Dr. Unthank of Kansas City,
is one of the commissioners to
locate an industrial school for in
corrigible negro girls, and up to
date it is said he has found it an
unthankful job, as no community
is anxious for the school.
We are indebted to the agricul
tural class of the Kapaa School for
some of the best beets and lettuce
we have eaten for a. century. The
school garden is in a flourishing
condition and contains a variety of
vegetables which seem to appre
ciate the attention they receive by
doing their best to excel each otl:e
in growth, quality and beauty.
To Mr. V. F. Sanborn of Hana
lei, we are indebted for a copy of
The Garden Island of February
1902. It appears in a four page,
three column torm ana carries
items concerning local happenings
and conditions which indicate but
a slight change in the last decade.
For instance, Dr. Derby, W. C.
Parke, and Mr. F. Prosser are re
ported in its columns as island
visitors. When we consider that
these items were published ten
years ago, and that at this very
time the present Garden Island
publishes the presence o f these
same personages, all will agree
that history "certainly do" re
v.li' tv .i:ti. uildings lor school

hundred dollars, while class
rooms are so scarce as to com
pel classes to be held under trees
and in halls belonging to charit
able institutions, it is time for
those responsible for such an
idiotic proposition to get a free
ride to the pupule house. There
is little to say in behalf of anv
attempt to economize at the ex
pense of the health of our school
children, yet to see sanitary
closets and fixtures to the amount
of $4,500 placed in one school
alone, wnne class rooms are so
sorely needed, and offer no protest
would be an attitude of indiffer
ence unbecoming in any citizen
possessed with tne best inteiests
of public welfare.
Had this bid received eonsidera
tion, there are four others pract
ically as large as the Hanapepe
school which would have been per
fectly justified in demanding the
same consideration. All to gether
then, the five big schools of the
island would be entitled to a sum
aggregating $22,500 for the con
struction of toilets alone.
This sum would put up nearly
20 extra school rooms, or several
more than at present are required
to house the overflow of atten
dance. Is there any condition of
affairs existing whereby this partic
ular school should receive partic
ular consideration over all others
in this respect? Tin; Garden Is
land strongly favors sanitary
plumbing in every school in the
island, but to neglect schools
which are reallv in need of such,
and place nearly $5,000 on a
Editor Garden Island.
Kindly allow me space in your
valuable paper in which to seek a
little light on a subject which is not
quite clear to those who compose
the skilled class of plantation work
The recent increase in the pay of
field labor I will admit was an
act of generousity and one which I
am sure was appreciated by the
thousands who represent this class.
Now, the question which bothers
your writer, is, why was tins in
crease made? Was it due to the
extra cost of living? Many have
said that the increase in the price
of food stuffs while perhaps not en
tirely responsible for the increase
in salary, was chiefly the cause.
There is another class of labor
know n as "skilled workmen,"
which includes such men as black
smiths, carpenters, sugar boilers,
engineers, office employees, store
managers, clerks etc. , without
whom a plantation could not very
well get at all. Yet this class
have received no such consid
eration as has been shown the la
borer. They may pay 20 per
pound for coffee one month and 30
the next but their pay remains sta
tionary. Some staple foods have
increased within the last year 100
per cent. Has the salary of the
skilled labor increased accordingly?
If the recent increase of the la
borers' pay is due to increase in
cost of living, is it any more than
reasonable to expect the same con
sideration regarding skilled labor?
The plan adopted by some planta
tions the Makaweli for instance
which allows a bonus, is one to be
highly commended, and shows an
appreciation of those responsible in
the greatest measure for the success
of the Company. Q. D.
