It has since recorded the coming and going in Hawaii of three kings, aj queen, a provisional government, a republic, and the coming and present J existence of the Territory of Hawaii. It first saw Honolulu a thatched village with dirt lanes for streets; a population of barelv 20,000 on the whole island of Oahu, its business chiefly catering to the whaling fleet and. the mob of roistering sailors who wintered j and literally "spent their money like drunken sailors" along the waterfront! and "Fid Alley as lower Nuuanu street was then known. i The permanent population was almost exclusively Hawaiian, with a! sprinkling of missionaries, traders and beachcombers, and a few others j whom the "lure of the tropics" had beguiled, or diplomacy had stationed! here.
