Kamehameha School’s “Handicraft,” 1889.

HANDICRAFT.

The hand wields the scepter.

PRINTED BY BOYS OF KAMEHAMEHA SCHOOL.

HONOLULU, H. I., JANUARY , 1889.

As a convenient medium of communication with the friends and patrons of Kamehameha School, it is believed that Handicraft will receive a cordial welcome. It will be our aim to foster the interest of the public in our school, and to keep prominent the subject of manual training.

We shall make this emphatically a Kamehameha journal. While taking note of all educational matters in our little Kingdom, we shall specially aim to serve the interests of this school, and to promote its growth and development.

[The priceless issues of the Handicraft are just one of the many cool items from Kamehameha Schools’ history found on their Archives page.]

Henry Wilfred Waiau weds Isabela Kaheapuulani Akiona, 1911.

THOSE HAWAIIAN YOUTHS MARRIED.

Mr. Solomon Hanohano, Editor, Aloha oe: Please allow me some space of the pride of the people, so that everyone from Hawaii, island of Keawe, all the way to the sun-snatching island of Manokalanipo (Kauai), knows of the marriage of Henry Wilfred Waiau of the calm seas of Kona, where you had affection in the days of your youth, distinguished by the passing of the cloud banks and the hinano flowers in the calm, with the type-setting girl of the garden island of Manokalanipo.

After Henry Wilfred Waiau spent a year or more on Kauai, Miss Isabela Kaheapuulani Akiona of the island of Manokalanipo, the island that snatches the shining rays of the sun from the tip of Kumukahi and setting at the base of Lehua, proudly took him (H. W. Waiau) and placed him in the sacred stage of the covenant of matrimony at 8 oʻclock in the evening of last Wednesday, and the two of them were joined by Rev. W. Kamau of the church of Lihue, Kauai.

Zero to zero, Kamehameha vs St. Louis? 1926.

KAMEHAMEHA AND ST. LOUIS TIED.

Before a crowd of spectators estimated to number between twelve and thirteen thousand, the football teams of Kamehameha and Sana Lui stood upon the battlefield for the championship of the year, in the afternoon of this past Saturday, on the Kamehameha School field, without there being a victor between those teams; they were tied with no score on either side.

This game between the two teams were one of the most fierce seen in Honolulu nei, filled with emotion; and there were many behind each team, and the worry of a great many spectator was relieved because neither side took the victory for themselves. Continue reading

Transfer of treasures of the National Museum to the Bishop Museum, 1891.

SLIPPING AWAY.

Barring any obstacles, during some of the days of this week, the location of the artifacts housed in the National Museum Office at Aliiolani Hale will be transferred to the Bishop Museum Office at Kamehameha School, to go under the care of Prof. W. S. Brigham of the Bishop Museum.

If the artifacts of the Nation are moved to their intended new nest, then that office will be open for other Government Agencies, like the Department of Land Survey, and its space will become an office for the two houses, and that is great because it is directly adjacent to the Attorney General’s Office; but this all depends on the decision of the one who sings.

NOT COURTEOUS

Treatment of Ladies at Bishop Museum.

An Open Protest to the Trustees of the Kamehameha Schools.

MR. EDITOR:—The undersigned with three other ladies, Hawaiians of the highest respectabily, standing and position, with five little children, were sitting this morning in the shade of the Kamehameha Museum enjoying the fine showing made by the naval men drilling on the College campus. Chairs had been offered by a Kamehameha graduate, he placing them on the grass plot adjoining the Museum. After a little while, Mr. Brigham, the curator of the Museum, drove by within a few feet of us. He scowled most savagely at us. In a few minutes a Portuguese workman came to order us away from the place.

As it has invariably been the custom to throw the College grounds open to the public when any sort of a public or semi-public show is taking place within its precincts, we did not pay any attention to his orders, thinking it a piece of officiousness on the part of an ignorant person, and the man went away. After a while the man re-appeared and ordered us off again, saying he was acting by Brigham’s orders, and to use force if necessary. He took hold of the chair of the wife of a prominent official and tipped it partly over. She sprang up to avoid a fall, as did two other ladies. I, being at the very corner of the building and a little in advance of the others did not perceive the man until he had taken hold of my chair and had partly spilled me on my knee. I turned around to protest, when he grabbed my arm and pulled me out of my chair, saying “you get out of this, those are my orders from Mr. Brigham. If you don’t go yourself, I make you go. Mr. Brigham don’t allow any one to get on this grass.”

There were quite a number of carriages standing around, occupied by spectators of the drill.

The actions of the Portuguese were so rough and insulting that the attention of quite a number were attracted to our forcible ejectment. Continue reading
