Is being. signed nml circulated In tho
city by responsible clllrcns asking tho
Director of Public Health to ilcIso n
painless method of putting tho
Chlnnman to death. (Julto differently,

boon under treatment for font years
. ln tho leper colony nt Wackw ell's

attending church an often ns ho likes,
along with tho thousands of other
hospital palicntfl and Inmates of tho

In enmo from tho authorities of tho
Metropolitan Hospltnl, and probably
n surprising ono to those who rcgnrd

Kckas has travelled much In this
country since leaving hhuhomcland

miner In Nevada silver mines, a
cowpunchor In Wyoming, and has.
done work on railroads In nlmost
every Stnto In tho Union. When

resented being condemned to such a
place.- Ho eluded Clio guards rmo

so weak from lack of food and n
posurp that ho could scniccly speak.
The Knnsas Cll authorities dis
covered his trouble and identified him
as tho escaped leper from Salt Uilio
City. They did not stop,' however, lo
glvo him treatment, but advised him
to got out of town as quickly as
possible, and even gnvo him milllcli'tit

It is not generally known, but tho
authorities of tho Metropolitan Hos
pital havo rcloascd two such cases
within tho year which they ccrtllHd
ns having been cured of leprosy.
Much secrecy was observed in making
tho discharges It was feared that if
any publicity was attached to tho fnct,

' Dr. W. S. White, resident patholo
gist, explained to a World1 reporter

yesterday that ono patient, an Amerl-'
can, had found work in Now York and
wns nt 'present employed by a lnigo
building contractor In Harlem. Ho
has perfected himself in stono masonry
and Is tho head of n gang of men.
Periodically he undergoes examina
tion by n physician familiar with his,
case to make suro'that there Is no re-'
turn nt tho disease. So far, Jie reports
his health has been constantly im
proving and his strength has com
pletely returned. Tho other is a
woman, whom tho Gov eminent depor

Indies. 'A few letters which sho

vigor and health. It Is snld sho has

Dr. I Dearborn, visiting derma

that better caro Is provldod for tho

Our doctors know how to caro for
them, and In numerous cases cures,
or comparative cures, can bo recorded.
Tho public still labors under the old
delusion that leprosy is Incurable and

"Thousands of doctors throughout
tho States also continue in this way
of thinking, but tho tlmo must come
