This morning about eight, a horse
attached to an express belonging to
the Fashion stables, took fright near
Brewer's wharf and started off along
Queen street at a high rate of speed,
beyond the control of the driver.
"When near Alakoa street the driver
managed to stop its career by turn
ing it to one side of tho road, with
out doing much damage. An ex
press containing Hon. S. G. "Wilder
had n hairbreadth escape "from
being run into.
Last Friday afternoon, Mr. Cro
zicr, employed at the Iron "Works,
went out buggy-riding with a lady
towards the Pali. The road being
narrow he got out to turn the horse
and carriage round, when the latter
got turned over and the lady was
thrown out. The horse made a
dash, got away and returned to
town on its own account. The lady
was picked up aud placed in another
carriage and taken home hardly any
the worse for the mishap.
THE LAST SAD RITES.
The funeral of the late Mr. Julius
L. Richardson took place on Satur
day afternoon from St. Andrew's
Cathedral. The church was filled
in every part by friends of the de
ceased. On the coffin were some
most beautiful floral tributes. The
impressive service was conducted by
the Revs. Alex. Mackintosh and
George "Wallace. The hymn, "Nearer,
My God, to Thee," was sung. The
remains were taken to the Nuuanu
Cemetery, followed by a long line of
carriages and the whole of the
laborers from the Waianac planta
tion, of which the deceased was the
much respected manager. The com
mittal service was read by the Rev.

and all passed off smoothly and plea

illness of the the hostess. Upon the
presentation of a substantial token
of their kindly regard, by the peo
ple of the district, the reverend
gentleman spoke feelingly of his re

demanded that he leave a people

The Dead Queen.
Removal of tho Remains f 'om tho
Houso to Kawaiahao Church.
ESCORT OF FIVE MILITARY C0MPANIE.
Tho StrooU Thronged with Spectators,
On Saturday evening, a few min
utes past eight o'clock, tho remains
of tho late Queen Dowager Emma
were removed from her late resi
dence to the Kawaiahao Church. A
platform had been erected from the
verandah to within a short distance
of the front entrance, and also one
at the church. Long before the
time appointed large crowds, of peo
ple gathered in the grounds and on
Nuuanu and Beretania Streets. The
remains had been placed in the out
side coflln during the afternoon and
l ested on a small bier on wheels
draped heavily in black. Over the
coflln was a beautiful purple pall,
with the Hawaiian Coat of Arms
worked on in colors, surmounted
with a crown, the wholo bordered
with gold lace. This was made by
the sisters of St. Andrew's Priory.
About ten minutes before eight
o'clock a band of native singers
entered tho room of mourning and
sang several moles, finishing with
Hawaii Ponoi. The military com
panies to form a guard of honor
were drawn up on Nuuanu Street
in the following order: Honolulu
Rifles, Drum Corps, King's Own,
Mamalahoa, Prince's Own and
King's Guard. Then came the Aha
hui Poola, the members of which
drew the catafalque bearing tho
remains. It was about ten minutes
past eight o'clock when His Ex.
Governor Dominis gave the order to
start. The body was drawn slowly
from the room where it had lain tho
past two weeks, on to the verandah,
down the platform to the catafalque.
A large number of kahili bearers
stood on cither side of "tho platform.
The scene as the body moved down
the platform almost baflles descrip
tion. The loud sorrowing wails of
the beloved Queen's people could bo
heard a long distance off, and" their
grief was beyond control.
Amongst those present at the
house were: Their Royal High
nesses the Princesses Liliuokalani
and Likelike, His Ex. Gov. Dominis,
TTin TV J Af "KVinnnn I1 H 1
Iaukca, of His Majesty's Staff,
Major E. "W. Purvis, Vice-Chamberlain,
and Messrs. A. J. Cartwright
and "W. C. Parke. Majors A. Rosa
and J. D. Holt accompanied the
procession which moved about a
quarter past eight o'clock down
Nuuanu Street on to King Street,
thence direct to the church. The
line of march was thronged with
spectators of all nationalities. Ar
riving at the church the remains
were met by Cols. C. P. Iaukca and
Boyd of His Majesty's Staff and the
Vice-Chamberlain, Major Purvis ;
and inside the church wore H.B.M's
Commissioner, Major J. II. "Wodc
house and Mrs. AVodehouse ; Hon.
C. R. Bishop and others. The pul
pit platform was appropriately drap
ed in black, and kahilis stood tho
whole length of tho centre aisle, up
which the body was slowly drawn.
The whole of the pillars and the
royal seats were also draped in
black. The coflln resting on the
biors was lifted up on the platform
by a detachment of police, and after
being placed in position, a number
of kahilis were fixed around. At
tho head were the crown, decorations
and jewels, and at the foot a cruci
fix with a beautiful cross of white
flowers as a background. Lighted
candles were placed at each corner
of the platform, and ail along the
front stood numerous boautiful floral
designs. Shortly after 11 o'clock,
thoso who were to watch all night
were about the only ones left in the
Sunday morning opened out some
what dull. There had been consider
able rain in the valleys, as evinced
by the swollen streams. The pre
parations for tho funeral were car
ried on under the supervision of
Mr. W. C. Parke, who has had
charge of all the important funerals
for the pa6t thirty years. Every
thing was in rsadincss by Saturday
evening. Towards noon the clouds
became heavy, and it commenced to
rain, pouring down in torrents all
the afternoon, evoning, and through
the night. Shortly after noon the
church was well filled with those who
had come to witness the last sad
rites. At one o'clock it was decided
that two guns would be fired from
the shore battery if the funeral was
to bo postponed. About half-past
one o'clock the rain came down still
heavier, and it was at once apparent
that the funeral would not take
place that afternoon. At 2 o'clock
Major Purvis, the Vice-Chamberlain,
arrived at the church from the palace
and informed the Hon. John Cum
mings thai the obsequies had been
postponed. The latter, who is mar
shal of the funeral procession, then
announced the decision fiom the

and the largo audience gradually
At 10.30 o'clock Sunday morning
tho Rev. Alex. Mackintosh held a
memorial service for tho Hawaiian
patients of the Queen's Hospital,
which was of tho most impressive
iiaturc. The hall iu which the ser
vice took place waw beautifully de
corated. Two pictures of the lato
Queen draped in black were placed
in prominent positions, and tho tem
porary reading desk was one icais
of lovely flowers. The singing was
hoarty and joined in by all present.
Tho Rev. Mr. Mackintosh made an
appropriate address, speaking of the
hospital as a mcmoiial left by the
dead Queen, which she worked so
hard to build. It was her wish that
her people should take advantage of
it and not hide themselves away
when sick. The hospital was built
for the benefit of the people. Tho
rev. gentleman gave an account of
how Kamehamcha IV. and the late
Queen joined the Anglican Chuich,
and what they had done for it since
then, and concluded with an earnest
appeal to parents to send their child
leu to church and bare them brought
up in the right way.
HEAVY RAIN STORM.
About 10 o'clock yesterday morn
ing it commenced to rain and to
wards noon it came down in torrents,
not letting up until about 9 o'clock
this morning. Siucc then it has been
raining, but not quite so hard as in
the early part of the day. The da
mage done by this storm will amount
to many hundreds of dollars. The
lower pait of the town along Queen
street was almost entirely under
water, particularly Alakca street.
The block next to the Mutual Tele-
phono Co. building, running from
Merchant to Queen sheets, is en
tirely undor water, and the occu
pants of the cottages had to move
their things up stairs or take them
elsewhere to a place of safety. Very
earl'' this morning the water there
was over tvo feet high. It has gone
down considerably since then, but
about a foot remains.
The Nuuanu Valley stream was
much swollen, and considerable da
mage has been done at the second
bridge. The water came down last
night with terrific force, and this
morning, on the mauka side of the
bridge, there is a gap in the road
eighteen feet by four, which has
been washed away into the stroam,
taking with it two of the new water
pipes. The noise of the water, as it
rushed along, could be heard a long

Valley lose yesterday, between a
quaiter before five o'clock and a
quarter past, between eight aud ten
feet high and three or four times as
wide. Mr. W. S. Luce had some
land ploughed recently, and theio
were hundreds of hills of eaith
washed away by this freshet. A pig
belonging to him died of fright.
Mr. J. F. Brown's residence on
King street was entirely surrounded
by water, looking like a lake with a
house in the centre.
At Waikiki a tremendous lot of
damage has been done. This end
of Kapiolani Park is entirely under
water. Mr. Cecil Brown estimates
the damage to his property at about
SG00. About $300 worth of black
sand was entirely washed away. An
embankment 10 feet high near the
Lemon homestead was washed away
out to sea. Mr. Henry Macfarlanc's
fishponds were washed away and the
fish have gone to sea.
On opening the corner store of
the Temple of Fashion thin morning,
it was found to contain two inches
of water, and in the Custom House
storehouse there is over three inches.
Messrs. Ilackfeld & Co.'s cellar has
about three inches of 'water in it,
and laborers arc at work with buck
ets bailing it out. Other places

Out along the Pnlama Road the
country looked this morning like
Dutchland with the dykes burstcd.
Tho Princess Liliuokalani's gaulen
was like a miniature archipelago, the
water flowing deep on all tho paths.
From the seams of the stone retain
ing wall on the town side gushed a
hundred tiny cascades. Iu places the
drain overflowed the road. Chinese
vegetable gardens were beneath the
flood, and plant after plant let go its
clutch of the soil and was washed
into the roadside torrent. A native
woman was seen wading knecdeep
across a lot out to the road. The
road leading to St. Louis College
from King street was a lake for its
whole breadth, deep enough to float
a canoe. Coming into town, between
the bridge and Maunakca street, se
veral yaids length of a heavy coral
rock fence lay prostiato on the mau
ka bidewalk. It had evidently been
undermined by tho freshet, and pas
sengers would do well to avoid going

DE YOUNC-SPREGKELS CASE.
The case of M. Dc Young against
Adolph Sprockets, which was set for
April lGth, was postponed to 20th
Apiil on application of Spreckels,
counsel who had been so much occu

not been able to attend to the case.
A number of affidavits were filed in
support of tho motion for a contin
uance, and in one by II. F. Ilighton,
of counsel for the defence, occurs
the following: "One of the defences
to be made is that the defendant
committed the act charged while un
der the influence of a morbid and
uncontrollable impulse, by which a
free determination of the will was
precluded; a condition of mental
disease which is termed by law
writers 'impulsive insanity.' " The
