ENGLISH IH OUR SCHOOLS.
Mr. Atkinson, in his opening ad
dress at the Teachers' Convention,
on Monday last, said lie considered
"that the three most important
things in Hawaiian education are :
1st, English ; 2nd, JEnylish, and 3rd
English. " We endorse that opin
ion, and believe if every Govern
ment teacher and every Government
school in the country, in which Eng
lish is taught, had practically en
dorsed it ten years ago, English
would have been much better under
stood and better spoken by young
Hawaiians to-day than it actually is.
We have said "every" Government
school ; but would amend by add
ing, "except, jjon-sireci scuooi.
This school is excepted because its
pupils are mostly of foreign parent
age, and speak English as their
mother tongue. Not so with regard
to any other Government school in
the country. English is taught in
them, or in those of them in Tihich
English is taught at all, as a foreign
language, to childreu who scarcely
have any other opportunity of ac
The native schools, or schools in
which instruction is conveyed
through the medium of the vernacu
lar, have in all the populous dis
tricts of the country been substi
tuted by English schools, or schools
in which English is taught nnd is
made the medium of instruction.
Nine-tenths of the children, whether
native Hawaiian, Portuguese or any
other nationality, who attend the
schools for tho first time, are totally
ignorant of the English language,
and bcfoio it can be used as a
medium through which to receive
instruction of any kind, n knowledge
of tho language must bo acquired.
This fact is sufllcient to show that
the thorough teaching of English is
of the first importance in all these
schools. To teach the pupils to
understand, read, write, and speak
English should be the primary aim
of every school, and until thoy (tho
pupils) become moderately clllcient
in tho language, it is folly to set
them at complex equations or the
problems of Euclid.
Judging from what wo havo wit
nessed, our opinion is that our pub
lio school teachers, as a whole, have
not, in times past, been sufficiently
impressed with Jtfr. Atkinson's
"firstly, secondly, and thirdly."
Tho schools havo attempted foo
much. Too many branches arc in
cluded in the curriculum. Native
boys and girls nro set. to dabbling
in a half dozen subjects which they
cannot understand, by reason of not
understanding the language in which
they tire taught. Tims n large por
tion of their school clays arc little
better than wasted, nnd they leave
school with a mere superficial
smattciing ot the language which
is their primary object in attending
school to learn. 'Whereas if they
wore kepi mainly nt 1'higlish, and
thoroughly grounded in its rudi
ments, they would be, on leaving
school, in possession of a medium
through which they might acqulie
any useful knowledge dcsiicd, ns
well as being better fitted to com
pete with others in earning a. liveli
hood. Let us hope that the public
school teachers will become thor
oughly imbued with the Inspector
General's doctrine, and that the re
sults will become manifest in the
schools nnd in the children attend
THE ROAD BOARD ACT.
An Act passed at the Extra Ses
sion of the Legislature "to amend
the law concerning load Supervisors,
and to establish road boards,"
enacts in its second section that
"the Minister of the Intoiior shall
appoint three competent residents
of each taxation district of the King
dom, except Honolulu, one of whom
shall bo named as chairman, who
shall act as and be the Uoad Hoard
for the District for which they are
appointed. The members of the
said Hoard shall serve without pay."
The Minister of Interior, as
ditectcd, has appointed the boards,
and the roads of the Kingdom, out
side of the district of Honolulu, arc
now under hoard control. Of the
general wuiking of the Act through
out the couutiy, whether satisfuo
toiy or otherwise, wc have heard
but little. From accouuts in the
"Gazette," at different times, writ
ten at Hilo, it appears that the Act
i3 giving satisfaction in that dis
trict. A statement reaches us about a
distiict somewhere to the north ol
Honolulu, on the Island of Oahu,
from which it appears that the
Road Board there is swallowing a
large proportion of the local tax in
salaries paid to its own nicmbeis.
There is a salaried gcneial Super
visor, wiio is not a member of the
IJoaid, and then there is a kind of
sub-supervisor and also a secretary,
each of whom is a member of the
Board and draws a salary. Before
this measure of local self-government
was granted, one salary only
was paid, that of the general super
The statement is silent as to
whether the additional salaries pro
duce better roads. Perhaps they
do. But how about the unpaid
members of the Bo.ird being its paid
olllcials? The Act says "the mem
bers of the Boaul shall serve with
out pay;" that is their services as
members of the Boaid must he
given without pa'; but does the
Act contemplate the appointment of
the Boaid by the Board, to posi
tions of emolument, under its own
supervision? We haully think so.
TRANSLATION AND COMMENT.
The following is a translation from
the "Luso Ilawaiiano," kinilly fur
nished us hy a friend: "The Eng
lish paper) Daily Huixv.tin," which
till now has hcen considered favor
ahle to the cause of the people and
the white woiking men, ugainst the
invasion of Asiatics, sccins stagger
ing, as if it had heen bought or
intimidated by tho friends of un
limited immigration. It published
alKO last week an article respecting
Japanese, in which it tiied to piove
that they nre much supeiior to
Chinamen. Probably wc shall shortly
sec the Ihii.i.r.Tix write, at the re
quest of the friends of Japanese
immigration, to convince the white
laborers that Japanese competition
would bo more advantageous than
This is pretty rich, and in its in
sinuations pretty untruthful, which
the editor of the "Luso" well knows.
"Staggering, intimidation, bought,"
because the Iiri.LivnN docs not en
dorse, in itsentiiety, tlio progrannno
of tlio Anti-Asiatic Union. Tlio
Bum.ktin is invariably "favorable
to tho cause of tho people," etc,
but that is not saying that wo nre
prepared to favor every or any jum
ble of illogoeial incongruities which
professes to bo "tho cause of tho
people," etc. Wo uro old enough
tofoim our own opinions, and nsk
nobody's permission to cxpicss them,
Neither do wo writo ntthofequest"
of anybody in defence of anything
against our own conviction. With
regard to tho Bulletin attempting
to prove that the ordinary Jap is
superior to the ordinary Chinaman,
no proof is required. Every man
who is acquainted with the two races,
sees it and knows it. What man of
sense would think of putting the
two into the same bag? This is one
of the blundeis of the Anti-Asiatic
Union. The Bullktik docs not ap
prove of unrestricted Chinese immi
gration. On .the contrary, it be
lieves in restricting it to the needs
of sugar and lice plantations, and
legislating to keep that class of im
migration from coming into competi
tion with tho people of Western
civilization. iJtit let the "Luso II :t
waiinno" distinctly understand that
the Daily BuLi.ivriK docs not be
lieve in a crude mixture of ill-eon-sidorcd,
such as were contained in the text
of an Anti-Asiatic petition published
in the local paper a few weeks ago.
THE GOHSPIRACY CASES.
When the Supremo Court opened
at 9 :30 this murning, the Attorney
General presented indictments
against W. S. Luco and Geo. W.
Mucfailano lospectivcly, chaiging
them with conspiracy, in the lit st
degree, because of their alleged con
nection with the lately developed
withdrawals of liquor from the Cus
tom House, without payment of
duties thereon. Eich indictment
contains three counts, as follows:
For conspiracy to commit the offence
of gross cheat against the Govern
ment, conspiracy to '.'do what is
obviously and directly, wrongfully
injurious to another, to wit, to the
Hawaiian Government," and con
spiiacy to "he knowingly concerned
in the removing, etc., of impelled
and dutiable goods upon which no
duties have been paid."
Counsel lor each of the defend
ants demurred to tho sufficiency of
tho indictments, upon the ground
that thej" set forth no statutory
offence. Argument on the demur
rers will probably be heaidat the
opening of Court to-morrow.
