The Kings remains will be embalmed at once. While no definite arrangements have been made As yet for the funeral it is probable that services will be held in Trinity episcopal Church thursday and that the body will leave Here for Honolulu on the United states flagship Charleston before the close of the week. The next regular passenger Steamer for Honolulu will not leave Here until january 27, and it is probable that the first intelligence of the King death to reach the hawaiian people will be the arrival of the Charleston at Honolulu with the remains aboard. The question of the succession is very simple and will be peacefully settled. Kalakaua succeeded Suna Lillo the last of the Kame Harasha Dynas t y. When Kalakaua was elected he named As his successor princ Ess Liliuokala a n i i i s sister who is married to an american named John Odom 2v/v is. She is now n Regent having been appointed such just Kapiolani. Before Kalakaua sailed on his visit to this country last month. All she will have to do is to take the oath of office and be crowned As Queen. There is no necessity for any election or excitement the new Queen is partial to americans and no change in policy is expected even the present Cabinet will be retained King Kalakaua. Whose full name was David Laamea Kalakaua was born november 10, 1836, at Honolulu. was the son of High chief Kahann Kapaa Kea was of the highest lineage As Kanaka lineage goes and was More or less nearly related to several of the Monarch w to preceded him upon the throne of Hawaii. Kalakaua s Early education was obtained in the Royal school founded at Honolulu about that time by american missionaries and in that institution he remained from 1840 to 184�. acquired a fair education and his accomplishments included a Good knowledge of the English language. At the age of 14 he began his military studies under Captain Funk on old prussian Soldier. After ascending the throne he translated the German tactics with some modifications into the hawaiian language for the use of his own troops. When Kamehameha v. Died in december 1872, Kalakaua was a candidate for the Sucre Don but his rival Luna lilo made a successful Appeal to the plebiscite us the vote being verified by the legislature. Luna lilo a reign was Brief and on his death in 1874 Kalakaua was again a candidate for Tho throne. His competitor this time was Queen Emma the widow of Luna lilo but parliament gave Kalakaua an overwhelming majority�?42 out of 48 votes the election taking place february 19, 1874. The King elect was not crowned until nine years after that Date. had married in 1860 Kapiolani the widow of Queen Emma a Uncle. King Kalakaua was probably the greatest traveler of All reigning monarchs. visited the United states in 1876 and was received with marked distinction by president Grant. During his tour of the country he visited most of the principal cities. Again in 1881, he left his kingdom making a tour of the world and by ing received with Royal honors at All the great courts of Europe As Well As at the courts of several Asiatic monarchs. The object of these journeys As described by his admirers in his own kingdom was to promote the welfare of i people. King Kalakaua s last trip abroad which has ended with his life was supposed at the time or his arrival in december last to have had As an ultimate object the establishment of closer relations Between his kingdom Andt reunited states a possibly of annexation. Nothing of this however has come to the surface during his visit. During his travels in America and Europe he saw much of luxury and display which he endeavoured to imitate when he reached Home. also took kindly to some fashionable vices. The result was an Era of extravagance in Hawaii Tho principal expense falling upon americans and europeans none of the Large planters and taxpayers being a aves. Money was borrowed in Large quantities and squandered the legislature with a majority of natives voted As the King requested and under the Constitution it was easy for Kalakaua to have his Way in All things. The Cabinet however although composed of natives be Ceme frightened in time and endeavoured to limit the aggregate loan of the Empire but failed and resigned. The final result was a revolution in 1887. The White residents of Tho islands through a league of which nearly All Are members formulated a plan of action in two parts a protest and the Purchase of 1,000 rifles with plenty of ammunition. The protest insisted on a pledge that the King should never again directly or indirectly Endeavor to influence legislation and a Promise that he would restore a Large sum of Money which he had accepted As a bribe from a Man who wanted exclusive right to sell opium in the kingdom. Kalakaua endeavoured to resist to succumb was to be humiliated yet to abdicate would mean the poor House. asked the representatives of foreign Power to take charge of the government but they declined and advised him to appoint a new Cabinet and Grant anew Constitution. The King bowed to the inevitable and the new Constitution made it impossible for him thereafter to handle the Public funds and for any one not a property owner to vote for a member of either House of the legisla11116 King Kalakaua always entertained the highest respect for the United states As Well As a predilection for americans. Through this disposition on the dead Kings part this country has become by the new treaty of 1884, possessor of exclusive rights to the Fine Harbor of Pearl River in Oahu and he had frequently manifested a wish for ties still closer Between the two nations _ a big jump.
