You mention in your letter "the
somewhat strained relations exist
ing in the town of Waimea in re
gard to them" (referring to Mr.
and Mrs. H. C. Brown), so in
connection with this phase of the
affair, I shall say only that the
Department did not have a good
reason to believe its action would
be in accord with the wishes of a
majority of the leaders of the
community most concerned with
the conduct of the Waimea School.
The Department's reasons for
not appointing Mr. and Mrs.
Brown to Waimea are, I think,
very plain. Furthermore, their
disregard for instructions make it
impossible to keep them in the
service in any place and still main
tain discipline. If these teach
ers are allowed to break the rules
with impunity, all teachers should
have the same privilege and the
result would be chaos.
To tliis may be added the fact
which, I think, will be admitted
by anyone who knows Mr. and
Mrs. Brown that the former is
so completely under the dominance
of the latter that, n o matter
whether she were his assistant or
not, she would be in control of
him and his administration of the
school in which he was placed.
This condition has caused much
trouble in the past and the Browns
have been warned of the conse
quences which might result there
from. In this respect, I beg to
refer you to a letter sent by me to
Mr. Brown on December 21, 1914,
"At a meeting of the Oahu
Commissioners and myself, held
in Honolulu, December 29th, the
matter of the Misses Jackson and
Cummings, who are now in Hono
lulu, was discussed. These ladies
applied for transfers from the
Waimea school and as such could
not be granted thev resigned,
stating that they would not go
back to Waimea.
"The kernel of their complaints
was that Mrs. Brown is entirely
too prominent in the adminis
tration of the school; that she
'bosses' the principal and the oth
er assistants: that her orders are
enforced even when they are con
trary to those of the principal;
that quarrels and contradictions
are carried on in front of the pu
"In view of the fact that com
plaints of this very nature have
come to the Department from va
rious sources, some of these in
dependent of the schffol. it was
decided that the Superintendent
should write to Mr. Brown in
forming him of the fact. In
reaching this decision the case
was borne in mind of a couple of
teachers, now on Kauai, where
the Commissioners demoted the
husbnnd-principal and placed his
wife in his position as principal,
thereupon establishing a prece
dent which may, or may not, be
followed if similar cases occur in
From the above you may notice
that the Department acted only
after having had its patience thor
oughly tried and with the convic
tion that it would be unwise to
appoint Mr. and Mrs. Brown
either at Waimea or anywhere
else, and that its action is in ab
solute accord with the School
Rules and the Rules and Regula
tions. Yours very respectfully,
Hhnky W. Kinney,
Superintendent Public Instruction.
