The Hilo Teachers Union held their

School on last Friday, May 19th. About
sixty members and visitors were present.
Vice President Miss Ward of Olaa acted
After prayer, the roll call wasanswered
by Hawaiian proverbs nnd sayings. The
minutes of the March metting were read
and correcltd. It was moved by Win.
McCluskey and seconded by Chas. Swain
that the funds now in the hands of the
Treasurer be expended on pedagogical
works to be placed in the Hilo Free Li
brary. The motion was carritd and the
President appointed a committee to select
the works, Win. McCluskey, Miss Deyo
audC. O. Smith.
Tlic date of the next meeting was set
for October 6th, with Miss Deyo, Miss
ljaton and Miss Hapal as program com
mittee. Mr. Smith, Mrs. Wakefield nnd
Miss Amy Hill were appointed nominat
ing ci.mmittec for the next nuiiunl elec
tion of officers.
The program of the meeting was open
ed by a quartette by the Misses K. and 15.
P.waliko, Mercy Akau and Amelia Hapii.
Rev. C. V- Hill delivered a lecture on
"The GcncsisofCMliziUon." The vari
ous theories as to the time nml place of
the origin of man were sokeii of, the
speaker favoring the proposition ol Hus
tler that man was cradled in the valleys
of the F.uphratcs and Tigris nbotit six
thousand years ngo. The recent explora
tions and discoveries in this region bear
out this theory. Specimens of the volum
inous writings of the early Oriental
people were shown nnd the characters ex
plained. Philologists trace the languages
of today to a single origin, which was an
other proof advanced by the speaker.
Miss 15waliko told to n clnss of little
ones the adventures of n I.ahaiun bad Wy,
how he was scut to the laud of ghosts on
Lauai, how he outwitted nnd destroyed
them and returned to his home to be n
good boy ever nftewnrd. As the story
progressed, Miss K. Kwaliko talked with
the chalk 011 the blackboard.
Mrs. 15. II. Weslervelt gnvc a talk on
color, showing the necessity of color train
ing in the schools, and deploring its
neglect. Hy means of the color chart nnd
color disc the blending of colors was il
lustrated. Several specimens of Mrs.
Wcstcrvelt's class work were on exhibi
tion. Mr. McCluskey read a paper on Ha
waiian geography, designed to show the
advantages our Territory nffords for thf
beginning of the kindred subjects, geo
graphy and history.
After recess Mrs. Siemscu sang an Ha
waiian solo, which was followed by the
leading of nn article by Miss Ward on
education in the United States during
the Nineteenth century. She said it em
braced six epochs in which Thomas JefTcr
son, Horace Mnun, Asa Malum, Louis
Agassiz, Dr. W. T. Harris and Col. Fran
cis Parker nre the conspicuous leaders of
the thought activity characterizing each.
The distinctive characteristics of each
epoch were britlly reviewed showing the
advance of education from the founda
tion-laying of the great President educa
tor to the full evolutionary period of Par
ker, the great advocate of the "freedom
uud brotherhood of teachers." The
speaker stated that the progress of edu
cation is most encouraging ns evidenced
everywhere, but especially in New York
The program was concluded by Miss
Deyo in n review of the new course of
study, which emphasizes Kuglish studies
as indicated in the prominence given to
spelling, letter-writing, oral work, correct
forms and the proper use of language.
She said it may take n little time to over
take the Kuglish work ns laid down, on
account of its being in advance of that
of Ills old course.

Turner Huh h
After the last lelghler load of sugar
had been taken on board the Amy Turner
nbout 3:00 o'clock Wednesday afternoon,
11 scare was crcnted when the vessel was
found to be rapidly filling with water.
The Amy Turner lies In the stream near
the sunken wreck of the ill fated Mnrlha
Davis, nnd had just completed her enrgo
of sugnr for Snu Francisco. Cnpt. War-
land had every thing in rendiucss to sail
early Thursday morning, when n member
of the crew discovered the vessel was ra
pidly taking in water. Tlic pumps were
put to work nml nil night long pumped
out the w nter ns fnst ns it came into the
hold. Hy daylight n hole was discovered
nWut nu inch and 11 half in diameter in
the lower end of the slecfc of the water
closet plje, through which n steady
stream of water was flowing into the ves
sel. A plug was immediately inserted
in the pipe and covered with cement,
which effectively slopped the leakage.
At the request of Capt. W. C. Warland
of the Amy Turner, n Ward of survey
was appointed, consisting ol Capt. John
Fltrgcrald, harbor master, Capt. C. II.
Mncloon, master of the late Martha Da
vis and Cnrl Hciiricksnu, the ship's car
penter. After nu investigation of the
vessel, the Ward of survey reported no
further danger from the damaged drain
pipe and that the vessel wns perfectly sen
worthy. When the leak was discovered
the vessel was making about two feet of
water per hour, but the prompt use of
the steam pumps kept the salt vvntcr
from the sugnr, which would have been
ruined within n few hours, had not prompt
measures been taken. The Amy Turner
got away Saturday morning. The Cap
tain felt 110 further npprehcusioti from a
leak in this quarter nnd expressed him
self satisfied with the report of the board
