Couple of years ago, I posted two articles on an insurance claim by Peleioholani after a priceless ahuula was destroyed in the great Chinatown fire of 1900. I just ran across this just now:
ROYAL FAMILY CLAIM
THE FEATHER CLOAK DESTROYED BY FIRE
Liliuokalani Will Testify—Alleged That the Cloak Was Stolen From the King’s Palace.
Queen Liliuokalani will testify before the Fire Claims Commission regarding the royal feather cloak lost in the big fire by Peleioholani.
It is said that the royal family lays claim to the ownership of the destroyed cloak. The costly article is alleged to have belonged to King Kalakaua, and been stolen from Iolani Palace many years ago.
