EXPENSIVE SCHOOL BUILDING.
Allrnlion is called by a corrcspond-nt to a change in llic sanitation equip
ment of tlie new scliooL house at Hanapcpc It appears that the origiml
plans called for a modern arrangement of the lavatories and water closets.
Apparently it became necessary to reduce the cost, so the cut was made in
this department, and the old-fashioned earth cloet is substituted in order to
bring the school house construction cost within the appropriation.
I Ins ccms a rcaonabh; solution ol the cause for the change It is the
usual solution. And it brings to the front one of the common faults of the
whole Territorial scheme of handling thcc things. Some blame the Legisla
ture and others blame the executive. As a matter of fact the people as a
whole arc as deserving of criticism av an) one. They too frequently "howl
about the cost" on account of a fear o taxes.
It may be said with some truth tint pupils attending a country public
school will get more practical education in learning to care properly for an
tarth closet than the) will from a modern sanitary equipment, the like of
which is not to be found in the home of one out of a hundred of the children.
lie this as it ma), the fault is still appircnt that in too rntny instances the
appropriations for educational buildings arc, in the interests of alleged ccon
cm), pliced at such a figure that the schoolhouscs are outgrown and inade
quate to the needs of the district before they arc completed. In the I lana
pepe school, for instance, it has become necessary to making a saving of two
thousand dollars. The questions naturally arise: Were the original specifi
cations lacking in a proper estimate of the costs? Did the Legislature appro
priitc a sum which was known to be less than would be needed to erect the
sthool house required by the attendance? Is this the result of a false econ
omy on the part of the Legislature or insufficient information from the De
partments of Public Works and Public Instruction.
It is a poor community investment to attempt a saving of money by erect
ing a building which wc know, when it goes up, docs not satisfy the demands
of a district, but merely gives the people and the children something belter
llian they had before. Such a policy is a thousand times more expensive than
to go boldly forward and bu.ld with a proper regard for the future.

(1 Dougher, who has just returned
from Honolulu, draws alttntlon to tho
alarming condition of ipmrnntlno af

ecru to keep close watch for leprosy
tnses Ills story in part Is as follows:
"With tho MtArtllng assertion that
one out of even sixty-four Hawaiian!
or part Hawatlans Is a sufferer from I
the dread dlseano of leprosy. Dr. Carl'
Ramus, chief tiiiarantiiio o Ulcer of tho

of segregation iws In tho Hawaiian
Islands ns appalling, nnd asked mem
hers of tho Chamber of Commcrco of
Honolulu to take some steps toward
reined) lug tlie evil In a paper rend
beforo a representative body of Ihu
Chamber of Commerce, Dr. Ramus
pointed out the alarming Itiorensn of
tho number of lepers reported during
recent )cars, niul attributed tho in
trenbo solel) lo the poorly adnilnls
tered laws no win nxlstcnco and the
lesult nf poll Ileal corruption.
Surgeon Contracts Disease.
"That tho dread disease Is no io
specter of persons was duly shown
when tho qunrantlno olllccr pointed
out that ono of his predecessors, a
surgeon who lint! contributed inutli to
the knowledge of leprosy, was him
self attacked, and, rather than live
the horrible pxlsleneo of tho leper,
tommltted suirlilo upon his retnrn.
Tho Increase of leprosy among tho
while residents In tho Islands, and
particular!) lis Honolulu, Is of alarm
lug ii upon Ions.
"When the fnct that Dr. Ramus had
read n paper on leprosy became nois
ed about Honolulu, I Interviewed sev
cral who had attended tho Chamber of
Conunerto meeting, but tould gnln
little from them In tho way nf Infoi
