Mark A. Robinson runs for senator, 1928.



The candidate for senator for the good of Hawaii and Hawaiians. I was born in our beloved land, and aloha for my homeland and her makaainana, my fellow people, lives within me; and should I win, this aloha will never go away, for love can never be severed by great floods.

I will always try my utmost to obtain fair laws for us all, and to always oppose all biased laws.

Stephen Parker Waipa for Sheriff, 1928.

Stephen Parker Waipa


I am the son of Captain Robert Parker Waipa. I served in the police force in various positions under A. M. Brown for 19 years and under Colonel Curtis Piehu Iaukea for two years, and was let go when William P. Jarrett became Sheriff because we are of different political parties.

I served in the armed forces of Hawaii from the rank of soldier to sergeant.

Currently, I am an inspector for the Mutual Telephone Company and worked for that organization for thirteen years.

I have faith that because of all the different things I know, that I am fully qualified to serve as the sheriff of this county, while being able to carry out all the duties of this office promptly, fairly, righteously, and intelligently, so that our beloved county can have peace.

Don’t forget to give your ballots to me so that peace can reside in our land.
