LISTEN, O PUA O HAWAII¹.
As a spokesperson for the people, and being that we are all angered by the contemptuous words of the people who stole our beloved land; we continue to protest these acts to this day; therefore, we speak on something we saw which is stealing once again; and that is this:
October 24, Bulletin Newspaper²; the newspaper stated:—Professor Berger of the Government Band [Bana Aupuni] has put a request before all the members of the National Band [Bana Lahui Hawaii] for the boys to agree to give time to teach his musicians to sing; time to sing will be made between the first and second parts and so forth.
And being the boys of the National Band will join with the “Peacock government [aupuni Pikake]³” Band, it shows those on the outside that the two sides have joined together and the disagreements have become as naught.
That is the gist of this report which we saw; and those rights of yours, O Hawaii, will be stolen once again.
THE NATURE OF THE HAWAIIAN FLAG.
The Hawaiian Flag is one of the most glorious Flags, and it is so pleasant to look upon, and like the nature of the Flag, so too the People.
The brown-skinned [ili ulaula] Hawaiian Lahui are a kind People, are modest, treasure malihini, are welcoming, have open hearts, and so forth.
But even if the Hawaiian Flag and her People are kindhearted, they have been trampled upon by the descendants of the missionaries, and are being paid back with poisonous words, even more so than the Auhuhu.¹
It is being said that they are a Lahui that is stupid, know nothing, pagan, idol worshiper, and on and on.
That is what we the Hawaiian People get in return.
But despite all of their abuse, we are not full of hate at the actions of these missionary descendants.
The people who tried to grab our beloved land; and their names shall not be forgotten by this Lahui.
They being: Albert Francis Judd [Alapaki F. Kauka]; William Richards Castle [W. R. Kakela]; Lorrin Andrews Thurston [L. A. Kakina]; Amos Francis Cooke [F. Kuke]; William Brewster Oleson [W. B. Olesona]; Henry Martyn Whitney [H. M. Wini]; Dr. Charles M. Hyde [Kauka Hai]; Sereno Edwards Bishop [Kahunapule Bihopa], who was raised by a Hawaiian woman at Kona, Hawaii; Sanford Ballard Dole [S. B. Dole]; William Owen Smith [W. O. Smith]; the Emerson brothers [na hoahanau Emekona]; William W. Hall [Wile Holo]; and some others.
All of them is who brought down our Flag, by lowering it and raising the American flag in its place.
However, under God’s benevolence, our flag has been returned to its rightful place.
So therefore, O Hawaiian People, we are prepared to lay out before you the full list of names of these great transgressors.
¹Auhuhu is a plant that was used in fishing as a fish poison.

On Thursday afternoon of this last week, Hon. C. W. Ashford raised a Hawaiian Flag hand sewn by some Hawaiian Ladies, whose length was 21 feet and width was perhaps 10 feet.
Before the raising of this flag upon a new Flag Pole built ___ feet tall, his children were called, whose ages are between ___ and ___, to name this Flag Pole and the Flag; when they were asked: What is the name of this Flag Pole and this Flag? They answered together, “Lanatila [Victory];” it was then that the beautiful Flag of Hawaii rose and fluttered in the beloved soft gentle breeze of the motherland; that Flag waves continuously upon this Flag Pole everyday. These are true Hawaiians who have done this first, it is in the uplands of Kalihi past Kamehameha School.

People continue to ask where donations for this blog should be sent. The answer still remains the same. What would be worthwhile is that if you think these posts are worth anything to anyone you know, to pass them on, whether by reposting them electronically on Facebook, Twitter, your own blog, or by email; or by printing them out and handing them off; or the old-fashioned way, by talking about them.
However, if you indeed want to make donations, please consider making them to the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum, Library and Archives! They care for much of the newspapers from which I get my information. They also are the caretakers of journals and letters and books containing historical information that cannot be found anywhere else. Do not forget to designate that your gift is to go to the Library and Archives.

JUDGE JOHN L. KAULUKOU PASSES ON.
After a sickness of a few weeks ago, Judge John L. Kaulukou grew weary of this life, in the hospital at Kealakekua, on this past Saturday, and Judge Kaulukou was laid to rest for all times at his land of birth.
He was in the hospital for an entire month [??? ka noho ana o aku o kona kino lepo maka ilina,] because of a pain in his leg, under the medical care of Dr. H. L. Ross, the government doctor there; and the knowledge of the doctor could not save his life, until he left this world on that day indicated above.
The Judge left behind his widow, Mrs. Susie Kaulukou, and three sons, Abraham G. Kaulukou, the secretary of Kauai County; Lot Kalani Kaulukou, known also as Lot Sebastian, famed for dancing and living in lands afar; and John L. Kaulukou Jr; along with a large family and many friends, grieving with regret for him.
Judge John L. Kaulukou was born at Keauhou, North Kona, Hawaii, on the 1st of June, in the year 1841, therefore, he lived for sixty-seven years and a day, before he left this life of hardships. His father was a Spaniard [Paniolo] and his wife was a Hawaiian, therefore he is also called a hapa Paniolo.
In the younger days of Judge Kaulukou’s life, he was orphaned by his parents leaving this life early, so the responsibility transferred upon his grandfather to educate him; the first step taken to raise him until he became an important giant of the land in the days of the monarchy of Hawaii nei.
