Lying in State.
w m m -' -
On Saturday fiom 10 a. m. to G
p. in. the remains of the late W.
M. Gibson were lying in state in a
detached hall at his late residence,
King street. The body, encased in
a magnificent casket, with the face
and chest visible through a glass
cover, was placed in the centre of
the hall. On either side stood ka
hili bearers, and at the head and
foot were arranged exquisite floral
designs. Sisters of Mercy fiom
Knkaako were in constant attend
ance. All day long the hall and yard
were thronged with visitors, con
stantly coming and departing. Na
tive Ilawaiians exceeded all other
nationalities in numbers, nnd their
manifestations of sorrow and grief
At 2:45 on Sunday afternoon,
(yesterday), the lime announced
tor the funeral, tho Rev. Father
Leonore appeared in the hall where
the body had been lying in state,
and altera brief religious ceicrnony,
the procession was marshaled and
started for the Roman Catholic Ca
thedral, headed by the Rev. Father
just named. Long before the hour
named people began to gather in
and around Palace Square, and by
the appointed time a large concourse
was assembled there.
On arrival at tho Cathedral the
large building was packed full of
people who had proceeded. The
ceremony theic was conducted by
the Right Rev. Bishop of Olba, as
sisted tho Rev. Fathers Leonore and
Sylvester, and was solemn and im
pressive. The Bishop delivered a
short address in English and Ha
waiian, in which he stated that the
deceased had died in tho faith of
the Catholic! Church, and was now
entitled to all, its funeral rites.
"Let him who is without fault
among you cast tho first stone."
From tho cathedral the proces
sion proceeded down Fort street to
King street, and along King street
to tho Catholic cemetery. Tho
hearse was drawn by about 180 na
tive Ilawaiians. Tho procession of
carriages and pcdcstiians was a
long one, and marched to the solemn
strains of tho Hawaiian band. Tho
sides of the street along the routo
were thronged with spectators.
Tho final ceremony at tho ceme
tery was conducted by tho Rev.
Father Leonore, and tho remains
temporarily deposited in a tomb,
until artangemeuts are complete for
their removal to the island of Laimi,
the late ex-Premier's estato. A pro
fusion of lloral offerings, worked in

Iu last week's Notes the question
was asked and left unansweied,
whether Illlo has been getting her
just propoi tion of tho public funds
for tho support of her schools. Not
withstanding the fact that "com
parisons are odorous," the writer of
the Notes pioposcs to make a few of
them this week, and in so doing he
may suggest the answer to his own
The last census gave the number
of children of school age in Hilo as
1221. The whole number of chii
dien of school ago on the islands of
Kauai and Niihau, according to tho
same authority, was 1311. The
ratio probably remains about the
same. Of the appiopriation of
8100,000 for the support of Ha
waiian and English schools, made by
the Legislature of 1884 and reported
to the Legisiatuic of 188G, 2,400
was paid out for the schools of Hilo
District, and 81G,8S1.18 was paid
out for the schools of Kauai. In
other words, Hilo received from tho
appropriation S1.9G per capita of
her school population, while Kauai
received 812. .10 per capita of hers.
Has Hilo been getting her just pro
portion of the public funds for tho
support of her schools? The writer
declines to answer, as ho does not
wish to be classed among "croak
ers." But he does not forbid read
eis to draw any inferences they may
think just and proper from the
statements of facts ho has made.
These facts probably account for the
survival of tne "four-bit" teacher in
Hilo after he lias disappeared from
most, if not all, other paits of the
Islands. Now if our friends twit us
about our schools and some of the
talent which our scanty funds se
cure, we may not sny much, but
we shall think some tilings.
Among the books kindly presented
to Hilo Library Association by
Honolulu Library Association, the
following arc notable:1 Ilallam's

books of interest and of value. It
is not an easy matter to make a
proper review of the gift, owing to
the fact that the Library does not
possess sufficient shelf room to put
the books out on view, and the de

IN A LITTLE DIFFERENT LIGHT.
Editor Bulletin: Is it possible
that there aro in this country men
who are willing to believe that four
of our Supreme Court Judges would
perjure themscves by giving a de
cision that is not in keeping with
their understanding of tho law? It
cannot be. Yet it would seem fiom
tho articles which appeared in last
week's "Gazette," signed, one by
W. Y. Horner, the other by Hiloito,
that these two men suspect that tho
Supreme Court has for tho purposo
of mixing itself in politics given a
decision in tho case of Everett vs.
Baker that is antagonistic to their
Will theso gentleman wash the
blood out of their oyes for a few
minutes ; lay aside all partizan feel
ing, and endeavor to look at tho
matter iu a little different light?
Suppose, Mr. W. Y. Horner, that
you had an individual on your plan
tation who had been in your employ
for some time, and you weio ills
satisfied with his actions, still you
did not wish to dismiss him, if you
could possibly avoid so doing, Ac
cordingly you draw up an agree
ment botween this man and your
self, ouo that is in every sense satis
factory to you: you place the
instrument before tho man, and in
form him that ho has tho alternative
of signing that or leaving your em
ploy ; the man reads tho contract,
and after some deliberation informs
you that ho would rather not sign,
as tho agreement eives you too
many advantages. But you are ob
durato, and insist upon his signing
Tho Arcado-EGAN & CO.
Vail nml I'.xnmlno tlio
$12.00 Gent's Blue Flanl Suits
the instrument or leaving your cm
ploy, and he decides to sign.
Everything goes well for a few
weeks, until tho man attempts to
take advantago of one of tho privi
leges given to him in the contract.
This displeases you, and you there
fore pounce upon the man, and
say, "Here my man, you can't do
this; this is entirely wrong." But
the man tells you that that is his
understanding of that particular
portion of the contract. You insist
that you did not intend him to havo
any such advantage, and tell him
that such an interpretation would
change tho tenor of the whole in
strument. But it is now tho man's turn to
be obduiatc, nnd ho insists upon
having his rights. You on tho other
hand aro strongly opposed to his
having such rights and declare that
it shall be as you say. You inform
the man that he has no right to
think upon the subject) that you arq
the only one who is entitled to in
terpret the instrument, and it is all
sufficient that he does as you dic
tate to him. But he cannot agree
to this, and finally you both con
clude to leave the matter to a board
of arbitration, composed of five hon
After due deliberation four of tho
members of this board decide that
the man is in the right. They
naturally ask why you placed the
article in the contract if you did not
want the man to take advantage of
it, and you are compelled to admit
that you placed it there for the pur
pose of whipping the devil around
the stump over the man's shoulders.
The writer is personally acquaint
ed with Mr. Horner and knows him
to be an honorable gentleman. He
believes, moreover, that after a little
calm deliberation Mr. Horner will
be quite willing to admit that His
Majesty the Kings has not usurped
any right that is not given to him by
the Constitution, but that the fram
crs of that instrument have made a,
mistake, andthcy should at least be
.graceful enough to acknowledge it
like honest men.
The Supreme Court Judges are
not placed on the bench to give de
cisions that will pieaso the people,
no matter whether right or
wiong. They hold their position
by virtue of their supposed know
ledge of the law, and if they have
not a better understanding of legal
documents, etc., than the ordinary
individual, why have they been se
lected to fill the position.
I do not believe that "Hiloite"
will be gratified by seeing history
repeat itself in Hawaii in the way
that he refers to. We do not want
any more revolutions ; they are an
tagonistic to the welfare of tho coun
try. Neither do we want to apply
to the United States for admission
into the Union ; it might make us
sound, as Mr. Horner says, but it
would also make us poor, and pov
erty is, to say the least, a very un
comfortable thing to grapple with.
