Should llinwill Hint An Au'rlrullnrnl
Great nism in the nffuirs of men
unit nntions bring to the surface the
best i lint is in men. At the be
RiimiiiK of the Civil War, when the
Nation was in jeopardy, when the
loyal men of the Union were bend
nig every effort to win their cause
by foree of arms, the n.iti'iii's law
makers were looking ahead to the
days when war should be at an end
and peace should reign. In 1862,
during the darkest period' of that
struggle, Congtcss enacted a law
establishing Agricultural colleges
in each State and Territory of the
Union, and giving to each as yet
unborn institution a magnificent
endowment of public lands. Under
this original Morrill law there are
now' sixty-six agricultural colleges
in the United States.
The original Morrill law of 1862
was supplemented by the Hatch
Act of 1887, establishing experi
mental stations as braiichesofthe.se
land grant colleges; and, by a sec
ond Morrill Act of 1890, "for the
further endowment of agricultural
colleges" by a cumulatively nro-
gressive annual Kederal subsidy,
beginning with $15,000 in 1890
and amounting to $25,000 in 1900
and subsequent years. The Hatch
Act of 1887 and the Morrill Act of
1890 both hark back to the Land
Grant Colleges founded under the
law of 1862.
Both the agricultural college and
the agricultural experiment station
are supported from the funds de
rived from the sale of public lands,
not from funds derived by taxation,
direct or indirect.
Now, that Hawaii is a full fledg
ed Territory of the United States
the query has arisen, why cannot
Hawaii receive Irom the Federal
Government a subsidy in support
of an agricultural college? There
is no educational institution of
college grade in Hawaii. Oahu
College, the best that we have, is a
preparatory school. The question
is, as to whether the time has come
when this country can adequately
support an institution' of college
grade. There can be no doubt as
to the need of a higher institution
of learning but can Hawaii support
such an institution?
Before we can justly go to the
Federal Government and ask that
our share of the funds derived from
the sale of public laud's be granted
for the "further endowment of the
agricultural college," should we not
make due provision for this college?
The original endowment of the
mainland colleges was 10.000,000
acres of land, originally estimated
to be worth upwards of$i4,ooo,ooo.
To this have been added other land
grant funds amounting to $1441,
000; other permanent funds, $14,
445,000; farms and grounds $5,550,
000; buildings, $16,500,000; appa
ratus, $2,000,000; libraries, $1,900,
000; miscellaneous equipment, $2,
000,000, making a total permanent
value of $60,000,000. In 1899 the
agricultural colleges of the United
States were attended by 36,000
students and during that year the
Federal Government contributed
$1,740,000 and the States and Terri
tories $2,287,000. Three-fourths
of the total permanent endowment
of the colleges has been supplied by !
the States and Territories and 60
per cent of the annual running ex
penses. Hawaii has no agriculturalcollege
but would like to have one in order
to secure the $25,000 annual sub
sidy from the Federal Government.
It seems to me that if a college is
to be established the Territorial
Legislature should set aside as a
permanent endowment at least 100,
000 acres of the best agricultural
laud in the islands. The law mak
ing Federal endowments specifies
that the institution receiving this
fund must be "a college," and "a
college is neither an academy nor
training school." "An agricultu
ral college must not teach HOW to
use the plow and hoe, but WIIKN
and where to use them to best ad
The law under which we would
seek benefit specifies that in this
college "the leading object
shall be to teach such branches of
learning as are t fluted to agticul-
I lure and the mechanic nrts." It is
j the function of a training school to
I show HOW n thing is to be done,
I and of n college to teach WHY.
I The Agricultural colleges of the
I mainland demand that their malri
Iculntes shall be well educated, and
I shall haw passed through the
stage of learning how to do things.
Two-thirds of our agricultural
colleges demand that their Iresh
men shall have completed work
equal to the 8th or 9H1 grades of
the public schools. The remaining
one-third stand on the same basis
as to entrance requirements as the
If an agricultural college is estab
lished in Hawaii, it should be 0
college in actuality, and not in
name only for the sale purpose of
securing Federal endowment; it
should be established for the future
more than for the present needs of
Hawaii on a broad and liberal basis;
it should stand at the head of the
common school s stem, and should
begin on a plane a little higher
than that yet reached by any
existing institution; finally, if the
people of Hawaii are of the opinion
that now is the time to establish
such an educational institution
there is no time better than the pre
sent in which to set apart as a per
petual endowment for the cause of
a liberal education in the sciences
relating to agriculture and the
mechanic arts at least ioo.ood acres
of the public domain.
