It litis lipconw quilo evident,
sIiicp this pnpir cipi'nod the linll
utriiiiifit mi extension of (ho enblo !
rnncliiBQ, that tho boiiho of tho
community in overwhelmingly op
posed to tho propoHtil. Tho Gov
orniiiont cannot ontcrtniu the pro
posul in tho faco o this adverse
public opinion. An extension o
tho franchise would bo oimply
Hhutliii tho country out, for n
further period, from practical bid
dors for a cable contract. Very ox
not estimates of tho cost of a cnblo
and its probablo rovonues huvo
boon nmdo by oxpnrts inEugland,
which show that it would bo n pay
ing concorn oven tho first year of
operntion.Tlioroforeit i8 vory likoly
that practical eablo mon nro ready,
and even eager, to contract for tlio
work whenovor a dofinito proposi
tion from authoritative quarters
ib published. Ilawaii should bu
very careful about granting oithor
long term or exclusive franchises
in the matter, or alio may block
herself oil' tho lino of any cablo
that may bo laid first, or, getting
a station horo on tho lino, may
shut herwolE out for many years
from tho advantages of competi
tion that is bound to comu boforo
Jong in Pacific telegraphs for
round the world business. In
Bluail of throwing our privileges
for u cable station into tho hands
of self seeking speculators, it
would bo bottor for us to offer a
guarantee of tho interost on capi
tal for laying a cable to San
Francisco. Other governmoutu
would most likely speedily follow
the plucky example by offering
similar encouragomeutfor extend
ing the lino to either Australia or
Japan or both. In nn exhaustive
at tide on the English cablo pro
ject, which appeared lately in an
electrical journal of England, it
was calculated that tho guarantee
of interest by tho Imperial and
"Colonial governments would co9t
the guarantors nothing, as
tho cablo would pay dividends
from the very out6et.Ot course this
would hardly bo expected from a
local line between horo. and Am
orioa, but such a lino would doubt
less not bo long without exten
sions to bring it into a circuit of
isoiitn or KiiL'o.vTiox.

President Smith said tho ques
tion boforo tho mooting was how
the new school should bo suppliod
with pupils and called upon Mr.
Sooll to give his opinion first.
The Doputy Inspector Gouoral
said ho had formulated no plan iu
tho matter. Ho suggested, how
over, that owing to the overcrowd
ed condition of tlio Berotauia
street school, a largo proportion
of its pupils should bo transferred
to tho Praotico School.
Mr. Dumas at onco throw down
the gauntlet by protesting against
tho project of merely using tho
Practice School to icjiove tho
overflow from tho oUmmu. It was
not what was contemplated iu its
ostublishmont. Children should
bo picked from onoh of tho two
lower grades of nrhonla iu tho

Mr. Armstrong Smith said thn
plan of picking children ftoiu tho
dilToront schools was not prac
tical iu any sense of the word.

A desultory discussiou then en
sued, in which tho question of
whether the pupils of tho now
school should bo boys only or
whether both Bexss should attend
was raised and argued pro and

thanked for their attendance and
Aftor duo consideration the

that for tho present
tlio attendance at tho Practice
