John Kalino passes away, 1917.



Mr. Editor of the Kuokoa Newspaper, Aloha:—Please add to the columns of your paper this coming week, this loving package of tears, pertaining to our beloved father, Rev. John Kalino, who passed on to that path of us all, in the evening of Friday, the 12th of January, 1917, from heart failure [ma’i puuwai nawaliwali].

Our beloved papa was born from the loins of his parents, Kalino (m) and Kapalapala (f), in “The Skin-Stinging Rain of the Four Waters of Waiehu,” Maui, in the month of April, 8, 1862; he was 54 years, ten months, and eleven days old.

There were many of them who were born by their parents, however, they have all gone to that other world beyond, and our beloved father, is the very last.

He was married to our mother, Hana Kahinawe, in the month of July, on the 15th day, in the year of our Lord 1879; they were married in the holy covenant of marriage for 35 years and some months. From their loins came seven children; six girls and one boy; five are living and two have gone beyond. Continue reading

And at the time even the haole annexationists could understand Hawaiian. How many of those 80 do you think were bought by them?

It is good to read, and to think.

The new Hawaiian daily paper, “La Kuokoa,” started the other day printed about 1200 copies. Out of this number only 80 copies were circulated. Such is the native Hawaiian’s love for annexation.
