No fun to be had on the Sabbath, 1874.

[Found under: “Nu Hou Kuloko.”]

—On this past Sunday, some haole boys went to surf at the surf spot of Uo at noon of that day, and some people told the sheriff to arrest them; he responded that it was fine, and that there was no law against surfing on Sunday. We believe that if surfing is a pleasurable activity, then there is indeed a law against it.

Hawaiian Artist, 1873.

[Found under: “NU HOU KULOKO.”]

Hawaiian Artist.—Our famous artist of the Kanilehua rain sent a superb picture of a day of surfing in Hilo before the King [Lunalilo] while he was there. A gentleman who saw the painting remarked that it was indeed how the day of surfing was. Praise for our Hawaiian artist. If there was a copper plate engraver here, we would be able to print it in the newspaper.

[This must be talking about Joseph Nawahi. Does anyone know of this painting of surfing in Hilo?!]
