power with the Chinese. According to the est i-

by the minister of finance, China will have an

The intials are easily recognizable
as those of Ray St annard Baker, tbej
magazine writer, who was here some'
months ago. In his little sketch
Baker says: - :
"At one time some twenty years
ago there was no more unique and
interesting figure, before the Ameri
can public than Liliuokalani, queen o
the Sandwich Islands. For weeks
during the administration of' President
Cleveland, while she1 was struggling
to retain the royal crown of Hawaii,
her doings filled the American press
and she was a favorite- subject for
the 'jibes of cartoonists and paragraphs
ers. ; , ., ' -' v'. v - .
"I saw her recentlr in Honolulu.
She was driving out, according to her
custom, in an open carriage a really
impressive figure, large, dark and
with an air of distinction not un
queenly. In earlier years a, woman
of force and pride, she has now re

and to listen to the singing of the
dweet Hawaiian songs. Though hav
ing no longer any power, she is yet
looked up to an venerated by all her
people ail the path&ic remnant of a
once numerous race .of islanders.
While she was bitterly attacked in
her day by tbe Americans, who wished
to rule the islands, and while she
caused the revolution whfch cost her
a crown, there are many today who
will tell you that, after all, she was
only making a last forlorn stand for
people and for her throne against the
encroachments of the eager, busy, de
structive, irresistible orderly white
man. After it was all over and she
came back tc Honolulu, the new
American government voted ier a

living quietly upon it ever since.
Those who know her intimately say
she is a woman of fine intelligence
and possessed of many truly queenly
qualities. With her will die the last
