MANCHURIA NOW SAPIi
dipt. Motcnlf was tho happiest
ninn in Honolulu Inst night, niul
at tho sain? time was full of busi
ness as anyone could be. llo had
accomplished what was deemed a
most nnpossiblo in taking the
Manchuria from her dangerous
position on the Waimanalo reef
but when she was coming into
port he was greeted from the pilot
boat which came out to meet the
liner, with tho news that the Mon
golia was ashore at Midway.
The Manchuria was pulled
yesterday with such case that those
on board tho vcbscIs which wore
tugging on her could hardly realize
that their efforts had been success
fill. The pull yesterday was com
menced at 11 o clock, the Restorer
Manning and Iroquois having line
on board and tho little Eleu hav
ing a line from tho Iroquois and
thus bringing her strain on th
same cable. Tho winches on the
Manchuria were also working on
the kedge anchors that were ou
and the big liner commenced
At 1 o'clock the Manchul-i
whistled to stop pulling and then
every boat present turned loose her
steam whistle ond tho uproar could
be heard for miles. Tho Manchuria
was floated and the work whic
Capt. Metcalf had come for from
San Francisco has been accom
nt .i .i
niioruy alter tiie signal was
given to start for Honolulu and
with the Restorer in tho lead, tow
ing the liner as if she was a play
thing, the start for port was made
The Iroquois had a line on th
Manchuria's stern and was pulling
to a certain degree against th
Restorer, in order to keep tho big
ship's stern straight, but in spite
of this a ten-knot gait was kept uj
till Diamond Head was passed
The .Manning remained a little be
hind, takingjn her anchors, and
men ioiiowcu. mo facitic was
left to look after the work of kedges
which had been placed and whicl
did so important n part in the
I ho Manchuria was left outside
tho harbor last night and this
morning the opportunity of exam
ming her hull in tho clear water
was taken advantage of by Capt
Motcalf, who sent his divers down
for that purpose.
At noon tho tug Fearless and
the Iroquois went out to bring her
into port and she will remain here
for about fifteen days, at the end
of which time it is expeMed repairs
will have been completed to such
a ttegrce that she will bo able to
go to San Francisco under her own
steam. 1 here she will be placed
in tli3 dry dock aClIunter's Point
and the work of making repairs
will be taken up.
In regard to this work Capt.
The Manchuria's propellors are
bent at tho ends but are not so
damaged that she cannot get along
pretty well. She is leaking a little
but this does not amount too much
and wo are able to handle it with
out dilliculty with tho ship's
pumps. It should take about fif
teen days to make tho temporary
epairs which will bo needed and
then she can go up to San Fran
cisco under her own steam. Her
condition is much better than one
would expect after tho time she
has been on tho tho reef."
Captain Metcalf said on Sunday
night: "I expect that tho Man-
huria will bo in readiness to pro
ced under her own steam to San
Yancisco in ten or fourteen days.
Sho will carry no passengers, how
ever. There aro some repairs, min
or ones, to bo made to tho ongines,
but tho more important repairs arc
to be mado on tho saddles under
tho boilers. There aro also some
minor leaks to bo stopped, but they
on't amount too much. I will
ave my assistant here in chargo
of tho Manchuria.'
Tho matter of prize money

The Manning and tho IroquoiB aro I
not to be considered in this matter
as they are government boats and
will have no share. But in the
caso of tho Restorer each man
should have a tidy little sum com
ing to him, the amounts varying
according to rank. Tho amount of
salvage which can be collected will
probably bo adjudged by tho
courts and will mean a pretty legal
battle. The little Eleu should como
in for hor share, as well aB the
Fearless and the Intcr-Tsland boats,
which took part in tho work on the
The Restorer is probably entitled
to more than any of the other
boats, to a very great extent, as
she has had a line on the Manchu
ria over since sho went out to' Wai
manalo and has done yeoman work
out there. It is sato to say when
all the claims for salvage have been
filed they will reach the total value
of tho Manchuria, but when they
are settled by tho courts it will be
quite another story and they will
not bo so heavy, though it is
doubftul if they will fall under

A proper method for emptying the
largest public schools in the city of
pupils to forestall panics at fires, is a
matter which Superintendent of Pub
He Instruction Babbitt will take up
In the near future. e proposes a
system for the Kaahumatm. Kaiula
ni, Royal and Normal schools. Ho
desires to cmptv the buildings of
pupils in the lt-ast possible time.
There .ire reasons, suggested the
Superintendent at the regular meet
ing of the school board yesterday
afternoon, why a panic might break
out sometime, although the buildings
aro supposedly free from the proba
bility of being burned.
Assistant Fire Chief Decring atone
time drilled the students of the Nor
mal school to leave the building at a
fire signal and carried out tho plan
successfully. It is not unlikely that
lur. peering may ue caueti into con
sultation on the proposed system.
At yesterday s. meeting besides the
superintendent and secretary .there
were present Mrs. J. M. Dowsett, V
R. Farrington, C. L. Wight and
David Ai, school commissioners.
A number of changes among teach
ers were given out. fcince assign
ment ol teachers to the schools be
fore the commencement of the fall
term, some have resigned and some
have exchanged places, while others
have been promoted. Mrs. Hofgaard,
principal of Kiliei school has resign
ed, as her husband, who was emp'oy
cd at a nearby plantation, has given
up his post.
Hutu iiaker was empowered to
open a private school' in Central
Kona, This will take tho overflow
from the public schoolhouse, which is
very much overcrowded. Miss Ella
Paris, school agent, recommended
Sam Mahuka Spencer was appoint
ed school agent for North Kohala.
There will be no school at Puako.
This is a matter which tho depart
ment will take up later. There has
been a lack of accommodation's for
tho teacher. The last, a young man,
had his sleeping quarters in the
Miss McDonald of the Normal
school was allowed a small am mat to
mako up a difference in her vacotion
Thos. Kaai, principal of the Ala",
Kona, school, was given a life certil!-
cate, having rounded out the rc-
uisite number of years to obtain
this cherished document. Ho began
teaching in Hk public schools in 1891
nd for thirteen years has been at
the head of the Alae school. The in-1
pector's report on Kaai shows that
o is progressive teacher.
The school year will compriso 38
weeks, divided as follows:

Superintendent Babbitt stated that
i Massachusetts the school yerr
imprised abrut -10 weeks. In New
ork state the avciago was 3.)
ceks, although in New York city it
comprised 39 weeks

The superintendent announced that
tlm Inspectors wero to make a com
plete circuit of their districts this
term to report on the amount nceos
sary for repairs to schools and
grounds, so that an estlniato may bo
propared for presentation to tho

Kawalhapni hdiool on this island will
be completed In about 20 days.
Ihe superintendent reported the
fence between the lialulaiii und the
Girls' Industrial schools had been
moved about 50 feet eastward or into
the industrial grounds, giving nv'ch
needed space to tho Ifaiulanl school.
Tho upper part of the fance has beer
taken down and the Ivaiulani school
now appears to better advantage
from the street.
As to Mr. May II Id who is the man
ual training instructor. Mr. BabbiU
staled Unit he wastogive u.structiun
to elasses from the Royal, Kaahu
manu and other large schools at tho
Normal school where he would have
his headquarters. It is the purpose
of tho department to have kits of
tools at all the largo schools so that
instruction may be given and in time
the students may make repairs that
may be found necessary to tho build
ings. This will all be in tho nature
of practical instruction. Mr. Mayfield
is also practically head carpenter for
the public schools department; Tho
dopartment expects through him and
the instruction ho gives to the boys
that much expense will be saved.
