UP AGAINST IT.
WITH regard to the tariff on sugar, it has been maintained by
many people that a cut of one cent per pound would not do
much harm, except to some very weak plantations that might
as well go of.t of existence. Those plantations that can only exist
through the "bonus" system, had better quit anyhow.
But, when a representative of the Sugar Factors returns from the
mainland with the news that the tariff is to be cut in half, the people
interested insugar and who is not have every right to be dismayed.
Such a cut will do an enormous amount of harm and everyone in the
Territory will feel the effects. Those people who voted for Democrats
at the general election wiil get what is coming to them and, no doubt,
there will be a squeal that will be heard in Washington.
Some people claim that if a number of sugar companies go up in the
air, the land will at once be put under cultivation by American farmers
and that the only difference will be as regards the variety of crop
raised. That sounds well but, where in Sam Hill are the homestead
ers, farmers or whatever they may be called, going to get the money
to irrigate, operate railroads, cultivate and handle their crops? And
even if they do all this, where is the market for locally grown stuff .
The imports from the mainland will continue and at a far cheaper rate
than now-a-days the Democrats have seen to that.
RUMORS of war in Europe are keeping people of all nationalities
on the qui vive. The many different races that live in harmony
in these islands are hoping that the big war will not eventuate.

The most interesting feature, to a
lot of people, was the rending of a
paper on Schoolroom Discipline by
Lida Crickard, Principal of Wailuku
Public School. It is impossible to
print in full the paper, but extracts
are herewith given.
"The object of this paper is not to
dictate just what shall be done to
secure the best discipline, but rather
to suggest a few plans, and possible
opportunities for better results in
A German philosopher says,
' Whatever you would have appear
in the life of the nation you must
first put into the schools," and
right or wrong, the schools are held
accountable for the majority of
weaknesses and short comings in
our national life.
In no place is a knowledge of
mental processes more valuable, and
absolutely essential to success, than
in the school room. To preserve
order should Iks the first effort of the
teacher, since utter demoralization
ensues if the disorder is not chucked.
How can any teacher hope to teach
send home the simplest truth when
pandemonium reigns in the room?
Someteachers do not mind the noise
in their room and others are so
constituted that the noisy pupils
In the best of schools, however,
there will be occasional infractions
of rules such as disobedience, . in
solence etc- Then must the teacher
rise to the situation and do that
which will cause the offender to
regret his misconduct.
I believe thoroughly in the appli
cation of the rod, the strap, the
paddle or spanker, or any other
modern invention, as a last re
In some casts only corporal
punishment is effective, since
some pupiis can be reached in no
other way. But whatever the in
strument, or methods the punish
ment must be applied in fairness,
and with due consideration of the
pupil's side of the question.
At all times treat the pupils as
you would if their parents or some
distinguished visitor were sitting in
the school room with you.
Teachers too frequently modulate
the voice and assume the mechani
cal smile in the presence of com
pany, and though the visitor may
be deceived, those children know
that too soon the mask will drop off,
to be resumed only when the next
Make your pupils feel that you
trust and respect them, w hen they
are worthy of it, that you have a
deep-felt interest in their school
work, their play and their home
life as well.
Get acquainted with your pupils,
their circumstances, their environ
ments, and know what to expect
from each individual.
We hear occasionally of that
dreadful Isiy," the worst ever in
whom the seemingly evil parts are
so mixed that we wonder what he'll
to next. Let us study him. His
appearance is against him, he
frowns, is sullen, unkempt etc.
What has made him so? If we could
follow him, we might sec him, after
school hastening home with a big,
rosy apple in his hand, which ' lie
gives to a little sick sister. What
does it matter that he stole the
apple at the corner grocery? He
loves that little sister the boy has
a heart. I know from experience
that bucIi as he can be reached by
proper methods. Aud s ch a boy
having the power and ability t
lead in evil ways, also has the facul
ty of being an example in the doing
of better things others following
as they have been uccustonicd to do.
If we find the secminirly incor
rigible who continually tries the
patience and nerves of u teacher, let
us deprive him of some pleasure!
some liberty, until a satisfactory
conduct record is made
The able teacher in her relation
to th ,.upil is his superior iu edu
cation, and judgement, and thus
is able to advise, direct, justly crit
icise, assist, aud had in every way
useful to her pupils. Don't foolishly

flatter, but show appreciation of the
sincere efforts of the pupils. Right
here I wanlto say to you, above
all things lie just to your pupils.
You are cognizant of the fact that
children, as well as older ones
feel and know when they are discri
minated against, and they can not
be deceived, when favors ore shown
in any direction. "Teacher's pet''
thty say at,once, and it does -not
materially advance that teacher in
public opinion, nor does it aid her
in the discipline of her school.
A FEW DONT'8
Don't break your word
to your pupils, If you promise any
thing, whether pleasure or punish
ment, be sure to fulfill that promise.
Don't scold, threaten, or
rag.' If is seldom necessary to
reprimand a pupil in the presence
of the school.
Don't get excited.
Don't see everything that
happens. The pupils may be hav
ing a little innocent pleasure in no
way harmful to discipline and
they object to bring watched like so
Don't ridicule. You only
arouse anger aud resentment in the
child who thinks things about
you, and would say them if he
Don't try to discipline
another teacher's pupils while visit
ing her room. Confine your efforts
to your own pupils.
Don't scream at your
pupils. Your voice may U- music
to your own ears, but have com
passion on the others who can not
h ave their duly, and run away.
Don't pound the desks
with ruler pointer etc. The first
whack may bring a momentary
pause but don't be deceived. It
only the lull that precedes the storm
and as you are only one against
the . ombined forces of many, they
will succeed in making more noise
than y o u can at your best.
Don't talk all the time
Some teachers, like "The Brook,"
simply go on forever. Their

everlasting chatter fills the recita
tion period, and so abssorbed are
they in the sound of their own voice
that they fail to see the theatrical
performance in the rear ef the room.
Is it any wonder that those pupils
are not up to standard grade when
So, I say, don't talk all the time.
Give the pupils a chance, and results
will be better.
