A mele by the “Solomon” of Hawaii, William J. Sheldon, 1918.

A MELE FOR THE HAWAIIAN BOYS.

Here again is this mele which was composed for the Hawaiian boys who just left Hawaii for America to join the armed forces of the nation, to try all means to obtain peace in the future, and the composer recalls the famous words of the Conqueror of the Nation of Hawaii nei, “Law of the Splintered Paddle: let the old men and the old women go and lie by the roads, no one is to disturb them.”

These lines of mele were composed in English by our friend and famous composer of songs of these days, and in other words, the “Solomon,” Hon. William J. Sheldon (Kelekona). The music will be available soon as it is now being edited with great care.

I.

Farewell, farewell dear Hawaii,
Sweet land of song and aloha
Thy sons to duty’s call go forth,
To the front thy honor to bear.

Chorus:

Boys, when you get over there,
Don’t forget Hawaii aloha
For you, we will ever pray
That freedom and liberty be won.

II.

Thou are brave sons of Hawaii,
True to your country’s call,
Let Hawaii’s fame be known,
O Hawaii no ka oi.

(Aloha Aina, 6/21/1918, p. 2)

The Alii moved to Maunaala, 1865.

[Found under: “HUNAHUNA MEA HOU O HAWAII NEI.”]

The Deceased Kings Taken to the New Royal Cemetery:—On this past 30th of October, the deceased alii who were at placed at Pohukaina were taken to the New Royal Cemetery at Maunaala, Nuuanu. When they were preparing to take the remains from Pohukaina, there were many people gathered outside the gates of the Palace grounds. But the activities that night were properly peaceful, and the volunteer [pualu], hulumanu, cannon, and calvary troops extended their patience. We have nothing to say but to give our thanks to them. There were many people gathered at the street crossings in hopes of seeing the coffins of the deceased alii. They knew that is how they would see them.

Who was threatening whom? 1893.

Martial law in a situation of this kind is a ridiculous and absurd proceeding and does not reflect creditably on the part of those who designed it or who still keep it enforced. The late Ministry and their adherents surrendered everything peacefully and quietly. No one wants to attempt to change the state of affairs existing as everyone is content to await the decision of the United States and abide by it. The Hawaiians are eminently a peaceable people and no one is either exiting them or endearvoring to excite them. All are confident in the justice of their cause and willing to await the result with patience. The foreigners who adhere to that side advise them so, and follow their own advice; to do nothing calculated to annoy, scare, or injure anyone or anything, and this advice is being sedulously followed.

Another Hawaiian son away at war, 1917.

A LETTER TO HIS PARENTS.

Dear Papa and Mama, much love:–It has been a very long time that I have not written back to you, my Parents. Please forgive your child for his neglect.

There is one thing I will tell you; I have joined the military of the Father Country this past September, and I am in the forces of the Engineers, Co. B, 302nd Engineers, Camp Upton, Yaphank, L. I., N. Y. Therefore, my beloved parents, this is something you should be proud of your child for, for my joining the military of the country which protects us, and for me obtaining a high rank in my division, a sergeant major; and not just that, but the path is wide open for me to advance higher.

As I compose this letter, it is time for us to move out, and I am just waiting for the orders, whether it be to France, or to Italy perhaps, so I will make it short as it is soon time for me to get into action. Give baby a long kiss for me, and give my great aloha to tutu them and Pita Liilii [Little Peter], and to Aunty Kilikina and Uncle Apo, Uncle Koowa, Aunty Kukana and Annie and Henry Williams them; and all of my aloha to you two, my loving parents. Your loving child,

PETER CHARLES CORNEY.
