America nnd perhaps Europe. She
wltl stop In San Francisco, will go to
Boston, likely Washington and will
proceed, if possible, to England, where
she will visit Kaiulani and the family
of A. S. Cleghorn.
The ex-Queen's departure was un
expected about town. Only a few mem
bers of the Ilul Aloha Aina and a few
friends were at the steamer to see her
off. She arrived In a carriage at 10
o'clock. Joseph O. Carter offered his
arm and assisted her up the gangway.
On deck she was met by Samuel Park
er and other friends. The steamer
sailed a few minutes later. She re
mained on deck until the vessel turned
into the channel, bowing adieus to
friends as she recognized them on the
When the ex-Queen arrived at the
dock she was veiled, but uncovered
her face upon leaving her carriage.
She was attired in a neat blank dress,
and carried a large bouquet of pink
carnations. Standing by tjio gang
way were a half dozen friends, to
whom she nodded. Robert W. Wilcox
was one ot the number and came in
for an extra smile.
Liliuoknlani's trip was planned
some months ago. She called upon
President nnd Mrs. Dole at their
Emma street home this morning and
informed them of her proposed trip
abroad. She stated that she would
visit relatives of her late husband at
Boston and would go to Europe if she
was able to arrange the voyage. She
was going for pleasure and for the
benefit of her health. From both
President nnd Mrs. Dole she received
xprer-sions of hope that her tour
would be a most pleasant one.
A request was made through her
secretary for a Foreign Olliee pass
port. Tills was granted. The docu
ment was made out and delivered to
her by Secretary Potter on board the.
China this morning.
On her trip the ex-Queen is accom
panied by her private secretary, Joe
Heleluhe, and Mrs. Kia Xahaolelua,
her chief attendant.
Will the ex-Queen go to Washing
ton? A person close to her says that
she will. There is also a report about
town that she will meet Kaiulani
there, and that the two ladles will
seek an audience with President Cleve
land in their behalf. In view of past
circumstances with respect to Kaiu
lani and her own abdication the role
accredited to Her is not believed as
probable. A report that -she has a
prearrnngemcnt to meet Mi1. Cleveland
and that Mr. Hlount will be a party
to the conference is discredited except
perhaps by a few natives.

Hawaiian hotel this morning. Mr.

half years, during which time he has
been around the world.

on which I took passage from San
Francisco en route to Japan, dropped

"You can possibly have some idea
of my complete surprise when I land

this outpost thoroughly American

me. The growth of the place has been
temarkable, so much in fact that 1
failed to recognize the surroundings,
they having been improved upon so
much. The numerous new buildings
and those now in the course of con
struction speak for the present pros

Acting in accordance with a sugges
tion of its president, W. 0. Smith, the
Board of Education has hit upon a
new plan which is sure to prove ben
eficial to the educational department
locally. There are eighteen public
schools In Honolulu district and thCre
are six 'members of the Board of Ed
ucation. Each member has been as
signed three of the city's schools, for
his or her personal supervision, thus
bringing the board in closer touch
with the educational work.
President Smith stated that he
found that the plan worked admirably
with the Board of Health, of which he
is president, and he saw no reason
why It would not do so In the educa
Each member will endeavor to make
a monthly visit to each one of the
schools, assigned him, and acquaint
himself witli all the details of the
workings ot the institutions. He will
be expected to make a monthly report
to the Board on the condition of the
-schools and make recommendations
for any changes or improvements
which he may think necessary.
"The plan Is a good one, I think,"
said President Smilh at the Board
meeting yesterday afternoon. "It will
give the Hoard a clearer idea of the
matters pertaining to the Honolulu
schools, which may come up from time
to time and will enable the Board to
act with a full knowledge. While each
member is. held in a way responsible
for the condition of the schools as
signed to him, there is no interference
with the work of the Inspector Gen
eral or his deputy. 1 believe that the
public instruction bureau will be
greatly benefitted by such an ac.ion
on the part of the 'ineiubrtrs of tins
The Hoard passed a resolution .,uth

The matter of closing the night
school for the holidavs was again
brought up for discussion. Deputy
Inspector General Scott stated that
the school kept running through the
holidays last year and that the teach
ers were unwilling that it should be
closed down this year if their salaries
were shut off for the same period.
President Smith thought that It was
not fair that the Board should pay the
salaries of the teachers during the hol
idays when they would not be engaged
In teaching. He stated that they re
ceived $2 per night each for a couple
hours' teaching. He did not see why
they could not secure labor during
the day time also.
The Deputy Inspector General re
marked that it would work a hard
ship on them in ease their salaries
were cut off during the holidays. On
motion of Mr. Bo won the matter was
deferred for' a week to enable Deputy
Inspector General Scott to ascertain
whether or not the pupils eared to at
tend school during the holidays.
The Board authorized the curtail
ment of the. staff of teachers of the
night school from seven to five. This

that a number of the children were

account of lack of space. In bad

The matter was discussed thorough
ly. It wns the general opinion of the
Board that as the Beretanla street
school was a central K)lut some day
there should be a large school build
ing erected there. To obviate the
present difficulties the deputy inspect
or general was authorized to build an
addition room on the rear of the main
building and to confine the cost of
such within $100,

request of Principal Dumas, of the
