A NORMAL SCHOOL.
Probably the most notable of
recent advances in the educational
work of this Kingdom is to be found
in the largely increased number of
schools in which the English lan
guage is taught. A very few years
-ago there was only about a half
dozen schools in the entire country
' , tthat attempted to impart an English
V education to Hawaiian children: now
ttlicy arc to bo seen scattered all over
h- - the islands. This advance has cor-
itainly been in the true); of popular
.sentiment. Native Hawaiian? fully
recognize that they are at serious

without a knowledge of English,
and for this reason Hawaiian parents
exhibit a strong desire to have their
cliildicn trained in its use. Hut the
entire juvenile population is not yet

Cs n ", . i .i . .i !
i Education report shows that there t
arc now over two thousand Hawaiian
children not in English school?. To
accommodate these will require a
still greater increase of school facili
ties and sixty oi seventy additional
teachers. How arc these teachers
to be supplied? Many, if not most, i
of those now employed in existing j
schools -were brought here from
abroad, and for the simple reason i
that sufficient numbers were not
procurable at home. IStit is there I
11113 sufficient reason why all the
teachers required for our public j
schools cannot bo produced right I
here on the islands, in the not very
distant future? Competent observers
?w -say the material is here, only it j
i -lacks the necessary training. If so, 1
$ what is needed is a Normal School I
rf "for the training of willing candidates 1
ior u pioicbsiuu in wiiicu iiauirc lias
already adapted them. Such an
, institution would be of incalculable !
."benefit to the nation. The first ad
- vantage would be to the candidates !
themselves, giving nativu Hawaiians I
the opportunity of qualifying for an 1
important profession which is nt
present mostly filled by foreigners.
Next, the whole community would
feel the beneficial influence of the
rising generation being in charge of
rf teachers thoroughly qualified for
..their work. The faculty of this
Normal School should consist of
L teachers possessing the guarantee of
p' fitness in liuving graduated in similar
I.' institutions elsewhere. Its nronci
location would bo in Honolulu, be-

flrstbe made jiopulnr, that is, it
musl be made iiltrnctivc to students
ambitious of learning the teacher's
profession. This can probably be
done by a guarantee of permanent
positions to successful graduates,
subject, of course, to the usual j
chances of n teacher's life, and by '
giving them precedence of others of '
equal attainment1), in questions of
appointment and promotion. It j
seems to us that the subject is
deserving of caieful consideration
by the Board of Education, and if it
be found practicable, to establish
Mich an institution, in it the Hawa
iian race will receive nn inestimable
boon and the Hawaiian Kingdom nn
THE BRITISH SCIENTISTS NO. 5.
The proceedings of tho Geography
section of the Hrilish Association for
the Advancement of Science were
opeucd by the president of that sec
tion with a review of recent explora
tions. Geography and geology he
showed were more intimately con
nected than was generally known.
Dr. Halm bud enumerated ninety-six
more or less extensive tracts of land,
on the sea coast alone, known to be
rising or sinking. Mr. 1?. A. Pea
cock has given evidence that tho is
land of Jersey bad no existence in
the time of Ptolemy, and was pro
bably not cut off from the. mainland
of Prance until the fourth or fifth
century. Xordenskjold found the
remains of whales, evidently killed
by the early Dutch Ushers, on the
elevated terraces of Martin's Island.
Professor Hall's recent conclusion
that the land between Suez and the
Hitter lakon has risen since the Exo
dus thrown fresh light on the Mosaic
account of that groat event; and, to
go further south, the Indian survey
had demonstrated that it was almost
certain the mean sea level at Madras
is a foot higher than it was sixty
years ago. So gently had tho Island
of Hcrinuda subsided that great
hangings of stalnctito, unbroken,
may bo found dipping into the sea,
or, at all events, into salt water pools
standing at the same level, and they
had no reason to suppose the sinking
to have stopped. The president rc
fened to Canada's having within its
; limits two spots of a physical In
terest not surpassed by any others
I on the globe, viz : the pole of mag-
l nctic attraction, commonly called the
I magnetic pole, and the focus of
greatest magnetic force ; also often
but incorrectly called a pole. The
j first was visited by Hoss in 1805,
I and again by others. The utmost
interest attached to the question
whether the magnetic pole had
shifted its position in these llftv

a ting the danger lightly, it was pro-
bably approachable overland, with
out the cost of an Arctic expedition.
The second has never been visited at
all, although Dr. 1. Hell, in hia ex
ploration of Lake Nipigon, was
within 200 miles of it. He referred
to the progress made on the canal
works at Panama, saying that in
March last the excavations were !,
,r90,022 cubic metres, being 015,8.11
metres per month. We quote the
remainder of the report of the presi
dent's speech in full:
In Africa Mr. James Thomson has
explored an unknown country about
.Mount Kilimanjaro and .Mount ICcnla,
continuing his route to Lako Xyan.a,
Mr. II. II. Johnston has also made an
Investigation into tho fauna and flora of
Ktllmanjaio, of which details will be
given in section D. Through the
rapid progress of the religion of Mo
hammed among the African races of I ho
northern equatorial zone, native tribes,
hltheito without moral or political
cohesion, arc being knit together In the
Western Soudan, the Upper Niger and
the Gambia, with a rapidity winch en
dangers tho peaceful advance of Euro

that this movement will in llmo reach

dence ot the fanaticism It is capable of
Inspiring, not to perceive here .1 moral
element which may greatly affect white
settlements and lliUsIonarv enterprise
in Central Africa hereafter." Reference
was made to the recent discoveries of
Stanley on tho Upper Congo, and to the
teeming life of these equatorial regions.

any improved tiickcry, trot it out;
