Kalalulna 'and Aloha AIna Societies
Were Merged Into Independent
Party at a Meeting of Delegates

Institute,, Nuuanu Avenue; This
Forenoon Words of Kalauokalani
The principal men of the Independent
Home l.itle party, Including tho dels
gates who were chosen to represent
the various precincts of this island at
the convention held in the drill shed
previous to tht election of November
last, met In the headquarters of tho
Young Ilawallans' Institute this morn
ing for the purposo of hearing various
reports of the officers of the society on
the progress of the work of the party
and what is Intended shall be done In
the near future for the welfare of the
party. There wcro perhaps seventy
flvo present, among tho number bcln?
several nativo ladles Interested In tho
work of tho party. D. Kalauokalani,
Senator-elect from the Fourth Sen -
torlal District, was In the chair. Upo.i for the purpose of working against an
calllng the convention to order, he I ncxatlnn.
Introduced Rev. J. I.elelwl who offcrolj "That was the first time tho two so
a very beautiful prayer, asking tht . cIctlesr-Aloha AIna and Kalalna had
messing or uoo on tne worK or tne con
vention. Mr. Kalauokalani opened the busi
ness of the morning with a few remarks
dealing with the purposes of tho moot
ing, as follows:
"Delegates from Hawaii to Kaunl
who havo gathered in this hall today,
aloha to you all. Dy the grace of God,
we have been permitted to gather again
today. We are here to consider mat
ters that are to work for' the wclfaio
of the nation now nnd In the futuic.
You are American citizen and you
havo been called to act as American
citizens. We have now entered Into a
new era and" purmpther, country Ik
America. We must stand firm for wh it
we believe Is right as we have done
during the past seven years. We must
now move forward In order that our
welfare shall be assured. We must be
ready for what things are to be done In
the future. Stand Arm! Is the watch
word. It Is only by standing firmly
for our rights that we may expect tr
"The principal work before you to
day Is the merging of the two societies
known as the Aloha Aina and Kalal-
alna societies Into tho Independent
Homo Rule party and to mako of this
a permanent organization. This work
having been accomplished, you will
proceed to tho election of the officers 3f
the party. This is a matter that you
should consider .with great care. Mr.
Kaulla and myself have dono the best
we have known how as presidents of
the two societies which we have Just
mentioned. I think you have seen tho
fruits of our work. We do not wish
to brng about .what wo, hnye done but
I think you will agreo that what has
been dono has had a telling effect. W
have mapped out the course of the par
ty ami wo have como out of It all, suc
cessful. This, ol'rourse, has been by
means of your much needed help.
"This work I speak of has resulted
in tho sending forth to Washington of
a nativo Hawalan aa our representative
in Congress. Is that not u thing to bo
proud of? It has also resulted In the
sending forth with that delegate of a
young Hawaiian as secretary. These
I say are things wo nhould be proud of.
Thero are two educated Hawaiians in
Washington who are working In ths
Interests of Hawaii nel. Ono of them Is
now assisting In the framing of laws
for our great country America. These
matters 1 think will be ever preset' t
with you and you will bo able to point
with pride at the work that has been
done. I might mention, In passing,
that you have two-thirds of both tho
houses of the Legislature In your
"In choosing your new officers, 1
shall not ask you to vote for Mr. Kau
lla or myself again. Everything Is In
your hands and you must choose, offi
cers who will do tho best for the party
and for the people."
J. K, Nakookoo was chosen secretary
pro tern and then tho chair announcing
the following committee on credential,
a short recess was taken: Messrs.
Mahoo, Kallimal.Uahlnul.Olll nnd Wnl-
lehuas Tho mcotlng being aguln called to
order, Mr. Mahoo announced forty
thrco delegates present at the meeting.
Theso wero divided up in tho following
proportions as to tho various Islands:
Hawaii, 4; Maul, G; Mnlokal, 2; Oahit,
27, and Kauai, i, Tho letters showing
tho proper election of these, had been
examined and found to bo In proper
form. The report was adopted.
Tho chair announced Jas. K. Kaulli,
president of the Aloha AIna Society
who presented the report of himself
and Mr. Kalauokalani on the history
of the work-of the Aloha AIna nnd Kn
lalalna societies from tho time they
wero first made presidents of tho so
cieties in 1S97 until the present time.
Ho spoke, In part, as follows:
There was a very great work on
our shoulders when wo first bocame
presidents of the Aloha Alnn.and Ku'
lalalna societies., Tho former presi
dents had died and tho societies were
going to pieces throuch lack of leader
ship. That wis the time when we wero
In the midst of annexation. Of courso.
we were not In favor of It nnd we
worked against annexation. In No
vemberof 187. we went to Washington
1 as representatives of the two societies
ever come together for Joint work. Wj
have been standing together ever since
and we have now com to the end of
the work we set out to do, only to
maek a fresh start. We have had haril
work and have seen all manner of trou
bles but we have come out on top 'at
last through this union of the Aloha
AIna and Kalalna societies.
The report of Mr. Kaulla was unani
David Kuplbca, delegate from Oahu,
asked that the meeting adjourn inrt
that there be a postponement of further
consideration of the questions decided
on for 3 weeks. He stated that neatly
.ajl the (Ulegates prtssnt went, from. Unl
Kajaina society and that the Aloha
AIna Society had hardly a voice. This
was not right. There should be a good
representation of each society. Tho
meeting was for going ahead with the
work of the meeting so that Mr. Kup..
hea's objection fell to the ground.
This brought tho meeting to the con
sideration of the question of union
Jss. K. Kaulla presented the following
resolution of union which was unani
Whereas, It Is n well known fact that.
at the present time, there are but threo
political parties In the Tcrrljory of
Hawaii and that one of these is the
Independent Homo Rule party which
was established by the Aloha AIna and
Kalalna societies, therefore
He It resolved. That the societies
known ns the Aloha AIna and Kalalna
societies are hereby merged into one
party to be known hereafter ug the In
dependent Home Rule party and
Ho It further resolved. That the so
cieties known as the Aloha AIna and
Kaualna societies nro hereby dono
away with forever.
This resolution having been read,
Mr. Kalauokalani arose and thanked
the delegates for their unanimous
adoption of the report. It was cer
tainly a glad day when the two great
Hawaiian political organizations found
themselves working hand In hand and
shoulder to shoulder "I hookahl puu
wal, hookahl umauma, hookahl poohl
wi." Secretary Nakookoo here read tho
constitution and by-laws of the Inde
pendent Home Rule party to the dele
gates. It was voted that the constitu
tion be considered section by section.
Four sections of tho constitution
wero read nnd adopted by the meeting
and then adjournment was taken until
2:30 p. m.
