tontlnuous record ot brilliant
achievement. Ho was' born In

nnd ns a noted and worthy
son of Hawaii his career will re
main ample refutation of the Idea
that climate or environment of tho

of tho American.
It Is undoubtedly true that there
Is no man In Hawaii . today whoso

up to tho time ho received the

on tho shoulders of n man with real

doubt have lived longer. Overwork
brought nbout his physical down

make-up. His only fnlluro was
when, tome years ago, ho attempted
to icllre lo n II fo of enso and was
unable to do so.
With his great wealth distributed

exercised n tremendous power In this

paused tho last portals. Ills Indus
