A Debute In tho Sennto on the Pur-
dinning of the Illaliop Prctnl-
oh for Sclioal Purpoaea,
Forty-Eighth Day, Auqubt 8th.
Prosidont Wildor called tbo
Senato to order at tho regular
hour and tho usuil preliminaries
Ministor King reported that
tho prosidont hud approved tho
joint resolutions on general regis
tration and tho pa 5 mont of tho
Sonator Lyman from the Com
mittoo on Public Lands and In
ternal Improvements reported
adversely on tho two aots appro
priating $32,0U0 for tho purchaso
of tho Bishop premises on Emmu
stroot. Tho committoo roport
that from information obtained
from officio 1 quarters tho present
school houses are unablu to ac
commodate demands on school
space, room for 500 more
children being required than
can now attend. Thut there aro
are no facilities for educating
childron in primary studies, and
that accommodations aro noodod
for sovoral hundred of theso. The
School Board has nstrednt this
sossion for $20,000 for school
bouses and repairs and have been
voted $13,600 for immediate use.
Tho committee furthor say that
but slight expenditure would bo
needod on the Bishop promises,
but that tho expense of keeping
up such an elaborate building and
oxtensivo grounds would bo an
important and constantly increas
ing item of expense, The com
mittoo think that tho location is
too close to tho business part of
tho town and say that in a short
timo tho site will bo surrounilod
by business houses. They recom
mend Anally thut a plan bo c n
sidored involving an entirely new
and cheaper building on .a. differ
ent site to bo selected from land
owned by the government, so that
local mechanics andbusinessfirmB
may reap some bonefit from the
Tho roport was accepted to be
considered with tho bill.
Tho three repealing notii pre
sented by Ministor Hatch which
passod tho second reading yoster
day wore takon up on tho third
roading and passed unanimously.
Tho House amondmont to the
Tramways Company bill shorten
ing tho time in which oleotrioity
can bo used to September 1st,
189G, wns taken up and on motion
tho Senato refused to concur, and
a conference was asked for.
The request of the House for a
conforonco on tho alcohol bill wns
granted and the standing com
mittoo on commerce- was appoint
ed to act on behalf of tho Sonata.
Bills 18 and 19, uppropriuting
$32,000 for tho purchaso of tho
Bishop premises, wero then taken
up, on a motion to adopt tho re
port of tho Committee, a synop
sis of whoso report appoars above.
Ministor Damon in opposition
to tho roport of tho oommittee
said that tho education of tho ris
ing generation was tho most im
portant muttor now confronting
tho people of Hawaii. In a fow
years tho children now attending
sohool would become voters un
dor the prosont republican form of
government, and upon what im
pressions thoy rocoiv d at school
wmld largoly depend the futuro
of tho islands. Tho prosont school
boys woro tho ones who would
huvo to largoly dotormino futuro
local issues. Tho quostton of ed
ucation was most important taken
in conjunction with tho annexation
proposition, for tho very first in
quirios of,tho"Onited States Senato
would be directed to our educa
tional system and facilities. If
wo failed in annexation, thon
it behooved tho independent
Bopublic of Hawaii moro than
ovor to institute a pormanent
and porfect school system, and
tho work should bo commenced
at once so as to be in roadinoes for
either contingency. With regard
to tho matter immodiatoly beforo
tho Sonuto ho dosircd to stuto that
it was originally designed to
simply lease tho promises, but
owing to tho liboral offer made by
tho Bishop Trustees the plan was
ohangod. Ho wished it distinctly
understood that Mr. Bishop bad
no personal interest in the pro
mises other than as ono of tho
trustoos of tho estate. Tho
speaker thought tho property was
virtually a gift at $30,000. It
contained four and a quartor aoros
in tho heart of tbo city and is a
most advantageous locality. It
wns equidistant from all the out
lying districts and convenient to
tho street oar and proposed cablo
linos. He did not believe that
business housos vould roach the
property for yoara to come.
Whethor tho ncoo9sity for a high
sohool existed now or not was a
question for tho Sohool Board to
detormino. He himself was in
favor of using tho lower part of
the building for preparatory or
nrimarv,grfldoB- wnrl. Ihn. upper
story for the nucleus of a
high school. Ho did not
believe in starting off with
a full fledged high school under
present conditions but thought a
shirt should bo made und that it
should bo enlargodand improved as
future requirements should mako
nocessary. He maintained that
the purchaso of the promises
would relieve tho present pressure
on all tho schools in the city. Tho
lower lloor would accommouato
thoso of school age who at present
were dobarred from attending
school for want of room, while
the druft.ng of tho beat scholars
ot all the schools into tho high
sohool would rolieve tho over
crowding now existing thoro.
With regard to tho financial pro
position tho iJisuop premises were
most advantageous. To build
olsowhore would take money di
rectly from tho treasury at a time
whon it could illy bo sparod. Tho
Bishop purchaso'did not take a oont
except tho annual interest of G
per cent on the bonds. He
would state also that now that
tho stato of tho Hawaiian treasury
was mado known poopln woro in
vesting moro and moro frooly in
Sonator McCandless said ho
had looked into the mattor of
grounds and had found that tho
old rooreation grounds belonging
to tho government would be just
the place for a high school. Tho
Bishop plnco was good onough
for a residence and cheap enough
at tho prico for thut purpose, but
in his opinion unsuitod for n high
school, more especially when the
two new contemplated streets on
either side of tho property woro
put through and it would cost
about $2000 a year to keep the
place iu order. That money
would pay tho interest on a brick
or stone high school building cost
ing $50,000 or moro. Ho thought
tho intorosts of tho majority of
tho sohool childron should bo
lookod to before thoso of tho few
who would attend tho high sohool
and to whom similar advantages
woro now open in othor institu
tions. Mr. Dnraon said tho pasango of
tbos) bills would relievo all tho
presont necessities cf Honolulu
and leave tho government froo to
oxpond tho money which would
othorwiso havo to bo usod hero on
sohoolB for tho other islands
where ovororowding existed overy
whoro. Mr Hatch argued in favorof tho
Bishop location and of the pas
sage of tho bills.
Sonator Waterhouso was sur
prised that tho committoo after
reciting tho foots it had obtained
should havo roachod the conclu
sion it had. Ho thought it was a
good invostmont for tho govern
ment, ovon if thoy sold the pro-
mises ten years later. Any roal
estate man would jump at such a
Senator Lyman said tbo com
mitteo bad not considered tho
prico of the premises.
Thoy admitted al that
but thought that tho interests
of tho sohool children would bo
bettor subserved by oreoting more
suitable buildings olsowhore.
Sonator Bice said ho would call
attontion to tho report which
stated thoro aro aotually 500
children in Honolulu who are
without any educational facilities
whatever. Tho present state of
affairs could bo romedied by tak
ing the Bishop place, which could
bo put in readiness for school pur
poses by Soptembor 1st. While
Sonator McCandless' project was
a good one, ho thought that many
of tho presont school children
would bo gray-hoaded beforo it

was lost by tho following vote:
