Tut' i.iiMiiinl report of the Pres'f
ilvtil if the Hoard of Education
(Hon. (,'. II. Bishop) to the Legisla
tive Assembly of 1882, is an exhaus
tive statement of the transactions of
the Hoaiil throughout the Kingdom,
dining the past two years, making si
pamphlet of some foity-one printed
pages. The est refill reader of tliis
repot t will gather facts enough to
prove that the Government eduea
tioinil .tem of these Islands is
thorough, progressive rind well
.looked after. The Standing Com-
Wjjiiittee on Education of the Assem
bly Iiave also made si pretty lengthy
report Imsed on that of the Presi
dent of the Board, in which they
make some noteworthy remarks and
migg'-siions. Theie are 201 school;,
altogether in the Islands, Li 1 of
which sire termed Government Com
mon Schools and which are. taught in
the Hawaiian language only. Then
there are 2(1 Government Select
Schools and 11 Independent Schools,
which are taught in English. The
committee complain with some
dcgicc of aspeitty (hat the teachers
in the common or purely Hawaiian
bch'iols, are, almost without excep
tion, poorly qualified lor their posi
tions, and that those schools arc
now far below the .standard of pro
ficiency in all icspcots to which they
luid generally obtained in past years.
The committee attribute this to the
iudolcnce sind apathy of the native
teachers. But it is apparent that
they have not gone deep enough for
the cause of this evident decadence
of the native Hawaiian schools. It
will be found to lie in the fact that
there arc now no high schools in the
country for the training of young
llawaiians for the teacher's profes
sion. Formerly Lahainaluna was
the seminary fiom which graduated
the teachers of the cominou schools,
but tor the past four yesirs Lalialnu
luna Seminary has been carried on
in the English language, to the titter
exclusion of the Hsiwaiian. From
the Ililo Boys' Boarding School also
in former years came some of the
really excellent teachers for which
the common schools were noted, but
the Hawaiian language has been
v banished from the Ililo School also.
' So that thcie aro absolutely no
nchooN extant in the country where
h . a young Hawaiian can bo pieparcd
i; for the vocation of a teacher in his
w own language.
1 This should not be. We do not
L' luppoie for a moment that the Edu
L cational authorities contemplate any
abandonment of the native language
a. a medium of instruction for the
1 masses, however much they may
'r r favor tliu popular oesire lor an in
crease of English schools wherever
practicable. The mother tongue of
a nation cannot be legislated nor yet
educated out of existence, so long
as there remains even a handful of
that nation. The Hawaiian, more or
less mixed with English, will con
tinue to be spoken, written and read
long after the pure blood Hawaiian
people are reduced to a handful.
And whilo wc have between three
and four thousand native children in
the Government schools, it will be
but justice to them to devise some
-TiKJiis for piepaiing competent
teachers in the Hawaiian language.

Euik, (Pa.,) July 2d. A strange
crank passed through here yester
day, who professed to be on si divine
mission to Washington, to execute
the command of God by avenging
Guiteau's murder, as he terms it.
He resembles Guitcau in personal
appearance, and professes to bo a
distant relative. He said he had
never taken much stock in Gtuteau
until the night before he was hang
ed, when God appeared to him in a
vision, and commanded him to go to
Washington to avenge Guiteau's.
murder. As to the manner in which
this is to be effected he is in doubt,
as God promised to reveal it to him
upon his arrival-in Washington. Ho
refuses to tell his name, or where he
came from, but he had a ticket from
Chicago to New York. He uttered
terrible threats against Arthur aud
