Continued from pace 1
for and we have had nothing what
ever to do with the placing of sala
ries Tlie t w o great questions
that need looking into in this conn
, try and have been dealt with by
the legislature are the health of
the children and their education.
These have been great problems
with us. Matters have been com
ing up which place the appro
j priation far and away beyond the
income of the country, and for this
reason some of the salaries paid are
j inadequate, but as I have said,
we have nothing to do with the
I placing of teachers. I believe we
I should gel in this country a class
of leathers holding high grade cer
tificates good and capable teach
ers and to do this we must pay
4ood salaries to get them here (ap
plause). Although in some of our
schools high g r a d e certificated
teachers may not be required, we
want good teachers and they ought
to be paiil bigger salaries. This
has al wax sheen my contention, and
it I go to tlie legislature next time,
it will be my aim (as it has alxvaxs
been ) to appropriate money enough
for the educational svstein in the
Territory of Hawaii, (applause)
At twelve o'clock, Mr. Brodie
announced a recess of an hour and
.i quarter that the guests might in
dulge themselves in a bountiful
spread composed of the contents
of the various baskets, augment
ed by the delicious salads, cake,
lemonade and colfee which were
so lavishly supplied bv kind heart
ed Mrs. V. II . Rice, Sr. A long
table with a dainty covering of
snow while linen had been ar
ranged in a building (which had
been thoughtfully erected by Mr.
W. II. Rice, Sr. for just such oc
casions,) that stood on the church
ground in the rear of the church.
Kverxbody hut a helping hand
and in less than no time this long
table became a veritable slack of
the daintiest edibles that dainty
hands could prepare. A continual
tlow of merriment and witicisms
testified to the spirit of the occa
sion. At one o'clock, Mr. Brodie again
called the meeting to order and
in a few well chosen words, in
'oniied the teachers that the next
thing on llie program would be
'. h e organization of it teachers'
association, and the first step to be
taken was to appoint a temporary
chairman and secretary.
Normal Inspector Gibson, a
guest of the teachers, was chosen
as chairman, and Mrs. Keighlley
as secretary pro tern. In accept
ing the chairmanship, Mr. Gibson
pokc as follows:
"I must thank you for this
honor and I am very glad to be
ible to do a little to assist in form
ing a teachers' association. All
the other large Islands have teach-
jrs associations at present and as
far back as I can remember we
have had teachers' associations on
this Island, altho' not exactly on
the s one onkr as the one xve are
now about to form. We used to
meet once a month, a n d later
'when we got more careless) once
term, but we have kept it up
nice 188 until some tune ago.
I do not reniemder exactly when
tlie association died."
Here Mr. Brodie interupted the
speaker long enough to add the
"We met here 14 years ago this
fall. It commenced to rain when
we reached the iron bridge at
Huleia, we got stuck in the mud
with our bus and 2 small mules,
the result being that we all had to; by-laws composed of C. 0. Smith,)
v.i!k thro' the mud to mv house 'Mr. Morse and Miss McClymont
which xve reached at 2 o'clock in was named with instruction tore-,
the morning. Waimea was made I port at the next meeting. Mr. j
by 4 o'clock. That was the last Rice in accepting his office spoke1
meeting of the teachers' associa- in part as follows:
tion." ! "Ladies and gentlemen, while
Continuing. Mr. Gibson said: thanking you for the honor I think
l Ot course there xvere extenuating
circumstances, but xve fortunately
have good roads todax with no
feir of being stranded in the mud.
In those days we had difficulty in
lilting enough people to fill the
dilu-n nt oiTu-es and some had to
do a double duty. At luncheon
today I could not h ip noticing
the great change which have
taken place on this island and the
large number of teachers we now
have as compared with that time.
We then had, I believe, 16 school -
teachers on Kauai, whereas to
day the tolal is 70, and still the
tfood work goes on. Xoxv that
these 70 tt-aclieis may do their best
work, 1 think i t well to have an
! organization. This organization
' will in no way be forced upon any come was an agreement to hold a
teacher, nor will the department meeting at Lihue annually in May
insist o'i their taking part in the with two auxiliary in e et in gs
i work of it other than voluntarily, to be held in Kapaa and Hanapepe
i and by their own choice. Like at the discretion of the Super
a!l oth-r businesses, calling and ' vising Principal,
professions, it is necessary fpr; A general discussion on educa
teachers to yrow and cultivate a tioual affairs then followed which
