Promptly at 12 o'clock tho Pniki
band came down tho street and the
crowd naturally followel, when
they had played a couple of popular
airs the fair and hunt waR declared
open and every body went to it as
though it would bo the only chance
left to get a square meal.
The Band led by Father Francis
kept on playing popular airs while
guosts enjoyed the feast.
Some of the older Hawniians who
wore too old to make things for the
fair came with their hookupu,
pudding pigs, chickens, potatoes,
oranges, and bananas, every thing
was welcome, as there was an ex
perienced auctioneer here from the
coast, and be gave his scrvises
gratis for tho good work. ' In no

whole district that only a hand fall

natives of all creeds came to tho

The gross receipts were some
where near the 700 dollar mark
and as all tho work was done by
the church people there was very
little that wont for expenses.
They cleared above all expenses
the sum of $610.10.
There wns over a thousand souls
present that day, and the Sheriff
F. Witttock nnd his corps of of

the way order was kept.
At a meeting of the Kaupakalua
Wine & Liquor Co. held at the
winery Oct. 26th it was voted to
declaro a dividend of one hundred
per cent, by the issuance of stock.
The present capitalization is $(5,000
which is to be increased to $25,000,
the stock holders to take $0,000 of
the additional issue as dividends.
Tho money obtained by the sale of
the remaining $13,000 worth is to
be used in constructing a larger
taclory or winery at Kaupakalua
which is much needed.
During tho month of October,

Too Many Play Studies unci not
Honolulu, Nov. 5. Mrs. Dowsett,
Commissioner of the BoarYl of Edu
cation, opened up an attack on the
whole school system of tho Territory
at tho meeting of the BoTtrd yester
dty. She condemned the "City
Government" institution, recently
inaugurated at the Royal School, as
a new plaything that was taking the
attention of the children off their
studies, and stated that there was an
undercurrent of opposition to the
whole manner in which the schools of
Wie Territory wero conducted. Too
much time was davotcd to fads and
toa little to laying tho proper ground
work for an oducntion, especially in
the lower grades.
'"Candidly, I must say that I do not
favor this 'City Government' plan of
yours," slio stated, addressing Super
intendent Bnbhjtt. "On the main
land, whore they have all English
"f eukiug pupils, this might ho a good
thing, but in Houolulu, no sir. You
can never convince me that it is not
taking the minds of the children from
the more important parts of their
education, the acquiring of the pro
per groundings. The children may
l.kei', but it is a new gaira and a
new broom sweeps clean. But it is
too rauc h play and not enough work,"
"But it Un't play at all," said Su
perintendeut Babbitt. "I don't thi jk
that you have fully looked into tho
City Government plan. I am surn
that If you do yon will change your
opinion. It thiows no extra y?ork on
the principal, but a a matter of'fact
relieves him of two thirds of the work
of disciplining the school."
"But that's the work tho principal
is paid for. Why not let him do his
own work?" asked Mrs. Dowsott, who
continued to point out what she re
garded ns other weak spots in tho
school system, She slated that
parents hat! come to her very often
with complaints that their children
were not learning anything thorough
ly. The Superintendent wanted to
lint w the names of some of the pet
sons who were complaining tnd asked
Why they had not come to him and
mnde their khks In the proper way.
Mrs. Dowse' t explained that she was
not al( liberty to give names, as the
complaints came to her in a social
and not m an official vny. There was
an undercurrent of opinion however,
that the schools were not going in
the host nay.
"WelJ, I have no sympathy at all
with people who complain in that
way," saiil Babbitt. "Unless people
come out and make proper complaints
I do not feel like llntgnlng. o theth.
People needn't bo afraid that their
names are going to be blazoned forth
as knocker, but I wish they would
come hero with their lists of com
plain's and let us work nut a remedy.
That's what wo are here for."
Mrs. Dowsett entered further ob
jections to the way the school lime
is divided up into short periods.' She
had vlsiu d the school and saw the
teachers with timepieces on their
desks, giving live minutes to this"
subject and ten minutes to that. In
her opinion no child could master
anything in that length of-time and
alter promotions it wns usually found
that the children didn't know even
what was taught in the grade they'
had been promoted from.
The SuperinteudPiH pointed out
mildly that the- way in which the
.schools of Hawaii wero handling the
intricate matter of educating the
cosmopolitan population of these is
lands had Been referred to by cduca
tioni. lists abroad in most flattering
terms-. He asked Mrs. Dowse tt if
she had anything to suggest, as a
remedy for the things complained of.
"Make the teaching periods half
an hour," she said promptly, -' cs

' A SWEEPING REPORT.
The report of Inspector Baldwin
on the Royal and Kaiulani schools, in
whicli a reference wns made to tho
work of tho pupils in sweeping out
the schools, washing the bluckoards
and the woodwork, led J. J. Co; den
into inquiring if there wore no jani
tors at those schools. Mr. Babbitt
said thi-1 there were but that he
thought it a good thing that the
pupils worked as they did. The
sweeping and cleaning were not com
pulsory on anyone of the children
and the work itself influenced the
children and spreed throughout the
homes. The explanation was satis
factory to the Commissioner, who
had been told that the children were
being made to do tho sweeping,
which he was not in favor of.
MORE SALARY ASKED FOR.
Emit de Harne, tho -principal at
Honoipu, wrote asking the Board to
tako pity on him and raise Ins pay.
fie stated that lie found it impossible
to clothe and educate his ten children
on the salaiy of lifty dollars a month
he received. He had been twenty
five years a teacher, seventeen of
them in the government service. He
gavo his present age as sixty-one
years. , ,
Superintendent Babbitt reminded
the Board that Mr. de Harne's caso
had been up before at tho teachers'
committee meeting, at which the
question had been one of dropping
him altogether from the list of teach
ers. While he felt sorry for him ie
thought that the good of tho school
camo first. Mr. de flume had been
given the small school at Honoipu,
which has been kept open on purpose
for him, and lie could not recommend
any salary increase.
Benjamin Brlghtwell, of the Knupo
Maui, school also asked for more
money. He stated that he had boon
leachmg for forteen years and was
now getting less sulary than he got
six years ago. The Superintendent
was instructed to tell him that be
was already getting more than the
schedule allowed for his scoliol

An application for a position as

Florence Scott, coupled with a re
quest to be allowed to continue her
profession in Christi.in Science and
Healing work for two or three hours
en,gh day. In explanation to Mr Bab
Oitt she had explained that this work

to granting Miss. Scott's application.
He knew that the proper energy
could not be given to the school work

involved a tremendous mental strain.

"The Court is of tho opinion that

Bieknell in Ids testimony stated thai

Frear this morning mado a statement
as to some of the matters which ho
Inteeds to devote his attention to

of those which ln mentioned, bow

Eiis attitude on some of the more im

"I have thirty ono subjects down
in my note-book," saidnhe Governo-,
"which I may look into while I am in
Washington, It is probable, bow

I shall be ablo'to take no action, be

"Of course, there is the College of
Agriculture,, which we wish to bring
under the law so that it will be en
titled to a share in tho appropria
tion made by Congress for Agricul
tural Colleges. Congress docs, not
make an appropriation for agricul
tural colleges every session. At the
last session an appropriation was
voted whicli gave each college $5000
more each year until a maximum or
$50,000 Is readied. : he amount next
year will be $35,000, which is where
we will come in.
"Another matter Is the securing
of an appiopri.ihon for a hydrourn

think there will beany trouble in
securing t lus.
"It is possible also, that Congress
may be induced to made an appropri

Governor? Will you favor or oppose
any change in that?"
"Well, I t-ave not fully mado up my
mind as.to that," replied Governor
Frear. "There are certainly some
alterations which should be made in
it sooner or later, but I am not sure
whether it would be best to have any
changes made at present.
"Among the minor matters which
I shall prolvibly look into will be the
