Newspapers of the past, 1889.

Ka Oiaio newspaper said that the Paeaina [Ko Hawaii Paeaina] newspaper will perish sometime these day. Hey! “Just like the wish, so too is the desire.” The Paeaina is telling you, O Ailuene Buki [John E. Bush], don’t go off and get stranded in that desire. When Ka Oiaio is being buried in the grave of Ka Hoku o ke Kai, Ke Ola o Hawaii, Ka La o Hawaii, Ka Hoonanea, Na Lani Ehiku, Ka Elele Poakolu, Ka Elele puka la, Ke Alakai o Hawaii and the Makaainana, while the Paeaina continues to move forward, shining a light upon the glory and the good name of Hawaii nei; consistently fending off rebels and those trying to overthrow the nation to make Hawaii lose its independence, so that it can’t grow in the future. E Johnnie! Don’t open up your mouth again lest you get a welt on the forehead from the Paeaina.
