Joseph M. Poepoe finds a koi pohaku, 1905.


In the care of the Editor of this paper [Joseph Mokuohai Poepoe] is a stone adze. It is almost two inches long, one inch wide, and its thickness is perhaps 1 to 2 inches. This adze was found at Wailea, North Hilo, Hawaii, last year when Kahiliaulani went on a circuit of Hawaii with his good Lady Mrs. Notley along with Lord Kalauokalani, the current Editor of this paper, Hon. Kumalae and David Kahaulelio.
