and gripping addresaet ever made be

Attorney Andrews delivered at the close
of the ease; lie talked less than an i

In the opening address to the jurors
City Attorney. Brown made a strong
plea, telling the twelve that they were
twom to support -the law: "nd asking
them not to be swayed by sentiment or
by the. eloqnenne -ot the attorney for
the' xlefense,' He reviewed ' the facts
admitted by Captain Allen, holding that
clear proof had been given that a erime '
bad, be,en committed and asking that
the law be upheld.
Attorney' Andrews, replying, elso ,
reminded the jurors of their respodni- ;
bllity and be told them that not oaly

" The element of self defense that had
been so adroitly woven into the testi
mony of "witoeaees was a point upon
which the attorney placed, particular
stress, t 'line the jurors there was a
higher and greater law that they must
loftkv to-i-that 1 Qt self defense. Man

Captain Allen when he ahot Walker

With moving eloquence he told the

Since then hearings have been held '

The history of the present case ns
back to 1875 when a number of mem
bers of the Church of Jeans Chrint of

.Miss Dorothy Htendel, a member eF,, A. very intcreeting, pic.foreaqee, and
the faculty of the Kauai High School
at I-ihtie, trikes''a report on "Outide
in Second Tear Enalrsh.
j v ni.
nf !t.r..t thi
of interest to the thou,
teachera in the irovern-,
which will be
' . -
sand or more
, i
meat schools throughout Hawaii. The
report is aa follows:
"During the yoar 1910 1917 I taught
a ensa in first vchr Knglish. Thor
Were eighteen in. the clans nml att bfit
three had ilifliculty in undc ratandihg
the diction and finer points in the
stories studied in class. Often there
acre references to characters or books
known to all Grammar School pupils
on the mainland but practically un
known to these pupils. It was difficult
to name a book that all had read or
even heard of.
"This year I have a first year Eng
'ieh eluss and also a second year Eng
lish class. The latter is mnde up of
eleven of the pupils I taught Inst year.
Hix are Japanese, two are Chinese,
two part Hawaiian, and one is Ger
man, Of course, only one speaks Eng
lish exclusively. During the fall term
there were the same difficulties as last
jrvnr. r lining , i reniiiveii iu iry an ex
. . . I
"At the beginning nf the term 1 aa
Hgried one of Lamb's Tales of Hhukee
iero to each ineinbor of the claas.
li'nrh looVed up the life of Charles
Lamb, told his tory to the class and
wrote a short synopsis. This gave
irnrtise in oral Knglish nnd written
composition. At the end of two weeka
" v each pupil a longer story, anch
is: The 'hillren's Dickena. Treasure
rslanil", Kingaley'a stories, The Vicar
f Wakefield, and other books recom
mended by the college board. This
work wna extra and the regular work
was not Interfered with, Two weeksJ
were allowed for reading the book,
writing a short synopsis, looking up
fhe author's life and, finally, giving
short report in class. In most cases
the1 work was done in. less than two
weeka and the pupils were asking for
more bonks.
' "I had planned that each pupil
should read five books during the term.
The number read, however, varied from
tlx to fifteen. In our regular work
fe made a careful -study of George
plot's Silna Marner, and reviewed Hag-
f and RoRelle's Applied Business Cor--espnndeneo.
The class average in the
March examination waa eighty-six per
fent, while that of December, with no
tside work, was eighty-nine percent,
f believe the decrease in average wna
lue to the difficulty of the examination
-ather than to outside work, aa I have
'he same pupils in' bistpry, and that
"iverfcge'1 Inttreare'il three percent. At
he end of the term I asked whether
ir not we should continue outside read
ng next term. All eogerly responded
'Yea.' I then asked for written an
iwers to the following questions:
How She Went About It
., "First: ' Before coming to Kauni
!Iigh Hchool did you rend any books
icsidea those studied in literature
Inaaf- If few or. none, state reason.
1 fniind thnt the three whe had under
dood the beat had read a very large,
number of books. Four bad read an
iveragp number, three a very few, and
ine, none. Some of the reasons were:
Tho pupil did'not care for books; there
ere no books in the library; no one had
ver suggested reading. " These reason
prove- that there la great opportunity
for the grammar school teacher to en
'ountge reading, to see that there are
looks available and to take a personal
ntenst in the child's selection of
'looks. .
"Second: Did you do any reading
lining the Freshman yeart If a lit
le or none, state reason. One hud
read ninny books, one a few. eight
icarcelv any, and two, none. The rea
ions given were: All time was spent
n studies: pupils worked after school
inurs; pupils never thought of reading;
iiupils wasted spare time. This de
rcase showed that I had neglected op
'iiirtiiiiitios and made me resolve t
.tart the present year class on the road
'ii rending.
"Third: Did you do anv reniline
luriin? the fall term of If 17 19IHt If
i little or none, state reason. The on
twirs showed further decreases.' The
a in given for not reading were
he -amp "a those given in the above
and in addition, some pupils aaid they
liil not know how to select books.
Mni'orv of Fnnjls.
"T found that those who have read
e inst have the least difficulty with
he Knglish literature. They have a
"-e mature understanding than the
ithers. Thoae who have rend the most
iiice .T,,nunry are pnnila who have the
'eat time, to snnre. Thev do good dailv
Mirk, work after achool hours, are in
'crested In school afTelrs end do a
rent denl of Red Cross work. Those
vim hnve done the 'least are those who
'uive time to snaro.
"I have often mentioned cefrtain
books and suggested that- pupils reai'
hem. but in some cases, the only aug
estinn that vnrka Is that of putting
he books into the pupils' hands. He
'" to be taught how to select books
His way is to look at a book, to see
whether it ia long or sho't, whether
'he print Is lnrpe or small, whether
here are any pictures and "hether
there is any conversation., He does
it notice the author or even the title
The tenchei rnuat tell htm 'who the good
uit'"..s are. An outline' Of the best
Kiiglinh and American authors and
hpi works ia vorv helpful. The
teacher mnat guide the pupil sn that
he will not read one kind of books ex
clusively. She mnat show the value of

"I can see where the department is
going to suffer considerably' through
the draft in Its teaching foree." eaid
Mr. Kinney yesterday. diarnsMns? the
aubjeut, which ia now one of paramount
;Th ilepsrtment is .asking laf
exemption In the case of only three; of
lJ" v,rl hun.lred men employed on
whing 'aff of the schools. One
of three ia a supervising principal and
two are school principals. We ask for
exemptions in these particular cases
solely, on the ground that It will be.
very difficult at the present time to re
place these men by others of equal,
ability aad general, knowledge of tbe
-"rK required of them.
Hoys ror Early Call of Draft
"Inasmuch as I am already busily

i be carted it will: be-, done SO shortly.
so that we will be able to know where
.re are at.
' ould lie manifeatedly unfair at
this time to drop such teachera ae arc
aub'"t to draft nnd, again.- we must
beg'n to make provision for tha future
for it is no easy matter to fill vacaa
clea at. a moment 'a notice.
"We will not be able to make pro
