Dr. Sinclair of the faculty of the
Massachusetts Institute of Techno
logy made a very interesting and
instructive address. - Briefly he
stated that ho had come to look on
and bear about the work of the
teachers of Maui. He had been a
teacher for our fifty years, from the
time when it was the practice for
teachers to hoard around with dif
ferent families in the rural school
districts. He commended Mrs.
tVustin's paper on school discipline
and contrasted it with the times
when muscle was used to maintain
authority to show the progress made
in school discipline. He was opti
mistic and maintained the present
to bo hotter than the much vaunted
good old days usually not what it's
cracked up to be of his own boy
hood. He said the future of the is
land of Maui was in tho .hands of
tho teachers, and that no other in
fluence for the good of the coming
generation can compare with that
exorcised by this band of clean
minded men and noble women, our
Maui teachers 1 Have right ideals,
and live up to them and tho effect
of it will havo a vast improvement
on the rising generation. Ho com
mended tho practice of carrying on

In tho Central West industrial
education is being largely under
taken. The training of young men
for the workshops and farm work
was going on and the girls are be
ing trained to do the work which
usually 'fall to women, from the
care of homes to the cooking of food
and selection thereof.
Much of the domestic troubles of
tho people were due to pure ignor
anco. In millions of homes food is
not properly selected or prepared
and much misery come from it,
there was also a sentiment against
the teaching of certain things whicl
leave a girl ignorant of her duties
as a mother when that interesting
event falls to her lot, which is large
ly the ease where girls go to work
Mr. Vincent asked alwut tho At
kinson fund and what had become
of it. Mr. Copcland replied that
owing to the death of Mr. Atkinson
the fund was diverted from the
original purpose, and that tho Com
mittee still had a balance of 825.00
Mr. Copeland briefly stated, what
the committee on a change in tho
school system had done and that

Miss Nellie Crook then took -the
floor jind led a spirited fight for a
recommendation for Maui represen
tation on the Territorial board of
education. She cited a case of an
assistant teacher with a salary of
830 a month, who had fallen sick
and got a substitute willing to take
her place while ill at one-dollar a
day, and that the board of educa
tion, had deducted and given the
substitute two-dollars a day "out o
tho sick teacher's pay. When she
had called at tho Honolulu ofliee to
see about it, the officials pleaded
ignorance, and insisted according to
the precedents of tho hoard substi
tutes must be paid two dollars a
day It is easy enough to sec at
this rate the sick teacher would lose
his or her whole monthly salary
and owe tho substitute SI 2 besides
at the end of one month.
Mr. Copeland judiciously avoided
the sick teacher storm cloud and
reminded the Association of the
Committee' recommendation and
W. H. Babbit's suggestion to make
no change, and some, one made a
motion to accept or adopt the com
Mr. W. I. Wells briefly gave tho
lino of action proposed by tho com
mittee but since tho political con
vention had wisely left the matter
alone, tho committee had adopted
the course recommended.
Mr. W. W. Taylor strongly op
posed letting tho schools go under
the County and cited a California
instance as a bad example of it.
Miss Crook insisted on asking for
a main representation on tho educa
tion board , and appealed to teachers
to stand together and hojp one an
other. She proceeded promptly to
demonstrate to Mr. Taylor the
fallacy of the inference ho had tried
to draw from tho California ex.-
amplo. Miss N. Crook's remarks
were applauded quite enthusiastical
ly twice, but on tho vote being takon
her proposition was snowed under,
three to ono, and tho recommenda
tions of tho committee as suggested
by Mr. W. H. Babbit prevailed.
