"Wo would liliu to linn' uny expressions of opinion on Venule liill is," said the tliaiiiiKin. "The committee on education wants to liiul out what you think nhoiit it and will welcome a 1'rec discussion." Hemcnway Indorses. Attorney Charles It. lleinenway was 11)0 liist to declare for the new school fund bill. "Speaking for tlie Chamber of Com merce and the Merchants' Association, which I represent," said liciucnwny, "I wisli to state that those organizations are heartily in favor of this bill. AVe l'eel that the schools have not receiv ed adequate treatment in the past, and we believe that this bill will remedy the shortcomings that have exi.sted and provide a solution for the difficulties of the future. The bill presents a con crete, and dclinlte plan for the im provement of school financing in Ha waii. It has our hearty support, and as far as we can see by the general terms of the measure, it will attain those ends for which it was drafted." For the purpose of showing just what objects the School Fund Com mission had in view in drawing up the plan drafted into the bill, AV. It. Far rintfton, chairman of the School Funfl Commission, road a brief statement, summarizing the nearly two years of labor upon the part of the commis sion, showing the unanimous agree ment among the members at the out set that a direct school tax should be levied and the final necessity of agree ing upon a compromise, owing to the opposition that was encountered on this point. Paxtor For Bill." S. S. Paxton, chairman of the legis lative committee of the Merchants' As sociation and the Cluunher of Com merce, was the next speaker, und he emphasized the sentiments expressed by Mr. Heiucuway, declaring in strong terms for the adoption of the plan of school progress outlined and covered In the bill of the School Fund Com mission. "The legislative committee of the Chamber of Commerce und the Mer chants' Association recognizes the ne cessity of adequate treatment for the public schools," said Mr. Paxton. "Looking at the subject from a strictly commercial point of view, it is evident that the proper curing for the chil dren in the public schools is some thing that will be of direct benefit to the country. -So we are in favor of this bill. . AVe do not want an increase in the rate of taxation, but wo are for the pliicing of the schools, picking fund and interest on bonds us a first charge upon the revenue of the Terri tory." ' J. P. Cooke an Advocate. J. I'. Cooke stated that he could add little to the sentiments already ex pressed by Mr. Hemcnway and Mr. Paxton. "Speaking simply as a member of the community," said Mr. Cooko, "I wish to express uppreciatlon for the work of the School Fund Commission. 'The record of the commission shown in Mr. Farrlngton's summary just read is nothing less than uniazing. The com mission deserves the thanks of the community for the ability displayed in its investigations." ...(. Fairchild's Views Senator Kalrchild then said: "I wish to endorse all that Mr. Cooke has said. I think the School Fund Commission report is the best and most thorough that has ever been pre sented to the Legislature, and we cer tainly are indebted to the Members of the commission." Gilmore Approves. President Gilmore of the College of Hawaii Kpoke in .support of the bill, stating that It was a constructive measure. Ho declared that liberal treatment of tho public schools' was the best guarantee of improved citi zenship. He declared that the College of Hawaii prolited directly by im provement in the common and sec ondary schoois, and that lie believed that the bill under consideration would do all that it was Intended to do. Von Hamm For Plan. C.

I liens interests' endorsement that had already been voiced by Paxton und ilemenway. "AVe are in favor of this bill," said Mr. von Hamm. "We believe in a tax limitation of 1 per cent, as already ex pressed. Liberal treatment for the schools produces direct benefits, I be lieve a million dollars Is little enough for the teachers and think tiiat this bill will produce the result wanted by those who drafted it." In the course of the hearing, Sena tor Fairchild brought the teachers' salary schedule Into discussion, there being evidently some doubt on the his tory and status of the snlary schedule. Fairchild stated his understanding to be that the schedule of salaries had existed in the past on paper but could not be maintained by tho De partment of Public Instruction bo cause of inadequate appropriations by the Legislature. Mr. Farrington asked Mr. Pope If it was not a fact that the reason the sal ary schedules were not maintained was because the rate could not bo lived up to. Popo was doubtful on this point, and further light was; shed on the schedule problem fy Mrs. Mury AVib cox, a commissioner of public Instruc tion. .- . ..'. - "The teachers' salar,' schedule could not be maintained," said Mrs. Wilcox, "because we liad to put on new teach ers und to do this we had to use money that virtually belonged to the touchers already employed. The new schedule provides for the employment of new teachers and maintaining a regular schedule. Under the new schedule the maximum salary will bo received In ten years instead of (ifteen years us formerly." Wadman For Schools. Itev. J. AV. AVadman wus the last speaker, pointing out tho needs of the public schools and tho necessity for improvement. Ho stated that the teachers and grade of instruction were both all that could bo desired, and in declaring his support for tho bill stat ed that he spoke In behalf of many people whom he had met In his travels throughout the Islands. v Those present at tho meeting were Senators rtobinson, Fairchild, Haker, Knlaina, Knudsen and Hewitt; the School Fund Commission, composed of AV.
