The address by Principal C, E.
Copeland concerning the future
aims of tho Wailuku School was
given tho plnco of honor on tho
program, and was so completo and
succinct nn address that tho News
gives it in full as follows:
It i tho purposo of tho Depart
ment of Public Instruction to build
up in Wailuku a school which will
offer the people of Maui educational
facilities equal to those of Oahu.
Tho Wailuku School will comprise
both a common Bchool and a High
School. The people of Maui who
desiro facilities for advanced educa
tion will find those facilities here.
There will bo no need to Bend your
children to Honolulu or elsewhere.
The teachers in tho grades of this
school muBt hereafter hold first
grade certificates. No lower stan
dard of qualification will be accept
ed. Teachers of advanced subjects
in tho High School department will
bo furnished as they may be needed.
Any proper plan or schemo of edu
cation keeps in view three things:
1st. Information, 2nd. Training,
3rd. Character. No education which
omits any one of theso tlireo things
is complete. Tho pupil must havo
information, that ho may know
something of tho world in which ho
lives; ho must havo training, that
ho may put his knowledgo to good
uso, and ho must havo charactor,
that ho may live in a propor man
ner and become a useful metnbor
of society. Theso three things are
to be kept constantly in mind by
the management of this school.
Tho efforts of tho teachers will con
tinually bo directed towards giving
our pupils tho most thorough and
practical preparation possible for
their work in life. Wo havo no
"fads" or theories to exploit at the
cxpenso of tho pupils and tax-payers.
Our methods are those ap
proved by experience and common
sense. We shall work towards a
definite end, which ib this: A good,
sound English education, accom
panied by tho ability to do somo
useful work in the world and by the
desiro to live as good and public -spirited
citizens of the United
We realize that while the minds
of our pupils should be cultivated,
their hands must not bo neglected.
Therefore, aB fast as facilities can
bo provided, various kinds of
manual training will bo introduced.
Needlework, both plain and orna
mental; freehand and mechanical
drawing; printing and carpentry
are already provided for. Wo ex
poct to make a flower-garden of the
front of this school yard, and I
hope before long to establish a cook
ing school also. It is not our ex
pectation, in this manual school
work, to turn out carpenters, prin
ters or cooks, qualified to earn
wages as such; but rather to give
pupils an opportunity to practise
and develop any skill or aptitude
they may possess, and so help them
to find a suitable and congenial
In the High School department
wo are beginning with tho subjects
of United States History, Commer
cial and Higher Arithmetic, Eng
lish Grammar, and Composition, Al
gebra, Advanced Geography, Book
keeping, Objective' Geometry and
Latin. Other subjects will bo ad
ded as they may be called for. Our
design is to adapt tho instruction
to the needs and the ability of tho
I have endeavored to give an out
line of tho work which we expect
to do in tho new Wailuku School.
This is a largo contract and will
require hard work on our part to
fulfil it. But this is only a part
of all wo hope to do in this beauti
ful building. Wo hope that tho
school will grow into an institu
tion that it will become the center
of the social and intellectual life of
tho town. Wo expect to give, in
this comfortable assembly hall,
entertainments that will afford op
portunities of bringing the school
and the citizens into close and
harmonious relations with each
other. We hope that this hall will
become the meeting placo for all
gatherings which havo for their
object the improvement and better
ment of the community. Wo hope
that you, as citizens of Wailuku,
will look on this as your house, be
longing to you, paid for with your
money, and hero for your benefit,
and that you will take a particular
and personal interest in it and tho
work which it shelters.
Tho Legislature has provided you
with this school house, tho finest
though not tho largest in the Ter
ritory up to this time. The De
partment of Education has pro
vided teachers and equipment, and
stands ready to supply more as they
may be needed, lho teachers are
prepared to do their best to carry out
tho plans of tho Department. From
now on tho responsibility for success
or failure lies with you. Good build
iugs, efficient teachers and generous
equipment cannot insuro tho sue
cesa of this school. Pupils aro a
nosessity. Tho hearty good will
and cooperation of the citizens is
essential. Without those, the others
aro largely wasted. I, therefore,
in behalf of tho teachers and the
Depat tment of Public Instruction,
urge you to stand by your school.
Give us tho encouragement of your
prosonco at tho school. Visit us
and seo for yourselvos how wo are
doing your work- Tho interest of
tho parent is the greatest encour
agtinent to both pupil and teach'
ers. If we work together for the
upbuilding of the public school,
I feel sure that the Wailuku School
will be an' institution of which we
may be proud.
Formal addresses as outlined in
tho program were delivered by
Principals H. M. Coke, Moses Ka
uhimahu, C. E. Copeland, D. D.
Baldwin and S. It. Dowdle, all be
ing able and masterly expositions
of Uie topics handled. This was
followed by a general discission on
Orthography, during which the
criticisms of Maui teachers by the
News wero reviewed, and regret
was expressed that tne onerous
duties of press day caused the en
forced absence of the editor of the
News, who, if present, might have
gotten closor to tie actual work of
tho Maui teachers and learned
much to his advantage concerning
school methods. It is to be regret
ted that space is not availabia for
all the addresses, as they wero with
out exception most instructive and
helpful to teachers. Incidently,
the music of .the sextet, led by
Mosob Kauhimahu, formed one of
the most enjoyable features of the
At the close of the regular pro
gram, the Association proceeded to
tho election of officers for the en
suing year the result being as fol
lows: S. R. Dowdle, President;
Moses Kauhimahu, Vice-President;
Miss Rogers, Secretary.
The next meeting of tho Associa
tion is to be held at the new school
houso at Lahainilunn, December
Blrbe's Schoolhouse Burned.
Henry C. Birbo Jr., has lost his
job as school master. He has not
been bounced under the cloud that
certain individuals tried to raise
about him but his reported loss of
employment is due to the elements.
They appear to havo conspired
According to a report received
this morning from the Koolau side
of the island the school house at
Kaaawa where Birbe was to open
school on Monday was burned
down last Thursday night so now
Birbo has no place where he had
herd his scholastic lambs unless
ho can find some sheltering tree or
house where tho children may be
assembled. Tho details of the des
truction of the school building
could not be learned. A report
was mado simply to the' effect that
the building had been destroyed
Birbe proposes to stand by his
guns, iiro or no fire, school house or
no school house. He proposes to
bo tho man behind tho gun as it
wore, to teach the youthful mind
to shoot. .
. The new pedagogue called upon
Governor Carter this morning to
confer with the governor regarding
certain attacks that have been
made against the character and
ability of the newly appointed
school teacher. Birbo had certifi
cates which he was prepared to
produce to Governor Carter, in or
der to demonstrate fitness for the
position. Governor, Carter said
that the matter of tho appointments
of school teachers rested with the
Superintendent of Public Instruc
tion and ho did not caro to have
anything to do with tho matter.
Birbo was very angry over tho
publication made against him and
threatened to institute a libel suit
against a local evening paper for
an attack made upon him yester
Govornor Carter also stated that
ho understood that tho appoint
ment of Birbo was only a tempora
ryone. Tho school at Kaaawa
was a new institution and Birbe
was tho best appointee that could
bo made for tho present to attend
to the oponing of the school. The
school will open Monday. Friends
of higher education no doubt hope
that tho roport of tho destruction
of the school was an error. Semi
