Married women I" the bill lo prohibit the on) ploy input of
?or our Schools. maiTied women as touchers tlie leyisl'i
ture is contemplating a stop hack ward. Whenever any qualifica
tion save scholarship, character and experience are required of
our teachers, just then aro the bi.rs let clown, and polities, pin-Mali-ty
and graft enter into the appointment and dismissal of touchers
The argument that married women have other means of sup
port, and ought not to feed at the public crib is ultei ly fallacious.
When an employee is to bo chosen. 0110 ponsideraiion only should
be regarded Is the candidate qualified to d. the work? Of rwi
candidates for t ho same position, the one best, able to do the work
should bo chosen, regardless of her need, her means f support, or
her married or sing'o state. The schools are not. charitable insti
tutions for the support of the dependent: and incapable. They are
institutions for the public benefit, and emit led to the best service
that can be obtained. Who has the greater need of a position, the
competent and energetic teacher, who by thrift and economy has
accumulated a bank account, or the incompetent and thriftless
one, who lives from hand to mouth? Should we adopt the prin
ciple' that the positions should go to ihoso who need them, rather
than to those who can best fill them, our teaching force vrould
soon be recruited from the poorliouse or from the mendicants on
The matter of the efficiency of the schools is one that very nearly
concerns the Hawaiians. The whites commonly send their child
ren to private schools. The Portuguese patronize parochial
schools wherever possible. The Chinese and Japanese maintain
private schools for the traiuing of their children. All these pro
vide for themselves. On the other hand stands the free school,
the institution upon which the training of our future cititons de
pends. Up to this time the public school has had the cordial sup
port of all classes of our people. The sugar planters, our heaviest
tax-payers, have generally favored the schools, although schools
are not to their immediate interest. This has been done that the
Hawaiians may have an equal chance with others in the struggle
for existence. If, now, a blow is struck at the ellicieney of the
publ'c school, a blow is struck at the welfare of the Ha waiian popu
lation. In the United Stales, Oriental competition is so strenuous
that Americans, with every educational advantage, shrink from it.
Without the best educational facilities, how can the Hawaiian hope
to maintain himself against the Mongolian, who undoubtedly is
here to stay?
Wo admit that there are incompetent, teachers in t he schools
There must bo, when one-eighth of the teachers employed are
without certificates. But, no doubt, every teacher in the Terri
tory who has a certificate una can afford to work for the wretched
wages paid, can nave a position. ine trouoie witn our schools h
not that too many married women are employed, but that too many
incompent teachers are on the force. Nor is the remedy the dis
charge of a few married teachers. Those of our legislators who
wish to pose as public benefactors will do well to withhold their
support from a measure which ranks with the famous ' lady dog'
and "female rock" issues. The way to improve the schools is tc
strengthen the hands of the Board of Education so that they may
employ competent teachers, either married or single, and get rid
of the uncertified and incompetent instructors who now must be
employed for lack of funds to procure better ones.
At. a recent meeting of the Board of
Laborers Interests. Supervisors of the County of Maui
resolution was unanimously passed asking the Legislature to li.
the date of meeting of the Board for the first Wednesday after the
fifth day of each month. This was do:ie that the Hoard Lunas and
Road Overseers would have time lo send tho County Clerk the
puy roll for the full moDth instead of a part of the month as is the
custom made necessary at present.
The first resolution was unanimously adopted in December and
was endorsed by the County Committee of the Republican Party
at which meeting Senator Coelho acted as Secretary and was per
fectly fainilier with the wishes of the party of which he clai ns to
be a member. In spite of the resolution by the County Board and
its adoption by the Republican Party Coelho secured the passage of
a bill Axing the date of meeting of the Board for the first Wednes
day of each month and as a consequence the laborers can be paid
each month for but a part of the amount duo them for labor per
formed during the preceding month.
The next meeting of the Board of Supervisors under th? law
will fall on the first day of May. It will be readily seen that it will
be utterly impossible for the pay rolls to bo made out in full and
In the hands of the Clerk in time to be approved by the Board for
a meeting at such an early date and consequently tho laboring men
must suffer. .
Tho measure works a hardship on tho business mon of the
County also as they will have to wait a whole month for supple s
furnished but as they can better afford to wait it will make no
great difference to them. It will, however mako a grout diileionco
iu keeping the accounts in tho ottice of the County Cleric.
At the April meeting of tho Board of Supervisors for the County
another resolution was again introduced ami unanimously carried
asking the Legislature to fix the date at a reasonable time but in
stead of complying' with the request and assisting in tho work
Coelho is reported by the Honolulu press is saying "That the, re
solution was not made at an ollicial meeting of the Board'' "That it
Was one of the many queer actions of that body. "The resolution
was fathered by one Tom Church, who wanted it passed for bus
iness reason." He moved that it be tabled which was done.
Those who are in close touch with the acts of the Board know
that not one of these statements is true and that the passage of the
bill as asked for by tho Board is in the interest of all who have
.in,' wm-k r."- I lip County or have

many Republicans refused to vo'.o for
Coelho and in consequence he received
Ihe bare majoii! y of three votes in
the last campaign on the island of
Maui where he was best known.

I have read the report banded in to
U.e Senate bv the Co;.,mi! tee on Pub
lie Lands re Senate Dill No. 10; and
I trust 'hat if there are any ranehi
men i:i either of tho houses, that they
will be st rong enonirli to prevent the
passage of such a one sided law.
Are the laws for the whole jjroup
of islands to be governed by t lit
wishes of 37 Wabiawa small farmers?
Why should they dictate to a com
mittee how a law is to be farmfd?
Were liny cattlemen invited to the
public ineetir.gs, held to discuss this
bill? If there were they must have
been very blind to ranch interests
generally; for i don't know of any
cattle raiser who hasn't some govern
ment lands ir., or around, his place,
and when this land is linmestcailed,
as 1 suppose most of it will be, in the
future, the homestead r will build les
house, cultivate an acre, or a portion
of one, and then get rich impounding
his neighbor's cattle. Any cowboy
will pull up cattle for half a d.iilar
per head, the balance of f 2 25 goin-;
to Till the coffers of the small farmer.
I know of several ranches where a
mar. could make from fall to $100 per
day. just running in stock because
they walked over his unfenced, cul
tivatei! laud. Or lo put it another
way, ail he would have to do ivniU
be to notify the adjoining cattle
rancher lo fei.ee Lis (the honjestead
er's) land; and if the cattleman had
any sense, he would do it as fast as
possible, for lie would find it cheaper
and belter in the long run.
Theie was a lav passed in 1S!)0 to
stop just this sort of thing, as li e
ranchmen wire at that time liavintr
trouble with homesteaders, who tool
up government land in the center of
the ranches, and all they did for a
living was to impound cattle; oven at
7 J cents per head some lively fellows
did very well.
T . it .
i ueueve in giving every man, no
mat tor whether he be pake, Portu-
guese-or even a V.'ahiawa small far
user, u square deal. If the Wabiawa
small farmer wants to cultivate liis
lands, let him fence it lirst. There
is a law in this country by which he
can compel his neiehuor to pay half
the o.Npru.-.e of a fence between a 1
j lining l ands Let him take advan
tage of that 'aw, fence his land, and
live at peace with his neighbors.
