51? Euer?ir? Bulletin,
DANIEL LOGAN, Editor.
DEC. 9, 1895.
TotichorB in Honolulu bavo ro
ceived a circular signed by the
irosidout of tho Board of Educa
tion, which runs as follows:
In futnro no teacher is to bo
absent for any cause without im
mediate notificiition of tho Huard
In case of sickness the ofrico of
the Hoaid is to oh notified an
hour boforo school opens and a
Ml-tituto will be sent. Tho sub
stitute will be paid by the Board
for two days; after that timo,
should the sickness bo prolonged,
tho teacher will pay two-thirds of
his or her salary to tho substi
tute. This seems an exceedingly harsh
rtilo. Tho Board of Education
is displaying more strictnoBs to
ward teachers than the publio re
quiios at its bands. If it exercbo
disciplino in any case where a
tcocher is absont without good
cause, then the Board will do all
that it should be expected to do.
Supposo a toncber is fighting
against an attack of sickness, and
pluckily opens school only to
fiud that it is impossiblo to carry
on tho work for tho day? He
violates tho rulo of tho Board and
has a black mark pntugainst hitn.
It may bo said, though, that tho
rulo is to bo usd with discretion.
Iu answer to this the Bulletin
would say that whero a teaohor
has exruses to offer for not com
plying with the rulo an investiga
tion would bo necessary to enablo
tho Board to act with discretion.
Thorofore, why not wait for cases
of delinquency till tuny happen
and deal with each as they de
serve, instead of sending suoh an
oflbnsive circular to toacbers who
novor shirk their work as well as
to auy who may have given oc
casion for receiving a warning?
Then, again, the trcuttnont of
fered to toachors who may bo
laid up more than two days ap
pears to bo altogether too sovuro,
especially where suoh maladios as
fever and grip are prevalent.
Schools everywhere have to tako
their chances of toacbers being
taken ill, but for all of that which
happens in this country tho Board
has no occasion to dook tho pay
of tho uuiortunato teachers. There
has been no public demand for
having toachors thus troated like
contract coolies, and tho Board
will consult its own good uaineby
rescinding tha obnoxious order.
Some of our streets would do
with much less watering than they
rocoive. Cannot tho dust be laid
without making mud ?

"THE FREE AD" AND THE
SUPERIORITY OF THE
In our last advertisement in
this column we called atten
tion of the public to the
Stearns wheels which are now
being sold in this city. We
stated without fear of contra
diction that they were back
numbers, manufactured in 1894
and shipped to the Pacific
Coast as up to date wheels
when they are not. We rei
terate that assertion more for
cibly in this ad. It has not
been denied and cannot be,
and we again caution buyers J
not to oe ueceivea wun anti
quated machines which are
represented as containing all
the latest improvements.
An ad of the Stearns agency
in an afternoon paper, praising
the Tribune wheel and giving
it a good send-off, refers to a
letter written by H. F. Terrill,
the well-known scorcher, con
cerning the Tribune wheel.
In spite of their assertion to
the contrary, we deny that the
agents of the Stearns wheel
have seen or read the private
letter of Harry F. Terrill to the
Tribune rider here (meaning
Tommy King) but as there is
nothing secret about it we
print the whole of it relating
to bicycles below. If the
Stearns agents can get any
satisfaction out of it they are
more than welcome. Mr. Ter
rill says: l am riding a
Stearn, 16 lbs. Say, Tom, the
Tribune wheel has an awful
good reputation through the
East. I did not think much
of it before I came East.
It is considered one of the best
wheels in the world."
The balance of the letter
refers to private matters but
the Stearns agents may peruse
the whole of it at any time.
The explanation of ferrill's
riding a Stearns wheel lies in
the fact that he is under con
tract with the manufacturers
to do so, consequently he can
not ride a Tribune although it
is ev ident he would if he had
In our last advertisement we
asked any intending pur
chaser to take one of the
Stearns wheels to any first-class
mechanic and have him take it
apart and compare it with the
corresponding features of the
Tribune wheel. We knew that
an honest opinion would be
that the Tribune is by far the
better wheel and hence made
the challenge. We renew that
challenge and intend to keep it
before the public. It has not
been accepted and it will not
