E please mai hoi oe, e ke aloha, 1920.

Those who are in debt in paying for the life of our Hoku newspaper, please keep its life in mind for the upcoming year. The cost of the paper used to print the Hoku is rising, and it is only fair for the people who are in debt to its life remember. Please.

[The subscription rate for the Hoku remained at $2.00 per year for its entire existence. The first privately run newspapers Hoku o ka Pakipika and Nupepa Kuokoa (from the 1860s) both went for that rate as well!

With the times being how they are, first, consider giving donations to food banks and organizations that are providing help to those in need physically and emotionally, and then second, perhaps consider giving a donation to the Library & Archives at Bishop Museum who care for much of the old newspapers and so much more history of Hawaii nei.]

(Hoku o Hawaii, 12/16/1920, p. 4)

Ka Hoku o Hawaii, Buke XIV, Helu 30, Aoao 4. Dekemaba 16, 1920.
