Kauai happenings, 1893.

KAUAIANA.

Social Circles Bright and Buzzing in Spite of Bad Weather.

The weather still continues inclement, the roads uninviting; ergo, news notes are scarce.

Mrs. J. C. Lorenzen and niece, Miss Etta Daniels of Honolulu, are visiting their friends, Mr. and Mrs. H. Z. Austin, at “Ocean View,” Kapaa, where we had the pleasure of meeting the Bishop of Panopolis and accompanying priests—Father Marratian and Father Levi. The Bishop is an old-time acquaintance of the Austins, dating back from their first residence on Maui, where he had charge of the mission at Wailuku. Continue reading

Latest from Maui, 1882.

MAUI.

Work has been commenced on the new wharf at Maalaea. Thirteen piles have been driven in.


The weather is fine on Maui, and very welcomed after the long rains. Most of the mills are running to their full capacity.


At East Maui Seminary, on Tuesday, March 7th, Charles K. Kahai was married to Kele Nueka. The decorations were fine, the entertainment splendid, and a large crowd. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. T. H. Rouse, assisted by William P. Alexander.


The Makawao foreign church has just put in a $250 new organ. They have also voted their pastor a three months’ vacation. He will visit the States and attend the commencement at Amherst College, where he has a son who graduates in June.


A society for literary and religious improvement was successfully formed at Makawao, on Monday the 6th. A lecture on Constantinople was read by our traveled friend, S. T. Alexander. A report on China and its missions by Rev. J. M. Alexander. Readings, recitations, and music filled up the evening. Monthly meetings will be held. The resources of home talent will be tested.


The King’s visit to Paia last Monday was a very pleasant affair. He was received at the depot with warm words of welcome by Judge Mossman. The Norwegian band escorted him to the fine house of Kapoola which was beautifully decorated. Dinner was spread under a large lanai. After dinner the Rev. Mr. Rouse addressed the King in behalf of the foreign residents; to which he responded and also made an address to the natives. The crowd was  large and enthusiastic. The Paia school under Mr. Crooks and daughter paid their respects to His Majesty, sang some of their school songs, and made a very creditable appearance. In the evening the train returned the King and attendants to Wailuku.

Good roads down in Ewa, 1869.

The road of Ewa—There are perhaps no other people in the backside of town who are greatly blessed with good roads to travel upon like those who live in the Ewa side and all the way leeward. Leaving town, it is truly a pleasant ride by horse or carriage; the windiness of Moanalua, the descent of Kapukaki, Kalauao, and the rise on that side, and the descent of Waimalu; it is just fine; there are no obstructing boulders that block or hold up the trip. There is great confidence in the efficiency of our Road Supervisor [Luna Alanui], and we hope that the days will not be far away when the roads all over the island will progress as well.

[This is the first time I have come across “maikakaʻi,” which I am guessing is a reduplication of maikaʻi. Any other thoughts?]
