1 Jus! Tribute. f '
I The report of Walter F,. Wall,
I Surveyor of the Territory, for the
year ending June 30, 1902, contnins
in good portrait of Professor William
l)e Witt Alexander and a relerence
1 in the text to his connection with
I the bureau from which the follow
ling extrttrtsTtre taken:
"Prof. W. D. Alexander, having
resigned his position as the head of
this office to take charge of the
branch -office of the U. S. Coast and
Geodetic Survey in the Islands,-I
was appointed to fill the vacancy so
caused on the first day of February,
"Reference to the resignation of
Prof. Alexander cannot be made
without a tribute to the character
and services of that gentleman. For
a period of over thirty years, begin
ning with the inception of the Gov
ernment Survey of the Islands, he
was the responsible head of an
office that had before it the task of
bringing ordci out of chaos; of per
forming a work which called alike
for high scientific attainments and
practical knowledge, and the scope
of which was continually widened
with its own progress.
v"Frotu the humble beginning in
187 1, when with two youthful as
sistants he began preparing for the
original base line, to the day of his
resignation from u well-ordered
office with its invaluable records,
his constant aim was to serve the
Then, referring to some account
of the duties and difficulties con
fronting the fotmer Surveyor Gen
eral contained in appendices, the
report continues :
"How well these duties have
been performed and difficulties over
come has been testified to by visit
ors whose professional standing
qualifies them to speak with author
ity, and of the lasting values of his
services none can doubt who know
what these services have been. To
those, who have been associated
with him in' his work, and to all
acquainted with his character and
attainments it will be a satisfaction
to know that, in accepting a new
position of trust and responsibility,
lie may still co-operate with the de
partment which he has served with
Information is given regarding
the office staff. O. L. Sorenson,
for a long time assistant in office
and city work, has been made chief
assistant. S. M. Kauakauui, the
well known Hawaiian surveyor,'
has been appointed first assistant.
John M. D01111 has been acting as
second assistant and chief of- the
drawing division. Pros. Curtis J.
Lyons, besides continuing as direc
tor of the Weather Bureau, renders
much valuable professional service
in the general office work. Ii. I).
Baldwin took charge of the Hilo
city work and directed the field
parties ilouig homestead survey 111
the IIiloand Puna districts. His
work is highly praised by Surveyor
In the record of field work, the
services are mentioned of Wolde
mar Midler, Mr. Kauakanui, Geo.
F. Wright, Chas. V. K. Dove, F.
I,. Lowell, J. S. Emerson and F. E.
Regarding city surveys, S. M.
Kerns is stated to have taken a
deep intesest in the improvements
to the streets of Honolulu, his ef
forts having done much to bitter
the general appearance of the city.
It is mentioned that special atten
tion has been given to the furnish
ing of the new street lines and
grades for new buildings. There
have been 403 building permits
Many pages are devoted to details
of the work of the bureau. IS. D.
Baldwin's report constitutes appen
dix No. :. Prof. C. J. Lyons,
whose portrait is given, writes ap
pendix No. 2, on "Meteorology and
Tides." No. 3, "The History of
the Hawaiian Government Survey,
19 pages, and No. 4, "Laud Mat
ters in Hawaii," 42 pages under 15
subdivisions. The last two treatises
are of great interest, historically
and technically. They clear up
the mystery of Hawaiian land di
visions and titles, which bewilder
'the mind of anyone having to do
with such matters without ex- j
pcricucc or preparation.
Under the separ te cover Survey
or Wall brings lus report up to 1
December 31, 1902. It tells of the1
work continuing, ns time permits,
of establishing levels and grades in j
Honolulu. The section covered
extends from Moanalua to Diamond
Head and from the water front up
Kalihi, Nuuauu and Manoa valley.
The office has continued to be of
service to the various departments
of the Government by furnishing
information bearing on many meas
ures under consideration. Details
of the work for the six months re
veal activity in every branch.
Estimates for the current biennial
period give 25,800 for salaries and
and $75,700 for general expenses.
