'of the big Walheo ditoh, there is no

make good their promise within the
rext few years.
Tno Wailuku Sugar Plantation,
formerly consisting of the separate
plantation, the Waikapu, the Wai
luku and the Waihee, was many years
ago consolidated and incorporated
with a capitalization of 8700,000 aud
later placed under the management
ot C. B. Wells, since which time it has
proved a veritable gold mine to its
stockholders,-paying(an annual per
centage of dividends which would
sound fabulous to the average main
Nature ho3 perhaps done more for
the Wailuku Sugar Plantation than
for any othdr plantation on tho Is
lands. The soil is rich and compara
tively level, -with a gentle slope to
tho sea. Four pushing mountain
streams furnish a' constant supply of
water not only to irrigate tho cant
but also to flume a largo part ot it

The proposition of increasing tho
capital stock aud of build'ng a new
mill have been under serious con
sideration by the directors of tho
Company for the past year or so, and
at a meeting held in Honolulu on
November 11, both steps were decided
uron by the management, The cap
ital stock has been Increased to $1,
500,000, so that $300,000 worth of
new stock is lo be issued. Even with
this increase in the capital stock the
shares will undoubtedly comma ad a
premium, so that presumably the pro
sent stockholders will tike up all the
now stock, leaving none for outsido
investors. A new mill is to be erect
ed probablj on or near the site of
the present mill, as soon as this year's
crop is ground, and the now mill will
probably be completed by December
An immense canal or ditch, under
the supervision of James T. Taylor,
C. E., is being surveyed from Wai
hee which will extend to a 'Urge area
of land be tweeu 'Waikapu and Maa
laca Bay, thus largely increasing the
tills bio area of the Plantation. It is
"extlmatcd that it will take about two
years to complete this ditch, and
when finished, the Wailuku Sugar
Plantation may safely be figured as
a 15,000 ton proposition.

Within the next few years the Wai
luku Sugar Co. will more than double
its present production, and with so
little Increase incxpetuo that the roi
ativo value of the stock newly issued

question of the ptopcr education of
our children isvf so much importance
that a publication of the sub:oincd
letter on the samo subject will per
haps tend to iall forth the views of
other teachers which may tend to
throw more li.'i'.it upon the obstacles
in the way of securing good results
in our schcol work. In this connec
tion, the News invites tho teachers
of Maul and all other-! interested in
the education of our children to give
expression lo their views or. this im

''Five Step Mothou," and en all cog

The communication referred to
above is as follows:
Editor Maui News:
The Nr.ws recently published some
criticisms of the methods used in our
public schools aud lic results which
only too ovident'y follow f om these
methods. The editor's judgment has
been vindicated, and tne justice of
his criticism proven, by a letter pub
lished a short timo ago in tho Bul
letin bj "J. V.", a well known young
Portuguese teacher of Maui.
'J. V " ha-i been educated (?) in our
school1 presumably under the meth
ods which he alvocatcs. We under
stand that ho'i also a "graduate" of
the Normal Sc'.ool, in which the no
table ".yive Step Method" has been
vigorously exploited. He evidently
considers himself a fair and finished
product of a most exeelle.it cd;ca
tinnal eystem. His letter was in
tended to uphold both tho present
system of education an I the "Five
Step Method." Before mailing his
letter to the Bulicun, however, ho
should have had it cnrrcctiv. by some
one win had at least a spea. ing
acquaintance with tno Ilnglish lan
guage. Having neglected this very
necessary precaution, his effort,
which was to have put a quietus upon
the presumptuous editor, proves at
once the writer's ignorance aud the
truth of the editor's criticisms. If
anything else were needed to show
the inefficiency of our present educa
tional methods, "J. V.'s" letter
abundantly supplies the deflcieny. It
is not necessary to bo a teacher in
order to notico that "J. V." is, to
quote his own words, "vastly ig
norant of tho subject he has wiitten
a subject which he, too, has no con
ception," Consider a moment this delectable
gem of the "I been go" variety of
English: "Our young men of today
with tho advantages ottered in our
excellent'school system are certainly
better preparod when he graduates
than the yourth fifteen years ego."
Also the following; "Ambltous young
men today seek a higher education
than that qllered in tho common
schools, and carefully prepare for
their future work, while his school
mate without un ambition or circum
stances moy not permit, ato quito
satisfied with their common school
education, and therefore cannot com
pete with his clum."
What can we think of a system
which not only produces such mur
derers ot our language, but puts them
in charge of important schools?
"J. V." admits that the education
offered in tho common schools is "in
ferlor,' and his letter proves it. tf
tho "Five Step Method" that has,
conduced to this Inferiority is "based
on educational principles," theti by
all means let us get away from such
"piinciplcs" and back to common
