WHO SHALL TEACH?
Mr. Towii'-cnd'b letter, in another
column, is suggestive of the advan
tages, and possibly of the necessity
for si new departure in educational
methods, all along the line of public
education. That the importance of
primary education has only begun
to dawn upon the promoters of
learning everywhere is sulllciently
attested by the great age and world
wide fame of such institutions as
the university of Paris, the colleges
of Oxford and Cambridge, and the
great universities of Germany, as
compared with the time when civili
zation began to provide for the in
struction of the middle and lower
classes of society. The parish
schools in Scotland, centuries ago,
and the beginning of free schools in
Now England, at later dates, may
be traced to a common origin.
"While the systems referred to led
the way in this great movement,
they have been somewhat closely
imitated by this time, in many other
countries. But there still lurks in all
tb-rcat educational systems of the
such an institution. Training col
leges, normal schools, or seminaries,
as they arc synonymously desig
nated in Eugland, the United States
and Germany, arc among the indis
pensable outfit of their systems of
public education. Without Ihciu,
their public schools would be all but
worthless. In these institutions,
the future teachers of the country
arc set to acquire the technical
knowledge peculiar to their proposed
calling. Their diplomas from these
institutions are supposed to be good
ccililicates that they know what they
have to do and also how to do it.
The geographical position of thee
islands, ought, of itself, to be a
stilllcient argument in favor of the
existence of Irniiiinu schools. The
public educational system of the
Hawaiian Islands cannot be expect
ed ever to become thoroughly na
tionalized and incorporated into the
life of the country, until it is pro
vided with the elements of self-extension
and self-perpetuation. These
elements, it has been fully demon
strated in the experience of the
three bent educated nations in the
world, are supplied only in thor
oughly equipped and ellicicnlly
maintained training schools.

found guilty of having opium in

at the quarantine station.
A young woman was charged with
larceny of some dress-making ma
terial from Mrs. Gaseoyne. Ash ford
& Ashford appeared for defendant,
who was remanded until the 10th
inst. As there would seem to bo
some misunderstanding at the back
of this case, the defendant's name
is withheld until after the trial.
Ah Sam, Ah Ha and Pong Nam
were charged with larceny of ducks,

number of ducks from different
ranches became mixed in the late
storm, and defendants retain in all

world, a sort of undercurrent of the
old prevailing idea that primary edu
cation is of subordinate importance,
and can bo carried on by workers of
little or no experience in the leach
ing profession, while all the enthu
siasm and ability that can be enlisted
in the service must be located in the
higher grades. To any person who
has devoted attention to the matter,
our correspondent's remarks will at
once commend themselves as self-
evident truths. In acquiring know
ledge, the mind, whether it be
encased in a Hawaiian or a Cauca
sian skull, undergoes certain pro
cesses and perforins certain acts.
"What these processes and these acts
are can be understood and appre
ciated only by those who have
studied them with close attention,
and from the premises of well estab
lished scientific facts. And who
ever professes to direct these phases
of the mind without knowing what
they arc, may safely be made stand
aside as an educational quack. To
know the operations of the mind,
and the processes by which it as
similates and develops thought is
the first qualification of the teaching
practitioner, just as in the training
of medical men, Anatomy and
Physiology, the sciences treating of
the structure of the body and its
functions in a state of health, stand
at the head of their list of studies.
And the second point of qualifica
tion is a knowledge of the methods
by which the powers of the learner's -
mind are brought into vigorous and
healthy action. This second quali
fication is clearly of greater practi
cal value, but is far more dillleult
to acquire than the first. The one
qualification, according to Stowc's
' training system, is embodied iu a
knowledge of the science, tho other
consists in proficiency In the art of
education. That an able scholar
must, of necessity, be an able
teacher, is a theory long since ex
ploded, although, at the same time,
it is a well recognized fact that to
be an able teacher, one must be a
thorough scholar in tho branches of
education ho professes to teach. Mr.
Townsend thinks, in connection with
these facts, that the tiuio has come,
iu this Kingdom, when a training
school should bo established. With
repoct to that question, the wonder
is how the educational machinery
)rh been able to run so long without
TRAILING FOR TEACHINC.
Lonon Btu.i.r.Tix: Nothing is
causing more thought in educational
circles of the present than primary
teaching. The small percentage of
children who pass through all the
primary grades, and enter upon tlie
grammar course, emphasizes the im
portance of this branch of the
teacher's work. And the great im
portance of early training in the
formation of character is coming to
have a more practical recognition of
late years. The persistent assertion
of the great importance of the first
few years of training, and the
founding of the kindergarten to
meet the demand for such training,
created an era in the world's educa
tional history, and secured lasting
fame to the pioneers of this import
ant movement. Due appreciation
of primary work has given the
Quiney schools a wide celebrity.
The time is past when intelligent
people who have to do with schools
think that an educated person is
necessarily prepared for teaching
and that any teacher can conduct a
This'being the case, it will be seen
that there arc somewhat more than
one hundred places to be filled by
the government alone, with trained
teachers. Yet there is no training
school of any kind in the kingdom.
Has not the time come when the
requirement is sufficient to justify,
nay, demand, the founding of such
an institution'!1 Tho stress of the
times justifies all necessary economy ;
but is it economy to send to America
for a part of the teachers of this
Kingdom, and entrust the remainder
of the work to those who have made
no special preparation for the duties
of their profession? Besides, it is
possible to have something iu this
lino at a trilling expense.
There are places in America where
two or three rooms are placed under
the care of a thoroughly qualified
and well paid teacher and a number
of unpaid apprentices or pupil
teachers. One of these, which,
from personal knowledge, J can say
is doing good work in the prepara
tion of teachers, results in an actual
saving, since the whole cost of sup
porting the school is less than the
aggregate salaries of the three paid
teachers who formerly taught in tho
rooms now occupied by the training
class. This may not be the best
plan. But it would certainly lie
like tho proverbial half loaf. This
exact plan may not be practicable
here. But some modification of it
