House I its sober moments the House restored tho
Reconsiders salary of tho entomologist for tho Hoard of
Agriculture. Now repeat this wisdom by placing the Hoard of
Health bacteriologist again in the salary list. Don't let it bo said
of Hawaii that it has by majority vote not only gone over to quacks
and fakirs, but completely deserted modern science and medicine.
This is to the point and should be heeded by the Legislature.
Liquor Much of the time of the Legislature lias been
Legislation, taken up by the consideration of the liquor
bills introduced in the Senate and so far little progress has been
mado in the reformation of tho unsatisfactory conditions. That the
liquor laws need amending is admitted by all classes of people.
Among those asking for amendments were those opposed to the
liquor trafic as well as those who are actively engaged in its salo.
In the matter of high licenses it has seemed strange that the two
opposing forces were agreed on tho advisability of high licenses.
A few simple amendments to tho present law could easily have
been made that would have corrected tbe objectionable features
and saved the legislators much valuable time.
Now that tho Government Dispensary system of South Carolina
has proven such a failure and has been abandoned another of the
vagaries of the anti-liquor faction has exploded.
Abolish Commissioners There is a great deal to recotn
o! Education. mend the proposal of the House
to abolish the Hoard of Education and to turn over the adminis
tration of the schools to a responsible head. While we have no
interest in the Lahaina controversy, and so far as wo know, the
successful applicant may be as fully qualified as tho other, yet the
Board of Education have published a rule that only teachers hold
ing grammar grade certificates are eligible to appointment as
principals of schools having an enrolment of 200 pupils. The
appointee has no such certificate. It would seem that this rule
applies in this case, and why the Hoard chose to disregard it does
not appear. Presumably tho inspector who was on the ground
and made investigation into tho circumstances was informed of
the facts, and his report ought to have guided the Board in mak
ing the appointment. This is not the only instance of gross favor
itism that can be charged against the Hoard. Not long ago the
principalship of one of the most important schools on this island
became vacant, and in making the appointment to tho place tea
chers born here, of long experience and of undoubted qualifications
were passed over, the recommendation of the local inspector was
ignored, and a person of no reputation and littlo experience was
given the place. It was openly alleged at tho time that the ap
pointee procured her appointment through "'pull" with the Board.
We have no hesitancy in affirming that every self-respecting,
capable and competent teacher would prefer to deal with ono res
ponsible individual and every sycophant who depends upon in
fluence, favor ''pull" would choose the present Board system.
We want During the visit to Maui of Secretary Atkinson
Justice. vigorous kicks were made at the unjust discrim
ination against Maui and the other islands by the Government in
One of the complaints made was the attitude of the Governor in
the matter of the building of a court house for the use of tho Cir
cuit Court. Secretary Atkinson stated that it was not proper to
go to the Governor for this improvement but that the people here
Bhould have the matter attended to by the legislature.
Judging from the attitude of the present Governor in the matter
we are inclined to think he is right. We should not waste time
with the Governor for his actions in the past makes it only too
plain what he will do in the future to justify us in the belief that
any justice may be expected from him in this matter.
While our taxes actually paia amount to over two hundred and
fifty thousand doHars per annum and while the Legislature four
years ago passed an appropriation of $35,000.00 for tho purpose
of building a court house here the Governor ignorod the matter
and allowed the appropriation to lapse. Two years later the Legis.
lature appropriated $25,000.00 for the same purpose and at the
same time appropriated $200,000.00 for Water Works General Ho
nolulu afier refusing to appropriate funds for the Nuuanu dam.
The Governor soon after had tbe money expended on the Nuuanu
dam that was intended for general work for the water system but
not one cent for the courthouse for Maui and now wishes to have
the balance of the money that is still in the treasury reappropriat
ed for various purposes among which in an item of $1)0,000.00 for
the Nuuanu dam that he may carry through a pet scheme and by
including in the bill items for the outer islands he evidently hopes
to deceive the members into making the appropriations and then
be as free as ever to let the matters of interests to tho outer coun
ties lapse as he has the others in the past.
It is in the power of the members of tho Legislators to hold up
sone of the Governors pet schemes and force the expenditure of
funds appropriated by the former Legislature for just causes. It
would be far better to refuse to pass any of the items included in
the late bill o! the administration than to allow such acts as have
been done to go on unchecked.
Neither the Governor nor tbe newspapers of the capital have
dared to make a statement of the amounts expended in the various
counties nor will they do so for it is an indisputable fact that Ho
nolulu is getting the benefit of much larger sums of money each
year that the amount of taxes she pays will justify.

Get After The School Board.
There was a meeting of the commit
tee from tho legislature with the
Board of Education yesterday rela
tive to the action of the Board in ap
pointing Miss Hadley pri nc'pal of the
Lahaina school over the recommen
dations of Superintendent of Public
Instruction Babbitt and his inspec
tors. Tho school superintendent and
his inspectors had recommended Mrs.
Gannon for the place.
It appealed from the statements
of members of tho Board that Bishop
Restarick and Sister Albcrtina had
been interesting themselves In the
appointment of Miss Hadley. In reply
to questions by the members of tne
legislature, the members of the school
board stated that they had disregard
ed the recommendation of the super
intendent and named Miss Hadley,
because they felt that she as one of
thw subordinate teachers in the La
haina school should be promoted and
given an opportunity for an advance
in her position in the schools. Tl e
outside interest in her favor had not
however influenced them in the least.
The Superintendent explained that
he had favored the appointment of
Mrs. Gannoii because t-he was, he
thought, better qualified ai d in every
way competent to bo principal
members ol the Bmrd who
present, Mrs. Dowsett, SV. R. Fa
rington, C. J. Hulchins and F. S
Dodge, passed a resolution recon
firming their previous appointment
of Miss Hadley.
The purpose of the members of the
legislative coinittees was to ascer
tain the charges of favoritism that
have been preferred against the
school department. Tl e conference
took place in cousequei.ee of the re
solution introduced by Representa
tives Pali in the House yesterday.
The committees will report later.
They may recommend that the school
board be abolished entirely. Star.
