Object to Married Wo num.
A grievance is finding muttered
veut among young school teachers
of local training, which has nothing
to do with the cutting of salaries.
It relates to the employment of
married women as teachers, while
many single women who have
qualified for the profession cannot
find situations. The complaint has
particular reference to married
women whose husbands are earning !
good salaries in public or private '
employment. It is said that this
very thing is strictly forbidden iu I

NO It KH 1(1. NATIONS YET.
Proposed Cut hi Salaries
Tear hers Not Felt.
Honolulu, T. H. May 12.
It was stated at the office of the
Department of Public Instruction
that the reduction of teachers' sal
aries under changes and economies
instituted by the Legislature iu
special session, had not yet brought
forth any resignations.
Upon the approach of the summer
vacation, every year there are always
a number of teachers dropping out
of the Terrilorial service. These
are generally young folks who have
come down from mainland educa
tional institutions to labor in Ha
waii's fields of knowledge awhile.
They enjoy the climate, scenery,
variety, change and recreation, then
yearn for home-folks, perhaps receive
more remunerative offers elsewhere,
or get married and leave Hawaii.
This year will doubtless see the
usual number of these tutorial exits
from Paradise, but the crcat army
of Hawaii's, children need not feel
alarmed or fear that there will not
be enough teachers to go around,
for the Territory, in its excellent
academies, turns out its own teach
ers and there arc plenty on hand.
The general policy of the depart
ment, however, is to get down here
folks to instruct who arc a little
more advanced and more experienc
ed than are young teachers just
turned out. For this reason does
the arm of the Education Board
reach out to Chicago and other
mainland cities for talent. They
come, stay awhile (some of course
remaining for long periods) aud then
go on their way rejoicing at the ex
perience gained here and the pleas
antness of having visited Hawaii.
While some mny be influenced to
leave by the cuts which take effect
in July, 110 resignations have yet
Liaoyang, May 16. The Russians
succeeded in crippling a Japanese
cruiser Tuesday in Salieuwan Hay.
A lieutenant and three jackies in a
naptha launch under cover of dark
ness were successful in reaching
the cruiser as she lay iu the bay
and exploded a hand torpedo under
her. The cruiser was not sunk,
but was badly damaged.
Seoul, May 16. The prefect of
a small town near Anju reports a
Sunday invasion by Cossacks. The
invaders seized provisions and
horses, taking money and valuables
and assaulting women. The pre
fect reports also that the Cossacks
opened the jail aud liberated the
prisoners which had been confined
I there. The greatest excitement
prevails iu the village over the out
rages. officers aud a number of Chinese
j Saturday bandits attacked the
I coal mines near Port Adams and
; drove out the officials and looted
I the place.
