THE YICTORYJOR SCHOOLS.
When Governor Frear signs the School bill, as the Bul
letin has no doubt he will do, the public schools of Ha
waii will have scored the first real victory foA competent
and efficient education that has been recorded to the credit
of any Legislature and any Administration since the Terri
tory was organized.
vThe bill that goes to the Governor, Unless it contains
some technical complication that has not been discovered,
satisfies the demand for teachers of the children who have
been kept out of school by lack of funds and also for the
development of more practical courses of study.
Governor Frear in his message to the Legislature placed
the school legislation as of paramount importance. Mem
bers of the Legislature responding to this and also to the
partizan pledge under which they were elected, have passed
a measure which, in all its vital principles carries out the
recommendations of the School Fund Commission appoint
ed by the Governor and placed before the Legislature in the
form of a bill approved by the Administration and having a
practically unanimous community backing.
The School bill is the clearest-cut piece, of progressive
legislation that has been placed to the credit of the Legisla
ture at this session. And as it gives the Department of Pub
lic Instruction the opportunity so long sought ,it also carries
to the Department a very serious responsibility.
The Department of Public Instruction must make good.
It must use good discretion under this law or two years
hence the people will be calling for a reformation, just as the
fdll.es of administering the combined Public Works and
-Public Land offices have upset a system that had much to
recommend it, but could not overcome the incubus of an of
ficial who possessed no judgment in handling the broad
power given him.
As the situation will stand after the Governor signs the
School bill, it is "up to the Department of Public Instruc
tion." The task which that department faces is by no
means small. The results must be delivered in deeds, not
foolish promises and empty words.

The real objection af tho people of
Hawaii Is that tho l'ubllc Works De
partment has been run too much for
THE TAX BILL FIGHT.
With nil respect that Is properly
dun tho gentlemen who swung tho
whips, the clubs, tho ment axes, tho
weights of business, or whatever else
you may call It, In bringing ubout a
ro'versttl of the voto of the House of
llepiosontutives on tho Tax bill, tho
Hullo tin does not believe that
futtiio generations will rise up und
call them blessed.
This papor bellovcs that, should the
proposed tax limit plan finally enrry
thinugh tho legislature, the men who
have been ready to force It through
by fair means or foul will bo among
thn first to criticise their own work
nnd complain .bitterly of tho results.
In the long run this tux limit plan
will jesult In morn waste of money,
moro reckless expenditures, nnd less
Improvement In the efficiency of gov
ernment than the so-culled "wide
open" scheme presented to the Leg
islature by thn Admlulstiutlou und
passed by tho Senate.
If thero is a limit to the tux rati)
nntiied In tho law, It might well bo
ono nnd one-eighth por rent.
Of ono thing wu may bo certain, if
ii limit la named, the tax rate will go
to that figure, and If tho necessities
of government do not require nil Ihn
money derived from assessment at
this rate, ways will be found to make
use of It. That Is tho lesson of prac
