Friday will be Arbor Day in the
public schools of the Territoiy.
This has grown to be an institution
in the nublic school system of most
of the states and territories of ilieiReneral that
mainland and will be celebrated for
the first time in Hawaii on next
The holiday should receive the
warm support of both teachers and
parents and the children participat
ing in the exercises which have
been prepared in nearly all of the
schools should be encouraged to
cultivate a taste for flowers and
plant life. Not only will the obser
vance of Arbor Day in the public
schools tend to the improvement of
school premises, many of which
have been sadly neglected in the past
but bring about a civic improve
ment and the beautifying of homes
and streets of the centers of popu
lation. An intimate acquaintance
with plants is a great modifier of
""character, and develops in the
child a love of nature and a deeper
rqspect for flowers and plants.
1 In some eastern cities, the teach
ers have designated one day of
each school year as "Flower Day,"
when are brought together an ex
hibit of flowers and plants raised
by the children of the various rooms
of a school and prizes awarded foi
the best efforts in this direction.
The exhibits include flowers and
vegetables produced from seed
bought by the children, specimen
plants raised in pots and brought
to unusual perfection by pupils, cut
flowers and potted plants for school
room decoration. Seeds, plants
and flowers raised at home are ex
hibited, properly labeled with the
pupil's name, and the various
school gardens are regarded as a
part of the exhibit. Great interest
attaches to these exhibits and
makes the work attractive to both
young and old alike.
Tun prompt selection by Gov
ernor Carter of a successor to
Superintendent oi Public Instruc
tion Davis shows that material for
so important a post is not wholly
lacking. In the withdrawal of Mr.
Davis the department loses the ser
vices of a valuable and painstaking
official, and the appointment of W.
H. Babbitt to this responsible posi
tion is an evidence of the execu
tive's perfect confidence in that
gentleman's ability. While then
has always been more or less of a
rivalry between Punahou and the
public schools at the top of which
stands the high school, Super
inteudcut Babbitt's association with
Oahu College ought in no way t
detract from his usefulness as the
head of the Department of Iuluca
tion. The public will watch with
keen interest the development of
the public schools of the Territory
under his supervision as Super
intendent, which is not entirely
without its responsibilities and
petty worries. A free hand is most
to be desired and an 'official having
the cordial support and sympathy
of the Governor which Mr. Babbitt
assuredly has, must needs have a
Japan's policy of importing for
home consumption foreign grown
rice and sending its own product
away, is about as ridiculous a con
dition as that of Hawaii shipping
all of its output of cane sugar and
using an inferior grade of beet
sugar for the breakfast table.

ECHOES OF THE PRESS.
Governor Carter is not a fool, but
when he thinks he knows how to
run nil kinds of jobs personally, he
overestimates himself hugely and
comes close to being what Harper's
Weekly called him a conceited
ass. Garden Island.
Governor Carter tells the
llilo people that one reason why
he objected to the County Act was
that it did not carry responsibility
for taxation. The remark is time
ly, becattse the impression was
he objected to the
County Act on general principles
and especially did he balk at any
uny plan which would give the lo-
jcal government control over taxes.
Governor Carter's letter to the
llilo Hoard of Trade seems to make
it clear that he has changed his
mind in regard to the method of
selecting items from the loan fund
appropriation bill to be carried out.
It was the appropriations listed
under each Island separately that
the Governor in public and private
conversations has declared were a
mere matter of bargaining among
the several Islands and were not
put in the bill on their merits. It
was these that the Governor has
now decided he will select some
Governor Carter has assumed to
set aside and ignore the enactment
of the legislature, and to substitute
his own will and pleasure. Will
President Roosevelt .stand for this?
It is safe to assume that the pub
lic will accept with greater confi
dence the interpretation of the Su
preme Court upon the validity of
the law against trading stamps
passed by the last legislature, rather
than a second hand decision of a
weekly newspaper declaring the

Plover shooting has become popular
