The arrival of the news of the

sible to niako up the entire per

will be strongly Republican, but
for the victory of Democrats and
Fusionisls on Hawaii, practically
entirely so. The two Houses will
be us follows:
Senate Oahu: Lane (holdover
R); Dowsutt (holdover (II): Bishop

Smith (R); McCarthy (D). Maui:

The holdover Senatorp, all Re
publicans, contribute greatly to
wards making the Senate a Re
publican body in the main. Palmer
,Voods will, however, be relieved
of the burden of being the lone
Dumociat, as he was last session,
as there will be three Democrats
this session. All the rest arc Re
publicans. In the House the political parties
are all represented, but in propor
tion the Republican majority is
even greater than it is in the Sen
ate. There are twenty six Repu
blicans, one Homo Ruler and
three Home Rule-Denoerats.'

Hamakuapoko, Maui, T. H.,
November 1, 100G,
Mr. W. H. Babbitt, Superintendent
of Public Instruction, jjonolulu.
Dear Sir: I beg to acknowledge
the receipt of your favor of October
30, and to thank you for your kind
and prompt reply to the question of
which I wrote you last week.
Since tho Board wishes to consider
each case in which children are al
lowed to remain out of school on ac
count of their parents' needs, I shall
have to ask your attention to two
other cases. These I did not mention
last week for the reason that I ex
pected that your reply might in a
general way cover them.
One case is that of a Porto Rican
; boy about eleven years old. The bjy's
lather deserted tho mother and tho
child some time ago. The motberMs
old and is not strong enough to do
tho work of a common laborer.
The other case is that of a Porto
Rlcan girl, ubout twelve year.s old,
tho oldest girl in a family of six child
ren, whose mother has rim uway
from her home. Two son9 over fif
teen years of ago are at work on the
plantation. They say that' tho com
bined earnings of the father and tho
sons are not sufficient to supply tho
family with food and clothing and to
hire a woman to do tho cooking and
take caro of the younger childron,
one of whom is in school, while ono is
a more baby.
The Porto Rieans furnish us with
vexing questions of poverty and shift
lessness. In school, however, the
children of whom we have twenty
two enrolled are bright and interest
ing, in spite of their hard lives and
their Jack of good home influences.
Awaiting your decision, I am, veiy

A letter from Miss Tlcer, principal
of tho Kdeuea school, Kauai, from
which position she was removed at
tho last meeting of tho Board, was
read. She "roasted" Inspector Bald
win and charged him with having '
been inattentive to her school and
with having failed to make lucid ex
planations of just what he wished to
have done. She state: that tho ac
tion of the Board embarrassed hor
somewhat, as she had made certain
arrangements for the coming school
year and gone to considerable ex
pr use in many matters.
The Board agreed with Mr. Bab
bitt however, that the action of the
Board should not be changed. Miss
Ticor will be offered a teacher's posi

new principal will be appointed to
Mr. Babbitt stated that he had
made up a list of live names of pro
miucut educationists here to go over

Baldwin, who wero to determine

ficial text book for the island schools.
These names had been submitted to
both gentlemen, who replied that the
list was satisfactory. Those named
are Prof. M. M. Scott, Dr. W. T.
Brigl am, J. F. Brown, Mrs. Nina D.
L. Fraser and Miss Rhode Green.

Superintendent MacDonald of Lalmi
ualuna school and the Department
of Public Instruction and tho Depart

Lahalnaluna water contest, tho La
hainaluna school is still in the attitude
of fighting for its water rights a

is supposed to get water forfour and

a large amount of water. Superin
