Where are the missing issues?

This is the first page of the first issue of the daily Alakai o Hawaii newspaper available online. It is a paper that ran Mondays through Saturdays. This is already the 8th issue of the 1st Volume. Where are the first seven? And after this, there are only the 12th, 18th, and 52nd issues available (41 missing issues)!

There is an announcement on the second page of the 8/31/1887 issue saying that they are boosting their print run from 600 copies to 800. Hopefully that means more copies possibly can be found. Keep your eyes peeled!
