All of Hawaii was talking about Queen Liliuokalani’s 75th birthday, 1913.

HAWAII’S IMPERIAL BIRTHDAY

In accordance with this day being Queen Liliuokalani’s 75th birthday, her loyal subjects and old friends under her former administration, and even those of foreign birth, on this day from 11 o’clock in the morning to 12 o’clock, for 1 hour at Washington Palace on Beretania Street, they will be given audience; and at the imperial villa on the seaside of Wakiki will be held a grand celebration.

[There were many newspapers in many languages throughout the years here in Hawaii nei. In 1913, besides Hawaiian and English, there were papers in Chinese, Korean, Portuguese, and Japanese. Perhaps for research purposes we should consider not only looking at newspapers in one language, but we should see what they were saying in newspapers of other languages as well.]

(Hawaii Hochi, 9/2/1913, p. 4)
