No just view of the County Bill
could be made which failed to re
mark with due appreciation the
comprehensive results of the com
mission's labors. Every right
minded man hopes to do his share
'of the work of the world toward
making it better. If others do this
for him. he has left the duty' of
appreciation of superior, faithful,
service. Given the personnel of
the Commission, a careful, conser
vative, comprehensive report was a
foregone conclusion, and the result
in most essential respects is deserv
ing of commendation nnd approval.
Briefly the County Bill proposes
to make possible n county govern
ment for the Territory through a
central committee of five supervisors
elected at large and known as the
Board of Supervisors: a corps of
elective officers, and sub officials
and boards appointed by the central
committee. The elective officials
are a sheriff, a county clerk, an
auditor, a recorder, a tax-collector,
a district attorney, nu assessor, a
treasurer, a coroner, a surveyor
and the members of the Board of
The bill provides for county own
ership of public water works and
lighting works; for construction
and maintenance of necessary public
buildings, roads and bridges; for
incurring a bonded indebtedness
equal to three per cent of the tax
able property of the county by pub
lic vote; for the payment of such
bonded indebtedness by the crea
tion of a sinking fund supplied by
annual tax sufficient to meet the
objects of this provision.
The bill fixes the official bond
and duties of the elective officers;
provides for the continued Terri
torial control of Department of
Education, and makes elaborate
application from tax assessment
The establishment of county
boundaries is certainly wisely made.
The legitimate excuse for strJall
counties is densely populated sec
tion, with their flourishing towns.
When we have these conditions in
Hawaii the counties may be sub
divided. It is easily apparent that
the paraphernalia of the govern
ment and necessarily the tax rate
is lessened by having one set of
county officials in the island of
Oahu in place of five as advocated
by the man who favors the establish
ment of five counties on this island.
The increased expense of such a
multiplication of counties, entirely
defeats the hope of financial benefit
In the outlining of the powers,
duties and numbers of the elective
officers, the Board of Supervisors
and other officials lies of course
much of the strength of the bill.
There are too many officers.
When we remember that the
Act of Parliament for municipalities
in Great Britain provides for but
two salaried officers, three auditors
and a central committee unsalaried,
it is not easy to discover why these
sparsely settled, counties out in the
Pacific should have such a flux of
public business multiplication of
salaried officials makes county or
ganization the burden which it is
so often claimed to be, and is di
rectly opposed to the interests of
The bill would gain if amended
to read in Section 8, Chapter 12:
The officers of the county are a
sheriff, who shall also be coroner
and surveyor, a county clerk who
shall also be recorder, assessor and
tax collector; a district attorney,
who shall also be treasurer.
Section 415 provides that the
management of all public schools
of the Territory of Hawaii shall be
and remain with the board and
officers as provided by the Civil
Laws of 1897.
There is probably no question
that the great defect of the present
school system in IIawaii is its lack
Few teachers actually perpetuate,
long enough to be well-remembered,
a record which invites scrutiny
without an impelling stimulus from
without. The keeper of th; pri
vate school finds this stimulus in
the desire to hold her patronage,
the teacher in the public school in
America, the best public school in ,
the world, finds his impelling .sti
mulus in the requirements of Ins,
Board of Education, the officers of
which, superintendent nnd assis
tant, he is in actual contact with,
through a system of regular reports
of work actually done and pupils'
standings. No child is promoted
from one grade to another without
the personal endorsement of the
superintendent on his card. This
gives vitality to the school system,
makes the teacher directly account
able to the head of the department
for daily work.
The sole medium of contact with
the Board of Education in Hawaii,
the teacher in outlying islands finds
in the annual visit of that quasi
educator, the inspector.
The Board docs not require in
dividual report frun county schools
and has practically no knowledge
of the work done by a given teach
er save through the vast absorption
of data in one hnlfday of the school
year by the indefatigable inspector.
If the teacher can come up to his
standards once a year her position
is secure. The patron of the public
school in Hawaii, who pays the
taxes which maintain the school
and for whose child the public
school exists, is not in it. To a
patron's modest request that his
child be taught spelling a teacher
in an outlying section has replied
"It is agi iust the law." To his
entreaty that he be taught arith
metic the same teacher retorts
"There is no time!"
The parent complains at the
board rooms and is referred to the
inspector, who assures him that his
child should be taught so and so,
but there is only the complainant's
wofd that he isn't. Complainant
must circulate a petition to produce
knowledge which it is the direct
business of the Department to be in
possession of. The Board is thus
nandicapped in its normal purpose
which it evidences in many ways
to give outlying sections good
schools, by lack of efficient organiz
ation and representation, and the
vitality of modern methods.
The supervision of public induc
tion in America is vested in a state
superintendent and such other of
ficers as the Legislature shall direct.
The state board decides on general
broad lines of scheme of education
for the state, textbooks and general
The county superintendent ad
ministers and supervises the schools
in his districts with school board
and clerk in each district.
There may very properly con
tinue to be a Territorial Board of
Public Instruction in Hawaii.
The argument that because dis
tricts and counties on the other is
lauds are not ready to undertake
the management of their schools,
there must be no change ol system,
is met by the continuance of the
Territorial Board with revised
powers. While the local dissatis
faction is offered relief in the dis
trict representation on the county
If Section 415, Chapter 67 of the
County Bill should be entirely re
cast,. provide for a County Board
of Public Instruction, the-County
Bill would be strengthened.
The County Bill should provide
for a County Board of Public In
struction, to be appointed by the
Governor, made up of one member
from each district, with general
provisions for duties, powers and
meetings of the same.
The County Bill should provide
for a County Superintendent of
Public Instruction appointed by the
Board or elected by the people,
one of whose duties shall be to visit
every school in the county once in
There is no more important feat
ure of the County Hill, than the
educational section, and the outly
ing districts submit that it is an in
justice to perpetuate a system
which is demonstrated not to be a
good working system. There is a
saying current in America "That
the public school is as good as the
people demand that it shall be."
Hence it is that the public schools
in America are rightly regarded as
actiteriou of the intelligence of a
community. This is the value of
vitality to a school system.
That it is now possible for teach
ers in outlying sections to frustrate
and defeat the purpose of the Ter
ritorial Board is a self-evident pro
position, the personnel of high pur
pose and integrity of the Board not
withstanding. There is no greater card than
good public schools next to health
If we wish to invite the home
maker of the better class in America
to permanent residence in Hawaii
we must give him a public school
as attractive as the one he is leaving.
