VOLUME 1. NUMBER 60.
OF THE. LATE "WILLIAM L. LEE.
The death of the Hon. William L. Lee, Chief Jus
tice of the Supreme Court, and Chancellor of the
Kingdom, though not unexpected, has spread an
unusual gloom over our community. His many ad
mirable qualities of mind and heart, so rarely com
bined in ono individual, had won for him the esteem i
and confidence of all classes, both among natives and ji services of this extraordinary man; but however ar
foreigners; while his eminent public services havejj duoua were the duties of his own particular depart-
rendered his death a heavy national calamity.
The universal sorrow everywhere manifested for his.
loss, the thousands who gathered to pay the last Bad"
tribute to his memory, the crowded churches where
hiis life, his services and his virtues were made the
theme of discourse, are evidences of the deep affec tion
with which he had inspired the people among whom
the best years of his life have been spent. In him tho
King has lost a faithful and judicious Counsellor, the
Bench a wise and upright Judge, the foreign com
munity a-warm and liberal friend, and the nation a
benefactor, whose best energies were devoted to its
welfare, and whose life was worn out by hisunrerait-
ting labors in its service. In the appropriate lan- j
guage of our cotemporary of the Polynesian, "where
ever the Sandwich Islands are known, Mr. Lee has
been heard of as a pillar of the State, nnd through
his efforts, rather than thone of any other individual,
and the honest tendency of his public acts, the gov-'
eminent has acquired a reputation and prestige
which give it a strength beyond its proportions.
In one word, on whatever there is of progress, and
whatever there is of order observable throughout the
length and breadth of this archipelago, it may be said
that more or less conspicuously the mark of Mr.
Lee's hand is seen.'
Mr. Lee was born at Sandy Hill, "Washington
County, in the State of New York, on the 25th of
February, 1821. At the age of thirteen ho entered
the Norwich University in the State of Vermont, where
he remained two years, at the end of which time he
left the institution and engaged in the business of a
civil engineer in the service of his native State. In
this profession he rose so rapidly that at the end of
only three years he left it, having already filled the
post of Resident Engineer. He next returned to Nor
wich University, where he graduated at the age of
twenty, taking the first honors. On leaving the Uni
versity, he received the appointment of Superin
tendent of the Military Academy at Portsmouth, Vir
ginia, in which position he remained one year. Having
at this time of his maturity decided upon adopting the
law as his profession, he entered the Law School at
Harvard University, where he remained till he had
completed the course of study under those eminent
jurists, Judge Story and Professor Greenleaf. It is
no small praise to say that he was honored with the
confidence and friendship of both these distinguished
TQtn. Judge Story furnished him with letters of
reference when he left the Law School, and with Prof.
Greenleaf he was in constant correspondence until
When Mr. Lee was about to tdtablish himsef as a
practitioner, he was attacked with a violent hemorrage
of the lungs, and his case was for some months con
sidered to be a hopeless one, but a naturally strong
constitution triumphed over the disease, and in the
year 1814 he was able to commence the practice of
law in the city of Troy, New York. Here he applied
himself to his profession with the unremitting indus
try which characterized him, until his labors brought
on a recurrence of pulmonary symptoms, which
warned him to seek a more genial climate. At this
time public attention was strongly directed towards
"the new Territory of Oregon, which was supposed to
offer unusual advantages to settlers, as well in the
salubrity of its climate as the fertility of its soil, and
its prospect of a speedy growth. Deciding then to cast
his fortunes in that young country, Mr. .Lee embarked
with a company of fourteen others on board the brig
Henry, bound for Columbia River by way of the
Sandwich Islands, and after a tempestuous voyage of
about eight months the vessel arrived at Honolulu on
the 12thof October, 1846, to the surprise of many
who had given her up as lost.
Mr. Lee had not entertained the most distant idea
of remaining at these Islands. The time of his ar
rival, however, and the long delay of the vessel here
caused by the extensive repairs which were found ne
cessary, seemed providential. It was a critical period
in the affairs of this young nation. The government
was engaged in a controversy with some of the foreign
residents, which had embroiled nearly the whole com
munity, and which menaced its very existence. The
bitter and angry feelings which had grown up among
the partisans on either side, had almost caused open
rupture, uenerai uiieuamcoo uu uj puiicu.
The course of Atty General Ricord, the only ofiicer of
the government of legal education and profession, was
ill-calculated to conciliate the contending parties, or
to inspire that confidence in the government which
was so necessary to its peace and prosperity. The
laws drawn up by him were ambiguous and compli
cated, and the tribunals of the realm were looked
upon by a large and intelligent class of the commu
nity, rather as instruments of oppression than sources
of redreBa'from injustice.
At this epotv, the advent of an upright, able, and
impartial judge, to whom all parties could look with
confidence, seemed the only event that could restore
order out of chaos, and save the country and the gov
ernment from utter confusion. But in those days of
isolation and almost non-intercourse with civilized
countries, this seemed too great a boon to expect. It
was at this period that Mr. Lee accidentally arrived
here, and subsequent events soon showed him to be
the very man for the emergency. It was a fortunate
day for the nation, when he accepted the post of Pre
siding J udge offered him by the late King. Mr. Lee
was not easily induced to change his design, and
though the King, thinking that the oath of allegiance,
which had been required of other government officers,
j might be objectionable, offered to confer on him Let
ters Patent of denization, by which he acquired all
the rights of an Hawaiian subject, without forfeiting
those of an American citizen, yet it was with reluc
tance that he consented to remain, in what then
doubtless seemed a narrow sphere of action, compared
with the mighty West. But from the day cf his ac
cepting office under this government until that of his
death, he has served it with a zeal, industry, ability
and success, of which history affords but few exam
ples. u iv s juipusstuiB, wuuiu me mnn9 oi a newspaper
article to do more than allude to some of the eminent
ment, and they were never neglected or slighted, yet,
whenever any of tho wheels of government were
stopped or impeded, his shoulder was ever ready for
the emergency, and never was it applied in vain. To
quote again from our cotemporary, "In undertaking
to reduce the J udiciary Department to order and put
our courts of law into a position to command respect,
i he succeeded well indeed; and the principal tribunal,
over which he presided, acquired such a name for
wisdom, combined with probity not to be questioned,
that parties often left their cases with the Court as
an umpire of their own choice."
As President of the Board of Commissioners, ho
performed a responsible and most arduous labor. As
one of the Commissioners charged with the duty of
framing a new Constitution, he prepared the original
draft; a task of no little magnitude, when we con
sider the incongruous elements to be united and
reconciled in its formation. The Penal Code and
many of the most important laws were drawn up by
him. As one of the Commissioners to prepare a new
Civil Code, he taxed his waning strength in his
labors with Judge Robertson on this work, which his
death has left unfinished. As Envoy Extraordinary
and Minister Plenipotentiary to Washington, he ne
gotiated a Treaty of Reciprocity, which, if ever con
firmed by the U. S. Senate, will confer great benefits
on this kingdom. For all these extra labors, arduous
as they were, to which he devoted the hours of day
and night which most men consider necessary for re
laxation and repose, and under which his own health
gave way, he steadily and repeatedly refused any ad
ditional compensation. The Privy Council and the
Legislature have in vain endeavored to force on him
some remuneration for his many voluntary and severe
labors; but his reply was that his salary as Judge
was sufficiently liberal, and that he considered the
government which employed him, entitled to his ser
vices in whatever capacity they could bo made usr -ful.
Mr, Lee possessed the entire confidence of both the
late and the present King; ind on more than one oc
casion has His Majesty Kamehameha IV. evinced his
appreciation of his services and his virtues, his ardent
attachment to his person, and his deep solicitude for
We have spoken thus far of Mr. Lee as a public
man, but a sketch of his character would be incom
plete without an allusion to his private and social
virtues. As is rarely the case, his public and private
characters were in singular" and beautiful harmony.
i No man has ever possessed the entire confidence of so
many of all ranks and conditions, both among natives
and foreigners, as he did. He was looked up to a
the counsellor and guide of many who were very
much his seniors in years, and among whom his loss
will be deeply felt throughout the group. United to
his glowing benevolence and love for his fellow men,
he possessed the happy faculty of appreciating at once
the gQod qualities of those with whom he was brought
in contact, and of stimulating their exercise and de
velopment. To his more intimate friends he was ar
dent, warm-hearted and generous. Always ready
and anxious to serve them, his eminently unselfish
disposition rendered him unwilling to receive any re
turn. To such an extent did he carry this feeling,
that though towards the close of his illness, his fail
ing strength and frequently recurring ill-turns ren
dered it necessary for him to have constant attention,
yet he refused to allow any of his friends to watch
with him, though they earnestly pleaded for the priv
ilege. And it was not till the very night of his de
parture that he consented to have any other attend
ance than that of the faithful and cherished partner
of his lot. In 1849 he married Miss Catherine E.
Newton of Albany, New York. In her heavy be
reavement words of comfort are of little avail. But
it may be some consolation to her to know that she
has the heart-felt sympathy of many warm friends,
and that her sorrow is in some measure shared by
those who found in the departed, a friend that fitick
eth closer than a brother.
Mr. Lee was the founder, and for several years the
President of the Royal Hawaiian Agricultural Soci
ety, and was indefatigable in his efforts to promote
the cause cf agriculture. He was one of the most
efficient members of the Board of Trustees of the
Sailors' Home, the success of which was an object
very dear to his heart. He was President of the Ha
waiian Bible Society, a strong friend of the temper
ance cause, and an active and liberal promoter of all
benevolent or religious objects, to the aid of which he
brought the same untiring zeal and energy that he
exhibited in his daily avocations. Most implicitly
did he follow in everything which he undertook the
scripture injunction, whatsoever thy hands find to
do, do it with all thy might." He was a sincere and
humble Christian, and though making no display 01
his piety, yet the tree was known by its fruit, and his
daily walk and conversation bore witness that he had
made the divine Master his pattern. He had not
united with any church here, not that he hesitated to
confess his Savior before men, but because he had an
insuperable objection to the adoption of any creeds,
which he looked upon as barriers of human inven
tion, dividing Christians from each other. He bore
his severe and protracted sufferings without a mur
mur, maintaining his characteristic cheerfulness to
the last, his only dread being that he should out
live his usefulness and become a burden to his friends.
To one of them who remarked to him that he seemed
very happy, he .replied, "yes, I am, very happy; I
am gliding peacefully down the stream of life, gath
ering flowers from either bank as I pass." In such,
a resigned and happy frame of mind did this eminent
man, having " set his house in orderf" await the ex
pected summons. And though he had reached but
half the allotted "three score years and ten," yet in
that short period he had accomplished a life time of
usefulness. ..He has early gone to his reward, but his
bright example remains to us. Well will it be for ua
both as a nation and as individuals if we strive to
follow it, and to heed the lessons which it teaches.
