SATURDAY. ..... jtjne 22, 1912
Cleanup day, as a territorial holiday, was a new departure, but that
the average citizen appreciated the importance of a general cleaning up,
has been thoroughly demonstrated. Mr. Hugh Trevenan, the sanitary
inspector for this district, was obliged to make arrangements for the
work here on Maui at very short notice, but he succeeded in getting
the enthusiastic cooperation of almost everyone. The plantation man
agers without exception gave freely of their teams for hauling, and the
county fathers tur :d over the entire equipment of the county. At
Kahuluij the big auto trucks of the Kahului R. R., worked all day
Thursday and Friday. This get together enthusiasm, which is so pro
minently noticeable at all times here, is what makes Maui the leader
in all things. We pride ourselves here on our cleanliness, but it was
surprising what a large amount of rubbish has been carted away. The
work was done systematically and without the bickering and argument
which always attends anything of this sort in Honolulu.
There seems to be something doing at Chicago that does not come
over the wires. If the Taft faction controls the situation so thorough
ly as they would lead the country to believe, why don't they go ahead
and force him down the throats of the delegates? Men of the Barnes
type do not seek compromise unless they expect to gain something, and
that a compromise is the order of the day at Chicago seems certain.
Steam roller tactics may bt. all right for the extreme partisans of Taft
in the National committee, but they dare not go too far along this line
in open convention else their lukewarm supporters, and there are many
of them in the convention, would have the excuse they are looking for
to support Roosevelt, in the interests of fair play. It looks as though
the Taft leaders have finally come to their senses.
Great Caesar's ghost! What do you think of this? The possibility
is suggested that automobile bodies may soon be made luminous
at night, so that lighting will not be needed. It is stated that by mix
ing pulverized phosphorescent material, such as sulphide of calcium,
and phosphorated zinc, together with a trace of bismuth, and adding
some binder material, a water color paint may be secured, which if ap
plied on the car body will make it luminous in the dark. It niay be
varnished over if desired, and it is not affected by rain or weather. A
luminosity of this kind would surely be quite as effective and less offen
sive to the eyes than lninps. But think of the scare an apparition like
that would give a back-country wayfarer on a lonely road at night!
The following has bi-en rtcoived
from Charles W. Uall infur publi
Honolulu, T. II., June U, 1912.
EniTOK Maii News, Wailuku,
Diar Sir: Enclosed I am send
ing clipping from Advertiser of 13th
inst., which, in the interest of
ftruth, I trust you will puMish.
The article in question was sent in
as a IctU r to the editor,
CHARLES W. BALDWIN.
"The impression genernlly pre
vails that the course of study was
the cause of the dissension at the
recent supervising principals' meet
ing. In truth, however, fourteen
of the sixteen principals were al
ways agreed that the pres nt course
was the proper one. They U-lieved
there should be some changes in
texlhooks and modifications of the
course of study as it had been de
tailed, chiefly to meet the needs of
country schools of more than one
grade, but otherwise the course was
to he left intact. The final report
to the commissioners of education,
however, was signed by every prin
cipal making the supervising prin
cipals a unit on the course present
ed. scNioua oivision.
"There8 a serious division of
the principals, but that occurred
over the interpretation of u resolu
tion passd at the last meeting of
tin; commissioners, which apparent
ly intended to give the superintend
ent no voice in the framing of a
course of study. The first test came
on the matter of reorganization,
Maul. Hawaii, as second-class matter
which was lost on the narrow mar
gin of a tie vote, and the superin
tendent remained in the chair. The
second division came on the discon
tinuance, after three hours, of the
reading of the Cope!and-'elU 1)4
page course of study, which carried
by one vote. If the reading had
been continued there would have
been no time to prepare anything
for the fast approaching meeting of
the commissioners, when, undoubt
edly, the Copeland-W'ells course of
study would have been considered.
THE ISSUC THE 8AMC.
"The issue in both cases was the
same, i e., superintendent was to
have no voice in a matter that
affected his department so vitally as
the course of study.
"After the course was prepared,
it was handed to the commissioners
accompanied with the principals'
report, which was unanimously
signed as ljefore stated. The Super
vising principals were present by
n quest of the commissioners when
the report was made. Then began
a series of moves on the part of
some of the commissioners, which,
if persisted in, means retrogression
and disorganization for the public
school system of the Territory.
Plainly the commissioners expected
a minority report, or some dissent
ing voice from among the assembled
principals. At the regular meeting,
the next day, the result arrived at
by the principals was referred to as
being that of coercion ami fra d.
Finally the course was turned over
to a committee to arrange and
proof, when it was to be presented
to the commissioners at their July
NO MISTAKE IN INTENT.
''Up to this time a number of the
principals did not believe that the
commissioners truly intended to
give the superintendent no hand in
the course of study they believed
the wording of the resolution was a
slip. But now there wns no mis
taking the intent the superintend
ent was to be tied hand and foot
and, further than that, the super
vising principals were to le whipped
into line if they showed any tenden
cy to recognize the superintendent
as the head of their department.
"Immediately the organization of
principals, which should prove one
of the best things the school system
of the Territory has had, becomes n
menace as a means whereby the tra
ditional policy of the department,
which-has wisely followed the plan
of vesting its head with large pow
ers, may be broken down.
SYSTEM WIDELY PRAISED-
'I do not intend in this article to
go into any argument to defend our
present school system, or prove our
course of study, or explain the plan
of our Normal School. I should
say, however, that our school sys
tem has had the endorsement of
every credited school man who has
passed this way it has been pro
nounced as good and more than
good. Our course of study receives
its justification from the great Mc
Murry books and has the endorse
ment of such educators as United
Slates Commissioners of Education
Claxton, ex Commissioner Elmer E
Brown, Dr. John Dewey, Dr. Dress
ier, McMurry and others. Of
course the aliove endorsement ap
plies to our Normal School as well.
"But if the public does not be
lieve, and that is what some of the
commissioners would have us think,
then they should inform themselves
as to what is going on in the various
educational systems of today. The
McMurry books are very readable
and may be found in any library.
WOULD BE HARD BLOW
"I don't believe our commission
ers realize the full significance of
what is taking place. The commis
sioners who have led in ' the attack
on the course of study are men
whose past actions thoroughly war
rant the assertions that they are
public spirited, and that their pres
ent positions justify them as such.
But, should these men cause the
striking from our course of some of
the things that have been an essen
tial part of it, it will lie many a day
before we can recover from the blow,
and some of our children will be
denied their birthright. It will not
do nowadays to say that what was
good enough for me is good enough
for my child. The little red school
house was a good thing in its day,
but the world has moved far apace
"The whole situation is so novel,
ami yet withal so preposterous and
impossible- that one hardly knows
where he is at. However, situations
siniiiar to this are likely to occur in
any community situated as we are
far away from the centers of learn
ing out hero in the middle of the
Pacific Ocean. It is bHt natural
that an adventurer may bring about
a wrangle and lead the public to be
lieve that our schools are out of
date, etc., for the simple reason
that the sources of ' information are
not easily reached.
ABREAST OF TIMES
"If the opinion of expert educa
tors and book men is worth any
thing, our schools are thoroughly
abreast of the times, so much so that
our ideas have been made use of by
the leading book companies in get
ting out their latest sets of readers
and books on the subject of language
teaching. That our schools are up-to-date
is due chiefly to the untiring
efforts and foresight, coupled with
an indomitable energy, of the prin
pal of our Normal School, Professor
"The success or failure of the
schools depends on the course of
study. Therefore leading educators
throughout the United States are
urging the safeguarding of the course
by placing it in the hands of the
superintendent of public instruc
tion. The tendency to adopt such
a system is so strong today, that we
may almost refer to it as the uni
"I am sorry to sny t hat the course
presented to the commissioners by
the supervising principals is not so
flicient as thee former course. The
principals worked to save the old
course, modifying here and there to
meet what they felt would be the
demands of the commissioners.
The committee to whom it was
finally given has further modified,
and the end is not yet."
A Story of Jos Manley.
Chief Justice Fuller of the United
States supreme court was on a visit to
Maine some years ago and while there
was entertained by Joe Manley. Mr.
Manley was held In great reverence by
his fellow citizens all over Maine and
especially In Augusta, his home. He
took Mr. Fuller for a drive nbeut the
place, but was forced by a pressing
business engagement to leave his guest
before the drive was finished. When
Mr. Manley bad disappeared the driver
turned to the Judge, whom he did not
know, and, drawing out a cigar, said:
"I suppose you don't mind If I smoke.
When we are driving Mr. Manley we
never light up, because he's rather a
distinguished citizen." Fuller repress
ed a laugh and told the driver to go
ahead, which he did. Later the chief
Justice retailed the Joke to Mr. Manley,
who at the first opportunity told the
driver a few things, winding up, "You
miserable three ply Idiot, that was the
chief Justice of the United States."

a moment and then discarded three.
'Now.' she said, Tm going to bet a

woman. 'I only have two kings, but I
suppose I must call.'

"Once upon a time," says Opie Bead,
"I was In a sanitarium where It was
customary to starve people almost to
death In order to make them live. I
endured that treatment three days and
then sought a restaurant downtown.
A waiter came to me, and I said:
