Washington Juno 5 -With two emi-
nent specialists Insisting on exactly
opposite opinions Washington Is rip-
pling with excitement over the ipies-
ton ot whether John Karly Is n leper.
Dr. L. I). Hulkley of New York a spe-
cialist of wide renown has visited
Hnrly twice recently and iniide ex-
haustive diagnosis of his case. He In-
sists that there are no Indications ot
leprosy. Dr. ICdward Killers of Den-
mark a noted leprologlst of Denmark
has made an examination and Is equal-
ly osltlve that Karly lias a pronounc-
ed case of leprosy. The people of
Washington nro dally treated with ex-
haustive statements upon the subject
until even the layman Is beginning to
consider himself something of an ex-
pert In tho matter. In the meantime
I'-arly and his wife and children are
kept In confinement In a Washington
suburb near Anncostla.
Karly was interested In the Salva-
tion Army. For that reason the Salva-
tion Army people nro taking an active
Interest In his case. Nearly a year
ago Karly became 111 in a cheap holel.
A physician who was called believed
lie had discovered a leper. Ho left
the patient in his room locking the
door behind him as he went out nnd
putting the key In his pocket the doc
tor hastily reported the case to the
health officers mid In fifteen minutes
the suspect was In an ambulance on
the way to a detention hospital. All
Washington was agog over the affair.
Karly was liiHtnlled In a comfortable
brick house under a strict quarantine
and kept under observation. The
statement that he wns a leper was gen-
erally nccepted. He wns ninrrled and
had one child. His wlfo and child
were moved out to th detention hos-
pital A few months later another
child was born. While Mrs. Karly
nnd the two children are qunrtered
In tho same house as their husband
and father they are kept separated
though allowed to communicate with
Springtime came and Karly cheerful-
ly wont to work making a garden. Ho
works most of tho time and seems to
like It. Newspaper men visit the place
and the senro the people had at first
seems to havo worn off. The case lias
developed Into a scientific study now.
Karly has nnd still does Insist that '
lie Is not p leper nnd that he Is suffer-1
lug with a form of skin disease total-'
ly foreign to leprosy. He thinks ho
he Is being persecuted by tho health
board of Washington. Ho hns employ-.
ed an attorney to look after his legal I
rights ns well as a physician to ding-1
nose his case.
Through the assistance of his at-
torney Karly succeeded In getting Dr '
Hulkley to come down from Now York j
nnd make diagnosis of the case nnd i
this wns done without the knowledge i
of the health officers or anybody else j
except Karly's friends. The publlca-'
Hon of Dr. Rulkloy's rejiort crenlod
a sensation. Immediately Dr. Khlers
was brought on and his diagnosis of
the case wns exactly contrary to that
of Dr. nulkley'g.
And so the controversy wages
Karly does not seem to be growing any
bettor or any worse. He wns a sol-
dier In the Philippines and It Is sup-
posed that it was there he contract-
ed leprosy. He Is drawing a pension
of $72 per month. In addition when '
be was sent to the detention hospl-
tul one of the Washington newspapers
started a popular subscription for tho
family and nearly $1000 was collected
In this -wny and turned over to the
Karlys. It Is understood that tho Sal-
vation nnny Is putting up ttio money
