Just at 9 o'clock the tolling of bells in lofty towers sent over the Sabbath calm a serene and ; mournful note, a musical and inarticulate dirge. Just previously the royal standard at Washington Place, residence- of tho queen for many years, bad been flown at half-mast. "The queen is dead," went the word throughout Hawaii as soon as the bells began their solemn proclamation. Jt was flashed by wireless from island to island of the group over which she had j once ruled; it was flashed oy wireless and cable to the mainland, where great newsagencies took it up and flung it far and wide. Thousands of newspapers today all over tho world have told their reader3 of the passing of Liliuokalani, last queen of Hawaii. Those at the Bedside Surrounded by those who were near est and dearest to her during the last years of iier life, and attended by her physician. Dr. W. C, Hobdy, Liliuo kalani breathed her last. There was no struggle against tne claims oi death. The queen's last hours were as ' peaceful as her life had been eventful Present at her beside when the en J came were Prince and Princess Kala nlanaole, CoL and Mrs. Curtis P.. Iau kea, Mrs. Lahilahi Webb, Dr. Hobdy and two faithful retainers, one of whom, Wakikikl, had been born In the queen's service, and had never known any home other-than that of the queen. The other retainer's name is Onaala. i Immediately following .c-e doctor's statement that life was one,. Rev. Leopold ' Kroll of the Hawaiian con gregation" of St Andrew's Cathedral, and Rev. Henry H. Parker, pastor, of Kawaiahao church, were notified, and the bells began their sad toiling 79 times they tolled, telling to all Hono lulu that Queen Liliuokalani, 79 years old, was dead. . " 'While the bells were tolling the royal standard of Hawaii was raised over the room in which the queen lay, and its silken folds floated out on the breeze, showing the red crown In the center, before it was dropped to half mast. Immediately following this aU the flags throughout the city were dropped to half-mast, where they will hang until the last funeral rites are over next Sunday. The flags at the capitol went to half mast almost upon the moment when KAHILI-BEARERS TO BEGIN VIGIL AT KAWAIAHAO CHURCH; PLUMES READY Watchers By Bier Will Sing Dirges and Chants, Some of Which Were Composed By Late Queen Night and Day Ceremony Will Go Forward As soon as the queen's body is placed in .Kawaiahao church the long watch of the kahili-bearers will begin. From that moment' until the final ob sequies begin in the throne room next Sunday the royal plumes will wave ceaselessly over the queen four on each side of the casket and one at the head. All day yesterday and all night rev erent fingers were busy remaking the kahilis, which always, after they are used, are taken to pieces and packed away to keep them safe from moths. There are 19 of these royal kahilis, and to make them anew is no small task, for every feather must be handled separately and receive its own fasten ing of silk which binds it to the stand ard Mrs. George Smithies, daughter of11 Maj. S. ,Nowlein. one of the barrack guards of the old regime, is superin-J tending thft remaklns of the.s kahili i and no one is chosen for this work except those thoroughly familiar with kahili making, for it Is a task that re quires a deftness and sureness of touch only a few possess. To remake the aaiu "P""". en mree umes lor kahilis 76 yards of the vari-colored j ward againalways three times, al India silk ribbon were required.

Major Francis J. Green, aid to the governor, was waiting in his of- f ice for news of the death, and im mediately took suitable action. - For months the queen has been very ill. For three months according to Mrs. Lahilahi Webb, wife of Captnia 1UH. Webb, the queen has been help less, having no use of her body from the hips down.V The mind, too, that great mentality which marked her through air her life up to three years ago, was weakening. There were times when she did not know where ge was, or that the house she lived in was hers. For the last two weeks her end has been - almost hourly ex pected, :v so that when the summons came yesterday morning it was re ceived by those who loved her with a resignation born of despair. Last Hours Easy "She Is not suffering at all," said Dr. Hobdy Saturday afternoon. "She lives on, and will breathe longer than j she could if she -were-, conscious of any pain, or of any disturbance of mind. Nothing troubles her now. All that is left of her Is just a breathing body, a heart , that beats because there's noUi- ing mental ; to disturb Its rhythm When the heart wears out, that w ill be the end." And It was, thus the queen died. : ; ' .-.: - The first . visitors to arrive after the royal standard was raised by Col. Iaukea were several young chiefs, who had come to pay their respects to the living queen, and stood silent and awed in the presence of death. W. O. Smith of the Liliuokalani Trust came next, and soon the grounds were filled with sorrowing Hawaiians, and others who came, not but" of curiosity, but out of respect for the dead, and sympathy for the living. Later,' act ing under orders given by Major Green,- guards were placed at the gates, and only those who could show reason for their coming were admitted.- ' "Some of the Hawaiian people may not understand the reason for the guards at the gate," said a woman last night, who is herself of high Ha waiian birth. "That is why, perhaps, there is not more wailing. Some of our, most beautiful singers among the older people may feel timid about passing the guards, not understanding that it is not the Hawaiians; who love their queen, but the street idlers who might come in out of curiosity that the guards would keep;out." devotion, and the ceasclessness with which they are kept in motion is ex-! pressive of the uninterrupted contin- j uity of affection and respect for the departed. Not for one moment does ; the waving cease. The long funeral i vigil Is divided into watches of two hours each, with 12 kahili wavers for each watch. Twelve are chosen, in order to have at hand substitutes if suddenly some watcher should find his or her strength fail, for not one of thi kahilis must be motionless, and the vigil is taxing on human strength. Noj word Is spoken by the watchers, no sound is made, except when the voice is lifted in one of the sad "meles" or chants. Except for the waving of the kahilis no one moves. That is why the strength may fail a watcher, and Is -then that another Is ready at ""V. w . T '.r? .

This morning, very early, Japanese Consul-General Moroi, attended by his secretary, called to offer the sympathy state his intention or earning toaay news of the queen's death to the Em peror of Japan. Immediately upon the announcement of the death of the Queen, Reverend Henrv Bond Restarick.

Mahoe of Waialua, Mrs. James Auld, Mrs. Paaluu Phelps and Mrs. E. Faxon Bishop.

ANDREW'S Out of respect to the memory of Her Majesty, Queen Liliuokalani, a communicant of St. Andrew's cathe dral, the Dead March from Saul and Chopin's beautiful Funeral March were played at both the morning and even ing services, and the prayer for the dead was said by Rev. Canon Ault In the morning and BishopRestarick in the evening. At the morning service Canon Ault said: .- - -. "Heretofore, when Hawaii has had to give -up one of its rulera the gloom that has enshrouded the islands with the wail, 'The King is dead has been shot through with a ray of light by the immediate shout of 'Long live the King!' This time there is no gleam to lighten the darkness. The last monarch of all the Hawaiians is dead. jere can be no successor. Therefore, let us all earnestly pray for the com fort of the souls of alf Hawaiian peo ple, now made desolate by the death of their beloved queen." ' ' PRINCE KALAKAUA WOULD HAVE SUCCEEDED QUEEN Since the' death of the queen the question has been asked as to who, were Hawaii a monarchy today, would have succeeded Liliuokalani on the throne. During the illness of the queen - Prince Kalanianaole would have been regent and, upon her death. Prince Kalakaua, son of the late Dav ing Kawananakoa, would have been proclaimed king, with Prince Kalan ianaole continuing as regent. Prin cess Kaiulanl died in 189S. ; leaving next in line Prince David Kawunana koa. Upon hi3 death, Prime Kala kaua followed in v.'cccssion. ' - Tuesdays evening. Music by Dude Miller.
