WHY? o o GEE EM MM The report of Elsa V. Grubb, super intendent of the Hilo hospital, read at the Board of Health mreting yester day, shows that institution to be rath er an expensive luxury. On July 31 there were 5 inmates. During the month 7 patients had been admitted, 8 discharged and 1 died. Divided as to nationalities, there were 4 Hawaii ans, 3 Europeans, 1 Chinese and 5 Jap anese. Of the 13 cases treated 4 were non paying, 7 ward-paying and .2 private paying. Three were under the care of the regular staff, 7 under the care of Dr. Grace of the honorary staff and, 3 under the care of Dr. Rice. The amount of money received from the paying patients was $155, while the expenses of the institution for the month, including pay-rolls, amounted to $779.99, of which $199.24 only was for supplies. In answer to questions put at the meeting yesterday, Dr. Moore acknowl edged that the amount of money re ceived from paying patients about paid their expenses. It appears, therefore, that it cost $612.99 to treat the four non-paying patients, or an average of $153 each per month. After discussing these figures the board yesterday instructed its secre tary to write to the superintendent of the hospital that its expenses must be cut down to at least $100 per montn for the remaining five months of the biennial period, this sum to include extra pay-rolls. When the Hilo hospital was pro jected and before it was built the citi zens of that city were profuse in their promises to the Board of Health of what they would do towards its sup port. They would furnish the building throughout, $50 a month was all they would ask from the Government, local contributions had been assured, and such like representations were made, not one of which has been fulfilled. In this connection George W. Smith called the attention of the board to the fact that the average monthly expenses I of the Queen's Hospital were only from $2,500 to $3,000.

Eight were in the hospital one week or less, 2 two weeks or less, 8 one month or less, 5 two months or less and 4 over three months. The cash receipts of this hospital for J two months were $253.50, of which $30 was from Father Libert for board of two Sisters, $93 for ward patients and $129 for Wailuku plantation cases. For the corresponding period the ex penses for sundries were $294.71 and pay-rolls $187, or a total of $481.71. Two hundred and thirty-five dollars was remitted to the president of the Board of Health by Sister Bonaventure at the end of the month. An Injunction Dissolved.
