The first response to the sub
scription for the leper band comes
from Captain Cochrane, of the
American cruiser Philadelphia.
The captain has always been inter
ested in the unfortunates on the
island of Molokai, and offers an
opportunity for contribution which
ought to receive hearty co-operation.
The Czar of Russia has taken
steps to abolish the use of the lash
by local judges. Though this
method of punishment has long
been prohibited by law, statistics
have been produced proving that
more than 3000 persons during the
past few years were either flogged
to death or died from the after
effects. It will be a hard task to
wipe out this favorite method of
punishment, but the young Czar
will be forgiven many of his des
potic shortcomings if he succeeds
in mitigating this relic of barbarism.

Since the friends of A. P. Peter
son have seen fit to give voice to
reports reflecting upon the treat
ment which he received while con
fined in the police station, it is
highly proper that the Deputy
Marshal should take official notice
of the statements. Stories grow as
they pass from mouth to mouth,
and now it is said that many of the
prisoners could not eat their meals
on account of the odors that per
vaded the place. Very likely if a
little more time were given, a much
more disagreeable state of affairs
could be invented. We believe
these reports, some of which are
incorrect, are given in such a form
as to convey an impression entirely
at variance with facts. The un
initiated might well infer that the
Honolulu police station is an un
derground stronghold reeking with
moisture and pestilence, which is
as far from the truth as is possible.
We would reiterate the first state
ment published in this paper that
the cells are clean, well aired and
well lighted, and furthermore, that
the accommodations in the
station for prisoners will
compare favorably with those
in the average city of the United
States or any other country.
None of the prisoners were treat
ed as common drunks or even as
criminals. They were allowed to
receive food or whatever their
friends saw fit to send them to add
to their comforts, and if their phys
ical condition required it, the at
tendance of physicians. Whether
the term of life of any of the politi
cal prisoners was lengthened or
shortened by the confinement no
one can say ; but we do know that
all possible protection against dis
ease or deleterious effects which
might result from the detention
was given the political prisoners.
There is now in prison a man
whose physician has told him that
under any circumstances he should
leave the country for a different
climate. The prisoner has had the
option of going but he has refused
to accept it. Should this action
result fatally, will the Government
be brought to account for damp
cells and poor food? It would be
