This is one of the first n-1 measures and gives a fair expression of the manner in which the members of the Republican House align their ac tions with their platform and campaign promises.

Hawaii. PUBLIC SCHOOL ENEMIES. Let lis have no more "Children First" as a regular diet, Advertiser. . ' . 's- ., This is not unexpected either as to the request or its source. Session after session has witnessed the same old story in connection with the public schools of this Territory. 1 Pressing needs of the schools, apparent in a hundred dif ferent ways, are brought home during the school year. The people then demand more money for the schools and the school children; the political parties and the candidates make their promises accordingly. - . ,; In clue time the Legislature meets arid' measures are in- tjodiiced. that satisfy the political promises and on the face 0 it put the schools where they should be. "Everyone ' seems favorable" and the friends of the schools are lulled into a peaceful slumber only to discover, when the session is 1 ti ir 11 . cnciea jnai ine scnoois nave net neen carea ior, ine promises have not been kept, and the schools as well as the school children are just about where they were after the previous session lost in the shuffle with other departments. This year it will be different. The same forces that have quietly juggled with the school appropriations and school bills in years gone by are now at work. Their time has come. "Everybody is favorable" and enemies of the schools perhaps feel that those interested in the school children will thus be placed off guard. Experi ence has taught the people however that there is one cer tain method of proving friendship for the children and guar anteeing sufficient funds for the public schools, and that is, passing the measure that provides ample funds, carrying it through to the Governor for his signature or veto, or in other words, promptly living up to the promise of each indi vidual Republican member of the Legislature that "Education of ttye youth of Hawaii shoulclhave first claim upon the rev enues of the Territory.",- -.- .. 4.- .... The situation will be judj- d according to the legislator's fulfillment of his party promise or his acceptance of the doctrine "give us a rest on Children first.'
