More on Nupepa Elele and its missing pages, 2013.

Nupepa Elele. Missing Issues.

Nupepa Elele. Missing Issues.

I did a quick spreadsheet on the currently missing issues of Nupepa Elele. If we consider that each issue comprised of four pages, that would mean at this point, with approximately 561 issues missing of a total of 663 issues, that we are without information printed on 2,244 pages running from 1879 to 1892! These issues could be somewhere in these islands, or far, far away. Spread the word that we are looking for Hawaiian newspapers. More newspaper pages would give a clearer view of history/histories. Perhaps some day, i will complete one of these spreadsheets for each of the Hawaiian-Language Newspapers, showing what is available now, and what is missing.

[It is also unfortunate that a number of the issues of Nupepa Elele that do exist today are torn and taped, and in general are badly digitized, so if you are looking at them online, they are difficult (or simply impossible) to read!]

Nupepa Elele

Missing newspapers leave holes in histories, 1881.

[Found under: “LOCAL NEWS”]

We have received from P. R. Holi of Kauai, a response to the Elele, and what it published about him; this is his response which we accepted with great import: It is true, it was my friend and I who brought Kamahueeu, a person inflicted with leprosy [mai pake], and some other sick ones from Hanapepe without any problem to Lihue to the Sheriff [Makai nui], and then after completing this duty for him, I returned home; it was not me who caused him harm, it was some other officer; therefore, the Elele was totally misdirected in its publishing this, and the one who wrote the story was mistaken.

[Hopefully the missing years of the newspaper “Ka Nupepa Elele” (1879–1885), which includes the year the article referred to here appears, will not be missing forever! Might anyone have any ideas where these might be found?

It also should be noted that responding to a news article appearing in one newspaper in another paper like the response above, was a very common practice.]

Deaths in Kalawao, 1885–1886.

THE DEATHS IN THE COLONY OF KALAWAO DURING THE YEAR OF 1885 AND THE YEAR 1886 WHICH IS GOING ON NOW.

Mr. J. U. Kawainui, Editor of the Newspaper Ko Hawaii Pae Aina—Aloha oe:—

This past July, I sent to the newspaper Elele, the Name List of the leprosy patients who died in this Colony; however, the Elele didn’t publish the names of those who died as per what I sent them. Why would that be? Could it be the editor of the Elele is not interested in publishing the names of those who left hardships of this life? Does the Editor of the Elele think that putting before the public the names of those who departed this life is something trivial?

Therefore, O Untiring J. U. Kawainui, I ask of your kindness, if your newspaper can take and insert the names of those who died in the Colony, so that our friends living from Hawaii to Niihau can see, being that the friends of some of these people might believe that their patients brought here are still living; some sent letters but have received no response from here, because it is too late [ua hala e ka Puulena aia i Hilo], and therefore I thought to make this known to the public, but that Elele was too confined; that information being this:
