be urged to semi a delegation of acien

to make an exhaustive study of condi

action by congress may be based." He
expressed his complete sympathy with
the project ami stated he would wel
come an opportunity to take the whole
matter tip in detail with Delegate
Kuhie in, Washington. 1
Referring to former inquiries along
this line- made here, he said while he
was commissioner of fisheries he had
sent Dr. Duvid Starr Jordan and Dr.
Barton W. Kvermann, who was then an
official of the fisheries bureau, to Ho
nolulu. The investigation made then
was the only one the government has
made, he stated, and the report of it in
three Volumes has been held to be a
work of the greatest value.

Short and Concise Account of
Life of LiliuokalanU Last
Island Monarch
. Of interest to tenrhcrs and pupils of
all Island schools will be the following
Drier anconnt or the life of the late
(jueen ldliuokalnni. It can easily be
made part of the course of study to
fftmiliarfre Hswailnn children with the
story of Hawaii 'a last Quesm -
I.lliuokalsni wns born Heptember 2,
1818, near the present site of the
Qdeen's Hospital, Honolulu. Her naire
was f.yiria -Ksmskaeha. Her- fathe'
was Kapnakeiv and Iter mother was Keo
hokalolf. ' Her sneet'iy traces back to
the foundation of the knmehameha dy
nasty sad she claimed relationship to
the royal family of the five sovereigns
of tli at name.
Lilitiokslani wns ivon away in in
fancy by her parents to another chief
tain by whom she was adopted accord
ing to the Hawaiian custom of exehaiig
ing children, observed to foster and
cement the tiea between the different
elans and chiefs. -At
School When four Years
. Wpon j four years old. Lillnokatnnl
was sent to the Rovnl School, founded
snd oaducted by Mr. and Mrs.. Amo
C, Cooke, the pupils all being- children
of the royal family and the hih chiefs.
It waa a boarding school, and here l.ili
nokalani learned English well and was
educated in tho teaching of the Chris
tisn religion. ,
Among the? royal children who were
at the school during I.iliuokslnni's time
were three children of Kinau, daugh
ter of Kamehamehn I Ixt, who war
later Kamehameha V. I.iholiho, who was
Inter Kamehameha IV. and their sister.
Princess Victoria, There were also
Principal William l.uualilo, who follow
ed Kamehameha. V ns king; Liliuoka
bird.' brother-Kalaksua, who became
tho seventh king of Hawaii r I.iliuoka
lani'a foster-sister, Rernicn Psuahi, and
F.mma Booke, who became the queen of
Kamehameha IV.
Church attendance and Christian. wor
ship were deeply instilled into the
minds of , the children at the Roya1
school., They attorile 1 church every
Sunday, accompanied by their teachers
Mr, and Jim Cooke, and occupied seatr
neT the pew of the Kinjj.
Of Uliiiokalaol's al ility ns a child a'
school and her tastes, the best descripl
tion perhaps can be taken .from he
personal memoirs., Nhe writes:
"In my school, days my facility i
rending music at sight was always rec
ognixedby my instructors.
"After lesving school my musics'
education was continued from time t
time as oportunity offered, but I scarce
ly .remember the days when it. would
not have been posniblo for me to write
either the words or tbe music for any
occasion on which poetry 'or song wr
needed. To compose was as natural te
me as to breathe; and this gift of as
t,ure, never having been suffered to fall
intjo disuse, renin ined a source of great
eifc consolation to this day.''
When Sae Met Her Husband
It was In her childhood thst Liliuo
Valaui met her. future husband, Johr
O. pominis, son of an American see'
captain. A day school for children wni
3ablisbed bv a Mr. and Mrs. John:
ston next to tbe Royal Hchool. A faigl
idobe fence separated the yards of thr
no schools." The boys of the Johnstor
School would climb the fence snd pee
over st tbe roysl children. Among their
was Doroinis and although I.iliuoka
Inni had other suitors during her girl
hood,, tbe American of her school da)
'omnnce became her husband when shi
was . twenty-four yesrs,. old. At one
time Prince William, later Kfng I. una
lilo, sought Liliuoknlani's hsud in mat
riago and at another time her alliance
with Kamehameha IV, was suggested
pominis' father, Captain Dominis
had been interested In trade in Chinf

Two days later, the American ship,
William P. Frye, bound from Seattle ,
te neenstowa with a cargo of wheat, '
waa overtaken and fifty German sea
men and one officer were placed aboard. '
They were ordered to discharge her
atgo into the sea and the raider went
on. in -her course of destruction. A
FrSnchman was sunk during the night
ini the next morning tbe raider re
turned' to the Frye, removed the nnn
and provisions, sending the Ship to tbo
oottom st nins o'clock, : v;.
VWbea the Eitel interned at New
pott News in March, 115, there were
five hundred prisoners aboard nassen- -..
(era and members of the crews of the'
destroyed vessels," said Mr. Connvy
festerday afternoon. "During the for

when the captain yelled down and in--luired
into the cause of the hilarity..

LitUa Complaint to Make '
We hd little complaint to make of '
lift aboard, for we shared, in every-
thing they ahd. In fact, it might be
said we were treated aa decVntlv ss
possible under tho circumstances.
When the ship became crowded with
women - and' children, things were not
luite so' plossunt,. unpleasant as they ' .
erei There wss a scarcity of water
ind the filth and dirt accumulated all
ver tbe ship at nn alarming rate. '
'.'The Kite! was high out of the water .
md but little fuel remained. We ex
acted her to ca'peixe almost any min
.te, but she held to her-course. ' T
inrdly believe that the rsider could
ate gone another mile when she put
uto Newport News, for she had wait

',' When we were given our freedom "
here," Cunucy concluded, "e thought
bat probably re were fortunate in
.laving met with such -an experience,''
:kiuking tbe war would last but a few
voeks lunger at the must. And, of course
nost ef us were dlsnpHiinted, for here
t is nearly three years later and the
laughter is going 011 with even great- '
r,fury. But I have been disappoint
dimany times since then, and w hen I
left Muva seventy-nine daya'ago, I felt
hst tbern was a possibility that the
