To the Teachers, Scholars and the People
More than thirty years ago there was
a great and terrible war existing in tne
United States of America between two
sections of the Nation. One section
striving to divide the country- and to
establish a new government and a
strange flag the other to prevent the
dismemberment of the United States
and to sustain the sovereignty and supremacy
of tho flag which had been the
standard of the republic since the Rev-
olution a hundred years before.
The triumph of the army for the
maintenance of the union and for the
retention of the ''Old Flag" Is familiar
to you all, and the providence of an
all-wise God has been manifested in a
glorious progress that has followed the
victory guided by His omnipotent direction.
A product of this great war was lhe
Grand Army of the Republic an organization
born on the field of strife,
which has multiplied into a membership
of 300,000 soldiers who served in
the victorious army.
One of the principles of this noble
order is the inculcation of patriotism
a purpose to carry forward through
all time a love of country and devotion
to its welfare.
This Grand Army of the Republic is
a national organization, represented by
as many departments as there are
States in the union, and in each State
there are the representatives in smaller
uodies called posts. Lafayette Post is
one of these, with a membership of COO,
whose chief aim, besides its fraternity
and charity, is to instill patriotism in
the minds of the growing children-native
and foreign born who will be
the future citizens and rulers of the
land. For fourteen y&rs the posi has
found it to be a pleasant duty to labor
for a love of the flag which, through
its agency and example, now floats
above every school house throughout
the broad domain.
When the cruel yoke of Spain was
removed from the oppressed people of
Porto Rico and that beautiful iblaud
hailed with delight the approach of the
flag of freedom, this pest remembered
the children who would be blessed under
the banner of liberty and ent 600
flags to be an emblem of their release
from the bondage of inhumanity nd
Later, when the American soldiers
and sailors broke the chains which fettered
the liberty of the Philippines, the
pest, again, inspired by the welcome
and thanksgiving of the Porto Rlcans,
forwarded COO of the same flags to Manila,
where they now float over, the
school houses of those islands of the
And now, learning of the little brotherhood
of American union veterans,
the George "W. De Long Post of your
own "Gem of the Pacific," who,
through privation and sacrifice, were
laboring for an accomplishment almost
beyond their strength, strong as they
are in faith and hope and charity, Lafayette
Post nuas it one of its greatest
privileges to be permitted to assist in
the glorious achievement of planting
the flag that stands for the uplifting of
the human race wherever the wisdom
of God has placed them.
With you there Is much less to teach
you are a favored people. The "Gospel
of Christ was carried to you from
our shores and you have learned tho
Golden Rule and know little of the oppression
of man. But with tho Bible
goes the flag.
The inspiration of truth, is sustained
fbv the flag that is raised for the
of man. To love God and keep
the law is to obey the commondmeats
of a divine government and a righteous
As the sun rises here In the .East to
brighten the lives of all, so we raise
the flag to impress the people with th5
benevolence of man, guided by the
beneficence of the Creator.
It is a bright thought with us that It
has been our privilege to plant cur
bpautiful standard of strength and
right at home and abroad. The flag is
never folded; but as we sleep in peace,
confident of the protection it has
brought, it is flylns before the gentls
sephyrs of fullest day over cur kindred
of other climes.
In our dreams we shairhave sweet
visions of floating colors over Punchbowl

WILUlR i: BROWN, Adjutant.
R. J. Greene, on behalf of the local
G. A. R. post, presented the Sags to the
schools ot Hawaii through E. A. Mott-Smith,
Minister of Public Instruction.
Mr. Greene explained the significance
of the flag and what It stood for, adjuring
the pupils of all the schools to love
and respect and cherish it as the sacred
emblem of their country.
Mr. Mott-Smith made a, brief address
of thanks for the generous gitts for the
rchools and promising on behalf of the
pupils that they would ever be as ready
to defend the flag as. were the donors in
the dark days of civil strife forty years
"Our Flag" was sung by the pupils
of the High School, accompanied by
the tend, followed by a reading of Tennyson's
"Launching of the Ship" by
Miss E. Cartwright. The flag drill, arranged
by Miss Cartwright. was given
by U2 young women of the High School,
bringing fcrth generous rounds cf applause
for the manner In which the
drill was executed.
President S. B. Dole then addressed
the children, saying in part: "Yon
know that ladies are very fond of jewelry,
prizing above everything their
engagement and marriage rings. They
will never part with these. They are
the symbols, to them of what pleasures
and sorrows are in their past. A nation's
flag is tho same to it It calls up
the pleasant and the sorrowful memories
of the nation to the people. It Is
upon their public dwellings and government
buildings; it is carried in processions
and by the navy around the
world. Our Hawaiian flag will always
be dear to us for the memories that it
Mr. Dole then took an American flag
from the pile on the table and. holding
it aloft, said: "The number of stripes
orf the American flag is thirteen, representing
the original colonies. The field
of stars was originally thirteen, bat
since then it has grown to a perfect
galaxy. I know that you are all tired,
so I will say no more."
After the President's address came
the ceremony of raising the flag presented
to the High School to the top of
the pole on the school building. The
members of G. W. De Long Post came
from their scats on the veranda above
to the platform and stood in a row with
their heads uncovered. The following
young ladies held the lanyard and drew
the flag up, while the band played "The
Star - Spangled Banner," cverybody
singing: The Misses Daisy Smith,
Alice Johnson, May Schweitzer, Esther
Lando, Agnes Carrol, Ella Zeigler,
Clare Gertz and Anna Tucker.
COMMERCE OF GERMANY.
Imports the Past Year Far in Excess
Germany's commerce with the world
in all commodities, except the precious
metals, amounted last year to
according to a report to the
State Department from Acting Consul
Monaghan at Chemnitz. Her imports
the same year amounted to
exports, $949,858,000. The most
pronounced decrease in imports in the
last few years has been in wheat and
rye on account of the gain in home
production. Some lines of trade have
suffered setbacks, sugar exports having
fallen from S54.502.000 in 1S97 to
$45,G9a,000 in 1S99. This decrease is
said to be due to the lessened demand
from the United States.
SUGAR-MAKING IN VERMONT.
C W. Fitzsimmons of Underhill
brougfit 15 gallons of new maple sirup
into town recently, which represented
the product made from 12G0 trees during
the last week. He got 90 cents a
gallon for it. Mr. Fitzsimmons owns
one of the largest sugar bushes in the
State. He says that the flow of sap so
far has been light He further stated
that many owners of maple orchards
in Underhill and other parts of the
State were cutting them all down for
lumber, because lumber brought a. lot
or ready cash, and far the reason tb'.t
many farmers have become discouraged"
about the ravages of the forest
worm, which, is killing the sugar maple.
Others are tapping but a small
'percentage of their trees. Indications
point to a small supply of maple sweets

prove favorable. Burlington (Vt)
