Evelyn Pihana Loaaole passes on, 1924.

GONE ON THE PATH OF NO RETURN IS MRS. EVELYN PIHANA LOAAOLE

Mr. Solomon Hanohano, Aloha kaua:—Please allow me a little space of our pride, which will flash quickly the parcel of tears placed above so that the many friends of my dearly beloved wahine who has gone on the road of no return will see, as well as the end of it all.  To all from the great, wide Hawaii, island of Keawe all the way to Niihau, the island that snatches away the sun, Mrs. Evelyn Pihana Loaaole has gone, just as the Holy Book says,…

MRS. EVELYN PIHANA LOAAOLE

…the life of man is but a puff of smoke which appears and disappears, it is God who giveth and He who then taketh away. Blessed be his name.

After being ill for four days, my dear wife left me, her kane, and our hanai child. On the 27th of Feb., she was taken to the Queen’s Hospital by the doctor, and that evening at 7 o’clock she grew weary of this life, and her spirit returned to He who created it, and her body went under the care of Silva, and on the first of March her body was taken out for the family, the acquaintances and friends of my dear wife to view.

I, her husband, give my thanks to all the family and to the association, Ka Hale o na Alii o Hawaii, for your helping me from the watching over the body of my wife; and to the friends who came and stayed awake through that night with us, and also for the gifts of flowers.

Please accept this expression of thanks, and may the Lord bless us all with aloha.

Me with sadness,

CHARLES MAKEPA LOAAOLE,

and the Ohana.

THE PARTY OF HAWAIIANS  WAS FILLED WITH ENTHUSIASM

Hawaiians Gathered at the Young Hotel at the Invitation of Prince Kalanianaole

HEARD WAS IDEAS FOR UNIFICATION

Desired that Hawaiians Stand Together as a People

On the sixth floor of the Young Hotel, at noon this past Tuesday, the Hawaiians of this town gathered for the first time, for a luncheon amid enthusiasm and joy, and this will be a regular thing, like the haole regularly meet at noon on Wednesdays.

This was a meeting organized by Prince Kalanianaole, and Hawaiians of good standing who live here in town were invited to attend, without attention being paid to political affiliation; it is true, many Hawaiians came, and the total number was about seventy-one; and being that this is just the beginning, it will be more full in the future, should this gathering at lunch become a regular thing.

At this meeting was Prince Kalanianaole, the chairman of this meeting and luncheon, and also Mayor Fern, Circuit Judge Heen, Rev. Akaiko Akana, Senators John H. Wise and Charles E. King, Representative Kumalae, Sheriff Charles H. Rose, and some other Hawaiian leaders of town; and everyone gathered there that afternoon seemed spirited to stand shoulder to shoulder, chest to chest, in all things; to lift this lahui from the low level to be equal with the other ethnicities in all aspects.

In order to move forward the agenda for which the Hawaiians gathered at that luncheon, Prince Kalanianaole explained that he greatly wished that the Hawaiian people would think as one, and as a means to that ends, he believes that meeting together in one place by holding regular luncheons of that sort, is where you’d discuss things and hear explanation from different people on all questions regarding the well-being of Hawaiians.

“The great problem seen amongst us, as a people,” according to him, is that we don’t cooperate; we all stand independently, and when we want good works to be done, it is very hard to accomplish for we lack unity and strength.

“Unifying ourselves, and listening to people talk about things that will benefit this lahui is very important for the perpetuation of the lahui; and as we gather regularly at meals of this sort, we will become familiar with each other, and we will hear ideas that should be carried out, and we will be seen as a lahui.”

Some time was spent by Prince Kalanianaole explaining the goals of that gathering while his speech was encouraged by applause, then he called up Circuit Judge Heen to give a few words of clarification before the crowd.

According to him, he was not prepared with a clear topic to talk about, however, he was in agreement with Prince Kalanianaole; all Hawaiians must stand together and work as one in all endeavors that will better themselves as a lahui.

J. Ordenstein, John H. Wise, Charles Achi, Jr., Fred Beckley, Charles E. King, Charles Dwight, Mayor Fern, and Rev. Akaiko Akana were called to explain their overall thoughts as to what is to be done to benefit Hawaiians from here forth.

Rev. Akaiko Akana shared his thoughts; when Hawaiians go back to their traditional occupations [?] and cherish their way of life, that is the only way Hawaiians will be blessed.

The big problem with this lahui, according to him, is the lack of knowledge and readiness to go into business for themselves and so too with being economical; when these important things are acquired by Hawaiians, they will be able to climb to a high level.

Mr. Wise and Mayor Fern were some who spoke of their ideas on the question of leasing a building [?], and their ideas were heard with much enthusiasm.

Before the meeting was adjourned, one idea was approved, to draft a constitution for a club, and to place it in the hands of a committee to lay out the foundation and mission that this association of Hawaiians would carry out.
