[There is one oki of this mele found in the 5/28/1868 issue of Au Okoa by Kekuanaoa, one in the 6/18/1868 issue without an attribution, one in the 7/23/1868 issue by Kamehameha III; three in the 7/30/1868 issue, one by Kalama, one by Kaomi, and the other by Liliha. There are also many issues that are missing for this newspaper, and who knows what treasures might be found once copies of those issues are found!]

A name song for the boys of the Royal Hawaiian Band, 1893.

HE INOA NO NA KEIKI O KA BANA LAHUI.

Mele inoa for Queen Kapiolani, 1881.

A Name Song.

For Queen Kapiolani Napelakapu; from Holoholoku comes this mele for the wife of Aikanaka, the King of Kauai; Hinaaikamala [Hinaaikamalama] was the wife of Aikanaka; which was recorded by S. Hinau. A small portion was copied here below.

Nani kuu hilahila e noho nei-e
Hele wale ka manene a ka lima-e
A ka laulau hoi mai-e
Hohoi maua me kuu nele-e
Me ka hilahila pau pu no-e
Ahi loloko wewela i ka makemake-e
I ka hu-honua a ka waimaka-e
O kuu maka kai ike i ka eha-e
Halanalana no e hanini-e
Kahanu kolopaa oia hanu-e
Ka lapalapa huila o ke kanaka-e
Ka hinu holo ia a ke aloha-e
Nana i kuikui nawali au-e
Nakunaku ka pua hau i ka wai e-e
Napanapa ka lau ke ike ku-e
He ukiuki keia i ka lono-e
Lono wau ua pa kanaka oe-e.

[This can also be seen in the mele “Nani Kuu Maka e Au Wale Nei-e,” found on pages 264–267, of Na Mele Aimoku, Na Mele Kupuna, a me Na Mele Ponoi o ka Moi Kalakaua I. It is credited to Niau. There is also an appended note that the top of this mele has been lost.

It is also unfortunate that this newspaper, Ka Elele Poakolu, is still not available online in any form.]

King Kalakaua leaves for America, 1874.

The Alii, the King, boarded the battleship Benecia at 10 oʻclock and 30 minutes on the morning of this past Tuesday [11/17/1874] to go to the United States of America. When he reached the wharf, seaside of Halemahoe, it was an awesome sight; the seeing off by his subjects of the King on his travels to foreign lands. The people crowded together to shake his hand, give gifts, kiss his hand, and chant his name songs, but the King did not dawdle. When the skiff came by for him, accompanied by the Prince Regent [Kahu Aupuni] and the attendants, the sailors of the battleships Tenedos, Scout, and Benecia climbed the yard, and as the skiff moved on, the battery of Ainahou and the two British battleships each gave a 21 gun salute,— Continue reading
