Meeting With A. T. At
kinson of Board
Legislators Want to Know About
Normal and Reform Schools
Pleased With Treatment
According to previous arrangements
with Superintendent of Public Instruc
tion A. T. Atkinson, the successful
candidates of tho Independent party,
headed by Senators Kalauoknlant and
Knmih.i and numbering about fifteen
In nil, met at the Hoard of Education
office jesterday afternoon for the pur
pose of nsklng questions bearing on tho
work of the department, llcsldcs Mr.
Atkinson, thero were present for tho
Hoard, tho following: Dr. C. T. Hod
gers, secretary; Miss Rose D.nlson, as
sistant secretary, nnd Mr. Gibson,
Senator Knlauoknlanl began the
questioning nnd then the others Joined
In. The personnel of the Hoird of Edu
cation nnd the officers of tho depart
ment were first learned nnd then tho
following questions were asked.
"How many teachers are being pild
by the Hoard of Education ?" "There
arc 332 and theso are of secrnl differ
"What are your expenses per
month?" Mr. Atkinson stated hero that
nil facts of that nnturo wcro contained
In the la3t report of the department,
now in the hands of the printer. As
soon as the tlovcrnor had seen this, ho
would be glad to let them hnvo It.
Mr. Atkinson explaining that the
sum mentioned included tho salaries of
two normal instructors one of whom
was Sam Kelllnoc. an Hawaiian, tho
question was nsked: "Will the average
of ycu'ng Hawaiian going out to teach
lie greater as tho normal school In
creases in size?" This wns answered In
tho affirmative. Mr. Atkinson cxpliln
Ing that, of course, this would depend
on the Hawaiian taking advantage of
the opportunities offered. Just hero ho
paid n high tribute to Mr. Kelllnoc.
"Tho object of tho normnl school,"
said Mr. Atkinson, "Is to educate our
own people hero Instead of getting
teachers from the Mainland as wo Itavo
been forced to do. I reganl the nor
mal school as n nursery for futuro
teachers of tho Islands nnd It Is my
opinion that these teachers will bo
"Do you need any money for tho
normal school?" "Yes."
'Why has not the Itoyal school been
rebuilt?" "Hecau8o wo hnn had no
money. In my report now In the hands
of tho printer. Is a list of the school
hoiibcs needed throughout the district."
"How much will you need for now
buildings?" "I hnvo placed the estl
mntci nt $183,000."
"How about Lahntnaluna school?
Would It pay to repair tho buildings?'"
"It Is my opinion that It would not.
If It Is sought to keep up the Institu
tion, I would recommend an entirely
new set of buildings. As It Is now.
there Is patching going on nil the time
and a great deal of the time of the boys
is taken up with this work."
"How much would a set of new
buildings cost?" "That Is very hard
to tell but I do not think that theso
would cost more than $20,000. Neither
tho I.alialnaluna school nor Hilo
Hoarding school are under tho Hoard of
Education. Tho I.alialnaluna land
wns supposed to belong to tho gov
ernment but I now find that, as soon ns
It Is abandoned as a school site, It will
go back to tho HIshop Estate."
"How many llfo certificates nro now
held by teachers under tho Hoard?"
"1 believe there aro twenty-ono."
"Ho you think It would bo wise to
teach tho Hawalan languago In tho
schools of tho Territory?" "No. My
reason Is based on experience. If Ha
waiian and English aro taught natives
In tho schools, they will think In the
former language to tho detriment of
their speech In English. If they nro
taught only English they will think
and speak In that languncc. ,
"Much more success along this lino
Is being met with now. Ilnwallans In
tho schools speak much better English.
If It Is wished to hao Hawaiian taught,
I would recommend a separnto school
In each district but I would not allow
children to attend It until they had
been brought up and had grown older.
I should say fifteen would bo tho prop
er age. Tho success of nn Hawaiian
undoubtedly depends on his knowledge
of English. I have uo objection to
tho Hawaiian language. My only de
slro Is to help tho Hawnllan along."
"Would It not bo a good plan to
havo tho limit of tho school ago placed
at 21 Instead or IB?" "No. I think tho
ago should bo left as It Is. If nnyono
wishes to go to school after ho or shu
Is fifteen, It can bo done easily."
"How nro tho teachers being paid?"
"Their pay depends entirely on their
nblllty and their succetsful teaching.
The former can bo Judged by tho
examinations they pass; the latter by
observation. We have a regular sche
dule whereby a teacher showing ability
nnd success In teaching, gets n ralso
from tlmo to time."
"What nbout tho reform school?" "I
was Just waiting for you to ask about
that. We havo found a splendid place
for tho location of such a place at the
north end of the Island, near Kahukti.
It Is 771 acres In nrca nnd belongs to
tho gocrnmcnt. A better place for
boys could not be found. There la
plenty of wnter nnd there Is land for
tho planting of taro, the establishment
of n dairy and the raising of all kinds
of vegetables. There Is also nmple
good lnnd for the houses nnd work'
shops of the school.
"I do not like the name of 'Reform
School.' I should like this changed to
'Industrial School.' If n boy comes from
the "Reform School' he Is Immediately
branded ns ono who has done some
thing very wrong. As a matter of fact,
In many cases, the boys of the school
have done ery lltllo wrong. The
snmo thing could be said in the case
of n girls' school should It be decided
to establish ono.
I believe that, should an Industrial
siliool be established nt such n place
as the one I have mentioned, parents
unable to manage their 005 s would
send them there. Others such as chil
dren with no parents to look nfter
them could also be sent to the school."
When ns'ted Is thrn wns nny site In
Honolulu that -mid bo used for the
building of a new school, Mr. Atkinson
replied that he had been unable to find
ono so far. He then suggested that the
lnnd upon which the Royal school re
cently sirod be exchanged for some
property a little further away from the
city nnd not so .Unable. The land on
Emma street was altogether too small
for the sire of the building It was pro
posed to placo there.
Mr. Atkinson went on to say that.
In the sale of public lands, to reserva
tion had been made for schools. Sena
tor Kr.nulia asked him whose fault
this was and he replied that he did not
know. Stntlng that there was no law
'compelling reservations for uchools, he
handed Senator Kanuha the following,
which he nslied be made law nt tho on
coming srs3lcn of tho Legislature-
"Hereafter, when portions of tho
public lands are survojed nnd set apart
for homcstend3. n lot of not Jess than
flvo ncres. centrnlly or conveniently
located In such tract shall bo set apart
for school purposes, provided no school

miles of the center of such portion of
Other questions of minor Interest
rurh ns the raising of tho standard of
rducntlon nt Lnlinlnalnnn, the number
of school agents nnd tho violation of
certain school laws were nsked nnd
then the meeting adjourned. Senator
Knlnuokilanl fhanked Mr. Atkinson
for the extreme courtesy he had shown

tcrests of tho depnrtmint. Miss Davi
