A TRIBUTE OP HONOR
was. paid to the late Associate Jus
tice Robertson ou Saturday morn
ing by the Supreme Court, its ofllc
era and the Bar, by unveiling liis
portrait and having it hung in the
Supreme Coin t room.
Man visitors and others anxious
to do honor to the memory of the
late Judge were present, and a good
ly number of Hawaiian aud foreign
members of the Bar. His Majesty
the King sat on the Bench to the
right of Chief Justice A. F. Judd,
who was supported on the left by
Mr. Justice Austin.
After the Court had been formally
opened by Marshal Parke, the Chief
Justice asked him to unveil the pic
ture. He then rose aud made a few
remai ks of the following tenor: '
"Your Majesty, biethrcn and
gentlcmeu: I think wo may congia
tulatc ourselves on the successful
accomplishment of Mr. Strong's
work in painting an excellent por
trait of Mr. Justice Robertson.
There arc now none before me who
practiced at the Bar when Mr. ltob
crtson sat on the Bench. There are
five native Hawaiians still living,
and the two Hitchcocks, S. L. Aus
tin, II. A. Wiileniann and W. C.
Jones still living, but of these only
one is in active practice. Judge Rob
ertson came amongst us early in the
'10's, aud that in 1852 he was call
ed to the Bar. At that time the
Supreme Court -was not organized,
but in its place was what was called
the Superior Court. Afterwards
when the Supreme Court was organ
ized under Chief-Justice Lee, ho
was called to the position of First
Associate Justice and Vice-Chancellor
on 10th January, 1853. lie
held this position till his death on
March 12th, 1807, having had the
longest tenure of ollicc of any other
judge except Judge Allen. Before
taking his scat on the Bench he had
occupied a somewhat prominent posi
tion in politics, having been elected
ti) the Legislature several times. His
services to the country on the Laud
Commission were invaluable, and the
experience, thus gained, served
him in good stead when he became
judge. He compiled the first volume
of Hawaiian Reports, which I am
.sure every member of the Bar here
considers as the most valuable,
though the smallest. He always did
more than his share of the work al
lotted to tho Bench.- His success
shows what attends faithful, labori
ous and patient industry. lie had
a fund of good, Scotch common
sense. It may be a matter of con
gratulation to Your Majesty that tho
artist is a Hawaiian born, and this
is the first portrait of ti Hawaiian
judge painted by a Hawaiian artist.
I know not what Your Majesty's
views aro in regard to the halls of
the Palace, but it seems to me that
this room is the place for a National
Picture Gallery, where the portraits
of the great and famous chiefs,
chieftains, counsellors and states
men of Hawaii may be hung. I have
to thank those gentlemen who aided
in the production of this memorial
for their generosity. I have only to
add that the Chief Clerk, Mr. Bar
nurd, and the Marshal, Mr. Parke,
both served under Mr. Robertson' in
their present positions."
The Court then adjourned till 10
a. Ji. this morning.
A Hawaiian 'woman is now on
board tho Madras, Inning returned
from China with her husband. Two
more are in the Quarantine Station,
who came on tho Coptic. One of
them had. hardly set foot on tho

deserted by her husband who left her

ANOTHEUINTEtlVIEW WITH THE
We asked the Auditor-General, on
Saturday if lie noticed that the
Press intimated a desire to see his
rcpoil. "Yes, thai is all right, n
ivpoit should have been made long
ago. You remember 1 told you bc
foic that I was not Minister of
I'inntiuc. You Mill observe that it i?
the Minister of Finance who is re
quired by law to make such lcport
and transmit the same to tho Auditor-General."
What is the reason that the report
docs not come out? "In the first
place, the Registrar of Public Ac
counts has more uoik to do under
the 'audit act' than ever before,
and a change in the office put mat
ters back a little for a time. The
fact is the Registrar of Public Ac
counts is about the hardest-worked
man in the Government service to
day. However, the report, and a
very full one, loo, is all ready to
publish. I have done a little toward
getting it up myself."
A little further conversation re
vealed that it will show a compara
tive, statement of receipts for tho last
two years, and expenditures in de
tail for the past year.

"Witr.x the alarm came ou Friday
afternoon that there was an cmcute
at the Immigration Depot at Kak.i

once wanted, every man on duty in
the streets had to he taken to make
up the number, and Honolulu was
left perfectly unprotected for a few
hours. This shows what we have
over and over again stated, the in
adequacy of our Police protection.
Where is that commission and what

Inside is news from Canton and San

Oxn of tho Hawaiian women who

visited the islands once. Her husband
is now dead. Sho brings with her a
child of pure Chincso blood belong-,

that Chinese custom always gives,
where there are two or more wives,
tho custody and possession of all
the children to the wjfc longest
