This mornini? tho sad and
pool od news of Iho death of
than Austin was ciioulated.
Austin died at 7:30 o'clock this morn
ing, after a lingering illness of eight
weeks. Fears of a fatal result which
wore harbored a week or two ago
woie nearly dispelled latterly, as
the pationt'had shown signs of im
proving and it was intimated ho ex
pected soon to bo at his ollico again,
lie had removed to "Waikiki for the
benefit of tho more bracing ocean
atmosphere there, but death from a
general failure of the vital poworsit
seems could not bo averted.
Tho lamented gentleman was just
a month over (5!1 years of ago, having
been born at Saratoga Springs, N.
Y., Nov. 7th, 18251. lie was married
to Nancy L. Guenthor of Buffalo, N.
Y., in 1851, and came here, accom
panied by his wife, in J877. Ho
1'ought on the Union side in tho war
of secession, distinguishing himself
by heroic deeds and bravery. In
tho last battle ho fought so well and
hard that ho tired himself out and
was taken f 10111 the field on a
stretcher to his homo in Frederick
City. At that time ho was in com
mand of a brigade. Ho loft tho
army with tho commission of Liou-tenant-Colonel
of tho sovonty-oighth
New York. Col. Austin was a do
voted meinbor of tho Grand Army
of tho .Republic, and those who
have attended tho camp i'uos of
Geo W. do Loui? Post, hero, will
over remember his relation, in his
turn, of stirring incidents of tho
camp and field. At tho last 0110,
hold at Mr. .1. N. Wright's place, ho
told in graphic languago the story
of tho greatest act of heroism ho
had witnessed in tho wholo war.
The Colonel wore tho G. A. R. but
ton, saying ho desired to wear no
otlier. Ho was, howovor, high in
Masonry, being a member of Hiram
Lodge, 'No. 103, F. & A. M., Buffalo,
N. Y.. also a Knight Templar and a
Royal Arch Mason.
The lato Mr. Austin lived in Hilo
some time before coining to sojourn
permanently in Honolulu. Ho was
admitted to tho Hawaiian bar on ex
amination, September 2, 1881. In
New York he stood eminent as a
patent lawyer, and at his death was
Commissioner of Patents for this
kingdom. After the Eeform revolu
tion of 1887, in which Col. Austin
had taken an activo part, ho accept
ed with full public confidence the
important office of Registrarof Con
veyances. This ollico ho resigned to
become Minister of Foreign Affairs
on December 28, 1887, instead of
Godfrey Brown, resigned. Ho re
mained in tho Reform Ministry until
its resignation on Juno 17, 1890.
Upon retiring from public lifo ho
open a law ollico again, but of lato
has been manager and treasurer of
the Hawaiian Electrical Works, in
which ho has been assisted by his
son-in-law, Mr. E. Oscar White. Ho
seemed to find oloctric science very
congenial, and, when taken down by
his last illness, was deeply engrossed
in projects for tho expansion of tho.
company s business.
Mis. Austin pieceded her husband
to the grave in this city four years
ago. His brother, Benjamin Halo
Austin, was a Justice of the Supremo
Court from November 7, 1881, till
OUR HISTORICAL SOCIETY.
Addross of Mr. Jos, S. Emorson, V.
P., at tho Annual Mooting, Doc.
Tho Hawaiian Historical Society
organized on tho 11th of January of
tho present year meets to-night, not
10 ceieuraious nrsi anniversary, uiu,
volves upon me to weicomo tlio
members and friends of tho society,
and to offer a fow remarks suitable
to tho occasion. Tho object of this
society, as expressed in its Constitu
tion, is "tho collection, study, and
utilization of all material illustrat
ing the Ethnology, Arolueology and
History oT the flawaiian Islands."
We aie therefore not committed to
nnv political faith, or ecclesiastical
creed, or tho advancement of any
one of tho several nationalities
which togother form tho Hawaiian
Kingdom. Wo now seek, and shall
contmuo to seek, exact historic
truth, and shall cordially wolcomo
it from whatever source it inaj'
reach us. Tho field before us is ex
tremely rich. Tho hnology and
arclucology of this country are en
gaging tho earnest studj' of scholars
in other lands, and thoj' rightby
claim tho pationt consideration of
our own antiquarian students. Tho
strictly historical period of our
country is somewhat more limited
than tho ethnological and arclweol-
lo tho sorios of "Papors of U10 Hn

which havo already been published
in pamphlet form.

Tho Librarian's Report speaks for
itself, and wo may congratulate our
selves on having seemed a man who
brimrs to his task tho zeal of an
enthusiast and the skill of an export,
and who for the love of tho work
still continues his invaluable services
as our librarian. Wore it not for tho
calamity referred t o in tho Librarian's
Report, our brief oxporionoo as a
societv would havo boon one of con
tinuous prosperity. The damage
done to our Library by water, in the
event referred to, has never been
fully repaired, and wo still await tho
liberality of sonio as yot unknown
benefactor who shall earn for him
self tho lasting gratitude of tho
Society by assisting us in our time
of greatest need.
A change has come over tho spirit
of thoir dreams. Reps. Ash ford and
Wilcox in strong speeches Monday
advocated increases in the amount
proposed to bo appropriated for tho
Police of Oaliu on tho grounds that
the low suin asked for would neces
sitate reductions which would make
tho force inefficient, and also render
the men kept on linblo to succumb
to corrupt tomptations. Tlioso aro
sound and sensible views and wo
congratulate tho honorable mem
bers on having sunk thoir personal
grievances and advocated what they
thought to bo for the good of the

tho Advortisor editorially this morn

lapses into printing tho truth, but it
generally docs so, as in this caso,
with a sneer or a slur at tho same
time. It must havo cost tlio gang
a mighty effort to admit that the ad
ministration of government hero is
clean and honest at nil, no matter
whothor compared with othor coun
tries or not. Wo trust that, having
made tho first stop, our neighbor will
continuo in tho path of rectitude
and leave off its course of blinging
lies editorially and roportorially to
gratify personal or political ends.
