[Chronicling America only has newspapers up to 1922. I am not sure how much longer Hawaiian-Language articles appear in the Maui News, but it is pretty interesting to see that they did appear until at least 1922. Here is a political song written for Keoni Waika, the renaissance man, John Wise.]

Bonine brings movies to Kalawao and Kalaupapa, 1909.


On Thursday evening last a new miracle happened at Kalaupapa. On that evening R. K. Bonine, the moving-picture expert, threw his first picture on the screen before an audience of a thousand lepers, and there was a great gasp of awed astonishment and keen delight when the pictures really moved and did things. Cheers, tears, gasps and soul-satisfying laughter greeted the pictures in turn, and when the reels put aside for the first entertainment had been exhausted, the people of Kalaupapa and Kalawao, in a body, cheered their thanks to the man who had brought these wonders to them and to those in Honolulu who had through their contributions made these miracles possible.

It was a great day for the people of the Molokai Settlement, and it was a great day for Bonine. To the lepers had come a new marvel, greater far than the sight of the mighty White Fleet, which maneuvered past their shores last summer, greater than anything that had come to them. No place the world over have motion pictures made such a hit. Continue reading

Donations to the Red Cross by the patients and residents of the leprosy colony, 1918.


There arrived from the leprosy colony of Molokai, a total of two-hundred and forty-eight dollars, in the form of a donation for the Red Cross [Ke'a Ulaula], given by the patients and some others of the colony, from twenty-five cents to twelve dollars.

In the list of the donors to the Red Cross is Dr. Goodhue and his family, along with J. D. McVeigh and his family, and also those who reside there while working in the leprosy colony.

This sum of money to assist the Red Cross was sent along with a document explaining the reasons that this assistance was given by the patients, so that someone reading it would not be left without knowing that the assistance is given by them sincerely for the benefit of the American soldiers fighting the war for the good and the victory of the land. Here below is the agreed upon resolutions for the assistance of the Red Cross.

“Whereas, the United States of America is now at war, and soldiers are being injured on the battlefield, they should receive care and proper medicine; and

“Whereas, there have been established a number of collections for the Red Cross set up all around the United States, and every Territory, and the other areas under the protection of the United States; and

“Whereas, we are a part of the United States of America, and the majority of us here are patriotic citizens;

“Therefore, we will not fall back from showing our patriotic spirit, and with true patriotism, we give what we can for the donation to the Red Cross.

“And, let it once again be remembered that there are a great number of us being helped here stricken by disease who receive assistance from those outside of the Leprosy Colony; let us show that there are those of us here who can give and that we are happy for this fine opportunity to assist those injured fighting for our land, in this great war of the world.”

Those afflicted with leprosy forsaken by the church? 1873.

Statement on Leprosy, and Resolutions

Adopted by the Hawaiian Evangelical Association, Honolulu, June 10, 1873.

The disease of leprosy in these islands has assumed such an aspect, that it becomes our immediate duty to determine our course of action as pastors and teachers respecting it.

This loathsome, incurable and deadly disease has fastened upon the vitals of the nation. Although we hope and believe that it is not yet too late by the use of sufficiently stern and vigorous measures to dislodge its fatal hold, that hold has become fearfully strong. The numbers already known to be victims to leprosy, the still larger numbers who are undoubtedly infected, the steady, remorseless activity with which it is extending, all tell us with ghastly assurance, that unless remedial measures are used more effective than have been hitherto applied, our Hawaiian people will become in a very few years, a nation of lepers.

Do we consider what this means? It means the disorganization and total destruction of civilization, property values, and industry, of our churches, our contributions, our Hawaiian Board and its work of Missions. It means shame, and defeat, and disgraceful overthrow to all that is promising and fair in the nation.

We are on the brink of a horrible pit, full of loathsomeness, into which our feet are rapidly sliding.

The chief cause of our peril, is not, that God who has stricken our nation with this awful judgment, has placed no remedy within our reach. He has given a remedy, which the experience of wise men and wise nations has made certain. Nay, He has laid the rule down in the law given to Israel by His servant Moses. It is this; strict, thorough separation from us of all infected persons, not only of established lepers, but also of all who are reasonably suspected.

If we obey God’s leadings and follow this rule, our nation will be saved. If we do not, we are doomed to an early and shameful death.

Our great peril is from general ignorance on this subject among the common people, and their consequent apathy and perversity. They refuse to separate their lepers from them. They eat, drink and sleep with them. They oppose their removal and hide them. They listen to the voices of evil-minded men who raise an outcry against the King and his helpers, when they strive to root out the evil thing.

We therefore as pastors and teachers, as an association have a pressing duty. It is this, to teach and persuade all the people to obey the law of God, and separate the lepers from among us, and while striving to comfort and strengthen with the love of Jesus the afflicted hearts of the lepers and their friends, also to teach every leper who cleaves to his people and refuses to go away, that he is sinning against the lives of men and against the law of God. Therefore,

Resolved, That every Pastor and Preacher of this Association be instructed to preach frequently, and particularly to his people, upon the duty of isolating their lepers, especially as illustrated by the Mosaic law in the thirteenth chapter of Leviticus; also, that he use diligently his personal efforts to induce the people to perform this duty.

Resolved, To set apart the 18th day of July next as a day of Fasting, of Repentance before God for our sins, and especially for those sins which promote the spread of this disease, and also as a day of Prayer to God, to strengthen the King and officers of the Government in cleansing the land of this disease, and to turn the hearts of the people to help in this work of saving the nation.

Resolved, That the names of all the members of the Association be signed to this paper, and that it be placed in the hands of His Excellency the Minister of the Interior, who is ex-officio President of the Board of Health.

Detailed list of patients being examined at Kalawao, 1909.


To the Editor of the Kuokoa, Aloha no: Please allow me some space on your deck along with the captain’s passengers travelling aboard your ship (newspaper) and it is for you and your sailors to [anybody care to offer insight into this nautical allusion? "a nau ame kou mau luina e kulai pau iho i na nihoniho o ke ku'e keleawe o ka enekini uwila..."] and to send knowledge from Hawaii, the island of Keawe, all the way to Kauai of Manokalanipo.

Here are your loved ones, a husband, a wife, a child, a grandchild, a daughter, a grand, a great grand; and they turn towards home, to see and to smell once again the cool air of the land (should they return); the fish is an uku, a fish of Kahoolawe.¹

O Reader, shown will be the names and the years they have lived here in the land of the sick without counting the months and days.

Therefore, the number placed before [after] each name is the total years lived here in the land of the sick and the land where they were taken from; for the names without numbers, they don’t want it to be known, and some have not met with the writer; the writer put great effort into completing it, but he could not for it was a big task.

At 11:30 at night on the 13th of October, 1909, the S. S. Likelike arrived at the restless harbor of Kalaupapa; the wind was calm, but the disembarking of the passengers was still rough, they being J. D. McVeigh, Superintendent of the Leprosy Colony; Dr. Wayson; photographer Charles W. Weatherwax and Kikila the secretary of the doctors.

On the 14th, at 9 or so, the doctors W. J. Goodhue and Wayson arrived with the Secretary J. K. Keliikuli, interpreter at the dispensary; and the examination of the patients began; and to Kalawao went the honor of the first examination, as follows:
