ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON.
Tho Famous Hastor of English Dic
tion Dies in Samoa.
By the S. S. Arawa the sad news
comes of the death of Hubert Louis
Stevenson, the world - renowned
novelist. Ho died at his homo at
Apia, Samoa, on Sunday the 2nd of
December. His burial took placo
tho following day ou tho high hill
back of his residence.
Mr. Stevenson was a well-known
figure iu Honolulu. He spent a sea
son of rost hero soveral rears ago.
and attain last voar. On the latter
occasion he lived for somo mouths at
Sans Souci. Mr. Hutchinson tho
sculptor executed a bust of tho
famous author at that timo, which
tho subject praised as tho best ovor
made of him. Ho loft hero in very
One evening a deputation from
the Scottish Thistle Club wailed ou
Mr. Storensou, to ask him for a lec
ture before that society. Ho con
sented with great cordiality, but de
murred to its being called a lecture.
He would lust givo a little talk to
the club. Mr. Stevenson asked each
member of tho deputation about his
place of birth, etc., and spoke enter
tainingly about his own family troe.
He had been making investigations
for a life ol his araniualner wnicii
he was writing, in the course of
which ho had discovered several
variations in the fatiiilyname. At
the time of the proscription of Hob
Hoy McGregor and his family, many
relatives of the famous freebooter
changed their names to avoid prose
cution. Some of them look the
name of Stevenson or Stephenson.
Suddenly tho novelist changed tho
subject, with a merry gleam iu his
eyes saying: "What a strange world
this Is. Here is a lot of Scotchmen
sitting down iu tho middle of the
Pacific discussing their pedigrees."
Iu that short interview Mr. Steven
sou gave some intoresting facts of
curious things in Samoa, and seemed
to take great pleasure in eliciting in
formation out of tho ordinary about
His talk to tho club was delight
ful iu a high degree. It was de
livered without notes and was full
of nervous fire. Tho subject was a
sketch of what ho dcscritcd as "that
long brawl known as Scottish his
tory." Mr. Slovonsou referred to a
dedication of a book to him by n
friend in Scotland, as being "crush
iiigly pathetic, so that I could not
road it without a gulp. It was ad
dressed to mo iu tho third person
and bade mo remember those places
'where about tho graves of tho
martyrs the whaups are crying, this
heart remembers how.' Now, when
I think upon my latter end, as I do
sometimes, especially of late years
hIiuu it seems less imminent, I feel
that when I shall come to (lie out
here among these beautiful islands,
I shall havo lost something that had
been my due, my native, predesti
nate aud forfeited grave among
honest Scots sods. And I feel that
1 shall never quite attain to what
Patrick Walker tails, in one of those
pathetic touches of which I havo al
ready spoken, to my 'resting grave,'
unless it were to bo on one of our
purple hillsides, under one of our
old quaint and half-obliterated table
tombstones slanting down tho slope,
ami where about the graves of the
martyrs the whaups aro crying, mv
heart remembers how."
Tho foregoing pathetic conclusion
of tho "talk" is uow copied from
Mr. Stevenson's own handwriting,
he having kindly jotted it down iu
reply to a rumicsl from tho repre
sentative of this paper. Mr. Steven
sou later consented to deliver a pub
lic lecture for the benefit of tho
Scottish Thistle Club's library. A
day or two before tho date fixed,
however, ho became severely ill, aud
the late Dr. Trousseau warned him
that any such exposure aud exorcise
would bo at the peril of his life. Ho
id not realize how ill ho was and,
iu talking to his wife aud a friend,
expressed a desire to avoid disap
pointing the club and tho public, if
possible, as many tickets had been
sold. When told that his life was
the first consideration in tho matter,
ho remarked with a smile, "Well, it
would seem hard to die for tho sake
of a two-bob lecture." Mrs. Steven
son. it should here bo said, gener
ously expressed a willinguess to
uouaie to me chid s uiirary fund a
sum equal to the piobablo receipts
of tho lecture.
Mr. Stevenson wrote u great many
stories, besides articles for maga
zines. Among his most sensational
works is "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde."
One of tho most popular is "Tho
Master of Hallaiitrae." Ho wrote a
number of stories whoso scoue
is among tho Manila of the Pacific.
One is "Tho Hottlo Imp," whoso
first scene is laid at a rich mail's
hoiiho iu Sun Francisco. Then tho
reader is brought to a mansion iu
Honolulu, thence to Koua on Ha
waii, and lastly to Tahiti, where the
slorjr', which had baeu almost ap
pallingly weird, Huddeuly ends iu a
most ludicrous episode, yet oue with
a rather obvious moral. Mr. Steven
sou's popularity was ehielly bused
ou a mom fascinating style, charac
terized by a command of extremely
Mr. Stevenson was a Scotchmau
by birth aud education, Caledonia
was too "stern aud wild" for his con
stitution, however, aud for many
years he has made his homo iu the
balmy air of Samoa. His last literary
labors were upon a critical introduc
tion to a new edition of "Tho Pil
grim's Progress." Mr. Stevenson
having desired while here to join tho
Hawaiian Historical Society, he was
elected as a coriespoudiug member
of that organization, lie also cor
dially accepted tho ollieo of Honor
ary Chieftain iu the Honolulu Scot
tish Thistle Club.
The Muuuorchor is going to give a
concert Christmas evening at tho
Scottish Thistle Club hall.
