buildings ut a salarv of $30 ucr month
It has been argued that the condi
tions of tho buildings nnd tho char
acter of the students differ from the
outl)lug districts. That If this extra
work bo Imposed upon the children,
their parents will ask for their release
from school or transfer to different
schools where they will not be obliged
to work The argument has nlso been
advanced that the teachers are so
poorl) paid now that we have no;
moral right to ask more of them
draining that this lust argument has
tunio force, the fnct remains that tho
Honolulu teachers us a whole nre bet
let- paid than those In thu outl)inu
dl8tilcts and this work has been ex
pelled of them whereas It has not been
lequlied of thoso In Honolulu,
The matter practically resolves It
self Into the question of teachers or

among ninny, of the teachers n feel

ers better sahules They do not re
ullze tho fact that the amounts ex
pended for these vurlous things are
under specific appropriations by the
Legislature, und that the department
has not the power to cjlvcrt money
from ono appropriation to another.
The only one from which wo can
pay teachers, Janitors, 'etc.. Is the ap
propriation "Payroll, Support of

suggestions It was n hard question
It was well to go Into the matter fully,
since much comment hud been mnda
emanating from ignorance or the real
Von Holt favored the making of tho
request. He hated to saddle the teach
ers with more burdens. It would be
well to build schools, even If teachers
could not be provided for. Tho empty
buildings would stand as such wit
nesses for the legislature to contem
plate. Uabbltt said the cutting of the Jani
tors would not amount to much. At
torney General Peters bad promised to

Knrrlngton said It would neverthe
less mean more work for tho teachets.
Von Holt said that It might bo a sooit
plan to nit out tho Janitors ami ar
range with older pupils to look after
the schools for 11 small remunerate utu
Babbitt said this plan had been sug
gested by teachers nnd might ptore a
Von Holt thought It best to leave
the Jnnltors nnd let the empty now
schools be mute witnesses,
"What about the children who can
not go to school then?" asked Mrs.
"That Is not our fault," said Voa
I'lirrlugton said dispensing with the
Janitors would mean additional work
the teachers, which was hardly fair.
Babbitt said the country teachers
had to look out for their school, so
those In Honolulu might also do so

In the country were quite different,
from the big oens on Oahu
Von Holt snld he could not look a

Karrlngton said tho problem was dif
ferent according to the size and loca

Von Holt moved that Babbitt's Mtr
be forwarded to the Supervisors with
the necessary comment, with a request
that tho County pay for the Janitors
"If juu had the money would )ou
cut down the present force of Janitors.
Do )ou feel ou need them all?" asked
"1 certainly do," said Babbitt
