With becoming ceremonies the funeral
services of tin* late King Kalakaua were
conducted yesterday afternoon at Trinity
Episcopal Church. For the first time in the
history of the United States a King had died
on the soil of the great American republic,
and it was considered fitting that the body
should be given every honor commensurate
with the Importance of the occasion.
Representatives of the Federal, state and
Municipal Government vied with each other
in making the scene one long to be remem
bered by those who wi*jgssed it, while the
Knights Templar, of wfiich the King was a
conspicuous member, paid their last tribute
of respect to his memory.
__ It is safe to s.iy, in fact, that no funeral in
San Francisco ever attracted more universal
attention or was conducted with more pomp
and splendor. liver, thing contributed to add
to the public interest, and the people of Ha
waii may well feel proud of the splendid
tribute paid to their dead monarch. '
A LARGE GATHERING.
Long before the hour announced forthe
holding of the services people gathered by
thousands, until the street i.i front of the

. church was jammed for blocks with a strug
gling, jostling, swaying mass of humanity, a 11
eager to witness the singular spectacle pre
sented by the burial of a King.
So great became the press that the police
were compelled to maintain at least a show
• of order, and it was with the grpatest diffi
crlty thai the steps leading to the church
weii ; t clear in order to allow a passage
way sot those who desired to enter. By dint
of mm exertion, however, this was effected,
and thus-, fortunate euougti lo De possessed
. of tickets of admission to the interior of the
church succeeded in making their way in,
slowly at firs-, but in ever increasing num
bers, until the large auditorium was com
' pletely packed.
. Inside the church but little attempt at
decoration bad been made, the chancel alone
having been beautified for the occasion. The
mellow light that stole in through the stained
glass windows lighted up the Interior but
dimly, aud revealed a scene that was at
once impressive and solemn in its very sim
plicity. Back of the bier, which stood in
center of the chancel, two large silken flags,
the one of the United .States and the other
the royal banner of Hawaii, hung side by
side in graceful folds, while in front cf the
elevated platform a row of tropical plants
in boxes extended from side to side, the dark
green of their glossy leaves standing out in
bold relief against the red, white and blue
tackgrouid. Palms and ferns were pro
fusely distributed about the platform, and
at the head of the bier, elevated so as to be
plainly within the view of all, was a huge
crown of white and purple chrysanthemums
emblems of purity and royalty.
SENT BY THE NOBLES.
Co ns; icuous, however, in all the array of
plants ai.d flowers was a large floral piece
of peculiar beauty sent by the Nobles of
th*- Mystic Shrine. It represented a largo
panel, resting upon a green easel, and bear
ing in letters of violets, upon a field of white
tuberoses, the word "Islam," while below,
worked also in violets, were the facinieter
aud crescent, symbols of the order.
Slowly the spectators entered, and nearly
an hour was consumed in filling the audi
torium. Shortly before 1 o'clock ex-Mayor
Pi ml, clad from bead to foot in severe
black, entered quietly by a side door and
passed to a seat well forward and near the
center aisle. A moment later he was joined
by D. J. Staples, J. B. Stetson and C. B.
Stone, close upon whose heels came Ad
miral Gnome Brown, accompanied by Cap
tain Bemy of the cruiser Charleston, Flag-
Lieutenant Dyer and Lieutenant Blow,
their brilliant uniforms lending color to the

scene. Very few were yet in the seats, and
as Senator A. P. Williams, Morris M.
Estee, C. F. Crocker, Dr. Woods, T. J. L.
Smiley, Thomas O'Brien and other well
known men passed in from time to time
they instantly attracted the attention of

A few minutes after 1 o'clock Golden
Gate Coniinaiidery, Knights Templar, un
der command of Colonel Edwards, entered
in a body, and in column of twos passed
down the central aisle. At a signal they
toak their seats to the right, and fifty
swords rung upon the floor of the church as
they settled into their places. As a token
of mourning they hold their white-plumed
bats upon their right shoulder.
The crowd now rapidly increased in num

hour for the services had arrived. Scarcely
had the sound died sway when the organ
pealed forth -the sCaina of Beethoven's

COVEKED WITH FLAGS.
The casket containing the body of "lie
King was one of the most elegant c 'En
able in the city, being made of the best red
cedar, with copper-metallic lining. The
handles were of oxvdized silver, Inlaid with
gold, and the whole was finished in the
highest stylo of the undertakers' art,
the work of Messrs. Cowen & Co.,
who were the funeral directors. It
was placed upon the bier In the center
of the chancel and was completely concealed
from view by American aud Hawaiian
flags tastefully draped together, while upon
them rested a large pillow of white chrysan
themums and eallalilics— the offering of
Mrs. Herman Oelriclis.
When ail were seated the choir sang the
burial psalm, followed by the well-known
hymn, " Jestisalcin the Golden."
Rev. E. B. Spaulding, rector of St. John's
Episcopal Church, then advanced to the
front of the platform and read that portion
of the burial service from the twentieth
chapter of First Corinthians, beginning with
the words: "Now is Christ risen from the
nn. reed's address.
At the conclusion of the reading the choir
sang "Asleep in Jesus," and Key. j. San

When the minister ended his short hut
earnest address the choir sang "Rock of

the creed, followed by a brief benediction.
'Ihe buoy was then removed, and the cor

OUTSIDE THE CHURCH.
Battle of flio Police to Clear Streets and
Sidewalks and streets in the vicinity of
the church were becoming crowded to an
alarming extent when a squad of fifty po
lice, under command of Captain Douglass
and Sergeants Birdnall , M Barter, marched
up Post street. Then began the battle to
keep the sidewalk immediately in front of
the church, also the street, clear.
The police formed in line just in front of
the sacred ediliee and thon marched to the
south side of the street,' driving the specta
tors back on Union square. Another north
ward sweep cleared the. street and sidew alk
in front of the main entrance to the churcu.
Officers were stationed in lino along either
side of the steps and out to the edge ot the
sidewalk. Captain Douglass stood in the
center between these lines and was soon
joined by Chief Crowley.
The spectators pushed their way toward
the building where the remains ot the de
ceased sovereign lay in state. Soon the pi
lice were re-enforced by a squad of fifteen
mounted men under Sergeant Spillane. The
mounted officers quickly cleared the street
of pedestrians and prevented further conlu
sion by not allowing vehicles to pass over
Post street between Powell and Stockton.
Everything was in good order and the street
perfectly clear, however, when the car

discontinued to allow the admission of the

There weie about ItiJO men in the funeral
cortege, but their slow march through the
streets attracted more attention and a greater
number of spectators than bad any previous

It was a sorrowful yet picturesque scene.
With slow tread two troops of [Inited States

commaudery of Knights Templar, three
regiments of tho Second Brigade. N. G. C,
and a battalion of anotlier marched with
arms reversed and in platoons of twelve

street and down Market to East, space to
view the procession was at a premium.
Every inch of the sidewalks was occupied.
and thousands looked from windows, door
steps and housetops. It was with consider

spectators from invading the streets in order
to obtain a nearer view of the casket con
taining the monarch's remains.

given part of it, and was told to call for the
remainder' in fifteen minutes. Just before
the expiration of that time a young man,
who had evidently overheard the conversa

question and nothing more thought of the
matter un'.ll the arrival of the regular mes

It is supposed the stolen package consisted
of about sixty letters, containing from
$100,000 to $150,000, mostly in drafts, checks
and other non-negotiable papers.

New York, , Jan. 22.— The Commercial
Bulletin says: Since the beginning of the

that Chicago : and , other . Western '.'centers
would sooner or later be drawing upon New

fruits, peaches and 'apricots in particular.
Judgiug from the reports as I to the position
of the supplies and their distribution In the
West more goods will be required there
should the demand continue re as
good in the near future as it has been the
past two or three weeks. Up to the present
we do not find that the Windy City mer
chants have made purchases here, nor that
anxious Inquiries for goods have been re
ceived from that or other Western points.
It is related as a matter of some interest in
this connection that Chicago brokers have
samples of the goods held in the East, and
buyers no sooner express a desire to pur
chase than the brokers report that they are
overwhelmed with offers.

JUSTICE IN ALASKA.
Criminals Left . Unpunished Owing to Lack
of Funds to Prosecute.
Washington-, Jan. 22.— From the follow
ing communications it would seem that jus
tice by jury trial in Alaska is a very expen
sive luxury. Attorney-General Miller is lv
receipt of a letter from Marshal Porter at
Sitka, saying that the trial of Murderer Clark,
who killed Agent George Hemingway of the
Alaska Commercial Company, takes place
shortly, but siibpenas caunot be served for
lack of funds for the transportation of wit
nesses. It becomes necessary, therefore, for
the Government to furnish a revenue cutter
for the transportation of witnesses. He
urges on Congress the importance of imme
diate action. He says there are many re
volting murderers at large, and the citizens
are entirely dependent uion Congress for
protection to life and property.
Territorial Attorney Johnson indorses
these recommendations and says twelve
witnesses will be required at the trial of
Clark and it will cost about SIOOO for each
transportation via Sail Francisco, so It
would be economy for the Government to
furnish a vessel. Judge Bugbee also in
dorses Mr. Porter's letter.
Attorney-General Miller says £15,000
should be appropriated annually in order to
cover the 1500 miles between Sitka and
Secretary Windom transmits these com
munications to Conuress and concurs with
the recommendations therein contained, and
says that the vessel should sail from San
Fran cisco not later than March 15th next.
The documents were referred to the Com
mittee on Appropriations and the sugges
tions will probably be carried out.

Berlin, Jan. 22.-In the Reichstag to
day, B.irth, a member of the Deutsche
Freisinnige party, moved to repeal the pro

Boetticher said that despite the increased
stringency of measures taken in America to

Schmidt, of the Freisinnige party, urged
the necessity of supplying the working
people of Germany with American meat,
which is considerably cheaper than German
meat. Broemel, of the Deutsche Freisinnige
parly, held that it was unchristian-like to
make the people's necessities dear in this
barbarous manner. Yon Boetliciier further
said the English and American people did
not eat raw meat such as was consumed in
Germany. The Keichstag then adjourned.

eogaee actively in work during the present
session of Parliament. It is claimed that a
motion in regard to the Administration
Crimes Act, made by Paruell at to-day's
session of the House, cuts the ground from
under McCarthy's feet as obtaining prece
dence over McCarthy's motion concerning
the trial of William O'Brien.
Dublin, Jan. 22.— Express to-day
announces that Parneli, O'Brien, Dillon and
McCarthy have simply come to an agree
ment in regard to maintaining the status
quo until the next general election.
New Yokk, Jan. -The Herald's Lon
don special says: Parneli, when questioned
to-day as to whether he expected good re
sults from O'Brien's and Dillon's efforts,
was very reticent, saying that the matter
had passed out of his hands. It is believed
that a settlement will bs effected. After the
Hartlepool victory, Gladstone cannot hesi
tate about giviug the assurance demanded
by Pnrnell. Sexton said privately yesterday
that, there was substantially a settlement.
It is believed that McCarthy has already
obtained from Gladstone the assurances-that
Parneli requires. Harrington and John
Redmond went to Bouiogtie-sur-Mer again
to-day at the request of O'Brien acd Dillon.
Their visit wlil' probably bring the situation
to a close.

j The Flection of Furness Declared to Be the
Greatest Victory Since 1886.
London. Jan. 22.— Gladstone has tele
graphed a reply to a correspondent at
Hartlepool, who wired Gladstone his con
gratulations upon the victory of the Glad
stonlau candidate as follows: "The election
is, from the time aud circumstances, by far
the most important siuce 18S0. The limits
of a telegram preclude giving my full mean
ing, but all must see the simple figures of
the poll reduce to dust and ashes the declar
ations of Lord Salisbury, Sir Henry James.
Goschen and tho Duke of Westminster
upon what they call 'recent events.' "
The Daily News, commenting on the vic
tory of Furness in the Parliamentary elec
tion in Hartlepool, says: It is the most
splendid victory since the general election.
The Chronicle claims the election for the
labor unions, the leaders of which had told
the members to support Furness because he
had taken a pledge to employ only union
labor, while Gray, his opponent, had re
fused to take the pledge.
The Times says the election at Hartlepool
reveals a danger that the Unionist should
never lose sight of. ■ •
The .Standard says; Though it is no
guide as to the result of a general election,
the election in Hartlepool serves to give a
point to Lord Salisbury's warning.

WHO IS HEDENBERG?
! A Chicago Man Who Attempted to Organize
a Silver Pool.
Washington, Jan. 22.— The special com

amined Senators Stewart, Teller and Wol

E. X. Hill, a lawyer, said that one J. W.
Hedenberg, a real estate man from Chicago,
came to him last spring. He talked over
the silver legislation, and showed what he
said were certificates for 1000 ouuees of
silver each, suggesting that witness could
sell some on a margin of $25 a thousand
ounces, and would be paid ono certificate for
every four shares sold. Witness said lie
might sell some to his business friends, but
Hedenberg interrupted him with the state
ment that he wanted the certificates sold to
members of Congress. Witness did not want
to go into the thing. He had no knowledge
of auy certificates being offered to members
of Congress. Witness had written some
essays on bimetallism which had appeared in
the Congressional Kecord.
Dlngley asked if they were delivered as
speeches, but witness laughingly answered
thai he did not know what was done with

organized that held 1,000,000 ounces of sil
ver. Hedenberg wanted witness to see soma
Southern members, ami said he did not
want free coinage, but the House bill.
Witness told Hedenberg he was a free coin
age man, and if he knew of a Congressman
going the other way he would expose him. i
Hedenberg, in reply to a suggestion from
witness, that lie (Hedenberg), coming from
Chicago, ought to see the Illinois members,
replied that he would look after them, and
wanted witness to see the Southern mem
bers. After the statement that witness was
a free coinage man, however, Iledeuberg
