THE NATURE OF THE HAWAIIAN FLAG.
The Hawaiian Flag is one of the most glorious Flags, and it is so pleasant to look upon, and like the nature of the Flag, so too the People.
The brown-skinned [ili ulaula] Hawaiian Lahui are a kind People, are modest, treasure malihini, are welcoming, have open hearts, and so forth.
But even if the Hawaiian Flag and her People are kindhearted, they have been trampled upon by the descendants of the missionaries, and are being paid back with poisonous words, even more so than the Auhuhu.¹
It is being said that they are a Lahui that is stupid, know nothing, pagan, idol worshiper, and on and on.
That is what we the Hawaiian People get in return.
But despite all of their abuse, we are not full of hate at the actions of these missionary descendants.
The people who tried to grab our beloved land; and their names shall not be forgotten by this Lahui.
They being: Albert Francis Judd [Alapaki F. Kauka]; William Richards Castle [W. R. Kakela]; Lorrin Andrews Thurston [L. A. Kakina]; Amos Francis Cooke [F. Kuke]; William Brewster Oleson [W. B. Olesona]; Henry Martyn Whitney [H. M. Wini]; Dr. Charles M. Hyde [Kauka Hai]; Sereno Edwards Bishop [Kahunapule Bihopa], who was raised by a Hawaiian woman at Kona, Hawaii; Sanford Ballard Dole [S. B. Dole]; William Owen Smith [W. O. Smith]; the Emerson brothers [na hoahanau Emekona]; William W. Hall [Wile Holo]; and some others.
All of them is who brought down our Flag, by lowering it and raising the American flag in its place.
However, under God’s benevolence, our flag has been returned to its rightful place.
So therefore, O Hawaiian People, we are prepared to lay out before you the full list of names of these great transgressors.

RESTORATION DAY OF HAWAII NEI.
In the first half of the month of February, 1843, Lord George Paulet [Lo Keoki] arrived on the shores of Hawaii nei, and due to some things he thought were right, he took down the Hawaiian Flag and raised the British Flag, and this was the first time that the sovereignty of our land was taken. With that act however, the Royal standard [hae Kalaunu] was left alone along with the Sovereign in His place; this was not usurped; and peace was kept by the Hulumanu, the soldiers of Kauikeaouli at the time, and the makaainana remained then under the rule of the King, and they kneeled and prayed to God for the return of the sovereignty of the land to righteousness.

[Found under: “NA ANOAI O KA LA.”]
From the news we last received, there is this: there is a desire to place the American Flag atop the Palace, and the Government House, and the other flag poles of the nation, however, some of the high officials of Other Nations protest that act vehemently, and that is why it has slightly died down.

THE ROYAL STANDARD OF HAWAII.
In the history of Hawaii nei, from the time the Royal Standard of the Monarchs began first to flutter until 10 o’clock of the morning of Wednesday, January 18, 1893, for the very first time the famous beautiful flag was lowered because of a separate power, not because of the power of the Ruler of the land.
