TliO Hoar J nf Eiliicalion is desirous
of securing a complete record of all
property in its care and devoted to
educational purposes. Tin' Superin
tendent of I'uli'.ie Instruction lias
asked tor a survey of every known
school lot, occupied or otherwise.
With this information at hand, the
Hoard proposes to transfer all vacant
property to the appropriate Depart
ment of the Territory, by actual
description, for other public uses
The estimates for the Sui ve Depart,
ment (to be submitted to vou) cover
increased allowances for this work.
You will readily perceive ttut the
cost will be imip than offset by the
use cr dispos.ition'ef property which
is now lying idle.
INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL KULE
ANAS. The developing of the Waialae In
dustrial School on Oahn has aroused
an interest in the titles to neighbor
ing kuleanas long since abandoned
and unoccut ied. In order to prevent
disputes as to water rights and
rights of way, and avoid the possi
bility of having neighbors wh; would
be a menace to the Industrial School,
it is advisable to acquire, by condem
nation or otherwise, as many as
possible of the kuleanas lying in and
around Waialae. It is estimated that
$5,000.00 will be needed for this pur
pose, and I recommend the appro
priation. These parcels of land can
be put to good use by this splendid
institution, which is doing such re
markable work for our wayward
youth and which it is hoped will soon
In the Report of the Superinten
dent of Public Instruction there is
submitted for your consideration a
plan for the centralization of sehoo's
in certain districts of the Islands,
and the providing of transportation
for the scholars by contract. This
plan has already been adopted else
where, and it is believed will make
for economy and greater efficiency,
in that it permits children to enjoy
the benefits of a graded school, as
opposed to the difficulties that are
encountered when children of several
grades arc under one teacher.
A suf;geetion which is well worth
your consideration is the plan of
securing a School Medical Inspector,
who would give his whole time in
going from school to school, examin
ing the children privately and re
porting to the Board of Health the
results of his investigations. If ap
proved by you, a suitable appropri
ation should be placed under the
Board of Health, of probably not
more than one nundred dollars a
month, with an amount sufficient for
The public interest in educational
matters is well illustrated by the use,
for a year or more, of a compara
tively small fund in loan to students
of the Normal School, on which in
terest is paid, and these adva.ices
are returned in monthly installments
as soon as the recipient graduates
and begins to teach in one of the
public schools. The fund is growing,
and as yet there has not been a single
student who lias repudiated the ob
ligation and refused to repay the
It is proposed to develop this idea
and secure a larger fund, by volun
tary subscription, to be used in so
called "honor loans," to enable those
who desire farther preparation for
the more responsible positions under
the public school system to go abroad
and study, the fund, as in the former
case, gradually growing from the
payment of interest and returns from
those who have been benefited under
Your attention is called to a. special
report of the lioatd nf Education,
conforming to a resolution of the last
session of the Legislature, on the
question of a Territorial Agricultural
College. This report covers the laws
under which such institutions have
been established, and recommends
ways and means for an agricultural
college in Hawaii. The benefits con
ferred by such an institution iviil be
apparent to you, and I concur in
approving the report.
The industrial work of our schools
is particularly interesting in that
the firt marked development of this
feature of education in the United
States of America was undoubtedly
modeled on that in the Lyman School
at II 'o and at our histotii- Lahaina
luna. The Territory's progress in
this line is set forth in a special re
pot t of the Departmi nt ol Education,
and your attention is specially called
to it in view of its particular import
ance to Hawaiian
I'KRM AN KN I SKTTLEM ENTS.
The uniort ii'-.n I e and harrowing
accicer.t which occur re'd to Mr. H.
M. Wells, the School Inspector for
Maui, while in the performance of his
duties, will piohabh ii .capacitate him
lor future work, and in conformity
with past precedent. I recommend
that the list of Permanent Settle
ments he increased to include Mrs.
H. M. Welb, and that, a settlement
of four hundred dollars a year be
made to her, in recognition of the
many years of faithful pnbl'c service
on the part of Mr. Wells, first in our
public schools and later as an In
spector. PUBLIC WORKS.
Your deliberations should be guided
by a common interest for the whole
Territory. Your duties, if properly
undertaken, do not maty you partis
ans of either County or Territory.
There is no saving by the transfer
of expenditures from one to the
other. Hut, in view of the separate
corporate powers and responsibilities
the property of one cannot with
reason and propriety be transferred,
without consideration or compen
sation, to the other. This question
of the right to dispose of property is
serious and can no longer be set aside
If it is your desire to enlarge by
amendment the functions, the scope
of the Counties, and give over to each
the court houses and jails, with the
care of prisoners, then in justice to
each County, let the property in each
be appraised and paid for, thus keepi"
ing faith with our Territorial bondi
holders and protecting our credit.
What would be thought of a con
poration which on a showing of assets
floated bonds, and then gradually
transferred its assets, without con1
sidera'jon, to a new and distinct cor
Other public property belonging
to the Territory, such as wharves,
landings and public buildings, need
funds for tl.eir proper care and pre'
nervation. But desides this, now
that the Federal Government has
unJertaken to build a breakwater for
Hilo, there is certain to be a marked
increase in shipping and trade at
that print within the next two years,
and the Territory should be prepared
to offer increased facilities or else a
surrender of the water front to
private enterprise. -The Government
already owns a wharf not now used,
and you are asked to make provision
fonts repair and remodeling.
This breakwater makes it certain
that Hilo is bound to tie the main
port fcr the Island of Hawaii. Caph
tal for needed railroad development
on that Island has sometimes hesitat
ed through fear that Fed e i al experts
might select some other point for
improvement. The determination of
lliis question will I believe, material'
ly enhence the possibility of a Hama
kua railroad. Throughout the Terri
tory there is no great undertaking
which is of more importance than the
construction of this railroad, and I
submit for your consideration the
passage of an Act, through which
the development, during the next
two years, of railro ids tliaf, are com
mon carriers will be exempt from
taxes for ten years. Experience
shows that pioneer railroads increase
the taxable value of real property to
a marked degree, and thus the Terri
tory will suffer no setback in its
income by the passage of such an
Act. (To be continued.)
