HON. SAMUEL M--DAM0N
'Mr. Damon, the principal partner in the firm of Bishop & Co., hat
been with the firm since September 1, 1870, As a powerful influence in
shaping the financial, industrial, and commercial, practise and ideals, of
Hawaii he has been second only to Charles R. Bishop, who founded the
banking house. Mr. Damon not only successfully conducted the affairs of
Bishop & Co. through the many troublesome times through which Hawaii
has passed, but as Minister of Finance under the Republic of Hawaii he
established the public finance of the then independent government on
lines of strength that had much to do with the government's ability to
maintain itself against most bitter attacks. When, after annexation to
the United States, Mr. Damon withdrew from public office, he left the
Public Treasury of the Islands with a surplus of a million dollars.
Illshop bought tho Interest of Mr.
Ilalston and continued ns tho solo
