At the International Conference
on Education, recently held at the
Health Exhibition, in London, the
inaugural address wn delivered by
Lord Hcay, President of the Con
ference, lie discussed, what he
called, some of the burning ques
tions of the day in matters of edu
cation, lie said that the develop
ment of the powers of observation,
to satisfy an ever-expanding curio
sity, is at the bottom of every vs
" tcm of rational education; that in
i primary education this truth is more
ami more recognized, and drawing,
as well as elementary science and
manual work, arc being put in their
proper places; that Belgium is mov
ing vigorously in that ditection,
following, with reference to manual
fy work, Sweden, where the School of
Domestic Industry might well claim
1 attention; that two French Min-
sicrs oi r-iiucauoii, ;u. naruoux
' and 51. Ferry, have given their ver-
V diet in favor of the extreme import
ance of drawing; that Sweden has
also contributed to gymnastics that
'clllcicncy of training which is so im
portant in school hygienics; and
that the monopoly of the three IPs
reading, writing, and arithmetic
is doomed, and the enthronement of
the three D's drawing, drill, and
adroitness approaching. In plead
ing for the substitution of rational
for mechanical methods, Lord llcav
,'said he simply desired to rouse
those inquisitive tendencies, which
in many cases arc now deadened, to
make the primary school, not the
early grave of individuality, but an
attractive spot, where the produc
tive use of leisure, as well as of the
hours devoted to woi k, coupled with
the surroundings of fruits and
,tlowcrs, should give pleasure to the
1imr .mil irii'lu ii'lin -f ..itiifiiif if . .....1
,wj J ... ,. ' tn llll,V Ik, lM,
in order thereto, he would make
agricultural education general and
no longer a luxury.
The foregoing points in Lotd
8 address sccui to us to merit
careful consideration, not only
of our Boaid of Education, but of
the teaching fraternity generally on
i islands. From the Board's last
ilnl reuort to the Lemsl.ilurc it
m... .'. ........ .. . . . ,
nppcirs uiai preliminary steps nave
Ircady been taken in the same
(direction, under the Board's admin-
.trnlion, at Lahainaluna Seminary
the Heforniiilory School. The
sanio report also contains accounts
of similar steps in some private
schools in the Kingdom". Yet what '
has hitherto been done can scarcely
be considered moio than mi initial
move in the right direction, for too
much attention is still given to the
mechanical routine of mere text-hook
instruction : it should be supple- :
tnented by systematic advances on
the basis of careful plans. The bulk
of educational work in this country ,
has to be done for the bcncfll of j
natic llawaiians, and next in im
portance to their instiuction in the
use of the English language comes
their training in labor and in the
domestic arts and manufactures.
The lising generation here, as in
other countries, arc too prone to
despise labor of all kinds, and try
chiefly to fit themselves for some
position in which they will not be
obliged to woik or to acquire any
great amount of skill. This tendency
should, us far as possible, be cor
rected by their education and the
way in which it is imparted ; and if
Lord Hcay's hints are expanded to
their logical conclusions, and fol
lowed out systematically and thor
oughly, it will greatly conduce to
bring about an improvement in this
THE BRITISH SCIENTISTS-NO. 3.
Wc have not yet exhausted those
portions of Lotd Uayleigh's opening
address which arc callable of popular
elucidation. Upon tho subject of
acoustics he said it had been proved
that when propel precautions arc
taken wc are unable to tell whether
a pui o tone (as from a vibrating
tuning folk held over a suitable
resonator) conies to us from the
front or the rear; but it is easy and
instinctive to discover whence almost
any other sort of sound, from a
clap of the hands to the clearest
vowel sound, comes. There is very
little difference between the tospec
tivc degrees of loudness with which
a sound strikes the car turned townid
it and the one turned from it. The
President warned students of (science
agaiust elevating phrases above
things, in the style of the doctor in
" Le Alidade Ininginaiie," who ex
plains the fact that opium .sends one
to sleep by its soporilic virtue. It
was necessary, however, that scien
tific discoveries .should be set forth
in books, or they would be lost. In
making oneself acquainted with what
has been done in any subject, he
siid, it is good policy to consult first
the writers of highest general repu
tation. Although in scientific matters
we should aim at independent judg
ment, and not rely too much upon
authority, it i cumins true that a
'good deal must often be taken upon
trust. Loid Haylcigh touched upon
a question that is very much dis
cussed at the present time the
utility of so much space being given
to the dead languages in a liberal
education. Such an authority is
woi thy of being fully quoted, and
llicrcfoic his observations on this
subject arc given entire:
"To the thorough-going advocates
of scientific education it appears
strange, and almost monstrous, that
the dead languages should hold the
place they do in gcncial education;
and it can hardly be denied that
their supremacy is the result of
routine rather than of aigunicnt. I
do not, myself, take up the extreme
position. I doubt whether an ex
clusively scientific training would be
satisfactory, and where there is
nlonty of time and a literary aptitude
I can believe that Latin and Greek
I may make a good foundation. But
it is useless to discuss the question
upon tho supposition that a majority
of boys attain either to a knowledge
of the languages, or to an apprecia
tion of the writings of the nncicnt
authors. The contrary is notoriously
the truth, and the defenders of the
existing system usually take their
stand lqioii the excellence of its dis
cipline. From this point of view
thcicis .something to he said. The
laziest boy must exert himself a
little in puzzling out a sentence
with grammar and dictionary, while
instruction and supervision arc easy
to organize and not too costly. But
when the case is stated plainly few
will agree that we can alibi d so
entirely to disregard results. In
after life tho intellectual energies arc
usunlly engrossed with business, and
no further opportunity is found for
attacking tho difllcultics which block
tho gateways of knowledge. Mathe
matics, especially, if not learned
young, are likely to remain unlearn
ed. I will not further insist unon
the cducalionnl importance of mathe
matics and science, because with
respect to them I shall probably ho
supposed to bo prejudiced. Hut of
modern languages I am ignorant
enough to give value to my advocacy.
I believe Hint French and German, '
If propeily 'taught, which 1 admit '
they rarely nro at present, would go
far to replace Latin and Greek fiom
a disciplinary point of view, while
the actual value of the acquisition
would, in tho majority of cases, he
incomparably greater. In half the
time usually devoted, without suc
cess, to the classical languages most
boys could acquire a really service- i
able knowledge of French and Ger
man. History, and thu sciious
study of English litcinturc, now t
shamefully neglected, would also
find a place in such a scheme. '
Inclosing, Lord Haylcigh referred
to the popular impression that
science tended to materialism, which
was strengthened by the writings of
men speaking in the name of
science. lie said : "It is true that
among scientific men, as in other
classes, crude views are to be met
with as to the deeper things of
nature; but that the life-long views
of .Now ton, of Faraday, and of
Maxwell, arc inconsistent with the
scientific habit of mind is surely a
proposition which I need not pause
to refute." However, he did not
desire to have too much stress laid
upon the opinions of even such dis
tinguished workers as those. He
did not think that the scientific
worker had a claim, superior to that
of other educated men, to assume
the attitude of a prophet. "In his
heart he knows," said he, "that
underneath the theories that he con
structs there lie contradictions which
lie cannot reconcile. The higher
mysteries of being, if penetrable at
all by human intellect, require other
weapons than those of calculation
and experiment. Without encroach
ing upon grounds appertaining to
the theologian and the philosopher,
the domain of natural science is
surely broad enough to satisfy the
wildest ambition of its devotee."
"Naples has no sewers and the
cholera germinates in the aceumu
latyd filth of centuries." So reads
a paragraph in an exchange, and it
conveys an ominous warning to Ho
iiolulu. Some say there is no danger
of cholera here; but, even if not,
there is enough sickness going light
along to prove that our sanitary
status is low. Again, it is said that
sewers are impracticable here, but
there is no scientific demonstration
to that effect. If the site is not
adapted to a sewerage system, then
why is not some other system of
keeping the city clean being sought?
In giving the substance "of the
leintiiks of the President of the Bri
tish Association for the Advancement
of Science, upon the utilization of
water power for the purposes of elec
tric lighting, wc suggested that Ho
nolulu had sufllcicnt water power,
conveniently to hand, to generate
electricity for lighting the city.
Since that article appeared wc have
seen a statement in an American
paper, that the water power of the
Ningaia If alls is being utilized in
Buffalo, New York, twenty-two miles
distant. The power is transmitted
over the telephone wires, and the
telephones of the city arc all run in
the evening by its use. Our wealthy
citizens might combino to bear the
cost of an experiment with a watcr
whccl at Knpenn Falls, Niiiianu Val
ley, and a dynamo of several lights'
capacity. "With such easily-accessible
water-power wc believe Honolulu
could be lighted with electricity
cheaper than with gas. The con
ductors for a general system of
electric lighting could be laid under
ground here with greater facility
than in most American cities, al
though there is possibly room in our
firmament for a few more cables and
The Planters' Monthly for Octo
ber contains a great variety of
matter interesting to planters and
agriculturists. Prominence is espe
cially given to information regard
ing the diffusion process for extract
ing the sweetness of the cane. The
Hon. II. A. Widcinanii has started
I a subscription list to raise money
i for getting a diffusion plant from
j Germany, for which about $10,000
will be required. To all appearance
the sound of grinding will soon be
low in the land, hut this, instead of
a symptom of senility, will signify
I a renowal of youth to the sugar in
I dustry. Upon the subject of for
I cstry, to which liberal space is
given, Mr. S. 11. Dole contributes
an account of forest cultivation be
gun on the Llhuc Plantation, Kauai,
making somo practical observations
upon the selection of trees and the
method adopted. Mr. Jaeger gives
interesting information regarding
the kola nut. showing it to he a very
desirable article of cultivation here.
The United States Consul at Sierra
Leone sent about 80 pounds of these
nuts to Mi. Hastings, of Ulupala
kua, and the latter had given them
to Mr. Jaeger to plant. Among
other properties of the kola nut, it
is said to not only arrest the pro
gress of intoxication after a person
hns drunk to excess, but destroy the
appetite for strong drink.
Thii expressions of opinion upon
modern s educational methods, by
Lords Haylcigh and Itcay, incorpor
ated in our leading articles to-day,
form a valuable symposium for the
consideration of our educationists.

Anour four o'clock- this morning,
the mate of the bark Forest Queen,
docked near Wilder's Steamship
Co.'s wharf, discovered fire in the
cabin. The captain and sailors were
soon aroused and commenced to throw
water on it wilhliitckctsi' Watchman
Sayers, of the Inter-Island Steam
Navigation Co., gave the alarm of
fire through the telephone. The Fire
Department turned out, China Co.
being the first on the spot, and soon
afterwards the fire was extinguished.
The steamer Lchua, which was close
to the Forest Queen, was let loose,
also the Kilauca IIou. The fire,
which is supposed to be incendiary,
commenced in the pantry, and was
confined to the cabin, very little
damnge being done, beyond the
wood workjbadly charred. The bark
is laden with lumber, and the
damage is covered by insurance.
The British gunboat Wasp was
wrecked off Tory Island, on the
northwest coast of Ireland, on Sept.
23rd, and fifty-two persons, includ
ing all the ofllcers, were drowned.
Six persons only were saved, by
clinging to the wreckage.
A tribute to canned provisions
has been paid by Brevet Major-General
Hawkins in the American
Grocer. He says army posts through
out the United States have been
supplied with canned meats, fruit,
vegetables and preserves for nearly
twenty years, but a case of poison
ing therefrom had never been re
ported. A Congressional committee is visit
ing the Pacific Coast, partly to en
quire into the facilities there for
building steel gunboats and armed
vessels to increase the navy. Marc
Island, Vallejo, struck the membcis
favorably as a site for such works.
