J. CASTLE RIDGWAY,
F. A. Richmond, principal of the new Hilo High School, arrived on
Wednesday from Honolulu, to look over the ground preparatory to the
organization of the new high school created by the last legislature. He
met Miss Deyo supervising principal, and together they went over the
situation aud discussed organization plans. The greatest difficulty en
countered is the selection of temporary quarters for the high school stu
dents until the erection of the high school building which was also pro
vided for by the last legislature. The construction of the new building
will be delayed owing to the inability of the Board of Education to se
cure a suitable ana available site. 1 lie Masonic lot on waianucaue
street mid abutting the Union School premises in the rear is sought by
Board for school purposes, but a difficulty arises in deciding a satisfac
tory exchange of government land elsewhere for the Masonic property.
This matter will be taken up next week when Superintendent Holloway
Referring to the plans of the organization of the high school, Mr.
Richmond said to u Tribune representative: "It is the desire of the
Board of Education that the work of organization be commenced with
out delay and not wait until the completion of a high school building.
I am informed by Miss Deyo, supervising principal, that there will be
an entering class of seventeen, most of whom have had n preliminary
course in high school work. These pupils will form the freshmen class
of the high school and, as they progress, classes will be promoted to the
high school from the Eighth Grammar grade.
"Of course, we will not be able to launch nt once into all of the de
partments of high school work, but we will rather build up as we go
along, adding to the high school course as occasion seems to require. I
am especially anxious to inaugurate a commercial department, where
stenography, typewriting, bookkeeping, etc., may be taught, but none
of the present teaching force available are prepared for instructing in
these studies. I have outlined only generally a course of study to begin
with, which of course will be subject to charge. The first class will be
given: (1) what is known as "first year Latin," to prepare the students
to read Ccusar; (2) English, comprehending correct composition, rather
than criticism; (3) History Ancient Greek and Roman; (4) Physical
Geography; (5) Algebra, through quadratics, and (6), the study of
some language, either French or German. Five studies arc, perhaps, all
that can be satisfactorily taught at the beginning, and the "selection of
Ancient History or Physical Geography will be optional. We will not
be able to branch out into physics, chemistry, music and drawing until
"I shall be assisted by Miss Potter and Mr. C. O. Smith, both of
whom, as I understand it, have created a nucleus for a high school, and
whose cooperation in starting the new high school will prove very valu
able to me. My purpose is to build up a high school whose students
on graduating can qualify for entrance into any one of the larger colleges.
This is the standard of all modern high school, and we shall sfrive to
makerthe Hilo High School of as high order ot merit. The course will
be four years, the studies during the latter two years being largely elec
tive. I shall hope to have a larger entering class next year, but with
our limited resources at hand, we will have some difficulty in taking
care of the seventeen students whom I understand arc ready now for
high school work. No definite arrangements have beeu made regarding
temporary quarters. The present Union School building is congested
now, aud it may be necessary to seek temporary quarters elsewhere for
the high school."
Negotiations For Peace Suspended.
Paris, August 24. It is reported that the Russian council has decided
by a small majority, in favor of peace with Japan.
Portsmouth, August 23. President Roosevelt has suggested that
Russia purchase to Saghalien, the amount agreed upon partly compen
sating Japan for the expenses of the war. The Japanese envoys are
favorable and the prospects of peace are brighter.
London, August 23. Peace is possible on the basis of Russia paying
an indemnity under the guise of recompense to Japan for maintaining
prisoners; also by purchasing the northern half of Saghalien, Japan on
her side abandoning her claims for the interned ships and for the limi
tation of Russian naval forces in the East.
Portsmouth, August 23. Two sessions of the peace conference were
held here today when the protocols were signed.
The conference adjourned until Saturday. There is a possibility that
favorable consideration will be given President Roosevelt's compromise
suggestion regarding the Russian purchase of Saghalien island.
Portsmouth, Aug. 24. Japan demands twelve hundred million yen
($600,000,000), as the purchase price of the northern half of Saghalien
Island. Russia refuses to pay. She contends that the payment of the
indemnity is impossible in whatever disguise it is presented. Russia is
willing, however, to pay for the maintenance of the prisoners. The
Commissioners have adjourned until Saturday. The outlook for peace,
is not hopeful.
St. Petersburg, Russia, August 24. Count Lamsdorff authorizes the
statement that Russia will not pay Japan an indemnity nor cede its ter
ritory. St. Petersburg, Russia, Aug. 25. The Foreign Office in denying M.
Lamsdoff's interview, declares that Russia will not pay an indemnity to
Tokio, Japan, Aug. 25. Nothing has occurred at Portsmouth to
change the attitude of Japan.
Commits Suicide in Honolulu.
Honolulu, August 25. The body of John Gibb of Honokaa was
found in a lagoon of Kapiolani Park yesterday afternoon. The dead
man's hat and clothes were found in a pile on the bank, and as the re
mains were partly decomposed it is supposed Gibb drowned himself sev
eral days before. He has been an inmate of Miss Warland's sanitarium,
and the recent death of his wife seems to have preyed upon his mind.
About six months ago, Mr. Gibb married a young lady from New Zea
land and within three mouths his wife died, leaving him broken hearted,
it is alleged. His recent disappearance caused a police investigation
with the above result of the discovery of his body. J
His life was insured Tor $1,000, which in a note addressed to his land
lady, he desired to be used iu decorating his own and his wife's grave.
He left four brothers surviving him, of whom James Gibb is manager at
Paauhau Sugar Plantation Co., George Gibb, manager at Olowalu
Sugar Co., Maui, Peter Gibb, overseer at the Hilo Sugar Co., and Wil
liam Gibb, formerly of Kohala. The deceased was well known in Hilo,
having worked us au overseer on plantations in the vicinity aud along
the Hamakua coast.

Puualuu, Kau, Aug. 28. The home of Mrs. Robt. T. Forrest pre
sented a picture of loveliness Sunday afternoon, when Miss Abbie K.
Kekaula was united in marriage to Charles K. Maguire, Auditor for the
