THE GARDEN ISLANO TUESDAY, U KE 20. 1916
Thr Garden Island has re
ceived the following letter Irom K.
A. Knudsen, commissioner of edu
cation for Kauai, together with a
copy of a self-explanatory letter
from one Yauiamoto, with the re
quest that the same be published:
Kekaha.KauaiJune 15th., 1916.
Editor Garden Island:
In the Advertiser of June 6th,
I see that a correspondent from
Lihue makes the following state
ment: "A committee called upon Com
missioner Eric Knudsen but re
ceived little satisfaction."
Who the writer is I do not know,
but whoever she may be, she has
been badlv informed, for I am s'ure
the committee received a great deal
The committee in the first place
announced themselves as a com
mittee representing the Mokihana
Club and told me that since the
appointment of teachers had been
published all the teachers on the
island of Kauai were trembling in
their shoes and that they particu
larly feared for and they wished
to be assured that the Department
did not contemplate firing her as
she was a great favorite in. I
assured them that as far as I knew
the Department had no intention
of "firing" her. Surely that was
They told me that it was the
duty of a commissioner before any
appointments were made to con
sult all the leading men of Lihue.
I assured them that there were so
many prominent men in Lihue
that such a task would be difficult,
but that I would try and do better!
in the future.
Also satisfactory, I should say.
They demanded that the Browns
should be reinstated somewhere
immediately, basing their demand
on the presumption that theBrowns
had never been "warned."
I assured them that the Browns
had been amply warned, but that
I would take the matter up again
with the Department which I
promptly did. Also satisfactory.
They accused the Department of
acting in a ruthless way in trans
ferring a young teacher named
Yamamoto to Honolulu "much
against his will", and that in con
senting to his transfer I. as Com
missioner of Kauai, had" had the
wool pulled over my eyes."
As the ladies of the committee
represent quite a number of peo
ple in Lihue, I ask you also to
publish Mr. Yamamoto's letter, in
the hands o f the Department,
which will show that the Depart
ment is not a juggernaut but is at
tempting to help and assist all
young and able teachers and make
their employment not owly profit
able but pleasant. It will also
show the ladies of the committee
that a vast amount ot wool is be-

KAUAI DORSE IS
VICTOR III FINALS
The race which was run over at
Honolulu between Spalding's Sky
scraper, of Kealia, and Dutch
Parrot, Harry Baldwin's Maui
horse, resulted in victory for the
Kauai entry. The Honolulu Ad
vertiser gives the following ac
count of the deciding event:
A match race was run at Kapio
lani Park yesterday morning, be
tween Skyscrapper and Dutch Par
rot, at six furlongs.
Dutch Parrot won the fourth
race on Monday, after Skyscraper
had romped to the wire ahead of
his field, in a false start.
A cup was dependent upon the
race and Harry Baldwin very
sportingly offered to race Jimmy
Spalding again over the same dis
tance, as there was some dissatis
faction over the start which his
mare, Dutch Parrot, received in
the actual race.
In the race yesterday Dutch
Parrot and Skyscraper made a
neck and neck race of it for the
first half, when the Kauai gelding
drew ahead to win by a matter of
Quite a crowd of members of
the club and not a few of the hoi
polloi went out to the track to see
the race run.
