Calendar featuring pictures of the commission who took the anti-annexation petition to D.C., 1898.

[Found under: “LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS”]

The Ka Ahailono o Hawaii has issued an Alamanach for 1898 which is adorned with the pictures of the Hawaiian anti-annexation commission now in Washington.

[This is just another thing I wish I could see. As of today, there are no extant copies found of Ahailono o Hawaii (which first appeared on 6/7/1897). Maybe one of these days, someone will come across some. Please be on the look out.]

A STORY

OF

LONOIKAMAKAHIKI

Son of Keawenuiaumi

And Fearless Grandson of

Umialiloa

And the Famous Riddling Chief of Great Hawaii of Keawe.

O Lonoikamakahiki kapu a Kalani
O Kalani kapu a Keawe i hanau
Hanau Kalani he Alii kuhalau
He lau kapaahu nehe o Lono—e.

[Lonoikamakahiki, the sacred one of Kalani
Sacred Kalani, born of Keawe
Born was Kalani, a expansive Chief
O Lono, a rustling of a heap of mats.]

(A Hawaiian Story.)

Words of clarification.—The story of Lonoikamakahiki is one of the stories delighted in by the native Hawaiians of Hawaii nei of the olden days, and it is a moolelo that was enjoyed by the alii born in this land who have passed on. We have endeavored to print this story to the greatest of our ability, but it is a common thing for there to be discrepancies from what is published with what is memorized by some people. May our readers please be patient with the mistakes, and take the valuable things that will teach us of the nature of the deeds of the alii of our land of days past. Publishing the valuable stories of our alii and makaainana of our land of the past is of great importance. We hope that this story will travel its path, delighting the readers of the Hoku. But do remember, O Readers, that money is what makes this possible, and consider that our kupuna were generous and welcoming people. Open the purse of aloha, and remember the life of our beloved.— Editor.

[This story of Lonoikamakahiki appears in Hoku o Hawaii from 7/8/1909 to 12/9/1909. Unfortunately, the first 11 buke of the Hoku, from 5/3/1906 to 5/24/1917 are not available yet online.]

New Hawaii Island newspaper? 1916.

There are a number of Hawaiians planing a new Hawaiian newspaper for the Island of Hawaii, under the direction of John Kai. This will perhaps be a newspaper that fights against the Board of Supervisors [Papa Lunakiai] and the Chairman [Lunahoomalu]. And there is other word that it will wrestle with the Hoku. That is their business.

[Found under: “Nu Hou Kuloko.”]

Put before us was a handwritten newspaper called “Mamalahoa Kanawai.” Perhaps it will only come out with one issue and it will perish. Or perhaps also it will flourish.

[Anyone know of this newspaper?]

News of the Apaapaa Winds.

To My Constant Desire, Ka Nupepa Kuokoa.

Aloha oe:—On this past 11th of Oct., fire engulfed more or less 15 acres of Robert R. Hind’s.

This is the cause. The fire jumped from the property of J. W. Keohokii, Esq., while he and his workers were burning the leaves of the sugarcane.

And it was extinguished because of all of those assisting. The luckiest thing was that the cane was all ready to be milled.

While the smoke was billowing, the Fly Wheels of the two Mills spun, that being Haui Mill [Hawi Mill] and Union Mill,  hoping to quickly take care of that burning cane. Because of the terribly wild winds that day, it was not put out quickly.

On that very day of the fire, a Handwritten Newspaper at Kaiopihi under the editing of Joseph Poepoe was issued.

The name of that paper is “Hoku o ke Kai.” When we examined it, the discussions were outstanding.

On the past 16th of this month, at 6 o’clock in the evening, the sugar plantation people of the district of Kohala, from Niulii to Kaauhuhu, met at the Court House. And this is what happened at that meeting.

The officers were chosen first. J. Wight, President; Dr. Thompson, Vice President; H. B. Montgomery, Secretary; D. S. Kahookano, Hawaiian Secretary; Charles Hapkins [Charles Hopkins], Translator.

After this, Henry Johnson explained the purpose of this meeting.

1. Pertaining to the laborers. 2. Pertaining to the wages of the laborers. 3. The work hours per day. This was left to a committee.

D. R. Vida, Esq., asked that a Committee be selected to  form a constitution, laws, and rules; the motion was passed.

H. Johnson, Esq. put forth the name of this organization, that being “Hui imi pono a hooholomua o ka poe mahiko a Wili o Kohala” [Association seeking rights and progress for the workers of the plantations and Mills of Kohala].

The meeting was adjourned until the 30th of Oct. to hear the report of the Committee.

Yesterday afternoon, Oct. 17, a brick fell between the Boilers of the Mill of R. R. Hind, Esq., but there were no serious injuries.

Those were a few news items from here in the Back areas.
