Minister Cooper presided at tho
regular meeting of the Commis
sioners of Education, there being
in attendance Professor Alexander,

Mrs. B. F. Dillingham and Mrs.
E. W. Jordan, members, Deputy

After the reading of the minutes
of last meeting the Committee on .
Teachers stated they had no ro
port to make.
The' Deputy-Inspector reportod
verbally on bis visit to the new
Oahu plantation, where be was
Bhown the proposed new site
offered by Manager Ahrens. He
bad also examined a school site
already belonging to tho depart
ment. This latter site answered
all the requirements, being situat
ed only three-eighths of a mile
from the site of tho new mill. Tho
lot was known as the Waipio
Bohool land and contained a little
over an acre, about 60,000 squaro
feet. There was an old school
building on tho premises in a di
lapidated condition. Ho also found
a very neat little cottage on tho
land, kept in very good order
and newly painted. Ho also saw
preparations for the building of
an addition to this cottage or a
separate one. The cottage was
occupied by a native named Ea
ananui, who said it was bis own.
He had built it and occupied it
for nine years. He claimed a
Eortion of the land around the
ouse bnt when asked about the
balance of the lot said be did not
know who owned it. The Board
decided to notify Mr. Kaananui to
get off the land or produce his
title and the seoretary was in
Mr. Scott then went on to relate
that he had visited the sohool
house at Waiawa for which tho
Board had been offered $-100 in
lumber. He found tho building
in excellent condition. He had
taken an expert on moving build
ings with him and they estimated
that the sohool house could be cut
in sections and moved to the
Pearl city lot and an additional
room built on to meet actual re
quirements for tho Bum of $1200.
The building itself was in splen
did condition except one sill
which had been laid on the
ground. After some discussion it
was understood that the plan sug
gested by Mr. Scott will be adopt
ed, and the item of $1200 to carry
out the project went down
in Minister Cooper's notobook, to
be included in the appropriations
to be asked of tho next Legisla
ture for Bohool houses.
Mr. Scott next asked tho Board
to settle definitely the question of
a holiday for the school children
on Monday, May 24. There should
be some understanding about it so
that tho schools would not got in
to the muddle they did on Wash
ington's birthday, when somo
schools did not open at all, others
only for an hour or two, others for
half a day, while in one or two
the scholars were kept all day.
Tho trouble came, Mr. Scott
thought, from tho publication of a
notico that tho government build
ing would bo closed on February
22. Sohool teaohors thought they
were government employes and
entitled to a holiday if those who
worked in the government build
ings got one.
Minister Cooper said no By
Authority notice bad been pub
lished stating that Washington's
birthday had been proclaimed a
holiday and appealed to the re-
gbrters present to sustain him.
q was informed that Minister
King had caused a notioe to be
Eublished that tho Executive
uildiug would bo closed for tho
day, which meant a holiday for its
Minister Cooper replied that
tho Executive building was
a part of the Executive
and was closed as a mark
of respect to tho occasion. It
would probably bo closed on the
Queen's birthday but that con
cerned only tho ono building.
Mr. Cooper was then informed
that the postoffico was olosed all
day on Washington's birthday,
with tho exception of an hour on
account of a steamer.
"And the Custom House too,"
said ono of the Board, "those peo
ple novor miss a cbanco to close
Minister Cooper said the de
partment could not grant a whole
or even a half holiday on the
Queeu's birthday, because it
would bo establishing a precedent,
which would require equal
courtesies on tho birthdays of tho
Emperor of Germany or Japan.
"What about tho Chinese New
Year?" asked a lady member.
"In that caso," replied Mr.
Scott, "wo can't got tho children
to school, so wo simply ignore
their absence. We can't
arrest them for truancy because
thero would bo too many of
thorn, so they are allowed to stay
away and nothing is said about
"I presume the same course
will have to bo adoDtcd on the
Queon'B birthday," said tho Min
ister, "if British parents wish
thoir children to stay away from
school on the Queen's birthday
they aro entitled to the privilege
as much as the Chinese. But
they must do it on their own res
ponsibility. The Board cannot
establish a precedent which would
involve as many holidays as they
have in Mexico."
A motion then passed unani
mously that there will be no holi
day on Monday, May 24 inst.
Mr. Scott further reported that
be had inquired into the matter
of the Hudson children and found
that they had only really been de
prived of schooling for two days.
Professor Scott had kept thtun in
sohool on his own responsibility.
Tho faota bad been as reported,
tho ohildren wore intelligent and
deserving and the father indus
trious but very poor.
Mr. von Holt Has Professor
Scott made -any written recom
mendation in the matter?
Mr. Scott No, sir.
Mr. von Holt Has he been no
tified of tho action of this Board
requesting him to do bo.
Secretary Eodgers Yes, Bir.
Here is the copy ot the letter I
Mr. von Holt I do not believe
that Professor Scott or any other
teaehor should bo allowed to
ignore courteous requests from
this Board. I move that the Deputy-Inspector
interview tho Pro
fessor and demand that he com
ply with the motion passed by
this Board at ita last meeting.
A general discussion on free
Bcholarships then ensued in which
it appeared that the Board had
little or no knowledge of how
many could be or had been grant
ed, nor of those granted was there
any reoord before the Board to
show whether they were still in
force, that is whether tho ohildren
were still attending school under
authority of tho scholarships.
Several instances woro pointed
out where ohildren were using
these scholarships whoso parentsat
tho timo they were granted were in
poor circumstances but now were
abundantly able to pay the tuition
fees. Tho matter was passed for a
time, it being so near tho end of
the school year.
Mr. Smith callod attention to the
over-crowded condition of the
schools evorywbere. Ho said be
had caused six arrests for truanoy
to be made during the week, and
in each oase tho defonso had boon
that thero was no room in the
schools for the ohildren.

and DnyVi Hpnrla HnapllM
An adjourned general meeting
of British residents was held at
tho Arlington hotel last night, to
hear reports of committees on the
Diamond Jubileo celebration. It
was tho unanimous wish that T.
Bain Walker should be ohairman,
as he was of tho first meeting, and
by tho same consent W.F. Wilson
was asked to continue as seoretary.
T. Olive Davies, chairman of the
executive committee, reported up
a program of celebration so far as
ready. It comprised an invitation
ball on the evening of Juno 22; a
religious sorvico at St. Andrew's
cathedral, attended by Her Majes
ty's Commissioner, at 10 a. m. of
tho 23rd; regatta in Honolulu
harbor, forenoon, same day; chil

salute at iz, tuo Uovornment hav
ing granted tho use of a battery;
and, finally, athletic sports, with
cups and medals for prizes, from
1p.m. through tho afternoon,
winding up with a horse raco.
At a later stage tho committee
was authorized to go ahead with a
surety of S1C00 for expenses.
Ghas. Crozier made a deadset
against the horse race as out of
place amongst atbletio contests.
Ho was supported by B.A.Jordan,
who spoke of it as a "one horse
race." The chair ruled that it was
a matter for the executive commit-
teo to further consider.
F. M. Swanzy gave a report of
progress from the finance commit
tee. A few contributions bad been
received from country districts,
but, bb some of these were holding
celebrations of their own, little
should be expocted from this
source. Mr. Swanzy submitted
trial plans, made after consulta
tion with looal British physicians,
of a cottage hospital of two wards
with three beds eaoh. It would
cost, furnished, about $8200, and
the running exponsoB would bo
about $200 a month.
Alex. Young said that Drs. Mo
Eibbin, Herbert, Miner and Mur
ray bad kindly offered their ser
vices free for such as hospital,
and that Judge Widemann had in
formed them that when the fund
reached $10,000 ho would give

At n meeting of tho Council
of State this afternoon there woro
presont President Dole, Ministers
Smith aud Cooper, and Council
lors Robertson, Eouupdy, Itobin
son, Eane, Mendonca, Xaono,.
Minister Cooper said the pur
pose of the moeting was to ask the
Council to exorcise one of its
rights in the matter of making
appropriations. An emorgenoy
bad arisen in the quarantine ex
penses of the Board of Health.
The appropriation for quarantine
expenses for the two years ending
December 31, 1897, wqb $10,000.
Of that sum there was
$2121.23 left to last for tho
remainder of tho period. The ex
traordinary expenses incurred by
the quarantine of the Einai Maru's
immigrants had amounted to a
little over 85800. Tho President
of the Board of Health had sub
mitted a resolution to the Execu
tive Council asking that a speoial
appropriation be asked for tho
purpose of defraying theso extraor
dinary expensesIbis bad been con
sidered at a meeting of tho .bxe
cutivo Couucil this morning.when
it was deoided to ask the Council
of State to make the special appro
priation under the authority
granted them by the Constitution.
Attorney General Smith then
explained how the appropriation
for quarantine expenses bad been
utilized and stated that the bal
ance remaining would be needed
in the ordinary routine. The ap
propriation was asked under tho
authority granted by Article 81 of
Senator Wilder asked whether
the appropriation was asked on
account of pestilence or as an
Minister Smith thought under
the plea of pestilence, certainly
ono was threatened.
Senator Wilder asked again if
the same expense would not havo
been incurred if the smallpox bad
not broken out.
Mr. Smith said the expense
would not have been bo great
Replying to a question aa to what
steps were taken to collect the
money from the ship he said no
one connected with the ship had
any money, neither the captain,
agents nor immigration people.
It was a question of taking a bond
or keeping the ship indefinitely.
They had ohosen to take the bond
and fully belioved it would yet bo
P. C. Jones asked if the time of
the bond had elapsed.
Mr. Smith said no. The bond
was good for GO days. It was to
be paid within 60 days after arri
val in Japan.
Mr. Jones said whon bo sold
cattle to the Board of Health from
tho Parker ranob he had to wait
four months for tho money. He
did not see why other people
should not wait just as long as he
had to. At least before doing any
thing it would bo as well to wait
and see whether tho bond could
be colleotod or not. He thought
the government should have wait
ed until that question was decided'
before culliug on tho Couucil.
Mr. Smith said $2300 of tho
amount would go to tho guards
who served at the quarantine sta
tion. It was usual to pay all pay
rolls on the first of eaoh month
and theso men expootod their
money. If tho Council did not
want to consider tho matter now
it might be referred to a commit
tee. Mr. Robertson said he did not
consider tho present an emer
gency suflioiont to give tho Coun
cil authority, What is a pestilence?
