David Kailihiwa of 1017 Kawaiahao street died at his home at 3:15 o’clock last Tuesday, pneumonia being the cause of death. Services will be held next Sunday afternoon at Silva’s mortuary chapel, Kukui, near Nuuanu street, interment to be in the South King street Catholic cemetery.* Kailihiwa, who was a municipal employe in the garbage department, was married, and was born on March 3, 1861, in South Kona, Hawaii, being 61 years, 9 months and 23 days old at the time of his death. He is survived by the widow, Mrs. Sarah Akau Kailihiwa.
We understand that one of our physicians, who is thoroughly conversant with the native language, has been authorized to form a class of eight or ten Hawaiian young men, (graduates of the highest schools,) for instruction in the principles and practice of medicine.
There has never been made, that we are aware of, any systematic or earnest effort to instruct Hawaiian youth in the medical art. The knowledge that is necessary to be acquired to make a skillful and thoroughly competent practitioner is not to be obtained in this country, which as yet, does not possess medical schools and colleges, and the difficulties in the way of sending Hawaiian pupils abroad to obtain a medical education, are so various and insurmountable, as almost to preclude any hope of being overcome.

Hawaiian Music.—It is something to hear of Hawaiians, who but a few years ago, as a nation, possessed no other songs but the semi-barbarous Meles of their ancestors, and no other music than the montonous “ah—ah,——o—oo—u—uu,” of former years,—it is something pleasingly new to have to note the appearance of a neatly lithographed sheet of music for sale in the bookstore, both the words and music of which were composed by a Hawaiian lady. The title describes the sentiments expressed in the composition—”He Mele Lahui Hawaii,” or, in English, “A Hawaiian National Hymn.” Continue reading →
