Misinformation? 1881.

[Found under: “NU HOU KULOKO.”]

Mistaken Announcement.—In Number 10 of the Paeaina [Ko Hawaii Pae Aina] of the 5th of March.  That paper had a mistaken announcement in the fourth column of the second page, pertaining to smallpox here in Koolau, Kauai; that is that the Marshal [Ilamuku] put smallpox patients in the church of Moloaa, and the school there, but that is not true. This is the truth, the Marshall of Kauai placed the smallpox patient (Kaipu) in the Catholic church and the government school that stands in Kealakaiole, Koolau. And as for the smallpox patients who died at the places quarantined in Koolau, from the first person who died until the latest that was heard, there were five total. 1 woman, 3 children, 1 old man.

(Kuokoa, 3/26/1881, p. 3)
