King Kalakaua, of the Hawaiian Islands, Is Dead, He Passes Away in San Francisco, Falling a Victim to Bright's Disease—Something of His Life. STATE NEWS. Information of Especial Interest to Indianians. DIED FAR FROM HOME. SAN FRAXCISCO, Jan. 20.—King Kalakaua of the Sand wich Islands died at 11:55 o'clock a. m. at the Palace Hotel. His death w a s caused by Bright's disease. At an early hour the patient was / hovering between life and death. During the last six hours there was little change in his KING KALAKAUA. condition. He was unconscious and was expected to pass away at any moment. Religious sacrament was administered to him at midnight. Kalakaua's body will probably be taken to Honolulu on the steamer Charleston. Admiral Brown, commander-in-chief of the Pacific station, has been in town awaiting the result of the King's illness. [KuJakaua was of pure Hawaiian blood and akin to the ancient royal family of the Kingdom. He was born November 16, 1835, tho son of the chtefess Keolokaloe and Kapaakca. Kalakaua was elected Kins in 167-1 by the legislative assembly over the late Queen Emma, widow ot the late King Lunalilo. It was charged that his election was due to foreign influence, and a riot followed the announcement of the result. "The committee appointed to inform Kalakaua of his election were savagely assaulted as they attempted to enter their carriage and were driven back to the hall terribly bruised and i crippled. The mob then tore the carriage to pieces, battered Jn the doors and windows -of the Assembly building, clubbed nearly to death nine ot the representatives who were known to (have voted for Kalakaua, threw chairs, tables, and valuable documents out of the windows, and then went for kerosene to fire the building. A general scene of fire and bloodshed was certain had not the Ministers sent an urgent request for aid to tho American and British ships of war in the harbor, which was responded to by landing a force of marines that, dispersed tho rioters. This naval force restored .order and held possession of tho government buildings while Kalakaua took the oath of office in private, and the' representatives, or such of them as were not too badly injured, returned to their chamber and were liberated from their duties by tbe King. At the end of ten days Kalakaua had t!ie reins fully in hand and the Joint American and British protectorate was withdrawn. Kalakaua I. and his spouse, Kapiolani, having no children, in April, 1377, the Princess Lydia Kamalteha Liliuokalani, sister of the King, was declared by him heir-apparent to the throne. She was born' at Honolulu September 3. 1838. Sho was taken at birth to be the adopted child of Paki and Konia. two of the noblest chiefs. While at the royal school she met as a schoolmate o young man born in Massachusetts, to whom ahe was married September 16,1862. In April, 1877, on the departure of the King upon his tour around the world, she was proclaimed heir-apparent and assumed the government as regent during his absence. She filled this capacity with much credit to herself and'to the satisfaction of the people. Her .accomplishments include an excellent command of the English language and superiority as a musician. The population of the Kingdom is only about one-third that of the District of Columbia. The salary of the King is ?25,000 per year, and through appropriations for various, expenses his income is swe!l«d to about £60,000.] UPROAR IN CONGRESS. Th<j IjOglslattire.
