THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, MAY 17, 1913.
Mai i XkV9.
Owing to tlic fnct tlmt the whole
(or at least two-thirds of the) Edu
cational Hold-over Committee is at
present residing on your island, I
thought it best to ask you for
a little space in your esteemed
I am sure it was only after deep
thought and serious reflection that
His Excellency V. F. Frear ap
pointed the several members of this
commission. The appointment of
Senator Huker is certainly unique,
felicitcous and praiseworthy. The
people want a square deal, His Ex
cellency realizes it and the prospects
could not be better.
Let me state from the very start,
that I am one of the pedagogues
that has a grievance of twelve years
standing discharged at Kona in
A. D. 1901, "without a hearing."
Senator Baker was teacher in
Kona at that identical time. lie
km.ws my case perfectly well. lie
was also, one of the Grand Jurors
sitting at Kailua in A. D. 11)02,
when the people of Kona brought
my case to the notice of that body.
I think Senator Mutzger, before
leaving for Ililo, after the Legisla
ture prorogued, turned over to Sena
tor Penhallow, a copy of the verdict
of the said Grand Jury together
with the names of each one of
them. Senator Baker's name ap
pears thereon also. lie and hie
colleagues, without hesitation,
strongly recommended the then ex
isting Board to reinstate me. The
Board took no notice of it, nor of
the numerous petitions, which Kona
parents of pupils sent to the Board,
and to the Board's representative
Miss Ella Paris of Kona. (See
Bulletin Nov. and Dec. 1901-Jan.
1902.) Senator Baker knows t hat the
parents and I wrote several memo
rials to the Board and Miss Paris
demanding a permit to open up a
private school (this was after my
discharge.) Not only was no no
tice taken of our joint demand, but
Miss Paris went so far as to send
the truant officer to break up my
private school, which I had started
only after patient waiting for an an
swer that never came. And why
should I have waited? I was own
er of a 1st Class Certificate and
furthermore of a Life Certificate.
Be it said to the credit of Senator
Baker, that, although he was at
that particular period, onj very

be will, (and I have no doubt but
he will) unfold many an interesting
tale. The other two honorable
members of the commission will have
to "find out" the 101 facts whicl
Senator Baker knows of Kona.
He fell out" with the Board
and Miss Paris owing to the Board 'b
trying to "do him up" in the
Alae Land Scrap." I pitied him at
the time. The Board had got the
best of me, and it was about to get
the best of him (companion in
misery.) The Board sent Pugilist
Jack Weedey" to oust him from
said land. David Baker (now
senator) fumed and raged, begged
and implored, and finally (and in
this he was more successful than I)
he thought he'd run for the Legis
lature. He won out and into the
Senate he brought his "Alae Land
trouble.' The government bad to
