Following. a few, brief remarks, by
Mayor John C . Lane, the speaker of
the dy, Rev. William Kamau, pastor
of th Macana Protestant church at
Pearl City, was introduced by Rev.
Akalk) Akana. - -
Rev. Mr. Kamiu, speaking in Hawai
ian, compared Knmehatneha the Great
to George WTashIngton, stating that
Kamehameha was to the people of Ha
waii as Washington was to the people
of ; the United States,", the "Father of
his country,"- "first in war, first In
peace, first in the hearts of his coun
trymen. . '-.y .- . . v . ' ..
"Time will not permit me to tell all
of the important "thing la the life of
Kamenameha," the speaker said, ia
substance, "so I will mention only a
few of Lis greatest works . 5 , ; ,
Speaker Praises Kamehameha. j
. fFirav of all, Kameharoehn was a
very wise . eovereigh, and he showed
this by the way In which he command
ed his soldiers. During his conquests
the first thing of importance to him
was to take possession of the food sup
plies of his enemies lie was constant
ly striving to Wiethe hearU.of his
soldiers to himself, and this he did" by
extending justice to them, ; ; ' ;
''In case one of his'soldiers had com
mitted a crime, e called air of his
soldiers together not only to , deter
mine the punisiment of the guilty one
but as an opportunity for giving, ad
vice to his men. If the crime-was a
serious one he sent detectives into the
homes fit his jejple to find out what
the consensus of opinion -was as to the
man's guilt or innocence. He took
notes of the opinion of. the people by
means of a leaf. He would cut a leaf
Into- strips; On the right side he would
tie as tcany knots as there were opin
ions in favor qf the offender, and on
the left side he would tie a knot for
each opinion exiiressed against the
accuse-1 one.. r V- Kvf-.;-
; "Af Ur the opinions had been gath
ered by the detectives, Kamehameha
would make his decision. If the most
knots w ere on the right side; the man
would go free; but if the left side had
the greatest number, the man would
be pufliEhed.'. " ' . v';-
. The speaker pointed out that, lit the
great war of the Iao valley on Maui,
Kamehameha exhibited great military
skill before he p arched hiff 'isoldlerl
against the enemy.' - v ' ',
"Was Military Expert. : i V ; . ' -V-')
He had the outriggers taken from
the cances in Xvhich the warriors had
journeyed to the islandand then had
the canoe burled In the sand. ; Then
he warned his jnen not to return as
V ere would be no means of escape for
them from behind, and that the only
thing ieft for them to da was to march
ahead and giv battle to the enemy. -r
Kamehameha aiso achieved honors
as a brave man, the speaker said. He
never gave in to any means through
which his soldiers or followers might
be discouraged. He was steadfast, de
clared the speaker; he never allowed
his opinions to be shifted here and
there by , the" ideas .of others. ' If he
made a mistakg he would immediately
endeavor to rectify it. ' f :, ' X :
. While Kamehameha-loved pleasure,
said the speaker;,- he despised . the
wasting of time on useless amuse
ments. A larga part of his time was
spent in planning, getting more -men
for hia srniies sud wlr-ning Jhe best
men of the islands to himself. . -u-
During his address Rev. Mr. Kamau
introduced a namber of ancient chants
which impressed the l is audience. V
: Mucn credit is due to those who ar
ranged the celebration" as well as to -.those
who participated in the parade
and exercises at, tha statue. It was
a ceremony which vill long be remem
bered and doubtless will serve as a
taodel from which to pattern future
Kamebameha Day observances.
