The return of David Kanuha Sylva, 1893.

Hawaiian Seeking Education Returned.

In the month of June, 1888, David Kanuha Sylva left his land Waikapu, Maui, after graduating from Lahainaluna, and he left to increase his knowledge at the school of Hampton, Virginia, under the tutelage of Gen. Samuel C. Armstrong. When the General was here in Hawaii during the Jubilee of the Oahu College, we heard of the admiration of the teacher of Kanuha who was a student at the school, and he said that after graduating the school, Kanuha would be sent to learn tailoring at the House of Waenamaker [Wanamaker]. When the Australia docked on this past Wednesday, Kanuha returned to his land of birth, succeeding in his search for knowledge, and with determination to open his own shop.

First Floor—in and around the entrance—will be found displayed a Special Bargain in Men’s Trousers made from the finest Imported Cassimeres and Worsteds. One lot, $5; the other $6.80. Twenty beautiful styles, all from merchant tailor materials.
