THE SHIPPERS' FAULT.
The losses sustained by bannua
shippers on the last trip of the S. S.
Enterprise by reason of faulty
sped for law and order, lack of in
spiration to duty, must be dis
countenanced by teaching and
broadening the influence of the
schools. Thete can be no true
ethical training in the schools tin-
K-ss it reaches to the homes, and
where there is nn absolute lack of
parental sense of duty, the strong
hand of the law should be enforced
to bring about the desired result.
Thus only can the public schools
build up n moral fibre into the com
ing citizens of this Territory.
wrapping of the fruit, demonstrates
more than any other argument the
necessity of n careful and uuilorm
inspection of bananas before they
are permitted to leave the wharf.

or properly wrapped, and shippers
reap the fruits of their own folly
when they pack bananas in wet or
The heat and moisture from the
wet wrappers generates steam
which blackens the .skin and causes
quick decomposition of the fruit. It
is foolhardy to expect bananas
packed in this manner to arrive in
San Francisco at all, and the ship
per is out both his freight and cost
of picking. Such methods not only
prove ruinous to the shipper but
eventually kill the market for Hilo
fruit. Huyers at San Francisco
are naturally chary about purchas
ing Hilo bananas until the wrap
pers are removed, and now the
name of Hilo fairly arouses suspi
cion that all bananas bearing the
local brand are bad.
The action of the Henry Water
house Trust Co., in attempting to
reorganize the Hilo banana busi
ness on a cash basis upon delivery
at the Hilo wharf, is deserving of
the highest praise and support.
Those growers who have witnessed
the failure of individual shippers to
market their fruit, have long sought
to bring about such a condition
whereby the local planter can sell
his bananas outright for a reason
able cash price, but until the
Waterhouse Trust Co. launched
into the field, no single firm or
individual had the courage to
undertake the proposition. Growers
will make on every shipment con
signed under the new system.
Because of the lack of funds, and
the cutting out of salaries of truant
officers, the enforcement of the
compulsory school law is practically
nullified. One of the features of
the growth and development of
these Islands from primitive bar
barity to its present state of educa
tional advancement is the small per
centage of children of school age
who are unable to read and write.
There are very few children over
six years of age, living in Hawaii
where schools are accessible, not
able to read and write.
This is largely the outgrowth of
the compulsory school system com
pelling parents to keep their child
ren at school until fifteen years of
age. In this manner is the govern
ment helping to make intelligent,
patriotic and liberty-loving citizens
out of the raw material which finds
its way from every clime and
country to these islands.
The object of compulsory educa
tion is the making of character and
the teaching of text books is but a
means to this end. The prime
purpose of our common school sys
tem is the developemeut of the
youth of the country into law-abiding,
self respecting citizens.
There is a disposition in the
minds of the scholar to skip school
and slight over studies, the after
use of which he does not for.sce.
There is a constitutional disregard
for discipline and scholastic author
ity, which devolops into a lack of
respect for age and superiority of

eral and She: iff to settle the re
sponsibility of caring for the
prisoners is edifying, but when
prisoners are turned loose upon the
community, it is time to cry a halt
upon such procedure. There would
seem to be little doubt, if the Re
vised Laws meant what they appear
to read, that the Territory is cer
tainly responsible for the care and
custody of persons sentenced to the

that official but to the community.
By his strict integrity, honesty and
faithful performance of duty he has
made a record on the Island of Ha
waii of which any man might well
be proud. If by reason of cutting
off his salary by the Territory his
services are lost to the County, the
Hoard of Supereisors will make a
grave mistake in not providing an
immediate place for him.

Atkinson Makes Report nu Tobacco
On his return to Honolulu Secretary
A. L. C. Atkinson was interviewed by n
Star reporter nml gave nu export opinion
o" the tobacco experiments belli; con
ducted tit I.ouisson Brothers' Ilniuakun
'The success of the tobacco experi
merit on Hawaii is very striking," said
the Secretary. "I was surprised at it.
It demonstrates far more than I had
thought that tobacco will grow splendidly
here. All that is needed is a bit of
capital and energy and I believe there is
money in it.
"My visit to look over the public
l.iuds, was to become as familiar as possi
ble with them," he said, "in view of the
policy of being liberal in the matter of
opening them to settlers. I want to gam
all the information I can, and have
gained much by the trip."
Later Governor Carter, Secretary
Atkinson and Commissioner I'rntt had a
conference in which land matters on
various islands were discussed, with a
view to opening more desirable lauds for
settlers. Secretary Atkinson had a report
to make of his investigations of various
lands on the different islands.
Pratt has a new list of the public lands
on all islands, prepared from surveys just
completed. His office and the survey
o Tice have been working on it for several
mouths past, and the final draft of the
list was completed last week. It names
all the public lands in the Territory,
whether occupied or not. Those which
are under lease are listed, with the price
and duration of the lease. The list will
supply information for the governor's
annual report, which is soon to go to
County llrldgo Repairs.
The upper bridge across the Wuiluku
river has been closed for the past week
pending repairs to the wood work. Hoad
Supervisor Norman K. Lyman with a
gang of men has been engaged all last
week in tearing up the flooring and sills
of the Pitman Street steel bridge. The
oiigiual Intention was only to replace
the flooring, but when the-joists and sills
were exposed, it was found that many
nan entirely rotted away and were being

of all the bridges of the district and
