MONDAY, AUGUST 18, 1810.
A letter from Mr Y O. Smith,
other communicatiot.s, and light
weight editorial matter arc deferred
throuuh weakness in the type-setting
STATE AID TO BOARDING SCHOOLS.
In a country like this, s the
people divided, as far as religion is
concerned, into various bodies or
beliefs, each holding that its tenets
constitute the ouly true faith, the
Government cannot justly recog
nise or favor any one in particular;
and in its schools, which arc pro
vided for all and open to all free of
charge, the exclusion of religious
teaching of a denominational char
acter is the only thing that can pos
sibly be half way acceptable to all.
The Government schools could not
teach all the religious beliefs repre
sented by the children attending
them, without a repetition of the
confusion we read about in connec
tion with the tower of llabcl ; and
to elect any particular one would
naturally and necessarily incur the
implacable displeasure of the ad
herents of all the others. The most
the Government can do, fairly and
justly, is what it has done, viz., al
low the religious teachers of each
and every denomination the use of
schoolrooms, out of regular school
hours, for imparting religious in
struction to the children of their
No man of sense and reflection
can hold that it is the duty of the
Government to include denomina
tional religious teaching in its
school curriculum, because he
knows that he is then confronted
with the question, 'What religion?'
and the believers in each, with equal
rights, stand up for their own.
Where and when the Government
has provided for the youth of the
nation the means of a secular edu
cation it has fulfilled its duty, and
the religious element, being a mat
ter of conscience, should be left to
the churches. Iletice, generally
speaking, we regard the appropria
tion of public money for denomina
tional schools as wrong.
But there may be times and places
when exceptional conditions of
a community and special legitimate
considerations warrant and even
demand a departure from the gen
eral principle just now laid down.
We hold that such conditions and
such considerations are present in
the Hawaiian Kingdom. We have
quite a number of schools belonging
to different religious denominations,
which schools do special work in the
way of civilizing Hawaiian youth,
independent of religious teaching.
Reference is made to the various
boarding schools in Honolulu and
elsewhere in the islands. Domes
tic habits and practices which arc
the very soul of Western civiliza
tion are acquired in these Behoofs,
that cannot bo imparted other than
to a very limited extent by the
It must be remembered that most
Hawaiian children in their homes are
without those beneficial educating
influences which ordinarily surround
children of foreign parentage. These
influences, wanting in their homc3,
they find in the boarding schools.
Now, will anyone dispute that it
is a duty, and an important duty, of
the government to endeavor, by all
weans iu its power, to advance the
youth of the nation to the standard
of civilization reached by the most
enlightened peoples of tho world?
Believing that this point is pretty
generally conceded, we uslc, should
not, the government Ujcm uffovcl
every encouragement! even lo tliu
extent of monetary assistance, lo
agencies working intelligently in this
direction, when these agencies do
that part of the work which tho
government is not doing, and is not
prepared to do? Yes, is clearly tho
Our conclusion from the foregoing
is that the denominational boarding
schools arc deserving of, and should
have if they need it, reasonable
government aid, not because they
are Roman Catholic, or English
Episcopalian, or Presbyterian, or
anything else which indicates church
control ; but because they are doing,
and doing well, aworkof paramount
good for the nation, a wotlc that is
being done by them only.
WHAT WOULD HE HAVE.
Eoitou Hcmxtis :
A correspondent iu the Daily
Ui'llktix of the loth, is quite offen
ded that the secrotsuy of the Ha
waiian Evangelical Association
should speak the truth iu his report
of this year. What would lie have?
A false report would be worse than

mon people should cacli have a free
hold. If they also were fortunate
enough to leave a few acres for their
children, was it not a commendable,
If the Hawaiian is less abie lo hold
land in fee simple, less provident by
nature and by training, lets the
kuleana slip from his grasp, was it
the fault of the missionary fathers
who laboied lor his benefit, who
urged the common man, sometimes
without success, to buy land while
1 am personally acquainted with
those vho refused to buy land when
they could get it for the cost of the
papers, who now pay more rent an
nually than the land would have
cost at first. They now see the
wisdom of the missionary land agent
in striving for their temporal as well
as spiritual good.
Would "Wheat" have the mis
sionary children all decamp as fast
as they grew up, and, like Gen.
Armstrong and others, throw the
weight of their influence only in the
It seems to me that fairly looked
at, we have nothing to blame in the
general conduct of our missionary
sugar planters, except that vorpora
tion for the benefit of the laborer as
well as the small capitalist might, if
carried on in the true spirit of
brotherhood, be more-beneficial.
THE CIVIL SERVIGE BILL.
Editor Huxu.tin" :
An editorial in the Gazette of
Aug. 12th on Rep. Marques' Civil
Service Bill unjustly and unquali
fiedly denounces all who voted the
National Reform ticket as belonging
to the spoliation party, because had
they not been successful at the
polls, such a bill would never have
been brought before the legislature.
It is more than probable that a very
large majority of those who voted
that ticket were as sincere and
honest in their convictions that that
party platform was the one to sup
port, because it expressed or implied
their idea of what should be done uy
the government, as those who voted
the Reform ticket. The idea, of
dividing the spoils if successful
never occurred to them, nor was it
brought forward by any of the
leaders of the party "as one of the
That there were men in both
parties who hoped for a division of
the spoils were they successful, can
not be denied, as they were foolish
enough to publicly boast that should
their party be successful there would
be a place made for them; but
these were exceptions, and for the
Gazette to make such a sweeping
assertion is not only unjust but
No greater corruption could exist
than in the ranks of the very parly
represented by the Gazette. More
bribes were offered for votes by
promising positions under govern
ment, than the National Reform
party iu its proudest and mo3t san
guine mood would have dared to
offer, knowing as they did that their
opponents not only represented the
wealth of the country, but wero in
possession of the government, also
all the places of emolument In its
gift, and there was only a baro
possibility of electing their candi
dates. Uy all means let us have a Civil
Service Act, if it will root out the
boodlers and incompetent lickspittles
that now enjoy the spoils of the re
volution of 1887, and who have been
conspicuous representative of tho
Reform party in its questionable poli
tical work, and whoso only qualifi
cation for oflicc is their subservience
to tho party's will.
If Rep. Marques' bill does not
meet the requirements (and then)
are oortuinly defects iu it), it is a
step in the right direction. Careful
revision by a competent committee
can ronko the bill what it should be,
and then it will no doubt recoivo tho
support of all who desire to seo a
change for tho better in this much
abused publio service.
One who Voted tiik Snuirsm- Rk
Maui, Aug. 10,
MR. KALUA DISSEHT8 FROM THE
P. C. A.
The P. C. Advertiser of Inst R.t
turday attempts to ridicule the
natives who presented to tho King
tho petition for a chango of the Con
stitution. I have read the words
of the Editor, and state that many
of my friends consider the slur tif
tho Advertiser mean ai.d uncalled
If this son of an honored father,
this young man who was born hero,
can do nothing better tlinn lo insult
the natives who aie only exercising
their light's, he would' have been
moie decent and wise If he had
staid abroad. The natives perhaps
do not know as much politics and
many other things which this young
man protends to know as he, but
they know enough not lo be guided
by him, and to look upon his in
sults with contempt.
We have something to say in Ibis
country as yet, and l should like to
know if this insnlter of our people
would have dared to nbiiM' in title
shameless way the people of any
other country timmtgwhom he might
live as n stranger. Never mind
whether the people who want the
Constitution altered are sensible or
not, they have a light to express
their wish in a peaceful and orderly
way, without being attacked by lid's
native-hating newspaper. Such
language as it used will not restore
the friendship which once existed
between I ho natives and the decent
foreigners. If the man who speaks
through the Advertiser docs it to
make money and nothing more, I
can understand why he abuses us
in this way, but tiiis is not tho kind
of talk that is good or useful foi
our country. Jonx W. Kali v.
