-satisfaction from her leper-glazed, goggle eyes.
But all do not appear to be lepers who are
leprous. We saw numbers who might pass along
our streets any day without being euppected of
the taint. They had it however, in one way or
another. Sjmctimes on the extremities only,
eating away the flesh and rotting the bones of
the hands or feet ; and sometimes only appearing
in black and indurated spots on the skin, noticed
only on a somewhat clo?e examination. This last
sort is said to be the worst, as being most surely
fatal and casie-st transmitted. We saw women
who had the disease in this stage, waliing about,
whom it was difficult to believe were Irpers.
At the landing we met
NR. WILLIAM r. RAGS PALE,
Who acts under the direction of tlu Board as
Superintendent of the Settlement. Mr. Ragsdale
is well known all over the islands, as a very in
telligent, wcll-edueated half-caste, and one who
possesses a remarkable ability for influencing his
countrymen. T.'.c Bjard may, and doubtless do,
regard themselves as peculiarly fortunate in hav
ing the services here of eo energetic and appar

Necessarily, his authority among his fellow-exiles,

of courts and so to speak beyond the operation
of law is almost autocratic, but so far as wd
could learn from the lepers themselves, he uses

cottages near the road, in which reside Mrs. Xa

Peter Young Kaeo. Wo found them both very

j cheerful under thcir sad conditioa of exile.
Passing on over a slight rise, we came to the Hos
pital buildings, pleasantly and airily situated on
a plain between a towering mountain and the sea
shore. There are some twelve of these buildings
constructed of wood, enclosed in a neat fence, and
all kept thoroughly whitewashed. The grass
was soft and green within the enclosure, but xve
noted the total absence of trees. We learned
however that since the water had been laid on

indispensable element is always at hand. Six
thousand two hundred and fifty-three feet of lead
pipe was used in this work, at a cost to the Board
of SI ,500.
Led by Dr. Trousseau and Mr. Wilder xve now
proceeded to inspect the interior of the Hospital
buildings, and to
VISIT THE SICK.
If our sensibilities were 6hocked at the eight of
the crowd of lepers we bad met at the beach, walk
ing about in physical strength and activity, how
shall we describo our sensations in looking upon
these loathsome creatures, in whom it was indeed
hard to recognize anything human ? The rooms
were cleanly kept and well ventilated, but the at
mosphere within was pervaded with the 6ickening
odor of tho grave. At each end, squatted or lying
prone on their respective mats or mattresses, were
the yet breathing corpses of lepers in tbe last
stages of various forms of the disease, who glanced
inquisitively at us for a moment out of their ghoul
like eyes those who were not already beyond
eceing and then withdrew within tbeir dreadful
selves. Was there ever a more pitiful eight ?
Pen cannot describo it.
" And, if thou tellest the heavy atory ri;ht,
I'pon my soul the bearers will shed tears;
X'ea, even their foes will obed fast falling- tears,
Aud ay Alas, it was a piteous thing !"
In one room we saw a eight that will ever re
main fixed indelibly on the tablets of memory. A
little blue-eyed, flaxen haired child, apparently
three or four years old, a half-caste, that looked
up at us with an expression of timorous longing
to bc caressed and loved ; but alas, in its glassy
eyes and transparent cheeks were the unmistaka- i
ble 6igns of the curse the ein of the parents
visited upon the child ! j
In another room was one a mass of rottinz
flesh, with but little semblance oi humanity re
maining who was dying, and whose breath
came hurried and obstructed. A few hours at
most, and his troubles would bc over, and his
happy release arrive. There had been fourteen
deaths in the settlement during the previous
fortnight. On the day of our visit there were 53
inmates of the hospital.
From January, 1S6G, (when the first leper
arrived) up to the date of our visit, a peiiod of
over eight years, there have been 1155 persons
sent to Kalawao. Of these, 448 bave died 304
men and 144 women. The majority of these
deaths have occurred since the beginning of the
late reign, when the deportation of lepers was
thoroughly undertaken. The whole number of
lepers in the settlement at the date of our visit
(April 14th) was as before etated, C97, of whom
421 were men, 251 women, and 22 children.
In the centre of the hospital equare, are the
office buildings. Here is the Dispensary, well
supplied with medicines, under the care of Wm.
Williamson, an Englishman, formerly well known
in Honolulu as a brick mason. He and his wife
are both lepers, as is also one of his children.
He is a useful and trustworthy man, and of great
service to the Board. In conversation he ex
pressed himself very cheerfully ; in fact said he
was, as ho looked and acted, "as smart as a
cricket," and lacked for pothing. Adjoining the
Dispensary is the office of the Superintendent,
where the accounts and records of the settlement
are kept, and where Governor Ragsdale holds his
miniature Court, and where is also the Post-office.
IIOW THE LEfERS LIVE.
We took pains to inquire closely of individuals
with whom we had formerly been personally
acquainted, as to how they lived, and more par-
ticularly ae to whether they had any real or
fancied awe of complaint ngainBt the general
rorasaioft any of ti c local official.

The schooner Utnra runs regularly between
! Kalaupaja and tlia city, carrying supplies for
Monsieur Kallieu, the French Commissioner,
(who, as wc stated bcfoT.', was one of our rarty)
Had nrougnt wit lam On board the steamer a
number of paekajes of contributions for diitri-
bution among the lepers, consisting of clothing,
cloth, oils, toys, necklacet-, socks, knives, pipes,
etc., to be confided to the care of Father Dami
ens, the self-exiled Catholic priest. The other
persons besides M. Ballieu w hose donations con
tributed to swell the list of presents were Mar
shal Parke, Afong & Achuck, and Messrs. G.
Rhodes, Chas. Long, and F. W. Dunne. The
assembled lepers on the beach warmly expressed
thcIr gratitude to the Commissioner for the gifts
hc had brought, and when hc embarked from the
beach they bade him farewell with hearty cheers.
The religious aspirations of the lepers are ap
parently well provided for, as they have no less
than three places of worship, a Catholic church
at Kalaupapa, and both a Catholic and a Protes
tant church at Kalawao. The Rev. Mr. Kaholo
kahiki, a regularly ordained minister under the
Hawaiian Board, himself a leper, officiates in tho
Protestant church. There are also two school
houees at Kalawao, whcio the children, of whom
there are some twenty-two of both sexes in the
settlement, receive instruction in Hawaiian. Wc
6aw groups of leper children at play, seeming to
enjoy themselves just like other children ; and i
seemed incongruous enough to us. But after all,
we ourselves appeared to be the only ones par
ticularly sad in this valley ot the shadow of
death on that day. J
There is one objectionable feature about this
leper settlement, for the existence of which how
ever the Board of Health are in no wise responsi
ble, and which they would he glad to get rid of.
This is the presence in the valley of some 184 of
the original inhabitants, who arc not lepers.
These are known as " kokuas," or assistants,
but their principal occupation appears to consist
in assisting the lepers to consume their rations.
They do little or no work ; will not improve the
opportunity afforded to raise taro to sell to the
Board ; pasture their animals ad libitum on the
government land ; live on the lepers ; are the au
thors of evil report, and are a bad lot generally.
They own kuleanas in the neighborhood, and so
cannot bc forced to leave the district without a
ppfvnul aet of T,orlinirt whirh it ia to bo
hoped will bc passed lor their benefit during the
Having spent fully three hours in the examina
tion of the lepers and thcir surroundings, we
bade them farewell, and amid their cheerful aloha
nuts re-embarked on tho Kilauea and took our
departure for Honolulu. We had passed through
an experience that was painful and saddening ;
witnessed scenes of human misery that we shall
never forget ; and although nothing short cf ao
tual duty will tempt us to make another visit to
Kalawao, we are far from regretting that xve un
dertook the trip.
The medical gcntlomen from abroad who ac
companied our party were close observers, and
may perhaps hereafter make known the conclu
sions at which they arrived, for the benefit of
medical ecience ; but every impartial mind must
admit that in the isolation and management of
the unfortunate few among its population who
have contracted this dreadful disease, the Hawai
ian Government through its Board of Health, has
acted with a promptness, efficiency and humanity
that entitles it to the utmost credit, and which
this in particular places it in the foremost rank
among civilized nations.
Numerous Subpoenas. During the treats of the
rioters last week, no less than two hundred and fifty-.'
one oubpajnaa were issued out of the Supreme Court
i ant? served by the police. The native police deserve
credit for the deligent manner in which they have
1 worked ever since the riot; while Marshal Parke ant
Deputy Marshal Dayton have both been untiring in;
their labors ia working up the cases and getting evi-!
! Ocr attextiox has been called to the fact that in
, caseB of assignments of estates, although proper
public notice is given, creditors are generally very
neglectful in handing in their accounts in time. In
this manner settlements are often unnecessarily de
ferred, whereby all the creditors suffer; and besides,
the assignee is caused additional labor iu collecting
tho different accounts, &c. There are now different
eetates in the hands of assignees, the settlement of
which will no doubt bc greatly dispatched by the
creditors handing in their accounts immediately.
Temperance in Laiialna. It should be mentioned
to the credit of our sister city, that it Is now asserted
on the authority of her best citizens, that the vioo
of intemperance, (in former years so rife there) la
now quite rare, a drunken man being an uncom
mon sight. On the other hand, we learn that the
plantation mules are in the habit of imbibing the
" skimmings ' that are thrown out from the mills,
and that it is a common thing for them to be seen
on Sundays ia a "beastly"' state of iuebrK'y. i
