Inter-island airline service, 1928.

RETURNING WITH TWO PILOTS AND TWO AIRPLANES

Announcing his desire to have permanent airplanes in our islands within sixty days of him stepping once again on Hawaii nei, E. H. Lewis landed in Honolulu nei on the morning of Friday of this past week with two pilots who will fly the two planes he purchased in America.

These men brought by Lewis are experts. The planes did not arrive with Lewis, but according to him, should there be no complications, the planes will arrive in Honolulu within 60 days.

The crafts can carry ten passengers at a time, and these will be the planes that fly regularly between Honolulu and Hilo and from Hilo back to Honolulu nei.

Kahili crafted for Governor Farrington, 1928.

FIVE KAHILI MADE FOR THE GOVERNOR

FIVE KAHILI FOR THE GOVERNOR

From the Workers Under Mokumaia

Yesterday evening, these kahili were shown in Waikiki.

The kahili will become the property of the territory.

According to Mokumaia, the workers are showing their congratulations to the governor as did the makaainana do for the alii in times past.

On May 2nd, the work on the kahili began, and it was completed on the 17th of May.

F. B. M. Kahea [Frederick Beckley Malulani Kahea] was the one who knew how to construct kahili.

J. K. Mokumaia was the great general of the chiefs.

[The beginning of the caption seems to be dropped out.] some Hawaiians are making five kahili to gift to Governor Farrington this coming 9th of June.

On the right of the picture is M. Keawe, J. Kapaiki, Mokumaia, Piko Kamahaa, Clara Kaaipua, Minnie Kakalia, Kahea, and Makekehau. The large kahili took 8,000 feathers each.
