In u circular formerly issued by this
Hoard on the subject of religious teaching
in schools, reference was made to tho fact
that in the statutes relating to tho Bureau
of Publia Instruction it is provided that no
person in holy orders or minister of religion
shall be eligible to fill tho offlco of President
of tbo Board of Education or of Inspector
Again, article 97 of the existing Constitu
tion declares that ' ' no public money shall
bo nppiopriatod nor public land conveyed
o or for tbe support or benefit of any m.c
ariau, denominational orprUato school,"
The evident intoutiou of tlicso pi o vision
that thero shall bo no religious teaching
n the publio schools supported by tho Gov
ernment, but that they shall remain strictly
non-sectarian and soculir.
. Tho school buildings should therefore bo
UBod only for purposes pertaining to the
publio education of the children of tho
country. Accordingly, tho permission
formerly given to the School Agents "to ar.
ran go with tbe clergymen of any religiounde.
nomination to allow them the use of the Gov
ernment school houses af ter 2 o'clock p. m.,
for a timo not decoding one hour, oncoa
week for each donomiuitlofi applying, for
tho religious instruction of such scholars as
may choose to ottoud" is hereby revoked.
This Board does not, however, consider
it inconsistent with the priuciplo stated
above, to continue the practice of opening
tho schools every morning by repeating
tho Lord's proyor in unison.
The School Law also declares that "The
object of tho common schools supported
by Government is to instruct tho children
of tho nation in good morals," which in
cludes houesty, truthfulness, obedionco to
parents and teachers, respect for superiors
in ago slid position, patriotism, kindnesw,
benovolehce, helpfulness to tho weak and
tho unfortunate, humanity to animals, per
sonal cleanliness, modesty, chastity, temp
erance nud other virtues, which should he
taught by precept, illustration and example
at all times.
No profune or itidecent languago should
bo allowed in (lie school prcmibes or on the
way to or from school.
Special Instructions should lso 1m given
on the evil effects of the use of alcohollo
driuks an I of narcotics.

FAKE AFTER ALL.
It now looks very much as if
the filibustering aolieruo thnt tho
San Franoisco Olironiolo dis
covered was uftor all imiir ly a
put-up job by professional sharp
ers to wecure good Hawaiian Gov
ernment money for fabricated
information. It is easy to iinu
gino that somo of the drift olo
nienfc .tt the Coast might huvo boon
inado to bolievo that the schomo
was gonuine, and tho securing of
dupes of this s irt would bo half
tho game of the smooth scound
rols, as getting them fur enough
along to lead in tho talking
would produce excellont counter
feit evidenco of reality. Probably
tho two men in jail hero are dunes
of this kind, whoso cranky concoit
led thorn to act on thoir own
account tho important part of
reconnoitering tho field. Thore
is plenty of ovidonco available
that tho Government spies, lator
oflicially rtcognizod aucl signally
rewarded as Hucti.lmd a groat deal
to do in fomenting the iusurtction
of January, 1805. For fully a your
provious thoy worked unon those
regarded as "le.idtng royalists,"
foreign as well us native, craftily
representing how weak was tho
position of tho Govommpnt, and
how precarious its tenure of ex
istence. Some, evon in spite of
warnings, nibbled at tho bait, and
when tho pot at last boiled, these
wore pull id out of tho stew and
sent to cool their heels in jail.
Sun Francisco merchants and
raanufactuiers, it will be soon by

waii, and what already has ap
peared of it is likoly to
be multiplied. Bebidos tho
largo number of Japuueso tradois
established horo, who bring the
merclmudisH of thoir country into
sevcro competition with imports
from tho United States, other
local merchants aro going to ring
in ohoap goods from Japan, ns if
to fight firo with fire. It is learned
that a loading retail doalor in
dry goods and mon's furnishings
is shortly to muko a trip to Japan
for the purposo of buying largo
stooks of merchandise. Thore if
no saying how largoly his example
will bo followed by Amorican and
British store-keopors hero. It
may soon bocotim as common, in
tho personal items of tho local
papers, to see thai S i-mid-so has
gone to Japun, "combining busi
ness with ploasuro,'' as it is now
to have s mil.ir information re
garding departures for tlio
Paoifio Coast. Tho ques
tion is otia that must bo con
sidered here, if the reciprocity
treaty with tho Unitod States is
the most valuible possession of
tlio country as many regard it.
Tanfi change to effect a remedy
would, howovor, have to bo con
sidered with extreme care, as
anything in that way that would
increase the cost of many articles
of common consumption might be
a cure worse than tho d.senso.
Treaty relations with Japan
forbid discrimination of ta
riif against hor produots, ex
cepting the negative sort in
volved in tho list of imports from
the Unitod States free by tho re
ciprocity treaty. It is under
stood in international affairs that
one country cinnot claim of a

D. H. Hitohcock, who often
represented Hawaii in the Legis
lature, mado a strong appoal in
tho Hilo Tribuno of December
28, for tho election of the local
candidato, H. L. Holstein, in
proferonce to a Honolulu man.
Among other things ho says:
"Tho beach road from Honolulu
to "Waikiki is, to a Honolulu
man, of greater importance than a
cart road into tho wilds of Puna;
it is, by far, better to spond$100,
000 on enlarging and,improving
Honolulu hnrbor, than it is to
spond $50,000 in building a
wharf in Hilo harbor." It
did seem strange to boo tbo " con
servative" homo -rule party of
Hilo bicking up tho Honolulu
man, ublo nnd oxporionood a 8
ho is in publio affairs, in pre
ference to a local man.
It would soon that a propensity
to suicido is devoloping among
nativos, with throo casts, of which
two woro successful, oconrring
within a fow weoks. Apart from
spooific causes there is no doubt
that a lnmontablo Bpirit of dis
courugemont porvades tho native
population, over thoir exclusion
from a sharo in the control of tho
affairs of their country through
disinclination to accopt tho
new ordor of things. Thoso
who havo tho welfaro of tho Ha

to porsuade thorn to embraco the

Christmas is over but there
are plenty of ducks and turkeys
flying about the ponds, marsh
es and woods of these islands,
and there are plenty of hunters
who will take advantage of
the numerous holidays between
now and Washington's birth
day to try and get a shot at
them. To insure a good bag
of game on one of these trips,
the hunter must have a good
gun, good ammunition and
good dogs. The Hawaiian

you out with a gun and am
munition and if you haven't
got a good dog why you can
boiTow one. We make a spe
cialty of reloading outfits,
