RESOLUTION INTRODUCED BY VON HOLT DIRECTED TO BOARD OP ESALTH. Minor Matters of Importance to the Discussed and 2iBch Business Transacted. f Tl Arst meeting of tho Board of IfrtotttHHt under th Territorial wm held ytterday afternoon at :. o'clock. There were present of Public Instruction A. T. Atkinson and Commissioners of Education Mrs. W. W Hall, Mrs. E. W. Jordan. Professor Alexander. H. M. Von Holt and Charles Hopkins. In opening the meeting Mr. Atkinson said that it was necessary to hare rules of order drawn up and that, if such woro not already in existence, before the elOKO of the meeting he should ask the appointment of a committee to take the matter in hand and report. The minutes of the previous meeting wore read by Secretary Rodgcrs and approved. Superintendent Atkinson suggested that horeaftor the Committee on Teachers should moot the day before the regular mooting, so as to be able to report promptly. Profossor Alexander said the Committee on Teachers had already made a preliminary report on salaries and were now engaged in pre paring a schedule of salaries, which would bo contained in a further report. Superintendent Atkinson stated that as soon as possible he wished to g"t things so arranged in the department that the constant applications for increases in salaries would be stopped. Ho uudorstood this was the desire of tho govornmont under the new order of things, and he wished to accomplish it with the aid of the rest of the commissioners. In order to aid dispatch he would hereafter be present at committee meetings, as an member, and wished to be notified .of all such m eatings. a request from Mrs. Walker, a teacher, rotating to her position, was to the committee. Tho question Of tho lease of certain land at Kauluwola was brought up, where the tenant had refused, and still refusod, to pay the rent due tho Board of Education. Aftor discussion, the secretary was ordorod to make a demand in writing for the back rent, the land now being in the possession of Mr. Holt In connection with the matter, Superintendent Atkinson said that Mr. Wells, the teacher at Kauluwela school, was desirous of having an extra room added. In fHct this need had brought out the coudition of the leased piece of land in question. It was decided that, as thoro was only about $23,000 left for repairs, which would not allow of the withdrawing of a sufficient amount to put up the kind of a structure desired, uio matter of an addition at Kauluwela had bettor be deferred and, on motion, it was so ordorod. Superintendent Atkinson stated that tho old Royal school had recently been examined by experts, who had decided that the structure was unsafe. Under the circumstances, he did not think tho Board of Education should allow tho usual closing exercises to be held this year, which would bring an unusual crowd Into the building. On motion, itrwns, therefore, ordered that the secretary notify Rev. Alex. Mackintosh, Uie principal, uiat the closing qverclses could not be held in the school house this year, but he must secure some other place. Superintendent Atkinson, at this point, brought up the condition of the Forst-street School building and pointed out that, as a matter of precaution, the building should be examined by experts at once. After a short discussion. It was ordered that the Superintendent of Public Works be sent up to examine the building and report Superintendent Atkinson read the following self-explanatory letter from Dr. Waiter Maxwell, who leaves for the Colonics within the next three months: "Honolulu, June 21, 1900. "Hon. A. T. Atkinson. Superintendent of Public Instruction: "Dear Sir: In view of tho circumstance that I shall be leaving Hawaii in the course of a few months, I must decline the honor of serving with you upon the new Board of Commissioners of Education. "Had I been remaining In Honolulu I should not have asked you to receive my resignation, but it appears advisable that you should begin your aew work with commissioners likely to be permanent. "I sot oaly cosgratul&ie your per- sonally, Mr. Superintendent, on your appointment, but I wish yon unqualified success In this paramount national work. Very truly, "WALTER MAXWELL." The Superintendent stated that ne had now a serious question to present to the board. He wished to call their attention to the case of a teacher, sick with consumption. The rtport from f wnich he read was by the Inspector- general. In his qpinion. It would be almost a crime for the Board of Education to allow a consumptive to mingle with and teach children in the public schools. He had read up very carefully on the scope and danger of tuberculosis, and was of the opinion that it was e duty of the Board of Education, as puimc officials, to guard the school interests especially at this point. Commissioner H. M.Von Holt said he was very glad to hear the Superintendent express the opinion he had. The question had already been brought up at a previous meeting of the Board of Education, and he was as fully convinced as he had been then that immediate action should be taken by the department to put itself on record. Superintendent Atkinson suggested that the proper thing to do was to ask the executive officer of the Board cf Health to examine all suspected cases, including the present case. Commissioner Von Holt thought a resolution should be passed by the Board of Education and placed on record covering the subject. He therefore offered the following, which was unanimously carried: "Resolved, That in view of the fact of the great increase of tuoerculosis in the Territory of Hawaii, that it is the sense of the Commissioners of Public Instruction that the employment of, teachers and the attendance of pupils suffering from tuberculosis or any contagious and infectious disease is against the interests of the schools, and that the commissioners request the Board of Health to require of its executive officers throughout the Territory, that all teachers In the employ of this board, and all pupils attending tho schools, whom they have reason to believe are suffering from tuberculosis or other contagious or infectious disease, be at once reported to this department through the Board of Health." Superintendent Atkinson said he believed this official protest would serve to call the attention of the public to tliis question of so much vital importance, and would serve to point out that immediate action was necessary. He had already discussed the matter with Dr. Day, who was deeply interested in some plan for general relief from the scourge, and he was sure he "would shortly be able to present oio results of Dr. Day's ideas to the board for action. The question of a committee on rules of order was again brought up, but deferred until the Inspector-General was present, as it was learned that a set of rules had already been drawn. The matter of salaries was again brought up, and the Superintendent stated that the monthly limit for the salaries of teachers under the Territorial government and until the Legislature met would be $25,000. At present there was being spent a little over $19,000. This meant a saving of about $5,000 a month. It was now a question if the money could bo used. Was it wise to use it In , e as it had been , , ,.. Bead , used in the pat would suggest that in the future the appropriations for school buildings should be general and not specific, as it was impossible to foresee the wants of the future. Dr. Rolgers read several applications for positions as teachers, which were all referred to the committee. Action on a petition from the residents of Punalua to have a school moved was deferred. a. petition from the teachers of North Kona about vacations, asking a change and demanding that they be paid for extra work was read. A letter from M. F. Scott was read relating to the petition of the teachers of North Kona. Mr. Von Holt made a statement of the position taken by the Board of Education when the coffee pickers petition was up for discussion. The schools In question wore closed under the orders t of the board on June S and would not again open until July 9. It was difficult to see how the teachers could get in five weeks extra time. This, however, was finally admitted, and upon the suggestion of Superintendent Atkinson the matter was deferred until the presence ot the inspector General. iue question of salaries was again taken up, and upon motion of Mrs. E. W. Jordan it was ordered uiat the sal aries of Teachers Taggart and Brodle be raised to $1,200 a year from the 1st of April, 1S0& The board adjourned at 4 p. m. 4 It Saved His Baby.

PAIMT OF 8 HAWAMX BOPS Peopl Here Will be Hit if -the United States Pails to Pay. VIEWS OX THE SITUATION. SMALL SOLDERS MAT HAVE TO SACRIFICE THETR INVESTMENTS. The Only Kay of Hope is the Payment of Nearly a Million. on Postal Deposits in July. The"question of .the payment of the Hawaiian bonds Is of more vital importance than at first sight it might appear. The individual interests of the Is-ands are largely bound up with the payment of the Hawaiian bonds. It was generally understood that when the Newlands resolution was passed that that would be a sufficient warrant to the United States Treasurer to apply money to the payment of the Hawaiian bonds. This view was taken by prominent Senators who were in touch with the administration at Washington. Private letters have been received here by men close to the Washington administration which showed that the view of the United States authorities was that the Hawai ian bonds would be taKen upovlthout delay. It was the presence of such knowledge here that caused large 'local investments, which are now threatened to be tied up under the failure of Congress to pass special appropriations for calling in the Hawaiian bonds. The late announcement which has reached here that the Secretary of the Treasury has arrived at the conclusion that the Newlands resolution will not be deemed sufficient for the calling in of the Hawaiian bonds, without a special appropriation bill, has been received with some consternation in financial circles. A prominent financier said Iat everting: "I do not wish to say that the non-payment of the Hawaiian bonds at the time specified will cause more than a panic; I do not like to say it would create a crash, which, by the way, would relieve the situation, but would crush hundreds in the istt. Thevc arc investments made hsiu ly tli 3 hundred, snd made by men of lln.l'v.d means, who have heretofore put their savings Into Hawaiian securities, which would bo first struck down. "TUue have been largely the supporters of the annexation movement and always the supporters of American authority in Hawaii. Now, i Congress has failed to pass tho act of relief expected by these men, It means that the United States Government is tying up the savings of a lifetime by the change of government, to the ruin of the, men who have stood by American interests here in their hour of need." Another gentleman who has been prominent in financial matters in Hawaii, past and present, said to a Republican reporter last night: "I believe that the bonds will be taken up as proposed. I cannot imagine that the United States will stand for an instant on the bare interpretation of the Newlands resolution, when thousands here will suffer in quence. I do not believe they will do this, informed, as they must be, of the present state of our money market. A refusal to pay the bonds, as promised and expected, will cause much suffering. It is not the moneyed men that will be hit; It is the small holders of Hawaiian bonds who will he forced to sell, if the bonds ar enot paid." The only ray of hope that could be gleaned in half a dozen Interviews was furnished by an official, who said that it was understood the Postal Savings deposits, .amounting to ?760,000, would be paid depositors during all of July. Some hold that these payments would take placeraly on the 1st of July. This, he did not think, would be the case. RUSSIA HOLDS WHIP BUD BELIEF IN FAS. EAST THAT SHE CONTROLS EXPRESS DOWAGER. Hentae of German Navy Talks of Stirring- Events Ib Lieutenant-Captain Hentze of the German navy, on & leave ot absence, en roue ib San Francisco on the Nippon Maru, made some very interesting statements to The Republican last night. He was here 17 years ago on the Princess Albertina and has vivid ot former days. Captaln, Hentze. has been in the Chinese station foirfive years, and Is well posted oa affairs Ib the? OAeat, although be diptoBiaiically started th twview with (he atateaest that he ' ' iV knew nothing and had seen nothing, having been, only at the ports. Speaking of the Russians, he said they were magni3eently equipped for the coming struggle. They have a very fine fleet, and their officers, he declared, were picked men, the flower of the Kussian navy. "Why, I remember when I was there some 17 years ago, they had only an old frigate and one or two other ships. Now they have, a splendid fleet and the best officers of their navy. It Is no use to try to discount their power. All the papers, the Chinese papers especially, credit Russia with having the Empress Dowager entirely in their control. Their diplomats are very shrewd and very successful. The railroad they are supposed to be building is probably not a Russian enterprise. They have interested a great deal of Chinese capital and also considerable Fiench money. It will eventually connect Peking with the Siberian railway." Captain Hentze confirmed Prince Dorogororikoff s statement thatthe Siberian railway is completed, and said he understood it was already possible to go from St Petersburg to Vladivostok by rail, except where a lake Inter venes, which has to be crossed by small ferryboats. He intimated that Prince Dorogoroukoff was more likely on diplomatic than commercial business, as he corresponds to the Duke of Norfolk in England, is of the royal family and an accomplished diplomat He did not seem to think the Siberian-American steamship enterprise much more than a diplomatic dodge. Captain Hentze left China at the end of May and stopped off in Japan. "Did you see any preparations for war in -Japan?" he was asked. "I saw the maneuvers of the combined Japanese fleet in the Inland Sea. There were probably 150 vessels taking part, including the torpedo-boats. I admire the Japanese and have often visited their ships. They are extremely patriotic, and now not a foreigner is employed aboard any of their men-of-war. All the foreign engineers have been discharged. They have by far the laigest fleet in the East. Their ships are trim and weR managed." "Do the English and Germans get along cordially in China?" "Oh, yes; very much so." "Have you seen anything to indicate any ill-feeling' between the Germans and Americans?" Captain Hentze hesitated, and when the question was changed tS the relations of Atli liral von Deidricks and Admiral Dewe.. he said he believed them to have b . n good friends. "I do not think Admiral Dewey would have written the letter he did otherwise." "Is it not lealiy a matter of Russia and France against the rest of the world in China?" "My opinion is that all nations, America included, are in favor of preserving the integrity of China," said he with evident- sincerity. "America has rec ntl obtained from all the powers a statement to that effect. Should a crash cc.ae, however, America will do her part and take her share. Her commercial interests. are growing immensely. Many German merchants in China tell me that they are now buying in the United States in preference to Germany Of course, it is all right to talk of moral interests and protecting missionaries, but it is the commercial interests that count when it comes to diplomatic action. "I am glad there is no cable here," said he in closing, "else I might be ordered bacit to duty. I have not seen America for 12 years, and look forward to a pleasant tour." "It would be too bad to spoil your pleasure," remarked the reporter. "Yes, but you know what duty is. If there is ready going to be trouble, I want to be at my post" Captain Hentze took a trip to the Pali and praised the improvements Honolulu has made in the past 17 years. He saw the Queen playing golf or cricket this afternoon and remembers her as a princess at Kalakaua's court, where she was a lady of dignified presence. "In fact" said he," there used to be many a Hawaiian dame and maiden at the King's entertainments then, some with shoes and some without, but all with tnat peculiar grace and dignity which mark the Hawaiian." 4 Uncle Sam Won't Trust.

SUFFERED FROM HCXGER. 2TTJHBEB OF IMPORTANT PAPERS CAPTURED BY THE EXPEDITION. They Show That Many of the Local Officials Appointed by Mc- Arthur Are Spies for Aguinaldo. MANILA. June 6. A dispatch from Candon, dated June 4, says .Major P. C. March's men of the Thirty-third Regiment returned to Candon to-day by steamer from Aparri. A majority of them were ready for the hospital. They are thin and weak, having traveled 250 miles in the mountains, during which hey suffered greatly from hunger. Of the 50 horses which started with the battalion 13 survived. The remainder died on the march or fell into canyons. The battalion practically collapsed at Pial, 30 miles from as the result of fevers and ex- nausuon. or tne men were conveyed from Pial to in bull carts, and those falling on the way were carried in litters by the Igorottis with the column. The officers accompanying Major March were Captains Henry L. Jenkin-son and Edward Davis, Lieutenants Carroll Power and Frank L. Case and Dr. John O. Greenwall, assistant surgeon. They say it is all guesswork as to whether Aguinaldo was shot Before the Americans struck Sagat the insurgent chief divided his forces into parties of 10; following different trails. The officer shot was perhaps secretary or adjutant The report among the natives of the region is that Aguinaldo was wounded in the shoulder. The captured papers show that nearly jail the presidents installed by the Americans In Gen. Young's territory are treacherous and have been making ing regular reports to Aguinaldo as to the disposition and movements of American troops, and that they have been collecting and forwarding taxes. The papers also prove the disloyalty of the native telegraph operators whom the Americans retained on the Caya-guan A'alley line. When Tirona surrendered Filipino forces in that section these operators professed loyalty and took the oath of allegiance. But it is now shown that they had been sending Aguinaldo copies of important teiegrams exchanged between the American officials. Letters were also found relating to large contributions forwarded tc A' .. naldo from Spanish and other foreign business men. WASHINGTON, June 6. The President to-day sent to the Senate the reply to the "true version of the Philippine revolution" In that statement Aguinaldo says, among other things, that the Spaniards had captured six guns from the American soldiers in front of Manila before the surrender of that city to the American forces, and that they were recaptured by ae Filipino and returned to the Americans. This statement was referred to the Sen- late, which the correspondence fur nished to-day shows caused Secretary Root to refer it to General F. V. Greene, who was in charge of the American troops, with thex request for an explanation. GenerajjGreene referred Aguinaldo's statement to- the battalion and battery commanders who were engaged against the, Spaniards at the time referred to and he forwarded their replies in refutation of the charge. General Greene himself says: "The statements msde by .iguinaldo are ahsolutelv without foundation; each and every one of them Is untrue. The united States did not fall back; dn abandon a single rifle nor a single field gun; did not make a precipitate the Filipinos did not rush to our assistance; did not recapture the rifles and field guns, and did not return them to the Americans. The Filipinos took no part in the engagements between the Spaniards and American- troops. Every single statement In the extract quoted in your letter is false." ! i PROTJD CUBANS DISLIKE TOIL.

Secretary Long- Presents tho Diplomas. Congressman Berry Acts as Orator of the Day. June S. Graduation week at the Naval Academy ended today when 61 cadets received diplomas delivered by Secretary of the ravy John D. Long. The ball at night, an elaborate social function, completed the festivities. On Monday the cadets, other than those who graduated to-day, of will enter upon the summer voyage on the Chesapeake and Newport Thoy will return from the cruise the last,of August. The Academy chapel, where the clos ing exercises were held, was to-day crowded long before the ceremonies began. At the last minute Congressman Robert S. Bprry. was .substituted tor orator In place of the Hon. Thomas E. Watson, who, on account ot sickness, was unable to be present Congressman Berry said he had watched the course of the academy with deep interest in the four or five years he had been in Congress, and he had been in hopes at that to-day this class would have entered immediately into the service. of "You deserved it," he continued; "you showedat the beginning of the war with Spain an anxiety to serve your country. Some of you besought me to aid you to do it Many of you did serve in that war, and some ot your class sleep the -long sleep. You are auout to receive the reward of four years of service. It ought to have been a greater reward the diplomas of final graduation." On the platform were Captain Clark, formerly of the Oregon; Commander Wainwright, formerly of the Gloucester, and Captain Cook, formerly of the Brooklyn. The diplomas to the graduates were delivered at te band stand. Secretary Long said In part: "This is not the commencement of your official life. It is the extension of it You are the representatives of your country, and recollect, as you each personally perform your duty with honor and credit so you will by that much more reflect the honor and glory of your country. This school has the widest of curriculum of any in the land and yet you cannot depend on that to stand you In good stead. George Washington. Alexander Hamilton and Andrew Jackson could not pass the examinations of the schools, and yet what made them, great will have to be your reliance character. You must follow their rules of manliness and the character. You must go forth as the representatives ot a policy of peace and concord with the whole world. You must carry the flag as representatives of the American citizens." William McEntee of Minnesota was the honor man of the class. Cadet H.

Armor Makes to bo Required to Give the Government Advantage of Any Improvements in Production. WASHINGTON, June 13. The Navy Department has completed the ation of a circular calling for bids for supplying armor plate in the navy, and it will be ready for issuance as soon as certain typographical changes have, been made. For the first time the department has adopted the policy of classifying the armor called for in the advertisement Under the price heretofore, paid for armor it was scarcely worth while to make any distinction between the various grades of armor required. At the enhanced price now prevailing a considerable saving can be effected by classifying the armor. Thus, the advertisement calls first for the highest quality of face-hardened armor.'treated " by Krupp process. The second class is composed ot armor of generally lesser thickness than class 1, used In plates, where the requirements are not so severe, and In this case the ordinary armor will serve. Class 3 will be made up -of thin plates, bolts, nuts, etc, material not requiring any kind hardening process. The latter requirement Is that the manufacturers must furnish armor of a certain specified grade. The new circular contains an Important addition in that the annormakers are to supply armor ot the very highest grade. Under that clause, if there are improvements in production tend- , ing to enhance the quality ot the armor the contractors must give them to the Government without any extra cost The circular, as already forecasted, provides for the reception of bids for three specified quantities of armor, and the largest quantity needed is called for once to test the ability of the Government to secure a reduction in price armor by placing a large order. The ordinance bureau has not yet been acquainted with the reported Intention of the great steel-working concerns in the United States to enter info competition with the two companies which have supplied armor for the navy heretofore, 'it Is known to the bureau that this particular concrrn ha3 spent a large amount of money during the past year in very extensively enlarging its plants, but so far a is known the additions are adaptable to the production of commercial .iteel and are not specifically devised for armor-making. 4 ALLEN AND PETTIGREW 8AEO TO HAVE FOUGHT. WASHINGTON, Ji ue S. Shortly before the tinal adjoun oient ot Congress yesterday a scene w. s enacted in the Democratic cloakroom of the Senate that was- not down or the bills. Senator Allen addressed som free and frank remarks to Senator Sutler concerning the latter's alleged violation of an agreement that thei should, be. no nomination for Vice resident at the Sioux Falls convent! n. The remarks fitted Senator Pettigrrw. apparently, aa well as Senator Butler, and he took the matter; up. Allen the a as' a traitor. JcttlgrcV reeestedf1 term, and the two Populist statesmen clinched. Friends Interfered ber fore many blows wer struck affair was ended for the time being. The trouble grew out of the nomination of Charles A Towne for Vice-President by the Sioux Falls Populist Convention. It seems that there was an understanding between Alien, as Bryan's nearest friend, and Butler and that no candidate should be named. It Is now charged that Butler and Pettigrew went back on the understanding and helped to nominate Towne, thereby disarranging the plans ot Bryan and Allen, whose program it was to have Bryan named for 'President by the Populists and to leave the second place on the ticket unfilled.
