The Commissioners Talk Out Loud, and
nil it . T
V Kauie uie i ry nones.
HONOLULU, Mny 28. Commis
sioner Aiken came to tlio front yes
terday and in a manner that left no
doubt, told those who were present
at the session of tin- commissioners
and principals, that it was lie who
suggested to Mr. Gopeland the ad
visability of a change in the school
curriculum. Incidentally Mr. Aiken
gave an afternoon newspaper a rap
for bandying his name in connection
with the suggested change and the
actual attempt .to make it. If there
was any odium attached to the ac
tion of Mr. Copeland, Mr. Aiken
certainly wiped it out.
It is gathered from remarks made
by at least two of the commissioners
that the Bession of the principals
was called to givo them an oppor
tunity to talk over in a quiet man
ner any change in the -study course
which might be suggested. That
Pope, or Mrs. Wilcox or Mr. Wood
Bhould be present at and of the
meetings of principals was not for a
moment expected so there was justi
fication in Mr. Copeland's opinion
that they were the genuine Buttin-
skys' of Buttville. Even the most
anti-principal commissioner cannot
reason out why Wood should have
been present when he is neither
supervising principal nor. commis
sioner. That all should be peaceful
and harmonious is the wish of the
commissioners. That it will not be
is the groundwork of a doubt in
the minds of some of the principals,
and I would say that Copeland,
who seems a very earnest man in
his profession, will be one who will
not turn his other cheek for a swat
because ho got ono on the off side.
Mrs. Wilcox seems to be tlie mam
opponent of a free session, for the
principals and she wanted Pope
present because ho is the head and
should be the guiding star in the
deliberations of any body connected
with the board. In this she was
opposed by both Moir and Aiken
who seemed in favor of freedom of
action with a report to bo submitted
to the commissioners at which time
the superintendent could be present
for his side. At the final session
Copeland seems to have strengthened
himBelf personally as well as in his
position on this particular question
He denies strongly any desire to get
into Pope's Bhoes and the public,
with one or two exceptions, are will
ing to believe him.
It looks as though there will be a
material change in the study course
and all children will havo an equal
show. There is a desire on the part
of Borne parents for a course that
will leave out cutting paper flowers

because every mother hopes for bet
ter things for her boy.
One cannot tell just what hap
pened in the board meetings by the
newspaper accounts published in
the Honolulu papers for they seem
to be inspired by the enemies of the
Maui bunch. I would say in an
off-hand way that Copeland and
Wells are' on the right side. Two
. suffrageites in the board, of opposite
temprament, by-the-way, held out
against them but the principals have
won enough to encourage them
believe that there is more to come
and it will come their way. Mrs
Wilcox seems to be ono of tho
strong "supporteis of her opinion
that Pope should bo in tho chair at
meetings of both factions but I can
find no one outside tho board agree
ing with her.
A Far Reachinir Case Decided
Some weeks ago II. B. Weller.
while on his way to church at Pain,
un over a Japanese who had
fallen off his bicycle into tho road ,
while Mr. Weller in his machine
was close behind waiting to get past.
At the time of tho accident Mr.
Weller stopped and took the injured
man to tho hospital, and did every
thing he could for him. Recently,
lowover, the Japanese forgot all
this and brought suit against Mr.
Weller for $300 damages.
Tho hospital physician Dr. Saw
yer testified that in his opinion the
man was fit to go to work after 15
days, but Dr. Mori, thought other
wise. The latter doctor testified
that he had come to the conclusion
that the plaintiff had been hit by
an automobile, from a superficial
examination of his chest, and that
tho man was not yet in fit physical
condition to work. The evidence
showed conclusively that Mr. Wel
ler did everything in hia power to
avoid the accident, and to help tho
man after he had been run over.
The evidence of the Japanese wit-
nesses was very uncertain .The court,
while stating that he -believed the
evidence of the defendant, found
for the plantiff in the sum of 8118.
Tho case has been, appealed, and we
understand will bo fought out to a

Republicanism Will Survive This Fight
and Win Out.
The following editorial from tho
Honolulu Bulletin is a good answer
some of the nikcrs who cry out
iat tho grand old party will be
irreparably split if Roosevelt wins
tho nomination :
The intense interest this has for
lawaii at this time lies in the po3
ibility, almost the probability, of
tho election now of a Democratic
resident, made possible through
10 seemingly irreparable split in
le Republican party. Advertiser.
The fyst answer to this is "Rats."
The presumption of President
Tuft's defeat for the nomination.
Lon which the foregoing paragraph
was written, and the assumption
that tho Republican party is irre
trievably split, are expressions of
timidity and a lack of knowledgo of
what Republicanism is and means
to tho American peoplo.
Our contemporary evidently does
not realize that President Taft's
rcsponso to tho Ohio result start
ing immediately for Now Jersey is
merely carrying out tho old Amer
ican ideal voiced by John Paul
Jones, who, when asked if ho had
surrendered, replied, "I have just
begun to fight.'
True, the Taft campaign has not
gone according to schedule but there
is a long road ahead before his op
ponent is to be conceded the victory
in tho nominating convention.
There's no doubt that Roosevelt is
a wonder, but thero aro lots of Re
publicans in that class and it is
still a first class scrap.
And as to tho fato of tho Republi
can party, "tho seemingly irrepara
ble split. ' Nover before has the
country seen an ex-President so
bitterly on tho trail of a President,
but when it conies to bitter quarrels
we must remember that this is by
no means the first. Even so great
a leader as Abraham Lincoln was
doubtful of renominatiou, and him
self penned a noto expressing liia
belief that he would not bo reelected.
Many Americans remember what a
devouring of previous utterances
there was when William McKinley
was nominated on a cold platform:
also tho apparent certainty of vic
tory for Bryan had the election
taken place a few weeks after his

Tho real issue today is tho Indivi

Tho difference in tho Republican
party is merely whether Taft is as
