THE SCHOOLS OF SAINT LOUIS AND KAMEHAMEHA.
We reported that the students of Saint Louis School were forbidden from wearing annexation ribbons upon their chests. That is patriotism. And we also reported that the students of Kamehameha School were ordered to wear annexation ribbons at the urging of the teacher. How lamentable for the Hawaiian youths that are pushed in to giving up their land of birth.

LISTEN, O PUA O HAWAII¹.
As a spokesperson for the people, and being that we are all angered by the contemptuous words of the people who stole our beloved land; we continue to protest these acts to this day; therefore, we speak on something we saw which is stealing once again; and that is this:
October 24, Bulletin Newspaper²; the newspaper stated:—Professor Berger of the Government Band [Bana Aupuni] has put a request before all the members of the National Band [Bana Lahui Hawaii] for the boys to agree to give time to teach his musicians to sing; time to sing will be made between the first and second parts and so forth.
And being the boys of the National Band will join with the “Peacock government [aupuni Pikake]³” Band, it shows those on the outside that the two sides have joined together and the disagreements have become as naught.
That is the gist of this report which we saw; and those rights of yours, O Hawaii, will be stolen once again.
