Honored Marriage at Hilo.
On the 16th of March, at 7 o’clock in the evening, joined together were Miss Christina Niualani Leeloy of the Lulehua Rain of Hilo with Frank M. Spencer, son of the Kipuupuu Rain of Waimea, with the golden rope of marriage. A large crown was made with the Hawaiian flag decorated with all sorts of fine flowers which was pleasant for the eye to see, and it was within there that they were married by Rev. Mr. Hill with honor. Willie Beckley and Miss Leeloy were the witnesses. The congregation was filled with distinguished and wealthy people of the land. The parents, Mister and Mrs. Kaihenui went and shook hands with the married ones, and after came the crowd with their gifts. On the 17th a wedding banquet was held with much joy.
Christina Niualani Leeloy is a girl well educated here and in foreign lands, and she served as a teacher for Hakalau, Hilo for a time, and she put aside that work because of weakness in her health. On the 18th, she boarded the Kinau for Waimea, the home of the husband, along with the parents of the wife.
