Commemorative Kamani planted at Kamehameha Schools, 1904.

Kamehameha Schools.

The Kamehameha Schools held their exhibition on this past Friday, starting with the Boys’ Primary School. On that day the exhibition of that school was held, and on this past Monday for the Girls’ School.

On Monday afternoon, the boys’ senior class held a tree planting to memorialize the days of living in hardship at this home of learning, and present were those invited to watch the activities. The tree that they planted was a kamani, and the area where it was planted was upland of their chapel.

Later that night, speeches and songs were performed by the Girls’ School in their chapel. These were speeches by the students graduating this year. There were eight girls: Edith Leilani Dunn, Annie Claire Davidson, Hattie Hiilani Jones, Victoria Kekaihaakuloulani Mahikoa, Iwakilaukapu Augusta Scholtz, Hannah Keakalani Sheldon, Hakamaikalani Wongkong [Hakamaikalani Wong Kong] and Henrietta Weloulani Scholtz.

The New Kamehameha School Paper of Students.

“Blue and White” is the title of a very neat four page paper published by the students of the Kamehameha Schools. The initial number was issued yesterday. The staff is composed of the following:

Abel Ah You, editor-in-chief; George Wells, assistant editor; Charles Lyman, athletics; David Desha, exchange editor; Charles Williams, superintendent of printing; associate editors, Enoch Hussey, Henry Sniffen, David Mahukona.

The leading editorial is devoted to a synopsis of an address made before the Kamehameha Alumni meeting held on June 8, 1904, as follows:

And now a serious word about Kamehameha. Kamehameha with all it means is the Hawaiian heritage. If ever an institution belonged to a people, this belongs to you. It is yours to guard, to use, to cherish. And to my mind, Kamehameha is the last hope of the Hawaiian people. But it is enough. Continue reading

“Ka Momi o ka Pakipika” to begin, 1898.


We have heard that Joel K. Kamakea will in the near future print a new weekly newspaper named “Ka Momi o ka Pakipika.” Its columns will be dedicated to stories about the famous Knights of the olden days, detective stories, Hawaiian cloud reading, scientific and educational material, knowledgeable things dealing with the Bible, and many other educational things. This will probably be a paper of four pages. We were told that it will be sold by the copy.

[I am not sure if there are extant copies of this paper available.]

New paper from the Hui Kalaiaina to begin, 1893.


Mr. J. K. Kaunamano will print a new newspaper in the near future, in the mother tongue, from the side of the Hawaiian Political Association [Hui Kalaiaina]. The printing equipment of the Catholic Mission, will be what is employed by this new spokesman, and we simply assume that his editor will be someone skilled at this work, and so too of his workers. We hope that the Hawaiian people will progress through this endeavor.

[The first issue of “Hawaii Holomua” was published on 9/18/1893. It was a daily (except for Sundays). The last issue was printed on 1/5/1895. It was not printed in Hawaiian, but in English. This paper can be found on Chronicling America!]
