John Henry Paly, ono of Ho
nolulu's oldest aud b$st citizens,
died a few minutes boforo 12
o'clock noon today, tjlo was in
the fifty seventh yoar of his age,
having been born in Honolulu on
September 8, 1840. His last ill
neBS wus long in tho oxtremo and
weary, it being about four years
sinco ho was compelled to aban
don his daily walks in tho busi
ness community. Tho funeral
will take plncefrom the residence,
Nuuanu nveuuo, to Nuimiiu
cemetery, at 4 o'clock tomorrow
afternoon, Rov. D. P. Uirnio, pn9
tor of Central Union church, con
ducting tho services.
John H. Paty was pro eminent
ly entitled to tho designation
"kamaaiua," haviug boon a born
citizen of Honolulu. At th samo
timo, by both pnroutage nd mar
riage,ho was an American of the
Americans, whoso patriotic regard
for tho land of his ancestors was
always, jn tho years of his
fatrongth, drawn upon by his com
patriots with full confidence, for
the celebration of national anni
versaries or for tho promotion of
charitablo enterprises. Ho wns
the son of Captain John Paty, a
prominent voyager of tho Pacific,
who, coming to Honolulu first in
1835, mado no loss than 185 trips
across tho Pacific up to his death
in 18G8. Upon the completion
of his hundredth voyage, ho was
prosented by his admiring fellow
citizons with a thvj. Hosideheing
master of the vessels in which
thrso voyages woro made, ho was
in most cases oithor their solo or
part ownor. Notwithstanding so
active a career, however, Captain
Paty left no fortune to his son,
tho subject of this sketch, who
was accordingly put upon his
own resources for making a namo
aud a placo for himsolf in this
Occasionally John H. took a
trip in his father's vessel to China
and San Francisco. One of those,
taken to San Francisco beforo ho
was nine years of ago, entitlod
him to momborship intlie Society
of California Pioneers, and ho
availed himself of the privilogo
and distinction. Ho was educated
partly in tho Royal School of Ho
nolulu instituted for tho honofit
of youug Hawaiian royalty and
for tho rent in San Francisco.
When ho was sixteon years of ago,
John H. Paty entored on a mer
cantile career, for three years
thereafter being ongnged in tho
moiohandise, real estato and auc
Ho ontorcd the sorvico of Bishop
& Co., bankers, in August, 1859,
and was succosaivoly promoted to
bo head bookkeeper and assistant
cashier, finally, iu 1875, being ad
mittod to partnership in that insti
tution. Mr. Paty was ovor active in
schemes for advancing the pros
perity of his native country. Be
sides being prominout in tho
sugar industry in its rising days,
he was tho principal owner of tho'
largo liawauoa caltlo ranch on
this island of Oahu. Ho was
ono of tho promoters of the Oahu
Railway ife Land Company, whoso
operations havo greatly benefited
Oahu directly and indirootly, be
ing president of tho corporation
up to tho timo of his death. Other
business concerns with which he
was identified aro tho Honolulu
Board of Underwriters, tho local
board of tho Hawaiian Tramways
Company, Ltd., an its chairman,
and tho Plantors' Labor nnd Sup
In 8omipublio and benevolont
institutions of which ho was a
moving spirit, Mr. Paty was
treasurer or the Board of Trustees
of tho Queen's Hospital, treasurer
of tho Board of Trustees of tho
Suilore' Homo, chairmau of tho
Board of Trustees of Hawaiian
Lodge, F. Si A. M., aud a member
of tho Amorican Relief Fund. He
was also a member of tho consular
corps, as Consul for tho Nether
lauds. Mr. Paty iu 1871 married Miss
Bollos, an Amorican lady but like
himself of Hawaiian birth, her
tathoi haviug been for nearly half
a century a prominent morohant
of Honolulu. Mrs. Paty, besides
being distinguished for amiable
qualities and good works, is notu
bio as ono of the leading sweet
siugors of Honolulu. Hor voicn
for mauy years enriched tho scr
vicb of praiso in old Fort street
church, now merged in Central
Union churchy besides being
always rosponsivo in aiding ama
teur ontertaiuments for sweet
charity. Indeed, until hor hus
band's docliuing health preoccu
pied hor attention abovo all things
olso,Mrs. Paty has cheorfully lent
hor fiuo vocal powers to special
occasions of the kinds mentioned.
Five daughters woro born to tho
esteemed couple, ono of whom is
married to Mr. J. J. Egan, mer
chant, of this city, nnothur to Mr.
A. V. Vau Valkenborg of Maui,
aud a third to Mr. E. A. Mott
Smith. sou of tho lately departed
Btaiosmnu, J. Molt Smith. A son
died iu iufaucy.
Tho late Mr. Paty was ono of
those "old timers" with whom it
was a plcnsuro to have converse.
Ho was approaehablo always,
courteous and gonial ono might
say to a fault. Members of tho
press fouud him never otherwise
than obliging in rendering them
all tho information iu his power
upon any subject tlioy woro in
vestigating. From his connection
with both business and bono
volent ontorprises, as previously
shown, and his largo aud cloar
fund of local reminiscences, he
had ofton to bo sought by the
nows gathoror. Many a timo, in
tho writor's acquaintauco with
him for more than a dozen years,
did Mr. Paty even go out of 1 it
way to serve the local press in its
catoring to the publio appotito for
Although his poor health iu
tho past few years had kept him
out of publio view, Mx. Paty was
still thought of as a prominent
aud ueoful mombor of tho com
munity. Up till his death his
namo appeared in a publio notico
regarding tho affairs of tho
Queon's Hospital. Now that ho
is gono from our sight, a groat

Tho Advortisor of this morning
Btates that tho contract for build
ing tho Central Firo Station wan
awarded to Mr. Arthur Harrison
at his bid of 27,330. Several
bids nearly S2000 less than tnut
woro ontiroly ignored by tho Min
istor of tho Interior, tho grouutt
given being that tho award wbb
based upon tho quality of stone 'to
Tho reason givon is spurious.
Whilo tho Ministorof tho Interior
reserves tho right to roject tho
lowest' or any bid ho cannot
screen himself from an accuFntion
of mnlfoasauco in offico by uuy
such paltry and worthloss oxcuso.
Tho stono was not tostod anil
that offorod by contractors oil cr
than Mr. Arthur Hnrrison is of
as good quality if not bottor ILiiu
that upou which tho award was
made. Is this action of tho Min
ister honest? Is it consistent with
his official duties ? Havo tho poli
tical autocrats of othor bidders
auythiug to do with this award
which robs tho taxpayor of
2000? Such action by tho
Government gives thorn n
lovely recommendation for tio
taxpayor to pcrpotuato tho power
