Kaleleonalani, 44 years old, 1880.

The Birthday of Emma Lani.—This Friday (yesterday) the 2nd of January 1880, Queen Emma Kaleleonalani made a full 44 years old. Just as usual, the day her royal mother suffered the pangs of birth arrived. The walls of her estate were filled with people. We are very happy to announce to the public that the cherished lehua blossom is as always bright upon her attractive full cheeks and the body of that “Rare Blossom” of the lahui remains strong. And while the people joyfully celebrate the arrival of that fine day, we remember and join in the cheer, and give our prayer that she lives long with her family with ease and good fortune. The King was graceful in passing by to give his congratulations to the Queen of one of the famed Kings of Hawaii nei.

A name song for Queen Kapiolani, 1893.

HE INOA NO NAPELAKAPU.

He inoa keia no Kapiolani

Birthday of Queen Kapiolani, 1895.

THE BIRTHDAY OF KAPIOLANI

This day is the 61st birthday of Queen Kapiolani, one of the royals still living with good health. She and her Princes celebrated her birthday in the shade of the coconut fronds of Kawehewehe just as this awesome day is always commemorated, where all of her household joined in in celebrating the birthday of their royal lady. The Dowager Queen is in good health, and will have many more years of birthdays, and it is our prayer that the Queen whose birthday it is will have a long healthy life until she grows old.

The birthday of Pauahi, 1901.

Yesterday was the birthday of The Chiefess Mrs. Bernice Pauahi Bishop. Amongst the alii who passed on, Ke alii Pauahi is one who lives on in the minds of her lahui. She accumulated her great wealth and before her passing, she left most of it to build a School for the children of her people. Her strong desire was that her lahui be taught English and the proper knowledge for them to progress. Today there has been hundreds who have benefited from the knowledge they gained from these schools. She has gone on but left an unforgettable monument standing upon her land.

Lunalilo blessed the old people of his aina; Queen Kapiolani, the women who are increasing the race; Pauahi, educates those children. Those are the alii who left enduring monuments; and their names shall forever reverberate against the beloved walls of Hawaii nei.

Birthday of Mrs. A. Pauahi Bishop, 1869.

[Found under: “NU HOU KULOKO: Oahu.”]

Birthday of the Alii Pauahi.—On the 20th of December, a party was held at Koholaloa, to celebrate the birthday of one of our young chiefs, that being the Honorable Mrs. A. Pauahi Bishop, recognizing her reaching thirty-eight years old. This past 19th was a Sunday and was her actual birthday, but because it fell on a Sunday, it was not observed. It was left until the following Monday. The lanai where the party was held was honored by the arrival of the Governess of Hawaii [Keelikolani], the Hon. Mrs. L. Kamakaeha, Mrs. L. Kaaniau [Kekaaniau], and the other dignitary women of this town. Later that night, the chiefess whose birthday it was was entertained at her home, relying on Pauli, Malo, Kapoli, and Wakeki, who sang some name songs for that alii. They were appreciated for their singing.

Death of Abner Kuhooheiheipahu Paki, 1855.

The death of A. Paki, on the 13th of this June.

The chief A. Paki. He appears in the genealogy of the Chiefs of this Nation, from ancient times, and he is a high Chief of this land descended from Haloa, that being the one father of the children living in this world, and the father of our people.

Part of his genealogy is taken from the High Chiefs of the land, and he is part of Kamehameha’s, and he is part of Kiwalao’s, and he is a hereditary chief of a single line from ancient times; and he was a father who rescued from trouble his people of this nation from Hawaii to Kauai.

His accomplishments during his life. When he promised to stop drinking and to become a Christian, from that time on he did not drink alcohol again until the day he died.

He was a Chief who was steadfast in his work for the nation, and he was an Alii who would be furious when he heard his deceased child being spoken ill of, as well as of his children who survive him.

From what I have seen of this Alii while he was alive. In the year 1837, he began his governmental work, and at one point he was appointed Chief Justice [L. K. Kiekie] of the country, and at another point he served as Governor, and another time he was included in the Privy Council, and still another time he was the steward for his child, this during his lifetime.
