A SUGGESTION EMPHASIZED.
The fire at Falama Inst Saturday
night serves to emphasize a sugges
tion made in the Bulletin, a month
or two ago, that a lire company be
organised in that district and a hand
engine procured. Probably the fact
that it is a neighborhood which has
been remarkably free from lire, has
had its influence in deterring action
in the direction suggested. Dut the
actual occurrence of a lire which
completely destroyed the building
in which it originated, beforo auy of
the fire companies could reach the
spot, because of the long distance
from the engine houses, shows that
that suburb has no more right to
claim immunity from liability to fire
than any other, as well as showing
the wisdom of the inhabitants being
prepared for such a contingency. A
lire company, with a biiiall manage
able hand engine, located in the
neighborhood, might cut short a lire
at thu commencement, Hint would
effect complete destruction before
assistance could arrive there from
the city. The material bone and
muscle for the formation of an
effective brigade, is abundant in the
district, the population being mainly
composed of the laboring classes
men who earn their bread, or fish
and poi, by the sweat of their
brows, at the Iron Works, in machine
shops and planing mills, and on the
wharves. The material is there,
material of the very be9t quality,
and, no doubt, if some ouo with a
little experience would take the
matter in hand, there would be no
difficulty in getting together a
numerous and efficient company.
A meeting room and an engine shed
are also procurable ; for Hon. J. I.
Dowsett has already offered these,
in a central locality, free of charge.
Perhaps the Honolulu Fire Depart
ment may have an old cast-off hand
engine, that would be good enough
to begin with, which they may bo
willing to give. Will someone move
in the matter, without waiting for
anolhor fire as additional proof of
the importance of the suggestion ?
Under the heading of "Educa
tional," a writer in the Anglican
Church Chronicle for the present
month, says "How much in need
we are in the Island of one or two
readers, expressly for Hawaiian
children, dealing with things and
facts that come under tho daily ob
servation of those taught." Every
one who has had any experience in
teaching Hawaiian children English
lias felt this want. The imported
readers for children in primary
schools, although excellent for English-speaking
children, and precisely
adapted to the requirements of
schools in the countries from which
they come, arc not well suited to
primary Hawaiian schools. Thoy
treat no much of matters which it j
Is hard to roako Hawaiian children
understand, for tho simple reason
that thoy are matters which do not
enter into thu experience or come
under tho observation of children
on these islands. Hut perhaps the
greatest defects of theso books for
our purpose is, that they do not
contain a Milllcicnt number of sim
ple lessons. The Hawaiian boy and
girl, in learning English, arc learn
ing a foreign language, and require
a much greater number of elemen
tary lessons, than boys and girls
who arc simply learning to read
what they have learnt lo lisp and
prattle on their mothers' knees. The
Hawaiian is learning the sound, the
written sign, nud the meaning of
the word, all at the same time.
Hence the necessity of a greater
number of easy lessons, containing
nothing but short and simple words,
linked together in every possible
combination, to familiarise them to
the eye and the car of the learner,
and impress their significance on his
The editor of the A. C. 6, in
commenting un thu article from
which wo have made a biief quota
tion, above, refers lo a fault of young
teachers in our schools, of wishing
to "push on, and accomplish more
than Is required," which "leads to
endless trouble to the teachers who
have to build on their foundation."
Continues the editor, "The only
way we can suggest to amend this
fault Is to give the principals of
the large schools where many
teachers arc employed more time to
superintend nud direct the younger
ones." Without touching upon the
question of young teachers attempt
ing to force their pupils on too
rapidly, and not thoroughly ground
ing them in tho primaries, wc cer
tainly think that the principals of
large schools should have little or
no teaching to do. For instance, in
a school like the Royal School, with
three to four hundred pupils and
ten or dozen teachers, the principal
should be exempt from class duties,
aud be solely superintendent and
examiner. No one man can possi
bly teach a class regularly and pro
perly superintend a school of that
size. Thorough supervision has
vastly more to do with the cfllciency
of a large school than inexpciicnccd

NO MONEY, NO WORK.
This is a money-loving, a money
seeking, and n money-making age.
Perhaps in these things the present
pretty closely resembles tho past,
only that wc know more about our
own times than the times which
preceded us. Anyhow, very minute
or very extended observation is not
required to discover that pursuit of
money in this age, and among peo
ples claiming to be in the forefront
of advancing civilization, is the great,
all-absorbing aim. Even clergymen
some clergymen who of all men
are supposed to be above the love of
"filthy lucre" and to have their
"affections set on things above" this
sublunary sphere, are sometimes
found showing a preference for
churches and congregations which
pay the highest stipends. Demago
gic politicians, who prate of
patriotism and dilate on their large
hearted and undying lovo for the
dear people whom they yearn to
serve, are found secretly guaging
their patriotism and measuring their
love by tho amount of money they
can absorb from tho country or
squeeze from the people.
Perhaps the world is getting worso
in this regard : perhaps it is not :
there certainly is room for it to
grow better. This part of tho world
in which wo live seems lo have be
come worse decidedly worse. Our
patriots and politicians, for the most
part, do not take any particular
pains to conceal the fact that their
priinnry and ultimate object is
money. They have become imbued
with the belief that tho public
treasury was created mainly, if not
solely, for their special benefit. And
so strong is their faith, that on every
occasion when an opportunity offers,
they plunge their hands in witli tho
boldness of a lion, aud grab all they
can. Everyone, regardless of brains,
education, aud experience, considers
himself a fit and proper person for
a scat in the Legislature, or for. the
highest ollico in thu Government.
That is, he feels himself competent
to draw the pay, which is tho great
duty of position, nml tho higher the
pay tho greater tho ability. As for
tho work; well, in the legislative
hall ho can stand up and blow off
sound for an hour nt a timo, without
saying a singlo thing, or sit quietly
down, and hold up his hand, accord
ing to direction, iyh.cn required. In
,&st jiiif aa i jm i! Mi ), n ij
an official position, ho finds a deputy
to do the work, wlillo he takes his
case and pleasure, exerting himself
to the utmost on onu day in thu
month the last day lo be on hand
at tho treasury. Some unchnrilablo
people have gono eo far as lo say
that two-thirds, or thereabout, of
the representative votes of the
legislature enn be purchased for a
small sum of money, such is thu
love for that commodity among the
nation's great men. This, of course,
must be taken as an extreme view,
and n gross libel on that honorable
body of patriots.
Hut this onu fact is patent, that
the genius of the nation is against
doing auy kind of service in thu
national interest or for the public
good, without pay. To bo sure, the
nation is not so utterly sordid as not
to have some worthy individual ex
ceptions. Unfortunately, they are
extremely scarce. The general senti
ment is, "no money, no work."
Rather let thu country go to the dogs
aud thu public Interests perish, than
render thu minutest service without
money compensation. The idea of
serving in a Municipal Council or on
it district Iload Hoard without a
salary is absurdly ridiculous, utterly
incomprehensible 1 Whoever heard
of such a thing? It is not right; it
is not reasonable : it cannot bo done I
No: why not? Perhaps it is not
altogether practicable to have an un
paid Parliament here, like in Great
Hritain and some other countries,
but wc have a low estimate of a
man's patriotism, who is unwilling
to render gratuitous service to his
country, as far as he is able, without
neglecting his own concerns and
those of his family.
Editou Bullktix: You had
something to say about superstition,
the other day, aud cited some illus
trations of its existence among in
telligent people. 1 can give you
another instance, just hot from the
oven. In company with a few
others, I was invited to dine at a
friend's house the other day. I
accepted tho invitation. 1 always
do when a inenl is on the pro
gramme. Dinner came on in due
cotirbU, and we all gathered around
the table, with stupendous appetites,
judging from after effects. Just as
the woik of demolition was about to
begin, someone discovered that thu
company consisted of thirteen
that unlucky number. This dis
covery necessitated either the re
tirement of somebody or the calling
in of somebody else, and until the
number was changed, tho business
of the occasion could not proceed.
Now, it appears to me that many of
tho native superstitions, at which
we smile contemptuously, are not
onu particle more absurd than this.
