THE PA-U RIDERS.

Thirty-four pa-u riders came cantering along in four sections of color: yellow, red, orange and pink, led by Judge Andrade and Mrs. Puahi. The Kaonohiokala Club sent fifteen horse women and the Wakinekona Club eighteen equestiennes. A brave sight they made with their long pa-us fluttering in the breeze and their garlands showing bright in the sunshine.

Several of the older riders were in the parade, ladies who wore the pa-u in the pleasure-loving days of the monarchy. Very dignified were these elderly dames and very well they rode. The younger women were out for fun and they certainly had it, galloping wherever there was room to and urging their steeds on with merry shouts. The riders included the following from the Kaonohiokala Club: Mrs. Puahi, Mrs. Kaumaka, Mrs. Dias, Mrs. Kaluapapakini, Mrs. Kailianu, Mrs. Nakapaahu, Mrs. Irene Silva, Mrs. Kauwa, Mrs. Haalou, Miss Lucy Woodward, Mrs. M. Hoonani, Mrs. Maluae, Mrs. Anehilo Keama, Mrs. Stahle, Mrs. Johnson; and the following members of the Wakinekona Club: Mrs. Horn, Mrs. Kapio, Mrs. Liau, Mrs. Aiwohi, Mrs. Jackson, Mrs. Pumehia, Mrs. Mahi, Mrs. Isaac, Mrs. Fairman, Mrs. Kekuewa, Mrs. Kapulani, Mrs. Tuck Williams, Miss Kekua, Miss M. Hao, Mrs. Emakai, Miss Marie Hiram, Miss Julia Lui, Miss Mary Wood. Continue reading

Early movies of Hawaii, 1913.

THE PARADE ON WASHINGTON’S [BIRTH]DAY WILL BE FILMED

Because there is a desire to have a movie of the parade on this upcoming birthday of Washington, a man famous for filming movies arrived aboard the Wilhelmina last week, and he is spending some days of this month filming the volcano, the sugar plantation, the harbors, and famous sights to delight the millions of people of the world.

If this haole has spare time, he will spend some time going shark fishing, and filming it.

He will go to the pineapple plantations, and film the growth of the pineapple, the activities of the laborers, as well as the canning.

During the parade on Washington’s birthday, he will be the one rolling his film; and it is believed that there will come a time when the world will see scenes of the parade in Hawaii because of this haole.

[Anyone know who this is, and where these reels might be today?]
