CUT DOWN OFFICIALS-PAY
Governor Dole proposes that the Su
perintendent of Public Instruction be
given a salary of $1,500 n year. This
may be tho stipend nccessarjVto obtain
n proper officer for this position, but It
ought to be necessary for the Execu
tive to show what tho Superintendent
does tu earn this munificent salary he-
nL tore It' Is allowed by tho Legislature
f In going over the estimates of this
f department It appears that tho Super-
0 Intendcut's salary Is placed at this litah
flguro because each of tho Normal In-
strnctnra tl nnlil 91 nan n VMr Tn nil
. appearances tho dignity of tho super-
I lntcndent's office Is worth $1,500. This
is doubtless highly satisfactory to the
Incumbent, but where does the tax
pajer get off? Tho Stato of California
pays Its Superintendent of Public In
struction $3,000 a )enr and there Is no
lack of good men to fill tho position
at thai price. Why should tho littlo
Territory of Hawaii pay a full fifty per
As n matter of fact, tho real work of
the Department of Public Instruction
Is done by tho Normal Instructors nnd
V tho Individual teachers. Their work
f Is of such n character that they must
give their wholo time to the, depart-
, ment. Under the present admlnlstin-
tlon the Normal Instructors nro tho
eyes of the department, the teachers Its
slaves, The Superintendent uphods
the dignity of tho position. His du
ties are no lesB arduous, or exacting
than tho Secretary of tho Territory.
His time Is virtually his own. The ex
ecutive duties of tho position do not
demand his undivided attention, hence
do not receive it,
Reverting to California again, while
it pays Its Superintendent of Public
Instruction $3,000 a year, principals of

partly the result of Influences out

some country towns arc strong
enough to visibly affect the school

then 4hnt the teachers have their
hardest fight, not so much In mak

upon "Illshop Potter nnd tho Love of

"Tho church ns an Institution Is ns
much a factor In tho economic degra

"Why do not the very poor go to

them with their charities. Theio Is
an Impassible gulf between the Intelli

years ago the annual deaths from eon

there were 3.403: from 1887 to 189S they
amounted to 31.C99. He believed the an
