Coelho Hid the Public Senator Coelho is otio of tlio bittorost
School System. antagonists of t ho Dopiirtmont of
Education anil in ins zo:i) for riirryingr out the platform pledges wo
feel that ho is attacking the Department unjustly for the sins the
inspectors of the past committed rather than any lack of tidtninis
tratioti of the alTairs of the Department by the present. Superinten
dent and his able Commissioners.
The Course of study and school system which is now in force
was principally the work of that able instructor, the late Super
intendent Alatau T. Atkinson. It is the work of a master hand
and would be hard to improve upon. The Commissioners of Edu
cation have at all times sought to advance the cause of education
and have given freely their time to advance the interests of the
young and have done excellent work.
A great majority of t he teachers are honestly and ernestly work
ing for the uplifting of the children in their care and deserve the
highest commendation for their efforts. Occasionally however,
conditions arose that demanded investigation and prompt action
on the part of the Department but through the incompetency or
indifference of the Inspectors were passed causing the pub
lic to distrust or discredit the Department. This caused such
general dissatisfaction that the public f el r, that.it would be better
to have the schools under the controll of locn) boards appointed
by the Governor to have charge of the schools in each county sub
ject to such general supervision of the central board as the Leg
islature might think best and culminated in the insertion of that
plank in the Republican platform that was adopted last September
Although this was done siuce the present Superintendent had
charge of the work it was done without fully realizing the excel
lent work he is having carried out. The work of the present
Superintendeut and Board is as nearly perfect as it is possible to
do under a centralized system. Their work is a revelation to those
who had judged the work from former conditions.
The work now being done by the inspectors is a great improve
ment on the work of that of years past and does not deserve the
bitter denunciation that it is now receiving.
While local boards, if judiciously chosen would boubtless be in
closer touch with the patrons of the schools and in some respects
be an improvement over the central board it must not be forgot
ten that it would cost much more to keep up live separate systems
than it does one.
Let the members of the Legislature refrain from personalities
and rellections on the work of the Superintendent and assistants.
Errors of employes in the past can not properly be charged
against the present administration. Let Coelho study the methods
and system now in force before passing judgement on a matter
of vital importance to thousands of his countrymen who would
suffer by any error of the Legislature and who are yet too young
to protest against the wrong.
The Governors Had those members of the Legislature from
Big Stick. Maui who opposed the acceptance of the
gift of the $30,000 from the Federal Government known of the at
titude of many of the staunchest Republicans toward them for the
stand they were taking it is more than probable that they would
have said less than they did about the 'natter, regardless of their
private feelings of the same.
Many of the truest members of the party have openly stated
that they intended to keep tab on the members in the Legislature
and under no circumstances would they again vote in convention
or in the elections for any man who would refuse to accept the
money offered by the Federal Government and thereby squander
thousands of the peoples money that is so badly needed for public
The Governors "big stick" was a blessing in disguise f.ir those
who would throw away the gift in order to get a few dollars for
"their own personal benefit regardless of the drain upon the trea
sury. No fair minded person will claim that the members are justly
paid for the time spent in the Legislature but that is no excuse
for spurning the gift of thousands of dollars for the sake of the
possibility of getting a few for their own benetit.
We believe the members of each house should get at. least three
times the amount now paid but we believe too that the best
way to attain that end is by honest intelligent work and not by

The four old maids were impersonat
ed by Misses Steele, Cunninham,
Fleming, and Ethel Smith, and the
old loche!o.-s by D. T. Fleming, Harry
Foss Geo. Steele and Mr. Darnell all
were in costume.
The finale of the play was the ac
ceptance of matrimonial propositions

the marching from the stage arm in

Another amusing occurrence was
the reading by D. C. Lindsay of an
original poem depicting in a hum
orous maimer the erratic actions of
Dr. MeConkey's automobile when
stimulated by denatured alcohol.
Thr.se in the secret state the author
of the poem, Johnny Sabey, had in
mind not the Doctor's but Mr. Lind
The poem us originally written
was as follows:
A HANKER AND HIS AUTO VIS
A hanker had an auto,
That was gentle swift and kind.
A finer piece of racing goods,
Tw.iuld be a task to find.
A little child could drive it,
Itwas loved by one and all,
Until one day he fed the thing
D natured alcohol.
Now, something in that alcohol,
Was out of hack, I guess,
For when he grasped the steer
With lover like caress,
And gently pulled the low speed on,
That auto gave a snort,
And fell to making circles,
Like a fizz infested sport.
The crowd looked on in wild amaze,
And !i udly hollered "Whoa"
As down Main street like fourty
The ear began to go.
And when he turned the
All nervous like and quick,
In -tead of sounding,
"Honk, honk, honk"
The thing went,
"Hick, hick, hick."
And as it turned the corner by,
Kimuras Liquor Store,
It made a swerve, but all in vain,
For he had closed the door.
That auto went plumb crazy,

grocers, would you get a divorce ? From the other grocer

In the last issue of the News we
published a statement to the effect
that Mr. W. W. Wescoalt was to be
temporarily in charge of the mill at
Puunene as chief engineer until a
man could be had from the coast. As
the party who gave us the inform
ation was unquestionably reliable we
made the statement as we under
stood the matter but have since
learned that we were in error and
that Mr. Wescoatt was appointed
to the position permanently. His
many friends will be pleased to know
of his nroinotlon.
