February 11, and was buried there on
Sunday. Mrs. -Ailau was one of the
best known women in the islands, hav

chiefs anl chiefesses of the island of
She was born at Ililo 67 years ago,
and with the exception of a number
of years spent in Boston completing
her education, she always resided in
the islands. She was a daughter of
Benjamin Pitman, a capitalist, who re
sided both in Ililo and Honolulu. The
Pitman home was at the corner of Ala
kea and Beretania streets, on the site
now occupied by the C. Q. Yee Hop
The Pitmans came here from Boston,
where they were well connected. Mrs.
Ailau 's father-in law also resided here
for a number of years. Her father
married the High Chief oss Kinoole,
daughter of the Hi ah Chief Hoolulu.

day. the secret dying with both men.
The body of Kamehanieha the Great
was originally buried at Kamakahonu,
Kailua. Hawaii, the grave itself beintr
known as Ahuena. When the bones
wore removeu from there, they lay in
state, with chiefs waving kahilis over
them. When many had fallen asleep,
Hoolulu and his half-brother. Prince
Hoopili. crept forward, took away the
bones, which were wrapped in an alum
la. and carried them away in a canoe.
It is generally believed that the two
men went to the North Kona coast, and
that Hoolulu dived to a submarine
cave, the location being known only to
himself and Hoopili, and placed the
royal bones therein. There has been
a common belief also that the bones
were hid in a cave in the face of the
Pali Kapuolieoua, the picturesque bluff
which overhangs Kealakekua Bay,
where Captain Cook was killed.
Hoolulu was "also a chief, who had
control of the whole of the Ililo dis
trict from the mountains to the sea,
and his two daughters, Kinoole and
Kahinu. -were called the Princesses of
Hilo. When Benjamin Pitman married
Kinoole, the Kamehanieha of that time
gave the husband the control of the
Hoolulu s father was Kameeiamoku,
one of the tabu twin princes, whose ef
figies are seen in the Hawaiian coat-of-arms.
Mrs. Ailau was educated both in nilo
and Honolulu under private teachers,
and completed her education in Boston,
where her father took his family after
the death of Kinoole.
She leaves one brother, Benjamin Fit

daughter of Mr. Hollander. Another
brother, He nry, became a captain of
cavalry during the vVar of the Rebel
lion in the United States. He was taken
prisoner by the rebels anil confined in
I.ibby Prison, where his health broke
down. Upon his release he failed rap

Mrs. Ailau was one of the brides

her marriage to Kamehanieha IV, on
