PROTECT HBN PHEASANTS.
I see by the Maui News .that the
County Supervisors have before
them, an ordinance making it
illegal to shoot Hen Pheasants;
and I trust most sincerely that the
measure will become law.
My reason for wishing to see this
go through is, that it is my belief
from what I have seen, and heard
from others interested in this bird;
that Pheasants on this Island dont
Baseball Team, Champions of Maui,
breed true to seasons, or in other
words, that they breed either twico
a year, or all the year round, more
especially so, on or near the sea
coast. On the 26th of October last,
saw a young pheasant that I am
sure was not more than five or six
weeks old; as the shooting season
commences on the 15th of Septem
ber he w,as hatched about that date,
or subsequent thereto. On the 20th
of Dec. last, Kuabar Inbaro a luna
on tho Hamakuapoko section of the
Maui Agriculture Co. reported see
ing a Hen Pheasant with six young
ones probably not moro than two,
or threo weoks old.
I think that with this before us,
all good sportsmen, and in fact any
body with any humanity in them
at all, will consent to loavo Hens
If my sunniso is correct, and if
the Hens arc allowed to rear, their
young in peace, it will ho but a
very short tune before this Island
is plentifully stocked with thin
most valuable game bird.

12 URAL SCHOOL CBNTKALIZA
TIOIN. Honolulu, January 3.- One im
portant matter initiated at the
Board of Education meeting yes
terday afternoon came up under
the head of "centralization" with
reference both to Ainakea and Pe
peekco schoolhouse building pro
positions. These arc the first
move taken to carry into effect an
idea in Superintendent Babbit's
last annual report to the Governor.
It is to substitute a large central
school, where the conditions are
suitable, for two or more smaller
schools. Greater convenience to a
greater number of pupils, on the
one hand, and greatly improved
grading of the schools, on the
other, are the benefits expected.
For the rest of the business pro
gram, with one or two exceptions,
the board discussed a number of
assignments of teachers. The ex
isting situation at Lahaina was
left undisturbed for the present,
with a warning given of heads to
be dropped if the peace be not
kept. Personalities figured pro
minently in reference to several
schools, and the riot act was read
