Kamehameha III’s Feather Cape returned to Hawaii, 1927.

THE FEATHER-CAPE OF KAMEHAMEHA IS RETURNED

Ceremony in Respect to the Ahuula is Carried Out in the Crown Room of the Palace Last Monday

In the morning of last Monday, the throne room of the palace was filled with visitors to see the ahuula of Kamehameha III gifted to Commodore James Lawrence Kernny, and now becoming a treasure for Hawaii nei, through the generosity of Walter Dillingham, the one who purchased the ahuula.

The ahuula arrived aboard the steamer Malolo which arrived in town, and was entrusted to the safekeeping of the national archives, and on that Monday was returned to the throne room with ceremony befitting the ahuula, along with the singing of patriotic songs of Hawaii nei, as well as the hearing by the crowd of speeches given by A. P. Taylor of the national arvhives, Governor W. R. Farrington, and Walter Dillingham.

The ahuula was returned and draped upon the throne, and to the right was the Princess Kalanianaole, while the throne room was filled with members of the Mamakakaua Association and heads of businesses and the multitudes there in that room.

The Story of the Ahuula

After hearing some songs for Kamehameha III, composed by some Hawaiian ladies, the crowd entered while singing the anthem of Hawaii. And Mr. A. P. Taylor explained the history of the ahuula.

According to him, this was an ahuula gifted to Commodore James Lawrence Kearny of the warship Constellation, by Kamehameha III, in the year 1843. He was the one who saved Hawaii from the subjugation by George Paulet.

The ahuula was inherited by the child of Commodore Kearny, and from there to his cousin, James Lawrence Boggs of New Jersey.

After the explanation of its story, the ahuula was presented before the governor for the makaainana of Hawaii nei, whereupon the governor spoke a bit, while giving his thanks and appreciation for it being returned here to be cared for in Hawaii nei.

Given to the Museum

The honor was given to Walter Dillingham for his return of the ahuula for stewardship by the museum up above Kamehameha, and he gave a short speech and placed the ahuula under the care of A. F. Judd, one of the members of the board of the Trust of Pauahi Bishop. After his speech, Mrs. Mary Kekinookalani Padeken presented a chant composed by her, “Aalii Ku Makani.”

New Women’s Hats, 1875.

Hoola Luahine—In these recent past days, women have been seen wearing tilted to the side, high-crowned hats made with skill, and when looking at this, it is becoming to the youth and to the elderly as well; and for this reason, this type of hat is called, a “hoola luahine [reviving old lady].” We are appreciative of this endeavor; it decreases the money spent on foreign hats.
