THE BOARD OF EDUCATION
NO TEACHERS TO BE APPOINTED
BEFORE THE VACATION.
Htinll ths Night Hchool be Kept
Open Diirlnic Vacation? I unpec-
tor Townaend'a Trip to Kauai.
All the members and officials
of the Board of Education woro
present at yesterday's meeting.
After tho reading of tho min
utes Inspector-General Townsend
for the Special Committee on
Classification of Salaries reported
progress. Whilo'not propared to
Tnnko a final roportho said tho
committee- had held soveral meet
ings on tho subject and had done
considerable figuring. They had
decided that all now appointments
should bo govorned by tho new
classification but as to tho old
ones tho committee was yet in
doubt whether tho raises in salary
under the new schedule for length
of service would not exceed tho
amount of the appropriation. The
committee hoped to make a nnal
report next week.
Professor Scott of the High
School appeared before tho Board
and extended an invitation for the
"members to attend the closing exer
cises of. tho school on Monday next
at 7 :30. Mr.Scott explained that tho
school would continue until Friday
but all other evenings but Mon
day were occupied n with jubilee
and other entertainments.
Professor Alexander from tho
Teachers' Committee roported
that thoy had decided to recom
mend Mrs. Harriet Davis of La
haina to the position now filled by
Miss May Atkinson.
Mr. von Holt wanted to know
the reasons which actuated the
committee in their selection but
none were forthcoming. He then
inquired if Mrs. Davis' name was
the first on tho list of applicants
for posetion but got no satisfac
tion. He then inquired if there
were any( applications on file
antedating that of Mrs.
Davis but no ono could inform
him. Ho then said ho had under
stood it to be tho desiro of the de
partment to promote its present
teachers at every opportunity and
asked why tho Toaohers' Commit
tee bad recommended a stranger
in contravention of tho under
standing that a system of promo
tion was to prevail.
Mrs. Dillingham, a member of
the committee, .thought perhaps it
had been hasty in recommending
the appointment.lt would be better
to refer it back for reconsideration
and it was so ordered.
Minister Cooper said that there
would likely be a good many
changes to make and vacancies to
fill at the olose of tho term. It
would probably be as well to have
it understdod that no appoint
ments would bo made until the
Inspector Townsend agreed with
tho Minister but wanted an excep-,
tion made in tho case of the La
hainaluna school, of which the
principal, Osmer Abbott, had been
f ran ted a year's leave of absence,
hero were two persons named as
substitutes, ono being Fred Ab
bott, tho principal's brother, and
the othor a man namod Rippetoo,
both of whom woro at presont resid
ing in Spokano,whithor Mr.Abbott
was going direct. It was desira
ble that tho appointment be made
beforo next Thursday so that Mr.
Abbott could take it with him.
It was finally decided that Mr.
Abbott should be conforrod with
before his departure and a satis
factory arrangemont mado.
Deputy-Inspector Scott roport
ed that all the improvements in
tho way of blinds and transoms in
the new school houses had been
completed and painted a delicate
Inspector Townsend not being
ready with his report on his trip
to Kauai, Ministor Coopor asked
for a verbal ono. The inspector
said ho noticed on the wholo a
considerable improvement in their
condition and followed with a
general description of tho condi
tion of each school and the
abilities of the teachers.
The schools were generally over
crowded, one four-roomed school
being mentioned where tho class
es ranged from 43 to 55 in num
ber. Some of the schools ho found
very backward, giving an instance
of one whose ages pavoraged 11$
years which had just reached the
middle of tho, Second Header, but
stated that it was not the fault of
tho teacher who was doing her
boat. Othor schools woro men
tioned where it was evident that if
the principal and assistant
changed places it would be better
for tho schools and in quite a
number of instances Mr. Town
send suggested that tho teachers
could not bo got rid oE too quick
ly. Ho mentioned tho cano of ono
young lady, ono of tho rooeut im
poitations, who had remnrkod
"that no school teacher on Kauai
could tench hor anything" as be
ing sadly in need of instruction,
so much so that ho Bbould try
so arrange it so that she
had ample tirno to stay home
and study for the next
examinations. He had also re
coived numerous applications for
increases of salaries mostly from
noiuers or iow-gracio cortiucuiet.
He had advised theeo that tho
quickest way to obtain higher
salary was to get a higher certi
ficate. A largo number of applications
for positions under tho depart
ment were read and filed.
The matter of filling tho vacan
cy of school agent on Molokai,
caused by tho death of R. W.
Meyer, was brought up but action
was deferred. f
Professor Alexander was ap
pointed a corainittoo of ono to ro
port a Buitablo resolution on tho
death of R. W. Meyer. J-u (
Mr. Townsend brought up tho
question of vertical writing-in tho
schools and said thore would be
difficulty in obtaining suitable
books, owing to tho contract with
the American Book Company.
Mr. Scoti thought tho matter
could bo arranged by writing to
tho company and explaining tho
situation of tho Board,and the In-spoctor-Genoral
was requested to
Mr. Scott said he had been re
quested to bring up a matter con
nected with the Night School.
Would tho goneral vacation be
extended to the Night School?
Many of its pupils wero desirous
that it should continue on, espe
cially as thore would bo no school
for the first threo months of next
Ministor Cooper doubted if the
sohool should be kopt going for
the oonvenienco of a fow. He
had passed by the school several
times of late and noticed that tho
attendance was extremely limited,
on one occasion thore were but
two or threo in ono of tho rooms.
This looked as if the Night Sohool
served tho only purpose of put
ting a few extra dollars into tho
Inspector - General Townsend
said that might have been Mr.
Lightfoot's special , class for
,toacbers. Ho had visited that
class one night and found
one toachor thero ,and ono who
was preparing to bo a teacher.
Mr. Scott said thero wero six
teachers enrolled in that class. As
to the night school itself tho at
tendance was very dosultory, by
reason of tho occupation of somo
of the pupils. Ho would suggest
that a limit bo fixed for each room,
say 25, and if the attendance fell
below that it bo discontinued and
tho pupils merged in tho othor
Ministor Cooper said he would
like to know more about the con
dition of affairs. Let Mr. Light
foot present a report showing tho
daily attendanco at tho Night
Sohool since January 1, and the
Board could then act intelligent
ly. So ordered.
Tho application of W. A. Ray
of Papaikou for leave of absence
until tho end of August was grant

It has been whispered around
that tho Japanese oruisor Naniwa
will sail for home next Wednes
day. It is an open secret that as
far as tho mission on which she
came is concerned thero is nothing
for her to do but to go home. Her
captain is credited with making
tho romark ou tho Philadelphia at
tho roceptiou on Wednesday night
that ho should probably leave in a
few days, a3 there was nothing to
wait for here, uud ho did not care
to keep her here uudor a heavy
it is also given out that tho
ofiicore of tho Naniwa will accopt
no further invitations or courtesies
frOtn shore peoplo for tho reason
that their time of departure is un
settled and likely to be too Bhort for
thorn to roturu any calls. Cortain
it is that uono of thorn havo had
shore loavo in the past two days.
It may safely be conjectured
that Counsellor Akiyama has
obtained all tho information ho
desires as to tho right of tho Ha
waiian Government to rejoct emi
grants who. come hero contrary to
law and nothing remains for him
but to go home and lay
tho results of his trip to
Honolulu beforo tho Tokio Gov
ernment for futuro action. If
any further communications are.
mado to the Hawaiian Govern
ment on the matter thoy will bo
more than likely to come through
ordinary diplomatic channels.
At the Foreign Office nothing
was known of the reported depar
ture of the Naniwa, but it was
thought likely that her stay in
this poi t would soon come to an
Kllnbnua Art League.
There was a business meeting
hold at tho rooms of tho Kilohana
Art League yesterday evening.
The society is tho richer by tho
gift of an intaglid head of D.How
ard Hitchcock, by Mr. Allen
Hutchinson, but tho losor by the
resignation of tho latter gentle
man, as he is permanently leaving
Honolulu at this time. Mr.
Hutchinson was elected an hon
orary member, with muoh appre
ciation expressed for what ho has
done in his art for the League and
for the community. Tho dates for
tho autumn exhibition wero set
for the latter port of November,
and thore wero throe additions
made to tho membership.

Abraham Mark, the man whoso
namo Mrs. Harriet Beeuher Stowe
solocted for the lawyer in hor
great book. Any likouees between
"Marks tho lawyer" of tho stage
and Judgo Marks of real lifo ends
with tho name. In appearance
and character thoy aro as widely
dissimilar as could bo imagined.
The stage Marks is half buffoon,
half brute, with an impossible,
costume and an inordinate thirst
for tho blood of runaway slaves;
tho real Marks tho lawyor is u
courteous, learned,, elderly gentle
man of the old school, who bears
a striking resemblauco to John
Sherman, and with whom it is a
delight to talk.
This old gcptlemau is interest
ing, not only because his name
was given to a character of tho
stage that has probably made
moro poople laugh and hato than
any othor, but ho wus a schoolmate
of Edgar Allan Poo and has a scar
ou his head made accidentally by
tho poot when they were hunting
robins together; he played mar
bles with Chief Justice Marshall;
he played cards with Honry Clay;
ho fought a duel in San Antonio,
Tex., when there wero only thir
teen white men in the place; bo
sat many a day on the sill of the
old log Capitol of Texas and
smoked with Sam Houston; be
practised law for sixty-ono years
in the North and South and he
was a Judgo in Louisiana in the
years iust before tho Civil War.
He 'never met Mrs. Harriet
Beecher Stowe beforo sho wrote
her fumous book. If ho had sho
might not have broughthis name
to such infamous notoriety. Ho
asked her once how sho came to
use his name for one of tho chief
charactors in her book. Sho told
him sho had been to tho South
botore the Btory of "Uncle Tom's
Cabin" shaped itself in her mind.
Ho was a judgo then in Louisiana.
His peculiar namo stuck in hor
memory and when sho wished to
namo hor lawyor his was the first
and only ono that suggested itself
to hor and she used it.
"I havo Been the play," said
Judgo Marks tho othor day, as ho
sat in a comfortable armchair in
his lodgings, 123 Wost Ninth
street, as he twirled his eye
glasses between his Angora. "The
character of Marks tho lawyor is a
preposterous thing. .It's a mis
taken character becauao it is not
at all like myself or any other
lawyer that ever lived.,
"I was 83 years old my last
birthday and I expect to be buried
in Kansas City," ho said. "Oh, I
havo had a vuried career. Sph
that scar on my head ?" Ho bont
down his head to show a seal two
inches longin tho Bcalp."That was
made by Edgar Poo. Wo wore
schoolmates together in Rich
mond, Va. Wo woro hunting
robins ono day and I got botweon
his gun and a bird as ho fired and
sovoral of tho shot toro through
my scalp. Ho was so frightened
at the sight of tho blood that ho
dropped his gun and ran. I
nover mot him afterward. Ho
was adopted by Allan, tho tobac
