Roport of tlie Examining Committee of
To -he Tr.i'-;ry-s of Oahh Colleoe :Your
Conimittee apoT-ted on the Examining lard,
beg leave to s:te that, in so far as they were able,
in a two day'.- oral examination to see, the disci
pline and pr.iies of the students were in the
main, most sar if:'.ctory. We may say, however,
in this connection, that we believe no board of
examiners, however competent they may be, are as
capable of judging of the progress and attainments
of students as their instructors.
Nothing can do this except a wcll conducted
; written examination. Such au examination, with
questions covering the ground, passed over during
the year, either published, or to which access may
be had by the patrons and friends of the College
would do far more in our opinion to give a correct
; knowledge of the status of the College than the
'Oral examinations are known by all examining
.boards to be notoriously incompetent to give
i anything like the comparative standing of scholars.
" Some may get easy questions, and answer them
glibly, while others may get difficult ones and not
answer them at all and yet be the far better
scholars. Then the very fact of teaehera knowing
the ordeal is coming at the end of every year,
, causes them to spend a month or more in what is
known as " cramming." A knowledge of all this
has caused school committees and teachers in all
the most advanced centers of learning to abandon
, in a great measure, this oral system.
In the mechanical routine and discipline, with
out which no institution can give the best results
aimed at, Oahu College ranks deservedly high.
: The importance of thorough discipline, maintained
by urbanity and kindness, yet with firmness and
dignity, cannot be too highly estimated.
We aw pleased to report that in the branches of
study pursue.!, there seemed to be readiness of
answer, and familiarity with the subject, on the
part of the pupils. In the higher classes in history
and mental philosophy, the students recited uu
derstandingly. and appeared not by any means
; exhausted, but to possess a reserve of power after
We only wonder that any real solid results have
been obtained in chemistry and physics, when we
think of the apparatus available for illustration.
It would be as rational to expect good work from
a farm-hand without tools, as to expect to bee
go d results from any instructor in these branches,
if he have not the apparatus with which to accom
plish those results.
We have seldom seen students more ready,
quicker at catching the meaning of the original,
or readier in translating, than Mr. Pratt's students
in the classics. This fact is the more worthy of
mention, wheu we consider that this gentleman
teaches from the very rudiments of arithmetic
throagh Homer in the Greek. It will be a decided
f-teo in the right direction, when the upper and
lower departments of the-College are separated ;
and we hear with great satisfaction that the
Trustees have decided so to do. This change
will be most beneficial to both departments. It
will give the overworked instructors of the College
proper, more time to devote to a more congenial
work ; and it will enable the' teachers who have
charge of the primary school to organize more
thoroughly, aud to prepare better qualified caudi.
dates for admission into the higher school. It will
also enable the College to raise the standard of
scholarship by raising its standard of admission.
We cannot but feel the importance in this connec
tion to point out the fact, that we believe the
caue of education in the Hawaiian Islands would
be greatly enhanced, could it be arranged and
understood that Oahu College undertook
to give and did give what, in the United
States would be called a good High School educa
tion : that it prepared the Hawaiian youth to enter
any college at home, in any one of three depart
ments, and that all who enter its portals must
pursue one or the other of the three courses.
Those who do not wish a classical course could
take either the scientific or literary one ; and then,
though they never see a college, they are well
equipped in au i dncational point of view, for life's
responsibilities. If this would be understood, and
that the schools in Honolulu prepared pupils
thoroughly, to a point where they could enter the
hih sch.iol course, and no further, we believe
education in Honolulu would receive an impetus,
and attain a vigor, hitherto unknown.
This indicated change would give the teachers,
iu the so called public schools in Honolulu more
time to do more ample work by them, not having
to devote a large portion of their time to four or
five students in a partial high school course, and
doing no work thoroughly. It would give, also, all
students who would go to Oahu College, all the
advantages of a systematized course of instruction,
after a giod primary and grammar school drill.
The pupils of the school, so far as we noticed,
showed fair attainments in mathematics : and in
the higher classes, taught by Miss Winter, ex
celled : especially one class in Conic Sections. It
is unfortunate that the College should lose this
p tins-taking and highly-gifted teacher.
Miss Koyce's class in physiology stood the shots
of two physicians, and two laymen, in this very
interesting study, and came off damaged by none ;
and this evidently hard-working teacher, has
accomplished such satisfactory results without
the assistance of the cheap and splendid physiolo
gicrtl charts, now so easily obtained. It shows
how readily children take to any of the natural
The lower clas-s in history seemed well up in the
ordinarv list of dates, battles, etc. It is a
question whether the overloading of the
child's mind with the imjjtienenta of history does
not weaken, rather than strengthen the mind.
1 Lis process of teaching history, the world over,
ought to be changed.
We were pleased to observe some efforts in
grammar to teach by u.-v, rather than by rule;
though it is difficult everywhere to change the old
order of things.
It is astonishing what results can be obtained
by a well systematized course in the use of lan
guage, if begun in the lowest, and continued
through the highest grades of school.
Although, we have no doubt that the elements of
Knglish Literature have been taught during the
vear. w e saw no evidence of it in the examinations:
omitted, no doubt, from the want of time. Cer
tainlv no voung man nor woman should be gradu
ated from' Oahu College, without a knowledge of
the richness of their mother tongue, and without
knowing just where to find its richest gems of
Around the wall-, were to be noticed some very
good specimens of drawing. Yet we think a dif
terent system, of perspective drawing and from
objects, more satisfactory and useful.
We can most heartilv congratulate those inter
ested i:t the educational advantages enjoyed at
Oahu College, in having an accomplished teacher
of music such as Mrs. Haniord has proved. Hex
pupils appeared well in both vocal and instru
mental n.jsic. Her abilities combined with those
of President Jones, afford excellent advantages to
the pupils of the institution.
The eic'cise of the graduating class, at Fort
Street Church, were very creditable, in most re
spects, to the institution." The thought and mat
ter of the orations and essays wereof a high order,
if. perhaps. little defective in the manner of de
hverv. We cannot help but think that all who
L,-.ve"a::e:.ded these exercises, recognise the work
done by the body of the instructors, aud the
general good l-havior of the students.

After a year of legal quibbles and judicial
technicalities, after a farcical trial unknown iu
its extravagant license to any previous legal
regime; after sensational fulminations and sacri
legious bulletins, such as no jail ever emitted,
and no person was ever allowed to publish be
fore Guiteau mounted his pedestal in history,
the assassin of President Garfield has expiated
his crime ou the scaffold. Yestsrday aftemn
at 12 3 o'clock the drop fell, the d' -
and America breathed a breath of isfa.
aud relief that its disgrace existed -o longer. !
During his lat night Guiteaa was restless,
bleeping i.ot longer than twenty minutes on a
stretch. Towards morning he IM asleep from
sheer exhaustion. He rose a few minutes after
; 5 o'clock, breakfasted heartily and ordered his
i dinner at eleTeu o'clock. His spiritual adviser.
Dr. Hicks citme in at 8 and Guiteau asked him
i to go out and see that the scaffold was ail right.
As the f ore u." ton wore on. his nervousness in
creased and he took a bath, made a copy of his
poem Simplicity" and of his "Praver on the
j Scj.rToI.1" for Dr. Hicks to hold fr L:m while he
read it. His sister, Mrs. Scoviiie, who had said
j that she would not appear, appeared at the en
j trance and demanded admittance to the execu-
tion, which was refused. Without the jail there
I was a tremendous throng aud the occasion
; seemed like a festal dav with the various booths
which had been erected to catch the patronage
of the multitude. th cries of the vendors and
; the jostling and the swaviusr of tha c rear crowd
! which found iu inspecting the gray wails of the
i jail something of uuusuat interest l-oiu of the
I tragedy which was slowly proceeding, hidden
! from their new within. " When Guiteau was
finally brought from his cell he mounted the
; scaffold with his arms pmioued. showing only
! slight traces of nervousness. After a prayer by
; Dr. Hieks, Guiteau read futir Verses froni Mat
j thew, and then read in a loud tone an arraign
j ineLit of the American people and President Ar-
thur aud a justification of himself which he
! called his last prayer. Then he began chanting
! in a sad, doleful fashion some babbling verss
! I am going to the Lordy
I am so glad
I am going : the Lordy
I am '. f.laj.
It ran through five verses and at the end, the
cap was placed over his head aud the noose ud
! justed, an2 just as Guiteau was pinging, glory"
; glory," the trap was sprung and he shot down
! through, his neck beiug broken. His body was
; interred in the jail for feur of theft, the brain
j being turned over to the medical men for micro
' soopic examination.
Bi. LONti's BOUY.
The last sad news that Set al! doubt concern
ing l.- I.oug's fate for ever at rest came on the
lith, iu the shape of a cabled letter from the
Delta, describing the finding oi the entire party
j dead in the snow. They were iu two places,
j 500 and 1,000 yards from the wreck of the s. ow.
j Melville was closely following the track of the
' party when i e came upon a rifle barrel on four
i sticks. Underneath this, in eight feet of snow,
two bodies were found. MeUilte continued a
short distance farther up the bank, when he
espied a camp kettle, and in going towards it
l almost stumbled over the hands of lie Long which
; were otic-king out of the snow. Here the bodies of
I De Long aud Ambler were found about four feet
apart with the l-dy of Ah Sam at their feet.
All the others were found together, a short dis
tance away. De Long's diary is one of the sad
dest docunif nts in history. Its very simplicity
and tht feeble detail oi intense hardship and
undescribable sutleriugs are mutely and w..nd r
, fully eloquent. It appears from it that Lricksou
died first on the Cth of October, Alexy died on
; the 17th, like him of cold and exhaustion. lie
was the hunter of the party. Knack, who slept
between De Long and Ambler, died on the 20th.
Lee died at noon on the t: 1 st , and Collins aud
Ambler, too weak to move the body, simply
covered it up. Meison died on the 2th in the
morning and Dressl er on the evening of the
sume day. The journal ends abruptly on the
30th and that day is believed to have been the
gallant captain's last on earth. James Gordon
Bennett has donated to Mrs. De Long $o0,000
in Government Bonds.
THE KOlXlER's CT.EW
has returned here safe and sound with the ex
ception of master Putnam, a brilliant young of
ficer who was carried out to sea on an ice float
w ithout provisions or means of help, and perish
ed miserably. His death is particularly regret
ted as he was a most promising young officer,
the idol of a fond and widowed mother and the
intended husband of a most estimable young
lady. The circumstances which attended his
departure were also unfortunate. Just before
the Tlodgers sailed it was found necessary to re
place master W. F. Halsey, he having been
drinking hard in an evident endeavor to get out
of the place he had volunteered to fill. Berry
got a brief allowance of time, sent up to Putnam's
house at 2 o'clock iu the morning asking if he
were still desirous of going as he had before said
and received an aftiiiuative reply. Putnam made
hasty preparations, and some hurried farewells,
and sailed that afternoon. The last heaid of
Berry, he was at a native settlement some 700
miles from the scene of the liodgeis disaster.
He was hunting the De Long party by sledges,
having with him one companion and a boy.
THE FESTIVE CYCLONE.
'We had a slight shock of earthquake on Tues
day morning, and were glad to meet 'it, since it
reminded us forcibly of our blessings. As au
Iowa man remarked, You can gimme all the
airthquakes between now and 1900, but deliver
me from one cyclone." The State of Illinois
was visited on the 10th nit., with the most re
markable and disastrous cyclone iu the history
of the country. The loss of human life, and the
damage to crops and buildings, w as something
as horrible s it was unprecedented. It swept
a path ha'.f a mile wide by twenty-live long, and
pickiug up houses, and human beings with equal
ease in its tenable swirl, dashed them into un
recogniz.ability, many yards from their original

In some places, where the houses were without
cellars, absolutely nothing remained on the spot
to tell of the home that had been. The ground
was eft as bare as a floor. Whole trains were

The local sensatiou which has caused inoat
talk of lute is the foundering of the Escambia.
This steamer loaded with wheat and coal for St.
Vincent. Portugal; left the harbor on the l&th,
and steamed out to the Heads. As she was cross
ing the bar she was observed from shore to keel
over on her side and then to settle down in the
water and disappear. Many hours afterward
Captain Purvis, the mate, the engineer and the
steward, l. nded on the Cliff Houe beach iu a
state of extreme exhaustion. Of the twenty-five
men composing the crew nothing has been
heard, they having disappeared when the vessel
did. A Consular Court ot Inu'.iiry has be-u held
by H.U.M.'s Consul, William Lane Booker, but
it has resulted in nothing. Nobody appears to
have been to blame, the vessel appears to have
ben properly loaded, and why she should take
it into her head in fair weather, a hu'ht wind
an ! a moderate sea to capsize and go down, no
body appears to be able to understand. How
ever that may be. Captain Purvis" coat of white
wash is thick and ample. The Escambia was of
2.010 burthen, and caics here from HoDg-koi.g,
via Victoria with Chinese. She was loaded by
Dresbach, and fully insured.
The great debiis case which has unsettled the
State so long has been finally decided in favor
of the farmers, the min- rs being compelled to
take care of their debris. A horrible accident
occurred on the road between Santa Cruz and
Big Trees ou the 2od, a coach of young people
from San Francisco turned over a 2i foot chri".
killing Eva Hussey. Iv.i Cod-ry. daughter of
our City and County Attorney tieorge Scott, son
of ex-supervisor Sc-tt and Ceha Clark. Ben
Burling was seriously injured, and the others
also hurt, though not s.-ri -u-ly. An amateur
driver caused the trouble and was. of course, un
hurt. The Democracy have held their Stat
Convention at San Jose and nominated General
George Stoneman for Governor, and Barclay

hulks, and the steamer, after fumigation, will be
