In October, 1S95, ho was elected grand

holder ot one of the three golden keys
which open the Ark of tho Covenant.
Ho held tho key for the Southern Judiciary,

is elected, -which will not bo

If the admissions of the leper who
arrived on the China are to be tskn
for truth there is good reason to believe
that the board of health ot the
city of Saa Francisco has taken more
than a passive part In a conspiracy
to unload Its lepers upon 'the Hawaiian
people without as much, as saylnz,
"by ypnr leave-" jp
It can be readily understood ho
keen any locality must be to get rid
of the victims of leprosy, the most
dreaded of all human afflictions. Ever
since the davs of old Jerusalem, when
the lepers were separated from their
untainted relatives, has there, been a
strong desire to partition them oif
and many times to drive them away in
hunger from all succor to a pitiable
and speedy deatS. In some of the barbaric
days of the ancients the poor
unfortunates were killed outright as
indeed, in the days of the Spartans,
were persons of under size and not
But this is an age of civilization, a
period when the Christian world is
supposed to live in the example of
that teacher who held the afflicted
and the accursed to be the peer of any
if only certain conditions were complied
with. The numerous scrlptunl
accounts of the banishment of the
scourge of leprosy. .nnd, as so realistically
described in Ben Hur only go
to show that one exemplar of the better
impulses of mankind went bravely
about the duty He owed .to. His fellow
creatures who were Irretrievably
beyond the bane of human aid.
In n modern case has the leprosv
question been handled in a courageous
fashion. When many years, ago the
disease was Imported here by the Chinese
immigrants the Hawaiian people
did not send the afflicted to California
or Australia or Siberia but propared a
hnvrn for their shelter at the expense
of many thousands of dollars. Having
done this act, in itself all that man
in self protection can do, it comes of
poor grace from a neighboring city
whose vitality so much depends upon
the wealth of the Hawaiian Islands to
countenance the sending of this sufferer
perhaps as a fore runner of
manv more to follow.
Supposing that the leper came here
without the knowledge of the San
Francisco health officers, which he dis
tinctly says ho did not do, would it
not be as sure as night follows day
that one by ono the other lepers fron
California and Louisiana would soou
aegin to arrive in Honolulu as fast as
ships could bring them?
The statement that the leper Pratt,
has the kind of lepro
sy mny well be taken with a grain of
salt as his first statement that he
came here direct from New Orleans
did not long stand the test It may be
non-contagious as he says, and again
there, may be no such thing for eminent
authority has disputed it.
Let the San Francisco authorities
go about their duties in a more open
and manly spirit, if they really have
countenanced the migration of this
man, and they will avoid a disgrace
that will not wear ofr nor be foi gotten
in a day.
No Right to Complain.
From the. San Francisco Chronicle.
If the native Hawaiians have turned
the tables on the white residents
of the islands they have triumphed
through the legitimate exercise of
their rights as American citizens, and
no one has any just right to complain.
The Hawaiian Election.
tFrom the San Francisco Chronicle.
The result of the congressional election
in Hawaii is the choice of a political
agitator of mixed blood as the
delegate to congress. Such a result
is unfortunate in many respects, as the
delegate from tho Islands is likely to
have little iniluence In Congress, not
ov reason ot his mixed blood but be
cause- of his personal record.
He has not the confidence ot th"
business men of the Islands, who are
considering the question or maintaining
an unofficial representative at
Washington to look after the Jmsiness
interests of the islands. Another possible
result which would bo very undesirable
is a political alignment on
racial lines in future elections, which,
however, may not happen.
But, on the other hand, we may
obtain from this election some valuable
political lessons. The native element
in Hawaii, although numerically
the largest, is the weak element, and
it is not at all undesirable that these
people shall have a hearing. It is not
certain that the whites would not take
undue advantage of the natives f
they have the opportunity, and it Ts
well to hear all that they have to say.
The history ot the delegate chosen
indicates 'that it will always be necessary
to carerully Verify hlsstatements,
but at any rate we shallsknow, when
we get through, that nothing which
could bo said against the present Ha
waiian administration has been omit
ted. Another useful result will be the
opportunity which it may afford to
study tho effects of Intrusting an is
land race with the responsibilities of
The "independents," as the native
party is called, come very near controlling
tho legislature. In some cases
they fused with the democrats, and of
independents and fusionists there is a
clear majority in both houses. The
white element has always been able to
control the legislature, regardless of
the number of native members, and
, it will be instructive to watch the
course of Its legislation. .No harm to
business interests can. come from positive
legislation, as the governor has
an ample veto power, and there is always
congress to fall back upon it absolutely
necessary a power, however,
which ought never to be called in it
it can be avoided. The Hawaiian
tires have no such political capacity
as the more civilized tribes or the
Philippines, and are immeasurably less
vigorous. Nevertheless, we should 1
