WILLIAM COOPER PARKE, Former Marshal of the Kingdom. Marshal of the Kingdom of Hawaii for thirty-four years, during which period he served under five kings, member of the king's privy council under Kamehameha V, and beloved friend and helper of the Hawaiian people, William C. Parke for decades was one of the most notable figures in the islands.
Loved alike by court officials and the public at large, Mr. Parke's forced retirement from the office of marshal in 1884, at the request of the King, who was actuated by political motives, was most sincerely lamented by everyone, and to him was paid the unusual tribute of a public resolution of regret, voiced through a joint meeting of the Supreme Court, members of the Legislature and the bar of Hawaii. He was lauded as the highest type of public official, and, in the words of Chief Justice McCully, was designated as "the chief officer of the executive arm of the judiciary department."
"Marshal Parke was more than honest," Judge McCully said in his eulogy. "He never lived merely for himself. He was always at the service of some one, either officially or in private. He made himself ex-officio a helper of the court and bar, and in serving the government he never forgot his duty to his fellow man."
At the conclusion of the ceremonies of public regret, Mr. Parke was granted a permanent settlement of $1200 a year by the Legislature, and was given a license to practice law.
Born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, on September 21, 1821, Mr. Parke was the son of William C. and Susan (Wilde) Parke, and a descendant of Captain Matthew Parke, who sailed with John Paul Jones as a captain of marines in the United States Navy, and returned from the cruise in command of the frigate "Alliance." Mr. Parke attended the public schools of Boston, but when nineteen years old ran away from home and stowed away in a sailing ship bound for Honolulu, one of the ships which his father was frequently called upon to outfit at Boston, where he was in business as a commission and shipping merchant. Coming to Honolulu in 1843, Mr. Parke went into the cabinet making business for a short time, and when the gold-rush excitement in California was at its height in 1849 he sailed to San Francisco. He located a claim in the vicinity of General Sutter's mill, near Coloma, became a close friend of General Sutter and bore back with him to Honolulu some of the original gold discovered at the mill. Upon his return to the islands in 1850 he was commissioned as Marshal of the Kingdom on June 1, by Kamehameha III, and this position he held until asked to resign for political reasons by King Kalakaua in 1884. Responsible for the maintenance of public order throughput the Kingdom, Mr. Parke organized a fine police system and administered this arm of the government efficiently. Perhaps his greatest contribution to Hawaii was his work during the great smallpox epidemic of 1853. The entire country was stricken, and one-third of the population died. With his characteristic tireless energy and love for mankind, Mr. Parke threw himself wholeheartedly into the task of aiding the suffering thousands, and organized relief parties who took charge of the entire situation. One exciting incident in the life of the former marshal occurred on the day of the election of King Kalakaua as ruler of the islands. The populace was divided into rival factions, and one group of malcontents descended upon Marshal Parke's office, where he had hidden the late Samuel G. Wilder and the late A. S. Cleghorn, prominent members of the legislature. Marshal Parke defied the intruders, and with the assistant of Sanford B. Dole and his brother, George Dole, his two friends were saved.
He was a true and trusted friend of the native Hawaiians, and scarcely another man of his time had such a large share of the native's affection and confidence. They came to him whenever in trouble or in need of advice, and frequently a line of natives would be at his door in the morning awaiting his counsel.
At one time he managed the business affairs of the Catholic Mission, and at various intervals he headed other religious and philanthropic affairs.
One of the original founders of Lihue plantation, on the island of Kauai, Mr. Parke left large sugar interests upon his death, which are still held by his daughters. He was decorated with the Order of Kamehameha I by King Kalakaua, and he was also a 33 degree Mason, Odd Fellow and a member of the Pacific Club.
In 1856 he married Annie Severance, daughter of Luther Severance, former American Commissioner in Honolulu, and upon his death on May 29, 1889, he was survived by four children, two of whom are now living, Miss Annie Parke and Mrs. Bernice Walbridge. His other two children were Miss Jane Severance Parke, and William Cooper Parke, who practiced law in Honolulu for many years. The Story of Hawaii and its Builders, edited by George F. Nellist.
