Mele inoa for Princess Kaiulani by Eleanor Kekoaohiwaikalani Prendergast, 1893.


A he Wehi keia no Kaiulani
No ka Wohi kukahi lei a Kapili
A he pua Loke no Ainahau
Maoli Iliahi no Hawaii
Opuu liko hou no ka Hikina
No ka La hiki mai ma Kumukahi
Hookahi mea hou ua lono ia
Ma ke Kapikala nani a o Honolulu
A he lono Lanakila no ka Lahui
Me ka noho Kalaunu a o na Lani
Ua kui e ka lohe puni ke Kaona
Ua mau ke Ea o ka Aina
Welo haaheo e ka Hae Hawaii
Ma na welelau a o ka Honua
Aohe hana e a ka puuwai
A e pauma nei me ke aloha
Ua piha ka manao i ka uilani
No ka lono hauoli ua hiki mai
I lawea mai nei o ka Monowai
Nene aukai a o ka moana
Nawai no la e pakele aku
A he hana noii na ka imi loa
He loaa i ka welelau lihilihi
I ke kii hooheno a ka onohi
He Onohi pua ia no ke Kalaunu
A he lei no Kalani puuwai Kila
Kilakila kapukapu ke ike aku
Ka hiona o Kalaniahilapalapa
Me he pua hau ala no Maluaka
Ka popohe ohaoha i ka lihi wai
Nawai e ole hooheno ia
A he liko Ahihi no Panaewa
Aia i ka nua lehua o Hilo
Ka paia aala i ka uka o Puna
Ko leo e Kalani kuu i ka nahe
Kaili puuwai ke lohe aku
Pupukanioe no ke kuahiwi
Kahuli leo lea no kanahele
Ua nani hiehie oe e Kahiwa
E ka Wohi kukahi a o Hawaii
Haina ko Wehi kau i ka Hano
O Kawekiulani kuu Haku ia.

Miss Kekoaohiwaikalani,
Puahaulani Hale.

The Pacific Commercial Advertiser ridicules the women of the Patriotic League, 1893.


They Object to the Wording of a Memorial.

The Hawaiian Women’s Patriotic League held its third business meeting yesterday morning at Arion Hall. Mrs. F. W. Macfarlane, President, called the meeting to order promptly at 10 o’clock. After reading the minutes by the Secretary, Mrs. Grace Kahalewai, the proposed memorial to United States Commissioner Jas. H. Blount was taken up. The Secretary read it once in Hawaiian, but the ladies in the rear part of the building could not hear her. They requested her to again read the rather lengthy memorial, which was done. The memorial was briefly in this wise: Continue reading

On a beautiful lawn at the entrance of Nuuanu valley, overlooking this city, the harbor and ocean beyond, stands the Royal Mausoleum, erected by the Hawaiian Government, as the resting place of the remains of the Royal Family of Hawaii and a few of their greatest benefactors. It is built in the Gothic style of architecture, of concrete stone, with the lawn handsomely laid out with walks and studded with trees, the whole presenting from the avenue an attractive appearance.

Princess Kaiulani proclaimed heir of the crown, 1891.

By Authority


We, LILIUOKALANI, by the Grace of God, Queen of the Hawaiian Islands, agreeably to Article twenty-second of the Constitution of the Hawaiian Kingdom, do hereby appoint, failing an heir of Our body, Our beloved Subject and Niece Her Royal Highness VICTORIA KAWEKIU KAIULANI LUNALILO KALANINUIAHILAPALAPA to be Our Successor on the Throne after it shall have pleased God to call Us hence.

Done at Iolani Palace in Honolulu, this ninth day of March, in the year of Our Lord one thousand eight hundred and ninety-one.


By the Queen:

Samuel Parker,

Minister of Foreign Affairs.

[Sometimes there are typesetting errors in newspapers, which is why important numbers are often given in numeric form as well as in words. The Hawaiian proclamation found in the Leo o ka Lahui only used the numeric form of the date, and the typesetter seems to have flipped the “9” over.]

Morning Call and Princess Kaiulani’s protest, 1893.


Kaiulani Will Come to America in Her Own Interest.

She Was Sent Away to Be Educated, and Now She Is Kept In Ignorance.

Special to The Morning Call.

London, Feb. 18.—The Princess Kaiulani sends the following address to the American people:

“Four years ago, at the request of Thurston, the Hawaiian Cabinet Minister, I was sent away to England to be educated privately and fitted  for the position which, by the constitution of Hawaii, I was to inherit.

“All these years I have patiently and in exile striven to fit myself for my return this year to my country.

“I am now told that Thurston is in Washington asking you to take away my flag and my throne. No one tells me even this officially. Have I done anything wrong that this wrong should be done me and my people?

“I am coming to Washington to plead for my throne, my nation and my flag. Will not the great American people hear me?


Washington, Feb. 18.—While the annexation commissioners were paying their respects to Secretary Elkins at the War Department this morning their diplomatic antagonist, Paul Neumann, the ex-Queen’s representative, was in another part of the building in consultation with acting Secretary Wharton of the State Department, with whom he had a long talk concerning the object of his visit. Wharton, of course, could do nothing, and Neumann expressed himself as satisfied. His chance for successfully representing the claims of the ex-Queen lay through the medium of Congress.

Prince David said: “We do not intend to make a struggle against annexation. If the United States Government sees fit to annex Hawaii we shall make no complaint.”

[Although the same quote was printed in newspapers across America, what each newspaper did with the title varies. Also, what they put next to the article should be looked at as well. The Morning Call was printed in San Francisco.

The quote by David Kawananakoa at the bottom is interesting.]
