[Found under: “TOPICS OF THE DAY.”]
The Independent recalls the fact that to-day is Restoration day. It reprints on its first page Professor Alexander’s description of the incidents attaching to it. If inaccurate in detail, it is worth reading and is suggestive to thoughtful persons at the present time. The government in control forgets the day, but Hawaiians remember and respect it, and in a few years time will again observe and honor it.

It would not be wrong of us to commemorate our La Hoihoi Ea, that being this coming Friday, the 53rd year from when George Paulet [Lo Keoki] trespassed upon Hawaii nei on February 25, 1843, and we were blessed once more by Admiral Thomas on that day the very same year. If we do indeed celebrate it, we should do it with decorum and peace.
