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


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.

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

Construction of the Bishop Museum, 1889.


The Kinau brought this morning two slabs from a heathen temple or heiau at Kapoho, Puna, Hawaii. They are to be placed in the Bishop Museum now in course of erection at the Kamehameha school grounds. Some of the stones in this same temple had a mark of a cross on them, supposed to have been made by the Spaniards when voyaging to these islands years and years ago.

Going to represent Kamehameha School at the Territory of Hawaii Conference of the National Student Association [? ahahuina Teritori o Hawaii o ka Haumana o ka ahahui Aupuni], are four girls from the girls’ school. This conference was held at Farrington High School from the 22nd to the 24th of November.

Charlotte Anna Morris, Ruth Needham, children class; Ellen Miller, Emelia Kaopua, youths; were the girls who represented the school. The delegates came from many different schools, from Kauai, Hawaii, Maui, Molokai, and Oahu.

The main reason for this meeting was to think over the problems that come before the school.

This coming year, the meeting will be held on Hawaii.

The girls who went to the meeting last year were Patricia Federcell, Alama Ayers, Louise Federcell and Marjorie Morris.

Ainsley Mahikoa, who graduated with the class of 1930 from Kamehameha School for Boys, is at University of Southern California.

He is there studying the social sciences [? ouli] and that includes the study of different peoples and their knowledge. He is also working on “The teachings of Jesus pertaining to life” of which he related that he gained a lot. He also said that there is a lot in his reading pertaining to his line of work. His studies are related to his work at the Y. M. C. A.

Mr. Mahikoa is living with eight other boys who went there together from Hawaii. They sit together at one table to discuss their studies as if they were living at home.

According to his explanation, that Mr. Mahikoa has gained a lot of knowledge of other peoples at that University. In his letter, he said that one night, there was a Japanese, Chinese, American, Italian, Czechoslovakian, sitting around his table with him, a Hawaiian.

There were three boys from USC who were in an automobile accident who live with him in the same dorm along with Ainsley, and one of them lost his life.

Mr. Mahikoa is a counsellor for the boys at the Central Y.M.C.A. and it is said that the boys who were in that accident were ones who liked to have fun, and because Mahikoa was used to the ways of boys, he was the only one that could talk to them without being talked back to.

[I was assuming that all of the news written in by Kamehameha students of that time would be done in English, but happily it was not so!]

Sent to Minnesota


Aboard the Clipper Ship, S. N. Castle, were taken koa trees from the two Kona [North and South Kona] for cases and other decorations for the Museum standing at the Kamehameha School. The koa trees will be taken to San Francisco and from there they will be taken aboard steam locomotive to Minnesota, and there they will be made into beautiful glass cases [ume aniani] or perhaps beautiful stairs for the planned annex for the Museum.

These koa trees were selected from places in Kona, Hawaii, and when they are fashioned, they will be fine decorations. When the idea for a new annex first came up, the lack of koa was noticed, being that only native woods were wanted for the interior. People were soon sent to the two Kona to search for koa fitting for the purpose, and when it was found, it was sent here to Honolulu. All together, the gathered lumber totals 26,000 feet. They weigh seven tons. Being that the job was given to a company in Minnesota, the koa was sent there, and from there it will return to Hawaii nei.

Remembrance of the Birthday of the Founding Lady.

The 19th of December is a much celebrated day for Kamehameha School, for it is the day of birth of the lady, Bernice Pauahi Bishop, the one who came up with the idea to set aside her great estate for the educating of the youth of her people in the many fields of knowledge and in living healthily. Therefore on the past Thursday, the day was commemorated on the grounds of the school, by dedicating the Girls’ School and the Museum.

At 8 o’clock in the morning, perhaps 100 boys were dressed in military uniform and put aboard and rode trolleys [kaa hali ohua nunui], getting off at the corner of Nuuanu and King Streets, and from there they marched with lei, led by the school’s band in front, with Prof. H. Berger as the conductor, until the crypt of the alii at Mauna Ala, where they decorated the grave of the honorable Hawaiian woman for whom the day was for.

2 o’clock in the afternoon was the time for the dedication in Bishop Hall [Bihopa Hale]. Before the hour, the room was filled with intimates and friends of the school with a majority outside.

Rev. C. M. Hyde, D. D.; Mrs. A. A. Haalelea; Col. W. F. Allen; Miss Dodge; and Rev. J. Waiamau were sitting in a raised area. And when the time came, Rev. J. Waiamau began with a prayer. After that was a hymn by the school, and then Doctor Hyde gave a short speech of welcome of which the gist was that these structures were built not just to memorialize the name of the founder, but for the continued benefit of those who it is hoped will emulate her life. Thereafter…


he moved on to matters dealing with Bishop’s desire to build a museum, and the story of Bishop’s planning given under the board of trustees, and so forth.

Then Col. W. F. Allen was called up as a representative for Mr. Bishop to give some words, and he spoke shortly in this manner:

I know that you all regret the absence of Mr. Bishop on this occasion, and when asked to represent and speak for him I should much rather have declined but felt it a duty to accept. That Mr. Bishop is with you today in spirit you all know, and though absent in person, he interest in these schools never wanes. By correspondence with the trustees, principals, and others, he has kept well posted in all the progress you have made. On this the natal day of Bernice Pauahi Bishop, the founders day of this Institution, such a grand monument to her love and care for her people, it is beyond my powers to do justice to the occasion or theme. Both Mrs. Bishop and her husband fully realized that the proper care and teaching of the young was the only way to insure the stability of the people, and so they have devoted their best thought, and much of their property to carry out these ideas.

To you, trustees, principals and teachers the responsibility of carrying out the wishes of the founders of this institution belongs, and from the experience of the few years since the opening, no fears are entertained of the ultimate result.

To you, boys and girls of Kamehameha School, I would say that to show your appreciation of the great gifts of your benefactors, you should ever strive to take advantage of all that is here offered you, so that in the future you can show by your industrious and virtuous lives what the Kamehameha School has done for you.

On behalf of Mr. Bishop, I thank you all for showing such an appreciation for the grand work and memory of the founder of this institution—Bernice Pauahi Bishop. [English for W. F. Allen’s speech taken from Hawaiian Star, 12/19/1894, p. 3.]

Then Dr. Hyde spoke about Mrs. Pauahi Bishop’s life, and read the minutes of meetings of the Board of Trustees as well as some appropriate words about Pauahi.

Mrs. A. A. Haalelea was introduced before the assembly because she was one of the speakers, and she read the following speech below:

O Associates and Friends, Parents and Youth of the Hawaiian People:

With all of you is my aloha:—

Because of the decision of the trustees of the estate of Bernice Pauahi Bishop, I was invited on this day to speak a bit about the Honorable one for whose birthday we are gathered.

The first thing to come to mind, is that it was the aloha of this alii which initiated this greatest work of beauty and fame, that is her idea to build boarding schools for the Hawaiian children to help educate the youth of her homeland. That was her great desire and spoke often things pertaining to the good and benefit of the lahui. [Image is unclear for a number of lines.] She was devout and vigilant in her Christian duties; she undertook many worthy causes to help those in need, and she is a fine example for all to follow after in good deeds. She was an alii who was thought much of and well loved by the people.

The second point: upon you, O Girls, is the inheritance of education, something our kupuna did not dream of. That being for you is prepared some boarding schools where you can find knowledge that will be truly valuable for you. So you will be indebted for the great kindness given upon you at no expense or trouble. Therefore, strive with great effort to acquire this precious treasure, a treasure more beautiful than gold or any of the other riches of this world; should you gain an education, there is no one that can take it away from you. Listen with aloha to the teachings of your instructors, pay attention to the lessons, be humble to their instruction, and be neat and clean in your daily life. Constantly recall the character of the alii Pauahi: her purity, righteousness, and decorum in actions and words. Always strive for the honorable standing of a woman who lives properly. In that way, you will be blessed. And in that way you will be carrying out the desire of your Father in heaven.

The last thought goes to you, O Parents.—Upon you lie the beginnings of the good character of your children…


…by your guidance will your children be upright or not so. Within your hands is the power to steer the children towards all that you desire. The parents are examples for the children; for instance, how a parent acts is what a child will follow. Should your actions and your instructions contradict those of the teachers’, then what is taught to them will be wasted. Therefore, O Parents, please strive to support and cooperate with the teachers on the pathway to knowledge, so that our children may reach a high level in all fine occupations, an this will make the effort worthwhile, and you, O Parents, will rejoice.

With these three plies, that being the teachers, the students, and the parents, we can get a strong cord which will hold fast and push forward the righteousness and blessings of the lahui for the coming age. In that way will God bless us in all our endeavors.

At the end of her speech, the Kamehameha band played a song, then Dr. Hyde read the portion of the will of Mrs. Pauahi Bishop giving her wealth for the building and caring for the Kamehameha School. This is when the keys of the Girls’ School handed over to Miss Pope, the principal, and she took the keys with some appropriate words, and so forth.

The activities were let out with the singing of the students, along with the band. When that was done, the crowd went in to see the Museum.

After that, some fun activities for the children were held.
