A Hawaiian Legend by a Hawaiian Na
tive. A Legend of the Goddess Fele,
Her Lover Lohiau and her Sister Hii
akaikapoliopele. Concluded. 1
When Lohiu was dead, Iliiaka caused the
ground to open under her, aud ahe started after
the soul of Lohi vu, jrhich, according to her re
quest, should have immediately went for the
regions JIilu, the Hawaiian Pluto, and who was
a relative of her'. She was confident th it sho
could have obtiined that god's consent to take
back to the outer world the soul of the unfor
tunate young miu who hl suffered for her
misdemeanor. It was her iuteutiou to then re
store Lira to his owu body by her owu diviud
power, as iVlc, then, could uot interfere.
She descended through the rent she had niiJ-j
to the first plane, or first of the lower worlds
(there being five lower worlds, according to
Uawuiiau belief), expecting to riu I the spirit of
Lohiau, but it was uot thero. Sjo malj a rent
in that plaue aud proceeded to the sjcoaJ one,
and still he was uot tu-re, and so ti too third
plane. There she mit a nmibar of goblin,
emissaries of Mila, ou the losoat for str.iy
spirits froia the upper wjrld. She itKjaired of
them for the spirit of Lihiau, but t'aey denied
having sucn it. She thoujat thit his spirit
must have passed very rapilly, au I opjul a
passage to the forth pla'ie, where she m-jt her
grandmother Wakea. ll-.Td she rested a while.
The spirit of the youug iau had not been seeu
bj any one of this plane, and wheu Hii.ika was
somewhat rested from her violent exertions, she
opened a pass i t th fifth aud last plane, the
residence of Mil l, al tuc very heart aud. core
of the lower reji is, II ;r relative wclco.U-'d
her kindly, and expressed his regrets at b.uug
unable to assist hor iu her sj.trcu, a th .s spirit
had not beeu seeu iu .my part of his doaiiaious.
lie pressed her to stay sjaiJ tioia with hi u, as
the wandering spirit would eveutually hivo to
come there. It mast hive mistaken the direction
indicated by HiLiki. aul ttkju the opposite
one. The dilatorinass of th-J spirit wa to bd
regretted, as lapse of time rendered the t isk of
restoration very diOiealt,
As lliiaka was very much iucns? agtinst
her eldest si st--r, sh- 1. 1 ut care t ) return to
the upper world, aa 1 reality acjeptj I t'aj iuvi
tation of Milu. aud stayed there.
In the meantime the ujws of Ljhiau's death,
and manner of it. was -arried to Kauai Ktna-
kahiapooa, generally known as Paoa, was so
profoundly atHictel at the iu muer aud the
reason of his beloved friea I's death, that he bo
came partially insane, a 1 nl i i.i t.i it coali
tion rent his clothes, torj his h iirf aa 1 iu ad a
tow that he would never wear clothes again un
til he stood iu the presence of Polo aul hid
told her, face to face, what he thought of her.
lie expected and hoped that the ins iltel God
dess would order him killed, anl he would thus
meet his death in the suna way as Lhiau, aud
perhaps meet the spirit of that dearly loved
friend. So he went to Hawaii, and, on arriving,
chanted a Hulihit, which equaled Laaiu
finest efforts iu thit liue. Hiving thus suc
ceeded in attracting the attention of the volcauic
deities to himself, he commenced to defy Pele.
But the rage of the firey-eyed goddess was now
exhausted, and she was filled with regret for the
bright young life she had put oat, ana
being in a sober mood, oould realizi how unjust
she had beeu to har faithful youug sister. She
now clearly saw that the kiss given at the briuk
of the crater was not so much one of affection as
to break the tabu. She acknowledged to herself
that she had been entirely iu the wrong, aud
mourned the absence of her favorite sister.
Paoa appeared at the crater while Pele was in
this softer mood, and was astonished to find that
no notice was takeu of his defiance.
The Iliiakas, ou seeing him, had all admired
his manly beauty, and, appealing to their power
ful elder sister, had said : "We see auother
man, who is standing by the stoaa form of the
one you lately destroyed. You mast not order
us to kill him, as we will not d it. We have
performed your bidding iu the c ise of your
unfortunate husbaud, as we felt wj hi I ut right
to interfere, but this man we claim as our's, aud
expect you to do him no hroi.'' Pele know
that it was Paoa, the loved frieud of Lohiau, aud
possibly some tender remeoibrance of tha happy
days she had spent at Kauai, with hjr young
husbaud, helped to make her in re tolerant than
she would have beeu. For uaw she was very
1 ,;.. anh nittal tJ all S rtS of iudifui-
ties from Paoa. Her brothers also all tok his
part, the more so as they also ware iuliguaut
at the treatment the young hus'j ml hal re
ceived ; but those old volca'ric deities wjre wise,
and knew batter thau to interfere wasa it was
the case of trouble between husbaul aal wife.
They received Paoa with opju arms, aul Pele,
having submitted tj all tUJ inliguities his in
genuity coull devise, even l'.ia hil t bjjjme
reconciled to her. So there was peace at the
After a while Pele missed her favorite go
g ranch that one day she consulted with her rela
tives about the nieaas of getting Hiiaka to re
turn. The other deities all agreed that Wa
hineomao would be the only person who could
prevail on the inliguaut young go I less to re
turn from the gloomy abode of Mila. So Wa-
hiueomao and Pauopalae were restored to life,
when, being interrogated by the Hiiakas, they
gave a detailed account of their journey, and of
the difficulties and d ingers encountered. Pele
knew already of all these, and that was one of
the reasons she had beeu s unusually patieut
Great was the sorrow and contrition 3f the
other deities, in that th.y hi I u U more ac
tively taken Hiiaka's p irt, aad toey m turned
the absence of the favorite iu tea tiiia eer.
Wahiueoina was eadowed with supernatural
power and went down th pith opeae 1 by
Hiiaka. She went down through the first,
second and third planes, or wjrl Is, till she
came to the fourth, inhabited by Wakea, aud
here she rested, aud while resting sm a soug
descriptive of the jomuey saa hal taken in the
the company of h'jr divine frieud. She had been
endowed by Pele with th gift of song, kuowing
that would be the surest way to appeal to the
heart of Hiiaka.
She described the diggers f tin way, tha
fatigues eudured. tut? bj.iuli al s.;
which they had soiuiti-.ns pass
up with a loving appeal for the
; 1, ttud W niu I
rit'iru of the
frieud she devotedly loved.
Hiiaka, at the very first notes of the song,
recognized the voice of Wahiueotnao, but so re
fined aud etherealized that it sounded more like
the whisperings of the sea breeze, as it plays
through the leaves of a young cocoanut grove,
thau a human voice, and she thought it was the
spirit of her friend following her into the dread
regious of Milu. As the song progressed aud
incidents of their journey were mentioned, a
wish for a loving remembrance came over the lis
tener, and .she went up to meet what she sup
posed would be the spirit of her friend. To her
joy she found her alive and in the body. She
was, after that, easily persuaded to accompany
her frieud back to the outer world.
' When Hiiaka got back to the crater, she
found Paoa preparing to return to Kuuai, aud
being still not very well disposed towards her
elder sister, she determined to take Paoa back
to Kauai. So Wahineomio aud herself started
for Kauai with Paoa.
About this time Kauuinilohai, uncle to Pele,
came to Hawaii from Kakiki, ou a visit to his
relatives. He came ou a canoe called Leho. It
was a mauritiaua cowry of the most beautiful
red, browu and black tints. It was au expen
sive canoe, and wheu used by the god. would ex
tend out to the usual size of large, roomy canoes,
aud when the god leaped ashore, would contract
to the usual size of cowries, and could theti be
carried by hand.
When Kaueinilohai was half way between
Kaaai aud Hawaii he met the spirit of Lohiau,
who, it seems, had misuuderstood Uiiaka's di
rections and was bound for Kauai. The god
caught the spirit aud took it with him to the
volcano, and restored it to its owu proper form,
which he caused to resume its owu human
nature. The god must have had au inkling at
Kahiki of what his fiery elder niece had been
guilty of, and the visit was perhaps prompted
by the desire to set matters right, as wrong
doing or injustice should utt be permitted,
being contrary their diviue nature.
Uaviug restored the young man, he accom
panied him to the sea shore, aud lent him his
canoe to return to his own island, at the same
time telling him that h would most likely over
take his friend and Hiiaka ut Oahu.
Lohiau ou his restoration, aud before leaving
the crater, sings a song of gratitude to Kaueini
' rUe auuke o." tiie cratnr lsU itiuj to heaven,
llawa'i of Keawa is laid low ;
The sands of Malaiua arc higher than LoUlau,
I am av,.-d by the chief of KaUikiku "
And bidding a last farewell to the place where
he had suffered so much, he joyfully accom
panied the god to the sea shore, and eutere d the
wonderful canoe of the latter. This was a
living shell, and wheu used as a canoo, lay on
the surface "of the water face up. The little
animal inhabiting the shell would then gather
himself up iu one end of the shell, and raising
its mautle almost perpendicular, would sprea d
it to the breeze to servo as a sail.
The back of the &hell being highly polished,
the lightest breeze sufficed to propel it over the
water with great rapidity.
Iu due time Lohiau lauded at Kou, now call
ed Honolulu, aud bid the accommodating shell
return to the Puna c ist, there to await its mas
tier's pleasure. It was sua Iowa when he landed,
aud he vi ent to a sin ill she 1 where two old men
were pealing potatoes that t'aey had jnst taken
out of an nau or underground oven. He matte
friends with those old men, aud heard from them
that there were to bj fain jus doings that even
ing at Peleula's Halelea.
Tho beautiful Hiiak i was stayiug at Peleula's
with her friend, aud alsj a handsome . youug
prince of Kauai, and there was to be a graud
tournament of skill thit ewuin ', which the old
men intended to atteud. Ljhiaii begged of
them to allow hint to accompany theia, aud for
them to conceal him iu t!i 3 f ol Is of their tapas,
as he had not any clothes fit to be seeu at such
a place. The old men good uatmally agreed to
do so, and evening found Lohiau amongst the
crowd of spectators.
Whan it was Hiiak i's turn to throw thj kil u,
she Ch auted a song, she aul Lohiau had coin-
Dosed during their iaruev. aul no one else
knew it. When she had su-ig through a stanza,
Lohiau took up the uxt and sung it throug h.
This started the Goddess, aul her play was uot
g gjod as usual, sin losing her throw. As soon
as the kilu passed out of her hand she went oat
to inquire who had sang her sng, but no one
would tell. She theu went iu aud resumed her
playing. When she had to sing again she pur
posely chose a song that ouly Lihiau kuew, as
6he had recognized his voice. Again he took it
up, aud sung it through. This time she was
sure of his voice, aud had marked the place
where it seeias I to be. and throwing down her
kilu ran to where tin old men wjre and pushing
aside their kapas found Lohiau.
There, was a joyous meeting, a-i I after awhile
they sailed for Kauai where they arrived without
any further incidents.
Hiiaka haviug fouul L hiau restored to tho
living, now thought it was tiun to forgive her
sister, aud h iviug seen Laiiu ail his frieud
safely back to Kauai, retursie I with Wahiueo
niao to the crater of r.il iu ? i, a;re a reconcilia

known at what time her human form was fiu

friends, but she is well known to be a powerful
intercessor before the volcano deities.

showing step by step how the early missionaries,
John Williams in particular, had converted the
hoathen in the South Sea Islands. He stated that
the island of Tahiti was the center and great dis
tribution paint of the missionary work iu the
South seas. John Williams was referred to at great
length as au English missionary possessing great
powers ofconversation aud being a man of education
and eiiorgy, who was one of the first to devote his
life, to missionary work On those, islauds. Ho
translated the Scriptures, built a vessel out

most of them of his own manufacture, to sail from

perishing at the hands of the natives of the Now
Hebrides. The work later, howevor, has not pro
gressed well owing tq various causes, one oi which
is the different modes of worship tauirht b the

that the islanders at the present day were men

they were fifty years ago. S. F. Chronicle.
Larceny at a Storehouse at Laipahaehoe.
On the night of September 26th, money from
Honolulu, per steamer, three bags, containing
$100, $100 and $500, total $1,300, was given to Joe
Chesebro by the freight clerk of the Likelike, The
money was for Lidgate, $SQ0, Nolty $500. The
money was put in a. desk iq tho hack part of the
storehouse, iu the little office no door to the of
fice, no lock to tho desk. After tho stoamer had
gone, about 3:15 a. M. on Thursday, Chesebro aud
his Chinese cook fastened up tho storehouse and
went home, leaviug tho money in the storehouse
Chesebro says he fastened up the storehouse ; the
Chinaman says that he did. Chesebro has never
before this left money in the .storehouse in this
way, but always takes it to his house certified to
by the deputy sheriff, Pualoba and many others
who have helped him repeatedly to carry the bags
over to his house, Chesebro says that 6 o'clock
a. H. ho went to the storehouse and found the
makai door open aud the money gone. Ho also
stated, positively, to Brown aud Pualoba that he
fastened the storehouse up himself. But Haka
moa and a number of natives, who wore getting
ia their boat at the time, say that thoy saw Chese
bro walking up the incline, a.nd saw tha Chinaman
lock the dsjjr and run after Chesebro aud give him
the key. Tho storehouse was an insecure placo to
leave $1,300 cash in, especially wheu the China
man, who assisted him at the time, knew the
whole thing, and Chesebro also knew that he was a
of, aa he had been convicted of larceny from.
dgate before he came to work for Chesebro. The
doors opened in, and a bar was put across, the bar
resting en two irons. hole had beeq cut through
the door a allow the door to swing back flush with
the wall, so that all that was n;edod to get into
the building from the outside was to put a stick
into the hole and pry up the bar. .But as a check
to this, the peg was put in between the door and
tke bar. But it was a small defease, as wo opened
the door repeatedly froai the outside with the iron
drill, which was fouud outside the door, aud it
could have been done easily with, a, stick.. Now it
seems either criminal negligence or criminal inten
tion to leave $1,300 iu cash in suoha place as that,
knowing that this Chinamau could go at any tiiuo
between 3 and 6 o'clock a. m. aud in two minutes
open the door aud make off with the money. Tho
Chinaman is now under arrest. The gulch has
beeu guarded and a secret watch set, If the
Chinese cook stole the money, is doubtless di
vided up among the Chinese, aul it will ha impos
sible to recover much.
Chesebro was arrested on the 3d, together with
the Chinaman, and brought to Hilo for examina
tion. The oase was remanded to the Uth ins tan t,
in hopes of getting further evidence.
The Legend af Hiiaka.
With this issue of the P,.C, Aovbuusea tho story
of Hiiaka written by a Hawaiian native ends. Le
gends of all countries are the predecessors of his
tory. At a time wbon no authentic narrative of
events existed in Hawaii actual events were hand
ed down from generation tQ generation by word of
nioutu suticring oertaiq changos, and with tho
la.pse oi time, beig exageratod .and exalted into
tho dignity of something supernatural. But still,
after passing through all the changes, which must
inevitably bo made iu a record that is kept solely
in the mind and handed down from remote ages
for many generations orally there will be some
thing of truth, a shadow of fact, in tho tradition
ary story, which may aid tho student to form toU
erably correct ideas of what life was iu thoso an
cient days, am.qn.2 the people who originated it.
As a legend of ancient Hawaii "Hiiaka" has a
value which students of ancient Hawaiian history
will most highly appreciate, although as an inter
esting and well written narrative it will be highly
prized by the general reader. From auother point
of view the story Las also au attraction; it was
written by a Hawaiian native, and to soue extent
shows the degree of culture that has given tho
Hawaii of to-daj a high rank anxong the civilized
pojdes o,f the earth.
LOVE AND HATi;.
" Love thy neighbor as tliy-i If." For lio.I
loved the world that lie gavw his nnly lM .,ttn
bou." Hate is (in evil passion; it is always a ran
ker in the soul of him who foiera it. Jealousy and
spite and envy are its raging children. II ilrcd is
the father of crime and woe, the inplrcr of de
mons and tho venom of vipers. When it ilnd'a
placo in tho heart of a nun rrvcii;;e r.uikl. s tle-re
and in brings fo'i th her repulsive harvest f (L'riu
and weeds. When men forget the rude-nt em-d i.f
love aud indulge for aa instant in the Litter feel
ing of detestation against a kindred bcin;r of G id's
creation they pass at once from the narrow but
happy path of true religion in its assent to heaven,
and plunge into the dark, board pieciph' ns route
towards abyssmal depths, where tho refu lienor of
peace and purity and love never dii-pels tl.e miKle
shroud of sin and misery. Hato is a detractor, a
tdauderer, and a knave. Hate delights in its deeds
of eumity and breeds the worms of ealmum and
feeds upon the blood of innocence Where it conirs
with its brood of ever present attendants the fra
grant blossoms of lmpi'iie --! and fraternity droop
and die. Moreover hate is the mark of an niicliri-
tian heart. It finds expression in w. ids nttrr d t i
abuse or revile. It may be seee in tlu il'-nt lirug,
or tho Janus-glance of the In. averted eve. I.et
us learn to know it only to slum it, as we would a
deadly miasm; for hatred between in i is the chief
minion of Satan, and the brand of wicked lnvirts.
If, in thy inmost soul there is the smallest fang of
envv, malice, jealousy or spite, it is net only an
indication of sinfulness but also a proof of infeiior
ity. The greatest, boldest, noblest human natures
have the least to do with hate and shun nil her vi
cious satellites. The best jeoplc combine atVi ction
with humility. They remember that ' God is love"
and that love is merciful. Righteous men have
only the genuine. Ions-enduring, unchangeable af
fection of their crucified Master at the core of their
hearts. Pure and glowing love can never chilled
by selfishness or daunted by danger. It makes he
roes of men and heroines of women while t Ley live,
aud apotheosizes them when they die. Tie- noble
nature, the great and true loyal heart, iu its ex
alted grandeur and most god-like aspect is animat
ed, sustained and sanctified by tho graeniiii spirit
which enablea the really righteous iinlividii.il to
' lovo his neighbor as himself." Affection make
mankind happier, bettor and greater. Hate hecd
degradation and discord and is fratrieid il. I.ovi
gave a Redoemcr to a fallen world, and first opi ned
the auspicious road to Heaven. Hate founded a
hell and plunges those who harbor its eon omvo
spirit into an eternal pandemonium. We are fre.
to choose which of the two diametrically opposed
sentiments wc shall foster, and it is nut difficult to
choose between the glory of Paradise and the un
speakable misery of woe's abode ; nud while' the
benignant sun continues to pursuo his resplendent
course among tho spheres until he sets for tle last
time upon our vision wo will always shun hate and
her kindred demons, but ever foster tho attrihutu
of God in us, tho foundation of fraternity, tho
source of success, tho abounding spring of happi
ness, tho insplrer of genius and tho " font of every
blessing," pure, profound and uenerons love !
