Arthur Rice at Kipukai throwing net, 1910.

WITH A THROW NET.

The many pictures below show Arthur Rice fishing with a throw net, one of the foremost fishermen using a throw net. These are pictures taken recently at Kipukai, Kauai.

THE SEA IS VERY ROUGH FOR THROWING NET.

THROWING.

GOING TO RETRIEVE THE NET.

RETURNING TO LAND WITH THE NET AND THE FISH CAUGHT.

[The newspapers don’t only contain words. After about 1900 there appear photos, and many like these  are much clearer in the original. There needs to be clear shots of the papers done. I almost could not make out some of the text in the top description!]

[This newspaper, Ka Elele Poakolu, is yet another one not available online even if it is microfilmed. I am not sure how ulukau.org missed digitizing this when they were under agreement many years ago to put up all of the available newspapers online… To view the pages, you have to find your way down to one of the institutions which have Hawaiian-Language Newspaper microfilms.

Might anyone have any biographical information on Mrs. Kaleihiwahiwa?]

HE KAPA NO KAPIOLANI...

Ka Elele Poakolu, Buke II, helu 6, Aoao 6. Aperila 13, 1881.

The original newspapers won’t be around forever, 2012.

Today i noticed there is yet another volunteer project trying to get people to type in text from the Hawaiian-Language Newspapers using images that are not clear. This time people are being asked to correct text done by Cambodians.  I won’t speak on the ramifications of using Cambodians to OCR Hawaiian newspapers, because that is a whole separate issue in itself.

I will say once again, however, that i believe the information written in the Hawaiian-Language Newspapers is important enough to reproduce accurately so that we can search and find what was originally written within its pages. I don’t know if there is anyone who feels any different.

The example given in the ad calling for volunteers shows precisely why we need to FIRST get good, clean images of the newspapers AND THEN typescript them so they are word-searchable. The highlighted column will never be fully legible using this image, because there is a big fold running down the left side, obscuring two or three letters in each line. There are pages and pages like this (and many are even less legible).

Is getting 70 or 80 or 90% of the words sufficient? What if your kupuna wrote something or was written about; would 90% of it be good enough for you? What if the one time her name was mentioned in the article was a part that was folded over, or was too dark to read…

Volunteer for the inside???

Punchbowl to go to the rich, 1912.

CRYING IN REGRET

Honolulu, Aug. 10—The government has set aside the home lots at Puoina [Punchbowl] to be auctioned off. The prices have gone much higher than their value. What is so sad is that some homes which have been lived in by people for a long time will go to those who have a lot of money.

When these people who have homesteaded on these lands for many years in the past learned that their homes will go to the rich, some sat down in chairs and cried in despair over all the long years spent saving. How sad for those people who will lose their homes!

This is one of the things that Representative Kuhio opposes in the administering of the government by Governor Frear, that being the putting up for open auction lands suitable for Homesteads. It is clear that the poor will be crushed by the wealthy. Listen, oh you poor people, think carefully about your Representative of Honolulu, and choose a Representative who supports Kuhio, the one who is fighting for the rights of the poor Homesteaders [na poe Home Hookuonoono].

[The newspaper in which this article appears, “Ka Hoku o Hawaii,” is only available online from the middle of 1917. Although ulukau.org received funding many years ago to digitize all Hawaiian-Language Newspapers, many inexplicably fell through the crack. All the twelve prior years (which includes the issue from which this article was taken) can at this stage only be seen on microfilm…]
