Albert Francis Judd, Chief Justlco of
tho Supreme Court of Hawaii, died yes
terday evening at 7:30 o'clock, at tho
homestead established by his lato
father In Nuuanu avenue. Tho event
had been deemed Inevitable as a matter
of hours for n week provlous. Chief
Justlco Judd began to fall In health
last summer, or a few months after his
completion of a quarter of a century on
tho bench of Hawaii. With Mrs. Judd
ho went to tho Mnlnland In September,
traveling to tho Atlantic coast and
seeking recuperation In tho quiet Inter
ior of Now York State. No Improve
ment resulted, however, nnd tho Chief
Justlco last month camo homo to die.
Tho departed Jurist was a son of tho
lato Dr. Gcrrlt P. Judd, who arrived
with the second band of American mitt
Bionarlcs in 1828, nnd took a prominent
part In grafting constitutionalism on
the Hawaiian monarchical system. Al
bert Francis Judd was born January
7, 1S3S. Ho received his enrly educa
tion in the Hoynl school and, under
Rev. E. a. Dcckwlth nnd the lato Ilev.
Daniel Dolo successively, took his
academic course In Oahu college From

whose law school ho graduated In 18(iS,

uiur in iiiucncii umi r-urupu iiuur, lie .
met Agnes, daughter of Kov. Jnmcs I',
Uoyd of Geneva, N. Y., and brought
her homo as his brldo.
King Lunnlllo appointed Mr. Judd
his Attorney General In 1873. Ho was
mado Second Assoclato Justlco of tho
Supremo Court on February 18, 1874,
zy King Kalakaua, was promoted to
bo First Associate Justlco on February
1, 1877, and to bo Chief Justlco on No
vember B, 1881. It was his strong de
sire, after nnncxntlon, to llvo to be tho
first Chief Justlco of tho Territory cf
Hawaii. As ho said, he did not con
sider his llfo wor kqulto accomplished.
Mr. Judd wns a "mlslsonary" In tho
true senso of tho term, as much ns one
could bo out of pulpit functions. Ho
was ono of tho pillars of tho old Fort
street church, tho old missionary sanc
tuary for foreigners, until It amalga
mated with tho lato Father Damon's
Bethel to form tho Central Union
church. Besides being an office-bearer
in theso churches ho wns slnco 1883
president of tho Hawaiian noard of
Tho lato Chief Justice always took a
keen Interest in public attalrs. He
held n strong Influence over tho natlvo
magistracy, whoso nntural unfaralllar
lty with Anglo-Saxon Jurisprudence
mado a commanding mind over them a
necessity. As n man Mr. Judd was
genial, jiijd unostentatious, Intensely
atfectfonnto In family relations, a
pleasant and hospitable host In society.
Many who could not sea eye to cyo
with him in matters of private opinion
will yet revero his memory as that of
a sincero friend.
Chief Justice Judd leaves, besides a
devoted wife, six sons and two daugh
ters, viz.: Agnes B. Judd, Albert F.
Judd Jr., James R. Judd, Henry Judd,
at present attending Yale collcgo in the
Junior class, Charles Sheldon Judd,
Gcrrlt P. Judd, Lawrence McCully Judd
and Sophie Boyd Judd. The lato C.

In a most stubbornly fought tennis
match on the Pacific Tennis Club
courts Saturday afternoon, F. C. Ath

Klston, last year's champion and tho
reprcscntntlvo of tho B. T. C. Athcr
ton knew bo had a hard man to beat.
Never for one moment did ho cease his
steady playing. Elston tried his beat
to tiro him by plays all over the court
but Athorton's racket was always in
the right placo. Tho match proved one
of the best that has over been wit-,
ncssed In Honolulu. Tho score was
7-5, G-4, G-2.
Tho match between Mis. John Wa
tcrhouse, this year's runner-up, nnd
Miss Mny Hart, last year's champion,
proved as interesting as tho foregoing
match. Tho first two sets proved con
clusively tho strength of tho players.
Unfortunately, Mrs. Waterhouse's
strength did not hold out or tho match
would havo been still more Interesting.
In addition to this, sbo was handi
capped by n blister on ono of the
Angers of her right hand which bother
ed her considerably. Tho scoro was
3-6, G-2, 7-5 and G-l In Miss Hart's fa

The "first view' 'of tho Kllohaim Art

nnd invited guests of tho artists. Tho
exhibition Is a creditable ono nnd somo
think tho best yet uttnlncd by the

Howard Hitchcock is ono of tho chief
factors of success as In tho past. His
work Is suggestive, clover and sale
able. Thcro are two volcano pictures

Mrs. Gertrudo O'Brien Is a new ex
hibitor in Honolulu and her work has,
besides much genulno merit, a very
pleasing foreign flavor; her touch la
delicate and artistic and her subjecti
nro always well chosen. Her portrait
of a Lady is certainly n very clover
piece of work; but thcro nro somo no
doubt who will Insist thnt It is not so
meritorious as her Marchand do Mon

study of a bit of Waikiki duck pond

group of pictures, two of which will
linger In the memories of nil who see

nnd appreciated. Her (lower scenes are
especially well handled and n dainty
little picture, From the Market, already

Mrs. Marshall well sustains her former
standard of excellence In her present

as a wnoio mis year,
