MARY ATCIIERLEY. Medical Attendant: DR. ATCIIERLEY. M.R.C.S., L.R.C.P. WAR nil A SUMMER SCHOOL Legislature May With hold Money for One. Inspector General Concerned Tal ent Has Been Engaged Molokal School Must Be Made Larger. H. S. Townsend, Inspector-General of public schools, leaves for Kauai to day on official business. The gentle man has just returned from Maui, La- nai and Molokai. Mr. Townsend vis ited all the schools of East and West T;mi nf T.nnfii nnd Molokai. He finds that the demand on the department r i.;i.iin -il tciK-.Viovs k prriwin? rapidly. The establishment of an ex tensive sugar plantation near Kauna- kakai by the Molokai Ranch Company, forces a complete change in school plans for that district. At Kaunaka kai in the past. has been a little one room school house with one teacher. This has been ample for a long time. The plantation will increase the popu- lation of the neighborhood to the ex-j tent that a very large building with quite a corps of teachers will be neces sary. Mr. Townsend remarks that the advent of the cane planter on Molokai seems to have given new life to the whole Island, not excluding the set tlement. Molokai, after slumbering for years will now take proper rank as an industrial center. The Inspector-General is somewhat concerned over the attitude of the ( legislators to the summer school. All who have been interested in education have been of the firm belief that the summer school was worth more than it cost. It was a great advantage to all the teachers and to the educational institutions of the Islands as a whole. The House threatens to cut out or ma terially reduce the appropriation or es timate for the summer school. In that instance it will be imperative to re riur e the scone of the scheme or to dis- i pense entirely with the lectures, stud ies, etc. Mr. Townsend has already arranged -for some of the lecturers, in clvule th. noted Col. Parker, the fam ous exponent of normal systems. It is expected that .Col. PaTker will in a few weeks leave the States for Hono lulu. -Should events so shape them selves that the swmrneT school is aban- IEiClNco llltil. til'- o i. in " doned it will be. greatly to the regret and distinct loss of fhe teachers and the whole school system. Both Min ister Cooper and Inspector Townsend are hopeful that the legislators will be able to see their way to provide for t he summer school. Mr. Townsend says the thing he heard of most outside school matters and' the war was the taro famine. Everywhere the natives are bemoan ing the haidship of life ith short ra- ons on Toi. Everywhere taro is be- ng planted and everywhere it is being used almost regardless oi size or age. The Inspector-General was busy for some time yesterday signing the grade certificates -earned by teachers at the I m-minit i in VipIiI crime weeks aero. exminations held some weeks ago These certificates are now ready for vleliverv. The printing is on a good piece of paper and the engrossing of the names was ' lone by Viggo Jacob- sen A Strong Swimmer. Lieut, Kellogg, U. S. N., who is re ported as having been m ounded in the Manila bay fight, is well known here as any ether officer of the white squad ron. He was attached to both the Philadelphia and Baltimore. Lieut. Kellogg was a favorite in society and besides was the hero in a rather ro mantic incident on the beach about a year ago. On that occasion the lieu tenant rescued from deep water a charming young lady who was" in gr2at danger. 5Ie was the only man in sight at the time and besides saving the fair one calmed her distracted com panions. Four Hundred Years Ao. The Tortuguese colony in Hawaii has taken no notice af a big national celebration that has just ended in their mother country. The observ ances marked the Four Hundredth an niversary of the discovery of India by Spain. There was a special issue of postage stamps and in every city and. hamlet programs were carried out. There was a meeting of the Geographical Society at Lisbon. In Paris a lady of title who has written a history of Portugal is getting up a souvenir book on the anniversary and ha a list of distinguished contribu tors of all nationalities. Portugal still has a considerable possession in India. To New Plantation. J. O. Young, who has been book keeper with J. T. Waterhouse in the Queen street stores for about three years, i? to leave the pioneer business house and the city as well. Mr. Young has been selected from quite a list of available men as accountant for the new plantation of the Molokai Ranch Company at Katinakakai. The present employers of Mr. Young are sorry to see him go and he will be missed by many city friends. SHARP KIDDING. Ucttcr 'Ilian lpct Price for Some Punchbowl Lots. At VI noon ye-ir'rday, Chief Clerk Hassinger of tin? Interior Department appeared in the hallway of the Execu tive building and announced the sale i IT ' AT ft.' ftT tr sir of two Government lots on Thurston Avenue, Punchbowl Hill. There were only two bidders, Mr. F. M. Swanzy, representing Theo. H. Davies and Rep. Achi. The upset price of Lot G20, 17, it40 square feet was $400 and it was sold to Theo. H. Davies for $",20. The upset prcie of Lot 621, 30,192 squarq feet, was $730 and it was sold to Theo. H. Davies for $1,550. The two lots, then, brought $2,270. The bidding was very lively between Mr. Swanzy and Rep. Achi. This was particularly so in the case of Lot 61 when the two bidders increased the sum by $50 at a time. From very good authority it was learned that the upset price was a fair one. This was recognized by Mr. Swanzy but he was bound to have the lots. Card Plavers Fined. After the raid at the Chinese thea tre on Saturday night a number of the same officers who constituted the raid ing party went to Kakaako and there captured twenty natives who were playing friendly games of poker. They were released on tneir own recogni zances and appeared in the Police Court yesterday morning, where they plead guilty and paid $5 and costs each. T!ip ti.tHvp were "edven away" by four women whose husbands were fingering the cards instead of remain ing at home where the wives consider ed thev should be. The raid was made at about midnight. AN KXl'EItrS VIEW. Eullsh "Naval Entrluer Examined Maine Wreck. NEW YORK. May 5. A special to The Herald from Toronto says Almost immediately after the Maine accident Captain Kent, torpedo expert for the British Halifax squadron, was hurriedly sent to Washington City, whence he proceeded to Key West, Fla. His departure caused consider able comment at the time and the Gov ernment was asked a question relative to the trip, but simply answered that it was purely a departmental affair Captain Kent has now returned to Halifax, and from some remarks ne has made it is evident that whatever other business he had in 'hand he was making inquiries about the Maine dis a ster. He expresses the opinion that the vessel was blown up by external means, and that it was probably a mine put in position not long before exnlosion took place. He saw Captain SUsbee and went carefully over all the evidence taken during the inquiry, and this, with his own accurate knowl edse of explosives, their effect when exploded in certain conditions and the certainty that in such a case as that of the Maine disaster all traces of how the mine or torpedo was laid would disappear, made it plain to ihim that external agency had been applied Such a thing, he asserts, could be done -without the knowledge and against the -will of the Spanish officers, so that his opinion means no reflection whatever -upon the Captain General of -Cuba. He has made a most elaborate Teport to the British. Admiralty, and it is said that the document contains important informati'on of the United vStates naval force in Cuba. Some of the Chinese laundrynaen say they will leave the business rather than adorpi a new method of sprink-f "V" ns NEW STORE. Cwong Hing Chong. 315 Nuuanu St. IMPORTED DRY GOODS.
