I am sorry to say that the majorily of the 1. gislators are perhaps not as familiar with the working svstcm of o n r I educa tional Department as liny migl t be, f loin the tact that we unfortu nately do not familiarize ourselvis with the situation in all its aspects. The problem involved in the edu cation of the children within this Territory is a question which lias taken much of the attention of the legislature each term (and this is my third year. ) It has been their aim to appropriate money sufficient to carry out the work in a manner that would be beneficial to the community. ''i may say that I have had many 'kicks' from school teachers o f the territory who h a v e thought thev were not treated rightly in the way of salarv, and in this connec tion I want to say that they m.ist not blame the legislature on this point. We ( the legislature) get our figures from the superintendents of instruction we must get it from them because they are the only people who know what is needed They give u-i their figures and we appropriate accordingly. There are teachers w hom I believe to this day are underpaid but we haw in the past given the Board of Educa tion more than they really asked Continued o-i page 4.

Dec. 31. -Puktii, a drunken Hawaiian residing here, attacked his wife with a knife last night, stabbing her near the shoul der and slashing her abdomen so seriously as to permit the expo sure of the intestines. A ladv friend of his wife, who was pre sent, utie'np'ed to interfere, and was also badly slashid, receiving a serious cut in the breast. The man immediately fled and h i s whereabouts is et u iikim w n. The women were sent to the Ma kaweli Hospital where their wounds were attended by Dr. West. Tie origin of the trouble is said to. be a d sptlle ill soiile laud traus section wherein the frk-nd of his wife agreed with her.

BRODIE IS GIVEN A JUICY LEMON Mr. H. H. Brodie, Supervising Principal of the Kauai Schools, Sir: 1 beg to call your attention to the fact that the teachers and scho lars of the Blank school are still waiting for those water pipes that wvre supposed to have been order ed some time ago. Water is car ried at each reevss from the hospi tal a distance of half a mile, more or less, by children barely large enough to carry themselves. Allow me to draw your atten tion to o n e more matter. the building is at present without a chair. The only thing that one teacher can find to sit on is a keg of nails without a lop. If you have never sat around the hole of n keg I would advice you to try it. Kindly look into the matter or we shall march out on strike. You bet we shall and you hurry up. I mean it, you may be sure. Miss BlunK Mr. Brodie explains that the department has remedied this by the erection of a $20,0uu school building. Kujtqr's kUt.
