The Invasion and the conquest of
the "Garden Island" by Princess Wa
hlkaahuula Kawananakoa was com
plete. She came, she saw, she con
quered. Her sweet smile and gra
cious ways captivated all; and when
she boarded the boat last Tuesday
afternoon, on her return to Honolulu,
she carried with her the love and rev
erence -of her own people as well as
the respect of all else who met her.
Princess Kawananakoa, Regent of
Ka Hale o na Alii o Hawaii, accom
panied by Mr.AVm. A. Hall, president,
Mrs. Mary Ann Kaleikau, vice-presi
dent, Mr. Chas. Lake, High Priest,
Mr. Joseph Kinlkapu, Priest, Mrs.
Annie Wong Leong, treasurer and Dr.
Wong Leong, pnysiclan, and about 25
members of thq mother lodge arrived
by the Kinau Friday, February 4th,
and were met at the landing by Mrs. S.
Keliinol, hostess on behalf of the local
lodge aa.d Hon. Wm. C. Achi at whose
home the Princess was to be guest,
and a host of kamaainas to whom
were assigned malihinis.
Our guests spent the day in resting;
that evening a sumptuous luau was
spread at Judge Achl'a in honor of the
Princess and her retinue. The guests
were Informally greeted by the Gar
den Islanders. Those present at this
social gathering were. Princess Kawa
nanakoa, Judge and Mrs. Achi, Wm.
A. Hall, Mrs. Mary Ann Kaleikau, C.
Lake, Jos. Kinlkapu, Mrs. Annie Wong
Leong, Dr. Wong Leong, Palmer F.
Woods, John H. Wise, A. I. Bright,
Mrs. Nani Alapal, Mrs. De Bolt, Mrs.
Laura Nakakuikalanl, Mrs. Nawahl,
Mrs. Young, Mr. and Mrs. Keliinol, Mr.

Hon. John A. Kealoha, Hon. and Mrs
A. Rice, Hon and Mrs. W. Henry
Rice,, Mr. and Mrs. Philip Rice, Miss
Lottie Jordan, Mrs. and Miss Coney
and many others. A very enjoyable
time was had by all who were pres-
ent. The guests sang a number of
songs which recalled old Hawaii.
The Kaahumanu Society of Waimea,
Mrs. J. D. Cook president, entertained
the Princess, who is an honorary
member of that organization, and her
party on Saturday. Sixteen, auto
mobiles conveyed the guests and their
kamaainas to Mana and then back to
Waimea. After a short rest at Mrs.
Cook's, the Princess proceeded to the
social lanal, where an iuf :rmal recep
tion waa held and the luau was served
Waimea did herself proud that day.
It was late in the afternoon when the
return was made to Lihue and Kapaa.
At the Armory that evening, a song
fest of Hawaiian melodies was held.
The sweet songs of long ago recalled
memories dear to many Hawaiian
hearts, while recent compositions,
some of which were sung for the
first time In public, added materially
to the .success of the evening's, pro
ram. Promptly at 8,00 the Princess
was announced and as she walked in,
Kumuahaokalani" a song composed
especially for her, was sung, the audi
Solo numbers were rendered by Mrs,
Alapal and Mrs. Henry Sheldon, so
pranos, Mrs. Palenapa, alto; duets by
Mrs. Kaleikau and Auld; trios by
Messrs Meheula, Ekekela and Kaimi
Hano, and quartettes by Mesdames
Alapal, Bayne, Kaleikau and Auld
Their excellent work merited the well
deserved applause each number re
ceived. Needless to say, the Hawal
iun dance gracefully Interpreted
by Miss Hiku Poepoe, brought down
the house. The snappy new compo
sition "Kapiolnl" received prolonged
applause and compelled leader Meheu
la to repeat It. Dancing followed the
musical program and it was at a late
hour when every one went home
happy though tired.
On Sunday afternoon, Feb. 5th, at
Kapaa Hall, the branch Hale was or
ganlzed with the following officers.
Mrs. S. Keliinol. pres., Wm. Werner,
1st vice-pres.; Mrs. Lucy Wright, 2nd

Messrs. J. A. Kealoha Meheula and
W. C. Achi Jr. board of directors.
Mrs. Keliinol waa transferred from
the Mother Lodge In Honolulu to the
local Hale and a class of 128 tender
feet trod the pebbly paths on their
way to the Hale o na Alii o Hawaii.
Thus this lusty infant commences
its existance with a membership of
129. Soon after the initiation of the
members the officers of the new Hale
were installed by the following In
stalling officers. Princess Kawana
nakoa, Iku Lanl Iloano; Mrs. Maka
kuilanl, Iku Naha; Wm. A. Hall. Iku
Hal; Mrs. Kaleikau, Iku Lr.n!; S.

Lake, Iku Ahi; Jos. Kiniknpu, Iku
Ponl; Palmer Woods, Iku Moe Kul
kawa; A. I. Bright, Iku Alio Kuikawa;
and Mrs. Bayne, Iku Laau Kuikawa.
It was late when the members of the
new Hale escorted their guests to the
dining room where every one partook
of the various good things to eat pre
pared by the willing folks of Kapaa
under the direction of John Opio' and
Monday was Hanalei's day. Mr.
and Mrs. Werner entertained the Prin
cess and the visiting officers. Mrs.
Werner is one oj tho Namo Allis of
the Mother Hale. Our guests were
fortunate in that the temporary bridge
over the break in the road at Wainlha
was completed, so that the trip to
Haena was made in comfort. An
other luau was spread for them in the
old historic church at Hanalei. All
the good things to eat from land and
sea were assembled and relished by
all. It was a complete Hawaiian luau.
The reception given by the Hale o
na Alii o Hawaii to their Regent, the
Princess, Monday night at the Armory
was a most successful social event.
It was a fitting culmination of the
efforts of a strenuous week. The
Princess wore a beautiful black silk
dress, and the' Insignia of her rank,
Iku Lanl Hoano, a handsome jewel
presented to her on the ogcaston of
her last birthday by the Mother Hale.
Mr. A. G. Kaulukou, on behalf of
'he local Hale, presented the Princess
with a beautiful, hand-made, highly
polished calabash of koa wood, prop
Dancing, interspersed, with musical
numbers whiled away the evening.
The Princess smilingly acquiesced to
the inslstant pleadings of some of the,
lecal boys for a hula dance number,
and requested one of her girls to
cblige them. Miss Poepoe gracefully
reEponded and captivated the audience.
Before coming to the reception the
Princess and some of her party were
entertained at dinner by the Honv and
Mrs. C. A. Rice. " .
On Tuesday, the Princess was the
guest of the Kaahumanu Society of
Lihue, Mrs. Kahele president. At
the Princess' table were seated Father
and Mrs. Rice, Mr. and Mrs. W. H.
Hire, Senator and Mrs. C. A. Rice,
Mr. and- Mrs. Philip Rice, Miss Edith
Rice, Mr. and Mrs. Swan, Mr. and Mrs.
Forster, Mr. and Mrs. Wood, the Miss
es Wilcox, Mr. and Mrs. Stewart and
From the luau the Princess pro
ceeded to the home of Hon. Wm. Hyde
Rice for rest before boarding the
Like all fairy tales, there comes an
end. So at 4.30 p. m. lust Tuesday
she bade goodby to her Kapiolani
Namo Allis and as the familiar strains
of Aloha oe floated across the waters,
she waved them a fond farewell. Del
egations frm Waimea, Koloa, Lihue,
Kapaa and Hanalei came to Nawiliwili
to bid aloha to the Princess.
The various events have been like
fairy tales to the younger generation
of the Hawaiians, but many eyes
among the older folks were dimmed
at the various receptions because of
memories of the splendor of Hawaii's
former Kings and Queens. ,
And thus the Princess and her peo
ple returned to Honolulu. Come a
gain Princess! Come again our other
malihinis. We love you all.
The Princess wishes to express her
heartfelt appreciation of the reception
given her by the Garden Islanders.
Mrs. Keliinol, hostess on behalf of
the local Hale wishes also to thank
each and every one who contributed
to the success of entertaining the
Princess and her party, and especially

their home and the luau Friday night,
