Romeo and Juliet of Hawaii? 1912.

HOPE LOST.

This Saturday Avira was returned to Honolulu nei; he is an 18 year-old Portuguese boy who left aboard the Maunakea on Tuesday to marry the young woman who he is deeply in love with, in Hawi, Kohala. This desire of the boy would have perhaps been fulfilled were it not interfered by the police of Kohala. When the young Avira arrived in Kohala, a wireless telegraph from Deputy Sheriff Charles Rose had already reached the police there, to watch for the young Avira and to stop him from marrying the young girl he loved, according to the request of Joe Augustine Avira, his father, who was opposed to the marriage of his son to this girl. According to the statement of the police department, these two sweethearts are children that have not reached the age of adulthood.

Drought in upcountry Maui, 1912.

KULA CRIES OVER THE SCORCHING SUN

We have received word that the district of Kula, Maui is once again faced with humid heat, and they are distressed over water; there is little water flowing through the pipes of Kula both day and night. There is a great need for rain to fall in this district, because the crops are beginning to dry out, and the animals are also suffering. Before, Waihee was known never to have water shortages, but they are starting to see problems due to lack of water because of the length of this period of drought with no rainfall.
