Estate sale of Charles Kanaina, 1882.

[Found under: “NEWS OF THE WEEK.”]

At the sale of the effects of some of the late Charles Kanaina, the feather cloak was purchased by the Government for $1,200. Her Majesty Queen Dowager Emma was a competitor for this cloak, the actual money value of which, if calculated on the basis of cost, it would be difficult to estimate. This cloak belonged to Kalaimamahu, the father of Kekauluohi, who was the wife of Kanaina and mother of the late King Lunalilo. Two portraits, one of Lunalilo and the other of Kekauluohi, were also bought by the Government for $100 each. That of Lunalilo was painted by Norwegian artist, named Jurgensen. The painter of the toher is not known.

Old Fire Engines [Kaawai].—In the midday of this past Monday, directly in front of the auction office of E. P. Adams, some old Fire Engines were put up for auction. Engine Number 1, “Hoomanawanui,” and Engine Number 4, “Holokahana” of the Hawaiians. When they were auctioned, Engine Number 1 went to James L. Lemon for $90, and Number 4 went to D. Foster for $126. What the two will do with the Fire Engines, we were not told; perhaps they will send it somewhere else.

Kaumualii’s mahiole fetches a mere $120 at auction, 1873.

[Found under: “NU HOU KULOKO.”]

Antiquities of Hawaii nei.—At 10 o’clock in the morning of this past Saturday, Mar. 8, the valuables of old Hawaii which were advertised earlier were auctioned off by E. P. Adams. The house was filled with all sorts of people, and some objects went for high bids. The feather mahiole of Kaumualii went for the price of $120. This headdress went for a very low price; it is believed that never again will there be available a mahiole of that kind. The care given to all of the objects by the mother who has passed [Mrs. Whitney] was very good.
