Molokai Teacher at Last Steps
Out of Office Some
IVnca once more reigns on Molo
kai and the seliool war at Kamalo
is nt an end, according to the latest
reports of Inspector George S. Ray
tnond who returned to Honolulu
Sunday morning from Lahaina,
Maui, after having paid Molokai an
After arrival at l'ukoo, Molokai,
the school inspector proceeded to
, Kamalo where a government school
is situated and there, after quite an
interview with Mrs. Dudoit, the
hitter agreed to surrender the fort
and turn the Kamalo school over to
11. L. Ogilvie, the new teacher who
was recently appointed to succeed
Mrs. Dudoit. In refusing to sur
render the school some days ago
the teacher is said to have acted
upon the advice of legal counsel.
Inspector Raymond hurried over to
Molokai, armed witli a letter from
Attorney General Thayer, and the
trouble was settled as stated above.
Mrs. Dudoit, husband and children
came to Honolulu by the samo
steamer with Inspector Raymond
who says the whole family will now
settle here. Mrs. Dudoit main
tained she was being removed ille
gally. Inspector Raymond visited several
other schools on Molokai and most
of those on West Maui. The time
was too short for him to cover the
East Maui schools. On Molokai
and on West Maui the inspector
found the enrollment of pupils, at
the opening of the new school year
a week ago yesterday, far in excess
of that for the year previous. Each
of these schools showed an increase
and in some cases a very large in
crease. "I found that the new Lahaina
school building is about the best on
Maui," said Inspector Raymond
yesterday. ''It is roomy and has
line ventilation and light- Although
the building is finished the school is
not ready for occupancy for the
'4 reason that it lacks the requisite
furnishings. The old furniture will
be used until the new is provided.
The Lahaina school closed with aii
enrollment of 100 at the close of
the last school year and I expect
' the new school will open with still
a larger attendance. I also visited
the Lahainaluna school which has
now an enrollment of 100 pupils,
the largest number in many years.
This is the result of the campaign
recently made on the islands espe
cially among the Hawaiian popu
lation. The new dining room has
been completed and it is quite an
"I found the new schools at Puu
l'alika and Honokohau, in West
Maui, already crowded. These are
sparsely populated districts, but the
crop of children seems to me to be
always on the increase.

felt rather out of it all at first.
However, us the days woroon, Maui
came out of her shell and showed
i thnt our men have the right spirit.
Yolls were hastily composed and,
gradually, things came Maui's way.
At any rate Maui was represented,
and that was the principal thing.
Much was learned; the main object
1 of the expedition was gained and
that was the securing of the con
vention of 1914 for Maui.
There were moments of sport and
but there also hours and hours of
convention work. Many fine papers
on subjects of vital interest to the
inlands were read, and speeches that
wer; the most eloquent evor heard
inYlIonolulu were delivered. Thero
j jwore iimos wnen every delegate
sworo to lumselt that no would not
havo missed the experience for all
thero is in the world. There was
an air of working (or the good of
others besides ones self, and thero is
no doubt that every delcgato who
left Honolulu on Wednesday hist,
determined to preach the gospel of
"get together" for all the balance
of his life.
The members of the board of
supervisors from the different isl
ands must have learned a lot.
They heard the opinions of bril
liant men who knew what they
were talking about, and they must
havo gained much knowledge.
The convention took up nearly
all the time of the delegates out the
luncheons by the Commercial Club
and the Ad. Club were very pleas
ant intermissions. The banquet at
the Moana Hotel was a magnificent
affair and was a fitting climax to
the whole doings.
Now for a story of the trip. The
Mauna Kea arrived off Diamond
Head bright and early on Saturday
morning. No sooner ad she passed
Waikiki then a strange looking craft
appeared in sight. The passengers
on the Mauna Kea began to feel
uneasy, as stories of tho terrible
doings of the South Sea pirates who
were reported to bo in the vicinity,
had been wirelessed to Lahaina.
However, everybody hoped for the
best, and money was hastily hidden
in secret places in case the ap
proaching ship was the pirate one.
Within twenty minutes of first
sighting the craft the fact that she
was truly the pirate ship became
apparent. Then the Ililo and Maui
contingent got worried. They feared
for the worst and showed it in their
The pirate ship ranged up along
id e and the most blood-thirsty
ouneii ot scoundrels it Had ever
been the lot any to tho Hawaii or
Maui people to sec, began firing
their muskets, pistols and an old
cannon at the Mauna Kea. All
hope was abandoned and the dele
gates prepared for the worst.
When the Mauna Kea docked at
tho wharf, the pirates quickly
slipped alongside the other end of
the pier. Then the unexpected hap
pened and, much to the delight of
the Ililo and Maui men, a large
body of police jumped out from
hiding places, and arrested every
man jack of the pirates. That was
the stunt pulled off and none of the
pirates had an inkling of what was
coming to them.
Escorted by thousands of people,
and led by tho various civic con
vention delegates, the pirates were
marched along ho streets to the
police station where they rushed
down into the cells. It was a ureat
stunt and the crowd yelled with de
After a while the parade began
again and tho whole bunch march
ed to the Promotion Committee
rooms where everyone registered,
and the delegates were assigned to
their respective hotels. At nine
o'clock the convention opened and
from that on till Tuesday night
there was much serious work and
The luncheon at tho Commercial
Club on Monday was a fine affair
and about two hundred sat down to
the repast. Every walk in life was
represented, and professional and
business men from all the islands
of the group, dined and chatted to
gether. Speeches were in order, of
course, and many excellent ones
"WE UO, WU DO."
On Tuesday, the Ad. Club lunch
eon at the Young Hotel was another
delightful affair and fully two hun
dred and fifty boosters sat down at
tho long tables. It was a wonderful
gathering, and the speeches were
again splendid. President Wallace
II. Farrington was in his element
and, as soon as tho regular business
was finished, he began a campaign
of initiation that surprised many
people. Tho procedure was as fol
lows: "I hear that Mr. Castcndyke,
of Ililo, wishes to become a member
of the Ad. Club. lias Mr. Caston
dyko three dollars?" Chorus: "Ho
has, he has-' Do wo need Casten-
dyke's three dollars?' Chorus
Wo do, wo do. , Do wo need
Castcndyke?" Chorus: "We do,
wo do.', "You arc clcctedl" That
was all there was to it, and tho new
member was called upon to make a
speech. It was great fun and a largo
numner oi wen Known men was
initiated in quick order.
The banqucnt at the Moana was
the biggest thing of its kind ever
pulled off in Hawaii. Three hun
dred or more men sat down to the
affair and, while the repast was a
splendid one, tho speeches that
were made, were the main things
to be proud of
Governor Carter acted as toast-
master and ho called upon the most
brilliant speakers in the sasemblage
to speak. There wereina ny interest
ing addresses, but that of the Hon.
Chas. Cottrill. was, to most people,
the gem of the evening. Mr. Cottrill
spoke at short notice, but his clear,
ringing voice carried conviction to
everyone who heard him speak. He
made a suggestion that brought
down the house." He begged of
everyone present to work all in his
power to have one of the warships
of the American Navy named "Ha
waii." The idea took hold like a
match to coal oil, and cheers went
up from every side of the huge ban
The second civic convention was
something to be. proud of and some
thing that every man who attended
will not forget for the rest of his
life. The next convention is to bo
held on Maui ah, but what's the
use? Maui will show the rest of
the group something that will

If plana do not go astray, Maui is
to bo treated to one of tho most sen
sational stunts ever pulled off in
the Hawaiian group. Tom Gunn,
the Chineso aviator, is to ily from
Honolulu to Kahului. He will use
a hydroplane, and tho machine is
one that can travel along the sur
face of the sea if smooth a& well
as it can through atmosphere.
Gunn has tried out his hydro
plane at Pearl Harbor, and a lady
is to make a fight with him next
week. The combination water-air
ship is thought to be the safest
thing in the world. The aviator
starts from the sea, and, after get
ting up a good speed, rises into tho
air. lie can come down in safety
any old time and rest on the water,
as the airship is fitted with pon
toons. The Chinese expert is going to
Ililo first to give an exhibition.
Upon his return to Honolulu he
will get ready for the fight to Ka
hului. He expects to make tho
journey in forty-five minutes. A
tug will steam out from Honolulu
some hours in advance of his depar
ture. This tug will wait somewhere
off Molokai for Gunn. If all is well
the tug will return to Honolulu.
Another tug will, in tho meantime,
be steaming from Kahului to meet
the aviator and, in this way, he will
bo safeguarded in case of an acci
dent. Will Produce
