William H. Bailey donates grand clock to Kaahumanu Church, 1884.

A Generous Gift.

On the 7th inst, Mr. W. H. Bailey formally presented to Kaahumanu Church of Wailuku, a valuable Seth Thomas Tower Clock for the tower that has lately been erected on that building. It is of the Hotchkiss patent, strikes the hours and runs eight days. The dial is six feet in diameter and can be seen from a long distance. While Rev. Keaweamahi was pastor of the church, the members were very zealous in collecting a fund to erect the tower, which Mr. Bailey was cognizant of, and to encourage them, promised to give them a clock when they had completed the tower. He has now fulfilled his promise, and the people of the town, as well as the church members, are happy in the possession of a good timepiece which repeats the hours through the day and night. The trustees of the church thanked Mr. Bailey on behalf of the church and of the community. Mr. Bailey replied that he felt under obligations to the people of Wailuku, and having lived most of his life there, remembered the old edifice which was now replaced by the handsome structure wherein they were assembled, and felt glad of an opportunity of adding to the comfort of his friends near home.

Kou trees, 1875.

Kou Trees.—The beautiful kou, which furnished a remarkably rich-grained furniture wood, and which old residents remember as growing abundantly as shade tree on the seacoasts all over the islands, has quite disappeared within the past ten or fifteen years, having been destroyed by a new insect enemy. A few days since, a gentleman whose occupation called him to the extreme low point of land seaward from Moanalua, discovered a thrifty young kou tree, growing in front of a native dwelling, on which were a number of bright yellow blossoms. It is to be hoped that the kou will be again cultivated. What would be finer than rows of these beautiful trees on the Esplanade? They flourish best near the sea, and do not succeed far inland. The same gentleman informs us that during his ramble he found a specimen of the ohai, native locust, a flowering shrub which is now considered rare on this island. This species bears a bright red flower, while that of the island of Hawaii is a dark red.

New paper from the Hui Kalaiaina to begin, 1893.

A NEW NEWSPAPER

Mr. J. K. Kaunamano will print a new newspaper in the near future, in the mother tongue, from the side of the Hawaiian Political Association [Hui Kalaiaina]. The printing equipment of the Catholic Mission, will be what is employed by this new spokesman, and we simply assume that his editor will be someone skilled at this work, and so too of his workers. We hope that the Hawaiian people will progress through this endeavor.

[The first issue of “Hawaii Holomua” was published on 9/18/1893. It was a daily (except for Sundays). The last issue was printed on 1/5/1895. It was not printed in Hawaiian, but in English. This paper can be found on Chronicling America!]
