Mistreatment of mahu a hundred years ago, 1920.

This is a picture of Mr. and Mrs. Florincio Loriozo, Filipinos who were recently married; but Mrs. Loirozo who was believed to be a woman is a man, but who has being wearing women’s clothing and other women’s accessories for a number of years.

In the history of marriages seen here in Hawaii, there is none like the story of a Filipino couple who were arrested by the police on the morning of this past Tuesday, that being the marriage of Florincio Lorioza, a Filipino, to Benito Ocho, a Filipino man, a short time ago.

Terrorism even here? 1926.

KNIFE USED AS NAIL TO AFFIX NOTE ON DOOR

The Ku Klux Klan Association is here in this town according to Maurice Rey, the owner of a hair salon on Emma Street. According to the claim of Rey before Detective Kellett, this past Saturday, he found a warning of troubles that would be carried out upon him, and for that reason he wanted to be put under the protection of the police force, and he also asked that he be protected from wrongdoings by a group of degenerates seen often in his area.

When he went to his place of work in the morning of this past Saturday, the first thing his eyes saw was a note on the door affixed by a knife painted red, the paint still fresh on the knife. These are the words written on the note. “Mr. Freitchie, Do not let the sun set upon you in this town. BEWARE, K. K. K.”

The police department is in charge of being vigilant against this type of terroristic activity, and they will try to search out and arrest the Imperial Wizard of the Klan living here in this town.

Death of Kauhane, 1900.

THAT FAMILIAR ONE OF THE TOWN HAS PASSED ON.

At the Hospital was where the life of Kauhane left, one of the Hawaiians that was very familiar amongst the different ethnicities of this town. And this caused his friends around town to be overcome; he was a man that was very familiar as a sounder of the police whistle and an officer on street corners. And as a result of those positions, he had very many friends from the haole to the Hawaiians.

He was one of the Hawaiian boys who stepped foot on the Artic [Alika] in his youth, and he became a kamaaina of those foreign lands.

He was a Hawaiian who was greatly admired while he was travelled the seas¹ as a sailor until he became a Captain for one of the schooners of our seas. And he was one of the diligent servants…

Duke H. Kahanamoku, father of the world-famous Duke P. Kahanamoku, passes on, 1917.

DUKE K. KAHANAMOKU LEAVES THIS LIFE BEHIND.

Thursday last week, Duke K. Kahanamoku [Duke H. Kahanamoku] grew weary of this worldly life, the father of the swimming champion of Hawaii nei, at his home at 1847 Ala Moana Road, Waikiki.

On that day mentioned, Kahanamoku went swimming at the ocean that afternoon for his health, and upon his return, he lay to rest before dinner, saying that he was feeling dizzy; and a few minutes thereafter, his life breath left him and he went to where all must go. It is said that the cause of his death was heart disease.

Duke K. Kahanamoku was born in this town on the 21st of July, 1869, and so he made 48 years old on this past 21st of July. The reason Kahanamoku was named “Duke” is because he was born on the day that the Duke of Edinburgh arrived in Honolulu nei, on that very year and day.

Duke K. Kahanamoku, who died, was employed in the police department here in Honolulu nei under William P. Jarrett as a bicycle officer, recorder of offenses, and sergeant, until he became police captain for an entire watch, and for some unknown reason, Kahanamoku left the police force and began to work once more with William P. Jarret at Kawa as a prison guard.

Duke K. Kahanamoku left behind a wife and six sons and three daughters grieving for him on this side of the dark river [muliwai eleele].

From Ke Aloha Aina, we join the family who are saddened for your loved one, but God will lighten all your burdens, for it is He who creates and He who takes away. It is His will that be done, not that of the children of man.

Duke runs for reelection as sheriff of the city and county of Honolulu, 1936.

Duke Kahanamoku Asks Sheriff Re-election On Basis of Present Record

Kahanamoku, scion of one of the few remaining full-blooded Hawaiian families in the islands, was responsible for returning the sheriff’s office, for the first 25 years of city and county government always held by a Democrat, to the Democratic fold after it had lapsed momentarily into the hands of the Republicans with results that are too well known and too well remembered by every resident of Hawaii to repeat here.

Perhaps the most famous living exponent of the Hawaiian race is Duke P. Kahanamoku, who first spread the name of the Territory over the newspapers and magazines of the world by his swimming prowess and is now seeking re-election as sheriff of the city and county of Honolulu on the Democratic ticket.

For Sheriff

DUKE P. KAHANAMOKU

The Duke first took the world by storm when, and absolutely unknown, he went to the quadrennial Olympic games as one of the American team and made a clean sweep of all the swimming events in which he was entered, establishing several world’s records that stood for many years. He repeated this performance in the following Olympic games and ruled supreme in acquatic affairs until his voluntary retirement from active competition.

On his return to Hawaii the gratitude of the citizens of the Territory was expressed in the form of a public fund which was used to provide a residence for the Kahanamoku family.

The Duke declares in his speeches that he carries on the duties of sheriff of the city and county in the clean and sportsmanlike manner which distinguished his athletic career.

Despite inadequate appropriations provided for the greatly needed new construction at the city and county jail, which is under the jurisdiction of the sheriff’s office, Kahanamoku has established an efficient record in the conduct of this institution—a record on which he is asking renomination at re-election.

“I am a man of few words,” the Duke declares. “When I was representing Hawaii against the best swimmers in the world, I never predicted that I would win any particular race—but I think I won my share. It is the same with the present race for the sheriff’s office.”

[Duke seems to have followed in the footsteps of his father. Duke P. Kahanamoku’s father, Duke K. Kahanamoku served in various positions in the police department, ultimately reaching the rank of captain.]
