We investigate Lyα, [O iii] λ5007, Hα, and [C ii] 158 μm emission from 1124 galaxies at z = 4.9-7.0. Our sample is composed of 1092 Lyα emitters (LAEs) at z = 4.9, 5.7, 6.6, and 7.0 identified by Subaru/Hyper-Suprime-Cam (HSC) narrowband surveys covered by Spitzer Large Area Survey with Hyper-Suprime-Cam (SPLASH) and 34 galaxies at z = 5.148-7.508 with deep ALMA [C ii] 158 μm data in the literature. Fluxes of strong rest-frame optical lines of [O iii] and Hα (Hβ) are constrained by significant excesses found in the SPLASH 3.6 and 4.5 μm photometry. At z = 4.9, we find that the rest-frame Hα equivalent width and the Lyα escape fraction f Lyα positively correlate with the rest-frame Lyα equivalent width fLyα positively correlate with the rest-frame Lyα equivalent width EWLyα0 . The correlation is similarly found at z ∼ 0-2, suggesting no evolution of the correlation over z ≃ 0-5. The typical ionizing photon production efficiency of LAEs is log(ξ ion/[Hz erg-1]) ≃ 25.5, significantly (60%-100%) higher than those of LBGs at a given UV magnitude. At z = 5.7-7.0, there exists an interesting turnover trend that the [O iii]/Hα flux ratio increases in and then decreases out to . We also identify an anticorrelation between a ratio of [C ii] luminosity to star formation rate (L [C ii]/SFR) and at the >99% confidence level.. We carefully investigate physical origins of the correlations with stellar-synthesis and photoionization models and find that a simple anticorrelation between and metallicity explains self-consistently all of the correlations of Lyα, Hα, [O iii]/Hα, and [C ii] identified in our study, indicating detections of metal-poor (∼0.03 Z o) galaxies with .
