The sharpshooter Kaluaikoolau, 1893.

The Hero of the Koolau Cliffs.

There was a letter that has reached us saying that the Hero of the jagged Cliffs of the Koolau districts is incensed, hearing the boasts of some people pertaining to him; and he responds saying, “I will be defiant even if there are a hundred soldiers of this new government [Provisional Government], if they want to come get me again to arrest me; I will send forth fiery bullets to each of their heads.” This letter was written on this past 10th of December from the island of Kauai.
