Sweet Emalia out and about, 1901.

[Found under: “LOCAL ‘HAWKSHAWS’ OWN UP IDENTITY … Sweet Emalia Denied the Oft-Repeated Impeachment]

“Sweet Emalia” was brought before the bar of justice to answer to the charge of being drunk. The fair defendant denied the soft impeachment, meanwhile shedding a copious flow of tears. Emalia was given a reprimand and discharged.

[Yes, Emalia Kaihumua made it out from the insane asylum!]

[Found under: “THIS AND THAT.”]

Sweet Emalia, that is Emalia Kaihumua, is now in the insane asylum [halemai pupule].

[After finding this abrupt notice, one would assume that now that Emalia was admitted into the insane asylum, other than escape, there would only be one way out…]

More on the California Midwinter International Exposition from Bila Kanealii, 1894.

The Midwinter Exposition.

J. S. Keawe, one of our officers in the uplands of Kalihi writes that he received the news below about the Winter Exposition being held, from a letter of March 17th by Bill Kanealii from San Francisco: From amongst the new things at the Fair to be seen by the visitors, there is a huge wheel that is 180 feet tall with 18 boxes all around, with each box holding 10 people. Another is the tower with a very tall steeple 300 feet high. The lake is another thing of high esteem; it is stocked with all sorts of fish, with 100 pipes feeding water into the lake with all kinds of water, so many that the visitor would not be able to count them all. The merry-go-round [melekolauna] (a thing that spins), is a quarter mile long travelling around until reaching the place where it starts from. The Hawaii display is the best of all. There are two days that the proceeds are the highest, that being Saturdays and Sundays, where $1,000 or more is the most and $500 or more is the least.

Sweet Emalia and Moanalua.

Their Problems Before the Court

Moanalua is a youth that we often see with a woman’s necklace all the time, and a women’s pocketbook. He is somewhat feeble-minded, and is always smiling. Moanalua is the name that people know him by, but his real name is something else.

He was arrested for stealing a suit and a pair of slacks from Keoki Woolsey’s place in Waikiki. He did not want a lawyer, and did not want to contest his guilt, and his case is left for the circuit court.

As for Sweet Emalia, she was enjoying the tasty water, swipe [suaipa], and after being filled with this intoxicating liquid, she went along with the two aikane, Kapahu and John Richard [?] on a car ride, in the evening of this past Sunday. The horse was exerted as they sped along King Street, and from the car came that song often heard from children on the streets, “There’ll be a hot time, in the old town, tonight.” This car was seen by a policeman as it sped on crazily, and he called out to stop, but the driver misheard and thought he was being told to speed up; and when the were caught, all the steam was exhausted from the horse resulting from it being run hard. Sweet Emalia and her riding companions were taken to jail [Halewai], and there she entertained the peace officers with her funny antics.

That Emalia was detained with another woman in a single room, and it wasn’t long when they began to display their skill in boxing. The rumbling of the earth was heard, and it was three large officers that separated the two women fighters.

Sweet Emalia was fined $12, and her fellow joy riders were each fined $2.00. Another suit was filed for injuring her companion, but it was dismissed.
