At yenierdrtj's meeting of the
Commissioners of Education thoro
were present Professor Alexander,
Mrs. Dillingham, Mis. Jordan,
W. A. Boweu, Deputy-Inspector
Scott and Secretary Rbdgors.
Iu tho absence of Minister
Cooper Professor Aloxander pre
sided. Tho minutes of last meeting
were read and approved.
Dopttty Inspector-General Scott
arose and iu a few remarks, wliilo
looking straight at tho Bulletin's
representative, called attontion to
tho heinous offense of a cortuin
reporter in publishing the pro
ceedings of the Board at the last
meeting in relation to the pro
posed increase in AnuhtroLg
Smith's salary, claiming that 6neh
matters wore entirely personal and
innibting that if ivpoiters would
not keep such thiugs out of print
they hhmild be cousideied in oxo
cutive session. As Mr. Scott is
not. a member of the board and no
ono cIho had anything further to
say on tho subject the reporter
was not much hurt, but ho is
not yot convinced that tho
amount of Armstrong Smith's or
any other teacher's salary is not
ot intorost to tho taxpayers.
Tho request of Miss Finckler
for two days additional at the
Eastor vacation in order to mako
steamer connections was grnuted.
Mr. Mills, Bchool ngont at South
Koua, wrote tho board about the
difficulty ho has in keeping track
of his truant officers and enclosing
some blank roports ho requires
them to mnko to him. Tho Board
thought Mr. Mills' idea was good
onougli to bo adopted by all school
agonts and will probably order
somo bluukB printed on his plan
and havo regular roports mndo to
nil school agents.
In tho mattor of tho proposed
school at Puuliuo, Hawaii, a mo
tion provniled establishing a
school thereat, tho petitioners to

appointment of tho latter was re
