Tsunami? 1862.

Turbulent Sea.

On Tuesday, the 28th of January, at Waialua, Molokai, exceptionally rough seas were seen, and there was much damage. The fish ponds from Moanui until Puako were smashed by the sea. The road at Honouliwai was dashed, and horses cannot  travel there. On the night of the 29th, there was a great earthquake, and the earth shook for eleven seconds. This is what was written in by M. Timoteo.

Personal Lands of Kamehameha III, and Government Lands, 1848.

By the Government.

A LAW FOR THE PERSONAL LANDS OF THE KING,
AND THE LANDS OF THE NATION.

[Here is a newly passed law of the land appearing in the newspaper Elele Hawaii. One of the functions of the newspapers was to inform the nation’s citizens of new laws and proclamations from the government. This particular law establishes the Crown Lands (and Government Lands) which still holds much importance to this day.

For a translation see “A Supplement to the Statute Laws of His Majesty, Kamehameha III., King of the Hawaiian Islands, … 1848.” pp. 22–43.

What is also valuable about this listing is that it describes in 1848 what ahupuaa a certain land belonged to, and so forth.]
