THE OARDSN ISLAXD, JANUARY 11, 1916
NEW PENSION LAW
FOR EDUCATORS
Superintendent Kinney, of the
Department of Education, has pre
pared the following brief outline of
the new pension system for school
teachers, which will shortly go in
to effect:
"Any teacher now in the service
of the department can become an
applicant by paying one per cent a
year of her salary, payable in two
semi-annual installments of one-
half per cent each, provided how
ever, that she must become an ap
plicant before July 1, 1916. If she
desires to enter later than that date
she cannot be given credit for ser
vice rendered in the department
previous to the date of entrance.
I lie department may retire a
teacher who has served in the
schools of the Territory twenty-
five vears, of which twenty must
have been spent in the public
school. s
"Any teacher may rttire volun
tarily who has served thirty vears
in the schools of the Territory or
in the United States, provided
twenty years have been spent in the
public schools of the Territory.
Funds To Be Secured
"The funds from which the pen
sions are to be paid will be secured
as follows:
' Two and one-half per cent of
the school tax will be set aside for
this purpose. The total school tax
in 1914 was about $120,000.
Assuming that the tax will be
about the same this year, the amount
available for the pension fund will
be $3000.
"Approximately 250 teachers are
taking advantage of the pension
act, while the average pay of teach-
eis in this Territory is $903 a year.
It is safe to assume that the salaries
of the applicants, who are most of
them teachers who have been in
the service for a considerable
length of time, run higher than
this amount, say $1000 a vear.This
will make the annual contribution
from the teachers amount to $2500
Contribution By Teachers
'The act also provides that a
teacher who becomes a pensioner
must have contributed an account
equal to twenty per cent of her
salary per annum at the time of
her retirement.
"It we take the ten oldest teach
ers in the service and their salaries
as an example, we find that, if these
teachers should all retire on Julv
1, 1916, the twenty per cent con
tributed by them would to $2500
"This would give a total tolstart
with of $8000.
"The objection has been raised
in some quarters that the maximum
pension of $400 is an amount which
the recipient cannot live on. As a
matter of fact, the legislature did
not intend it to answer that pur
pose, but it did intend to provide
an amount which would be of
material assistance when taken to
gether with such other savings as
the teacher might have accumulat
ed.
Teachers Not Improvident
Teachers are, of course, not re
garded as being more improvident
than other people. It is presumed
that they make as wise provision
for old age as do others. As
matter of fact, $4f0 a year isequa
to the annual interest on $10,000
at savings hank rates; and a prom
inent banker informed me the oth
er day that ordinarily the premium
on an endowment policy, paying
$400 a .year after twenty-five years
would cost about $125 a year, or a
total, after twenty-five vears, of
$1975 and in this case the amount
paid in is lost if the policy holder
dies or gives up the proposition
whereas in the case of the teacher
who dies or changes her mind
one-half of the sum is refunded to
her heirs. However, I am not
here to defend or criticise the act
but to explain it and to answet
questions which ou may make
concerning it to the best or my
ability.
Must Apply Before May
In the meantime, it is my in
tention to ask the commissioners
to consider several features in con
nection with the Act. I shall prob
ably propose that those who wish
to retire and to have their pension
begin in July, must make an ap
plication to this effect in time to
allow its submission to the May
meeting of the commissioners, and
it probably will be found advan
tageous, in order to avoid compli
cations, to have the May meet
ing of each year set aside at the
meeting at which such matters are
decided upon. It will also be ne
cessary to make arrangements for
blanks to be furnished the Appli
cants, on which they can furnish
the necessary data relative to when
and where they taught, etc."
JUDGE DOLE SUSTAINED
Washington, D. C. Dec. 20,
The United States Supreme Court
today affirmed a decision of the
Supreme Court of Hawaii in the
case of the Inter-Island Steam
Navigation Company, Limited,
plaintiff in error, versus J. J, Byrne
and Daniel Kaleiki. Byrne brought
suit in the local court agianst Ka
leiki and served the Navigation
Company with granishee summons
in accordance with local statutes.
Answering, the Company set up
that Kaleiki was hired directly bv
it ( not through a shipping com
missioner) as a mate on the
Claudine" plying only in inter-
island coast trade, and asked dis
charge because of the exemption
from the attachment of the sea
men's wagesjby Sec. 4536, United
States Revised Statutes. The trial
court held that subsequent federal
legislation excluded seamen en
gaged in such coastwise trade from
the exemption and rendered judg
ment against both Kaleiki and the
Inter-Island Company, This ac
tion was affirmed by the Supreme
Court of the Territory, which, in
turn was affirmed by today's de
cision of the Uuited States
Supreme Court.
Accident Board.
The Accident Board held a long
meeting Wednesday afternoon and
disposed of a number of important
cases, one of which had numerous
ramifications and had been under
investigation for sometime.
