AN INDUSTRY.
THE WISH ADMINISTRATION OF
CHAK1TAIJLK FUNDS.
In civilized States there has been
much complaint that so many magni
ficent charitable gifts fail to accom
plish large results. Theue failures
have created prejudices against chari
table bequests. Many rich, and profes
sedly pious men with worldly wisdom
decline aiding or increasing these gifts,
-because- they have no confidence in
their proper and best use. Those who
have been engaged for years in solicit
ing such gifts, know of this reluctance
only too well.
Therefore when a magnificent chari
table use is created, like that for the
benefit of the Kamehameha Schools,
the public is under the strongest moral
obligations to use its influence in favor
of the best use of the gift. To neglect
the matter, to refuse to interfere, is a
crime of moral negligence, because if
the charity is not well administered, it
discourages the making of similar
gifts, and breeds skepticism in the
minds of men who have the means of
doing great good.
In suggesting that the Kamehameha
Schools, as well as other similar
schools, are not conducted according
to the wisdom of the hour, it is done
with the consciousness that problems
of education are not easy of solution.
Any criticism moreover on present me
thods, must suggest better methods, or
it is worthless criticism.
The younger natives are in a critical
condition. They face at least four
stronger races, that are increasing
rapidly. Friction between them in
creases. It is not the struggle of an
eaual race, but a weaker race, at very
close quarters. We are not discussing
the belief that the race will soon die
out. We assume, that it may continue
and. under the most favorable condi
tions, hold its own, however improb
able it may be.
Any error in the training of the
younger people of this race, involves
Prions results. The old missionaries
did not have before them the prob
lem of today, the industrial and man
ual education of a soft race, confronted
with at least four hardier races. The
difficult problem Is one of today, and is
before the present and coming mission
ary. When we see that the average na
tive has less of the faculty of organi
zation, than the average man of other
nationalities, we fear that he must go
to the wall in the competition. When
it is said that the average native wo
man does less sewing per day than the
average Portuguese woman, it means
another going to the wall on these
lines of labor.
Under these conditions, we believe
that it is a correct proposition to state
that the manual and industrial educa
tion cf native youth, must bo generally
in industries which furnish products
Tor the world's markets, and not for
the home markets, in which they will
undoubtedly lose by close competition.
It is their only hope. Any depression in
the sugar business here, means general
loss of work by mechanics and seam
stresses, in the home market. The na
tive goes to the wall first. If the native
goes to the wall, what are the benefits
of the great charitable gifts for their
special use?
If this proposition is true, the ques
tion arises, are there small industries
which come within the means of the
native youths of both sexes, that will
place them beyond this severe and
grinding and increasing home compe
tition? That such industries may be
created goes without saying. But it is
true, and it is a discouraging truth,
that it requires rare ability and organ
izing power to make even a small in
dustry successful. The man who can
make a success of an industry, gener
nii,r tni'Dc Mm rf himself first. And

if he is a true and rare Apostle of In
dustry, a missionary to the heathen

the rub. A genuine Apostle of Indus
try is usually a crank. He undertakes
new projects. Conservative men are
naturally not fond of new projects. It
means pioneering, and that is hard
work. One may preach a hundred ser
mons easier than he can successfully
cultivate scientifically an acre of beans.
We can merely hint at the points
involved in securing the best use of
these great charitable gifts to the na
tives. It is unfortunate that all dis
cussions of this kind, which are gen
erally welcome in business affairs, are
quickly resented by those who admin
ister mixed secular and religious af
fairs. It is the history of charitable
uses. A belief in Revelation, it is said.
saxes the soul. But the body which is
the temple of the soul, cannot be saved
by beliefs, but by hard and intelligent
work. It is only of late, that those who
administer charitable uses, see the su
preme value of providing for the body.
Referring to what we have &aid
above, concerning industries, we pre
sent the matter of the vanilla bean cul
tivation on these Islands, because it
was suggested by Mr. Young, the "King
of Tahiti," who has made a fortune
out of it, as well as out' of the pearl
fisheries. He visited these Islands about
a year ago, and is known to be the pos
sessor of one of the most valuable col
lections of Polynesian curiosities. He
informed us that many of the natives
of Tahiti made comfortable livings out
of the cultivation and preparation of
this bean. Its market is in the great
Hrl He believed that it

migh be made a valuable industry here,
if the people were properly trained in
its cultivation. The value of the beans
raised in Tahiti in the year 1890, was
$200,000
If $200,000 were divided among the
heads of families in these Islands, so
that each received $20 per month from
it, about 830 families would receive
support from it, or in all, about 4,000
neonle. The men, the heads or wmni,
could engage in other work, if neces-
arv while the women and children
would easily do the light cultivation
and preparation of the article. If the
native girls were carefully trained for
this industry, they

Now Enjoying the Best of Health, !
With Digestion Perfect. j
' My mother was subject to sick head
aches and indigestion for over a year
She was unable to stand for any length
of time, and was obliged to stay in a dark
room as she could not bear the light. She
had no appetite whatever and herstomach
was so weak she could not retain what
food she did eat. She also had severe
pains in her head. She suffered so much
that she became but the shadow of her
self. One day I happened to read a tes
timonial about Hood's Sareaparilla. It
Sounded So Truthful
I persuaded her to try this medicine.
Before finishing the first bottle there was
an improvement in her condition. She no
longer threw up her food and her head
ache was not as severe. She took in all
four bottles of Hood's Sarsaparilla and
several boxes of Hood's Pills and regained
her weight. She is now enjoying the best
of health. Her digestion is good and she
can eat almost anything she wishes. She
is 42 years old and says she feels as well
as when she was 16. Hood's Sarsaparilla
made a complete cure in her case."

Maxwell as a trained expert,
Whether or not the natives will re
spond to such methods of training is
another question. The question now is
what is the best administration of a
snlendid charitable gift? What is the
best administration of other generous
charitable gifts? If the natives will
take no advantage of industrial train
ing there are many growing children
of other races who will.
