It is t!io custom of our prison
authorities to hire out prisoners as
private setv.ints. This is no tecciit
innovation: the practice has ex
isted from time immemorial: the pre
sent superintendent is only fol
lowing in the footsteps of
predecessors. The custom is, in
our opinion, a pernicious one.
It allows too much liberty to those
whom violated law has, for the time
being, deprived of liberty. It also
furnishes opportunities and tempta
tions to escape. Whilst admitting
that all prison management should
seek the reformation of inmates, and
all prison discipline be directed to
the same object, yet the fact re
mains that broken law and offended
justice impose incarceration as a
punishment for clinic. Such imper
fect incarceration as allows as much
liberty as our system of hiring out
admits of, cannot be felt to lie a very
Bjvere punishment 113- those under
going sentence, nor operate as a
very strong deterrent to wrong-doing
in the minds of others. Severity of
punishment, is one of the best
preventives of crime, and the prison
regulations which cause ctiminals to
feel that jail is the most undesirable
of places will best serve the interests
of society. The proper use of pi ison
labor is the construction of public
works. In and around Honolulu
there is enough road-building alone
to keep every inmate of Oahu jail
fully employed for years to come,
without hiring out to private parties.
A SUDDEN DEATH.
By the Wniehu yesterday morning a
letter was received by C. Brewer &
Co, from Colonel Austin announcing
the death of Mrs. Dr. Wetmore of
Ililo. She was found dead iu her
baih-tub on Monday morning. The
funeral was to take place on Wed
nesday. Mrs. "Wetmore was an old
resident of these islands having been
here for about 34 years. She leaves
a husband, and a family of 3 chil
dren, all giown up.
EXAMINATIONS AT FORT ST. SCHOOL.
The regular annual examinations
of the above school took place yes
terday, beginning at 9 o'clock and
ending at noon. Among those who
witnessed the exercises were the
President of the Board of Educa
tion, the Hon. G. Rhodes, Inspector
Gcueiid Baldwin, the Kcv. A. Mac
kintosh, the Re. W. L. Jones, and
many parents and f Mends of the
pupils, as well as a good member of
teachers from other schools in the
All of the exercises were well con
ducted, showing as well as possible,
in an oral examination, the progress
made during the year. But to know
of the work actually done, it is
necessary to hcc the papers written
during the past two weeks. These
were on exhibition, in the different
rooms, throughout the exercises.
We saw many things of interest,
however, during a hurried visit
, through the 1001119. Among this
nothing was more worthy of atten
tion than Grtibe's Method of teach
ing Arithmetic to young children.
Wc commend this Method to the
cateful consideration of teachers of
primiTry schools in these Islands.
It is in high repute in many of the
best schools in America. Miss
Robinson's mid Miss Kinney's work
in Arithmetic also appear to good
advantage. And Principal Scott's
class in "Science" likewise merited
Space iorliids a lengthy notice 01
the woik done by each teacher thosi
who would know what kind of woik
is done in the school, should taki
the advice of Mr. Scott, and i-l
'l.c dillcient rooms not once on
examination day, but many timet
th ( ughout tlu year.
The piogramine of cxciciscs foi
the afternoon was as follows:
1. Klen.l's Aildii'ss William (lilog
2. The Xcw Church Oigan Mime
:$. Kssav A Stud Pen
4. The Moon Maiden O. Slntaro
B. Dlalnmm J May WiiterhoiiM

7. Dream of Clarence j f
8. "Which ShnP it !?....!

11. Letting the Old C it Die. Mas. Conov
All of these exercises were credit
ably performed. The singing, which
was interspersed, was especially
At the close the Inspector Gene
ral's prizes were awarded for
excellence in scholarship arid deport
ment to Oito Sintaro, Zida Cuiilia,
and Carry Gray. The distribution oi
Certificates of promotion, and biief
remarks by the piiucipal closed a
very pleasant day's work.
The Annual Exhibition and Dis
tribution of prizes was held yester
day aftirnoon in the schoolroom.
Aftei -wards the Athletic sports were
held in fie grounds.
Amo.iiist those present were Her
Ma.cBty the Queen Dowager Emma,
II. R. II. Pii.cess Kaiulani, Hon.
A. S. CL, horn, Major Wodehouse,
His Lordsh p the Bishop of Hono
lulu, and His Ex. W. M. Gibson.
The room was very neatly decor
ated with flowers and ropes of ferns
and maileand Hags, British, Hawaii
an, and American. Specimens of
the pupils' map-drawing were hung
011 the walls and seemed to us better
than at any other school yet seen
a map of the United States by D.
Norton, and one of Europe by J.
Aholo, being specially noticeable.
An excellent programme of songs
and recitations w.is produced. The
dinging was under the chaige of Mr.
Wray Taylor who accompanied on
the piano. The most noteworthy
in this department were the duet
"Ring the Merry Bells" by H.
Meek and A. Swinton Master
Meek has a particulary fine voice,
and a solo, "The cows are in the
corn" sung by G. Cooper. This last
was encoied but not repeated. The
native chorus "Na Keiki o lolani"
composed by W. Kumoliai and sung
by D. Notley, "W. Kamohai, H.
Meek, H. Liloa, II. Anahu, and S.
Akana, and D. Norton as guitarist,
was very sweet. Amongst the re
citations the best weie II. Cooper's
"Nelly Grey,". G. Harris' "Pied
Piper of Humelin," and .1. Aholo's
"Burial of Moses." The scene from
King John was also very good."
