The birthday of Pauahi, 1901.

Yesterday was the birthday of The Chiefess Mrs. Bernice Pauahi Bishop. Amongst the alii who passed on, Ke alii Pauahi is one who lives on in the minds of her lahui. She accumulated her great wealth and before her passing, she left most of it to build a School for the children of her people. Her strong desire was that her lahui be taught English and the proper knowledge for them to progress. Today there has been hundreds who have benefited from the knowledge they gained from these schools. She has gone on but left an unforgettable monument standing upon her land.

Lunalilo blessed the old people of his aina; Queen Kapiolani, the women who are increasing the race; Pauahi, educates those children. Those are the alii who left enduring monuments; and their names shall forever reverberate against the beloved walls of Hawaii nei.

(Kuokoa, 12/20/1901, p. 2)
