The News bus recently taken oc
casion to pcint out the defects in our
scho.il system, and Incidentally t
voice the general opinion that we are
not gettingtho csulcs for which wc
annually pay large sumi, the point
being made by this paper that our
common schools, with some few ex
ceptions, are failing to properly in
struct our grammer school children.
The following let ter, written to the
Bulletin by a Maui toucher, furnish
es just the opportunity which the
News needs to clinch its argument:
Editor Evening Uulletin:-0ur most
progressive luce I pape.- the Maui
News, has recent y devoted much
(space in Its ed tonal.s in denouncing
school metin d-j nnd device as carried
on in onr school-!, and declaring the
live step inelhod as "loinmy-i ot"
and oilier such awkward express! 'lis
ami thai- our common school gradu
ates can no longer, for want of pro
per I raining, obtain positions in an
olliee as th. y did lif teen years ugo.
One who lias had some experience
as a teacher will rc ndily notice tiat
the editor of that "progressive" pa
per is vastly ignorant of tho subject
he has written and it is exceedingly
surprising that a man who assumes
tr be an editor of a journal should
express his views on a subject of
which he lists absolutely no Know
ledge, llj may as wi II slep liilo the
ullice of thi.' plantation muiugcr and
suggest some better device in the
cultivation of sugar cane, a sur.jeet
which lie, too, has no concept.. on,
except possibly that sugar is made
from sugar cane.
Our young men of today with the
advantages ollered in our excellent

The so called "Five-Step Method,"
briefly speaking, is simply u gei.cral
plan for the teaching of lessons. It
is based on educational principles,
and the result of many year of ex
perience. Thuukizg you for the space, I rc
main, yours truly, ' J. V,
Mokawao, Maui, Oct. 20. 1904.
Now it will be remembered" by
those who attentively read the New
that the blame in the matter was
placed on the shoulders of the teach
ers rather than of the children. Iu
ordinary correspondence, errors in
grammar, stylo und composition are
excusable, but when a teacher writes
a letter for publication in a newspa
per, it may fairly be presumed that
he wiil have at leust pride enough to
do tho best he knows how iu the mat
ter of corrcc' grammar, and will at
least pay attention to tho elementary
rules of composition. "J. Vs." let
ter in the Bulletin coutnins live
paragraph.', and tho News will take
the trouble of point out just o"e er
ror lu each paragraph, not for the
purpose of rlc'.iculiug "J. V.," but
rather for the more kindly purpose
of assisting him and others to dis
cover where the fault in our school
Paragraph One. 'The Maui
News has devoted much space in do
nouncing" etc. Incorrect. Space is

Paragraph Two. "The editor of
that 'progressive' paper is vastly
ignorant of the subject ho has writ

which," lie has written would conn,
nearer conforming to the elementary
riles of composition.
Paragraph Three. "Our young
men today with the advantages off
ered in our excellent school svstem
are certainly better prepared when
he graduates than tho youth fifteen
years ago." Yes, "J. V.," but it
will be hard to iiiako old f.igtes like
tho News man believe tiiat, o long
as you insist on making the singular
phrase "wlv n he graduates" agree
with the plural form, "Out young
Paragraph Fou r. "Ambitious
young men today seek a higher edu
cation than that ottered in f'c com
mon schools, rnd carefully prepare
for their future worif, while Lis
schooimato wlthoat on ambition or
circumstances may nit permit., are
quite satisfied with their common
school education, and therefore can
not complete with h:s chum." Excus
us, "J. V.," we promised to point
out only one error in each paragraph
But as the singular forms "bis
schoolmates" and "his chum" each
refer to the tame plural antecedent
"Ambitious young men," the News
will rount it one error, and pass iu
silence over the expression, "with
out nn ambition, or cirenmstances
may not permit."
Patograph Five - "It, (the Five
Step Method,) is based on education

years of experience." Faulty cum
position again. Sho"ld be, "and is

word "of" alter "years," which lat
ter word should be possessive in
The five step method in the prop
er hands and used properly has
never been condemned by the News,
?ut it docs scf rn that one or two pre
liminary "steps" are needed in our
com non schools, notably llm ability
to use the s'mpli's forms of the En

' J. V." assumes t! at the News
man is "vastly igurn.iu" of school
matters, but the truih it that he
was principal cf one of tho leading

The ball game Tuesday afternoon
demonstrated very forcibly the su
perlority of the Mailes over the ;occl
team, regardless of the fact that the
weather conditions, tho rouL'h vovaue .
on the Iroquois fr .m Hawaii, and their
unfamiliarit.y with the grounds af
forded a heavy handicap which
should have proved a boon to tie
M l,:t i
., , , . , .
There were several hot rangiest
over uecisious mil ic oy in j local
umpires and the opinion prevailed
that tho Mallei intended to win
w'.ieiher by fair playing or by bull
dozing on the decisions.
The Mailes had no reason to resort
to tlrs latter method as the play
showed that they outbatted and out
fielded th-i home nine.
The Mauis played as excellent a
game as any this season, the battery
being exceptionally proficient and
the gume was as much the Mauls as
the Mailes until the last inning when
the latter piled up live runs, while
the Mauts, who were last to the but
only made one.
'j'om Kroger made two pretty ruiv
niug catches of fou! fli s. DcLcrie of
the Mailes who played leflfield also
made a running catch which called
forth applause from the epect. tors.
George Cumniings who had been
slated to play at short for the Mauis
met with his usual mishap, in this
instance during practice prior to
the calling of game.
Cummings was working himself in
to form at short und iu attempting
to stop a lot liner split his right
hand between the thumb and fore
finger so severely us to necessitate
his withdrawal from the game. Tcin
Lloyd held down short in his place.
The soggy condition of the ground
and I lie Mauis playing uilhojt cleats
o. i their shoes, were responsible for
tho fc errors of the home team.
Hampton's errors'were of a nature
which wtt c anything but excusable
coming from a player of his caliber.

Inter Island Cricket.
A largo crowd of enthusiasts wit
nessed the first intcrisland game of
cricket at Kahului Thursday after
. . , , ,
noon between Oi.hu and Mam.
While the Maui team expected to
be beaten, they were happily disap
pointed in the results as they made
a very jreditable showing, their weak
spot being in their battting.
An unlooked for t ccident happened
to Judge Stanlly in the second game.
A batted ball struck a small stone
and In bounding struck the Judge in
the forehead above the left eye caus
ing a nas'y gash, but which did not
prevent the play ccntinuing.
