As a matter of history It may bo Btat
ed that, many years before Postmaster
General J. Mort Oat established tho
boxes as above stated, Postmastci Gen
eral II. M. Whitney tried the system.
JTho town was more scattered and even
less sufficiently policed than now.
Thctcfore, when Mr. Whitney found
that malicious loafers vveio stulling the
boxes with offal and rubbish he dis
gustedly gnvo up the experiment.
Soon nfter Mr. Oat started the exist
ing system there was n repetition of
rowdyism against It. One day he got
information that someono had splotch
ed tho keyholes of a series of boxes
with red paint. Immediately the P
M. G. put on his war paint nnd enlisting
the Marshal as an ally had tho vandal
arrested red-handed beforo tho paint
on the boxes was dry. An cxnmplo,
that tho P. M. G. did not deem neces

Since then nothing worso than an oc
casional match stuck In a keyhulo has
been done to the boxes.

The Board of Education
and Attorney General's
Teacher Forbidden to Order Books on
TheirOwn Account Petition for
Half Day Off Each Month
According to adjournment the Hontd
of Education met this morning to fur
ther consider the proposals of the Am
erican Rook Company. The Attorney
General's opinion elsewhere printed
was submitted to tho meeting.
Tho view of the Hoard seemed to be
that It had lawful power to mako u
contract, but. If the Hoard was under
compulsion of law to conduct the school
book business itself, there would lie
no use In muklng such a contract as
that In question.
Superintendent Atkinson was In fa
vor of leav Ing the matter In abey mice to
nwalt action by tho Legislature.
The matter was tabled for future
consideration If desired.
Mr. von Holt took occasion to cor
tect an erroneous report published.
(Not in tho Uullctln.) Ho had pro
posed the rcferenco to tho Attorney
General Instead of opposing It. His
objection was to having the matter
submitted to tho Executive council, be
lieving the Hoard competent to conduct
its own affairs.
The Christmas holidays were flxel

pathized with tho motives but declined

Collector Stnckable says the system
of paying customs dues suggested by
tho Secretary of the Treasmy to Gov

BIRDS AM) ANIMALS.
Hint fanclcra In Honolulu can now
Import canary birds free of duty.
Therefore, canary birds Imported from
the Orient no longer tequlrc the regu
lar duty of 25 cents a bird.
It will bo remembered that Dr Hit
derhrnud at one tlmo tried to Import
snakes Into this country and Charley
Gullck made himself Immortal by not
permitting them to land, 'although
there was no law prohibiting their Im
portation, Collector Stackable took upon him
self not long ngo the responsibility of
refusing tho Imputation of the Ilelglan
hate. As theie aro no snakes In this
country It would be well If a petition
wero circulated asking the Secretniy of
tho Tieasuiy to prohibit theli Importa
tion Into Hawaii. It would also bit
well to ask that the Collector be given
the discretion of lefuslng the entry of
animals or icptltes Injurious to tho
welfato of the Tenltory.
