sen. He added that the services wer
not n memorial but rather were hold t
do honor to him and to realize th
m lemlid example he gave, especially i
the younger generation. He had 1
wonderful vision of mind. To the speal

r. Dillingham in Honolulu, there wer
three tliiug in his life which stood Ou
clearly and distinctly.
Kind, he came from New Englaai'
There was something of that part o
America which put its stamp upon it
m'iin even to the third and fourth gn

of character and an unflinching tenSc

him to hold on in undertakings whei
other would have given up.
Second, there was the element of th

means beneath all these things the gi!
of imagination, that quality which i
imbued with the assurance of faith.
Challenged the Unknown
That was symbolic of the life o
It. F. Dillingham, he sold. He was ao
content with the easy-going life an.

abor and statistics, returned on the
Lurhne from a trip that incfuded Wash
ngton, New York and Porto Rico.
Not that Mr. Mead confirmed the
eport. He didn't confirm anything
otentioually. He was even great Iv
urprised to learn that it was general
known here that he had visited
'orto Bieo. He was informed that The
vdvertiser's Washington correspondent 1
ad tipped off tke secret to the people'
ii xiawan.
But he had nothing to say. "I can't
ay anything about my trip to Porto
tico or why I went," he said when
:e learned that the trip was no secret
lere. He added that the report of bis
rip and what he had ascertained, both
a Porto Hico and on the mainland,
lust be first submitted to the directors
t the Hawaii Sugar Planters' Associa
ion. But Mr. Mead, who left for Porto
tico about the time it was announced
hat the federal government was con
idering those islands as s source of
ibor for the mainland, said labor is
lentiful there. "Porto Rico," he:iid,
'has a population of 1,200,000 and is
o larger and does not produce any
ore than Hawaii " I
Mead said that Porto Bico's draft
uota had been placed at 12,000 men,
ho were now being trained.
To the question of whether there was
ny legal obstacle, draft regulations,
mmigration regulations or opposition
in the part of the Porto Bican govern
lent, Mr. Mead answered that he knew
lone which would prevent Porto Kiciwi
'aborers being brought to these Islands
He would not, however, give any in
'ormation as to how the planters
danned to get ships to bring the labor
ws here, probably the only unsettled
iroblem involved in the prospective in
'anion of Porto Bican laborers, unless
tome unknown objection arises here in
lither the plan tens' association Or in
organisations of the present plantation
'aborers.
Mr. Mead was in Porto Rico for two

"At the Decemoer meeting of the

the met that tb date of the Pair, June

" The exhibits will be chosen along

and pppils.
" hach vocational instructor is, there
I tore, asked t have th schools in his
jnrisilictioii contribute a small exhibit
of furniture or similar products. It will
i not be necessary to have each school
contribute, and, as a matter of fact,
it must constantly be borne in mm. I
that quality is what is wasted and
not .Hiunl'ty. A the entire school ex

ATTENDANCE AM
Ha waif Leads All Mainland
States In This Particular
The table showing ths sverag a
rollment god percentage of attendance
for the term ending December 3, 1917,
is, as usual, extremely interesting in
that it makes it very clear that much
success has attended the effort of th
public schools in the Territory to In
crease their average daily attendance.
As has been th case with former simi
lar reports, it is made very plain that
climate has less to do with the percent
" of attendance than would general
ly be thought. Thus the lead is taken
by the Haualei district of Kauai, which
is exceedingly wet, while some dis
tricts winch hav a very much more
dry cliinnte fall, far below in their at
tendance record. As a matter of fact,
the floures speak for themselves. They
are as follows:

On the whole, however, the Terri
ory may be proud of having still fur
ther raised its already good attendance
rec.iid. (It has for several year post
! been the best in the United States).1
Thus the record for the Territory was,
in December, 1914, 93.1; in Decem

whicn arc particularly interesting ahea
the same are compared with siuti -.r sia-
r i. mi t,,e territory of H.iwaii. In
making these comparisons it should,
however, t remembered that the r
port of Air. Cisxton, wSile it is of com
parative reseat daU, Covers the period
not later than 1W13-14.
I ii statemeut is very generally made
that teachers' salaries in Hawaii are
smaller than those in any other Htite
n the I mon. and it is probubl tb.it
this statement find many believers,
ny the March number ot the Kduc-
lionnl Kevit-w. A a matter of fact,
the statistics compiled by th depart
ment in waHhingtoa show that Hawaii
eomes tblnl in the list showing the
average amount paid to the teuchers.
rhus in 1913, thewverage pav per teach
er In Hawaii was I884.K8. The District.
of Columbia paid the highest salary, the
annual salary there being tI.00A.5tt,
while the State of New York came
second with aa average annual salary
of (940.97. California paid a smaller
average annual salary than did Hawaii,
the annual salary there being $871.02,
tnd all the rest of tb states paid still
imnller salaries.
The average annual salary for the en-
'ire United State during that period
as ifi24.no. Other annual salaries paid
in the five great division. In which
the United Htstes I divided br the
Washington authorities for educational
nnrposes, were a follow:
North Atlaatie Division . . .4fl9rt
North Central Divlana 537.45
South Atlantic Division S-J8.H8
Houth Central Division 3.0
Western Division , t!99.03
Local Salaries WU Uy
It Is fortunate 'that salaries In Ha
waii have advanced so that sow the
veraue annual salary Is 9i5.1(l but,
f roiuse, it would h well If we had '
advanced still further.'
The average number of day during
hich the hools were kept opo
throughout the year 1913-14 Is 108.7
for the entire United State. During
that year the schools of tb Territory
vere open one hundred eighty-live day a.
The only Htate which kept their school
jpea a greater aumber of day more
nan did Hawaii wer the following:
Rhodo Island 193.8
Nw York 189.9
Th schools in California wars open
174.1 day during that year.
During 1913-14, the average expend!'
ture per capita of school population wa ,
121.34 for the entire United Btates. for .
th divisioas Referred to above it wa '
a follow:
North Atlaatie Division 1281'
North Ontral Divisioa , tM :
Booth Atiaati Division 9.21
South Central Divisioa..... 8.95
WesUra Division 18.75 .
California lead th rest of th Htate
in tb eipeaditure of, (49J18 per year
per child, while Mississippi ha a small
expenditara of $4.63. It must be re
membered that 'these figures refer in '
this case to th school population be
tween five nnd eighteen, while ths Ag
ere for Hawaii refer only to th popu
lation actually ' attending school, so
these figures ar not entirely commensu
rate, la Hawaii the average expenses
fo the past school year wa (.32.43 per
ehild.
In attendance, the schools of Hawaii .
have for th -past few years bee a well'
n the lead of those m th mainland.
Thus, the attendance during the year
1913-14 wa 12.1, this figure represent
ng the number attending daily for
each on hundred enrolled. During th
school year 1913 14, the average dailv
ittandane for th entire United Htate
