adopted resolutions farorlng an in
crease in teachers' salaries. Following
are the resolutions:
Whereas teachers' salaries are In
sufficient to meet the rising cost of liv
Whereas many teachers are quitting
the profession because of Its Insuffi
cient remuneration, and
Whereas teachers, as well as other
people, should have the right to expect
a little more than a bare living wage,
Whereas former revislone in the sal
ary schedule have not taken the above
into consideratlou, and have been in
sufficient to keep pace with the rising
price of necessities-
Be it therefore resolved:
That the Maui Teachers' Association
through Its appointed committee, ap
prove a general increase in teachers'
salaries of not less than 25 per cent,
and that said increase apply to all
teachers alike, whether Supervising
Principals, Principals or Assistant
Teachers, whether they are teachers in
elementary or secondary schools. -
Be it fureher resolved that copies of
this resolution be sent to all Island
newspapers, for publication, as well as
to he Department of Public Instruct
ion, President of the Senate, Speaker
of the House of Represents tlves, all
Maui Senators, all Maui Representa
tives, Maui Chamber of Commerce,
President of the Women's Club and

Kauai and the Centennial
One Hundred Years Ago

were naturally very much inter
ested in all they saw, especially
the domestic arrangements. The
beds in particular, awakened
great interest, and they beged to
be allowed the special favor of try
ing them ; which being granted,
each lordly royal visitor stretched
himself at full length, and in such
comfortable repose, that it was
with difficulty they could be pre
vailed on to arise and go farther,
In the school room they were
shown the simple appliances of
education, aud Kaumu-alii, who
could read English a little, spelled
out with some difficuulty and
much delight the card, "Thou God
-.Waimea A Hundred Years Ago,
Two or three years later Mr,
Bingham aud his wife went to
Kauui to make a somewhat extend
ed visit and hearten the lonely
missionaries there, and Mr. Bing
ham, in his "History of the Mis
siou," gives a description of the
station with some detail as well as
a very interesting wood-cut of
Waimea village, which is quite
4-eeoguizable and was evidently
made with a good deal of care. It
was evidently taken from about
where the bridge now is, looking
out and across the river. It shows
a very considerable village of
grass houses clustered under fine
cocoanut trees, showing that in
this single respect at any rate, a
hundred years hasn't added to the
charm of Waimea.
The visitors came from Hono
lulu in a trading vessel, making
the trip comfortably in 20 hours,
and landing in a small boat, on the
crest of a wave, which landed them
on the sand beach apparently
about where the present wharf is.
They walked through the village
to a point somewhat mauka of the
bridge, where they were ferried
across in a cauoe, and then made
their way to the mission home ma
kai, where they were most cord
The Waimea valley contained
about 400 habitations, including
those on the sea shore, aud was
evidently in a high state of culti
vation, with taro for the staple
crop, interspersed with breadfruit,
cocoanuts, kou, kukui, bananas,
sugar cane, etc.
