THE LATE MR. H. L.8HELD0N.
The late H. L. Sheldon was born
August 18, 1824, at Salem, Massa
chusetts, and was brought up to the
printing trade. He came to these
islands, a young man of twenty-two,
in 1846. With the exception of a
few months absence in California
during the early days of gold min
ing in that State, he resided here
continuously for thirty-seven years.
Almost from the time of his first
arrival till the day of his death, he
was connected, in some literary ca
pacity, with one or other newspapers
of the place. He was sometime
editor of the old Polynesian, and
subsequently acted in the same ca
pacity for the Hawaiian Government
Gazette. Later still, he edited the
J?. G. Advertiser, for Messrs. Black
& Auld. For a period of two or
three years he was both proprietor
and editor of the last named paper,
and when it was re-purchased by Mr.
Black, Mr. Sheldon continued the
editing. He was also one of the
early writers for the Saturday Press,
and continued to the time of his
death to furnish that paper with in
teresting "reminiscences." When
this little paper the Daily Bulle
tin "took up its position, modestly
but confidently, as a regular public
journal," on the 24th of April, 1882,
H. L. Sheldon was its editor, and re
mained so until the end of July fol
lowing. Mr. Sheldon was -gifted with all
the necessary qualifications of a pop
ular and successful journalist. In
ad'dition to a wide range of general
information, he posessed a clear
head, and a sound judgment. He
usually took a calm, dispassionate,
.broad view of all public questions.
There was nothing sensational or
striking in his style of writing, but
his thoughts were always expressed
in simple, concise, lucid, every-day
English. An intimate and thorough
knowledge of the language, laws and
history of this country gave him a
, 'decided advantage over many, if not
all, contemporaneous local news
Shortly after resigning the editor
ship of the Bulletin, Mr. Sheldon
went to reside at Kohala, Hawaii,
for the purpose of practicing law.
There he died on the 14th instant,
and was brought to Honolulu, and
interred in Nuuanu cemetery on the
. 18th. He leaves a family of four
sons and one daughter to lament his
departure. Mrs. Sheldon, a truly
good woman, having gone before,
about three years ago.
On Monday evening at tho Y. M.
C. A., Mr. A. Hoffnung lectured,
on-behalf of tho Honolulu Library,
And Reading Boom Association, on
the life and works of Tom Hood,
and was introduced to his audience
by Mr. S. B. Dole.
Tho lecturer prefaced hiB remarks
by saying that, six or seven years
ago, ho was elected president of a
literary institute in Liverpool, and
that he then wrote a lecture on Tom
Hood. He had declined at tho
time to have it published, partly
because he was tender of criticism,
and ho thought this was a crude
if production, and partly because ho
felt that uo uiu not acservo tne
dignity consequent upon its publi
cation. Ho had never looked at it
since, but he felt now that it was
safer to trust to his original manu
script than to his memory. The
lecturer then stated that ho consi
dered poetry as the music of litera
ture, that Jt was to language the
same as odor is to tho violet and the
rose. He proceeded to give an
account of the life of Tom Hood
who was born on 28 rd May, 1799.
,IIJs father had been a bookseller,
and his trade had evidently influ-
leneed the inclination of his children.
yMr, Hoffnung recounted tho private
'life of his subject and related how
le suffered from consumption in a
paost painful stage, which had lasted
fiov bo long a time, and so severely,
fthat It was a wonder the poet had
not given way sooner than he did.
his lifetime he had a band to
goad struggle with straightened (
means. Ho referred to Tom Hood's
wifo as being a woman of a type not
often mot with ; she encouraged her
husband in all his works criticirod
them, and pointed out, what seemed
to her, his faults. He had frequent
ly made her the object of his jokes,
and stood by while he saw them
perfected. Like many literary men,
Tom Hood had been extravagant
and wasteful, but his wifo had
always willingly worked hard and
savingly. Tho lecturer referred to
tho inanj numerous writings of his

At tho conclusion of the lecture,
a hearty vote of thanks was accorded
to Mr. Hoffnung for his kindness in
providing such an interesting account
of the life and doings of one of
