End Of Useful Career
Thk late Henry 1'. Baldwin has
left a record in these islands, the
luster of which can never be dim
med. s a man of the highest
Christian character, sturdy mental
and moral attainments, and an in
domitable energy, he h-ts lived a
life full of accomplishment in all
his social political and business re
lations one whose influence h a s
been for many years, and will ever
continue to be. far reaching an
influence that will always tend to
strengthen and uplift the commu
nities where it has been felt.
In his family, Mr. Baldwin ha
brought up aided by the inspiring
devotion of his loyal wife-their six
children to occupy the highest
places in the respect and love of the
communities in which they dwell.
As a business man, he has been
identified with the development of
one of the largest sugar plantations
of the world. His tireless energy
has been responsible for the promo-!
tion and success or many o t li e r
undertakings calling for the high
est form of ability and devotion.
At the time of his death he could
not be called old, yet the accom
plishments of his life w e r e far
greater than can be obtained in the
ordinary full span of a man's life,
and his industry and foresight has
planned so well for the future,
that his sons are already carrying on
his life work with the same energy
and success that characterized his
own efforts, and he had the satis
faction, in leaving the work in their
hands, of knowing that it would be
carried on as well, if not even more
successfully, than he himself had
been able to attend to it, a n d he
died with no fear of any disastrous
consequences resulting from the
cessation of his own watchful care
Mr. Baldwin's death leaves a
void in the Territory that can never
be entirely filled, but his example
and character will continue to be
felt as an influence for good as long
as the nation lasts.

At a session of the Land Com
mission in the course of which

tJ t the .utions are not taking
an interest in homesteaders in good
faith the Commissioners apparently
settled the Kapaa land question
that has been pending for years.
The Commission adopted the re-!
port of its committee, consisting of
W. A. Kinney and Alfred Carter,
a sole amendment being made to
the last ciause referring to the water
rights to the seven hundred and
fifty acres, the provision that the
Government have the power to step
in and claim the water being strick
en out. The whole homesteading
plan is turned over to Fairchild
with the Territory sitting in judge
ment. He is to be given a free
hand, according to the policy that
is incorporated in the report. '
The plan approved by the Com- j
mission is a substitute for the one
recommended by the Governor for
a lease covering 1590 acres of Ka-!
paa lands for a period of fifteen
years with an upset price of $7oou
subject to homestead withdrawals.
Those present at the meeting of
commissioners were Alfred Carter,
chairman of the Land Commission,'
and members W. A. Kinney,
Richard Trent and Samuel Dwight.

pating in the discussion. Acting;
