.Public works. Public works are
being energetically forwarded and
cover quite a range of subjects
particularly that of wharves and
water-front improvements. Nearly
everv island port has had attention,
and the coming year should show
completion of most projects not in
conjunction with those of the Fed
eral Government. The const! uc
tion of a modern prison has been
commenced during the year and is
well under way on a site covering
9.816 acres in area in a suburban
district of Honolulu. The sum of
$150,000 was appropriated out o
loan funds for this purpose. Ex
penditurcs during the year amount
ed to $30,842.28, leaving a balance
of $119,157.72 unexpended.
Honolulu Harbor enlargement
Plans for material enlargement
have been made, but await the
necessary appropriations. T h

entering on extensive wharf im
provements at nononuu aim are
completing the few requirements
of the other island ports.
Education The number of
school children increased during
Hhe year by 3,241, making a total
of 36,529, and it is estimated that
at the opening of schools Septem
ber 13, 1915, the enrollment will
be 37,729 pupils. The school accom
modations under the bungalow sys
tern of buildings, so adapted to the
climate aim nnanciai resources, are
rapidly supplying the demand for
room for the marked increase of
pupils. With a lack of skilled em
ployment, the question for occupa
tion for the educated youth pre
sents quite a problem. The only
sensible solution has seemed to be
to encourage to a greater degree
education that will not result large
ly i n dependence upon mental
rather than physical employment
The course of study as adopted
has the above in view, although
every facility and opportunity is
provided for those mentally equip
ped, ambitious, and able, that they
may acquire higher education
