VOL. LII, NO. 8850. HONOLULU, HAWAII TERRITORY, MONDAY, DECEMBER 19, 1910. PRICE FIVE CENTS. 1GR1GULTURAL " SCHOOLS IN I Territory Will Get Large Slice of Doiliver-Davis Bill Appropriations. DELEGATE TO WORK FOR IT Civic Federation Discusses the Measure and Votes Its Approval. One of the most important measures appertaining t Hawaii ever presented before either division of the federal tODgress was given local attention for the first time last week when the Civic Federation formally considered it. This is the Dollivor-Davis Bill, -which is now before the senate, being an educational measure of the utmost importance, which has been studied out with re markable care. The sum and substance of its purpose is expressed in the resolution regarding it passed by the federation at the meet ing, -which reads as follows: "Whereas, the welfare of Hawaii is largely dependent on the development of her agricultural resources and the industries related to the mechanic arts, trade and transportation; and whereas, there is a period between the age when eompulsorv attendance at school ceases anil the age when boys and girls become productive workers in the community; "Be it resolved, therefore. That con tinuation schools of the agricultural and industrial type are of paramount im portance to the Territory; and "Be it further resolved. That as the Dolliver-Pavis bill (S. Smm.i), now pend ing in congress, carries means and facilities for The maintenance of such schools, our Delegate to congress be re quested to advocate the immediate pas sage of this act, or the same in what ever amended form may seem best sdated to the needs of "the States at large and Hawaii in particular." Dolliver Memorial. It is probable that the bill will be passed, owing to the death of Senator Dolliver, and will be as a monument to him. It carries large appropriations, and of these Hawaii comes in for an extra large share. The bill, if passed, probably means that almost $75,000 or llrtO.IMiu will be appropriated for the schools of Hawaii in addition to the territorial appropriations. These appro priations will not be by way of assist ance to the schools as alreadv estab lished, but will be to enlarge the scope of their work along agricultural lines. A school shall be established in a given locality when twenty five students are enrolled and the attendance of all toys and girls between the ages of fourteen and twenty-one, both inclu sive, who are not otherwise wisely em ployed shall be compelled to attend. Others niav attend at the discretion of the department of -public instruction. This is -the first time the country las ever had compulsory education over the age of fourteen, the above resolu tion hinting at the great advantages it "lust bring, particularly to this Terri tory where th" class of minors, "not wisely oin pioved. " is very large and sometimes annoying. The Equipment.

THE INSPECTOR MAKES A PROMOTION PROPERTY NEEDED Parks for Women and Children in Congested Districts Are Recommended. The idea of public playgrounds and recreation parks for the crowded ori ental districts was given a new lease of life at a meeting last week of the Civic Federation. Its committee on school.- presented a substantial report on the need of these institutions, rec ommending property and the manner of equipping the playgrounds. While the report was referred baek to the committee for further study and report, the discussion of it was favor able. If the plans of the committee are worked out, the Queen Emma prop- j erty at the corner of Xuuanu and Bere-ta-iia avenues will be one of the lots redeemed for . playground purposes. j At present this property is an eyesore ( where formerlv it used to be one of t he most bea u f it'ui places in the city. Half of the magnificent trees and shrubbery which graced the place when it was the residence of Queen Emma have been cut awav and where the broad lawns. were, are now piles of brick and boards. A Japanese ballasting company has a lease on the place, and so far tl.ey have managed to ruin the house, which is far filthier at present than anv tenement in the city, and the va rds arc piled high wifli unsightly; (Continued on Page .tour.) cbicwus" getting aggressive Will Start Series of Libel Suits Against Leaders Who Seek to Oust Him.

According to passengers from Maui, arriving yesterday, the quarantine on the Valley Isle against the epidemic of diphtheria is becoming daily more stringent. Doctors are now charging a fee ot two dollars and a half for the examination necessary to secure passage on the luter-Islaud steamers under the special order from the board of health. This sum is practically an increase of price on the steamer ticket. It seems to be the general impression that the epidemic is increasing if any thing, and at the best it is just being held down. There have been four cases in Waiiuku, two of which have already been cured, and several from the camps around I'uuuene are reported. The isolation camp at. Faia is now full to overflowing and the authorities are hunting for new quarters to handle the other cases and contacts that are being isolated by the board of health inspectors operating in the afflicted dis tricts. The home for poor people, just com pleted by the Jialdwius at Faia. is the building being used as the center of the isolation camp, being finished just in time to serve in the roi. of an emer gency hospital. Charles Wilcox, the county auditor of Maui, who arrhed yesterday from the quarantined island, states that the pre cautionary measures are being strin gently enforced with the view of pro tecting tiie other inlands, and especiaily I b.iioliib,;. where an epidemic of diph theria would spread rapidly.

GREAT WORK ACCOMPLISHED Hawaiian Day Is Celebrated With Addresses in Central Union Church. The Central Fnion Churcii c d, brat es two days in the year Palm Sunday and Hawaiian Day and yesterday was Ha waiian Day. A special service had been prepared and included in it were ad dresses from four gentlemen who have the spreading of the word tnroughout the Hawaiian Islands at heart. The speakers covered a great leal of ground and one and all seemed to hive peat hope for the future, the one det r 1 nieii I al feature being the old. old cry short age of money. The Hawaiian board came in for much praise at the hands of all. Kev. Orramel II. Gulick expressed a hopeful view as to the future of the Hawaiian churches and people. Al together there are sixty-seven organized churches throughout the Islands and they are doing great work. They are the direct heritage of the missionaries who came to these Island in the early days. As to the efficiency of these churches, he asserted that they had as much right to be called churches as any others on earth. The people who attend them believe what they are taught and also what they could read for them selves. It is the usual custom amongst most of them to have morning prayers, and also to ask God's blessing at each meal. These church members should have the respect of every member of the white and foreign community in the- Islands. Although there are sixty-seven churches they have only thirty-four pastors to do the work in connection with them. This meant that every man had to look after two churches, a main one and a branch. One of the greatest helps the Hawaiian people have is their characteristic trait of lightheadedness. Nothing could ever dismay them for long, and it was this that had helped in a great way to carry them so far along to the goal they are striving for. Under Difficulties. He could not say what they might become under the influence of liquor, they might turn out to be real bad men. Their pastors. however; were good men in every sense of the word. Two, with whom he was personally ac quainted, had large families of eleven and thirteen respectively, yet they did their work and kept up their homes on a salarv of $400 a year. This amount had been guaranteed them by the board. Previous to this the amount had not been so large. Their churcV edifices are not as numerous as they had once been. Some of them, whore the Hawaiian have left the district, have fallen into decay, but aino igst those in tic there is not one which is not in good order. This state of affairs is in a large measure due to the help of the white men. who are onlv too willing and glad to do what thev can. Thev all have cause to be thankful for a Christianity which fills the land and which has sprung in the first instance from the missionaries who came in with the first wave of civilization. Japanese in Hawaii. The subject of an addre-s by the lb v. Frank S. Scudder was the Japa nese in Hawaii. There are nineteen -trategiic points, he told them, which have be m taken up amongst the Japa nese, and thirty tight Japanese men and women are striving their utmost to spread chri-tianity, harmony and Amer ican int.-ret and spirit among the pop ulace. Instabiiitv is the chief cause they have to contend with. In the Last, so great had been this influence, it might be thought by some that the results of the w .r-t had been disappointing.

NINETY LIVES MAY BE LOST Word From Costa Rica Tells of Tragedy of Nature in the Pacific. NEW ORLEANS, December 19. A strange story has been received in this i . city from Port Limon, Costa Rica, ! which rivals in its general features j Jules Verne's story of the "Mysterious x.sKiuu, ueauug, as it does, witii tne disappearance of an island in a most mysterious manner. According to the dispatch, received here a small island on the coast of San I Salvador disappeared last Thursday, swallowed up in the sea and leaving ! only some lloating wreckage to tell of the place where it had raised its head I above the waves. i At the t.me of the disappearance I there were several families of fisher- i men on the island, comprising ninety persons, and so far as known there are no survivors. It is asserted that the island sank under the water following a series of j earthquake shocks. It was undoubted J ly these shocks which have been record ed on seismographs, notably at Port land, Oregon, where it was supposed that the disturbances occurred some where in the Pacific Ocean. This was correct, but in the south instead of 'the western section. DIES SUDDENLY DF HEART FAILURE "WASHINGTON, December 19.
