Japanese Newspapers, 1895.

Our Japanese Newspapers.

There are four Japanese newspapers being published regularly here, two dailies and two weeklies. Two of their offices are in the uplands of Peleula at the corner of Nuuanu and Kukui Streets; and two are at Aienui, above what was the shop of Chulan & Co. [Kiulana Ma], on Nuuanu Street. When we hear the little bell that sounds like the ice cream cart bell, it is the messenger of the afternoon newspaper. The press in the uplands does its printing using stone [lithograph] like the Chinese, and the lowland press uses movable type.

(Makaainana, 4/29/1895, p. 2)
