Then English-language school at Waiahole, Oahu will be opening on Monday, the 17th of this month, under the leadership of their new teacher, Mr. G. Carson Kenyon, the previous editor of the newspaper, Daily Bulletin, of this town. He will meet with Manuela, the agent of the school, along with the parents of the students, at the schoolhouse at Waiahole, on Wednesday, the 19th, at 10 o’clock in the morning.

Leprosy patients on the run, 1893.

The Heroes of Ewa.

We have heard that the two leprosy patients, Manuela and Aikolani are in the uplands of Waiawa valley in Ewa, and that they are stocked with guns and bullets. The have enough fish and poi, and they have no difficulties with their living situation. They can just get on horses in the fields with their guns and go down to the sea. They have nothing to worry about. Manuel’s wife and child died long ago. We also hear that Kaleiwahea was seen in Halawa valley. How sad for these people living in the forests like wild animals.
