Stephen Reynolds supports education of half-castes, 1847.

[COMMUNICATED.]

Mrs. Gummer’s School.—On Monday last an examination of Mrs. Gummer’s scholars took place at the residence of Stephen Reynolds, Esquire, Consul for the city of Bremen. This gentleman has for years distinguished himself as the active benefactor of children belonging to the class familiarly known as half-castes. It was he who first suggested the idea of a school to Mrs. Gummer, in which children of that class and of whites should be received indiscriminately. The preliminary difficulties to its establishment were overcome, mainly, through his exertions and the perseverance of Mrs. Gummer. Continue reading

William Haehae Heen faces racism from the United States, 1917.

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.

How Astonishing! Continue reading

Huge octopus caught by Anina, 1908.

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

KAUAI BOY SONG.

He mele he inoa no Aiu,
Kuu pua o Kina hapa Hawaii,
He opua hookahi a i kuu alo,
Kuu lei miulana poina ole;
Kau he hiki aku i ka moana,
Na ale nupanupa o ka Pakipika,

Kau aku ka manao nou e Palani,
Ke kahua hoolulu a o na koa,
O ke kikowaena a o ke kaua,
Ua huliamahi na aupuni hui,
Ike pono i ka hana a Kelemania,
Lahui puuwai ole o ke ao nei,

Haalele ana i ka puuwai,
Ua paa ko kino i ka aelike,
Me na ‘liikoa Amerika.
Hookahi makahiki i ka aina malihini,
Huli ho i ka home kulaiwi,
Hoomaikaiia ka Makua Lani,
E ole kuu kokua Mana Lani,
Hoi kino mai au me ka lanakila.
Haina ia mai ana ka puana,
Kuu pua o Kina hapa Hawaii.

Owau iho no,

MRS KILA KAILI.

[Might anyone know which Aiu this song is composed for by Mrs. Kila Kaili?]
