It is not this nancr's intention
to offer any comment upon the
quamications ot any teacher, to
taise any question as to why any
teacher has been dropped by the
department,- nor to dictate to .the
board, any policy whatsoever.
However, there are certain obli
gations between the teacher and
board which should be carried out
for the sake of the best interests of
the schools. JPhat the board de
liberately discharges a man without
a moment's notice lacks the proaer
idea of its obligations, goes with
out saying. The teacher .in ques
tion is C. B Morse, principal of
Hanapcp school who was not re
appointed by the board nor was he
given any inkling of the impending
change. Here is a man who came
to Kauai to tench and was given
a position in a sch.. A the principal
of which ha i ijecn elevated to a
supervisors),: p -uid who had taught
the school or so nn. iy years that
he naturally a, id justly, perhaps
considered i: the be school on
the island. T'-;re nr- not many
of our U-i-ln:.-, who would break
their necks to iccept tin- Ilanapepe
principalship under such circums
tances. Be that as it may, however, the
manner in which Mr. Morse was
disposed of is the point at issue.
Mr. Brodie, while not holding the
appointive power, knew for a pos
itive fact whether or not the prin
cipal had given satisfaction, and
under these circtmstances the duty
of Mr. Brodie lay clearly before
him. AND THAT DUTY WAS
TO HAVE INFORMED MORSE
OF CONDITIONS, so that retir
ing Principal Morse might have
had an opportunity for other ar
rangements. Mr. Morse had in
vested in a homestead, begun the
raising of pines, and his future
success depended largely upon his
having a permanent position. It
is said in connection with the
pineapple ranch, that the same
supervising principal furnished
the plants at so much per, cash,
notwithstanding that the latter
must have known that Morse could
The respectability of a principal
ship of any school is of sufficient
importance to warrant like con
sideration and to discontinue any
teacher without notice as is un
derstood in the case of Mr. Morse,
seems inexcusable even though
the board is composed of inexper
ienced members. Experience is
not necessarily a requisite wherein
a simple act of justice is concerned.
The commissioners of education

GQilseqiiqnce need ngeesr.Qri,y dc

their respective supervisors in tht

, circumstances it might be will for
the board to get a Kttle better ac
quainted with the supervising
principals before tne Aufrast meet

got about what they were after.;
Several applicants were after, thej
same lots, hence the dropping; out
of some wHo entered with only
certain lots in view. The lots of
Kalaheo and Kapaa having been
buncbd together, a cerlan
amount of confusion resulted, but
this soon righted itself and matters
moved along in a most satisfactory
Mr. J. O. Lutted. the original
instigator of the canning factory,
was present, having drawn a num
ber, which resulted in his securing
three of the choicest lots. Manv
of those getting homesteads, ex
pressed their intentions to begin
building at once. With the advent
of these new homesteaders, will
come the necessity of a road up to
their lands. Here is where that
312.000 appropriation will play a
prominent part. This amount, to
gether with the sum realized by
the sale of the lands, all of which
is available at once, should make a
pretty good start on the road.
