FUNERAL OF FREDERICK CHAM
The remains of Frederick Cham
bers Baldwin, the fifth son of the
Hon. H. P. Baldwin, were interred
in the "Baldwin Lot" at Makawao
Cemetery, Saturday, November
The funeral services were con
ducted by the Rev. B. V. Bazata,
Pastor of the Makawao Foreign
Church, assisted by a Quartette
Choir, at the Baldwin homo,
Spreckelsville: a large number of
friends were present at the house.
The pall bearers were MessrB. F.
A. Alexander, II. B. Weller, D.
Murdock, W. Nicoll, D. C. Lindsay,
David Fleming, L. von Tcmpsky,
J. N. S. Williams, J. B. Thomson
and L. M. Baldwin.
Bishop Restarick and the Rev.
Canon Ault were present, amongst
many other friends.
The caBket containing the re
mains was merany mauon irom
view bj floral offerings of the most
beautiful dsscription, which were
sent from San Francisco, Honolu
lu, and from all over Maui, testify
to the wide-spread love and esteem
with which Fred Baldwin was re
garded. At the conclusion of the services
at the house, the funeral proces
sion was formed, and slowly wend
ed its way along the road lead
ing to Makawao Cemetery. At
Spreckelsville the road was lined
on both sides by crowds of employ
ees of the H. C. & S. Co; at Paia
by a largo number of the Paia peo
ple; and at a junction of the roads,
by a contingent from Hamakua-
poko, all of whom evinced great
sympathy and respect by silence
and uncovered heads.
A most pathetic incident of the
melancholy journey, was the ap
pearance at the fence of the polo
ground pr.i'.ure,of "Bowery," Freds
favorite horse which was given to
him by his father some twelve
years ago. The beautiful animal
seemed to know that his master
was no more, and watched the pro
cession pass with apparent interest.
Of the scores ol Horses in the pas
ture, "Bowery" was the only one
to act in this way.
On arrival at the Cemetery,
procession filed in silence to
gravo, wnero solemn prayers lor
tho dead, and supplications for the
living were offered up by tho Rev
Dr. E. G. Beckwith, the aged friend
and counsellor, of tho afflicted, in a
most touching manner; and tho
last sad offices were performed
amid tho sobs of surrounding
friends, who wept in sympathy
with the bereaved father, mother,
brothers and sisters, at tho Un
timely fato of one, cut off m the
morning of life, who was probably
the best loved of any of our
Of His Father Hon H. P.
In another column we announ '
the death of Mr. W. P. L. Bett
head chemist at tho Puunene Mill,
which occurred at his residence
early Saturday morning Nov. 4.
The cause of death was heart
failure, Mr. Bett had not been feel
ing very well foe several days pre
viously, but ho was in good spirits,
and evidently felt better the even
ing of the 3rd, so that his sudden
end came as a great shock to his
friends and acquaintances.
Mr. Bett was born at Pitermo.Lun-
die Dundee.Scotland March 21,1878,
and was in the 28th year of his age.
He was educated at the High School
and at University College Dundee,
and came out to this country some
five years ago in the company of
several other young Scotchmen,
and with some of them entered tho
employ of tho Hawaiian Com
mercial & Sugar Co. Ho leaves a
widow and two children at Puu
nene, a mother and sister in fecot
land and one brother in South
Mr. Bett filled a responsible
position in the Puunene Mill with
credit to himself and satisfaction
to his employers, and while of a
retiring disposition, was much liked
and respected by those who knew
him well. He was a member of tho
Hawaiian Sugar Chemists Associa
tion, to tho proceedings of which
he has contributed valuable infor
mation. He was alEO a Freemason
and a member of Lodgo Maui.
Tho funeral services wore held
at the Masonic head quarters, and
at tho Church of the Good Shepherd,
Wailuku. The burial place was Wai
luku Cemetery. The remains wero
accompanied to Gods aero by the
bereaved widow, the Masons in a
body, and a large number of sym
pathetic friends, and wero laid to
rest according to tho solemn and
impressive rituals of the Episcopal
Church and the Masonic Order.
The Kihei road has been com
pleted by conliator Duggan.
This road is about three miles
long and extends from II. C. it S,

K. P. MALL FIRE.
A fire which came near being
very serious in nature occured in
the new Knights of Pythias build
ing. orkmen were installing a new
Aceteline Gas plant and were
working in the attic of tho build
ing. Owing to the attic being dark
a large hanging oil lamp was used
to light the room.
By breaking of a fnstenimr tho
lamp fell to the floor and a quanti
ty of oil was spilled on the floor
which became ignited and soon
the floor and wall were ablaze.
Through the quick action of S.
B. Harry and D. L. Meyer manager
of Maui 'Wine L & Co. the blaze was
smother with bags. Tho lamp
while still ablaze was wrapped in
bags and thrown into the street.
A fire alarm was given and the
volunteer lire corps turned out
promptly taking with them the
hoso cart. On the down grade on
Main Street tho cart becatno un
manageable and ran into the fence
in front of tho residence of T. B.
Lyons narrowly missing police
officer Valdeniar Rogers who was
assisting in steering the cart. That
he did not suffer a broken leg is a

ing and one of the most expensive
buildings in town. Had it burned
tho Knights would have suffered a
great loss, Tho Maui Lodgo of
masons would have suffered for

Tho heaviest losers however would
have been tho Maui Wine & Liquor
Co. who occupy tho ground floor of
the building and have a large new
warehouse adjacent to the" hall
Had the fire gotten beyond con-
troll the total loss would probably
have been near ?40.000, while the
insurance is about 18,000. While tho
prompt action of tho fire corps is
to be commended wo suggest that
they drill more frequently in future
for work that will surely bo theirs'.
