INDEPENDENCE DAY OF THE PORTUGUESE.
An Association of the Portuguese honored their independence day on the evening of Friday last week, in their club house on the streets of Alapai and Punchbowl [Puowaina]. Amongst this group of Portuguese were seen some with soldier uniforms like that of the Americans that were supplied by the P. G. This is the astonishing thing about this: these Portuguese soldiers of the Government of the P. G. went to celebrate their independence, and yet they are insistently trying to wrench that right from Hawaii. This is like the missionary family of these days who we’ve seen holding the Bible in one hand while with the other hand, carrying out treachery to the people to whom they taught not to break the Ten laws of God.
