Prhicipnl Osmcr Abbott of tho

Board. Ho wanted leave of ab

study pedagogy under a colebrnt

bott nlfao informed the Board that
his knowledge of tho Germnu

but ho thought ho would bo nblo
to pick up enough ot the lnnguago
bolwoon now and tho timo ho got
to Jona to bo able to listen to tho
professor's lectures in German nnd
profit by them exceedingly. Mr.
Abbott nlso thought that tho
Board ought to grant his applica

somothing new for n Hawaiian

grnuting n leave of absence for
such an oxtondod period, tho
Board decided to let Mr. Abbott
have his own way in tho mutter,
with tho understanding thnt he
will receive no pay while absont.
The matter of providiug his sub
stitute wns left until ho loaves, but
Mr. Rosccrans will undoubtedly
be the man.
President Cooper road a com
munication from J. F. Brown, tho
Commissioner of Publio Lands,
relating to tho pehool lands at
Wnhinwn, some -1000 ncres in ex
tent. Mr. Brown asked that tho
Commissioners of Education turn
theso lands ovor to tho Laud Do
pnrtment as thoy woro useless
for school purposes, nnd ho
hnd several applications on file
for the lands from persons who
wanted to start small farms. Mr.
Browu further slated that nbout
1200 ncres of tho laud was huita
blo for thnt puiposn, the balance
being roughly wooded country.
Mr. von Holt doubted if Mr.
Brown had ovor seen tho land.

bent such a eotnniuuieiitiou to tho
Board. It was Ins opinion thnt

Mrs. Dillingham corroborated
much that Mr. Holt said about
tho character of the land.
"Thero is auotbor and moro

mattor," resumed Mr. Holt.
"Those lands may somo day bo

ought to havo it. Tho Board got
nothing out of it nnywny. Ho

Minister Cooper: "There is

to hint us nine months, and
I for ono do uot propose to abow

Minister Cooper further ex
plained his viows, saying that

A joint committee of tho Scot
tish Thistle Club and Cantnin
Cook Lodge of tho Sons of St.
George was appointed to con
suler the question of n popular
celebration of tho event. This
connniltuo did nothing but oeud a
dulegato to consult with II. 11.
M.'s Commissioner Hawos on the
matter. A very satisfactory inter
view with the Queen's ropresont
utivo was hnd, he ovinoiug un
feigned pleasure at tho dosiro for
a popular celebrntion. Tho most
fitting day of tho nino sot npurt in
England Juno 20 to June 28
was discussud but not final

aituougn no named tho data that
seemed to hiui tho most nupropri

without receiving any snggeotion
of such kindness, declared that
whatever function he should do
oido to hold nt the Legation,, for
signalizing tho unprecedented
event in British history, would be

Commissioner Htiwes of course

It should be stated, iu correction
of anothor published orror, that
tho Queen's birthday on May 21

Tho ovent to bo signalized is tho
