Is it dull sloth that bits upon this
city and impedes its industrial pro
gress? So many of the most prac
tised observers, acquainted with the
history of the community, think.
We believe, however, that there is
another chief cause for lack of
popular interest in small industries.
Most of the wage-earners living
here, who are urged to engage in
gardening and fruit-growing on their
home plots, whether their own or
rented, probably do not know how
to begin the siinplrst operations of
horticulture. As pointed out in
these columns a few days ago, there
arc no standard voiks of instruction
in tropical agiiculture to guide the
amateur in tillage of this soil agree
ably to the conditions of this climate.
Doubtless many young householders,
and old ones, too, would endeavor,
by their own labor, to add to their
means of living, and provide them
selves with a more wholesome and
toothsome dietary than the local
market affords, if they only knew
how to go to work. Is there no
means by which the required know
ledge can be made available, and
thereby a degree of force now want
ing given to recommendations of
domestic industry to the population?
Undoubtedly, if the right way is
taken, a very great deal can be ac
complished in that direction. There
is scattered over the town a very ex
tensive variety of experimental
knowledge of various kinds of soil
productions. Here there may be
found a specialist approved by
success in raising one or more pro
ducts, and another person elsewhere
is possessed of practical skill in
raising other species of food plant.
Why cannot all these various sources
of information be brought together
to fill a common reservoir of agri
cultural knowledge for the benefit of
the whole community? This should
be the work of such an organization
as the Royal Hawaiian Agricultural
Society. If it will not take up the
duty, then the proposed society
mentioned in our local news the
other day will have to do it. It has
occurrod to us that it is high time
there was an agricultural year book
got up for this country. All avail
able results of experimentation and
records of practical successes col
lected in such a work would con
stitute a good share of a science of
tropical agriculture. The writer has
privately suggested to one of those
moving in organized efforts to pro
mote diversified industry here, that
such a work as that just suggested
might be cqmbined with one of the
annuals established by different
publishers. We now publicly com
mend this idea to the attention of all
who arc taking a live interest in the
main question as well as to that of
publishers. In the t meantime there
should be more advantage taken of
the open columns of a more than will
ing local press by all who can add to
the required stock of popular in
formation upon industries suitable
to this country.
At a recent session of the fifty
eighth annual meeting of the Aineii
can Institute of Instruction at New
port, Rhode Island, a large number
of interesting papers were read upon
subjects of practical interest to edu
cators and to all supporters of the
public school system. In the course
of one of them Professor S. R.
Thompson made the following plea
for industrial education:
Industrial education supplies the
element now lacking in our system.
Education in relation to modern in
dustry is the question of the hour.
Not all intellectual training and edu
cation comes from language and
books, but education in industry,
for industry, by industry, is the new
trinity, in plaoe of the old tritium
and quadrivium and its modern modi
fications. Education in the industries
is old ; for them it is new, but it has
come to stay, and an education by
the industries, which for so long has
done its useful but unrecognized
work in happy oounliy homes, must
have its beneficent sway greatly ex
tended. If the plea foi industrial educa
tion quoted above had been utteicd
in Honolulu, it might well be rc
fencd to as the "question of the
hour." And if Professor Thompson's
utterances arc justified by facts in
Rhode Island, they are applicable
with a thousandfold more force here.
Indeed it looks, at first sight, more
like a growl than as the expression
of a real grievance to hear that there
is any felt necessity in the latitude
of Newpoit for a greater develop
ment of the industiial element than
already exists there. In Rhode
Island, as is well known, the doc
trine of diversified industries is pi ac
tually cairied out to an extent that
is almost incredible. Scarcely any
line of business or handicraft exists
in the civilized world that is not
domiciled, to a greater or less ex
tent, inthat diminutive stale. Taking
the city of Providence alone, the
censuses of 1870 and 1880 show the
increase of population, in that de
cade, to have been from G8,901 to
104,837. Skilled mechanics and
willing laborers were all but certain
of employment, every time, from
whatever pait of the earth they
came. Under these circumstances,
it is hard to sec where the professor
at the Institute of Instruction
meant to place the proposed invest
ments in industrial education. The
same facts cited with reference to
Rhode Island, arc applicable to
many other parts of the Union, but
wc confine our allusions to that
State because it is one of the near
est of states, in extent, to the island
of Oahu. The whole state contains
an area of 1,300 square miles, or
about twice the area of this, island.
The population of the slate is 270,
328, while that of Oahu is but 28,
0C8. The city of Providence alone
contains five times the population of
Honolulu. There is no doubt that
the massing of people from all quar
ters of the world in that city is
largely due to its diversified indus
tries, its multiplied divisions of
labor, nnd the numerous channels
into which its commerce flows. On
the other hand, there can be no
getting away from the fact that the
meagre population of about twenty
to the square mile that luxuriates in
this peerless climate, is the inevit
able result of its industries being
limited to a very few, the almost
total absence of labor, and to the
confinement of its commerce within
the two or three deep and narrow
ruts in which it has hitherto been
The introduction of a well ar
ranged bystcm of industrial education
in the public schools of the kingdom
will go farther towards the preserv
ation of the native race than any
other measure that can be suggested.
If there is a panacea for the numer
ous ills to which the native race is
specially liable, it may be discovered
whenever the literary education of
the people is supplemented by prac
tical lessons in the various indus
tries of civilization. Appropriations
for this purpose were proposed at
last session of the Legislature, but
wcic not made for the alleged reason
that the .financial resources of the
kingdom would not bear the expen
diture. Thcie is, however, ou a
small scale, an institution devoted to
industrial education now running in
the city, under government supervi
sion. The Reformatory School is a
twofold educational institution, in
which boys under magisterial com
mitment for juvenile offenses arc in
structed in the branches of literary
I education and in tho practice of
habits of industry. With its limited
facilities and under the disadvantage
j of having not the best material to
woikon, the success of the Refor
matory School may be accepted as a
! good criterion from which wc may
estimate the advantages of a univer
sal application of the system. It
teems to be an almost established
principle of "common law" in this
kingdom that all enterprise and all
positions of l csponsibility arc "vested
rights" of the foreign clement, nnd
that, with respect to the most im
portant industries and responsibili
ties of civilized citizenship, the
native's duty is to "touch not, taste
not, handle not." A good course
of "industrial education" ought to
be taken up, agitated and inaugu
rated forthwith. Foreigner nnd
native would alike share in its bene
ficial results. It is the kind of edu
cation the native requires to fit him
for positions and enterprises in which
he can make an independent liveli
hood. It will qualify him for going
abioad to expand his ideas, and in
spite him with a laudable ambition
to excel. Acquisitions of this kind
will make him a much more valuable
citi7en when he returns again to his
native land. There mny be some
good reasons why Hawaiian young
men and young women, skilled in
various handicrafts and of well fixed
moral principles should not be found
competing with the mechanics and
laborers of older countries, both at
home nnd abroad; but if there is
any such reason, it must lie in the
idle nnd thriftless habits of a radi
cally defective training. A crew of
native mechanics and workmen is
the only soit of ciew that can be
depended on to "stick to the ship"
of state when she gets among the
bieakcis. The political importance
of an industrial education of the
people cannot be overestimated. At
no time is the political demagogue so
liberally discounted as when he has to
face a constituency composed of in
telligence, musclo and manly inde
pendence. Every now and then a case trans
pires of sonic poor laborer, suffering
from sickness or injury, done to
death by his friends moving him
from one place to another, without
consulting a physician. Some means
should be adopted by the authorities
and employers of labor to stop this
sort of fatal kindness.
