?A Valtifihtf of Pl,''c Instruction to tho Gov-
raiuauit, ; crnor is of interest to every person
JRepOrt I in the territory, or out of it, who
J lias the best interests of our pro-
ttA-i-i gress- at heart. Like all such
papers from the present Superin
tendent it is carefully prepared, touches the vital matters, points out
the important needs, gives clear views of the ideals and direction of
effort of the department, is generous in praise of effectiveness by those
through whom the work of the department is carried on, and is stimu
lating and optimistic as to results of school work. While the report is
not over-laden with references to the reports of the heads of divisions
in the department, there is such reference to fhem as makes them an
integral part of the report of the biennial work, and not mere appen
dices of no interest in themselves.
There is a contagion of high ideals in the Superintendent's report.
After reading it one has a higher opinion of our public schools, and the
work they are doing, in part, perhaps, because, the public schools, like
the poor, being always with irs, custom stales them to the point that we
forget they represent more of thought and care and self abnegation,
and striving after ideals and altruism, than almost any other institution
that we have. Wc forget that it is the one institution which is common
in its experiences 'to all of us, for there is scarcely one of us who has
not been influenced by personal experience in the public schools or that
almost, equally intimate experience through our households, though
there is scarcely one other experience common to us all. But one can
not read the' Superintendent's report, without feeling something of that
esprit du corps Which the bond of common experience in ennobling
pursuit, always engenders.
There could be no stronger argument for conscionable dealing with
the school teachers of the Territory in the matter of salary than the fol
lowing simple statement of the matter which is almost the first thing in
the Superintendent's report :
Since the cut catnc in June of last year I have studied the matter with
great care1 and I feel assured, that it was too radical a measure. Of
course you were acting for the best interests of the Territory at the mo
ment but it became a constantly carking canker of discontent. If the
finances of the Territory should require such radical measures in the
future I would recommend some other measure to meet the deficiency.
However we must 'hope that no such acute a crisis may occur again.
Certainly provision at the present should be made to prevent any simi
lar crisis with such very unpleasant results.
As to the means by which to prevent a similar condition of affairs in
the School Department it is very difficult to advise. If the people of
this Territory desire good schools they must pay for them and a high
efficiency cannot be kept up without a proper salary payment. The
public school teachers of the Territory have ccrtainh never been
overpaid and yet what is drawn for salary seems "a very large
amount of- the income of the Territory. The highest salary that lias
even been paid has been $225 a month and this to only one teacher.
When any one considers how much resposibility, how much previous
experience there, lias been required to fit the teacher for this position,
the amount seems very small as compared with the success of people in
other lines of work. The amount that has been asked by the Superin
tendent jill barely suffice to make the alteration in salaries and also
the additional salaries required for the new schools.
No more generous appreciation could be crowded into the same num
ber of words than is contained in the following almost bald statement
of facts about the Norma school:
The Normal 'school is one of the most important educational institu
tions that the. Department has under its charge. Under t'he greatest of
difficulty this school has been carried on in the make-shift buildings on
Fort 'Street. The Normal pupils, as they graduate, -have been sent out
to various positions upon the Islands and with hardly an exception they
have proved q the greatest value to the educational upraising of the
There could be n) stronger, appeal to cherished sentiment, to past
association ,an'd to honorable, achievement, than this reference to Laha
inaluna: f Lahainaluna lias, been entirely regenerated. The old buildings have
been entirely removed and two new dormitories, together with a new
school house and a cottage for the principal, have been erected or arc
in course of erection. When everything is completed the establishment
will begin to be fitted for an agricultural college and it is hoped by
the Superintendent that at no distant time in the future the Depart
ment will be able to apply to the Federal government for a grant uch as
is allowed to other States and Territories for agricultural colleges. In
another portion of this report there will be found a detailed statement
of this institution got up by the present principal, C. A. MacDonald.
The Superintendent has every hope that Lahainaluna, whose .traditions
in the past are- entwined with the names of some of the most progressive
and advanced thinking Hawaiians, has still a great career before it.
Since 183 1 this institution has been in existence. It was first used for
the teachers and clergymen and the first newspaper ever printed in t'he
Pacific Ocean was published there in 1834. At the present day we look
forward to Lahainaluna as the nucleus from which we can obtain the
highest and best results in agriculture. At the same time it is satisfac
tory to be able to state that two of the pupils at Lahainaluna 'have this
year entered the High School of the Territory and that they promise
to become in tinie able, professional men.
These but suggest the spirit of the report. Everyone interested in
children and youth, or in schools and education, should read this re
port, which together with the reports of the various lines of work of
the department,, which arc published with it, gives a most wholesome
and stimulating view of this most important branch of the public
- t it is now thirty-eight years since
T A Wnnrirrftil S the great philanthropist, George
f i WOnaerTUl y peabody, signed the deed of trust
X PhtlanthrOphy X which created the Peabody Fund
; $ for the encouragement of cduca-
-tt ' ti tion in the South, then just emerg
ing from the prostration of the
Civil War. The deed of trust provided that after thirty years the prin
cipal of the trust might be distributed, two-thirds for educational or
literary purposes in the South, one-third for such purposes wherever
the trustees might deem expedient. On January 24 the trustees voted
II to 2 to make this distribution and to dissolve a trust which has been
of almost incalculable bcncficicncc in its timely assistance to the South.
One million dollars was by last week's vote given to the Peabody Nor
mal College at Nashville. There remains $1,200,000, which the trus
tees propose to distribute at a final meeting in October. From the be
ginning this fund was used for the promotion of free public schools for
both races in the South, giving preference to those schools in which

the largo gift to the Peabody Normal
College ut Nashville Is In accordance
with tlio design of the original trustees
and also recognizes that what was
then the great educational need of the
South, competent teachers, Is so still.
By 18TD the trustees found that the
Southern States, stimulated largely by
the Peabody Fund, were ready to un
dertake the establishment of free pub
lic schools. From that time on they
devoted their income distributed up to
the close of last year amounting to
nearly $2,900,000. The dissolution of
the trust in no way ends the work,
but merely places the administration

Possibly the navy is immoral, but It Is
safe to say that It Is not a bit more so

while the chances are that It Is very
much more moral than any ordinary In
