The Cosmopolitan Clinraoter of ftaa
Pupils In tho IhIuimIs.
'Statistics of the Public School
Department which will probably be
included in the Superintendent of
Public Instruction's report to Gov
ernor Dole, throw interesting side
lights on the personnel of the tcaoh
ers and pupils of the territory.
The total enrollment in nil schools
of the territory, piblic or private is
17,518, the public schools taking in
13,189 an advance of 6000 pupils
since a decade ago. There are 143
public schools, the female pupiU
numbering practically six thousand
to the male classes of bcvcu thous
and odd. Female teachers predom
inate largely. Out of a total of
380 276 are "school inarms." The
private schools, numbering 54,
average about the same way.
The cosmopolitan nature of the
population is well shown in Uic
eleven divisions that have to be
made. The native children of pure
Hawaiian consanguinity have
lessened somewhat in number but
those of mixed blood have, on the
other hand, increased, in all a gain
from ten years ago of some 500
children who claim Hawaiian an
cestry. The totals show 7772 pure
and part Hawaiians.
The Portuguese have almost
doubled their numbers. Japanese
children have come rapidly under
American educational methods in
the lat decade. In 1892 the Japa
nese children in the schools num
bered a scant sixty while now they
are close to two thousand. The
Chinese have also increased but in
a lesser ratio. At present there are
fourteen hundred attending.
A surprise comes with the chil
dren of the Porto Ricaus who have
been in the territory barely two
years. Six hundred of these ore
growing up under the inculcated
principles of American manliness
and independence. Americans
number 812 nearly half of whom
are in private schools. British -140,
divided about equally between pub
lic and private schools. Germans
337, with more than half taught
privately. Portuguese 41 24, nearly
three thousand attending public
schools. . Scandinavian, 74 public,
24 private. An eighth of the Jap
anese are taught in private estab
lishments. In the public schools
every teacher has an average of
about 34 pupils to take charge of
while in the private schools the
ratio is reduced to 19.
In totalling the teachers of the
entire territory under one head,
424 are females and 185 males,
making a total of 609. Of these
149 are Hawaiian and part Ha
waiian, 329 American, 56 British,
11 German, 23 Portuguese, 10
French, 15 Scandinavian, 3 Bel
gian, 5 Japanese, 6 Chinese and
two of unclassified nationalities.
There are 56 schools on Hawaii,
30 on Maui and Lanai, 9 on Molo
kai, 33 on Oahu, and 15 on Kauai
and Niihau. These figures allude
to public schools only.
Learning sewing in the public
schools are nearly six thousand on
the islands as a group; knife work
shows 536, agriculture, 5010,- lau
hala and bamboo work, 565; mat
weaving, 275; drawing, 8191; sing
ing, 8204, and manual training,
Under six years of age in the
public schools are 198 boys and 149
girls, from 6-8 years, 2385 boys and
1719 girls from 8-15,4361 and 3862,
above 15 288 and 226. In private
schools, under 6, 262 boys and 288
girls; from 6-15, 1711 and i486 and
over 15, 345 and 582.
MOIT I'ELEEVS WltATII RENEWED.
Velcnne Is Attain Ih a Violent State
St. Thomns, D. W. I., Aug. 27.
A dispatch received here from
the island of Dominica, dated yes
terday, August 26, at 6 p. in., says:
"Since 2 p. m. today (Tuesday)
prolonged noises in quick succes
sion have been heard from the
southward. There is every indica
tion that Mont Pelee is violently
Efforts made to communicate by
cable direct with the island of Mar
tinique have proved unsuccessful.
The French Cable Company has no
cable working'to that point and the
company's officials are unable to
say when communication with
Martinique will be resumed.
Chicago, August 27. "Mont
Pelee may assume a Krakatoa type
of volcano, and in that caso there
may be another great disaster in
the West Indies," said Louis H.
Aymc, United States Consul nt
Guadalupo. He was the first rep
resentative of this government to
arrive at Martinique when that
island was devastated by Mont
Pelee's eruption May 8. Aymc
held in his hand a dispatch stating
that Pelee was again in a state of
violent eruption. What he fears
most is that a tidal wave may follow
the continued eruptions, and a tidal
wave, it should be remarked, is
likely to affect not only Martinique,
but the entire chain of islands.
"Krakatoa is the name of a vol
cano which blow the top of a moun
tain off several years ago," said
Ayme in explanation of his state
ment. "The report was heard
2400 miles away. It began to
erupt in February and continued to
mutter for months after. This
may prove to be the case in Martin
ique. Mont Pelee may blow the
top off the mountain and then there
will be serious trouble."

Washington, Aug. 23. All pre
vious high water marks in the

States Government were surpassed

ceeds by more than a million dol
lars the record of two months ago.

UOimS FEAR KAFFIRS.
Say tho Peace or South Africa Is
Vienna, Aug. 23. The Frem
denblatt today publishes an inter
view with an Australian who trav
eled from South Africa to England
on the steamer with the Boer gen
erals, Botha, Dewet and Delarey.
The Australian is credited with
saying that in the course of a con
versation General Botha said to
"It is probable that England has
no need to fear further trouble
from the Boers, but the civilization
of South Africa is threatened by
the Kaffirs. England armed these
savages, brave but untrustworthy
tribeR, to fight for her. Now the
war is ended and the Kaffirs have
not returned their arms, but have
retreated with them to inacoe6sible
plac in the mountains, where
they are reported to be engaged in
daily shooting exercises and prep
aration for war. Unless the En
glish authorities display the great
est energy the Kaffirs are likely to
cause great trouble."
Still After the America's Cup.
Loudon, Aug. 28. Discussing
Sir Thomas Liptcn's forthcoming
challenge for the America's cup,
which will be dispatched in Sep
tember, the Yachting World re
marks: "To give the holders of
the cup longer warning would be
to present them with additional op
portunities for preparing their de
fense." Then, confirming the
press dispatches regarding Sir
Thomas Lipton's preparations, the
Yachting World says: "When the
challenge is officially announced it
will surprise most people to find
how far forward the arrangements
The Yachting World concludes
its comment as follows: "Now
that he has entered his third year
of work for the America's cup
honors, Sir Thomas may proceed
assured that all sportsmen in Great
Britain are with him."
