Arrival of the children of Sun Yat Sen, 1912.

Children of Sun Yat Sen Welcomed with Enthusiasm

With the arrival of the Steamship Shinyo Maru last Monday from Japan and China, it carried aboard her the children of Dr. Sun Yat Sen, and they were warmly welcomed by the local Chinese of this town.

For the two weeks that the children spend here in Honolulu nei, they will be honored guests of the Chinese societies, and there will be constant parties given for them until they leave for San Francisco.

This travelling to America by the children will be to attend high schools. There arrived one son and two daughters.

They were born here in Hawaii, and they are Hawaiian citizens.

From them we see the new currency of the Republic of China, with a picture of their father on one side and the words “The Republic of China” on the other side.
