TAULE LAND SELDOM VISITED
Resume oi the Btttte of "Ponl-
wal" fought Between. Kamcha-
melm and Kalanikupule In 1700.
As advertised, the members of the
Alpine Cub of Wailuku, which bears
tho unrivalled distinction of being thp
only one ol tho kind in the Territory,
met at the residence of Dr. Armitnge,
President, last Sunday morning, July
24, loi1 a day's outing among tho oft
visited canyons of lao Valley, which
is noterl in song as the loveliest spot
in this rare gem ol the Pacific seas.
Of the eighteen actlvemembers of
the club, fifty per cent werc present,
viz: Dr. E. Armitago, Judge W. A.
McKay, Attorneys D. H Case, W. P.
Crockett, J. N. K. Keola, W. E.
Salfery, and H. M. Coke, and con
tractor P. H. Jordan; the others sent
excuses which were considered trivial
by those present and will be dealt
with according to usages prevailing
in prehistoric ages. Any way those
who plucked up enough conrago to
accompany the president on this
most enchanliug journey left Wailu
ku at 8:30 o'clock. Owing to the
rugged condition of the road to the
third crossing, no world'b'feaking re
cord was established.
Tho first crossing was reached in
really good time. Many of tho ath
lcticly Inclined members crossed tho
stream on tho immense pipes be
longing to the Wailuku Sugar Co.,
while others forded the stream look
ing very much liko tho vanguard of
Gen. Kuroki's array fording the Ya
lu. Mrs. Manukeokeo's mountain
esortwas reached in safety. Tho
provisions word left hero in charge of
theTand lady, for the legal lights a
moug tho party decided that accord
tag to international, usages adopt
ed at the Hague Conference m
1889, such articles of food could nev
er bo considered by any civilized na
tions save tho Russians as. contra
bands of war.
After a rest of over half an hour.
tho membors in a body paid a visit to
the famous "Pani-wai-o-lao" or the
"DamofTao" immortalized in h'isto
ry as the place where was fought
the great bbttlo in 1790 between
Kalanikupule, son of Kahekili, King
of Maui, and Kamehameha tho
This spot is by tho stream oppo
site tho homo of Mrs. Mnuukeokeo,
Altho it. was said that at this battle
of the "Pani-wal" tho bodies of tho
slain and vanquished home defendors
were so numerous that thoy choked
ud the stream, and its pure sweet
waters were made locardino with the
blood of tho bravo defenders who
werc unmercilessly slaughtered
tho army of Kamehameha, there be
ing no such thing as surrender
thoso barbaric days; no quarters gi
Ivameharaeha was aided in this
battle by the use of modern fire arms
dexterously applied by Young and
Davis, two foreign recruits in tho
Hawaii army, and without the uso
of which Kamehameha might havi
fared the sad fate of Kalaniopuu
King of Hawaii, whoso baud of 1000
bravo Alapas, the flower of tho Ha
waii army,- were slaughtered, ia
hand to hand fight at Knltanlluo,
near WaltuKU, In 177(5, and whoso
bones Ho dormant among tho sand
hills even today as silent, evidences
of tho terrible slaughter mulcted by
tho victorious Maul army under King
Kahekili, tho Napoleon of Maui.
Maui possessed ah army lu those
days which any general might be
proud to lead into battle; the men
were tall, immense, stately, agile, and
fearless, and wcrp experts in thtruso
of slings and spears ((he laumekh)
About 3:30 o'clock the happy batld
f climbf-8 left the historic spot of tho
'Pani-wai" anu wpnded their wi'y to
wards Knalaholo, the trolelaud. Both
the second and third cfossliiTJ were
irded with safety, tho more agile
members of the club jrmptag trom
rocktovoi.k un'il the other side cf
stream was readied, While the less
nervy members wr.ded through with
their top boots, declining even to ac
cept help from Mr. H. M. Coke who
Stood with one foot oh one rock and the
other on another like the Colossus at
Rhodes, and with outstretched hands
begged of them to bo permitted to lift
them boriily across the stream.
After leaving the third crossing,
tho members, climbed uptho narro
trail leading to the table land in single
file. The first rest was made near
the top, at a place almost opposite
Kukaemokuor tho Needles. Hare the
members sat down and with wonder
ing eyes looked with deep admiration
at tho majestic grandeur of this lofty
cone, having tho appearance of a
pyramid carved out by nature.
It was a most imposing sight to be.
hold and every one of tho members,
great admires of nature and its won
derful creations, were filled with awe
and deep emotion as they rivotted
their eyes on this grand spectacle,
otherwise termed as the noble senti
nel to lao canyons. One of the, mem
bers told of tho story of Luahinepee,a
beautiful maiden who in a fit of jealous
despondency climbed to the top of the
needlo and hurled herself headlong to
the valley below, thus bringing an end
to her brief lovely existence.
After a rest of nearly an hour, the
members proceeded on their journey
for tho table laud, except Judge W
A. McKay, who remained behind
scanning with bis eyes the dizzy
heights from where tho maiden made
her fatal leap to externity, and
the last words heard on his hps
wero tho following lines from Byron
"Her face so fair
Stirred with hor dream, as rose
leaves with the air."
It was about noon when tho com

For tho past twelve months a revl-

ated has been agitated, and with the
.,,. tho Wailukll imDr0Ve
ment Association tho matter of re
pairing and utilzing the cemetery
was again brought to the front, and
tt cometary committee was appoint
ed, with Judge McKay as chair
McKry immediately put
himself in communication with the
surviving members of the original pe
titioners and charter members, with
the result that tho charter, granted
June 2'-, 187G, and signed by William
L. Moehonua, Minis. lor of the Interior
for Kalaukua Rex, and tho deed to
one and one hnlf acres of ground at
the head of Vineyard street, Wailu
ku, signed by H. A. P. Carter, Pres
ident and P. C. Jones, Treasurer, of
the WaiHiku Sugar Co., for a consid
eration of $150.00, wero found.
Efforts were made in every direc
tion to find tho Constitution and By
Laws and tho secretary's minutes,
but no trace of them could bo had.
Last Tuesday, however, one of Wai-
lu'.:u 3 lejral lights was rummaging
through aoaft old papers and acci
dently unearthed tho much sought for
by-laws, and minutes.
These records were turned
Prior to the finding of these records
Judge McKay had sent to Trustee
Harold Giles of Honolulu a written
petition asking Mr. Giles, who with
two others, one on Maui and the
other oil Hie coast', are the three
surviving officials, to bign tto petition
praying Judgo Kopoikai to grant t
hearing and call a meeting, thus (lc
galizing any after transactions.
Upon investigation of tho By-Laws
however, JudgB McKay found that
"persons own'ug not loss than one
burial lot of sixteen feot square are
members of the Association," which
if the persons holding the deeds can
be found, and these represent a ma
jority of the stock issued, a meeting
can bo held without going to court,
and it is for this reason that Judge
McKay, as chairman of the come
tery committee, advertises that per
sons holding theso deeds communi
cato with him.
The original signers to tho peti
tion for a charter were'tho Rev. W,
P. Alexander. Edward Bailey and
Georgo W. Wilfong. Theso three,
together with Goodaio Armstrong,

how many subsequent deeds have

Tho homo of Mrs. Manukeokco was
