A verbal request from the wife of a
leper to send her only child, a gifl

Home for girls, was read. This re
quest was considered a peculiar one
and was opposed by several member-r
of the oBard and peremptorally denied.
Petition of Kinau, a property owner
in the cholera district of last year, for
permission to occupy one of his dwell
ings and rent the others was read.
President Smith stated that these
houses were condemned last year and
had not been occupied since. Kinau,
the petitioner, is a man who is really
poor and unable to earn a livelihood,
and asks to be allowed to rent two of
the dwellings and occupy one.
The Board has been pajTing his rent
for a year past, but he needed some
thing more than that. The president
stated that the land is a marsh spot,
but that he did not believe the place
was unhealthy. The place was con

He declared this was unauthorized and
he resented it. He had no time to at
tend to births, deaths or marriages.
The Board of Education reported
that there was no Government phy
sician in the district of Hanalei, and
that the orders of the Board of Health
regarding the examination of school
children could not be carried out. It
was decided by the Board to offer Dr.

X'o. 210 West Fourth Street.
New York, U. S. A., Sept. 12. ISM.
President W. O. Smith, Board of Health,
Dear Sir D. Goklschmult, late of Ma
dena, now at Paris, in a letter to me, last
December, proposed that a Congress of
leprogists should be held for the sup
pression and prevention of leprosy. In a
letter I wrote to Dr. Armauer Hansen, I
referred to this proposition and suggested
the formation of an international com
m.ttee, one delegate from each govern
ment, to be permanently active, to meet
once a year, and to take cognizance of all
questions and problems relating to lepro
sy, all over the world. 1 also suggested
the collection of a fund, In every country,
for th use of this committee, to support
asylums, where such help is wanted, and
to send specialists wherever they are need
ed. Dr. Hansen, at once received these
overtures with favor and submitted them
to his chief, who in turn, communicated
them to the Norwegian Government. In
his answer to me Dr. Hansen said that
it was the desire of the Norwegian phy
sicians that the seat of the first leprosy
congress should be Berger, Norway, and
that the Norwegian Government was will
ing to issue the call for the first leprosy
congress, provided It had assurances of
sympathy from other governments. I at
once applied to President Cleveland, to
Her British Majesty, to the Emperor of
Germany, to President Diaz of Mexico, to
L.ord Aberdeen of Canada, to the Japanese
and Chinese Governments, and to all the
Republics of South America. 1 also sub
mitted this scheme to the American Deo
matological Association, to the American
Public Health Association (of Canada, the
United States and Mexico), and to Miss
Clara Barton, the President of the Amer
ican Red Cross Society. It is to be com
municated also to the Pope through Arch
bishop Corrigan. It is desired that every
( influence that may exist, of any kind, be
brought to bear upon the different gov
ernments so that they may consent to ap
point official delegates. Of course lepro
logists in their private capacity, or as
representatives of associations, will be
united, and are expected to attend. The
l committee, formed by the delegates, will
v ' ..." .
be exclusively concernea with the pro
mulgation and application of laws suit
able to the suppresion and prevention of
leprosy in each country, leaving the dis
cussion of questions of etiology, bacteri
ology cure, etc., to the specialists. This
is the plan as it stands now, and as it was
submitted by me to Dr. Goldschmidt. Dr.
Goldschmidt, in his reply, has suggested
that Moscow be the seat of congress, as
the International Congress is to meet
there next year. This is open to the fol
lowing objections: 1st. If the leprosy
congress is held in Moscow, along with the
regular International Congress, it will of
! necessity fall into position of secondary
1 influence, and will be in fact only a section
' of the General Congress. 2nd. Hansen is
I entitled to claim the first leprosy congress;
j he being the discover of the lepro bacilus.
' 3rd. The Norwegian Government having
' been the first to express a willingness to
I issue the call (which should be issued by
a government, not by individuals), is en
i titled to the honor. 4th. If the congress
j is now ta.ken to Moscow, after the Norwe
i gian physicians have expressed a desire
' to have it in Norway, before even Mos
j cow was suggested, the Norwegian phy
i sicians will certainly take offence: a lepro
j sy congress without Ifansen cannot well
j be imagined.
j Will you kindly publish this letter and
' ask the leprologists of Hawaii to com
i municate to the Provisional Committee of
j the Congress as it exists: Dr. G. Armauer
Hansen, Bergen, Norway; Dr. Jules tjold-
schmidt, 4 Rue Dannan, Paris, France; Dr.
Albert S. Ashmead. West Fourth St., New
j York, their own ideas about this great
j scheme, and to offer such suggestions as
may help to advance it. May we hope also
that you will use your own influence to
' obtain from your government as assur
j ance of its willingness to appoint a dele
gate ana neip to maKe me nrsi iep"j
congress a success.
Very truly yours,
ALBERT S. ASHMEAD, M.D.
The matter was referred to commit
tee on treatment of leprosy. A letter
from Dr. Eldredge was read regarding
the charges for hotel accommodations
and medical examination ai Kusatsu
Mineral Springs, Japan. This is a place
where foreigners and Japanese are
treated for leprosy and skin diseases.
When Dr. Wood was at the Springs he
obtained samples of the water, which
he brought here. As it is considered
an important matter, Dr. Wood was to
procure a chemical analysis of it.

MEETING OF THE
Some Important Business At
tended to Yesterday.
TWO APPLICATIONS WERE TABLED
Reforms at the Reform School- Manual De
partment Suggestions by Mr. Dumas.
One School Closed -Some Changes Nec
sary in Grade ' Schools Work to go on.
There were present at the Board of
Education meeting yesterday afternoon
Minister Cooper, Prof. Alexander, Mrs.
Dillingham, Mrs. Jordan, J. F. Scott
and C. T. Rodgers, secretary.
The minutes of the previous meeting
were read and approved.
Prof. Alexander reported that he had
conferred with Mr. Holmes of the
Bishop estate, who said that he would
send a letter to the Board authorizing
Mr. Paris, the school agent, who was
their agent in Kona, to allow him to
select a site for the new Hauamau
school house. He also reported that he
had agreed with Mr. Dillingham for a
lot at Pearl City, fronting on Third
street, of an acre and a half, where a
suitable building could be constructed
for that district.
J. F. Scott showed a book of blank
forms for teachers' certificates, and he
recommended that it be adopted, which
was moved and carried.
A request of J. Smith of Koloa, Ka
uai, to lease a lot which belonged to
the Board and was not in use at pres
ent, was refused, as the Board may
need it soon.
Minister Cooper had made inquiries
about starting some industrial work
at the reform school, and found it
could be accomplished easily. The Ex
ecutive also was in favor of an indus
trial branch, and recommended that
$500 be expended in making the ar
The matter of those who were delin
quent in payment for their tuition at
the Emma Street school was brought
up. Minister Cooper thought that all
such persons should be sent to Arm
strong Smith's school. In the discus
sion which followed, the fact was
brought out that there was some feel
ing that there ought to be two schools
of the same high grade and competent
teachers, but one should be a little
more select than the other. The grades
in Mr. Smith's school now correspond
with about seventh grade in the High
School. Mr. Scott was instructed to ob
tain a complete list of all the pupils in
both schools, and state which ones are
Freitas, the young boy at the reform
school, was ordered to be released, as
there was really nothing at all criminal
in the lad.
Mr. Dumas asked permission of the
Board, which was granted, to explain
to them a few things in connection
with the Practice School. He had three
recommendations tu make: First, that
boys and girls should be allowed to at
tend, as it would give the young
teachers a better opportunity of learn
ing how to manage a class when they
come to teach in the public schools;
second, that there would be two grades
in each of the two rooms, consisting of
an entrance class, First reader, begin
ning Second reader and ending Third
In this way it will be harder on the
regular teachers, but will .give more
practice for the student teachers, and
they will have fewer pupils to attend
to during the recitations. No person
commencing to teach should have more
than twenty-four pupils at a time.
Third, that the buildings should be
fenced in and kept separate from the
rest of the buildings on the ground.
Highest cf all in Leavening Power. Latest U.S. Gov't Report
The pupils for this school are to bo
obtained from the primary classes of
the other schools. It will be a difficult
matter in some cases; if they take from
the Royal School they will have to
have the teachers take a higher grade
than the one they are now teaching.
Mr. Scott was authorized to obtain
an estimate of the cost of putting up
An application from Mr. Barton and
one from C. H. White for the position
of assistant at the reformatory school
Mr. Meyers was authorized to close
one school on Molokai until a suitable
teacher could be found.
Mr. Swain of Hamakua was given a
raise to $50 a month in his salary.
Mr. Scott reported that the school
house at Maemae was all ready except
the doors and windows, and as they
had not come on the Australia, It was
decided not to wait any longer for
them, but to go ahead and complete

Large Attendance of Relatives and Friends.
Crowds Along the Line -Band
and Police Escort.
The funeral services of the late Jo
seph Nawahi were held in the family
homestead, Palama, shortly before 1
o'clock yesterday. The house and the
grounds were crowded with relatives
and friends of the deceased, and vari
ous societies of which he was a mem
ber, long before the hour announced
for the funeral.
Rev. Timeoto delivered an eulogy
over the remains, in which he dwelt
upon the sterling qualities of Mr. Na
wahi, and the love he had for his
country. During his address the people
congregated paid close attention and
many of them were visibly affected.
At half past one the cortege left
the house, headed by the Hawaiian
Band and a detachment of police un-'
der Captain Parker. Thfn came Un
dertaker Williams in a carriage drawn
by four black horses. Following walk

The procession marched down King
to Fort to the Kinau wharf where the
casket, draped with an Hawaiian flag,
was carried on board the steamer
Hawaii for transportation to Hilcfo
where the interment will take place.
With the exception of that of the
late Governor Dominis the funeral'
yesterday wfs the largest ever seenfc,
in Honolul a except in the roj-al fami

nature. Occasionally some of the old

praises of the deceased and at the
wharf it was kept up incessantly
Accident at Ewa.
A Japanese laborer on the Ewa plan
tation jumped from the front end of a
flat car when he was within a few
yards of his destination yesterday af
ternoon and fell under the wheels.
Before the train could be stopped both
trucks passed over his legs. The phy
sician at hand bandaged him as well
as possible and had the man sent to
Honolulu on the plantation train. He
reached the city at 7 o'clock and was
removed to Queen's Hospital, where
amputation was found necessary. His
recovery is doubtful.
