Patriots from Kauai, 1894.

[Found under: “NU HOU KULOKO.”]

Hawaiian patriots of Hanalei, Kauai were brought suit against by the Census Taker and Tax Collector of the district of Hanalei, Kauai; and they were fined by the court. The two agreed to do go and do road work. The reason they went to do road work was not because they didn’t have the money, but it was because they did not want even a bit of their money going to help the Peacock Government. These Hawaiians have great steadfastness and true patriotism. The reason that F. K. Nanui, Jr. was quickly prosecuted because he was instructing people not to pay their taxes to this government.
