Otherwise we look forward for the

CARE IN EDUCATION.
Lyman Ahbott in The Outlook says:
"The South is convinced that the
two races must not be educated to
gether in the same schools. Appar
ently the Northern teachers work
ing in the South entertain the same
opinion. With very rare exceptions,
they educate their children while
young in their own homes, and as
soon as the children reach a suitable
age send them North to white schools
for their education. In this the
Southern conviction and the Northern
practice are both founded on a sound
principle. On this principle mission
aries in pagan lands have generally
acted, sending as early as practicable
their children to America to school
and college. Education is not all fur
nished by teachers and text-books.
More potent than both combined in
influence upon the character is school
companionship. Whatever the future
may have in store for us, at present
the children of Negro parents are gen
erally not such as exert an elevating
influence upon white companions.
Slavery would not be the evil thing
which now practically all Americans
believe it to have been if the children
of slave parents were the best com
panions for the children of an always
The above has significant implica
tions for us here in the education of
WHAT ABOUT SCHOOL SURVEY?
Some months ago there was more
or less talk of a school survey which
was to be undertaken some time in
the near future.
We would respectfully inquire
whether there is still any chance of
this promise being redeemed, or was
it only a politic sop to pacify an in
sistent public for the time being.
HOI K E AT WAIMEA.
There was a monster Sunday School
Holke at Waimea on Christmas Day
in which the Sunday Schools all the
way from Koloa to Kekaha partici
pated. There was some very excel
lent singing such as only Hawalians
can do, and a good deal of friendly
competition between the different
schools participating. Not only the
childr'Mi enjoyed it but the grown
folks as well.
