It is always a good thing to read an article in its entirety before coming to any conclusions about it. It might be difficult to see, but what the Daily Bulletin is saying here is sarcastic.
The annexationist paper, Nupepa Puka La Kuokoa, printed 1,200 copies thinking because of their cheap subscription rates they would get Hawaiians to buy the copies up, and yet they only got rid of 80 copies. And at the time even the haole annexationists could understand Hawaiian. How many of those 80 do you think were bought by them?
It is good to read, and to think.
