A QUEEN CALLED
(Continued from Page 1.)
willingly employed in the same direc
tion and so was her purse ever gener
ously open to meet the needs of the
worthy. Her moral plane was a high
and exalted and comprehensive level
and her constant aim was to have ex
emplified in the orders of the davs and
the comings and goings of all people
of the nation the national motto. She
practiced and encouraged Christian
worship and observances and her char
ity was boundless and sensible. She
was one of those rarest of women, who
endeared herself to all other women.
She deserved this, for she felt that the
women of the land could not have too
much done for them. Her mind evolved
and her largess made possible the Ka-
piolani Maternity Home, one of the
most useful institutions of the Islands.
As the consort of the late King Kala-
kaua, Kapiolani was continuously
happy and agreeable. She was a shin
ing light of the court and a most har
monious, honest and well balanced po
litical factor. There were complica
tions and intrigues incidental to the
throne atmosphere in a small country.
But no matter what the situation, no
matter what the charges or counter
charges, no matter how strained the
relations of factions, persons or par
ties, Kapiolani was always free and
clear. Whatever influence she brought
to bear in the field of the polity of the
nation, the weight of it was for re
spectability and morality and for step
ping from forlorn conditions to posi
tions of hope and in the direction of
the pinnacles of the best aspirations
within the breasts of true men and
women. At the coronation, in .the
month of February, 1883, Kapiolani
was a notable and most creditable fig
ure. She, by her correct bearing and
her exhibitions of taste and her intel
ligent appreciation or all that was
transpiring challenged the admiration
of all classes. Kapiolani was an orna
ment to the royal household. Through
her whole life she was equal to any
development of circumstances, showing
at times a marvelous strength of in
tellect and a grasp of affairs that well
qualified her for her high station. In
the social circle she was always court
ly and gracious, an adornment, to the
finer gatherings and entirely at home
in any assemblage.
The late Queen Dowager was named
for the alii who is known as the break
er of tabus against women, and whose
invasion of the domain of Pele is thus
described in Alexander's history.
"Kapiolani, daughter of the great
chief, Keawe-mauhili, of Hilo, was one
of the noblest characters of her time.
Her husband, Naihe, called the nation
al orator, was the son of Keawe-a
heulu, of Kaawaloa, where they gen
"Though at one time intemperate and
dissolute, Kapiolani became an ex
ample to her countrywomen of virtue
and refinement, and excelled them all
in the readiness with which she adopt
ed civilized habits and sentiments.
"In December 1824 she determined to
break the spell of the belief in Pele,
the dread goddess of the volcano. In
spite of the strenuous opposition of her
friends, and even of her husband, she
made a journey of about 150 miles,
mostly on foot, from Kealakekua to
Hilo, visiting the great crater of Ki
lauea on her way, in order to defy the
wrath of Pele, and to prove that no
such being existed.
"On approaching the volcano, she
met the priestess of Pele, who warned
her not to go near the crater, and pre
dieted her death if she 1 violated the
tabus of the goddess. 'Who are you?
demanded Kapiolani. 'One in whom
the goddess dwells,' she replied. In
answer to a pretended letter of Pele
Kapiolani quoted passages from the
Scriptures, setting forth the character
and power of the true God, until the
priestess was silenced and confessed
that Ke Akua, the deity, had left her
Kapiolani then went forward to the
crater, where she was much surprised
to nna Air. uoouricn, wno nau come
from Hilo to meet her. 'Mr. Ruggles
having been for six months withou
shoes, was unable to come.' On the
eastern brink of the crater a hut was
built for her, in which she spent the
The next morning she and her com
pany of about eighty persons descender
over 5UU ieet to the 'Black leclge.
There, in full view of the grand and
terrific action of the inner crater, she
ate the berries consecrated to Pele, and
threw stones into the burning lake,
saying: 'Jehovah is my God. He
kindled these fires. I fear not Pele.
If I perish by her anger then you may
fear Pele; but if I trust in Jehovah
and He preserve me when breaking her
tabus, then you must fear and serve
Him alone They then united in
singing a hymn of praise to the true
God, and knelt in adoration to the Cre
ator and Governor of the universe.
Water at JUcKrvde.
News was brought yesterday from
Kauai that artesian well boring at Mc
Bryde plantation has turned out suc
cessfully and sooner than had be?n ex
pected. Advices are to Mr. Dilling
ham and others heavily interested. The
boring is on new land for cane. At a
depth of 180 feet below sea level there
has been touched a great reservoir.
The flow is12 feet above sea level and
the water is of first quality in every
way. A test was made for salt at once
and not a trace found.
The McBryde company, by vote of
the directors, has set aside the famous
rich Lawai valley to go to settlers in
fee in holdings of about an acre each.
The idea is that these people will work
for the company. They will be given
land and houses on most liberal trms.
It is finally settled that Mr. Conant
is to be manager of McBryde planta
tion. Freight Clerk Frank C. Poor W act
ing purser of the Kinau. Purser and
Director Geo. C. Beckley is remaining
over a trip in Hilo to attend to import
ant business interests of his company
at that end of the line.
