THUS DAY - - JAN. 16, 189G.
DISPOSAL OF THE DEAD.
As n .matter of fact a member of
iho Board of Health did suggest
ncromatory as a solution of the
problem of disposing of the dead.
Dut as his romark was uttered in
an undertone, or as an aside, our
Teportpr did not take it down.
WUilo there aro doubtless a large
proportion of pooplo who have a
jeiitinioiiUl horror of burning the
dead, we should bo strongly op
posed to making cremation the
exclusive modo of disposal of tho
dead. There is a rolling plot of
land near tbo Kakaako riflo butts
which, if it could bo had, would
make a boautiful sito for a city of
tho dead, and it would bo on the
lino of tho new beach boulevard.
A well-kept cemetery, with grace
ful momimonts and stately tombs,
is educative to tho living both in
esthetics aud raoruls. We should
suggest another sito on tho Bpur
behind Punchbowl, could it be
shown that it would not affoct any
artesian wells now existont or to
lomade. In discussing tho mat
ter at the Bpard meeting
& condition laid down as
eminently desirable was that
lhe cemeteries should not be too
far from town. Largo oitios ulso-TchorQ-havo
to havo thoir newer
cemeteries much farther from the
abodes uf tho living than is tho
case in Honolulu. This has given
rise to customs that aro not in
vogue horo. For instance, in tho
oity of Montreal, whoso Protest
ant and Catholic comotories, situ
ated behind Mount Royal, aro
places of- rare hoauty, it is cus
tomary in funerals out of promin
ent families for tho procession to
disperse in fragments as tho out
skirts of tho city uio renchod.only
the ohief mourners and represent
ative attendants proceeding to the
burial place. In many cases tho
great bulk of the procession, in
cluding the wealthier poople.go on
loot two and two, which is loally
more imuosing and respeotful
than a lino of dull carriages.
Singularly enough funerals of the
pporer classes are generally mado
pp of a string of hired car
riages, the coat of which is
not so great thoro as it
is in Honolulu. Perhaps one rea-
huh for tho custom mentioned in
fushiouablo funorals ia that in tho
long win tor senaon bodies aro not
oommittod to mother earth, but
atoicd in capacious Taults until
tho frost lets go its grip in spring
tirao, when a privato interment
takes place. Probably another
reason is to be found in the argu
ment of funorai reformers, that it
is a menaco to tho lives of elderly
people, especially, to stand with
bared liends for several minutes
in inolomont woathor around tho
grave while tho last sad rites of
"earth to earth" are boing performed.
It is nothing but proper that
tho other islands should receive
occasional visits from tho band.
Thoy help to pay for it.
Thoro was a good doil of disap
pointment among those taking an
interest in tho races tomorrow,
when it was learned that tho band
would not be allowed to play at
the truck. In answer to nn in
quiry, Minister Cooper givos as
the reason for rofusing tho ser
vices of the baud, that, tho races
not boing under tho auspices of
the Hawaiiau Jookoy Ulub. but
directed by an individual.it would

to grant tho privilege If it was
concodod to Mr.David there would
bo no reason fur rofu3ing it to
any othor priv.t individual who
was conducting an entertainment.

doath for tho retention of these
particular remains amongst
dead of his own house. Then,
whether with or without a con
tost over that point, if the bodies
were bound to be removed, thoy
claim that tho work should havo
boon accomplished in a raauuor
that respected their traditionally
treasured oustomB, instead of in
flicting anguish upon thoir feel
ings in addition to the injury douo
them in thoir family rights. Tho
account of the solemn ceremonies
with whioh Kalakuua invested the
removal of the othor dead will
show how in the present oaso the
tondorost sentiments of tho Ha
waiians havo been sorely smitten.
According to tho beBt informa
tion tho Bulletin can obtain,
from the sido of tho objectors, tho
facts relating to tho transfer of
the two Kamehumohas' bodios
this week aro gtvon bolow. Mrs.
Maria Beokley Kuiapeeluu, oaro
takor of tho mausoleum, on Mon
day morning discovered laborers
at work digging up tho oarth
covering the entrance to tho Ka-
mouamona tomb. As suo hold
the koyg and hud received no
notice or request to open the
gats she was naturally surprised
ut the proceedings. It was learn
ed afterward that tho workmen
had climbed over tho fence.
While she was present Mr. Da
mon, Miaistor of Finance nnd
one of tho trustees of tho Bishop
Estate, came along and requested
Mrs. Kaiapeelua to watch tho
On Tuesday morning there
appeared at the grounds Mr.
Hustaco of tho firm of Hustace
& Oo , draymen, with a horse nnd
dray and a party of laborers, ac
ooinpanhd by Mr. Lishmun tho
mason and assistants. Mr.
and Mrs "V. F. Allen, who
ohanoed to bo driving thut
way, ontored tho grounds to see
what all tho operutious moant.
Whon tho tomb had beon opened
by tho masons, tho party
proceeded with tho dray
to the mausoloum. Tho
door was oponed and tho party
entering the mausoleum took hold
of tho coffins of Kamohn'mohas II.
and III., and lugging them out
without ceremony, as if they were
common old lumber, placed them
on the dray, by whioh they were
hauled to the tomb, about sixty
yards distant, Tho coffins wero
carried from the' dray into the
vault, where thay wero doposited
on the floor, and then tho entrance
was soalod up again with masonry,
and tho approach refilled with
Queen Dowagor Kapiolani, who
had in tho incantimo'boon appris
ed of the proceedings, wus a wit
ness of tho roaepulturo. Sho re
marked to sympathizing frionds
that it was too lato to make any
orote3t, and she wailed in dis
tress as she s-iw how tho wishes of
her lite husband woro being ig
nored, as well us the most sacred
traditions of her pooplo ruthlessly
violatod in tho unmoor in which
the work waB effected. A number
of natives outside of thoienco sot
up loud wailing as thoy too wit
nessed what thoy deemedip-dose

liogos of their country,
THE OTIIKIt SIDH.
Statement of MlnlMcr Damon nnd
Otlien Asertlona Contradicted.
Minister S. M. Damon was soon
at the Financo Department, and
asked f r a statement on behalf of
tho Government and the Bishop
Estate. Ho asked with a smilo.if
it was necessary to say much
about the mutter, or wi.s it get
ting hard to liil the papers.
Upon boing informed that
u full statomont of tho ob
jections of those Aggrieved had
boon obtained, and thut it wis
dosired to give tho othor side
an equal opportunity, Mr. Damon
proceeded to explain tho mutter.
Mr. Damon told of how tho late
Mrs. Bishop had ofton expressed
the desire that a tomb should be
prepared to recoivo the remains of
the Kamehamohas including her
self as ono of ihoir lineage. Sho
foresaw a timo when times would
chango and u generation arise in
tliose lsianas who wuuiu nn
revero the memory of tho
Hawaiian Aliis, therefore de
sired that thoy might rest in
a tomb secure against obliteration
or spoliation. Thus tho idea of
tho Tomb of tho Kamohumehas
originated und was carried out
ufter its author's death.
Tho objection of Kalakuua, as
stated in tho foregoing, to tho ro
movul of tho bodies of iiamoha
inohu II. and III., was montioued
by Mr. Damon. Lately Charles E.
Bishop wroto to him from
San Francisco, suggesting that
tho original plan of ontombing
all the Kamehamohas together
should be carried out. Accord
ingly iNIr. Damon had consulted
tho Executive about the matter,
with the result that tho Minister
of tho Interior issued an order for
tho transfer of tho bodies.
Mr. Damon emphatically con
trudioted tho statomont thut thb
Queen Dowagor was grieved ut
the proceedings. On tho con
trary sho wbb un interested ob
server throughout and exhibited
more than her usual cheorfuluoss.
Tho assertion thut sho wailed
at the work was pure fic
tion. Not only was tho Queen
Dowager's demeanor as stated,
but Bho actually selected a spot
of ground near tho place for a
tomb for herself.
The entire work wub accom
plished decorously without any
intended disrespect to the dead.
Mr. Damon emphatioally contra
dictod a statement, givon to our
reporter but withheld on occount
of its roundabout trau&uiisbion,
that tho coffins were deposited in
two feet of water. Thore wus a
littlo water at the bottom of tho
vault, produced by conden
sation of tho oxtreroe dampness,
but tho coffins were placed upon
blooks. In fact tho atmosphere
was so dank in the vault that ho
and all who onterod wore stricken
As to the complaint against a
common dray boing employed for
tho transfer, Mr. Damon said it
was doomed tho Bofost way to
carry tho heavy coffins. In fact,
drays woro used to transfer tho
same bodies with others, many
years ago.from tho old mausoleum
in the Pnluca yard to the now one
in Is uuanu valley. Mr. Damon also
remarked that what waB claimed
by Kalakaua to bo tho body of
Knmohameha I. was still left in
company with his own remains in
From other trustworthy sources
the following facts are learned:
Instead of u gang of Portuguese
laborers, as statod in a contem
porary, Mr. Hustaco had seven
Hnwoiians to do tho work and
four Portuguese in charge of
tho horses. Mr. Mutch, superin
tendent of buildings for the
Bishop Estate, had a force of
nativo oarpenters with him.
Tho coffins wero handled with re
spootful oaro, but, when it is
stated that it took fourteen mon
to carry ono of them, it will bo real
ized how difficult was tho whole
PRESIDENT OF VENEZU
ELA AND OTHER
President Crespo of Venez
uela is a tall, heavy man, with
a countenance revealing1 force
and determination. He is ery
abstemious in his habit and
generally goes to bed at 8
o'clock in the evening. He is
in the habit of summoning his
Ministers to him at sunrise.
He is fond of cattle-ranching,
and owns a large number of
acres not far from the Venezu
elan capital. He is a fine eques
trian and has an unlimited
amount of backbone. He also
knows a good thing when a
friend puts him on to it. If he
lived in Honolulu he would be
one of the first to call at the
store of the Hawaiian Hard
ware Company and examine
some of that fine cutlery just
received by the last Australia.
Beyond question we have now
displayed on our shelves and
in our windows and showcases
the finest lot of cutlery ever
brought to these Islands.
One of those fine carving
sets with ivory or buckhorn
handles in handsome plush
cases would be just the thing
to take the fancy of President
Crespo or his great and good
friend Grover Cleveland. We
have also smaller sets of carv
ers, designed for game and
