Sup't Copeland and Corps Will Teach
the Higher Branches of Study at
Walluku's New High School.

On Monday, schools ODens in all
the public schools on Maui, with but
few chances of teachors. the most
notable being the transfer o.f C. E.
Copeland from Waiukoa grammar
school to the Wailuku high school
Mr. Vincent of Huelo will succeed
Mr. Copeland at Waiakoa.
It was feared that several of our
best teachers would resigu on ac
count of the reduction of salaries, as
in many Instances teachers' sala.ries
ave been cut to a point where they
are simply insufficient to support the
teachers. It is the general opinion
however that the legislature will
have to make ample appropriations
for public school teachers, and prob
ably this is why more teachers have
The new high school builciing in
Vailuku will not have been complet
ed in time to bo occupied at the op
ening of the term, consequently Mr.
Copeland and his corps of assistants
will occupy the old building for the
next six weeks or two months, by
which time t'oo now building will be
ready for occupancy.
However -pupils desiring to enroll
for the higher branches of study can
enter at once a3 Mr. Copeland is
prepared to givo them special atten
tion. Tbiis will bo something long
waited for in Wailuku, and many
parents in this district, some of
whom have scarcely been ablo to do
so. have been compelled to send their
sons and daughters to Honolulu to
obtain anything beyond an ordinary
Drlmary school education.
All this is changed now, .and the
Board of Public Instruction in Hono
lulu will do their full share in deve
loping tho school in Wailuku to one
of tho leading high schools on the
Islands. They have agreed to equip
the school with all necessary appli
ances and it is beyond doubt that in
a few years the Wailuku high school
will be in tho front rank of ednca
tional institutions on tho Islands.
Tho Public School Department
builded more wisely than they knew
in giving us a One high school build

their good work by selecting as

grammar school has not at all times
in tho past been entirely free. In
this connection, the News desires to
especially pompliment Mrs. McKay,
the late principal, for the splendid
work she has done in clovating the
moral tono as well as tho manners of
tho children who for the past severo?
years have been under her charge.
Tho 'advanced classes will doubt

children, especially those of central
Maui, and with trains running from
Paia, Puuncno and Spreckelsville,
many parents from up country will
be ob'o to avail themselves of the
educational and industrial training
which our new high school will offer.

The people of Maui rtro also to be

Bureau of Intelligence of the United
States Make Valuable Com
parisons LOSS OF PORT ARTHUR FLEET
Would Cripple and Place Russia
In Filth Place of Navies;
In making a general statement of
the relative strength of the navies of
tho world, it is necessary to define
clearly tho basis on which such estim
ate is made. Otherwise, tho com
parison is apt to bo misleading. A
few months ago the Bureau of In
telligent of the United States navy
mado some valuable comparisons,
based upon its own invaluable sources
of information, in ono of which the
navies were compared on the basis
of the number and displacement both
of the warships actually completed
on January 1, 1904, and tho other on
the number and displacement both of
tho warships actually completed and
of those under construction at that
date. In theso estimates no account
is taken of gunboats and other ves
sels of loss than 1,000 tons displace
mcnt, nor do they include trans
ports, dispatch vessols, converted
merchant vessels or yachts, or obso
lete cruisers. Vessels, moreover,
that are authorized, but upon which
no actual work of construction has
been done. Vans excluded from tho
At' tho outsot, attention should bo
drawn tb the fact that although , the
United Ssates has a most liberal pro
gramme of construction in hand, the
great delay in completing our ships
causes us to make a relatively poor
showing in a comparison of vessels
actually completed, the United
States coming fifth on tho list and
below Russia and Germany. Further
more, were the vessels which are now
building for the various navies of tho
world completed, the United States
would movo up from fifth to third pos
ition, with Germany fourth ar.d Rus
sia fifth. About a month after the
publication of these tables by the
Bureau of Intelligence, the war be
tween Russia and Japan opened with
the loss of several vessels of the
Russian navy, and such serious dam
age to others, that they must of
necessity bo deducted from tho total
available ships of the navy. This has
been dono by reckoning tho battle
ship "Petropavlovsk," the cruisers
"Voriag," and "Boyarin," the tor
pedo transport "Yenesei," and tho
gunboat "Kbrietz" hopelessly lost.
If tho battleships "Czarevitch,"
"Retvizen," and "Pobieda," and
cruiser "Pallada," which, after huv
ing been repaired sufficiently to be
come oncomoro an activo fleet, were
to be destroyed either by tho Rus'
sians themselves, to avoid their fall
ing into Japaneso hands, or' by tho
Japaneso in a sea fight, the subtrac
tion of this tonnago of about 70,000
from the Russian total would cause
Russia to drop from third to fourth
position, Germany taking her place
in the relativo standing of tho navies
as they now are. The same trans
position has to bo mado in the table
showing the comparative strength of
tho navies, were the ships that are
now building completed, .Germany
coming fourth, or next to the United
States, and Russia filth.
It would be mere guesswork to en
deavor to modify the second compar
ison by the losses which may occur to
both tho Russians and Japaneso be
foro tho war is mided. If the Baltic
fleet should be sent nut, and succeed
in raising tho siego of Port Arthur,
there might be a great naval engage.
ment, attended with such a serious
loss of Japanese sh'ps,as would throw
back the development ot this the
youngest amoner the navies, for a full
decade. On tho other hand,if,as it now
begins to look possible, tho Baltic
fleet be not sent out, it is likely that
Port Arthur and Vladivostock will
be captured, and' the whole Asiatic
fleet of Russia destroyed or taken. If
this should occur,it would involvo the
loss of the cream of the Russian navy,
Eince for tho past few years, tho new
Russian ships, as they havo been
completed, have been dispatched to
the Far East. Tho total loss would
includo seven battleships, four armor
cd cruisers, seven protected cruisers,
and a few gunboats, making a total
of about 170,000 tons. In this case
tho Russian total; if all the ships now
under construction were completed,
would be about 388,875 tons. She
would still rank fifth in point of dis
placement, or about 60,000 larger
than Italy, but a long way bolow tho
next nation, Germany. This, how
ever, is mere speculation; and wo
havo only changed tho figures of the
tables of tho Bureau of Intelligence
ho far as thoy aro actually affected
by the war, to tho extent of includ
ing in the totals for Japan tho two
cruisers purchased from Chile, and
by subtracting from tho Russian
totals the vessels known to bo lost or
