The Beloved Kaiulani Passed Away
2 a. m. Monday The Illness
and the End.
(This picture wag made In Ixndon and represent the young lady lu more
robust health tliun she enjoyed hero at any time.)
Tho beautiful and amiable young
Princess Kaiulani, who was heir ap
parent to the tbrouo of Hawaii, died at
2 o'clock this morning.
Tho pnyslclans had said for the past
week that the condition of the girl was
serious, that her illness had taken a
bad turn, that the rheumatism was in
vading tho region of tho heart, that
there was grave danger; but that there
were talr prospects of recovery. About
1:30 this morning It camo to the pass
that tho end was expected momentarily
and lnlimato friends wore summoned
to the bedside.
There was not a long wait lor tho
dissolution. Tho silver thread by which
life bad been hanging snapped 11 Wo tho
overtaxed string of a fine stringed in
strument. And there passed away she
who was most beloved of all tho Ha
w.i'lan race. Kaiulani was tho Idol of
the ratlves. The mourning will be
deep and general. With tho foreign
population tho young lady was a great
favorite. She was a leader In social
affairs aid charltablo enterprises.
At the moment' ot tho death, pre
cisely at 2 o'clock there were In the
room of tho Princess at Alnahau, the
Walklkl home, the following: Gover
nor A. S. C:cghorn, father of tho young
lady, Mr. and Mrs. Jas. W. Robertson,
Jas. ii. Boyd and wife, Miss Kate Vlda,
Miss Helen Parker, Col. S. Parker, Dr,
D. O. St. Walters, Mrs. D. O. St. Wal
ters, Dr. K. L. Miner, Princo David,
Lumahelhcl, Miss Elslo Robertson and
One of the two physicians said last
evening: "Tho Princess rested better
on Saturday night. Sho was ablo to

Sunday morning, but as tho day pro
gressed there was an improvement in
her condition. This (Sunday) evening from Hawaii in a hurry by her father

trouble Is rheumatism and It has
threatened tho heart. Altogether It can
bo said that the young lady is slightly
better, but not yet entirely out of
dunger. Her Illness during the past
few days has been an alarming one."
There lias been the widest and the
most solicitous Interest in tho Illness
of Princess Kaiulani. Sho was brought
heme from the Island or Hawaii sick
a month ago. S nco that time every
day scares of friends have called to of
fer their services or to learn the con
dition of one whom they admired and
loved. Inquiries over tho telephone
were numerous. 5ov. Clcgborn has
been a constant attendant In the sIck
room. From the very first he was
much alarmed, as he know better than
any other living person the strength,
or lack of strength of tho young wo
man. Mrs. Robertson, Miss Vid.i and
Miss Parker have been at tho house
marly all tho time.
Th illness dates back not more than
four mci'tlis. At that period there was
an attacic of rheumatism, said to havo
been Irritated by a trip to ono of the
vnlleyj Uck of Honolulu and a short
stay In a country home, with somo
cxrocnrc to the rain storms. A trip to
Hawaii was advised and tho Prlncoss,
with her maid and a couple of girl
friends took passago by the Klnau for
Mana, Hawaii, tho homo of the Park
ers. For a time tho caso progiesaed
well. In fact It was reported that tho
illnos3 had all but disappeared. Next
camo news that there had been a set
back or a recurrence. With this re
port were two accounts. One was
that the Princess had, after a swim
from the beach, exposed herself too
long on a rather cool day. Tho other
report was that the young lady had,
when still too weak for such n Jour
ney, gone with a party for a long ride
into the mountains.

lanlnul.ihllAp.ilnpa. She was born Oct.
1C, 187G. id consequently In her
21th )vr. Her mother was the Prin
cess Miriam Ltkellko and her father
Governor Cloghorn. At the age of II
tho PrineeoH was taken to England
to bo educated. At the proper ape
sho was received In tho most excliwhc
circles, u.io painted, was n finished

etiquette of tho gentle folk All of this
tlmo she was the ward of the late Thoo.
II Davie, who took tho greatest In
terest in h;r "welfare. When the over
throw of the Monarchy camo In 1833,
Mr Davlos brought Kaiulani to Wash
ington rom Kngland and the young
lady made a pronounced Impression
upon President and Mrs. Cleveland and
ail others with whom sho came
In contact. After tho pilgrimage
no more roa lioard of the young lady
as acting in connoctlon with
the poi'tlcal difficulties here.
The Princess returned to lier native
land on tho 9th day of October, 1897,
and was received with truly royal hon
ors. Since that time sho has lived as
n private cltlxen of the country and
conducted herself In such a manner as
to win the lasting respect of nil people
ot all political shades of opinion. There
have been made many proposals look
ing to placing her upon tho throne, but
she has declined nt all times to be
come associated with any movement.
Sho Is tho niece of Lllluokalanl and
cousin to Princes David and Cupid.
Alnahau, the beautiful home of the-
Prlucess, Is one of the most charming
spots In the Islands. Here has been
held the court of onr- adored by friends.
She was always kindly, always think
ing of others. She was very uctlve here
In the Red Cross work, being, with
Mrs. Harold M. Scwall, ouo of the two
vice presidents of the society. She in
terested herself at once In the Hawaii
an Relief Society's work and regretted
that sho was unable to assist In the
bazaar and luau of Saturday last.
At different times there have been
rumors that the young Princess had a
matrimonial alliance In prospect, but
these were only Idle reports, though
thero hae been a number of suitors
for the hand of ouo so gracious and
beautiful. Tho furtuno of Kaiulani Is
not a largo one. She has been In re
ceipt of an allowance from the Ha
waiian Government and quite recently
tho best men In the country to a con
siderable number petitioned Congress
to continue an allowance to ono de
prived of wealth and exalted position
through no fault of her own.
Dr. F. l. Miner gives tho cause of
death as ex Oiilhatmlc (loiter and Car
diac Uhvumatlmn. Ho says that the
really dangerous stage was noticed one
week ago today. From cither ailment
there might havo been recovery, but
the combined assault was too much for
ono never constitutionally strong.
It Is believed that the Princess for
the past few days feared that sho
would die. Sho made no deathbed
statement. What was probably her
last word was "Mother" In calling Mrs.

feeling In tho city has decidedly im
proved. It Is generally believed that the dis
astrous attempts to attack tho city and
destroy tho property, tho Filipinos
themselves being tho worst sufferers,
will prevent tholr recurrence, but every
precaution is being taken to deal with
an emergency If it arises. Tho Insur
