No ka Lanakila o Hawaii.

2nd. Ua nani ka pua o ka Ilima

Kahiko mau no Hawaii.

Honolulu, Feb. 10, 1893.

[This is perhaps the very first publication of Ellen Kekoaohiwaikalani Prendergast’s “Kaulana na Pua:” “An Adornment for the Patriots.” Was the idea about eating stones not in the original composition and added on after the Hawaiian National Band [Bana Lahui] was told by Herny Berger that they would have to sign their names to the annexation club roll lest they end up having to eat stones? The first time it seems that the lines about eating stones was published was under the title “He Inoa no na Keiki o ka Bana Lahui” [A Name Song for the Boys of the Hawaiian National Band]  in 3/23/1893 on the second page of Hawaii Holomua.]

Royal Hawaiian Band and “Kaulana na Pua,” 1893.

NIGHT OF GREAT ENTERTAINMENT.¹

There were many people who arrived at the Night of Entertainment by the Royal Hawaiian Band [Bana Lahui Hawaii], at the Hawaiian Hotel on the evening of this past Tuesday. There were perhaps 5,000 people of all ethnicities who showed up to listen to those beautiful singers of Hawaii. Because of your fine work, O Patriots, therefore the lahui showed its appreciation to you all, with them always filling the audiences of all the performances you give. The singing voices were sweet, and the most acclaimed was your “Mele Ai Pohaku.” The audience went home with happy hearts because of the mele that were played, along with the singing. When will the next performance be? Send in a notice in advance, and we will inform the multitudes and the friends of the occasion.

HE WEHI NO KA LAHUI.

Na ewe hanau o ka aina
Na pua na mamo na oiwi
A ka I a ka Mahi me ka Palena
E ala e lohe i ka welina

E ola kakou a pau loa

HE WEHI KAULANA NO KA LAHUI.

Eia Hawaii ua Lanakila,
Aina kaulana i ka hanohano,
Haaheo na Pua me na Mamo
A ka I a ka Mahi me ka Palena.
Lahui pookela o ke ao nei
Hookipa oluolu i ka malihini;
Puuwai hamama me ke aloha
Lokomaikai piha he manawalea.
Kui ai e ka lono puni ka honua
No ka hana kaulana a ka Lahui,
Malama maluhia me ka hoopono,
He manao kupaa me ka wiwoole.
Aohe puni wale i ka Lilelile,
I ka mali leo mai a ke Kolea.
Oiai ua kila ia ua paa
Ke aloha aina i ka puuwai.
Ua ewe, ua mole, ua onipaa.
Ua ku i ka piko kapu o Wakea.
Hookahi mea nui a ka manao
A e ake nei a e hookoia;
O ke Alii Aimoku i ke Aupuni
O ka aina hoi a e maluhia,
O ka Hae Kalaunu e welo ana
Haaheo mai ana i kona nani.
Hoike mai ana i ka Lahui
Ua hoi hou e ka Ea o ka Aina.
Lanakila mau loa aku Hawaii,
Me kona Hae nani oi kelakela.
Haina e ka wehi i kaulana
Na Pua i Aloha i ka Aina.
