SCHOOLS AND SCHOLARS. · The Hawaiian nation possesses a complete educational system, administered by a Board of Trustees, and endowed by liberal appropriations from the national revenue, amounting for the biennial period of 1886–88 to $322,348, and for the succeeding biennial period 1888–90 to $391,438.

The total number of schools in the Kingdom is 178, and of the scholars 10,006, mostly taught in English. The number of teachers employed in all the schools is 368, of whom 252 are foreigners, and 116 of Hawaiian birth. The public schools are all free, with one exception, while the independent or private schools charge a weekly fee of from fifty cents to one dollar for each pupil. Every district in the Kingdom

is provided with several schools, either free, public, or private, and settlers can secure for their children the

educational advantages of other countries. .: The Legislature, on the third reading of the Appro· priation Bill, affirmed by a vote of thirty-one to seven,

the principle that boarding-schools established by religious bodies, or private persons, being for the general good, are entitled to assistance from the State, and passed the following appropriations: Hilo Boarding School, $1,500; Kohala Seminary, $1,500; Iolani College, $1,500; Makawao Seminary, $1,500; Kauai, Industrial School, $2,000; Kawaiahao Seminary, $1,500; Christ Church Family Boarding School, South Kona, Hawaii, $500. This is a very fair distribution of aid. The Legislature of 1890 voted $20,000 to St. Louis College and its branches in Wailuku and Hilo. This no doubt is the explanation why the Roman Catholic schools do not share in the appropriation of 1892.

The Rev. Alex. Mackintosh, of St. Andrew's Cathedral, Honolulu, has received a communication from the Department of the Interior, Bureau of Education, Washington, D. C., in which he is invited to attend the World's Congress and to take part in the deliberations of the National Educational Association. He is also requested to accept a place on the list of Honorary Vice-Presidents. Mr. Mackintosh is principal of the “Royal School.”

The Rev. Vincent H. Kitcat, formerly head-master of

Iolani,” and later at Lahaina, Maui, is now chaplain of the Cathedral, Honolulu.

The reverend gentlemen, Messrs. Barnes and Gowan, are now engaged in Church work in British Columbia.

Eldress Phoebe, late of “St. Andrew's Priory,” is gone to her rest. Never can I forget the kindness, the unstinted hospitality, the true Christian charity of this remarkable English woman. During a severe illness these dear “Sisters," together with Mrs. Mackintosh and Mrs. Willis, watched over and tended me in turn, and when convalescent their homes were also mine. If you know anything of the sweetness of a true English home, you know what I enjoyed.

The whole community received a shock when the Kinau arrived before its usual time on Tuesday evening last, and brought the sad news of the death of Miss Stevens, elder daughter of the United States · Minister. The deceased lady had been on a visit to the Volcano, leaving Honolulu on the U. S. S. Boston, but remaining behind to see some friends on Hawaii. On attempting to board the Kinau at the dangerous landing of Kukaiau, the boat was dashed to pieces. Miss Stevens was either drowned or died from the shock to her nervous system. The native boat-steerer made heroic efforts to save her, and was himself severely injured.

Miss Stevens was a universal favorite in Honolulu
