BOARD OF HEALTH MEETING

Tenders for Beef Many Physi
cians Make Application.
The Retard of Health held its
regular session yesterday after
noon. After the reading of the
minutes President Smith read a
letter to Dr. Hale offering him the
position of physician in charge of
ffiA lener experiment station. Me

Superintendent Meyers Hubmit
mitted a report upon kokuas.
A report of Dr. Goto was read in
which nine lepers were reported
cured, two discharged from the
settlement, six died and eighteen
as having giver, up the treatment.
Drs. Moritz and Oliver reported
that of eighty-five patients under
Dr. Goto's care none had been
cured and few had shown any
benefit derived from the treatment ,
Dr. Wood aBked for a place to
keep the records and documents of
the various committees. Mr. Smith
suggested a portion of the old leg
islative hall as it was practically
decided that both houses of the
legislature would meet in the Exe
cutive building. Filing cabinets
and a room to keep them were
necessary. The committee on lep
rosy was authorized to make such
arrangement a3 they thought feasi
ble. Rules for the management of the
Baldwin home were read and
adopted after slight amendment.
H. P. Baldwin was the only one
putting in tenders to furnish beef
for the settlement. His bid of $18
per head was accepted.
Thomas K. Nathaniel's applica
tion for the position of school
teacher was referred to Mr. Meyers.

Cincinnati hospital, to fill any va
cancy that might occur at the set
tlement, was placed on file, as were
also the applications of Dr. H. L.
Wood, Dr. W. N. Finney of Lin
coln, Cal., and Drs. Green and
Luce, of Pasadena.
The committee on insane asylum
reported the proposal of the Hono
lulu Iron Works to place improved
locks in the doors for $490. This
IN A DIFFERENT LIGHT.
Mr. Gear Regards the Cell Occupied
by Mr. Peterson.
Mk. Editor: Kindly allow me
space in your paper for a few lines
in answer to the article in this
morning's issue headed "Cells Dry
and Comfortable." The cell at the
Station House in which the late A.
P. Peterson "pased the time during
his confinement," is one of the poor
est at the Station House. It is the
oii.e in which former officials have
been accustomed to pat the low
drunks brought in from the streets.
I furnished Mr. Peterson with read
ing matter during his confinement,
but when he was removed to the
Station House he told me that there
was no use in sending him any more
books or papers, as the cell in which
he was confined was too dark, and
that he could not see to read. On
the morning of the day of his release
he was so weak that he could hardly
stand, and was under medical care
until his departure.
I dislike very much appearing in
public print, but yonr reporter's
statement of this morning seemed
to call for an answer; for while the
cell might have appeared to yonr
reporter "roomy, well aired, and
scrupulously clean" its condition
and dampness is well known by
those acquainted with the Station
House and the cell's location.
Thanking you for your space, I
remain, Yours respectfully,
April 5, '95. A. V. Gear.
