RESOLUTION OF RESPECT.
Passed by the Bar on the Death of J. K. Kahookano.
The following is a copy of resolutions passed by the Bar Association upon the death of J. K. Kahookano:
Whereas, it has pleased Almighty God to take from us our brother lawyer, John Kalua Kahookano; be it
Resolved, That we, the members of the Bar Association of the Hawaiian Islands, in meeting assembled, hereby express our deep regret at the loss which not only the bar but the whole community has suffered by the death of our brother; and,
Resolved, That the late John Kalua Kahookano was a man who, by his honesty, integrity and other sterling qualities, won the respect and the esteem of the Hawaiian bar, who deeply regret his demise at the early age of 38 years.
As a member of the Legislature he not only satisfied the desires of his constituents, but showed a deep interest in the general welfare of the country, and displayed marked ability in legal matters. To his efforts are mainly due the amendments to our statute defining the degrees of murder.
As a representative Hawaiian, his career was full of promise—promise of future usefulness to his country.
As a public-minded citizen, he sacrificed his time and health in discharging his duties as a volunteer health inspector during our present epidemic.
Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be forwarded by the secretary of this association to his widow, with an expression of our deep sympathy in the bereavement of herself and family.
