THE FUNERAL SERVICES.
Promptly at 2 o'clock yesterday af
ternoon the funeral services of the
late Queen. Dowager Kapiolani began
in Kawaiahao church. The building
was crowded to its utmost. In the bal
sxmy many people were standing and
it one time it was feared that a section
would give way under the weight. The
Mlecorations anDeared as bright' and
beautiful as when they were first put
-up. The flowers and kahilis attracted
;the attention of everyone, - and there
vwere many warm words of praise for
.hose who had accomplished the work.
Shortly before 2 o'clock the "clergy
ot the Anglican church entered. Mr.
J S. Fitz led the way. After him

Rt. Re Bishop Willis, , with Rev. V.

immediately took, their places about

Scarcely had his last word been
spoken when Wray Taylor touched the
keys and the sweet music of "Nearer
My God to Thee" fell upon the ears of
the expectant audience. They knew
that for the first time in many months
it was to be their privilege to listen to
Hawaii's n favorite songstress, Mrs.
Annis Montague Turner. Their expec
tations were realized, for as the singer
first raised her voice in the melody of
the beautiful hymn the listeners all
knew that all the former sweetness
and expression were there.

At a given signal the kahilis were
raised by the bearers, the clergy
formed in order with gleaming crucifix
before, the pall bearers assumed then
burden, and the mortal remains of the
late Kapiolani passed throuch the
portals of historic Kawaiahao. The
casket was deposited upon the cata
falque, the kahili bearers ranged
themselves on either side and the pro
cession started. '

COLUMN OF HONOR.
The formation of the funeral pro
cession, under the direction of Maj.
George C. Potter, of President Dole's
staff, began at 2 p. m., just as the start
was, made with the services in the
church. The street scenes witnessel
on the occasion of the interment of the
ering there were thousands of people
from all over the district, from Waia
lae, EwaWaianae, Waialua and Koo
lau. People had come In numbers
from the other Islands, and were anx
ious to take part In the ceremonies in
honor of the dead alii. The crowds
about the church were dense an hour
before the doors of the old edifice were
opened. When it was made possible to
gain entrance, all the space within
was quickly filled. This made scarce
ly a sign of diminution of the throng
without. It was a warm day. Thoso
who could find the shelter of the trees
were glad of the protection of the
shade, but thousands stood uncom
plainingly in the blazing sun.
As aides to the grand marshal of
the procession there had been ap
pointed Capts. Pratt -and Wilder of the
President's staff, and Lieut. Wright, of
the mounted reserve. These men
with J. W. Kaulia and others who
shared in the responsibility or the
movements of the large bodies in the
procession, performed their duties ad
mirably. It was because of this that
there was no confusion, and ihac the
column was formed without inUhap.
