(Continued from Pags 1) the personal deity which guided the great Kamehameha in all his pugna cious undertakings, assuring him safe journeys acros3 long waste3 of ocean waters in his frail crafts and made his landing against Oanu's hostile forces so successful more than a cen- ! tury hgo, had come, back to hover Iroodingly over the greates. ceieora tion in honor of his memory. In short, "cutting out" the persiflage, the day was perfect. 'The crowd, filled every available foot of seaside standing room from the long wooden .pier extending, out from the Moana Hotel, to the hora of the Outrigger Club. If it is possible to pack men, women and children in that space to the number of 10,000, then that number was there. Great Masses of White The predominant shade was white. Had King Kamehameha been con fronted, at the time of his invasion, by a spectacle-, of., that character it is odds that great great warrior's pre siding deity would have taken flight ! in confusion and that the old . savage himself would have turned toll and fled out to sea as fast as his paddlers could wield their oars. The shimmer of white and the receptive attitude j of 'the jthrong would have so astonish ed him that he undoubtedly would have concluded he'd invaded a new country. Whether he would have "taken a chance" is extremely doubt ful; : -- ' ..:.; '',"'' - - '- . Kamehameha's modern 'double," being a modern man, accustomed to she wlerd rites of our so-called cIviil2ation, did : not display the- least confusion in fulfilling his part of the program, : In the crowd . of onlookers were hundreds -of tourists. . Rarely one of these was unarmed with ' a kodak. The others ran here and .there? perched on r all ' high, points, rushed out dauntlessly into the water to meet the oncoming force of spear-armed natives and it is safe to say our mod ern hero was shot fully 1000 times. But, as remarked before, t he is ' a sturdy man; accustomed to this Sort of indignity. ; ."y. -. - ', " : Risks . Much for a Picture' ' ' r ; ' Kamehameha L" knew the danger of guns -when in the hands of enemieB. He knew the world moved, well as some others day realize, the fact. He was quick to pick up new methods of warfare and to fear novel methods until he understood them thoroughly. How he would have felt, had : be seen that f rail'little. white man wad ing out fearlessly into i water to his neck, holding high above his head a little black, ominous-looking box, can be only conjectured. Thinking it an other ' form' of cannon and that the bearer intended harm, he probably would have had the intrepid bather l speared or shot at once. But the man shot out Kamehameha with per fect, safety. ' J. . Immediately after the ceremony of landing most of the crowd returned to town, though a large number gath ered on the -beach around the army of natives and were awarded by wit nessing tne hula dance. Other sports had been planned, but the chush of people was so great, the policing: facilities so Inadequate, that these were declared off. The cere mony therefore ended at It o'clock. " : At Work In the Dark. It was long before sun-up that John Wise and his assistants reached the grounds of the Outrigger club and set to work putting the final touches to the pageant which they had been working upon for weeks.! Then for the first time they realized the diffi culty of their task. The men and boys who had promised to be there for the affair failed to show up, and Wise started his lieutenants out on - a still hunt for others to take their places. The Hui Nalu jumped into the breach and filled seventeen canoes with Stal warts and the lads of the Outrigger club proved their willingness to aid, for with a coating' of grease paint, a malo and a flashing paddle, they made the finest kind of Hawaiians so far as outward appearance went. The Out riggers sent twelve canoes to join the flotilla: ; o Under the command of Kamehameha the Great, who in private life is Offi cer Palcnapa, of the Honolulu police force, the canoes paddled forth into the very eye of the morning, back of gloomy old Diamond Head, to await for the signal to return in triumph. I Hardly had the last of the canoes left j the land when the ladies who were to j play the part of wives and favorites ! of the King, arrived, headed by Mrs. iBlaisdell, costumed to the full as an ancient Hawaiian princess. Forty in Flotilla. In all there were in the flotilla about forty canoes, big and little, and as they paddled away in the gloom of the early morning each canoe was loaded to the guards. Not a phase of the old conflict had been forgotten and as many of the features that made the flotilla of Kamehameha the Great unique had been placed aboard the canoe3 as could be got together in the short time : allowed the manager? of the pageant. There were the tabu sticks, carried by the Puloulou, or cus todian of the sacred things, there were the feathered tufts or the kahilis, sign of royalty, there: were the pauas or bows, and the puas or arrows, the deadly little poisoned darts, the head3 made of the split, leg-bone of a chick en, and dipped in a brew made of a moss that grows on Maul and Hawaii and nowhere else in the islands; there were muskets that looked like they might have really made the landing with the great chter, and there was the fac simile of the cannon manned by Davis and Young, the white men ac companying Kamehameha. which drove the warriors of Kalaniknpule, king of Oahu, back from the beach and afterward destroyed them on the heights of Nuuanu Pali. Also there were slings made just as the ancient slings of the Hawaiians were made, each with its black and blessed stone, a venomous-looking little stone such as David might nave used to slay his Goliath of Gata. 1 ririse-. Tells, tke Story cf Landing. In a brief summary of the story of the landing of Kamehameha I, John Wise", tn .whose hands the entire work of preparing for the pageant lay. said this morning while he waited for the coming of the canoes: "It was In 1795 that Kamehameha landed here. He had been King of Hawaii island, and had Just proved vic tor of Maui In a hard-fought battle, near Wailuku.. Fortunately for him, he had surprised and captured the sloop Snow, commanded by the son of Captain Metcalf, of the schooner,. Eli core, and with her managed to get hold f two cannon and .a number of muskets. These won bis fight for him. -v'.-'--;" "-.,'.' -:; - "With him were his five wives and the following chiefs, all heads of dis tricts of Hawaii: Keaweaheula, repre sented this morning by Keaweamahi, the commander in chief of the army, under the king; Chief Keeaumoku, represented by Kauhl; Kameeiamoku. represented by Haumea; Kamanawa, represented by Kealohapauole,' Kalei paihole, represented by Kulewa and Keaweokahipona,' represented by. Lili kalanU Also there was Chief Keanu, a widely traveled chief, who had been in China and up on the northwest coast. Thls last chief proved a traitor to his king, quitting him on the Island of Maui and coming i on here to Oahu with five thousand of his own follow ers. Keanu's wife, over . whom the trouble Is said to have arisen, remain ed faithful to Kamehameha, and Keanu was the first, to. fall In the battle on the sands here. The white man, Toung, shot him down at the -command of the King, with the first bullet that was fired. -After the landing here the. Oahuans' ran into the mountains, frightened - by the cannon i and... the muskets," arid were, easily beaten by Kamehameha ln the fight at the" Pall that i followed." " - - -.. Kukailimoku Lands,.First. .r" i' Jnst abouUvthat time the canoes, which had been hanging about in the offing, as they say in the sailor books, began coming ; inshore. ' They, were headed ty the canoe bearing the rep resentative of the ancient Kahuna, or priest, who, sitting majestically In his seat, with red headcloth of his rank showing a vivid patch against'' tne blue iof the sea aijd the sky. canie sweeping on the sands, where . he sprang out, and slezing a handful, be gan the formal incantation of his creed, asking the blessing .- of the Feather God, Kukailimoku, or to give the translation, "Ood Who Siezed All the Land," on the undertaking of the monarch in the following canoe. liimehameha was standing, majes tic, a king in all but birth, in his place In the big double .canoe, while this was going on. When the priest fin ished his prayer and offering to the Feather God, he gave the signal and his boat swept inshore, with a rush of water, spurred by the strong brown arms of the paddlers. King Reaches Shore. ' '-:. '; After, him swept the other canoes, the whitened water flashing golden in the sun, and splashing a feathery (pray over the waving feathers, and the great yellow cloaks of the mon arch and his chiefs. 'The great peieu, or double canoe crashed against the sand with a rasping sound .that sent s shiver down the spines of the more imaginative among the crowds, the king stepped out, waded through the glittering wavelets to the beach and the pageant was over, save for the marching and counter marching beiore the winking eyes of the cameras. : It was a maze of colora delight to the eye. and appeal to the art sense: Ihis pageant of Kamehameha toe Great. That being se. it seems almost unfair to touch upon the shortcomings Inseparable from such an affair, given for the first time. That there were some such it can not be denied. More canoes were needed, and more room far, far more room. . Also, in future will it be , necessary to handle the crowds in some better manner than the slipshod, hit-or-mlss methods used this morning. It was not the fault or the police so much a3 the insurmount tble difficulties presented by the grounds selected .for the pageant. There was no room to move, and when the hula dances started after the land ing, camera men, and a few, far too few by comparison, - packed into a dense oval shaped mass, shutting out the view of thousands that stood im patient on the outer rim -unable to see what was going on. : r Already plans are being laid for next year and the undoubted success of this morning's pageant have made it cer tain that it will be attempted on a far freater scale in 1914. Said John Wise this morning after the pageant: "I am tickled at the way things went af ter all our troubles. Next year If 1 shold be in charge of affairs again, I should want to begin a montn earner for.. the work of preparing the canoes and drilling the crews. Also I 'would suggest right now, that if the pageant is given iu 1914 we give the entire historical story. Let U3 have some of the Oahu warriors on the beach, armed and dressed In strict loyalty to the costume of the period. Let there be a mimic battle, with the fjrst of the canoes, the firing of the canon snd muskets and the throw of the poisoned 'darts. Then the Oahu war riors can break back for the hills and the landing of Kamehameha can HE KEY for mm site um Senate Committee Today Rec ommends Additional Sum of $450,000 ISprcUl Slar-nulltli Cabll WASHINGTON.
