of which has been received by The Advertiser, to represent, In
an official capacity, the United States government at the funeral
services of Liliuokalani. : t ' r '.
. ' To'tfraft a resolution expressing sympathy in behalf of the
residents, of Hilo at the death of the Queen a special meeting of
the Hilo board of trade was dalled yesterday. H. A. Truslow,
manager of the People's Bank; E.T. Nichols,' manager of the
Hilo Mercantile Co Ltd., and E. N. Holmes, merchant of Hilo,
were appointed a committee of three to draft the resolution
which will be presented to Prince Kuhio. v .
' " No royal feather cloak of anpient Hawaii wil. drape Hhe body of
the late Queen Liliuokalanj, during the' period of lying-in-state,, pr
on the day when the final obsequies are held, its refusal for funeral
purposes having been made yesterday by the Bishoo Museum au
thorities. But in front of the bier the tabu stick of Kalakaua with
; the royal emblem of the Hawaiian coat of arms upon it, ha been
placed -beyond which.the public v nor even the chiefs and chiefesses

' Impressive; ceremonies according to the ancient rites for tin

chanting of the watches of kahili bearers on changing shifts every
two hours, with the singing of dirges and the Hawaiian nationa
anthem, the rhythmic movement of the kahilis over the Ixxlv am
the strict obserrance of rituals; forming a picture seen nowhere else

made , ready; for their last departure from Washin jton- Place, tlu
royal standard which had hung at half-mast tliere since the moment
f the QueenV death was hurriedly lowered and earned into tin
mansion, where, it was wrapped around the Queen's remains, an
thui the; body was carried into the church, the flag of the monarch)
of Hawaii being removed only when the Queen was placed upoi,
the bier for-the lying-in-state. .
The body was, covered with an ivory-hued brocaded silk gar
ment and rested upon a pall of yellow plush adorned with tlu
Queen's, monogram; the brilliant coloring of the pall contrasting
beautifully with, the chaste hue 'of the shrouds The Queen's conn
. tcnanc was covered with filmy tulle through which the features
were easily discernible, sliowing them in repose and yet with tlu
dominant, strength; of former days not altogether missing.

Is that this property, wa not originally'

It was not any part of her ancestral

husband on the death of bis father..
At the death of John Domini ba willed '
