Kunrrliitriideul AtkhiROti Report
on NimmI of More 'IVnclirrs.
Regarding the increase in popu
lation unending school, the report
of Superintendent. Atkinson for
1902 showed that there were 18,318
in all the schools ntul "13.760 in tin
public schools. The present report
shows that there is a total of 20,017
attending all schools, of whom
14,813 are attending the public
schools and 5,204 the private
schools. "Tins means a total in
crease of 1,299 during the two years
and an increase of i',os3 for the
public schools. You may take the
rate of increase therefore at 500 per
annum for the public schools, lint
there is a. source of still greater in
crease where the opening of new
schools in various small districts
will decrease the ratio between the
teacher and the number of pupils
and therefore requires a larger
number of teachers than if we had
the school population more con
centrated. The nvcrage number of
pupils throughout the Territory to
each public f-chool teacher is thirty
seven, which is one more pupil per
teacher than was reported to the
Legislature in 1903. I his means
that in many places the teachers
are overwhelmed and, as a matter
of fact, there are schools where
teachers are taking charge of any
where from fifty-five to sixty child
ren in a room, which is certainly
more than should be required. This
question has been laid before the
Legislature time and time again,
but it never seems to be thoroughly
understood. Of course there are
small schools where the enrollment
is perhaps fourteen to twenty and
it is these schools that bring down
the average to thirty-seven pupils
to each teacher but in the more
populous districts there js no doubt
that the teacher is overworked and
one might say also in many cases
under-paid. Therefore I would
urge that the Legislature should
find means for the payment of the
teachers at the rate which I have
asked for in the schedule of ex
penses accompanying this report."
lloxcs With the President
Mike Donovan, the denn of
boxers, has been giving boxing les
sons to Theodore Roosevelt, jr., who
is being prepared at home by pri
vate tutors for entrance in Harvard
College, and is coming back to con
tinue the lessons with young Roose
velt. While here Donovan boxed
with the President. Describing
some of his bouts with the Presi
dent, he told New York reporters:
"It was the first time I had boxed
with Mr. Roosevelt since he was
governor. If anybody tells you
he's an easy mark, don't believe it.
I never saw a man pick up faster
than he in those four days.
"We boxed every afternoon
from 5:30 until nearly half-past 6 in
his study. A wrestling mat was
placed on the floor for -us, but I
found it too thick, and we used the
regular carpet. The President wore
a pair of riding trousers, a light un
dershirt and a pair of canvas shoes.
" 'Don't mind hitting me,' he
said right at the start off. 'I want
you to hit me as often as you can,
and don't mind how hard, either.'
It was no tapping, I will till you.
They were good, honest blows, of
the sort that you wouldn't run into
knowingly. We had seven-ounce
"I never saw a pleasanter man, or
one who gets more enjoyment out
of a thing. He's a fighter, and
knows how to give and take blows.
He doesn't try to knock a man out,
but he does like to know that he
has hit him.
"He kept me busy, and I was not
running to his blows either. ' Don't
get the idea that I was there to
teach him, not by any means. He
is a veteran boxer and can hold
his own with the best of them in the
clubs. I know few men who box
regularly in the athletic clubs who
can worst him.
"I have arranged to go down
several more times to box with him
and to give lessons to Theodore, jr.
I gjve lessons to young Theodore
every day. He is now a fine,
strapping young boy, seventeen
years old, and weighs 135 pounds,
I thought when I first gave him
lessons at Albany that lie would
I "ever be a strong man, but he is
I developing and will be as tall as his
1 father. He is a fighter, too, and a
' hitler. I gave lesjons to him
1 and his two cousins."

If the opinion of 'Attorney Gen
eral Andrews stands, the Super
intendent of Public Works cannot
extend tin: time within which Mr.
Philip Peck can construct the Ko
hula and llilo railroad. This in
effect, works the end of the Kohala
llilo railway enterprise. When
Mr. Peck was given n hearing be
fore the Governor not long ago, he
stated that he wanted at least until
the first of August to find out
whether he conld raise the funds
necessary to finance the scheme.
Under its charter, a forfeiture
would be worked 111 April, and
what Mr. Peck desired was a written
assurance from the Superintendent
of Public Works, if he could
show by Augusf. first tbat he could
raise the money, that the charter
would be extended for a term of
two years to build to Houotnu or
three years to build to Hakalau.
At that time Governor Carter
expicssed himself as willing to do
this, provided the Attorney General
found, upon consulting the author
itics, that legal warrant existed for-
the extension. The Attorney Gen
eral has found that no such warrant
docts exist, and if a road is built
from Hilo to Kohala, it must now
be built under the provisions of the
Dillingham franchise. The opinion
of the Attorney General is as fol
lows Honolulu, T. H., March 2, 1905.
Honorable C. S. Holloway, Super
intendent of Public Works,
Territory of Hawaii.
Dear Sir: In answer to your re
quest of February 17th, as to
whether you had the right to ex
tend the time of the franchise
granted to the Kohala and Hilo
Railway Company, beyond that
stated in the agreement between the
said company and the Minister of
the Interior on the 26th day of
June, 1899, 1 would reply as follows:
This franchise was granted dur
ing the transition period, which
allowed the Minister of the Interior
to grant franchises by and with
the consent of the Executive Coun
cil, and this franchise in question
was so granted and approved by
President McKinley, under the
rulings from Washington as to such
matters. This power has now been
taken away from the Minister of the
Interior, and franchises must now
be granted by the local Legislature
with the proviso that special and
exclusive franchises must also have
the consent of Congress. It is,
therefore, out of the question for
the Superintendent of Public Works
to, at this time, amend and alter
the terms of a franchise by agree
ment with the other party thereto,
as, by doing so, he would be grant
ing a new franchise to the extent
of the amendment or alteration,
and this power has been taken from
The question remains whether
the superintendent can extend the
time of said corporation within
which it is to perform a certain act.
In this particular, the contract reads
"And if said corporation shall
not have completed the said railroad
or railroads and branch lines with-in-thrce
years from thedate of ap
proval of the location as aforesaid,
then the said Minister of the In
terior shall have the right and pri
vilege to declare forfeited the fran
chise of said company to construct
tiie sam rauroau or railroads as
aforesaid; provided, however, that
such forfeiture shall not take effect
until written notice that such for
feiture is to be enforced is served
upon the corporation; and further
provided, that nothing herein con
tained shall be construed to prevent
the said corporation from hereafter,
from time to time, locating, con
lines in said districts, subject to the
approval of the Minister of the In
terior." ThereHs no other proviso where
by the Minister of the Interior or
Territory of Hawaii is allowed to
extend the time of said corporation
in which to complete its work, ex
cept upon unforeseen contingencies
specified in the contaact, none of
which has arisen.
I understand the contention is
made, however, that this provision
ns to forlciture is optional with the
Minister of the Inerior, and that,
therefore, they have unlimited time,
within his discretion, to complete
the road and within wliiclf to do
and complete the various works set
forth. With this view, however,
I do not wholly agree. While the
terms of the contract are vaguennd
uncertain, there is ground for the
contention that the Minister of the
Interior may use his discretion ns
to whether he shall declare n for
feiture upon the failure of the com
pany to strictly comply with the
terms of its contract, on tiie other
hand, the Minister of the Interior
is acting, notfor himself, but for
the Territory of Hawaii, and I do
believe it would be right or lawful
for him to abuse the discretion ves
ted in him tinder this section by ex
tending such periods indefinitely,
or by making any new terms with
the corporation, in view of which
he ngrccs to waive said forfeiture.
There is also serious question, it
seems to me, how far, in a public
frnucliiseof this kind, the Minister
or the Interior can waive forfeiture,
in view of the fact that he no longer
has power to grant, change, or
amend such franchises.
My opinion would be that the
most you could do under this con
tract would be to inform the Kohala
and Hilo Railway Company that
you will not enforce the forfeiture
within a reasonable time after the
failure to comply with the condi
tions unless matters should develop,
wherein injury to the Territory of
Hawaii would, result by your fail
ure to declare such forfeiture. This,
it seems to me, is the limit to which
your discretion could go, and we
are straining the construction of the
franchise, in my opinion, to go as
far as this.
Yours very truly,
(Signed) L. A. ANDREWS,
"I suppose that the only thing I
can do, under the opinion of the
Attorney-General," said Superin
tendent of Public works, Holloway,
yesterday, "is to notify the Kohala-
Hilo railway people that I will not
enforce the forfeiture clause of their
franchise within a reasonable time
after their failure to comply with
the conditions, unless matters should
develop wherein injury to the Ter
ritory would result by reason of the
failure to declare such forfeiture. I
have no power to grant them any
specific time to raise money."
