Hilo, Hawaii, September 26, 191'2
' Editor Garden Island:
In the issue of TrtE Garden Is
- land bearing date September 17,
1912, appears a statement to the
effect that one, "Manuel E. Silva,

ian Science Church, is on Kauai
with a view to establishing branch
organizations of the church."
With reference to the foregoing
publication I wish to state officially
through your columns that there is
in the Territory of Hawaii but one
Christian Scien church, namely,
First Church of Christ, Scientist,
in Honolulu, which is incorporated
unfler the laws of the Territory of
H'jp.ii , and like every other au
thorized Christian Science .church
is a branch of The First Church of
Christ. Scientist, in Boston Mass.
With this church the person men
tioned in the news item above. re
ferred to, has not, and never has
had, any connection, whatever, nor
has any organization which h e
purports to represent, any relation
or resemblance, religious or thera
peutic, to First Church of Christ,
Scientist, in Honolulu, above
specified as being-tht orilv Christian
Science church in this Territory;
nor has it the right to use the term
Christian Science in referring to it
self or its activities.

Cheek the sub

Thruout the rural portions of
Hawaii there is a real and large
need for library facilities more
general than those existing at the
present time. As in rural regions
the world over, books are scarce.
The people in the country should
have accessible and reliable in
formation concerning the . things
of their daily environment.
The 1 raveling Libraries have
been established to partially meet
this need of the rural committees
of Hawaii. The college of Ha
waii, in cooperation with the De
partment of Public Instruction,
conducts these libraries o n the
four islands Oahu, Hawaii. Maui,
and Kauai. A circuit may later
be established on Molokoi.
Each library consists of about
twenty-five books, dealing mainly
with agricultural and related sub
jects. The books are modern,
simple, lion technical, and author
itative. The college provides the
books and the boxes for their trans
portation, and oversees the for
warding of the libraries from
school to school. The Department
of Public Instruction pays trans
portation charges, and is respon
sible, thru its principals, for the
books while they are in the schools.
There is no expense of any kind,
so far as the school or principal
is concerned, connected with the
use of these libraries. They are
sent in good faith to the schools
on the circuits, on the principal's
guarantee that the library will be
properly cared for and promptly
The library will remain at each
chool on a circnit for a period of
one calendar month, at the expira
tion of which time the principal
will pack and forward the library
to the school next on the circuit.
There are but few duplicates in
the libraries, so that each library
may make a circuit of all the is
lands. Additional libraries will be
interpolated as the demaud justi
fies. The libraries will be sent only
to those schools whose principals
signify a desire to receive them,
and agree to their safe-keeping.
Any school principal desiring a
library should write to the College
of Hawaii upon the accompanying
The libraries are for the use of
the teachers, the older pupils, and
the people of the community. The
principal may make any reasonable
arrangements regarding the loan
ing of the books in his care, mak
ing sure, of course, that the
books are duly returned. The
books are best circulated . among
the persons interested by loaning
them for definite, short, ieriods

When the Hall arrived last Fri
day, instead ol following the usual
course which is, that the mailcomes
off ahead of any freight, the reverse
was the case, which resulted in an

and the force was compelled to

a bit more promptness- upon the
