Ke Ola o Hawaii to begin, 1916.


HILO, February 19.—Ke Ola o Hawaii, or The Life of Hawaii, is the name of a new  weekly newspaper here for which articles of incorporation have been asked. The paper, which is to make its appearance next month, will be unique in that it will be published in both English and Hawaiian and also that it is to be strictly non-partisan. At least this is the assertion of the promoters and officers, who are of practically all political faiths. Continue reading

Journalism at the Crossroads

(Continued From Page One.)

community being much interested in the doings and sayings of such public men as Roosevelt, Wilson, Taft, Bryan and other prominent figures.

Familiar Faces.

The pictures of these men, and others, appear in the Japanese dailies almost as frequently as they do in the American dailies. What congress is doing is also of absorbing interest. The probability of a reduction in the sugar tariff is viewed this way and that by the Japanese editors. No item of world’s news is neglected and everything that especially affects Hawaii is “played up” in true journalistic fashion. Continue reading

Newspaper history, 1913.


If the newsboys of Honolulu carried under their arms copies of each newspaper in the city, besides those published in the English language, they would be pretty well loaded down and their calls would include the following journals, popular with thousands of readers to whom they cater: O Luso, Nupepa Kuokoa, Ke Aloha Aina, Ka Momi o Hawaii, Hawaii Shinpo, Japanese-Daily Chronicle, Nippu Jiji, Hawaii Hochi, Wah Hing Bo, Sun Chung Kwock Bo, Hon Mun Sun Bo, Chee Yow Shin Bo, United Korean News, Korean Times and many other that play an important part in their particular fields of activity.

Mail delivery in Kona, 1869.

Pertaining to the Letter Carriers in Kona.

I have great praise for the work of the Letter Carriers from Kealakekua to  Waiohinu; great as well is my praise for the vigilance of the people of South Kona in regard to their Letters and Newspapers. At each group of houses [kauhale] all the way to Manuka, there is a Mail Box on the side of the rode, and it is there that the Letters that the kamaaina want to send are left, and it is there too that Letter Carrier leaves the Letters and Newspapers for that place. There are perhaps twenty Mail Boxes on that road. This is as per the decree of the Postmaster General [Luna Leta Nui], to carry the Letter Bag partially empty, delivering and picking up at each group of houses. This happened within this year in South Kona. But in North Kona, this is not happening, and perhaps in other places as well. Continue reading

Hae Hawaii Volume 3 starts, 1858.

To be Published


AT THE OFFICE OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION [HALE AOPALAPALA], Honolulu, every Wednesday, beginning on the 7th of April, 1858. J. Fuller [J. PULA] Editor.

This is the cost of the newspaper: For one year, 52 papers, $1.50, paid in advance. If however there are many subscribers of the Hae in one district, the luna of that district may slightly lessen the cost of the Hae, and this is how the decrease will be: If the luna gets 10 subscribers or more per one bundle, then he can lessen the cost to $1.25 for the paper for a year; This is the rule for the Hae of 1858: When you pay in advance for the cost, then you will receive the paper; we will not send a single paper if we do not receive payment first, and then we will send the paper.

This is the cost for printing Advertisements: If it is 12 lines or less, it is a $1.00 for the first printing, and a quarter for the second printing, and so forth.

Send all letters for the Hae Hawaii to J. Pula, at the Office of the Board of Education, Honolulu.
