The birthday of Princess Ruta Keelikolani Keanolani Kanahoahoa Muolaulani Keikiheleloa Keanohalia Kaleonahenahe Kohalikolani, 1871.

The birthday of Muolaulani.—In a report we received, we learned some things about the birthday of the Royal Governess Keelikolani. We were informed that on the past 9th, that was the day she gave delightful parties, for the day that her mother Pauahi suffered the pangs of labor and gave birth to her. A bit before her birthday, she set up a great lanai a hundred feet or more in length on the grounds of Hulihee Palace, on the right side of the building in the front of Haleolelo. This was large enough for over three hundred people. Her retainers and her people were those who filled out the party. And the taro that she farmed in those days of famine in the year of ’70 was the taro at the feast. Long live the land of the calm of the billowy clouds white like hinano blossoms.

[This reminded me of a video I recently saw on Facebook, speaking of another Haleolelo, this one on the other side of Hawaii Island, giving honor to the Princess and what she stood for. Click here for Oiwi TV’s video featuring Haleolelo.]

Birthday of Kamehameha IV, 1862.

Orders of the General
[Kauoha Alihikaua]

1. This coming Sunday, the 9th of this month, is the birthday of King Kamehameha IV; therefore, it is commanded that at 8 o’clock that morning, the Hawaiian Flag will be raised at Punchbowl [Puowaina], and at the residence of the Honorable M. Kekuanaoa, the Governor, and on the other Flag Poles of the Nation. All of the Flags will be taken down at sunset that day.

Because the birthday of the King will fall on a Sunday, therefore, the celebration of the King’s birthday will be postponed until the following Monday, that being the 10th.

2. The Hawaiian Flags will again be raised, as was stated above. 21 guns will be shot off at the rising of the sun, and at 12 noon, and also at the setting of the sun.

3. All of the Military Officers and the King’s personal Guards are to wear their gold-trimmed uniforms [kapa kula] and their swords. The Officers shall be smartly uniformed until sunset.

By the order of the General.

John O. Dominis.
Adjutant General [Akukana Kenelala].

Princess Liliuokalani to make circuit of the Islands, 1881.

[Found under: “NOTES.”]

Her Royal Highness the Princess Regent will make a tour of the Islands. It was the Princess’ intention to have made this tour early in this year, but the breaking out of the small-pox and the consequent quarantine regulations prevented the plan being carried out, the Regent setting aside her own wish to travel in order to show an example of keeping the quarantine strictly. The Regent and suite will leave on August 2nd, they will visit the lava flow first and will then spend a fortnight or so in the Kohala district, about August 19th the Regent will visit Kau. The Princess Likelike will probably join her sister in Kau. The other islands of the group will be visited in turn.

Unheeded words of Talmage to the United States of America, 1894.

REV. DR. TALMAGE.

His Article Which Greatly Hurt the Missionaries Amongst Us.

The article below written by the Rev. Doctor Talmage of New York and published in a newspaper there was translated and published in the newspaper “Aloha Aina;” however,  because of the difference between our understanding of the translation and theirs, we took it and translated it once more and am putting it before our readers. Here is our translation of the said article:

Honolulu, June 18, 1894.

The chamberlain came to invite the two of us to go to the residence of the former Monarch, and had suggested 11 o’clock that morning as the best hour for our visit…

[This is what sent me looking for the article I posted earlier today. Unfortunately, the previous translation is not found online. It must have been printed in the paper, “Nupepa Aloha Aina” which ran from 1/6/1894 to 1/5/1895. The entire run is in the holdings of the Mission Children’s Society Library. This is a paper that is well worth digitizing and OCRing. I am excited to see what the translation differences could be!]
