VOTE FOR EDUCATION.
It is strange that in the new Ap
propriation Bill, brought forward by
the most extravagant Ministrj' this
Kingdom has known, the vote for
educational .purposes is cut down.
The last bill' raised some salaries,
and since its passage the pay of
many teachers has been raised. It
requires no great effert of memory
to recall the time when the Board of
" Education was destroyed by an edict
from the Cabinet and lias not now
'been reconstructed. This edict was
followed, by a considerable increase
of salary granted to many of the
board-teachers. Since then the num
ber of children of the school age has
risen considerably both by natural
increase and by immigration, and
yet the sums asked for is reduced.
We are not suggesting that any one
in the service of the fragment of
Board of Education is overpaid, far
from it, but how the efficient educa
tion of an increased number of chil
dren is to be carried -on by a de
creased vote, is one of those mys
.terious dispensations of the very
erratic sort of providence which has
of late ruled over this Kingdom, that
surpasses ordinary human ingenuity
to And out.
That the people, in their capacity
of parents or guardians arc not in
differentein thiamatter, is shown by
the articles which have appeared in
the column of the Bulletin and in
those of our contemporaries, besides
letters from correspondents, and
above all Resolutions and Petitions
brought before the Representatives.
His Majesty tho King delivered a
telling speech to the natives at Kau-
makapili the other evening, and we
suppose that the petition of Mr.
Nnlrinu "that boarding schools for
boys and girls be established through
out tho Kingdom" was the conse
quence. The vote for education as proposed
by the existing Ministry is very small
when compared with other voles, tho
civil list for instance, and there are
several petitions for exemption from
the school tax before the house, let
these things bo carefully considotccl
by our Legislators, that education is
better than imprisonment, or in
other words prevention is better than
The Board of Education is incom
plete, the Chairman of the Com
mittee on Education is unfortunately
absent, it rdmains for the Represen
tatives to do their best.
If it is true, as we think it is,
that a U. S. gold currency is better
for this country than n silver cur
rency, both because of its greater
purchasing power, ami because it
will keep exchange down and make
imported goods cost just so much
less; and if a jsilver currency serves
to keep exchange high and to place
it in the control of capitalists, why
is there such reluctance, to come out
and oppose the present condition
The reasons arc in brief these:
The capitalists who have introduced
nearly a million dollars of silver,
and hope to introduce much more
silver coin, on future Government
loans, desire, naturally enough, to
make their profits on such enter
prises. Those who arc connected in
business, or dependent on such capi
talists, are afraid to risk anything
by opposing them. Others fear that
the King will oppose any change to
a sound currency, so that any oppo
sition to silver currency would be
useless, and others again fear that
the time ma' come when they can't
pay what they owe abroad, so that
they prefer a currency which is prac
tically useless abroad, and which
they think will be more likely to
secure extension of credit. We be
lieve that all such reluctance is based
on mistaken notions.
Birds of a feather flock together.
A man cannot serve two mas
ters. The present Ministry,- and the
public good, are two very different
The ostrich is an animal who,
when pursued, conceals its head,
thinking because it cannot see that
it cannot be seen. Poor fool.
It is useless to cry peace, peace,
when there is no peace. The silver
and currency disturbance must be
settled, or property values will be
shaken to their foundation.
The Finance Committee are still
in the Interior Department. Mr. J.
O. Carter began, yesterday, to assist
the committee as an accountant.
The accounts of the Board of Immi
gration were submitted to him.
The manner in which Papa For
eign Affairs gently inclines his head
backward, and with parted lips and
patronizing smiles, nods sweet signs
of approval to speakers who need
fostering, is touchingly tender.
"Oh, how I love you."
After the manner in which a
" national" coinage has been manip
ulated and foisted on the country, it
is not strange that Representatives
look with distrust and alarm upon
an attempt to establish a "national"
bank. "A burnt child avoids the
The Attorney General's policy
seems to be to throw himself .with
all his sparkling talents in favor of
the side which he thinks ' will win.
On the opium law he waltzed one
way, on the liquor question he
turned a somersault the other. Such
glory is cheap.
Hon. S. B. Dole made a manly
and forcible argument in favor of
prohibition yesterday. He com
manded the attention of the whole
House. It was in marked contrast
to the strained jokes and buffoncry
of the Attorney General upon tho
subject, which followed.
Copies of the Report of the
President of the Board of Educa
tion finally reached the hands of
members yesterday. The great, and
good author of the report made Ida
first efforts in educating the Ha
waiians on Lanai, some years since,
when lie deceived the dear people.

to cause the election to be illegal.
Mr. Kaulukou wanted to know
why the Committee had not sum

Mr. Dole said that in the former
case the petitioners wished for wit
nesses to be summoned, if a thorough

case the Judiciaiy Committee should
be instructed to obtain witnesses.

Committee that the petition from
