Education. the world's axis has its seasonable work so
each decade brings up for solution its own problems. Our country
has taken up one after another such political questions as self
government, freedom of speech, the freeing of a race of slaves,
and the curbing of dominating capital. In education the tirst for
ward movement was to secure private schools, then came the
movement for free primary schools. The establishment of acade
mies and colleges followed, to be in turn succeeded by a movement
to establish free city high schools and n trmal schools; also Stale
colleges and universities partly or 'quite free of tuition charges.
Each of these types of schools has been devised tf form a wheel
in the educational machinery which we. as a pcoplo, are gradually
The educational philosophy of the older church-governed schools
which long ruled our educational policy has been powerfully modi,
fied by research in the sciences and by development in the indus
tries, arts, and professions. The curriculum once confined to
classical learning has broadened out 'so as to cover the practical as
well as the theoretical and' the aesthetic. Some of our very best
philosophy of education is now found in the minds of those teachers
who are successfully reducing to pedagogic form and weaving in
to our educational scheme the essentials of education )n the in
dustries and home making. When the older philosophy met the
nrohlpm a of fpe.hnir.al education it said: "Educate the man tirst
and the specialist afterwards." Its plan was to give the man a
general college course and give him his technical work in a grad
uate course. That plan limited technical education to college men.
It was aristocracy of education for the few in the professions. If
that philosophy had been persisted in.it would have been the most
un-American of foibes. The persistency with which this mistaken
policy was pursued was due almost wholly to the fact that school
teachers cling most tenaciously to the educational philosophy of
the schools were they were taught. Among the most intolerant
things done in American life stands out the persistency with which
our educators go into a new community and disregard the local in
terests important and dear to the parents and pupils, placing the
school emphasis too nearly all on the remote, as on the possibilities
of becoming President, or on the language of a people who knew
far less than we, failing to give tho youth information about the
things with which he or she must deal. But far worse, this course
tends actually to rob the pupil of his or her inspiration for the
practical affairs of the home, the farm, the shop, or other work in
which at least 90 per cent must engage.
The broader plans coming into our schools have been largely
thrust upon the school men by men of affairs, as in our cities aud
'by legislators. The success of combining industrial, technical, and
scientific studies with the general studies, thus brought about,
often under suggestions from school men. shows that the philoso
phy of many of the older educators was wrong. The Congress of
the. United States, by passing the land-grant act of 1802 establish
ing State colleges of agriculture and the mechanic arts, did more
than all other agencies to broaden the philosophy adhered to by
the older schools. At first the mechanic arts were brought to a
pedagogic basis; then agriculture slowly but surely was brought
to teachable form; and last, home economics were successfully
brought into the domain of the school. There are now no admiriis
trators of these colleges who are so conservative as not to be
thoroughly in sympathy with collegiate education in engineering;
most of them have risen to a belief that agriculture has been re
duced to teachable form; but some still have little faith in tho pos
sibility of teaching domestic subjects. Legislative bodies, ever
more ready than teachers to turn our schools into practical lines,
have their minds open to larger plans for public education. Tno.se
men who see the broader economic and social movements of our
country and our States have come to believe profoundly in scienti
fic, technical, and industrial education and research in relation to
our productive industries, in relation to home making, and in re
lation to our social and civic life. As tbe management of a great
railway system is willing to make expensive surveys preparatory
to the proper construction at not too great cost of proposed im
provements in order that larger net profits may accrue to tho road,
so our legislators are ready to have the people's money "collected
and expended in making the people more efficient in creating and

With the present activity of the

anything doing in koa lumbering
but negotiations are kept up for
marketing the koa wood bark. It

that the oldtime tanners in these

Honolulu, August M. The; Cen
tral Committee of the Democrat :c
party will hold a meeting this even
ing at which will decide on the da' 0
for the ratification meeting at
which the nomination of Bryan
will be rati lied as well as the act
ions of the local Democratic dele
gates tr the Denver convention.
It is probable that the meeting
will be set for next Thursday, this
date being chosen on account of
tin; fact that Link MiCandless aud
Ed. Ingham are planning to take
a trip to Molokai and Maui, start
ing next Friday.
The Democrats have been appris
ed of the fact that Senator Sam Ka
huna has nlready started on a tour
around Maui for the purpose of
stirring up interest in the Republi
can ranks and the .rip of Link and
Ingham appears to be something of
a counter move.
Secretary John Emmcluthof the
Central Commiitef stated this
morning that the main' purpose of
the travelers would be to organize
some precinct clubs in localities
where the Democratic party had
heretofore lacked organization. On
Molokai time were three Denioer;'
tie precinct clubs, but an udditioi -al
fine was needed, while in Maui
tluuve were five more precinct clubs
needed, while there were three clubs
which' were at present only' indif
ferently organized. Ingham and
McCandless wou d organize new
precinct clubs wherever such were
needed, and they would aiso con
duet a caimiaHii of education, ex
plaining the new rules of the party,
hi order that everything might run
along smoothly when I he time came
for the primary elections.

there by Prof, and Mrs. Ingalls, Mrs.
