AlONDAY, Allr. 10th.
Rep. Citstlo presented the report
of the select committee on special
aid to schools, as follows:
To the IIos. John S. "NVtvlkeii,
President of the Legislative Assem
bly. Sin: The select committee
to which wits referred the following
items fiom the Appropriation Bill,
ForSuppoit of Hawaiian and
English Schools 8100,000
For bupnoit of Common
For School Buildings and Re
For Reformatory School 20,000
also, 2nd, several items proposed as
For old to St. Louis College.-.. 810,000
For aid to St. larv's School. . . 5,000
For aid to llllo Boaidlng School 0.000
For aid to Kawaiahao Female
For aid to Makawao Female
lespeclfitlly teport as follows:
I. Tlie items for support of Ha
waiian and English Schools and for
support of common schools are prac
tically the same us used in the Edu
cation Ofllce and are so treated in
The total expenditiuc has been
S10l,!110.53, leaving something over
8."),000 unexpended. The outlay ap
pears to the committee to have been
judicious. Of this amount S12,-4.r) I.
l has been paid to various
independent bchools. Nearly all of
this has been paid out as capitation
lor which is, a Mini paid upon cer
tain conditions for each fecholar in
the school complying with the con
ditions. The rule appears to be a
good one and should be observed by
the Board of Education. Payment
to boys' school is nearly tlie same,
although the payment is made on
what is called a scholarship. In
one instance that of a Roman Catholic
school in liana there has been a
small direct grant, and in these
schools the Board allows a small
salary to special teachers. The re
maining 1)1,88(5.38 has been used
for the support of the Government
schools, both English and Hawaiian,
including Lahainaluna, and in the
main the expenditure lor, these
schools seems to have been wise.
It is noticeable from the report of
tliu President of the Board ot Edu
cation that the proportion of teach
ers to scholars in the various schools
of the Kingdom differs very
widely. In schools where there
are several giades, cases will of
necessity arise when one teacher
will have a smaller number of pupils
than could be cared for by one, but
when a school has practically but
one grade, a snllicient number of
teaeheis should be employed to give
ptoper attention to each scholar.
It is pretty well settled by the ex
perience of other countries as well
as our own that no more than thirty
pupils can be properly cared for by
one teacher. In several of our
schools the proportion far exceeded
this, and in tlie opinion of the com
mittee a proper clHcicncy can not be
obtained in schools wheie such ex
cessive pioportion exists. In order
to cover the need which may arise
from this matter and other contin
gencies the committee recommend
the item as follows:
For Support of Hawaiian and
JItiglish Schools 61110,000
Of the amount appropriated two
years ago of 8 15, 000 for repairs and
building school houses only S978
was used ; not that there was not
very gieat and crying need through
out tlie country, but the money
could not be had from the treasury
on account of the great expenditure
for other objects. The Board, how
ever, drew considerable fiom its
other sources of revenue for this
purpose. Although a much larger
amount could bo used with advan
tage, yet the Board of Education
believes that the special work laid
out for the next two years can bo
accomplished for the appropriation
asked. It is proposed to erect now
and commodious school houses at
llolualoa, AVaimea, Paauilo, Ookala,
Ilamakuapoko, Kipahulu, Kaupo,
Ilalawa and other places.
The committee recommend that
this item pass at 815,000.
The item of 820,000 is 85,000
jiioio than hithetto asked for tho
Reform School, but if it js needed it
should bo appropriated. While thin
school has not in the past accom
plished all that could be hoped for,
yet it has been an institution of
great bencllt. This has been leeog
nized to such a degree that parents
havo, not iinfrcquently, come volun
tarily and lequested tho Board of
Education to put obdurate and mis
chievotis boys in the school. No
depaitmeat for girls is now main
tained. Tho boys nrc placed to
gether in one large dormitory, n
teacher sleeps near to them, and if
any disturbance occurs it can bo at
onco quelled and order maintained.
But this does not cover all the re
quirements. Such a school ought
to do something mote than, punish
juvenile offenders, and teach them
habits of industry. It ought to pre
vent, if possible, the intercourse of
the older and more depraved boys
with the young and comparatively
innocent youths who congtegalo m
tlie school. This can be accom
plished, as far as possible, by abso-
lute separation of tho two elements
except in tho presenco and tinder
the care and attention of teachers.
To accomplish this much, some fur
ther buildings may be necessary.
There aro to-day a considerable
number of young men about tho
country, well settled with largo and
ptospcrous families, who have reg
ular and constant employment at
various trades, who arc products of
the Reform School. The lioaid of
Education has permitted boys to be
apprenticed to learn trades, and the
beneficial result thus appears. Had
it not been for the rcstiaining inllu
encc of this school it is probable
that these sober, industrious and
useful citizens would have been
worthless vagabonds a charge upon
the community and a curse to them
selves. It has been suggested that
shops might be erected on the
premises and various trades taught
there, but in view of the very largo
expense attending this for the con
struction of buildings, equipping
them with machinery, and then run
ning them, it does not seem expedi
ent at present to change tho present
system, and with this eiy brief
view tlie committoe lecommend the
Assembly pass the items as follows :
Suppoi t of Reform School S 10,000
Buildings and repairs to same... 0,000
2. With respect to the sevotal
items, amounting to S25,000, pro
posed to be insetted in tlie Appro
priation Bill for private schools, the
committee consider it is the duty of
the Government to provide educa
tion for the people so far us possi
ble. In fulfillment of that duty, wc
find an efficient and well equipped
school system extending throughout
tlie Islands, under tlie caic and
supervision of the Boaid of Educa
tion, and conducted at the public
expense, furnishing means of educa
tion in the Hawaiian and English
languages from the elementary
branches to the higher departments,
the upper grades of schools in the
cities and towns and Lahainaluna
offering exceptional advantages,
only surpassed, perhaps, by Oahu
College. Such being the case, it
would be contrary to sound policy
to encourage and assist private
schools, which present nearly the
6ame course of training as oifcred
1)3' the Government schools. That
these schools injure the public sys
tem, is shown in Honolulu, Wailuku,
Hiio and elsewhere, where such
institutions as St. Louis College, St.
Albans' and Mr. Atkinson's school
and others, the schools conducted
by the Catholic Brothers in Wailuku
and Ihlo, draw off the pupils fiom
the regular public schools, making
the proportionate expense of educa
tion considerably greater without
airy specially increased advantages.
No doubt the instructions in tlie
scveial educational institutions re
ferred to are of high class, but the
means and methods of instruction
are no better, peibaps not so good,
as those furnished by the regular
In view of the foregoing brief re
marks, the committee cannot recom
mend the insertion of any direct ap
propriation in aid of any private
school which offcis the same or sim
ilar advantages to those furnished
by tlie Government schools. If aid
is furnished to any such schools, it
certainly should be confined to
assistance on the capitation plan.
These remarks also npphy to Hilo
Boys' Boauling School, although it
has been suggested that this school
stands upon a whorty diffeient basis
from that presented by the other
schools, cither public ' or private.
This school has this year completed
fifty years of faithful service. It
has the important feature of com
bining manual laboi training with
its course of mental development.
In years past, and even to the pre
sent day, tho Government has
drawn from its graduates some of
their most eflicient teachers, but no
snllicient reason appears why it
should receive any special grant
contrary to the principle therein
laid down. The whole system of
making direct appropriations and
grants to individuals when tho pub
lic is not directly benellted in some
way not obtainable fiom public
sources is bad, and should be dis
couraged, and the committee so re
commend. But the female boaul
ing schools present a wholly different
case. Here we find a system of
education and training which the
Government does not attempt or
pretend to supply. It is of tho
greatest importance to tho future of
the nation that its mothers should bo
well and carefully nurtured in do
mestic duties and obligations. The
work done by such schools at St.
Andiow's Prioiy, the Sisters of tho
Sacred Heart, Kawaiahao and Sla
kawito female semlnaiien is of incal
culable benefit to tho country. It
would indeed be a national calamity
to have them discontinued and the
system dropped. The chairman of
the committee has visited these
schools in Honolulu, and can only
speak in admiration and approval of
what ho saw. But even with tlicso
schools tho Legislative Assembly
should puiiao before making appro
pi iatlons fpr more running exponses,
especially in view of the necessity
cxistiug for economy at present. At
tlie present time "nothing further
should bo done than granting assist
ance for permanent improvements,

W, K. Castix,
S. W. Kaai.
Rep. Brown moved tho adoption
of the report.
Minister Gibson did not sign the
rcpott, not on account of any seri
ous objection to its statements, for,
leaving out some small strictures,
and taking it altogether, he ap
proved of the icport. Ho 'would
differ a little from the other gentle
men in the matter of special appro
priations for the assistance of pri
vate schools. He fully endorsed
all that was i-aid about aid to female
boauling schools, but thought spe
cial assislnnco should be given to
institutions for boys which were
manifestly for the benefit of Ha
waiian youth. Whilst he recognized
what had been said as to the St.
Louis institution being somewhat in
opposition to the Government
schools, yet thete was an institution
with' a dozen or more professors
men of llrst-class attainments edu
cating neaily four hundred youth of
the kingdom and doing so in a very
thorough manner. Although it was
a leligiuus institution the Cluistian
Brothcis, any more than the Sisteis,
were not engaged in propagating
their faith, but they believed in edu
cating the boy so as to enable him
to bear his part well and honorably
in life. Although the boy might be
under a religious intlucnce in the
college, ho went forth from it with
out any attempt having been made
to change his faith. If all the pupils
wei e good paying ones, the institu
tion would have enough for all ex
penses ; but the college was a bene
volent one, to some extent eleemosy
nary in its scope. It was going to
have chemical lectures, for that pur
pose iinpoiting a great deal of che
mical app.iiatus from Fiance, and
would require additional buildings.
AVhile fully concuiring with all that
the committee lecommended, he
submitted those suggestions and
would move that the report be laid
on the table for consideration with
the Appropriation Bill.
Rep. Dole asked if he understood
the Minister to say .that some of the
St. Louis pupils did not pay any
thing. Minister Gibson replied that it
Rep. Dole had a good deal to do
with the school, and never heard
that before, although he knew that
some paid less than others.
Rep. Kaulukou supported the
motion to lay the report on the
table, and gave high praise to the
St. Louis College.
Rep. Brown moved that the repoit
be adopted. He did not believe in
appropriating money for propagat
ing tlie views of any religious sect,
and that was a vow the teachers in
that institution had to take on enter
ing. If they were really in want of
money lie would give it to them, but
last session the Legisintuic voted
810,000 for that institution to put
up buildings, and that was snllicient.
It was a rich institution, having
money out at interest. If they
wanted to give them anything, let
the Gocrnuient give them a scholar
ship, but to giving them 810,000
for the purpose of enabling them to
proselyte the other people lie ob
jected. He theicforc hoped the
report of tlie committee would be
Rep. Castle said it might bo sug
gested that he had his say in the re
port, but perhaps the principle was
not laid down thcie sufficiently
clear. They should not get outside
of what was proper aid from the
Government to private schools. He
perfectly agreed with what had been
said by the Piesident of tho Board
and the lion, member for Hilo, but
if they adopted that principle there
were many schools that should get
assistance for the same reason. He
was convinced, after discussing the
question with many people outside
of the committee, that tho important
principal ought to be followed of
not voting money to various institu
tions, but to let the Government dis
buise the money. They found, in
looking over the i eport of the Edu
cation Department, that the St.
Louis College not only received a
large amount for building 87,500
out of the appropriation of 810,000
but capitation fees besides of
81,500, making 89,000 in nil; while
the Hilo Boys' Boarding School was
refused capitation fees because it
had a special grant of 85,000, of
which it only received 82,000.
There ought not to be a chance for
discrimination of that sort. Ho
hoped tho house would adopt tho re
port and onco for all stop that prin
ciple of making indiscriminate ap
propriations for nil soi ts of objects,
even where they were good. Ho
undci stood from ono member of the
committee (Mr, Bishop) that to the
Hilo Boarding School belonged the
business of special appropriations,
whicli-was initiated on its behalf,
but let them stop it right now.
Hep. Dole supported tho adoption
of tho roport, It stated a principle,
that llioy should not provide sup
port for objects whom tho Govern
incut itself furnished similar oppor
tunities; for instance, in this matter
of boys' schools, lint as the Govern
ment hud no female seminaries, or
girls' 8chopls, tho recommendation
there was quite proper, and tliot in
tho woy of buildings only. T lioro
was no icasoii, becauso a school was
a. good one, that tho Government
should assist it tho vory fact that
it was a good school was ono reason
