Editor Bulletin: In ray lot
ter yesterday I pointed out how
tho Sohool Bill now boforo tho
House will on becoming law bo a
menace to certain schools. Thoro
is another point of view from
which it should boregardod, that
is from the parents.'
In a froo country evoryono on
jovB tho right of choosing .tho
schools to whiob ho will Bond his
children to bo educatod. If aftor
paying his taxes townrdn tho sup
port of tho public schools, ho pre-
fors to p.iy for the education of
his children at sotno independent
school, he is ot liberty to do so
without nny interference by tho
state with the choice that ho
makes. But, if this bill becomes
law, seo what may happen. A
graduate in honours in ono of tho
Universities opens a sohool in.
Honolulu, and obtains tho patron
ago of tho lending oitizons of the
Islands. Ho fails, howovor, to
obtain tho npproval of the Board,
oithor because ho has not taken
tho oath to support the oligarchy,
or booause ho has not complied'
with some rule presently to bo
issued. What is the consequence ?"
In the eye of tho law the children,
at his sohool aro not nt school.
They may bo receiving tho best
education in tho Islands, but for
all thnt the law regards them as
truants, and doals with them ac
cordingly. Are tho merchants
and citizens of Honolulu prepared,
to submit to this ? If so, then,
farowell to tho last vestifio of liberty
from those shores.
