prominent and valued citizen who has

last 3.1 years or more. He was horn

Mr. Farley was in many ways an
exceptional man, such as one does not
meet every day. Of old New Eng
land descent, ho embodied In a re
markable degree the flno traditions
that we read about, but do not always
And in that stock. He was a man of
the most sterling and exacting in
tegrity, scrupulous to the last fraction
of a cent, and the last ounce of
strength, in every obligation or ser
vice that was due Trom him. And with
this integrity there was that methodi
cal and painstaking accuracy which
knew always just how everything
stood and where everything could be
'found. For these reasons, as well as
because of his industry and efficiency,
he has been a very valuable man to
the country during all these years,
and has be6n retained through all the
changing administrations, And when,
a couple of weeks ago he tendered his
resignation, tho governor would not
hear of it "he was too valuable a
man to lose," and promptly set about
arranging a vacation for him instead,
including transportation 'to the coast
He was a man of fine instincts and
high Ideals, to which he clung most
tenaciously, even under tho adverse
circumstances of a meagre life in
humble surroundings. A few good
friends, and a few good books, and the
fine 'inspiration of high ideals and an
honest life, these were the worth
while things for him, and these were
the things which kept him up where
nmny a young man, In similar sur
roundings, slips down into the muck.
He was in many ways a fine example
of tho old time gentleman. He
was generous to a fault, oftentimes
far beyond his means; he was lavishly
and most graciously hospitable, not
only to his friends, but to every
chance stranger who happened along
anxious, even as a bachelor, to con
tinue the fine traditions of the old
mission home which he assumed. He
was courteous and chivalrous in the
treatment of all who came to his
door, and specially kindly and gener
ous to the Hawailans, whom he looked
on, in a way, as his wards, and who
owe him very many substantial favors.
Ho was a public spirited man, and
felt It his duty, in default of any ono
else, to reprcsont Koloa in public mat
ters; nud, being willing, he was often
called upon in this way, and he al
ways gavo careful and conscientious
A great sufferer all his life, with
seldom an hour tree trom pain or dis
comfort, and seldom an unbroken
nights sleep ho was the most cheer
fully patient and uncomplaining man
In tho world no matter how sharply
tho lines of suffering showed in his
Jaco, to any solicitous Inquiry ns to
how ho was feeling today, it was al
ways "pretty fair!" and then he was
ready to take up the subject in hand,
whatever it might be, that you were
interested in, as 'though his own feel
ings were neither here nor there.
He bad a fund of wit and humor
