There are a number of Hawaiians planing a new Hawaiian newspaper for the Island of Hawaii, under the direction of John Kai. This will perhaps be a newspaper that fights against the Board of Supervisors [Papa Lunakiai] and the Chairman [Lunahoomalu]. And there is other word that it will wrestle with the Hoku. That is their business.

Put before us was a handwritten newspaper called “Mamalahoa Kanawai.” Perhaps it will only come out with one issue and it will perish. Or perhaps also it will flourish.
[Anyone know of this newspaper?]

[Found under: “LOCAL NEWS: Oahu.”]
We have come into possession of a Hawaiian newspaper printed in the city of London, in which was the story of the Wasteful Child [Keiki Uhauha], along with an illustration of the Wayward Child [Keiki Auwana], in preparation for their meeting each other in person after a long separation. It is true that it is probably the Bishop that put it together.
[There is no indication whether this paper is in the Hawaiian-Language or whether it is in English. Might anyone know what this refers to? There seems to have been a chapbook or pamphlet that was available in the 1860s called “Ka hoi ana mai o ke Keiki Uhauha”.]

A New Newspaper
Here below is the entire body of our new companion; “Ka Eleu [The Lively One]” is its name.
This is a paper printed monthly in Hamakua Waena, edited by its publisher, who is Rev. J. Bicknell.
In it is printed the news of Hamakua, of the entirety of Hawaii, and important news of our nation and of foreign lands. This is a new paper, and all of its columns are but only handwritten. It has a very small body, but it is filled with tasty fruit that you will savor, O Reader.
Look to it and give it your aloha—don’t look down upon it. Reading different books as well as newspapers will increase one’s thinking. It hopes to become a companion to talk to, should you decide to subscribe to it.
