THE UMBILICAL CORD OF THE SIBLINGS ARE CUT.

This is something we made known from the very beginning, during the days when the tender-eyed ladies of the Women’s Central Patriotic League [Ahahui Aloha Aina Kuwaena o na Wahine] were drawing away [huki laweau]; when their kindling was not placed where the flames were burning, and now we received by way of the Kinau on Saturday night, that the Women’s Patriotic League of Hilo requested to dissolve their membership under the Women’s Central Patriotic League here in Honolulu; they, who we restrained from the beginning, not to do what the majority of the nation does not want, and here is the result; the umbilical cords of the siblings are cut, by way of a Memorial from there, and that is what is below, so that it is seen by everyone without fail.

Announcement of the Hawaiian Patriotic League.

Keep the Peace.

I have been ordered by the Executive Committee [Aha Hooko] of the Central Hawaiian Patriotic League of Honolulu, to instruct all of the Leaders and the members of the Ahahui Aloha Aina across the Archipelago, being that it is known that on the 4th of July, 1894, on that day, the Provisional Government will proclaim a new Constitution, and the Republic of Hawaii, and at that time, or perhaps before that time, perhaps Martial Law [Kanawai Koa] will be proclaimed.
