SAN FBANCISCO, Jan. 21.—The bodj of the late King- Kalakaua was embalmed Tuesday night and the remains were ..placed in a metal casket, hermetically sealed and conveyed to the mortuary chapel of ^Trinity Church, where they will be g-uarded by a detail from the United States army forces here. The remains not .lie in state and will <*pred as a trlb'b from a man who wanted exclusive right to sell opium In the kingdom Kalakaua endeavored to resist; to succumb •was to be humiliated, yet to abdicate would mean the poor-house. He asked the representatives ol foreign powers to take charge of the Government, but they declined and advised him to appoint a new Cabinet and grant » new constitution. Tilling bowed to the inevitable and the new constitution made it im- pogsibie for li!m thereafter to handle the public funds and for any one not a property-owner to vote for a member of either house of the Legislature. King Kalakaua, always entertained the Wghest respect for the United States, as well as a predilection for Americans. Through this disposition on the dead King's part, this country has become by the new treaty of 1884, pos> sossor of exclusive rights to the fine harbor ol Pearl river In Oabu, and he had frequently manifested :i wish for ties still closer between the two nation*.

At 1 o'clock Thursday afternoon the funeral services will be held at Trinity Church. The remains will then be escorted by United States troops, Second .Jlrig-ade' of California National Guards and various Masonic bodies to the wharf, where they will be officially received by Rear Admiral Brown and conveyed on -board the Charleston, which came -down from Mare Island Tuesday. The Charleston will sail for Honolulu at -i. o'clock Thursday afternoon. Colonels Me- Farlane and Baker and the King's per-, sonal attendants will accompany the' • remains. The question of the succession is very simple and will be peacefully settled. Kalakaua succeeded Sunalillo, ..the last of the Kamehameha dynasty. 'When Kalakaua was elected he named as his successor Princess Liliuokalani, his sister, who is married to an American. named John Odomi nis. She is now reg-ent, having- been appointed such just QUEEN* KAPIOLAXL before Kalakaua sailed on his visit to this country last rqonth. 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. 'Her successor will ,be the Princess Kiiiulani. . daughter of the late Princess Likilike, and is now heir apparent; being- still in England completing her education;., .She is a girl of 16. Although there is'.talk here of a probable revolution those who know' the': islands best say it is not likely there will be any trouble. The: only man. who would cause a disturbance is Robert TV'ilcox, a half-caste, who. led the previous revolution. He will be -provided with a good official position and nothing more will be heard of him. The new Queen is partial to Americans and no change in policy-is expected. Even the present Cabinet will be retained.' [King Kalakaua was probably the greatest traveler^of iill reigning monarehs. He visited the United States in 1876 and was received with marked'distinction by President Grant. During his tour of the country be visited most of the principal cities. Again, in 18S1, he left his kingdom, malting a tour .of the world and being received with royal honors at sill the great courts of Europe as well as at the courts of several Asiatic monarehs: The object of these journeys, as described by Ms admirers in his own kingdom, was to promote the welfare ofTiis people. King Kal'akaua'S last trip abroad, which has ended with his life, was supposed at the time of his arrival in December last to liave had as an ultimate object the establishmentof closer relations between liis kingdom and theUnited States —possibly of annexation. Nothing of this, hoV- ever, has come to the 'surface during als visit. £iigl:tml Experiences u Thaw, but Freer,, ing Weather Still Prevails cm the. Con- tiiieiit—French Churches May Be Opened to Shelter the Toor. PARIS. Jan. 31.—It is estimated that 50,000 persons have been thrown out of employment by the severe weather, arM that the total loss to France in wages, the stoppage of trade and the blighting of 'crops will probably reach 50.000,000 francs. Figaro .makes an appeal to the churches to keep their doors open all night, and to take other steps necessary to .transform them into night shelters for the homeless poor of Paris. All the hospitals and "infirmaries .are crowded. The administration has placed the dead wood in the state forests at the disposal of the poor. V'EXXA. Jan. 21.—Several trains and snow-plows are stuck fast in snow near the Gumpoldsldrchen. The passengers •were compelled to leave the cars and wade through the deep snow to the nearest station. Numerous fatalities due to the exceedingly rigorous weather are reported from all parts of the country. They include cases of men being frozen to death vdth their horses , while driving. LONDON, Jan. 31.—The .latest reports from all parts of England show an average rise in temperature of 2ft degrees, the mercury now standing at the highest point it has reached since November, A southwesterly gale prevails "on-.the Scotch and Irish coasts. Eain is falling in all parts' of the Kingdom. On the continent the thaw is less decided. .

Two shepherds who were out with their flocks in the hills near Casares and Alusia had barely time to take refuge in a cave when the storm became threatening. They were already nearly. frozen with cold, when they reached the cave: Here they remained without food, or other covering than their scanty attire for three days, until rescued Tuesday by a 'searching party. One died-j soon as he was-brought out to the air. The other may survive, but it is doubtful. At! Medina Sideona a hungry wolf chased a child in the very heart of the village, and was only driven away when a number of people rushed to the rescue. Packs of wolves are roaming through the more populated districts of Andalusia, and are almost as familiar as dogs, but seldom daring to attack human beings.

Hotel Murders His Landlady and Kills Him»clf. Fhrpr,AY. O.. Jan. 21. -At 3 o'clock Tuesday afternoon the inmates of the Wickham House here were startled by a shot up-stairs ami an instant afterward the dead, hody of Mrs. D. M. Austin, wife .of the proprietor, rolled down the steps, covered with blood. Almost immediately another shot was heard and it was found that Wharton Sharkey, a boarder, had put a bullet through his head, dying--instantly. . The double tragedy aroused intense excitement. The cause is a.mystery. It is said that Sharkey owed the house considerable money and;->that Mrs. Austin may have asked him for it, enraging him so that he shot her in a mo- meiit of frenzy. Both victims were about '30 years old and .came here from. Bradford,, Pa,, • two years ago. Mrs; Austin leaves a husband and three children. Sharkey was an oil-well driller and unmarried. TWENTY MILES OF'FLAME. Durlng^his travels In America, and Europe lie saw much, ol luxury rmd display, which he' endeavored to Imitate when .he reached home. He also toolc Wndly to some 'fashionable vices. The result was an era ol extravagance In Hawaii, the principal' expense falling upon Americans and Europeans, none of the' large planters and taxpayers being natives. Money was borrowed in large^tjuantltise and squandered, the Legislature, with amajprity of natives, voted as the King requested; 'and under the" constitution it was easy for Kalakaua to have-Ms way in all things. The Cabinet, however, although composed of natives, became frightened in time, and endeavored to limit the aggregate loan of the empire, but failed and resigned. The flnal result was a revolution in 1887. The white residents of the islands, through, a league of which nearly all are. members, formulated a plan of action in' two. part's—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 re- store.a large sum of money which he had ac- Two Rivers Covered with Oil Arc .Fired ami Much Property ifl Destroyed.
