At Prof JlcCluskey
Resent Interview He Gave Regarding
Educational and Other Conditions
In North Carolina.
Prof. William McCluskey, supervis
ing principal of Maul, has come in for
a scries of warm roasts from the
newspapers of the section of North
Carolina, where he spent the last two
years, on account of an Interview ho
gave with a Honolulu newspaper up
on his return. In that interview Prof.
McCluskey was not particularly com
plimentary to the Bection of the south
in which he had been living, describ
ing a lynching bee which he had wit
nessed in part, and asserting that
North Carolina is far behind Hawaii
in matters educational.
The Charlotte Daily Observer, of
Macklenburg County, North Carolina
has the following to say editorially
concerning rrof. McCluskey's state'
"Prof. William McCluskey of Hono
hilu, former superintendent of cduca
tion of Macklenburg county, has a
number of friends in this community
who are grievously disappointed at
the representations he has been
pleased to make of the people of
Mecklenburg. His interview in the
Honolulu paper, copied in The Obser
ver, yesterday, was the subject of a
good deal of talk and none of it of a
complimentary kind. Those who fel
lowshipped with Mr. McCluskey would
not have supposed that he would
be guilty of slurring a people among
whom he has resided and had work
ed. He had formed a mighty good
opinion of the people of Mecklenburg
during the fifteen days of his rest
dence here up to the time of the
Farmers' Institute held at Carolina
School House on August 14, 1913. The
eulogy he pronounced on them at the
time is still fresh in the minds of
those who were thrilled by bis elo
quence. The matter may be presented
most pointedly through the aid of the
'deadly parallel,' and we shall give
what he said at the school- house on
the date mentioned, with what he -is
quoted as having said in Honolulu."
I want to express my apprecia
tion of the hearty and cordial co
operation that the intelligent peo
ple of Mecklenburg have given mo
and the cordi.il reception extend
ed me. Mecklenberg is a great
county and I believe her people
are the best in the world. Your
teachers are progressive, your
people are enterprising and your
young boys and girls as bright
as any I ever saw anywhere. I
am glad my. lot has been cast
among them. You are advancing
along progressive educational
The Mecklenburg people are
stranded on the rocks of the an
cient classics. They still posses
to a large degree the old English
idea of an education, yet their
teaching staffs are not education
ally equipped to teach classics.
That country is forty years, yes,
half a century behind Hawaii in
education. It has not taken to
modern teaching much yet, though
the idea is germinating. They
have an agricultural school at
Raleigh, the State Capitol, but
from what I learned it is not given
much serious attention yet, the
people have not awakened to up-to-date
Disappointed In Professor
"Mr McCluskey recounts his per
sonal observations of a mob in Char
lotte and also tells of his narrow es
cape from being treated likewise by
an angry gathering of several hu'n
dred 'Crackers' as further evidence of
benighted condition in this part of the
country. The fact that Mr. McCluskey
is a man of intelligence makes the dis
appointment in him the greater. It is
just a well that he was not given op
portunity for a longer stay among a
people whose civilization he appears
to have been working for unaware
Dr. Burt Hears of Record
Flight of Carrier Pigeon
Dr. F..Purt, the well known gov
ernment physician of Lahaina, has
handed the "Maui News" a news
paper account of a 2200 mile flight
of a messenger pigeon, which is be
lieved to establish a record. Dr. Burt
was aware that the test was to be
made, and is especially infeiested in
it for that reason. He believes that
the accomplishment of the little bird
in question will also be of interest to
others and especially to school child
ren. The article in question follows:
'C. D. Miles, who is on the coast

recent copy of the Los Angeles Ex

Sixteen members of the Hawaiian
band, under Mr. Amasiu, are expect
ed at aLhaina next week at the in
vitation of Lahaina residents. On he
recent Kauai trip, they have assured
the management of the Valley Isle
Theatre that they would come to Wai

are carefully selected from the lead
ing members of the band and will be
an added attraction for Wailuku dur
ing their sojourn here.
Gets Hawaiian Band
Lahaina is to be the goal of a large
number of central Maui persons to
morrow and Sunday, and the reason
is the visit of the Hawaiian band of
Honolulu, which will arrive there by
the Claudinc tonight for an extended
visit. There will be a concert for
tomorrow afternoon, at 2 o'clock, and
a dance in the armory In the evening,
at which the Honolulu musicians will
supply the music. On Sunday after

be sixteen musicians in the party,
besides Mrs. Alapai, the well known

but the program has not been outlined
further than Monday night.
