The choice of i subject on which to
" address you this" evening is the more
, embarrassing from the1' richness, of the
field that offers itself for selection. My
purpose has been from among the
many problems that thrust thcmselrc
upon us, impatient for an answer, to
take that one which stands in the fore
most tfnk ot importance. Vc cannot!
shut our eyes to the ital imiwrtarrcetm
us in Hawaii nci of all that pertains to
When the first missionaries landed
on these islands they found awaiting
them a race on whom the unclean hafid
of commerce,- extended by an eager
and aggressive civilization, had already
been laid with no light touch, Disease
had been sown broadcast and was be
ginning to ripen its harvest of death.
The people had the passions and vices
of full grown men, yet, like untaught
children, they were weak and vuh.erj
aoie, necuing ueicnsc at every, poini.
The partial solution of the problem
of how to furnish the needed defense
was all that could be reasonably ex
pected of this or any band of men and
women, even had thev been furnished
with every appliance and with unlinv
ited resources. That with the means
they had at command they managed to
accomplish what they did in fortifying
this race by a broad and Christian edu
cation against the mighty influences
that were in operation for their physi
cal and moral destruction, must ever
cause grateful wonder in. the minds of
The terms of the problem presented
for our solution arc not the same as
those that obtained sixty years ago, in
the days of Uingham, Whitney, and
Thurston. The great movements of
population, which have followed the
discovery of the precious metals in
California and Australia, have pro
foundedly affected the course of events
in these islands. It yet remains to be
cen whether this will prove to be the
making, or the unmaking of this peo
ple, asa nation,and of thiscountry, as the
home for a civilized and enligtcued race.
This new order of things has been the
means of fostering enterprise and the
commercial spirit, thus stimulating the
production of wealth, and bringing in
to our midst a large and heterogeneous
alien population. The Portuguese have
come by the thousand, the Chinese by
the ten thousand. With this invasion
has been thrust upon us the necessity of a
new study of the field and a redistribu
tion of the forces in all lines of Christ
ian and philantropic effort to meet the
exigencies of the case. Some steps in
deed have been taken towards this
needed rearrangements of forccs,but tard
ily and ina degree not commensurafewith
the rising tide of resistance, and thus
the danger threatens that the forces
fighting on the side of the right shall
- - be out-nirtnbcrcd and the ground be
occupied in advance by the enemy. It
is of the highest importance not only
to the cause of Christianity and mor
als, but also to that of good order and
common decency that the offensive
and defensive operations now in mo
tion should enter upon new ground,
and that as soon as possible.
Among the questions brought into
prominence by this state of affairs, none
in my opinion, outranks that of the ed-
ucation of the females of the Hawaiian
and the imported, or mixed races that
form the underlying strata of our popu
lation. It is one of the Curitans1 chief claims
to grateful remembrance that they took
measures very soon after their arrival
in New England, that, as their old law
frankly expressed it "learning might not
be buried in the graves of their fathers."
In like manner the early American Mis
sionaries to Hawaii nei showed their
(rood sense and grasp of the situation.
by devoting not a small part of their
earnest efforts to sowing, broadcast the
seeds of what must be considered un
der the- circumstances a liberal educa
tion.! It may be said theirs was an attempt,
in imitation of the pilgrim fathers, to rear
a .social fabric with its corner-stone
resting on a book.
Whatever praise is due to the present
system of schools, as well as what ever
there is that may deserve the name of
higher education in this country, rest
on fourxLtions laid by the foresight of
the early missionary fathers, as a result
of which we to-day may point to a peo
ple among whom the knowledge of let
ters is so general as to make illiteracy
the rare exception.
The missionaries deser e the credit not
only of having lifted the race monegene
ration from a condition of savage illiter
acy to be a people of eager iJbok read
ers.but also that of having imparted to
the people many of those useful house
hold arts, without a knowledge of
which any eople is heavily handicap
ped in this nineteenth-century race for
civilization. When the missionary
landed on these shores he did not leave
behind him all the arts and appliances
of civilucd, domestic life. He brought
with him not only that great engine
of education, the printing press, with
its fellows, the Hibleand thebpellingbook
but also imoduccd at the same time
those other great civiliiers, the spade
and the plough, the saw, the plane
and the needle, and was the first to in
struct the Hawaiian in their use. Super
ior to all these was the influence of the
Christian family which he set up in
their midst ai an object lesson for
their instruction in household art and
all the Christian wrtues. The educa
tion given to the" Hawaiian may then
be classed a of three kinds ; first
religious and moral, second that of
the sort taught in the schools, book
education ; and third that of the
practical sort which concerns the arts
of the householduid domestic life.
If now, one mt asked to designate
the weak point in the Hawaiian ed
ucational system he might unhesitingly
declare that it consisted in its failure
to wield such an influence over the wo
men of this country as shall lead to
that happy blending of the moral
force with bouathold thrift and skill
y Fkh ictuks ia the home. It seems
m utttfisf tfi a4 common pkee
phrases to rail to mind that the best
wisdom of statesmen and philosophers
the world over save" perhaps in Tur
key and China has declared its opin
ion that in the virtue and .character of
its wives. and mothers lies a oouutry's
greatest security. For these make
the home, and the. home is the fount-.
am whence stream forth all eood in
fluences into the state. The integrity,
virtue and common honesty displayed
by a people in the marts of trade, in
the halls of legislation and in all the
public walks nf life can tise no higher
than this, their fountain head,
Measuring the moral influence of the
average Hawaiian home Jjy this stand
ard, we shall be forced to declare it
sadly deficient Applying this prin
ciplc of reasoning to explain this lam
en table deficiency, wc are forced to
the conclusion that the root .of the
trouble lies in the feeble grip the great
principles of morals and of industry
have on the females of the race. Thus
it has happened that through the
cjiararter of its women this nation has
received it most nrcvioiK wounds.
Now a chain is rfb stronger than its
weakest link, and the morals and chara
cter of a nation arc no better than
those of its women. Not but there
exists among the Hawaiians many
noble instances of womanly virtue. Wc
all know too the admirable skill which
the women of this race attain in the
use of the needle, their old time in
genuity in the manufacture of useful
and ornamental articles. Hut the pos
session and exercise of all these arts
do not relieve a people from the
charge of savagery, and do not of them
selves lift the home into the plane of
purity and enlightenment,
What is the remedy for this state of
affairs? What is the lever that will
avail to lift the tone of the home life
of this people, to make the word home,
one of sweet and pleasant association,
and the place itself a sacred retreat,
fenced about from all impurity and the
invasion of intruding vice, the nur
sery of industry and orderly habits ?
It was formerly the custom for the
prudent housekeeper each week to set
aside a small portion of the dough she
was making up into bread, to 'be kept
as yeast, with which to leaven and raise
the next batch of flour she mixed for
bread-making. By this intcrestsng ex
piritnent in germ culture, the leaven
ing process, once established, was con
tinued indefinitely. The loaf of one
week gained its sweetness and lightness
from that of the week before and trans
mitted it to the next in an unbroken
series. Applying this homly figure to
the cast in hand, I would argue that
the influence of the home was the best
leaven to mix with the character of a
girl that her whole nature micrht be
leavened with domesticity.
Looking back to the early , days
of the mission, wc find that nearly
ever)' missionary family and many
Othcrfaitulies, of white peopje in this
countty "were practically schools in
vvhich Hawaiian women were trained
by the leavening influence of example
in the arts of the household. The
success of the method proved its sound
ness and commends it to us as the
one to be employed.
I We find that the Hawaiian women
Who went through this sort of training,
though possessed of a modicum of
book-education, were vastly more
skilled and'proficient as housekeepers,
and were, as a rule, better wives and
mothers than their daughters and
grand-daughters of the present day, who
have received many times their amount
of school education but have not re
ceived their domestic training.
There exists a feeling, which in some
minds amounts to a conviction, that
the education given to the Hawaiian
girls in their special schools is not
proving a full success, and is not
graduating Irom the schools young
women fitted in mind and body to
take the places now too often vacant
as wives and mothers in the homes of
1 nerc is, 1 lear, too mucn truth in
th. frequently repeated criticism that
the ornamental book education given
the young women, has too often inten
sified their natural antipathy to the
useful, handsoiling drudgery of the
household, in which they have not
bjen systematically trained ; that it has
bred in their minds a perilous ambi
tion vvhich disdains, with false pride,
the honest work of their parents in their
lowly homes ; that it allows them to
affect a distaste for the wholesome pot
and fish that constituted their staple
food when at home ; that it permits
them to develop such expensive tastes
in dress as the narrow incomes of their
homes or their own honest efforts can
not supply ; and that, as an outcome
of all their fine education, we uee them
too often scorn the idea of marriage
with the educated young men of their
qwn race, graduates of 1-ahainaluna
or Hilo, and as a result they drift
away and go to ruin. Happily this is
not true ot all or of the majority of the
graduates, and the observant traveller
will find scattered from Hawaii to Nii
liau a goodly number of Christian
hornet, the presiding geniuses of which
are graduates from the schools from
Kawaiahao, Makawao and elsewhere.
The practical test of the value of
female education in Hawaii net, as well
as any where else, is that it shall fit the
girls to be wives and mother!
Failure to accomplish this means
The fault of our Hawaiian female
educational method, as it seems to me,
is that it relies to much on mere lxxk
education. Books can supply the
knowledge needed to lit youths for
Harvard or Williams or Yale or Vassar,
but the book is not et made that can
teach the art of housekeeping.
I know and appreciate the value of
good books to one who has any
drudgery to perform as well as to
others ; how they cheer the heart in
me MJiiiuucs 01 uic ; now nicy iceu
the imagination with wholesome food ;
how they bring the ideal into life in
spite of sorrow ; how they help one to
raalue the words of the poet :
"A Kjvml with Ibis cUuic
Mike 4nKty divine i
Wka iwfp room a foi thy lwi,
MsIms thw, lW Mtian, Am."
Hut it is necessary to have the action
Year by year the deficiency of the
Hawaiians in home training becomes
more and more patent and exhibits it
self as an apparent arrest of deMilop
ment in the practical education of the
women in the arts of domestic life,
while book knowledge has Jhriven
apace, domesticity remains dwarfed.
Housekeeping is an art, and as such
can be imparted only by example, can
be acquired only by practice. In order
to train up the irecnt generation of
Hawaiian gin") iu oe goou iiuum:im:;ii-
era as well as honest wives and mothers,
we must rcvett to the principles and
methods of education employed by our
fathers and mothers, and again bring
into play that university of domestic
art and accomplishment, the home , or.
if this plan cannot be followed literally,
some substitute should be found that
will embody its spirit. The old plan of
instructional! the family t no longer

limited application at the be3tjmd its
benefits' could directly reach bill (ffewr
Thc time has now come, it seems to
me, when the plan of giving instruc
tion in the arts of housekeeping
should be introduced into our girls'
schools and should constitute the main
feature of their education. In this
way can the benefits of domestic train
ing Ix made general. Happily there is
nothing new or original in the idea of
introducing into the schools for girls a
certain amount of training in the arts
of housekeeping. Hut there is great
need that the application of the princi
ple should be emphasized and extended.
It is not enough that the girl should be
taught to sweep and wash, to make a
bed, to mend and sew, to cook an appe
tizing meal and serve at the table,
merely as a part of the domestic
economy of the household. That is
very well as far as it goes, but to insure
success the idea must be carried fur
ther and made to demand the erfor
mance of these works and others.
under the direction of special, skilled
instructors, as an Kitegral part of the
gitl's educational curriculum. . In ac
cordance with this plan, the ability to
cut and fit a garment would rank as"'an
accomplishment of greater merit than
proficiency in mathematics; topioperly
broil a steak or cook a meal of food

excellence in geography ; while cleanli
ness, tidiness and approved good taste
in dress, would gain for the scholar a
higher standing in the class than the
hitherto overprized ability to play the
piano, or to recite in public on the
There is such a thing as over-education,
or more properly, mis-education,
in vvhich certain faculties, or parts of
the nature, are disproportionately exer
cised, while others are left untrained.
A mere book education, even though it
includes the precepts of morals and the
jtheorics and doctrines of religion, is of
necessity a one sided and imperfect
education. Education should be ad
apted to the special needs of the individ
ual, supplementing weak points, so
planned as to fit the person for his or
her future career in life ; and no educa
tion can be called complete vvhich
does not train the hands to some useful,
skilled work. With many persons, ave,
with most persons, the training of the
hands, which is the training of the
brain and moral nature as well, is the
most important part of all education,
and without tin's the otlver will make a
sorry failure. I do notifbrget that the
princesses of intellectual and cultiva
ted Cermany are carefully trained in the
arts of the household. In all modesty-
1 would ask it these principles have not
been too much neglected in the educa
tion of Hawaiian girls Without in
the least disparaging the noble work
that has been done, it is my conviction
that the educational work of the future
in this country lies along the lines I
As an admirable illustration of what
good results may be accomplished by
tne application ot this method of cdu
cation, I take pleasure in instancing

The educational needs of the' Ha
waiian girl are greater than those of
the girl born of enlightened white par
ents. In the case of the Hawaiian
girl there is an almost total lack of
home education to begin with. Morals
and manners, habits of industry, thrift
and economy plants of slow growth
together with the necessary book-knowledge,
which I am far from despising,
have to be imparted to her all at once.

comparatively easy to give the book-
knowledge, but when it comes to the
more important items in the above
category, it is a heavy lift, and too
often it seems as if the very idea of

moulding influence of generations of
home culture. Again, the warm, ease-
loving, sensuous nature of the Ha
waiian, which finds its ready expression
in mirth and song and gossip, and de
lights in babbling the vapid and mean
ingless verses which may be described
as belonging to the banana-and-sugar-cane
order of poetry, is not the nature
that most rc.-dily lends itself to the
economies and drudging virtues of the
household. Cut it need not be thought
necessary to attack directly and with rude
hand the harmless, gleeful levities or in
nocent follies which the Hawaiian girl
finds it in her nature to love by virtue of
her tropic blood. These effervescences
may well be left to exhale themselves if
proper training ana development be gi
ven to the nobler faculties of her na
ture. Mjr proposition, then, is that the
great educational demand of theday, as
regards the Hawaiian girl, will be met
by making the basis of her education
consist of a thorough and kytternatic
training in all the essential or closely

Appropos of Knickerbocker's budget
of Blaine chit-chat, the following
scoring of Harper's Weekly, from the
pen of Frank Pixlcy of the San Fran
cisco Argonaut, is by far the most tell
ing bit of counter criticism it has been
the writer's good fortune to notice :
"TAtDiirna of Ciiiitati'on" lor all the
years of its existence has thanked God dial it
was Iwttcr than the Sadduccs and sinners of,
the press. Its editorial high priest Ins stood
uith.luoad phylacteries, and made long pray
ers in the political synagogue thanking Ood
that he and his employers, the Harper
Brothers, were better and purer than other
men". Now they have been whipped oui of
the temple as unclean and dishonest money
changers. Their professions of supctior mo
tives, their hypocritical pretences of immacu
late and unselfish purity, have been exposed,
and it is now demonstrated that all their op
position to Mr. Blaine, all their indignation at
his lack of public integrity, results from a
business jealousy. Harper's Weekly owned
by Harper Brothers an J edited by George
William Curtis opposes the nominee of a
national convention in wliich its editor acted
as a delegate ; in aH of its deliberations lie
participated ; all of its acts he approved ;
and, with solemn voice and serious counten
ance, he declared it was an insult to question
the sincerity of his purpose to support the
nominees. And why do they oppose this
nominee ? For the sole and only reason that
the firm of Harper Brothers was liot chosen by
Mr. Blame to print his look. A private, per
sonal grudge, inspired alone, by mercenary
considerations, has prompted this business
Krai, the Harpers, to send their editor to
national convention to betray the Republican
party, to v iolite his word of f cisonal Ifoimr,
and to bolt his ticket. It has prompted these
proprietors of the "Journal of Civilization " to
turn loose its pensioned libelers, with pen
and pencil, in type and picture, to vilify "and
caricature the man concerning whom J. W.
Harper, Jr., (the head of the firm) wrote as
follows only sixteen months ago. The Harper
publishing house desired to secure the pub
lication of Mr. Blaine's history, " Twenty )cars
of Congress," and wrote to a personal friend
of his own and Mr. Blaine the following
" With the instinct of a publisher accus
tomed to deal with the people rather than
with the privileged classes, I recognite the
fact that there is no man living more closely in
sympathy with the people than Mr. lilaine.
I keep a not untrained finger on the popular
fiulse, which in our American life is generally
lealthy, and I am sure that it beats strongly in
admiration and affection for the man who has
been absolutely fearless in his patriotism. Mr.
Weed's reminiscences will be interesting as ttie
record of an acute observer, but I am sure that
Mr. Blaine's narrative will hold the American
people, because it will be a human, real, llcsh-and-blood.rccord,
not of a Machiavellian ob
server, but of an active participator, brave
fighter, and gallant leader in the most critical
events of our nation's -fcUtory. So, when it
comes quite convenient to you, I wish that
you would give Mr. Blaine to understand that,
while the doors of Franklin Square always
stand wide open to ' them literary fellers,'

evangelists, and travelers, the proprietors gen

gracefully and well."
