Zachary Pali Jr. dies, 1919.

MY CHILD, ZACHARY PALI JR., HAS GONE.

ZACHARY PALI JR.

Mr. Sol. Hanohano, Editor of the Nupepa Kuokoa, Aloha kaua:—Please allow me in your boundless patience an open space of our tireless pride to carry this sad news all over the islands so the the multitude, the family and friends living from where the sun appears to where the sun sets at Lehua.

On the 9th of July of this year, at 5 o’clock a. m., we met with a letter informing us that our child, Zachary Pali Jr. had gone on the road of no return. Auwe, how painful and sorrowful, and we did not see how he looked when the beloved body of our dear child was left in foreign lands, at Chicago, Illinois.

Our beloved child was born in Kaunakakai, Molokai, from the loins of Mrs. Rose Pali Kamohakau, in the year 1897, July 22, and he spent 22 years, 7 months, and 17 days old breathing in the cool and pleasant air of this earth, when his life spirit give by God glided off, leaving his body for the bowels of the earth; for the body of man is a bit of dust, and dust returns to dust.

On the 9th of May of this year he left his friends, and left as well his parents and family, who are mourning and heavyhearted.

May beloved child left his homeland, and went with his musician friends on the 8th of December 1916. My dear child and friends went around different cities totalling 125, and went back to Chicago, Illinois, leaving his cold body for the bowels of the earth. Auwe, how regretful and saddened I am for my child, my dear child of my youth. Auwe for my beloved one!

God blesses us all, and it is He who will lessen the sorrow and sadness that weighs upon us. Let us give much glory to God, for it is He who creates and He who takes away.

With much appreciation to the Editor and the workers.

We with aloha.

ZACHARY PALI PAHUPU,

Mr. Sol. Hanohano, Editor of the Kuokoa, Aloha oe: Please extend your patience in allowing an open space of our tireless precious one, and it will carry around the sad news to all the islands of Hawaii nei, and the family, the associates, the friends, and the laborers from the appearing of the sun at Kumukahi to the taking of the sun at Lehua.

On Saturday, July 5, between the hours of 2 and 3 occurred the accident at work under the supervisors, those who built the church of Baldwin at Paia, Maui and the church of the Church of the Later Day at Laie, under those supervisors. [There might perhaps be things left out from the original.]

John Kahawaiolaa was born in Hanamaulu, Kauai, on the 28th of February, in the year 1889, and he was 30 years, 4, months, and 7 days old; and he left behind his birth mother [luaui makuahine], and his sisters and one older brother grieving with heavy heart for him.

The words of the Great Book are realized: dust to dust, and the spirit to the one who created it.

In closing these bemoaning and heavy thoughts for my beloved younger sibling [pokii], I ask that the ohana, friends, coworkers, and bosses of our beloved younger brother who left this life behind, to take our boundless thanks for all of your gifts of flower lei to honor the remains of our beloved pokii, and for your meeting with us at the funeral, and may God help us all, amene.

We, the family.

GONE ON THE PATH OF NO RETURN IS MRS. EVELYN PIHANA LOAAOLE

Mr. Solomon Hanohano, Aloha kaua:—Please allow me a little space of our pride, which will flash quickly the parcel of tears placed above so that the many friends of my dearly beloved wahine who has gone on the road of no return will see, as well as the end of it all.  To all from the great, wide Hawaii, island of Keawe all the way to Niihau, the island that snatches away the sun, Mrs. Evelyn Pihana Loaaole has gone, just as the Holy Book says,…

MRS. EVELYN PIHANA LOAAOLE

…the life of man is but a puff of smoke which appears and disappears, it is God who giveth and He who then taketh away. Blessed be his name.

After being ill for four days, my dear wife left me, her kane, and our hanai child. On the 27th of Feb., she was taken to the Queen’s Hospital by the doctor, and that evening at 7 o’clock she grew weary of this life, and her spirit returned to He who created it, and her body went under the care of Silva, and on the first of March her body was taken out for the family, the acquaintances and friends of my dear wife to view.

I, her husband, give my thanks to all the family and to the association, Ka Hale o na Alii o Hawaii, for your helping me from the watching over the body of my wife; and to the friends who came and stayed awake through that night with us, and also for the gifts of flowers.

Please accept this expression of thanks, and may the Lord bless us all with aloha.

Me with sadness,

CHARLES MAKEPA LOAAOLE,

and the Ohana.

Famous singer, John Sumner Ellis, passes on, 1914.

VOICE OF SINGER FOREVER STILLED

John Sumner Ellis, Who Made Hawaiian Melody Popular on Mainland, Called by Death.

(From Thursday Advertiser.)

Following an illness of nine months, John Sumner Ellis, known as Hawaii’s premier tenor singer, died Tuesday afternoon shortly before five o’clock at the home of Deputy County Clerk Eugene D. Buffandeau, 1205 Alexander street, his brother-in-law.

Ellis was a victim of tuberculosis, which he contracted in the East. He…

JOHN SUMNER ELLIS

…returned to Honolulu three weeks ago with the avowed intention of seeing his beloved island home before he passed away. His wish was gratified to the extent that he died in his native land, surrounded by the friends of his boyhood.

The funeral will take place at ten o’clock this morning from the undertaking parlors of H. H. Williams, Fort street. Ellis’ remains will be buried in the family plot in Nuuanu cemetery.

Ellis was born in Honolulu on April 11, 1877, and would have been thirty-seven years of age on April 11 of this year had he lived. He was the son of the late Charles K. Ellis, who was at one time connected with the old Honolulu Iron Works, and Nancy Sumner Ellis, and a grand nephew of John Sumner, Honolulu’s well known pioneer.

Mourning his loss and surviving him are his wife, who was Mrs. May Barnard, and who married him in Chicago in 1909; his six-year old stepdaughter; William Sumner Ellis, a brother, and also a well known singer who resided now in New York, and Mrs. Victoria Buffandeau, of Honolulu, a sister. He also leaves a fourteen-year-old son who resides in San Francisco with his mother, Ellis’ divorced wife. Willie Davis, of Honolulu, is a cousin of the deceased.

John Sumner Ellis was educated in St. Louis College of this city, where he early made a mark as a singer. He was a member of the college band and after leaving school joined the Royal Hawaiian Band under Capt. Henri Berger. Ellis will be remembered as one of the foremost players with the Maile football eleven in the nineties.

Ellis was a member of Ernest Kaai’s well known musical organization when it first started out. He left the Islands on May 30, 1905, almost nine years ago, with “Sonny” Cunha’s Hawaiian quintet for a tour of the mainland. When this organization returned to Honolulu Ellis remained on the mainland, singing in vaudeville in the East. He was employed for a long time by the Hawaii Promotion Committee. He sang in grand opera shortly before being attacked with the disease which finally put an untimely end to his promising career.

He was possessed of an unusually sweet tenor voice wherever on the mainland he sang Hawaii’s plaintive airs he immediately became a favorite. Ellis was instrumental, probably more so than any other Hawaiian singer, in popularizing Hawaiian melodies on the mainland and especially in the east. He was attractive in appearance, well mannered and readily made lasting friends. With his passing away Hawaii has lost a son who was a credit to her, both at home and abroad.
