Duke saves lives, 1925.

SENT WAS A MEDAL GIFTED TO KAHANAMOKU.

Because of the brave and fearless rescue carried out by Duke P. Kahanamoku, the famous swimming champion of the world, just recently at Newport, California, in saving the lives of eight people from death, he was sent a gift of a medal to honor him, last Wednesday with a letter from Governor Farrington.

The news of this rescue carried out by Duke P. Kahanamoku arrived in this town, therefore,  some people of Honolulu donated a sum of money to purchase a medal to present to him.

This presentation medal was sent along with a letter from the governor to Lorrin Andrews, living in Los Angeles, as the president of the Hawaiian Club of South California [Kalapu Hawaii ma Kalepooni Hema], and from that club the gift will be given to Mr. Kahanamoku.

FIVE KAHILI FOR THE GOVERNOR

From the Workers Under Mokumaia

Yesterday evening, these kahili were shown in Waikiki.

The kahili will become the property of the territory.

According to Mokumaia, the workers are showing their congratulations to the governor as did the makaainana do for the alii in times past.

On May 2nd, the work on the kahili began, and it was completed on the 17th of May.

F. B. M. Kahea [Frederick Beckley Malulani Kahea] was the one who knew how to construct kahili.

J. K. Mokumaia was the great general of the chiefs.

On the right of the picture is M. Keawe, J. Kapaiki, Mokumaia, Piko Kamahaa, Clara Kaaipua, Minnie Kakalia, Kahea, and Makekehau. The large kahili took 8,000 feathers each.
