MEETING OF THE A1AUI TEACH
The Maui Teachors' association
hold its annual meeting at 10 A.
M. Monday, December 4th, 1905,
at Piepcr's Hotel, Paia. President
S. R Dowdlo was in tne chair and
Mrs.,C. E. Copeland at tho Secre
Somo forlj'-fivo teachers were
present, and responded to roll-call
witli appropriate quotations.
Mr. Dowdlo read, ns the opening
number on tho programme, a time
ly paper on the topic of present
salaries. He criticised the attitude
taken by many influential people
regarding education in Hawaii. To
restrict educational facilities is
un-Airierican, as well as detrimen
tal to tho best interests of tho Ter
ritory. The salary question is vital.
Teachers aro expected to have pro
fessional training; to keep abreast
of professional and current reading;
to dress suitably and to occupy a
respectable place in societj'. All
this requires "monej , and money
means salary. Tho teachers ought
to stand together in a determined
effort to have their salaries raised
to a sufficient figure.
Inspector H. M. Wells followed
with a most excellent paper, on the
teaching of Reading. The teaching
of reading is closely related to the
general teaching oUanguage. The
subject should Ti!fflf tfmglTt with a
definito endjwP' This view
should hjiopecial reference to
the future lifojand citizenship of

The truo method is alphabetic and
not ideographic. The ear should

own interpretation of what they

Mr. Wells' paper was followed
by a discussion in which Messrs.
Hardy, Crook, Copeland and Baza
ta took part.
Mrs. Saboy delivered an interest
ing paper on tho topic: "How to
Induco Children to Study and to
Speak Out " Tho leading thought
of this paper was that tho teacher
should bo tho model of industry
and expression. Mrs. Sabey's ac
count of a day in which she imitat
ed tho manner of speech of some of
her most troublesome pupils was
fully appreciated by her audience.
Mr. McDonald's paper on manual
training was read by Mr. Copeland.
Miss Mary Fleming read a paper
entitled "Heart Culture." This
topic was treated as meaning kind
ness to animals.
Mr. Dickenson's paper on "Lau
hala work in tho Public Schools''1
aroused much interest. Manual,
training in the schools djitcs from
the visit of Col. Parker to tho Is
lands. Lauhala work is educative,
instructive and may be made pro
fitable in a pecuniary sense. Mr.
Dickenson explained the various
processes involved in tho gathering,
preparation, braiding and weaving
An adjournment was taken at
this point in tho proceedings, in
order to discuss an excellent lunch
eon provided by Landlord Pieper.
After luncheon Mr. Anjou pre
sented a paper on "Discipline."
The last paper on the program
me was read by Mr. Vincent, on
the topic "Agriculture." Mr. Vin
cent gave some of his own expe
riences in teaching this subject,
and maintained that intelligent
interest in agriculture, and not
technical knowledge, is the proper
end to bo attained by school work
in this branch.
The general discussion, "How
shall we get our salaries restored?''
was opened by Miss Crook. We
must awaken interest upon this
subject among parents as well as
in the Legislature. The schools,
and through them the public, suff
er from tho ill effects of the de
crease in salaries. Many of the
poorer paid teachers are unable to
livo on their wages in any proper
way. School-teaching is not a
matter of sentiment. It is a matter
of hard work a work that most
would not do at any price
and the teacher should receive a
wage that would enable him to
live in a respectable manner.
Mr. Aiken thought that the
Mongolian question had entered
into the consideration of this ques
tion, and had somowhat influenc
ed the Legislature in their decision
not to raise salaries at the last
session. Besides, the average
school-teacher's salary looks lib
eral to the average voter, and the
salaries of some of the more high
ly paid teachers seem generous to
many of our legislators. Of course,
all this makes tho question more
difficult of satisfactory adjustment,
but there is every reason to think
that if the teachers and their
friends go earnestly to work in
tho proper way the next legislature
will listen to their request.
Mr. Crook read some figures
that showed that tho average wage
of women teachers is far lower in
Hawaii than in twelve or fifteen of
the States, although the cost of
living is much higher here.
Mr. Hardy was of tho opinion
thac the objection regarding Mon
golians had beon ably refuted by
Messora. Dickenson, Copeland
and Hardy were appointed a com
mittee to communicate with other
teachers' organizations in tho
Territory, and to formulate a plan
looking towards the restoration of

OPINION ATTORNEY GENERAL.
Honolulu, Nov. 29th, 1905.
OPINION NO. 233.
What is meant by the words
"actually begin service'' in the
Revised" Rules .and regulations of
tho department of Public Instruc
tion? Hon. W. H. Babbitt,
Supretendent of Public In
struction, Judiciary Building, City.
Your valued communication of
ihe 17th inst. in which you request
the opinion of this Department in
tho above entitled matter, has
been duly considered, and I desire
to report and adviso as follows:
Tho regulation quoted in your
communication clearly defines the
relation between the teacher and
the Department of Public Instruc
tion. It is not only provided there
in that a teacher's name shall not
appear on the pay roll"
unless said teacher has actually
begun service," but it further pro
vides that no teacher shall recoive
"any compensation until ho or she
actually begins services."
The language employed is plain
and I am of tho opinion that ir
respective of tho date of appoint
ment, tho regulation prohibits tho
payment or receipt of compensa
tion until the services actually
begin. It makes no difference
what intervenes to postpone
actual services. The Superinten
dent of tho Department, as well as
the teachers thereof, aro bound by
its duly passed and promulgated
rules and regulations, and even
the Superintendent himself has no
power to go outside of those rules.
Tho rule .fixes the timo when com
pensation shall begin, and prohi
bits any other understanding but
that of compensation when tho
Hoping that tho foregoing meets
with your requirement, I havo tho
honor to bo, sir,
Very respectfully yours,-(S.ingodyE;.q..p3fest,.
