along, and the prosjxjet of war is now
exceedingly slight. There has been very
stormy weather on the Labrador Coast,
resulting in numerous shipwrecks and
great loss of life. The election cam-

The formal dedication of Kapiolani
Home for Leper Children took place yes
terday forenoon, as announced by the P.
C. Advertiser. The details were carried
out in accordance with the programme.
The Royal Standard floated from a flag
staff inside the grounds at Kakaako.
Eleven o'clock was the time fixed for com
mencing the ceremonies of the day, and
shortly before that hour numerous car
riages w.- th 1,IL trVS???rJg

terest seemed to be taken in the events of
the day by the natives who reside along
the line of road, and by the few remaining
Japanese at the depot. The rain of the
previous night had laid the dust, and the
day was delightfully fresh and cool,
with a strong trade wind blowing. The
Queen's Own Volunteers, commanded
Dy captain w. t. O'Connor, acted as
a guard of honor; and Colonel E. W.
Purvis, vice Chamberlain, received the
guests. A company of leper children
occupied seats tinder the temporary lanai
erected for their accommodation in the
yard of the Home, the Royal Hawaiian
Band occupying the town side of the same
structure. The children were clean and
neatly dressed, and appeared to be in vig
orous health. There was nothing whatever
visible to the eye to suggest an unpleasant
Prompt at 11 o'clock their Majesties the
King and Qxieen, accompanied by other
members of the Royal Family, drove up to
the enclosure and were received by the
Vice Chamberlain, the Queen's Own salut

S. Cleghorn ; the President of the Board of
Health, His Excellency Mr. Gibson; His
Excellency Paul Neumann, Attorney Gen
eral, and the Hon. Colonel Iaukea, mem
bers of the Board of Health, had previously
arrived, and received their Majesties at the
entrance to the large schoolroom where the
opening ceremonies were to take place, the
Royal anthem being played by the band.
The room was tastefully decorated with
palms, evergreen wreaths ami flowers. A
large picture of Queen Kapiolani, presented
to the Home by His Excellency Mr. Gibson,
was hung in the center of the room, sur
rounded by wreaths. Underneath this
picture a beautiful blue silk banner was
suspended, having a cross and the letters
K. H. worked in gold upon it. On either
side of the picture was a vase of flowers
The sides and corners of the room were
similarly decorated, as was also the veranda
at the main entrance. Among those pres

ADDKKSS BY T1IK PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF
His Excellency the President of the
Board of Health then delivered an address
in the Hawaiian language, after which he
sjK)ke in English as follows:
Your Majesties, Your Royal Highnesses,
ladies and gentlemen The memorable oc
casion which unites us to-day not only
marks another day's advance in the ever
onward march of the Hawaiian Kingdom
on the highway of humanity and civiliza
tion, but records in a notable manner in
the dedication of this building, an anniver
sary which should ever be remembered by
the Hawaiian nation with deep interest
and grateful hearts. I allude to the com
ing of the Sisters of Charity on November
8, 1883, to assist in caring for and nursing
the lepers, and other sufferers among our
people. As the 8th of this year fell upon a
Sunday we were constrained to arrange for
the dedication on this day, the 9th, instead
of upon the actual anniversary. Let me
briefly narrate the history of the benevolent
mission of the Sisters among us, for it
would seem to be peculiarly appropriate
upon this doubly interesting occasion. It
had been felt for some few years previous
to their coming that many sick among us
were afflicted with a disease so peculiarly
objectionable in its character and condi
tions that to cope with it, with any possi
bilities of relief, it was not alone sufficient
to be provided with skilled physicians and
remedies, but with experienced and de
voted nurses especially women, endowed
with that rare devotion to the cause of the
sick and suffering that arises solely from
the highest inspiration of Christian charity.
The hope was entertained that possibly
some of those self-sacrificing religious
women, who had devoted their lives to the
care of the lepers in such institutions as
that at Tracadie, in Canada, might be in
duced to exercise their great charity in
these Islands. In furtherance of the reali
zation of this hope, I had the hoiiqr to ad
dress the Bishop of Olba a letter, dated
January 4, 1833, in which I informed His
Lordship that the care of the sick poor of
thus Kingdom had most earnestly enlisted
the sympathies of Their Majesties the
axxj the necessity for trained and faith
ful nurses, and that nowhere could such
invaluable bssistance be obtained so readi
ly as among the ranks of those blessed
Sisterhoods of Charity, who have, in parts
of the earth, devoted themselves to the
care of the sick, and concluded with these
"My Lord, as I am aware that eminent
institutions of charity, such a I have re
ferred to, and which this country needs,
abound in the Catholic Church ; and as I
feel assured that your representation would
be all influential, I make an appeal, and
offer an invitation through you to Sisters
of Charity of your Church to come to the
sick of this country; and I doubt not I
may proffer to them in advance the pro
found obligation and gracious recognition
of Their Majesties, the thanks of His Maj
esty's Government, and the blessings of the
The Bishop - responded promptly and fa
vorably. The Rev. Fathere P. Leonor was
designated as the agent to go forth on a
mission to seek. the much needed help; and
His Majesty gave to the Rev. Father a
Royal Commission to assist him in his
quest. After arduous, and for a long time
baffled endeavors in his many applications
to the various religious orders in the United
States, he found at last, after petitioning
over fifty different religious Sisterhoods, a
favorable hearing at the Franciscan Con
vent of Saint Anthony, in the City of Syra
cuse, in the State of New York. At this
Convent the question of the great mission
of charity to care for the lepers of the Ha
waiian Islands was discussed and deliber
ated in a solemn Chapter of the Sisterhood,
and I am happy to say as a result of the
representations made, and of the noble en
thusiasm awakened, that no less than
twenty-four volunteers among the Sisters
offered themselves as willing and anxious
to go forth and help the hopeless sufferers
in the far distant isles of the Pacific. Of
this number six were selected as a pioneer
band, and accompanied by the Mother Su
Ierior of the Convent, Sister Marianne,
arrived in Honolulu on November 8th,
A. D, 1883, by the steamship Mariposa.
This little band of heroic and faithful
women divided its forces, the Mother Su
perior and three of the Sisters taking their
post of watchful duty and unremitting toil
at this Hospital, and the three other Sisters
going to the Malulani Hospital established
at Wailuku. An additional recruit of four
Sisters from the Convent at Syracuse ar
rived here on the 22d day of April, 1S8L
per steamship Alameda. Shall I speak in
praise of the work done bv the Sisters? I
think not. Mere praise for such work as
theirs would be entirely out of place, but I
will say that they have won the hearts of
our sufferers whom they care for; and in
return let us revere them in our memories
and never forget the coming of this Ameri
can mission of charity and the "Landing
of the Sisters" Day.
Another anniversary in connection with
our sad national calamity is rapidly ap
proaching, for it is now within a few weeks
of twenty years, since this little State was
first called upon to gird up her loins and
do battle with the most gigantic, and sup
posed to be incurable malady that has fol
lowed the birth of man a disease that was
eating away the very vitals of a once nu
merous people, and one the nature of
which continues to bufiie the researches of
the most learned and persevering of physi
cians in all parts of the civilized world,
leprosy may be said to have first struck
this nation alxmt thirty years ago. or, at
least, it had not attracted the attention of
medical men at an earlier period. As soon
as the disastrous effects of the disease were
manifest among the people, the Hawaiian
Government, in a brave and philanthropic
spirit, bent its energies to stay its ravages.
It was a great task in view of the limited
resources of this small State and the other
important demands upon its finances. In
view of the rapid increase and apparent
epidemic character of the disease, segrega
tion was determined upon by the Govern
ment, and the first step taken was to secure
a suitable isolated retreat where, by as
humane as possible a system of separation
from the healthy portion of the commun
ity, the unfortunate lepers would receive
such care and attention as would alleviate
as much as possible their unhappy condi
tion. In January, H;, was first com
menced the Leper Settlement of Kalawao,
a beautiful domain of about J,000 acres in
extent, on the island of Molokai. Since
the establishment of the Settlement up to
this date there have been cared for within
its bounds, as sick wards of the nation,
3,101 lepers, and there are of this number 689
living at this day. The wants of these un
fortunate people have been attended to in
a manner which, consideringour resources,
would do credit to the most powerful,
wealthy and enlightened of foreign States.
In thus briefly referring to the work of
comparatively but few years it must be al
ways borne in mind that the calamity came
upon the nation somewhat by surprise, and
certainly with an unanticipated virulence,
which required almost superhuman efforts
to counteract in our then state of inex
perience. Little by little we gained more
knowledge, and with it confidence. We
called in men of experience to investigate,
assist and advise, and have sought far and
wide for all the information that would en
able the Government to deal intelligently
and humanely with a great calamity affect
ing the health of the people. In the en
deavor to conquer or control this malady
by segregation and care at Kalawao alone,
the Government has expended during the
last t went 3' years no less a sum than
$ 013.75H. To this must be added the cost of
the establishment and current expenses of
the Branch Hospital during a period of
four jTears, amounting, including medical
services and various incidental expenses,
to a total of atoit f 1,000,000. The Govern
ment now expends in the care and promo
tion of the health of the people at least one
tenth of its annual revenues of the King
dom. I cannot recall to mind any other
count rjT in the civilized world that can in
comparison make such an unhappy state
ment, and yet one which is so much to the
credit of the humanity of the nation. The
mind of the Legislator and philanthropist
can rise to no nobler work than to benefit
the sick and helpless of his fcllowmen. and
care for the general health of the people.
Such is, and ever should be, the foremost
aim of those who are entrusted bj' His
Majesty with then administration of the
affairs of this Kingdom.
This is not the occasion and I am not
a proper authority to consider the path
ology and etiology of leprosj', or to express
a decided opinion upon the question of
contagion and consequent segregation. 1
utq -,sn .sitat'" - V"-'v' coring that
tne question is one that has a remo.r
interest than what is popularly entertained,
especially abroad, inasmuch as while ad
mitting that the malady is contagious un
der the most favorable conditions, 3'et it
does not seem to be more so than many
common diseases, the result of an im
paired condition of blood, which are gener
ally accepted as being non-contagious, and
on I j' become so tnrougn peculiarly laor
able and strongl3' corresponding circum
stances. Certainly there is nothing in the
history of the disease, or attaching to it,
to cause the foreigners visiting our shores
to be in the slightest degree apprehensive
of danger, inasmuch as only seven out of
about eight hundred lepers now cared lor
in our hospitals are foreigners, who have
all been long resident in the country. It is
very hopeful, also, to bear in mind, upon
this occasion especiall3', that the medical
wisdom of the world is being daily increased
and enriched hy patient research and
assiduous study, that man3T diseases long
deemed incurable, and the causes of which
were long thought to be untraceable, inde
finable ami inexplicable, have been brought
under medical subjection by the concentra
tion of the intellectual forces of the age.
So may it be with the mysterious malady
of leprosj. 1 trust that modern scientific
investigation will solve the problem that
has puzzled the world for ages and as far
back as humanity possesses records and
In this -Kingdom every effort is being
made under the direction of His Majesty's
Government In' able men and devoted
women, working in the midst of the dread
ful disease itself, to unravel its mysteries
and to soften its horrors. Not only are
they by their faithful efforts striving to
ameliorate the condition of our own peo
ple, but thej' are gathering light and com
piling valuable data and information to be
sent forth for the benefit of the sufferers of
other nations. Bv exchange and com
parison of cases and experiments with the
other leper afflicted sections of the earth,
important and beneficial results are surety,
if slowlj, lxmnd to ensue. These Islands
are watched with a livel3 interest in tin
connection, and in this great lalor the
Kingdom of Hawaii, limited tho' she is in
area, opulation and wealth, marches
nobl3' and creditably along side by side
with the most enlightened and influential
nations. Mr personal observation leads
me to believe that we have passed through
the worst of this disease, and that there is
every reason to hope that it viiulence is
now on the decline. I am led to judge so
from the fact that of the tot;;l number of
cases sent to tbe Leper Settlement and to
the Branch Hospital during my tenure of
office, since May, 1.SS0, bar.-ly three per
cent of the number indicate in origin more
recent than within one or two year-.
Let me now pass more directly i. the af
fair on hand. We all ' appreciate most
deeply the injurious effect tin- malady has
had upon this nation. More e-i-c iuily has
the condition and the future the chil
dren affected by it tou.-hed tin. !i. :li ts and
won the sympathy id" ..U f it.i p. . -le. It
was felt by all vvh. ! tv cu He red the
matter to be alnu.-t an outrage that the
young children, and especially the girls,
the children of leprous parents only sus
pected of being tainted and yet giving no
Signs, but the rather giving evidence of
being qualified to acquit themselves well in
the career of life, should be doomed to
lose their opportunities, and le forced to
associate with tho?e only in whom the
malady had pronounced itself. Conse
quently the idea of a home for such un
fortunates seemed an appropriate sugges
tion. Whenspokenof.it at once engaged
the warm sympathies and interest of Her
Majesty the Queen. Such an establish
ment seemed to be both feasible and advan
tageous, and I had the honor myself to
propose in the Legislative body of 1S84 the
advisability of founding a refuge to be
styled the "Kapiolani Home," and toad
vise a vote for the appropriation of ?15,00u
for its establishment. In view of the action
of the Legislative body and of the great in
terest to the people in the establishment' of
such an institution, it was thought proper
to lay the matter before the community to
enable the generous and charitable to par
ticipate in the benevolent enterprise. A
ready response was made, characteristic of
an ever-generous public, and the liberal
sum of $o575 has been subscribed for the
Home by Their Majesties and the foreign
residents of Honolulu. With the means in
hand I, with the sanction of my colleagues
of the Board of Health, was enabled to
enter upon the construction of this building
in which we are now seated, and which
to-day is hereby, by the presence and wish
of Their Majesties the King and Queen, to
be dedicated to the care and training of
young girls not confirmed lepers, but who
are suspected of the taint of the disease.
Many persons have regretted, and some
what naturally, that such a home could not
have been established in some choicer loca
tion, more remote from those who are un
happily suffering under the worst forms of
the incurable malady. But under the sur
rounding circumstances this could not be,
however much the fact may be regretted.
The Government were well assured that
for the the proper and beneficial adminis
tration of such a home it was necessary
that it should be cared for by women, who,
with all the knowledge, and experience and
apprehensions connected with such a fear
ful malady, would be willing to take charge
of the home. Ladies of this noble and self
denying type of whom 1 have already
spoken were already in charge within
these hospital grounds. As with their aid
alone it was possible to cany out the idea
of such a home, and as their number was
not sufficient for a division of forces, it was
found to be absolutely necessary to place
the home here within this enclosure, where
it is possible for the Sisters of Charity to
give their attention to it along with the
care of the other lepers. And here the
Home has been erected, and of its details
you can judge. The building has been well
constructed, and fitted to lodge convenient
ly", with a view to their health and comfort,
about fifty girls. Here, although tabued
from the general societ3r of other children.
they may enjoy all the advantages that
may be obtained b3r health3" girls in a well
ordered boarding school establishment
With my experience of the past two 3'ears
of the labors of the Sisters in this Hospital,
I entertain bright hopes of a result the
most satisfactory to the most exacting
philanthrophist's mind and desires.
In the establishing of benevolent insti
tutions for the sick and infirm of all kind,
it should be remembered that they are not
so established on the promise or assurance
or the belief that the infirm will be cured
or restored to societ3"; but it is ever the
hope and the desire of Ch"""' TT "7
.1 . xti their condition be
ameliorated and human suffering relieved;
and that those who have left their homes
and f riei.'ds under such sad and distressing
conditions, and almost weighed down with
despair, may, with kind and considerate
treatment, be led to enjoy life to the ex
treme degree permitted by their afflictions
without the possibility of their being in
jurious to their fellow beings. Thus, then,
we have not founded our Leper Institu
tions any more than we have founded
this Home with any assurance of cure
ami restoration to home and family; but
as we have seen within this Hospital en
closure those who, but a while ago,
showed too visible marks of this loath
some disease, and were dragging out a
most miserable, horrible and gloomj ex
istence under the most unfavorable cir
cumstances, very much improved in per
sonal appearance, and not merel3r con
tented, but cheerful, and I might almost
say happy if it were permitted to any in
such a condition to be happ3" and so we
have rea-on to hope for a greatlj' improved
condition of the girls placed in this Home
under the care of the Sisters.
The pli3'sicians forbid us to hope for
cures here; but fortunately their adverse
opinions do not for one moment deter the
faithful workers engaged in their labor of
love, inspired by Him who healed the
lepers, from pursuing their kindly minis
trations, their self-allotted work being
largelj- to serve those who are without
hope and without friends.
My task is ended, but let me add a few
won Is. Hawaii has taken her stand among
the nations. We are honored b3' the Sov
ereign Pmvc-is of the earth. Our size is not
regarded so much as our spirit our spirit
of enterprise and justice. We are invited
to the councils of nations to consider ques
tions of international interest. We are
guided and inspired 1)3' ar sentiment of na
tional independence in the promotion of
all public measures, whether of agricul
ture, of immigration, or of commerce, and
in all our diplomatic relations. And the
nations of the earth honor our King and
this Kingdom for the attitude we take.
But there is one thing in our course and
action for which, I appreciate, the enlight
ened lowers and philanthropic thinkers of
the world will honor us beyond any thing
else, and that will be the care and interest
we take in sufferers among our people;
and that King Kalakaua and the Govern
ment of Ilia Majesty make it a chief fea
ture of their public action and policy to ,
provide for, to comfort and nourish the
tulnjoed outcasts the hopeless and helpless j
sick of their country. Applause
At the conclusion of the speech, which
was well received throughout, the native
children sang a song, "Hoe a Mau" ("Pull
for the Shore"), with band accompani
ment. The voices of the children were
sweet and melodious, and they apparently
entered into it with much spirit.
FORMAL OPEXINO OF THE HOME.
His Excellency Mr. Gibson then stepped
forward and presented the keys of the
Home to Her Majesty the Queen on a vel
vet cushion. He said: In fulfillment of
the commands of His. Maje-ty, and 1

then said: "By command of His Majesty

hearts of all. The Rev. J. Kauvva, one of
the inmates of Kakaako, yvho yvas to de
