The USS Boston leaves Hawaii, 1893.

That Wicked Eel Has Left.

On this day, the American warship Boston left the harbor and the land of which it assisted in persecuting and stealing its independence with the missionary descendants from Boston. Where could its previous captain [Gilbert C. Wiltse] be resting? According to the Calvinists, he is in Heaven, and perhaps the ship will go to fetch him.

Republicans and Hawaiians, 1902.

TO JOSEPH KALANA

Mr. Editor: Please give me a column in the fearless spokesmen of the lahui.

I am very regretful should you be a true Hawaiian, being that I always see in our newspapers of the mother tongue you announcing to the far and wide of the Archipelago, “Let Us be Republican.”

Do you not know the one who overthrew the monarchy? Do you not know the “head” of those who overthrew the government? Do you not know the desire of the people you support to obliterate us Hawaiians, and that this is verified from Governor Dole’s very own mouth? Do you not know the great desire of the Republicans to limit our voting power which was corroborated by the Governor in Boston by him saying: “We demand that the whites be supported and the native Hawaiians put down.’ ‘Ke kauoha nei makou e kakooia ka poe keokeo a e kulai a kuaia na kanaka Hawaii ilalo.” Continue reading

As president of the Hawaiian Patriotic League of the Hawaiian Islands, I honestly assert from an intimate knowledge of the Hawaiian people that they, men and women, as a race and nation, are emphatically opposed to the annexation of Hawaii to the United States of America or to any other nation.
We love our independence too dearly.
JAMES KEAUILUNA KAULIA.
I, as president of the Hawaiian Political Association of the Hawaiian Islands; affirm and indorse the statement of the Hawaiian Patriotic League.
