“Kuu Moi,” a patriotic mele by Clarence E. Edwords, 1896.

Kuu Moi.

Oh Lydia, Heaven born child of the sun!
Liliuokalani, aloha, kuu Moi!
True sovereign of the sun kissed isles of the sea,
Let it not be said that they race is now run.
How shall the intruders for their crimes atone?
For the vile indignities cast upon thee?
Oh, what, indeed, should the fit punishment be
For those who so basely robbed thee of thy throne?
Even now with stones they children are fed;
Aye, but it were better that they should be dead
Than pledged allegiance to the foreign born band,
Or take subsistence from their accursed hand.
Akua mana loa forbid it be said
That thy people deserted their native land.

Clarence E. Edwords.

[Does anyone know the story of Clarence E. Edwords?? There are some nice references to what is happens with the patriots of the Royal Hawaiian Band choosing to eat stones before pledging allegiance to the Provisional Government. Ellen Predergast composes “Mele Ai Pohaku,” and Clarence E. Edwords composes “Kuu Moi.”]

HE INOA NO NA KEIKI O KA BANA LAHUI.

Kaulana na pua a o Hawaii
Kupaa mahope o ka aina

Palapala alunu me ka pakaha
Pane mai Hawaii Nui o Keawe

Royal Hawaiian Band and “Kaulana na Pua,” 1893.

NIGHT OF GREAT ENTERTAINMENT.¹

There were many people who arrived at the Night of Entertainment by the Royal Hawaiian Band [Bana Lahui Hawaii], at the Hawaiian Hotel on the evening of this past Tuesday. There were perhaps 5,000 people of all ethnicities who showed up to listen to those beautiful singers of Hawaii. Because of your fine work, O Patriots, therefore the lahui showed its appreciation to you all, with them always filling the audiences of all the performances you give. The singing voices were sweet, and the most acclaimed was your “Mele Ai Pohaku.” The audience went home with happy hearts because of the mele that were played, along with the singing. When will the next performance be? Send in a notice in advance, and we will inform the multitudes and the friends of the occasion.

HE WEHI NO KA LAHUI.

He inoa keia no ka lahui
Na ewe hanau o ka aina

A ka I a ka Mahi me ka Palena
E ala e lohe i ka welina

A he kolopa nana e une
Na pali kapu a o Kilauea
Ua paa i ke ahi a ka Wahine

I ke o-i ana iho paa i ka mole
Keehi kulana i Ainaike

Ua piha i ka ono me ke kuhinia

Na manu Aiko o ka Hikina mai

Ka makani kupa hoi a he aheahe

E poina ole ai ke hoomanao

O ke anuenue e pipio ana

A he lei kaimana no ka lahui
E ola kakou a pau loa
Ma ka inoa o ka Haku Mana Loa

He mele lahui no Hawaii.
