A Letter


O Editor: From when I arrived here in California, I met with a few Hawaiians who I thought were here in California. And perhaps their friends will not fail to be happy to hear about them.

The first is William Kanui [Wiliama Kanui]. I wrote about him in the Hoku Loa some weeks ago. He is one who came back from Boston with Bingham folks in the year 1820. He arrived in California in the year 1849. He sought after money and he found it, and it disappeared once more. He lives as a Christian in California. In the past rainy season, he was very ill, and is a little better now; however, he is weakly because of his age. His hair is very gray, and his skin is fair from just living like a haole. He very much cannot fend for himself, and he is cared for by the Christian friends of the Bethel of Sacramento in San Francisco, in all his needs. Continue reading

We learn that Rev. L. H. Gulick [? Orramel H. Gulick], late missionary at Micronesia, has been called by the Protestant Church at Kau, Hawaii, to preside over that church, vice Rev. W. C. Shipman, deceased. Whether the call will be accepted or not we have not learnt, Mr. Gulick being now in California.

Mary Kealohapauole Timoteo passes away, 1908.



This estimable lady, wife of Rev. E. S. Timoteo, traveling evangelist of the Hawaiian Board, having received a stroke of paralysis, breathed her last on the 6th of September, being then 56 years of age.

Mrs. Timoteo was born at Puakea, Kohala, island of Hawaii, August 9th, 1852. In her girl-hood she attended the government or common school of her native village, then taught in the Hawaiian language.

At 15 years of age, she entered the Waialua Boarding School for Girls, known as Haleiwa, which was taught by Mr. and Mrs. O. H. Gulick, and which had an enrollment of 100 girls, 80 of whom were at one time under their roof.

Returning to her home she was married to Rev. E. S. Timoteo in 1871. With her husband they entered the Training School of the North Pacific, then under the guidance of Rev. B. W. Parker, and later taught by Rev. and Mrs. Dr. C. M. Hyde. In 1880 Mr. Timoteo accepted a call to the pastorate of the Waialua Hawaiian Church [Liliuokalani Protestant Church]; which position he filled, most creditably, for about 18 years. In 1897 Mr. Timoteo was called to the pastorate of the Kaumakapili Church in Honolulu.

In August, 1901, he was called by the Evangelical Association of the Islands, to be a traveling evangelist, and since then his wife has accompanied him upon many of his circuits doing a most helpful work in aid of her husband’s mission of reconciliation and reclamation of disaffected and backsliden Churches and Church members.

Mrs. Timoteo has always been a worthy and true helpmeet for her husband, setting a bright example to the women of every race, and every station. She was mindful of the advice of the Apostle Peter to wives, “Whose adorning let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.”

More on Orramel Gulick, 1874.

[Found under: “Local News”]

Parents will be voyaging—We hear that Rev. Orramel H. Gulick came to get his weak parents [Peter Johnson Gulick and Fanny Hinckley Thomas Gulick] living here in a feeble state to take them to the young Gulick’s [Luther Halsey Gulick] new missionary parish in Japan.It is on the coming 2nd of April that they will all board the steamship to make their journey to Japan by way of San Francisco. To his parents who are leaving this land which they grew accustomed, we hope for blessings from above, to help them on their journey, and to give them safe landing at this foreign land, where their child works for righteousness. So too is our hopes for the endeavors of their child.
