Police Lines Laid Out
Late Saturday night. Sergeant Kel

the police lines around the Capitol
grounds and along King street, and
this aided In keeping the crowds in or
der. Early' in the morning, and until
the procession started from the Cap

lines. - ; ; ; -; :
Eleachers Filled Early
The bleachers In front of the Capitol
were filled early in the morning, and
the crowds were quiet and orderly at
air times. Detectives and police pre
vented the spectators from stepping
inside the police lines and crossing
the streets. The main gate was kept
free from onlookers, on,ly the military
officer, guards and detectives being
in attendance. Inside the grounds,
only those, societies who were to take
part in the procession, and the larmy,
navy, marines and Japanese sailors,
At every street intersection, along
King and Nuuanu streets, were sta
tioned police officers, who prevented
the spectators from crossing the
streets and. interfering with the fu
neral procession. At the entrance to
the cemetery, a special detail cf the
military, assisted by the traffic and
motorcycle squads, directed the
crowds and automobiles. All machines
were directed up NuuanuStreet to Wyl
lie, where they were parked or permit
ted to return to town. Street cars
were stopped the moment the proces
sion started, and none of the cars run
ning on or crossing King or Nuuanu
streets was operated until after the
ceremonies at the mausoleum were
Lines Laid Out at Cemetery
The instant the procession moved
from the Capitol, Chief McDuffie and
the detective squad jumped into wait
ing automobiles and were hurried to
th cemetery, where they directed the
laying out of police lines. Here those
who were not bearers of police cards
were prevented from entering.
yhen the services were finished,
the street cars, which had been wait
ing mauka of the cemetery, were
started toward town, and; the offi
cers had great diificulty in keep
ing the traffic from becoming unman
ageable. There was no undue confu
sion or congestion, however, and the
the crowds, autos and street cars
moved along regularly.
At all times the crowds showed res
pect and consideration for the police
regulations, and no unusual pressure
was necessary on the part of the au
thorities to enforce the rules.

LIME DRAW HIE GREAT CATAFALQUE
Poolas Pay Last Tribute to Queen in Unique Observance, Car
rying Out Customs of Other Days Lighted Kukui Nut
Torches Emblematic of LiliuokalanPs Dynasty
OMAGE as in the days of ancient
by the "poolas" or stevedores of Honolulu as their part in the long cere
monial procession on Sunday 204 of them.
The poolas, united as a craft into a well-knit society, paid their tri
butesto Liliuokalani as along crowded streets they drew the great catafalque
bearing the casket in which reposed the body. No section of the long parade
was more impressive than this.
With solemn tread stevedores John Nertiwa, James Spencer, James
marched through the streets of Hono
lulu to the Royal Mausoleum, Nuuanu
street, drawing by long rcpes the
somber catafalque upon which rested
the handsome koa coffin. It was a
unique, a fitting portion of the elab
orate ceremonies attending the burial
of the queen. The poolas in the lines
were all Hawaiians, members of that
sturdy race from which Liliuokalani
The great body of men was in per
fect order at all times. The poolas
were dressed in white and each wore a
small cape of red yellow, colors of
the organization that loads and un
loads the steamers that touch here.
i The leaders wore long cloaks. Sam-
uei Kipi was in cnarge or me pooias,
and was assisted by Joseph . Pua, John
Lono, Benjamin Ross, Hookani. Ka
pele Napua, Kawaipaoa, John Kapono,
Jr., and David B. Kekuewa.
Two long lines of rope, bound with
black and white ribbon, formed the
harness with which the poolas drew
the catafalque. Just before the coffin
was removed from the throne room.
the poolas formed a double line In
front of the catafalque which reached
almost to the makai entrance to the
Palace grounds, each man taking hold
of the roDe. As the coffin was car
ried down the steps, the poolas re
moved their hats and stood at atten
tion, facing the catafalque. After the
ceremonies at the entrance to the pal
ace were over, they began their steady
march to the mausoleum, slowly draw
ing the catafalque after them.
The catafalque, draped in black, and
trimmed with narrow lines of white,
rolled slowly behind the marchers, A
large canopy of black was supported
by four posts, and at the four cor
ners, on top, were black plumes. Be
fore the poolas moved out of the pal
ace grounds, torches of kukui nuts,
bound in ti-leaves, were lighted, a
final honor to the royal dead.

conveyed the remains of the queen to

SOLDIER REBUKES MAN
WHO SHOWS HIS LACK
OF PATRIOTIC FEELING
An incident of yesterday impressed
upon one young man of this city the
value of keeping his mouth shut at
critical moments hereafter, was told
to the Star-Bulletin. When the first
American flag of the procession pass
ed the bleachers, nearly everybody
came to their feet and uncovered. One
young man however, did not see fit to
either risa or uncover . and further
added to his delinquency of patriotic
feeling by criticizing a nearby soldier
for rising and saluting the colors. He
started something that came near end
Ingln a row, For his action he was
handed some large-sized pieces of log
ic that will serve him for food for
thought for some time to come.
The soldier gave him a "call" that
scared him into respectful silence

As the, crowd gathered around tho
Capitol grounds Sunday, morning only
a few seemed to notice a lonely figure
who has for years held the right to
his station near the Capitol grounds.
This was the "Statue Worshipper."
Early in the morning he stood alone
with one hand locked to the other; a
an older monarch the ' gorgeous
statue of Kamehameha L The crowd
came singly and in pairs, but the
Statue Worshipper still held his own
place. They surged around him and
almost enveloped the silent figure as
they looked toward the Capitol where
the remains of the late queen were
being carried to her last resting place.
Only once did the silent figure
glance around, and there was some
thing of wonderment in his eyes as
the crowd surged around him. - All
other eyes were centered toward the
Capitol grounds as the funeral cortege
made 'its way, but the Statue Wor
shipper continued his gaze across the
way to the bronze statue of the repre-
sentative of the first islands-wide
(dynasty of Hawaii. And when : the

KAWAIAHAo' PASTOR PAYS
TRIBUTE TO LATE QUEEN
Rev. H. H Parker, pastor of Kawal
ahao church has paid the following
tribute to Queen Liliuokalani:
"This morning's announcement of
the death of Queen Liliuokalani will
carry a measure of sadness Into al
most every, home In Hawaii. I believe
that no alii of ours ever suffered so
much of sorrow silently," said Mr.
Parker. : : ..''C,-.-'
. "No: sovereign ever took Hawaii's
throne ' with more direct and open
promises of a happy and useful career.
That career; ended within two short
years With her own downfall and with
the complete overthrow of the po
litical Independence of the Islands.'
There was a lesson in this, said the
speaker, something to cause us to ask
ourselves when we shall learn to be
come wary of, unwise counselors; of
those who have had no experience in
matters on which they oftr to in
struct us. ' .'-';V '":1i-
She will not be missed in ' any
general sense,- continued Mr. Parker,
"because of late years she has lived a
rsecluded lifer but those who were
privileged to be within the Immediate
circle of her domestic life will feel the
loss of a very lovable companion.
"Hers In these last years was a very
beautiful character, ripened ; and
sweetened through suffering. ; She
found at last the peace which' quiet
acquaintance with the will of i a be
nignant Providence assures to eyery
tired soul." ,-. ' ;. ; ; , . . Z ,

Sedate and sad as was the occasion,
colorful Hawaii remained so even In
the royal funeral cortege. The great
Impressiveness of -. the church, mili
tary and Hawaiian ceremonies atten
dant to the moving ot the queen'a
body for interment did not decrease
the impressiveness and gorgeous
beauty of the scene, r
Brilliant green, deep purple, 1 bright
red and shining yellow of the feather
ed kahilis blended into one mas3 of
beautiful coloring against " the back
ground of Hawaii's green and sunshine.-'
But so appropriate was the
coloring to the spirit which pervaaed
the spectacle that there was naught of
the ultra-bizarre in the scene hot
even in the - red-coated and yellow
caped Hawaiians In the cortege.
So distinctive 'has yellow the color
symbol of many of the Hawaiian so
cieties become during the past week
of funeral rites that the passing- of
206 Hawaiian women dressed ' simply
In white holokus, with : golden lets
about their necks, seemed deeply sig
nificant of , mourninrt even to the
"malihlnl haoles.'V the visiting strang
ers, who are accustomed to black as
the symbol of mourning. ;
SPLENDID CASKET MADE
FROM SAME WOOD AS
PRINCE DAVID'S COFFIN
The ; beautiful koa and kou ' casket
in ; which the , body of the , queen re
poses is the work of a Honolulu firm,
the Honolulu Planing Mill, and was
built under the personal supervision
of Jack Lucas.
The order was given at 4 o'clock on
Monday afternoon, and workmen la
bored night and day until late Satur
day when the casket "was completed.
The koa wood is common, but the koa
Is very rare and that which was used
on Lili uo kala ni's casket is part of the
same material as was employed when
Prince David s coffin was made. The
specifications for ' the 'prince's coffin
had been kept all these' years by the
planing mill, and ' were brought out
and consulted when- the order was
given for. the queen's coffin.' : H"
: As the great casket was carried froni
the throne room yesterday, it weighed
somewhere between 1500; and 1700
pounds. The steel casket inside the
wood was responsible for most of the
weight, which made the bearers stag
ger as they, walked. r In fact, one man
received a severe strain on Saturday
night when the casket was borne from
Kawalahao .'church to . the throne
room.; ;.: v ; v. - y - - ' '
Men were under and around the
casket as thickly as they could stand
and the task of carrying the heavy box
waa an enormous one. r ;
' Many were' the admiring comments
heard regarding the coffin as it re
posed, undraped and unadorned : ex
ceptfor Ita plates, noon the catafalque.
Withered with age, but with & tirt- ,
less and loyal spirit to her dead queen .
which age could not daunt,' one Ha
walian woman who must be nearly at f
th century mark In years, walked
from the Capitol to the mausoleum.
The age and endurance of hundreds ;"
of the Hawaiian women In the quetn's ;
cortege was a matter of admiration to I
the silent crowd of thousands, but this :
woman! aged xealr brought tears to
theeyes of all who saw her faithful- i
ness. v- -; :-' :"' " .' !
Although bent and frail ot body, and
with flesh wrinkled by many winters
and summers, her eyes reflected her ;
determination to continue until the ;
last rites were concluded. v
As her part In the impressive cere-1
mony, she portrayed a religious cus-1
torn of the early Hawaiians, perhaps j
taught to her as a child. v; ;" :
Marching like a marshal at the side !
of the kahili-bearers, andwith a step 1
