Kuhio’s “Four Horsemen,” a translation from the time! 1939.

The Four Horsemen

The above picture was taken at Honolulu a few years before the passage of the Rehabilitation Law. There were four of these Hawaiians, and a few days after the return of the Delegate Prince Kuhio from Washington, assembled at Pualeilani at Waikiki to discuss the subject “Rehabilitation of the Hawaiians and after that discussion, these men went to town and had their picture taken at the William’s Gallery on Fort Street, as it was the Prince’s wish, so that he can show to his fellow congressmen at Washington his backers that brought up this important matter for rehabilitating its people, known to be decreasing, during the session of the Hawaii legislature, if the measure is allowed by congress. They are sitting. Prince Kuhio, standing, from left to right, Rev. S. L. Desha, Sr., John C. Lane and H. L. Holstein.

Manoa Valley? 1914.

Portrait of Manoa Valley Presented to the Captain of the Steamship Manoa

[Most of this article including the image of the portrait is not recognizable. I can somewhat make out:

“In the afternoon of this past Tuesday, between the hours of three to five, …..  a great number of Honolulu’s people touring the Manoa, and during this tour, the captain of the Manoa, Henry F. Weeden, showed a portrait of the valley…”

Hopefully someday soon, there will be funding enough to rescan the Hawaiian-Language Newspapers so that they will be available as clear images.]
