HENRY PERRIN BALDWIN.
A MAN BEYOIND ALL EXCEPTION."
THIS thought went out from all thoso who gazed
on the remains of the departed, at his Maluhia
home last Monday afternoon.
The living at this time can hardly comprehend the
great loss these islands, and more especially the isl
and of Maui, have sustained by tho passing away of
this noble character. Trained from boyhood to high
ideals he devoted his great powers of mind and will
to the upbuilding of all classes. As the builder and
developer of the great sugar industries of this island
he was a benefactor, and it is not in the public inter
est that these things bo soon forgotton.
Living as ho did for many years under a monar
chal form of government, he came to know tho native
Hawaiian, and to love their character. In the
troublous times of the overthrow his voice was always
raised on tho side of right and justice, and up to tho
time of his death the Hawaiian had no friend more
true, and no stouter champion than H. P. B :ldwin.
By virtue of the high position he has always held
in the councils of those in authority, and by his strong
personality, he has been a great factor both socially
and politically, in shaping the destinies of these islands,
and here perhaps he will be missed more than in any
other line of activity. Ho was sincerely loved by all
for his unswerving advocacy of what he thought was
right, for his simplicity and unselfishness, and above
all for the great good to which he has always turned
One of the strongest characteristics in his makeup
was his ability as a peacemaker. Strife and discord
found no favor with him, and in his kindly manner he
could always sway opposing factions.
His kindliness was proverbial, and the lowest work
er on his plantation was sure of justice when his
troubles were brought'beforo the Chief. He lived a
noble life, was always master of himself, and as he
laid down the burdens of life, it was his to say: "I
have lived today, tomorrow let tho Omnipotent invest
the heavens either with black clouds, or with clear
sunshine, still, he shall not efface what is past."
The late II. P. Baldwin was married in the old Union Church in
Wailuku, in the building now being used by the Board of Supervisors.
The wedding march was from the Church to what is now the parsonage
occupied by Rev. R. B. Dodge, where, also, the reception was held.
HENRY PERRIN BALDWIN.
A HEART TRIBUTE TO MAUI'S MOST ILLUSTRIOUS SON.
The master mind is sped
The generous and worldly soul
So apt to pulsate with fulsome reciprocity to its fellows,
The noble characteristics
Of a beautific and God loving mortal
Whose very life punctuated itself with unselfishness personified
Has now gone the way of all flesh,
Leaving behind a sorrowing legion
A legion of friends,
A legion of mourners,
Who mourn the MAN Not his deeds
But the MAN
As he was And as he lived
But always- the MAN.
Maui's heart, bleeding for her absent son
Ruminates sadly. ' ,
Recalls the memory of his life His actions
His spontaneous heart offerings to the needy and poor
For to him, all was ALL.
The master spirit the subtle and tireless brain
That controlled the destinies of many a faithful adherent: t
The man who lived his life
Worshipping his God his Faith and his Bible.
His legacy Is Maui's HEART
The memory of his love,
Is Maui's priceless treasure.

religion. Mr. Baldwin was a born
leader of men. In thin he was
When we ppenk of Mr. Baldwin's
kindly thoughtfulncss, we must in
variably think of that dear, brave,
devoted wife, who shared with her
husband in p. wonderful degree, this
infinite capacity for thoughtful news
and for helpfulness. These two
lives were inseparably woven to
gether. No one will ever know of the my
riads who have I wen helped in some
tangible way not only by that dear
one whose memory we honor today,
but by the living members of this
household. For the father and
mother have taught their lesson
well, and the sons and daughters
have lieen quick to learn it
Death always brings sorrow. But
the dear ones left will not unduely
grieve. Mr. Baldwin himself would
say "Let notyoAr heart Ihj troubl
ed. All is well with me. My body
is at rest from pain and weariness;
my soul is with God."
Many of us had been hoping and
praying that after he had rounded
out his fifty years of plantation life,
which he would have done in an
other year, be might have been
given another ten years. Certainly
no man ever butter earned a life of
fnur score years. And if he could
have had those ten years to use as
he wished, in promoting the King
dom of God, how much could he
have done. See what he has done
amid all the cares and worries of
business life. What would have
been the result in blessing human
ity, if he had been free from busi
ness? He never could have been
idle. It would have lccn but a
complete devotion of his activity to
the service of God and of man.''
The deceased was a native of La
haina, Maui, and a son of one of
the early missionaries, Rev. Dwight
Baldwin 1). D. He was born on
August 29, 1831, and educated in
Oaliu College. Though he died a
very wealthy man, he started with
out means. He began at the bot
tom in the sugar industry and work
ed his own way to managerships
and finally heavy ownerships in the
great properties controlled by Alex
ander & Baldwin.
Mr. Baldwin was one of a family
of eight children, and he and his
wife, whose maiden name was Emily
Alexaner, to whom he was married
on April 5, 1870, also had eight
children, all of whom survive ex
cepting Frederick Chambers Bald
win, who died in New York city in
1905. The children are: Harry
Alexander Baldwin, manager of
Haiku and Paia plantations; Maud
Mansfield, wife of J. P. Cooke of
Honolulu; William Dwight Bald
win, physician, of Honolul; Arthuru
Douglas Baldwin, lawyer, Cleveland,
Ohio; Frank Fowler Baldwin, man
ager of Puunene plantation ; Charlot
te McKinney, wife of Harold W.
Rice, assistant manager of Paia
plantation, and Samuel Alexander,
in the employ of Alexander & Bald
win. There is one surviving brother,
David Dwight Baldwin, residing at
Haiku, Maui, and two sisters,
Abigail Charlotte, wife of Prof. W.
D. Alexander, anil Harriet Melinda,
wife of Hon. Samuel M Damon,
both of Honolulu.
Mrs. C. E. Copeland is returning from
her extended visit to the coast. She will
arrive on the Makura.
Mr. Frank Cooke with his daughters
and a number of invited friends are this
week spending a few days on Molokai,
Lanai and Maui, on the weekly trip of
the Mikahala. They say that there is
no more enjoyable way to see this por

Rev. C. J. Ryder, D. D., Secretary of
the American Missionary Association, is
one of the most popular preachers iu
New York City. He has widely travel
led, and his work takes him over all
parts of the United States. Many times
he has been invited to visit the Islands,
and is now able to be away for several
weeks. He will supply the Central Union
Church for five Sundays beginning the
last Sunday in July. It is is the earnest
hope of some of the Maui friends of Dr.
Ryder that he may be able to spend one
Sunday on this Island.
