Beautiful flag story, 1893.

HAWAIIAN FLAG.

On Thursday afternoon of this last week, Hon. C. W. Ashford raised a Hawaiian Flag hand sewn by some Hawaiian Ladies, whose length was 21 feet and width was perhaps 10 feet.

Before the raising of this flag upon a new Flag Pole built many feet tall, his children were called, whose ages are between ———, to name this Flag Pole and the Flag; when they were asked: What is the name of this Flag Pole and this Flag? They answered together, “Lanatila [Victory]; it was then that the beautiful Flag of Hawaii rose and fluttered in the beloved soft gentle breeze of the motherland; that Flag waves continuously upon this Flag Pole everyday. It is a true Hawaiian who has done this first, it is upland of Kalihi past the school of Kamehameha.
