Emalia Kaihumua abused, 1906.

CAUGHT LEPER SUSPECT.

Emalia Kaihumua was attacked by her husband yesterday, the woman’s jaw being broken by a blow from a demijohn. She was taken to the police station for treatment and an investigation disclosed the fact that she was in all likelihood a leper, so she was ordered to the detention station at Kalihi.

CAUGHT LEPER SUSPECT.

Tragic follow up to Emalia Kaihumua, 1906.

BEAT HIS WIFE AND THE WIFE WAS AFFLICTED BY THE SEPARATING DISEASE.

This past Sunday, January 28th, the husband of Emalia Kaihumua beat her and her jaw was dislocated, because she was struck with a wine bottle. That woman was taken to Kuapapanui, and tended to.

Later, Dr. McDonald of the Board of Health came and examined the injury, and after his examination of some of the flesh of that woman, he gave orders to have the injured woman to the Quarantine Station in Kalihi.

From this it is understood that Emalia is suspected of having leprosy, and that is possibly why she was taken to the quarantine area of the sick.
