Bonin Islands and Hawaiians abroad, 1830 / 2014.

ADVENTURERS IN HAWAII WENT TO SETTLE BONIN ISLANDS IN 1830

Historical Work Soon to Be Published Will Contain Letters From Honolulans

New and interesting facts concerning the conditions and history of the Hawaiian Islands during the first few decades of last century are promised in a history of the Bonin Islands which will be published in October by Constable London.

One feature is the tale of how the British consul in Honolulu in 1830 sent out a band of colonists to settle the Bonin Islands an attempt at colonizing the tiny archipelago for the British Empire which was destined to failure, for the islands now belong to Japan.

The book is by Rev. L. B. Cholmondeley, honorary chaplain of the British embassy at Tokio, who was for many years in charge of the mission at the Bonin group, and has since made frequent visits there. Continue reading

Hawaiians slighted? 1914.

THE CONTEMPT FOR HAWAIIANS IS CLEAR

Honolulu, Apr. 17—We hear from the word that is buzzing on the streets that Palmer Woods [Pama Woods] has been selected as Land Commissioner [Lunaaina] for the Territory of Hawaii in place of Joshua D. Tucker [Iosua D. Tucker], and Sheriff Jarrett [Makai nui Jarrett] in place of High Sheriff Henry [Makai Kiekie Hanale]. The reason for this decision by the Governor to select Palmer Woods for this position was because of the objection by the United States Attorney from Tennessee to select a Hawaiian in a position under the Federal Government, although the Governor wanted to appoint Palmer Woods as Marshall [Ilamuku] in place of Hendry. The people of the state of Tennessee are infamous for their contempt of people of dark skin, and perhaps that is one reason that place does not desire Native Hawaiians. Through this we should recognize the nature of the Democrats in America, as this sort of action creeps all the way here to Hawaii nei.
