to tho chair. Othors prosont wore
Mrs. Dillingham, Mrs. Jordan,
Mossrs. yon Holt and Bowon,
mombors, Deputy Inspector Gon
oral Scott and Secretary Iiodgors,
and u Bulletin roportor who had
tho temerity to put in an ap
pearance At the hour appointed for tho
mooting tho roportor started to
enter the room in which tho meet
ings woro hold, whim Secrotary
Bodgors stopped him saying:
"You can't go in thore, they urn
having a private meeting." Aftor
cooling his heels in tho main ofBco
for some time, the secrotary for
getting to ask him to take a Heat
whilo waiting, Deputy Inspector
Scott emerged from tho Star
Chamber and told tho secretary
tho 'Commissioners were ready to
hoar him read his minutes. The
roporter followed thom insido
without invitation and was
courteously given tho uso of tho
Doputy Inspector's chair and desk
by that official. Tlierd were no
other reporters present.
After the reading of the
minutes of last meoting tho acting
president read in a very low
voice a communication of which
tho roportor caught only a word
hero and there. As near as he
could make out it was an offer
from W. J. Lowrie of tho Ewa
plantation to givo $400 worth of
now lumbor for tho school lot and
building at Halawa.
Mr. von Holt wanted to bo sure
if tho word lot was raontionod.
Being informed that it surely
was, ho said he had never under
stood that tho lot was in tho trado.
Ho supposed it was only tho old
Othor mombors coincided with
Mr. von Holt, who was then asked
if ho would examine tho propor
ty aud roport on tho offor.
Mr. von Holt intimated that it
would take a day to do it. Ho
thought ho was doing pretty well
to servo as a commissioner without
pay and that such matters should
be loft to tho paid officials.
Mr. Scott said ho was acquaint
ed with tho Bchoolhouse and its
value. It hod boon cvilod nino
years ago at a cost of 1800. Thoro
was nothing tho matter with tho
building, it was in good ropair,
had a good roof aud, with tho ex
ception of one sill which had boon
laid on tho ground and lrnd rottod,
tho building was about as good as
over. Even at tho presont low
prices in tho building trado ho
doubtod if it could bo replaced for
S1200. Besides, if a new sill was
put in, tho building could bo
moved at any tirao.
Othor mombors of tho Board
stated that land in that viciuity
was daily becoming more valuable
and that tho lot alone was worth
moro than tho prico offered.
Tho matter was roforred to tho
Doputy-Inspootor for further in
vestigation and report.
A communication was noxt read
from J. C. Lonhart or Bernhardt,
tho reporter could not catch tho
name, of tho Kalaoa school on
Hawaii, who callod the attention
of the Board to the urgont neod of
moro accommodations. Tho ro
porter could hoar only a littlo of
what was road but caught on to
tho statement that tho aisles be
twoon the seats in tho school woro
only 10$ inches wide. The Board
ordered that Suporintendont
Townsond bo notified by today's
mail to go thoro and investigate
Miss Kolsey, who rocently wrote
asking to be trausforrod to Hono
lulu from her presont school, had
nnothor lottor in this week. In
tho ovout of hor failuro to got a

tho Makaweli school, which she
understands will be vacant, lto-!
ferred to tho Teachers' Commit
tee. At this juncturo Doputy In
speotor Scott was sent for by
Bomoono in tho outer room.
Ho returned in a moment or
two and a whispored conver
sation took placo between him
and Professor Alexander, at tho
ond of which the professor turn
ed his chair round so as to see the
roportor aud said: "You will
havo to fro out. Tho Board wants
to go into executive session.''
The Deputy Inspector kindly saw
the scribe outside, whispering his
condolence and mentioning that
tho Board had somo socrot busi
ness to transact with Mr. Lowrie.
Ab tho roporter stopped out, the
gonial manager of Ewa plantation
stopped in apd the door closed.
Attei wuiliug' u lew minutes
and seeing no signs of tho socrot
mooting coming to an ond the re
porter withdrow, wondering on
tho' way homo whether tho public
had any right to know tho naturo
of Mr. Lowrio'B socrot business
at a publicly called mooting of tho
Commissioners of Education, or
whother tho public had any right
to know anything at all about tho
proceedings of the Commissioners
Tn thin connection it nifty not
bo amiss to stato some of the
difficulties experienced by tho re
porters in their efforts to inform
the public of what is going on be
hind tho scenes in the Depart
ment of Education. Porhaps
acting undor ordors, Secretary
Iiodgors haB no uso for reporters,
treating thom almost uniformly in
a brusque and at times discourte
ous manner. Thore aro no ac
commodations whatever provided
for thom in tho board room, whero
everything is arrunged with a
view of discouraging their attend
ance. Thoro is no room for
tho roportors at tho main
table and tho only other articles
of furnituro in tho room are a
small table and tho Doputy In
spector's privato desk. Both of
these aro behind tho president's
chair and somo distance away.
Mr. Scott courteously gives up his
desk to tho first roporter who
comes, tho noxt haB to tuko the
littlo table.which is generally cov
ered with books, whilo if a third
comes ho either has to stand or
squoezo in at the main tablo be
tween tho members, whioh is un
ploasant for both, Thoro is no
roason why tho main tablo cannot

This is tho plan adopted by the

as tho meetings of tho Commis

ducted this is an utter impossibi

that ono high in authority rathor

President Dole was seon yester
day oveniug on' his way to Wai
kiki. Ho siiiil that tho Jnpuuoso
steamer Kinai had not been grant
ed her clearance papors up to that
time. It was determined to havo
a thorough iuvidtigatiou into tho
origin of the smallpox cases
among tho passongors brought by
f'o Kinai and now in quarautino
before permitting tho steamer to
If there was no sickness on tho
passage, tho President sukl, a
serious question was raised. Tho
outbreak at tho quarautino station
would then upset conclusions
of tho medical faculty held
firmly for many years. Whilo
it was true thu tho germs
of smallpox were carried in
clothing, yot all tho clothes of
these passengors had beou fumi
gi.:ui oeforo leaving Japan and
again ou arrival hero.
It might havo been, howovnr,
that thoro woro cases of varioloid
so light as not to require their
subjects being confined to their
bunks. You know that a light cobo
of varioloid will communicate
tho disease, and tho one taking it
havo a moro sovoro typo according
to his physical conditions. Thoso
Japanese having been all vaccin
atod before leaving Japan woro,

Tlfeso views of President Dolo
fit with the fact that tho cases in
quarantino are of a mild typo. It
would indeed bo a marvol of col
loctivo docoptiou if tho officers of
tho stoamer agreed upon a fatso
statement of tho doath occurring
on board, and secured tho solid
evidence of nearly soron hundred
snnplo minded witnesses to back
it. That there should not bo a
break in the uniform answers of
so many people, when subjected
to a sovoro individual questioning,
makes tho statement of the officers
appear worthy of belief. If that
unfortunate man had not fallon
down tho hutohway, and if thoro
had boon noticoablo sickness
among either crow or passengers,
it is almost impossible that tho
truth would not have leaked out
somowhero in such a great crowd,

deep oftifial probing.
In addition to tho foregoing
tokons of voracity iu tho stoamer's
roport is the fact given in this
papor yestorday, namely, that thu
officors, whon confidentially ques
tioned by the agouts, gavo strong
assurances that thoro had been no
sickness on tho voyago.
Tho Warrimoo that is expeclod
hoio April 1G from Victoria will

piuo with the consignment that
tho Anchor will havo on tap after
tho arrival of tho Warrimoo. Tho
roason for this is that tho Book

Thcso are days of considerable
anxiety and porploxity to all who

for Annexation appear at presont

Tho dinning room was tastefully
decorated with largo Hawaiian

Mr. Takedznwa, of tho Yoko

of tho Legation had beou invited
on behalf of tho Japanoso resi

tho occasion of tho promotion of
tho Consulate-General to a Lega

gratifying, bincelho establishment
of the Legation here must bo duo
to tho fnct that tho importance of
the residents here.thoir rights and
