WAILUKU, MAUI, H. T., SATURDAY. JULY 15, j91I
A Sorrowing People Pay Loving Tribute
to the Dead.
Tlic funeral of tlio Into II. P.
Baldwin Inst Monday proclaimed
more plainly than any written or
spoken word, tlio place lie has filled
in tlie hearts of the people. It was
the plain people who spoke; those
who had nothing, wished for noth
ing," and could give nothing, except
that devotion which came from the
hearts, of a sincere and loving
populace to one whom they all con
sidered a friend.
Business associates and acquaint
ances both on "Maui and from Ho
nolulu were there in large, numbers,
but it was the mute appeal on the
countenances of the plantation
laborers that told the story of great
ness in the life just ended.
The funeral services were conduct
ed by the Rev. E. B. Turner, as
sisted by Revs. Dodge, Judd, White,
Santos, and Scudder. Rev. E. B.
Turner spoke feelingly of his con
nection with Mr. Baldwin, as his
pastor, and we give below a portion
of his address:
"If we were here today to eulogize
the ten talent life of the beloved
father, husband and friend, who
has just answered the last great
summons of his captain, whose he
was, and whom he served so faith
fully, volumes could well bo written.
But this is an occasion when our
thoughts lie too deep for utterance.
There isn't so much to say as there
is to think.
It isn't my purpose to make any
historical sketch of the life of Mr.
Baldwin. Suflice it to say that the
history of these "Islands, and es
ncciall.v of Maui, can never bo
written, without the name and in
fluence of our departed brother,
stamped upon every page.
1 feol a certain hesitancy m say
ing anything today, because there
are so many here who have known
Mr. Baldwin longer and more inti
mately than it has been my privilege
to know him . Some of you have
grown up with him from boyhood
days and have known him daily
almost the full span of tho three
scoro years and ten. Still, as hav
ing been blessed with the rare honor
of having been his pastor for four
years, it may bo fitting for me to
leave my testimony as to the worth
and influence of the kind counsellor,
unon whose lace we shall look no
more. I have always looked to Mr.
) Baldwin as to a father, and found
his advice invariably good During
these four years of friendship, I sup
pose I have enjoyed but few solid
hours of quiet conversation with
Mr. Baldwin, for ho was a busy
man. When 1 saw him, it was
usually to discuss some question
pertaining to the growth of tho
Kingdom. But all theso years
have felt a constant sympathy aim
fellowship, that has buoyed mo up
in time of encouragement as well as
On an occasion such as this, wo
must guard against extravagance of
language, as we seek to do honor to
the memory of ono whoso spirit has
just entered the heavenly portals
But I think there is not one hero
but who will agree with mo, that
ho has never beforo known a moro
remarkable man. Remarkable in
this sense as having being able to
bring good things to pass thing
that stand for progress in business
for social justico and righteousness
for purity and ellie.iency in politics
and for tho advancement of true

liana celebrated its Fourth in fit
ting stylo. The people from tho
outside districts came in early to
attend tho celebration. A proces
sion of school children with Amer
ican Flags headed by the leading
citizens of the district and the Kau-
ki Brass Band marched from tho
Kaeleku Sugar Co. s mill to the
Hana Landing. After forming into
circle Rev. L. K. Kakani said a
prayer and Mr. W. A. Anderson
delivered an oration and also read
tho Declaration of Independence
He touched upon tho history of our
country and wound up by saying
that this year was the first time in
listory that an English warship
had saluted the American Flag in
Honolulu harbor, and it was.to bo
hoped that in tho near future theso
two leading nations of tho world
would be bound tighter by the ties
of friendship and love.
After tho oration the Bchool chil
dren of the public schools lead by
Mrs. J. M. Medeiros sang America.
At 10 o'clock sharp tlio sports be
1st 2 milo canoe race 5 oars
won by Kcmohi's double canoe. This
was a very spirited contest and up
to the last it was very closely con
tested. 2nd 1 mile single canoe race 1

mile, won by Mahiai.
4th Diving coiitest, won by Ma-

Alter the Aquatic bports came
the .races on tho beach. Hero all
kinds of games and race for chil
dren took place. The prize were
toys donated by Mr. James Donald
of tho Hana Store. At 11 : 30 P. M,
a generous friend camo to the rescue
of the tired crowd with a greased
pig in a bag. The beauty of it all
was that nobody seemed to know
how the pig was greased and every
body was willing to try his luck at
making the catch. It so happened
that when the pig was let out of the
bag every body in the crowd made
a rush for the poor brute and to the
sorrow of a great many of tho spec
tators who had come dressed in
their Sunday go to meeting clothes,
for tho shy little animal left his tell
tale marks on tlio crowd. He was
greased, and greased well with lamp
black, and it took some of tho
would-bc catchers a while before
they could make a presentable ap
pearance for tho luau. It was lots
of fun though and those who did
not partake of tho grease had a jolly
good time joshing tho ones who
took a divo into the sport.
At noon every one of the 500
guests sat down to a Sumptious Ha
waiian Luau prepared in ancient
Hawaiian stylo and tho kind that
Hana is noted 'for, prepared by the
best Chefs of the district.
At 3 o'clock the best race furnish
ed by the Sports Committeo was

who has taken no particular pains
to conceal his identity, stepped up

When he poked his noso inside tho

first remark made by tho collector
convinced the inspector that the

So far as Maui is concerned, thoro
will be no polo this year. Things
wero progressing favorably, and the
signs pointed to tho most successful
eason in the history of the game
on the islands. The death of II.
Baldwin, however, hits put a
quietus on the sport. The other
teams will probably play, but with
Maui out of it a great part of tho
nterest will be gone. No matter
who should win, there will bo that
feeling of uncertainty as to what,
might have happened had the Maui
team been playing.
Die local fans have had a surfeit
of sports and sporting events, dur
ing the past two weeks. Not tho
least interesting of these was the
boxing exhibition given at tho
Orpheum., The boy Ingle who
arned the decision ovcr Ben Do
Mello, showed class, and if ho can
get on with some of tho Honolulu
boys near his own weight, ho will
open tho eyes of the Honolulu fans.
De Mello outweighed Ingle by twen
ty pounds, and hustled him about
tho ring in lively fashion at times,
but after each rush Ingle would
come up smiling and lash out with
either hand. That he is a 'two
handed fighter Do Mello can vouch
for. As soon as Do Mollb. got out
of tho way of a right swing,' ho
would run into a left uppercut, and
things wero coming Ins way, pretty
regularly tho entire ten rounds.
Besides being fast, Ingle has a
wonderful defense and this as much
:is anything else proved tho undoing
of Do Mello. 1

Jack" havo always been the best of
friends. What caused the rift in
the luto was Jack's presence at tho
launching of a big sampan and the
prominent part ho took in tho'
ceremonies. It may bo that the
collector is jealous of tho little at

are paying the distingliised attorney
