More on the lowering of the flag, 1898.

WHO HATH EARS TO HEAR, LET HIM HEAR.*

Being that in time that news reported of earlier will come, about the raising of the American Flag above Hawaii, from the authority of the Republic of America; and in regard to this, word is being sent out to my beloved nation of Patriots.

DECLARATION TO THE LAHUI.

To all Patriots, we pray [ke Ka o ia aku nei? ke Kalo ia aku nei?] that you will not visit nor approach the area where the American Flag will be raised; let everyone remain at their own Home, kneel and look to the almighty one to ask for his help for the Hawaiian Nation, Land, and Kingdom.

All heads and leaders of the men’s and women’s Ahahui Aloha Aina [Hawaiian Patriotic League] and Hui Kalaiaina [Hawaiian Political Association], are directed to heed this as well.

JAMES K. KAULIA.

President.

*Mataio (Matthew) 13:9.

(Aloha Aina, 8/6/1898, p. 4)

O KA MEA PEPEIAO LOHE E HOOLOHE IA.

Ke Aloha Aina, Buke IV, Helu 32, Aoao 4. Augate 6, 1898.

  2. For an account of how Queen Lili’uokalani passed the day, see the San Francisco Call article of August 28, 1898 by Alice Rix posted on the Chronicling America website:

    Alice Rix: “I thought perhaps you would go away—into the country.”

    Queen Lili’uokalani: “Why? I came here to be near my people—to show them how to meet this. It has come upon us together—you understand? Together. I am not alone. My people lose their country; they lose their identity. Should I run away and shut my eyes and my ears when so many of them had to remain here in their homes? My home is also here, in Honolulu [Washington Place]. It gives us all courage to think of others. I remembered my people this day and they remembered me. We bore our trouble together. I did not leave my house….”
