COURSE OF STUDY FOR PUBLIC
A very necessary step in the
right direction lias been made by
the Board of Education in supply
ing a course of study for the Public
English Schools of thiskingtlotn. The
compilers of the course seem to
have done their best to meet, prac
tically, the wants of the schools in
their present condition, which, as
we pointed out in an article last
April, is peculiar and unlike the
condition of any other set of schools
in the world. The main thing to do
at present is to teach our children
to read, write and speak English
correctly, and not in the style
known as "hapahaolc" English.
The course issued by the Board of
Education makes n distinct effort
to teach English on a sound basis
from the very first, and we sec that
the same idea is even carried into
the High School course. A pupil
who takes the last three years will
bo well acquainted with the outline
of Englibh and American literature
and will he thoroughly acquainted
with several complete works of the
leading poetry and prose writers.
Wc albo notice that care has been
taken that a knowledge of accounts
should bo acquired at an early age.
Ofj,what advantage is it that a child
caii work square or cube root if it
is nnablo to make out intelligently
a statement of practical accounts?
Tliero js a great deal of embroidery
in modern education which can be
very well done without; what a
child wants is good stout cloth with
only a very narrow edging of em
broitlory. From a foot nolo wc learn that
Utc History of Hawaii for the use of
schools Is to bo from the pen of
Prof 06901" Alexander. Tliete Is no
ono in the kingdom who is so well
filled for the tusk, the professor be
ing a ripe scholar and a graceful
writer. When the work is complet
ed it will take a place among onr
school text book". The (Jengraphy
of Hawaii, also mentioned a a texl
book, has been wiitlen by Jlr. At
kinson, the Inspector-General, and
is, wc believe, completed It will
therefore soon lie in the printer's
TAX ON SAILORS.
The San Francisco "Evening
Post" in a recent issue commenting
on the refusal of the Legislature to
do away with the lax of two dollars
per head put upon everyone who ar
rives at these islands from abroad,
for the support of the Queen's Hos
pital, confuses this impost with that
which sailors on Hawaiian vessels
pay to keep up the Marine Hospital
Fund, and roundly denounces the
Hawaiian Legislature for its refus
ing to do justice to the sailors who
ship under our flag. The Marine
Hospital Tax levied upon our sailors
is something very distinct from the
tax which passengers have to pay,
and primarily had nothing to do
willi the Queen's Hospital. Under
an old law twenty-live cents per
month is to be deducted by the
masters of all Hawaiian vessels
(whether engaged in coasting or
foreign going commerce), from the
wages of each sailor and the sums so
levied and paid to the Customs to
form a fund for the maintenance of
a Seamen's Hospital and for the
care of sick sailors until such an in
stitution is provided. Out ol this
fund the Minister of Interior is
authorised to provide for the tempo
rary relief and maintenance of sick
or disabled Hawaiian seamen until
hospitals or other suitable institu
tions arc established for the pur
pose within the Kingdom. The law
provided that, after defraying the
expense of such relief, the surplus
from year to year should be invest
ed until a fund had accumulated
which would be sudicient to provide
hospital accommodation for sick sea
men. But a final clause of the Act
authorised the Minister in case a
general hospital existed at any of
our seaport towns to "contract with
the same to apply any part of the
Marine Hospital Fund to the sup
port thereof, on condition that full
provision is made for the accommo
dation relief and maintenance of
sick and disabled Hawaiian sea
men." Under the provisions of this
clause some Minister shuttled the
whole tiouble of the thing off his
shoulders by applying not a "part,"
but the whole of the seamen's con
tributions towards the maintenance
of the Queen's Hospital at Honolulu,
making no provision whatever for
the Hawaiian sailor who might be
hurt or taken sick at any other port
of the kingdom.
The arrangement thus made
would, on the face of it, have been
a good one, provided that in making
his bargain with the Trustees of the
Queen's Hospital the Minister who
is responsible for it had seen to it
that the law as to the relief of the
sick and disabled sailors was carried
into effect had seen in fact that
the sailors who pay this special tax
of !1 per annum got something in
return for it. This was not done,
neither as has already been said,
was anything done for the relief of
tlioso who needed it either at the
outposts or abroad. .All that the
Queen's Hospital gives in return for
the handsome contribution to its
funds compulsarily taken from our
sailors, Cbtimated wc sec by Mr.
Green lor the current period at
51800 a year is to take in sick or
hurt sailors who are dull rtisciargetl
from the ships thoy have been serv
ing on for the space ol not moie
than three months after the dis
charge. The trustees when appealed to
some time ago in the case of a bick
sailor on the Australia, whom they
insisted in charging for, maintained
that the owners of the vessel, not
the sailor, were liable to pay. So
they are primarily, no doubt, res
ponsible to the Hospital, but they
always recover what they pay out of
wages of the men who have already
paid out of tho self same wages $!5
per annum as an insurance fund to
secure from this our Government
fri-n hosoital M'rvice The ease of
jree hospital bcnice. me east oi
sick Bailor on tho Australia, who a
couple of years or so ago was car
ried on because tho Hospital wotihl
nol lake him free, and who died on
the passage, led to much unfavora
ble comment in San Francisco prcis
til the lime, and is evidently not for
gotten, as the lcmarks of the Post,
which wc have re fori cd to show.
SUFFERING FROM WANT OF A
KniTon Hi M.i.TiN : In a late pa
per I lead Ihc opinions of a gentle
man who had been interviewed con
cerning the pi ejected strangers' in
llrmary. This gentleman is quoted
as having '-aid, "That the projected
strangers' infirmary, for which a
grant of land was asked of the Le
gislature, would better be attached
to the Queen's Hospital under ap
propriate, legislation, llierc being
even now a good deal of spare ac
commodation in that institution.
The general distribution of Govern
ment physicians throughout the
group pi evented the congestion that
once existed in the Queen's Hospi
tal, from numerous consignments of
sick folks from the plantations."
Now then, Mr. Editor, please al
low me to express my opinion also
for the sake for those poor and suf
fering who are cast into our midst
in a strange country. No doubt that
the gentleman quoted above is none
the less sincere and desirous of as
sisting and co-operating with those
philanthropic ladies and gentlemen
of Honolulu, whose humane and
truly Christian feelings induced
them to put all their efforts towards
that laudable object of obtaining a
haven of refuge for those sick, who
are in a strange country, thousands
of miles away from friends and kin.
The Legislature, which has at all
times been willing to assist every
deserving cause, will no doubt conic
to the rescue in this case also,
whether by a grant of land or other
wise. But as the Hawaiian Group
is steadily becoming more peopled,
it is only right to expect that the
demands for hospital accommoda
tions will correspondingly increase.
There might be a time when the
Queen's Hospital will not accom
modate all who crave for admittance.
In tho season of plenty is the time
to provide for a rainy day. Looking
at it iu this light it will be seen that
a grant of land would be perhaps of
greater benefit than any other ar
rangement. Finally we have to look in another
diiection also. The gentleman above
ssay-: "The general distribution of
Government physicians throughout
thcjlgroup, etc." Wc must admit
that the Government made some
wise provisions for the welfare of
the people when they took the latter
mentioned step, and we can cer
tainly not very well blame the Ad
ministration if their intentions are
not properly carried out. For ex
ample: Koloa is peopled with at
least 1000 inhabitants, and there is
only one medical doctor, the Gov
ernment physician, to look after the
sick, yet this gentleman is already
two weeks in Honolulu, with every
prospect that his stay there will be
extended for at least another week.
Our sick and dying are suffering
from the non-attendance of a phy
sician, for the nearest one is at Li
hue. Ought there not provisions to
be made, where in case of and dur
ing the absence of the regular Gov
ernment physician some other doc
tor slioukl take charge ol the prac
tice, so that those whose health and
life arc almost dependent on the ad
ministrations of a medical practi
tioner, might not be deprived of
such attendance, for it is tho failure
ot such that causes Koloa to be in a
high state of excitement at present.
