It Is with considerable satisfaction

that Is likely to become common, If

The Influence of coolie's Is now nnd
always has been to degrade labor. A
man or u boy will refuse' to d6 a Cer

Jr ,he chlld"!I of our Puullc
scnoois are inugni mat agricultural
labor Is honest, dignified, and remu
nerative toll, when well performed,
we then have accomplished the dual
benefit of raising the standards of la
bor and "cltlzcnUIng" the employer
of every Industry In the Territory.
Hawaii has becomo so Impregnated
Willi the Idea that agricultural labor
on the sugar plantation must be dono
by tho slow-witted coolie, living In
barracks, Unit It Is hard for some peo
ple whose thoughts Senator Coclbo
expresses, to think of a mnn who en
Joys tho rights and privileges of citi
zenship to contemplate a future that
carries him Into the sugar field or
As a matter of fact, the gang-labor
system Is rapidly passing from the
sugar fields of Hawaii. The first
movement toward Its disappearance
was when contract labor was wiped
out. The movement towaril a larger
measure of independence for tho man
of toll has been going steadily for
ward, until today we find many sugar
properties where there Is practically
no day-labor. The whole sugar crop
Is produced by men who contract to
cultivate the various fields, and their
financial reward Is In accordanco
with their own success In cultivation.
Now it Is time to take a step fur
ther In advance.
Wo hnvo young men growing up In
the Islands they are future citizen!,.
When they leave tho schools they
are free to become workers or hood
lums go to work or Jail.
Is there any doubt that the future
of the child and of the community fs
best served by training the boy and
the girl In the rudiments of agricul
ture, at the same tlmo Impressing
upon them that the poorest laborer,
oven tho "coolie" of tho plantation,
Is more deserving of honor than the
hoodlum loafor who feels that certain
lines of work nre "beneath" him?

tory. The children of the Territory
should bo taught that the pick and
shovel wielded In tho sugar field Is
no more degrading than the same
Implements used on the roads. And
there Is much belter promlso or a
profitable future In the sugnr field
than on tho road.
Senator Coelho wants to know
whoso children are to be trained to
understand tho dignity of agricultur
al labor. Moat certainly-every child
In the public schools. Tho Info
American knows no division of raco
or family. The common school Is the
cruclblo of American citizenship;
work Is tho great !oelcr of capacity
nnd ability. It Is not a enso of "who's
who," but of which citizen can do
the work and do It tho best.
Another point which tho Senator
makes Indicates a need for more care
ful study of the Federal departments.
The demonstration scheme carried
out on the mainland, nnd which
might properly be copied here, Is un
der the direction of tho Agricultural
experiment station workers and not
the Colleges of Agriculture; Dr. Wil
cox, and not President ailmore, Is tho
man to be teen.
'And In connection with the 'Agri
cultural College the Senator grabs an
other fifth wheel. Tho effort Of Su
perintendent Ilabbltt to train the
children In agriculture Is tho one
line of teaching that will equip tho
boys and girls of ambition and capac
ity for advancement to the college
standards and ihus gain the cduca
tlon that will put them In command
Children must walk before thoy
may run, In agriculture as In any
We nre particularly Interested In
the letter of tho Senator because It
leflects so much of local sentiment In
komo districts nnd lines up so closely
with Ideas that wore rampant oh the
mainland fifty years ngo. Our fellow
citizens over the way havo In moro
recent years found that ugrlculture
Is more attractive than many of the
professions and In many Instances
Tho samo change of sentiment will
tnke place In Hawaii, and we have
ho doubt that tho Senator from Maul
will be 'one of the first to realize the
error of his doh'cl'uslon and be among
tho workers to promote tho plans for
egrlcullurai education for tho chil
dren of the schools. Thus ho will aid
In giving llawatl a stronger and more
tollable citizenship, and mako our
plantations he center of hundreds
of prbsper6us homes and an Intelli
gent, loyal citizen population.

With School Teaching
Editor Evening Uullettn:
It. reply to your request for an ex
pression concerning Hun. S. M. Da
mon's Interview In )our bariir ot the
lilt Ihstnht, I Would say that, Jn tho
main, he is correct.
Tho Idea of Interesting children In
agriculture Is excellent, but the at
tempt to make them laborers Instead
of training them to be Independent
cltlzons, earning lltolr livelihood out
of thelf 'own toll and out ot the soil
they cultivate Is abominable.
rrhe natural tendencies of chil
dren tb drjfl Into arlcd vocations aro
so evident that to inculcate Into the
young kulhds tho princlplo which Is
now being advocateil to be pressed
Into the public school system ot Ha
waii, will not produce the result de
sired, anil tho efforts In that direc
tion would be dasted, Wlint parent
Id willing to have his child educated
to bo a cnhe-strlfipcr or Irrigator or
any other kind of field work, for
which tho highest wage Is 6 cents
to It per day, working from 12 to
14 hours per day, and hdthlng for
any over tlmo? And whdsa children
uro to bo trained to be "plantation
field laborers," nnd whose to be train
ed for tho "whllo-khlrt professions"?
It Is very evident in Hawaii today
that it is the purposa of thosa who
havo become wealthy out'of the ka
nakas' land to force them out ot all
chances of becoming Independent cit
izens nnd drive them to tho fields. In
Honolulu today, I seo In most offices

Education whose husban'd can sup

the case ot localities where It would
be Impossible to secure teachers, as
In many places In tho outer districts
on Oahu, Kauai, Maul, and Hawaii.
Tho policy of'ttfo Hoard should have
been, THAT where tho husband re

himself and wife, ho alone should be
employed, tho wlfo should not be
made to ttob another lady ot equal, If
not ot moro ability, who depends for
her support upon her own tolls. Dis

women are kept on In the service,

S. M. Damon Is one ot the tew de
scendants of tho early missionaries
whom wo HawAllans love, becauso ho
Is n true friend of tho Hawaiian,
and he loves us ns though he wnro a
native Hawaiian himself. From
reading his Intervlow, I see, It Is his
earnest desire to have more sons and
daughters of Hawaii take more in
terest In their homes. He wants
them to acquire and build homes, nnd
out of their holdings to build up
some Industry whereby they would
become Independent and happy cltt
ions. And It Is his Idea, ns I Judge,
that those who fall n their training,
and who cannot be made to appre
ciate the value ot Independent ex
istence, should be trnlned to be skill
ful In the handling or performance
of simple works around factories,
etc.; and those who are fools enough
to rcmnln fools, send them to tho
fields to work with the Oriental cool
ies. It that Is true, then I heartily
agree with our friend,
Mr. Damon has given me a very
good suggestion by his Interview,
which I will see carried out In tho
coming session ot tho Legislature. It
Is something which has dono n gicnt
dcnl of good to the Western farmers
a few years ago, on tho mainland.
As you may remember, when tho
farms on tho mainland were going to
ruin owing to the poor crops pro
duced, tho Government nt Washing
ton became Interested, nnd sent out
experts with carloads ot materials
and sccd9 for giving tho farmers per
sonal Instructions ns to what to do
in order to save and Improve their
crops, stock, etc. .We all know the
Vcsult of that assistance. The same
could bo done hero In n simpler way.
The Legislature provide for the ex
penditure, and tho College ot Hawaii,
the Federal Experiment Station and
tho Territorial II urea u of Agriculture
send 'Out experts In tho several sub
jects which Interest the farmers in
the several localities of our Islands,
nnd spend sufficient time at encb
place giving practical demonstra
tions nnd Instructions free. Field
demonstration docs more eftectlva
work than room talk.
In conversation with Mr. A. F.
Judd a few days ago he called my -attention
to n gentleman who passed
by, who Is an expert on hog-ntlstng.
Such a man should be sent at Gov
ernment expense to Kit la and other
places on Maul and other Islands
where hog-ralsing Is carried on.
I will take this matter up with
President Gllmoro when I call on Itltn
early next week.
