Portland, Or., Dec. 5. Rev.
Father L. L. Courardy, who left
tho Umatilla Indian reservation in
1889 to take the place of tho late
Fatbor Damion, in chargo of tho
Molokai (Hawaii) lopor colony, is
hero visiting Archbishop Cross.
A few months ogo ho wont to
Japan to visit the lopor colony of
Gotamba, near Yokohama. What
ho witnessed there impelled him
to tho belief that it was his duty
to return to civiHaatiou and fit
himself as a physician and sur
geon by a course of study, and ho
is on his way to placo himself un
dor tho instruction of Mr. Monnot
"When I left Molokai," said
Father Conrardy in an interview
tins morning, "there was just an
oven 1200 lepers in the three set
tlements on tho island. Of theso
17 aro whito men, 2 whito women,
2. Chinese aud 1150 llawaiiaus
that is including half breeds, with
negro, Chinese, Japanese aud
Caucasian blood in their voius.
"Leprosy is not a contagious
diseaso except by inoculation.
Lot a person take proper precau
tious as to cleanliness nnd never
allow any part of his skin that
may bo in any way abrased or
broken to coinu into contact with
tho persou of a lopor and ho may
go on for years living among
them without contracting tho
"How, thon, did Father Damion
contract it ?" was asked.
"Through his inability to ref m-o
nttoudanco on a boy who had been
badly hurt in an accident," replied
tho missionary. "Father Damion
was suffering from a badly bruised
hand, but binding tho wound with
antiseptics and trusting for tho
best, ho dressed tho boy's wounds.
His precautious woro useless.
Ho had become inoculated, and it
was not long before tho marks of
u loper appeared upon him.
"There aro two stageR, or rather
grades, of leprosy. One is the
anesthetic leprosy and tho other
tho tuberculous. The first is
characterized by a suffusion un-
dor tho skin and a drawing up of
tho chords and tendons without
any eating away of tho parlB.
Tho other is accompanied by a
sloughing away of the llesh, parti
cularly about tho noso nnd ears,
nnd the loss of tho first joints of
the fingers and toes. It is this
hitter loper who carries with him
tho most dread of inoculation to
tho clean poison.
"Hero is a snd case," continued
Father Conrardy, producing a
bundle of photographs and reelect
ing one, pointing out the figure of
an old, whito bearded man, wIiobo
sightless eyes and shortened lin
gers told of his horrible condition.
"This man is Captain Clayton
Strong, once tho master of a suiait
trading schooner plying among
the South Sea Islands. For fif
teen years ho has been a resident
of Molokai, a leper.
"For tou yeais ho has been
paralyzed and for sevon years
blind. Ho is a Philudolphian,
and has wealthy relatives in llli
nois, but they refuse to commuui
cato with hiin, despite several loi
ters I liavo wiitten to them in his
behalf. The old man is fit! years
of age, and hiu been anioug the
natives of tho South Seas biuco ho
was a lad lti yeais old, having run
away fiom a whaling baik at that
"His case is remarkablo owing
to tho wonderful vitality which
koeps him alivo. Tho usual lifo
of a leper who is aillicted with tho
disease after reaching maturity is
six years. Children aro boldotu
ablo to withstand tho ravages of
llu disease over one year after it
