The Scnato met at the usual hour this
morning and at 10:10 o'clock, on mo
tion of Mr. White, adjourned out of
respect for the memory of the late ex
Mr. Kanuha presented the following
report of the Committee on Public
Health to whom was rcferrod the La
hainaluna school bill:
Your Committee on Education and
I'ubllc Health, to whom was referred
Bill No. 30, entitled "An Act for a Ter
ritorial school for the Territory of Ha
waii which shall bo known by the name
of Lahainaluna Seminary at the same
place, and to appoint n Hoard of True
tees for the government of Lahainaluna
Seminary and to determine the powers
of inch Hoard of Trustees," bee leave
to teport that we havo had the same
under careful consideration.
The object of the bill In
First In view of the probability that
tbe Territory of Hawaii will be divided
Into counties, to make the Lahainaluna
Seminary a Territorial school.
Second To raise the standard and
efficiency of the school and make It
more of a school for manual training.
. To carry out this object, the bill pro
poses that the affairs of tho school shall
be under the control and management
of a Hoard of Trustees to be appointed
as provided In tho bill.
Your committee find that Lahaina
luna Seminary owns about 590 acres of
land, from 90 to 100 acres of which is
good cane land, now leased to the Pio
neer Mill Co for $282.50 per year; that
the Seminary owns a valuable water
right, which Is now leased to the same
company for $1000 n year.
Your committee believe that tht
Seminary might use tho land and wa
ter right In such a way as to nearly
support the Institution.
Lahalnnluna Seminary Is the only
High school In tho Territory where tlin
poor boj s of tho land, who cannot
afford to go to Kamehamcha school,
can get an education, and your com
mltteo strongly recommend raising tho
standard and efficiency of the Institu
tion, and to accomplish this, wo believe
It would bo a good plan to place the
management of the school In a Hoard of
Trustees, as provided In the bill.
Your committee hate made so many
changes In the wording of the bill that
wo think It best to Introduce a substi
tute bill, the passage of which wo r
