THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 26, 1912.
Livelj Village Was En Fete In
Honor Of World's Champion
HANA, October 21.
The Claudine came in at 6 o'clock
P. M. Saturday, and the thousand
or more spectators who had come
miles to see Duke perform at the
W;arf, had to be disappointed as
far as the swimming stunts were
concerned. However, our genial
host Cooper and his corps of assist
ants were not to be outdone. When
Duke and his party came ashore he
was given three rousing Cheers, and
a tiger with a vengance.
The spectators then made up the
road and everybody wended their
way up the hill to the Hana Court
house, where a sumptuous luau was
in waiting for Duke and the guests.
The grounds of the Courthouse
were tastefully decorated with Japan
ese lanterns, and the tables "fairly
groaned with the good things."
Duke Kahanamoku, the champion,
was taken to the seat of honor, and
a bevy of Hana Queens brought
forth their wreaths and the young
man had to relieve himself time
after time from the weights of the
. wreaths of flowers only to be deco
rated again with a fresh supply.
It was all for the lad who made
Hawaii famous and his guests from
the Claudine sat by as onlookers.
He Jreceived lianas Courteous
"Hookupu" in flowers-all that could
be gathered within the radius of
forty miles were brought in and
thrown around his neck.
The Hui Nalu singing club gave
an open air concert after the luau,
and at half nast eight the shrill
whistle of the Claudine notified the
people that the pleasures were to
cease and, after a few remarks from
Billy Rawlins, thanking all Hana
for their generous welcome, return
ed to the .wharf and took passage
for Hilo to again receive Hawaiis
The Claudine could not make it
in time to give the exhibition so it is
the intention of Hanaites to try and
get the Duke back for a week later
