Papers Peai by Dr. S. Eay and Wood of the Butonic Plague Beri fceri Next- The Medical Association met at the office of Dr. Meyer last Saturday even ing. The subject for the evening's dis cussion was the bubonic plague, a top ic full of interest at present on account of the plague which has been raging in Hongkong. Dr. C. B. Wood read the first paper. He was admirably qualified to speak, both on account of his thorough study of the subject and his personal obser vation of its ravages. He went into the history of the disease and gave statistics showing its enormous death rate. He vividly described the great plague of 1S94, during which time he was in the Orient and had opportuni ty for observing the "black death" in all its forms. Dr. Day followed with a discussion of the treatment of the plague.. The most successful and what seems to be the coming method was discovered by a German physician stationed in In dia by the English Government. It consists of inoculation of serum into the infected person, and is very simi lar to the vaccination in case of small pox. Remarkable results have been obtained in this treatment which has produced beneficial results when the patients have been in the worst stages of the plague. The doctor gave an in teresting description of the cases which came under his notice only a few months ago, when the first infected steamer arrived. A general discussion followed among all present. The following were in at tendance: Dr. C. 13. Cooper, president; Dr. Garvin, eccretary; Drs. Day, Wood, Bowman, Alvarez, Thompson, Ray mond, Meyers, Rhodes, Cleveland, Sloggett, Emerson, May, Wood, Hoff man; Miss Kerr and Mr. Atherton, medical students. Tim subject for the next meeting will be -Meri-beri." v More Emigrants. Both the Japan Times and Gazette of August V? note the departure of 500 emigrants, raised by the Hiroshima Emigration Company from Yokohama on August 18 by the Canadian Paci lie steamer Empress of China. In the shipping -columns of both papers this steamer as mentioned as sailing direct for Yokohama,, hence it may be that the vessel will call here on her return trip and land the coolies. The Galicians. ThirO'-six Galician contract laborers sentenced to imprisonment for non performance of their contracts, were released from Oahu prison on Saturday at the request of H. HackfeJd & Co., agents of the Oahu plantation, on which they vere formerly employed.
