Editor Evening Bulletin: In
reply to your request for an expro
sion concerning Hon. S. M. Da
mon's interview in your paper of
the 4th instant, 1 would say that,
in the main, he is cortcct.
The idea of interesting children
in agreculture is excellent, but the
attempt to make thoin laborers in
stead of training them to the inde
pendent citizens, earning their
livelihood out of their own toil and
out of the soil they cultivate is a
boniinablc. Tho natural tendencies of child
ren to drift into varied vocations
are so evident that to inculcate in
to the young minds the principle
whfch is now being advocated to
bo pressed into the public school
system of-Hawaii, will not produce
tho result desired, and the effects
in that direction would be blasted.
What parent is willing to have his
child educated to be a cane-stripper
or irrigator or any other kind
of field work, for which the highest
wage is G5 cents to $1 per day,
working from 12 to 14 hours per
day, and nothing for any overtime?
And whose children are to be
trained to bo "plantation field la
borers," and whose to be trained
for the "whitoshirt professions"?
It is very evident in Hawaii to
day that it is the purpose of those
who have become wealthy out of
the kanakas' land to force them
out of all chances of becoming in
dependent citizens and drive them
to the fields In Honolulu today,
I see in most ofliccs strange faces
most of them "Johnny-come-lats-ly"
taking the palee of tho young
people of Hawaii.
The best men the world has pro
duced tho most learned and the
uest ucmonstrators oi man's inge.
nuity in all departments, whether
political, commercial, financial
scientific, mechanical, or agrecult
ural, were men who weri born of
parents of poor circumstances
sons of good, honeis toilers.
Congress, when it passed the
Morill Act did not intend to train
tho rising American youths those
ofono class to ''white-shirt pro
fessors and those of another to be
laborers on the cotton, suear, and
tobacco farms of the South. No
Decidedly NO. It was the inten
of Congress to give tho children of
thoso who could not afford it, every
possible opportunity of learning
how to produce from tho soil and
the means by wliich they could be
come INDEPENDENT CITIZENS
of the United States; and, to those
who show evory mark of fitness for
other vocations, evory encourage
meni ana assistance is given to
aquirc full knowledge in such arts
to which they apply themselves
Now, why should tho children of
the poor of Hawaii be forced to the
fields as Coolies? That is exactly
what is meant by Superintendent
Babbitt's sympathy in the move
ment to keep the children of tho
public: schools interested in agri
culture. I think and stondv too.

to secure teachers, as in many
places in the outer districts on
Oaliu, Kauai, Maui, and Hawaii.

of the necessary instruction in tho

pupils into the College of Hawaii
Tho College of Hawaii is govern
ed by a board of men of high i
doals men who are above re
proach, in that they are not and
do not believe in partiality, be
cause of their own high education
which they have obtained in insti
tutions which aro far above the
(Oiicntal) public school system of
Hawaii. The President of the Col
lege, whom I have not as yet had
the pleasue of meeting but hope to
in a few days when I have com
pleted my investigation in the
Territorial departments, is a man
of very high standing in College
work, and Hawaii is very fortunate
to have his services. The in
structors are all highly roooiu
meiiged. All ot tho above are de
termined to make the youths com
ing under their tutorship useful
citizens of our Hawaii Aloha. The
Hon. S. M'. Damon is one of the
few descendants of the early mis
sionaries whom we Hawaiians loVe,
because be is a true friend of the
iiawanans, ami no loves us as
though ho .were a native Havaiian
himself. From reading his inter
iew, I see, it is his earnest desire
to have more sons and daughters
of Hawaii take more interest in
their holdings to build up some in
dustry whereby they would be
come independent and happy citi
zens. And it is his idea, as 1
judge, that thoso who fail in (heir
training, and who cannot be made
to appreciate the value of indepen
dent oxistance, should bo trained
to be skillful in the handling or
performance of sample works a
round factories, etc.; and thoso who
are fools.enough to remain fools,
send them to tho fields to work
with tho Oriental Coolies. If that
is true, then I heartily aureo with
Mr. Damon has given mo a very
good suggestion by his inter
view, which I will see carried out
in tho coming session of the Legis
lature. It is something which has
done a great deal of good to tfie
Western farmers a few year auo
on tho mainland. As you may re
momber, when tho farms -on the
mainland were going to ruin owing
to the poor crops produced, tho
Government at Washington be
came interested, and sent out ex
perts with carloads of materials
and seeds for giving the farmers
personal instructions as to what to
uo in oroor to save ana linnrovc
their crops, stock, etc. Wo all
know the result of that assistance
Tho same could bo done hero in a
simpler way. Tho Legislature pro
vide for the expenditure, and tho
College of Hawaii, the Federal Ex
periment Station, tho Territoria
miroau- ot Agriculture send out
exports in the several subjects
which interest the farmers in tho
several localities of our Islands,
and spend sullicient time at each
place giving practical demonstra
tions and instructions free. Ffold
demonstration does more effective
work than room talk.
In conversation with Mr. A, F,
J udd a few days ago he called my
ittention to a gentleman who pass
ed by, who is an export on hog
raising. Such a man should bo
sent at Government expense to
Kula and other places on Maui
and other Islands where hog-raising
is carried on.
I will take this matter up with
President Gilmoro when I call on
him early next week.
