NA-HA STONE TO BE SKIDDED ON GIANT ROLLERS

(Special Star-Bulletin Correspondence)

HILO, March 10.—At last preparations are being made for the conveying of the famous Na-ha stone fro the John Scott property to the site selected for it on the Hilo library lot. The big stone, which must weigh several tons, is to be brought down on rollers, as it is too heavy and cumbersome to handle by motor-truck or any other kind of vehicle.

Big rollers have been procured, and they will be placed under the stone in such a way that the rock can be slid down from its present resting place to the desired location, where it will be so placed that tourists and town folk can inspect it at their leisure.A plate will be attached to the stone and on it the legend in connection with the wanderings of the historic relic will be set forth.

The stone originally came from Kauai where it was used in certain religious ceremonies after the birth of a child of high degree. The legend has it that the first Kamehameha rolled the stone over after a terrific struggle in which he used so much strength that the blood burst from his eyes.

On the moving of the Na-ha Stone to Hilo Library 100 years ago, and its history (4 of 6), 1915.

As soon as Ululani heard these words of her children, she exited the house, and soon saw Kamehameha approaching, and that is when Ululani began a wailing call of love [uwe helu] and then she also called out the name song for Kamehameha with these words:

Au—we hoi—e, he mai hoi paha,
O oe ka ia e Kalaninuilanimehameha—a,
E hea aku ana i ka Iwa kiloulou moku la,
E komo e kuu Laninui hoi—a,
Ao i wehewehena ao i waihona—e,
Kona po o ka hoa keia—la,
A’u lei o ka ua haao hoi—e,
E lele ae la mauka o Auaulele—a,
E komo hoi paha i ka hale o Kealohalani—e,
Auau i ke kiowai kapu o Ponahakeone,
Ae inu hoi i ka awa a Kane i kanu ai i Hawaii,
A ola hoi ke kini o ke akua ia oe,
He mai hoi e kuu Laninuimehameha—a.

[Ah indeed, do come,
Might it be you, O Kalaninuilanimehameha?
I call out to the island-hooking Frigate bird,
Come in, my Heavenly Chief,
The day opens, the day closes,
In his night, this is the companion,
My lei of the Haao rains,
Soaring in the uplands of Auaulele,
Entering the home of Kealohalani,
Bathing in the sacred pool of Ponahakeone,
Drinking the awa which Kane planted in Hawaii,
The multitudes of the gods will live through you,
Come, my dear Laninuimehameha.] Continue reading
