mutism, and rheumatic gout. As a
Tonic, it assists the process of
digestion', stimulates the bluggish
liver, strengthens tho nerves, and
builds up tho body when debilitated

illness. Physicians everywhere con
sider Ayer's Sarsaparilla the best. It

All tho members of tho 13onrd
of Education wero present at tho
meeting yesterday afternoon, ox
cept Mrs. Dillingham and H. M.
After tho reading of the minutes
of Inst meeting, the Committee on
Teachers presontod tho following
recommendations of assignments
of toachers, which were adopted:
Miss Frankio Eaton to bo assis
tant in tho Hilo Seleot School.
S.R. Dowdol to Makawno.

Miss Trinidad Marcos to Puna-
Miss L. Cameron to Kaulu
wela. Inspector - General Townsend
presented the application of Mr.
Bumetto, empioyea rjy;tho Wnsu
ington Feed Company, to bo giv
en a position to teach bookkeep
ing in tho Night School. Tho
Board concluded that Mr. Light
foot did not need any assistance
at present. -
Mr. Towneond then broached
oue of his pet schemes to the
Board. It is nothing more or
less than the establishment of a
class of teachers who desire to
take a course of higher pedagogy.
The scheme was prompted by the
wish of a few teaohors to take up
advanced studios. The courso
would extend ovor three years
and be entirely voluntary. The
teachers would tako up certain
studies and text books each year,
which ho hud alroady mapped
out, and at tho end of the year
would havo to write a thesis of
not less than 1000- or more than
3000 words on some one of the
studies taken up. Thero would
be no expense connaoted with the
scheme as the teachers would pur
chase their own books. It was
proposed to give a diploma or cer
tificate at the end of the three
years' course, which would be of
no real value to the owner except
to show diligence and additional
qualifications in tho higher
methods of toaohiue whioh would
be taken into account by the
Board in assigning positions. It
was proposed to start the first
class within a week, and at the
end of a year to start another, tho
proposition being that each suo
needing class should be taught by
tho one before it. Thin would
make a continuous system of one
class of teaching. Ho thought
tho schools at largo would reoeivo
material benefit by the adoption
of this system, as well as tho
teachers themselves. Having ox
plained his theory to the
satisfaction of the Board
Mr. Townsend said he hoped it
would it endorsed by them. Such
endorsement would have a good
effect and act as a stimulant on
tho toachers. If tho Board con
cluded not to eudorse it, tho plan
would be carried out by him as a
Minister Cooper thought favor
ably of it, an did the other mom
born, and with the understanding
that tho dopartmout wus to bo put
to no expense in the matter a
motion to endorse it was carried.
Inspector Townoond Raid he
had been looking ovor tho books
in his ofilco with a view to assist
ing llev. Mr. Birnie's proposition
to establish a traveling school
library. Tho idea was to donato
tho uflo of a library to a school
for six mouths and then pass it
on to anothor. He bad picked
out about 35 volumes belonging
to tho Board and requested per
mission to neo them for the pur
Various applications and re-
commendations for positions wero
referred to tho Teaoher's Commit
tee. President Cooper asked tho
other two mombors of tho special
committee Professor Alexander
and Inspector Townsend to iu-
vestiiznto certain charges of
meddling, etc., against two
tenchors if they wero ready to re
port, saying for himself that he
was ready to speak his mind on
tho matter at once. It appearing
that the balance of the committee
was not ready yet, tho matter went
over to next week.
Louis Madaraz presented an
application to bo made superin
tendent of writing in the publio
schools, which was placed on file,
there being no such position to

Reanlt of Lawyer macdonald'a Appeal
tn President MaKlulcy.
Lawyer S. J. Macdouald has
scored a rather singular triumph
behalf of a client in trouble.
It will bo remembered that a few
months ago, when the U. S. S.
Philadelphia's battalion was re
turning to tho ship from shore
drill, Oscar J. Jenson, a blue
jaoket,was clandestinely indulging
in a drink of soda water at tho
boat landing, when a lioutonant
with his sword struck the bottle
nut of his hand. Jenson mado a
hasty remark to tho effect that it
was well for the officer that he
had on his uniform,
For that remark Jenson wns
tried by Court-martial on tho
charge of disrespect tomn officer.
He was allowed counsel in the
person of Mr. Macdonald, bnt be
ing convicted notwithstanding
was sentencod to one year's con
finement in tho "brig." Admiral
Beardslee exercised his preroga
tive by reducing the term of im
prisonment to six months.
Mr. Macdonald was not satis
fied with even this decree of
clemonoy, but appealed directly
to tho President of tho Unitod
States in a letter, enolnHing a full
statement of the caso on behalf of
President MoEinley, amidst the
multitude of his great duties,
found time to consider the case of
the poor bluejackot caged away off
in Honolulu. As f the result of
his consideration, orders came by
the steamerChina's mail to rostore
Bluejaokot Jenson to , duty.
Lawyer Macdonald in consequence
feels tho weight of a plume in his

It was close to 12 o'clock 'noon
today, when tho papers wero com
pleted in Mr. Hartwoll's ollico for
proceedings by wrjt of manda
mus to compel tho Hawaiian Gov
erument to grant a registry under
its flag to tho P. M. S. S. China.
No further deliberations, since
the conclusion reported yesterday,
had been held by the Executive
At Circuit Court chambors it
was- loarned that 4lho writ, ad
dressed to James B. Castle, Col
lector General of "Customs, was
signed by Judge Alfred Perry at
11:55 and at onco sent to the Mar
phal for service. The writ is re
turnable at "10 o'clock Monday.j
A copy of tho order to snow cause
was served on Collector General
Castle at 1:30 p. m. by a mounted
patrolman who went out to Wai
kiki for the purpose.
Tho writ sets forth that on July
2 the steamer China, being at Ben,
and having a British register, and
owned by the China Steamship
Company, Limited, of London,
was conveyed to petitioner, Geo.
W. Mncfarlane, by bill of sale of
That thereupon, upon thoappli
cation of petitioner to tho Hawai
ian Consul in London, provisional
register as a Hawaiian vessel was
granted to the steamship China.
That on August 5 petitioner
surrendered to the British Consul
General at San Francisco the
former British register of the
China, and caused said
steamship to be put
under the Hawaiian flig. That
tho steamship is now at tiiis port
under the Hawaiian Hug, and her

That he is informed and bo-
lieves that tho Collector Gonoral
caused tho said steamship to bo
measured and her tonnage accur
ately ascertained, for tho purpose
of tho desired registry, and had
notified the Minister of Foreign
Affairs of tho application, and
that the Minister had as
certained from Thos. Bain
Walker, British Vice - Consul,
that no legal impediment exists to
a Hawaiian register for said
fltoamship. It is not known
whether tho Minister has commu
nicated such information to tho
Collector Gonoral, but petitioner
submits that, as it is a statutory
duty for him to do bo, tho in
ference is that it has been done.
That the Ministers of Foreign
Affairs and of Finnnco have stated
that a registry would not be
grauted. The reasons givou are
that tho Minister of Foreign
Affairs had informed tho United
States Minister that no registers
to foreign built vessols would bo
granted, and it is claimed by tho
Minister of Foreign Affairs that
tho petitioner is not tho bona fido
owner of the steamship China.
Tho writ concludes as follows:
"That unless said steamship
shall recnivo such lognl rogister
the rights of her owners, insurers,
freighters, and others may be
seriously imperilled and irrepar

Editor Evenino Bulletin:
Having road somo so-called intor
viows with myself concerning tho
steamship China, published in
somo of tho Honolulu newspapers,
I desire to Bay that I have rigidly
rofraiued from making any Btate
monts, whatsoever, upon tho sub
ject, furthor than to mention tho
facts which now appear to be
well known, that n provisional
register had been granted to thu
China by tho Consul Goneral in
London on the 2d of July last be
fore he had receivod thodireclion
from the Hawaiian Foreign Ollico
to grant no moro provisional
registers, whioh direction was re
ceived July 9.
It appears that an nruraucn
had been given at the end of Juno

It may bo proper alio to say
that I have not consented to any
valuation of the steamer ni n basis
for the stomp duty required, and
also that I have used no such ex
pressions as havo been published
to tho effect that "the vessel should
not turn a wheel until a perma
nent register is obtained," nor
have I "declared with much gUBto"
that "I should insist upon a per
manent register before tho vessel
left port." All my discussions
upon tho subject have been with
my counsel and with the; Cabinet
Ministers. . '"jwj',

AT TI1C OPERA BOUSK.
Good Andlrnce to Wltnea ilia
frnmanre or-Miart'a Ulrl."
There was a much better
once than usual at tho4 Opera
House last night and thojfrequent
applause brought forth showed
that the rendition of the comedy
of "Dad's Girl" was a satisfactory
one. MisB Ratio Putnam in- the
character of Mulviua lluokiua
shono to even better advantage
than usual, the strong scenes in
the play giving her more scopo
for the display of dramntio abili
ty. The climax of the third act
was an especially strong one and.
in this oliss l'utnam showed more
dramatic force than somo of her
frionds credited her with. A call
before the curtain nt tho end of
this net testified tho appreciation
of the audience.
H. B. Emery made the most of
"Dear Old Dad," a part moro
suited to him than some others ho
has essayed. The other mombors
of company all appeared to hotter
advantage than usual, tho sub
erdinate characters having moro
scopo to show their ability than in
most of Miss Putnam's plays.
On Saturday night a dramatiza
tion of Charles Dickens' "Old
Curiosity Shop" will be produced.
Miss Pntnam will appear as Littlo
Nell and the Marchioness, two
distinctively different characters.
As the Marchioness, she will sing
and danco and play the baujo.
Mr. Emery will play Dick Swivo
