THE LATE JUDGE.
Judgo Austin bolonyed to a
family of jurists, lie was ovory
inch a judgo in dignity and de
meanor, whilo his integrity was
nn impeachable. Ilis decisions
havo generally been affirmed by
tho appellato court, and lawyois
had nothing but rospect for his
attainments. In tho relations of
privato lifo ho was universally bo
loved, and not merely in tho
urbanity that people havo a right
to expect in a judge, but by an
unfeigned expression of cordial

At tho latest meeting of tho
Commissioners of Education tho
question was mooted of having a
new ditrorcntiation in tho select
school establishment. If tho idea
is to create socinl class distinctions
in tho schools whore tuition feeB
aro charged, the proposition
ought to be opposed as repugnant
to tho equality that Bhould reside
iu a properly constituted republic.
It would furthor bo objectionable
as emphasizing tho oxception to
freo schools which thus far, since
tuition fees woro aboli&bed in tho
schools, it lias bnen deemed expe
dient to maintain in Honolulu.
Most peoplo hopo tho timo is not
far distant when tho exception
may be abolished and free schools,
including an academy on every
populous island, may bo tho nn
brokou rulo. Tho creation of dis
tinctions within tho solect or pay
schools might tond to retard that
consummation. On tho other
hand, if the idea of the suggestion!
roferred to is to extend the presont
select school establishment oil ac
count of pressure in tho accom
modations, it is hard to see how
such a thing can bo avoided so
long as tho expediency of having
a pay school subdivision is con
sidered necessary under the pecu"
Har conditions hero existing.
"When the schools in general woro
made freo it did not need class
motives to havo an exception made
of tho Fort-street school. With
its oxcolleut grading and system
and good equipment, tho making
it freo would certainly havo caus
ed tho school to bo swamped.
Children would havo been drawn Premier Laurier of Canada has
from the privato schools in mini- promised a deputation of tho
bers to crowd Fort-street school , Dominion Alliance, that tho Gov
boyond its capacity. Doubtless eminent would fulfil its election
thero was an element of class dis
tinction in having that school
kept on a pay footing, but it was
not class distinction in the ordi
nary acceptation of tho term.
Thero is a mixture of nationalities
in this city that places children
born to the English language at a
groat disadvantage in being taught
along with children who havo to
learn English in school. Tho
fees charged in tho Beloct schools
are a protection to tho English
Bpeaking children. Abolition of
fees could therefore only be ad
vised, for tho present, iu conjunc
tion with a system whoroby child

' President Dole has returned

than 1000 natives. Many of these
had been royalists from 1893.
Upon hearing from Mr. Dole iu

The foregoing is from the Ho
nolulu correspondence of the San
Francisco Chronicle It does not
require even Bullen indifference,
! not to mention disloyalty, toward
tho republic for anyone who knows
tho truth to denounce tho state
ment quoted as an utter false
hood. If moro than a thousand
natives on Maui gayo in their
allegianco to the republic, there
would bo evidence for it in a sen-
Lsationally large addition to the

Before Whitelaw Reid be
came Ainister to France he
devoted a good deal of his
time to the conduct of his pa
per, the Tribune. The copy
editors who put up the head
lines of stories of the day fell
into the habit of making most
of them interrogative, as, for
instance, "Was it murder or
suicide?" or "Did she kill him
for love?" or "Will the Presi
dent sign it?" etc.
The whole paper was speck
led with interrogative points.
The thing had been going for
weeks, till one day a postal ar
rived, addressed to Ar. Reid,
and marked personal. It read
"I'm getting awful tired of
your questions. Why don't
you find out something? A
great newspaper is supposed to
know eveiything, and ought
not to annoy its readers with
needless inquiries. This morn

Piatt consent?" How the h-1

that the Tribune must ask few
