The Newest Steamer in the Pacific

TODAY!

Another stride of progress is recorded in the annals of inter-island travel in the Hawaiian Islands—by the arrival of the newly completed steamship Haleakala in her home port!

The coming of the Haleakala brings with it the beginning of a new era of travel service on this splendid new ship that is replete with comfort and convenience. Continue reading

WANTED: NICE NEW NAME FOR NEW INTER-ISLAND STEAMER

Have you a suggestion for a name for the Inter-Island company’s new and palatial steamer for the Honolulu-Hilo run?

J. M. Dowsett, a director of the company, yesterday stated that the company has not selected a name, and so far had not discussed a name, but he added that suggestions would be welcome from the public. Continue reading

New steamship planned by the Inter-Island Steam Navigation Company, 1920.

A new steamship is being considered

Honolulu, Dec. 13. Reliable news has been heard that the Officers of the Inter-Island Steam Navigation Company [Hui Mokuahi Holoholo Pili Aina] has decided to build a new large steamship bigger than the Mauna Kea in place of the Mauna Kea that is now in service. And it will run three times a week, and it will be a steamer that carries 250 passengers in the stern and it will be like the Steamship Alameda that travelled between San Francisco and Honolulu some years ago.

Explosive eruption, 1924.

The Deeds of Madame Pele, the Woman of the Pit, are Mystical.

Many Lives Were Spared from the Volcanic Rocks.

Rocks and Ash were Spewed into the Air When the Volcanic Explosion Occurred Last Tuesday

Hilo, May 13.—Many lives were spared this evening, because of the foreseeing of trouble by Thomas E. Boles, the superintendent of the national parks [paka lahui] of Hawaii, and by him preventing people from going to see the volcanic crater of Halemaumau a few minutes before the strong volcanic explosion, sending large rocks to a distance of 2000 feet. Volcanic ash was spewed 1800 [feet] in the air above the crater. Continue reading

The Mikahala arrives in Honolulu, 1887.

THE NEW STEAMSHIP ‘MIKAHALA.’

At 10 o’clock a.m. of Wednesday, January 12,  the steamer replacing the Paeli, which ran aground off Niihau, of the Inter-Island Steam Navigation Company [Hui Hooholo Mokuahi Pili Aina], named the Mikahala and captained by Captain B. B. Hampstead, arrived at Honolulu Harbor, reaching here in 8 days and 20 hours.

This new steamship was built in Port Blakely by the ship builders, the Hall Brothers. And from here, she was sent using a sail to San Francisco, where the machinery and steam engine of the Paeli was salvaged and waited to be laid out in her wide belly. Everything was installed there and when it was all complete, it set off for here.

The farthest the steamer went was on the second day after it left San Francisco, for it travelled 265 miles that day, and its shortest day was 230 miles. Therefore, its average speed was a little over 10 miles per hour.

The length of this ship is 150 feet and the width is 29 feet; its depth is 14 feet. Its tonnage according to the captain is 420. Its body is a little larger than the Paeli, and a little smaller than the Malulani.

Its design is similar in every manner with the Malulani, and so too are the rooms and the decks. There are 8 double state rooms on the upper deck, and 8 rooms below in the stern.

The name of this new steamship is the name of Mrs. M. E. Foster [Mary E. Foster], the wife of the President of the Inter-Island Steam Navigation Company.

This steamer will be set aside for Kauai under Captain Freeman, and next week, it will be sent to her ports for the first time.

[It is quite the strange coincidence that this ship named Mikahala (after the Hawaiian name of Mary E. Foster) is the same ship that ran into and sank the other ship named for her, the Mary E. Foster! See here for the article reporting the accident in 1894.]

The new steamship, the Mikahala, 1887.

The New Steamship.

This Wednesday, the new steamer of Foster [Poka] and company arrived; 8 days from San Francisco. “Mikahala” is its name, and it was named after the name of Mrs. J. Robinson, the wife of James [Kimo] of Pakaka. It is a large vessel like the Lilinoe, and it is speedy. We hear that it is headed for Kauai in the coming days. We do not know who the Captain is.
