Hawaii 4 South Seas Curio
A torrent of water swept down,
killing all but one boy. A second
army found the great stone which
opened asbetore.This time the occu
pants came out covered by a myriad
of birds whose wings so overlap
ped that not a drop of rain fell on
them though rain came down in
sheets and destroyed the second
army. After this the king sent men
with gifts of hogs, chickens and
rare mats and invited his daughter
Waha and Kauakahialii to visit
him. They came, dressed in mag
nificent red feather cloaks and with
many birds as attendants.
Keliikoa, angry at losing his af
fianced, tried one day while surf
ing in his canoe to run over Kau
akahialii who was on a surf board
and so kill him, but failed. Then
he enlisted the help of Pii, a demi
god who sometimes appeared as a
giint, sometimes a s a pygmy.
sometimes as a creature half lizard
and half man. There is .a rock on
the west slope of Mopua said to
have been placed theie by Pii to
show his strength.
Pii was introduced as a chief
from Keliikoa's district and macie
himself friendly and one night in
vited Kauakahialii to visit him in
a house makai of the sacred grove
wnere he should see something
new and strange. Kauakahialii
went, followed secretly by Kailila-
uokekoa. At the entrance of Pn s
house something heavy fell ou Ka
uakahialii, breaking his shoulder
bones and knocking him down.
Then' a giant with a long spear
sprang from the house and attack
ed him. Kaliilauokekoa threw a
sone which distracted the giant's
attention and Kauakahialii escaped
and hid in the grove. Waha guess
ed the giant to be Pii and his home
was surrounded. Pii rushed out in
the form of a giant twelve feet
high, red hair, eyes as large as a
man's fist, mouth full of tusks and
legs like young koa trees. When
he sterped his step was so heavy
that each oot made a hole large
enough to plant a banana tree in
He killed one man by a kick in
the stomach and two more witu a
soear and rushed to Kauakahialii's
house and pulled out the ridge
pole. Waha shrieked to Pels for
help who sent a flash of lightning
The giant shouted to the owl god
who caught Pele's fiery darts in
its beak. Then men with slings at
tacked the owl and Pii fled and
turned in his flight into a lizard
with the head and chest of a man,
in order to wringle up a cliff.
Then for two years was quiet
until the mysterious floating island
Kanehunamoku appeared off Wai
lua and Kauakahialii visited it and
disappeared forever. Then Kelii
koa, to capture Kaililauokekoa
made war on her father. He en
gaged in personal combat with the
old king and would have killed
him had not Kaililauokekoa thrown
an ikoi at him. The three cords
wound around Keliikoa's head and
one of the stones stunned him
Every man of Keliikoa's baud died
fighting and his body was offered
to the gods in the sacred grove
the flesh being stripped from the
bones which were done up in bun
dles with red feathers.
11ms all Kauai came under one
king and Kaililauokekoa succeed
ed her father as queen of Kaua
Near Holoholoku is a small hill
fuuki, the tormer home ot a rep
tile that was rich in diamonds. A
cave goes through this hill from
north to south called Kaluamoki
la. The south entrance is under
wattr and the reptile could leave
the cave by one entrance to get in-
to the river and by the other to get
on land. The land entrance is rath
er chocked up now. One night as
the reptile slept on the top of the
hill curled around a large diamond
some bold persons stole the dia
mond and the reptile woke too
late and saw the thieves leaving
Wailua on a boat. In its rage it kill
ed all the children of Wailua,
It is said that a witch named
Wailua once lived in the Wailua
River and when Pele's youngest
sister wished to go across a part of
Wailua River on a plank, Wailua
stole the plank and refused to put
it back. Hiiaka then turned Wai
lua into a reptile and put stepping
stones where the plank had been.
Whether this is the same reptile
that lived at Kaluamokila I cannot
On the makai tip of a hill near
the eastern end of the promontory
between the north fork of the Wai
lua river and Opaikaa stream are
the remains of an old heiau, Poha
kuelele. Here a rock marked with
a cross tells the place where the
drum was beaten on tho nights of
Kane and Lono. If a dog passed
at that time it died.
A liltle further up this hill is a
rock that is an ancient shark demi
god. In old times he would stand
here in form of a man and call to
those passing by on their way to
fish in the sea to beware of sharks
or a shark would eat them head
and tail. 'Then he would turn into
a shark, pursue and eat them him

was built by the menehunes who

suggestion it had been to loot the

Governor Pinkhatn, in a letter
to the editor of this paper, con

"I have this day signed the
