S. W. B. Kaulainamoku, the joker, 1867.

[Found under: “LOCAL NEWS: Honolulu.”]

S. W. B. Kaulainamoku.—One of our newspaper subscription officers, named above, on the evening of this past Friday, while he was peddling his containers of poi at the street corner of Honolulu nei, he saw soldiers heading his way; he quickly called out in a loud voice: “Huli loa!” [“About face!”], and because they paid no attention, he called out again, “Maisi!” [“March!” ?]. The soldiers turned towards him and he was taken to the Prison [Halewai] with his containers of poi over his shoulders. He was released that evening, and on the next Monday, he was tried in military court, and was instructed that should he try it again, he would be punished. O People, this is a strict law in great Countries, when a person calls orders to a soldier without authority while the soldier is on duty.
