The late James A. King was born
In Scotland and was 67 years of age
last month. He came to these Islands
first just after the close ot the Ameri
can Civil War, and shortly afterwards
took command of the old trading-
schooner "Kona Packet." owned hv
Williams ft Co., a Honolulu ahlDDlnic
firm. As master of this veuni ho mmin
a number of voyages to Alaska, Kams
chatka and the Japan sea on trading
expeditions. When the steamer Like
like was brought out by Wilder ft Co.,
he accepted the position of chief offi
cer, which he retained some time.
When the bark Eskbank was wrecked
off Walkikl and tho wreck nurchaaed
by S. G. Wilder, Captain King waa giv
en charge of the wrecking operations.
Tftere were so very successful that It
has been said the Eskbank was the
foundation ot the Wilder fortunes, as
It has become the name of Mrs. wit.
der'a beautiful residence.
After this Captain King was made
master of the Molokal and when the
Klnau was added to the company's
fleet he was given the command ot that
fine vessel, Later the company gave
him charge of all Its steamers, making
him wharf superintendent and in this
position be remained until he entered

men who have become prominent since
the monarchy none have stood higher
in public estimation than Captain
James A. King.
Among his Masonic brethren the
opinion is general that captain King
over-exerted himself on Sunday, after
noon In attending the funeral of John
Phillips. Against the advice of nearly
every one of his friends, who remem
bered that ho had but lately recovered
from a long, serious and almost fatal
sickness, and wished him to ride In a
carriage, ho persisted. In walking by

walk was too much for him and he
was seen to be suffering from Its ef

and a carriage was obtained for him.
After the funeral he concluded to go
over to the other side ot the Island for
a day or two'a rest, and met his death
