The Queen and the alalaua, 1917.


Following the birthdays of our dearly Beloved Queen, her weakening health was noticed. And we guess that this is the reason for the appearance of the alalaua, like what is usual for this lahui, that when this fish to save the people runs, the Ruler will follow. Aloha for the Chiefs of this Lahui; left is Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole, our Chiefly Representative and the Leader of this People.

(Puuhonua, 9/28/1917, p. 4)

  1. Interesting that this article was published In September, before Liliuokalani’s death on Nov. 11, 1917. It is as much as saying that she will be gone soon.

    Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole would be left, as the article says, until his death in Jan. 1922.
