Distilled Water The committee of the Civic Federation
for the Schools. of Honolulu has recently addressed a
letter to the Department of Public Instructiou requesting that
body to provide distilled water for the use of the school children.
The federations motives are unquestionably good but until the
department has sufficient funds to keep the schools open that are
absolutely necessary it seems to us that distilled water is but a
Pure drinking water not only for school children but for each
and every one of our citizens is of importance.
Distilled water is not necessarily the most condusivo to good
The system accustoms itself to certain local conditions and
sudden or marked changes in those conditions are the causes of
Could it be possible to have distilled water all the time it would
be better than water containing a large percentage of vegetable
matter that much of the water here necessarily has but after the
system becomes accustomed to distilled water and then is supplied
with such water as is often necessarily used the results would in
all probability be moro injurious tnat tlie constant use oi the run
ning water locally and generally used.
It was recently annouced that one of the schools' on Oahu had
been closed for want of funds with which 16 repair it. Nearly
every school in the territory is running short handed for the
want of funds with which to pay the teachers. Every teacher in
the public schools is inadequately paid and to attempt to incorpo
rate visionary scheemos into our school system at tbis time is
What the school childreq need most is skilful teachers in suf
ficient numbers to meet the requirements. To get those the de
partment of education must have more funds with which to
hold those it now has and employ others where needed..
The Evening Bulletin says "No citizeu and no organizition with
a due sense of the relative proportions of educational demands in
Hawaii will allow anything to draw public attention from the policy
of properly providing for first class teachers. The present status
of the teachers salary appropriations is no less out rageous than
the class of stuff now sent through some of the water pipes of
Honolulu and delivered to the people as water."
We are not judges of the quality of the water of Honolulu but
we do know that the number of teachers is wholly inadequate and
the fund available for necessary repairs and employment of skil!
ed teachers is entirely inadequate.
Let those responsible for his condition know tha; a united people
demand justice at the hands of the next legislature and will elect
those who maybe depended on to accomplish it.
Gambling The grand jury that is going so earnestly into the
violations of anti gambling laws are to be congratulated.
Tbe Chinese are inveterate gamblers and violates of many laws
that are necessary to the maintanace of our social "standards.
Keepers and frequenters of houses whose doors are barricaded
and windows barred with heavy iron rods should be kept under
strict surveilance by the police and made to explain their 'mys
terious doings before the grand jury.
The attention or ine grana jury is called to toe met tnat in
Kahului is a house that has more the appearance "of a county jail
than a boarding house and the doings therein should be investigat
" Those who make it their business to study out means by which
they may defy our laws should be taught that they are expected
to engage in some other line of work or crush work for our public

masses of the people than either of the two executives the terri

The position is not an easy one to fill nor do we believe any one
