On population, 1873.

Population of the Hawaiian Archipelago.

In this issue, we put before as a free paper for our readers the population chart of these Hawaiian Islands for the year 1872. For those who understand the population chart, they will think that it is something valuable, but for those who think it has no value, we should probably cover the important aspects.

Population decline, 1835.

ON THE DECLINE IN POPULATION.

Waioli, Kauai, 1835.

I read the Kumu Hawaii, pepa 18, on page 140, and I thought, while we are in the midst of life, we live in the midst of death. Our friends die on our right hand, and on our left. Death is victorious over children, and elderly; over the young, and the aged. Strength cannot ward it off; it cannot be escaped through wealth nor skill. Continue reading

Aloha to you, O Tinker [Tineka]. This is a chart showing the number of people from Nualolo to Hanapepe. From 1831 to 1835, there was a great decrease of 1,992. This is the reasons for their decrease. Death is perhaps the biggest cause, but that is not all. In 1831, the alii were living here and their retinue; here as well were the teachers at that time. However, during this census in 1835, the alii were living on Oahu along with their ohua. And some people went from Waimea to Waioli to live with the new teacher there. So too some people from Koloa. For these reasons, the people here in Kona [Kauai] have sharply decreased.  By Whitney [Wini].
