Mr. Homer Baxter fjprnguc, late
Principal of the Girls' High School
of Boston, has been installed as
President of Mills College for Gills
at Oakland, Cal. In his inaugui.il
addiess Mr. Sprague said some note
worthy things, including the fol
lowing: Mnrriage is not a thing to
be sought or shunned ; but one
thing is sine, a highly-educated
woman, -if inairied, will make a
home happy. Anybody can get
rich by stealing ; she must get tick,
if at all, by superior sagacity, dili
gence and economy. Excellence in
bodily graces can be secured by
thorough instruction in physiology
and hygiene ; by unceasing efforts
under wise direction to overcome
defects; by systematic and varied
sports and recreations out of doors,
and the best of light gymnastics
within doors; by some daily phy
sical employment that has an ele
ment of utility, peihaps a form of
housework; by temperance in eat
ing and drinking ; by careful obedi-'
encc to all the laws that God has
impressed upon the body ; by purity
of heart, benevolence of thought
and righteousness of life. A. Bron
son Alcott, at the age of eighty, at
tributed his sound health to his
having kept the Ten Commandments.
Intellectual perfection is to be the
leading aim: mental excellence is
attainable by all. The object is not
ambitious display ; the more educa
tion the more modesty. The value
of the study of foicign languages
depends rather upon the habit it en
genders and fixes of their obseiva
tion and careful reflections. As
combining mental discipline with the
' commonest utility, the study of the
English language and literature is un:
surpassed. A thorough understand
ing of the three great English
classics the Bible, Shakespeare and
Milton would be better than the
entire education given in nine-tenths
of the colleges. Unworthy motives
must be discountenanced. Prizes
for relative superiority ought per
haps never to be given in a girls'
school. Women wore not made to
be competitors, but helpmates of
each other as well as of men. If
such stimulus be needed, the fact
proves that the teachers arc incom
petent. It is better to be an in
different scholar than to be stimu
lated to greater learning by the solo
desire of out-doing somebody else.
The emulation so fostered would
seem to be the veiy essence of sel
fishness ; its natural outcome, deceit,
hardness, Ishmaelism. Of all the
elements of the civilization of this
century, perhaps no other has made
a progress so vast as education. But
the most salient feature of this
education has been the advance of
education of woman. In the year
1800 there was probably not an in
stitution, even in favoied New Eng
land, in which a girl could pursue
a collegiate course. Now there arc
at least 120 institutions where col
legiate courses are open to young
women on equal terms with men.
There aie 29,000 women now study
ing in colleges expressly designed
for ladies, besides 1,500 academies
for girls and an almost indefinite'
number of .normal schools for the
preparation of teachers. The lady
students here outnumber the men
two to one.
The above buminary of' Mr.
Sprague's address is partly abstract
and paitly extract, the object being
to give in a small compass not only
tho line of thought pursued but also
some of tho happy expressions used.
As there are many resident Hawaiian
families having young lady members
in that college, we have thought
that space would be well employed
in presenting a view of the new
matter mind of thu institution.
THE BOATING ASSOCIATION.
Taking everything in consideia
lion, paiticularly the fact that tho
public nio interested in tho success
of the annual regatta, there is some
thing prnispwotthy in the action of
the Myrtle Boat Club, in asking re
aduiission to the Association. Never
theless, there can bu only ono opinion
as to tho manner in which tho Asso
ciation should receive tho returning
member. The latter has proved by
its achievements the light to a lead
ing place among the aquatic bodies
of Honolulu, and in receiving it
back the Association is in honor
bound to remodel the regatta com
mittee so as to give the Myrtle Club
a voice in the management of the
event. Further, it should lcvicw its
unjustified and unjustifiable, its un
sportsmanlike and unchivalrous regu
lation transforming defeated seniors
into juniors. The only argument
we have been piescntcd with in
reply to our criticism of that regula
tion has been the petulnnt with
diawal of the regatta advertisement
from our columns. The only effect
of this childish course provided
we do not, for the public benefit,
counteract it is to deprive moat of
the English-reading people of Hono
lulu of information regarding the
regatta. In the matter of the ob
noxious regulation, most of the boat
clubs, backed b' overwhelming pub
lic sentiment, aie opposed to the
controlling spirits of the Association.
It is not yet too late for that body
to establish its regard for fair-play.

An intensely interesting discus
sion is going on in the American

of President Johnson to precipitate
a fresh struggle, immediately after
the war of the rebellion, upon the
very questions that conflict was sup
posed to have settled. Some parti
culars of the episode were given in
this paper recently. Among other
press comments, the New York Sun
attributes Johnson's vagaries to the
fact that he was a confirmed opium
LET US REASON AGAIN.
Kditok Bulletin : Tho following
article was written in answer to a
communication from D. M. C,
which was published in your issue
of Sept. 25th last, but a sudden
business call, necessitating my im
mediate departure from the king
dom for a short time, prevented my
sending it to you. Not wishing to
have my friend D. M. C. think that
I want to slight him in the least,
and believing in the soundness of
the old adage, "Better late than
never," I now on my return home
hasten, with your permission, to
pay my respects to him.
Having in my last communication
given ample and convincing proof
of the unsatisfactory working of the
prohibition laws in Iowa and which
ought to satisfy tho most sceptical
or blatant stickler for total prohibi
tion, D. M. C. to the contrary not
withstanding; and my sole purpose
being to steer my lellow-man into
the path of truth and correct under
standing, for which I feel sure the
sincere and honest portion of the
Prohibition Party will or ought to
give mo duo credit. D. M. C. thinks
it a pity that I did not give a long
list of crimes committed by persons
who were sober. I should have
dono so had I not supposed that
many of tho worst crimes recorded
on the calendars of the courts in
all countries, committed every day
and hour, could not from their very
nature havo been committed by per
sons under tho influonco of liquor.
Any observant reader will toll you
this, but those who patronize and
read only one-sided and fanatical
prints which only mention the crimes
of those who are reported to have
been under the influence of intoxi
cating drinks, and excluding nil ac
counts of malefactions committed
by professional Christians, so-called
tempcranco ngitator3 and parties
who entirely eschew the use of. in
toxicating beverages, arc misled
into a chronic belief, that heinous
offenses against law and order arc
perpetrated wholly and solely by
persons whose brains have become
deranged by the excessive use of
alcoholic spirits. Any one with tho
slightest particle of intelligence
must concede the fact, that most of
the coldblooded murders, highway
robberies, burglaries, forgeries,
bank-defalcations, swindles of all
kinds, confidence operations,
gambling steals, bogus corpora
lion thefts, the incarceration of'
sane persons in private and public
lunatic asylums for fraudulent pur
poses, etc., aro the work, not of
individuals crazed by rum, but of
'those who are clear-headedj coolr
calculating and in their sober senses,
but enough for the present on that
In D. M. C'b communication ho
shows the true metal of all Prohibi
tionists, when he endeavors to shield
and defend the unprincipled conduct
of their standard bearer St. John.
Of course he had not read in his
one-sided papers, of the rascality of
their leader, and unless it were
therein printed it must in his opinion
be untrue, and a paper printing any
thing derogatory to the hypocritical
character of their beloved chief
must of a necessity be an insignifi
cant and totally unreliable illificr.
The bold effrontery with which D. M.
C. seeks to substitute as reliable
authorities on the Temperance Ques
tion, such publications as the Chris
tian Statesman and the Union
Signal, for such widely-circulated
and universally' acknowledged lead
ing journals and guides in matters
of public welfare and interest as
Harper's Weekly and the Cincin
nati Commercial Gazette, is some
thing too absurd or ridiculous' to
merit even passing comment. Gov
orner Hoadly, in his speech before a
late Democratic Convention in Ohio,
said : "We are opposed to sumptuary
legislation, and in favor of licensing
the traffic of intoxicating liquor.
'We believe in self-control andbthat
the true remedy against the tempta
tions of unbridled liquor drinking is
to make happy homes, and that per
sonal liberty should not be destroyed
by law excepting where its exercise
is alwaj's wrong." By the way,
what were those "more than fifty
Kansas editors" doing so far out
West as Poitland, Oregon? Did
they not migrate there for the pur
pose of inhaling a little of that in
spiring air of freedom which was
denied them by the prohibitory laws
in their own State? Will D. M. C.
be pleased to kindly enlighten us on
this point? Nota Benk.
