Description
In the following index of the islands of the Territory of Hawaii and vicinity and the geographical features of those islands, the aríchipelago is divided into three groups, namely: (1) the Main Group, comprising all islands from Hawaii to Niihau, including islets lying offshore from the main islands; (2) the Leeward Islands from Ni-lioa. to kure, consisting of a chain of islands, atolls, and shoals, exítending from beyond Kauai west-north-west for 1,100 miles; and (8) Other Islands, being certain islands scattered in the North Paícific Ocean and generally acknowledged to have been under Haíwaiian sovereignty, or to which Hawaii had some claim and to which claim the United States has succeeded.

Excerpt
In collecting the names from the primary source, the thirty-three maps and quadrangles of the islands, except those of the re-survey of Oahu, were marked in rectangles, the sides of which were one minute long, and the named geographic features located to the nearíest minute of latitude and longitude. The names are'listed exactly as they are spelled on the quadrangles and maps. No decisions have been made as to whether the names are correct. However, the Haíwaiian place names which appear in the Sixth Report of the United States Geographic Board have been compared with the same names in the gazetteer, and where the spelling is different, the nomenclaíture of that Board is given in parentheses with the letters U.S.G.B. Names which appear in that report of the United States Geographic Board and which do not appear on maps are also included.
