A NEW NEWSPAPER
Mr. J. K. Kaunamano will print a new newspaper in the near future, in the mother tongue, from the side of the Hawaiian Political Association [Hui Kalaiaina]. The printing equipment of the Catholic Mission, will be what is employed by this new spokesman, and we simply assume that his editor will be someone skilled at this work, and so too of his workers. We hope that the Hawaiian people will progress through this endeavor.
[The first issue of “Hawaii Holomua” was published on 9/18/1893. It was a daily (except for Sundays). The last issue was printed on 1/5/1895. It was not printed in Hawaiian, but in English. This paper can be found on Chronicling America!]

There are some typesetters of the [Hawaii] Holomua Newspaper setting type of that famous kaao, Leinaala, as a book; it will be ready and for sale to the public perhaps within ten days [anahulu]. Being that this was a story that was beloved by many people when it was published half in the “Elele” and finished in the newspaper “Ko Hawaii Pae Aina,” it will certainly be much sought after. The cost per copy is $1.50.
[Does anyone know of any library where this book might be found?]

We have heard that the Book, “Ke Au Hou,” will be taken over by some Republicans and its name will change to “Ka Holomua.” Perhaps that is just gossip here in Honolulu: groaning this way and that.
[See Papakilo Database for online issues: “Ke Au Hou” and “Hawaii Holomua”. I am not sure what changes were made with the name change, but the heads of the paper seem to stay the same: John H. Wise, Gulstan K. Poepoe, and Daniel K. Hoolapa…
These publications are more like literary magazines than newspapers. There are many more extant issues of “Hawaii Holomua” neither microfilmed nor available online to this day!]
