WAILUKU, MAUI, H. .T., SATURDAY. APRIL 18, i908
Worked Among Chinese for
Mr. Tin? Ah Lin, thu Chinese
evangelist of Wailuku, died at his
homo in the early morning of Tues
day April 14th. after about two
weeks sickness." lie hn'd been in
the Puunencflldspital up to within
four clays, of his death, but was
brought homo last week on Friday
in order that ho might he surround
ed by his family and friends, who
were all anxious that ho should
spend his last days in his home.
Everything possible had been done
for him but his ago and a deep
seated disease, which had been on
him for many years wore too much
for his strength.
Captain Clark of the Salvation
Army, who had been a special
friend of Ah Lin's, Rev. R. 13.
Dodge, Rev. (5. Tanaka and Mr.
Che Jan of Makawao conducted' the
funeral services from the Chinese
Church at ten o'clock on Tuesday
morning. A long ' procession of
Chinese friends and townspeople
conducted the body to the Chinese
burial ground at Waiehu. .
Mr. Ting Ah Lin was born in
1845 at. Shack Lung, China. His
family was not Christian but all
became such soon after the death
af his father, who professed his be
lief and requested thathischildrcn
do the same. Ah Lin was the lifst
to follow his father's wishes, and
immediately entered the German
Mission at Canton, where he com
pleted his course and began evange
listic work at the age of 17 under
the direction of the German pastor
of that city. Later moving to Hong
Kong, he married and when thirty
years old came to Hawaii, whore
ho served out his contract at tho
Kohala Plantation. Here he re
mained eleven years, preaching on
Sundays and visiting his country
men, always carrying on tho work
hojhad begun in the German Mis1
sion. In 18SG he moved to Paia,
and two years later came to Wai
luku, where ho had a small coffee
shop. Since 1890 he has given his
whole time to evangelistic work
among his countrymen, being in
tho employ pf tho Hawaiian Board.
Ho raised all tho money for the
pretty Kula Chinese Church, which
(he has regularly visited until .with
in the last few months, when feeble
health prevented. He had the
largest share in raising the neces
sary funds for the Chinese Church
and Parsonage in Wailuku. Ho
has regularly visited tho Lahaina
Chincso and also all the Chinese in
Central Maui. His countrymen
have greatly loved him, and ho had
tho respect and confidence of the
whole community, as was evidenced

Robb Favors new Road and
States his Views.
Editor Maui News:
In your report in the Maui News
of Aplil 11th. Re Supervisor's in
vestigating road matters at Lahaina
you state that I l ie re was .no objec
tion to the nbwr;ioad .except from
one man. After reading fho whole
report one would infer that I was
that one man referred to. One
paragraph reads one of the return
ing party stated that he had heard
a strenuous kick from Win. Robb
the plantation warehouse keeper
who objected to the new road on
tho solo ground that it took all his
front yard. As ivTnattor of fact 1
did not see one of the Supervisors or
any of the investigators -and had
absolutely nothing to say for or
against the road to any of them and
how the returning party could
spring such a good one is more than
I can fathom. If returning party had
investiuated verv closelv ho would
have found that the new road pass
ing my place is already graded and
is fenced between tins raod and my
house leaving a yard a good 50x130
feet between my veranda and the
fence almost enough for one of our
small farm enthusiasts to start on.
The only criticisms I have offered
about the road was to the road hum
intl lHold him I thought the road
should go in tho center of tho fifty
feet alloted to it instead of being
right up against the Makai fence
leaving a space of twenty feet on one
side and nothing on the other I have
also said that the work could be
done cheaper by contract. T dont
think there is any question but what
the new road when finished will be
a great improvement on the old one
which for over a mile is almost im
passible in wet weathers and if re
turning party had taken the trouble
to call at the landing on his way
homo I would have told him so..
Trusting you will insert the above
in your valuable paper and' thank
ing you in advance.
I remain yours very truly
