DEATH OP KAISER WILLIAM.
By the Alameda came the sad, though
not unexpected news of the death of
the Emperor William of Germany, He
was born March 22, 1797, and had he
lived until the twenty-second of this
month would have reached the ripe
age of ninety-one years. lie was
crowned under the title of William I.,
King of Prussia, at Koningsberg, October
18, 1SG1. His career has been a most
wonderful one. Our sympathy is ex
tended to the German residents on these
THE DEBATING SOCIETY.
The Debating Society is now thor
oughly organized. It has so far given
evidence of a sensible discrimination in
selection of subjects on which to delib
erate and a degree of acumen in their
discussion, which is highly commenda
ble. We have known similar institu
tions elsewhere to acquire a prestige
which has invested their dictums with
considerable weight in the public esti
mation, and the first step towards this
end has been to open the doors and
give free access in a separate part of the
hall to the friends of the members and
the public generally. We believe if
this course were adopted here it would
be availed of to some extent, the debates
of the society would come to be matters
of public comment, and the knowledge
of the fact that the outside public were
interested spectators would impart a
greater zest to the efforts of the mem
bers than would otherwise be the case.
Trials of strength and skill of a physical
nature, such as athletic contests, are or
dinarily conducted before the gaze of an
interested public, and we can discern no
reason why contests of an intellectual
character should not also be submitted
to the popular mind. It seems to us
that if this were done they would in
time become powerful educators of tfie
popular laste, inculcating habits of.
thought and reflection.
Deal It of Luther Abolo.
Yesterday morning at 8 o'clock Mr.
Luther Aliolo, late Minister of Interior,
died of aneurism, at the residence of
Governor Dominis, Washington Place.
He had been ailing for some time past.

ernor of Maui. He was also Tax Asses
sor on the same island, and practiced
law. The deceased represented Lahaina

President of the House for three terms.
During the session of 1880 he was ap
pointed Minister of the Interior, which
portfolio he held until June, 1S87. Mr.
Aholo was a talented Hawaiian, and

about 55 years of age. and will be buried
in the Kawaiahao Cemetery.

The Emperor's Last Honrs Scene
hy his BedsiJe The Crown
Prince Starts lor
A dispatch from Berlin, dated March
9th, states that Emperor William of Ger
many died at half-past 8 o'clock that
morning. On the 8th the death of the
Emperor had been momentarily ex
pected since early morning, and around
the bedside of the venerable, dying
monarch were assembled all the mem
bers of his family except the Crown
Prince, with Bismarck, the court chap
lain and physicians of the Emperor.
Without was a multitude, standing in
the avenues leading through the grounds
to Unter den Linden a mighty crowd,
but silent, expectant, fearful for the
worst, all eager to hear the first news
which should decide between life or
death, and all breathless in the dread
that the first news might be the news
that they least wished to hear. A
platoon of cavalry was on guard about
the palace, but their task was light, as
no rush of the anxious watchers called
for check or hindrance. No disorderly
or unseemly outburst had to be re
pressed. Drs. Lauthold and Tiernann remained
with the Emperor throughout the night.
The Grand Duke and Duchess of Baden
and the Crown Princess of Sweden ar
rived this morning in a special train.
The Emperor recognized his daughter,
the Duchess of Baden.
At 12 :25 o'clock Chaplain Koegel gave
the last sacrament to the Emperor.
Shortly before 2 o'clock the Empress
and Grand Duchess of Baden were with
the Emperor. At 2 o'clock Prince Bis
marck went to the bedside and the Em
peror spoke to him. His condition was
then unchanged. The Prince left the
palace at 2:45 p. m. to attend the meet
ing of the Reichstag.
During the afternoon sitting of the
Reichstag Prince Bismarck received an
urgent summons to hasten to the palace.
He was informed that the Emperor was
dying. The doctors have now abandoned
all hope of the Emperor's recovery.
The Emperor fell into a swoon at 5
o'clock and remained unconscious until
6 o'clock. He afterward went into a
quiet sleep, which lasted until 7 o'clock.
Wine and other liquid nourishment is
administered to him occasionally.
An official bulletin issued at 9 o'clock
in the evening announced that the Em
peror lived, and that, on the whole, his
condition was more tranquil. The bul
letin reassured the people, w ho were in
tensely excited by ihe reports of his
death which were published in news
pa per extras.
This morning the Emperor tried to sit
up in bed. He shook hands with the
Empress, who was seated by his bedside,
t was unable to speak to her. The
ourage ana devotion of the Empress
are admirable. Ill and weak herself and
broken with sorrow and grief, her efforts
tjp cheer and console her husband have
I At 9 a.m. the Emieror spoke a few
'fords to Prince William alout the im
pending drill of the guards, but in a
wandering manner. Prince Bismarck
tried to speak to him, but it was useless.
The Emperor soon fell into a swoon, and
his pulse, which is usually 57, rose to
108, and he had a fever. About midday
he became conscious. At 9 o'clock to
night the people outside the palace were
wedged together in a dense crowd. The
leople refused to believe the denial of
the Emperor's death.
Berlin, March 9th. At 1 a. m. the
improvement in the Emperor's condition
continues. He is sleeping soundly and
his breathing is regular. He has taken
substantial food and appears to have a
good appetite. He was given oysters
and eggs a.id a little champagne and
sherry. His pulse has fallen from 116
to 96. When awake he is fully conscious,
showing interest in what is passing
around him. He asked the Grand
Duchess of Baden, who sat by the bed,
whether she had already dined, and
with whom, and then asked why she
had not dined with the Empress. He
expressed regret that he was causing so
At 2 o'clock this morning all was quiet
in the palace and the Emperor was
sleeping soundly. There seemed to be
some improvement. The Empress and
Grand Duchess of Baden will remain
with him throughout the night.
AN IMPERIAL DECREE.
Berlin, March 8. The following is
the text of the Imperial decree, signed
on November 17th and promulgated to
day, declaring Prince William to be the
representative of the Emperor in State
"Considering the unsettled state of
my health, which compels me to tem
porarily abstain from the transaction of
affairs, and in view of the illness and
prolonged absence of my son, Frederick
William, 1 charge Your Royal Highness
with all cases where I believe represen
tation necessary in current Government
business, especially with signing orders
without special order being requisite on
every special occasion."
THE CROWN PRINCE.
San Remo, March 8. The Crown
Prince will be taken to Germany at once,
imperative orders to do so having been
received from Prince Bismarck. The
decision was reached after a full consul
tation with the physicians. Many dis
ItThere is great excitement at the villa.
The Prince is very much depressed by
the dispatches from Bismarck, which
say the Emperor cannot live. The latest
dispatch says he may die to-night. It
was decided this evening to leave on
on Saturday morning by a special train
for Berlin. All the doctors will accom
pany the Prince, as they fear he may
have a relapse on the journey. The
Prince is playing for a tremendous stake.
If he is Emperor only for a short time
his family will be in a secure position.
If he should fail to go to Berlin Prince
William would be put in power by Bis
marck. Prince Henry of Hesse left this
evening. There was a great scene at
the station. Soldiers, officials of the
town and great crowds assembled to bid
The Crown Prince will stay in Berlin
no longer than is absolutely necessary,
going afterward to either Weisbaden or
Hamburg. The doctors are much op
posed to the Crown Prince's return to
German'. The Prince passed a good
day to-day. lie is much distressed over
the news from Berlin.
Vienna, March 8. The impending
catastrophe in Berlin overshadows every
other subject here as no event has done
since the first news of the illness of the
German Crown Prince. The newspapers
express the feeling of the people in still
hoping for the Emperor's recovery. 'The
"Neu Freie Press" compares the tragic
fate of the German imperial house with
that of Louis Quatorze, and expresses
the hope that the Crown Prince's re
covery may falsify the parallel.
Paris, March' 8.--" La Liberte" says:
Among all classes of society the fate of
Emperor William and his son is a sub
ject of most sympathetic concern. We
cannot regard as enemies that venerable
monarch sinking into the grave, or the
Prince, in the prime of life, whose exist
ence is ebbing away. We are irresisti
bly touched at their fate, and with the
sacred volume reverently exclaim, "How
are the mighty fallen."
Madrid, March 8. A painful feeling
of depression prevails on account of the
news from Berlin. Queen Christina is
anxiously looking for bulletins. She has
sent a message of sympathy to Emperor
Washington, March 8. Baron von
Alvensteben, the retiring German Min
ister, called on the President to-day and
presented his letters of recall. The
President, in closing his remarks, in re
ply to the Baron's address, said: "I
cannot refrain at this time from an ex
pression of sorrow in relation to the re
ported extremity of the illness of the
venerable Emperor of Germany, and to
indulge in the hope that he may be en
abled to recover his wonted health."
San Francisco quotations for refined
sugar were reduced c by the California
Refinery on the 8th instant all round.
The American Refinery has at this date
issued no new list, but it may be ex
pected any time. Demand is not active
in any direction, nor is there a disposi
tion on the part of buyers to order, ex
cept for daily needs. Tariff discussion
and rumors of sharp competition to be
inaugurated later in the year make
dealers extremely cautious. A cautious
policy is generally the best for interior
merchants, as good results are rarely
realized from speculative ventures. The
latest telegraph advices are as follows :
