WASHINGTON, Feb. 28. Although
the Cabinet was in session today nearly
an hour longer than usual, it was said
that nothing of special Interest was
developed. The question whother the
troops now preparing for Manila
should bo transported from San Fran
cisco or from tho East by way of the
Suez canal and tho Red sea was dis
cussed, and the decision was reached to
ship them from San Francisco, via

INENT IN THAT PORTION OF NUUANU CEMETERY ON THE WAI
KIKI SIDE OF THE AVEUNE. WITHIN WILL HE DEPOSITED THE
REMAINS OF PRINCESS KAIULANI.)
WITHIN THE TOMB.
(This Paicr, February 1C, 1831.)
On a beautiful lawn at tho entrance
of Nuuanu valley, ocrlooklng this
city, the harbor and ocean bsyond,
stands tho Royal Mausoleum, erected
by the Hawaiian Government, us the
resting place of the remains of the
Royal Family of Hawaii and a few of
their greatest benefactors. It is built
In tho Gothic stylo of architecture, of
concrete stone, with tho lawn hand
somely laid out with walks and studded
with trees, tno wnolo presenting irom
tho avenue an attractive appearance.
A short distance to tho left of the
building Is a vault, constructed mainly
under ground, which has been named
"Tho Kamohamcha Tomb." It was
built some six or eight years ngo, or
it became necessary to provide some
other place for tho increasing number
of coffins which had nearly filled the
main building. A portion of tho cof
fins hnvo been transferred to this largo
and spacious tomb, thus relieving tho
main building, so that spare U i,ow
provided for all tho requirements of
many years to come. Prior to the
transfer of tho remains of the kings to
the present mausoleum, they were kept
in a temporary mausoleum In the pal
ace yard. In bold contrast with that
rude structure, It Is a credit to the na
tion that such a building has been
erected for the purpose, and it will ever
remain an ornament to tho city, as
long as It stands. Few people are
aware how many coffins are deposited
here. Including that of our late King
Kalaknua, they number fifty. The fol
lowing may not be a complete list of
all whose remains are In tho Royal
Mausoleum, as tho information has
been obtained from several rources,
nor have the dates when they dlod,
The body or bonos of Kamehameha
the Great ore said to havo 'been de
posited In the caves near Kealakekua
Bay, where those of other royal chiefs
were laid, but as they have never been
recognized, they still remain where
first deposited. This accounts for his
name not being In the list. Ho died
