Hawaiians in Idaho, 1873.

Hawaiians Abroad—By the last mail was received from Boise City, Idaho Territory, one of the census blanks issued by the Board of Education, properly filled out with the names, ages, &c. of eight Hawaiians, all males, living in that far off land. Their occupations are, gold-diggers part of the year and wood-cutters the rest. How did that census blank get them?
