THEY WILL MAKE OR MAR.
Commissioner!' of Public Instruction arc holding a session that will be
lomentous in its effect upon the youth of this Territory, as well as a dem-
4stration of caliber of the Commissioners.
Staled in terms of aeragc business the rumpus stirred up by Mr. Cope
ind of Wailuku is based primarily on a proposal to overthrow a course of
ludy that is the product of years of experience and the utmost care and at
cnlion from the best educators of Hawaii and ihe mainland. This revolu
:onary step affecting twenty-three thousand pupils and invoking a vast ex
penditure of money in new and additional text books was proposed lo be
ken, before the teachers voting on th.- matter had even read over the "new"
ourie of study. Instead of asking that the "Copeland plan" be discussed
nd the present system revised where the combined judgment of ihe principals
elieved a change would jesult beneficially, the demand was made that ihe
topeland plan be adopted forthwith as a basis and the prevailing system dis
missed from that standpoint.
According to rule of average business and the rule of the most intel
gent and efficient educator, such a proposal is worse than ridiculous.- How
lany men or women of average intelligence would adopt a new system and
fter having taken the step, then proceed to find out what they had done)
yThe proposal is outrageous, because the victims are the future men and
omen of the Territory of Hawaii. They are the ones who must pay the
.fentual penalty, though the parents will come in for some of it in the dollars
''icy have to pay to satisfy the new scheme for text books.
On top of the disastrous ridiculousness of his educational proposal, Cope
. nd has indulged in threats of what the Commissioners of Public Instruc
sn may do to an associate supervising principal if he does not follow his,
JrTwo new destructive elements have been lugged into the educational de
triment by the Copeland scheme mest unbusinesslike methods of adminis
ative procedure and peanut politics.
tlf the Commissioners of Public Instruction support Copeland and con
tue him in the service of the department, there will be no doubt of the in
rythese commissioners have done the public school system in Hawaii; the
ily. uncertain quantity will be the measure of the damage.

CHINESE, BEER AND HONOLULU'S'
Honolulu's failure to establish n
prontnble brewery In Hongkong Is,
according to United Stales Consul
General George K. Anderson, due to
the fact that beer Is not popular
unong the Chinese.
Using the Honolulu venture us n
;ext Consul Anderson writes u very
Interesting Btntement on the salt- of
malt liquors In the Orient. He says
hat our locul capitalists erected a'
ery modern plant, expended capital
o the amount of $500,000 and has now ,
gone Into voluntary liquidation unci Is!
endeavoring to sell the outllt.
The plant established was finely
equipped, mostly with American ma
chinery nnd appliances, Including an;
outfit of glass-lined steel tanks, iind
was modern In every respect In in
stallation and operation; In fact, one
of the reasons for the failure or the
enterprise ns n" business undertaking
is that the capacity or the plant (100,-1
000 barrels or beer annually) Is so
far beyond present possiblo sate that
its economical operation has been dif
ficult if not Impossible.
However, the chief obstacle has been
the lack of success attending the,
ilrm's efforts to attract the. patronage
of the Chinese. In Borne ports of the
new Republic there Is u fair con
sumption of beer among the natives,
but, ns u rule, the Chinese prefer
their own alcoholic beverages, or, at!
most, take to foreign drinks other
For a time there was some reason
:o expect the successful Introduction
of beer among the Chinese of Hong
kong. Sales or the company's output
Increased considerably, nnd growing
popularity gave some practical ground
'or anticipating' u change In Chinese
tastes. The concern also operated
an Ice factory In connection with Its
brewery, and income rrom this source
tent some support to the business. The
fact Anally became plain, however,
that for the time being the Chinese
do not take to beer. '
There Ib considerable consumption
of foreign beers among foreigners In
Hongkong and In the Chinese ports
Jerlvtng their supplies through Hong
kong. The figures of the Import and
export ofllce of the Hongkong Gov
ernment, which are completo In that
they represent taxation on Imports of
such goods, show that at the begin
ning of 1011 there were. In stock 95,535
gallons or ale, beer, nnd stout. Dur
ing the year Importations amounted to
748.900 gallons. Of this total Block
or 844.435 gallons, 322,711 gallons
were exported to vurlous Chinese
ports near at hand, 325,548 gallons
were consumed, and 19G.17C gallon
wero left on hand. During 1910 the
stock on hand (78,894 gallons) and
arrivals (605,212 gallons) totuled 684,
106 gallons, of which 271,142 gallons
wero reexported and 317,429 gallons
were consumed. '
These two ure the only years In
which Hongkong's tax on iftcohollc
products has been npplled and for
which reUnblo figures aro to be had.
They seem to Indicate that, In spite of

tho failure of tho locul brewery to
establish Itself with n high-grade pro
duct brewed to suit tho climate, thcro
Is tin Increase In both reexports und
consumption. This Is probnbly ac
counted for by tho fuct thut the Im
ports of hlghgrudo beers, ales, and
similar drinks In that part of tho
world are largely of special 'Kngllsh,
German,, and Austrian brands for
which foreigners have a special liking,
in which sentiment plnys an iniiort-
nnt part. Many of these drinks urn
used by prescription tn avoid tho de
ifl'csslug effects of a dilllcult climate.
The clieapef-grado goods come largely
from Japan und as a rule dd not at
tempt to reach the better trade.
Several years ugo, particularly soon
ufter the Spanish-American War,
American beer had' n rather strong
hold on the Hongkong .market, and
several of tho larger American brow
ing Interests gave considerable atten
tion lo tlTe trade, especially In tho
ports of the mirth unit through Hong
kong. Cheap Japanese beers have
been cutting Intu theusules of other
countries, howover, and tho trade also
hils been very Irregular averaging
something like $100,000 gold nnnunlly
for all China at tho present time; but
once, (in 190.) running ns high ns
1,200,000 fuels, or more than twice Its
present average voliiino and vulue. All
China in 11)10 bought beers to the
value of (3'J3,TS0, or which about one
half came rrom Japan direct und one
fourth from Germany direct; Ameri
can beers had no part whatever In the
trade. The experience of the Hong
kong brewing enterprise seems lo In
dicate that tho Immedfcito fifture of
tho trade Is uncertain. '
