be tried. The nudn evil would be in
leaving the choice of teachers to the
elector? who do not understand En

to judge as to who is i'he proper per

of even their own children. The voter
in that case would be governed more
by friendship th.vn serving the best
interest either of himself or of his
children, if he had any. On the other
hand we know of appointments by
the Board of Education who are not
qualified at all to teach. Also some
teachers have too much education
that they occupy their minds even in
school hours with bettering their own
individual interests, and who consider
working hard to better the child a
waste of time. That is the trouble
of employing too highly educated
teachers to teach very young chil
dren. But which of the two evils is

the casual observer, the haole minority seem to be most to blame,
but there is no doubt but that the Hawaiian majority were too
anxious to override party wishes.
jQs From the present appearances, there is nothing to fear, either
from the election of Fred. Backloy as speaker of tne lower house,
or from the committees which he has appointed, and the most
sensible thins for the house to do is to ncccpt him and hi3 commit
tees, and get to work. It was an egregious political blunder to
hae elected him speaker, but the majority in the house owe it to
their own dignity to stand by him as long as ha proves true to bis
trust, in the matter of expediting the business of the legislature.
Sj Representative Philip Pali asks for an appropriation of $ 15,000,
to enlarge and extend. the wharf at Lahaina, and every representa
tive and senator from Maui should stand in with the proposition.
Lahaina has practically a daily steamer' service, and some: days
several steamers touch there. While it is true that Lahaina is not a
lare shipping port.still toe the safety and convenience of the irany
passengers who almost daily land or embark there, an improved
wharf secvice should be given.
The use of oil for fuel has passed the experimental stage
on ocean steamers, and it is only a question of time when all ocean
steamers will entirely discard the use of coal for fuel.. Captain
"Weedon of the Nevadan pronounces oil fuel a perfect success on
his vessel, not only as a fuel, but also on economic grounds, dis
carding labor and dirt, and being much cheaper. Another advan-
tage is that the oil bulk is mucl less than that of coal, thus making
more freight room.
3Q That the question of statehood should be deemed of sufficient
importance in congress to tie up other important legislation may
seem singular, but the importance underlying the proposition is
found in the fact that the creation of a state implies the creation
of two new United States senators. It is purely a political ques
tion, and congress is influenced less by the needs for statehood
than by the politics of the proposed state.

Vidocq, the great French detective,
was born ih Arras iu 1775. He began
life as a baker and early became the
terror of bis companions by his ath
letic frame and violent disposition
At the same time he was a notorious
thief, and after many disgraceful
adventures he enlist ed.in the army
Tn 1796 he returned to Paris with
some money, which, however, he Boon
squandered. Next he was sentenced
at Lille to eight years hard labor for
forgery, but repeatedly escaped, and
in 1808 he became connected with the
Paris police as a detective.
,. His previous career enabled him to
render important services, arid he
was appointed chief of the safety
brigade, chiefly composed of repriev
ed convicts, which purged Paris of
the many dangerous classes. In 1818
he received a full pardon, and hu
connection with this service lasted
uutil about.828, when he settled at
St. Manae as a paper manufacturer
Soon after the revolution of 1830 he
became political'detective, but wit.h
little success. In 1848 he was again
employed under the republican gov
ernment, but he died penniless in
