Startling Figures on Death
Return in England and Wales Is
For a Cure-
NEW YORK, Jan. 4. A Lodon cable
to the Sun says: The address of Dr.
William Broadbent, president of the
Society for the Prevention of Con
sumption, contains the following start
"We learn from the returns of the
Registrar-General that nearly 00,000
deaths are every year registered as due
to tuberculosis in England and Wales
alone, and to t this number may be
added a considerable percentage of the
deaths set down to acute affections of
the lungs, in which tubercle has played
an unrecognized part. Of these over
40,000 are from consumption, 6000 from
"The destructive work of tubeculosis
does not ed here; 5400 deaths are at
tributed to other forms of tuberculosis,
among which are diseases of the bones,
humpback, hip-joint disease, disease of
the knee, ankle, elbow, wrist and other
joints -which cripple or disable so many
children are the sign maual cf the tu
bercle." The society has decided to investi
gate the report of a new cure which
has come from St. Petersburg. Dr. Lov
sky has been making experiments with
natrum cinnamylicum, for which he
announcas- wonderful results. At a
meeting of the Russian Society of Me
dicine Dr. Lovsky recently gave partic
ulars of five cases upon which he had
produced visible effects by injections
of natrum cinnamylicum.
SAVE THE MINAfl.
A Citizen of Olaa Writes of the
Editor P. C. A. In a recent issue of
your paper I notice a paragraph in be
half of the mynah it being stated as thje
opinion of the Secretary of the Board
of Agriculture, Mr. Clarke, that this
bird is of immense value to Hawaiian
agriculture. May I beg space for a few
words confirmatory of Mr. Clarke's
opinion. Since my stay in Hawaii I
have had excellent opportunities to ob
serve the habits of the mynah in the
coffee districts of Olaa, in Hilo and in
the adjoining sugar plantations, and I
feel sure that -the benefits conferred by
the mynah far outweigh the injury it
does. The mynah prefers an open
country to forest and settled districts
to the wilderness. It is therefore ex
ceedingly abundant on the sugar plan
tations and in all pasture lands. If
anyone doubts the value of the mynah
in such localities he has but to shoot a
few and examine the stomachs. These
will be found crammed with insects,
most of which are positively injurious
to the farmer and the cane grower.
On the other hand the orchardist and
the small fruit grower have roem to
dislike the mynah for while they pro
fit by the war it wages upon insect
pests they lose by its fondness for
fruits, especially figs. So too there
se-ems to be just ground for complaint
against the mynah in Olaa where it is
generally believed, probably not with
out good reason, that the mynahs carry
into the coffee patches the seeds of
Hilo grass and of other weeds. The
birds thus prove a serious nuisance
since they add materially to the annual
cost of weeding.
The course that naturally suggests
itself is to kill the birds where they
do injury and preserve them where
they are beneficial. In this connection
I may state that the dead bodies of two
or three mynahs hung in a fig tree
have a wonderful effect in destroying
the. appetite for figs of their sorrowing
relatives. The mynah is a "knowing
cuss," as Artemas Ward called the
crow, and is quick to read an object
In conclusion like every other bird
in its relation to agriculture the any
nan has good and bad traits, but I be
lieve with Mr. Clarke that when every
thing is summed up the "balance will
be found to be largely in the bird's
favor and that, now it has been intro
duced into these Islands it should be
The selection of birds for introduc
tion into these Islands is a matter that
should receive the most careful atten
tion, and no species should be allowed
to be imported that has not been sanc
tioned by authority.
Already several species have been in
troduced that should have been most
Here an ounce of prevention is worth
an unlimited number of pounds of cure.

Olaa, Hawaii, Jan. 14, 1S99.
MADRID. Jan. 2 Official circles
here are warmly discussing the atti-
tude of Great Britain owing to her
pressing demand that Spain sell her a
coaling station in the Balearis Islands
and other strategical points, so as to
render Gibraltar unassailable. The ne
gotiations on the subject have been in
abeyance owing to Premier Sagasta's
illness, but it is believed that Spain,
influenced by Russia and France, will
resist the demand of Great Britain.
WASHINGTON, Jan. C The recal
ling of E. Spencer Pratt, Consul at
Singapore, is the first case of discip
lining for too great ardor in service
during the war. Pratt was one of the
most active of the Consuls who took
part in the preliminary negotiations
with Aguinaldo which led to the insur
gents being given such prominence in
the campaign. The State Department
believes that Pratt went too far and
that, as indicated by letters in the pos
session of Agoncillo, unwarranted
promises made at that time are now
The State Department is considering
the same action in the cases of Wild
man, Consul at Hongkong, and Wil
liams, at Manila. Williams, as shown
by letters made public today, did much
to give Aguinaldo so much importance,
and, without doubt, led the insurgents
to believe there would be full freedom
and independence granted them. His
recall is expected soon.
