MARBLE HEADSTONES AT LOW COST

LIKE SLATE [PAPA?] HEADSTONES.

The person whose name appears at the bottom wishes to announce to the Hawaiian people that he has acquired material for Monuments and Tombstones which he wants to sell for a good price, from $8.00 up.

I can send images and prices of the tombstones to people on the other islands, should they ask me, so that it can be done without the large expense of travelling to Honolulu.

J. D. LANE.

Engraver of Marble Monuments of all types. Bethel Street, Honolulu.

Iolani Palace, 1882.

THE NEW PALACE.

The sum of the people’s money that was spent to build Aliiolani Hale and for the purchase of the parcels of land for its grounds totaled $135,000! The losses for the Hawaiian Hotel [Hotele Hawaii] and its grounds were $116,000. However, if these two sums of money were added together, then it would not equal the costs to build the new palace, which is known to exceed costs of $300,000. We believe that there has been misconduct and impropriety in the construction of the new palace.

We wish that our many solon [solona] and the wise men of this legislative session will investigate thoroughly where the money of the people was spent rashly.
