Mrs. Dillingham was tho only

ing. The TeaoborB' Committee made

which wero adopted:
MisB Pomoroy to tbo primnry
dopartment of Papaikou school

Miss Winnie to the primary
room at Waimea, Kauai, at $50
Miss Nellie McLean, assistant

RosecranB and Miss Ida'
to the Labaina school at
salaries of $40 per month.
On motion it was voted that tho
additional compensation of S15
per month allowed for touching
sowing at tho Lahaina eohool be
horeafter disallowed, and that
tho school agent be notified that
all sewing lessons must bo had

presented his report on the recent
examinations for teachers' certifi
cates: One hundred and twouty
candidates reported for examina
tion. 3 came ouly on the second
day, 41 fell below tho mark, 27
obtained third-class certificates,
30 second-class certificates aud 19
first-class certificates. Mr. Town
send explainod that this was the
largest number of candidates that
had prosentod thomsolves for exa
mination during tho last 10 years;
also, that 19 was the largest num
ber of first-class certificates
obtained during that time.
Minister Cooper congralulattd
the committeo on tho examination
on tbo showing mado mid on tho
oolority with which they had
beon ablo to report.
Mr. Townsend said tho task
hud been no easy oue. Ovor 1200
papers ranging iroin two to ten
pages bad beon passed on in six
Inspector Townsend brought to
tho notion of tho Board the fact
that from threo to five teaoheis,
in this district, possessing no
cortificutes, hud fniled to proent
thrmselves for examination ns
required by a recent resolution
of tho Board On tbo suggestion
of Commissioner Yon Holt that
they should be given a ohunce to
explain why they had not com
plied with tho order of the Board
tho matter wis roferred to the
Touchers' Committee to roport on
at tho next mooting.
Minister Cooper appointed Mrs.
Joul.in to take the place of Mrs.
Dillinghttm on tho To.ichurs' Com
milieu during her absence.
From iufrmution before the
Board it appeared that a certain
tcuchur hud given a graduate in
the recont Normul class to under
stand that her diploma would bo
good lor lite without Mrtnor re
quirements. This being contrary
to the understanding of tho Board,
a resolution was parsed to the effect
that Normal diplomas should be
good only for five years, at the
oud of which period upon proof
of fivo years' active service in the
department they would be extend
ed to tho life period.
In tho case of Mr. Wetborboo,
assistant of Mr. Noedham iu the
Roform school, it was oxplained
that ho did not wish to resign but
rather to bo transferred to snmo
other position loss arduous. Jt
appearing to the Hoard that Mr.
Wofhmlmn wo givinj; ovccllnnt
satisfaction in his piebeul po-ii-tion
mid that ho was really over
worked,besidoB having had no vaca
tion, it was voted to givo him a
leave of absence of a mouth, his
salary to go on during tho period.
Mr. Bnydnr was appointed to lako
tho position for ono mouth at a
salary of 850, whioh is in addition
to that he now draws.
The Board then took up the
mattor of vertical writing and
formally adopted it as tho system
to be hereafter used iu tho public
schools of tho country. It was
voted that copybooks 4 and 5 of
tho American Book Company's
series bo used for thoao to whom
they are suitable and that copy
bonks 1, 2 and 3 bo used for black
The resignations of Misses
Margaret Powers, Alvina Koiak,
May Atkinson aud Sarah Potorson
wero tendered Bnd accepted.
In tho mattor of tho Koloa
school silo, Miuisler Cooper said
a conference of loading lawyers
had decided that the Koloa trust
no longer survives. Dr. J. K.
Smith had become tho owner of
bothsites biit was willing to give
a quit claim deed to tho present
site, adding enough land thereto
to mako it equal to the other.
In the matter of the Houomu
school Bite;' Minister Cooper re
ported a proposition from Man
ager Moore to exchange sitos. Ou
motion this was referred to In
spector Townsend to consider on
his next visit to the place.
President Cooper next announc
ed that the ut-w school building at
Hoonaonao was about finished.
There remained about $7000 in
tho fund for new school houses.
In conferenco with tho Inspector
Goueral he had como to tbo con
clusion that Honokaa should be
next for a new school house.
There would be enough to build
one there and two smaller ones at
places in North Kona where there
was urgent need. On motiou the
matter was loft to the disposition
of the Minister.
Minister Coopor said ho was
afraid ho would havo to give up
his projected trip to Hawaii on
account of press of other business;
besides there was no money loft
in the fund for incidental ex
penses. Commissioner Bowen thought

to tho report to the effect that all
bills for books contracted up to

Complaint having been mnde
that a large number of pupils of
school ago had been attending tho
Night School contrary to tho re
gulations, Mr. Lightfoot had beon
roquoBtod to roport thereon. His
report allowed that seven pupils
of St. Louis college niulor the ago
of 16 were availing themselves of

Itwas ordered that no pupils under

In American Nhlimirim Iu
Washington, July 18. Hawai
ian coiumurcu during tiio last tou
years is tho subject of u circular
just issuod by thu Department of
Agriculture: Tho paper was pro-
pured by F. H. Hitohcook, chief
of the division of foreign markets.
Tlio facts sot forth bonr diroctly
upon tho decision of tho annexa
tion of the Hawaiian Islands to
tho United Sl.ttos, and are us fol
lows: Tho comparison of statistics
sliows that tho United Statos con
trols l)i) per cent of tho entire
trade of the islands,
value of exports and
Hawaii for 1896 was
of which nbout'two-thirds. $15,-
515 2.'I0, was the value of goods
oxportod. The overage of exports
of tho ten years, lbo-lSy7, was
$11,052,141, and of imports, $5,-422-159,
leaving an averago bal
ance of $5,029,681 in fuvor of ex
ports. Of this traffio 91.20 nor cent
wus with tho United States during
the first tivo yoirs of tho dtcude,
and in tho second five years tho
loud of this country over other
country was inoroasod to 91.92
Another impression ot tho situ
ation may be gained from the
statement that our trade with tho
isluudB in 1896, according to Ha
waiian statistics, reached $20,924,
306, tho largest amount ever re
corded, while tho highest figuro
proviouoly woe for 1800, whop a
total of $18,332,631.80 was report
ed. Tho United States, however,
does not yet hold so high a posi
tion in furnishing goods for Ha
waii as in the taking of the pro
ducts of tho islands. Of the avor
ago of tho exports for tho ten
yours, nearly 811,000,000 a yoar,
tho United States has bought
practically all. Only oue half of
1 per cent has been sold to othor
countries. Of tho goods purchas
ed by Hawaii, on the other hand,
the United States furnished only
about threo fourths.
However, it is chiefly in our
sales to the islands that the trade
is growing. Tho annual average
of theso sales for the fivo years,
1887-1891, was $4,376,312, but for
1891-1896, S4.496.275; while the
exports to Hawaii for the last year

while tho shipments in the other

chiefly manufactured. Our im

In the ordor the exports are
breadstuff's, cotton goods, fertili
zers, machinery, lumber, tobacco,
wire and chemicals. It is notice
ablo that shipments of American
live stock, meats, apples and corn
amount to very little. Prior to
1876, whou tho first reciprocity
treaty was mado between tho
United States and Hawaii, their
total commerce average was only

Muu.iger Carter of tho Store
said thoir protest was based under

teams. That any agreement mado

Ho considered that botli

Tho motiou to sustain the pro
test upon being put by Chairman
Harry Whitney was declined a
tie, tho Stars voting for it mid Iho
St. Louis aguiuBt it.
The decision being thus left to
tho chairman, Mr. Whitney said
he much regretted that the
matter had been brought up
in tho League It wbb under
stood at a recent meeting that
these questions should be decided
outside tho League. However,
tho Stars had brought the protest
aud forced it to an isbuo which he
was compelled to decide. In the
first place in the fifteen or more
years he had played busuba.ll in
Houolulu it hud been the unwrit
ten law for tho captains of the
teams to make such agreements as
tho ono in question, and this was
the first time their authority had
beon questioned. In tho next1,
place ho had been instrumental
iu bringing Captains Thompson
and Wilder togethor from which
interview tho agreement spniug.He
hud a very distinct romembrauco
that Captain Thompson's solo
condition, on which alone his
team had consented to remain in
tho League, was that only the last
half of tho ninth inniugs in the
disputed game should bo played.
Takiug into consideration the
custom of allowing captains to
mako agreements here and his
porsonal knowledgo of tho forms
of tho agreoment, thoro was no
othor course left for him but to
decide against the Stars and he
would so announce his vote. It
