CHIEF JUSTICE JUDD DEAD
Passed Away Peacefully
THE END WAS EXPECTED
His Bedside Surrounded by all Members
of His Family Excepting
(From Monday's Dally.)
Albert F. .Tudd, Chief Justice of Ha
wall, died last evening at 7:30 o'clock,
.it his residence on Nuuanu street after
an Illness lasting many months. His
death was hourly expected during tho
day, and Dr. Wood, tho attending phy.
slclun, did not believe Jie would tide
over the afternoon. He sank Into tin
consciousness then, and whon darkness
en mo ho passed peacefully to the other
world. Tho Immediate family and relatives,
togetner with a few Intimate
friends of the late Chief Justice, were
present at his bedside during the laat
moments. Dr. Wood, who had been
with tho dying Jurist almost constantly
up to a Into hour in tho afternoon, was
absent when tho end came.
The news spread fast and was known
In almost every household In Honolulu
within an hour. Many messages of
condolence wero sent to tho widow and
her sons and daughters, and a lnrgc
number of friends called In person to
extend tholr sympathy and services
The Chief Justice's health began to
fall last summer and he was compelled
to tako a vacation from his labors on
the bench and was finally advised by
his physician to seek rest and a change
on the Mainland whence ho sailed in
company with Mrs. Judd In September
last. Tho trip extended to tho Atlantic
ocean, and tho Interior of New York
state, was sought with a view or get
ting as far as posslblo from the excite
ment of tho city or tho seashore, and
many months' wero thus passed.
The return to Honolulu was made
last month when the Chief Justice
came on his last voyage in tho steam
ship Australia. His health was then
In a precarious condition and once
homo ho was never able to leave It.
When he died tho children wero in
Honolulu and at their fntner's bedside.
except is ui xaio college.
President Dolo could not be rcacaod
last night to ascertain whether the
Government offices would bo closed
but inasmuch as the funeral occurs
during tho afternoon, an ordor win
probably he issued from tho President
that tho Government should pay all
duo respect to the memory of one of its
most distinguished officials and supporters.
Tho flags on nil public build
ings, as well as privato buildings, will
bo during tho day. The
funeral will bo a public one and tli
ceremony will partako of all tho dig
nity usually accorded to a public man
holding a high position. Tho Govern
ment band will bo present to lead the
solemn funeral cortege to tho final
resting placo on tho hill. A special
guard of honor consisting of two officers
was sent to the residence last
evening by Marshal Brown.
As a result of their chief's death
tho Hawaiian Bar Association have
postponed their annual dinner which
was to have been given next Friday.
Tho executive commlttco of that budy
will probably meet on Tuesday and
make arrangoments for tho Associa
tion to pay personal tributes to tho
honored member who has gone from
their midst. Many of tho business
houses will close during tho funeral
hour and a general sign of respect
will bo observed throughout the city,
Albert F. Judd was born January 7,
1838, and was therefore a Uttlo uvor six
years of ago at tho timo of his
death. Ho commenced his cducntion
at Punahou College under tho Rev. R,
G. Beclcwlth, and also under Bev. Dan
iel Dole, tho father of President Dolo.
TJienco ho was sent to Yalo College
whore ho completed his academical as
well as his law course, graduating
therefrom in 1858, at the age of twenty,
Ho returned to Honolulu and began tho
practico of law. Ho travelled exton
slvoly before his raarrlago, and trav
erse Europe, finishing his education,
It was while on this tour that ho met
Miss Agnes, tho daughter of Bov. James
B. Boyd of Geneva, Now York. They
wero married In tho .United States and
came to Honolulu to resldo permanently.
During tho brief reign of
Mr. Judd, thon a prominent member
of tho Hawaiian Bar, waB appointed
Attorney-General of tho Kingdom In
1873, holding this position until tho
death of the King, when he again engaged
In tho private practico of his
profession. On Fobruary 18, 1874, the
appointment as Scco' Assoclato
of tne Supreme Bench was offered
to him and accepted. This position ho
held until bo became, in line of promotion,
tho First Associate Justico on
February 1, 1877. By tho death of the
lato Chief Juatlco Harris In 1881. ho
succeeded to tho Chief Justiceship on
November 5th or that year, a position
which he held until bts death.
During the whole period of his public
ccrvlce, his life has been singularly
free from tho trials and tribulations
which ordinarily beset men in public
office. Ho had some groat advantages
which enabled him to lulflll his duties
on the Bench with remarkable foresight,
possessing as he did a general
knowledge of conditions In Hawaii
which wero Invaluable. A knowledge
of Hawaiian law nnd of nil tho traditions
of old government stood him In
good stead, nnd thrso ho gained
from his father Dr. Gcrritt P. Judd, a
who was for a number or years tho
Minister or Flnnnco in tho early days
or tho monarchy. Tho latter being a
minister of the government, and the
Hcv. Richard Armstrong, being tho
Minister of Education, tholr children
wero the only white children who wero a
privileged to nttend what was then
called tho Royal School.
This was maintained at Knwalahao,
under tho control of Mr, nnd Mrs. S.
Cooko, the parents of Chas. M, Cooko.
By this oarly association Judgo Judd
acquired nn Intimate know.edgo of
Hawaiian customs nnd laws ns then
observed This aso tended to Increase
an Intimacy with the chlcTs and nn observation
of tho administration of gov
ernment which became of Immense
sorvlco to him in nrtor years.
Bov. Gorrltt P. Judd, father of Albert
F. Judd, arrived In 'Hawaii
THE LATE HON
ond band" of missionaries from Boston.
Dr. Judd was the most eminent
American in tho service of the early
government of tho Islands, and was, for
many years the leading momber of tho
monarchy's advisory committee.
Asldo from hU legal attainments
and Integrity, tho friends of tho late
Chief Justice treasuro tho fact that
upon the Uench ho always treated
every member of tho bar who appeared
before him with kindliness and
courtesy. Ho was a gentleman by
and Instinct nnd an absolutely
upright Judge. He believed Instinctively
in justice and the reign of right.
Ho was mado President of tho Hawaiian
Board or Missions In ltiS3 which
position ho held without a singlo
break and ror a great .many years was
a deacon nnd a member or tho standing
commlttco of Central Union Church.
When Mr. Judd first went upon tho
Bench In 1874, Honolulu was practically
occupied by a foreign naval force
which had been landed during the election
riot between tho adherents of
Queen Emtna and Kalakaua. Political
reeling among the Hawatlans ran bo
high In favor of Queen Emma 'hat It
took much time to bring nft'alrs hack
to a normal condition. Many rioters
were arrested as a result and Indicted.
Shortly after tho kingdom becamo settled
under the reign of Kalakaua, the
lattor arrogated to himself the right to
demand tho stamp duty ns a personal
requisite, and Justico Judd had to interpose.
Tho King demanded tho duty
on tho ground that tho Stamp Law provided
for the payment of tho stamp
money to himself. All the Justices
rendered opinions In tho matter and
tho affair was finally amicably adjusted
ed by Judgo Judd's influence. In tho
revolution of 1S87 when a change was
mado In the Constitution of Hawaii In
a manner not provided for in that im
portant document; thero wore many
who dlssontcd from the decision of tho
Court upon tho difficult question of the
personal veto power of the Kins, but
tho strong position taken by tho court
during tho revolution of 1889, happily
disposed of tho Issuo In a liberal way.
This decision met with gMrnl ap
Justice Judd went upon the Bencti
when ho was thirty-four years old, and
next to Judge Wilcox has occupied a
public ofilco for a longer porlod than
any other lawyer In tho Islands.
On tho evening of February 18th of
last year, the twenty-fifth anniversary
or tho appointment or tho Chief Jua
tlco to ofilco as a Justico or tho Su
premo Court was celebrated at tho Hawaiian
hotel by a complimentary dinner
given in his honor by tho Hawaiian

service In this roapoct has been quiet,
constant, laborious and gratultuous. It
has lasted through many years, and
has preserved this vestlgo of a
race from alien attack.
