of construction the stress comes In a

The Princess KntulanI has been laid
to rest. In the Mausoleum where lie
the remains of so many of her royal
house, her body was yesterday placed
beside that of her mother.
She died at the height of the terrific
rainstorm of a week ago. The day of
the funeral broke with the rain, which
had been Intermittent throughou: "tho
six days of her lying In state, still
falling In torrents. But toward 30
o'clock In the morning the sun broke
through the clouds, and from then
until the last of the thousands who fol
lowed her to the grave or paid the re
spect of their presence at the funeral,
had returned to their homes, the ilouds
respected the occasion. Until nightfall
there was no rain.
All day Saturday the remains lay In
state at Kawalahao church and thou
sands took a last look at the well re
membered face. At midnight the girls
of Kawalahao seminary sang several
selections In the church.
The funeral was set for 2:00 o'clock
p. m. Long before that hour the street
in the vicinity of Kawalahao church
began to fill up. The entire commu
nity, augmented by hundreds from the
other Islands, began to wend its w-y
toward the church or take position
along the line of march of the funeral
procession. The organizations which "
were to be In the procession were early
and promptly In the positions desig
nated for them. The hearse, drawn by
230 Hawallans, uniformed In while
trousers, blue Jerseys and white nats,
and wearing yellow capes, was drawn
up King street to the church at 1:00
o'clock. The Second battalion United
States Volunteer Engineers marched
from their camp and formed in bat
talion front on the mauka side of King
street, between Punchbowl and Rich
ards street. The First Regiment, Na
tional Guard of Hawaii, marched from
tho armory up Hotel street to Punch
bowl street and formed facing tho
church on Punchbowl street, makal of
King. The blue jackets from the Unit
ed States ships Scindla and Iroquois
took position on King street to the
right of the Engineers. The various
civic and Hawaiian societies and the
pupils from the various schools and
colleges took position on the makal
side of King street. Inside the church
yard were the carriages for the fam
ily and friends and the officials who
were to follow the hearse. On King
street, Walkikl of Punchbowl, hun
dreds of private carriages were In
Long before the funeral hour people
began going to the church, but though
the 'doors were kept open there wns no
unseemly crowding. The public re
spected the occasion, and there was no
difficulty experienced In keeping the
sents reserved for special persons. At
no time was the church overcrowded.
The scene about the catafalque was
mucji the same as on Saturday. The
catafalque Itself, placed just In front
of the pulpit, was covered with a roy
al purple pall of velvet, and another or
yellow made of lltmas. The
white casket was almost burled in flo
ral pieces which kept coming In up to
the last moment. On either side of the
casket six kahili bearers wearing yel
low feather capes waved their kahili
with rythmic movement. On each side
of the casket large royal kahilis on koa
staffs were placed, two large white
ones at head two smaller white ones
at the foot, and between them others,
some black, some black and gold and
some of other colors, stood. At the
head of the coffin were lighted candles
in a silver candelebrum. In the aisle
near the head of the casket were two
large kahilis of Hlma and ferns sent by
Prince Dnvld Kawananakoa.
The pulpit was covered with Ulma
leis. The choir and the chnncel rail
were banked with flowers and ferns,
Hlma lets being prominent.
The ushers were Edumund Stiles,
George E. Smithies, Edwnrd Dowsett,
Carl A. Wldemann, Christian C. Con
radt, Llonlel Hart, J. O. Carter, Jr., J
O. Spencer and J. W. McGulre. Seats
were reserved on the left of the cata
falque for the president and cabinet,
the justices of the supreme court, the
Judges of the circuit court and other
American and Hawalan officials.
In tho body of the church seats were
reserved for the consular corps, which
was present In Its entirety, members
of the house and sennte, and others
prominent In tho community. On the
right of the pulpit were, the ushers. On
the right of the casket were the
mourning party, Including Governor A.
