Vote for William J. Sheldon, 1914.


To the Voters of the City and County of Honolulu.

Gentlemen: I hereby announce that I will be a candidate at the coming primary election for the Republican nomination for Sheriff. Having had the police experience of serving as deputy sheriff of several districts of these islands, and the legislative experience of five successive terms, besides being a practicing attorney, I am confident that, if elected, I shall be able to conduct the office of Sheriff with both intelligence and efficiency.

Your obedient servant,

Kalanianaole’s funeral, and just because you can’t find something online doesn’t mean it does not exist, 1922.

The coffin of Prince Kalanianaole being pulled by the Stevedores, while they march on King Street for the uplands of of the royal mausoleum at Maunaala. Below is part of the Daughters and Sons of Hawaiian Warriors [Ahahui o na Mamakakaua].

[These images are found on a page not available online. They appear in the second section of the Kuokoa (six pages total) that is totally missing from the online images. This is but one example of the coverage of the funeral. I have seen cases where pages were dropped out from the online images before, but I wonder how often total sections are left out.]
