MOOHEAU HALE, GIFT OF ADMIRAL BECKLEY TO HILO’S PEOPLE.
On the morning of the 2nd of January, Mooheau Park in Hilo was entered with fitting pomp. President Holmes of the Board of Trade [Papa o na Hana] gave a speech, and Admiral Beckley read his response, and then Attorney Le Blonde spoke. The song, Mooheau March was played by the band, and the Admiral received many thanks and there was held a luau. That evening, there was a great ball.
[I wonder what this march sounded like composed special for this event by Joaquim Carvalho. For more on Professor Carvalho (and if you can read Portuguese) see this page on Portuguese immigration and band music in Hawaii nei.]
