THE FUTURE OF THE HOTEL
rnoi'oxiTio to iisk it run a
If Mot Noht I'rpvluii.1' Hip Irprt
Mill I.Ik el J bo UruHKlit Hfl4.ro
A gentleman who is dooply in
terested iti tho wolfnro of the
public rquooIb lias advanced a
proposition concerning the dis
position ot tho Hawaiian hotel
that has met with groat favor. It
is nothing moro or less than tho
turning over of that hostelry to
the Department of Education for
school purposes. While not wish
ing his nnmo brought prominent
ly boforo tho public, tho author of
tho project consented to give his
ideas on the matter for publica
tion, us follows:
"The premises known as the
Hawaiian hotol belong to the
government and havo been nd
vertised for sale at an upset price
of $00,000, conditioned that the
purchaser oroct additional im
provements to coal 350,000 more.
Tho sale has already been post
poned once and the chances are
that owing to tho present un
settled stato of 'affairs it will not
tako plaoe. I doubt if anyone
could bo found to bid on it
under Iho conditions of the
sale, for tho reason that the
adjoining lots cannot bo obtained
at anything liko reasonable figures,
nnd without M'pt no nip wrild
buy the hotel at any price.
"I think I am not going out of
the wuy when 1 say that tho Ha
waiian hotel property ib very
much of a whito elephant on tho
government's hands and that the
sooner they get rid or it the bet-'
tor. Some two years ago tho gov
ernment paid the Bishop Estate
$30,000 in cold cash for tho build
ing on Emma street oreoted by
the Princess Ruth, tho reason ad
vauced for tho purchase beiug Ihe
immediate, necessity of suoh a
building for High school purposes.
The establishment of tho High
school was followed by tho insti
tution of the Normal and Practise
schools, and already thore is a
demand for more room. All the
schools in Honolulu aro over
crowded and, owing to increase of
population, aro becoming more so
"Taking it for granted, and I
think we may safely do so, that
the government will never be able
to realizo on its hotel investment,
I propose that tho property be
given over to tho Department of
Education either in fee or
by long Iosbo for school
purposes. This would save the
government a large outlay of
money in tho next few years for
ue;7 school huti3f?oihL!i :.w .iLr,o
lutoly necessary and tho money
for which must bo found by tho
coming Legislature. I under
stand that it is Minister Cooper's
idea to mako a permanent institu
tion of the newly established
Normal School, that it is to form
tlia nucleus of u National Noruiul
School into which all other .Nor
mal classes of private and Bomi
publiu scholastic institutions will
iiually bo merged. This is the
correct view and I am with the
Minister heart and soul in his'
idea that one National Normal
Suhool is all that is needed in
"13ut to return to my Bubject.
My idea is to turn tho hotel over
to tho school department and
establish' in it " Tho Normal
School of Hawaii." The Practiso
School could also bo given quar
ters in tho samo building. The
overflow from the Fort street and
Itoyal pchools conld be formed
into an entirely now school which
could usn tho bnnmnnt of tho
hotol for schoolrooms. If this
plan is adopted tho govormnuiit
could savo iu tho next few yonrs
tho present' price nskod for the
hotel proporty. Them is much
moro 1 could Raj- on tho advan
tages of this prnjoct but enough
for tho present.
HONOLULU, H. I., TUESDAY, AUGUST 21, 1897.
"Tho orvintr noed of Honolulu
is for n first-class city hotel with
all modem conveniences. I hold
that it will never bo obtainod sb
long ns the present one is used as
such. Give tho Hawaiian hotol
ovor to the schools and I am con
fident that thoro aro many local
capitalists who havo norvo and
foresiuht cnouch to oroct a mo
dern caravansary that will not
only bo a credit to tho city but a
source of profit to its owuors.
"In conclusion I may say that
I havo muutiuuud this plan to
several promiuont citizens and it
has mot with such favor that un
less tin) hotol is sold in tho mean
time, it will bo brought before the
next Legislature for ratification.

There waH a largo attendance nt
tho Opera Houso last night to see
the voriscopo reproduction of the
great pugilistic coutost nt Carson,
Novada, on March 17 last, between
J. J. Corbett nnd Robort Fitzsim-
inous. Among tho spectators
were a fw ladies. The bulk of
Mm uuoombly whs made up of pro
fesHJoual men, including about
half a do.t'ii doctors, business
men and mechanic. They were
rewarded with a double exhibition
of science ono of "tho manly art"
and Edison the wizard's wonder
ful device for photographing mo
tion. Scarcely a detail of the fight
was blurred in the reproduction,
nnd tho reviving process betweou
rounds was shown. Back of the
arena could be seen the onlookers;
in front, J. L. Sullivan, ex Sena
tor Ingalls and other notables.
Tho bustle of Jho preliminaries
aud tho wild excitement following
the knockout of Corbett were very
interesting in themselves. Every
lively attack and skilful repulse
was noted, ofton producing ap
plauso in the houso. Some who
enjoyed the shadow fight were
heard to say they did not think
they would care to see tho reality.
Yet the portrayal on the screen
proved that thero was far less
slogging ir tho combat than is
generally supposed of such events.
It was an exorcise of strength and
skill nB graceful as a fencing con
test, while evidoutly less brutal
and dangerous than is often seen
iu a football match. A marked

by tho prosecution that Nakoo
koo claimed and received back
his personal proporty taxes npon
tho allegation of a double pay
ment. The receipt he produced in
Bupport of. his assertion purported
to bo iu tho nnme of J. K. Nakoo
koo. It was proved by tho tax
people that this receipt had been
issued to a brother of the defen
dant, L. K. Nakookoo, under the
namo of K. Nakookoo only. This
receipt was lost by him but ho
identified it this morning in court
whon it was found to havo a "J"
signed in front of the "K. Nakoo
koo" in the original. On this
sbowiug tho Court found the de
fendant guilty and fined him $100
