A letter ,was read from thu Rev.

gretting his inability to be present,
ami promising to be with the friends
at least in spirit. The necessity for
an answer to tlic letter was obviated
by thu pleasing information that the

J, MUSIC IX :CIIOOI.5.
This 'question was opened by an
able paper on the subject by band
Mr. Atwatcr observed that it is
his custom to have musical exercises
every morning; and on Friday
afternoon, the time is devoted to
music. Thu Board of Education
had assisted by paying half the
price of an organ. The balance
had been realized from proceeds of
a conceit, and he had found
musical exercises to be very inspir
ing and useful.
Mr. II. H. Townsend said he had
taken a great deal of interest in the
introduction of musical exorcises,
and had arranged for 15 minutes of
such exercises in every department
of his school. llu taught music
himself by note, using the tonic
sol fa notation as preliminary ex
ercise for the learning of the 01 di
nary staff notation. He relied for
the most part, in the first stages, on
the capacity of thu pupils to learn
by thu ear. Any person who will
give the subject a fair trial will be
surprised to find how few pupils fail
to learn music. lie agreed with
Mr. Berger in giving due promi
nence to rote singing, especially
Mr. Berger said that, in Germany,
no notes are learned in the common
schools. Note music is taiyrlif fo
the select schools. Hp 1 proved
J1V0 .ruvantages of teaching music
by ear in the schools in Honolulu,
lie thought the Board of Education
should be asked to provide one book
to be used in all the schools of the
Kingdom. Singing, he held, was
for after life as well as for school
days. And how is it to be made to
answer the purpose without learn
ing the songs taught. in the schools?
The discusgiojn was further yuried,
""offTiyTklcssrs. "AtwatcF "XiRCJbVSStm.
Rev. C JM. 1 lytic roajl a short
paper on the .Marking System from
the -Yale College Courier, in which
the whole system was ridiculed and
condemned in scathing terms.
Mrs. J. M. "Whitney read a paper
on the propriety of introducing
physiology and hygiene into the
public schools, and especially with
reference to the effects of alcoholic
and narcotic stimulants; and, on be
half of the Woman's Christian Tem
perance Union, asked the conven
tion to join with the Union in
petitioning the Board of Education
for the introduction of standard
text books on these subjects.
Mr. Scott was in favor of intro
ducing some work on the subject,
but he held strong bcntiments in
opposition to any work of Steele's.
He was prejudiced against Steele's
system of leaching ail about any
science "in fourteen weeks." He
was highly in favor of something of
the kind being done, but Jie could
not subscribe to tho use of the par
ticular text books recommended by
the W. C. T. U. lie said thu attain
able is often lost by aiming at the
Mr. Olcsou supported tho theory
of inculcating principles of total
abstinence in the minds of young
children. Ho had come from within
a stone's throw of Neal Dow's
house, and 'ho had opportunities of
knowing something about the anti
alcohol campaign. With respect to
Steele's works, ho approved of some
of them: others ho thought were
poor stock. While on the subject
of school book, ho thought tho timo
had tiomo for us to consider tho duty
of facing tho necessity of providing
school books specially atlapted to
the wants of tho Hawaiian Kingdom.
Professor Mcrritt said ho huld the
doctrine of total abstinence in its
most radical form, and while ho
could not endorse tho larger work,
he would certainly wish to see tho
two smaller books recommended by
tho W. C. T. U. iu the hands of
every clillil lu tlie ttoiIcL
Kcv, Dr. Ilydo read tho following
report from tho Committee on Reso
lutions: Whereas, The attention of this
Association has been called to tho
facts in regard to the government
common schools of the Kingdom,
that is, schools in Hawaiian taught
by Ilnwaiians, number, according
to tho report of 188-1, 115 schools,
with 111) teachers and 2811 pupils,
as compared with the 4-1 select
schools with their 100 teachers in
English and (481) pupils; and to
the reports of increasing non-attendance
in the outer districts, the
inelllciency of Hawaiian teachers,
and the lamentable demoralization
of Hawaiian children of school age
growing up without suitable instruc
tion; And Whereas, The multiplication
and increasing elllcieney of schools
taught iu English is a mailer of
groat congratulation in view of the
dillioullios to hu overcome, the want
of suitable dwellings for teachers,
the almost utter lack of congenial
society, the changing character of
the population, the variety of lan
guages spoken, the absence of any
inducement to well qualified and
experienced teachers to engage in
such rough and elementary work ;
And Whereas, The pure Hawaiian
clement of the school population,
constituting nearly one-half of the
pupils in the Government schools, is
now by the disproportionate atten
tion paid to English speaking schools
in danger of being virtually pushed
aside and these schools in Hawaiian
disbanded as no longer a proper
and needful clement in the govern
mental system of education:
Therefore, This Convention of
Teachers desires to put on record its
testimony and conviction as em
bodied in the following resolution:
Jlesolvcd, ( 1 ) That in the opin
ion of this Association the existing
condition of affairs in this Kingdom
is not such as to warrant the dis
continuance as yet of purely Ha
waiian schools ;
(2) That in behalf of the Ila
waiians themselves, in danger of
being crowded out of their birth
right in the strife for merely com
mercial gains, there should be spe
cial attention paid to the preparation
of teachers for the purely Hawaiian
schools and the training of Hawaiian
children iu moral character, and in
telligent citizenship through the
medium of their own language ;
(3) That this Convention, con
vinced of the increasing importance
of an annual gathering of the teach
ers, hereby respectfully urges upon
the Board of Education tho ap
pointment of a normal institute
for the next year, to be heh,
lor at least one- wecKotfuc
school year, jJUJHmohilu, for
the benefit. English schools, and
.j1 'ITl'iiuier the direction of the
Inspector General of Schools, the
attendance of teachers to be con
sidered part of the service for which
compensation is made by the gov
ernment, and that similar institutes
for Hawaiian school teachers of the
Government common schools, and
for all applicants seeking such a
position, bo held at the expense of
the Government in suitable localities
on the other islands under the same
(4) That Jin view of the desirabi
lity of having the same music fami
liar to all classes of the population,
the Board of Education bercquosted
to prepare and publish as soon as
possible, a Howaiian Songbook for
general use in all the schools, to be
supplemented by other music books
considered desirable by the teachers
in their instructions ;
(5) That this Association approve
of the object presented in the in
troduction of instruction of Hygie
nic Physiology in the schools of this
kingdom, calling special attention
to the injurious influence of narco
tics and stimulants upon the phy
sical system of children.
The resolutions were taken up
and discussed separately.
In support of the introduction of
books on hj'gicnic physiology, ho
cited the remark' made by a Prus
sian statesman when Prussia had
been overcome, that if the nation
was to rise, the process must begin
with tho children. Accordingly he
did begin with the children, and
after a few years of common school
education coupled with military
drill, Prussia had gained first rank
among the nations of Europe.
Mr. Moore thought that, although
the law docs provide a school for
any place having 15 children of
schoolable age, the object of the
resolution is to provide schools fpr
those who have none, and to prepare
persons who may be sent to fill
vacancies and to' teach tho pupils
enough Hawaiian and English to fit
thuiu for higher grades.
Profesbor Merritt said the basis
upon which Teacher' Institutes in
tho United States are generally con
ducted at the present timo, fs that
of leadership under a specially
trained and qualified normal
ie;jcher. Institutes have come to
adopt this method because of tho
failuro of tho older one of a divi
sion of work among tho teachers of
tho section. Teachers will como to
an institute at which" they will bo
profited, where Ihey cau learn those
inetuoclB of rorjj which iviii Jucfeuso
their teaching powen Instead,
therefore, of adhering to tho
methods which we have pursued in
the past, he would bo glad to sec
an institute arranged for, to bo
under the instruction of some spe
cialist, brought from tho United
States for that purpose. 1 believe
that to such an institute tho teachers
of tho islands would be glad to
come, great good would bo done,
and that the expenses could be met
by a small Government appropria
tion, increased by voluntary contri
butions. Mr. Jackson wished to ask if the
adoption of the resolutions would
make it obligatory on all tho teachers
in the Kingdom to attend these in
stitutes, lie thought it would be
no easy matter to carry out the
plan. All the teachers present wore
probably not aware that tho expense
to some of the teachers would bo
not loss than 100. Some one threw
in here the remark "We expect the
government to bear the expense,"
on which the speaker brought down
the house with the answer, "Will the
government bear the seasickness?"
Mr. Scott was of the opinion that
there are persons in this country
fully competent to impart ideas on
teaching to those engaged in tile
work. He had no .sympathy with
the opinion that it is necessary to
import a normal instructor from
abroad for this purpose. However
qualified normal instructors in
schools where English is tho verna
cular, are to train teachers for Eng
lish schools, they would find their
methods, when applied to teaching
Hawaiian English, to bo egregious
failures. He had recently visited
about 20 schools, in which ho found
not more than two teachers whose
system was based on cither science
or common sense.
Mr. Moore said he had given both
time and study to the matter of
education and he did not expect to
continue more than forty years more
in the business, but he wished to see
every opportunity possible given to
teachers to qualify themselves for
their work, and he would like to
see the teachers come to these meet
ings and get something of value to
carry with them when they go back
to their schools.
Dr. Hyde supported the scheme
of holding teachers' institutes, and
cited the example of several States
of the American Union having
adopted the same plan.
Mrs. Hendry thought that the
proposed institutes should be held
during the teaching days of the
Mr. Atwatcr advocated the pro
priety of the Convention being
empowered to jWt nv i'nsU.uctor','
provided the institute system is
adopted, and was opposed, on this
point, by Mr. Oleson.
Dr. Hyde explained that the
Teacher's Convention and the pro
posed institute are two separate
bodies. The convention simply asks
the government to provide the insti
tute, and take the whole matter into
their hands, and further that the
institute is not supposed or expected
to supersede tho functions of the
