PUBLIC INSTRUCTION COMMIS
SIONERS AND THE COUNTIES.
Commissioner AlKeu of Maui nsk
id nt the first meeting of tho Hoard
of Public Instruction whether the
Commissioners would have to supply
n teacher If the Supervisors of any
County dcriJeil they wanted a new
school house In some locality where,
there Is none now.
Speaking for tho people, the II it 1 -I
c t I n would suggest that It Is up
to the Coiiimlssloneis of Public In
stinct lou to supply it teacher wher
ever the people nsk for one, whllo
piomlHliig to fmiiMi the st'hoolhuusn
us well iih tho funds to suppuit the
teacher and tho house.
We fnll to Bee why tho Commis
sioners of Public Instruction should
explode before they have been
thientened with any friction matches
In the vicinity of their senslthe
Commissioner Molr says tho ten
dency of the public schools Is to
ward politics. Mr. Molr Is n splendid
geiitlemnn. Hut Instead of tnll.lng
it the Legislature ho should more
properly lambaste sonic of his bi oth
er plantation managers who are of
tho stay-at-home type, nnd let poll
tics iind the government go to tho
'lemlnltlon bowwows In his County.
Thcso Commissioners from tho
lutstde Islands appear to have just
earned that tho Hoard of Public In
itructlon, practically considered,
icvcr wus anything hut an advisory
body. The excited members of tho
Legislature decided that the Super
intendent should have less power,
and they forthwith organized tho
Hoard In such a milliner that the Su
perintendent Is mom Independent of
the Commissioners than ever, but
not of the County Supervisors, 11c
forc this present Hoard session ad
join ns It will bo absolutely necessary
for It to pass a icsolutlon that will
practically put tho whole manage
ment of the Hontd's affairs In tho
Superintendent's hands until tho
next meeting, sometime ncs.t Janu
ary. Someone may quote this ni an evi
dence of the nonc')iupus-mentiincs8
of tho Lcglslatuie, Let him iccall
however that It was nil done nt the
command of tho enlightened and
piogrcsslvc membeis fioin the out
side dlstilcts, iucludlng Kaunl.
Commissioners nro wasting hi oath
railing at tho Leglslntuic. Hefore
they aio through they will And that
whut Is left to ho done by this ad
visory CoaimUslon is a man's-Blze
task, if well done.
If thcso Commissioner, especially
the outside Islanders, show tho
right spliit, each one will do some
thing whllo In the Hoard meeting
nnd also when ho gets home, besides
complain at what should havo been
Lots of good woik for education
fines tho Coi:iinlxloucr with com
mon sense, liberal ideals, enthusi
asm for woik, ami n nattual or cul
tlvatcd Inclination to follow along
tho lines laid down by tho represen'
tatlvcs of the people.
Each Commissioner can do a thou
sand times more good by co-operating
with tho Supervisors of Ills
County nfto rtho Hoard work Is
completed In Honolulu than Is pos
sible by sitting on tho high seat of
Educational Pomposity whence, ho
declaims loudly against tho Legisla
tors nnd perhaps the Supervisors and
tho people generally.
Each Commissioner In his or her
district should mnko It a part of his
pr her dally duty to keep In touch
with tho Supervisor partlculaily In
terested or In charge of tho public
schools of tho County, I.ven Super
visor are human. Nearly all Super
visor, except possibly those on Ha
waii, aro willing to learn, nnd we
believe that the great majority of
tho Supervisors and the people be
Hove In good school- kept In well
repaired nnd comfortnblo school
Abovo all things. It Is not the duty
of tho Commissioner of Public In
struction to stnrt out upon their
work with the conviction that tho
now system is the conception of n
perverBQ and nddlc-patcd Legisla
ture nnd can't ho madq n success
nnywiiy. Success Is not hulldcd on
any such foundations.

necment of tho educational affairs
tif tho Territory Is absolutely cor
rect, though there may ho eriors In
some minor details.
Tho Hoard of Public Instruction
should piopcrly have charge of tho
course of study. It should vouch for
the teachers and ussuiu the schools
I'.rst-tlnsH teachers, or tho best to bo
had. livery Island division should
bo rcpivsented on tho Hoard.
It Is eminently fitting for tho
County Supervisor, I, v., the local
municipal government, to havo
charge of the construction nnd euro
of the school houses. They are di
rectly answcrablo to the people. And
If tho peoplo of the various Counties
of tho Territory nro not sufficiently
Interested lu the public schools, do
not euro enough for their chil
dren, to sec to It, demand and com
mand that the school houses shall bo
large, nlry nlid In good repair nt
all times, then tho Torrltory of Ha
waii Is not us capable of Belf-govern-ment
ns It Is generally credited.
Our Commissioners, by some of
their prcllmlnaty rental ks, have tak
en tho bit In their teeth nnd run
nwny with tho Idea that tho peoplo
don't know nuthln', don't wnnt to
know nuthln' and ought to be
Perhaps that's right. Hut tho
Commissioner rhould first pave tho
way to popular Intelligence by care

tion to pmvo tho truth of tho Phari
saical proposition that tho Commis
sioners of Public Instruction are bet
