Alexander Kalei Kamahele and Mabel Kaholomoku Harvest wed, 1947.

Joined Together

One hour following the joining of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Lindsey¹ in the covenant of marriage, those youths, Alexander Kalei Kamahele and Mabel Kaholomoku Harvest appeared at Haili Church and the service to make them man and wife was carried out by Rev. Moses Moku. This act was carried out in the afternoon of November 29.

After they were married, those invited, and the ohana followed on [?? kolomoku] to the home of the parents of the young man to join in on the celebration of the happiness of the young ones.

The family could not attend both of the parties, because Alexander Kamahele is a cousin of Juliet’s.

The party was filled, and after the celebrating, and after some time, the youths left to spend their honeymoon [mahina meli].

May these young ones be accompanied by much good fortune, and may happiness reside with them living as man and wife.

Joseph Nawahi, born on this day in 1842, was not only a patritot, but a beautiful singer to boot, 1875.

Relating to Kaumakapili Church.

In the announcement of the sweet-voiced Oo birds of Maemae, Mrs. Emma Dillingham [Ema Dilinahama] and Miss Nelly Judd [Nele Judd], those who love music (both English and Hawaiian) as well as those who love helping and donating to the troubled kingdom of the Lord in some way. There will be held a Grand Concert at Kaumakapili on the night of the 23rd of this month, for the difficulties of Kaumakapili Church. There are four chosen by the Leadership of Kaumakapili as a committee to prepare mele to excite the heart and to whet the appetite. Mr. Kiha, the leader of the Kaumakapili Choir is one of them, and the son of the Kanilehua rain, the sweet-voiced bird of Haili (Joseph Kahooluhi) is another, who will only be singing solos; those singing were chosen carefully from amongst the beautiful-voiced Oo birds of Kaupea. His songs will be mixed in amongst theirs, “So that the hala will be sectioned in with the lehua; wonderful is Hilo, Hilo Hanakahi.”

[We all know that Joseph Kahooluhi Nawahiokalaniopuu was one of the great patriots of all times, and we even know about his fine painting skills, but did you know that he composed mele and that he had a sweet singing voice? The newspapers are like treasure boxes filled with all sorts of pearls.]

Fish market affected by weather, 1929.


Hilo, Dec. 22—According to a report by the fish market association of Hilo, they said that there is a marked decrease in the amount of fish brought in to the fish markets of Hilo nei, and this is a result of the difficulty brought on by the very stormy seas these days. The pull of the currents is very strong, and this occurs in the fishing waters, so the fishing boats cannot head straight for them; the only fish caught by the large fishing vessels of Hilo are Ahi and other fish from far outside of the normal fishing areas of Hilo.

Here however are the Japanese, still persevering these stormy conditions of the sea by carrying out their regular work. And the determined fishermen are reaping the benefits of their persistence.

If those who eat fish are without fresh fish, here are nicely-salted opelu being sold at the pastor’s residence of Haili and it is being sold for a good price; it is fish salted well by the expert fish salters of Kapalaoa. Ring the Telephone Number 168, and the dried opelu in forties [kaau] will be delivered to your house.
