The reasons for the nonsupport of

number of pupils eligibfe for en
trance to such an institution. The
experiment will be made with the
Lihue school first and l f condi
tions wairant the establishment jf
an up-to-date high school for the
island, the legislature, at its next
session will have no difficult' m

Bryan stepped on the British
lion's tail in a recent speech, and

Mr. Bryan told the truth. When
ever the wrongs inflicted in Ire
land by England are brought to
view, it is no wonder that the
lion tucks its tail l)etween its hind
legs and howls.

The Bank of Hawaii and Uncle
