Attorney A. G. Kaulukou gave
the opinion that the law was ex
plicit and, moreover, mandatory.
Under it the department of edu
cation was ordered to do certain
things, and there was no way for
it to escape its duty.
Senator C. A. Rice agreed that
the law was mandatory. He asked
for a statement from Supervisor
Wishard as to the ability of the
county of Kauai to perform its
part of tlie duty in the matter.
Supervisor Wishard replied that
the Territorial appropriation of
$3,000 for the school could be avail
able, but in order to make it so,
the item for school buildings at
Waimea would have to be held up
for awhile. He favored doing so.
I n his opinion the question of
housing teachers and pupils should
be left to the department of edu
cation, that department already
having the detail of courses of
study in charge.
Judge Hofgaard, o f Waimea,
said that when the matter first
came up for discussion sometime
ago, he was under a wrong im
pression as to the law. He had
found it to be mandatory, and
that there was nothing to be done
but to get together and make the
school as great a success as pos
sible. The question next foremost
in his mind was that of boarding
facilities for outside pupils at Li
hue. II . II . Brodie, of Ilanapepe,
agreed that the latter was a vital
Mr. Brandt remarked that that
was one of the subjects properly
coming before the meeting. What
was wanted of the people of Lihue,
where the school would be located,
and of the people of Kauai, was
active sympathy and support.
With these, success was assured;
but without them the school would
have an up-hill time of it. lie
wanted assurances of enthusiasm
and active cooperation. The sum
of $3,000 which had been appro
priated would not be sufficient for
teachers' cottages, dormitories,
Mr. Lydgate asked , tentatively ,
and on his own behalf, if it would
be possible to combine the present
select school with the proposed
high school, probably the high
school taking over the buildings
and property of the select school
for teachers' cottages, etc.
The question was not answered
Mr. Rice asked if it was not a
fact that Honolulu, Maui and Ha
waii had nothing to do with sup
plving teacher's cottages for their
high schools, respectively.
No one seemed to be clear on
the point. Mr. Brodie suggested,
.however, that it would be practi
I cal to design cottages for teachers
j which would include also housing
i facil ties for boarding pupils. The
The observance of Easter Sunday
at the Waimea Catholic ohurch
turned out to be a huge, successful
and most pleasant affair. The pro
gram lasted from 10 a. m., when
High Miss was conducted by
Father Celestine, to 2 in the after
noon, when the crowd began lei
surely to disperse.
The occasion was notable fot ex

matter of homes for pupils living
away from Lihue was a great pro
blem. Before taking any definite
action on this phase of the matter,
however, a definite line on the
number of pupils to be accommo
dated should be obtained.
G. T. Greig, of Makaweli, stat
ed that on Maui pupils were taken
into the high school down to and
including the fifth grade, but those
in the lower grades paid a tuition,
which assisted in paying the ex
penses of the school. If the same
plan were adopted on Kauai, thirty
to thirty-five pupils would at once
be enrolled from the districts out
side of Lihue. He thought a dor
mitory and boarding house scheme
for outside pupils would be the
most satisfactory scheme, and
would be self-supporting.
M r. Broadbent, manager fo
Grove Farm, said that sacrifices
should be made by Lihue people
to accomodate pupils from outside
districts. Enthusiasm in regard to
the school should be so general
and strong that there would be no
difficulty in obtaining all the faci
lities required for boarding out
Mr Kaulukou thought if there
were the proper interest in the
subject of education in the other
districts of the island, the parents
could be depended upon to look
out for the matter of living accom
modations. Mr. Lydgate urged the pro
viding of facilities for getting chil
dren from the outside districts
into ihe school and for taking care
of them in Lihue. He wanted
to make the high selw ol a success,
from the start, and believed that
no stone should be unturned which
might result in a large enrollment
at the beginning He repeated that
he thought combining the select
with the high school would facili
He, then, offered the follow
ing resolution, which was carried
by unanimous vote:
"Resolved, That it is the sence
of this representative meeting of
the people of Kami that the De
partment of Educat'on be urged
to establish the Kauai High School
at Lihue, as provided by law, with
out unnecessary delay.''
Mr. Lvdgate further moved
that a committee of three be ap
pointed to take up and investigate
the matte: of accommodations at
Lihue for pupils from the outside
districts, reporting a t a future
meeting. Carried, and the follow
ing were nominated ami elected:
J. M. Lydgate, E. H. W. Broad
bent and II. II. Brodie.
The meeting thereupon adjourned.

The following rather remarkable letter comes from F. C. Lowry,

I would call your attention to the fact that the in-hond price of sugar is today
low liecause the World's production of ls,C7,0U0 tons is a record production. On
