Mr. Kamiu, speaking in Hawai ian, compared Knmehatneha the Great to George WTashIngton, stating that Kamehameha was to the people of Ha waii as Washington was to the people of ; the United States,", the "Father of his country,"- "first in war, first In peace, first in the hearts of his coun trymen. .

"Time will not permit me to tell all of the important "thing la the life of Kamenameha," the speaker said, ia substance, "so I will mention only a few of Lis greatest works . 5 , ; , Speaker Praises Kamehameha. j . fFirav of all, Kameharoehn was a very wise . eovereigh, and he showed this by the way In which he command ed his soldiers. During his conquests the first thing of importance to him was to take possession of the food sup plies of his enemies lie was constant ly striving to Wiethe hearU.of his soldiers to himself, and this he did" by extending justice to them, ; ; ' ; ''In case one of his'soldiers had com mitted a crime, e called air of his soldiers together not only to , deter mine the punisiment of the guilty one but as an opportunity for giving, ad vice to his men. If the crime-was a serious one he sent detectives into the homes fit his jejple to find out what the consensus of opinion -was as to the man's guilt or innocence. He took notes of the opinion of. the people by means of a leaf. He would cut a leaf Into- strips; On the right side he would tie as tcany knots as there were opin ions in favor qf the offender, and on the left side he would tie a knot for each opinion exiiressed against the accuse-1 one.. r V- Kvf-.;- ; "Af Ur the opinions had been gath ered by the detectives, Kamehameha would make his decision. If the most knots w ere on the right side; the man would go free; but if the left side had the greatest number, the man would be pufliEhed.'. " ' . v';- . The speaker pointed out that, lit the great war of the Iao valley on Maui, Kamehameha exhibited great military skill before he p arched hiff 'isoldlerl against the enemy.' - v ' ', "Was Military Expert. : i V ; . ' -V-') He had the outriggers taken from the cances in Xvhich the warriors had journeyed to the islandand then had the canoe burled In the sand. ; Then he warned his jnen not to return as V ere would be no means of escape for them from behind, and that the only thing ieft for them to da was to march ahead and giv battle to the enemy. -r Kamehameha aiso achieved honors as a brave man, the speaker said. He never gave in to any means through which his soldiers or followers might be discouraged. He was steadfast, de clared the speaker; he never allowed his opinions to be shifted here and there by , the" ideas .of others. ' If he made a mistakg he would immediately endeavor to rectify it. ' f :, ' X : . While Kamehameha-loved pleasure, said the speaker;,- he despised . the wasting of time on useless amuse ments. A larga part of his time was spent in planning, getting more -men for hia srniies sud wlr-ning Jhe best men of the islands to himself. . -u- During his address Rev. Mr. Kamau introduced a namber of ancient chants which impressed the l is audience. V : Mucn credit is due to those who ar ranged the celebration" as well as to -.those who participated in the parade and exercises at, tha statue.
