Outing Hays SuggrsteW for .. II School. Tills Place of Arbor Way Scholars Divide for Stmly of Natural It ranches in the Fields ami Mountain. Etc. Mb. Editor: Now and again we hear school boys and girls of fifteen, twenty or thirty years ago speak of "the picnics we used to have." Their eyes shine as they recall days of rambling spent in our rich, verdant valleys with this or that company of school fellows, and one or another well-beloved teacher, as guide or associate. On anniversary days we listen as in a dream to accounts of Punahou good times long ago. Sometimes we sigh as we think that there is a lack of enthusiasm for the woods and hills among our children, and we try to content ourselves with a popular idea that these are more scholarly times that modern re quirements are much greater and that schoolroom work is of a highly evolved sort. No doubt, indeed, with the years we have grown more studious in trying to read our way out of the huge wall of books ever being built up around us by the in creasing number of thinkers and writers in the world. But action and reaction are equal. The world is growing young again. A clarion note has sounded through the schools and colleges of America : "Books! 'tis a dull and endless strife; Come, hear the woodland linnet, How sweet his music! on my life, There's more of wisdom in it. And hark! how blithe the throstle sings! He, too, is no mean preacher. Come forth into the light of things, Let Nature be your teacher." A ready response to the call has come. Nature, like the Bible, too often a sealed book to the masses, is now open. Laboratory work largely takes the place of text books in science ; individual exper iments by the students largely re place the experiments performed by the instructor alone. Further still, schoolroom doors swing to be hind classes who go out into Na ture's own pasture, lambs for their intellectual browsing. Punahou of today offers some thing better than the old-time pic nics in the newly established out ing days. How often these will comer we do not know, but there might be at least one in every term. Surely botany without flow ers and zoology without birds, bees and butterflies, would be dead languages not living voices. The first of these outing days at Punahou was last Friday. The students were divided according to the purpose of study and taken by the different instructors of the school to localities favorable to the subject and mood of the class. President Hosmer led a company up Manoa valley for illustrations of physical geography lessons. Dr. Lyons challenged a group of mountaineers for a scramble to the summit of Konahuanui in search of rare ferns and geological speci mens. On the summit of Tan talus, in the crater, is a rare nook for ferns, and there Mr. Crockett took a party of collectors for the spring herbarium. Perhaps the merryist excursionist followed Mr. Dodge up Punchbowl, sketch books in hand, to bring home ambitious representations of Lunalilo Home. We have not heard of any native poems resulting from an expedition of a literature class, but rare op portunities were afforded for odes to Spring, May Day songs, " Sum mer is coming,'' and the like. This fashion of Outing Days pre vails in the Eastern schools and colleges. "Arbor Day,'' '"Field Day'' and "Shore Day" are full of delightful suggestions to one who has roamed through New England fields, spotting at every turn some new treasure for herbarium, or OUTING MY UHAHOO clambered and slid over salt-strewn and wet rocks for dear little crabs and charming barnacles. Why not have outiug day in all our schools for the sake of teach- i ers as well as scholars ? Shame on many of us men and women who hear naught but the clatter of tongues at afternoon teas, the rattle of sewing machines, the din of news boys, street cars and counting rooms, whose eyes are open only to laces, to silver or to dust. "The world is too much with us, Getting ami spending we lay waste our powers ; Little we see iu Nature that is ours ; We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon ! " True, most true, great high priest of rsature, " The world ib too much with us." Help us to learn with the children that if we but come to Nature with open eyes, ears and hearts we mav learn wondrous lessons, for "One impulse from a moral wood May teach you more of man, Of moral evil and of good Tli an all the sages can." Coi RESPONDENT. NATIONAL BAND. Harry Gillig Wants the Quintette Club On His Yacht. The National band will have the financial aid of John D. Spreckels in their concert enterprise on the Coast. A series of entertainments, lasting a week or ten days, will be given at the Metropolitan Temple, San Francisco. Spreckels will be reimbursed out of the proceede, the remainder, if any, going to the band. The trip will be made simply as an experiment. Should the San Francisco concerts prove a success, the band will very likely make other engagements. In this connection it is learned the Quintette Club, the members of which belong to the National band, will go on to New York in case the band should return to Ho nolulu after concluding their en gagement at San Francisco. Harry Gillig was favorably im pressed with the playing and sing ing of the boys while here and de sires to have them on his yacht for a month or two this summer. For this purpose he left expense money with his agents in San Francisco, should the members favorably con sider the project. It is understood Mr. Gillig offered very favorable terms. KNIGHTS TEMPLAR COMING. Excursion of One Hundred From Los Angeles Teachers' Vacation. There will arrive by the Australia on June 21st a delegation of Knights Templar, numbering be tween 75 and 100, from Los An geles, Cal. Several of the party will remain in the islands for some months,makingexcursions in every direction and viewing everything of interest. Others will make a stay of several weeks. During their visit local masons will enter tain the visitors by giving a ban quet, etc. The same steamer will bring a large teachers' excursion from San Francisco. Several noted educa tors will be among the number. Their vacation tour will embrace a trip to the volcano and other points worth seeing. Indications point to an increased tourist travel during the summer months. ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION. Election of Officers Postponed Road Race Friday Night Entries. At the meeting of the H. A. A. C, held in Y. M. C. A. hall last night, election of officers was post poned until a later date owing to the small attendance of members. It was decided to exempt from dues those members absent from the city. There will be a road race Friday night under the auspices of the club. An elegant prize will be awarded the winner. It is expected men from the Philadelphia will join in the event. Entries will open at Thrum's bookstore this morning and close at 1 p. m. Fri day. Twenty-five cents admission will be charged. Following is the course : Start at Waikiki bridge : along Waikiki road to King; down King to finish at old opera house. ON BRITISH CITIZENSHIP, Lord Kimberley Gives Decision Favoring Walker and Riokarcl soi i ii i Il.tfIC Hl'I.IT I . Hewett Cannot Seek ItrltUk Protrctiou. Oath of Allegiance Made No Differ euee With the Others-Thought They Were lnlnK Nothing Wrong Though England is generally reported as keeping particularly quiet on the question of citizenship growing out of the recent unpleas antness, Commissioner Hawes has recently received communications from Lord Kimberley giving a deci sion upon the cases of A. M. Hewett, T. B. Walker and W. H. Itickard. According to this deefsion Walker and Rickard are looked upon as citizens of Great Britain and sub ject to protection from that coun try. This decision is particularly in teresting on account of the letter recently received from Secretary Gresham of the United States, which indicates a policy directly opposed to that of Great Britain. It appears that Walker, Rickard and Hewett are all naturalized cit izens of Hawaii ; took the oath of allegiance to support the constitu tion and by-laws, and swore allegi ance to the king. Hewett, accord ing to the decision of Lord Kim berley, is not amenable to British protection since he holds a certif icate of naturalisation. Walker and Rickard, however, do not hold this certificate and have also made affidavits to the effect that when they took the oath they were in formed by the King, the Minister of Interior and Commissioner Wod - house that the taking of the oath would not effect their citizenship as a subject of Great Britain. It wk. be noted that the laws of Hawaii, which hold that a person becoming naturalized and after ward appealing to his former na tion for protection, shall bo guilty of treason, are set at naught bv Great Britain. Although the decision as to the citizenship of these men has been rendered no demand has been made by Great Britain for their release or for a mitigation of sentence. The correspondence with the British government Las not closed, how ever, ihe statements ot Lord Kimberley will probably be place! before the Advisory Councils today. e CIRCUIT COURT OPENS Bush and Nawahi on Trial for Con spiracy This Morning.
