A Festive Marriage with Honor
MR. and MRS. W. H. HEEN.
AMONGST delightful sprigs of white carnations blossoms entwined with delicate fronds of palai fern decorating the interior of the church of St. Andrew, the sacred matrimony between Miss Lily Notley and Mr. William H. Heen, Esq., of the Legal Profession of Hawaii, was held, and Rev. Fitz married the two of them in peaceful reverence. The young woman was escorted by Mrs. Leslie, and the young gentleman by his brother [hoa hanau], Mr. Afong Heen.
Charles Kahiliaulani Notley, the birth parent of the bride, gave his beloved lei upon the altar of matrimony, the foundation for one to live amongst the circle of those who live in proper and chaste families in this world.
The Gentlemen who attended to this assembly of friends were Mr. H. A. Kaulukou, associate of Mr. W. H. Heen in the legal profession; William Jordan and John Marcallino.
The woman was dressed in a wedding dress of white silk made with great skill; and the man was dressed in the usual attire for that occasion.

A past issue of the Bulletin spread the news from Washington pertaining to W. H. Heen. The news being that the Senate is holding back their approval of Heen as Judge in place of Coke. The big reason behind this disapproval is that Heen is part Chinese [Hapa-pake]; where some Senators believe that this blood would not look well in a High Post in the Nation of the Unites States. How Astonishing! Continue reading

Whereas I have received the lease to the fishing rights for the seas of Queen Liliuokalani located at Waikiki Kai, that being the fishing area of Hamohamo on the makai side of where the Calvinist Church stands, then going east until the border of Kaneloa, to the seas called Niau, I therefore restrict Octopus [Hee]; but as for the other fish, they are open to all others. Therefore, abide by this or you will be in trouble.

HUGE OCTOPUS CAUGHT AND BROUGHT TO LAND.
On Thursday afternoon at the pier on the makai end of Allen Street, a large octopus was caught on hook by a part-Chinese boy named Anina.
While he was fishing enjoyably, he felt the pull of something and he thought it was an ulua. It pulled at his line for a long time, and because he could not pull it up, he called some people to come and help him for he was very worried that he would be pulled under. He had no concern about the line because he was using very heavy line with a hook that would not break.
When several people arrived, he was helped at pulling it up to land. Continue reading
