If you think any of these posts are of value, pass them on, whether by reposting them electronically on Facebook, or Twitter, or your own blog, or by email; or by printing them out and handing them off; or the old-fashioned way, by talking about them.

If you want to make a donation, please consider making one to the Library & Archives at the Bishop Museum. They care for much of the original newspapers from which I draw my information. They also are the caretakers of journals and letters and books and oh so many photographs containing historical information that cannot be found elsewhere.

Prejudice explained, 1901.

The Famous Black Man [Paele] in America.

THERE WAS MUCH PROTEST TO THE PRESIDENT INVITING HIM TO EAT WITH HIM.

Some Things Which Show the Hatred the Whites of the South Have for the Blacks to This Day.

Something that the people of the South of America are very incensed about now, that is because President Roosevelt invited Booker T. Washington, the very famous Paele in America these days, to go to the White House of the Capitol to dine with him. Perhaps none of us understand the cause of this anger, but these days, the hatred of the whites of the south have for the Paele like when these people lived as their slaves. The whites of the south know that this Paele is well educated, and there have been many a time that they went to him and showed him some things that were very unclear to them. So that we get an understanding of how the paele are hated, we will give a short illustration of a situation that is seen all the time at the home of this famous Paele. Continue reading

QUEEN LILIUOKALANI WAS NOT ALLOWED TO STAY IN FOUR HOTELS IN NEW YORK

NEW YORK. Nov. 30.—Queen Liliuokalani arrived here without any previous announcement, on this past Friday, and she was denied lodging in four of the very beautiful Hotels, that being the Waldorf-Astoria, Savoy, Netherlands, and Plaza. When they went to the Plaza Hotel, a servant of the Queen saw her, and being that he heard them saying that they would be going to the Roland Hotel, this boy went quickly and announced that Queen Liliu was arriving. When they arrived at the Roland Hotel, the  secretary of the Queen, Joshua Aea, asked that they be given the hotel’s best rooms for some ladies, and a room close to that room for him and a friend.

No Prejudice, 1893.

NO PREJUDICE!

There is None, Thank Heaven, In America Now.

None So Poor We Do Not Do Them Reverence,

Provided They Have a Title in the Family.

Kanaka, Negro, the Child of Adventurer or Throned Lewdness, It Matters Not If the Title is Good.

Correspondence of the Mail.]

New York, May 30.—This is the age of liberality and emancipation—liberty of thought and emancipation from all confining prejudices. We live in an age in which all men and women may do as they please, provided they do not infringe on the rights of others, and we have found the happy millennium when all men are free and equal in age as they were at the time of their creation.

Pan-Pacific Club promotes the ukulele, 1916.

PAN-PACIFIC CLUB WILL GET BEHIND HAWAIIAN UKULELE

Plans to Co-operate With Promotion Committee To Put Instrument Where It Belongs

MAINLAND DEALERS ARE TO BE SHOWN ITS MERIT

Quality and Output In Large Numbers Urged To Compete With Manufacturers In States

The Hawaiian ukulele in all its parts was one of the first exhibits of home manufacture to be sent to the Pan-Pacific industrial museum, and the Pan-Pacific Club is now co-operating with the promotion committee to put the Hawaiian ukulele where it belongs in the mainland. The promotion committee has received severe criticism from leading music houses in the mainland, setting forth the advantages of machine-made koa ukuleles manufactured in the mainland from Hawaiian wood, and insinuating that the hand made ukuleles of Hawaii might be greatly improved if up-to-date methods and machinery were used under the supervision of instrumental specialists from the mainland. They point out that as many thousands of ukuleles are sold every month now throughout America, and the little Hawaiian instrument has become recognized and a permanent place made for it, it might be well for the Hawaiian manufacturers to get together and pull together.
