i While talking of the Non-partizan error that some of our
tfgood friends would like to commit,- let us consider a few of
uic icuciii iciuia,
A tew days ago a list of prospective candidates for the
Legislature and the Oahu Board pf Supervisors was present
ed before a meeting of political workers. " .
It should not be a matter of surprise to- well informed and
intelligent citizens that some of the men proposed were met
with the statement that their election would be most difficult
and other representative men should be suggested.
Immediately following this conference, there was published
in one of the papers of the city a general attack on individ
uals who should presume to oppose the Non-partisan idea.
Now let it be remembered at the very outset that party
lines will be maintained in the next campaign. . It the Non
partizan movement is carried to the lengths -that some sug-
est there is certain to be three parties in the held and the
folly of this was proved in the1 .-fiasco that" killed off' the
Civic Federation some years agoU

' we aeem u seii-evmcni inai a most remarxaDie state ot
affairs must exist if the first list of' names considered at a
conference were entirely satisfactory to everyone and con
tained the strongest first class-nen-to be-found and willing
to take up the work, and trial of public life. .
As we understand good politics1 and good government,
such a list is brought forward at .this time as a preliminary
for a fair discussion, to bring out suggestions, develop the
weak Doints and the strona points, and if possible throuah a
calm exchange of opinionslmptovgalltfdSdiust.v

The Bulletin is satisfied'that the neneral run of cit
izen residents of Honolulu who are classed as "the business
community" have no other axe to grind than efficiency in
Government, the election of men to office who appreciate their
responsibilities and are capable of meeting them intelligently.

first secure the men who will ake-limVf or public office and

This is the time to talk overthe future and make prepar-
. ations for the campaign.
The time has not arrived, however, to .call names, gouge
out one another's eyes and engage in,a childish threshing of
windmills before the real fight begins. - r r
If criticism developed from the first list of names present
ed for discussion, the sensible thing to do at this time is to
think up a tew more names. , .. , $ ,

(Jcrninn-Amcrlcnti teachers who held
their annual conference last July,
made u decision which may be of mo
mentous Import to the people of our
country. They Intend to mako their
next meeting a fifty odd days movable
convention, to bo held in Germany.
They will visit tho great educational
centers of the Fatherland; they will
sco how the children In the element
ary schools, the young folks In the
secondary schools and tho students In
the universities are taught, and will
come buck to America Inspired and
helped. So Important is this enter
prise on which the German American
teachers have embarked that It seems
a pity It should not be shared In by
teachers not of German extraction or
association. In the Fatherland they
have vocational public schools, and
pupils aro from the first advised what
fctudies to take to fit them for the
career to which they, or their parents
for them, took; and they do not lose
three months of school work out of
The convention Incident has called
lorth an editorial utterance from the
Rochester, N. Y. Post Kxpress, which,
while excessively harsh In Us cxng
geratlon of some American shortcom
Ings Is nevertheless of value to those
Interested In education. The Itoclien-ter-I'ost
Express says: "It there is
one thing which the education of this
country needs, It Is that thoroughness
for which the German has ever had
a natural leaning. It will probably
be found that the German curriculum
is not so showy as ours Is or the Gor
man pupil or scholar so superficially
brilliant an his American cousin. They
Insist too much on what may be called
foundation studies for the boy or girl
to find much encouragement to be
wilder his elders by the display of
unwonted knowledge. The Herman
teacher does not regard education as
a now discovery; ho knows very well
that the things which count aro tho
elementary things. He will tell you
that It la of more Importance, for the
child's mental growth that he should
bo able to do the simple things with
in his mental horizon than that he
should be able glibly to prate of
things which he can only sense (liar
rot-wise, not understand. It may lie,
said ot the American child that he Is
brilliantly Ignorant; the German
child, on the other hand, Is unshowlly
wise, lie can spell without making
mistakes and that is more than the
American child can do; he can cipher
without error, and' though, when it
comes to reading, he may lack the
precocious histrionic tricks of our
youthful Jeltersons and Modjoskas, It
questioned about what ho has been
reading, he will glvo a much mora In
seeing account of what it means.
"The trouble with our schools Is
that we mistake cramming for educa
tion; wo forget that tho olllco of ed
ucation, us the very word slgnllles, Is
not to pour In, but to lead out. The
recognition of this fact is at tho back
ot German Insistence on tho things
which make for character. From the
nttitude ot tho boys and girls In our
high-schools, you would think that
they were associates and collaborators
with tho professors, not young pco
plo sitting respectfully at tho feet of
people whoso duty It Is to teach them.
In Its Idolatry for tho childish ego our
system hus developed the evils of an
undisciplined Individualism. The
American child will dispute with the
teacher about his right to administer
punishment, exercising his "unbreath
cd wits" on topics the very names of
which he could not spell. That is bo
ginning at the wrong end. It Is on a
par with our daubing paper and call
ing It painting, with our writing a
succession of notes and dignifying It
with the name of a tune. The Ger
man child learns to obey his elders.
The teachers do not discuss the mat
ter and call It a lesson In ethics; they
merely let their Influence be felt In
such a way that the child follows hbi
natural Instinct to obey those who
are placed In authority over him. The
American child, on the other hand, Is'
encouraged In an attitude of chal
lenge and then we wonder, when he
grows up, how it Is that he talks to
his father In n tone which tho Ger
man father would bo tempted to rec
ognize by a blow. Yet the little Ger
man la not servile; there is nothing
clinging about him; the obedience
which he yields Is such reasonable
obedience as, when he grows up, will
make him a good citizen. It Is well
to remember, in this connection, that
there are fewer murders in Germany
than In any country in Europe, What
America's record Is In rospect of this
most terrible of crimes wo uro only
too sadly aware, Obedience and
thoroughness aro two of tho most sal
ient features of German education.
We know this from results as well as
from what educationists have told us.
Here then Is a matter which the
American teachers may well make the
theme of Inquiry and observation.
They will visit such great educational
centers as Heidelberg and Jena and,
