Playing around with advertising?

The design was based off of the Hawaiian flag printed in color in the January 1, 1862 edition of Ka Nupepa Kuokoa. See: The Hawaiian Flag—a closeup. 1862.

Kaumakapili Church member, 1910.

Old Member of Kaumakapili.

Mr. Aheakalani.

The picture above is one of Aheakalani, one of the very old members of Kaumakapili Church, and he has perhaps reached the age of ninety-five, being that he was going about about during the time Kamehameha was king.
He was first in the congregation of the church of Waiohinu, Kau, when the kahu were Parker, Mikahana and Mikini.

However, when he returned to Honolulu to live, he became a member of Kaumakapili Church, when Rev. Rowell Smith was kahu. And from that time, he has been one of the congregation there for sixty years. He is in good health and walks to prayer ever Sunday.
He is stout, but he is in recovery, and walks every Sunday with his cane, and through him, God is glorified for his amazing works.

Something to see, 1868.

[Found under: “LOCAL NEWS: Oahu.”]

A picture of the Legislature of Hawaii.—In Frank Leslie’s Illustrated Newspaper of New York, on the 4th of January, we just saw that there was printed in that paper a picture of the opening and the adjourning of the Legislature of 1866. Perhaps it was disseminated by a newspaper, and from there its likeness was drawn, however, when we gave it a glance, it wasn’t similar at all.

On Statehood, Republicans, Elepaio, and Voting Rights,1912.


It has been many years during which the Republican party has held power in the governing of the Territory of Hawaii, and Hawaii has not at all been made into a state, where we’d be able to vote for our own governor, our chief justices, circuit court judges, Senators, and representatives in our legislature, and other many heads of government. However, the cry of those Republicans in their workplace to make Hawaii a State, does not cease.  It is ten years that Kuhio has been in the Legislature in Washington, and he has not put a bit of effort into making Hawaii a state. The Republicans are like the Elepaio bird who crying goes, “Ono ka ia! Ono ka ia! [I crave fish! I crave fish!]” This bird just cries out, but does not venture to the sea to catch fish. But its cry atop logs is what makes canoes bug ridden [pu-ha]. Ten years of crying “Mokuaina no Hawaii! Mokuaina no Hawaii! Mokuaina no Hawaii! [Statehood for Hawaii! Statehood for Hawaii! Statehood for Hawaii!]” But there has been no statehood at all; one session of the legislature passes by and the next comes, and then passes by, and so forth. But the Elepaio (Republican) continues to cry, “Ono ka ia! (I Mokuaina no Hawaii.) Ono ka ia! (I Mokuaina no Hawaii.) Yet they do nothing so that Hawaii would attain statehood.

A sound sentence? 1888.

On the 23rd of this past April, in Waikane, there arose an altercation between S. E. K. Papaai and J. N. Paikuli. And as a result of J. N. Paikuli grabbing S. E. K. Papaai’s clothing, Papaai threw a punch at Paikuli and hit him in the nose. Paikuli sued Papaai before the District Court of Koolaupoko, and Papaai received 10 punches to the nose from the Court.
