- Yl y h H E Teachers' As-
aociation held a
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
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 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

Bearings on Education." Representa

Ilealani Boat Club Meeting,
There was a full attendance at
the regular monthly meeting of the
Healani Boat and Yachting Club,
held last night in the rooms of the
Chamber of Commerce. Several
applications for membership were
received, and three new members
elected. Plans and specifications
for the new boat house were accept
ed, and bids for constructing the
same referred to a committee com
posed of President Lansing, Sec
retary Gear and Tieasurer F. W.
McChesney. The contract will be

ments can be perfected. It is ex
pected that work will be commen
ced on the new boat house some
