The passing of Mrs. Elizabeth Kaaihue Raupp, 1922.



Mrs. Elizabeth Kaaihue Raupp of Kalihi, who is well known to some of this town, has passed away at 5 p. m., on the 23rd of December last, at her home, and were she to have lived eight more hours she would have died on the day of her marriage. On Wednesday, December 28, her funeral was held at the mortuary of H. H. Williams on Nuuanu Avenue, and then at the Catholic church, the funerary ceremonies were concluded, and after that her remains were taken to the Cemetery at Maemae.

She was born at Kahului in 1864, and when she was 8 years old, she was adopted [hookama] by Captain F. W. Fehlbehr and his wife Makaleka. On the 24th of December 1883, she was joined in the sacred covenant of marriage with George M. Raupp in the home of Edwin A. Hall at Aala.

She was a member of the Hui Kokua a Hookuonoono o na Wahine Oiwi Hawaii, the Ahahui Puuwai Lokahi, and the Ahahui Ka Hale o na Alii o Hawaii. When she passed, she left behind her husband, George M. Raupp and her only daughter, Mrs. Walter MacDougal, along with many siblings/cousins [hoahanau], Mrs. Annie Reist, Mrs. Rev. William Kamau of Ewa, William A. Hall, and Mrs. Annie K. Wong Leong.

She was a woman whose goodness was known by the people, that being her kindness, hospitality and generosity; and she had many friends.

To all the people who joined to grieve in the time of sadness for their beloved one who left this life, to all of the associations who gave their help, and to the many friends and fellows, goes the great appreciation of the ohana of Mrs. Elizabeth Kaaihue Raupp who left this world, for the gifts of beautiful flowers given to honor the remains of the one who has departed.

William A. Hall,

and the family.

Voting advice, 1861 / Timeless.

Voting for Representatives.

The time for electing our Representatives is approaching; therefore, let us think carefully about voting for the appropriate and right one before it is time to vote; let’s not put great trust behind the famous, wealthy people, and those high up in this world; let us not look solely at great claims made while they hide the truth within, let us not vote for those who are greatly concerned with money for it will alter and easily change their thinking, let us not vote for the heartless, the wrathful, the improper; let us not choose those convincing with the mouth, but vote for those who are chosen with consideration.

Therefore, let us look first at the person’s nature; let us peer, focus on, investigate, consider, discuss, question, associate with, examine; and when it is clear that the person is right, enlightened, thoughtful, devout, fearful of God, in appearance and in character, doesn’t change from day to day, doesn’t associate with the many evils characters, while treating with contempt the associating with those who are sickened by righteousness; upright and straightforward are their words, thoughts, lifestyle and course of action.

A person who is loved and appreciated by the people, who regularly speaks all that is right to mediate between two parties graciously and truthfully. That is the person who we should keep our eyes on; do not forget, my fellow dweller of this wearisome world. In this way, the words before the Legislative session will be truthful.

S. D. Keolanui.

[It is interesting to see that much of Keolanui’s advice still rings true over 150 years later.]
