they were being carried to the King's
table. At this luau each and every
clan was represented, and their rank
shown by the feather leis, capes and
tapa pa-us. Never since has there been
such a display of rare royal feathers
and sweet-scented pa ns which were
worn over dresses.
This was the occasion when many
ladies were asked to come forward and
take their proper places, their foreign
husbands being omitted from the invi
tations. The popular High Chief Kala-
kaua (afterwards King) being the
King's chamberlain at the time, and lie
explained matters very satisfactorily to
the husbands. ;
The ladies marched in double file, fol
lowing the chiefs of their various clans.
The line of march was from Helumoa,
the present Seaside Hotel grounds, to
the Liliuokalani home farther along
the beach, where a large tent had been
raised. Under this tables were laid and
spread with maile and anapuhi leaves.
There were no dishes or food upon the
tables. As each chief and his or her
clan and retinue passed under the lanai,
each person placed her dish or calabash,
in proper order on the tables. The
tables were set in a few minutes, an
interesting process to the duke, who
sat with his Majesty, Kamehameha V.
The King, duke ami suite and chiefs
took their allotted places ami watched
with interest the seating of the chiefs
and the members of their clans, not a
break being noticed. Three pretty girls
were selected to wait upon the duke,
these being Sally Tripp, Mary Ann
Bush and Evelyn Townsend.
At a short distance from the seats
of the King and duke, Makua, the
famous hula dancer of that day, danced
alone before the distinguished guest
and his Majesty, to the accompaniment
of a chant by two men with their native
