THE AMERICAN FLAG.
On this Saturday morning, an American Flag was seen above Puowaina fluttering proudly, and the pole upon which it was placed was that piece of metal of the Government Surveyors.
When people saw this astonishing thing, there were many questions, but no answers.
When the day progressed to 9 o’clock or more, it was seen now that the American Flag wasn’t there, and half an hour later, Samuela K. Kaloa arrived with that flag and said that this was the Flag that was up at Puowaina, and it was I who went and took it down.
