IN NEW YORK
He Gould Not Recover From an Attack
of Pneumonia and
Mr. H. Alexander Isenberg, and managing director of II.
llackfeld & Co., Ltd., of Honolulu, and German Consul for tho Hawnlian
Islands, died peacefully in New York City yestorday afternoon, after an illness
lasting about six days.
Mr. Isenbcrg, accompanied by Mrs. Isenbcrg and tbeir two children,
rivod last week at Now York from Germany, en route to Honolulu, whon ho was
stricken with pneumonia, having, it is thought, contracted a cold at sea. Although
of large build and apparently a strong man, Mr. Isenberg succumbed
quickly to tho ravages of a diseaso which is peculiarly fatal to islanders on
tho mainland, especially during the cold months.
H. Hackfcld & Co., Ltd., were kept in constant knowlcdgo of tho condition
of Mr. iBenbcrg. A cablegram was received unexpectedly yesterday morning
to1 tho effect that tho patient was sinking and yesterday afternoon additional
messages held out no hopes of recovery.
The Isonbergs left hero about eight months ago on a visit to Germany.
H. Alexander Isenberg was born in Bremen, Germany, Jnnuary 17, 1871,
and camo to Honolulu about cloven years ago. He was made managingMiroctor
of H. Hackfcld & Co., Ltd., in 1900, In tho absence of Mr. J. P. Hackfeld, Mr.
Isenberg holding the title of vice-president.
lie was also the German Consul and entertained, both in his consular and
private capacities, in a lavish manner, his elegant home at Punahou boing
especially adapted for social functions. Mr. Isenberg was a great admirer ot
the Kaiser, and on the occasions of tho Emperor's birthday, ho entertained
the public elaborately at tho Consular offices. In 1807 Mr. Isenberg married
Miss Virginia Duisenberg of San Francisco, tho bcauliful and talented daughter
of Chas. A. C. Duisenberg, tho first German Consul of the California
metropolis, who arrived thero in 1819. Mr. Duisenberg was one of San Francisco's
leading business men.
The lato Hon. Paul Isenberg, formerly president of H. Hackfeld & Co.,
Ltd., who died in 1903, was H. A. Isenborg's father. The deceased leaves surviving
him, besides his wifo and two children, tho Hon. D, P. R. Isenberg, a
"who was, president of tho Hawaiian Senate lust session; and Mrs.
Dora Isenberg, a half-Bister, residing at Lihuo, Kauai.
In Germany ho has three sisters and two brothers. One of his sisters was
married at Bremen, four days boforo his departure for Honolulu. Mr. Isenberg
was a man of striking appearance, and was gc.isl mid companionable in
social and business circles.
Mr. Isenberg's name was identified with almost every large business and
charitable enterprise in the Hawaiian Islands. Ho was a prominent member of
tho Chamber of Commerce, of which ho was onco president, holding the same
cfDce at ono time in tho Hawaiian Sug.ir Planters' Association. He was also
the first presidont of tho Sugar Factors' Association. Among tho plantations
closely identified with Hackfeld & Co., Ltd., and of which Mr. Isenberg was
cither an officer or director, were the Oahu Sugar Co., Pioneer Mill Co., Lihuo
and Hanamaulu Sugar companies, Kcknha Sugar Co., Hawaii Mill Co., Kukaiau
Plantation Co., KipahulU Sugar Co., and Grove Farm Co. He was also president
of tho trustees of the Lutheran Church in which ho was deeply interested
and was an officer of tho Queen's Hospital.
Mr. Isenbcrg began his business career with H. Hackfeld & Co., Ltd., as
.most of its leading men began at the bottom of tho ladder. He went through
every position in th6 clerical departments, being successively bookkeeper and
cashier, until ho finally became a managing officer, and finally the head.
It is believed that Mr. Isenberg's cstnto is a largo one. His holdings in
all business enterprises connected with Hackfcld & Co.'s management wero
substantial, and ho camo into a large estate on the death of his father.
W. Pfotenhauer has been directing tho affairs of H. Hackfetti & Co., Ltd.,
in tho absenco of Messrs. Hackfeld and Isenbcrg, and is tho acting German Consul.
No word was received by him last night as to what disposition will bo
made of tho remains, but it is believed they will be conveyed to Bremen for

TOKIO, Oct. 21. From the edge of
a gray dawn, and even ere the first
rays of another day resolved the forms
of the great array of Japan's
out of the depths of night
Into the dark, threatening majesty of
their Immobile might there was movement
onthe face of-the waters,ji quick
hurrying and scurrying of tiny craft,
their little lights fitting about like will-o'-the-wisps.
For the great day was
at hand, the day that should mark a
long stride onward In the progress of
a nation and everything must be In
readiness. And while the day was yet
young the vicegerents
of that great navy whoso foster
child was today to be so proudly displayed
before the world, moved, one
by one, to stand by and applaud In
thunderous tones the child that had
attained so glorious a maturity. It
was a great prize day, the hard tests
were safely passed and a halt was called,
a well-earned vacation declared
ere the preparations for future struggles
were bun. It was a day when
a proud Emperor came to bestow warm
praiso on his servants, on his children
who had so fully realized his
hopes and so entirely Justified the
great confidence he had displayed In
Lost to take a place In that vast
parado were the submarines, so potentially
awful yet so small that even
the lumbering, slow-sailing Junks acquired
added size as they passed.
Now the preparations were ended
and away Into the distance, far burled
In the misty horizon, wero the long,
dark, silent lines, so quiet yet so tensely
eager, as faithful hounds who faintly
hear the sound of their beloved
master's approaching footsteps.
The day wore on, an occasional
gleam of white sunshine breaking over
the quiet waters which lay smoothly,
as though subdued by the weight of
tho atmosphere of expectation.
Suddenly a qulckr puff of white
smoke, a few seconds of silence and
then tho crash of a gun. Faster and
faster shot flash and smoke, and roar
followed roar until the heavens reverberated
with a clashing nnd bursting
clamor rivaling in volume the
fiercest artillery of wild and raging
avenue ended, the royalty-laden vessels
turned and proceeded down yet
another waterfloored glade back to
land with Its hoarsely cheering, close-packed,'
And wo"who ero privileged to see
all this, f& witness this great display
i and .Jiear the vociferous expression of
I the devotion of loyal subjects to their
J-Emperor and Mikado, followed on un-1
til we reached the last ship of those
serried ranks. Caesar had returned to
J come with captives bound to his
chariot wheels und these captive
were no weaklings, unfledged and callow,
but mighty fighters who fought
to the last, fought to the verge of
death, and now, revivified,
live to fight again; but next time
their power will be on the side of their
conquerors. Thus did empires ever
grow,, the victor absorbing the strength
of the vanquished and advancing with
ever Increasing virility towards the
zenith ot dominion and sovereign command.
Back v,o slowly steamed past tho

republic-past tho ships of Japan's
great peaoe preserving ally and turned
towards home. The day was far spent,
,the hours of light were nearly ended,
but thero had beet no sun, no brilliance,
though there had been so much
to see, so much to admire and observe
(that we had not missed It until now.
Eight bells rang out from a small torpedo
destroyer nnd ns If by magic tho
long lines were Illuminated with a brilliance
that was marvelous. Through a
I rift In tho clouds the yellow rays flood
ed down gliding sea and sky, throwing
the myriad flags- and streamers Into
glorious prominence, revealing tho outlines
of the close-crowded ships with
clear definition and making a scene be-
iiore wnicn tne observers
stood entranced and enthralled. It
.was magnificent, memory-haunting, a
Irovel of color and grandeur, a sight
that made men feel like gods because
they could appreciate and admire. Long
dormant sensations roso in resistless
throng pressing upon the brain, catching
the heart, clutching the throat. For
n few glory-enfolded minutes It lasted
nnd when we at last turned away to
face tho radiant west there was a.
gleam In many weary eyes that had
long bpen foreign, a pulsing throb of
the very soul and fibre recalling the
days of youth and hope and gladness
ere tho deadening misery of disappointment
and the paralyzing power of gold
grubbing and mean pettiness had rob-,bed
life of Its elasticity and the soul
of its virgin purity. Such moments are
good for men. t
I Then the soft curtain of night fell,
but the pomber queen was not to remain
long In possession. From shore
and sea bright lights flashed In brilliant
colors and then on the far horizon a
fairy fleet leapt Into 'being, a fleet of
dainty vessels outlined In radiance,
gleaming with soft glory, whilst o'er th
,ky weird streamers of
light flashed, searching the depths of
I tho clouds like fiery messengers of light
sent to the outer darkness. Then the
miles-long rays spread to all parts of
the sky and the great emblem of Japan,
the streaming rays of the rising
sun, wero typified In a far-spreading
emblem thus fitly nnd with wonderful
approprlateners closing a day of
grandeur, a day of which tho old men
of the future will proudly talk.
