DEATH OF HON. S. G. WILDER.
The Honorable Samuel Gardner
Wilder passed quietly away at 7:15
o'clock this morning. He had been
sick for a little over a month, but
not until a few days ago was his
case considered hopeless.
The deceased was horn in Leo
minster, Massachusetts, on tho 0th
of June, 1831. In 1844 the family
with thousands of others emigrated
to what was then the far West
Illinois. There they settled, but
Samuel at this early age developed
traits that in after life bectine con
spicuous, and led him to fame and
prominence in business. The mon
otonous routine of a life on a farm
was repugnant to his piogiesMvc
nature. Consequently he slatted as
soon as he was able, which was in
1852, for California, across the great
Arriving in California the excite
, mentand hustle of life in a new
countiy was for a time all that lie
di hired; hut of that he soon tiled,
and in 1S55 came to Honolulu on a
business venture. After staying a
short time lie returned to Califor
nia, and chattel td a ship to go to
the guano islands. He took tin
first cargo of guano from Baker's
Island to New York. This tiadejie
found congenial to his tastes (as it
smacked of adventurc)and remained
in it a little over two years.
Subsequently he came to the Is
lands and settled down to make a
home for himself. He first went
into cane culture in Makawao, Maui,
and continued in it until his planta
tion was destro3'ed by Ore. He then,
in company with Dr. Judd (his
father-in-law), st.uted a sugar plan
tation at Kualoa, which he kept
running with varied shecess until
1871. He then for the first time
identified himself with the intcr
island tiade, and was made agent of
tho old steamer Kilauea. This
agency he handled with marked
ability, and instead of tilts vessel
being an expense to Hie Govern
ment, she was with all her misfor
tune, paying her expenses and
leaving a small margin for profits.
About this time lie was called
upon to form a new Rlitiistrj', which
lie did, and was the Minister of In
terior and Piemier for about two
years, when a change came over the
Government and he was succeeded.
His incumbency in that ollice was
marked by extensive internal im
piovemenls, that were conceived
and executed in a masterly manner.
The inauguration ot the present
steam communication between the
islands, and the construction and
operation of the Marine Rrailway
were among some of the projects
that he engineered to n successful
issue. He also built a railroad
tluougli the distiict of Koliala
against the advice of many who
thought such a scheme only rfi'sure
way of sinking a fortune, and
against obstacles natural and other
wise that would have discouraged
a less energetic man.
While agent of the Kilauea and
manager of the lumber business of
Hon. Jas. I. Dowsett. ho made over
tures to Mr. Dowsett for the pur
chase of the business, and in Apnl,
1872, the tiansfer of the business
was made. This business he lias
carried on ever since, and developed
it from a small affair to its present
proportions. He has been closely
identified with the Government for
manyyeais. He was appointed a
Noble dining the reign of Lunalilo,
and held the position as well as
that of a Privy Councillor of
State until the adoption of the
new Constitution, that abolished
the appointed House. He then
went before the public as a
candidate for Noble for the distiict
of Kona, Oaliu, and was letuincd by
a large majority.
At the cxlianidiuary session of
the Lcgislatuio he was appointed
President, and at the icgular ses
sion was unanimously re-elected to
fill the chair. He performed this
duly to tlm satisfaction of nil, and
by his iinpaitial and just decisions
endeared himself to cvciy member
of the Assembly. None knew him
hut to love and respect him, and the
largo circle of employco3, who hnvo
felt his beneficent influence, testify
to ids generous and kindly spirit.
No one ever connected with theso
islands was more widely known,
or more largely esteemed for his
many sterling qualities than the
IKj leaves a wife and family and
a large elide of friends and uc
qunintnnccs to mourn tus loss.

and J. F. Bowler, for the payment
for work dune and material furnish
ed, recommending that the follow

that may lie obtained in tlio Courts,
or for any settlement that the Min
ister may effect.

Minister Ashford said ho should

on the table, as if it passed the
Government would be handicapped,
as no doubt a jury would tay, if the
cae was referred to one, that the
action of the Houe indicated that
the claim was well founded.
Ri-p. F. Brown said the policy of
tlio Government as expressed by the
Attorney-General was: We will get
ail the work done for the Govern
ment, and then pay for it if we are
Minister Thuiston asked, Are
we going to let a Cabinet Minister
spent all the money he wants at his
own sweet will? He contended Hint
the claim was neither legal or just.
The Legislattue should not pre
judge this matter, and thereto! c
thought the repoit should be laid on
Noble Smith saw no reason why
the repoit should not lie considered
now, and if adopted the amount be
inserted in tho Appropriation Bill.
Ho thought a discussion of the me
rits of the case could be better car
ried on now while it is fresh in 'the
memory of all, than at some future
time. Ho therefore moved to adopt
the report. The woik was done un
der Minister Aholo. If these par
ties brought suit against the Gov
ernment and iccovered judgment,
it would certainly be an injustice to
them to have to wait. He had some
personal feelings in legaid to some
tilings done a year ago, but these
mechanics did do the work, and did
it in good faith, and they should
have a settlement of their claims.
Noble Widcmnun asked if the mo
tion was seconded. The answer
was in the nlllrmative. He then
moved for an indefinite postpone
ment. Rep. Kinney said both of Mr. J.
F. Bowler claims were exceedingly
seedy, on their meiils, and Mr. R.
More & Co.'s claim is only blood
Noble Young asked the gentle
man to explain the meaning of tlio
tcims "seedy" and "blood money."
Rep. Kinney said that it was not
nccessaiy to go into any explana
tion. We thought to make out that
this work on the Palace walls was
done about the time of the revolu
tion, hut the tenders were issued in
November, 188G, and the contract
was awarded to J. F. Howler, and
he was to be paid $7,000 in two
years. The whole thing is rotten.
Ho did not believe that a jury could
be found that would gianttho claim,
but in case a judgment was got
there should bo funds to meet it. This
claim is going into Court and the
Government will not lose any tiling
h3' it, and he trusted they would
make the provision.
Noble Baldwin was not in favor
of this going on tho Appropiiation
Bill in any form. It seemed to him
that tlio very petition on the fnco of
it shows weakness. We arc assum
ing too much, that these claims are
going into Court. It is lime enough
for the Government to make pioi
sions for anything of this sort when
tho (.'out ts decide that we have got
Noble Widcmnun said ho would
like to ask whether this claim would
be any better now than at somo fu
tuietime. NoblcKmith snysheiscon
vcrsant will the whole matter. I am
not, nnd I dare say that two thirds
of this House arc in the same posi
tion, and should like to have time to
Minister Thurston thought the
committee had misrepresented the
matter in their repoit, and had
pluccil the government m a wrong
light. He would have to explain
something that the commiitee had
neglected to say anything about.
Woik was done on tho Palace Walk.
Mr. Howler knew that theie was no
money to pay for 11113' such work

paid in February, 1889. The Sup
erintendent of Public Works said
that the gnto on Richard street was
put in at a fair price, but tho other
two gates arc not so, as 83., 000 was
put in over and above the contract
price, becauso he (Mr. Bowler) took
tho risk when there was no money
in tho Tieastiry to pin-for his work,
so the pcoplo aro sinched $3,000,
if nothing more, and for work that
was utteily useless, and would not
have been done had this House been
asked about it nt first. The House
should not recognise this claim in
any way, and should not give the
courts a chance to adjudicate the
matter. In regard to the other
claim of Mr. Bowler's, altering tho
gas house, was not in any way con
nected with tiie government. It is
the King's private property nnd he
can do with it as he sees fit, but be
cause the Minister of the Interior
said that the government would pay
for any repairs or alteration, it is
no reason that the present Ministr3f
should be bound by that promise.
Mr. Mbrc's claim had never been
presented to tho department, so he
knew nothing about it.
Noble Widemaun said according
to rule 45 of the House, the com
mittee had not done their duty, in
not slating the facts in their report,
and in consequence would move to
refer the report back to them.
Minister Thurston rose to a point
of order, and said that the report
was not in order and could not be
discussed. The President sustained
Noble Smith appealed from the
1 tilings of the chair. If this ruling
is sustained he would be surprised.
Rep. Kinney thought the House
was in a mood to sustain the ruling
of the President, as it would be an
easy w a' to sit on Mr. Smith, and
one or two others, dr upon the Judi
cial yX'onnnittee. They (the com
mittee) has stated all that was
ituccssarj'. As a body of lawyers
thej' think that he (Bowler) lias a
legal claim whether it is a just one
or not. Our judgment thnt this
claim is a legal one.is based on facts
and the petition, and he could not
sec whcie the report conld be in
piocd. Rep. C. Brown could not agree
witli the Picsidcnt in this ruling.
This was the first time dining the
session that he could not do so. It
was not the dut3r of the committee
to pass upon any point of law, but
simply to report on facts, and in
this case they recommend only that
cei tain suras of money bo inserted
in tho Appropriation Bill to cover
any judgement that might be had
in this case, and the report com
plies with tho rule of the House
governing the same.
Noble Wideraann said an hour
and a half had been wasted in a
useless debate, just because one
member of this House forced the
consideration of this matter on the
House at this time. He therefore
moved the previous question. The
ruling of the chair was sustained by
a vote of 25 to 4.
Rep. F. Brown reported from the
committee to whom was referred
the bill to regulate the sale of malt
liquor, recommending that the bill
pass with such amendments as the
Noblo Smith rose to a point of
older, stating that tho report was
not in conformity with rule 45 of
the House. The President ruled
the lcportiin order. Laid on the
tabic until the repoit from the re
mainder of the committee.
Noble Widemaun said he had a
report to made, from the Committee
on Double Taxation on soveral peti
tions asking for a refund of money
paid twice in taxes, recommending
a sulllcicut sum being insetted in
the Appropriation Bill to pay these
demands The report was received
and laid on the table to be consider

Noblo Townsend reported pi ogress

Minister Austin reported that he

Noblo Widemaun offered a resolu

Rep. C. Brown supported the mo

Government about$ 5,000 or 80,000
dollars a year, 77,000 dollars had
been appropriated for the support
