More on Consul-General Shimizu, 1895.

[Found under: “KELA A ME KEIA.”]

Some well to do Japanese of Honolulu nei gave a large party outside of Sans Souci [Sana Susi], Waikiki, on the afternoon of this past Friday for the former Japanese Consul, and his secretary, Goro Narita. Also present was the new Consul-General (H. Shimamura) from Japan and his secretary.

[It seems Shimizu replaces Saburō Fujii as the Consul-General in November 1894 (although Gorō Narita was temporary Consul-General during the short period from November 1894 to January 1895), and Shimizu’s own term came to an end sometime in early November of 1895. In the 12/2/1895 issue of the same paper, there is a short three-line mention of the former Consul, Shimizu, returning to Japan on the Coptic of the past Thursday (11/28/1895).]
