Another mele for Kawailani, 1913.

HE WEHI NO KAWAILANI.

1. Maemae na lehua o Lihau,
Lamalama no i ka aekai;
Nohenohea na maka oia pua,
Ua like no me na lehua o Panaewa.

Hui—He lei hoohie ia na na kini,
He aloha kaumaka na ka malihini,
He koii hana mau i ka puuwai,
Ka iini no ia la o ka ike.

2. Maemae na lehua o Hopoe,
Ka popohe nenee i ke pili;
Ka mapu aala a ka hinahina,
He nani ia la he nohea i ka maka.

3. Maemae na kukui o Hanunenune,
He kukui pio ole i ka ulumano,
He milimili hoi na na lani,
He ala onaona hone i ka poli.

Ka lihilihi o ka lehua.

Letter from Iosepa, Utah, 1913.

Word From Utah.

Iosepa, Toole County, Dec. 19, 1912.

Solomon Hanohano, Editor of the Kuokoa, Aloha oe:—Because we want to know of the news from our birth lands, we decided to subscribe to the Kuokoa. As the new year is arriving, it would be a means for us to see the news of our home and the progress of the political scene or its regression, as well as the victories or discouragements of our fellow makaainana.

This is an important year for the country, being that the great power of the nation has gong to the Democrats; the important question is this: Will the poor citizens of the land really benefit, or will they once again perhaps drift about like during Cleveland’s presidency, but it will be time that tells.

If those who were elected actually carry out what they promised with their lips to the people, then benefits will indeed result, however if it is like what Isaia said: “This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, but their heart is far from me.” Then those words of that old kamaaina of Lahaina will appear: “He says, when oh when will that happen.”¹ Recognized are the wealthy, and ignored are the poor.
