Now German Hinni-cly feulil to llo. nn Almost
I'crliiln Curt * .
A representative of the New York Board
of Health has Just returned from a trip
abroad , made for the purpose of Investigat
ing a new German remedy that Is said to
be almost a certain cure for diphtheria , says
Harper's Weekly. His report Is so enthusi
astic that our authorities are to be asked
to establish a laboratory for development
of the remedy here. The outcome will be
awaited with anxious Interest by every one
who fully understands how much Is at stake.
Diphtheria Is the moat malignant member
cf a Email group of contagious diseases ( the
other members being scarlet fever , measles
and whooping cough ) whose virulence Is In
a measure masked by their very familiarity.
These diseases are never altogether absent
from centers of population. Year by year they
cause thousands of deaths , yet their presence
excites little popular comment. They are
responsible for the death of every sixth
child under 5 yeais of age and every twelfth
person of any age who dies In New York City.
In the decade 1S82-1S91 this quartet of dis
eases claimed 36,042 victims In that city.
During the name period thobc dreaded dis
eases , smallpox , typhus fever and cholera ,
killed but GG3. Two years ago there \vas
much ado because typhus fever seemed to
have gained a foothold in the city. That
much-heralded disease caused forty deaths ;
diphtheria , unheralded , cause.l 1,436. Last
year there was no little apprehension In
some quarters because smallpox was mildly
epidemic In the city , cla'mlng a few victims
who by their folly or Ignorance had Invited
It. Yet the smullpcx , during the decade
1SS3-1S92 , caused only 333 deaths In the
city ; diphtheria caused 15,030. Thanks to
sanitary science , typhus may be held t bay.
Thanks to Jenner , the terrors of smallpox
nro only traditional. But the terrors of
diphtheria are still real and ever-present.
For so.ne years , however , medical science
has looked forward hopefully to the conquest
of diphtheria. Ten years ago the bacillus
that causes the disease was discovered. The
bacilli lodged In the throat , as a rule pro
duce ptomaines or other toxlnes , that enter
the circulation and poison the system. These
toxlnes may be developed In media other than
the human body , and "attenuated" by culti
vation. Experiments of some years' standing
prove that attenuated virus , Injected Into
the circulation of animals In varying
strengths , produces diphtheria of varying
degrees of virulence , and that such virus
may even cure diphtheria previously estab
lished , It remained to make the application
to the human subject. Apparently this has
now been done , and If the reports arc to be
crsdltcd , diphtheria will soon take Us place
beside smallpox and hydrophobia behind the
vlctnrlous chariot of prjventatlve medicine.
Meantime , a word of caution may not be
amiss. In their laudable anxiety to benefit
the race , workers In tilts , as In other fields ,
sometimes let thotr Imagination outstep their
actual achievements. It was sea , few years
ago , when the public was led to believe that
a sure cure for tuberculosis had been dis
covered , whereas. In reality , only an Im
portant , not a llnnl , step toward such a (11 E-
covcry had been made. The originator of
the new diphtheria remedy Is the same Dr. *
Koch who developed tuberculin. Dr.
Koch Is a scientist of scientists. Tuberculin
was a disappointment , not because Its dis
coverer claimed too much for It , but be
cause his followers .claimed more than the
msster thought of < 'fclalmlng.lt Is to be ho.-cd
that the same mistake will not be repeated
with the present remedy. Let enthusiastic
follower * make sure thut they are keeping
step with the originator of the remedy , and
that they are not making : us expect
too much of It at first. There can be
no question that the work of Dr. Koch
and others with the toxlnes of germ
diseases Is along- right lines. In th ? end Us
results arc sure. But we must be patient
with tentative efforts. Should the diphtheria
remedy do but half what Is hoped for It , Its
volus wll | still be Inestimable. Even falling
short of this , If It has any potency whatever.
Itwill be , like tuberculin , an Inspiring token
of the time to come when preventatlvo medi
cine will ccpo successfully with every con
tagious disease , vanquishing each one In turn
by means of preventatlvo..inoculatlonn , as It
has already vanquished smallpox. But the
public cannot be- expected to realize this , and
the remedy which accomplishes less than Is
promised will bo accounted a failure. It Is
far better that little should be promised If
there Is the slightest question as to what
can be performed. In view of the lesson In
Eelf-restralnt that nas taught the enthusi
asts by tuberculin , however , we are Justified
In hoping that nothing has been claimed for
the diphtheria remedy that a trial of the
remedy Itself will not Immediately Justify.
In that event the origination of this remedy
will easily take rank among the most 1m-
vortont discoveries of this generation ,
Court Culling * .
With the exception of Judges Hopewell
and Walton , all of the members of the dis
trict bench were In their accustomed places
yesterday , and they spent the time solely In
the interest o ( the attorneys , calling de
faults , entering motions and passing upon
cxparte matters and In a general way
cleaning up the delayed business that had
accumulated from the lajt term of court.
Judge Keysor returned from bis trip to

up the work upon , his docket , dlspoilng of
several unimportant matters.
In Judge Scott's court the city flump

the absence of Attorney Patrick , who rep-e-

Klsuascr FlKiirlng mi Too Llttlo Money for
City Ktoctrlc Light I'lunt.
The ordinance recently Introduced by
Ccuncliman Elsasser providing for the sub
mission of a proposition to vote $200,000 In
bonds for the construction of a municipal
electric light plant has been Indefinitely post
poned , pending the settlement of the I'latte
canal proposition. The Introduction of the
ordinance has aroused considerable Interest
In the question , however , and some figuring
has been done with a view to ascertalnlnR
the probable expense of construction of such
a plant as would be necessary to suit the
requirements of the city.
According to the figures of City Electrician
Schurlg.the amount proposed to be voted
would bo Insutnftltrlt ! for the purpose and ho
Is emphatlcallyviin ) favor of delaying any
affirmative nctlonuntll ; the fate of the canal
Is settled. If Hid 'canal should become n
reality the electric current would bo avail
able with butt 1(116 ( expense beyond tlmt
connected with > . llo- placing of wires .ind
poles , and the 'expansive steam plant tint
would have to bo-'Constrncted If the matter
was taken up noivvould be altogetlrr un
The Hteam planttcauld net to put n for I si
than $75,000 , as the very best compound
condensing or triple expansion engines would
bj required to furnlih ths2 000-horse power
necessary to run' the Immense dynamos.
But the line construction represents the
most cxpenslve' > feature of the prosp.ctlve
plant. At the ( present time there arc , not
fftr from ,375miles , tot electric light wltlng
| n the city. Alii sorts of Wire Is used , running - " -
ning from 00 to''No. S , but No. I Is the slz *
generallyi used. This wire costs $240 per
mile , and , allowing nn additional 5 per cent
for slack , makes the cost of the wire $250
per mile , or $08,750 for the entire plant. To
this must be udded the cost ot placing It on
the poles , which Is about $45 per mile , or
The poles also constitute a heavy Item of
expense. It Is estimated that there are-about
1,700 poles In the- city that are used ex
clusively for electric light wires. Most ot
these are fifty-foot poles , which cost $7.C'J '
each , but In many cases sixty and seventy-
foot poles are necessary and these run up
as lilgh as $20. The hauling and setting of
the poles Is nt least $ G each and In conic
cabes , where there Is a tall polo to be set
on a downtown corner , It Is nearly twlca
that sum. Taking the minimum estimate
In each case the total cost of each pole after
It is placed In position Is $13.50 , whlchy
multiplied by 1,700 , gives $22,950. (
It thus appears that the total cost of con
structing the line Is $103,075 , exclusive of the
costly steam plant , dynamos , purchase of
site and construction cf building. Upon this
showing the $200,000 named In the ordlnanca
would be wholly Inadequate for the project
and It Is the general sentiment that tlu >
matter should bo suffered to drop until the
result of the vote on the canal proposition is
assured ,
The construction of the canal as contem
plated would practically cut the cost of the
electric light plant In two , Mr. Schurlg says
that the current by which the power was
transmitted from the penstocks would con
stitute an alternating current which could
be directly utilized In furnishing electric
light. Consequently neither the engines ,
boilers nor dynamos would be required and
much of the complicated and expensive elec
trical machinery would bo dispensed with.
The only machinery , required would bo the
converters and a switch-board at the power <
house , which could be located at some point
In the central part of the city , thus simpli
fying the circuits to a great extent and ef
fecting a material saving In power.
Another valuable consideration Is Indi
cated , which consists In the fact that the
wires entering buildings need not bo
charged with the present high potential cur
rent , thus doing away with a great deal of
the danger of conflagration Each arc light
requires a power of about fifty volts and by
means of the converters the wires could be
charged with Just the current required for
the number of lights In the building. In
case the original alternating current was too
strong It could bo reduced and then In
creased whenever it was necessary or de
sirable by the converter system. It la be
lieved that the entire cost of the plant with
the power from the canal would be less
than $150,000.

Mttlo Opposition nt the rolls ,
SAN FRANCISCO , Sept. 22. The steamer ,
Australia arrive/ * today from Honolulu bring
ing the following advices to the Associated
press ;
HONOLULU , Sept. 15. The coming elec
tion , to bo helds October 29 , Is creating con
siderable talk. From present Indications
there will bo llttlt opposition to govern-
ii.cn t candidates. Royalist nominations have
not yet been made ; though Paul Neumann ,
confidential adviser of the ex-queen , has
been freely spokeir of as a candidate for
senator. One of the clauses ot the new
constitution is to the effect that all govern
ment officials who have not taken the oath
of allegiance to' 'the ' republic by the 1st of
September wllll.ba discharged. This rule
will be carried out even to the exclusion cf
wcmen school teachers , a few of whom would
not give up their allegiance to Lllluokalanl.
A majority of the native office holders have
taken the required oath , however , and slant )
pledged 4o support the present government ,
One American , one English and three
German men-of-war have teen In Honolulu's
harbor for the past week. The Germans
left a few days ago and the Charleston de
parted yesterday for the scene ot Cprean
war. The. Hyaclntbe , the English war ship ,
( eaves today for a short cruise. This has
given birth to the usual royalist rumors of
the queen's restoration , but no belief is cx-
prttseil by the Government on any attempt
tcnard rebellion.
