Ma ka ʻōlelo hoʻoholo a ka Luna Hoʻokolokolo Kollar-Kotelly, ua ʻae ʻokoʻa ʻo ia i ka moʻolelo o ke Aupuni Mōʻī Hawaiʻi, ʻo ia hoʻi, he aupuni kūʻokoʻa ia a hoʻokahuli ʻia kona aupuni i ka 1893 a hoʻoholo ʻia ma ka hoʻokolokolo ʻana ua hewa nā kuhina pūʻali koa ʻAmelika ma ke kōkua ʻana i ka hoʻokahuli ʻana i ke aupuni o ke Aupuni Mōʻī a ua hoʻoili ka Mōʻī Wahine Liliʻuokalani i kona mana mōʻī i ka pelekikena o ʻAmelika, ʻo Grover Cleveland, ā hiki i ka wā e hoʻihoʻi hou ʻia ai kona aupuni.

CORRECTION

» The English-language synopsis for the Hawaiian-language column "Kauakukalahale" on Page A15 Saturday should have read: Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly acknowledges the validity of the Cleveland-Liliuokalani Agreement. The column included an incorrect synopsis.
