Superintendent of Public Instruc
tion Babbitt displayed his courage
in facing n Hilo mass meeting
last Thursday upon the question of
a high school site, n subject which
has ever been a bone of con
tention, since the passage of the act
creating the Hilo high school. He
showed himself equal Jo situation
and although subjected to a rigid
catechism regarding the motives of
the administration in reopening a
question, which had previously
been settled to the npparant satis
faction of all, he answered every
question honestly and well. An
official with less tact 01 consider
ation of the proprieties of the occa
sion, might have precipitated a
factional fight which would have
'resulted in a disagreement over a
matter upon which all should
This is the first time Hilo has
been honored with a visit from the
head of the Department of Educa
tion, and after a few days spent in
in visiting the various schools of
the county, Superintendent Babbitt
has acquired an intimate knowledge
of the needs of the service on Ha
waii and is able to determine upon
the best methods for its improve
ment. He is convinced that public
school teachers are the poorest paid
of all government employees. In
a department where brains should
be at a premium, he finds condi
tions such that instructors of the
youth of this Territory are required
to suffer privations and hardships
of travel, which no other state or
territory would permit to continue
The visit of Superintendent
Babbitt can only be attended with
beneficent results to the depart
ment and to the public as well,
and although no other matter than
the final settlement of the high
school site is accomplished, the
people will feel grateful for this
display of administrative interest.

Mass Mkktixgs are not without
their purpose, and while there is
always more or less of an element
of peace disturbers who hang around
the edge of a crowd ready to break
up such a meeting, the level heads
usially predbminate. It is such
acts of rowdism on the part of those
individuals who do not usually at
tend public meetings, except when
trouble is brewing that give color
to the suggestion of packed assem
blies ready to break up a meeting
at all hazards than meet failure in
their plans. The old "town meet
ing" can be made the instrument
of much good, wherever every in
dividual is permitted to speak his
opinion freely without interruption,
but the very purpose of such a
gathering can be nullified by the
presence of disturbing factors who
seek only the furtherance of their
"The MeiiN (or Poets."
The breakfast party became
fashionable in the early decades of
the last century, Samuel Rogers
being one of the principal hosts.
Round his table gathered all the
wits and celebrities of the day. At
his house on St. James place Byron
and Moore first came together
"over a mess of potatoes and vine
gar." It was in his dining room
that Erskine told the story of his
first brief and Grattan that of his
last duel, while the iron duke des
cribed Waterloo as a "battle of
gtants. Rogers asked his people,
it was currently reported, by way
of probation for dinner; but his
breakfast parties were more social
than his dinners, which, compara
tively speaking, were affairs of. ne
cessity or form. His invitation
notes were models of penmanship
and conciseness. "Will you break
fast with me tomorrow? S. R.,"
was the pithy invitation to a cele
brated wit. "Won't I?" was the
congenial response. He was fond
of quoting Roussau's profession of
tin gout fin pour les dejeuners the
time of the day when we are quiet
est and talk most at our ease. Gre

It now remains to be seen whe
ther Governor Carter will be bound
by any ill-advised acts of Acting
Governor Atkinson in pledging the
Territory to reserve government
laud for a federal site. The Se
cretary's position as the "good
fellow" of the administration, of
course, was not intended to extend
to the gubernatarial chair, even
though it has been the fond hope of
the Governor that Jack might be
come available timber when it came
to the appointment of his own successor.
Digging up the past is an un
fortunate pastime of some people
and when such records can be
fruitful of no common good, a'judi
cious silence is subservive of the
best interests of all concerned.
