Death came to Hawaii's queen, Liliuokalani, at 8:30 o'clock j
Sunday .morning a quiet, sunny, pleasant Simday' mornuig j
as calm and as peaceful as was the ending of her eventful life, i
After a night during which; she; sank ea&lyjinto the '
shadowed valley, Liliuokalani 's faintly beating Heah was" still, .
and the only queen who has ruled over a'constituted court m
territory now American had passed from the scene of her govs .
and sorrows, hendavs of power
The coming of death was almost imperceptible, so weak hadv been; th
queen for many hours, so slender the thread of life to which she sun
clung with amazing vitality'. Nrt. the slightest semblance of a struggle
marked the final moment of earthly dissolution; Those gathered at jtbo
bedside in the queen's chamber felt rather than saw the passing of -hor,
spirit ' ' h"' v ' r. :: '; :':f--y.;'-
At the moment of her death, the royal "kahilis" or tall, plumy stana

still form, as they had waved for hours. ; ' : " - :-
To the waiting city, death was an
nounced at 9 the fact being absolute
ly confirmed by watchers at the bed
side before announcement was made.
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
"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

and her, days of impotence. .
the royal sUndard at Washington
Place signaled the demise of. the
queen. 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

GOVERNOR PINKHAM EXPRESSES TERRITORY'S SORROW.
V It is with profound sadness the Governor of Hawaii announces!
the death of Her Majesty, Ex-Queen Liliuokalani, the last reigning
monarch of the Hawaiian Islands. ' j
I have been a witness of some of her sorrows. I have found her
tender, and kind, to her own race, thoughtful and helpful to others j
and a valued and appreciative friend. Her last days had been de-j
voted to aiding the Red Cross work with marked sympathy and liberal'
financial assistance. j
Her Majesty has linked-more strongly than ever, the Hawaiian
l .1 I.. il. .'I A
and American races, who win jom eacn ouier in paying ineir respects
in this her final rest.
May all the people of Hawaii join in these last ceremonies.
The Hawaiian and American flags on public buildings will be
at half-mast during the time of the lying in state and proper military
guards perform their duty.

DEAD AT ST. ANDREW'S
Out of respect to the memory of
Her Majesty, Queen Liliuokalani, a
communicant of St. Andrew's cathe

Chopin's beautiful Funeral March were
played at both the morning and even

dead was said by Rev. Canon Ault In

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
