That Hawaiian Hotel, the building and grounds, which costed the government $116,000 which was squandered by a number of Ministers of King Kamehameha V. It stands in front of our eyes this day, a reminder of wasted money of the lahui. Its lease for the year is not enough to cover the interest of 30,000, and the government is losing 7,500 every year, and so forth everyday that the government remains the owner of the hotel which Chief Lunalilo has called, “the 116,000 devil.”
By this, notice is given to all who sees this, as per what is designated in Section 614 of the Assembled Laws of Hawaii, 1915; I, the one named below, the owner of the fishery, known as the sea of “KEAUAU,” from the former property of the Alii William Charles Lunalilo, that being the sea in the Ili aina of Kapahulu, select and set aside for myself, an only for my own use, the fish called, “amaama,” from within those seas. All who take without my permission this fish that I make tabu, will be prosecuted.

The one named Chief William Charles Lunalilo was the sixth of the kings, chosen by Hawaii nei on the 8th of January, in the year 1873, and he reigned as king over the nation of Hawaii nei. And after one year and twenty-five days, he died on the 3rd of February, in the year 1874, at Iolani Palace, mauka of King Street. The one named Chief William Charles Lunalilo, was the one who was very generous, willing the trustees of his estate to give from his property in the crown lands for Lunalilo Home as a home for his own Hawaiian people to live in peace for all times at Makiki; Captain Harry Swinton [Hale Pinao] was appointed superintendent of Lunalilo Home, a man who was a well known to the multitudes, and after him there were five haole, and with the last, Lunalilo Home was razed, and the land lay barren.

Yesterday was the birthday of the Chiefess Mrs. Bernice Pauahi Bishop. Amongst the alii who have passed on, the alii Pauahi is one who will always live in the memories of her lahui. She accumulated her great wealth, and before her passing, she left most of it for the establishment of the School for the descendants of her people. Her fervent desire was for her lahui to be educated in English and knowledge necessary to move them forward. Today there are hundreds who have been blessed by the knowledge gained from the schools. She has gone, but has left an unforgettable memorial which stands on her lands.
The chief Lunalilo has blessed the oldsters of his land; Queen Kapiolani, the women who are increasing her people, and Pauahi educates those offspring. Those are the chiefs who left unforgettable monuments, and their names will forever more echo upon the beloved walls of Hawaii nei.
