TEACHERS LISTEN TO LECTURES. Practical Men Tell of Their Experi ence in Educational Matters. A CALIFOIOIA PBOFEOK TALKS. Addreaa hy Lpetor-Cenrl Atkln on nd Dr Lyon-Profeior Brown Explains the Method In Votut In Other Countries-Workln Hectlons. - Yl y h H E Teachers' As- aociation held a monthly meeting last evening at x. M. C. A. HalL The time was devoted almost solely to in- s t ruction lectures, which were listened to with great In terest by the large audience present. The programme wascommenced by a piano solo by Miss Carrie Castle. It was received with applause. A. T. Atkinson, the Inspector-General of Schools, was the first speaker. His address was on educational aims. He said that the greatest aim was to reach the ideal of mental and moral training. He spoke of the necessity of a common base upon which to build, and pointed out that language afforded that base. He said it was impossible to obtain the best results from primi tive languages; the experiment had been tried here In the old Hawaiian schools, but was a failure. The speaker Bald that English must be taught thoroughly, so that the child will not only speak in English, but think in English also. He regretted that the kindergarten schools were being car ried on with racial differences. He pointed out that one of the causes of failure among teachers was the fact that they tried -to do too much with the heads of their pupils. The speaker feaid that mere knowledge is not by any means education. This fact had been learned of late in these Islands. As an instance, the speaker mentioned that a youth had been sent abroad for the purpose of getting the best educa tion obtainable. He returned with a little knowledge, but not enough edu cation to keep him out of difficulties. He spoke of the importance of training the hand, and said that the cultivation of the eye would naturally follow ; this would lead to the greatest aim of the teacher, viz., the cultivation of the power of observation. But these aims, great as they may be, are insignifi cant compared with the great moral aims which should actuate the teacher. After Mr. Atkinson finished his ad dress, Miss Klchards sang "Springs, Awakening" to a piano accompani ment by Professor Richards, her brother. , m Professor Hosmer introduced Profes sor E. E. Brown, of the California University. Mr. Hosmer spoke of the work Mr. Brown bad done in Califor niaa work which was having a splendid effect on the schools of the State. a , Mr. Brown said that during his short stay in Honolulu, he had become profoundly Impressed with the import ance of education. In no country where he had had experience was the immense responsibility of the teacher more apparent than in these islands. He agreed with Mr. Atkinson in his remarks about the importance of lan- fuage training, and when he returned ome he would be able to impress upon the teachers of California that importance from his experience in Ho nolulu. He said that two things were absolutely necessary to success in pedagogy : first, continuity of effort, and second, cooperation in that effort. He regretted that the educational world had engaged heretofore In a game of touch and go. It had tried experiments and had abandoned them without giving them a fair trial. It had seriously laid itself open to the charge of being a world of fads. The speaxer said this should be overcome by continuity of effort. He spoke of the folly and uselessness of occasional teachers meetings for the purpose of listening to speeches, and pointed out that if good Is to accrue from teachers' associations, they must carefully fol low and carry out a continuous line of thought. Secondly, the questions in volved in education were so great that the individual could not deal with them single-handed, and therefore the wise teacher would seek the coopera tion of his fellows in their common aim This plan Is now being practiced, to a large extent, inGermany, where papers on educational topics are published one year before the meetinsr, at which the papers are to be read. This affords the students of pedagogy an oppor tunity of making a thorough study of the subject. This plan is also carried out to a large extent in California, where the State Association issues to each county thesis to be discussed by the teachers. The speaker said the ancient system of formulating a course of study and requiring the teachers to conform to it was giving way to the better meth od of inducing the teachers to formu late their own course of study. The speaker regretted that the United States had not yet been able to annex Hawaii, but expressed the hope that the teachers of Hawaii would annex the sympathy and co operation of their fellows In the States. He prom ised that for himself and the Teachers' Association of California, anything that would tend to benefit of teachers in Hawaii would Jbe gladly under taken. Dr. Lyons addressed the meeting also. He said he was glad that the association had determined upon a plan of work which would agree with the advice given by the previous speakers. He expressed the hope that the "working sections" would be in full worklDg order within a week, A recess was then taken, during which time short meetings of the dif ferent "working sections" were held. Representatives were elected bv the Board of Management, and the follow ing meetings were decided upon: bec tion B: Subject, "Psychology and its Bearings on Education."
