DAVID BONAPARTE HAUMEA.
This is the tall and husky officer and fisherman and handsome youth who directs and brings order to traffic at Fort and Merchant streets. He has a great many friends, and no enemies, and he has one of the biggest families in Honolulu, and is ——- years old today.

Officer From the Time of King Kalakaua Dies.
On last Wednesday, the 17th of this month, Thomas Hina grew weary of this life at 80 years old. On Thursday his funeral was held at the mortuary of Townsend and Borthwick.
When Kalakaua was the ruler of Hawaii nei, he was one of the police officers, and at his death, his badge, number 1, was placed upon him, showing that he was one of the oldest officers, and he was the first officer from the reign of King Kalakaua.
For a long time now, Thomas Hina was living on Nuuanu Avenue, and when he died, he left behind his son, John Hina.

SHERIFF SAMUEL K. PUA, THE FAMED DETECTIVE OF THE ISLAND OF KEAWE
HIS AMAZING WORK OVER THESE PAST YEARS
HIS ACCOMPLISHMENTS ARE A “PROUD LEI FOR THE PEOPLE TO WEAR FOR ALL TIMES.”
[This is the headline to an in-depth three-page story complete with pictures of the detective work of Sam K. Pua (10/27/1867–8/1/1932), as appears in the final issue of Hoku o Hawaii for 1914! I have yet to come across another story given that much coverage in one issue of a newspaper.
The issues of Hoku o Hawaii before 5/31/1917 are as of yet not available online.]
