In memory of John Kalua Kahookano, 1900.


Passed by the Bar on the Death of J. K. Kahookano.

The following is a copy of resolutions passed by the Bar Association upon the death of J. K. Kahookano:

Whereas, it has pleased Almighty God to take from us our brother lawyer, John Kalua Kahookano; be it

Resolved, That we, the members of the Bar Association of the Hawaiian Islands, in meeting assembled, hereby express our deep regret at the loss which not only the bar but the whole community has suffered by the death of our brother; and,

Resolved, That the late John Kalua Kahookano was a man who, by his honesty, integrity and other sterling qualities, won the respect and the esteem of the Hawaiian bar, who deeply regret his demise at the early age of 38 years.

As a member of the Legislature he not only satisfied the desires of his constituents, but showed a deep interest in the general welfare of the country, and displayed marked ability in legal matters. To his efforts are mainly due the amendments to our statute defining the degrees of murder.

As a representative Hawaiian, his career was full of promise—promise of future usefulness to his country.

As a public-minded citizen, he sacrificed his time and health in discharging his duties as a volunteer health inspector during our present epidemic.

Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be forwarded by the secretary of this association to his widow, with an expression of our deep sympathy in the bereavement of herself and family.


S. K. KA-NE,

Hawaiian Flag Handkerchiefs, 1893.


We were shown some silk handkerchiefs printed with the Hawaiian Flag by Mr. Charles Girdler; this is a haole, who is with the Hawaiians in the difficulties of the land these days; these are truly beautiful handkerchiefs, and because they are dyed color fast, they can be washed.

His tiny shop is next to the attorneys’ office of Akoni Rosa, Enoka, and Kahookano, on Kaahumanu Street. They will be gone in a few days.

Another beautiful patriotic mele by Eleanor Prendergast, 1893.


1st. Kahiko ka ohu i Nuuanu
I ka holu a ka lau Kawelu
Ua lupea ia e ka moani
Hoope aala oia uka.

Hui: He halia he aloha keia
No kuu aina hanau
A’u e hiipoi mau nei
No ka Lanakila o Hawaii.

2nd. Ua nani ka pua o ka Ilima
I pilia mai me ka Malie
I wehi hoohie no ke kino
Kahiko mau no Hawaii.

3rd. Kamahao ka ike’na i ka nani
I ka wai Lehua a na manu
Manu inu wai pua Ohelo
Iiwipolena o ke Kuahiwi.

Aloha Aina Ribbons! 1893


The person whose name appears below is ready to supply the orders of those from the country as well as those in the town of Honolulu for Ribbons printed with the Hawaiian Flag and the Crown. This is an insignia for men, women and children who prize their independence and who have aloha for their alii. I can be found at the office of Enoka Johnson on Kaahumanu Street. Each insignia is 30 or 40 cents each, and by the dozen, it is 20 or 30 cents each.


[Might anyone know if there are extant Aloha Aina Ribbons? This is something I want to see!]
