HONOLULU, Nov. 14. Now

routine work on the street corners,

officials to run tho government.
It is needless to say there are plenty

this island for an official. It is a
curious fact that tho horizon of the
average office seeker does not extend
beyond the edge of his hat brim,
consequently the governor will be
selected from among the stalwarts
on Oahu. .

Miss Bessie Lambert, Who Once Lired
In Wailuku Eaten By
There is an Hawaiian end to ne
arly every story published in the
world. This group houses so many
people who hail from all parts of
the globe that, whenever anything
of importance happens, there issure
to be some connection with Hawaii.
The latest connecting link in a
story of disaster and death is that
told in the Manila Daily Bulletin,
of October 22. The details of the
tragic death of Miss Bessie Lamb
ert, once of Wailuku are given.
The Lambert family lived hereyears
ago. W. H. Lambert was, for some
time ma nager of the Hilo Railroad
Company. The full report of the
horrible affair follows:

year old daughter of W. H" Lamb

tor. Miss Lambert, who was among
the passengers of t he ill-fated stea
mer, was attacked by a shark which
a napped off both legs. With trem
endous will power the heroic young
girl managed to swim ashore by
the use of her arms alone. But up
on reaching the beach she swooned
and died shortly afterwards from
loss of blood.
Miss Lambert was to have been
married, on November 8, to Char
les P. Clark, manager of the hard

pany. Preparations for the wedd

Supervising Principal Copeland Says That He Believes In
Vocational And Iudnstrial
Editor Maui News: The articles
on educational questions reprinted
by you in last week's issue of the
News seem to voice more less defin
itely the common criticism of tho
American public school Bystem that
it educates pupils away from
work,' and that it fails to prepare
them for any definite occupation in
life. The articlo from the Saturday
Evening Post is thoughtful, timely
and intelligent. Thero can be no
doubt that tho education of tho
future is to bo vocational education.
Thero is also no doubt that tho
rapid strides made by Germany to
wards commercial supremacy in re
cent years is very largely duo to tho
practical education furnished by
German schools. It may bo of in
terest to your readers to know, in a
general way, what tho German sys
tem is and how it is applied. In
Prussia and I beliove throughout
the German Empire a general
compulsory school law compels tho
attendance of children at tho ele
mentary schools until tho comple
tion of what corresponds in most
respects to the sixth or seventh
grade in American public schools.
This course is usually completed
whon the pupils are thirteen or
fourteen years of age. Tho parents
havo then permission to enter tho
pupils in vocational schools; of
which thero aro many kinds; to
enroll them in high-schools prepara
tory to professional or literary
courses; or to put them to work at
unskilled labor.
The olomentary school course, it
will bo noticed, is compulsory; and
vocational education cannot be un
dertaken until this course is com
pleted. Morcovor, this course pres.

In Germany it does not seem to
be thought that this elementary
education "educates awav from
work." On tho contrary, it is hold
to bo an indispensable prerequisite
to all intelligent, profitable work.
Suppose some Morgan or Carno-
gio were to endow the territory of
Hawaii with funds amnio to inau
gurate the German educational sys
tem here, with all tho necessary
vocational schools mechanical, tex
tile, domestic science, agricultural,
etc., how many of our public school
pupils would be in a position to
avail themselves of vocational in
struction? According to tho latest
available statistics, out of more than
20,000 pupils enrolled in the public
schools of Hawaii, 983, less than 5
per cent were in grades seven, eight,
high-school and normal school.
Of theso it is fair to assume that
not over half would be candidates
for vocational training, Binco there
is a considerable demand for clerk,
stenographers, and teachers. So it
appears that at least 95 per cent of
our school population never roach
