NO SWEET EMALIE.

KA U’I MAALO I KE KUPULAU.

Aloha Niumalu i ka Uluwehi
Kamaile laulii ku pohai
E hai mai ana ia’u i ka lohe
A ka Poano no ka Mikahala

Hiki aku i ke awa Nawiliwili
Kulu pakahi iho ku’u Waimaka
Aloha no oe e Mailekini
Olali a o na pali Nihoniho

E hoi no au a manao mai
Aia i Huleia ku’u lei nani
Poina aku au i ku’u Rose
Me ka manu inu wai pua o Lehua

No Lehua ka makani anu nei kino
Kahuli leo hone o ka Hanehane
Aneane neau a e lalau
A e noho Kapena no ka Mikahala

Ilaila ku’u upu ku’u lia ana
A he nane huna ia na kamanao
Hainaia mai ana ku’u nane
No ka U-i i maalo i ke Kupulau.

The Steamship Australia, 1900.

A DAY OF CELEBRATION FOR THE STEAMSHIP AUSTRALIA IN HONOLULU.

The picture above illustrates the scene that cannot be forgotten by the crowd of thousands of Honolulu nei, as it goes on its ocean path to the Golden Gate of San Francisco. This is a regular festivity here in Honolulu. The men and women are decorated with lei of this and that variety, and it is glorious to see, the beauty of everyone. It is so very beautiful.

[The Australia was one of the many ships that took Hawaiians to and from this Archipelago. One of her famous passengers was Sweet Emalia, Emalia Kaihumua, the composer of “He Aloha Moku o Keawe,” which is a song composed in far away San Francisco during a time of great turbulence, where the writer yearns for her homeland.

Don’t forget to tune in tonight to the 94th annual Kamehameha Schools’ Song Contest! Its theme this year is Songs of World Travel!!]

Aloha Hawaii moku o Keawe
Aina a ka nani me ka maluhia,
Hookuku au me Kaleponi
Hawaii ka oi o na ailana,
Na ka Auseturia i kono mai ia’u
E naue i ka aina malihini,
Aina kamahao i ka’u ike
Ua uhi paa puia e ka noe,
Ike i ka hau hoopuakea ili
Hoopumehana i ke ahi kapuahi,
Ka iniki a ke anu me he ipo la
E koi mai ana ia’u e hoi,
Ilaila huli hope kuu manao
He kaukani mile ko’u mamao,
Hu mai ke aloha no ka aina
No ka poi uouo kaohi puu,
Haina ia mai ana ka puana
Ke Aloha Aina kuu lei ia.

Composed by Iosephine Emalia L. Pueamakakaualii Kamakaluhi, at the California winter exhibition in the skin-whitening snow, published in Ka Leo o ka Lahui, the patriotic newspaper of the time.

Sweet Emalia is out in Honolulu! 1908.

LUNATICS, VAGS AND MUTINEERS IN COURT

Police Court Judge Frank Andrade this morning felt that he sat on the edge of an active volcano, for through the window over his starboard shoulder, up from the pit at the bottom of which in a cell grovelled Sweet Emalia, came discordant beseechments for a renovation of the universe and the making of a new world.

It was difficult to size up the merits between a man with an attacking hoe and a gentleman with a damaged cow when such sounds soared benchward.

“Has not the doctor been sent for to examine Sweet Emalia?” inquired His Honor.

Chief of Detectives Kalakiela stated that he had been summoned.

Then Emalia took up singing, having torn her garments to shreds, and this was less upsetting that her howling and cursing.

Emalia was taken to the station about breakfast time today from the parish of Kalihi. Neighbors rang in, calling loudly for Thwing or Parkhurst, declaring that a large lady who had forgotten her wardrobe was roaming the streets. The patrol wagon hurried out and Emalia was found without covering, making morning calls on the neighbors.

When she sighted the hurry-up she hastened to her home and donned a garment in which she was taken to the police station. There having the covering of a cell, she found the clothing superfluous and straightway made fricasee of them. She is alleged to be insane.

A lolo or stupid boy received the court’s attention. He was charged with vagrancy, sleeping in sawdust in the back parlor of a planing mill. He was open-mouthed and stare-eyed and committed to be examined with Sweet Emalia by Dr. Moore, Dr. Emerson taking a vacation.

…..

[After coming across this article from 1908 showing Sweet Emalia out in Honolulu, I am now thinking that the Emily Kaihumua sent to Kalawao in 1906 and being examined there in 1909 by Dr. Goodhue might not be the same person…

Hopefully one day soon, all the Hawaiian-Language Newspapers will be rescanned clearly so that if there is ever enough money to do once again an OCR project, or a hand transcription project, it can be done accurately so that hopefully we can find each and every available article that could clarify what became of Emalia, or any other person or event in Hawaiian history for that matter!!]

Emalia Kaihumua abused, 1906.

CAUGHT LEPER SUSPECT.

Emalia Kaihumua was attacked by her husband yesterday, the woman’s jaw being broken by a blow from a demijohn. She was taken to the police station for treatment and an investigation disclosed the fact that she was in all likelihood a leper, so she was ordered to the detention station at Kalihi.

CAUGHT LEPER SUSPECT.

Tragic follow up to Emalia Kaihumua, 1906.

BEAT HIS WIFE AND THE WIFE WAS AFFLICTED BY THE SEPARATING DISEASE.

This past Sunday, January 28th, the husband of Emalia Kaihumua beat her and her jaw was dislocated, because she was struck with a wine bottle. That woman was taken to Kuapapanui, and tended to.

Later, Dr. McDonald of the Board of Health came and examined the injury, and after his examination of some of the flesh of that woman, he gave orders to have the injured woman to the Quarantine Station in Kalihi.

From this it is understood that Emalia is suspected of having leprosy, and that is possibly why she was taken to the quarantine area of the sick.
