Supt. Pope Refuses
"WE ARE NOT GOING TO DISORGANIZE THE WHOLE SCHEDULE TO FIT ONE PARTICULAR CASE." Superintendent Pope In Hawaiian Star November 1 3th.
Within this quotation, Superintendent of Public Instruction Pope, evades the teachers' schedule question notwithstanding the fact that he knows perfectly well that there are many cases of injustice among th: teachers on Kauai, due entirely to the
present schedule. When he says "we are not going to disorganize the schedule to (it one particular case," he is as fully aware that other irregularities exist, as we are, and therefore this statement, emitting from such a source, plainly indicates that the
teachers who have been wronged cannot expect to be treated with the slightest consideration from the man who, under ordinary circumstances, would be the person to right those wrongs.
Mr. Pope admits that many of our principals are imported from the coast, and possess excellent credentials. Now we want Mr. Pope to tell us why a principal who possesses such credentials, who has taught in city schools in Massachusselts for
eight years, who has taught in the Islands for years (including several years in the Honolulu Normal) and for the last two years as principal on Kauai, is paid the sum of $83.33 the same as many of our assistants draw, who have the responsibility qf
but one room? Can he tell us why she should receive the same salary with but two assistants as she does with three? Can he tell us why a principal in a four room school, by transferring to one of nine or ten rooms, draws the same salary? Can he
tell us why these teachers are not paid according to the law which states most emphatically that their salaries must be based upon experience, qualifications and the records of their work? Can he tell us if it were not his experience and qualification that
won him his present position? Is Mr. Pope responsible for the "teachers' schedule?" From the above quotation the public will infer as much. We have had as yet, little intention of venting any spleen upon the Department head, confining our attack to
the schedule committee. But Mr. Pope now seems inclined to consider it his duty to defend injustice rather than confess to a fault. An honest ai.d upright mzn, as we have always believed Mr. Pope to he, thus inviting the criticism of a just
public, a public who has paid him the highest tribute possible by placing him in the position he now occupies cannot but be looked upon with disappointment. The teachers' schedule is so fraught with injustice as to render it perfectly ridiculous. We
Relieve Mr. Pope realizes this fact but feels that he should be loyal to the cause. Such an attitude u?),i his part, howier, is rather unlindy and is creatuj a strong feeling against his otherwise commendable administration. The schedule is all wrong.
Mr. Pope knows it is, and knowing this, should hesitate no longer in making an effort towards righting the wrong.
.Following is the report of the
Grand Jury at the termination of
its work at the beginning of the
To the Honorable Jacob Hardy,
Judge of the Circuit Court Fifth
Circuit, Territory of Hawaii.
The undersigned, the Grand
Jurors duly empaneled in and for
the Circuit Court of the Fifth
Judicial Circuit, Territory of Ha
waii, for the November term, 1911,
do herewith respectfully present
our report as follows:
After having been duly sworn as
Grand Jurors, and W. Scheiber
being duly appointed by your
honor as our foreman, we retired
to the Grand Jury room and elect
ed A. de Bretteville as our clerk,
whereupon we proceeded to hear
the evidence in the following cases:
1. Territory of Hawaii vs. Naka
mura Egiro, charged with mur
der in the first degree. A true
2. Territory of Hawaii vs. Kim
tori, charged with burglary in
the second degree. A true bill
3. Territory of Hawaii vs. Shiro
Baragas charged assult with in
tent to murder. A true bill.
4. Territory of Hawaii vs. Ma
riano de la Santos, charged with
assault and battery with a
weapon obviously and imminent
ly dangerous to life. A true bill
5. Territory of Hawaii vs. Hono
ris, charged with an attempt to
assult with a weapon obviously
and imminently dangerous to
life. No bill found.
Besides the above cases as found
by your Grand Jurors, there is one
case to which your Grand Jurors
have found a true bill, but prays
your honor that the same may be j
set on the secret file, until the
person therein named is arrested
and be under the control a n d j
custody of the Sheriff of Kauai.
We regret to call the attention
of the court to the unpreparedness
of the police in regnrd to witnesses
in the cases presented. When
wanted they were not on hand, con
sequently your Grand Jurors had
to adjourn to the following day.
However, your Grand Jurors be
lieve, that this unpreparedness
does not wholly fall to the lot of
the police department, but in some
respects upon the District Magis
trate of Lihue, for failure on his
part to file the necessary trans
cripts in cases committed to the
term of this court.
Having concluded our duties up
on which we were called, we thank,
the court for its kind attention. I
Respectfully Submitted. '

A special meeting of the mem
bers of the Kegel Club was called
last Thursday night for the pur
pose of considering a challenge re
ceived from Chairman E. F. Dei
nert of the Puuneue Athletic Club
of Maui, to a bowling contest, the
same to consist of five American
games, to play according to the
rules of the American Bowling Con
gress. It was agreed by the members
of the local club that the challenge
be accepted, and that the games be
played off the first week in Decem
ber and the Secretary was instruct
ed to so inform the Maui represen
tative. In case the program goes
through, probably the Kauai's lTne
up will be about as follows: C
Maser, H. Wolters, Win. Rice Jr.,
Frank Crawford, Carls, with Hills,
Rohrig, Kuhlmau, Winter and Sie
bel as substitudes.
Chairman Deinert suggested hav
ing a representative from each is
land present when the contest is
pulled off. After a little discussion
on this point, the members decid
ed that it would not be necessary
to send a member to Maui, but
that if the latter chose to have 'a
man come to Kauai, he would be
received with much pleasure.
