whether the present Ministers sur
vive the King, by whom they were
appointed, or whether their term of
office terminated with his death.
The only law on which the decision
rests is Article 41 of the Constitu
tion, which read as follow:
Article 41. Tim Cabinet shall consist
of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, the
Minister of the Interior, the Minister of
Finance and the Attorney-General, and
they shall be His Majesty's special ad
visers in the executive affairs of the
Kingdom; and they shall be ex officio
members of Hia Majesty's Privy Council
of State. They shall be appointed and
commissioned by the King and shall be
removed by him, only upon a vote of
want of confidence passed by a majority
of all the elective members of the Legis
lature, or upon conviction of felony, and
shall be subject to impeachment. No
act of the King shall have any effect un
" leas it be countersigned by a member of
the Cabinet, who by that signature
makes himself responsible.
If no decision can be reached,
except by reference to the Judges
of the Supreme Court, this should
be done at once. They alone are
the last resort to settle the mean

change of Government at this time

The Masonic Service.
After the Anglican service the choir
and clergy and others, in fact all but the
chief mourners ami kahili bearers, re
tired from the Mausoleum. A few mo
ments later the Masons marched in, and
a very impressive funeral service was
performed. Mr. John Phillips as Master
read the sermon, after the Masons had
formed around the coffin. Then. Mr.
David Dayton went on with the service,
the Masons saying the responses, after
which the brothers moved in procession
round the body, each depositing a sprig
of evergreen on the coffin. The grand
honors were given three times. The
chaplain, Rev. Alex. Mackintosh .offered
up the prayer in a most touching man
ner. He pronounced the benediction,
the service ending by the singing of the
funeral dirge, " Solemn strikes the
fun'ral chime." Mr. Wray Taylor also
presided at the organ for the Masonic
service, which was most impressive
leaves wrought in f ilver which border the
upper part. Immediately Deneaui iuv. w
is the Hawaiian coat-of-arms worked in
gold and enamel, with colore red, white
and blue, and on the center of this is the
King's crest in gold. On either side of
the royal arms is a gardenia branch
containing each a large gardenia flower,
while at the top part of the branch, a
tuberose. Underneath the coat-of-arms
is inscribed, in raised letters the Ha
waiian motto "Ua mau ke ea o ka
Aina i ka Pono," (The life of the land is
established in righteousness) upon a
golden ribbon. Next is engraved
David Laamea Kamaxakapcu Maui-
NCLAM NaLOIAEUCOKALAM Lu-
Seventh King of Hawaii.
From February 12th, 1874, t January
Bom November 16ih, 1836.
Died in San Francisco.January 20th, 1891.
At the lower point of the shield is a
large gardenia, with two small sprays of
gardenia, back of which are two large
ferns, one exU nding each way around
the lower edge and corners nearly half
way np the sides of the shield. There
are alsj two small ferns beneath the
larger two. All of the ferns, branches of
gardenia, with the tuberoses are in dead
white silver, while the gardenias have
g 11 stamens.
Placed near the foot of the casket is
the handsome oxidized silver wreath
that was on the casket In which the re
mains were brought lrum iaiuornia.
This wreath is wrought into roses, rose
buds and rose vines, with a buttercup
entwined on either side. Inside the
wreath are the symbols of the Masonic
Fraternity, by whom it was given. Two
large screws of solid gold fasten the whole
to the lid of the casket.
Along the Way.
f;The procession was one of great length,
taking one hour and fifteen minutes to
pass a given point, and many of the
different delegations marched four and
five abreast, while a great number of the
carriages drove by twos. The procession
was orderly, unbroken and proceeded
with an evenness that bespoke well of
discipline of the different companies and
delegations. The route of the proces
sion was crowded by a continuous
throng of people, who viewed it from
sidewalks, verandas, windows, balconies
and roofs. At no other time during the
past history of Hawaii has been or is
likely to be for some time in the future,
such a large cosmopolitan concourse of
people assembled in Honolulu. Thus
has been the last look of the public upon
the remains of Kalaknua. They rest in
quiet with a long line of royal ancestors
gone to join the vast majority. Hawaii
has seen one of her most illustrious sov
ereigns die on a foreign shore, his re
mains suddenly brought home at a time
when her people were preparing for a
estal event, all of which preparations
were soon changed into deep mourning.
The death of Kalakaua will go down in
the histsry of Hawaii, marking the end
of an epoch that during his seventeen
years' reign has been a prosperous one.
From the time the funeral cortege left
the Palace, minute guns were fired fron
the top of Punchbowl and from the two
American men-of-war Charleston and
Mohican. Bells were mournfully tolling
throughout the city and bonfires were
burning from Punchbowl, ad ing an im
pressiveness to the solemn procession as
it slowly wended its way to the Mauso-
Singing of Dirges at the Palace.
Not the least among the attractions to
the Palace during the past two weeks
was the singing bv the native choirs in
w w w
the evenings, often till after midnight.
The songs were mostly recent composi
tions in honor of the late King, and were
sung either by a full choir of twenty or
more voices, or as solos with a chorus
from the choir. Among them was one
written on board the Charleston, com
mencing: Mourn ye sons of Hawaii,
Sad news to you we bring.
No more you'll gaze with loving eye,
Upon your generous King."
The refrain at the end of each verse,
" King Kalakaua's no more," gave it a
most melancholy finale. .
Another dirge described the sorrow
spread over the land at the appearance
of the Charleston draped in mourning,
the chorus to which touched every heart :
"His voice is hushed.
His spirit fled.
Our royal father, King no more."
The last line, in particular, was sung
with most touching pathos. Several of
these dirges were composed by those
singing them, the last referred to having
been by Mrs. Holt. Others are ascribed
to the Queen. It is noteworthy that
they take the place ot the senseless wail
ing which was heard after the deaths
of the earlier chiefs and kings, which is
seldom heard now-a-days in the city.
The casket, as mentioned in the col
umns of the Advertiser some days ago,
is made nearly all of wood, having only
the rivet3 made of metal. Tho two woods
both native of Hawaii are the koa and
thekou. Oi the former, which is the
lighter in color, the body of the casket is
made, ground the lower part of it are
two mouruuigs of kou. On each side are
three ornamental handles made of the
same wood, as are also the four corner
pieces. Immediately below the lid are
what might be termed lace mouldings
in the shape of arches. These are also
The lid comprises layers of the two
woods. The upp?r is made of koa. The
length of the casket is seven feet seven
inches and two and a half feet wide, with
a height of two feet two inches, exclud
ing the crown which is six and a half
inches high. The screws fasteningthe
lid are covered by nicely rounded caps
of kou. The whole structure contains
600 pieces of wood, and they are so well
fitted that only where the, same wood is
of a little different shade of color at the
joints can they be distinguished, and a
lolish has been given to it that makes it
almost bright enough for a mirror.
The only metalic ornaments placed
upon the casket, in which is en
closed the metalic case with the remains
as sent from California, are a silver
crown, a silver and gold shield, and a
beautiful wreath of oxidized silver. The
crown of solid silver, lined with black
velvet, is fastened eleven inches from
the shield towards the head of the
casket. Surmounting the crown is a
' Maltese cross, and both crown and
K. of P. Uniform Rank.
The P. II., Brook's Division No. 1,
Uniform Rank, Knights of Pythias, ap
peared to great advantage in their mag
nificent new uniforms; theirs were a
great contrast to the Bombre color adja
cent and along the line. The bright red
plumes on their white helmets ; the sil
ver braid on the shoulder straps ; tbe
red belt, with silver hangings and sword
tended to relieve the monotony of the
dark colors to the eye.
The Division has been in existence
only a few months ; they are all, with
the exception of two, members of Mystic
Lodge No. 2, Knights of Pythias.
Unlike a military company, all the
members wear shoulder strips, that to
the eye of a military man, t-ach member
of the division appears like an officer.
The full dress uniform, which the divi
sion appeared in, consists of the follow
ing: White helmet with nickle chain
chin strap, surmounted with red foun
tain plume; on front of helmet is a
shield in red with silver bullion braid
border, and in center of same a calla
lilv device in silver bullion. The coat is
the regular military single-breasted
frock, made from black broadcloth . A
row of nine white metal buttons fastens
the coat in front ; these buttons have on
the border raised letters the name of the
order, also a calla lily ; besides these
buttons two appear at the waist and two
on the coat tails. The shoulder straps
worn by each individual is made up like
the shield on the helmets, with the ex
ception that they are rectangle in shape.
The pantaloons are ordinary black
cloth trousers. Encircling the waist is a
red enameled leather belt, with open
calla-lily hangers, attached to wl.ich are
three chains in white metal ; the buckle
is made of the same metal, and bears
the initials "U. R." with the calla-lily
bet we n.
Hanging from the belt in the rear the
fatigue cap was worn, which added to
the beauty of the outfit; it is of regular
military shape, with silver bullion braid
across the front above the peak, above
that the figure "1," surrounded by calla
lilies. The top of the cap, which is
shown when hanging, has a blue back
ground, on which rests a double triangle
in red.the angles made by braid of silver
bullion, and in center of same a calla
lily ; underneath the double triangle the
word " Hawaii " appears in silver braid.
The sword, which was draped with
crape, is an elaborate affair. The scab
bard is made of hard white metal, with
fine scroll work of Pythian insignment
on it; the hilt is covered with black
leather, which is entwined with gold
braid. On the head of the hilt is a
knight's head covered with helmet, on
which rests a lion in repose. Each blade
has the owner's name etched on it.
On a beautiful lawn at the entrance of
Nuuanu Valley, overlooking this city,
the harbor and ocean beyond, stands the
Royal Mausoleum, erected by the Ha
waiian Government, as the resting place
of the remains of the Royal Family of
Hawaii and a few of their greatest bene
factors. It is built in Gothic style of
architecture, of concrete stone, with the
lawn handsomely laid out with walks
and studded with trees, the whole pre
senting from the avenue an attractive
A short distance to the left of the
building is a vault, constructed mainly
underground, which has been named
"The Kamelnmeha Tomb." It was
built some ix or eight years ago, as it
became nocesary to provide some other
place for the increasing number of coffins
which had nearly filled the main build
ing. A portion of he coffins have been
transferred to this largo and spacious
tomb, thus relieving ihe main building,
so that space is now provided for all the
requirements of many years to come.
Prior to the transfer of the remains of
the kings to the present mausoleum, they
were kept in a temporary mausoleum in
the Palace yard. In bold contrast with
that rude structure, it is a credit to the
nation that such a building has been
erected for the purpose, and it w iil ever
remain an ornament to the city, as long
as it stands. Few people are aware how
many coffins are deposited here. Includ
ing that of our late King Kalakaua, they
number fifty. The following may not
be a complete list of all whose remains
are in the Royal Mausoleum, as the in
formation has been obtained from sev
eral sources, nor have the dates when
they died been ascertained .
The bodv or bones of Kamehameha
the Great are said to have been deposit
ed in the caves near Kealakeakua Bay,
where those of other royal chiefs were
laid ; but as they have never been recg
nized, they still remain where first de
posited. This accounts for his name not
being in the list. He died May 8, 1791.
