BOARD OF HEALTH MEETING Little Enthusiasm Over Work of Dr. Goto. Kxperiuient Station Soon to be Opened. 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 is to arrive here not later than 1. 1898. and receive a mm j j salary of $200 a month. 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. Dr. Wood announced that Dr. Wayson had been appointed tem porary physician in charge of the experiment station, and they were ready for the thirteen boys who were to be sent down from the set tlement. An application from Dr. Charles N. Castle, resident physician of the 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 was accepted. 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. STEEL RAIL SHIPMENT. The Robert Lewers Will Bring 1 r iraii uuk wr iauu nauiuau.
