THE BROWN CASE
rhc Star-Bulletin's account Mon
day of the hearing in the Brown
ase having been published m tins
paper the next day, the following
partial account from the Advertiser
of the succeeding morning is given,
this beinn m accord with the idea
of The Gaudkn Island to give both
sides to the controversy an oppor
tunity to reaoh the Kauai public.
The account follows:
Insubordination, the dominance
of Mrs. Brown, an assistant, over
Mr. Brown, the principal, and oth
er teachers at the Y aimea School,
remark alleged to have been made
bv Mrs. Brown when Eric A.Knud-
scn was appointed commissioner of

weak reed to lean on", and pilikia
said to have been had between Mrs.
Brown and Miss I J of guard,
another assistant at the Wannea
school,werc the charges which the
hearing yesterday brought out which
which made the case, substantiat
ing the claim made that the Browns
had not been reappointed "for the
good of the department."
Hearing Was Exhauttive.
Mr. and Mrs. Brown and a nuni
ier of her "witness"testificd yester'
lav. Petitions, letters and other
documentary evidence of endorse
ment and support of the Browns
were also introduced and read. The
minutes of former sessions of the
hoard and copies of the ollice cor
respondence were scored, examined
and excerpls read an quoted dur
ing the several hours ot the hear
ing. Although Mrs. B. D. Bond, one
of the Big Island commissioners,
was absent being away in the main
land, she was there in spirit, for a
letter written by her told how she
had learned that Kauai was unanim
ous for the Browns.
Closely questioned by Attorney
Patterson, George S. Raymond, inspector-general
of schools, admitted
that, after having cautioned the
Browns once, there had been no
further complaint from any source.
He had landed at Waiinea once and
gone straight to the house of Miss
Hofgaard, a teacher in the same
school. Mrs. Brown had learned
oi this and, apparently slighted at
the act. of lese majesto, had had
some discussion about it with Ray
mond, yet this had not been ma
terial and could not be held as much
of a charge against the Browns, it

"If the commissioners decide to
rci -.Mate Mr. and Mrs. Brown,
would you have any objection?"
Mr. Patterson asked Superintendent
Kinney at one stage during the hear
ing. "Well, now, I do not care to an
swer (hid question,'' Mr. Kinney re
plied. ' The commissioners will at
tend to th;'t feature, I believe, after
tin; have conferred among them
selves.'' Mrs. Bi"wn told how the Waimca
teachers had formed a cooperative
organisation wherein teae.hei.- hav
ing special aptitude for certain lines
of teaching were made members of
of special committees. Mr. Brown
appointed Mrs. Blown t o have

Pilikia Among Women
Mrs. Brown had been asked, she
said, ny miss tioigaard to assist her
in getting her attendance book in
order, she having got her work in
this regard all mixed. Mrs. Brown
helped Miss Hofgaard in this line,
she claimed, but after she learned
that Miss Hofgaard was peeved she
simply cut out all acquaintance with
"Why, during the five years we
taught at Waiinea, 1 don't think 1
was in Miss Hofgaard's school room
more than four times," Mrs. Brown
explained. "I never went there to
give orders nor did 1 dominate her
work. When I went I did so to see
some little brother or sister of one
of my pupils, to learn something in
connection with my own work."
Superintendent Kinney said that
Mrs. Brown on three separate and
distinct occasions rei used to taue tne
required examination of the school
laws, tier claim that she did not
know this was required of the teach
ers was ill-founded, he said. Parti
cular attention to this work had
been called to in the Educational Re
view published by the department .
No Night Sassion For Them.
Mr. Raymond during one stage
of the hearing said that one of the
complaints some one had lodged
against the Browns, and particular
ly against Mrs. Brown, was that
they refused to attend the evening
meetings of the Kauai Teachers
Union. When this had been put
up to him during an official visit to
Kauai. Mr. Raymond said he told
the complaint that he could not see
how the Browns could be made to
attend these meetings in their own
hours if they did not see fit to do
There was also mention of trouble
between the Browns and a carpenter
who had done some work at the
Waiinea school. The man was a
relative of Deputy Sheriff Crowell
and the latter, the Browns claimed
circuWion and securing of petitions
requesting thi'ir reinstatement.
The charge that the Browns had
family quarrels and spats in the
presence of the pupils fell to the
ground when Mr. Raymond said
that during his visit to the school
he had never seen or heard any
thing of that sort.
u; No Domination of Hubby
That Mrs. Brown dominated her
husband to a large extent not only
in the family circle but as well in
the conduct of tne school was elabor
ated on to a marked degree, Mr.
Brown manfully resented the insi
nuation that ho was not the boss of
the household or the school. Mrs.
Brown said that in matters of school
g ivern mcnt she always obeyed and
respected the views of the principal
The foiner principal showed that
when he and his wife had first tak
en the scTool at Waiinea in charge
they found a run-down institution;
that they had rehabilitated it in
more than one way. The local school
authorities were quite agreed that
such was the case. Both Mr' Kin
ney and Mr. Raymond, and even
Commissioner Knudsen h a d no
fault to find with the conduct and
work of the school by the Browns
and agreed that on Kauri it stood
second to none. But, said Mr.
Brown, "when 1 had a conference
with Mr. Knudsen regarding the
action of the board is not reappoint
ing Mrs. Brown and myself he told
mo that 'the board is a solid wall of
opposition agaiust you, you are out
of harmony with the board,"
Patterson Blows Warm
In summing up the case" for
his clients, Attorney Patterson, with
considerable heat, said that the
Browns had been given no chance;
that they had been ousted and kick
ed out f the department without a
hearing or even having been told
the nature of the charges aghinst
The school was well conduct, he
said; everybody agreed. It stood
11 ill -r y i
wen and tno is.auai people were
unanimous in favor of the retention
of his clients by the board. The
Kauai chamber of commerce, of
which he was a member had no in
t i j 1 j i . .
tercst in tne matter, expect to see
that justice was done. It was not
a case of the Browns, but one of
justice. That was why the chamber
had taken the steps it did in stand
ing by the fomer Waiinea teachers,
TWELVE 10 BECOME
EXPERTS OF C. E.
The gasoline schooner Annie
Johnson came over from Mahukona
last week with a shipment of freight
that was as important to Kauai at
the moment as were the dyes brought
by the Detilschland to the people of
the United States. That shipment
ensisted of 1)70 drums of gasoline
nnd distillate. For the second time
within a year the island was right tin
against a gasoline famine, owing,
it is said, to the difficulty of get tine
it through to Kauai. The lot of
970 drums will keep the wheels of
Kauai's autos turning for sometime
The Annie Johnson brought 700
tons of cargo, the largest item, of
course, being the gasoline and dis
tillate. She discharged quickly and
left agaih Wednesday nignt for Ma
hukona where she will take mmnr.
Old-timers will remember the
Annie Johnson as a very fleet bark-
entine which ran between San Fran
cisco and Ililo (sometimes to other
ports) back in the '90's. She io
now schooner rigged, her square
having been removed; and she has
auxiliary power which does the work
of sails when desirable.
An interesting ceremony was gone
through with at Kapaa Thursday
when twelve candidates took the ex
amination to become expert Chris
tian Endeavorers. The examina
tion was conducted by J. M. Kanea-
kua, chairman; Rev. Mr. Kaauwai
and Judge Puuki.
The course of study in which pro
fiency must be acquired before a
member of the C. E. may be offi
cially designated as an expert is
printed only in the English lan
guage and is sent out from general
headquarters in the east. It is quite
a booklet. The Kauai candidates
were thus handicapped, for few if
yesterday, attempted to hinder the any of them were able to grasp it
Work on Makaweli's "boulevard"
has progressed so far that some idea
of what it will look like can now be
gathered. The improvement reallv
starts with the houses, which have
been primpted up, and then pro
ceeds to the lawns and fringing
greenery, which have all been over
hauled. Next will come modern
sidewalks extending from the belt
road down to and around the mill,
and next to those will he grass plats
artistically laid out all the way
down on both sides. Sidewalks,
rows of trees and grass plats will
naturally take up a good deal of
space, so that the roadway is nccefc.
sarily slightly narrower than it useoV
to be; but as it is to be macadamized
in modern fashion what is lost in
quantity will be made up in quality.
When all the improvements are
completed (which will be in the
course of 'the next few months)
Makaweli will be one of the most
beautiful and attractive small towns
in the Territory.
