WalMdp of Apoplexy ILL BUT A FEW HOURS Life of a Man of Fine Attainments, Early Training In Hawaii. Well Liked. Russell D. Walbridge, a prominent citizen of Honolulu, died of apoplexy at his home in King street yesterday. Mr. Walbridge had been ill only a few hours when the end came at 8:30 a. m. Mr. Russell D. Walbridge was born in the city of Buffalo, N. Y., in 1S49, RUSSELL D. WALBRIDGE. (Photo by Williams.) whence, when ten years of age, he re moved to Detroit with his parents, and lived there until some sixteen years of age, in the mean time receiving a sound education. He early showed a decided taste for scientific and mechan ical studies, and this characteristic largely developed during a two years' course in mechanics and civil and min ing engineering at the Troy, N. Y., Polytechnic Institute. In accordance with the desire of his father, young Walbridge, having acquired the theory went to Idaho to perfect himself in the practice of mining, and engineer ing applied thereunto. Having accom plished this object some two years later he returned to Troy and resumed his studies at the institute, from which he graduated as a qualified Civil Engineer in 1871. Mr. Walbridge, being then of age, again went West to engage in his chosen profession; and for the follow ing seven years, as mining engineer, was employed more or less at scienti fic and milling work in various min ing enterprises in Arizona, Nevada and Idaho. In 1878 he first came to the Hawaiian Islands, at the request of the proprietors of the Wailuku Plantation;' his main object being to investigate the sugar-making industry. In 1880, upon the death of his father, he re turned to his native State, and re mained there until 1884, when he once more came to the Island Kingdom, this time to make it his permanent home. His knowledge of sugar-growing and milling, together with his qualifica tions as a scientific and expert en gineer and mechanician, secured for him the position of assistant manager of the Wailuku Plantation. He her made himself so valuable to the own ers that a year afterwards he assumed full charge of the fine property, with the title and emoluments of manager. A man, acquainted with the various methods in use in sugar-making, he also possessed much business tact, skill and managerial ability of a high order. He was known among sugar men as one of the most scientific as well as practical managers on these Islands. In 1S90, Mr. Walbridge was elected to the House of Nobles in the legisla ture, for a term of four years. Studi ous, fond of books, he was extremely popular and well liked, being an in teresting talker on general subjects, but more particularly so on his favor ite theme of science. For the last three years, Mr. Walbridge has been interested in the Lanai Sugar Planta tion scheme. In June, 1S90, Miss Bernice Parke became the wife of Mr. Walbridge. Genial and affectionate in his home Mr. Walbridge leaves with his wife a son to mourn his death. The funeral arrangements will not Le definitely planned until the arrival from Kauai of W. C. Parke, a brother of Mrs. Walbridge, tonight or tomor row morning. The funeral will prob ably be held' tomorrow afternoon. S GEO. A. DAVIS PARDONED. During all of yesterday it was whispered about town that At- torney Geo. A. Davis, whose im- prisonment for contempt of court has caused so much fuss, would be a free man. And so it came to pass. The Council of State was convened at 5 p. m. and a pardon granted. Mrs. Davis accompanied Marshal Brown to Oahu prison with the order for Telease. On Monday evening last when Davis left the police station, where he had occupied a special room provided by the author- ities, it was known that he was a-sick man. The numerous in- cidents of the case must be quite familiar to the whole community. The strain of the rushing events, into which the man threw himself with his well known impetuosity, proved too much for his severely tried nervous system and there were signs of a physical breakdown. Justice Whiting on Monday refused to issue a writ of ha- beas corpus petitioned for by Davis and yesterday the full Supreme Court, in an opinion by the Chief Justice, Mr. A. F. Judd, likewise denied a writ to JMr. Davis. This was, by the .way, the fourth proceeding of like character that Mr. Davis had instituted since December 24th last. All this time he has been studying his case with the closest application and on the one hearing, had some days ago, when he was defeated in his object, Mr. Davis made an extended and impassioned argu ment, replete with citations ger main to the case. The trouble Monday last was in the matter of carrying out the two sentences imposed on Davis. For the initial contempt he was fined $50 with the order that he remain in jail till the same was paid. Next he was sentenced to serve ten days' imprisonment beginning at the expiration of satisfaction of the first mittimus. Davis did not pay the $50 till he had a deci sion in his first habeas corpus case. It was held by the iMar shal that the ten day period did not commence till the first pen alty was paid. This made Mr. , Davis angry and was the cause of his appeals to Justice Whit- ing and the Supreme Court. The writ refusals sustained the Marshal and his legal advisors. Dr. C. B. Cooper, the Oahu 'prison physician, reported yes- terday morning that Mr. Davis was a sick man, that his condi- tion was serious. In the after- noon Minister Cooper went out to the prison with Drs. Cooper and Herbert. It was then ap- parent that unless there was a change at once Mr. Davis would collapse completely. He was hysterical and quite weak. It was upon the recommendation of Minister Cooper that Pres- ident Dole called the Council of State and recommended a par- don for Mr. Davis. It had been suggested on the street that Judge Prry, before whom the contempt was committed, would be willing to vacate the orders if he was informed of the con dition of Mr. Davis. But the law stood in the way. It could not be done. It is believed that in a few days, or it may be a few weeks, Mr. Davis will recover his health and be able to enter up on practice again. All of his clients who have been consult ed express willingness to await his return to his office and Chas. Creighton and other at torneys have volunteered to look after the business of the sick man so long as necessary. While at Oahu prison Mr. Davis has been cared for in the private quarters of the jailor, Mr. Henry. zs zJ o vS vj. S3 POPULAR PRICES. L. B.

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE PLAN One New DockCall for Tenders - for Material View of a Stu dent on the Harbor, In about twelve weeks from date work will begin on the extension of local wrharves for the purpose of re lieving the present sorry congested condition of Honolulu harbor. At a meeting yesterday morning the Execu tive Council authorized the Superin tendent of Public Works, Mr. Rowell, to order the material required to carry out the plans recommended by the Chamber of Commerce special commit tee and endorsed by the Cabinet. As the cost of the piles, copper, heavy timbers, flooring, etc., will reach sev eral thousand dollars and as there must be advertisement for tenders for any job involving the expenditure of more than $500, there will be a call for bids. Nearly all of what is required must come from the coast, though it will in all likelihood be ordered through local dealers. Mr. Rowell said yesterday that he would make every effort that might suggest itself in the direction of gaining time. When the material, is once at hand large forces of men will be employed in the work to be carried on. These wharves are to be lengthened Kinau, Nuuanu and Sorenson. Kinau wharf will be thirty feet longer and each of the others 100 feet longer. Ac commodation will thus be provided for the discharging or loading of several more ships than can possibly be hand led at present. Another work of the same kind increase of wharfage is to be taken up in connection with the above, in fact is part of the same. A new wharf is to be built abutting the Youman's estate land near Lime Kiln Point. As the slip here will be a wide one, a sec ond wharf may be added before the year is out. For the present nothing will be built about the slips near the Pacific Mail dock. It is expected that the United States Government will undertake some construction in this locality. Shipping men who learned yesterday of the promptness of the Cabinet in acting on the plan proposed by the Chamber of Commerce select commit tee, were much pleased. It was re marked that the trouble all along had been that just about the time the Gov ernment was ready to do something there would be interference on the part of private interests. Much of the credit for the adjustment which is to bring results is due to a couple of members of the Chamber of Commerce committee. One of the heaviest ship ping factors said yesterday that after all only temporary work was being entered upon. "What must de done, and that without delay," said the ship ping man, "is to make a beginning with work for a really larger harbor. Incidentally, whatever trouble there has been with the railroad company should be disposed of for all time. My idea, and I am led to believe that a majority of the practical men here will agree with me, is that the Government should direct operations or form a scheme for something bigger than has been suggested yet. It is clear that very few, if any of us, have appre ciated the volume and rapidity of the growth of Honolulu commerce and it is increasing by leaps and bounds. The harbor is simply not nearly half big enough and while what is about to be done will be considerable help if com pleted before the shipping season or sugar season is over, it is comparitive- lv nothing. It is making room for say even ten more ships, when as a matter of fact, when careful calculation is made it must be apparent that provi Makes the food more delicious and wholesome (KJVAt BKtHO sion should be made for half a hundred or an even hundred more vessels. To my notion that can be done only by going into the Kalihi basin. The problem will then be solved. I would also suggest that for the present more of the deep water in the neighborhood of the boat houses should be used for the shipping. This would he a hard blow to the yachting fraternity, but it would be an appreciable advantage to business. It will be recalled that when the U. S. S. Olympla was expected la this port in the fall of 1895, the Gov ernment dredger was used in. prepar ing a special basin in naval row, as the Olympla had greater draught than," any vessel before a candidate for the white line anchorage. Well, at that. time the dredger bored right into coral and sent a heavy stream of the same over in the neighborhood of the coal bunkers on the railway premises. I presume the dredger can do that sort of work indefinitely. If 1 am correct I see no reason why a good many hun dreds or even thousands of anchorage could not be added to the harbor by cutting into the reef back of naval row. The time is coming very soon now when the harbor must to some extent be divided or set off into sec tions. Let the lumber all go to one place, the coal to another, the iron to another and the general merchandise to another. Discharging would be greatly facilitated, as special provision would be made and maintained for the handling of the freight designated to the various localities. , I suggest that the Chamber of Commerce special or select committee be made a permanent body and that the Chamber hold a series of meetings for discussion of wharf matters alone. If we are to do big business here we. must have ade quate arrangements for it. Now that the Cabinet has shown a willingness to do what is right and to act without parley,, it seems to me that the whole business community hsts a chance to do a grand and valuable work of the lasting quality."
