Castle and Cooke flies the Hawaiian Flag, 1894.

THE HAWAIIAN FLAG AT CASTLE AND CO.

It is an astonishing thing to see the Hawaiian Flag at the shop of Castle and Co. [Kakela ma], up on the flagpole, where the American flag was placed for 18 or more months. And these days, the Flag is seen waving from the flagpole; how fickle is this; what is with this action by Castle and Co.

It perhaps will be said that this is the flag of the Republic, but we say that such is not the truth, it is simply running away and hiding, just like what the Supreme Court Justice stated, that the “Peacock Government” [Aupuni Pikake] governs under the Hawaiian Flag; they are frightened of the Lion [England] these days.
