THE FEDERAL BUILDING.
A very appropriate combination of
circumstances Is found In tho an
nouncement contained in Delegate
Kuhlo's cablegram reguidlng tho Ho

with the wot It begun to clear tho slto

It Is to bo sincerely hoped that tho

have not sufficient ussurnnco of this,
however, to rccommond that tho

The principal fact that shoulJ

that tho slto of Honolulu's Federal

Superintendent of Public Instruc
tion Ilabbltt Is making plans that
will give every school In tho Terri
tory of Hnwnll, regardless of Its po
sition or Isolation, tin excellent li
brary. This Is the tesult of his visit
to tho East n short lime ago, when ho
made a special stud of tho traveling
library systems In use. especially In
the Stntc of N'ew York
In Albany, N. Y., ho conforred
with Commissioner Draper of tho
:'ow York Stato Hoard of Education'
with regard to the system In use
thero of furnishing books to rending
clubs and schools. A special travel
ing library Is a feature of tho work,
and It mny bo that the locnl Idea may
be developed along the same Hues.
Mr. Ilabbltt Is expecting a Isrgo
amount of data by tho next boat from
tho Wisconsin Stato Library Associa
tion, and this will be tifed In build
ing up a local system.
Special committees anions tho
teachers hero and elsewhere on tho
Islands will piobubly be appointed in
tlie near future, ami to them all the
data and Information lognrdlng the
best manners of handling lia cling
school libraries will be turned over.
They will thus be able to wotk out
and formulate some scheme that will
bo found practicable for the Islands.
If a pioposttlon Is made up that Is of
"sufTlclont merit In the ejes of Mr.
Ilabbltt, ho will probably ask the
Legislature for an appropriation for
traveling school libraries.
Pamphlets may be (tailed and sent
out to the various schools In tho out-
