WEDNESDAY. SUIT. i:. 1880.
At a time when duties are being
resumed at the various educational
establishments throughout the King
dom, it occurs to us that a word in
season may with advantage be
uttered. And in giving it publicity
we wish it to be distinctly under
stood that wc are in no way rcllect
ing upon the elllciency of those en
gaged in the groat work of tiainin
the minds of the rising generation.
If reflection it be, it is rather upon
the public, whose servants they are,
than upon them. Wc refer to the
tendency which exists in many
schools in the present day to devote
an undue amount of time and atten
tion to the cultivation of those ac
complishments which may be de
scribed as ornamental rathef than
useful, to the exclusion or partial
neglect of such more solid branches
of study as form the basis of a sound
education, whereon may be built
the special training which shall fit
the pupil for the sphere he is to till
in after life. Prior to the schools
breaking up for the vacation just
cUsed, in some of their number ex
hibitions were made with pardonable
pride of the attainments in eeitain
branches of study, which the pupils
had acquired, whilst parents and
others assembled in force to witness
the same. Wc have no word to say
against this system of school exhi
bitions that is, in the abstract; for
does it not engender in the scholars
a healthful spirit of emulation?
Nevertheless, we cannot lose sight
of the fact that it is open to a grave
abuse, and one which it lies in the
power of the public to ameliorate.
It is customary on such occasions to
expect something entertaining; in
fact, at times the affair partakes
solely of the nature of an entertain
ment, in which singing and recita
tions form the preponderating ele
ment. These the general public
are wont to applaud and make much
of, and that they are good in tliein
belves we not deny. But what we
contend is that they frequently
occupy in the public mind too con
spicuous a place in the curriculum,
in their relation to other subjects of
more vital and fundamental import
ance. The three Ks and other
branches of primary education are
less attractive; hence it is that
visitors to a school will often pay
but little heed to these. As a neces
sary consequence, teachers tbeni
belves, though they may discern the
error in public opinion, feel bound
in a measure to go with the tide, in
order to satisfy thoso for whom they
are catering. So far as the former
are concerned, the". subject matter
of thijj article would doubtless be
superfluous, but with a large section
of the public it is otherwise. Let it
be borne in mind that one of the
main functions of the schoolmaster
is to develop in his pupils the
faculty of thinking in other words,
common sense und that commit
ting to memory, u thing important,
though subsidiary, is not that most
calculated to promote this.
prefer to remain on tho Island as
long as life could bo sustained, in
hopes of being relieved, but few, if
any, would attempt the fent just ac
complished by Henry Norman,
Chief Ofllcer of the Dunnntor Castle,
the six seamen who accom
panied him. To leave the island in
an open boat in the face of a head
wind, with only US days' provisions,
and with 1,200 miles between him
and a port of refuge, was, in the
opinion of some old experienced
mariners, an act of sheer madness,
and could result in nothing but
death. It proved otherwise. Air.
Noimau saw death staring him and
his comrades in the face, by rcmain-
tug on thu island, and the only
alternative was to face the dangers of
the deep and endeavor to reach
Honolulu. This he did as already
He having accomplished his task
and brought the sad news of having
left 22 living souls on a barren
island, it stimulated the authorities
to do something, and to do that
something quickly. The Uritish
Government, ever ready to act with
promptitude in eases of emergency,
chartered a steamer to proceed to
the scene of the wreck, whilst the
Hawaiian Government sent a physi
cian with the necessary medical
comforts. There were also put on
bo.trd sufllcicnt provisions for a six
months' cruise. All this was done
within 18 hours of the news being
Now the question is, has the best
thing been done that could be done?
In our humble opinion, yes. And
now comes the question, what can
be done for the future? Many sug
gestions have been made by men of
experience. The building of a house
or shed on the island, storing of
fresh water and provisions for the
future use of the shipwrecked
mariners, are commendable acts.
Also, the planting of eoeoanut trees
will no doubt prove beneficial on
some future occasion.
But we have a suggestion to make,
that we have not yet heard mooted.
It is, that a vessel be despatched to
cruise around this chain of islands
about three or four times a year.
What use of water and provisions,
if no iclief is forthcoming? Mr.
Norman tells us they erected a flag
pole and hoisted a flag to attract the
attention of any vessel that might
pass. But no vessels pass that way.
It is not, as a rule, in the track of
merchant ships, hence a flag as high
as the Egyptian pyramids Would be
useless. But if, as we suggest, a ves
sel were to cruise around every three
months, theie would be some hope
of saving some unfortunate cast
aways. It may be said that the Hawaiian
Government has no vessel to send
on such an expedition, but a schooner
or steamer can at all times he
chartered for the purpose. Again,
the British Government might des
patch one of their mosquito-fleet of
gunboats on these merciful missions,
instead of their hovering around,
watching the movements of their
supposed enemies. The United
States Government, though not over
burdened with a navy, might also
It'is but rarely that it falls to the
lot of a Honolulu journalist to
chronicle a shipwreck on these or
the adjacent islands, but when ono
does happen, it is invariably at
tended by sonic miraculous escape
of. the crew. In the event of a ves
sel being stranded on any one of the
chain of islands that extend for
everal hundred miles in a YV.N.W.
direction from this group, as was the
case with the Dunimlor Castle, the
chances of reaching this port in an
open boat, arc but very slight, the
wind blowing from the Eastward
about three-fourths of the year.
The recent catastrophe has given
rise to various opinions umo;igt
'seafaring men and others, asio what
vps. the proper thing to do in case
of. being cast away on Ocean
Island. Some say, lit up your boats
take a part in tendering assistance to
the shipwrecked mariners.
Had Mr. Norman tiot had a brave
heart, and been nobly aided by his
companions, the fate of Captain
Martin and his 21 seamen, would be
dreadful to contemplate. As it is,
the worst is not yet known. Let us
hope for the best, and pray that the
combined efforts of the relief party
may bo successful.
In conclusion, a word for the
Interisland S. S. Co. They deserve
the highest praise for placing a
steamer at tho disposal of the Gov
ernment, much to their own incon
venience. In cases of emergenoy
they are always ready to assist, and
always do so with promptitude and

The President ruled that the mo

able on the merits of the bill, but
the propriety of rejecting the bill
may be discussed.
Minister Dare said his discussion
was solely on the question of reject

Rep. "Dole appealed to the house
from the ruling of the chair.
Reps. Kaulukou and Dole read
the Hawaiian and English versions
of rule 71.

the chair was arbitrary and unjust.
No rule of the house warranted the
chair in making such a ruliu

the intention of the rule was to pre

out of order themselves.
Minister Dare said the honorable
member for Lahaina, who is usually
a good parliamentarian, ought to be
sure of hi-j giound before reading
lectures to other members.
Noble Bishop said he knew of no
rule of the house to prevent debat
ing a bill on first reading, although
it had been customary not to do so.
Under these circumstances, the pre
cedents of the United Stales Con
gress and the Parliament of Great
Britain are followed ; and in the
United State Congress, a bill may
be debated on first reading. On a
motion to reject, it was but fair that
a member be allowed the opportu
nity of explaining the provisions of
The President said ho had no
desire to give arbitrary rulings, nor
for the house to sustain the chair in
any such rulings. Finding that the
rules of the United States Congress
admit of debating a bill on first
other undue influences at elections,
it will be of immenso advantage, as
wc should then havo independent
voting. At last election theso
abuses were worse than over before.
The Opposition blntncd the Govern
ment party for the abuses, but he
did not think cither party could dis
count the other. With reference to
the ,lntchess of the session, he
thought if a good law could be had,
it was worth while for the members
to slny here until they pass it.
Rep. Ilayseldcn supported the
motion to reject the bill. He be
lieved it to be impracticable. The
introducer Had recommended, as a
member of the election committee,
that all election bills be referred to
a committee to report on at next
session. He was present in the
committee when this bill was pro
posed, and he opposed it then.
Rep. Castlo said that when he, as
Chairman of the Election Commit

sign, tho latter asked if in signing
the report, he would shut out his
'proposed voting bill, and he (the
speaker) had informed him it would

Affairs of the late Ministry:

Finance in answer to the question
of the Hon. L. A. Thurston, in re

to the Oceanic Steamship Company,
stated that several of such subsidies

House records that the said steam

the payment of said subsidy required
that the service should be performed
by steamers registering at least
1,900 tons. Please state by what

Rep. Dole said this bill is the
voice of one of the districts of the
kingdom, and was part of tho regular
business of the house. In answer to
the remarks of the Minister, he said
he had notified the committee of his
intention to bring in a bill to regu
ate voting. Expressions of opposi
tion to this bill are to be expected
from that political element who do
not desire fair voting. This bill
was drawn up on tho Hoes of the

provide for pure clean voting, and
for that alouu. All he asked the

so that it may bo read and dis

who respect themselves will sppport

country who do not want cleon vot

RECEPTION AT THE JAPANESE
His Imperial Japanese Majesty's
Consulate-General, in Nuuanu
Avenue, presented a scene of fairy
like enchantment last night. The
front lawn, from the Consulate to
the public street, was aglow with the
soft, mild light of vari-colored
Japanese lanterns, in teeming pro
fusion, disposed with art and taste.
From the top of the Consulate flag
pole, reaching to the ground at
some distance on opposite sides,
were stretched two lines of the same
description of lanterns, with the
colors skilfully alternated. The
exterior of the Consulate was illu
minated and beautified in a similar
manner, with the addition ot flans
depending from the verandahs above,
and draping the, pillars at the en
trance. Within was a blaze of light
and a garden of flowers.
On the front lawn, and surrounded
by the subdued artificial light before
alluded to, the Royal Hawaiian
Band, under the leadership of Pro
fessor Berger, took up its position,
and during the evening, from 7 :.'!()
to 10, played with spirit and skill a
programme of musical selections
chosen for the occasion.
The purpose of all this was to do
honor to Captain Y. Fukushiina and
officers, of II. I-. J. M.'s Training
ship Tsukuba, now in port, to whom
a reception was being given by the
Japanese Consul-General and lady,
Mr. and Mrs. Taro Ando,
Numerous Invitations had been
issued, and were cheerfully re
sponded to. Guests began to arrive
at 7:80 o'clock, the time appointed,
and continued in a steady stream
for nearly an hour following. They
were met on the verandah by Vis
count Tori and Mr. T. Fujita, by
whom they were conducted to the
reception parlor and presented to
the host and hostess and Captain
Tukushima. The formalities of
presentation ending, the guests in
termingled and passed the time in

were served, shortly after which tho

legation was so assiduous and kind
