Schools and the Teachers.
IF is unfortunate when a public servant lays himself open to merited
criticism, and it is doubly unfortunate when that servant is con
nected with our educational system.
The present Superintendent of Education is no doubt an estimable
man in his line, but that he lacks initiative and executive ability has
been demonstrated time and again since he had been in office.
If Mr. Pope thinks he can put aside criticism by a wave of the hand,
or a general statement that his critics are incompetent, he errs, and
shows still more clearly his false position.
There are many things in the educational department which have al
ways looked strange to us, but we have withheld comment, and passed
them on the theory that perfection in any line of endeavor is hard to
We have always opposed the present method of4appointing supervis
ing principals, and do not believe they have been appointed solely with
the object in view of recognising ability. We have hereon Mam four
supervising principals, two of whom do not;hold certificates qualifying
them to their positions, according to the rules laid down by the Board
of Education. We know nothing of the qualifications of these gentle
men other than that they have not the grade of certificate called for by
the board. We quote the rule of the board :
"Supervising principals shall be appointed by the department at its
discretion, but each appointee must be the holder of a Grammar Grade
Certificate or its equivalent."
(St. Louis Globe-Democrat.)
LET us call the roll of the states which give the ballot to women
oil the same conditions as to men: Wyoming, Colorado, Uta
Idaho, Washington, California. This is the order in which these
states made the new depnrture. Wyoming had equal suffrage from the
beginning of its territorial days, back in 1869. Utah, too, had it for a
while during the Mormon regime in the territorial era, but in the con
flict with polygamy Congress took the ballot away from the women.
From 1896 until 1910 the four states first mentioned were the only ones
in which women had the same privileges as men at the ballot box. In
the latter year Washington joined this list. And now California writes
its name on the equal suffrage roll.
The suffragists have just made the largest single contest in all
their career. California is much more than twice as populous as the
biggest of the other states which gives the ballot to women. And the
State next on the roll, Washington, was won less than a year
ago. The suffragists have now more than an eighth of all the states.
Most of these states are small in number of inhabitants. Combined,
however, they comprise nearly one-seventeenth of the population of the
country.' In 1910 woman suffrage was voted upon in Oregon, South
ni.M, nunlwinm. New Mexico. Arizona and Washington, but it was
rejected in all those communities except Washington. Another attempt
to gain this privilege will be voted upon oy an uiose cumnminura m
the next election.
In about two-thirds of the states, most of them being in the West,
women are permitted to vote on school matters. The movement for
enfranchisement for them is proceeding vigorously in several European
countries. Women can vote for all officials in Great Britain except for
Members of Parliament. They have a limited suffrage in France, aS
well as in many of the provinces of the Dominion of Canada. Norway
allows them a vote for Parliamentary members. In the Isle of Man,
Australia, New Zealand, Iceland and Finland they have full suffrage,
as in the six American states here mentioned. The agitation for equal
suffrage for women began in the United States just sixty years ago, but
the slavery issue, the Civil War and reconstruction pushed it into the
background for many years. In the United States, as well as abroad,
however, it has won some notable triumphs in recent times.
The March of the "P. A. C."
(Written by Alan M. Rattray.)
What a crowd gathered round 'twas a welcome renowned,
There was all Kahului to see,
If old Maui'a boys were to be the big noise,
When they tackled the famed P. A. C:
And Geel what a gait the laddies were great,
They were there with the tricks to a 'T,"
And so we got the punch first win of the bunch
Bad luck for the P. A. C.
But alas 1 at Wailuku a different tale,
For the game lads from over the sea,
Soon showed they were keen and a crack-a-jack team,
Who were out for the honors to be,
They got them you bet and some more even yet,
While their backers went crazy with glee,
We were glad that they won every son-of-a-gun,
For you're sports every one, P. A. CI
And then at Lahaiua they're still on the job,
It turned out a regular spree,
All the local fans say their team couldn't stay,
With the rush of the P. A. C;
They played with a heart with a will from the start,
Great Snakes! It was dandy to see,
And hundreds exclaim at the close of the game,
"Gee Whiz! You're the "good" P. A. C!
