A MYSTERY IN M0L0KAI CHANNEL.
Hy the steamer W. G. Hall that
arrived yesterday afternoon an ac
count is received of a remarkable
episode in Molokai channel. On
last Tuesday at 3 i m., the above
named steamer left this port on her
regular route. At dusk that even
ing, when off Molokai lights and
steaming toward Maui, the olllcers
of the steamer sighted a vessel about
one mile ahead. The wind was then
very light, such as would drive a
schooner about three knots an hour,
and notwithstanding the speed of
the W. G. Hall (12 knots per hour),
she was unable to gain, in the least,
upon the vessel ahead. As the
chase contained the stranger occa
sionally showed Hash lights, as is
done by vessels when in danger of
being run down. This vessel was
without doubt a steamer, and a fast
one too. Positively it was not the
Kinau, as that steamer did not leave
here until 1 o'clock that afternoon,
and the action of the mysterious
vessel as herein related will show
that she was a strange craft. In
the first place, were sho any of the
inter-island boats (except tho Ki
nau) she would have been over
taken by the Hall. Then, when
about eight miles from Lahainn,
Maui, two bonfire lights were seen
on the northwest point of Maui.
At about !):!)0 o'clock, when the
steamer Hall branched off for Ma
alaca Bay, the stranger put about,
retraced tier course anil that was
the last seen of her. Tho belief is
that this vessel had opium and the
bonfires were signals of danger.
THE REFORM SCHOOL.
Paper read by UcvC. E.-Qjoscr,
at tho recent mecifng oTTIfo Teach
ers' Convention in this city.
Another plan, less simple ami
inoic expensive, has been spoken of,
which is to divide tho wholo dormi
tory, as It stands, into so many small
cells, locking each boy into his
room, and requiring him to keep it
clean. This plan would ensure the
bafe keeping of the boys, no doubt,
but I fear it would give much
trouble, and not bo very convenient,
besides being close ; although I be
lieve the privacy ensured to each
boy would prove invaluable, for
one of their worst faults is that of
huddling and herding together, and
it is productive of very bad results.
With the division of the dormitory
the play ground should also bo di
vided. The, old rotten,, rambling
building anciently used for a dormi
tory should bo torn down, tho
inggff!IWWffJ-L 1 1'J I U1"J'!1.'' W.HJWffl.
sinull bulliUntfH sllunUd In rowjs uonr
(ho wall, and giving Infinite trouble;
ns hiding places, from whence to
sccuro means of transit over the
wall, and escape, should bo removed
therefrom, and this noble yard
should be divided into two, for
small and large boys. Each would
be, in such case, about 250 feet
square, at least. Mr. Hill ha9
thought that the whole area should
be enclosed in a high wall, and the
divisions for the boys marked only
by n picket fence, so as to bring the
boys under the personal inspection
of the' principal, from his own resi
dence. The cost would be the only
objection to this plan, amounting ho
thinks to 83,000 at least. The ap
pearance would not be improved,
for it is now a very pretty spot, but
that might not be an objection. The
endeavor to make thu school a re
forming institution under thu present
disadvantageous circumstances, has
been a source of great anxiety. The
frequent desertions, the petty thefts,
the continual occurrence of minor
offenses, Jthe indifference to moral
and wholesome pleasures, arc con
tinual sources of disappointment;
the boys seem to be always preparing
for desertion, and ever ready to
break through every restraint.
Tho windows" of the dormitory are
20 feet from the ground. When tho
lower sash was fastened with pad
locks, they pulled the staples. When
they are additionally screwed, they
used bits of sheet iron and broken
knife blades as screw drivers. When
the sash was screwed on tho outside
with three inch screws, they man
age to squirm through the opening
in the upper sash, a space of per
haps ten inches left for vcntilcation.
They escape, and rctui a after some
pcltv thieving, over and over again,
and all the whilo the native warder
is sound asleep near by, or has
slipped out to his family.
With a great deal of trouble, but
not with so very much expense, the
wall surrounding the play ground
could be made insurmountable, hy
a decoration on top, of a line of
glass works. A line of battens well
smeared with cement, and filled
closely with bits of projecting glass,
would make an invisible obstacle to
escape in that direction, while flight
at any time from the front, is almost
certain discovery and capture. The
staff required to conduct the insti
tution upon the principles heretofore
mentioned, should consist of a
Principal who should have the re
sponsibility and oversight of the
whole work. Two capable assist
ants (white men) who should take
acting charge of the teaching and
the field work and one of them at
least serve as warder. A native
warder, and a strong, common
sensed, white woman, as house
keeper. There would be no trouble
in running the institution with such
a staff, and strict regularity and
correct discipline could be guaran
teed. To be sure it would cost
something for the salaries of such a
corps, not less than 83,800 a year.
But it would be the right thing.
With reference to the school work,
being myself in charge of that de
partment, I am readily speak for it.
It is the hardest work of the kind I
ever had to do. Take tho half a
dozen very bad boys, whom every
teacher knows so well, out of other
schools, and placo them together in
one school room, and you have an
idea of my good fortune. They are
not only mischievous but tricky and
quarrelsome. They do not seem to
appreciate learning, but prefer hard
labor m the sun. They only like
school as a variety ; I have about 50
boys in the school, divided into four
grades. Nine learning from primer
charts, 21 in Swinton's 1st Header,
14 in Swinton's 2nd Header, C in
Swinton's 3rd Header. In arith
metic, 2 arc in fractions, 10 in long
division, G in multiplication, 8 in
subtraction, 21 more or less in ad
dition. In teaching reading it is my plan,
to use tho blackboard a great deal,
and to go slow. The 2 1 boys In the
1st Header for instance have only
gone over 35 pages in 9 months, less
than one usual page a week, and
much more than half a page in solid
reading. With reference to arith
metic 1 havo never believed in, nor
made use of books, in giving instruc
tion. Tho examples arc given out,
and commonly combine the rnles
which have been previously passed
through, and the first hand that says
done, goes to the board to place the
work and tho answer, before the
class. The discipline of such boys
is so difficult, tho grades are so
many, and they are so indifferent,
that the results aro slow ; and much
of tho work disappointing. It would
be better if the boys were divided
and alternated, manual and school
work day by day.
As to geography and astronomy,
a very little of them, even, docs not
seem to be effectual. I do not
think It is generally known that
these boyB aro not only rascals, but
that they arc not, taken as it whole,
as bright as tho boys in other
schools. Then there are Interrup
tions, which seem to bo inevitable

tho Hold for i,,l day
progress certainly ennnot be loolcctl
for, under such circumstances as
stated; and probably not much is
expected. On the subject of play,
it would no doubt bo universally
conceded, thot "all work and no
play makes Jack a dull boy." I
cannot but beltove, that the provi
sion of proper amusements would
better the tone of the school, and
play a large part in decimating the
desertions. I lately gave a bat and
ball to the boys, and have experi
enced a change in their conduct in
school. To give them a chance to
play base ball or cricket, foot ball,
kltc-llying, marbles and the like,
and somo bright books with interest
ing pictures, for an hour in the
evening, would go a long way in im
proving their condition. But this
would necessitate a personal interest
in the boys, and considerable atten
tion, which 1 fear only religious
principle could actuate and continue,
under such disappointments I have
said that my teaching is ITucrrupted
by the visits of the bandmaster. I
want to say further,, that I do not
begrudge the time taken away from
me, for the ban.l is an excellent fea
ture, to say nothing of the drill,
which they also get in vocal music,
both in Hawaiian and English. Tho
training of these boys in instruments
of music, is an excellent idea, and a
great benefit to the boys, and wc
might say to the nation. They arc
not taught superficially, but arc
drilled most energetically, in tho
notes themselves, do not play by
car, but read music. As a result
some of these boys tue in the Itoynl
Band, some of them in the bands of
Wailuku and Ivohala. And it is no
slight task, owing to the continual
changes wrought by discharges, and
dcscitions, and rcmandmgs to tho
public jail. Of the boys in tho
present baud not one of them was in
tho band when it was organized four
years ago. Not half a dozen of
them were in the band two years
ago. But in spite of these draw
backs, the boys by persistent effort,
have been brought up to that
standard of excellence at all events,
which makes them in demand, on
occasional mtblic festivities and nri-
vate pleasurings.LiVith this I close,
believing that tho liistory of the in
stitution would not prove interest
ing, and that a description of the
well-appointed buildings, and of the
excellent work done in the field,
would bo better realized by those in
terested in the subject, if a personal
visit were made to both, which aro
always open to inspection.
