The editor of the Hilo tribune,
having referred to our recent ar
tide relating to his attitude toward
our teaching stall as of "no in
terest but to the writer, came
back in his last issue, with a reply
which embodied the greater portion
of it, adding thereto-as he would
have his readers believe-an air of
superior journalistic profession
ahsui which would lead some to
suspect him to be one of the corre
spondents to the Kohala Midget.
As to "nasty personal flings,'
we regret that the Tribune has
chosen this term, but since such is
the case, we feel that to apply the
same to its fomer remarks would
be q u i te pardonable. Granting
that there was a personal fling'
in our article, did the Editor of the
1 nbuue not know from whom it
came, and for whom it was inteu
ded? He did or at any rate he
guessed correctly. When the Edi
tor of the Tribune stated that
teachers taught to suit their own
ideas, and with a view of advance
ment to the detriment of the child,
was not any teacher able to ask,
"Did h e mean me?" Did they
not each have cause to say, "He
meant me?" Can a more "nasty
personal fling" be imagined?
Again: The "Superior" editor
states that "a reform school should
be established for teachers," but
did he specify certain teachers as
qualified to enter such institution?
No, he did not. Do you not see
evidence of "just a little more
nasty personal flinging?" well,
Under these circumstances, have
not the teachers just cause to re
sent insinuations of such a character
made against them as a body? Ac
cording to the Tribune, one or all
of our teachers might have been
