The main building of tho jail, ho said,
was "filthy, damp and overcrowded.
Filthy because it 1r not properly

arc passed on from one prisoner
to tho other without being wnshod,

sprinkling nround insect powder. Fumigation
has not been resorted to.
"Tho prisoners are supllcd with ono

cotton. This, with a piece of .dirty

When n prisoner is punished for breaking
tho rules of the prison, he is placed
in a cell on bread and water and is
allowed no blanket or mat, but must
sleep on the damp cement in this manner

By-Laws Drafted for Organization
of Greater Chamber
Whllo tho spcclnl committee, repre
scnting tho chnmbcr of commorce, tho
merchants' association and tho civic
union has completed tho draft of bylaws
for n Greater Honolulu Chambct
of Commorce thcro are still n numbor
of problems to bo workod out,
to certain members of tho committee
and officers of the organizntioos.
Ono of theso is tho question of carrying
on the direct work of tho organizations
under the consolidation. Thus
tho work now pertaining to the merchants'
association is important nnd
will have to bo followed up by tho
greater chamber; also tho wide scopo
of tho present chnmbcr will hnvo to bo
considered, While tho civic union's ac
tivities will bo merged.
Ii. Tonney Feck, chairmnn of tho
civic committee which is working for
tho formation of this great body of
commercial nnd business interests for
Honolulu, is optimistic. Speaking
of tho work so fnr accomplished
nnd to bo dono Mr. Peck said:
"Ab the first basis of action, the cham
ber of commerce and tho merchants'
association will como together in one
body. Then tho do6rs will bo openod
to a moro comprehensive, membership,
and tho uctivitics of tho greater chnm
her of commerce enlarged on lines
somewhat similar to thoso adopted in
recent years, by Boston, ltochcstcr,
Cleveland, Lios Angeles and San Francisco,
so that tho organization will bo
in touch with all tho currents of community
cnterpriBo and development,
civic as well as commercial.
"Tho joint committco has hold two
meetings. It met Monday and adjourned
to tho cnll of the, chair. , In tho
meantime the members will copnult
with their respective organizations, by
which tho proposal will bo discussed
and altcrod perhaps in many ways before
being finally adopted, if tho movement
is to go on to consummation."
Commenting briefly upon tho results
of tho consolidation so far as it may
affect tho present organization of tho
promotion committco, E, A. Berndt said
"Undoubtedly tho promotioa
will disappear as a
body if the aehomo goos through.
There will bo no commercial body outside
of tho greater chamber of commerce."
Important Work Necessary.
E. I. Snaldine. former president of
the chamber of commorco, who workod
hrird for a greater chamber of commerce
whilo at tho head of tho present
chamber and who is chairman of tho
joint committco, wns inclined to bo
enthnsinstie, when seen yesterday, ovor(
tho prospects for the new body. ITo
believes thnt It win bo productive of !
great benefit to both Honolulu ns the'
capital and commercial center of tho
Territory as well as for tho cntiro Territory
Mr. Spalding ncccntuntcd tho necessity
of providing in tho now chnmbcr
for the work liero so important to the
rotnil business interest"), now looked
after by tbo merchants' nssocintron.
Cooperation with tho commercial
of 'the Jnpancso and Chinese
is alio nn important question, for
it is proposed that all tho interests of
tho city sliould pull togothor for
good of tho community.
Tncidentnlly, whilo tho copies of tho
proposed by-laws aro being discussed
by the menibors of tho two organizations
directly involved, thoro is
comment concerning tho various
questions covered in theso by-laws nnd
it is thnt thero will be somo
amendments boforo they nro finally
adopted as a whole. Among theso is
that of membership, which is wido ns
to qualifications for membership, but
circumscribed ns to tho manner of election.
The merchants' association will hold
its annual meeting tomorrow and it
is moro than probablo that action will
bo taken upon this important question

(From Wendnesday Advertiser)
Armed with n mnrringo certificate

of matrimony with .lames Steelo In
San Francisco In 100S, Mrs. Theron
Steelo arrived in tho city yesterday
morning prepared to provo that sho is
the legnl wlto of tho former street car

Mri. Steole, accompanied by her sister,
Virginia Sciaroni, proceeded at
onco to the ofllco of District Attorney
ll.AV. llrockons, whoro information that
sho furnished resulted In tho issuanco
of another warrant charging Clnrkwith
adultery. Ho was arrested nnd taken
to tho county jail, for although ho furnished
bond in the bigamy enso, ho wns
unablo to arrnngo for bail In tho
charge, yesterday nftornoon.
On her nrrival Mrs. Stcolo Bald thnt
prior to lenving San Francisco sho had
received Bovcral anonymous letters from
Honolulu threatening hor with death if
sho enmo to Honolulu to testify against
Clnrk, and it is supposed that as tho result
of this statement, District Attorney
Ureckons thought it advisable to
send Clark to jail.
Wanted to Get Hands on Him.
Mrs. Steelo was extremely indlcnnnt
when informed that tho man sho claims
ns her husband had said thnt sho had
lived with him hero without tho formality
of marriago, and expressed n fervid
desire to get her hands on him and
foreo n, retraction.
When shown tho mnrriago certificate
Mrs. Steelo brought with her, Clark
smiled. "Thnt shows that n man named
Steole married tho woman, but it
doesn't sny anything nbout Clark, nnd
you enn't provo that I am Steele," he
"Oh, I think I can," said Brockons,
nnd forthwith produced an application
wnion Ularic had mndo out lor a
box In tho nnme of Jesse C. Steele,1
which according to his mother is his
right nnme. Clnrk had nothing to say
It appears that when Steelo went to
San Francisco from Pennsylvania, ho
scoured a position as motorman on tho
street enr lines.
Tho times were troublous nnd foaring
thatif ho was Injured, tho publication
of his nnmo might unduly alarm his
parents bnck In Pennsylvania, ho went
to work nnder tho namo of Jamos

references nnd other papors woro mndo
out in that namo, and bo he continued
to uso it horo, although, it is charged,
ho got his mail under his right nnmo of
Josso C. Steelo.
Virginia Sciaroni claims to havo been

A case is pending nt present beforo

Department Public Instruction
Proposes Building Open
schools may yet solvo tho
problem of overcrowded classes which is
now confronting the department of public
instruction in tho Territory of Hawaii.
Superintendent W. T. Fopo nnd
Inspector T. II. Gibson havo been giving
tho question consldcrnblo attention
in their efforts to reduce tho inconvenience
to pupils nnd teachers nliko.
caused by the, presont cramped 'school
schools havo been in uso In
Qormany, Franco. Italy, Spain nnd othor
European countries for years whorovcr
conditions permit. Recently tho system
has bocn tried in different sections
of California and sovernl counties In
that State nro now engaged in erecting
buildings Intended simply to protect tho
inmntes from the wind and rain, but
otherwiso entirely open. Besides ho
me economical and simnlo in construc
tion tho structures nro moro
sanitary, far moro healthy and it has
been found that pupils studying in tho
open nir havo boon los liablo to illness
ana far moro apt in tlioir studies than
pupils confined in poorly ventilated
It now dovclop thnt of
theso schools aro being usod in
Kauai nnd hnvo been giving comploto
satisfaotion. Twenty-four of theso
structures were built last year. Tho
buildings aro big enough to accommodate
largo classes and aro simply constructed.
In most casos wooden floors
aro used, but oven this is not nocessary.
A -wall about threo feet in height marks
tho boundaries of tho room. Uprights
nro fastened to this, across which a
thatch roof con bo placod. Whero conditions
mado it necessary tho intervening
open space can bo covorod with
screen, thus keeping out everything but
fresh, air. Thus tho children
aro practicnlly in tho opon during
thoir ontiro study periods. Tho maximum
cost of theso structures is said to
bo about $500 onch.
Ideal Conditions Hero.
It is understood thnt tho budget for
Honolulu plans for tho construction of
a numbor of tneso buildings. Conditions
for school work aro said
to bo more favorablo horo than
in tho Territory.
"Wo havo nl ready started tho platoon
system in two schools in this county,"
said Inspector Gibson yctorday.
"Tho open-air schoolrooms would, of
course, mako this unnecessary, but wo
havo tho problem to meet now nnd I
believo our first experiment is going to
provo a success.
" "Wo found conditions ns to over
crowding almost ns bad nt Wnlkiki ns
at Manoa. Thoro nro pupils'
in tho primary class thoro nnd thoy havo
ocen in ono small room. xiinnKs to too
ability of n practised teacher theso are
now being taught in rolnys, a portion of
tho pupils being nllowcd to piny outside
tho room whilo their classmates
nro reciting. In this way nil of them
are being enred for nnd In such a wny
that they liko to go to school. What
is more, ono teacher is doing tho work.'
"Also nt tho Kaneoho school,
tho Fall, wo havo introduced tho
platoon system hecnuso of overcrowded
conditions. At that plnco thoy had
sixty-five pupils in tho primary grade
nnd In a verv small room. Thoy linvo divided
this class into two divisions, ono
of forty, tho other of twenty-five pupils.
Theso divisions nro given
during which time one division
is allowed tn play around tho building
nnd in sight of the teacher. At
that place it is not necessary to employ
a monitor, but in Honolulu this courso
would pcrhnps bo necessary. Tho
teacher in Honolulu would not bo nblo
to wateli the children nt play and nt
the snme time attend to hearing recitations."
Getting Practical Training.
Supervising Principal C. W. Baldwin,
of tho Kiiahuinnnu schools, is solving
tbo problem to a considerable extent
nnd at tho namo time providing practical
pedagogic experience to several
membors of tho senior class of tho Normal
School, which is elpso by. Thcro
nro eighty pupils in the primary grade
of tho Kaahumanu school. Theso aro
divided into four divisions and each
dav three of tho seniors from tho Normal
School assist thp regular teacher in
recitations. These are held In tho open-air
when weather conditions permit and
the work hns beea very satisfactory,
according to Principal Baldwin,
Tho double, or platoon, system is also
being tried nt the I'ohukalna school. J,
('. Davis, supervising principal of tho
lioynl schools, says there is no doubt
nbout tho HiirceNg of tho expcrlent,
"Tho fact that tho oxtensivo overcrowding
occurs only in the primary
grades of tho schools in tho Territory Is
easily explained." said Inspector (lib-son.
"During tho past few years tho
chllilrmi of tho newcomers have lieon
arriving nt school age nnd n most of
the youngsters nro either Orientals or
from Kiiropo nnd without a knowledgo
