GETTING A TEACHER TOE
ISLAND OF XHHATT.
J. K. Burkott, of Kauai, Appointed
Traveling: Normal Instructor
The Trouoles at Zona
Cost of Lights.
The Board of Education disposed of
considerable business of Importance it
yesterday's meeting. The organization
rf the faculty of the night schools was
announced, numerous appointments
and transfers were made; J. K.
formerly teacher of the school at
Kaloa, Kauai, was appointed traveling
normal Instructor, vice Gibson,
vho has been elected principal of one
of the Honolulu schools; the Royal
School building has been ordered sold,
and other business was transacted.
Superintendent Atkinson first read
the report of the Teachers' Committee,
showing the following recommendations
for the appointment of teachers.
Waibec H. II. Coke and Mrs. H. M.
Coke, transferred from Makaweli.
Makawell Mrs. J. H. Godfrey and
Miss Anna Danford.
Koloa George B. Sturgeon and Mrs.
George B. Sturgeon.

place of Miss Pearce.
Kaiulanl Miss Helen Smith, in
place of Miss Llshman.
Honokohau Miss Anne M. Prescott.
Llhue Miss Grace A. Farmar and
Miss Hattie J. Ticer, in place of .Miss
Thatcher and Miss Rice.
Lahalnaluna Thomas Allen Smith,
in place of F. P. Rosecrans.
Kallia, Oabu Nicholas Hoopii,
transferred from Laupahoehoe.
Kamalo Miss Sadie McLaln.
High School Miss Daisy Dietz.
transferred from Kaakopua.
Kaakopua Miss Ida Horner.
Mrs. Taggard returns,
after leave of absence.
Laupahoe M. G. Anjo, in place of
N. Hoopii; transferred.
These recommendations were approved
by a unanimous vote of the
board.
Superintendent Atkinson reported
that the teachers for the various night
schools had been practically decided
upon. Mr. Llghtfoot Is to bo the superintendent
of the system. At the
Royal School there are to be three
teachers. Mr. Elston or Mr. Hills will
be in charge, with Miss Edith Dietz
and Mrs. J. L. Coyney as assistants.
At the Kawaiahao School there will
be but ouo teacher, B. B. Taylor. At
Aala there will be two teachers, either
Mr. Elston or Mr. Hills for principal,
and Mrs. Marshall. Miss Arnold will
have charge of the
School. No appointment has yet been
made for the Molluli, but Superintendent
Atkinson expressed the hope tint
n normal student might be found to
lake this school, as a means of paying
his way.
Superintendent Atkinson said that
ho desired to congratulate the Teachers'
Committee and the board on the
fact that nearly every place had besn
filled. The work of the board Is now
about a month ahead of last year.
The board finds difficulty in getting
a teacher for the school at Nilhau.
This Is the most northerly Island ot
the group. There Is said to be but one
white family ou the Island, and mail
is delivered once a month. It is a good
deal like exile to live there. "To maintain
an English school there," said
Superintendent Atkinson, "I fear we
will have to establish an exceptionally
attractive salary for that position."
No action was taken.
J. K. Burkett of Kauai was formally
elected traveling normal instructor,
vice Mr. Gibson.
Superintendent Atkinson reported
that he had sent Mr. Townsend to
Kona to examine Into the somewhat
muddled conditions there and had
given him full power to act
Superintendent Llghtfoot of ihe
night schools, had reported that the
government electric light was not satisfactory,
and Superintendent Atkinson
brought the matter before the
board. He said the light was either
too bright or else failed wholly. In
the latter event the other light is
switched on. and then big bills are
rendered. He said they had been cast-ins
about to find a suitable substitute,
and had decided on Washington lamps.
These cost $30 each, but they are very
economical in operation.
It was announced that the Royal
School building would be sold at auction
on Friday next The desks and
blackboards have been removed, and
beyond these nothing will be saved, excepting
the bell, flagpole and electric
light wire.
A numerously signed petition from
Hilo prayed that Miss Deyo might be
made principal of the schools there at
an Increased salary. The petitioners
spoke in highest terms of Miss Deyo's"
qualifications. Tfce matter went over.
HUNTER FORGED TO
RETIRE BY 80ERS.
Hard Fighting- on the Hills South
Jof Bethlehem Heport
from Boberta.
London, July 26. Lord Roberts reports
to the War Office today that Gen.
Archibald Hunter's command wap
heavily engaged on July 24 and 25 in
the hills south ot Bethlehem. The
Boers compelled the British to retire
from their position, with about -50
cssu&Ues.
worked around behind the Federals,
while General Hector Macdonald and
General Brace Hamilton were in front
Under date of Balmoral, July- 23,
Lord Roberts telegraphs as follows:
"We marched here yesterday
seeing the enemy.
"The Boers on July 24 engagisi
French and Hutton six miles south of
Balmoral. While Anderson's mounted
Infantry attacked the Boers right
French made a turning movement
around their left Seeing their retreat
threatened, the Boers broke and fled.
French and Hutton followed and proposed
to cross Ollphant's river today
at Naauwpoort. ,
"Casualties were one injured."
COST OF THE INDIAN FAMINE.
Thirteen Million Pounds Spent in
Helief in Past Two Years.
LONDON, July 26. In introducing
Jie Indian budget in the House of
Commons to-day, the Secretary of
State for Indiar Lord George Hamilton,
ommended the patience, resignation,
:ourage and abstention from crime
with which' 52.000,000 of people In the
stricken area have faced famine. The
atest reports from India, he said, were
mythlng but satisfactory. On the
other hand, there were certain compensating
advantages In the shape In
xhlch the revenue year closed. There
?as, he said, a substantial credit balance
of 2,500,000, but the famine expend
Iture and remission of taxation
would turn this into a deficit of
The Government proposed to
the unexpended balance of
to the former loan towards relief;
.his would, he hoped, meet all
If the resources of India did
lot suffice to save the lives of the
stricken, then an appeal would bf
aiade to the imperial exchequer. In
he last two years, Lord Hamilton said
13,000,000 had been expended in famine
relief."
FHE COMMERCIAL CONDITIONS.

Greatest Amount of Building- Going
Oa in, the History of
the City.
The semi-monthly circular of the
"Hawaiian Mercantile Agency, dated
August 1st, shows the following
changes and improvements in business.
"Midsummer heat has somewhat
lightened retail trade, yet even the
falling off from previous months shows
a large balance in favor of the present
ioutrasted with past year. All lines oi
industry are as seasonabley active is
jould be anticipated. Indications point
cO extraordinary activity after the
present prosperous lull, and retailer,
.vill be crowded with business if the
anticipated rush of troops en route to
China takes place. Building is incessant.
More permits are issued than at
my previous time in our history. It
nay be truthfully said that not one
jingle line of business in our Island!
shows weakness in volume of trade.
"Sugar has again advanced and
are not idle for our export trade.
Naval Row is not congested.
"No particular industry needs special
mention, and In our investigation

.omplaining voice. Real estate
its status. Interest has been
lowered as well as exchange rates, and
money is easier on the market A peculiar
and noticeable fact due from our
position doubtless, is that we do not
eel the trade influences usual to a
Presidential campaign year.
