News of the Kohala Districts and Hamakua
HONOKAA:—Just like the news announced last week in the Hoku o Hawaii, the Easter events were carried out at the church of Honokaa by the Rev. Abraham Poepoe.
The church was decorated with Calla and Easter lily flowers by the meticulous hands of Ramona Poepoe and Bertha Herrman. At the hour of 10:30, the church bell rang. The church goers gathered in the church. It was filled with soldiers, haole from the sugarcane plantations, the children of the Sunday School, and some Japanese Christians as well as Hawaiians. The services held that day were beautiful. “Awe inspiring and filled with the spirit of God.”
Easter day was a very nice day here in the Hamakua district and the dawning of this Monday. This is a rainy day, and this is a humid day. However, praised always is God. He knows that it is good for there to be rain and fog these days of war.

HE WEHI ALOHA NO KALANIANAOLE.
He inoa nou e Kalanianaole,
Ka onohi momi a o Hawaii nei.
He mea nui oe na ka lahui,

[Found under: “KA MOOLELO O KAMEHAMEHA I.”]
He nui ka poe kaulana i ke au o Kalaniopuu, a ua kaulana oia no kona puni kaua a me ka luku a me ka paia i na makaainana a me na kamalii opiopio—he makua aloha ole i na makaainana.
There were many famous ones during the era of Kalaniopuu, and he himself was well known, as someone who loved war, and massacring, and the striking of the makaainana and small children—he was a father who had no aloha for the makaainana.
[Although Kamakau describes many a chief as “war loving,” he describes Kalaniopuu as particularly cruel. This passage can be found in “Ruling Chiefs of Hawaii,” page 115.]
