HOMAGE AT BIER OF HAWAII'S QUEEN
Visiting Japanese Mission
Takes Beautiful Wreath to
Kawaiahao Church
Formal homage was paid to Ha
waii's queen yesterday by Viscount
Ishii and the members of the Japan
ese mission, who, accompanied by
.Consul General Moroi, General-John P.
Wisseri General Sam. I. Johnson, N.
G. H.; Colonel C. G. Woodward, Colo
nel 11. C. Merriam, Colonel L. L. Dur
tee. Major I. A. Correll and Major L.
W. Redington, visited Kawaiahao
church at 3 o'clock in the afternoon.
A magnificent floral wreath, the of
fering of the Japanese consulate, was
laid at the foot of the bier by Viscount
lshii, after which the distinguished
visitor and his party were shown 'O
seats that had been specially placed
lor them inside the circle that is tauu
to the common people.
As the distinguished visitors entered
the church grounds a detachment tf
the National Guard presented arm,
and the Itoyal Hawaiian band, also sta
tioned inside the grounds, began play
ing the funeral march from "Saul," the
signal for all inside the church, to
stand. )
Colonel C. P. I.aukea, wearing the
decoration of the Order of the Rising
Sun, met the Viscount and his party
at the door and acted as escort, the
regular ushers standing like statues
along the kahili-guarded aisles, their
yellow feather capes over their black
coats adding -the one touch needed to
make the beautiful church interior ex
otically perfect.
As a mark of respect to the Japan
ese empire, the Order of the Crown,
with which Liliuokalarii had been dec
orated, lay on the feather cape that
covered the casket, and with it gleam
ed the Order and Cordon of King Kala
kaua, a Hawaiian decoration which
had been sent in exphange for the Or
der of the Crown.
As th presentation .of the wreath
was made Viscount Ishii, and the
other Japanese of the parry, stepped
backward a pace, making a deep obei
sance, and the American military of fi-
cers inclined their neaas. Aiier me
visitors had all been seated the con
gregation sank back into the pews, the
band finished the funeral march, and
a, Hawaiian woman, one of the watch
ers, began' a low chant, while all the
kahilis around the bier moved in per
fect rhythm to the measured time oi
the chant. While this chant lasted,
and so long as the'distingulshed visi
tors remained, the church was tabu
for the outside world,, no one else be
ing allowed either to enter or leave
the building. y j
The visit lasted only about twenty
minutes, then the party, led by the
Viscount, arose, facing the bier, made
another obeisance, and, still escorted
by Colonel Iaukea passed slowly dawn
the aisle, between the sentinel kahilis,
and out of the church. With their ap
pearance on the vestfoule the band be
gan: "Queen Emma's Funeral March,"
by Captain Henry Berger, while the
detachment, from the Natonal Guards
on duty in the grounds, stood at mili
tary attention, a position they held un
til the last of the party had passed in
to the street

Memorial exercises for the lata
Queen Liliuokalani were held at the
Territorial Normal school this morn
ing. A large picture of the queen,
surrounded with wreaths, was placed
on the platform. A double quartet of
Normal school students sang "Lead,
Kindly Light," and one of the students
recited verses in honor of the queen.
The Rev. Akaiko Akana gave an
address in which he spoke of the
broad-minded vision of the queen in
regard to educational matters, of her
strong will and determination to do
what she considered right, of her ten
derness arid interest- in the people of
Hawaii, regardless of race. He em
phasized the fact that with the queen's
death the connecting link with oia
Hawaii wa severed, but that the new
Hawaii must have leaders. He urged
the Normal school students, in going
out as leaders in the community in
which they live, to consider the great
example of Queen Liliuokalani, and
have a real and vital interest In edu
cation, a strong purpose and determi
nation, and a deep interest in the vary
ing races in Hawaii. .
The exercises closed with the sing
ing of "Aloha Oe" and "Hawaii Pono!"
by the Normal school chorus.
Later in the morning the senior
class and the eighth grade joined the
students of other schools, and march
ed to Kawaiahao church. There they
paid respect to the memory, of Queen
Liliuokalani by placing wreaths on the
bier.

lievered by Charles G. Heiser, Jr.,
yesterday at the Rotary club lunch
eon in the Commercial club. He dis

KING HALAKAUA'S
BIRTHDAY TODAY
With Queen Liliuokalani, his sister
and the last of the Hawaiian mon
archs, lying enshrouded on her bier in
the old Kawaiahao church, kamaaina
Honolulans today are quietly observ
ing the birthday of King Kalakaua
one of the saddest anniversaries the
territory has ever, known. With the
death of Kalakaua and the ascendancy
of Liliuokalani to the throne, Hawaii
became engulfed in that historical
period of chaos which finally ended
with the establishment of a republic
and the'subsequent annexation of the
islands to the United States.
The old throne room in the former
palace, once the rendezvous of royalty
and where King Kalakaua, known as
the "Merry Monarch," and his sister,
Liliuokalani, both waved the royal
scepter, is soon to become the scene
of the final episode in the picturesque
drama of the Hawaiian monarchy, as
the late queen Iwill be buried from
there on Sunday.
The miniature boat races, always a
feature of Kalakaua's birthdays, have
been postponed thlsear. A year ago
the birthday anniversary of Kalakaua
was observed with a ball at tlte ar
mory, but this year the day will pass
without festivities or rejoicing. In
the olden days the king's .birthday was
one of the gala days of the year, Kala
kaua having received at the palace
and at his bcathouse in the harbor.
It was on a visit to San Francisco
that death laid him low, and it was a
terrific shock to the people when, in
January, 1891. the U. S. S. Charleston
passed around Diamond Head with the
ensign at half mast. The remain?! of
the king were aboard and the rejoic
ing of the people was suddenly turned
to mourning. There was no cable in
those days, to spread the news of the
monarch's demise.
Tonight, perhaps, some of the songs
which the king loved so well will be
sung by the sweet-voiced Hawaiians.
