We were happy to see our King Aliiolani Kapuaiwa in good health. Last week Saturday he was taken by the steamship Pele to Hanauma on the south-east of Oahu nei. He is at leisure there, enjoying the softly blowing Hoolua wind, and the flying sea spray. He perhaps has become covered by sea spray.
The King was in town on Wednesday and Friday; and on Saturday, he came into town once more to get his picture taken at the photography studio of Mr. Weed.
These past days, the committees crowded into the residence of His Highness M. Kekuanaoa, in order to fulfill the wants of the people for the 31st of July.
Her Highness Princess Kamamalu, accompanied by the Hon. D. Kalakaua, went to see the iron two-masted schooner of Captain Hanham [Kapena Hanamu]. That same evening, the Dowager Queen held a party for the young chiefs and chiefesses at Haimoeipo.
Perhaps this Thursday, the King will prepare to sail to Molokai aboard the Themis [Temesi]

When she was little, she was taken as hanai by Kinau. She was educated at the Royal School, the school for children of alii. At the school, she was a student of Mr. and Mrs. Amos Cooke and she was one of the smartest of the children of the school.
While she was going to school, she met Mr. Charles Reed Bishop. Her parents did not approve of this because they wanted their daughter to marry within the Kamehameha line. With this in mind, they built a home for Pauahi and called this home Haleakala.

Kamehameha V., who ascended the throne of the Hawaiian Islands upon the death of Kamehameha IV. in 1863.
Before ascending the throne Kamehameha V. had acted as Minister of the Interior under Kamehameha IV. He had a very strong will, so that he was not Minister in name alone, but attended faithfully to the duties of his office. Continue reading →
