Though the subject of the addres

his hearers, waa directly attributable ti

It would never fall before a foreign
foe or after clash of arras.'' If the Star

the earth, be said, -the cause would be
found in one of the three great ain
that in the past have brought about
the full of great nations. These three
sins were intemperance, gambling, and
impurity. ' . ., t ,. . "
Little of the address waa devoted to
gambling and lean to intemperance. The

the past years have brought, be could
not see why temperance lecturer" were

The great bulk of crimes' of embea-

they had become thieves.
''If you want td become a high

tlie wrong course. If you want to be
a thief, just begin to gamble."
Three Cause

Solemn and heartrending observances
marked the last step yesterday ia tb
consignment of the remain of the 1at
tueeu LmuoKolanl to their lart resting
piaee .when the pallbearer who a-trveu
at too official ceremoniea loft rock
Miauay peitoraied a similar duty yes
terday morning when tbe eaekttt wa
piast in a niche of the Katutiiia
crypt aud sealed forever with evmut
ana trowel. . N.
' for a week tbe casket had' rested
npoo a bier within the nndergroiuM
erypt ia the Boyal Mausoleum grountr,
guarded day asd night by police otti
eia and by the women retainers of tbe
former Queen." It baa never beea eus
tuuiery i., tue past to lay toe remain
Of the royal dead in the burial places
so soon after death aa ia the case t
Ulluokalani. Just a wvtek after ber
death her funeral was held. To the Ha-
a nans it is almost sacrilege to' dis
play baste in laying the remains away,
and; they feel that the aneient Oods or
Hawaii have resented thi by making
turmoil among the elements a a pro
test from the heavens.
Last Farewell
. Soon after sunrise yesterday tbe pall
bearers, accompanied by Prince Kala
nianaole, Col. (j. P. Iaukea, Joha Baker
and Charles F. ChllHngworth, together
With Mr. IaukPn, Mrs. Lahilahl Webb,
Mr. Mana, Wakeke and Myra, the lafr
ter two old retainers at Washington
Place, descended into the crypt. Fol
lowing them were Henry Williams, the
undertaker, and John Walker and his
masons. '
'Pbe bier was wung around so that
th casket could easily be rolled Into
tbe njehe. There wa wailing aniX cry
Ing among the retainers, and wh?n Jin
ally the entire casket was withfiljhc
niche, and tbe masons began their trsk
of sealing the body in, there waa a final
wail ending with heartstricken fme
well words in Hawaiian: '
Pau, Alii; Pau, I.iliuokalanl."
The niche in which Liliuokalanl's
body rest adjoins that of the late
Oovernor John Dominis, her husband,
pixectly facing the grated door to the
erypt are seen tho plates bearing the
Barries of Kalakaua and Kapiolani, his
wife. I.iliuokalani's niche is on the
Kapaakea aide of the erypt. Only
three niches remain unfilled.
Bet airier Keep Watch
The devotion of the friends and re
tainor'' of the Queen was shown by
Mm. Webb, close friend and companion
of the Queen during her years of sick
ness and up to the moment : of her
dth', and by the old retainers, Wa
'kl'kw amd Myra, who have been sleep
ing near, the erypt every night since
last Sunday. They slept on the gr:l
beneath the trees at the erni-t's en
trance, always two women, ind s-nne-times)
three, one watching during the
long hours, or taking turns, while? near
bv was a police officer on duty to gunrd
the'roynl remains from molestation, al
though the great steel doors were se
curely locked.
- With the last trowelful ' of cemont
placed over the stones the casket wa
bidden forever from mortal eyes, no -er
to be reopened by the hand of man, "
the Hawalians hope. ; '-
Tears of tbe God
Another strange link In the chain of
coincidences regarding the death and
'funeral of Liliuokalanl' which nature
seema to be supplying wa noticed yes
terday immediately after tbe niche waa
sealed ami pint as the Hawaiian cried
"Pbik Mliuoknlanl."
A finei feathery drizstle'of rain fell
a soft mantle of dew seemingly, and out
of an almost cloudless sky, save some
fleeev cloud Which were lazily cross
ing th sky above the mausoleum. For
a few minutes tbe misty rain fell and
then, faded away.-
"The gods were shedding tears over
l.HluoRalanl'a frrsve." was the sob

Maui Small Farmer's- Will ' Have
Thousands Added To Their

Reports of the conservation crops on
the Island of Maui have' been made
by F. O. Kraua, eounty agont of the
food commission for that island. Beans
and potatoes are doing well, and the
earning of tho amall farmer will be
materially increased by reason of th
"arger area planted. Hpraying of the
potato crop has had much to do with
their freedom from blight and conse
quent avoidance iof loss.
The harvest of the Kola and Vaka
wao fall bean crop is well underway
and promises much better than tbe
summer crop, the report ays. In a re
rent survey made by the county agent
it is estimated that the 1000 acres now
In tbe above crop, will yield approxi
mately a million pounds or 10,000 hun
dred pound bags, At no average value
of 8 Cents per ponnd F. Q. B. Kohului,
the crop would be worth 80,000' or 1 ,S0
per acre for the four months' crop.
The potato crop, which is estimat
ed at 300 to 400 acre, also promises
well and should yield 13,000 to, 20.000
bags if our present efforts to control
the blight are successful.
This shonld add at' least 33,P0O to
'he earning; of the small farmers of
the Kula Makawao districts, or a total
rross Income of ay 115,000.00 for the
fall nnd winter eron.
Not alone Maui County but. tie eo
tire Territory- must profit from the
prosperity of our small farmer; this
year, for whom it may be said in pass
ng, that it baa beea a (rood many
easons since a good substantial pro
fit has resulted from their labors.
, Hai'n district ' baa never presented
busier farming scene, than at' pre
-ut. A half doxen large tractors are
mt'iiiir the finishing touches on some
tight hundred acre,a to be planted in
leguminous and other feed croi
mmediately,' now that the favorable
nim have provided- sufficient mois
u" to insure vigorous germination..
The principal crops being ' planted
ire row peas, velvet beans, peanut,
"asaava. sweet potatoes and eoro. It
ir confidently expected that Maql Coun

from the mainland within a very few
year. '

'Fl
Farmers Should Breed More
Sows For Ham and Bacon
To win the war we need more meat.
To get an increased meat supply quick
ly hog' breeding must be increased ma
terially throughout' tbe eountry, and In
certain States aa increase' of from So
to GO percent in the number .of hogs
is recommended by the' I'nited Htates
Department of Agriculture.
Tbe situation is of great importance,
We must have plenty, of meat for our
armies and the 'armies' of the Allies in
the field, .and sufficient meal for our
civilian imputation and the civilian po
pulation, of the Allien at home.
To have this meat breeding animal
must reproduce themselves so the off
spring will be available for slaughter
in the future.' , ;.
Hogs can be increased quicker than
any other kind of live stock.
Therefore a larger . number of sow
must be bred now, than in recent year.
The result of the increase will be to
provide sufficient animals to make tbe
meat that ia absolutely esafentiul to
the feeding of ,our armies.
Pork can be transported more read
ily and economically to troops in tho
field than can any dther meat. Great
supplies of bacon must ro to the bovs
in khaki at . the front. Unless now a
J l"r",r numbor of W ' bred, the
amount of meaf we will require next
ye.ir will not be available-
The estimated number of hogs is 4.
000.000 less than it. wa a year ago in
this count Mr:' and in the face of thi we
need more hogs than v(er before. How
can we get tiiemf By breeding sows
at once. ' ' ' ..:
The exportation of pork products has
increased since the war began and will
continue to increase during the length
of the war. The foreign countries are
devotinjr their farming energies to food
and feed rotber than livestock produc
tion, but they most" have meat an 1
thev must get a large part of this up
p)y from us, . .., i '
During the last three months . tbe
nrice of hog in. the United States bos
been, on an average, more than twice as
much as the average price for the fiv
years from 1911 to 1915. I i view ot
the large crop of feed stuffs In sight,
however, it Is believed tbst farmers will
s-e the wisdom of taking every reason
nble stri to. iorrense the supply of
hogs and hwr prnr'ip'ts.
