l'ubllu Instruction, In his report to
i'lrsldent Dnlo for the biennial period
cndltiK December 31, 1S9U, saya;
"I he rprlotl has betn nmvl-.ed li n

Ho says that perhnps the ijrcatest
hnrdsblii Ikih fallen on the tanchcis,
nn account of a resolution of t'10 Com
mlsJtonpis on April 13, 1S99. that no
saluiy should ho uiiseil for any cans;
until the next npptoprlntlcn by tho
I.CElslalnre. This action bPcoino mu-s
saiy upon tho payroll pquallln the
monthly pro inta of tlu approiirlatlou.
While the law allows n wny out of this
dllllculty In dependrncc upon tho Legis
lature, the uncertainty as to tho Kosh
latino convening nt tho usual time af
ter the cxpliatlon of the peril l math
this expedient unsafe.
Pi-cc Schools tlMtubllMlied.
Upon tho principle that nil classes
are entitled equally to tho bencllts of
stntc education, the Commissioners on
.May IS last icsolved to abolish forth
with the fees for attendance In all pub
lic schools. Only what wero called se
lect schools, numbering four In tlie
whole gioup, needed this leveling ac
tion, all other public schools having
becen free for savernl yean. "The
removal of tho lee," flays the Minister,
"has not In nny manner nlToctcd tho
stnndaid or character of tho select
"The necessity of nationalizing tho
illvcisc components of our community
through tho medium of our schools,"
making English the criterion of promo
tion as it has since 189U been tho me
dium of Instruction, Is declared and
upheld. Tho Minister also urges that
manual training should form nn Im
portant part of public Instruction in
Hawaii. I.ahnlnaluna Is n manual
training school, standing "an a monu
ment to tho long recognized desirabili
ty of this kind of school In our educa
Improvement of school yard environ
ment has been given Increased atten
tion, especially In connection with in
dustrial work in agriculture and In na
turo btudy. it Is suggested that nn
agricultural lustiuctor bo appointed,
whoso time should be divded between
soernl schools, for the Instruction of
both teachers and scholars.
A new Reform school for boys, pref
erably in tho country, making tho old
ono an Industrial school for girls. Is
recommended for legislative action.
Improvement In tho application of tho
truant law, to reduce the practice of
bringing truants before tho magistrate,
Is being carried on. A marked Im
provement In the work of tho Hono
lulu Normal nnd Training School is
noted. Its buildings arc too small.
Tho Summer School gets a good
woul. An early beginning of kinder
garten schools is advocated. More
tnen the present yearly medical Inspec
tion of school sis declared essential for
complete protection. Schools mo Im
portant factors In tho spread of con
tagious diseases. Tho department has
found that tho city schools prefer to
open at 9, tho country schools nt 8
o clock. A decision Is pending as to
tho advisability of shortening tho ses
sion of tho lower grades from 5 to 3V
hours. Tho Minister wants n larger
appropriation thnn $8,000 for school
books, which being sold to pupils cost
tho treasury nothing In tho end.
Vacation salaries have bsen satisfac
torily settled by n resolution of the
Hoard, giving as many tenths of their
salaries for tho holiday months of
July nnd August us they havo taught
mounts, to tcacheis who have taught
two terms or more.
A list of buildings completed shows:
Island of O.tiiti, two costing $-JU,9J3.03,
of which Kalulanl s-hoolhousc, Hono
lulu, took $21,778.33; Island of Ha

It cqunl the demand for new building
