Supcrintendant H. W. W.
Ox Mnndny last, the Legislative As
sembly ordered a Committee to wait upon
Ilis Majesty, and inform him of their read
iness to be prorogued on Monday next.
Tbe Assembly convened April lblh. aud
have continued their sittings steadily np
to the present, and by Monday will have
reached 5G working days. The session
-will be shorter than those of former years.
The second reading of the Appropria
tion Bill' was finished on Monday, and
there are still ten to fifteen Bills upon the
table, awaiting action, but they can easily
be dicposed of before Monday.
On Tuesday of last week, the Bill grant
ing Aid to Ocean Steamships (known as
the Subsidy Bill), passed its final reading.
This Bill, which has been the most warmly
debated one of the session, has called out
a very general expression of .opinion, both
in and out of the Assembly. It authorizes
the King, in Privy Council, to grant, in
h'w discretion, the sum of 50,000. under
conditions regarding prices of passage and
freight, and other minor regulations, to
any Steamship Company which will engage
to put a second steamer on the route be
tween this port and San Francisco, for
Under the present circumstances, and
with a duo regard to the future, it was wise
for the Assembly to confer this discretion
ary power, and thus open the way for se
curing any advantages in rapid communi
cation with the Coast, which may arise
during the time which will elaj.-e before
the nest session. The responsibility of
securing a valuable service, for the money
voted, will rest with the Government.
One of the most important Bills of the
session is that introduced by the Chair
man of tbe Committee on Education, Mr.
Hitchcock. It provides for the re-organ
izing of the Local School Boards, so that
one member of the Board shall be elective
and for the appointment and removal of
the teachers in the common schools by the
Local Board, subject to appeal to the
Board of Kducation.
Tbe management of the common schools
lias been a fruitful source "of differences of
opinion among those competent to judge
in educational matters, and while all pro
fess to be aiming at the same result the
greater efficiency and usefulness of the
schools the surest and most expedient
method of attaining this, is not so apparent.
If the Local Boards are interested, earnest
.and efficient, and have the good of the
.schools at heart, the schools will prosper.
"N'o central power, vested in the Board of
Education, can infuse life and activity into
tho ecbools of the outer districts, if the
Local Board, the parents and the people
ure indifferent to the education of the
children, and neglectful of tho welfare of
the schools. No amount of legislation
can comjtensate, or any industry of the
general officers of the. Board supply, the
momentum which ought to come from the
The system of common schools on these
Islands has never been as vigorous and as
effective os in other countries; simply be.
cause the Hawaiians have always depended
upon their Government, or tbeir religious
teachers to keep up enthusiastic movement
in tbe cause of general education.
The institution of higher grades of se
lect schools, which have sprung up all over
tbe country, during lbe last four years, has
had a tendency to incite both parents and
children, to desire and esteem a good edn
cation, and must have a reflex action for
good on the common schools.
Another important item passed by the
Assembly is the appropriation of $17,000
to be applied to the support of common
schools in those districts which are poor
and where the school tax is cot sufficient
to carry the schools through the year.
The law does not provide that tbe surplus
of one district may be applied to supple
ment the deficiency in another, and hence
ip a few, while there have been more funds
than were used, there have been many
where -the schools have been closed for
long periods. To remedy this evil, a fund
has been provided by which all the schools
nay be kejt pa through the year. The
improvements in the school law ore such
as mnst'meet -with general approval, and
we hope that all the friends of Hawaiian
education will heartily help to give them

Mr. A. F. Judd said be understood the
member for Ililo to say tbat he recommended

Mr. Hitchcock said tbat was what he said,
and he amended to insert, as per item, and
for the purposes of tbe Board of Education.

Mr. Martin amended to $6,200.
Item passed at $6,200.

Interest on school fund. $5,122,
Mr. Hitchcock moved to add to the bill an
item of $1,000 for a medical education
foreign countries for Hawaiians.
Mr. Koakanu objected to the item. He
said tbat Hawaiian boys had been to Punahou
and received a good education, but it bad
done them no good, and under tbe tutorsbip
of Mr. Cooke Kamebamena ill. bad been
educated, but what good had it done him. If
Hawaiians went away, tbey would' get so
wise tbat when they returned accomplished
doctors tbey wonld poison all tbeir friends.
He srid tbat tbe money had better be kept in
the country. He moved to indefinitely post

was a good doctor, teach a few boys. A school
could be established at the Insane Asylum
Mr. Hitchcock amended his motion by strik
ing out tbe words in foreign countries."
Mr. Lyons said that he bad for a long time
wanted to see medicine taught in this country,
and be would like td see a teacher of that
branch of science added to the corps of teach
ers at Lahainaluna, or have it taught at Hono
His Ex. F. W. Hutchison objected to having
it taught here. It was an important subject,
and reauired many teachers. A scholar could
onlv receive a proper medical education by at
tending a regular college. In most parts of
England tbe course was nre years, and in tbe
United States generally three years. There
were thirteen different things to be learned.
Item at $4,000 passed.
Mr. Hitebcock moved tbat the Committee
recommend the approval of the report of the
Committee on petitions and resolutions on in
Mr. Rhodes objected. He thought the items
should be taken separately.
Mr. Koakanu moved to reconsider the vote
on the item of $4,000 just passed. Carried.
His Ex. F. W. Hutchison moved to strike
out the item.
Mr. A. F. Judd objected. He thought tbat
it should be passed by all means.
Mr. Koakanu objected to tbe item, unless a
similar amount could be passed lor instruction
according to tbe ancient Hawaiian Customs.
He unly went to Hawaiian doctors himself.
That wes the reason of his good health. Once
in a while, however, he took small doses of tbe
Bible as prescribed by tbe Catbolie Cburcb.
The question was discussed irrelevantly at
some length, and finally Mr. Hitebcock re
newed his original motion for'an item of $4,000
to educate Hawaiian youths in medicine in

$4,000 for medical education of Hawaiian chil

The amendment was then carried.
Mr. Hitchcock renewed his motion tbat the

approval of the report of the commitlee on

His Ex. S. U. Phillips moved to pass as in
Mr. Hitchcock amended provided tbat the
Judge at Hilo did not draw tbe salaries of
Deputy Governor and Clerk.
His Ex. S. U. Phillips thought tbat the
Deputy Governor of Hawaii would not be will
ing to do tb"e work of two or three offices with
out sufficient pay, and tbat these salaries tak
en together, were not too much remuneration.
Mr. Hitchcock thought tbat the Deputy
Governor should not bold the offices of Judge
and Clerk, that often be was brought into con
flict with bis own decisions. He urged that
tbe offices should be seperated.
Mr. Lyuns was in favor of the points ad
vanced by tbe member for Hilo, but thought
tbe amendments would not be put into tbe
Item passed at $3,600 with Mr. Hitchcock's
Minister Resident at the United States,
Mr. Lyons moved to strike out tho item.
His Ex. C. de Varigny said that neither be
nor any of bis colleagues were candidates for
tbat office. .The trade of the Islands with the
United States was very important. The
United States kept here a Minister Resident,
Consul and a 'aval Agent, three important
offices. Of tbe immense trade of the United
States, but a small part was directed to this
country. Our relations and increasing trade
with tbe United States, rendered it important
that a Hawaiian Minister should be placed at
Mr. C. H. Judd amended to insert $10,000
to a Minister of Hawaiian parentage at Wash
Mr. Hitchcock supported striking out the
item. He said it was deferred until news
could be receh ed concerning tbo Reciprocity
Treaty, but no news bad been received up to
this date, and now tbe item bad better be
striken out, and tbe amount be applied to
other appiopriations. "
Mr. llder was in favor of tbe motion to
etike out the item. He did not think tbe
money could be spared, and if it could, $10,000
would not be enough to keep a Minister at
Washington. Tbat tbis country was through
its troubles and its independence guarranteed.
We could not afford to eendDipIomatio Agents
to all the courts represented here. But if the
item passed, be should vote for the amend
ment of Mr. C. II. Judd.
Mr. Rhodes said tbat it was a mistake to
suppose tbat the Hawaiian nation was through
its troubles. Nations were like people, always
in trouble until death. As the importance of
the nation augmented, Its agents abroad should
be increased in number. He favored the item
as in the bill.
Item was indefinitely postponed.
Encouragement of agriculture and immiirra-
Mr. Wilder amended to $30,000. He said
that the nation was fast wasting away, and to
preserve tbeni something must be done. In
the south seas there were a people much like
the Hawaiians, and by bringing them here a
new vigor would be imparted to the nation.
There was a great scarcity of laborers here, it
was almost impossible to obtain Hawaiians,
and when tbey were obtained, generally, tbe
native shipped on account of debt, and never
saw himself out of debt. It was tbe practice
on the plantations to keep them in debt. He
was ashamed to say it, but sucb was tbe case
It bad been estimated tbat $30,000 would bring
in i,ouu men anu i.uuu women, tbe plan

Mr. Wilder proceeded, that the importation
of 650 Chinese at a cost of $7,000 had paid
back yearly $J,ui'u, proving mat it was a good
investment. At present there was "a great

of Immigration, and tbat tbey would take
immediate measures to secure vessels and
means, to bring in people of both sexes. '
Mr. Keawehunahala said tbat be was in
favor of the item at $10,000, tbat if it passed
at $30,000 tbe resolutions introduced by mem
bers for internal improvement would not re

foreigners were introduced the Hawaiians

His Ex. S. II. Phillips move! to make the
subsidy $10,000. He tbought that the mem
bers would all agree on the value of that Sec
tion, and support its passage. The Company
owning bad a monopoly, the passage of the 1st
section would do away with tbat. Tbe con
tract would pay $10,000 a year, but tbe pres

The attempted aseat-eination of Prince Al

exclaiming, "Oh, God I He has broken my

In Memoriam. We take from tbe Bangor
Daily Whig the following notice of the Hon.

tbe office of a Judge of the District Court of

ceptance of the bar and tbe people. In bis
official capacity he Mas eminently distin
guished fur ability. Impartiality, dignity and
suavity. Ilis mind was clear, analytical and
ready in appl ing the learning he poesi-ed

This Is high praise, but its truth will be con-
tinned by those who Knew mm most Inti

Judge Allen left a very large circle of
