Independence Day, 1867.

In the Announcements Column of the Government’s English newspaper [Hawaiian Gazette] of yesterday, we saw an announcement calling all those who want to celebrate the coming 28th of November, to all come down to the reading room of the Hotel of Kaopuaua to discuss it tomorrow night, Friday. This is what the haole are doing; where are the Hawaiians for whom this day is truly for?

DEATH OF DAVID KANEWANUI, EDITOR OF WEEKLY KUOKOA

THE LATE DAVID KANEWANUI.

THE many friends of David Kanewanui will learn with sorrow of his death, as the result of the gunshot wound received the evening of May 6. It occured early yesterday afternoon at the Queen’s Hospital.

David Kanewanui was born on the Island of Kauai twenty-six years ago. He graduated from Kamehameha School in 1894 and shortly afterwards accepted a position as teacher in the school at Olowalu, where he taught for two years. From Olowalu he went to the Hilo Boarding School, where he taught for another two years, coming from there to Honolulu to take a clerkship in the Auditor’s office.

Something over a year ago the Gazette Company was fortunate enough to secure his services as editor of the Nupepa Kuokoa, which position he filled with ability up to the time of the accident.

The popularity and circulation of the Kuokoa grew under his editorship, for his heart was in his work and he felt that he was doing something for his people. All subjects were handled for what he believed to be the best interests of the Hawaiians, and this being recognized, gave him great influence.

He was always courteous and pleasant and was a great favorite with his co-workers and with the young Hawaiians, many of whom looked to him for counsel and advice.

A fine baseball player, he was a member of the Kamehameha team and was captain of the Hawaiian Gazette Co.’s team.

The funeral, to be announced after the post-mortem, will take place from Kamehameha chapel.

TO THE LAHUI HAWAII:—

We saw in the newspaper “Hawaiian Gazette” of February 2, 1881, where it states, that the Hawaiian Government constantly sends money to Mr. Moreno for us, and from within this sum, he supports himself.

Without counting the $800 that the Government sent for us by way of Mr. Martin of Paris, that was soon spent on our many expenses—for the trains, steamships, hotels, and so forth; while being careful with our spending; Mr. Moreno took care of the remainder with his own money, from the day we left Paris until this day here in Rome. This is the truth, for we saw this with our own eyes.

Therefore, what the “Hawaiian Gazette” said was plain deception.

To attest to the truth, we affix our names.

Your children in foreign lands,

Robert W. Wilcox,
